1 the SBF what can we do? Note John 17:17 justme Fri 06/26/15, 5:36pm 242293
  ED" Amen and Amen. Let us pray that there is an awakening is those who once were here and those presently active in the SBF. Pray that there will be a sensitivity within all those involved to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Lockman may well own this SBF but it is really the Lords.

Let each of us welcome each other with brotherly love and visitors with a genuine kindness, and openness that Jesus Christ would do.

2 The Kingdom of God Note Luke 8:1 DocTrinsograce Fri 06/26/15, 3:04pm 242291
  "For if we inquire whence it [Kingdom of God] is, God created it; or whence its wisdom, God illumined it; or whence its blessedness, God is its bliss. It has its form by subsisting in Him; its enlightenment by contemplating Him; its joy by abiding in Him. It is; it sees; it loves. In Godís eternity is its life; in Godís truth its light; in Godís goodness its joy." --Augustine of Hippo (354-430)

3 I Lost not One Note John 18:9 DocTrinsograce Thu 06/25/15, 3:24pm 242290
  "The words thus referred to are those of John 17:12. There they primarily apply to spiritual and eternal safety; here to what is, in the first instance at least, temporal deliverance. It is impossible to imagine that the Evangelist did not understand this: but the powers of the world and of evil are so identified in his eyes that oppression by, or deliverance from, the one is oppression by, or deliverance from, the other. The temporal is the shadow of the eternal, and the principles working out upon man's stage here stretch into the long hereafter. In addition to this, however, it is to be noticed that the temporal deliverance thus afforded was really a means to secure the spiritual safety of the disciples. Seized by the Roman guard, they would in all probability have denied their Master even more faithlessly than Peter was so soon to do." --Phillip Schaff

4 A Life Founded on Doctrine Note 1 John 3:18 DocTrinsograce Tue 06/23/15, 3:01pm 242285
  "The issue in the Church of the present day is not between two varieties of the same religion, but, at bottom, between two essentially different types of thought and life. There is much interlocking of the branches, but the two tendencies, Modernism and supernaturalism, or (otherwise designated) non-doctrinal religion and historic Christianity, spring from different roots. In particular, I tried to show that Christianity is not a 'life,' as distinguished from a doctrine, and not a life that has doctrine as its changing symbolic expression, but that -- exactly the other way around -- it is a life founded on a doctrine." --J. Gresham Machen (1923)


5 the SBF what can we do? Note John 17:17 DocTrinsograce Mon 06/22/15, 4:17pm 242283
  Hi, justme...

I did not mean to disparage your question, or to imply that it was not an important one.

As a believer I have come to understand the necessity of prayer in every endeavor.

As Solomon put it, "Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain." (Psalms 127:1)

We are here about His work, His purpose, and His plan, His word. If the SBF is man's work, man's purpose, man's plan, or man's word, then it will fade. See Psalm 33:16-18.

Our brother Hank knew these things very well, for it was about these things that I spoke to him in his final weeks. I am certain that he now knows them certainly than ever in this life. Our final conversation was about 2 Corinthians 1. See how that passage fits in the SBF effort?

Nonetheless, do not assume that because there are few who post, that this is not something entirely under God's control. Our faith is rooted in things that are more certain than what we see, more concrete than what we feel, and more secure than what we know.

Shall we demonstrate our confidence in the God we serve by petitioning Him to magnify Himself, even though we diminish? Shall we not evidence our hope by continuing even when our numbers are few?

Hank even asserted to us once that the greatest battle of the believer was perseverance and endurance (post #60800). What is more, he affirmed a call to prayer (post #21177). Why shan't we do both?

In Him, Doc

6 the SBF what can we do? Note John 17:17 justme Mon 06/22/15, 3:18pm 242282
  Doc: Perhaps some would say they have prayer for a long time already. I can't help but see how many were very regular in posting but are no longer here. I am deeply grieved that so many in the past who put so much into the SBF are gone. I remember Hank, and for many years spent hour upon hour into building this forum, I have been with this forum from 2000, others like EdB have been from the beginning, and so have others. I am deeply concerned for the SBF.

One concern I have is we all knew who the moderator was when hank was moderator. Now it's something nobody cares to say. I wonder why? The final authority is sometimes who is the firmist or cuts the conversation when it gets too war. Sometimes issues need to be dialogued out for the Lords glory so we can see love at work.

I am not ashamed to admit when I am wrong, or to say I am sorry, or even to say I admire someone. I am not ashamed to call for prayer as well. Why are prayer request not encouraged? I know this is a Bible Forum, but we get to know each other and it's nice to know others are joining us in prayer. Well at least I think so.

I ask again what can be done to improve our SBF?

7 Women in Obedience to God Note Acts 17:4 DocTrinsograce Sat 06/20/15, 8:16am 242278
  "To me, a lady is not frilly, flouncy, flippant, frivolous and fluff-brained, but she is gentle, she is gracious, she is godly and she is giving. You and I have the gift of femininity... the more womanly we are, the more manly men will be and the more God is glorified. Be women, be only women, be real women in obedience to God." --Elisabeth Elliot (1926-2015)


8 Truth at all costs! Note Is 42:21 DocTrinsograce Thu 06/18/15, 6:34pm 242274
  ďPeace if possible, truth at all costs.Ē --Martin Luther (1483-1546)


9 Let God be God Note Acts 7:32 DocTrinsograce Tue 06/16/15, 4:15pm 242270
  "Let God be God." --Martin Luther (1483-1546)
