    To put it simply, there's too much passive-aggressiveness within debates. I've only started two of them, and all I really see is a bunch of passive-aggressive speech against each other. This is not how we treat brothers and sisters in Christ. If someone has the wrong idea of Scripture, first you need to double-check your own stance and why you hold that stance (because you're only human just like them, and you could very well be the one that's wrong if you aren't careful), and second you need to try to lead them to the truth WITH LOVE. I don't see that. I see pride. I don't hate any of you, and I'm not judging any of you. Not everyone here is guilty of this, either. But there's just too much of this going around, and this site isn't quite the spiritual edifier I first thought it would be. I'll be praying for all of you, and I ask that you pray for me as well. I'm still learning about God and the doctrines of the Bible, and I think I'll continue to learn until the day I die. Prayer would be much appreciated for this, since I tend to get very confused when trying to figure out which doctrines to believe. I guess I just need to learn to leave it in God's hands to help me, instead of trying to do it all myself. God bless

    Blessings groubndzero Welcome to Worthy,you ask us how y ou can talk to 'our God"......yes,He is OUR God & that includes YOU.......our God is our Heavenly Father,we have been RECONCILED back to Him by His Grace through our Faith the knowledge of WHO Jesus IS,He is God the Son,our Lord,Savior,our Living Redeemer At the Foot of the cross is where we came to Jesus ,HE forgave our sin & through Him we come to the Father.... Success? ABSOLUTELY! A reply? NO DOUBT!Talk to God? MOST ASSUREDLY!! There is ONE catch,you mmust have an earnest heart & by that I am saying you have to mean it .....You see,the Lord God knows your heart,you can tell me anything & I cannot see you from the inside out,He does.....if you are sincerely seeking God I tell you that HE WILL Reveal Himself to you in Christ Jesus,God the SON I am not too sure what you mean by "a satisfactory reply",lol God is the King of kings,Lord of lords-He does not reply to meet your requirements but to Save your wretched soul simply because He Loves YOU......just like He did mine & Heb Loves me........have you ever read the Word of God? What do you believe,who do you think God is?Have you ever heard the Gospel,the Good News? With love-in Christ,Kwik

    I much rather prefer 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found naked. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life. Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

    I'm locking this thread because it has long since ran its course. However, I think it is a good OP and the exposure of some of the ridiculousness that is out there is the main reason I am locking the thread, but not deleting it. Without getting specific, I think that some of the claims you see made in this thread illustrate the importance of sticking to the scripture first and foremost, and elucidate how easy it is to end up down rabbit holes with absolutely no end in sight in search of knowledge that we don't need in the first place. The truth of the matter is that we simply don't need to know adam and eve's full and complete life story. I can be assured of this fact because if we absolutely needed to know about it, i am confident that God would've provided it to us in the scripture. God has left us everything we need in the scriptures themselves. "Recovered" lost books are incredibly notorious for being fraudulent and one needs to be incredibly careful in their approach to such things. Otherwise, I'm not against looking at general extra-biblical historical sources or anything such as that, but it needs to be done with the idea that human records and observations are fallible, while God is not. Mat 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.

    Hi all, I joined this forum expecting to find a place where Christians support each other and to have positive fellowship and grow in my faith. I have found it to be a place to debate and argue the Word of God which is unbiblical. I've seen people who claim to be Christians tearing each other apart over simple doctrines that don't effect our salvation. I will continue to pray for this forum to be what God intended it to be and for the admins who run it but I just can't contribute to it anymore. In some ways it has hurt my faith more than helped it. God bless you all. I will still check now and then for any replies and answer any questions (within reason).

    I feel like I should be able to just pray for myself but I think I need help. Is that wrong? I hope not. I have multiple problems but then I get anxiety that overwhelms me. I'm also always all alone and that makes things worse. So if you feel the urge to pray for me please do. I know prayer helps.

    A lot of people seem to be leaving the site for similar reasons. People don't take this site for the opportunity that it provides, a place of edifying and being edified in the Lord. Instead, as you point out, they prefer to argue with each other over mole hills and end up making mountains of threads that just debate what ends up being nonsense on both sides. Too much Fundamentalist Legalism going on. Not a lot of Love in action going on here, just Pride and one-upmanship. I wish you the best on your journey and will say a prayer for you to find the type of guidance that you need. Sorry to see you go...

