Update as of 1-6-06

I post in forums and also send out emails when things have changed. We are

Update as of 5-11-05
I started having a reading of the Bible a little over a week ago. I
read through Matthew and am currently in Mark. I am sitting in my house
reading the Bible out loud to all that enter. I do a 30 minute reading
Tuesday - Friday. The start time varies between 6pm-7:30 pm eastern.
I mail out the days invitation when I have decided on the time. Please
come by and enjoy the Word if you like. Also if you would like to actually
read on a day, talk to me and I will be more then happy to let you read for the
Do not forget that there are resources and other things we do to help you in
your walk with Jesus. Besides the Monday night Bible study at 9pm, there
is the Sunday night Bible study at Prayer Warriors. They have a new time
starting this week. It will begin at 8pm eastern.
Watch out for other members, who may be conducting Bible studies as well.
For instance tonight Dart will be having a study at 7pm at his house. Join
the club to receive all the invites. Until then have a blessed day.
Bible study for 5-2-05 & 5-9-05
We listened to a great message on the 2nd. We also had a wonderful
evening of testimony led by raelen on the 9th. It was so nice to hear each
others stories and the inspiration of how God brought each of us to Him. I
am sorry that none of these were recorded, but I have not seen much interest in
that part. So if someone would actually like to have our studies recorded,
please let me know and I will start that back up again when it is practical.
Bible study for 4-25-05
Tonight's message was brought to us by Isalyna. Her message was titled
"A greater freedom from Bondage". We were happy to be able to record the
message for you. Please download it and enjoy.

We have been hanging out a lot as usual. Don't forget to come on by and
look us up during the week. We are out here daily. We are most
always doing something fun.
Bible study for 4-18-05
Tonight we listened to a message from Mike Breaux out of Willow Creek in
Chicago. This guy is excellent. Check out the website for more
information on him.
The title was called My Upstream Story. Basically it was a message of
how we should live our life for God. We should not be a feather floating
in the wind. Also a large point was letting know how our lives touch other
lives, which touch other lives and so on. It was a comparison to a pebble
thrown in the middle of the water. The ripple effects continue outward.
The people that were there loved the message. I am unable to put a copy of
it up on the website. But I would be more then happy to have a replay for
one or more people and play that message for you.
Bible study for 4-11-05
Tonight our instructor was raelen. She gave us a lesson on "Christians
are an example". This message will make you reevaluate yourself and to try
and set a better example as a Christian. Please download and enjoy the
After the lesson we went on a buggy tour over New Kansas. We then had a
good time paintballing. Be sure to join us next week if you can.

We have been doing a lot of events and having a good time hanging out
together. Because Theremail has been messed up, I have not sent out many
notices. Just look for the members online or myself and IM us to see what
is going on. We have did tours around the islands and currently have a
dance club above Duda beach.
Bible study for 3-28-05
I just wanted to invite you to join the Prayer Forum, that we have started, in
relation to Christian Friends of There. This is place for you to enter prayer
requests, praise reports, and share other stuff too. Sometimes during the
week, we have needs, so here is place you can go to, and it will be prayed for
during the week, between meetings.
We really enjoyed the lesson and songs by isalyna tonight. The lesson
was Hoping in God. Also God has blessed her with a beautiful voice.
Fortunately you can check it out from the recordings. Afterwards, we did a
little indoor paintball. It was a lot of fun. Hope to see you next

Words to the songs
What A Child is Meant to Be -Kathryn Scott
In my weakness
I find that your strength knows no bounds
And in my loneliness
I find that the everlasting arms surround me
And even with this fragile heart
I find a place to rest here, Safe where you are…
And I am falling into grace again
And I am running where mercy never ends
Lord Im learning That your love can cover me
You are teaching me
What a child is meant to be
Precious Lord -Lynne
Precious Lord, I’ve come to worship.
Reaching to You, with all my yearning.
Forgetting all else, Lord, I am waiting here for You
Your steadfast Love, so everlasting.
Your sacrifice, it’s so Amazing
How could I ever cease to Glorify You, Lord.
You’re right here, right beside me,
Lord I lift my hands to Praise You
Jesus, Holy, Holy, Holy, is Your Name !
And I worship You, worship You Lord.
You give me joy, when I am hurting
Through it all, You’re right beside me.
Jesus, I know that You will never,never leave me

We had a great Bible study tonight. Delight taught us
about the names of God.
See: Names of God at Prayer Warriors Names of God Web Page
We had great fellowship and prayer. We attempted to record the Bible study
tonight, but due to technical difficulties we were unable to record it. I am
sorry to those with no sound and those members who missed it last night.
We hope to see you next week.
Party for Delight 3-14-05
After Bible study, we had a surprise birthday (real life)
party for Delight. It is said she is at least 29 :-)
We had a great time dancing and socializing. For those of you that stayed, thank
you. For those of you that were not there, you missed a lot of fun. Hope to see
you next time.
Bible study for 3-7-05
The Bible study went great. The topic was The Six Days of Creation.
Here are some MP3 files of the Bible study.

