Christopher, I wonder how many are experiencing this problem I am having and can't get past the validation. After getting the green checkmark that I'm not a robot I still can't post my comment. It says validation incorrect or cookies not enabled. See my post on Wooly Mammoth. I have post from my phone

To SA, I cannot currently post on this site from my computer. I tried five different browsers and even made sure will accept all cookies. I have tried two different operating systems and two different computers. I still get the message about incorrect number or cookies not enabled. I did not have this issue when your first change to the new verification system. I have seen at least three times that there was no server access your site. Would appreciate any help, thanks.

sc, a couple of observations if I may.

1. While I agree they adopted the term "gay" to lighten the concept of sodomy at this point everyone associates it with sodomy. If you told somebody that you were "gay,", no one would assume it meant you were happy they would all believe you were calling yourself a homosexual.

2. The Scripture has many applications even if it is not the main interpretation of the passage. You would not say a Christian cannot claim the sufficiency of the grace of God in life's difficulties because they are not the apostle Paul to whom that was said about a specific ailment (2 Cor. 12:9). You wouldn't say God won't supply the believers needs because they are not part of the church at Philippi which met Paul's temporal needs in the first century. (Phil. 4:19)

To be clear, are you saying that where two or three believers (or more)are gathered together that Christ will not be in their midst if they are not involved in church discipline?

I have a lady friend at River of Life Church(where I attend on Sunday mornings) stated her Catholic father who passed away in early December accepted Jesus as his Savior before he passed away.
Did a priest come to his bedside and deliver Viaticum? Was it a Catholic priest that conducted his funeral? Again actions speak way louder than words.

sc, you should reconsider who has the inaccurate assumptions and presumptions. You are ignoring the context and comparison that was made.

Our Lord made the John the Baptist comparison the key, if it had no significance He wouldn't have stated it.

John came neither eating or drinking.

Did John not eat or drink? Obviously he did both. He ate an usual fat free diet and did not drink wine or strong drink but he drank something or he would not have lived. His diet and drink meant he could not have been gluttonous or drunk. So, they said he had a devil.

Our Lord stated in contrast to John He came both eating and drinking. He stated that they accused Him of extremes in both. Gluttony for eating and being an alcoholic for drinking. The accusation of gluttony was meaningless on John but they used it falsely on our Lord because it was a possibility if He abused it.

John drank no wine or strong drink, so drunkenness accusation was meaningless on him, but they used it falsely on our Lord because it was a possibility if He abused it.

It's the same crowd, if they didn't accuse John because of his habits, they also would have not accused the Lord if His habits were the same as John. Because they were different the contrast is noted.

Can anyone actually justify modern day use of alcohol merely for pleasure? If they can,then they must also condone other intoxicants.
Since pleasure is caused by chemical reactions in the brain, you have to look at what causes pleasure.(intoxicants if you wish)

For some it is reading a book, eating a good meal, intimacy with the one they love, knitting a sweater, making a quilt, fixing a broken object, working on their car, going camping, a nice cozy place next to a fire, playing a game, talking on the phone to a good friend, solving a crossword puzzle, cooking, doing things for their children, spending time in prayer and meditation, researching things on the internet, going out for a walk, working out at the local gym, building a model ship, enjoying a train set, a hot shower, studying history, etc. etc.

Obviously the list could go on and yes it could include some very sinful activities. But the Scripture states a merry heart is like medicine. It does not indicate what is used to bring about the mirth.

Ultimate joy and happiness is found in our relationship with God (Psalm 16:11) Yet God gives all things richly to enjoy. (I Tim 6:17)

Doing things for pleasure is not sinful as long as whatever is done is for His glory

1... why do church members who have Facebook accounts state under Religious Views that they are Baptist?

2.If I have stated that I do not practice the RCC way of salvation then that is what I mean. If I have stated that I no longer put my faith in the RCC for salvation but put my faith entirely in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation then that is what I mean.

