Isaiah.

John 9:41 (WEB)

"Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains."

Re: What To Do In The Matter Of Job Searching

Brandon, I gave you specific instructions to let everyone on the forum know that I gave you hell for your arrogance and hypocrisy and required that you apologize. I'm not even going to bother to psychoanalyze why you didn't listen to me. Whether it's rebellion or carelessness makes no difference to ...

Re: What To Do In The Matter Of Job Searching

Look Nicholas, you're overreacting, fearfully regretting that you took the job without knowing for sure if you should have worked there. What makes you think you won't regret quitting without knowing if you needed to? Stop trying to figure everything and just slow down for a minute. First of all, pl...

Re: New Podcast - An Unexpected Visit with Mormons

The JW's, the Mormons, and even the SDA's, I believe, share David's expressed doctrine. None of them can or are willing to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. They do with their lips because they know they "have to", but the real story is told by their doctrinal and semantical backflips. Essentially,...

Re: Harvest Haven Happenings

I understand. It's not so much that you're picking it up, but that you're concluding it must be there based on past conversations.

We don't hate Trevor and Ingrid. We do hate Mark and his family and his mother.

Does this help?

Can you explain where you see this hostility?

Re: Is the Earth Flat?

Carl, it's not Jesus' blood that covers you. It is the blood of Baalzebub, the lord of the flies, that you've defiled yourself with. The Blood of Christ brings life, not the stink of death that we smell on you. Yes, Satan is a mocker and you with him. What of it? Except that you're twice the child o...

Re: Is the Earth Flat?

Carl, you're an idiot! Everything you say demonstrates your damned stupidity. But then I forgot about that proof text in Carl 1:23, "Where two men are gathered in my name, they are likely homosexuals." Homosexuals! Talk about a demonic accusation. Let me guess, Aaron and Moses were gay too? And then...

Re: New Teaching - Three Days and Three Nights

The "Last Supper" that Jesus ate with His disciples was on Tuesday night. The disciples either knew that Jesus wanted to eat with them early, as many rabbis in that day were accustomed to doing with their disciples, or they began thinking about preparations for the meal to following evening and Jesu...

Re: The System

I would say there's a lot more "knowingly" than you've wanted to realize. But, yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. I believe if you were to look back at the recording of the bible reading where this all started, you will hear Victor relating this exact principle to you. He explained how p...

Re: The System

Kelechi, I believe there is still something that needs to hit home here. You say, "It's silly to be angry that someone hates me for being black (if that is the case) when it's my lot". I agree. Not just silly, but wicked. Obviously, there are still folks out there that will hate you becaus...

Re: The System

Good morning, Kelechi. "I've simply not been given the faith to receive anything you guys are saying because it doesn't sound right." When the Lord gives somebody to receive something, it often doesn't "sound right" (eg. Abraham required to offer his son). Also, stop blaming your...

Re: The System

The truth is, Kelechi, you're only making black people look worse by demonstrating the validity of the stereotype. You say, "Dennison, I don't disagree that I'm not right with the Lord... which is clear by my not having His Spirit" There are many examples in the Scriptures of people being ...

Re: The System

Kelechi, I'd like to respond to your thoughts including the ones about me hating Mark Benson. The Lord was dealing with my heart in that whole mess. Mark was a wicked man. He was a lazy, lying, thieving, murdering devil. I had many confrontations with him over the course of the six months that I was...

I'm not sure what you're saying here, Kelechi. It seems sarcastic, but I'm not certain. I don't believe that anybody is saying that "black people are the most wicked and disgusting of all men." It's not a matter of categorizing or labeling. However, the part where they deserve everything t...

Re: The Sabbath - How are you keeping it?

On Friday night, I try to finish my work early and get home for dinner. After dinner I take care of my goats and help get the kids in bed. Soon after, Jeannie and I meet with Paul, Sara, Victor, and Marilyn on the phone and read the scriptures/discuss the spiritual matters at hand. When the phone ca...