    Woke up from my afternoon nap. And this name lingers in my thought. Hezekiah. Search the net and saw the meaning. It means YAHWEH Strengthens. Dig even more, and ended to 2 Chronicles 32:7 "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king of Assyria and the vast army with him, for there is a greater power with us than with him." If you read the whole chapter you'll see how the people of King Hezekiah gained confidence in these words from their king. And this is my take home, Let your faith be an invitation for God to show His power. Let God be glorified through your FAITH. Let His fame spread.

    Hi Worthy Family, Praise the Lord for you all. I am slowly recovering & your prayers & thoughts have been such an encouragement to me. I even printed them off & took them to the hospital for encouragement. The op went very well & I need no follow up, however I was quite sick afterwards for a few weeks – weak, tired & with brain fog. A big lesson in just resting in the Lord. So bit by bit I will now be commenting & posting here on Worthy. I have quite a few threads I want to start, but will take it slow. Look forward to chatting with you all, Love Marilyn.

    2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 2Ti 4:4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. The statement of faith that we all subscribed to when joining Worthy states that the 66 books of the Bible are the complete inerrant and inspired words of God. That is what exhaustive means. Perhaps the people who can't subscribe to our statement of faith should bow out of the believers portion of our forums. "We believe that the 66 books of the Canon, from Genesis to Revelation are the exhaustive, inerrant and inspired word of God. " Those who are unbelievers are easily deceived. Without the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit they are unable to understand the Bible properly and they have no discernment. So The Bible reads like Nostradamus to them--just some mystical poetry with a few words occasionally that make sense. Most people can understand Ecclesiastes, for instance. So maybe the thing that keeps the Bible from becoming a living Book to others who call themselves Christians is that they aren't truly born again, so they still lack discernment. New Christians are also easily deceived. Once a person has swallowed the lies of satan they seem to lose the discernment and are unable to discern truth from fiction. Such is the nature of deception. Most pseudoepigraphica or other spurious writing have some truth floating around in them. For instance, the book of Mormon has parts of the King James bible word for word. Most translations vary a little bit like the New American Standard varied from the New King James bible. So we would expect some differences. But Joseph Smith committed pure plagiarism. I haven't read the forgotten books of Eden and frankly don't want to waste my time on them. It is bad enough that other books that are fiction have been included as Scripture in a majority of the church's bibles such as Catholic and Orthodox Bibles; such is Bell and the Dragon. The inerrant truth is contained only in 66 books of the Bible.

    Sing4, i am replying a second time, cause i really don't think you should go, but think about it some more after all the replies you have gotten here. There are some really solid Bible teachers here who have years of research and walk with the Lord. I have learned lot of things i took for granted or at least looked them up. You are now part of the team and you have to remember brother Paul and how he persevered. You know, even though some people argue and a bit of wrangling happens at time, it causes people to think when they read those threads about issues and lives are changed and the light gets turned on privately when no one is around. You have to learn to separate the wheat from the tares and press on brother. You are valued here.

    I am begging everyone who sees this to pray for my grandson Brandon. My daughter's ex is evil - he is a filthy liar controlled by the evil one, who speaks his native language. He is trying to gain control of my grandson, when he and his wife are drug addicts, and she squatted and urinated on the floor, exposing herself to my grandson. She smeared excrement on the walls, and stole all of his money from his bank, and stole his video games for drugs. He got an unethical lawyer to take his case and we are going through TORMENT! The judged lied in open court, saying that he spoke with my grandson and "he said he wants to see his dad." I have been my grandson's biggest caretaker since birth and am very close to him. I quietly asked him if he told the judge that, and he said "no". I asked him 3 times and he said "no" 3 times. The judge is FORCING him to see his evil father! THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING. THEY ARE HURTING HIM. HE IS ONLY 8 ! My daughter dropped him off and told me that he's been depressed, and is going downhill again. I can't get into it - it's terrible. He is a handsome, well-adjusted innocent boy and this crazy judge controlled by satan is pushing my grandson to supervised visitations. I AM BEGGING EVERYONE TO PLEASE PRAY. I AM SICK WITH FEAR. PLEASE!!! THEY ARE DESTROYING HIM. I am afraid my husband will have a heart attack - the stress on him is too much. We've been hit with my high medical bills and we are getting hammered in every way and need prayer desperately. I AM GOING TO CALL THIS SATANICALLY CONTROLLED JUDGE AND DEMAND IT BE STOPPED. THEY TRY TO PLAY GOD!!!!!!! I NEED EVERYONE'S PRAYERS. GOD HELP ME.

