thanks, that is an important point worth asking about i ought to think about several questions like that

i dont know maybe it is reformed originally i only know there are arminist sentiments because some of the people were from those churches, i dont know about steve green yes im not keen on parachurch organisations and have steered clear in the past as the biblical model is for a church
however under the circumstances i see a model for a church affiliated to christian voice
it needs to be church based tho
I like going to church but i dont see existing churches in my area able to deal with the challenges to come.
the only reason i go to church is for fellowship with the few reformed i can find, i dont like being with practicing atheists i especially dislike the universal acceptance of the NIV which in my view is the number one fatal mistake which will guarantee the church remains innefectual and under judgement. Ive been reading ezekiel this week, the 'universal christian ' church is undoubtedly guilty of idolotary, devil worship and all the crimes of israel in ezekiels day - id rather seek out some infidels and see............

The Chinese brethren have a Bible which is 100 years old which,
Totally, its nice to know that they have a traditional bible, I see Gods providence in this
are you a member of christian voice john ?i got my news letter yesterday, its very good im thinking of starting a branch in anglesey ( a reformed one of course !) The chair steve green seems very clued up and i enjoy his writing he seems to do the whole magazine himself - a doer of the word - they are a bit arminist but you wouldnt know unless you met them and they are very bold with proclaiming the gospel
good links jim, you are fourtunaye to have such a good church
i was talking to an elderly friend recently and she told me that biblical history seems to go in cycles or phases of 14 generations or about 500 years, yesterday i was listening to a discusion on economics by a research institute and they said the same thing ! and they believe we are in the midst of one such transition which will see the centre of gravity in power go from west to east, its obvious to us i suppose but interesting that the secular mindset can sss it also

ha ha ! no i never worried about that he is a very wicked cat on the quiet and would be sure to suffer with the unrepentant
he has been guilty of consuming two of my budgies and indirectly causing the death of another thru loneliness - its the bright colors set him off also he really hates birds for some reason i mean really hates them
also he ate my sons hamster and tried to eat the degus. he is a serial offender toward the other pets he is also very sly and will secret himself within striking distance of food laid on the table
no batman is an extremely wicked creature although i mostly overlook this
mmm yes i see john, thats kind of you to remember.
Happiness, the cause of much distress in the world it seems to me ! well the pursuit of it.
how often have we heard our friends say i only want to be happy ? or said it ourselves. it sounds like a simple modest request but i observe its the most elusive substance as if people had a right to be happy or its a normal state of being but its not
i have very seldom if ever been happy in my life tho things are better now but i understand better now that i am wiser thru the knowlege of God.
the world is pursuing happiness but it cant be found without the knowlege of our creator and its not a worthwhile pursuit anyway,
as we all know here if we seek the kingdom all things will be added unto us
God Himself is our reward as God said to Abraham 'I am your exceeding great reward' genesis 15v1
Thank God that the Gospel has set us free from the vain worldly pursuit of happiness !

I feel really guilty about this and im willing to spend a few quid to salve my consience
is that phone A-MILL-2050 ?
Hi Alan, yes he really is called batman on account of his special powers which mainly consist of being able to scale high vertical walls also he is black he always sits with us on a chair at mealtimes and watches us eat never misses it.
Neil my thoughts on the rapture with yours in so far as it will hardly be noticed by the rest of them ! There will be so few that itll be put down to a mystery virus and the corpses will still be here. Itll be a mystery for a day or two then everyone will lose interest.

It was lovely, a happy day brought about by the charitable God who was merciful unto you and blessed you.
i dont like the 'were ' john, not sure where you are going with this ?
whiskerswarnings wrote: Batman, nice cat! Needs a Left Behind lined paper basket so he says in his email to me
Thanks ! add a gross to my shopping cart !
worryingly, weve just moved in to a house which does not have a catflap to allow batman free ingress and egress to the house in the event of my / our removal.
If he is stuck inside he will starve to death within reach of abundant supplies of whiskas which even he will be unable to access, if outside he will be cold and have to defend himself which is already becoming increasingly difficult as most of his teeth have fallen out.
1. all pretribbers should regularly test the operation of their pets cat / dogflap
2. pretribbers should make at least one reliable friend amongst the amillenial brethren who will in the event be able give succour to deserted pets
3. failing this - befriend an infidel ! your absence and forward preparation will be a tremendous Gospel witness and the grateful animal will be a constant reminder that you escaped and a comfort to them during the awful events to come.
4. leave a tract in a silver cartrige around their collar, go easy on the 'i told you so' and allow them to swop the silver for food if they will refrain from eating your pet

yup thats pretty much it exactly, my own thoughts have been leading in this direction for a while now, we are in a sea of deception and NIV apostatsy soem a very few are waking upi was reading 2 cor 2 this morning
14 Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place. 15 For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: 16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? 17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

bless you brother an edifying and fearful post, and how know ye my given name
i have some islands named after me and discovered by one of my illustrious ancestors james mortlock on a voyage from the australias to britain at a time when our brethren on this forum were yet within the embrace of empire and the blessed johnathan edwards could count himself a briton
i should add that i have taken the liberty to advertise my fame in my genesis and geomorphology presentation by including these islands which are the remains of guyots which are truncated volcanoes having had their tops chopped off by the raging waters of the genesis flood and evidence of the sea basins dropping at the end of the genesis flood according to psalm 118
I see those poor baptist folk are still detained by the demon worshippers in haiti - this is past a joke - they have been there for weeks now, the 'government' has made its point and they should have been released now.
The vindictive nature of this imprisonment is now clear and likewise the wilful disregard by the US govt to secure their release.
God is revealing the wickedness in high places america and haiti will be judged for this
God shall speedily avenge his elect it his treasure stored up in heavan
We should pray for their immediate release and the destruction at Gods hands of their oppressors
