have you ever known or been around someone who practices witchcraft? have u ever been the victim of it? It is real.
Here's what's interesting (scary): If it seems like those who practice it actually do have power over you, even though u are Christian, it is probably b/c they DO have power over you. There is a psg in the Bible (I've read the whole thing) that says (I believe this pertains to the Last Days) there will come a time when God will allow the anti-Christ persons of the world ("Even now, there are many anti-Christs in the world" He said) to have power over christians. That is hard to believe, but it is there.
So if you ever...
“If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.” - Charles Spurgeon
In order to keep threads on topic, I have created this thread to help channel a discussion on this subject matter. This thread will explore the role of miraculous gifts in the life of the New Testament church and discuss/debate issues such as:
1. Is the Holy Spirit still giving people these gifts?
2. Can everyone expect to have particular supernatural gifts and if so, which ones (healing, prophecy, knowledge, tongues, etc.)
3. If Christians are to have these gifts, why do some groups/denominations not have them?
4. If the Holy Spirit is no longer giving these gifts, what texts do you use to support this view?
Here are just a few areas that should be discussed on this subject. Remember, please keep the debate about doctrine and...
What do you feel are some of the most un-Christian, most worrisome things going on in this once-Christian nation? A lot of non-Christians seem to want to go on about how this nation was NOT founded on Christian principles, but i have studied some history, so they can't fool me. Jefferson wasn't a church-every-Sunday Christian but he did read the Bible and was especially interested in the Words of Jesus.
One of the Founders of this counntry said something to the effect that this nation they were creating would only work for a moral (Christian) people.
So anyway, i am sure most would agree that abortion is the most...
The media is dishonest and sometimes just out and out lies to us. Example: i'm sure you've noticed how much coverage the Trump campaign gets? If it is isn't his outrageous, devoid-of-policy comments, it's his insults of everyone who doesn't like him or agree with him. Or it's how awful his rallies are, how promoting of violence they are.
In the meantime, how many "news conferences" of the other candidates have we heard? meaning, how many have we heard that are the WHOLE thing?
i can't think of any. They just give us bits and pieces of other candidates' campaigns.
Aren't you disgusted with that?
Evangelicals are the strongest supporters of Israel, so it is particularly disturbing when a group from within their midst aligns with the Palestinians – even going so far as to support acts of violence against Jews while accusing Israel of violent crimes. Yesterday, while the conference was at its peak, five terror attacks were perpetrated against Israelis.
This was precisely what happened this...
So-called Christendom today fails to rightly divide the word of truth, because they have mixed God’s program with Israel and his program with the Body of Christ and mixed dispensations together; dispensations that do not mix together, and as a result, they think they have taken on Israel’s role from the point where Israel left off.
The programs have simply been intertwined in the minds of the religious world. Any kind of works at all, even if they appear to be good works in a our minds, that are done for the purpose attaining salvation, or for the purpose of maintaining salvation, and even for the purpose of proving our salvation is a slap in the face of God, who had to provide the gift of salvation, because our righteousness would be...
why are some things missing from the bible such as chakras, energy fields, sound, frequencies,pineal gland and things of this nature? and if not missing where are they.
i think there are many truths in the eastern beliefs. these people know all about these things in their belief system yet in the west our bible says nothing of these things. when i mention these things to other Christians they think i am crazy and call this devils work. Tibetan Buddhist devote majority of their lives to spirituality and yet most western main stream Christians spend less than one day a week, with most of our focus on our job, our money, shopping and television. this makes no sense to me.
