  1. King Solomon and His ring

    The bible tells us God was very displeased with Solomon's choice of following his wives into all kinds of idol worship. Which is exactly why God did not want the Israelite's marrying women from other nations because the temptation to worship idols was too great. And Solomon was certainly enticed to follow his wives who were into idol worship long before he married them. When he started the worshipping of idol's and following occultic practices, he ceased to have Godly wisdom. Because all that idol worship and occultic stuff is not of God, but of satan. 1 Kings 11 : 6 So Solomon did what the Lord considered evil.
  2. It's getting crazy

    I don't think the verse in Rev 16 is in reference to physical nakedness that the world sees and thinks about but symbolically and figuratively to our faith in Jesus as being clothed in Christ when we are in him, and he in us we are in perfect fellowship and righteousness. Rev 16:15 Is speaking more in the terms of having the nature of Christ for when we have his nature we are clothed. It is saying that as believer's we are to stay in perfect fellowship and not fall away and thus become spiritually naked. Galatians 3: 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
  3. Wow what an explosion!

    when one is not using bbq grills or stoves that use propane; all propane tanks need to be shut off at the shut off valve on the tanks themselves to prevent such accidents.

  5. Apologetics and defense of the gospel?

    Matthew 23 : 3 thru 7 But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others. The above is the meaning of hypocrisy and the very definition of it. In paraphrase, its the “do as I say, not as I do” and “practice what you preach” And Jesus condemned their attitude of pride and self righteousness. The religious leaders had created so many man made rituals that it was impossible to follow. The religious leaders expected others to follow, but yet the religious leaders themselves did not think they too needed to follow all the laws and rituals they demanded others to follow. None of this applies to old testament events that you mentioned.

    what bible are you reading from because scripture does not say what you are saying
  7. Apologetics and defense of the gospel?

    Your closest friendnt The Israelis were defending themselves against the oppressiveness of the canaanites which went to war against the Israelites. There is no disobedience or hypocrisy on Israel's part. I would like you to show me where there is hypocrisy concerning Deborah, Barak, and Jael. Deborah did not lie to Barak, and Jael did not tell Sisera to hide.
  8. Apologetics and defense of the gospel?

    Now Deborah, a prophet, the wife of Lappidoth, was leading Israel at that time. In chapter 4 verses 6 and 7 She was speaking for the Lord. She did not promise him she would go with him. She went because Barak asked her to. Where do you see the hypocrisy in this Judges 4 : 6-7 She sent for Barak son of Abinoam from Kedesh in Naphtali and said to him, "The LORD, the God of Israel, commands you: 'Go, take with you ten thousand men of Naphtali and Zebulun and lead them up to Mount Tabor. I will lead Sisera, the commander of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his troops to the Kishon River and give him into your hands.'"
  9. Apologetics and defense of the gospel?

    Whatever you ( Your closest friendnt ) had intended for your post to mean and say. . . did not come across as something brilliant and dazzling or even witty. It is a misrepresentation of scripture and of Jesus. It is extremely tacky and offensive statement on your part. 1 Corinthians 2:1 ( ESV ) And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom.
  10. Apologetics and defense of the gospel?

    Say what? this whole paragraph is nonsense. This is something an unbeliever would think and say
  11. Christianity v. Buddhism

    Prayer and relying on the power of the holy spirit is key and our greatest priority and confidence when sharing Christ with others. The holy spirit enables us to share Christ with boldness and real love that comes from Jesus. You want to share who Jesus is and what he has done for you.

  15. Christianity v. Buddhism

    Their own web sites say otherwise. He or she is indeed worshiping and glorifying buddha. Even though they try to hide that by using the word “venerate” which is latin for worship, adoration. The following are quotes taken from a buddha web page explaining who they are. “In order to express deep veneration, a Buddhist may bow or prostrate before the image of the Buddha, When a Buddhist prostrates before an image, he acknowledges the fact that the Buddha has attained the perfect and supreme Enlightenment. “ “millions of Buddhists pray to Amida Buddha, the Buddha of Infinite Light” They admit to it as long as the person reading is interested in joining or nods their head in agreement and pats them on the back. People that belong to a religion, become quite defensive when a light is shined on their religious doctrines and beliefs and their belief's and doctrines are exposed as a lie. They will defend it because they don't want to be seen as having been fooled and associated with a lie. So of course in their defense, they are going to tell someone that speaks against the lie that they don't worship a false God, (satan really ) in the hopes of keeping the person from exposing the lie itself. They see it as a personal attack on their character. And thus look foolish. We worship, praise and glorify God by acknowledging who he is and what he has done for us. He is our creator and our Savior. Buddhists acknowledge buddha instead of the Living God who is our creator. If we are in complete fellowship with God, our attitudes and lives will show it. There will be no doubt in the minds of others of our fellowship with Jesus. We don't need to know all the little fine details of a false religion to share Christ with someone who is caught up in a lie. Instead we share what the bible says is truth about who God is, and the sinful condition mankind is in and are in need of a savior. As we share who Jesus is, and how we obtain eternal life, the holy spirit will bring conviction into their hearts. It is not our job to convict sinners or prove to them they are a sinner. Instead we are to show the lost, what God's word says about himself and how we can know him and what to do to have eternal life.
