  1. The truth is spoken above. The US is the world leader and trend setter so to speak. It kinda set the standards to which most of the world tend to emulate and she tends to use political and strategic methods to enforce the liberal standards that is being rapidly pushed into the forefront, some of which you mentioned. It is all from the devil domain and kingdom of darkness and wickedness in high places and so we must not forget that. Men are used and manipulated by the unseen forces to do the work of satan and as we read the bible and see the warnings and the prophetic things told, believers has to "keep their eyes on the ball" or see events unfold as written in the word. More and more people are adopting the beliefs and agendas being pushed forth by events planners and social clubs to promote liberal lifestyles, where once were though to be sacred. The last ten years has showed major changes to society and the question to be asked, " what is the future generation mindset on creation and God going to be ?" Already, the learning institutions has deleted God from any thoughts and only science is being promoted as the future of man. Wait, who has the last word. If people really has the discussions with their children in an open dialogue, many would find that God is now a myth and science trumps all other thinking.
  2. Not taking away anything from the scripture you quoted and it is Jesus own own words. In the scripture verse below, Paul was asked the question directly and he answered in a straight forward manner. If anyone knew the answer to that question, you would think that Paul, the man who wrote all those epistles would have it sorted out. I think, while repentance is a grace that is available to believers when we sin and do wrong in the sight of God, it is the word "believe" that is the active word that makes that qualifies the requirement to be saved. Yes, believers would have to repent all their lives at various times as we still sin at times, no matter how little or often, then "true 'repentance is the way back or seeking to be forgiven. If Paul had deliberately left out the word "repent", then the doctrine of salvation would be in question. Acts 16 King James Version (KJV) 29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. 32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
  3. Ah yes, Alcohol, one of satan's deadly devices to draw him to his den. There is a saying I read somewhere that says you can cut a tree down in many ways. One with a chain saw, the other with an Axe and then you can dig around the root of the tree slowly, eventually it would just need a push for it to fall. Satan is in no hurry, he perseveres in his mischief's and those who think they can win with alcohol limitations are playing Russian roulette. Ask those many here who have been in the dungeons with the addiction and are now free. Then again, I know some who would only puff a cigarette once in a while or only when having drinks. Those are the very select few. Each to his own, but only to warn that the bottle has led many to a dismal life which they could not let go because of it's stronghold. Eighteen years since I have not touch the poison, and so glad I did. Don't miss it one iota too.
  4. Fear the Lord and listen to his wisdom. It's all the protection you would need. Believers don't need a crutch to hold on too, when they have the greatest general of all watching and guiding them, that is if you believe. Psalm 1 King James Version (KJV) 1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
  5. Yes indeed, all those who WILL live Godly SHALL suffer persecution, as it is written in the word. There are many troubles that satan the arch deceiver and abuser comes to trouble the saints and they come in various ways, some seen and some invisible to others. We are to run the race with diligence and perseverance and all the above you mention, keeping our lamps lit. Nice post and the pic depicts in a simple way that the believer life here is to stand firm on the word against all the odds. 2 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV) 10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
  6. Don't forget the "through him" part. It emphasize that salvation is only through Jesus and no man can have access to the father unless he is born again. Hence, when we pray, we ask it in Jesus name. Any correction or thoughts on this anybody. Ephesians 2 King James Version (KJV) 18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Ephesians 2 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC) 18 For it is through Him that we both [whether far off or near] now have an introduction (access) by one [Holy] Spirit to the Father [so that we are able to approach Him].
  7. Every organisation and institution has some type of rules or protocols that is established to be observed . This is no less for individual Churches that usually has a statement of faith that states its beliefs and biblical values. The Church is foremost a place to congregate to worship God, who has set about guidelines as for his flock to follow. Are we now obligated to stoop to the those who reject the teachings of the word and be sympathizers to their lifestyle that does not match up with the word of God. No, we don't have to. There is much more in this story that we are not privileged to hear and therefore cannot be so condemning of the Church stance. For instance, why was the son not transparent at the very beginning, he would have gotten his answer be fore any cancellation ect. Satan is determined to force his way into the Church and so a precedence can be set, it only takes the first instance and the bandwagon starts. This has nothing to do with sinners as such, because we all are such . Some choose to uphold the sanctity of God holiness, while others choose to play with fence and sit on both sides. Choose today whom you will serve.
  8. Are there any other such words you can add to make a list, so when I see them I would start running . Ha, ha. Your statement is just silly.
  9. I forgot to add the scripture verse to make the point. 2 Corinthians 4 King James Version (KJV) 3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
  10. You read your bible about prophecy, about the days of Noah, about Mystery Babylon the great and her great ability to corrupt and lead men astray, about lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life. Now, the assessment of why Church growth is falling and men turning away from God as to the Church itself is each to give his verdict. The world i.e more advanced countries has become richer in its goods and the ability to produce in abundance has increased tremendously. Man has never had life so good as today. So, why then is there a need for God, when everything is at the door and science is advancing at a rapid pace with inventions in medical, transport and learning through the internet stunning . So why do men need God, this is what the God of this world is seducing men to believe and is doing so successfully , even starting to convince many that there is no gender. Yes, there are some Churches that is promoting a false narrative of what the gospel is and many for lack of discernment has fallen into the alms of those who have come up with schemes to attract men with their false doctrines ect. But is the Church and believers to lay the blame or be the scapegoat of why men run from God and heeding to his word. I don't think so. See, many really don't understand how the devil works and has only thinks of the physical space that they can see and live in. But the spiritual realm is where the real battles are being waged for souls of men and we have to remember that God is in control. God can change any situation to his favor if he wants in a blink, we all know that. You the believer has to do what you are called to do and only you in your part of the world know your watering hole and backyard. How each is able with strength and resources is his opportunity to be a part of the commission. Each has some kind of gift no matter how small and the Lord would be the helper along the way. Just do your part.
  11. I have one, but have not touched it in years and would not have the new roads ect. Google maps is excellent. I take a few minutes to configure the options, like toll roads, highways ect. This is important as it can save you time and less hassle. I look for major intersection and kinda try to memorize where they are, so when the map voice commander is speaking out the coming exits ect, I know by bearings as to where I am at. To find locations very quickly and accurately, if you have the postal code or zip code, just enter it and it will point you in the right location, it never fails as no two zip code are the same.
  12. Had to give you a thumbs up their frienduff. Yeh, many forget where the battle really is being waged and though the players on the physical front are the flesh and blood placements, it's the ones that we cannot see that are the rulers of wickedness in high places. Might add, as one of my bosses use to keep drilling on us. "keep your eyes on the ball", and get your head out of .. add the rest .
  13. Even when walking upright and in good standing with God, disaster can strike in many ways. How you continue to walk in those times will be your test or trial. Anyone in the bible that come to mind.
  14. In reference to the thread and its topic, the verses below describes what is given to us when we become born again believers. Acts 2 King James Version (KJV) 37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
  15. What bible verses gives clear understanding the meaning of " tongues" ?. What are the specific verses I can look up .
