Subject: Selah Meaning
I want to thank you for this posting of the meaning of Selah. As an African American this name has special meaning to my family and me; it is the name of the earliest ancestor that we can identify born a slave in the late 1700's early 1800's...paternal my grandmother six times removed. I have always wanted to know its meaning. Thank you for this information.

I have read through quite a few of your bible studies and I am very impressed. Very few congregations hold to the doctrine of sanctity of marriage and to other profound beliefs that the bible clearly explains. There were a couple questions I had concerning how The Mountain Retreat views adornment and the works of grace, which I did not see details regarding. I would appreciate correspondence and I am looking forward to hearing from someone. Any time a group is found who holds to bible standards (even the stricter ones) it is a blessing! :)

I am so tired of life's problems and pressure points that sometimes I just want to give up. However, I know that this is rebellion against God. I just completed reading your 1999 article on "What About Christians and the Sin of Suicide?". It poignantly uses the Bible to substantiate the premise that suicide is not an option for the true believer. Just think of it - You wrote it 10 years ago but it reaches forth a decade later with the power of God to an unhappy believer who is really just feeling sorry for himself. The scriptural references and your dissertation has given me hope to not give up. Although life is difficult and I am not sure how to manage my personal problems, I will keep my eyes on Jesus. I can make it one more day for Him.
Thank you so much and keep blessing the Body of Christ with your gifts!

Your article titled, What is the Age of the World? really shook me up! It's dated 1996 and I am wondering, would you stick by the dates you provided, particularly 7BC as the year Jesus was born? I ask because if Jesus started His ministry at about 30, using 7BC as His birthdate would make Him 35 or 36 years old when he started.

I retired 2 years ago and now take advantage of my free time for surfing the web for Bible study resources, information and edification. I read and consider the opinions of many theologians, but unfortunately I sometimes feel they are more influenced by church tradition rather than a studied consideration of scripture. That is why I was pleasantly surprised by your resource. I hope the Mountain Retreat will prosper and many will be blessed by your sincere and God blessed study habits. Thanks for your ministry!

Your resources are the most helpfull I have found anywhere in defending biblical truth against pre-mil error. Among the evangelicals that I have close associations, dozens of congregations in Southern California, I am definately in the minority veiw and have had some heated discussions with friends and family. Thanks for equipping me with the fantastic resources online. You have energized my walk as a Christian looking forward to the glorious return of our Lord Jesus! God Bless You All.

i made a mistake when i mentioned PREDESTINATION instead of PERSEVERANCE OF THE SAINTS< although the two are related.
Tony, do you have any suggestions about healthy churches here in Chicago - i am being called out of my own. let me know if you can , please know as well that i wrote you a heart felt e-mail on my present lack of reformed true fellowship and teaching. i do understand that i am using a free e-mail account. my e-mail was not of risk, but i am guessing you do not open these types. this is my second attempt at appeal.

I was very saddened to read your article on eunuchs. How can you think yourself an author and not understand that eunuchs are gay individuals? I would suggest that you educate yourself before preaching such nonsense. Eunuchs are still being drawn to Christianity, and I am so glad that they are despite sites like yours that posts inaccurate information.

I came to Christ ironically through who I believe now to be a false teacher. I was wrapped up in ultra-dispensationalism, the end of the world, the pre-trib rapture.... you name it. After some crucial sanctifying works of God, I came to study the Reformation, by which many truths came to light for me. I have had some very good times with God and some very bad times as well, by this I mean loss of faith or simply sin. He has never let me go however. The TULIP theory of reformed theology rang true for me and my understanding of God's truth. I am one person though that believes strongly in the "P" standing for PRESERVATION not PREDESTINATION. I am living proof of this doctrine. The 2 words can actually co-exist in their intent, as I know under the mystery of God that somehow we ARE predestined, but are also sustained. In short, God has used your website to bring me back to Him. He has preserved me through your obedience to the One who TRULY was obedient. God's grace

I was on the internet looking for a biblical definition of Covenant, I stumble upon your website, so it would seem. Your definition was scriptual,and very understandable. I continued to view your website and became intrigued with your adherence and revelation of God's word. I read your statement of faith and had a question about The Church, "We believe in the external, corporate or local Church, wherein the elect may be found among those who may profess Christ, but may not truly be elect. God only knows. It is this external, local or corporate body that Christ warned of the consequences of unfaithfulness and apostasy (Revelations chapters 2-3). Christ has given spiritual gifts to those in the local Churches, some blessed to be prophets, some evangelists, some teachers, and some deacons and ministers. Each in his own right is equipped of God to edify the Church that it might grow in grace".
Does this mean you believe Eph. 4:11-16 as listed? i.e apostles and pastors.
