  1. A thought-provoking news bite: http://www.truthrevolt.org/commentary/commentary-what-if-christian-terrorists-were-blowing-muslims
  2. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. This issue is not about opinions but about sordid facts. The RCC has never dealt with this issue properly, even until very recently.
  3. How many 'biases' were there before there were any denominations ? i.e. Yahshua's declarations bout the scribes and pharisees// scholars of Scripture//. ((and lawyers/ teachers/ rich/ educated ones))

    Hello

    My name is Emilie, I am 24 years old and trying to find God and Godly friends to strengthen my faith. I've had a difficult sstrggle with Anorexia (binge/purge subtype) since I was 13 years old. I am 5"2 and 90 lbs. I had my baby boy 2 months ago and he was 5 weeks early due to my weight issues. Thankfully he had no major health concerns and is thriving now. I know I need to better myself and the best way I can do that is by seeking God and a supportive community.
  5. The history of assembled Scripture with prophecy is the best evidence... many have approached Scripture with integrity to prove it wrong and have been converted by what they found in the empirical aspects alone!
  6. Medicare - Part G - Nursing Home PlanSay you are an older senior citizen and can no longer take care of yourself and the government says there is no Nursing Home care available for you. So, what do you do? You opt for Medicare Part G. The plan gives anyone 75 or older a gun (Part G) and one bullet. You are allowed to shoot one worthless politician.This means you will be sent to prison for the rest of your life where you will receive three meals a day, a roof over your head, central heating and air conditioning, cable TV, a library, and all the Health Care you need. Need new teeth? No problem. Need glasses? That's great. Need a hearing aid, new hip, knees, kidney, lungs, sex change, or heart? They are all covered!As an added bonus, your kids can come and visit you at least as often as they do now! And, who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you they can't afford for you to go into a nursing home. And you will get rid of a useless politician while you are at it. And now, because you are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any more income taxes! Is this a great country or what? Now that you have solved your senior financial plan, enjoy the rest of your week!
  7. The Other-Side Of The Story ~ PS: The Word Of God And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Matthew 16:19 Is Taught With Resurrection Power Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12 And So Beloved, I Should Now But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Be Offended? Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? Galatians 4:16 ~ May God Bless Bill's Heart For Jesus And For The Little Children And May HE Continue To Bless The Folks At Bethel And Especially Dear Brother Andrew Too Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:3-4 Love, Your Brother Joe
  8. Amen~! So Beloved, Can A Sinner But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 Still Be Saved? Really? For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 God Knows~! And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. Mark 10:26-27
  9. (Worthy News) - The U.S. Army's elite Delta Force operations to target, capture or kill top ISIS operatives have begun in Iraq, after several weeks of covert preparation, an administration official with direct knowledge of the force's activities told CNN. The official said the group has spent the last several weeks preparing, including setting up safe houses, establishing informant networks and coordinating operations with Iraqi and Peshmerga units. It's the same strategy that Special Operations forces have used in previous deployments to combat zones. Several Pentagon and military officials declined to discuss specifics of the so-called Expeditionary Targeting Force with CNN. [ Source ] No related posts. View the full article
  10. Joshua-777, and others, please consider what is being said. This "stuff" is not of God, nor has it ever been. There are real signs and wonders that come from God at times. I can find references to those throughout the Bible, which always has to be our guideline. There are "real" signs and wonders that also come from Satan. What makes them "false signs and wonders" is not that they are not "real" but the fact the kingdom of Satan that is behind them. One of the things I've noted in a number of those who are in the Charismatic and Pentecostal churches over the years, is that they chase the spiritual gifts of God in the Bible FIRST. And God Himself, if pursued and loved at all, is "SECOND." At this point, they are breaking His first and second commandment, making an idol out of His spiritual gifts. When it is in this backward order of God having second place, it is not Him behind those manifestations, but Satan. Who would have those experiencing these manifestations believe they come from God... Delusion can be a strong thing when our love is out of order. He has to have first place. God is a jealous God. 2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: We are to love and pursue God first, and for those of us who believe in Christ, at times His gifts can follow as outlined out in the Word. And when they do not, we should have that same love and faith to trust and follow Him. Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. The book "Physics of Heaven." mentioned in the video that Bethel put out just by the context presented shows it's riddled with Satanic "New Age" teachings. It has Bill and Beni Johnson, Larry Randolph, Bob Jones, Ray Hughes, Cal Pierce, Dan McCollam, Jonathan Welton, and David Van Koevering in it. The video on Bill Jonson also reminds me of Benny Hinn. Years ago, Benny Hinn feels he "got his anointing" not from God, but from the graves of Aimee S. Mcpherson and Kathryn Kuhlman. He also has "seen" Kathryn on stage with him speaking to him after her death. This is demonic necromancy in it's purest demonic form. Neither Benny Hinn, Mrs. Beni Johnson, or anyone else can "soak" anointing from someones grave. Benny Hinn has also stated in the past, that Jesus Christ was going to show up with him on stage. (Jesus has yet to do so.) Mat 24:23-26 (23) Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. (24) For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. (25) Behold, I have told you before. (26) Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. Jesus Christ will not be ever showing up on Benny's stage, or any other place. When He comes, the whole world will know it in the flash of a moment: Mat 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
  11. We are humbling and honoring our GOD, no need personal gloryWe are called to have humility to honor fellow Christians tooWe are failed if we fail to love othersWe are zero if we hate and reject some person,. God is Judge.. We need to take good care to stay with holiness when our knowledge and wisdom boasting us to blind our conscience..We are called to serve with patience Even we die like Lazarus who died with poverty.. nothing to bother.. Dear brethren, God used me to build many prayer halls, to plant many churches,. to train and send many ministers to fields, to help many suffering people, to do many activities, still i am not with strong home, lot of times flesh is demanding to focus on self needs.. but spirit is keeping me to stay and focus on vision.. And mind is not satisfying for what God did through me.. but always mind is fearing to stay in cool and pure love with God and people.. THIS IS A GREAT UNCEASING FIRE IN HEART.. every 5 seconds 9 people going to die.. 6 of them are not hear the gospel... we need to more to spread the gospel.. who knows our little sleep can send some people to hell,, who knows our little more care can save some souls to kingdom of God...WHAT WE HAVE DONE IS NOT GREAT OBSERVATION ON HOW WE ARE FAILING IS IMPORTANT TO LIVE AS MENTOR FOR GOD.. THANK YOU JESUS....