Here is a copy of the notes I used
The Six Days of Creation
Read Genesis Ch 1
Question: Do you believe that God did what he said? That he created the
Heavens and Earth and everything in it?
Question: Do you believe that God created everything in 6 ordinary 24-hour
days? Can the Hebrew word "day" in Genesis 1 mean anything other than an
ordinary 24-hour day? That is what I am going to talk about today.
First lets talk about what the Hebrew word of "Yom" actually means. It does
mean day. But it also means other periods of time. It just depends on the
context. Just as the meaning of day depends on context in English today.
So lets see how the word day is used elsewhere in the Bible. Anytime you see:
Day & number – 410 times; always means an ordinary day
Evening & morning together without day – 38 times; always means an
Evening or morning with day – 23 times; always means an ordinary day.
Night with day – 52 times; always means ordinary day.
Now lets read the parts of Genesis and see if there is a pattern. There is:
Evening – morning – number – day.
So what exactly is the problem? The problem is evolution and billions of
years. It is not biblical or true. It is simply the religion of the Humanist and
non-believers. And they will do anything to make it true, as to prove that man
is the end results of millions of years of evolution.
Where is the only place in the Bible that they can try to squeeze millions &
Billions of years. Since they can’t argue it between other events in the Bible,
they have to use Genesis 1.
They came up with theories to explain the first 6 days in Genesis. For
example the Gap – Theory: a period or millions or billions of years between
Genesis 1:1-2. The Day age theory, where every day is a huge amount of time.
Another feeble attempt to change Gods word. There are a lot of theories.
Did you know that the idea of Millions of years did not come into existence
until the 1700’s? The anti-Christians would do anything to disprove the Bible.
Evolution is also based upon faith and it must be true to them, because the only
other alternative is unacceptable – special Creation.
So begins the arguments of death before man. Dinosaurs – evolution. But God
said everything was very good after the 6 days of creation. This also means fall
of Satan had to be after the creation.
Then came the Geological column – only in textbooks – not out in the physical
world, showing fossils millions of years old in the rocks. Did you know they
date the fossils by the layer it is found in. But they also date the layers by
the fossils they find in them. Circular reasoning.
Faulty assumptions for dating: Carbon 14 one example. Dating live animals
wrong. They actually have a lot of dating methods and use which ever one will
get the results they need. So many things show their dating methods are flawed.
So are there examples that the Earth is young and that we were created and
did not evolve. There are so many, but that will have to be another study. But
lets just use a couple of examples; the salt in the ocean. Rain causes salt and
sediments to flow into the ocean. But if it has been doing this for billions of
years, the oceans would be more salty then the Dead Sea.
One other example is the Grand Canyon as an example or earth being millions
and billions of years old. They say look at what the Colorado River did over
millions of years. It carved out the Grand Canyon. It is amazing that there are
not corrosion marks betweens those levels. But did you know that Mt St. Helens
the Volcano that exploded in the 80s, produced a mini Grand Canyon with the same
layers that you would see at Grand Canyon. And this happened in just a few
hours. I encourage you to research more about God’s creation and the abundant
proof the Earth is young.
So why did God take so long in creation? He could of did it instantly, but he
had a purpose. He created a pattern for man to follow; work 6 days, take 1 off.
Did you know that the seven-day week comes from the Bible?
Many Christians & churches say that it does not really matter if it is six
literal days. They would rather go along with mans current interpretations of
the past and not follow the word of God. As long as you believe Jesus rose from
the dead and died for your sins, then the other part is not important. But this
is so false. You are denying the word of God so that it fits with mans current
views. Christians are quick to rework the word of God with each new "discovery"
of man. But the word of God remains true and has never been proven false. The
non-believer will say why should I believe in Jesus, when you don’t even believe
the entire Bible?
In Proverbs 30: 5-6 it says: Every word of God is flawless; He is a shield to
those who take refuge in Him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and
prove you a liar.
Christians must stand up for the entire Bible. It is the infallible word of
God. We are not talking about young earth creationist. We are talking about
Christians who believe in Biblical Authority.
By continually allowing man to add to the Bible, we are teaching generations
that the Bible is not the authoritative word of God. And look at society now. If
we continue down this road, we will lose more and more people. There is so many
explanations out there to help explain the tough questions. Please do some
research. It will help you with your walk and also help you to explain to the
world the answers they are looking for.
I would like to thank everyone for listening and open it up to questions,
comments, and discussion.

Welcome to our first meeting: 2-28-05
What is planned:
Tonight we will be discussing what topics we want to study. Also who
will lead the Bible study on a rotational basis. We will discuss the
format, time and dates of the Bible study.
What did we do?
- We met and greeted each other and decided on the format for the Bible
- It will be Monday evenings from 9-11 pm EST. It will not necessarily
last that long, or it could go longer. It will depend on the subject and
- We decided that we will cover many subjects such as: Creation,
Prophesy, the Flood, End Time - Revelations, Life application, Everyday life,
etc. We may also have testimonials one evening. Basically the subject will be
what the leader of the evening has decided.
- There will be rotational leaders each Monday night. This will
provide for the greatest variety and enjoyment by all the group. It will
not become a chore for one leader, but something to be enjoyed by all.
- The leaders for March will be as follows: March 7 - Sammy1000, 14 -
Elaur, 21 - isalyna, 28 - raelen.
- People were invited to join Christian Friends of There. Members have
access to set up events in the clubhouse.
- We also decided that we would record the Bible study. This will
allow everyone to hear our study. This will help the people of There
with no voice to enjoy it. Also if you miss the study, it will be
available for you as well.
- I will try to post in advance what we will be talking about for the future
Bible studies. I will do that here and on the forum for the Christian
Friends of There
- We will use the group to post comments, concerns, prayer request, and to
basically share with each other.
If you see anything that needs added, updated or corrected, please let me
