  1. On a serious (well sort of serious) note, Proverbs has quite a few comical verses. "Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife" (21:9) "If a man loudly blesses his neighbor early in the morning, it will be taken as a curse" (27:14) (the night owl in me feels this one so much) "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful woman who shows no discretion." (11:22) Personally I feel like Jesus was well versed in sarcasm at times based upon some of His rather quick witted replies.
  2. Merciful Father, look down upon Wendy and may she be converted so that she may pass from death to life eternal. Help the family during this trial and bless them in the name of Jesus. Amen.
  3. Hi @bigmike2238, What a nice introductory post. You sound like a very well rounded guy, and I hope you'll enjoy it here also. Welcome to Worthy and God bless! Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  4. Amen. That's probably the very reason God gave us a sense of humor. The old saying is that you can never know a mans trials or tribulations until you have walked a mile in his shoes. But despite the circumstances, sometimes a little humor is all that's needed to lift the spirits and I feel like everything that lifts our spirit is probably of God.
  5. Praying for you, your sister Wendy and the rest of your family. I pray Jesus meets with Wendy and speaks with her before she leaves the earth. Sometimes we don't know what Jesus does in the last days / moments of someone's life. I pray that you will know if she is saved before she passes into eternity. But even if you don't know at the end, we always have that hope that someone got saved in the last moments before entering into eternity. I shall continue to pray for Wendy. God bless. Becky.

  11. Hi! Several people have been wondering where I get my emojis and how I post them. I collect them from various sites, but feel free to copy and use any of mine if you want. Here’s how you can copy any of my emoji: 1. Hold your finger down on the emoji until a box opens up. 2. Choose ‘Save Image’ from the list. It will go to your photo library. 3. When you’re posting and are ready to use an emoji, look just below the dialogue box, and you will see a paper clip. Select ‘Click to choose files’. 4. Next, select Photo Library. Tap on the emoji you want to use. There will be a blue check mark beside it. 5. Next, check ‘Done’. The image will be loaded right beneath your dialogue box. 6. Tap the + sign, and it will now be part of your post. 7. Ta-dahhhhh!!!!! ENJOY!!!!!
  12. Both. Promoting and spamming it is against the terms of service you agreed to when yoiu signed up on this forum. So I do not recommend you do this. Your posts have contained serious doctrinal errors. So I do not recommend your book to anyone.

    Yes I do. I am extremely dedicated to God
  14. Praying for complete healing salvation etc.
  15. Welcome Hntr, a wonderful family you've stumbled upon. @mlbrokish there's a chat room here? How did i miss that after a month of being here? Lol
  16. I wasn't raised Christian all my life. If fact it all started in 8th grade. I was in a dreadful place but long story short I got saved by God at a Christian camp. My life has forever been changed since.
  17. Hi Joshua, and welcome! Christianity is all about forming a great relationship, first and foremost with Jesus Christ. If your relationship with Him is good, then you will know what to look for in all other close relationships in your life. A Christian never really completely gets over sinning, but sin loses its appeal; and the GREAT news is that when you put all your faith and trust in what Jesus has already done for you, God no longer sees you as a sinner. He sees you as righteous because you have believed in His Son. You are pardoned. Now you can worship "in spirit and in truth" because once you put your trust in Jesus, you know the truth-- that Jesus IS who He says He is, that He died for your sins and mine, that He was resurrected and lives again. You receive grace and the gift of the Holy Spirit to guide you. You will want to offer praise and thanksgiving! If all this seems too complicated or if you are uncertain, there are many here who will explain in greater detail. Start reading your Bible if you haven't already. If you believe, much will be revealed to you in the Word. May God bless you with answers to all your questions!

