  1. 'For All the Saints Who from Their Labors Rest"by William W. How, 1823-1897 1. For all the saints who from their labors rest, Who Thee by faith before the world confess, Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest, Alleluia! Alleluia! 2. Thou wast their Rock, their Fortress, and their Might; Thou, Lord, their Captain in the well-fought fight; Thou, in the darkness drear, their one true Light. Alleluia! Alleluia! 3. Oh, may Thy soldiers, faithful, true and bold, Fight as the saints who nobly fought of old And win with them the victor's crown of gold. Alleluia! Alleluia! 4. O blest communion, fellowship divine, We feebly struggle, they in glory shine; Yet all are one in Thee, for all are Thine. Alleluia! Alleluia! 5. And when the fight is fierce, the warfare long, Steals on the ear the distant triumph song, And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong. Alleluia! Alleluia! 6. But, lo, there breaks a yet more glorious day; The saints triumphant rise in bright array; The King of Glory passes on His way. Alleluia! Alleluia! 7. From earth's wide bounds, from ocean's farthest coast, Through gates of pearl streams in the countless host, Singing to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia! Alleluia! 8. The golden evening brightens in the west; Soon, soon, to faithful warriors cometh rest. Sweet is the calm of Paradise the blest. Alleluia! Alleluia! Hymn #463 The Lutheran Hymnal Text: Heb. 12:1 Author: William W. How, 1864, cento Composer: R. Vaughan Williams, 1906, arr. Tune: "Sine nomine"
  2. I think that is a matter of word definition and not culture where 'stoned' has more than one meaning. There are many Greek words that have more than one English definition but we wouldn't ascribe the difference to culture, just word meaning.
  3. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Rom 10:17) Without the Scriptures what assurance do you have that you are hearing the Word of God from any spirit? Even the Ethiopian Eunuch and Phillip used Isaiah 53. Do you believe that the Holy Spirit is the Author of Scripture?
  4. I'm not talking about facts but about spiritual truths. Is the Holy Spirit needed to reveal spitiual truth of the Scriptures or does it take 'extensive knowledge of the Jewish, Greek and Roman religions'? Did you come up with the conviction that Jesus is truly God in the flesh by history and cultural books or through the Holy Spirit opening your eyes to His preached/written Word?
  5. It seems by what you say, the Holy Spirit is not needed to reveal truth. I gave you Scripture as proof of what I asserted, you give me your opinions. If we are to have Christian fellowship it will have to be in reference to God's Word. Here is another verse showing it takes a work of God for the natural man to grasp spiritual realities. Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. (Mat 16:13-17)
  6. That sounds like doctrine to me, dangerous doctrine at that...here, take a look. So as you can see, doctrine is extremely important.
  7. Isn't Google's robot smart enough to know which was posted first? At least that should be given some weight in it's determination of the thief.
  8. Sure the unbeliever can understand a direct encounter by God as Paul did, but that is a bit different from having an unbeliever explain the spiritual things of the bible. 1 Corinthians 2:10-11,14 KJV [10] But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. [11] For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. [14] But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them , because they are spiritually discerned. The unbeliever shines pretty bright when it comes to the law and what it demands but stumbles over their own pride when it comes to the free gift of salvation found in Jesus...the Gospel runs counter to our natural way of thinking.
  9. That's right and that's why I didn't report it because I've been guilty of the same, esp with Obama/Clinton.
  10. I suppose we could let the Mods decide that one for this board. Personally, I would say so since it was an opinion of yours not a statemnt of fact.
  11. "Disrespectful or threatening comments toward governmental institutions and/or world leaders will not be tolerated."(1 Pet. 2:13-17) -TOS (hehe)
  12. Often in a class where there is no teacher...spit wads will fly. LOL The OP may be ideal in a Church setting, but this forum is quite open to much else. Some are guided by the Teacher, some are devoid of Him.
  13. They will 'leave it be' or will leave it as in 'bye-bye'?
  14. Then see to the ones who throw the first stone when a thread gets started. It has happened to me a number of times.