    Sorry to be off topic, but as an admin, this caught my attention. I have not been adminning the forums long, but I am not aware of an instance where warnings have occurred over a political stance. If a person, for example, says something defamatory about a leader or some accusation about a candidate without backing up their criticisms with verifyable facts, then yes, they will be warned, as this is not proper behavior. Note that it is the behavior, not the stance, that is not tolerated. Similarly, when forums users go off the deep end in a thread, and get personal with each other, they are warned for their behavior, not thier stance. Here though Bill, what I am objecting to, is the accusation or implication, that we admins warn people for simply disagreeing with a political position. Can you point out even one time where this has actually happened? Can you point out a single time, where you have posed a question to an admin about this practice, where it has not been answered? I am not talking about some comment in a thread (there are thousands of threads and only a handful of admins, so we do not read everything) but some instance where you or someone made an actual effort to contact one of us directly about this. I can speak for myself than neither you nor any of our 70,000+ plus registered users, has ever contacted me about this, nor have I ever failed to respond to any other complaint or critical question that any have made. In spirit then Bill, I contend that you are making false accusations and harming the reputations of people who spend a lot of effort and personal time, trying to keep these forums orderly, fair, and inclusive. Censorship is extremely rare, and then done within the guidelines of the Terms of Service that you agreed to when you joined.

    You should let your good works be evident to all, so that God gets the glory, and others are helped. If you do it for show, to elevate yourself, then you are off track. Motive counts for a lot, consider the Pharisees!

    Truth is this site has a political slant to it thta I dont like. If you disagree with it you get warned, great way to shut off debate and the admins dont answer queries about it so I guess thye like it as is and dont really mind people being silenced. As for me I welcome people and any meaningful convos I save for a place where you dont get warned for speaking up.

    Hi Imnotjoking, Thank you for sharing your heart.` Other one` has good ideas which help him & some may help you. Worth a try. Now my thoughts are - you are letting your feelings run you. You said - `I've asked God to remove these feelings of misery, to help me feel closer to him, I still feel this way.` Our body is our responsibility - our arms, legs, ears, mouth, brains, feelings, etc. They should be run by our will. You tell your brain to make your arms move etc, you tell your brain to come in line with the truth & not lies. Thus you have to feed your brain what is true & question thoughts that are pulling you down. Your feelings are the result of what you are `eating,` what you are thinking. And I believe you have let your brain run here & there & not pulled it up. It will take some time, but as you start to recognise the downward spiral in your thinking, then you can bring in the truth. `For though we walk in the flesh we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for the pulling down of strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.` (2 Cor. 10: 3 - 5) Replace that wrong thinking, (bit by bit) with the truth. Just have one scripture to think on, not try & read too much. Digest a small bit & let God open it up to you. All the best, & praying, Marilyn.

    It is actually not our job to convert others. Our job is to proclaim Gospel (good news). It is Holy Spirit which will minister to the soul and draw the person to Lord. We cannot win over people with our intellect or wisdom.

