    You don't have to like someone, to be kind to them; and you don't have to keep being kind, to be liked (selah)

    Hi there, So the Lord inspired a brilliant quote, in me - and I'm dying to share! You know the Golden Rule, right? What about the Golden proverb? What do you think? Is there longevity in these words? Do they agree with your soul? The power of it, is that this proverb looks at the Golden Rule...

    Here's a likeable thread: Name something you like about a denomination (of Church) other than your own! (really, anything)

    Hi there, So this was a popular thread, back when I was posting on another board: Name something you like about a denomination (of Church) other than your own! I would post something myself, but I don't want to prejudice others' ideas. Are they (the other Churches) pro-active? Organized...

    Not requiring confession and just offering luck as an alternative, men of the world will just choose 'luck' and not confess. Meaning?

    Hi there, So this is a thorny problem for me. I have known for some time that Ray Comfort preaches that the sinner needs to be convicted of the Law, before they are offered Salvation. That approach seemed fine to me, for some time, but I never really felt great about approaching people about...

    Truth needs truth, that's the truth. (thoughts?)

    Hi there, So there is an absolute gem of a truth, in the Bible. Jesus says "I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father, but by Me" (from memory, John). The reason that this truth is a gem, is that it hits on the notion of relationship, in a way that no other words do. You...

    Freedom of selection: does it really boil down to 'tolerance'?

    Hi there, So I realised there is a glaring inequality, between government and people of faith: the standard for government is that difference matters, the standard for people of faith, is that difference doesn't matter! Let me explain what I mean. Say you have a transgender person, and you...

    After the Rapture, comes revival of the Rapture (think?)

    Hi there, So I feel like this is a simple point to make, but perhaps there is more to it: after the Rapture, comes revivals of the Rapture. This is something even a child (who has come to maturity) could understand. The purpose of the Rapture is not to come and go and never come again. Rather...

    If you have read the book of Revelation, and not understood something, you have read wisely (thoughts?)

    Hi there, So the book of Revelation, was the first book of the Bible that I ever read (in its entirety) and I have stayed avidly mindful of what I have read there, ever since. But something has dawned on me, over the years (decades now), there really is no accounting, for the mystery of the...

    There is no constant witness to Jesus, but one immersive mystery in the gospel (Discuss)

    Hi there, So there is a pitfall, when it comes to the faith, that if you believe it (the faith), then there will be some concrete way to witness to it. Jesus on the cross, is a constant, so the theory goes, there must be some constant way to witness to Him. That is not so. Why is it not so...

    The anti-Christ will be beguiled, by the Devil's guilt: that he (the Devil) has no further accusation, for those who take the mark - it can't be true!

    Hi there, So just to be clear, there is almost no time left. The world awaits the coming of the anti-Christ. The Devil is ready to feign worship of the anti-Christ. But there is a problem: no matter how much the Devil worships the anti-Christ, there is no way for him (the Devil) to stop...

    The Devil is quick to leave Heaven, but gradually he loses the strength (selah)

    Hi there, So just a little thing to edify you with: the Devil has limitations. This is meant to encourage you; if you can resist the Devil, even more and more, you can be delivered of the suffering of this world. So what limitations does the Devil have? Primarily, he is impatient. God says in...

    The Devil is against you, being on this Earth!

    Hi there, So as if you needed to know, when you already believe we are called to be in the world but not of the world: the Devil doesn't want you here! The whole problem of original sin, is that we have come into conflict with Creation, when we should have been serving it, under the Mighty...

    Enough of the Work that the Holy Spirit has started, will be greatly compelling (selah)

    Hi there, So I have been wrestling with faith, and how to have it, Evolution and how to resist it, and the Lord encouraged me to a point, where I think I understand. What I understand, is that if you believe in Evolution, more is required of you - why is more required, because greater faith has...

    Is there even one thing, that would provoke humanoids to come from other species? Where's the selection pressure, that created Man, and nothing else?

    Hi there, So there is a glaring absence in the world of Evolution: a selection pressure of some description, had a consistent effect on some monkeys, at some stage and humanoid creatures developed from that pressure. However, it did not happen again, nor did it happen to other species, nor did...

    You are going to feel awful about your sin, for the rest of your life - why not let the Holy Spirit make you feel good about the afterlife?

    Hi there, So I have sort of turned inside out, pursuing faith. I was vexed for a long time, about my sin and how to overcome it. At times I would feel fine, then at others I would be vexed; then I would feel like "I have to do something about this 'feeling'!". Eventually, thinking about the Law...

    I am itching, Lord have mercy

    Hi there, Ok so this is something that I am struggling with, but I am almost completely certain that it will be of relevance to others, if not of faith then of the world: I am itching. I am itching to get recognition, I am itching to get prophetic vision, I am itching to have power to heal, I...

    The more benign a mutation, the easier and lighter it is to adapt (selah)

    Hi there, So there is a simple truth that I think if you have argued with Evolution at all, you are going to like. It is about addressing the orientation towards change, that is, what the motivation is. As it stands, Evolution is about the subjection of the body to pressure lived out through...

    If they tell you that you will never get well, hand them over to the Devil permanently - that they learn not to persecute your mental health

    Hi there, So yes, to be plain, there is a way for a psychiatrist to keep you scrambling for self defence: use conceit. What is the conceit that they use? For starters, that they are the psychiatrist, not you; secondly, that there is no reason for them to change their diagnosis, if what you do...

    How to respond to the idea, that Christ is being slowed down, by a believer? Like how would you respond to the guilt, that your work is unfinished?

    Hi there, So something you may not know about me, but I have a habit of mulling questions of the faith, over in my mind. I basically do a stress test "do I believe enough?" "how would I express that faith differently?" I want a tight, easy to grasp relationship with God, with Jesus. But I was...

    Physical addiction: two metaphors about proper physical conduct (as concerns desire).

    Hi there! So after a little discussion with the staff at this site, it has been decided that if I can keep the dialogue clean, instruction in self-care (physically) is permissible. Now I can't tell you in detail, how it is that you should care for yourself, but I can point out wisdom, that...

    Prayer against lawlessness (our times need it)

    Hi there, So I am concerned about developments in the spiritual world. The Devil is preparing to ensnare men to the pit, and they don't have faith. The Devil wants to be condemned with men, but without faith. The faith is the crucial thing, because without it the spirit dies. Jesus foretold...