3.I told that lady friend I have at River of Life Church that I attend the local Catholic parish on late Saturday afternoons in addition to attending River of Life Church on Sunday mornings and she has no problem with that.

1. Maybe the members need to catch up with the church.

2. Do you faithfully attend a Catholic church? Do you faithfully partake in the Mass? Would your Priest say the same thing I am saying?

3. Does Pastor Steve know you still PRACTICE the RCC sacramental way of salvation? Is Pastor Steve aware you ardently support the false RCC? Does Pastor Steve know you refuse to renounce Catholicism and its false teachings? Is Pastor Steve aware you plan on leaving the "Baptist" church and be only part of the RCC if you move out out of state? Does that lady friend decide who is a proper candidate for believer's baptism?

I apologize that my response to you was not considered to be in a timely manner. Both your posts in that thread and this request occurred while I was at work. Your requested response is now there.

Unprofitable Servant, You are incorrect
According to the website you provided, the church's name is River of Life Church (no Baptist in the name) in fact they acknowledge they dropped the Baptist name 14 years ago in 2003.
.
John, your actions speak so much louder than your words. I would find in interesting if you told the no longer Baptist church, that you have not stopped practicing the RCC sacrament way of salvation, that you regularly defend the apostate RCC, that you plan to rear any offspring you may have as Catholics and have them continue to practice, like you, the RCC sacrament way of salvation, if they would still consider you a candidate for believer's baptism?

The only way you can demonstration that you have experienced the grace of God that brings salvation that teaches us to deny ungodliness would be that you severe your ties completely with the ungodly RCC. That is the only proof to show you no longer put any faith in the RCC sacramental system as a means to get you to heaven.

Mt 11:18 &19
It is easy to miss the hyperbolic language of the passage. Taken literally one misses the 'sarcasm' having to assume that John never ate or that he died of dehydration. See, "John came neither eating nor drinking"
_
It is not hyperbolic sister. There is no sarcasm about John not eating or drinking. As stated previously John did not have a regular diet (he ate locust and wild honey) and according to Luke 1 he did not drink wine nor strong drink. When Jesus said John came neither eating (He meant a regular diet of meat and vegetables) or drinking (He meant wine or strong drink) thus the accusation that our Lord over indulged in both (a glutton and an alcoholic) Moderation comes from Scripture, the command is "be not drunk, wherein is excess" not don't drink wine and the admonition is "not given to much wine", it is not derived from some tradition.

sc, please be kind enough to show me where my interpretation is wrong on either passage so that my interpretation won't be just "convenient". Please note you continue to confuse drinking wine with being drunk with wine, they are not one in the same.

Hey Anne, first let me say I would be pleased if by the grace of God I was as gracious as you are. Thanks for the great example.

As to the communion question, I would say if we really wanted to follow the Lord's example it would require we all drank from the same cup. But I have no control of how or when my church administers communion. My previous pastor had what I thought was a good point. He said there are some saved from alcohol, like John UK, where God took away the desire. There are some who have to mortify what would be a besetting sin on a daily basis. He didn't want to be a stumbling block to those who struggle by giving them even the small amount of wine you would get in a communion cup. An issue you addressed by saying both should be served.

BMac actually said several of the reasons for which I choose abstinence in a long ago discussion. I realize that there are cultural differences even on this issue. I certainly don't feel the liberty to violate Romans 14 and impose my beliefs on matters of conscience on other brothers and sisters who are more than likely far more spiritual than I.

God blessings to you sister, thanks for posting

..not to look upon the wine when it is red is speaking of fermented
Wine is a mocker. Period. And strong drink is raging. Period.
You are purposely changing the issue. Drinking in moderation is not the same as becoming drunken.

I demonstrated in 2/12/17 10:02 PM post, and Anne also pointed out, the passage in Proverbs 23 is speaking against drunkenness (can't be missed in the context, so obviously we acknowledged it was fermented) not just the consumption of wine.

I showed in 2/11/17 9:52 PM post that Proverbs 20:1 is also speaking against becoming drunk with wine, not just the consumption of it.

