    Thank God For The Apostles And Their Epistles

    It is possible that modern New Testament scholars are right about the apostle Paul having written 1 Thessalonians between 49 and 51 AD during his 18-month stay in Corinth whilst on his second missionary journey. I have not so fond memories of Sunday School lessons that focused on the journeys...

    The Golden Calf

    Funny munny. Quotes from: Wkpd: Baal Baal was a title and honorific meaning 'owner' or 'lord' in the Northwest Semitic languages spoken in the Levant during antiquity. From its use among people, it came to be applied to gods. Scholars previously associated the theonym with solar cults and...

    The Golden Calf

    Look further back to Egypt. Hathor (Ancient Egyptian: ḥwt-ḥr, lit. 'House of Horus', Ancient Greek: Ἁθώρ Hathōr, Coptic: ϩⲁⲑⲱⲣ, Meroitic: ‎ Atri/Atari) was a major goddess in ancient Egyptian religion who played a wide variety of roles. Hathor was often depicted as a cow, symbolizing her...

    How Did Christ Preach to the Dead if the Dead Have no Knowledge?

    From My Notes: Against Christ Preaching To The Dead The reference to Jesus preaching is not to be construed as taking place after His death, but rather the "quickening" of His Spirit in Noah so as to preach through him to those who because of their unbelief are now in Hades, that is "prison"...

    Wouldn't it just be easier if we were all let out and then asked what we wanted to do

    Sheep are not totally stupid, but they are pretty helpless which is why they need a shepherd. See Psalm 23. Green pastures and still waters . . . LOVIN' IT!

    Missing the move of God - great theme for you to ponder, dear Apache1.

    The " FLIP" side of "Does God care"

    Lovingly Trained By Tough Love Heb 12:4-11 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood. (5) And you have forgotten the exhortation that addresses you as sons: “My son, do not take lightly the discipline of the Lord, and do not lose heart when...

    You know who I can't stand?? --->Wynona

    My approach is to work with the medium we have here rather than against it. Some use social media to dominate, intimidate, manipulate, or seduce, so for them it's about controlling the narrative rather than contributing to it. Be blessed.

    How can any of you stand it

    Good post @CadyandZoe Various forms of that analogy have been around for a long time, and one has stayed with me since the first time I heard a preacher use it as an illustration of missing the move of God. 1Co 1:27-31 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the...

    How can any of you stand it

    Because it's the enemy causing your problems, not God, and when you praise God and thank Him for EVERYTHING it neutralises the enemy. Some Homework For You: Rom 5:1-8 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, (2) through...

    How can any of you stand it

    If you put God's blessings first every day and praise Him regardless of your problems it will improve your quality of life. What a friend we have in Jesus.

    Hillsong (Hellsong) Megachurch Exposed (TLC Series)

    Formality, pageantry, and ritual does pass for reverence in some quarters, as does silence among Quakers, and raising hands, vocalising, and clapping in some evangelical gatherings.

    How can any of you stand it

    Deprivation is a predator that Christians can evade. Rather than catastrophising about the lack of prosperity, Habakkuk trusts God to help him rise above the unfortunate circumstances that might otherwise overwhelm him. Jesus also taught to seek His Kingdom before all else, The Apostle Paul...

    I Have question

    Hi @muslimhastamstudy I hope you will reflect on a very important aspect of the offering up of Isaac by Abraham, namely that God provided a ram so that Isaac could go free. The parallel to this is that God provided His Son Jesus Christ to be sacrificed in atonement for our sin so that we...

    From the pen of Ellen White

    I'd be more concerned about the consequences of ignoring this Scripture: Col 2:16-17 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, (17) which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.

    From the pen of Ellen White

    I already know that one. We got an SDA comic in the letterbox that ranted about the mark of the beast being the observance of Sunday worship. Fortunately for those who rest in Christ, He is their Sabbath. Heb 8:6-7 But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also...

    You list as Christian, so why does Christian Education not appeal to you?

    Do you guys think that Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is mostly positive or negative for humankind?

    I have to chuckle. The In-person Bible Study Groups I have attended in recent years mostly use Smartphones all the way through to access everything from Scriptures, commentaries, websites, videos, hymns, and sermons, to fact-checking and nit-picking searches. Using Chatbots in a Bible Study...

    What do you think of Christians who don't observe the Saturday Sabbath?
