  1. I love this response 😊 Thank you for sharing!
  2. Hi ElizaOC, I'm sorry you are feeling frustrated. I usually find for myself that the times where I don't feel like praying/don't want to pray are the times that I need to pray the most. God can handle your frustration, so it is ok to tell Him about it You are not alone in your feelings about the church. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a local body that focuses on the word, a relationship with Jesus, and serving as an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Don't give up searching, no matter how frustrating and hopeless it seems. They exist, and we need fellowship with other Christians. Maybe instead of focusing on the ways the church is failing, pray about God changing your heart, asking Him what YOU can personally do for His kingdom. Ask Him to remove your anger and frustration, and I promise you He will. Jesus said we must take up our cross and follow Him; set aside your disappointment, and pick up your bible. Keep looking for a local body that is following Jesus, and you will find one. Mat 7:7 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Mat 7:8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you... Will be praying for you... God bless
  3. Thsnk you for setting this all up! Lots of things to wonder... We don't know how old Adam and Eve were when Cain and Abel were born, but it seems it was before Seth. It also seems that they had other children before Seth, because Cain married someone! Maybe even had his own kids before Seth. Amazing to wonder exactly how many children Adam and Eve had during their lives. Also amazing how God knows each one.
  4. Praise God! Only a matter of time before Israel turns back to Him. Come Lord Jesus! Zechariah 12:10-14: “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. 11 In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves;14 all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves."
  5. Praying for you. Study your bible and pray without ceasing! May the Lord continue to fill you with His Spirit Walking with Jesus is a lifelong journey. Don't get discouraged if you don't see yourself changing! Trust in Him with all that you have, and He will prove faithful. Very important scripture to remember, when you are having trouble figuring out if God is talking or if it is you (happens to all of us!): Jer 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? Jer 17:10 I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings.
  6. Praying! Mat 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
  7. It took a few times of making the same mistake with men before I learned that I can only change what I do. The worst part about the whole thing was that they were without Christ, and I was very far from Him. My heart was hard and full of anger at what they did. Mar 11:25 "And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. Mar 11:26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses." If you constantly place blame on others, how can you forgive them? How can you come before God and say you are clean? God is very personal, and when we come to Him, He is only concerned bout what we do. They will have to answer for what they do, but that has nothing to do with me. I did not seek another relationship until I was right with God, and when I did I made sure to find someone that was also right with God. And we have been happily married for over three years

    Convince Me

    You say you have earnestly asked, but you have already written off the bible, which I'm guessing to you is similar to a book of fairy tales. If you have already decided in your heart that it is foolishness, I again repeat, there is no amount of convincing you that will make you see. Do you really want to know if God is real? Would you be willing to set aside what you think you know is true, and listen to foolishness? 1Co 1:21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 1Co 1:22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 1Co 1:23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, 1Co 1:24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 1Co 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. God has already "let you know" that He is out there. And even though you have chosen to ignore Him, He still loves you more than you can fathom. Have you ever read the bible, even to rule it out? It would seem a bit unprepared, if you haven't, to come onto a Christian website asking to be convinced, when you have not done your research. I do empathize with your perspective, as I was once in rebellion against God also. In order to even begin seeking God genuinely, one must understand that there is a problem with the heart. In case you have missed the news, the world is falling apart; not because of guns or racism, but because selfish sinful human beings have decided that they can be their own god, doing whatever they want, whenever they want, to whoever they want. Although you are living this way now, you are (I assume) not out murdering or stealing, which means you have decided that these things are wrong. You are still a sinner though, just like everyone else, who needs Jesus. It is impossible to fully appreciate and comprehend the good news if there is no knowledge of, or one is apathetic towards, the bad news. There are people dying for professing Christ. Literally, they are tied up with a sword held to their necks, being told to convert to Islam and they can live, although some are not given the option. Why on earth do you think that these people would choose death?
  9. Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, Rom 1:19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. Rom 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, Rom 1:21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
