  1. marriage advice from the 50s

    Give and give until you bleed. Then give some more. Never preached anymore. Always the ones I heard are about equal rights and taking what you can (in a nice way). Wives only respect your husbands if the internet says they deserve it. Children, do no revere your parents because you are in charge. Husbands, just keep bleeding until you collapse because you are probably a dead-beat dad anyway. State will nit-pick for inequality and make sure the social services mess with as many families as possible or else their budgets will be cut. Budgets that cannot afford a decent police force can afford shrinks to go prying for social injustice's lucre. Make sure the little boys are feminized and the girls are masculined. Ensure equality of purpose and force-feed evolution and alternative lifestyles to the kindergarten kiddos. Make sure every child is left behind in the dust of failed programs that are ever changing to keep teachers on the hop. Pretend 'religion' is not allowed in public schools because Judy and Janet would be offended.
  2. All Judgement

    The Gentiles Ask to Hear the Gospel 42 And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. 43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many of the Jews and religious proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. 44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming. 46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. 48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. 49 And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region.

  4. First Greetings to all

    Hello and welcome!
  5. Is the Trinity like 1/3+1/3+1/3=1?

  6. What age did the dinosaurs exist in? 

    "Terrible lizards" seem to be mentioned periodically in the scriptures. There is no reason that Noah could not have carried small ones on the ark. The so-called geological column is crazy since in different parts of the world, the column is seen in various orders. The evolutionists love to refer to the column but cannot explain upright tree formations that span the columns in various locations. Read Marco Polo's adventures. Some emperors had pet dragons. Mokele-mbembe has been sighted in the Belgian Congo. This is a swampy area about 1/3 the size of the US and mostly unexplored. https://creation.com/mokele-mbembe-a-living-dinosaur
  7. I am not surprised you are exhausted. I am just reading this. There are some great answers above for you to consider. If I were in your shoes right now I'd get a latte and go sit someplace quiet and warm and just chill out a little. Steve removed a YouTube link so you might want to watch a couple that I can suggest. But for now: 1) relax 2) you'll never be perfect so quit trying to be 3) calm your mind/soul with something really banal (not comics, not TV) 4) when you get negative thoughts, say out loud - OK here is another one for you Lord Yeshua (Jesus). I was once in a situation a little like yours. I saw/felt/knew just for a few minutes the Lord accompanying me on a walk in the English countryside. He did not say anything. He was just there. And he did NOT disapprove or anything like that. He just spent a little time walking with me. Then He was gone. I cannot forget that short while. It has stayed with me.
  8. Can everyone get saved by faith?

    Here is my ten cents. Salvation by faith. Faith is not a passive thing. Witness the Hebrews of old. Yahweh said anyone could be an Israelite if they performed the rites as they did and were adopted into the tribe by following the Commandments and Law. Doing and acting. So, think of FAITH as an ongoing actionable entity. Yeshua said, if you love me you will keep My Commandments. This can mean passively or actively. You will become what you believe and love. Initially, it may seem a chore. But by being persistently obedient to Him, it will become a habit that enriches your life. BELIEVE that Yahweh sent Yeshua into the world as a BLOOD SACRIFICE for the remission and propitiation of our sins and our sinful natures. So, in short Salvation is: BELIEF on Yeshuah; REPENTANCE of sin by CONFESSION of iniquity; ACCEPTANCE of forgiveness; DETERMINATION to follow His WAY in OBEDIENCE to His WORDS. (Iniquity means Lawlessness, or breaking God's Law). Warm fuzzies do not necessarily follow on. It is really a FAITH CONTRACT. It is an active lifestyle. It requires due diligence and ongoing OBEDIENCE; if and when necessary it will also require REPENTANCE.
  9. what would u say here?

    You do have a way with words... and well written posts too!!
  10. What is the Number One Sin of the Church

    Yes. You are so correct. We are in a sinking ship and the hats we are supposed to bail with are being filled with contributions. This further loads the boat. Rich and Sunk will be their epitaph. I tell you that churchianity has been so polluted with the vestiges of old rome (Babylon) that the very structure of all the lies continually preached to support it are a veritable straw-horse of imagined holiness. I know I am going to lead a very lonely rest of my days here. I just cannot abide all the crap. I went to a local charismatic meeting, hoping to sing a bit and worship - then preach started by mentioning Rick Warren. I had to leave before I got critical of the whole place. Really sad.
  11. Recall Notice.

    M. C. You have a kind heart and I understand your attempt at lighthearted and even humorous ideas. I am sure you have a very good idea of what this means to some by now. We often more readily say stuff on here due to safety. If we were face to face, most would be far more circumspect. Davida has some very good points as well, and technically speaking, I agree more with that take than the OP. Whatever we do and however we attempt to accomplish that, it will never be wholly acceptable to all of us at any one given moment in time. Thanks for the post and the ideas. I think that we are (of necessity sometimes) rather prescriptive and so sometimes the platitudes seem appropriate. Being sometimes poetic and at other times quite whimsical and obtuse, I can see that some people would like the blase approach. I do not favor this simplistic and comic idea though. For Chick Tracts, maybe. But for serious discussion - I do not think so.
  12. You probably know of the Pope's titles and that he considered himself equal to the Lord and even superseded the authority of God in some areas. The weird thing is that people went along with this - or were killed in the most horrible of ways. So I will now get 'blasted' as well as you and called a false teacher because I think believers have sold out to rome - and do not even know it. If you dare mention this, your body is metaphorically heaped on the funeral pyre awaiting torment.
  13. What is the Number One Sin of the Church

    Yahweh expects actions and not just words. Show your faith by you actions. Faith is an action word. You have to DO faith, otherwise it is empty. His burden is easy. His load is light. In a nutshell, the number one error is not keeping the Commandments and following rome's laws rather than the Law of the Lord. Rome = Babylon.
  14. Hello and welcome! Watch Stephen Darby Ministries on YouTube. He will give you a lift I believe. White or black, what you describe (believe it or not) happens to a lot of us. There is always an unseen spiritual component. In a very strange way (they call it paranoia) I have felt the brunt of much hatred and adversity. Why? Because of my DNA and my parents that I never met. Being half Israeli means that the unseen realm is ALREADY prejudiced against you. There is much more - but this is about you and not me. Check out Darby. He does not mince words. Most of civilization before the flood was just like you. Remember this little saying. Small minds talk about people. Mediocre minds talk about events. Great minds talk about ideals.
  15. Happy New year
