Devotees nailed to crosses on Good Friday in Philippines
Several Roman Catholic devotees were nailed to wooden crosses in a gory Good Friday ritual in the Philippines, and others flogged themselves or took part in religious plays to reenact Jesus Christ’s suffering.

Four men and a woman, some wearing crowns of twigs, were escorted by villagers dressed as Roman centurions and nailed to crosses on a dusty hill in San Pedro Cutud village. Similar reenactments played out in nearby farming towns in the northern Philippines.

Thousands, including many tourists, watch the annual spectacle. The Catholic Church frowns upon it, instead calling on the faithful to mark Lent with prayers and acts of charity. ...

Good morning sister lb,

Thanks for the link to what looks like a very edifying message on the NB.Will be reading it later on today.
Also concur with your comments on Matthew 5:44....”Lord increase our Faith”.

Have a blessed day.

Hello Tim,

I was studying Matt. 5:44 earlier and was made aware of it's truth and meaning. We should speak well of others, even if they speak evil of us and wrongly accuse or label us as this or that. Commentaries by both Albert Barnes and John Gill are really good on that verse, along with taking a peek into the definitions from the interlinear.
God's word has a way of showing me my sins, it is both humbling and encouraging when He does. I am grateful to Him.

Thank you for your response, I appreciate your input. Yes, Proverbs 23:9 is another text that bears pondering. It is often more wise to hold our tongues, or in this case, our fingers

Ladybug, I realize you weren’t addressing me, but I agree that adherence to Matthew 5:44 is a wise choice. When it comes to dealing with a certain gentleman who has delusions of infallibility, Proverbs 23:9 is another good scripture to bear in mind.

Thank you sister MS, and bless you. I pray to put into practice Matthew 5:44. May the Lord work it in my heart to do so.
I read an excellent sermon by H.M. Curry on the new birth, in it he stated this, "The knowledge of sin is one of the brightest evidences that you will ever have that you have passed from death unto life.
Permanent, incorrigible, inherent sinfulness has always been acknowledged by holy men. David said, “I am a worm, and no man.” Psa.22:6. Isaiah confessed that he was a man of unclean lips, and Paul exclaimed, “O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” Rom.7:24. from https://www.mountzionpbc.org/Old%20School%20Baptist/Old%20School%20Baptist%20Writings%20-%20H.M.%20Curry-MZ.pdf

That is the truest evidence of being born again...seeing how sinful you are, and acknowledging your sins! Curry's writing on the new birth was MOST excellent.

One of the shallowest and most childish tactics in existence is to attempt to divert attention from one’s own misbehavior by pointing out the misbehavior of another. It has been around since the fall of man, when Adam blamed both God and Eve but never took one iota of responsibility for his own actions.

Thanks Christopher. I need that sort of information, never having been to America. Maybe you export the weird ones over here to pioneer churches. A lady friend of mine went and joined a Baptist church in Exeter, England, which was run by an American IFB pastor and his wife. It was her that told me it was dreadful. The men separated from the sisters and would not engage in spiritual convo with them, keeping them in the kitchen; they were legalistic, strange in dress; and worst of all, they mocked The Doctrines of Free and Sovereign Grace, which she had embraced, having been taught by myself. She felt compelled to leave after a while.

John, it was very interesting that you pointed me to that, because it just so happens that I watched that particular segment when it originally aired. I don't watch Oprah, so I must have been channel surfing or something. Anyway, it was just as disturbing now as it was back then. Just as disturbing was the fact that the kid had no idea what he was even screaming out. He couldn't put what it all meant into his own words, was totally confused, and even his own father seemed stumped. Both of them seemed more concerned about explaining why they feel the need to scream while they preach, and kept deflecting to this inatead of answering to whether or not the kids even understand what they're "preaching"

So, what do I make of it? Disturbing, and it makes Christians, as a whole, look like foolish lunatics.

Maybe these types are concentrated in particular areas of this country(?), and they can definitely be found here and there in every town/state, whether it's behind a pulpit, or on a street corner, but I'd say they're less common in numbers than you might be thinking, but yes, they're out there, for sure. Again though, they're hardly the norm, and their style is not the American standard. I've never, personally, encountered anyone like you described in any church I've been to.

Good morning Sister B, I had a look anyway and was mightily blessed by what I read. I will further investigate the subject, never having come across it before.

Just Thinking, I agree with what you say, and you may also find this article interesting and a blessing.

https://www.jewishvoice.org/read/blog/how-celebrate-passover-messianic-jew

One thing is for sure, whenever gospel preachers wish to illustrate the gospel message to sinners today, they will often use the Passover and the shedding of blood as an example of what sin demands, namely death.

Christopher, what do you make of this?

Now JT, let me say that I do not believe the way we do The Lord's Table today is anything at all like what Jesus had in mind when he said, "This do in remembrance of me." And I do not believe that the early disciples would recognise a lot of what we do in the name of Jesus. We gladly censure Catholicism, yet neglect to observe our own faults.
I agree, it was a communal meal, with real bread and real wine. Not sure why that should entail annual remembrance of a particular day that occurred prior to fulfillment of the law by the Lord. All of Jesus' days prior to the cross, though written in the new testament, were under the old covenant, were they not? And his sacrifice brought to an end the shedding of sheep's blood, no?

