    Hi everyone, I’m new to this forum! I’m so thankful for God’s work in my life and where’s He’s currently brought me. I got caught up in addiction for a couple years but He’s delivered me and set me free, Amen! I’m currently serving in a ministry and will be going out on missions this summer to Morocco, Turkey, Isreal, and Kyrgyzstan! God is Faithful! Be Blessed, ~ManAfterHisHeart~

    Hello Saints.. My dad has bone cancer, He received treatment two years ago and has been taking medication and the cancer was in remission.. After a recent check he found out the cancer has become active again and it has spread to new areas.. He has been given two options by the doctors:: 1) Another course of the same treatment he had before.. 2) Applying to take part as a test subject for a new medication.. He has to decide by the end of the week what way to go.. I request for prayers for my dad, his name is Vince. Thank you all.. Prayers of true Christians are of great value indeed.. His will be done..

    I grew up with dogs. Now, I have cats. I like dogs and cats. Cats are very lovable. They are messy, but they are easier to care for than dogs. Also, I have a slight allergy to dogs, and no allergy to cats. For most, it is the other way around. Speaking of cats, they are waiting to be fed right now.

    Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against your soul. 1 Peter2:11 Three points are made here that we should all take heed to. 1. We are strangers and pilgrims. As born again Christians, our citizenship is in the Kingdom of God, and we are ambassadors in this world. We should live as such. We represent God, and we are the only Jesus some will ever see. We need to live like strangers and pilgrims, and not get entangled in the sinful pleasures of this world. We need to be a light, and the kind that is on a candlestick, and not hidden under a bushel. We need to be salt, and not the kind that has lost it's savor. That kind of salt is good for nothing, but to be trodden under foot of men, but we need to be salt that has flavor. We need to walk as those who seek a heavenly country, even though we haven't seen it with out natural eyes. We still know in our spirit it is real, and that is our real home. 2. Abstain from fleshly lusts. Avoid things like fornication that defile your temple. Fornication includes all types of sexual perversions, from adultery to homosexuality to sexual relations with someone you are not married to, even if you are single. Lusts can include being a glutton, not just with regard to food, but to living in excess. The lust of the eyes has led to people getting into debts they cannot afford to repay. Trust in God, seek first his Kingdom, and all the things we need will be added to us. 3. Fleshly lusts war against our soul. There are two ways we see this happening. One is internal. We sin as we are drawn away of our own lusts and enticed. Ever heard the saying that the devil made me do it? Sometimes we do things without the devil even being around tempting us. We can be drawn away of our own lusts. On the other hand, sometimes, the devil or his demons are oppressing us. They are speaking things to us, trying to entice us and even harass us into committing sin. Ever felt the need to do something sinful, but your inner man didn't even know why? You just feel this overwhelming pull to do something wrong, and it seems like resistance is almost futile? Sometimes that is an oppressing spirit. They literally wage war against your soul. The Bible says no temptation will come upon you that is not common to man, and the Lord will always make a way of escape. If you are feeling overwhelmed to sin, call on Jesus. He is an ever present help in time of need.

    All the things that Jesus accomplished on the cross....are true and are imputed to us, praise and thanks be to God!! \o/ This is why even though we are not without fault we can come boldly to the throne of grace. But the thing is that now we also have a race to run in attaining those things which are reserved (imputed) in heaven for us....to apprehend in our life and hearts what He has purchased and accomplished on our behalf. This is what our pilgrimage on earth is for, and all for HIS glory (for this purpose: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God. Eph 3:10), which pilgrimage/race isn't over until our life on earth is over. The word of God is not a formula, but it is LIFE and revelation when it is ministered to us by and through the Holy Spirit. The washing of the water of the word (TRUTH!) which transforms and re-NEWS our minds, because as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

    There is no formula for "victory" because we START from the point of victory. I think a lot of people miss that. We start from the point of victory. Jesus has already won the victory for us. We walk in the victory gained for us at Calvary. His victory is already ours. Now, we need to live in a manner that reflects that eternal truth.

    "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, 'Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.' For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, 'Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'" -- Romans 10:9-13 DECLARE with your mouth these truths to God; you know you are a sinner and are hopeless without Him. Tell Him that and ask for His forgiveness. BELIEVE that Jesus is Lord and He died for you, not just a head knowledge, but a true belief that is so strong it spurs you to genuine repentance and a desire to follow God in all ways. This belief should spur you to change, to action, to works. These actions and works are not what saves, but if true salvation has occurred, works are sure to follow, as a healthy tree is not healthy because of the fruit it bears, but it bears fruit because it is healthy.

    Father please hear our prayers for Vince. Lead him in peace to the way he should go regarding treatment. If it is your will to have him be the subject of a new treatment please make him very comfortable with that decision. Lord, cancer is so hard for us as concerned and loving caregivers too. PLease strengthen all around Vince that they might give best aid and comfort and also be comforted themselves. I ask this in the name of my Lord and savior Jesus. Thank You LORD.

