As many are probably aware, the Democrats have a host of very poor candidates lined up for the 2020 Presidential election in the United States; old, tired insiders who will excite no one, and who will likely be soundly defeated by Trump in his quest for a second term.
But they have one candidate lurking in the shadows that would not only present very real problems for Donald Trump politically, but who would also paint his entire conservative Christian base in a very bad light, given that he claims the moral high ground.
I'm talking specifically about Pete Buttigieg, who is not only a practicing and avowed homosexual but loudly proclaims he is a Christian, and that homosexuality is condoned by scripture. He is currently the...
wondering if the church forum is an appropriate place to discuss “cursing”? This question was posted by another member in another thread and both are good questions for consideration. “You think cursing is appropriate? Clearly you are not speaking with the spirit of Christ here.”
Deuteronomy 11:26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
You think cursing is appropriate? Asked here the answer is often: yes I do. I do think cursing is appropriate. I think cursing and death is appropriate. Then Why?
Scripture teaches that Children come from Hell. That means you, I and everyone else came from there.
The question is...
How did we end up there in the first place?
Let's begin with a few relative verses in order for us to being solving this Mystery...
"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves"
In the above verse, we see Jesus Himself claiming that Children come from Hell... literally.
On top of that, Jesus seems to indicate that the Proselyte is going to have this happen to them more than one time by the use of the word...
Since I've been on this forum I noticed three types of people on here, when someone comes in and speaks the true words of God in a thread, there goes the next one trying to stop the truth from being heard or someone else comes in defending that person because what they said made them agree with that person they defend that person and go against the one who told the truth...you know what some of you people are like.... Matthew 13:19. If we gonna be real here you better speak it wholeheartedly...and not just say stuff just to be right about something..you need to make sure what you speak is with all your heart..if you are not feeling it in your soul..then that means you don't love the truth because there is no truth in you....so you try...
The book of Hebrews was written to the kingdom church, the believing remnant of Israel, undergoing persecution and scattered (Acts 8:1-4).
This book is not written directly to the church today, the body of Christ, although it is most profitable for our understanding. Misunderstanding doctrine in this book can be a snare to the believer and impact assurance of salvation.
Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
God spoke in time past unto the fathers of Israel, and the us to whom the Son has spoken to, are the children of Israel.
Or do the wicked perish instead?
● Jer 13:23a . . Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots?
The answer to both those questions is of course "no" because if an h.sapiens
is born with black skin, it stays black; and if a cat is born with spotted fur,
its stays spotted. In other words: the color of an Ethiopian's skin, and the
spots on a leopard's fur, are indelible; they're permanent.
● Jer 13:23b . . Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.
The apostle Paul said something similar in Rom 7:7-24; which is pretty much
summed up in verse 18, which reads thus:
"I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh"
The Greek word for "flesh" is sarx...
Just wondering, has anyone heard of Michael Heiser or read his books? "Unseen Realm", "Supernatural"..? He covers the Divine Council, the Nephilim, the rebellion at Babel, that sort of thing.
I've been reading some of his stuff and have found it quite interesting. Just wondering if there are any others here and what they think!
