Vatican launches $110 'click to pray' wearable rosary - CNN
"The Rosary is going mobile.
The Vatican announced the launch of the "Click to Pray eRosary" Wednesday. October is the month of the Rosary.
The eRosary is an app-driven device that can be worn as a bracelet. To activate it, all you have to do is make the sign of the...
The carnal man is always looking to get away with things. People like the free stuff. So when the seductive power of the devil gets behind something that SOUNDS like it's from God...it's very hard to resist...unless one loves the truth.
So how can one avoid this great delusion of a spiritual immunity from judgment for actions and thoughts in these mortal bodies?
Is seeking a selfish advantage Christ-like? Is it like Christ to look to get away with sins?
“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matt. 27:46)
I believe that Christ suffered and died on the cross by the actions of godless men and in accordance with God's plan. Jesus was "forsaken" to suffer the cross.
I have seen it argued that on the cross God separated from Jesus.
My argument against that view is it presents God as faithless to the righteous and unrighteous to His word. We can expect God to be ever present in us because he was present with Christ through His sufferings and vindicated Him by raising Him from the dead.
What are the opinions (on...
It would appear that large numbers of Christians are opposed to the Gospel truth of imputed righteousness, and sincerely believe that they must add their own righteousness to the righteousness of Christ (or apart from the righteousness of Christ) in order to be accepted into Heaven. Many even falsely believe that water baptism saves them.
Imputed righteousness is so foreign to human experience that if we did not have the Word of God to show us that God literally credits the righteousness of Christ to every believer’s spiritual account, none of us would believe it.
But imputed righteousness cannot be isolated from justification by grace through faith. Therefore if we believe that...
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Did you know you are dead to God and alive to God at the same time. What is dead about you is the old man, what is alive about you is Christ in you. Isn't that a simple explanation of Galatians 2:20, the moment Jesus died on the cross you died. All in Adam dead as a doornail (pardon the expression), all a believer can do now is reckon it so, and live. How do you live at that point? by the Christ that is in you. His life as your life, you see you have never had a life of your own.
You had a sin life; what is sin...
Jesus taught that our righteousness must exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees if we expect to enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
I'm convinced that Trump was selected by elites to fool the right. Are we going to be wise to the Hegelian Dialectic that has been played on the dumbed down American people? Satan appears as an angel of light we're warned - and many Christians believe that Trump is controlled opposition.
I urge everyone to read this because America's sovereignty along with our rights are being taken right before our eyes as hireling pastors fawn all over Trump and lead Christians down the wide road that leads to destruction. Far from being a Christian I believe Trump is a Judas goat.
Trump Cannot Be Anti-Globalist While Working...
Greetings brothers and sisters!
This is a subject I've been looking into for a little while now. Does this happen to everyone? I am thinking it does, at least to a certain extent. God was silent for 13 years with Abraham yet, his faith only grew stronger! Even David had his times of silence, not to mention poor Job.
It can be a very difficult thing to see His light inside our own personal darkness but, these dark times seem to be THE very time to immediately pray/praise Him!
There are many reasons, IMHO that He is silent with us sometimes (sometimes even to the point of desolation) it could be sin in our lives, or simply an opportunity to grow in faith...right smack dab through the darkest of times. Such an opportunity to...
On another thread today, I saw where someone posed that question. I would like to know myself what people do with this question. Are some things essential to everyone in order to please God or to make it the end our course with Him? Then again, just exactly do we mean when we use that word, essential?
