    Jeremiah 29:11.

    That is not always the case though. Sometimes the thread or replies tend to veer off from the intent of the OP so much that I think that replying would be useless as I've discovered to my dismay at another forum. But it's not the case with this thread. I believe that they're called rabbit trails.

    Jeremiah 29:11.

    Please do not take this as my being argumentative for that is not my intention. Instead I only want to understand what is being said or rather written here so please keep that in mind. Jeremiah 29:11 reads, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." In the commentaries that I've read the "expected end" is understood to be a good thing. I would like to understand how can this apply or even be so when there are those Christians that have suffered or even died for their faith? Much less those who are not having a very good time of it in this world? Thank you for your replies.
  3. I was online and saw a post (not here) from an evangelist that he stated that it is according to God's word that those in the ministry are not to make a living on spreading the gospel. He did not give his justification for this though. However, I believe that those in the ministry should be supported for doing so and 1 Timothy 5:18 does seem to support this. What do you think?

    Definition of Grace.

    What is the definition of "Grace" as given in 2n Corinthians 9:8 "And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work." Thank you for your response.

    Kingdom of God.

    Matthew 6:33 reads, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Just what is the kingdom of God?

    Wasted years?

    Then why does one minister who wrote and another whose sermon I've listened to refer to it as God's provision for the Christian who may have failed to provide for himself who himself had "wasted years"?

    Wasted years?

    I didn't see a sud-forum regarding the Scriptures so I'll post it here. I can't remember if I posted this here but here it is. In Joel 2:25 it reads that God will restore the wasted years. Does this mean that God will provide even when the Christian has wasted his life or wasn't able to make enough to provide for later and possibly any number of reasons that he/she hasn't/wasn't able to do so?

    Not a church goer.

    Do you believe that a person who does not go to church can still be a Christian and be saved?

    Grow in grace.

    Thanks!

    Grow in grace.

    I was listening to a sermon online over the weekend and I heard the phrase "grow in grace". It could have been "growing in grace". What does that mean?

    Waiting on God?

    I'd rather not say just yet if at all because it may be made light of. I'd rather not say just yet if at all because it may be made light of.

    Waiting on God?

    I've heard that we must wait on God to tell us what to do before we launch out to do whatever it is God wants us to do. Others have said something like "You can't steer a parked car." What say you?
