WARNING: This thread will contain graphic images of the beheadings Muslims practice, not only against Christians, but infidels in general, and even their own children should they choose to denounce Islam. View at your own discretion. These images will not be for the squeamish. But I am posting this thread because it will serve as a continual testimony to fact that these things are indeed going on in other parts of the world today, despite claims by the US media and elsewhere that Islam is a "religion of peace." This thread will also serve to show that Muslims will in all likelihood be those who fulfill the prophecies in Revelation regarding the beheading the saints of God.
For those Christians who find this thread offensive,...
I've noticed that younger generations have far less engagement with the churches I've attended recently. I look around and see the pews packed with older folks, but youth seem to be a rare sight. Is this a sign of the times? In a few more decades, churches are foreseeably set to lose a sizable percentage of attendees if younger generations don't engage and pick up where our parents and grandparents left off.
Are we living in the time of great apostasy spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 ?
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by...

No one can hear and watch Jack and not know they are hearing and seeing a True man of God!!! PTL.
Genesis 6:11-13 says: “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.  And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.  And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”
“...and, behold, I will destory them with the earth.”
...with the earth. What does ‘destory’ here mean because the earth is still here, yes?
 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
* GRACE -> FAITH
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
* GRACE -> FAITH -> CONFESSION
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
* GRACE -> FAITH -> CONFESSION -> works...
One thing I find missing in religions is common sense.
God gave Moses the law of 10 commandment and Moses took them to the Jewish people. They set up a religion that had men as priests. It didn’t take long for the law to become 630 laws. Fast forward and we see that the men in charge who knew the law which stated that killing someone is a sin. But they had Jesus killed. So we see, with common sense, that those in charge were not men of God.
Fast forward to today’s RCC “”AND THE OTHERS OF RELIGION ”” and we can see the same results. The religious leaders committed the sin of murder when they burned people at the stake. Somehow I can’t see Paul having people burned at a stake for not believing his gospel.
Mankind thinks that God...
Do the blacks have a right to hold a grudge for what was done to their enslaved ancestors? Let me say I have never suffered racism so maybe I don’t know. Maybe when they say they are always a target, maybe they are. But it is the mentality that “since my ancestors where treated so poorly,
it gives me a free pass (forever)to be bitter and full of hate and blame toward whites.” Whites who were not there during slavery. The same could be said for whites if they lump blacks today in with the “slave” mentality and consider them beneath the whites...always at the bottom. I ask because it has really bothered me the last couple of days on how it seems very near to: God holds a grudge(forever). How during a seven year period God will unleash His...
There are hard questions my sister asks I realize I still do not know how to answer. I did the best I can. I've heard them before.
1) Why does God send "good" people to Hell? She doesn't believe He does.
- I answered that God flooded the earth in the days of Noah, because of the wickedness in the hearts of men. This is God's justice. He promised not to flood the earth again, because He is merciful. I don't know why this came to mind, but it did, and she is conservative Jewish, so I was thinking about the OT.
I said that also in a court, if someone murders your mom and that person lists all the good things they did, would it be just for there to be no consequence?
The other hard question I was unsure to answer is:
2) what about...
Only About 10% of Today's "Church" is Preparing the People for the End Days! What judgments will result from such failure?? Aprox. 25% of the Bible is prophecy=Don't ignore God's Word!!!
Such scriptures as Romans 5:9 w/ Romans 5:1, Romans 3:25, Hebrews 9:22, Hebrews 13:12, Hebrews 10:29, and 1 John 1:7 all speak of the fact that salvation is through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.
It both justifies and sanctifies (cleanses us from all sin).
A question: When appropriated (applied to one's life), can it do one without also doing the other?
