Sign no. 6: Self-righteous people list their good works
Have you ever noticed how hard it is for us to forget the good things we have done to other people? Every time we do something good, we have this little notepad in our brain where we list all our good deeds. Afterward, we add them all up and show ourselves and others how righteous we are!
When we do this, we forget that our righteousness is just like FILTHY RUGS (Isaiah 64:6). Our righteousness pales down to nothing when compared to the righteousness of God.
In reality, it is not our job to list our good deeds. It is God’s. “For God is not unrighteous to forget [our] work and labor of...
I asked this question of our pastor who teaches bible study and he said no, yet they're in the Bible. At one time or another I'm sure we've all felt what David did. Are we to not pray them and just silently wait for God to administer justice - or should we actively entreat God to bring justice on evil individuals? This is something to consider as our country and world grow ever darker.
I'd like to know others' thoughts on this.
A Fundamentalist worst nightmare...confessing their sin in the light. (In public)
Fundamentalist will not dare bring their sins into the light! The rest of us will! There is a lot of self-righteous fundamentalist on the Christianity Boards. I love you all, but you are in error...you value the Law over the Love of Christ. For all those who do not claim to be fundamentalist and instead worship the love of God, his mercy, his grace and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, post something you are guilty of. This post is for Christians only. I'm not scared in the least to bring my sins into the light. Only Fundamentalist do not do that. Don't keep your sins in darkness where the evil one will get a foothold.
Ps. Watch the fundamentalist, they will start...
I woke up the other morning and my morning routine usually goes with a little prayer and then I get spiritually dressed for battle. The spiritual belt of truth is my first defensive weapon I put on and then I grab my breastplate, shoes, shield, helmet and sword, all of the spirit.
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
I went out to mow the grass in our yard. It usually takes about 2 hours. Half way through, there was this dark cloud of emotions that had been building up and came upon me. There were a few tears. Sometimes, I like to drink a beer or 2...
ALL SCRIPTURES ARE FROM THE NKJV of the Bible.
When the scripture said to "not forsake the assembling ourselves together," why do most assume it is in the formal religious services in a church building?
25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Why can't it be referring to Sunday school classes, Bible study classes, Bible study in the homes, or even home churches? It is a fact that the NT scriptures do not tell us what we are to do when we gather together except as written in the scripture above (exhorting one another) and to worship God. But I doubt very seriously that we are to worship God by the...
The next Prophesied event that the world will experience will be the Sixth Seal. Revelation 6:12-17 Proved by how the first Five Seals were opened at Jesus’ Ascent to heaven. Revelation 6:1-11 All those things have happened, we have experienced wars, famines, plagues and economic disasters aplenty. Any more of those and humankind would have been wiped out.
The Sixth Seal worldwide disaster, of cosmic and earthly events; graphically prophesied in the Bible over 100 times, will cause the earth to shudder and shake, and move out of her place....Isaiah 13:13, Isaiah 24:19-20, Revelation 6:14
It will be just a one Day event, as the Coronal Mass Ejection explosion of the suns surface, that the Lord will instigate, Isaiah 30:26a,...
We’re talking about obedience to Jesus’ teachings and commands!
Continuing obedience is what “being faithful” means!
“… only we who believe can enter His rest … but those who first heard this good news
failed to enter because they disobeyed God.” (Hebrews 4:3, 7)
Disobedience proves Unbelief --- Unbelief causes Disobedience
“And to whom was God speaking when he took an oath that they would never enter His rest? Wasn’t it the people who disobeyed him? So we see that because of their unbelief they were not able to enter his rest … so we ought to tremble with fear that some of you might fail to experience it … IF we disobey God … we will fall.” (Hebrews...
But the sin that lives in me.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
So when Paul writes, It is no more I that do it (evil, that is), but sins that lives in me,
What exactly is he saying here?
