    Is there a better way to 'do Church'?

    Look at the mainstream. Even with FREE YouTube, they give you 8 minutes of an hour long sermon with a link to buy the rest, or books, DVDs, MP3s, all for SALE. Why would a ministry need to fly around the world with YouTube and the internet? Why should they live in million dollar homes? Why build a $400 million building? They have their reward. Beware of the mainstream, they will make merchandise of you. 2 Peter 2:3 (KJV) And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. Original: ἐμπορεύομαι - Transliteration: Emporeuomai - Phonetic: em-por-yoo'-om-ahee - Definition: 1. to go a trading, to travel for business, to traffic, trade 2. of a thing, to import for sale 3. to deal in 4. to use a person or a thing for gain In other words, they'll gladly take your money. See, if God is in it, He'll supply all their needs. Study George Mueller. He ran 120 orphanages in the UK without a single sermon or uttering a word to man for help. He prayed only to God, his El Shaddai - literally, God's breast as in a mother supplying all the child would ever need to succeed. Romans 8:32 (KJV) He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

    1 (Luke 10:7) and 2 (Mal 3-10) are biblical. The rest are just a business, which is prophetic (2 Peter 2:3).
  3. Luke 21:35-36 (KJV) For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

    anxiety and doubt

    Check out Dr. Caroline Leaf on YouTube. I'd paste the link, the mods would move it to some unknown location on this site without a link to it, losing its purpose for posting it. Anyhow, she's a brain doctor and researcher - and a Christian.

    Why Faith?

    Your definition of "faith" is incomplete. Faith is trust, confidence, or strong belief in something - evidence not withstanding. Without evidence you still believe a plethora of things. In fact, your mind fills in the blanks everyday. Watch Mind Games on Netflix if you want to understand. Biblical "faith" comes with evidence. But in order to believe something, you first have to be teachable to the facts. However, the real question is: how many facts do you need to believe? People come on these sites making salacious claims such as you did just to stir up the pot. As to the slippery slope, you're in over your head and you don't know that because you are already filled with misinformation. You're just a pawn in this war, and it is a war. And in war, there's disinformation. To find the truth, only YOU can find it once you start looking for it, that is why you listen. If you don't, well, ignorance is bliss until the bill comes due. Then you're exclaim, "Why didn't anyone tell me the truth!" So, the choice is yours. Do you want to know the truth, or are you just board looking to trip up the seemingly fatuous tribe?

    Need advice

    Simple answer is "no." John 10:27-30 (KJV) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one. Furthermore: John 14:6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. That means there's NOTHING you can do to earn it. Jesus paid the price and nothing you do will every win God's favor. Believing in what Jesus did (dying for you as a payment for your sins) and recognizing your inability to be perfect (because we're all born with disqualifying sin) and call on Jesus to save you like a man in the ocean hopelessly drowning is the only way. Joel 2:32 (KJV) And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call. Romans 10:12-13 (KJV) For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    Book of Genesis

    "Let there be light" is energy that's everywhere. In fact, 100% of the visible world is some frequency just as a voice makes sound waves. In fact, the light is all things visible, and the darkness is all things not observable with our natural senses. This is an image of "Let there be light": The white band in the middle is where all things visible sits and what we can see with our eyes. Everything in the universe that exists has a frequency because God spoke them into existence. I hope this helps.

    I knew you'd reply like that which is why I chose the words I did. You don't seek the truth, only to be right.

    I don't want them to trust translations, I want them to trust God. Translations are sufficient for sure, but they're not inerrant like the originals. The fifth word (in Hebrew) is not translated correctly in the KJV. I'm not against the KJV, I use it as my English bible, but there are so many misunderstandings (even anti-Semitic) teaching from within most of the English translations. But that's another convo. When you learn the originals, you see the issues.

    Honestly, it's not worth it. If you can't understand now, nothing more I say will help you understand. Think about it and you'll understand if you are willing.

    Again, you're mistaken, and anyone who speaks a different language understands that. That is a fact of linguistics and you're offering an erroneous opinion.

    Yea, that's just plain wrong, but you're entitled to your own opinion. I'm not going down a version debate, but you... yea, well, ...
