  1. This year's "Christmas is Satanic" debate

    I always wondered what was in fruitcake to make it taste like it does. Thanks for the recipe.
  2. We are to be wise with how we live while we are here on this earth. There is nothing wrong with setting money aside for emergencies or even retirement. Scripture is full of wisdom on how to deal with money and how we should use it. Maybe Christ will come back in my lifetime but if He doesn't I still can be a good steward of what God has given me and I can make sure that my family is taken care of if for some reason I can't work or whatever.
  3. I tell you what, if the salvation that I have in Christ, could be lost then woe is me because I would never be saved, neither would anyone else for that matter. I would hate to have to work for my salvation. I know I would never be good enough to be saved. And just when I thought I was close I would sin again and then have to do it all over again. No once saved always saved. Even when we sin our status as a Christian is not changed (that is if we are truly a Christian) but the fellowship that we have is tarnished. Thankfully we can mend that fellowship by confessing our sins and turning from them so that we can have that perfect fellowship with the Lord. Sin is a part of who we are and while we are on this earth we will sin no matter how mature we are in Christ. I am so looking forward to the day when I can have a perfect fellowship with the Lord without the effects of sin in my life. I am tired of sin and having to battle with it every single day and I praise the Lord that I am saved and that the Hope I have is secure.
  4. Why do people hate Paul Washer?

    Our faith still actually means something. What the problem is that our faith is producing anything and we are not being a good steward of what God has given us. Are you saying that a person isn't saved if they are not doing good works as a Christian? What you are doing is just taking scriptures here and there to try and somehow justify your arguments that faith and works are what saves. Scripture, as others have pointed out, teaches that "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17. Also can you show us how Ephesians 2:8 teaches that we have to do good works along with faith? What you have done is twisted the scripture, and quite horribly I might add. Here is what Ephesians 2:8-9 actually says, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast." You cannot separate verse 9. The verse teaches that salvation is only through faith. Faith is not the gift, salvation is. Works, regardless of how good they are, are absolutely worthless because works causes man to boast in what they can do. If my salvation was merited on my faith and my works I would not be saved. Question: What happens is a person does something that is sinful? Can Christians sin? See the problem with you belief is that in order for my faith to save me then my works have to be spot on as well. And unless I am sinless I am going to do both good things and unfortunately because of sin I am going to do bad things(I try not to but I am not sinless, at least not in this life). What makes this even more difficult is that you will make a statement, saying you agree, and then make another statement that contradicts what you just agreed with. This is what makes us question your statements. They are not consistent. This is what you are doing with your posts unfortunately. I have read through all the other posts and Yowm, Sojourner and others have used God's Word appropriately and have shown the truth of the gospel that scripture teaches.
  5. Why do people hate Paul Washer?

    The good works a Christian produces is because of his faith in Christ. Works, regardless of does them, does not save period. Ephesians 2:8-9 (a well-known verse) clearly teaches that it is faith an faith alone that saves. End of story.
  6. Why do people hate Paul Washer?

    People don't like Paul Washer, or any other conservative preacher for that matter, because they would rather live how they want instead of living in obedience to God's Word. I can't though figure out why people will subject themselves to preachers they do not like and then start verbal telling others how much they can't stand listening to them. If one doesn't like a certain preaching style or what don't like what they teach then move on and listen to someone else. Its a pretty easy solution. I think people like to grumble and complain about something.
  7. Is this story real? About Paul Washer

    Funny just the same. I have always liked the Babylonian Bee. They can come up with some really great stories that are clean and I can have a nice chuckle.
  8. Dating Sites

    Problem with dating sites is that there are a number of men that pose as women. So you never really know who is on the other end of the internet. Plenty of predators out there to play with your mind. Caution is definitely warranted.
  9. Dating Sites

    Christian dating sites do not promote adultery. However they, like any other dating site, make it easy for adultery to occur. Anyone can post on a dating site to find a potential spouse or whatever. No people choose to commit adultery whether it is through a website or not. A christian dating website can be used for good or it can be used for evil. It is however the user decides how to use it. As for the adultery part I do agree. Scripture is pretty clear on marriage and remarriage and yes if the two divorced people remarry it is adultery. When you take Matthew 5:32 "But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery." and then I Corinthians 7:10-11 "To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.", you get a pretty clear principle that it is adultery. I guess you could say, "Well these scriptures only apply to a divorced woman" however the principle is there and it applies to the man as well. Sadly though there are those that don't want to here this stuff because it goes against what they want to do. Reconciliation is a must with your spouse regardless of what was done and if the does not occur then the scripture says you must remain single until that reconciliation occurs. Now this is just my interpretation of what scripture teaches and I am sure there are others more qualified to speak on this matter than I am. Bottom line is divorce, remarriage (under the wrong circumstances) and adultery cheapen the meaning of marriage and the picture that it represents. I am thankful that Jesus Christ is faithful even when we are not. If he was unfaithful what a sham we would be living in. But thankfully He is not and is greater than all our faults and running from Him as much as we do.
  10. The evils of sandwich making by wives

    My wife doesn't make me lunch and I am fine with that. It doesn't bother me one way or the other. Quite honestly my wife is ok with me doing things for myself. I prefer most times to make my own breakfast and lunch. My wife is pretty good about making dinner. I thought the OP post was rather humorous actually. I read through some of the comments and I thought some took the OP post way to seriously. Sure my wife enjoys serving me but I sure don't expect it nor do I demand it. Not that the OP was saying this but I think it seems there is a misunderstanding in the Christian circles as to what submission really is. Anyway that is my two cents.
  11. The evils of sandwich making by wives

    Lol. I totally agree with you on this one
  12. who is igotquestions?

    You are absolutely correct. No site is perfect. These sites should never take the place of God's Word. They are there to help us in our study. Too many people though (and I know some in our own church) use websites to support their beliefs versus God's Words supporting their beliefs and the websites are only a source of help.
  13. who is igotquestions?

    Yeah I think GotQuestions.org is a great resource. They stick with God's Word and are really good at comparing scripture to scripture. I don't know if they are calvinists or not. I read through their statement of faith and it seems pretty legitimate to me and I don't see Calvinist leanings in the statement. I guess if one really wants to know send them an email and ask. I am sure they will let you know. I just sent them an email and I will get back with you when I get a response.
  14. Christian music: Is it all good?

    Can you explain to me how they look and sound Satanic? Its kind of the same argument that a gun looks and acts like a killer. Music is music and can be used for good or bad. It is the musician's motives that need to be questioned not the music. The members of Skillet and RED are professing Christians that use their music in the secular and christians world. Their music is clean and at least people know who they are. When they are in concert the gospel is definitely given.
  15. Christian music: Is it all good?

    I listen to all types of music. There are good songs and bad songs. There are Christians songs that I cannot stand because of sound, lyrics or whatever. I listen to secular music as well. My kids do to. When my wife is in the car or house we listen to southern gospel (not my favorite). When I am in the car or in the house and the wife isn't there we have anything from Christian rock to AC/DC and other bands. Here is my point. Everyone has a preference in music and how they feel about music genres. Most of it is personal preference. What I find disturbing is when those personal preferences somehow are supported from a mishmash of verses here and there. This is what I find with most people. To the OP this is what I say, you are the parents and you have rules in your house. If you have a rule that says we in this house do not listen to rock music then the child should obey and accept that fact. If you as the parents are uncomfortable with it then make a decision one way or another. You can ask all the advice you want in a forum but you have to make the decision on your own. If you believe there is something wrong with it then by all means set the rules. We do have rules in my house who we listen to and who we do not. My kids abide by those rules. Just plain and simple parenting.
