    • y know whats hilarious.  studying thr real messages sent by classic dkngf nd realising  how sinister  some are. Then realising how ignorantly  we enjoyed them them  for years not really paying attention. Whats even funnier is pointing out these things to fans of the  genre /song/artist and hearing them  desperately  looking for any excuse to justify it. People are funny
    • I pray and plead that you do try to prayerfully understand what our friendnt is saying, it's truly worth it.....Godly wisdom, praise the Lord.  It is showing examples of times in the bible when people had peace in some wrong understanding.....and the Lord in His love and care and wisdom had to disturb their peace for their own sakes, and for His purposes and glory.  Glory to Jesus.....precious truth.
    • I am trying with examples to show that following the peace in our heart is not an indication that we follow Jesus in specific situations.    Here is an example, we know that by the time Peter was asked by the Lord to go to Cornelius house  who were. (unsircumsine Gentiles)And it was forbidden to enter a Gentiles house, and Peter has never enter or proposed to enter into one, and neither any of the disciples, because of the Law of clean and unclean, that they believe they will loose the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit will not associate with anything unclean.  So as a result Peter was deeply trouble in himself, in his heart.  And he could have guarded his heart or the peace in his heart by rebuking the Spirit that trouble his heart perceiving it as a deceiving spirit, the reason being that the Holy Spirit was guiding him in a new understanding.  It was leading him in Jesus way , a new way of Jesus having made everything clean, that the Gentiles or unclean Jews they did not need to be made clean by the Jewish customs, because the whole world was made clean by the blood of Jesus Christ, one new man in the world, no more Jew and Gentiles.   The same thing can happen to us, that time being indroduce to something new may trouble our heart, that's how we renew our mind and reprogrammed our selfs. Later when the other disciples at first heard the events of Peter entering Cornelius house, they said that Peter followed a strange spirit.   
    • Many good things mentioned here I fully agree with.  I'll mention two more. One. Each of us needs to learn to walk with God as the unique person He created us to be.   We need to each learn how prayer, Bible reading, being with other Christians, and other such things is best done at a particular time in our lives.  One of the quickest ways to frustration and burnout is simply copying what another Christian does without learning how it works best for us. Two.  Remember that the gospel has two key components.  The first is the forgiveness of sins and the establishment of a relationship with God.  The second is that God has made us a new creation that reflects the individual uniqueness He created us with.  It is not about trying hard to change through willpower and discipline.  In other words, it is not about doing something any unsaved person can do like new year's resolutions and 5 steps to accomplishing behavioral change.   It is about being transformed from the inside out by the power of God.  Good deeds and freedom from sin are something that are meant to flow naturally from us as we are changed.  They are not things we force ourselves to do so as to behave properly.   Those passages in scripture which describe the Christian life are describing what we will become  as we spiritual grow and mature; they are not a checklist to achieve or fail at based solely on our own ability to use our willpower, discipline, strength, and resolve.  There are some things we can trivially change in our lives by making better choices.  However, there are some things that can only be changed through God's power and working in our lives.
    •   Ok, let me tackle the last question..... for now, lol. You asked if we slip, are we putting the grave cloths back on.  Butero, when we slip.....or more accurately, as John said IF we slip....it is simply our taking our eyes off Jesus. When Peter climbed out of the boat and began walking to Jesus, he walked on water! But, the winds and waves kicked up.....which had zero to do with his miracle.... and he began to sink. His eyes left Jesus. As we step out in faith in the beginning, often, our faith is shaky. But as we continue to believe, even if we slip, we find our faith grows. So, no, we are not putting the  grave clothes back on. However, let’s say that we go through a period of doubt after our first slip and we assume it was all a dream and we go back to our normal routine. Sins return, we make little if any progress in being changed into His likeness. What happens then?  It would seem we do actually begin to cloth ourselves with what previously had restricted us. Our rest is interrupted. We lose the joy of our salvation and our confidence in the Lord to keep us from falling and we look less and less alive.  At this point, I want to make sure you understand that even if someone is totally wrapped in grave cloths again, he may be uncomfortable, he may be miserable, but he is still alive from the dead. Resurrected. A new creature. It is this FACT that helps us stand up again and believe! It is not when we believe hard enough that we enter in. We believe, even if our faith is minuscule, because our death and resurrection IS a fact!  Is it possible to go back to death, to lose what God has done altogether? Yes, but it is very rare. Once one has had their eyes opened, and then returns to willful sin, we are told there remains no more sacrifice for sins but a certain fearful looking for of judgment. Paul continues. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly calling to renew them again unto repentance.  I want here to make one thing clear. Christians, the wheat, the virgins with oil, even if unlit,  have,  throughout the long dry summer, still been new creations. Even if they never come into agreement with God that the old natured them is dead, they still are new. Their works, done in the flesh, might be burned up, but they are saved. They were judged based upon what they had received.  But we are entering the harvest, spurred on by the latter rain. We are about to have our eyes opened. To whom much is given, much is required.  What was acceptable for a saint in the past will not be soon. We will be given much light, and so choosing to ‘hang back with the crowd’ will put one in danger. It will be imperative that we walk in the light as He is in the light, and keep pace with what He reveals to us all.  I hope this helps. At some point, it will not be head questions being satisfactorily answered but heart hunger that drives one to the river Jordan, and decides, giants or no, to go in and take the land of promise(s). You are in my prayers and I covet yours as well.  Blessings,  Gideon

      Psalm 63 vs 1 - 4
      You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you;
      I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you,
      in a dry and parched land
      where there is no water.
      I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.
      Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
       I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.

      Thank you for answering me.  But, it seems hopeless.  This is probably the most inaccessible forum I have ever encountered.

      2 Corinthians 4:16-18 King James Version (KJV)
      16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
      17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
      18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
