As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

                You have to be a super member to post pictures right ? Maybe I'll become a super member so I can post a picture of this book.
                Amos and 'Great Cloud of Witnesses' by E.W. Bullinger.
                The first thing a preacher needs to learn how to do is preach Jesus Christ and him crucified!!

                Now, if you can get that down then you can go on. Don't try to get mysterious too soon!!
                Let the mysteries go! Just preach Christ Jesus and him crucified.

                Unto the Jews a stumbling block... we don't want that!!
                Unto the Greeks foolishness, but unto those that are called... that's a good sign that you are called.

                You can preach Christ Jesus and him crucified!

                  Bible constantly with different translations all over the house. They will soon be joined by a copy of the Koran I'm borrowing from library Felt it was important to to least read the thing if I want to respond with some understanding to the unusual amount of people around me that want to talk about it.

                  I also read Mathew Henry commentaries. I'm also going slowly through "Spiritual Avalanche"by Steve Hill.

                    I read portions of the Koran before. In summary it teaches that if you want God to like you, do such and such.

                        The Glory of Heaven by John MacArthur
                        One Perfect Life by John MacArthur
                        Improving your serve by Chuck Swindoll

                        One Perfect Life is a great book. Glory of Heaven is okay. Some chapters are realllllly good but he kind of rails against other books a little too much. He isnt speaking falsely but when I feel he's made strong rebukes using truth, which are adequate enough, he keeps going.... .. 'One Perfect Life' should be in everyone's library. No joke.

                        Swindoll's book is great. I appreciate his honesty, its funny and I will be reading his book 'Christian Life' after Im done with MacArthur's. I like to read several books in the same time period..

                        Sometimes people want a complex answer to the hard questions to satisfy intellectuality. Jesus is Lord is the simple, beautiful truth.

                          Exodus.

                          For a while I enjoyed sci-fi, and fantasy books but OT KJV in the Bible are not only infinitely more epic but truth!

                            So hard for me to keep up with good Christian books, since Scripture has been so time consuming these days.
