I have time for you. The Bible has been my guiding light for most of the 56 years of my life. My missionary parents in Brazil kindled a love for God`s Word by their example and their love for truth. The Lord has blessed my husband and me with responsible, independent children who love and serve the Lord and are our best friends. I would enjoy discussing any subject or problem from a Biblical perspective.
I help lead music in a small Southern Baptist Church. Although I rarely have the opportunity to play, I do play the bass guitar, drums, tambourine, harmonica and piano. I like Southern Gospel and praise choruses, but only know by heart the words from the hymnal, and my vocal range is half an octave lower than most music is written, but fortunately my husband transposes well and also plays by ear.
Christianity is a life or death matter--more important than anything else.
I am open to whatever God wants to teach me.
Many Baptists feel that the signs and wonders are not for today, but don't know why Biblically. The NT signs and wonders had the purpose to confirm, to authenticate the new covenant.(Mark 16:20, Acts 2:22, 14:3, Hebrews 2:3,4) That purpose has been fulfilled and we must be alert about Matthew 24:24.(But I have many charismatic friends.)
Another charismatic issue that many Baptists face is faith. Faith must be faith in God, not faith in what we say or feel about something. That means we must trust that God's answer to our prayer is what is indeed best, even if it's not to our liking.

Itís good to hear from you again, Elaine. I hope my thought on being born again will encourage you and not be a problem with your church. I realize that some churches donít agree, but I believe
Thanks for writing, Ram. Let me come to your subject from a little different angle. I think the Bibleís emphasis on behavior (the verses you mention) is to remind us that we canít behave well enough
Thank you for your clarification, Mrs. Holland. The twisted person trying to hurt your husband didnít give their location, but I now noticed that the person used a full name, Shawnasi F. Holland, which
Shawnasi is a beautiful name! Iím glad youíve written and are concerned about salvation. Cheating on your husband for four years could be an indication that you havenít been saved yet. Youíre right
Dear Ann, I can hardly imagine what you have experienced! If only you lived near the MO/KS border and could come to our church. We have mostly older people in our small church so to have someone
