  1. That's Right. I'm Back!

    Welcome back!!!!
  2. When Christians rage at each other

    Romans 14King James Version (KJV) 14 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. 2 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. 3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. 4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. 5 One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. 6 He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. 7 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. 8 For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. 9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. 10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way. 14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. 15 But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died. 16 Let not then your good be evil spoken of: 17 For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. 18 For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. 19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. 20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed are pure; but it is evil for that man who eateth with offence. 21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. 22 Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth. 23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. I've said it before. If people would just follow Jesus two Commandments, there should be no need to bicker about minute things. 1)Love God above everything else. Focus on God, making sure to follow him in your walk. 2) Do on to others how you would want them to do onto you. Give respect get respect. Live and let live. Leave Jesus authority to Jesus. Quit judging, condemning, insulting and possibly placing stumbling blocks before others, while definitely placing them before yourselves. Remember each individual will be judged on their own works (not speaking earthly works). It's not based on the works of others. My opinion!!! Stay focused on God!!! Be Blessed!!!
  3. The Spiritual battle is not our war. It is between Satan, his minions and God. Satan tries to use us (in the flesh) to win. To defeat us and God. However, if we are with God we need not fear, for God has already won. So we have been warned that the flesh/carnal things will be used against us. We should understand and accept that. But...... How we can do anything about the Spiritual forces of evil? We stay focused on/in God.
  4. what do you do when God lies to you?

    I believe it is. Sadly, I do get upset. Not because I want whatever the promise was, that is actually minute. It's more of how can I trust God if he does not keep his word? I value my relationship with him more than any worldly promise. However, this situation has put a damper on my trust in him. I don't completely distrust him, I know of too many of his great works. Which makes it difficult for me to understand why he would make promises and then not keep his word. (People are so going to misunderstand this and incorrectly judge me even more than they already do, but whatever. I don't worry about Man's view of me, they do not decide my fate nor salvation, nor my relationship with him) Most likely. Trust, patience and stronger faith. I have faith, that is what keeps me seeking him. Well that and the fact that he won't leave me alone (this is a great thing). My faith can be stronger, obviously. Patience I never was good with that. Trust...... I had what I thought was full trust in him, but since he has not kept his promises, my trust is not as complete. I know I fail him in that sense, but I can't understand how to fully trust when the promises are still not fulfilled. I appreciate your reply. Even with having limited information, you have given me things to ponder on. Thank you! Sorry if I have not fully explained myself.
  5. what do you do when God lies to you?

    Sorry, there may have been a misunderstanding in the way the OP is displayed here. The above was my Original Post. It actually was my very first entry here on worthy. As a member here knows, when you first come to worthy you can only post and not reply. So the only way I was able to reply was by editing my original post. So anything written after the first paragraph was in response to a few replies at that time. Once again thank you all who reply. I use it all to assist me in my journey.
  6. what do you do when God lies to you?

    I know whom the lies came from and that is why I asked my question. God knows exactly why I say he lied and he has yet to clarify or explain as to why. At this point it doesn't matter anymore. Thank you all for trying to help.
  7. Matthew 12:32

    People curse God, people curse Jesus, but to remove all traces of The Holy Spirit from one's person, will surely be an unpardonable sin. Not on God's part but at the individuals own choice and fault. A person will not ask forgiveness from someone or something that they do not care to. If they blasphemy against The Holy Spirit, and I'm not just saying ill words towards it, but genuine turning away/denouncing, they choose a life removed from God's grace. They choose to live void of God. God does not force any (free will), Jesus never forced any. It is all a person's choice. After death. I think what is being implied is that if a person can and does denounce The Holy Spirit in this life, they most likely won't seek God in the next life. So by their choice they can not be forgiven, because they will never ask. This is pure speculation on my part, because no one knows what happens in the next life. Plus I do not like limiting God/Jesus. I try not to, I fail at times tho. We have the judgement seat, and I believe there is another point where we get an opportunity to be 100% truthful with what God/Jesus already knows of us. Dependent upon our ability to be 100% honest with everything we have done will decide our fate in the next life. Again my speculations. John 8:47 (NIV) 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” Once again this is by choice. As the Pharisees chose not to hear God but trust in their own knowledge. Rejecting The Holy Spirit is not always an obvious choice. People do it even while they believe they are following God. Always seek God. Always stay humble. God bless!
  8. what do you do when God lies to you?

