Be careful what you put a saddle on. You might not be able to ride it. I watched a wonderful church go down the tube once. It was an UGLY, SAD experience. It was a spirit filled Holy Spirit church and where my wife and I went right after getting saved then baptized in the Holy Spirit. There were deliverances, salvations, helps, encouragements, gifts of the spirit operating, street ministries. A cornucopia of the love of God flowing onto the needy like me and many many others.
But the church leaders took their eyes off Jesus and put them on the so called prosperity message. The "God wants us all to be millionaires" fairy tale. The spirit of the Lord ever so slowly drained...
God said Let us make man in our image Genesis 1:26 What is He talking about. Why are we in these flesh body's. The teachings of man would have you believe the Earth was created 6,000 years ago and that man was created at that time. It doesn't matter what verses you quote. That's what man has been tough.
and so that makes it correct. What does God mean in Genesis 1:28 when he says REPLENISH the Earth. Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. What doe's that verse mean? If you understand the word of God. He's telling you of our PREXEISTANCE . There are other verses in the word of God. The book of Job 1:6-7...
OUR ARK: (the “in Christ” doctrine)
2 Cor 1:19-22
19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us-- by me, Silvanus, and Timothy-- was not Yes and No, but in Him was Yes.
20 For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.
21 Now He who establishes us with you ""in Christ"" and has anointed us is God,
22 who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
I look at the words ""in Christ"" and think of them in reference to Noah and the flood.
Noah was told by God to build an Ark. It was built by human hands (Noah’s hands). The waters of God‘s wrath in the flood did not touch Noah and those with him. Noah, by his choice, obeyed...
when born into the world we are made to believe, this that and the other about anything known or unknown to man, that can occupy the thoughts of man, but the Lord our God is what to believe, is what to know, and is what is to occupy our thoughts every day, if this were not true then why would Jesus say that the Father's work is to believe, believe on Him who He had sent? and Him who He had sent is Jesus Christ the Word of God made flesh. the Truth of God come into the flesh, or Son of man, the condemned. the Son of man was condemned to death was He not? do we not declare the Cross?
so, it was the condemned who condemned the sinless man (Son of man), but the same sinless man (Son of man) condemned no one. therefore, who has the right to...
So what would be the best way to tackle the problems with North Korea? In my opinion war is not the answer, a lot of people make it sound simple and say if there's a war it would be over in 2 seconds, but it's not as simple as what a lot think, what about all the innocent lives in North Korea, those who are starving, those who are suffering persecution, they don't deserve to be blown up just because of some extreme corrupt government, laws and military. So if the west was to declare war with North Korea, they would have to go about it pretty carefully, to prevent many innocent North Korean lives being lost.
So what should be done? What I believe should be done? Well 1st and for most, it's important we pray, and when i say that, don't...
I find my spirit agitated whenever I see a video of a baby being "baptized". That is being sprinkled with water or a water pistol filled with Holy water or some other method. Unless the baby has a good bath out of the ordeal the entire affair has been an exercise in spiritual futility. Babies are tiny little things but the error of calling their sprinkling a baptism is not tiny but large. It's only one thorn on the thornbush of dead religion.
Mark 16:16 (NKJV)
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
First you have to believe. I'd be greatly amazed should an infant believe let alone be able to express that belief.
Supposedly mature men in the glamorous robes of their office doing...
So as the title says there are many in here who treat people who do not believe in God as the enemy. That is not what we are told to do by Christ. The guy tripp came in and was attacked by Christians. I seen another thread that was three years old being revived and it was exactly the same. The guy asked a question and ver few addressd his question but rather attacked his belief. Can any one give me the scriptures that qualify you to attack someone who does not believe in God?
