    Hello everyone: My name is Natalie and I am new to this site. I have an issue that I struggle with on a frequent basis, and would like to know how you, as a Christian, handle it. I struggle with taking things personally. I have difficulty differentiating between feeling hurt that a boundary has been crossed, and simply making things that are not about me personally. I want to learn how to think in a biblical manner on this issue and I would appreciate any biblical wisdom on this subject. Thank you for reading this. Have a great day:)

    Welcome, nataly. Many people have this problem. Part of it is a matter of maturing in Christ. Some of it is needing to die to self. Some is realizing that people treated Christ badly and He told us that we would be treated the same way. So sometimes it is Christ in us who is being treated badly. Blessings, Willa

    That is not really comparable to Scripture, though. In the Bible, we are not dealing with one six word sentence for which we have no historical, cultural or literary context. Interpretation is not a subjective exercise. The meaning isn't derived from the reader, but from the author. What is often the case is that people confuse application and interpretation. There can be only one interpretation. If we read a newspaper, a cookbook, a fictional novel, a book of Shakespearean poetry, we naturally adjust our thinking to accommodate the intent of the author. We don't assume the author has 50 different possible meanings or "interpretations." Our goal is to understand what the author wants us to understand. When it comes to the Bible, though, it seems like those rules we operate by in ordinary life simply go out the window and suddenly, no one is can understand it, no one can interpret it. We can interpret ANYTHING else, but the Bible it seems. But that is simply not the case. The Bible isn't hard to understand IF the Bible is your final authority and you know what it says. We do not have a perfect or exhaustive knowledge of everything it contains, but the Bible isn't a collection of riddles and God isn't trying to keep us in the dark. Any one can read and understand, make sense of and competently interpret Scripture in terms of what they need for life and spiritual growth and to be in relationship/fellowship with God. The more we grow, the more we learn. The Bible is a book that is designed to be studied and searched out. That's why there is no one single verse or chapter, or book of the Bible that contains all of the truth on any given subject. It has to be searched out, but too many people are brainwashed to think that they can't study it or understand it, and need someone else to do it for them. Pretty pathetic. Many people don't know God because they don't know the Bible and what is in it, simply because they have been told that they can't know it.

    Holding you and your precious wife Linda up in prayer. Have you had your home checked for black mold and radon? Just something I thought to ask. God be with you both.

    Did enjoy that OneLight, And as I`ve just popped in, (time out from the ever long, never ending debate) and would like to give my two cents worth. The ministries of the ascended Lord, (5 fold) are given to the Body whether some recognise them or not. However when we are talking of leaders over man`s organisations, there are many reasons why women have not been given positions there - having children, (therefore took longer to work up the hierarchy), man`s prejudice, tradition, the amount of administration that is really the job, etc etc. Marilyn.

    Praying for accurate results for any tests so that a correct diagnosis can be made. Also praying for complete healing and that your lungs might be clear, so that you can breathe easily without any obstruction or difficulty.

    Welcome~! ~ See that no one returns evil for evil to anyone, but always follow after that which is good, for one another, and for all. Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus toward you. 1 Thessalonians 5:15-18 (New Heart English Bible)

    all depends on how much time you have spent to sort out the real from the fog of disinformation that the globalists have thrown out..... and it helps to have started from the beginning.

    Thanks for the update! I will definitely pray that the Father give you strength and peace during this time.

    Thank you all so very much. The doctor informed me today that my dad has a severe infection. He has stopped eating and has lost almost 20 pounds within the last 10 days. It is heartbreaking to see a man that was once so strong, (a Korean War veteran) now so incredibly frail. I know when the Lord calls him home, it is HIS will. I pray for strength to see my daddy go. Thank you all, again, for your heartfelt prayers. I appreciate them very much. God bless each of you.

    Oh please. Shall I quote all the scriptures that say "the disciples understood NOT...?"

    Here is the all or nothing I was talking about. Is soul winning performed only by Pastors, Elders or Bishops? For the most part, I see more people brought to Christ due to personal conversations with people then a sermon in church.

    Now that is the type of clothes I remember wearing in the 50s--full circle skirt, wide black stretch belt, bobby sox and saddle shoes. But not that blouse--much too risky. I keep seeing an outfit I used to wear on an I Love Lucy rerun!

    No, as I quoted the person I was asking the question to. Reading this whole thread would be like reading a short book, with as much drama.

    Oh good grief, don't make some big melodrama out of O.O.'s post. Those sites DO recruit to spread their message. There's no conspiracy to silence the minority here.

    No, they actually seek to recruit people but I don't know who 'they' are. Some kind of left wing organization like move on or BLM or Occupy Wall Street; something along those lines. They recruit on FB and Twitter from what I'm told.

    A family's son being murdered is nothing to laugh about regardless of sources that are provided here. You don't like those sources, don't respect them, that's fine. But a LMAO emote is insensitive. WATCH: Detective Discusses Mystery Surrounding Murdered DNC Staffer on ‘Hannity’ posted by Hannity.com Staff - 3 hours ago

    Husband wife teams may also be appropriate sometimes. We had a man with a wonderful evangelical ministry, but his wife was the prayer warrior and they were most effective as a team. Now he works for YWAM giving training seminars in evangelism for their many headquarters around the world.
