From the Texas Tribune: "At First Baptist, Pence is participating in an event billed as "Celebrate Freedom Sunday." The church says it will feature an "annual fireworks celebration, patriotic music and a special message" from Pence. The church has also said Pence will be joined by Abbott and U.S. Housing Secretary Ben Carson."
Just curious, anyone see anything wrong with this picture? It reminds me of searching for a hidden picture within a picture. Look closer
You'll find it, if you know what your looking for.

Up in the night watches, I listened to a teaching given in conjunction with I book I am reading,'Godly Prayer And Its Answers' by J.B. of Wamphray.
I believe the church which is one, holy, catholic (meaning universal) Church is neither Roman, nor papist. That visible church is being corrected by God's holy, wise, and powerful, preserving and governing of all his creatures and all their actions. Concerning his children however, he is correcting them in Fatherly love for their former negligence of 1st table duties due Him.
Listening to https://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=1126191416242357 and being corrected and instructed, several posters here that the LORD in his mercy has used for my good in isolation (which for me began long before Covid) You, James T, and Carl..NC came to mind. It is my prayer for you all to God, that at this time & beginning with yourselves in your households, that what is explained in this study & proved in Scripture would be for your blessing, the neglect of which will bring the rod. God knows you, I cannot. I barely know my own heart.

Thank you for that, isn't it amazing that the more you learn the more you realize all there is to learn and what you don't know.
What I meant by quoting Psalm 14:1 was that we know our founding father's were not fools but we also know all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. it is a little more difficult in a time when many were rather fluent about fundamental Christian teaching, yet they were for granting a freedom to continue in the myriads of differences, contrary to Scripture. It would seem that would make it more difficult to define membership in the visible church, Yes? A member of the invisible church is known only to God and the man himself who, as Paul instructs; is to "work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.Â For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure."Â Php 2:12,13
I believe our founding fathers were fluent in Christian fundamentals but I understood most of them to be deists. Yet they were men in trying times and men are more sober then.
James Thomas wrote: He was simply a printer and not a translator. The printing he did, which was the first on American soil, was that of the KJV translation. Here are a few links for you to take a look at. https://www.greatsite.com/timeline- english-bible-history/index.html https://www.greatsite.com/ancient-rare-bible-leaves/aitken-1782-leaf.html
Thank you sir. I actually began there and confused what was said about the father with what was said of the daughter "As a curious side note: Robert Aitkenâ€™s daughter, Jane Aitken, went on to become the first woman in the history of the world to ever print a Bible. Jane published a translation into English done by the Secretary of the United States Congress, which was itself actually the first non-King James version English language Bible ever printed in America (or the Western Hemisphere for that matter)"
Sorry for the confusion. So what you are saying is that he reprinted the KJV. Did you look at the history recorded on the site I mentioned? That history was a little difficult to weed through in a timely manner. I was trying to beat the heat of the day with outside work.
James Thomas wrote: The only Bible ever authorized by the United States Congres was one printed by Robert Aitkens. He was commended by President George Washington for providing Americans with Bibles during the embargo of imported English goods due to the Revolutionary War. Hardly the act of a "Satanist".
Of these things I was unaware. I found this http://logosresourcepages.org/Versions/1st.htm
I am still unclear as to who translated the Aitkin's Bible for that is more important then who printed it. It was not a KJV. Do you know who translated it?
It would appear this establishes what our founding fathers were not. Psalm 14:1 However that is as far as it can go, since there is much more at stake in making other determinations based upon the veracity of the word of God as a whole.
Douglas Fir wrote: John, try looking up the City of Miami Beach website, checking the pictures of the city commissioners, and examining the one for district 6. I don't think the name is spelled incorrectly, nor the picture misplaced.
"A native Floridian, John was born in Tampa and raised in Sarasota. Johnâ€™s mother is the original â€śGirl named John.â€ť Her mother was a special education teacher who died unexpectedly when John was 14 years old. John's maternal grandfather, Dr. William Fitts, promised his World War II buddy and fellow Army medic to name his second child in his memory. John's parents chose to continue this legacy and named their second child, also a girl, the same way. John is proud of her name as result of this tradition and she and her husband continue the legacy."
Looking for information on Early Rain Covenant Church I came across the following speaking of a dialogue between the imprisoned and the imprisoning from China Partnership: "The officer said: 'Security is more important than anything'. I responded, 'The value of a soul is greater.' After completing the record the officer asked, 'What doctrines do you all teach?' I sat up straight and recited, Q. What is your only comfort in life and in death? A. That I am not my own, but belong body and soul, in life and in death - to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ." 1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1Co 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

The real church doesn't make such distinctions.It's almost as if it's a pride issue. How can one be proud over something for which they can take no "credit"?
it was the writer who called it an African-American church, maybe the complaint about that should go to the email provided.
One would also wonder if the choir pictured is the one that sings in the church that is mentioned.

I did not run into that issue when clicking on the link.
Bible Doctrine wrote: 4. ... but also the infants of one or both believing parents are to be baptized.b a. Mark 16:15-16; Acts 8:37-38. â€˘ b. Gen 17:7, 9 with Gal 3:9, 14 and Col 2:11-12 and Acts 2:38-39 and Rom 4:11-12; Mat 28:19; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 18:15; 1 Cor 7:14.
I read every Scripture proof you gave me very carefully and could not find infant baptism being taught in any of them.
The Biblical Method wrote: WCF 7/6. Under the gospel, when Christ the substancea was exhibited, the ordinances in which this covenant is dispensed are the preaching of the Word and the administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lordâ€™s Supper;b which, though fewer in number, and administered with more simplicity and less outward glory, yet in them it is held forth in more fulness, evidence, and spiritual efficacy,c to all nations, both Jews and Gentiles;d and is called the New Testament.e There are not, therefore, two covenants of grace differing in substance, but one and the same under various dispensations.f a. Col 2:17. â€˘ b. Mat 28:19-20; 1 Cor 11:23-25. â€˘ c. Jer 31:33-34; Heb 12:22-28. â€˘ d. Mat 28:19; Eph 2:15-19. â€˘ e. Luke 22:20. â€˘ f. Psa 32:1 with Rom 4:3; Acts 15:11; Rom 3:21-23, 30; 4:6, 16-17, 23-24; Gal 3:14, 16; Heb 13:8.
I don't understand what you are trying to convey.
There is only one Covenant of Grace. As I said before it is the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit that brings us into the Covenant of Grace not infant baptism.
