Not so much for discussion (though some may want to read and discuss it), but this morning I found this journal article and thought some of you might want to read it:
John R. Rice, Bob Jones Jr., and the “Mechanical Dictation” Controversy, by Nathan A. Finn in The Journal of Baptist Studies 6 (2014).
"For all their demonstrable differences in applying biblical separation, Rice and Jones also split, in part, over a dispute about the nature of biblical inspiration. Jones and the Bible...

EXIT: The Appeal of Suicide
Not sure when the DVD version will be available but I imagine in the next month or so. I think Ray and the staff at Living Waters did a great job at tackling a very common problem in our society today and perhaps also in the church.
Word has reached my ear that some of my critics on this board believe that I hold to liberal exegesis which is completely false. Check out this article.
Liberal Christianity - Wikipedia
Instead, liberal Christian theologians have an allegorical interpretation of the Bible which emphasizes the moral or other spiritual lessons which can be learned from its stories......Many liberals prefer to read Jesus' miracles as metaphorical narratives for understanding the power of God.[9
Church is not into contact evangelism so street evangelism, open air preaching, going door to door are not activities they would engage in unfortunately. They do have a nursing home ministry and I have preached before in such environments back in SC however my preaching may be too harsh in such an environment where the church assumes everyone is saved. Yes back in SC that's what the leadership assumed and when I modeled myself after some sermons that a Ray Comfort or rev brother Paul Washer...
26 For you see your calling, brothers, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God has chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, has God chosen, yes, and things which are not, to bring to nothing things that are:
29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
Was listening to TWOTM Radio podcast today as I took my walk and Todd encountered an evangelical conditionalist who insisted that Hell did not go on forever. Todd repeatedly used Matt 25 which speaks of eternal life and eternal punishment for the damned but it did not sink in. How do you dodge this passage of scripture?
There has to be a difference but oftentimes the two are mingled together. I'd say heretics are those that teach anther gospel and or compromise the essential core doctrines of the faith, while a false teacher may just teach a false view on something. Ie Joel Osteen is a heretic, while according to my view those that teach Evangelical Conditionalism I believe to be false teachers.
Those that teach one has to tithe 10% in order to be...
Often we hear and read of theologians claiming that God exists "outside" of time and yet one can look in vain to find such language ever used in the Bible. They simply do not understand the nature of time. They think that time is a "dimension" or "sphere" rather than a measurement of things that have a beginning and end.
God does not exist outside of time, He just cannot be measured by time. The best way to illustrate time is to take a tape measure. A tape measure has a clip at the end...
John 20:31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
1. The gospel was put in writing that we may believe
2. We must believe in Jesus Christ.
3. Believing in Jesus provides new life. You are now living and no longer dead.
