I have not been online for several weeks now. I want to give an update.

First, I have moved to another town. My wife and I have found a place to call our own and plant some permanant roots. We have been very busy. Enrolling kids in new schools, etc.

I also have taken a break from posting here, as generally it takes way too much of my time, which I don't have enough of anyway. I am focusing more time on the family right now. I also took two weeks off from preaching, and contemplated resigning- but reconsidered.

I hope to help the coc in my area come to a better understanding of the truth and practices. One area in particular- sending young men into the ministry way too soon. The dangers awaiting young green unprepared men entering the ministry; the demands we put on them. We have many unprepared men who don't know the Scriptures and how to live them, but we send them into the battlefield.

My actual topix comments will be limited. I have no desire to engage in pointless arguments anymore. For those who desire to have real discussions, leave me a note personally addressed to me here, or send an email to davidallenprater@gmail.com. Phone number can be given on request. Are my big boy britches big enough "johnny" or whoever you really are?

I do hope to hear from BW, Randy, Bobby, and anyone else desiring a real Biblical discussion, not just arguments.

Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

Good to hear from you, Dave. I still check on here periodically but not too interested in the current trend on here. I do not mind discussing Biblical matters but with the RCC its much more … and a waste of time.

I decided to use the “speak where the bible speaks” blog just for a collection of progressive church of Christ data. I am also started another Blog today in which I plan to address the Church of God, Pentecostal, Charismatic movement.

Just recently, I reopened an old Blog and may try to get it up and going too. Like you, my time is very limited which makes it very hard to devote the time needed to really get a Blog widespread.

I wish you and your Family the best.

All too many just want and argument, rather than actual discussion. The most recent book I'm reviewing now is "Jesus' Words Only". Written by a lawyer, he has been trained in reasoning and argumentations. There are a number of arguments made by Paul, particularly in Acts, that he goes to show through some careful thought and the inconsistency of Pauls' testimony and teachings that many times Paul wasn't really saying what we have been taught to learn. It makes a lot of sense of the issues that Paul taught - such as his peculiar testimony of the Law being nailed to the cross, not to mention personally determining what is right or wrong by our own thoughts or conscience - instead of what Jesus actually and specifically taught was fact and not negotiable.

Good luck on your efforts. I plan some discussions locally when I finish the book and can present the issues in the light of our careful faithfulness to do what God said through His Son.

Like obeying the commandments and selling all that you own to be able to have eternal life?

Not negotiable.
