    -God. The Bible. Prayer. Street Evangelism. Non Denominational.
    I would like to see the Body of Christ come together as one. Our guideline must be the Word of God and it rightly divided. Of the 20 some Bible versions I have, I find the KJV to have the most depth.

  1. Brought up elsewhere here at Worthy, but posting here again for those who may not watch this 40 minute video: Thirteen Heresies in The Shack, written by Michael Youssef addresses 13 concerns with the novel and movie, and what the Bible has to say about them: 1. God the Father was crucified with Jesus. Because God’s eyes are pure and cannot look upon sin, the Bible says that God would not look upon His own beloved Son as He hung on the Cross, carrying our sins (Habakkuk 1:13; Matthew 27:45). 2. God is limited by His love and cannot practice justice. The Bible declares that God’s love and His justice are two sides of the same coin – equally a part of the personality and the character of God (Isaiah 61:8; Hosea 2:19). 3. On the Cross, God forgave all of humanity, whether they repent or not. Some choose a relationship with Him, but He forgives them all regardless. Jesus explained that only those who come to Him will be saved (John 14:6). 4. Hierarchical structures, whether they are in the Church or in the government, are evil. Our God is a God of order (Job 25:2). 5. God will never judge people for their sins. The Word of God repeatedly invites people to escape from the judgment of God by believing in Jesus Christ, His Son (Romans 2:16; 2 Timothy 4:1-3). 6. There is not a hierarchical structure in the Godhead, just a circle of unity. The Bible says that Jesus submitted to the will of the Father. This doesn’t mean that one Person is higher or better than the other; just unique. Jesus said, “I came to do the will of Him who sent me. I am here to obey my Father.” Jesus also said, “I will send you the Holy Spirit” (John 4:34, 6:44, 14:26, 15:26). 7. God submits to human wishes and choices. Far from God submitting to us, Jesus said, “Narrow is the way that leads to eternal life.” We are to submit to Him in all things, for His glory and because of what He has accomplished for us (Matthew 7:13-15). 8. Justice will never take place because of love. The Bible teaches that when God’s love is rejected, and when the offer of salvation and forgiveness is rejected, justice must take place or God has sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross for nothing (Matthew 12:20; Romans 3:25-26). 9. There is no such a thing as eternal judgment or torment in hell. Jesus’ own description of hell is vivid. It cannot be denied (Luke 12:5, 16:23). 10. Jesus is walking with all people in their different journeys to God, and it doesn’t matter which way you get to Him. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no one will come to the Father but by me” (John 14:6). 11. Jesus is constantly being transformed along with us. Jesus, who dwells in the splendor of heaven, sits at the right hand of God, reigning and ruling the universe. The Bible says, “In Him there is no change, for He is yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 11:12, 13:8; James1:17). 12. There is no need for faith or reconciliation with God because everyone will make it to heaven. Jesus said, “Only those who believe in me will have eternal life” (John 3:15, 3:36, 5:24, 6:40). 13. The Bible is not true because it reduces God to paper. The Bible is God-breathed. Sure, there were many men through 1,800 years who put pen to paper (so to speak), each from different professions and different backgrounds, but the Holy Spirit infused their work with God’s words. These men were writing the same message from Genesis to Revelation. If you want to read more about the place of Christ in the Scripture, read “We Preach Christ” (2 Timothy 3:16).
  2. Michael Youssef mentions Professor James B De Young at the 7:46 mark, who was a former friend of Paul Young's. Professor James B De Young wrote a book I read called "Burning Down 'The Shack' exposing "The Shack's "universalim" I thought it was fairly well done and prayerfully passed along several copies to others. This Shacks "Hell" has similarities to the lie of "purgatory" as believed by those in Roman Catholicism. More of my contention with the book "The Shack" is that it also opens the door for a sex change with God as a godess instead, (which Michael Youssef mentions) and in doing so I believe by proxy showing a transsexual god opening up the door for the transexuals among us to accept this univeralist false god of the shack, instead of repenting and believing on the Real God the Lord Jesus Christ... A large black woman, "Papa." (That's not my Godly Father!) And the Aisian (un) holy ghost Sarayu. (That's not the Holy Ghost!) Very heretical indeed...
