I've been thinking about what I was saying about all the bad things people did in the bible. Think about it. They didn't leave it out when it could have easily been omitted. Peter denying Jesus 3 times. I'm not saying people should spread rumors, but if something is the truth, why not?

It's sort of like drinking hard liquor, and you wake up the next morning throwing up and have a pounding headache. You say to yourself, boy I'm never going to do that again. Then time passes by and the opportunity comes up again and you do the same thing. Then you are saying to yourself, again, I will never do that again.

Sorry but I was going to make a posts about the feet or was that feat. I feel a pull sometimes to go back, but then I don't. Just confusing to say the least.

One thing I want to clarify. When I said those things about the bible and other groups, if you find comfort in doing those things, I'm not bashing anyone for it. Just giving my opinion about things, which isn't to contradict of condemn anyone. Just my 2 cents worth, if it's even worth that much. :)

Personally I would rather have you just come out and say if it's me you are talking about. Too many smoke and mirrors and innuendos at TLWF that left many wondering, is it I. It might hurt my feelings to begin with, but I'll get over it, and keep reading the posts that others make. God knows many couldn't speak their mind or tell how they felt about certain things without conseque

I just wanted to add, that my wife and I were married by John and we've been married for over 40 years. If anyone was "unequally yoked" at the time, it was us. She's always been the steady one when it came to serving God and reading the word. Me? Not so much, but I'm getting there. :) Just a side note, and not trying to sway people one way or the other.

Maybe Larry B needs to start posting on here again. They seemed to be hanging on to just about every idea that he has about reaching out to other denominations. LOL Before anyone gets offended, I'm not anti denomination. I'm not anti Catholic either, just don't like the whole cover up about molesting children.

When I said we were black listed, we were told by the brothers that John had said something so we left for about a year. We decided to come back and I asked Marilyn to setup a meeting with John. She asked what about and I told her. We didn't get the meeting but things changed for the better. He was very sick, so I just have to assume that's why we didn't get the meeting but who kno

I will help you a little bit changedagain. I've said I still read the This Weeks and made a comment about buying the new worship tapes and they were great. I didn't know that RH has been married 4 times, which I don't know how that plays out with the ex-wives if they were banished or just stay or what. I would never condone that type of behavior at all. My opinions are that, just m

Let me give a little background about myself. I was born into the Walk in the 50's. My parents moved back a forth to another state, and at times went to Assembly of God and Pentecostal churches growing up. I got married by John in 77 at GC. If anyone was unequally yoked together it was us two. She was always reading the word and I pretty much didn't. I would say the main thing we had in
