Re: Christian Testimonies - Share yours?

This one is a little unusual in this fast-moving information age. "I was born and raised in the Blue Mountains of NSW (Australia) where I frew up on the family farm. From about 6 years of age, I had a deep awareness of God and a desire to follow him. On our farm my grandparents had built a church an...

Re: Missionary said something interesting

... So the bottom line is you are loved like Billy Graham but not where God wants you or where you need to be. Join a Christian 12 step group and no matter what keep going. You can thank me in a couple of years. Billy Graham, "World's greatest evangelist", never saved anyone. He didn't understand o...

Weddings and Funerals

What bits of Four Weddings and a Funeral do you like most and least? For me it is the "stop all the clocks" speech an insulting wedding speech I like most. The bit where Charles realises he doesn't love "Duckface" is heart-renching. Do you have any unusual memorable real-life experiences from these ...

Re: Why did God take 4,000 years to bring in the New Covenant?

Isn't this kind of like asking an author, "why did it take you 25 chapters to get to the 26th chapter?" No, God isn't just filling a book, he is doing what needs to be done to get mankind to love him more than he loves himself. God showed he wanted to be a Father to us, he worked with one man and w...

What is your church's vision/program for this year?

Proverbs 29:18: Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Are you sticking to a formula?

Taking each day as it comes?

Waiting for a decision from senior people elsewhere?

Doing something different?

Other?

Re: Basic question: when did the disciples become born again?

. .. Jesus was addressing the 70 in Luike 10, not you. He was addressing believers in him. Most of the gospels are not addressed to me, or you, so you treat them as just a historical record, not Jesus teaching you anything? Ah, so when was the last time you raised someone from the dead, or cured th...

Mark knew Jesus victory over death and sin, the idea that he ended the cospel in fear and confusion is foolishness.
If you want to be informed better regarding the MSS etc, read this.

I'll look at your other assertions later.

Re: Basic question: when did the disciples become born again?

I believed in Christ for 31 years before I was truly a believer. How do you work that out? Like many, you probably only ever heard part of the message to be a "believer" in. It says of Cornelius (Acts 10:36-37) "The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (...