You ignored the passage you were given out of Deuteronomy 14:24-26

You have yet to show that moderation is disallowed in Scripture because you keep changing the subject to drunkenness. You cannot find one post defending drunkenness. You assume that the consumption of wine is only for the purpose of getting inebriated. As I have said countless times, when you start with the wrong premise you reach wrong conclusions.

I support abstinence not obtrusion.

Whether therefore you eat or drink do all to the glory of God

Let your moderation be known to all men The Lord is at hand.

Yesterday during worship at that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings I filled out the communications card and stated I wished to be Baptized at that Baptist Church. I am waiting to be contacted to start the process of being Baptized at that Baptist Church.
Two things

1. It is a former Baptist church, they took the word out of their name and removed believer's baptism from their doctrinal statement.

2. Are you going to tell them that you are a member of a RCC church and faithfully partake in mass, are going let them know that if you move you will strictly practice the RCC false religion and plan to raise any offspring as Catholics? Will you let them know you still put your faith in the RCC way of salvation (proved by the fact that you have not given it up) and this is just you adding another prize in your "I'm going to heaven" thinking that you hope will give you the brownie points you need to enter there. You seem to have forgot that narrow is the way and strait is gate. If you are not forthright with the church, then you will be a deceiver.

“U S,if the wine was not typically diluted then,it wouldn't have been necessary to include a verse stating to not look upon the wine when it is red...obviously,the passage is in reference to fermented drink which was undiluted. No one wants to concede this.”
Thanks TMC, please I said that the passage was speaking about being drunk, so I did recognize it was a reference to fermented drink. God bless.

You know if he was not a strict constructionist and also conservative in his thinking, he would be a slam dunk with the liberals and nobody would be talking about considering the nuclear option. Some Senators in whose states Trump won by a good margin are up for re-election next year and they don't want to doom their chances, so they have stated they would vote for the nominee.

I would avoid Texan's website as it is the clear teaching of the New Testament that Paul established churches (37 references to them) on his missionary journeys and spoke of the local church as the pillar and ground of the truth.

1. Matthew 11:18 is a poor verse to try to prove that Christ drank alcohol.

2. ... not look upon the wine when it is red...

3.Further...no one who does drink on here will admit that alcohol is an intoxicant.
.

sc, I am somewhat hesitant to respond as I am not trying to encourage drinking, best to abstain.

1. please regard the context, Son of man came eating and drinking, and they accuse, behold a gluttonous man, how, by overeating, and an alcoholic, how by over drinking, would not be a possibility if it was just grape juice. Remember context is important. Our Lord referenced John the Baptist. We know he ate a fat free diet of locust and wild honey (Matthew 3:4) and did not drink wine or strong drink. (Luke 1:15) Bringing him up as a contrast would be meaningless to what our Lord was saying if there was not one.

2. again obviously the passage (Proverbs 23:31-35)is referring to getting drunk, looking upon wine does not make one intoxicated. As previously noted all are against drunkenness. Also, if you dilute red wine, it is still red in color.

3. If that were true why the discussion on moderation?

Kings and leaders deals with being drunk not drinking and priest were only restricted while executing priest office.

The wine which gives us joy is definitely not the alcoholic one but the one which Christ provided.
The carnal will defend the carnal unless it's not their preferred intoxicant.
This is why those who drink alcohol think that they can still correct their children for doing drugs.
just wondering to whom you are addressing? There is not a post where someone said they drink wine to get joy or they use wine as their "preferred intoxicant."

Speaking of exceptions, are you aware that dilution of wine in N.T. times according to historians was the exception, that the alcohol content was between 5-20%. Even Scripture proves that by noting one could become drunk on new wine and also the Corinthian's wine was that which could intoxicate. (which btw Paul didn't say abstain from but advised to drink at home)

I am not trying to make a case for drinking wine as I believe in abstinence. You might want to reconsider your reasoning for calling people carnal for not holding your view when your points don't even address what others have said. You are setting your own strawman up and then knocking it down.
