Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible LANGUAGES BURST FORTH RAPIDLY 1 February 2008 (Eited by DCB) Scientists from the University of Oxford in the UK and others sought to answer "Do most changes come about slowly and gradually or rapidly within relatively short spans of time?" To answer this "the researchers studied sets of basic vocabulary from 490 differen languages in Europe, Asia and Africa. They used the same kind of computer program biologists use to create family trees to track the appearance of related words and so trace the evolution of new languages from older ones."

The results of the research "showed many of the novel words that make up new languages appear in an initial burst over a relatively short period of time."

Editor’s Comment: The answer is readily available in the Bible, for it tells us in Genesis 11: 7- 9 that the Lord confounded "their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.",22049,23147634-5001028,00.html CHILD CARE LINK WITH STRESS LEVELS 2 February 2008 (Edited by DCB) "CHILDREN from loving homes become stressed when placed in poor quality child-care centres, new scientific research has found." However, those "children from disadvantaged families are better off in child care even if the quality is substandard, according to a new study.",22049,23130315-5001021,00.html PARENTS' PRE-SCHOOL ROLL-CALL 21 HOURS EARLY IN BIRCHGROVE 30 January, 2008 (Edited by DCB) Sydney, Australia "PARENTS frantic to secure pre-school spots for their children for 2009 camped outside an inner west school from midday yesterday." Even if you were first in line you were not guaranteed a spot for your child as "special needs" are considered first. However, this did not put off parents as they came "armed with portable chairs, sleeping bags, food and even a few drinks" waiting for the office to open. This pre-school is popular as "The fees for the pre-school are $85 a child each week which include meals, compared with childcare prices in the area of about $100 a day."

Editor’s Comment: I do not mean to stir up the ire of some but God never intended for the children to be dropped off at a centre for someone else to rear. Biblically, children need to be reared by a father and mother and not a child care centre! BAPTIST CONVENTION IN ATLANTA SPARKS HOPE FOR FUTURE UNITY 2 February 2008 (Edited by DCB) ATLANTA – "The organizers of this week's Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant admit that time will tell whether the gathering in Atlanta was a ‘moment or a movement.’" This gathering of over fourteen thousand was "conceived in large measure by former President Jimmy Carter". That in itself tells any discerning person something. It was three days "of sermons, speeches, music and workshops with a focus on such topics as evangelism, poverty, immigration, peacemaking, responding to natural disasters and protecting religious liberty." The speakers for this gathering were liberals such as womanizer Bill Clinton, Mr. Bore himself, Al Gore, "…(who at a luncheon attended by 2,000 gave one of his now-famous slide presentations on global warming), Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, Children's Defense Fund founder Marian Wright Edelman, author John Grisham, and former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher." Mr. Carter said, as a new evangelical or liberal would, that there were many that may, "differ on Bible interpretation, the death penalty, gay rights and the role of women in the church…" but as "…Baptists should still be able to work together for evangelism and service." Note the words working "together" through evangelism and missions. This I the very thing that has brought us the ecumenism of today! Independent Baptists are as guilty of this as Carter and his ilk. This ecumenism will lead the world directly to that one whose "number is Six hundred threescore and six." GORE: ‘HEAPING CONTEMPT’ ON CREATION INCONSISTENT WITH GLORIFYING GOD 1 February 2008 (Edited by DCB) "Christians who speak out for environmentalism can combat skepticism and end America’s addiction to carbon fuels, Al Gore told 2,000 Baptists who gathered to hear him Jan. 31 in part of a three-day celebration of denominational unity." Gore went on to say that "…improved health care, higher infant-survival rates, lower poverty in general, and education for girls and women all reduce the need or desire for large families. In turn, smaller families reduce demands on water and energy."

Editor’s Comment: Psalm 2: 1 "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?" Spurgeon makes this comment which I believe fits these professing "Christian" environmentalists’ "Where there is much rage there is generally some folly, and in this case there is an excess of it." BURLESON, OUTSPOKEN PASTOR AND BLOGGER, RESIGNS FROM INTERNATIONAL MISSION BOARD 30 January, 2008 (Edited by DCB) GAINESVILLE, Fla. – "Wade Burleson, the prominent pastor and blogger who railed against what he saw as an excessive narrowing of parameters within the Southern Baptist Convention, has resigned from his position as a trustee of the SBC’s International Mission Board." "Burleson has long clashed with some of his colleagues on the board. In 2005, IMB trustees decided voted not to appoint missionary candidates who said they practice ‘private prayer language’ or who have not received ‘biblical baptism’."

Editor’s Comment: I am amazed at what goes on in the SBC but also I am amazed at what I have seen in the "Independent" Baptists. I predict that this private prayer language will become an issue within some of the Independent Baptists in the not so far future. The only thing is many of the Independent Baptist Mission Boards are not as open and it might take more time for it to leak out than it did for the SBC International Mission Board. NEW YORK COURT RULING ADVANCES GAY MARRIAGE 5 February 2008 (Edited by DCB) NEW YORK – "Recent rulings in Oregon and New York have provided victories for supporters of same-sex unions and setbacks for gay-rights opponents." An appellate panel in New York unanimously ruled that the state of New York Legislature decides "to prohibit the recognition of same-sex marriages solemnized abroad" it "must recognize such unions legally performed in other states."

Editor’s Comment: Psalm 7:11 "God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.",25197,23171390-25090,00.html 7 February 2008 TIZZ IN THE PEWS (Edited by DCB) Sydney, Australia - "A FLOCK of up to 100 Christian ministers is planning to march in next month's Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade in Sydney to apologise for the way churches have treated homosexuals in the past. The group, called 100 Revs, says churches have often been ‘profoundly unloving’ towards homosexuals and transsexuals. ‘For these things we apologise. We are deeply sorry and ask the forgiveness of the gay community,’ the group says. The 100 Revs says its members are not official representatives of their churches or denominations. Spokesman Mike Hercock says new members are signing up every day and the target of 100 marchers is likely to be achieved. The apology follows Sydney Anglican Archbishop Peter Jensen's decision to boycott the once-in-a-decade Lambeth conference of Anglican bishops in Canterbury starting on July 17 because of the presence of attendees who have liberal views on homosexuality. The boycott is not supported by Anglican Primate of Australia Phillip Aspinall."

Editor’s Comment: Psalm 50:18 "When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers." From the Treasury of David we read the following "And hast been partaker with adulterers. One by one the moral precepts are thus broken by the sinners in Zion. Under the cloak of piety, unclean livers conceal themselves. We may do this by smiling at unchaste jests, listening to indelicate expressions, and conniving at licentious behaviour in our presence; and if we thus act, how dare we preach, or lead public prayer, or wear the Christian name? See how the Lord lays righteousness to the plummet. How plainly all this declares that without holiness no man shall see the Lord! No amount of ceremonial or theological accuracy can cover dishonesty and fornication: these filthy things must be either purged from us by the blood of Jesus, or they will kindle a fire in God's anger which will burn even to the lowest hell."

Because of Grace and Calvary,

David C. Bennett, D. Min.
