Between fox and wolf, I'd say. They're dangerous mainly to small domestic animals. We get a fair number of wild critters in our suburban neighborhood, including even wildcats. Birds also are prominent; once, a hawk (also common) killed a dove in our back porch. Who needs nature documentaries?
Best way to treat wild animals is with hostility; sentimentalists who feed them are foolish, for they lose their fear of man that way.
Thanks for the extra info Neil. The closest I've come to knowing what a coyote is, has been hearing them mentioned in one of those cowboy and Indian westerns I watched years ago.

Dr. Tim wrote:
Yes, John, there are many, many verses not only in the New Testament, but in the Old as well, dealing with salvation. Rather than being many different “doors,” they are really different porches that all lead to the one true Door, the Lord Jesus Christ. I think this shows the marvelous graciousness of our Heavenly Father. In case we read or hear one passage of scripture and don’t “get it,” He makes sure there are other passages that we do get.
Too true Dr Tim. It reminded me of the remarkable conversion of Charles Spurgeon, who, as a young man, inadvertently attended a Methodist chapel one snowy night, only to hear a lay preacher struggling with a short message on the text "Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am God and there is none else."

Can you imagine any Bible college training men up in evangelism telling them to look at someone in particular in the congregation and saying, "Young man, you look very sad!"

As one rightly said, "Looking to Christ is believing on Christ, is accepting Christ, is receiving him as Saviour, is repenting of sin, is submitting to his Lordship, is being taken up with the Lord Jesus Christ for life."

True, John. I’m afraid we have turned soul winning into little more than salesmanship. Let there be no conviction, no repentance, no seeing oneself as a wretched, undone sinner on whom the wrath of God abides. If we can just get them to say the “sinner’s prayer,” we have “won” them and can add their tick to our tally. Pfui. I’d rather see one man bawling his eyes out under genuine Holy Ghost conviction than to see a hundred mindlessly mouthing a 1-2-3, repeat-after-me “sinner’s prayer.”
Yes and amen. It's a fact of life that many folks will have been saved through uttering a God-wrought "sinner's prayer", but to formulate it is dangerous and often not helpful. It is the same with Revelation 3:20, usually taken out of context, yet the Lord graciously saves some through the preaching of it.

Whatever HE does is okay with me.

If we were to take all the NT commands concerning salvation, and list them all out, one after another, we would wonder what the gospel was all about. Indeed, some of these things have begun cults, demanding, for example, baptism in water for the remission of sins.

What is really needed, as you say, is a Holy Ghost conviction of sin.

Dr. Tim wrote:
John UK wrote, “No Prayer=No Salvation.” I think I would examine that a little more closely, John, as there are many scriptures that promise salvation without any mention of prayer and many biblical examples of people getting saved without praying. Faith is what connects us to the Savior; the praying is merely an expression of the faith that already exists in the heart, as the next verse of Romans 10 makes clear when it asks, “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?”
I quite agree, Doc. Prayer is some evidence of the new birth. If a man tells me he is born again and never prays to God, I discount his profession of faith.

But I am not into formulas for salvation anyway. It is God who saves, and we merely observe the effects of grace in someone's life.

Basically what I'm saying is that when a person is genuinely converted, these three things will always be there: repentance, faith, and prayer.

Now don't forget bro, when I say "prayer" I'm not talking about the stereotyped image people have of prayer, learnt when they attend a church. Prayer is the affections of the heart reaching out for God. It may be silent, but very spiritual.

Yes John. A coyote is a sort of wild dog looking something like a wolf, only much smaller, only about 45pounds in weight, and the markings are a bit different.
Thanks Nick, not something you'd want as a pet then.

Romans 10:8-13 KJV
(8)  But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
(9)  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
(10)  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
(11)  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
(12)  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
(13)  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

I think that just about sums it up. But let none ever forget that it is a work of God in the hearts of men, not something that they can conjure up themselves. Does a man believe that Jesus is the Christ? "Flesh and blood hath not revealed this unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven".

The words of Jesus still hold true, "Repent ye and believe the gospel". Mark 1:15

No Repentance = No Salvation
No Believing = No Salvation
No Prayer = No Salvation

Salvation doesn’t come from believing facts with the head, John. It comes from believing truth with the heart. Those who don’t see the difference probably haven’t done the latter.
Dr Tim, do you know where your heart is?

They won't be arresting me. I (having heard from the Lord) called for our fellowship to cease meeting together, in accordance with the guv's wishes, in order to help prevent deaths due to coronavirus, which is an horrible death.

At present in the UK, confirmed cases double every two to three days, and I believe that the social isolation instructions will be of great benefit in helping the nation get back to normal, and save many lives.

Of course I miss the fellowship, but Jesus is our Head, and we follow him. Soon it will be back to normal.

Greetings fellow saints and inheritors of the heavenly kingdom, by the will of God and his marvellous grace.