  3. I felt he did a good job in the video. He really seems to have a heart to protect the flock of God, I wish more were like him. Great last few minutes too in warning others and pleading with us to "cling to God loves us so much, who gave us His all. The God of the Bible. The Triune God." "Don't be mislead by all kind of warm and fuzzy descriptions that does not fit His own personal revelation in His Book." (The Bible!)
  4. Matthew 9:37-38 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
  5. Trout looks good Angels, I'll have to get my kayak back out and go fishing!
  6. Thanks, photography is a hobby I enjoy. I have a EOS Cannon just a few versions newer than OOs with 4 lenses. To be fair, I've had a photography class, and studied and shot with a professional in the past. He had a "darkroom" in those "enlarger, developer, stop bath, fixer days." I started out with a Kodak Instamatic 126 camera back in the 70s, and would only shoot "black and white" film, as it was much cheaper to develop than color.
  7. Agreed! I've "witnessed" to many over the years! However, if one is newly Born Again in Christ and a babe, and does not know of their false cultic christ, within the content of that cultic NWT bible, this is not advisable they can overwhelm the new Christian, and greatly confuse them. 2Pe 3:16-18 (16) As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. (17) Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. (18) But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
  8. A few that God created that take to the air! Red-spotted Purple Butterfly: Honeybee on a Sugar Baby water melon: Seagull just over the ocean surface: Great Blue Heron: He squawked quite a bit after I took this, and flew off. They're really quite loud!
  9. Mr. Popple, when you get a chance, give this 33 minute video a check. Well worth your time, the link below points to it here at this website. 180 Movie https://www.worthychristianforums.com/topic/144278-180-movie/#comment-1724889
  10. Praying for Jacie's mom Kate, family, and others during this time of grief. My Condolences. Looking forward to meeting this sister in Christ one day. Part of Jacie's testimony: "...In my young mind I decided that this so-called God that my mom, sister and the Pastor talked about had abandoned me. Church meant nothing to me. I went through the motions of kneeling at my bed and pretended to pray. Pray? Who, me? Yeah, whatever. Pray to who? After school one day, I picked up that Bible and opened it up almost right to the middle and started reading. I was reading the Psalms. I came to the 23rd Psalm and reality kicked in. I re-read it, taking in every word. "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever." It was then that I started crying and told God how sorry I was that I ever doubted Him. As my sister and I got older, when something challenging happened, I turned to God. I prayed. I didn't always get an answer, sometimes I didn't get the answers I wanted, but I realized that God knows what was best for me and my family. He still does. God hadn't abandoned me, I had abandoned Him. Jacie "
  11. Continuing to enjoy the photos! Deserts, beautiful spring shots, roads, cats, and plants of all kinds. Adding to the Florida and Austraila ocean shots! On Visiting Ocean City MD, a sunrise. Same area, a fishing boat heading out.
  12. Hungry Howie’s Flavored Crust Pizza, Pizza Hut Pan Pizza. I like just about any toppings,(with the exception of the dead fish aka anchovies...)or none at all. We have tried a number of the flavored crust from Hungry Howie's, have yet to find one we do not like!
  13. Thankful for Vice President Mike Pence casting the tie-breaking vote! Hopefully some states will soon start blocking those funds towards Planned Parenthood soon! Babies killed by abortion in the United States since 1973: 59,383,106 Babies killed by abortion since 1980 worldwide: 1,451,536,050 What an atrocity...
  14. Some I took working with the night. Butterfly bush flower, held a flashlight above it to get this effect. Pear from our tree after a rain. Night snow in a snow storm!
  15. One my son took, "through the eyes of a cat"
