    going to hell

    agreed That doesn't sound like good news.

    going to hell

    Just so I'm clear, by His Presence do you mean the bible or something you sense?

    going to hell

    I think that says it best, it just is what it is. We know that God is perfect and all He does is just and right and we have to trust in His plan, the Lord Jesus, but obviously we aren't seeing the whole picture. I know your feeling lonely and struggling sister, I just tried to reply on one of your posts but my internet crashed and I lost all I said, but in short you need to recognize your in a spiritual struggle and you have an enemy that's keeping you pinned down, demons/curses, are real. You probably wont learn much in your church about spiritual warfare but there's a few good resources online, Wen Wirley(not sure how to spell his name) is a good one on youtube. Remember God chastens those whom He loves. You'll overcome as long as you stay in the fight and keep your eyes on Jesus(He's overcome for us). But you have to start taking the fight to the enemy and understand the devices he's using to keep you down. Praying for you, chat me up anytime. God bless, Philippians 1:6 (KJV) 6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

    Well you've taken the time to write all these things, and I respect that because it shows you care, but I think your wrong. I think having others in our lives is a fundamental part of the Christian walk, this is why there's all those love one another verses, I don't think it's an extra bonus to have Christian friends but necessary for our growth and strengthening. Solitude may be necessary for periods of time in order to have a more intimate relationship with God but I don't think a person can have proper solitude when they are isolated, like myself. My point is i've been looking for these social resources you speak of and in I don't know how many different churches and have come up completely empty handed. I know the tendency is to blame me and say I didn't look hard enough or I'm being difficult and there's nothing I can do to get people not to think that but I'm telling you all that all these social systems and churchs, at least in the USA, are in apostasy and can't help me. How esle could I have spent so much time in so many different churchs and not have any loving one another going on. If you think you know of a group of people that are actually following the scriptures and loving one another then please share it, I don't care where it is in the US, I'll contact them.

    You depart from God instead of evil, you said you run from Him and push Him away, because you are angry with Him and not fearing Him. At least you understand your prideful and full of self righteousness, you got that right, you think you could do better at this salvation thing than God, that's why your angry with Him. Your wise in your own eyes because you don't fear God, it's very common, your all turned around, you need to understand what sin has made you, God is against you for thinking the way you have, on the verge of destroying you, fear Him while you still can and repent(turn from your sin). Romans 11:22 (KJV) 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

    Job 28:28 (KJV) 28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding. you have it backwards, which is a good sign your in a lot of trouble, plenty of reason to fear, if you don't have any I think it's a prayer The Lord will hear and respect.

    I'm sure you meant well but this just made me feel worse. In the 16 years since i rededicated my life back to Christ I haven't had a Christian friend or family member try and stand by my side and comfort me or deciple me or whatever, anything, there were small groups and bible studies but nothing ever beyond boring surface stuff, nothing close to what i'd call friendship, or even open to it. I understand the logical conclusion is it must be me, but I'm just trying to go according to what the bible says and find a group of people that are doing the same, and i just can't find anybody. I'm sure it's just me, I'm some kind of freak that's hard to relate to i guess.

    Also i've been on this site for years and have yet to find a person that would like to chat on an some kind of ongoing basis...ya know like an online friend...not hear or at a couple other christiand chat sites i've been on for years niw. So whats up with that? Are my expectations wrong? If you'd lime to private message me i have no problems with that, i'll get back with you as soon as i can.

    I should mention that i rededicated my life to Christ 16 years ago and have searched diligently for a church that follows the scripture but i've had to move around a lot and have yet to find a group of believers to fellowship with. I know i'll get a lot of flack for it but i'm convinced that the vast majority of the churches in the usa are apostate, asleep, in deep heresy or something where they are not what they should be, and yeah i know theres no perfect churches but they should at least rry to stay biblical. I honestly believe this is the end and tbe church has fallen away just as the bible predicted.
