It is plain and simple and right to the point
and there are NO exceptions no matter what whatsoever at all.
The doctrine of Christ is the only Salvation of God.
1 Timothy 4:16
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them:
for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself,
and them that hear thee.
Ask yourself this question.
What is this doctrine that you can save not only your own self
but others that will hear you?
2 John 1:9
and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.
He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ,
he hath both the Father
and the Son.
The doctrine of Christ is the only way the only truth and the only life
that will save you from being in...
The Narrow and Wide Gates (NIV)
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it (HELL). 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.(very few are going to Heaven)
The above scripture is what I'm presently Meditating on.
It makes me sad and want to go out to the West Side of Town (I would be shot or locked up) and shout "NOW IS THE TIME FOR REPENTANCE, JESUS LOVES YOU!"
"THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN HAS COME NEAR!" MATT. 3:2
If I was ever in control of the way I would leave this world, this would be the way. I would go out of...
Jeremiah 33:17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;
2 Samuel 7:16 And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.
David was told of God that his kingdom and throne would be established forever.
Deuteronomy 15:6 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.
God has promised Israel will reign over many nations.
Daniel 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion...
I have seen several amazing prayers answered so I know without a doubt that God hears. Yet there are prayers that have gone unanswered that deeply trouble me. I pray and pray and nothing changes / I get no inner peach about specific things and I search for why yet cannot get to a place of peace about certain unanswered prayers.
There was a lawyer in our town who claimed to be a Christian. He was a hypocrite and felt that he was entitled to trash others' family members. What is so egregious is that his own son was the town drug dealer. The lawyer represented all the teens in town who got caught with the drugs that his son sold to them...and of course you know that his son was never caught...or he was caught and it was fixed by his...
I've watched the police state become increasingly implemented towards a replica of Communist China. What concerns me is that many Christians are so enamored of Donald Trump that they're missing the fact that he's continuing all the same policies of his predecessors and greatly expanding a police state that rivals Nazi Germany. What happened to the warnings in Scripture that Satan appears as an angel of light?
I began reading reports that those who believe in Armageddon/ the End times are thought of as possible right wing dangers. Here is one such article I read this morning:
Political Theater: Trump vs. The Left &...
My husband and 4 kids moved to a small town in Tennessee a few years ago. We had always attended Calvary Chapel but none here. We have tried a bunch of churches but they always reject me because I was not baptized properly.
I was born to parents that actively hated the church God, Jesus w extreme passion. I can say that I was born to love Christ. Even as a tiny girl, I can remember secretly reading my bible. I contribute this to a praying MIL but another story...my dad was very violent, like a trip to the ICU at age 3 violent. I was baptized at 15 at a football game by sprinkle and I really was putting myself in a lot of danger doing that.
Fast forward 30 years..everytime we try to join a church, they say I need to be baptized....
Was recently speaking with someone about red lights and green lights. I see how God gave Moses a green light to go up on the mountain. The rest of the people had a red light ((do not go up on the mountain or even touch it, (which, incidentally reminds me of eves words to Satan about the fruit), or they will die.)) BUT, there was also to be a green light for the people: however, when the rams horn sounds a long blast, THEN the people may go up on the mountain.
So...I'm confused as to why they didn't go up the mountain when they had the green light of the long blast...is it my translation I wonder?

I write about the presentation of the Gospel here.
I have been to many churches that have altar calls, or nowadays challenge people to pray at their seats. What seems to be the norm is to follow the script below:
- Preach a sermon that is not really salvation-focused.
- Do not explain to the audience Who God is.
- Do not explain to the audience Who Jesus is.
- Maybe, or maybe not mention that Jesus died on the cross. Do not discuss the atonement.
- Do not tell the audience that God raised Jesus from the dead.
- Tell the audience that religion is bad, and that they do not need religion.
- Tell the audience that they need a personal relationship with God or tell them they need a personal...