    Blessings nosolostsoul Welcome to Worthy.....You speak as though you once believed the Word of God,this doesn't mean that you ever had Wisdom or Understanding though......I don't even know if you ever have or do think yourself to be a Christian so it is very difficult to even speculate...there are just too,many variables here..... THe reason I say you speak as though you once believed the Word of God is only because you said you "confirmed it"with Gods Word......so,if you truly believed God Word then you would believe what He SAys.... God cannot LIE,HE is Faithful to His Promises,His Word.....this still doesn't do much to address your situation,I could say that your "messages","people & situations that you thought were a sign or Promise from God were not because you lack the Wisdom ,Understanding & Discernment by Power of the Holy Spirit ,period... but perhaps you are/were a Christian(a carnal minded one) and the things you were asking for were not what God had in Mind when He Touched your heart?I don't know,maybe you asked that someones business fail & they prospered,.mean while God had nothing to do with it...Prosperity in this world is far different than true Prosperity ..... Like I said,there is just not enough information to do anything more than say"Maybe this & maybe that" But the only thing that is 100% positive ,100% without fail is that God does not lie,,,,,,Have you ever had a RELATIONSHIIP with God in Christ Jesus,I wouldn't think so because then you could never make such a statement....I think you may have had "religion".......religion is not Relationship......Obviously ,whatever the issue is"you didn't get your way"(or in your time) & now you blame God...you asked us what you should do & my answer is "Repent & Seek Gods Face in Jesus".....seems you were seeking His Hand,if you get to know Him you can be FRee from doubt,bitterness,resentment & Receive,Joy ,Peace & Comfort from His Blessed Assurance............He Loves you With love-in Christ,Kwik

    Joel reminds me a lot of Norman Vincent Peale who preached The Power of Positive Thinking, a cult. His goal is to help you feel good about yourself, which is why he is always positive and smiling. He will not say an atheist will not go to heaven, or a Muslim. His claim is that there are many ways to Jesus, which they are as we all come from different backgrounds, yet, if someone dies without being saved, they are lost. Joel will not tell people that their sinful nature will keep them from God unless you repent and accept Jesus. His claim is that he will not judge the salvation of others, yet he does not preach against sin, just how to feel good about yourself. Left by ourselves, without Christ, do you think we will be with Him after death?

    I am afraid you are incorrect in your assumption that Steve has a puppet account for the reasons you mentioned. I was an admin here for many years and know the software they use. The reason you continue to see OOTS posts is due to another person quoting him, not because his account is linked to Steve's. You will not see any of his personal posts, but when someone quotes him, or anyone else you place on ignore, you will see them in their quotes. The software does not search quotes to ensure you don't see them when someone quotes him. As for your decision to leave, that is up to you. I have a warning for something I said to another member, and I knew when I posted I was going against the TOS. I own up to my mistakes. Perhaps you should also.

    I was a heroin addict for 25 years. Then while I was in jail I said the sinners prayer. In an instance i was saved by our Lord Jesus. It was the scariest thing in my life. I was made whole and bran new in the blink of an eye. So the saying once a junkie always a junkie is not true. That was in 1999 17/18 years ago and been with Jesus ever since, god bless you all hatchy.

    I'm done debating things on here. It leads to nowhere. In all the debates I have gotten into on here I have never convinced anyone that I am right and they are wrong. It has done nothing but cause strife and misunderstanding among us. So I am done with it. Or at less I am going to try to be. If I feel the need to say anything at all about a topic, I will state what I believe to be true. Then if needed state the reasons why I believe what it is I believe. I will try to answer questions ask of me as long as they are not in a judgmental attitude. Then that's it. You can either agree with what I say or disagree. I am not going to post 20 some post on the same topic trying to convince everyone that I am right. Thank You And God Bless.

    Actually that is not right. Paul was not speaking of himself but men in general. Men are the heads of women (if anyone is wondering here at this point, I am a woman). Women cannot teach men. Women can teach women and children and even help their husbands in some capacities but they otherwise cannot teach men or lead churches. And women were not running churches, but held position along with their husbands. As for that last part, that command against women speaking in churches applies to any culture where women were/are uneducated sat apart from the men, and without intending to be rude or disrespectful would often shout across to their husbands or girlfriends when they didn't understand something. I once read of a pastor's account of a church in Africa where that sometimes still happens. Paul's command against women speaking on churches was thus not demeaning women in any way but was a respectful admonition for them to ask their questions at a more appropriate time and place.

