  1. Many people write books on the subject, but we have the bible and that's all we need, look at this verse. Ecclesiastes chapter 12 verse 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body. And look here if God wanted more written. John chapter 21 verse 25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written. Study the bible that's the only thing we have that we can take from the earth, that I know of. Matthew chapter 4 verse 4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
  2. Romans chapter 11 verse 32 For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. Romans chapter 2 verse 6 God "will repay each person according to what they have done." 1 Corinthians chapter 3 verse 13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person's work. Malachi chapter 3 verse 18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not. But Jesus said if you want to be greatest in the kingdom of heaven you must be servant of all. So God still wants us to show LOVE and MERCY.
  3. Romans chapter 12 verse 20 On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." (God wouldn't say that if he didn't want you to do it) Proverbs chapter 19 verse 6 Many curry favor with a ruler, and everyone is the friend of one who gives gifts. God will also reward you for all this, their must be some way they could help their enemy.
  4. I can't figure out how to mark something as I prayed for it, on you new prayer place. Thank you.
  5. The bible is a very complex book, not easy to understand after reading it 100 times, I've read it 2 or maybe 3 hundred by now. If you read it once it looks like it's all about sin, or lack of sin. I started reading the bible when I was 21, that was 37 years ago, now I study it 30 or 40 hours a week. Look at john chapter 8 verse 31,32 To the jews who believed him Jesus said if you hold to my teaching you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. In 1 John chapter 4 verse 8 and 16 It says God is love. Ephesians chapter 1 verse 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love And 1 Peter chapter 4 verse 8 Love covers a great many sins. Now can you honestly tell me your perfect like God, if you are it's only through love but I don't think anyone can claim that, because there's many verses that say everyone sins.
  6. Doesn't this make us Jews? Galatians chapter 3 verse 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
  7. I only know my experiences. 1 John chapter 1 verse 8 If anyone claims to be without sin they deceive themselves and the truth is not in them. James chapter 2 verse 10 If anyone keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. 1 Peter chapter 4 verse 8 Love covers a great many sins.
  8. I think of hate, because we all sin every day, many times.
  9. I wouldn't listen to a rapper about Christ, I'd study the bible, you'll get better answers.
  10. I'm just trying to add some way of getting help, if your in America you might call welfare, they may be able to add to your services, I know it's unfair, but if you've worked all your life sometimes your stuck. There's got to be other services around, it's just finding out how to get them.
  11. I believe it's when someone says something is in the bible, but can't show you, for whatever reason.
  12. It is a burden to a lot of women, I don't know what percentage are raped, but 1 in 5 girls are molested, I would pray and continue to pray. Also not everyone who says the have faith do. I try to read these verses every day they encourage me to pray. James chapter 5 verse 17 Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Luke chapter 18 verse 1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. James chapter 4 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. Isaiah chapter 62 verse 6 I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, 1 Chronicles chapter 4 10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request. Daniel chapter 9 verse 18 Give ear, our God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. Matthew chapter 7 verse 7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Ephesians chapter 1 verse 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 2 Kings chapter 20 verse 5 "Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of My people, 'This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. I will surely heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the house of the LORD. 2 Chronicles chapter 16 verse 9 For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war." Daniel chapter 6 verse 23 The king was overjoyed and gave orders to lift Daniel out of the den. And when Daniel was lifted from the den, no wound was found on him, because he had trusted in his God. Psalm 107 18 They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death. 19 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. 20 He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Isaiah chapter 37 verse 21 21 Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent a message to Hezekiah: “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: Because you have prayed to me concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria, 22 this is the word the Lord has spoken against him: “Virgin Daughter Zion despises and mocks you. Daughter Jerusalem tosses her head as you flee. 23 Who is it you have ridiculed and blasphemed? Against whom have you raised your voice and lifted your eyes in pride? Against the Holy One of Israel! 2 Chronicles chapter 16 7 At that time Hanani the seer came to Asa king of Judah and said to him, “Because you relied on the king of Syria, and did not rely on the Lord your God, the army of the king of Syria has escaped you. 8 Were not the Ethiopians and the Libyans a huge army with very many chariots and horsemen? Yet because you relied on the Lord, he gave them into your hand. 9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to give strong support to those whose heart is blameless[g] toward him. You have done foolishly in this, for from now on you will have wars.” 10 Then Asa was angry with the seer and put him in the stocks in prison, for he was in a rage with him because of this. And Asa inflicted cruelties upon some of the people at the same time. Isaiah chapter 45 verse 19 I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacob's descendants, 'Seek me in vain.' I, the LORD, speak the truth; I declare what is right. 2 chronicles chapter 12 verse 14 He did evil because he had not set his heart on seeking the LORD. Jeremiah chapter 29 verse 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Proverbs chapter 30 verse 5 "Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Psalm 118 8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans. 9 It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. James chapter 5 verse 13, "Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise." Ephesians chapter 3 verse 20 Now to Him who is able to do infinitely more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, Matthew chapter 21 verse 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." James 1 chapter verse 6 But he must ask in faith, without doubting, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. Proverbs chapter 3 verse 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; Hebrews chapter 13 verse 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Deuteronomy chapter 31 verse 6 Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid or terrified of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." Psalm chapter 9 verse 10 Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not abandoned those who seek You. 2 chronicles chapter 13 16 The Israelites fled before Judah, and God delivered them into their hands. 17 Abijah and his troops inflicted heavy losses on them, so that there were five hundred thousand casualties among Israel’s able men. 18 The Israelites were subdued on that occasion, and the people of Judah were victorious because they relied on the Lord, the God of their ancestors. Psalm chapter 108 verse 12 Give us aid against the foe, for the help of man is worthless. Psalm chapter 60 verse 11 Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless. 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 verse 17 pray continually, 2 chronicles chapter 33 12 In his distress he sought the favor of the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his ancestors. 13 And when he prayed to him, the Lord was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord is God.
  13. 1 John chapter 2 verse 2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. Matthew chapter 9 verse 13 But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners." James chapter 2 verse 13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Luke chapter 6 verse 32 "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. When we're able to help, without putting ourselves in a bad position we're to help, we're called to share, not have investments, Jesus also said you can not serve god and money. all we have to do is share.
  14. John chapter 8 verse 31,32 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." I listen to the whole bible about every 2 to 3 weeks, the more you study the more you learn, don't leave it to the pastors to teach you the bible says nothing good about pastors. And studying is the only way to know what's true.
  15. I've read that 80% of people who go to church have never read the whole bible, 11% have read it once, 9% continue to read it. Romans chapter 1 verse 28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. Some people say that verse is talking to gay people, but it doesn't say that. This is just an example why I don't go to church, if only 9% are reading it, what kind of Christian fellowship is that, and I can study the bible for 2 hours if I don't go to church.