This week I had occasion to check on a man who turned out to be a co-founder of a new group of churches which call themselves "New IFB". I listened to a message of his on YouTube, and was rather shocked to hear him say that salvation is simply by believing, never by praying.

So the end result of that is that sinners are told certain facts (uncertain which ones) and then asked if they believe those facts or not. If the answer is yes, they are pronounced saved and can now enjoy their Christian life.

There is something wrong here, and it may be why there is so little repentance in the world today.

"Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13

This crying out to God is far removed from matter-of-fact believing of certain doctrines. You can believe something with no humility, no desire to change your lifestyle, no remorse, no shame, no feeling of guilt, no overwhelming need of forgiveness from Almighty God.

I wonder if this is limited to "New IFB" or whether it has been there all along? A false gospel, false assurance, pseudo-converts, deceived sinners.

Thank you brethren for your testimonies, they brought great joy to my heart, and glorified the Lord, the great Heart-Changer.

Dr Tim, you more than most will know the need of directing converts in the correct spiritual direction for deliverance and restoration to some semblance of normality. I know it is not always easy, and some will struggle, but hearkening to the Lord always produces good fruit. In most cases, as you yourself have proved, a true and good conversion, with a new birth and infilling with the Spirit, will itself, without any instruction of men, produce a most remarkable change in the immediate.

O’ How Beautiful the feet of those who bring the word to the lost are. May the Lord do the same for our own lost loved ones & others too amen!

Spurgeon; Unless the Holy Ghost blesses the Word, we who preach the gospel are of all men most miserable, for we have attempted a task that is impossible. We have entered on a sphere where nothing but the supernatural will ever avail. If the Holy Spirit doesn’t renew the hearts of our hearers, we can’t do it. If the Holy Ghost doesn’t regenerate them, we can’t. If He doesn’t send the truth home into their souls, we might as well speak into the ear of a corpse.

Amen NeedHim, dead in trespasses.

Conversion through regeneration is a beautiful thing.

Mike wrote:
"Nor ever shall be" applied to 70AD
would have to mean what the world has experienced since has never been as bad as what happened in 70 AD, and it will never again be that bad. Does not history and prophecy say otherwise?
It is a perfectly fair point, bro. But not without its problems.

Matthew 24:34 KJV
(34)  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

One problem is that you will have to say that Jesus here is referring not to "this generation", but to a time at least 2,000 years into the future. But the text says that "this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled". AD70 and the sacking of Jerusalem fits within the timescale of "this generation".

If your first principle of interpreting the Bible is to take the text at face value, take the plain meaning of the text, rather than spiritualising it, then you are going to have to take it into account when interpreting the other verse.

Of course, there is a tendency, whenever a verse contradicts my framework of theology, to either ignore that verse or say, "I don't understand that text." And we all do that, to some degree or another.

One time He was surprised that someone had so much faith (Matthew 8:5-10), and the other time He was surprised that some people had so little faith (Mark 6:1-6). I wonder if we ever surprise Him and, if so, is it by our faith or by our lack of it?
Mark 6:1-6 KJV
(1)  And he went out from thence, and came into his own country; and his disciples follow him.
(2)  And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
(3)  Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
(4)  But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
(5)  And he could there do no mighty work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
(6)  And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the villages, teaching.

Matthew 24:21 For then shall be — great tribulation, —such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
It is a difficult passage this one, brother. Is it past, or is it future? It sure looks like past.

Matthew 24:34 KJV
(34)  Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Also Matthew 16:28.

There was great tribulation in Jerusalem in AD70 when it was besieged. The historical account by Josephus is so graphic and detailed that it can make sensitive hearts full of grief for the awful things that happened there.

Thank you John. It takes away having to defend against a position that is not held. As stated before not joining in discussion on the timing of what is described in I Thessalonians 4
God bless
No problem brother.

I'm just thinking out loud, when I say that folks who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture, must have in mind a somewhat different and possibly excessive tribulation from that which is normally experienced as part of the Christian pilgrimage, as it says in scripture...

Acts 14:22 KJV
(22)  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

I wonder what sort of tribulation these folks mean? It cannot be mere death or beheadings, because these were commonplace in the early church. Therefore it must be something far worse, possibly mental torture, or stress, or life difficulties, or germ warfare (as we recently experienced in England) or sickness on a massive scale, complete unemployment, oceans going berserk, climate drastically changing, governments crumbling, and so on.

In the UK we may not have a meeting of two or more for any reason. All church services have been shut down. There are no weddings or baptisms, but funerals are exempt. We must stay at home except for going out for basic needs such as food and drink or medical supplies or necessary work or one piece of exercise per day.

It is astonishing.

The guv asked nicely at first, now they are enforcing it because they were ignored by many.

PRAISE THE LORD!

It is his day, and I will rejoice in it!
