Ephesians 6:1-4

Oklahoma Howdy to Jabez,

Thanks Brother. This is one of many beautiful portions of Scripture for Christian families. I give thanks for my Godly parents.

In Christ,
Tom

Is five years old an age where a child could accept Christianity as their own personal religion?  Or is it an age where the child simply wants to make their parents happy so they say "I'm saved" just to earn praise?

Not to criticize...I'm just making a point.  Wouldn't it be more rewarding if your daughter had come to her own decision to accept Christ?

~aaaa

aaaa,

This is a new low for you and certainly not a place or time to make "oh great darkness - void - nothing points". This would be a perfect example of why everyone needs an "ignore button" for you. aaaa, this is a precious family time you should have left alone.  I thought about deleting your post, but it's a picture of you with your horns showing, a graphic example of who you really are. Please don't respond to this post.

Fair enough, but how does that further the debate?
Whatever the dabate was.

Ebia,

I think that you just answered a big question. Everyone is so interested in bashing each other's churches and denominations that nobody knows what the discussion is about.

The point is really simple. There will be no denominations in heaven, no big ones and no little ones. There will only be saved people who accepted Jesus Christ into their hearts as their Lord and Saviour. All of the man-made doctrines, dogmas, creeds, ceremonies, rituals, etc., etc. will all be gone and mean absolutely nothing. The Bible translation you used will also mean nothing. What's in your heart is the only thing that will make any difference between those in heaven and those in hell.

There will be many who sat in church once a week for all the wrong reasons and won't be in heaven. There won't be much laughter about what was important and what was folly.

 Grin  ROFL, Symphony - I'm skipping the soup. I at least know where the Civil Defense stuff has been.
56720  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re:Going on a health kick on: September 16, 2003, 12:47:08 AM

Say, bep, are you serious, 'bout dem biscuits thar??  I'm sure that diet would take care of me for sure!

Oklahoma Howdy to Symphony,

 Grin  The Civil Defense biscuits are guaranteed. After several days, you wouldn't have any teeth left. That would leave the yummy, wax-sealed containers of 50 year old water to drink. These were in big drums, and I bet you could still live in using them, BUT NOT VERY WELL. UM??, the packaging might taste better than the contents.  Grin

Just wondering, do you represent or belong to God? I can't tell, so I thought I would ask.
I try to (not necessarly very well), and yes, in that order.

Ebia,

Your answer still leaves me with, "I can't tell", so I'll ask a more direct question.

Have you accepted Jesus Christ into your heart as your personal LORD and SAVIOUR, LORD over your life?
56722  Theology / General Theology / Re:The History of Scripture on: September 15, 2003, 11:39:39 PM
1.  Few if any denominations have only one opinion on the truth.
2.  Not all denominations carry equal weight - the 1st church of the great banana, founded 1998, membership 27, would hardly carry the same authority as, say, the Methodist Church, or the RCC (for example)


Ebia,

This is for thought, not argument. First, take every denomination in existence and add them to the list you have above. I'm positive that Almighty God could care less who has more church buildings or who has more members. In terms of authority, recognition, and weight, I would say that all denominations known to man have exactly zero in the eyes of Almighty God. HE would quickly recognize HIS children, and to the rest HE would say, "I never knew you."
56723  Theology / Apologetics / Re:Intolerance on: September 15, 2003, 09:56:14 PM

Maybe it's because the people who claim to represent God so often come across as selfish, bigotted, narrow-minded science-fearing sadoes.

Ebia,

Just wondering, do you represent or belong to God? I can't tell, so I thought I would ask.
56724  Theology / Apologetics / Re:Intolerance on: September 15, 2003, 09:50:58 PM
Yes, isn't it interesting that those who are "free thinkers', atheists, homosexuals, and such, will tolerate anything that is evil. Their mantra is "Choice" and "who am I or you to judge another".

Yet, espouse a Christian Worldview and all hell breaks loose.

Could it be because that their father is the devil?

Psalm 119

Oklahoma Howdy to Psalm 119,

I think that you just unraveled a great mystery with your post. However, I bet they won't thank you for it. It's far too logical, simple, and true, so they will wish to shoot the messenger.

In Christ,
Tom
56725  Theology / Apologetics / Re:Intolerance on: September 15, 2003, 09:41:09 PM

Stop being so arrogant and condescending by assuming you know everything about the "poor, angry, uneducated atheists".  

~AAAA

AAAA,

The thread title is intolerance. Are you lashing out at God, the person who mentioned God, or both? I didn't see your name in the post or even a casual hint that anyone could be referring to you. Are you feeling convicted about something?
56726  Welcome / Questions, help, suggestions, and bug reports / Re:Our ranking on: September 15, 2003, 09:04:42 PM

I don't care what rank I am.  I just want a peanut butter and jelly sammich--smucker's pb, and grape jelly--on white bread, not whole wheat.

And a cup of hot, steaming coffee--black, no sugar.

Thank you.  I'll wait.

   Cool

Oklahoma Howdy to Symphony,

What we have for you is armadillo on the half-shell. We milked it before we shot it, so you can guess what you will have to drink. You will have to clean your plate.   Grin

In Christ,
Tom
56727  Theology / General Theology / Re:The History of Scripture on: September 15, 2003, 08:41:08 PM
No a denomination counts as ONE. People believe all sorts of things. But there is only one truth.
LOL. Maybe you should have engaged your brain before posting.

Ebia,

This type of post is uncalled for. You might have understood his post if you had read it. The statement is really very simple. A denomination represents one belief, and there are many denominations each with different beliefs, but there is only ONE TRUTH. The question becomes who has the ONE TRUTH, IF ANYONE?

I would say that many have bits and pieces of THE ONE TRUTH. Those who would claim to have the ONLY AND COMPLETE ONE TRUTH would be foolish. The COMPLETE ONE TRUTH rests only in Almighty God.

Oklahoma Howdy to Maryann & AussieBorn2001,

Welcome to Christians Unite. You will find many sweet Christians here, and a truly hope you enjoy the fellowship.

In Christ,
Tom
56729  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / The Heart on: September 14, 2003, 11:26:48 AM
Oklahoma Howdy to All,

I'm positive that God looks at the heart of the individual, not the name or denomination of the church that individual attends. God is the sole judge on this matter in what HE sees or what HE doesn't see.

I'm also positive that God isn't very impressed with all of the names and tags man has devised to label themselves with. God would probably consider many of these tags and labels to be the vanity and foolishness of mankind.

God wouldn't ask if these tags or labels meant that the individual has Jesus in the heart as their personal Lord and Saviour. Many of these tags and labels mean different things to different people, so they really have become a matter of confusion. In fact, every person may have a different definition of what the tags, labels, and descriptions mean. This confusion extends far beyond the denominational tag or label.

As an example, how many definitions and opinions might we get if someone asked "what is a Fundamentalist, Legalist, Dispensationalist, etc., etc., etc.?" We might get as many answers and variations if someone asked, "what does a Baptist, Church of Christ, Pentecostal, Catholic, Non-Denominational, etc., etc., etc., believe?" I think the end result is the same, God looks on the heart of the individual, not their label or tag. These labels or tags will not exist in heaven, and they will mean absolutely nothing.

In Christ,
Tom

Brother Roy,

Thanks. I think my thoughts about preserving ALMIGHTY GOD as the foundation and cornerstone of our society are far too shy and withdrawn.   Cheesy

However, some of my brothers and sisters in Christ are working on me and trying to draw me out of my shell on this subject. Maybe I'll stop being so shy on this subject one of these days.   Cheesy

In Christ,
Tom