  14. So, what is next? If a president is 1 1/2 years from the end of their term there is no hearings? Where does it end? If the President submits a name they should get the same fair treatment as if it were 2 years ago. Anything other than that is ignoring the constitution

    Hello

    Welcome thinmint, Congrats on your baby boy. Well done. Now as you feed on the Lord, thanking Him daily for ..................................... your heart will be strengthened & filled & you will find that the other pressures will become less. Everyday is a battle but with the Lord by our side we will overcome. Blessings, Marilyn.
  16. NO they just lick their nose then give you slobbery dog kisses yeuk
  17. This sort of implies that the Russians had not tested their weapons at all before using them in combat. And that is nonsense. All weapons are tested beforehand on testing ranges to make sure they, at the very least, won't blow up unexpectedly and kill the users rather than the targets. After such testing, there always comes the first time such weapons are used in combat. This is what Russia is doing in Syria. No different at all from what the US did in the Gulf War of 1991 when it first began using depleted uranium in its weaponry.
  18. Years ago I had a huge betrayal to my children and myself. I prayed fervently but felt God just wasn't listening and maybe didn't care. So....I took it upon myself to find out exactly what was happening and why. Everything I did to try to find truth in this situation was thwarted. And I mean everything! I was left with..ok, I'm really hurting and I don't know how to help my children, and I just don't understand....but it is up to you God, I place it in your hands. Later, one day everything came to light...all my questions answered. But also at that time I received the clear understanding that if I had known the truth earlier I would not have been able to cope with it. God chose his time, and his love for me was the standard. Remember Lazarus.the thought Jesus was 4 days late. NO He wasn't. Jesus Christ knew exactly when He needed to raise Lazarus. I look back and see exactly how God was with me. We grow in faith through these times. Sorry about the long post.
  19. Yes, I am very thankful to still have my dad. My mom died when I was 24. She was only 59. I couldn't have asked for better parents. We didn't have a lot, but always had what we needed. Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. You are a blessing.
  20. Praying in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth(the Eternal God). Acts 3:6: Apostle Peter prayed for a sick man this way -and he was healed.