    Do you like cats? I have one, came with my bride from Texas. I didn't want a cat. But it came with my bride from Texas. I said no I cannot live with a cat, my allergies you know But it came anyway, with my bride from Texas It's hard to love a cat, but if it comes with my bride- My bride from Texas, how could I refuse my bride? I couldn't, and now this cat, it loves me too. This cat from Texas sits on me and puts it's head under my hand And needs me to pet it for hours on end. But this morning this cat, it ralphed up yesterday's kibble. this cat who used to eat ranch field rats the size of Texas Poor little thing has become a city cat and my little pet from Texas. Came with a sweet Texas Peach from there. Had I only known they ralph ( The cat that is) I'd never have said, well okay bring the cat too, your cat from Texas. And actually I never did, it was just there with my bride in a little cat crate. All the way from Texas. And I do love her so, my sweet Texas Peach. but to tell ya the truth I'm going to wait and let her clean it up, when she awakes, after all it's her cat. [Please don't think ill of me, I'm just having some fun] But tell me, do you like cats? I have come to like this one, nearly as much as I love my bride from Texas. Thank you Lord for both!

    Normally if a person is worried about it, they have not committed the unpardonable sin. It is when they become so hardened that they don't even care that they have done this. I recently read in a word study that the people in the Bible who had committed the unpardonable sin were in fact unbelievers. They had never received Jesus as the Messiah from God, but had always rejected Him. Fear is not from God. Satan came to kill, to steal and destroy. Don't let him steal your joy! He is the father of lies. Just don't believe him and read the truth of God's word. That is what Jesus did when he was tempted by his lies. Jhn 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

    Hi Benz, welcome to Worthy. Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. (Mat 12:31-32) If you don't mind us asking what sin have you done that is so terrible that cases you to believe that? They say the fact that you re worried about it is evidence you have not committed it.

    So, since all of those verses are not warning about the same things, what is your point?
  20. 4 points
    Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Rom 6:11) Lately, this verse has been bandied about in formula form as a tip to a victorious life. The person is urged to just believe in two phases. First, you are to just believe that you are dead to sin and then you are alive to Christ. If you believe these two, success in your Christian walk will surely come as this will guarantee you to overcome sin. The truth of the matter is that this verse was not written as a victory formula but rather as a statement of fact. We are to reckon it as true because it is true...an event that happened in Christ. It is something that happened through Christ's death and resurrection and our being placed into Christ, whether the born again Christian believes it or not.

    So what you have in essence is a battle within a person -- on a daily basis! Really the battle of WHOM you will worship this day! Will you allow your SOUL to dominate your flesh -- or will you allow your FLESH to dominate your WORSHIP? The issue of being born again ... if you are truly born again ... then you have been given a SPIRIT that cannot sin! Can you live a SINLESS life? Not according to 1 John -- 1Jn 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1Jn 1:10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

    As a dog person that's what I thought before 1989! Actually they are quite loving and get attached to you if you are kind to them. One of my cats, now passed on, used to follow me everywhere around the apartment. Even when she was dying, she would take two steps trying to follow me. Of course, I had to put her to sleep... didn't want her to suffer on. My current cat, Miss Kitty, lays behind me every night on top of the sofa as I sit here using my tablet. When I go to bed, she lays beside me for awhile. Then in the morning, she is beside me again for awhile. One of my cats loved my mother...she would crawl under the covers with my mom every night! I had a dear old cat named Snowflake. She was one of the street cats I fed. She would perch in the tree by the front door and come down as soon as she saw me....I didn't have food in the afternoon...she would sit in my lap. I finally took her inside to live with me. She was very attached to me and would plop herself down with me on the rocker. Even an old Tom cat I fed once followed me all the way down the street as I went to the store. He waited for me and then walked back home with me!

    I have had cats all my life.. The only time i did not have a cat was when i was renting a place close to work for a few years and they did not allow pets.. I love cats. My current cat is now 17 years old and she is sweet little lady.. Bronny is her name and eating is her game.. And as long as she keeps eating all is well.. When they stop eating thats when their time is up.. Counting off the top of my head i think i have had 12 / 15 cats in my life..

    I 100% agree... as born again, the begin, is infantile and we grow into the truth of what we were given when born. It is as God's creation dictates with example but no longer of flesh for the flesh is not redeemed. We grow into all things becoming new... with war within our body of flesh till death!

    Could you give us your empirical data? A link to the instrument you used? Actually, just an abstract describing your sample will do fine. It would make your assertion much more logical and less emotional.

