Quite so, GS. There is something very special about the KJV and the way it honours the Lord.
I'm still getting used to the GSMontana moniker. Hope you are enjoying life there, and have a fellowship to attend. God bless.

Thank you Dolores. It is always good to have fellowship with believers. To my mind, there is only one criteria, and that is the new birth, evidenced by love, which you have in abundance.
Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. (1 John 5:1 KJV)
It is when we are born again, we love God who has begotten us, and we love all others who are begotten of him. I greatly appreciate your fellowship in Christ and that you are not so isolated that you cannot have fellowship with a TULIP brother.
I loved what you said about being wooed to Christ. This is none other than the immense love of God, which is powerful and gentle at the same time.
Yes, Jesus loves me Yes, Jesus loves me Yes, Jesus loves me The Bible tells me so

My wife and I had a brief gathering with part of our family today but all was not happiness. Our youngest daughter, 31, married about 18 months ago, just miscarried her first pregnancy about 11 weeks in and is having a difficult time of it. Prayers for my daughter from anyone who has a heart to would be appreciated. Her name is Beth.
Sad news, bro Lurker. Pleased to honor your request.
Biblically speaking, that label is an impossibility and I consider it an oxymoron. Roman Catholocism is fully anti-biblical, anti-God, and is a diabolical religious machine based fully upon observing sacraments, attending mass, good works, being a part of the church, never questioning ecclesiastical authority, and believing rhat Mary is necessary part of the salvation "process". You're either with them or you're against them, John. There's no middle, comfortable ground.
Oh boy, sure will, Lurker. I'm assuming we're talking severe depression? Thanks for providing a first name. I'll never know the disappointment and feelings of loss not only as a parent, but a grandparent, etc. Sorry to hear that.
Hi Dolores, that's sounds like it was quite the spread! This age of technology has its cons, for sure, but it has also made the world so much smaller and far less mysterious. I think it's amazing that we're able to face time with anyone at the push of a button, like you did with your grandson. Gone are the days of writing letters and waiting for a response or waiting for pictures, etc. Nice that you were able to have him right there with you, even if only for a few moments. Please keep us updated on your grandson heading out.

My drive times and down times have been turned into class time for learning. I've been sharing your site to many friends here. When I visited the US last summer, I used SA to find good churches ... You are a blessing to me ... In Christ and for His Glory.
Brother, it was a blessing to read your tribute of appreciation here, which can echo the experience of many.
May this gracious providence granted to a world-wide English speaking audience (mainly), be understood as a God-given privilege, and may those in charge be committed in prayer to God's kind leading and preservation.
Great Sermon! I have the booklet this sermon was re-printed in. One of my first Christian books and still a favorite. This sermon opened up the Trinity to me in ways no other reading did providing the foundation for the rest of my spiritual growth. Think of all the godly men God has raised up all these years to help His people know about Him and glorify Him. God is Sovereign!
A sermon to explain our current immorality Many of us are struggling to understand today's moral crisis and the rapidness of our falling away. I thought perhaps Romans 3 was the best description/answer, but Isaiah 3 also provides clarity. John Owen also experienced this horror in his day and preached upon it.
True Holy Bible Saints: I Know The "Jesuits" Go BERSERK When I Post As A "TrueHolyBibleChristianCatholic"; In Fact, It's A Sad Shame That Even SOME True Holy Bible Only "Protestants" & 'Independents' ALSO Go BERSERK &-Or Get "Rubbed The Wrong Way": Because Even THEY'VE Been DUPED By The VATICAN "JESUITS" Into Believing THE SATANIC LIES That "The Only True Catholics Are Roman-'Catholics' " & "Catholic" Means "Vatican" !
But WE True "SOLA ESCRITURA" HOLY-BIBLE-ONLY Independents, "Protestants" &-Or *CATHOLICS* Know BETTER !
IN FACT, WE TRUE HOLY BIBLE ONLY CHRISTIAN CATHOLICS KNOW BY THE TESTIMONY OF FORMER HIGHRANKING "JESUIT"--ALBERTO RIVERA--THAT THE SATANIC~VATICAN; THAT IS, THE HARLOT-/-WHORE "CHURCH" OF REVELATION 17&18: CREATED THE FALSE-RELIGION OF "ISLAM" BACK IN THE 400s A.D.:
"What I'm Going To Tell You Is What I Learned In Secret Briefings In The Vatican When I Was A Jesuit Priest, Under Oath And Induction.
A Jesuit Cardinal Named AUGUSTINE BEA Showed Us How Desperately THE (HIERARCHIAL) ROMAN CATHOLICS Wanted JERUSALEM At The End Of The Third Century.
Because Of It's Religious History And Strategic Location, THE HOLY CITY (JERUSALEM) Was Considered...Priceless..."-ALBERTO RIVERA