  22. A warm Welcome Sister, I pleaded with the Lord three times to take it away from me, but he has told me, “My grace is all you need, because my power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most happily boast about my weaknesses, so that the Messiah’s power may rest on me. That is why I take such pleasure in weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties for the Messiah’s sake, for when I am weak, then I am strong. 2. Corinthians 12,8-10 I hope you'll find a lot of support in this community and the family in christ. Nobody is without struggles. Spiritual warfare is most with those who burn the brightest. But God's Grace is found in our weakness and our strength is a result of our struggles.

    Daniel 8

    Greetings "Sister", Have you compared the four kingdoms of Daniel 7 represented by four beasts with the four kingdoms of Daniel 2 represented by the four successive metals of the image? Daniel 2:37-40 (KJV): 37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. 38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. 39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. 40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. Kind regards Trevor
  24. I like that intro welcome to the forums!
  25. I am glad to hear that your dad is recovering. A UTI is common as often is due to a lot of antibiotics. Prayers are very powerful. He hears each and everyone of them Did you say that they put a stent in your dad?
  26. I have to answer in here as still a noob to the site myself Do you think evolution is true? If not why not? It is a theory, it is not proven. Before I was a Christian I could not understand how evolution could really be true. Too many chances and odds and doesnt explain love, art, morality, purpsoe, family, destiny etc etc. Should a killer who truthfully repents be allowed into heaven? A more interesting question would be if a killer murders someone, and by their actions sends that person to hell, and then that same killer repents and goes to heaven, is that justice? Should a kindhearted atheist or person of another faith be allowed into heaven? I believe God will draw all men to him in his timing. If a person you care about is ill (and I hope that never happens) would you just pray for them or would you take them to a doctor? If you say you'd do both, then which do you think would have more effect? Faith in healing isn't something that can just be given. The person who needs the healing is the one who seeks it. It's also for the individual to decide such things but you should go to the doctor's in the first instance to get a diagnosis. Would you be happy in heaven, if somebody you loved was in hell? No. Nobody would. Which is one reason I do not believe in eternal hell. Who's prayers does god answer? And if it's ultimately his will what happens anyway, then why bother praying? All prays but they may not be answered the way we always want. His ultimate plan yes, but that doesn mean we cannot influence what happends in the here and now. If god spoke to you and told you to kill somebody, would you do it? God would not ask you to do that. Is god always watching you? How about when you're on the toilet? Yes, so make sure you wipe your bum properly, don't block to the toilet with lots of paper and clean your hands afterwards If Christianity was proven wrong, what would you're reaction be? It won't, so I won't worry about that Why has so much of the bible been proven wrong, like the flat Earth theory? Where does it say the earth is flat in the bible? It doesn't, its one of those things atheists like to say that is simply false. Is the bible literally true, or just morally The bible is made up to true events, poems, parables, dreams and prohesy. Not all of it is literal then.
  27. in keeping with that theme that God is greater -- we ought also to remember, that not only is our battle not against the things in the world, but against spiritual forces, but also that it is not us who fights, but God who fights for us -- as Moses told the Israelites when Egypt's armies were pinning them against the Sea of Reeds, The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still. (Exodus 14:14) it is Him who works in us and through us -- that's the meaning of this songs title, "A Nuh Me" -- i.e. "it's not me" could not find a lyric file, and this brother of ours has a thick patois accent and fast-rapping style that is a combination of roots-reggae and NYC hip-hop. sorry about that. but here is the chorus, which is representative of the message in all that he is saying in this song: no weapon that is formed against me shall prosper i watch the whole of them a disappear like jasper a nuh me, a nuh me, a nuh me a go fight no army a nuh me, a nuh me, a nuh me - Jehovah Jireh
  28. a real trip is the word love..... do some root word studies and original Hebrew/Greek words and it will change the way you see things.
  29. Try and get some rest -- it's the best prescription for confusion.
  30. Because Of Him Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Romans 8:34 We Pray Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Romans 8:36 ~ Praying~! Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord. John 12:13 Hosanna LORD, Save Now~!