  19. Even though I've been on Worthy since April, at the suggestion of a friend, I thought I'd post my testimony of being saved. (Thanks @turtletwo) Growing up, I rarely attended church and sometimes Sunday school, and the only interaction with God was the same prayer our family said together before lunch and dinner. About 16 years ago (2003), our 3rd daughter was born and we moved to a farm about 20 miles from the church that I liked to attend. At that time, I didn't know the meaning of accepting Jesus as my personal savior. I remember listening intently at the end of a sermon one day, when the pastor asked us to bow our heads to pray. This is when he said to speak from our hearts and talk to Jesus, asking him to come into our life. I know I felt quite peaceful when I did this, but I didn't really know what it was to love and serve the Lord, so my life basically proceeded as it had previously. A short time later, I became quite busy helping my husband with the farm and he was annoyed that I was attending church when he needed my help, so I stopped going to church. For years, my life became busier with working full time with my husband, raising our 4 daughters (yes, another girl) and the regular household things. yada, yada, yada. I also became a very bitter, temperamental wife -- angry at my husband over silly stuff, resentful of him wanting me to work only on the farm, and frustrated with not understanding what I could do about it. Other issues arose with emotional and verbal abuse from my husband and a lot of fighting. Jump ahead to November 2015, my 92 year old grandmother passed away, and I was devastated. She was so dear to me (and many others) and I thought I'd never see her again. After a while, I put on a smiling face when talking about her, but my heart ached to where I almost felt sick. After a year and a half, March 2017, I started to wonder if Heaven was real and if there'd be a remote chance of seeing or hearing from her again. Well, as you can guess, the Holy Spirit was working hard to convince me to find out more, and I soon accepted Jesus all over again, only this time I felt different. I understood that Jesus is the only way to true salvation. I firmly believe that I have been saved through believing in Jesus Christ and his gospel (John 3:16). I have no doubt that Jesus is God, he came to earth, died on the cross, rose from the grave, and offers new life and forgiveness to all who believe. But wait ... After this new life, I thought back of some difficult times when I realized that God was with me, protecting, comforting, and guiding. One time, I was driving a pickup truck with a stock trailer on a multiple lane highway through a town (about 40 mph) when we went over train track and the trailer came unhooked from the trailer hitch. As the trailer crossed two oncoming lanes of traffic, I was panicking and yelling, but nothing I could do except watch it roll into a telephone pole on the grass embankment. Later, I told some bystanders that angels must have been helping, because AMAZINGLY, there were no vehicles on that stretch of street during this happening, NOT ONE, until the trailer came to rest on the other side. Also, our daughter born in 2003, was diagnosed at 8 yrs old with a fairly rare disorder where she developed a cancerous tumor near her spine. She went through aggressive radiation treatments, but the oncologist said there was a high likelihood that the tumor would reoccur due to it's location and chemotherapy was not an option. The doctors were delighted to tell us a few months later that she was in full remission with every trace of the cancer disappeared. I know now, the Glory is to God, as He was there all along.
  20. Welcome, adoptedwatcher. Thank you for the verse. It was exactly what I needed tonight.
  21. I have prayed for you. God bless you.
  22. Hi SeraTaru... Welcome! Journaling is a great way to record your thoughts. Sometimes we learn wheat we really think when we write. But how do you know what God thinks? There is one very reliable way, and that is to read the Bible. That's where you will find the story of His plan for your future. That's where you will find His best advice for every situation. That's where you will find hope and reassurance in the darkest times of your life. That's where you will find comfort and peace. That's where you will find stories of faith and overcoming hardships. That's where you will find what love is. That's where He will clearly speak to you! Perhaps an even better journaling idea is to read from the Bible first, and then write down your thoughts about what God was saying to you. How does it apply in your life, or what questions do you have about it? If you are seeking to hear from God, SeraTaru, you WILL. May He bless your search!
  23. Somehow I must have fallen out of the loop here on stats. Praying for you Noah. And a rapid recovery as well. God bless. Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  24. Welcome back Noah. Hope you can recover in relatively short order. I would assume you might have difficulty typing out messages, but perhaps I'm mistaken. God Bless.

    Hi guys

    Thank you so much guys for your kind words, I see the light of Jesus in you all. I want to share my story but not sure how many posts I need before I can do so. Jay
  26. Oh, Hntr, I am so sorry, and I am praying that God will wrap His arms of comfort and peace around you. It hurts so bad, but I praise God that Nick is with Jesus. Although he passed from this earth, he is very much alive in heaven! This separation from your beloved friend is tempory, and your relationship with him will be even fuller when God gathers us all home in His time. God bless you, Hntr. I will be praying for you.

