  1. All the more reason for church youth groups to run alternative parties at this time of year.
  2. Sorry I do not understand your title for this thread. Would you put it in simple English so I can respond to you.
  3. It is not a case of living with unforgiveness but a case of getting a situation/incident dealt with by God. Just as God only forgives when there is repentance so we only need to forgive when there is repentance. How do we then deal with any situation where there is no repentance and we ache because of the hurt caused by it. Like Jesus being crucified we hand the situation, the peoplem our feelings, our hurt over to God for him to deal with. I don't say this is easy, but it is far easier than trying to forgive someone who is unknown but has caused serious harm to a loved one.
  4. A far more impressive passage Mark4:41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” Think, you are in a boat being swamped by the waves and this man stands up and says stop. The wind and the waves stop. How would you feel? Releaved that you were not going to drown, but stunned, terrified, that this man, you know has that ability. Then he shows his command over demons. We do not apricate how shocking Jesus's control was to those arround him.
  5. How do you know that? Is that move inspired by the Spirit or by my desire for a better job, or to get closer to that pretty girl? Working out what is Gods plan/purpose for ones life is not as simple as step out in faith.
  6. Amazing someone here who understands that repentance is a vital neccesity before someone can be forgiven. This applies to God forgiving us and to our forgiving anyone who sat in our seat or anyother offence.
  7. Context is everything. This psalm is about the contrast between those who seek God and those who do not. It is not about sitting meditating beforeGod, but about faithfull service.
  8. You have no requirement to go back to someone who blames you for their violence. There are evil people, don't let false ideas put you in danger. Continue to pray for him, but don't meet him, not unless he has become a Christian and a minister known to your minister will vouch that he has learnt bto control his temper, accepts that he was at fault for ruining your marriage and is now sucessfully married. Untill that happens stay away from him.
  9. You are aware arn't you that only Christians claim to be sinners. Nonchristians deny that they have sinned. It is nice that you haven't pasted pages of scripture with no comment. That said you still have not address the fact that the bible says that Christians are sinners, that they still commit sin and yet unlike your thesis are not of the devil. 1john1:8-10:If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word is not in us. So are you a sinner or are you someone who does not know Jesus?
  10. You are not replying, just throwing scripture quotes which are meaningless. They are meaningless because you claim to be without sin. This means you are lying and are not a Christian. Why not try talking to me and responding to what is being said here.
  11. Yes some people are lonely and come to church for the company. There is nothing wrong with moving from such people if they won't follow the service, but do go back afterwards and talk to them. Even explain that you want to attend to the service. Is there a weekday womens meeting she could also attend? The ladies in our church have a monthly evening meeting where they meet for a meal and a good chat before settling down to hear a Christian speaker, us men are permitted to clear up and wash up. It is a great way of bring isolated ladies and those on the outside of church into church.
  12. Need an infallable church, where do we find one? The RCC is demonstratable not infallable, multiple pope all excommunicating each other at the same time, an inability to deal in a rightous way with abuse etc etc etc. The real need is for men and women of faith to seek to understand the scripture. Peter admitted that there are parts that are hard to understand. So we have to study it.
  13. Again Paul was talking about his current problems, not his past. He currently at the time of writing was doing Evil deeds. Finaly you quoye ascripture which like the one I quoted rubbish your whole thread.
  14. And how close is The Almighty Lord of Creation to those who hate him and are living a life that is opposed to all he stands for?