    God did reply using his written word. That's where the lies come in. He does not hold to his very words or promises. Satan is the father of lies and God is the creator of Satan. All wrong doing is allowed by God and can only prosper if allowed by God. I know what he told me and for 3 years now he has been a liar. It's not Satan it's God, father of Jesus, for he is the only one I did speak to. It is whatever at this point.
  9. Born again as opposed to born into Christianity.

    Proving one's self is not necessary. Not to fellow Man/Christian or to God. Let me elaborate.... First off I know many born in to their religion who think as they are taught and act as they are taught but lack the meaning as to why. They can quote you word for word scripture and still not bare Good Fruit. Most don't even realize it. If you try and let them know that they should check themselves, not with you but against the very words they know and speak and say they believe, they will lash out on you because to them you are the outsider, outcast or wolf. None of that matters. Your Salvation does not lie with Man's thought of you. Secondly, God does not need you to prove your worthiness to him. He is not looking for those who do things to prove themselves worthy (works as some put it). He is looking for those who will put away themselves and follow him wholeheartedly. Those who will open and empty themselves and allow God to fill them with his Will. If he called you, you are worthy. You only need now to allow him to do his "Work" in/through you. Continue to build that relationship with God/Jesus/Holy Spirit, that is most important.
  10. God might not, but the Devil sure will. Man, all Man/Men are fallible. The words mean nothing without the Spirit. It doesn't matter the words spoken/written. Devil can use scripture whether rewritten or as written. The Spirit is what will reveal the truth of God's Word. (Meant to be read in whole, not picked apart, pick it apart and it loses its context) God no matter how a verse or saying is phrased will through The Spirit make known God's direction.
  11. Book of Habakkuk

    Oh, how my mind wonders and ask the very questions Habakkuk asked? Oh, how I wish to understand why the wicked prosper? I don't wish punishment upon them, yet I do not understand why God does not teach them or show them how their attitudes or ways are harmful to others. Instead of teaching them, they seem to be blessed in their wicked ways.
  12. Got Questions?

    πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘!!!
  13. Forgiveness!

    Love this! Some people and some places try and enforce that you must 1st be forgiven before God will even see you. (At least that's how they come off.) I am grateful that a Minister explained to me differently and brought me to a church that taught forgiveness was already given. Unfortunately, a preacher there eventually began trying to enforce I wasn't forgiven and had to ask when they wanted me to. Thank you Mike 2. You have definitely made this a fruitful discussion. Much to review and process. I appreciate it.
  14. Forgiveness!

    I believe this is exactly the reason many hide from God. For 1) They think that God thinks or acts as Man does, then 2) They may be embarrassed, feel ashamed or guilt because of their own sin, so they rather stay away from God due to fear, knowing they have done wrong. I have pondered this question myself, because it does seem to contradict other scripture. I.e. Matthew 6:15.
  15. Forgiveness!

    Thank you for your honesty, not too many will admit. Thank you for your verses and link. Thank you for your verses. However may I pose questions that some have brought up to me regarding this. So does this mean a person does not have to forgive unless the other repents? Also, who do they repent to, the person they have offended or God? Thank you Gary Lee. I am learning myself that there is a process. I don't necessarily understand how or why some separate feeling from obeying. I believe both are needed. If one does not feel truly in their hearts how could they truly repent and mean it. As I said this is something I am learning myself. I am not knocking your process, because there is a process and The Spirit teaches everyone a bit differently (that personal relationship). Thank you again. Thank you Justin Adams, you always have insightful information. "What we feel is often quite misleading." This is true, however just speaking the words but lacking the heart, wouldn't that be false. (Again a question that was posed to me.) "God says forgive. Simple!" Maybe this is simple for someone who has a better understanding of scripture, or someone with an already developed relationship with Jesus. It's not that simple for a "babe". Thank you. Sorry for the late replies. Thank you all for your insight. It is much appreciated.