    Hi guys

    Hi Jason. Welcome to Worthy. Nice to meet you Im so glad to hear you are turning to the Lord. Praying you will find the deliverance you seek. Enjoy the forums.
  28. Is there anyway we can be an encouragement to you? Welcome to Worthy, and God bless. Shalom, David/BeauJangles
  29. Welcome! Hope you enjoy the forum. So many nice people to meet and fellowship to be had.
  30. Thanks for sharing more about you. Sounds like your house must be full of life and activity!
  31. Hi, I'm 25 years old and I'm looking for a great relationship. How can a Christian get over of being a sinner?
  32. Praying for you and your wife. God bless. Becky.
  33. Hi all. I am writing this post to agree with the analogy George made in his welcome message. His analogy was about a party that deteriorates into a food fight. Great analogy, George. I suppose that some would say that if KimChi with Limburger cheese was being served that it should be thrown. But I agree that one can politely express that such a dish is not agreeable to the palate and move on to the next succulent offering. lftc
  34. After giving the original question a little thought, in my opinion Donald Trump has more in common with Caligula than John the Baptist!
  35. I was on highway 12 in Washington with my helmet and armored riding jacket on. The deer, (fluffy tailed rats, to funny ) two of them, a mother and her baby just bolted right out in front, had no time to react, just grabbed a better grip and kept the bars straight. It was a Goldwing I was on so it wiped out the front fenders, the front shelter and I’m not sure if it bent the front forks. But I have full coverage so AAA will ship the bike back home or the shop. But I walked away without so much a a single scratch, which I know to be the hand of God. 15 years ago I hit an owl and a few months later I hit a deer and than clipped another deer in my truck. But this is my first and Lord willing my last on my bike. Goldwing’s are expensive to repair so they might total it, and you know what that means, those new 2020’s are sure looking pretty sweet. Be blessed and safe if you still ride, in Christ, Not me
  36. Hello Willa! You're welcome! No problem at all, I'm Glad to help. May God bless you and watch over you
  37. Thank you Godismyloveforever! God bless you!
  38. Just out of curiosity, who exactly are the "Watchtower Witnesses" mentioned in your post?
  39. Shalom Shannon_017, Welcome to Worthy Christian Forums. Please feel free to browse around and get to know everyone. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. As soon as you post a few times and after they are approved, it'll tell us that you are "real" person and not a "bot", you'll be free to post throughout our forums and join our chat rooms. Forgive us for this minor inconvenience, however, we've had issues in the past with Spammers! This is a short tutorial video of how to get started with Worthy Christian Forums. As soon as you get out of Newbie status, you'll be able to add your profile picture. You may be interested in reading how WCF functions, and how the forums are set up, and other neat tricks to the forums. Read our insights into WCF. Let me share a little bit of my vision for the ministry in a parable. Let's say I'm throwing a big party and am inviting the world to the party (the forums) and I want everyone to have a great time, eating (reading through posts being fed), drinking (being encouraged to walk in His Word), and having fellowship with one another. In Israel, we have Shabbat meals -- and whenever you have 2 Jews -- you have 3 opinions -- it's GREAT to be opinionated. I encourage discussions ... but during our Shabbat meals ... we never ever get to the point in disagreements whereby food is being tossed and seriously yelling takes place! And if someone comes into the meal ... and starts throwing food ... and yells at everyone -- what do you suppose the head of the Shabbat meal will do? He'll escort those causing problems out of the house! Why? Because the whole reason for the gathering was to learn from one another ... to have a great time of fellowship! Some people like to constantly throw food and yell ... they won't last on Worthy ... because they missed the point of the party ... it's a prequel to the true party -- the Lamb's Supper! All I'm trying to provide is a place to allow true fellowship ... and discussions in love ... in the hopes it will be a catalyst for true REVIVAL based on REPENTANCE! I hope you have a blessed time at Worthy! Please REPORT any posts that you believe should be reviewed! We strive to have ALL members abide by our Terms of Service.

  40. I'm standing with you @love child Please Jesus, show your love and protection and your strength to cope with these difficulties. Amen.
  41. I want mine to be a witness. I havent decided which verse yet, but I plan on having a verse on mine, as a witness to any who see it. I got the idea after seeing someone with a large flat stone that had one of the psalms on it.

    Hell

    Your post is very long.God created hell. Let me give you a Christian perspective of hell. "Is hell real? Is hell eternal?" Answer: It is interesting that a much higher percentage of people believe in the existence of heaven than believe in the existence of hell. According to the Bible, though, hell is just as real as heaven. The Bible clearly and explicitly teaches that hell is a real place to which the wicked/unbelieving are sent after death. We have all sinned against God (Romans 3:23). The just punishment for that sin is death (Romans 6:23). Since all of our sin is ultimately against God (Psalm 51:4), and since God is an infinite and eternal Being, the punishment for sin, death, must also be infinite and eternal. Hell is this infinite and eternal death which we have earned because of our sin. The punishment of the wicked dead in hell is described throughout Scripture as “eternal fire” (Matthew 25:41), “unquenchable fire” (Matthew 3:12), “shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2), a place where “the fire is not quenched” (Mark 9:44-49), a place of “torment” and “fire” (Luke 16:23-24), “everlasting destruction” (2 Thessalonians 1:9), a place where “the smoke of torment rises forever and ever” (Revelation 14:10-11), and a “lake of burning sulfur” where the wicked are “tormented day and night forever and ever” (Revelation 20:10). The punishment of the wicked in hell is as never ending as the bliss of the righteous in heaven. Jesus Himself indicates that punishment in hell is just as everlasting as life in heaven (Matthew 25:46). The wicked are forever subject to the fury and the wrath of God. Those in hell will acknowledge the perfect justice of God (Psalm 76:10). Those who are in hell will know that their punishment is just and that they alone are to blame (Deuteronomy 32:3-5). Yes, hell is real. Yes, hell is a place of torment and punishment that lasts forever and ever, with no end. Praise God that, through Jesus, we can escape this eternal fate (John 3:16, 18, 36). https://www.gotquestions.org/hell-real-eternal.html
  43. yes, we are going to be rewarded according to how much of His nature have you allowed the holy Spirit to produce in you and how many people you have brought into the same reality to be more Christlike. He will not evaluate you based on the size of your ministry or how great your ministry was. He will evaluate you based on the size of your heart and your love for him.
