    • A Forum Idea
      By turtletwo · Posted
      Thanks, brother. I meant to pm you, but could not find a way to send you out any messages. Don't know why? So I hope you will see this. It warms my heart to know that someone is praying for the golden oldies sub forum. Especially since so far it has not had hardly any visitors. I had so hoped for more interest. It may take much divine intervention!

      That sounds painful. Do they have any idea ( if she has gone to a doctor for this ) as to why it is not healing properly? It would be nice if they could give her something to ease her suffering. I will keep June in my prayers and could you please let us know an update on how she is doing?

      So in the last 2 weeks God has help deliver me from my porn addiction with the exception of 1 day in which I allow my mind to get focus away from God. So thank God for His grace on those other days Only thing is my mind is thinking of unfulfilled dreams and my flesh or the world or the devil is just working havoc with my thought process.  Please pray for me that God will give better thoughts because God has seem to teach me this war starts in my mind.
    • The Revelation of Jesus - The Judge & Creator. (Vision 4. ch. 21 & 22)
      By Marilyn C · Posted
        Q. So what do you see in Rev. 21 & 22 as the `new things.`   `Behold, I am making all things new.` (Rev. 21: 5)   I believe there is a specific time when God will purge & purify the heavens & the earth by fire. Then out of these cleansed elements God will reconstitute a new lower heavens & earth.     `And I saw a new heaven & a new earth, for the first heaven & the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.` (Rev. 21: 1)   It is the time when God in the highest heaven makes all things new for His sons Israel, in the New Jerusalem & Israel & the nations on earth (stars & sand – Gen.22: 17  - stars, a prominent place in the heavens but not predominant, & sand, the predominant place on earth.)   Thus the new city made by God in heaven is complete with the appointed people & so descends to its appropriate area near the earth. It is here that the nations of the world will be guided & ruled.    ` Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God,...`(Rev. 21: 2)   The New Jerusalem is thus the Administrative centre for God`s rulership through Israel over the earth. It is also the means whereby God connects & interlocks the spiritual & physical realms. The symbol of this is the `Bride,` representing this connecting & interlocking.    `Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, & He will dwell with them, & they shall be His people, & God Himself will be with them & be their God.`(Rev. 21: 2 & 3)   Here we see the fulfilment of what God had promised to Israel. (Isaiah 54) God promised to Israel that He would come & dwell with them & they would know His presence & His glory in their midst. Excluded from this wonderful life are those who have turned away from God.    `And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes;  there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, & there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”              `Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new,” And he said to me, “Write, for these words are true & faithful.” `And He said to me, “It is done!  I am the Alpha & the Omega, the Beginning & the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts he who overcomes shall inherit all things, & I will be his God & he shall be My son.    But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, & all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire & brimstone, which is the second death.”(Rev. 21: 4 – 8)   Marilyn.

      In the unveiling by God the Father, I believe the fourth vision of the Lord is -   Vision 4.    CHRIST -  JUDGE & CREATOR.  (Rev. 14 – 22)   This reveals the entitled Son of Man as the Sublime Adjudicator  `in His hand is a sharp sickle.`   `There is only one Lawgiver & Judge, the One who is able to save & to destroy.` (James 4: 12)   In Rev. 14 – 20 we have read of Christ as Judge, & now we are shown Him as creator of all things new.   So what do you see in Rev. 21 & 22 as the `new things.`   `Behold, I am making all things new.` (Rev. 21: 5)   And what does this reveal of Christ`s character?   Marilyn.

      To KPaulG: Thanks for asking. My vision problems are less, praise God! But likely still enough to require attention sometime, as God provides a place to be seen and a means of traveling there .   To OldSchool2: Thanks for stating your view (   no pun intended ) on this serious matter of ones vision being important and your belief on how to best handle it. Due to being without transportation, getting to medical appointments has not been possible.   To thereselittleflower: Thanks for your post. We don't have an urgent care clinic here. Just a regular one with limited urgent care hours. You make a valid point about one with a good reputation. Ours is quite bad. I am in a small town so only ONE local regular clinic is available. And traveling is an issue, as I mention above.   Please keep praying. Okay? I do believe the prayers of God's family here are helping. He is our Healer and meets our needs. So I know He will come through. Meanwhile, I'm beginning to improve a bit and hanging in there.

    • salvation
      By Omegaman 3.0 · Posted
      With regard to your signature theresa, not many have taken note, that we who are saved, were saved, are being saved and will be saved. Many things with God, are shown in a past, present and future sense, a continuance, an eternalness that transcends time, even his self descriptor, the tetragrammaton (YHWH), reveals this. One thing to note though for the OP, Ssavation is not of yourself, it is a gift from God, since it is a gift, the implication is that you did nothing to deserve it, if indeed you do have it. Since you did not earn it, can you un-earn it? Do you think God takes back His gifts? Think on that a while. People often assume, that if they behave badly, perhaps they will lose salvation for that reason. However, if a person is saved, their nature is changed, they are a new creation, and that nature is not inclined to continue in sin, it now seeks to do God's will. Continual failure to do God's will, the desire to continue in sin, is perhaps a sign, that salvation was not there in the first place, more than a sign of loss of salvation that one might have assumed that one possessed.
    • We ALL Have a Universal Moral Code In Us
      By LuftWaffle · Posted
      Hi Siegi91, What you're referring to there is the fallacy of composition, which says, "what's true of the part isn't necessarily true of the whole". I am familiar with this fallacy, but being an informal fallacy means that while my argument may have the form of the fallacy it isn't necessarily fallacious. Is it fallacious to conclude that oceans are wet because of the wetness of water drops? Of course not.
      So, a blanket appeal to the fallacy of composition is almost never sufficient to prove anything unless you can point me to a mechanism or some reason why the whole is different from the parts. And that's the thing: We've left the realm of science and philosophy now, because what you're appealing to here is not a scientific mechanism nor a philosophical principle, but rather the mere belief that in the dark reaches of the composition of human neurology, there must be a mysterious meaningful moral making machine that emerges from amoral matter.... I find far too often that neuroscience and quantum mechanics become a Deus ex machina for naturalism. A magic wand that'll produce what you need when you need it, even breaking laws of nature if need be, but only the as yet undiscovered parts of neuroscience and quantum physics. The stuff that we have discovered already is pretty mundane. 
      So instead of going there, why not stick with what we do know?  In terms of morality being special, remember what I said before, I don't need to prove moral objectivism, all I need to do is show that moral subjectivism is less likely. If moral subjectivism is less likely then then it is quite likely that morals are indeed special. At least special in the sense of being transcendent which I believe they are, and most people do too when they're not arguing philosophy In terms of your answer to "why I shouldn't kill you". I want you to notice something about your answer: It's all a mere description of your own brain and you concede that the brain of a psychopath will work completely differently. So you've reduced morality to statistical average, just like the professor in the "cruel logic" video did. The problem is that people aren't the same, so mere descriptions of how people are do not tell us how people OUGHT to be, and this is the big hurdle of moral subjectivism. In a brutal society where violence is average, are you willing to concede that in such a scenario being brutal is good and being gentle is bad? If not then perhaps morality isn't merely behavioural averages.