    Great suggestion Yown......There's also the "Praise" Forum and we are always needed in the "Prayer Requests " too........when I want "quiet time" here I frequent those areas and avoid many of the "heavy" & highly opinionated discussions.....sometimes I simply browse the "Welcome Forum" & greet new members I try to avoid DEBATE,there shouldn't really be much to debate with people of like mind & judgement anyway but not everyone understands the difference between "reasoning" TOGETHER and the desire to get THEIR point across.......the easiest way to avoid conflict is to not participate in it,lol I think thats what our Brother Sing has opted for but I hope we can encourage him to stay and find his own "comfort zone" within the Ministry,I've been where he is,we probably all have......getting back to your suggestion,it is a great idea.............what do you think, Sean?

    your offense is unfounded by Scripture Jude 3-16 (KJV) [3] Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. [4] For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. [5] I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. [6] And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. [7] Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. [8] Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. [9] Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. [10] But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. [11] Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. [12] These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; [13] Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. [14] And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, [15] To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. [16] These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. Love, Steven

    If you believe something, faith, and dont do anything all you have is lipservice. no action. If you believe in something and you act upon those convictions then it gives not only purpose but its evident you believe what you say. If you dont ever do anything then its kinda lazy. kinda pointless. and there is no fulfillment other than saying thats right, i believe. if you say i believe if someone has two coats and someone else has zero coats they should give one coat to the person without. but... you dont do it when you have two coats, what do you really believe? What good does it do your neighbor? What good does it do to believe anything if you dont act?

    None of us have what it takes, that's why it took Jesus death for our sins and His perfect righteousness for the obedience we lack. Look to Him and His FREE GIFT of salvation. Romans 5:6,8,10 KJVS [6] For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. [8] But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. [10] For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

    Yes, the Illuminati are very real. They were discovered in Bavaria and disbanded but they reformed again. They consist of a number of leading bankers and members of wealthy families, allegedly including the Bilderbergs, the Rothschilds and the Rockefellas, as well as a number of senior Freemasons and Jesuits. Although the members at the very top of the pyramid are all Luciferians and their identities are unknown. They are trying to take over the World and their motto is 'order from chaos'. Led by the Devil himself they are trying usher in the Anti-Christ under a one-World government. George Soros is one of their puppets and I wouldn't be surprised if the Clintons and the Obamas aren't involved as well. They want to destroy Christianity and Christian family values. They control much of Hollywood and the music industry and they have infiltrated many World governments at the highest levels. They want complete Globalisation and are behind many of the scams and hoaxes that we hear about, including man-made Global Warming. They want a one-world bank and one World currency. They control the EU and the United Nations. They have been brainwashing young people for the last generation or so via the mainstream Media and the education system.

    While i agree with Willa statement, i just want to make a comment. The statement of faith on Worthy here is a statement of what this forum stands for and believes. However, if someone mentions a book and let's say they find it an interesting read, i would want to hear about that book and want to know why the person is interested in the writings. This actually is how this topic really got started here, as the book mentioned in another thread caught my attention and i was just asking why it interested the person, specifically sister. Sister did open up and let her thoughts known and i do respect her for the short time i have been here and seen her post and replies. She was not promoting the book and we should acknowledge that. I personally can tell you about things that i have and is still experiencing as a christian and basically except for Ephesians, I have found little explanation for these things. In my opinion, as long as one does not promote or state that extra-Biblical teachings on Worthy, then i see no ill caused. You as a believer has to read your Bible and with the Holy Spirit and prayer, you cannot be led away from the truth. Sister has stated emphatically that she has been studying the Bible for 29 yrs now and i think she should be able to come to her conclusions. Whatever that is i would not say she is not a believer, because she reads such books. She has to answer for her, deeds and faithfulness in worship to her God. On the other hand, the members here can point out, what the sixty six books says in contrast and an interesting dialogue can be had. Jayne stated that she was angry and wasted 2 hours of her life. Well there are many things here that i read and is not pleased with, but i don't express that emotions here. Remember, christian would get all kind of stones and hurts thrown at them, but as you mature one has to know it is all part of the enemy plan to distort and divide. Sister is a dear person in my heart here and we should not cast stones and think she is not a servant of the Lord if she reads those books. We have to make our statement about our beliefs and this forum's too and present scripture to show where disagreement is not in line with the sixty six books. We have to know the enemy and his tatics too.

    Why be nervous? To me, this is just another day in my life. I do hope Trump will start to straighten things out in DC and the Government, but I'm not going to worry about it, nor hold my breath.