    I love your intro, beautiful!! Welcome to the forums.
  32. Fundamenatalists do not have an exclusive claim to, and hold on, sola scriptural. Sola scriptura is held by ALL evangelicals, not just fundamentalists. In fact, sola scriptura is held by protestantism in general, of which evangelicals make up only a part, and fundamentalists make up even a smaller part.
  33. so what exactly is a "liberal" - someone who doesn't agree with your personal interpretation of scripture? It seems you believe all conservative evangelicals are fundamentalists, but that certainly is not true. All of us, as evangelical Protestant Christians, believe in 1) the supreme authority of inspired Scripture for faith and practice, 2) basic Christian orthodoxy as embodied in the consensus of the church fathers and reformers about the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, the Trinity, etc., 3) a supernatural worldview, 4) salvation by God’s grace through faith alone, 5) personal conversion as normative for authentic Christianity, 6) the cross of Jesus Christ as the only means of salvation and as vicarious atonement, 7) the virgin birth, resurrection and visible return of Jesus Christ. The distinctive hallmarks of post-1925 fundamentalism are 1) adding to those essentials of Christianity non-essentials such as premillennial eschatology, 2) “biblical separation” as the duty of every Christian to refuse fellowship with people who call themselves Christians but are considered doctrinally or morally impure, 3) a chronically negative and critical attitude toward culture including non-fundamentalist higher education, 4) emphatic anti-evolution, anti-communist, anti-Catholic and anti-ecumenical attitudes and actions (including elevation of young earth creationism and American exceptionalism as markers of authentic Christianity), 5) emphasis on verbal inspiration and technical inerrancy of the Bible as necessary for real Christianity (including exclusion of all biblical criticism and, often, exclusive use the KJV), and 6) a general tendency to require adherence to traditional lifestyle norms (hair, clothes, entertainment, sex roles, etc.). Who were these post-1925 fundamentalists? Not all of these embodied all six of the above hallmarks, but they generally functioned within that ethos: William Bell Riley, Frank Norris, Bob Jones, Carl McIntire, John R. Rice and the early Jerry Falwell. And many, many more. Most of them were non-Reformed, but there was a Reformed camp of fundamentalists who shared that ethos without premillennialism. (I would locate Cornelius Van Til there.) How did the postfundamentalist evangelicals differ from them? Beginning in the 1940s and increasingly throughout the 1950s former self-identified fundamentalists began to shy away from that identity and ethos without embracing liberalism or neo-orthodoxy. They 1) sought to establish ecumenical cooperation and fellowship among evangelicals who disagreed about non-essentials such as eschatology and predestination [“generous orthodoxy”], 2) sought to be cautiously open to secular culture and higher education and its products, and 3) sought to overcome legalism that had become characteristic of much fundamentalism. In other words, the main difference between the new evangelicals and the fundamentalists was one of ethos—at least from the new evangelical point of view. From the fundamentalist point of view, of course, the difference was more than one of ethos. It was often viewed as one of departure from the gospel. The new evangelicalism was to be a broad tent that included everyone from conservative Presbyterians to Pentecostals to Advent Christians to Nazarenes to (recently) the Worldwide Church of God. Fundamentalists were invited to join but declined. Still, formally speaking, fundamentalists are evangelicals and, to liberals, anyway, all evangelicals are fundamentalists. http://www.patheos.com/blogs/rogereolson/2012/04/what-distinguishes-evangelical-from-fundamentalist/ Noting that last line, Still, formally speaking, fundamentalists are evangelicals and, to liberals, anyway, all evangelicals are fundamentalists. since I recognize all evangelicals are not fundamentalists, I cannot be liberal by definition.
  34. Hi WilliamL, Now here I was thinking it was only the women with an `elephant memory.` And glad you didn`t expire! Will answer your question on `unwalled` villages soon. Marilyn.
  35. Hi Spock, Ah...the `dwelling securely.` Good point there bro. So here is my take on that. I see that the coming Global Leader arises a step at a time. Thus I believe he will step into the volatile Middle East (soon) & bring a measure of peace there. This is BEFORE the 7 year peace treaty. So this is what I am looking for in the next few years. `Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity...` (Dan. 8: 25 NKJ) `And through his policy he shall cause trickery to prosper in his hand; & mind, & in their security he will corrupt & destroy many.` (Dan. 8: 25 Amp) Remember for this person to be recognised by the world as a peace maker with Israel (after the Russian war) then he would have had to show some measure of ability to bring peace in that region. The many warring factions there will need a `cunning` person to bring them together even for `spoil` sake. So here`s watching how prophecy unfolds, (I believe) in our day. Marilyn.
