There is a video going around, that is a bit scary concerning Covid-19 and vaccines and pharmaceutical companies.
I would like to know how to find out if this could be legit or not?

If it is true, what can be done about it?

Sun Apr 05, 2020 1:04 AM Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly [by chestnutmare]
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom” (Col 3:16). The word “dwell” there means “to keep house,” to have authority over its arrangements, as having the right to control. We are to be governed by it, to receive our instructions and directions from it. The word “richly” signifies “largely,” as a whole, in its utmost compass; in contrast with sparsely or fragmentally. Make it your food and drink, your sustenance and strength, your comfort and joy: only by so doing will it have its proper influence over you. Then will the Word abide in you not merely as a fact in the brain, but as that which is actually realized in your experience.

Sat Apr 04, 2020 4:46 PM If You are Baptized you are not saved? [by Tom]
I was following a discussion between other Reformed Christians and it was actually getting quite heated.
I guess what really got the conversation going is someone saying if a person is not baptized they are not a Christian.

When people disagreed saying all Christians need to be baptized and if they do not want to; it is an indication they probably not saved.

The other person said that all Reformed Christians agree that if one is not baptized they are not saved.

That really got the conversation going.
Then one person agreeing with the person said “Christian, does not equal saved.”
Then they posted Acts 8:13 and John 6:66 to prove it.
I read these verse as well as a few Reformed Commentaries and still can not understand where this person is coming from.

Any thoughts?

The Means of our Effectual Call

by Thomas Watson


The ordinary means which the Lord uses in calling us, is not by raptures and revelations—but is,
(1.) By His Word which is "the rod of his strength" (Psalm 105:2). The voice of the Word is God's call to us; therefore He is said to speak to us from heaven (Heb. 12:25). That is, in the ministry of the Word. When the Word calls from sin, it is as if we heard a voice from heaven.
(2.) By His Spirit. This is the loud call. The Word is the instrumental cause of our conversion, the Spirit is the efficient cause of our conversion. The ministers of God are only the pipes and organs; it is the Spirit blowing in them, which effectually changes the heart. "While Peter spoke, the Holy Spirit fell on all those who heard the word" (Acts 10:44). It is not the farmer's industry in ploughing and sowing, which will make the ground fruitful, without the early and latter rain. Just so, it is not the seed of the Word that will effectually convert, unless the Spirit puts forth His sweet influence, and drops as rain upon the heart. Therefore the aid of God's Spirit is to be implored, that He would put forth His powerful voice, and awaken us out of the grave of unbelief. If a man knocks at a gate of brass, it will not open; but if he comes with a key in his hand, it will open. Just so, when God, who has the key of David in His hand (Rev. 3:7) comes, He opens the heart, though it be ever so fast locked against Him.