Good morning John,
I'm assuming this has been answered before at some point, but what's your definition of a "yee-haw" preacher/preaching? The vision I get is someone behind a pulpit who gets excitable over what they're preaching on, and/or, verbally emotional to hit important points home, etc.(?)
What do you see as hee-haw preaching, and do you consider them to be fake, phoney, and insincere? Honest question, because I have no idea what your definition of one is, so just wondering.
Good morning Christopher, and thank you for your question. I anticipated it from someone so this morning have been looking online for examples.

Yee Ha preaching is an American phenomenom which never reminds people of Jesus Christ. You yourself bro have commented on certain open air preachers who shout and slobber and show hatred towards passers-by.

A red hot preaching conference I watched this morning (IFB) talked about "love your neighbour as yourself" and then went on to say loudly that he hates certain types of sinners. All the message he was whipping up the crowd, shouting for effect. Deceivers.

John, what a messianic jew does, or does not, does not alter a iota of the expressed eternal design, which by the way, includes *no change* in the mind of God about the Passover into a remembrance later.

As you point out, the NT act of remembrance, as the actual Passover was, is not a 'service' but a collective devotional acknowledging redemption, visualised in this case not with a physical lamb, but with the physical elements of bread and the cup.
That this collective act might be held in the context of a meal can be possibly accepted.

However, the last looks back, while the former looked forward.
The first sustains the second, as without the Passover the Lord's table is meaningless. The second confirms the fulfilment pointed to by the first, and both are one.

In remembering Christ by the second we affirm the completion and fulfilment of the eternal purpose in ONE

Do you have a biblical warrant for calling men of God you have never met or heard “Yee Ha” preachers? No, of course not. Blind guide.
Doc, early one morning this week, I set off abroad and found myself walking into a Christian bookshop. Amazed, I saw it was an IFB bookshop, and that is rare in the UK. Glancing through the titles, these four titles captured my attention:

"100 Different Ways To Mock Calvinists" by Y. H. Haughton

"The Pastorate: How To Lord It Over God's Little Flock" by Y. H. Haughton

"Techniques In Preaching: How To Fool People Into Thinking You Are Filled With The Holy Spirit" by Y. H. Haughton

"On Doctrine: How To Promote Arminianism" by Y. H. Haughton

I came over all cold and dizzy, so I swiftly left the shop and started off home when.......

.......I woke up, and behold, it was all a dream.

What a relief.

Now I really don't like boxing, but a dear friend invited me over to watch a prize fight. The two boxers were in the ring, when the MC grabbed a mike and said, "Introdoooooocing the heavyweight champeeeeeeneship of the worrrrrrrrrrrlllllllllld..."

And I thought, "That's it! That's where the Yee Ha's get their style from."

It is a useful exercise, when evaluating the current state of ecclesia, to pick a church, be an observer, and when reading through the New Testament compare it with what is evident in the building. If the two do not match up, either church leaders are at fault, or the Bible is at fault. I will always say the former.

When I do this exercise for myself, I find plenty of things to change in myself; and this be not an easy thing. But by God's grace I am what I am, and I will be what I will be. Unlike the churches in general which always, without fail, say, "We are okay, our structure is sound, our doctrine is good, our worship is fine etc. I find myself saying of myself, "John, there is much work to do in your life; there is this to sort out, that aspect needs refining, this doctrine needs looking at, this attitude requires a change etc."

It is all to do with living in the real world, rather than putting on the Christian mask.

Sister B, thank you for your response. I will see if I can find out today what Messianic Jews do as regards the passover and Lord's Supper. By Messianic Jews, I am talking about truly converted Jews.

There seems to be many different names for the 'service' of remembrance. Firstly, I no longer see it as a 'service'. It is a simple meal, plain and ordinary, when disciples get together to remember something.

The OT feast day, passover, was celebrated over several thousand years. And its purpose was to remember the salvation of the firstborn by the blood of the lamb. It was at passover that Jesus changed the purpose, to remember the salvation of us, his people, by the blood of The Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world. Lord's Table, Lord's Supper, Eucharist, Holy Communion, Breaking of Bread, Passover. All biblically correct.

Dr Tim.....later.

Sister ladybug,
Ignoring is the best way to handle self-righteous people.Your advice to not engage such a one is wise, and is one that I have by God’ Grace tried to put into practice albeit I fall into the flesh more often than I should.
Take heart dear sister and lets “keep ourselves in the love of God,looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life”:
Blessings to you.

1. John, in seeing the Passover as an ongoing yearly remembrance you are holding to an earthy type that speaks of an eternal reality, which is that our Passover, Christ, was slayed and offered *from the foundation of the world*, not yearly.
The eternal accomplishment is what the Lord's table exemplifies.

2. It is a fact that druid practice focused the beginning of spring with festivities and rituals round the fertility 'egg' , while new agers extend this to the fertility of rabbits and chicks comercialising the season with happy Easter card wishes . The imposed relationship of such whith Christ's crucifixion and resurrection is blatant but not biblical, neither justifiable.