  36. BTW that's not an invitation to leave, I am truly wondering why.
  37. There is perfection in the body of Christ. A perfect assembly seated in heavenly places approaching God with clean hands and pure hearts. But until harvest we are wheat planted among tares.
  38. saying that adam was not the first man... how foolish... to say that eve had a baby by satan ... utter foolishness. one claims the tree in the garden were not literal trees... well they GREW OUT OF THE ground and they produced fruit ( which we dont have today ) to say such things that the bible does not say is blaspemy or close to it
  39. Tsth, Did you catch the change from verse 12 to verse 13. Paul was talking to the predestinated up until verse 13. Then he begins to address those of free will. Those whom God will not meddle in their lives, but opens their eyes to His truth because they believed the report of facts given by the Apostles. Not listening to every wind of doctrine that flys by. Give it some thought and listen to Whirlwind's reasoning, because she is right on the mark. Ayin Jade, The first thing you need to learn is to listen to The Lord and to not man. Not this man or anyother person without first checking them out in the scriptures. The second thing you need to learn to do is LISTEN before you jump at someone and start stepping on them. This serves no useful purpose. Whom someone may study with is their business, and what they wish to share of their learning is what this forum is about. You may not agree with them, and that is your right, but you dont have the Right to step on them. You are good at quoting scripture. Why didnt you take a minute and check out the scripture's that Whirlwind gave to document her answer. If you had, then your responce may have been a different one. You just might have learned a little Truth instead of spitting forth damnation. By the way, Adam was not his name, it is what he was created to be, and he was not the first man that our Father created. The first humans were created on the 6th day. Ha Adam as is written in the ancient texts, was created on the 8th day. Biblical numbers carry a lot of information in them. There are several good book's on the market pertaining to this by several different scholar's. Maby you should invest in one. The number 8 stands for a new beginning. Now why do you suppose that there needed to be a new beginning? If you understood Gen. 1,1 and 1,2 Then you would have understood Whirlwind's answer to my question. But by your own words, you have deminstrated your ignorance. The Lord said that we must be born of water and of spirit. Note that the water is first and then the spirit. So who is The Lord refering to when he said WE? Is it not written That all souls come from God and all shall return to him? So, If all souls belong to God, then they must be with Him before they are put into these flesh bodys. Is that to differcult for your pea brain to grasp. There is no intention of reincarnation with that fact. And if all are with Him, Then doesnt it stand to reason that he knows what sort it is. Some good and some bad, because God didnt create anything defiled, They are what they are by their own choosing. This is called free will. Dont you understand that you are one of these souls. That you were with God just as Matthew was, before God placed you here in the flesh? The fact that there was an earth age before this one is not only Biblical, but scientificly upheld. So I would caution you once again, to Listen to The letter that That God sent you, ( The Bible ), and do your homework before you start spouting off at the mouth at others.
  40. I'm sorry you feel as you do. I would never believe or repeat anything that wasn't scripturally founded. Please forgive my intrusion on this thread. .......Whirlwind
  41. Now the question is, what have we done in our lives since Christ has called us? Now that we are believers, what is our response? Are we evangelizing and serving the Lord?
  42. ...and timely also. We need to ask ourselves those questions often.
  43. Yes, the Gospel of Matthew makes a most interesting study. Information in Matthew regarding the crucifixion and resurrection are especially interesting in that they present events that are not found in the other gospels. Matthew (Levi) having been a publican and tax collector had acquaintances within the Roman government system. It is from Matthew that we learn of the request to post a guard at the tomb. From Matthew we learn of the earthquake, the angle and stone rolling back that frightened the soldiers and their subsequent report to the authorities. Matthew tells us of the bribe to the soldiers so they would not report the incident. I think Matthew had