    The Bible says no temptation will come upon you that is not common to man, and the Lord will always make a way of escape. OR as james says SUBMIT TO GOD , resist the devil and he will flee. Or as paul says in Hebrews we have a faithful high priest that was tempted in all points yet without sin AND he is able succor us through ANY temptation or trial. Most folks don't like that . why. because it does leave us without excuse . some like feeling that we are trapped and truly cannot stop sinning and so on . This was a good reminder butero. its why we exhort and warn and encourage . to build the body up . What is so sad butero, is that I can but wont , but cant list at least three names of those that hate , and I mean HATE YOU . I say we pray for them . We pray for and not curse but bless. LET them despise and hate us , the world hated JESUS and some of his last words were FATHER FORGIVE THEM . SO no matter , just let us understand , that we will be hated and just like Christ was hated by the highly scholared and those who taught the doctrinse of men as precepts of GOD BELIEVE You me , it seems the pattern is identical to those who LOVE THE LORD and just preach and speak simple truth . NO highly world wise man wants to be seen in error , specially by little uneducated and lowly ones like us . THEY NO LIKEY , they would rather men sit and honor them for their wisdom. AND I seen two of them really boasting in them and their high wisdom . man that was a sad day . But as I said , let us pray for them . Let us desire only the true blessing from GOD to increase into their hearts . And one more thing , LEAP UP and PRAISE THE LORD . YEAH , it don't matter what time o day it is , PRAISE THE LORD my brother , praise the LORD and let all join in with praise to the LORD .

    I also don't understand how some people at your church would say such things about you. They must either be only church members rather than true Christians.....or else they know very little of what the Bible teaches us about the wonderful forgiveness and cleansing our Lord offers to any of us, no matter how awful the sins. Always remember 1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. That means you are cleansed totally....Jesus has taken your sins and given you His righteousness. This is called imputed righteousness...one of the wonderful teachings of our Christian faith.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your dad, Vince’s, health problem, Adstar. I know how difficult and painful it must be for you to see him go through this. I just said a prayer for him, asking the Lord to touch him with His healing hands and strengthen him. Take comfort in God’s mercy, and remember the words of the apostle James: “The prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up...” (James 5:15). May He prove Himself his healer and sustainer in many tangible ways. Grace and peace to you.

    Obviously, I don't believe disagreements can be resolved by anger -- which seems to be the result of trying to win an argument. I do believe that it's a COMPLEX issue -- one that John Wesley and Jonathan Edwards disagreed with one another on -- and they are stalwarts of the faith! I doubt we'll come to a full agreement on this complex issue on WCF! I believe it's foolish to think we'll solve this issue that the church has been debating for hundreds of years in this lifetime. However, I do believe that the truth usually lies between opposing viewpoints so it's important to hear all sides of an issue and then come to a rational understanding led by His Spirit so that you are at peace with reconciling difficult passages in the Bible. Do I believe I'm entirely correct in my understanding? Nope -- I know there are some issues with this issue even as I read and re-read passages of the Bible that don't perfectly fit with everything I've worked out so far, however, I also realize that I'm not perfect and trying to have "perfect" doctrine is like chasing a "sinless" life! I strive -- but in the end, I FAIL. It's in that Spirit of knowing that I don't know it all -- it allows me to stay humble -- allows me to remain teachable -- and allows me to grow each and every day of my walk! Once you think you know it all -- understand it all -- then the reality is you've stopped truly growing and are no longer teachable and you're stunting your growth as a believer! People need to LOVE and LEARN to disagree in LOVE -- when they don't necessarily see eye to eye on a subject.

    No, It's too bad you don't read your Bible very well. Here is the "end of the story:" >>> "And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them. And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God."(Amo 9:14-15) Israel will not be removed and they will always be remembered according to Amos. Not only that, there's this: >>> "Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever." (Jer 31:35-36) So, according to the Lord, as long the sun and the moon and stars exist, Israel will remain and will continue being His people. Last I checked the sun and moon and stars are still up there, so God has not forgotten His people, Israel.

    Actually, it has nothing to do with the strong and weak nuclear forces; rather, it is the amount of UV that is deflected (or not) by a magnetosphere that is weakening as time progresses. The more that comes in, the more the amount of Carbon 12 in comparison to Carbon-14 is affected, as the UV breaks down C-12 and affecting the ratio, thus rendering C-14 dating tenuous at best. Sadly, what you are doing here is trying to provoke an emotional response so that people here will argue with you on an emotional level rather than a scientific one. But as admitted by the "big guns" of Atheism, science is not the real reason for their belief in no God. Rather, it is because in not believing in one, they are not constrained by any "morality", save that which they approve of. Lastly: when you first came here, your stated intention was to become a Christian, but then you changed your mind when you felt you could not "believe any of this". So, why then are you still here if you think all of this is nonsense? What is it to you if we believe it? Or is there a reason atheists come from across the country to a small town no one has ever heard of, to stop them from putting up a Nativity, demand the Ten Commandments be removed, or take down a cross at an obscure cemetery that no one has cared about for decades or longer?
