  1. The Congressional Prayer Caucus

    Hello, everyone! Did everybody but me know that the US House of Representatives has a Congressional Prayer Caucus? I only found out this week, myself. There are currently just a handful of members. A good thing about their website is an option to contact them. As Christians who have been commanded to pray for our leaders, we ought to keep this small band of praying politicians in our prayers.
  2. tHANK FOR THAT REASON . But wouldn't you think that is a shame to the gospel and to the church as such?? We are not to be ashamed of the gospel I thought? Yes, I think that it is a shame to the gospel and to the church. It will also result in consequences at some point. What those concequences will be, I'm not sure.
  3. Hello, man! Not to avoid your question but 'll leave the salvation matter to the Lord. I used the term "saved church" in order to differinciate it from the "spiritually dead church" or apostate church. I probably could have said it better. Thanks for your input.
  4. Friends when they criticise you.

    You have had some very good advice, my friend, and I only have one suggestion. When anyone does you wrong, always pray for them and that God will bless them. I know it doesn't sound right but it does work!
  5. I need Advice

    You have received some excellent advice. Please continue to pray. If I may make a small observation, some people need to hit bottom with the realization of where they are before they can start making progress to a sober life. Has it occured to you that God may already be dealing with your friend? May I suggest that you may need to get out of the way and let God handle her. I do know that it is easier said than done!
  6. Are you ready ?

    This is also the reason I try to stay in a right relationship with my wife, children, family and fiends.
  7. May I suggest that one reason people think Muslims have the same God as Christians lies at the feet of both the leadership and layity of the saved church. Those who know better and are in a position of influence refuse to speak out and declare the truth. Whether this is because of a fear of offending someone or the result of intimidation or an effortt to be polictically correct, I don't know.

    WOW ! I am so dizzy. I just finished reading the entire 12 pages of this thread. I'm not sure whether I agree with some parts of what everybody has said or if I disagree with most of what everybody has said. All I know for sure is that as long as I pray for wisdom and understanding from our Father when I open the Bible and let the Bible interpret the Bible, I am well served. As I read the book of Revelation, I also read the books of Daniel, Ezekiel and Zechariah.
  9. Does God exist

    Hi, iwknowledge: If I might make one observation, it is evident that you enjoy the open road on your motorcycle. If you are like the bikers I know, you probably do some of your best thinking astride your cycle. So, who says you cannot pray while you ride? I would hesitate to close my eyes while riding! Posture is not the important issue -- heart attitude is the issue.
  10. Jehovah's Witnesses IS a cult!!!

    Hi! Yes, it is true that Jehovah's Witnesses are in a cult. However, broadsideing them with all twenty-one guns at the same time is probably not the wisest approach. Such passion as demonstrated by Coral Snake is, in my experience, usually associated with someone who has either had first-hand exposure to the teaching in question or has had a loved one involved in such teaching. And, who can blame them? After all, they have been deceived and have experienced the results of such deception. May I also add that we have all, at one time or another, been deceived. Personally, I almost always invite JW's in for a discussion. Before they leave I always ask them about John 1:1. They seem to have no answer. They seldom come back, much to my regret. So, I try to get them thinking for themselves by presenting inconsistantcies in their own teachings. Also, I add their names to my prayer list. After all, it is only God who can save them.
  11. Does God exist

    Dear Guest Will: I can relate to some of what you are saying. I went through an extended pseudo-intellectual time in my life. If I may be so bold as to ask a question and then make a suggestion: Have you gone to God in prayer and told Him just what you have told us? If not, try it! It also sounds like this is a problem you need to settle for certainty within yourself before you stand in the position of a teacher before others, no matter how good it feels. It was only after I went to God in some very honest and frank discussions that I was able to understand what God was trying to get through my thick skull. Please feel free to discuss your progress here. We love you in Christ and sincerely want the best for you.
