I think knowing a little bit helps in evangelism purposes, as well as helping with not being deceived. I have to blow it up on my phone, but looks pretty detailed. Good guide. There was a really good book I read in the past that went into detail on different religions from a Christian view. It was really good. Ill have to try and look it up.

If you are born again, and are having trouble with self control, ... with sinning and confessing, then there is a reason.
If you are a born again believer who lives right for a while, then you mess up, then you go again for a while, and you mess up and REPEAT.
And then its been 5 yrs, 10yrs, 40yrs, ........ just .....like....that.
You never quite got there, you never quite made it to the place of perfected discipleship, or as Paul says...>"as many as are Perfect".. "the fullness of the stature of Christ"..
And that, is not referring to after you die.
So, why didnt you make it yet after so many years??
Whats the prob?
The main reason is, because you are doing it backwards, and that produces a fail.
Saint....How do you perform...
Yes, Jesus had individually focused love upon Apostle John, Lazarus, sisters Mary and Martha. No apparent others. God never stated He individually loved any of His Prophets.
God states He "So loved the World." Jesus loved His Disciples as a group, but nowhere does Jesus verbally state to an individual He loves them. Jesus loves only corporately.
As well, God's Love is conditional. Psalm 146:8, "The Lord loveth the righteous." Sinners are not righteous.
I am curious what you think about going to a professional cuddling therapy session? I am a single guy and live and work mostly alone especially now that I work from home due to Covid. Often I am very lonely. Someone recently recommended cuddle therapy as a way to reduce loneliness and boost my morale. There are a few single ladies in my area who do professional cuddling and I am seriously considering scheduling a 1-2 hour cuddle session with one of them. The rules are that it is a strictly clothes on and platonic cuddling session with no kissing or sexual touching. I am really intrigued and would like to try it out but I’m a bit uncertain about the morality of this.
I am curious what your thoughts are on this? Is this a sin? Is it...
For our good news did not come to you in word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit, and in great assurance, just as you know what type of men we were among you for your sakes. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word with the joy of the Holy Spirit amidst great tribulation, so that you became examples to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. For from you the word of the Lord rang out not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but even in every place where your faith towards God has reached to, such that there is no need for us to have to say anything. For they themselves relate concerning us what entrance we had unto you, and how you turned to God from idols to serve the True and Living God, and...
The World is breathing a sigh of relief as hundreds of millions of vaccines have been given and millions a day are getting the vaccine.
America has almost 50 million people who have received at least the first dose. But make no mistake the uppercut punch is still to be dealt with.
1.To date in America 125,000 restaurants have closed permanently
2. 3,000 hotels are gone
3. Tens of thousands of small businesses have shut their doors for godd as well.
4. Malls are struggling as more and more anchor stores leave and go bankrupt.
5. Vacation destinations are still reeling from the pandemic reduced visitors
6. The moratorium on evictions and foreclosures ends next month. Americans and businesses are currently over $100 billion in arrears...
Cause I'm sort of confused about this. Anybody and everybody who isn't Jesus sins,.. but yet since we are all saved by grace and the blood of Christ, does that mean we can't actually be called sinners since God no longer looks at our sin? Then again, we still need to repent whenever we do sin so which is it? Since murders are still murders even if they've felt remorse for it and have been forgiven for it afterwards.
I didn't think this fit in Bible study. But I did want to open a thread to discuss the differences in translations of word for word versus word for thought Bibles, and how to identify when the meaning is changed. I believe the best translation is the one a person applies. But at the same time, it is also a slow fade.
My thing with KJV, is I was raised on it, and I do find it accurate in teaching. My thought though, is even when the people spoke in Hebrew and Greek, it didn't mean "Thee and Thou." It was translated first in the 1600s. I personally like NASB as a good Word for Word translation.
If the Bible changes in meaning though, from even these Word for Words, I would really like some examples and to learn how to identify these...
