The title is the post. In my brief life I've never seen so much hate, so many lies, so much adversity from those than say the are Christian and also democrats. I try to stay away from most of what is called news, the daily body count, etc. But I do want to know the gist of governmental going on like the Kavanaugh confirmation. I see that the accuser of Kavanaugh is finding the kitchen a lot hotter place to cook than she thought. She has agreed to testify IF on her terms. Democrats vow to impeach him if confirmed. What a job to have!
My belief is than multitudes that believe themselves to be Christians are not. Church attendance deceives many to believe they are Christians but they still stand up for abortion and other anti biblical...
Jesus had just healed a boy born blind, and the Pharisees wouldn’t hear it. John 9:26-29 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes?  He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples?  Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.  We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow , we know not from whence he is.
In verse 39 Jesus says: “For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.”
 Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found...
"...Memories are therefore very malleable, they can be distorted and changed easily, as many studies in our lab have shown. For example, we have found that suggestions and imagination can create memories that are very detailed and emotional while still completely false. Jean Piaget, a famous developmental psychologist, remembered all his life in vivid detail an event in which he was abducted with his nanny – she often told him about it. After many years, she confessed to having made the story up. At that point, Piaget stopped believing in the...
I feel this is a much debated subject.
People like to read more into Scripture than what is there.
I've read of pastors who believe Jesus gives everyone a 2nd chance after death because he doesn't want anyone to go to hell.
some believe that when Jesus went to hell, he preached the Gospel and gave everyone from old a 2nd chance.
But the Bible doesn't say that.
Or does it.
Anyone have anything to say about this?
I believe every main eschatology or millennial theory rests on one error. They all teach the Kingdom of God is physical instead of being spiritual. So all try to build a physical kingdom on earth in Christ’s name. This includes Amillennialists, Postmillennialists, and Premillennialists who look for a physical kingdom of the future that will last 1000 years.
But scripture teaches the Kingdom is here now - spiritually. It is not of this world. And it is everlasting.
The Amillennialists say the kingdom is here now, but it is physical. And this led to the persecution of innocent people by the Institutional State Churches over the centuries.
The Postmillennialists say the same thinking the Church will finally influence and dominate civil...
I keep hearing this song on Christian radio; and it has elements of wrongness to it.
It implies that we ought to compromise truth for the sake of unity.
I will answer the question...we are divided because we don't study to show ourselves approved so that we might know what the Bible teaches (2 Timothy 2:15, Acts of the Apostles 17:11)...and also, when we do understand what it teaches, many people do not like it, so they heap to themselves teachers to tell them what their itching ears want to hear...and in doing so they follow that new teacher and forsake sound doctrine (which is the only thing that true Christians can be unified over, other than the fact that we are redeemed through His shed blood) for what may eventually turn out to...
....is a man-made slogan...possibly made up by a converted used car salesman. It is from a very human perspective as it seeks guarantees.
But why can't God be trusted to do what is right?
Do we rely on a guarantee that's proof against God's judgments?
In the world we look for guarantees because we don't trust the word of a man or business.
But the only guarantee that exists in the universe is trusting God.
There IS security in walking by the Spirit. We know that when we are in God's presence there is security. But does that mean we can't come out of the Spirit? Of course not. But they who have faith in God are already secure in Him. HE is eternal security. There is no eternal security for having certain beliefs. That is a...
Can I ask you a question? Acknowledging our transgressions is a given, imo, for this group and
most people with a conscience.
What are my transgression at this point point in my life, anyway?
Accidentally, hurting someone's feelings, maybe....which wasn't even my intention?
That's about as bad as it gets...my murdering and pillaging are behind me now.
Why would I ever want to keep my sins ever before me? Do you do that?
Being an ex-Catholic, I am very aware of the 'guilt and shame, I am a worm, and filthy rags mentality'.
Well, I make mistakes, I regret them, vow never again, am so sorry, often make amends and then leave them behind me.
Point: If my cup is filled with guilt and shame....there is no room for God's Love!
Okay...I read this short quote and thought.." I don't feel that it is THAT easy!!"
Has anyone found , that once we have surrender fully ( and really believe that we have done so ) ...that it is a "once and for all thing". Over with, done and dusted...never ever to fall back into our own will or way again?
I wish that I could say that for me what is written below is true.
I have thought so many times over the decades...but I cannot say that it all "stayed in it places" ..and the old-man is dead and over with.
Or have I got it wrong ?...that the will and my own life, which I surrendered in what I believed to be genuine brokenness...is not one and the same with the 'old-self man'? Please comment on the below.
