Just wanted to post a thank you for your not sitting back and allowing this Jesuit troll to post his roman ecumenical tripe and hatred of Gods people unchallenged. I still hope the moderators at SA will have enough of him and he is banned

Welcome aboard DSPP, looking forward to seeing your posts again. Yes indeed, what a great and gracious God we serve. Blessings to you and yours.

He encouraged me, under God, so much in my early ministry and, now 75, I give thanks to the Lord for him and his labours over the years. Lesser men will denigrate his memory which tells me more about them than dear Ian Paisley.
Thank you for sharing with us your fond memories concerning Mr. Paisley.
Women preachers, sodomite teachers, satanic rock music, 100,000 attendee's weekly at their 'campuses'..... Doesn't sound like the gospel meetings I read of in the book of Acts. "And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." Acts 2:42
Dolores, Charles Spurgeon told of a German Christian woman who was accustomed to mark her Bible whenever she met with a passage which was specially precious to her; but towards the end of her life she ceased fom the habit, when asked why, she replied "I find it unnecessary; for the whole of Scripture has now become most precious to me." To some of us our Bibles are marked from beginning to end. It is all precious, and altogether precious.

Jim Lincoln, well, that is a possibility that they will bring their own religious beliefs with them but no one will be reading anything out loud, just bringing their Bible or whatever. When they go to college, they will be facing this same situation with professors teaching classes of Evolution.You disagree, that's fine. You have a right to your opinion. Have a blessed day. I have always read from the King James Version, I feel a little uncomfortable with some but I do read read the New King James Version sometimes. I am very leery of the newer translations out now.
Hi Dolores, My KJV post was directed at Jim. Far be it from me to hold anyone to the KJV, it is my personal preference, but I respect the liberty of others to use whatever one they choose. Sometimes for clarification on verses I use the Amplified Bible.
John, Since I read your post last week where you mentioned about going to the beach for a baptism and gospel meeting, I have been wanting to tell you about J. C. Ryle tracts. My husband had major surgery a few years ago and we took Ryles tracts with us to the hospital. We gave the gospel and the tract 'Born Again' to one of his nurses, she was a lapsed RC. She became emotional and left the room reading the tract. We have prayed for her over the years and often wonder if we will see her again at our Fathers house.
"Is not Jesus Christ in the midst of the congregation, gathering up all notes which come from sincere lips, to put them into the golden censer, and to make them rise as precious incense before the throne of the infinite Majesty? So that He is the great singer, rather than we. He is the chief player on our stringed instruments, the great Master of true music. The worship of earth comes up to God through Him, and He, He is the accepted channel of all the praise of all the redeemed universe." Charles Spurgeon.

I read the Bible everyday on my nook along with Matthew Henry's commentary along with devotionals by Charles Spurgeon, A.W. Tozer. Daily Bread, Streams in the Desert. Takes about an hour including prayer time. Then read the articles on SermonAudio. I agree, that whatever the kids feel comfortable reading, that's what they should feel free to bring. I take my Bible to Church and read from that during the sermon. Just saying, you may see it differently and that's fine also.
Good morning Dolores, have you ever read 'Daily Remembrancer' by James Smith? It is similar to C.H Spurgeons 'Morning and Evening'. Mr. Smith was a predecessor of Mr. Spurgeon at New Park Street Chapel in London. I have been blessed and encouraged by it greatly.
s c wrote: Again,no surprises.Truth, in general, runs contrary to the rc church. Thank you, Dorcas,for the additional info regarding the first 11 chapters of the Bible. I know that many catholics in the course of conversation do not place much value on the Bible. A common response from them, when quoting a passage, is "that's just written by man." Dorcas, again, it is always encouraging and a blessing to hear from one who has come out of that mess.You have a valuable testimony! We pray for those dear ones still ensnared in that cult.
Thank you so much s c for your encouragement . My husband and myself are in such awe that the LORD had such mercy on two worms as us. We pray always for those dear souls still held captive by the enemy. Our prayer before our Fathers throne is always that He would open their eyes, and turn them fom darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto GOD............ Popery is a satanic religion!
This is just another sad example of an individual who may have heard the call to salvation but not to the ministry. The church is rife with uncalled 'pastors.' "And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God..... Hebrews 5:4 "My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation". James 3:1.
