Hello everyone!
 
I hope that you are enjoying life! Learn through the hard times and give thanks in the good times! If you are a child of God, then He is working in your life to make you more like Jesus, and for that I am thankful.
 
I would like to continue with the topic of Baptists who are leaving the old-time gospel. Recently my wife was in a seminar being led by a young pastors wife. During her talk she made a comment about the leadership of the church that she and her husband were planting. That was “you don’t have to believe to belong.” You don’t have to believe to belong to their leadership team? How far the church in slipping! What is happening to the church? The young leaders are going far astray! You can’t lead a ministry if you do not give a testimony of when you accepted Christ as Saviour in any church that I am pastor.
 
There is a word from God in these issues, you find them in Proverbs. “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.” (Proverbs 22:28), “Remove not the old landmark; enter not into the fields of the fatherless:” (Proverbs 23:10). The book of Proverbs is a book of wisdom, one who takes heed of the things written here will be successful in their Christian walk.
 
One of the excuses that some use is that we have found “more reliable” manuscripts. In these “more reliable” manuscripts they try to say that women preachers/pastor are okay now. They say that the King James Bible has Scriptures in it that need to be removed. So, the KJV has extra Scriptures? Hmmm I find that interesting for a couple of reasons. One is that that would mean that Gods people did not have an inerrant Scripture until just recently. So, God did not preserve His Word for all generations? If that were true, then God lied; “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” (Psalms 12:6-7 KJV).
 
So, is God right or are the liberal “theologians” right? That my friend is a no brainer for me, “…Let God be true and every man a liar…” (Romans 3:3-4 KJV). So, when someone comes along trying to change what God has said and the church has adhered to for a millennium or more, kick them to the curb.
 
There was no localized flood, Noah’s flood was a universal flood. It covered the whole earth! What a false assertion to say that it was a local one. Gods plan is for the husband to give account for his family, why? Because God put the man in charge, many worldly people take issue with me saying that. They say that it is sexist, I say that it is Biblical. (Ephesians 5:22-32 KJV). God has an order for the home, the devil wants to destroy the home and the best way to destroy the home is to destroy Gods order for it. If you destroy the home you destroy the church.
 
Also, if you destroy Gods order for the home, the door is open for women to be ordained and become pastors. Scripture tells us that the position of pastor has to be a male. It’s in the original languages it is masculine not feminine in the Greek. People who teach this false teaching are following the world and not Scripture (1 Timothy 3:1-9 KJV). The blessings come from following God and His Word.
