  • Re: Turning Logos Blog Comments into Conversation

    This is a very good move, imho. Also, I see that there have been many improvements to the organization and interlinks, etc of the Forum since I ventured here when it first started up. At that time, it was awkward to navigate and to find things, and it seemed like at least half of the really-frequent post-ers were intent on debating doctrine and practice

  • Re: Filtering

    Current "folders" (my terminology) are: General, Mac, Suggestions, Beta, Espanol, Files It appears that 95% of the postings are going into General and Suggestions. Finer resolution on those would be helpful, I think.

    [quote user="James Chaisson"] The word "cult" has lost all meaning in our day and age [/quote] I agree that the word is used too often out of ignorance, simply to criticize and disparage others. Sadly, so. However, a "conceptual" (ie neither complete nor precise) definition that I've found to be useful focuses on the Lord Jesus Christ. Denial of clear

    [quote user="JimDean"][quote user="James Chaisson"] So your definition rests on the identity of Jesus and nothing else? [/quote] ... (the confusion of a cult) revolves around WHO Jesus is, or WHAT He did and is doing for us, or both. [/quote] Small correction to prior post ... your phrase "the identity of Jesus and nothing else" is not what I was trying

    [quote user="Matthew C Jones"][quote user="JimDean"] I think it's fair to say that most groups that are "commonly labelled" as "cults" are ones that deny or supplant or replace or warp significant aspects of the truth about Jesus the Christ and King.[/quote] Your definition of a "cult" is the best functional definition I've see to date for my semantics

    [quote user="David Emme"]The Pastor and preacher boys I end up sendin my books to in the Philippines devour the books I send them. Perhaps a good thing we can do or get Logos to start doing is to pick a needy mission orginazation and allow us to send hard copies to. [/quote] A truly WONDERFUL suggestion, Dave! Here is the URL for a missionary family

    [quote user="Bohuslav Wojnar"] hy you would not use Outlook Express? [/quote] I have had the same feelings as Ron. The reason that I do not and WILL not use Outlook or Outlook Express is because throughout their history, they have been a MAGNET for virus and worm attacks ... a much "softer target" than even IE or IIS. Hacker's paradise ...

  • Re: Forum Software TOOOO Slow!

    I participate regularly in several forums produced by companies of comparable size and revenue base as Logos. Logos's is as quick or quicker than the others. Slowness in loading or painting can be due to internet connection, computer processor speed, video card ram, and other processes going on at the same time

    The best $40 you'll ever spend on (non-biblical :~) software can be used to purchase SnagIt. It captures just about ANYTHING, in all kinds of different forms. And it has a world-class simple graphics Editor. It captures an ENTIRE window, with auto-scrolling, even if too big to fit on a screen. AND it captures the TEXT AS TEXT, in additon to the color

    Oops please note my math was wrong ... not 400,000 years per year, but 20 million years/year (between 1800 and 2000). I corrected the post. Just goes to show how man makes mistakes! But GOD - the same yesterday, today, forever! hallelujah!

  • Re: Studying Creeds

    Thanks for your gracious reply, MJ. Although strongly opinionated on these topics, I do *not* intend nor desire to be argumentative. You've made two interesting comments which I'd enjoy the opportunity to respond to. In essence, I agree with you - as long as the right context and perspective and limitations are applied. I concur that your definition

    I certainly don't want to get embroiled in this interchange ... but I would like to recommend a book to all of you, whichever side of the fence you come down on. Unfortunately it's not yet in Libronix. "An Introduction to Classical Evangelical Hermeneutics" (KREGEL) ed by Mal Couch. It is well reasoned, well documented, and offers useful points to consider

  • Re: Stop the Off-topic Discussions!

    Thanks, Richard: I've been "wedded" to Libronix since 2.0 ... back in the 80's I used to have a couple thousand printed books and have given almost all of them away to a Bible College and some missionaries. So, Libronix is a big part of my life ... teaching is my primary gifting, and Libronix certainly does help "redeem the time" in preparation, making

    Hi, Ted: I got your email, and provided a response there. I think I got off on the wrong foot in the forums by posting stuff that's apparently not really in line with the intent. So, I'll stay off-line about stuff like this in the future. Anyone interested in discussing Biblical truth, please feel free to email me - or just go to the link provided earlier

    Hi, George: I assume that you're aware you can set the indexing in Bibles to either pages or verses (icon to the right if the address bar). And I agree that for 95% of typical Libronix use for Bibles, page numbers are not needed. However, having access to the pages numbers is useful for at least three reasons: 1. When teaching or communicating with

  • Re: Notes Files Suggestion/PLEA

    IE can open MS Word docs. Also, there is a free, skinny Word Viewer available from MS for download (see later post for URL) I do like the idea of slaving an instance of Word within Libronix, BUT with MS's characteristic "bloat" factor, it might slow down Libronix considerably. Maybe Office.org (free) would be a viable alternative? Actually, if Notes
