    • A different post-trib / pre-wrath interpretation
      By ghtan · Posted
      Yes, it is possible to read all that as one event - and many do - but Luke helps us by expanding Mk 13:24 (=Mt 24:29) into Lk 21:25-26 and thus clarifies that it actually refers to a whole series of (end-time) events. Therefore, Luke can say in 21:28 "when these things BEGIN to take place..." It is also noteworthy that he does not say "BEFORE these things begin to take place..." as that would suggest a pre-trib rapture.   
    • Isn't there something wrong with mankind?
      By thereselittleflower · Posted
      Do you claim you can hear the Holy Spirit clearly and perfectly and without error in your understanding of what the Holy Spirit is telling you? Do you claim infallibility in understanding the Holy Spirit for yourself?   Such a claim would be preposterous for you to make personally. And so yes it should be quite clear why the claim is being made that fallible human beings cannot hear the Holy Spirit well on their own - because they are fallible. Yet these same fallible human beings seem to think their personal interpretation of scripture on their own is without error, while failing to realize how this contradicts their claim to be falilble.   Their claim to be able to personally interpret scripture corectly on their own, to properly understand the Holy Spirit correctly on their own, is thus manifestly illogical to its core.

      Well then if you can't say yes, then the answer is simple.   This is not a hard question.   Either you can interpret scripture correctly on your own or you can't.     If you can, that would make you infallible.   If you claimed to be infallible, that would create a problem, for none of us are infallible, and you would then obviously be delusional.   So since you do not and cannot claim infallibility, you cannot claim to be able to interpret scripture correctly on your own. Since you cannot answer "yes", then the answer can only be no, and then you  make my point for me even though you have done  your best to evade this admission.  
    • Result of divisions between Christians.

      Shiloh, there is no scriptural example of ANYONE committing this sin. And yes, blasphemy of the Holy Spirit cannot happen accident.  One who commits this sin is completely aware of what they are doing.       All else you have said about it is complete conjecture.  Nothing more.      
    • How to give a Donald Trump speech in 12 easy steps
      By thereselittleflower · Posted
      Racism is hatred, and he runs his platform powered by racist claims and attitudes, blaming a race for America's problems - no  matter how you slice it, his platform is one of hatred no matter how he tries to couch it in other terms.
    • How to give a Donald Trump speech in 12 easy steps
      By thereselittleflower · Posted
      His manner is hateful. His attitude his hateful. He appeals to anger and hate in others.   Such a man is a dangerous man to give the power of the presidency to and make Commander in Chief over our armed forces.      
    • Divine love
      By thereselittleflower · Posted
      Jeff said something I very much agree with. Love, agape love, is not a feeling. it is a choice to love the other so completely that one wants nothing other than the good of the other, with no thought for themselves. This is not an emotion. It is a choice.  it is an act of the will.

        My dear, dear bopeep, You have entirely misread what was happening with Mother Theresa. Jesus appeared to Mother Theresa as a girl while on a train, gave her her ministry to the poor and suffering and rejected, which she strove to start immediately. Has Jesus appeared to you? Hers was a "dark" faith, a stark faith, that in the absence of consolations from God persisted,  This is a true faith, a faith that continues despite what one can perceive.   This is the truest faith of all.   When God is so close to a soul as He was to Mother Theresa, the brilliance of God blinds the soul to any sense of His presence.     It would be as if you were suddenly surrounded by the brightest of light and were blinded.  Your sense would be that of darkness while you were in actuality bathed in such brilliant light. The proof of all this is her life of selflessness in service to others.    What those you follow did not include, was that after 50 years of walking with God in selfless love for others in this dark, stark, blind faith, God withdrew just enough to allow her to once again to sense the consolations of His presence, and gave her  consolations so sweet, so wonderful, they were overwhelming.   I am very worried for you, for in your ignorance, you are following those who have taken something very precious, a rare gift of God to a soul,  and made something evil of it. Be careful bopeep -  this is much like what the pharisees did when they accused Jesus of casting out demons by the power of the devil, calling what was of the Holy Spirit to be of the devil. In your ignorance, you are following those who  talk about things they do not begin to comprehend.   Consolations are not a sign of spiritual maturity or rightness with God.  They are the sign of immaturity, of one who cannot tolerate strong food,  for one is given consolations when one is as a baby which is given consolations at its mother's breast.   Beware using such experiences to judge the faith of another, for  consolations are never the measure of a christian.
