1Co 6:15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
1Co 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
1Co 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

Hello Fellow Sojourners,
I've been thinking....the Gospel tells us we have been given an unspeakable gift. Wow, thats a pretty tall order to get ones head around. It is so magnificent it will take eternity to unpack. As the eons roll by we will ever find things to wonder about in God's condescension of identifying with us as human and doing what nobody thought was possible......It is our immense privilege to chew on this wonder....to suck the marrow out of every morsel of light given.
Of all the theories and stories that abound of the world's religions/belief systems. Of all the fantasy and incredible lengths of ignorance over the millennia that people have indulged in various cultures and their explanations of purpose/reasons of...
Give me your best verses that support the pre-tribulation rapture. I actually know quite a lot about it having been to churches that teach the pre-tribulation rapture. As you may know I'm a post-tribulationist, I did a thread about it Guide To The Post Tribulation where I gave all my scriptural evidence in support of the post-tribulation rapture. This thread is to discuss the pre-tribulation rapture. So feel free to discuss and I'll read every post and hear it out.
Please keep it civil and NO insults it WILL BE REPORTED! We're all going to Heaven no matter which rapture we believe.
What is: the infirmity of your flesh?
Romans 6:16-23 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?  But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.  Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.  I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.  For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free...
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10
In my own experience, and from what I have seen or read about in others, "churches" ... that is in the people forming church groups [denominations, assemblies, etc.] there really is a lot of this happening, taking hold of death instead of Life.
After a person has a real special personal encounter with God that first time, which should be the beginning of a growing relationship with God in which the person begins to become like God, what often happens? Someone has already established, or in the case of a new group establishes,...
In some ways, the phrase "favorite Saint" is a bit humorous, as all the born again are "Saints".
God has no favorites , He just has those who do more for Him, and understand more from Him.
The Catholic church of course twisted this idea of "Saint" and redefined it as carnal= "famous".
This is carnal, and its not scriptural, but, in the history of the Church there have been some "famous" believers who are well worth learning about, as i find that when i read about the LIFE of someone from the Past who gave everything, gave all, to God, it helps me to to also manifest the same type of ultimate spirituality.
I'll list a few "Saints" for you, and if you are curious, then do a Wiki search, or go deeper and order a book, or do a...
Coming into the LIGHT..... is to go from wrong believing to right believing.
Is to go from walking in the flesh to walking in the Spirit.
Is to go from a failed Christian discipleship of "confessing and repenting", to , entering into perfection described by Paul as : "the fullness of the stature of Christ.".
Now, all believers, all the born again, are being transformed INTO the Image of Christ, and that final transformation is God created and the end result occurs when you get your new body.
However, "the fullness of the stature of Christ, is where we the born again are supposed to become and exits WITHIN.= while we are on the earth. And until you do, you are not completed in your spiritual understanding regarding your...
Well I was curious as to what the word Wednesday meant and so I did a google search...I found that stupid rhyme that said Wednesdays Child is full of woe....sigh anyway here is a video of a teenager sharing what each day means and how it originated...
I never knew!

Peter said that Paul was sometimes difficult to understand. I think that's because Paul used shorthand to describe things, expecting the context to explain things.
For example, when Paul mentioned "faith," he often meant "saving faith," or "faith in Christ," and relied on the context for his readers to understand that. Paul was not saying there aren't other kinds of faith, such as belief in a God or belief in God's Law.
Paul mentioned in Romans 3 that none are righteous under the Law. He expected his readers to understand that he was speaking of righteousness that leads to salvation, or to eternal life, and not discounting the fact men could be righteous under the Law.
Paul perfectly well knew and explained that those who kept the...
'It is a faithful saying:
For if we be dead with Him,
we shall also live with Him:
If we suffer (or endure), we shall also reign with Him:
if we deny Him, He also will deny us:
If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful:
He cannot deny Himself.'
(2 Timothy 2:11-13)
I just quoted 2 Timothy 2:12 in a thread I began today, which has the subject heading, 'A Better Resurrection'. As I did so I thought it was worth considering what this verse means, for it could be the cause of consternation unless properly understood.
