  1. This was written to the Christian. This confessing is not salvific. It's like when Jesus explained his deciples didn't need a bath just to wash their feet. Conversion is different.
  2. I agree that the sin to be repented of is relying on ones own righteousness, or guilt over sin as if those things ever saved..We are to turn away from US and rely on the finished work of Christ. A " sinnets prayer", a date, feeling sorry are not strong evidences of salvation. What you are saved by is what you are kept by. And since Jesus says He's the only one whose hand a Christian can never be plucked from it is Christ who saves and He who keeps. Even Satan believes in Jesus.. Repentance is more..it's a reliance on the imputed work of Christ who has made the Christian a new creation and sealed with the holy spirit for that day! Christ is the only anchor that does not fail; the only foundation that survived the storm. Don't build you house on sinking sand. Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song This Cornerstone, this solid Ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace When fears are stilled, when strivings cease My Comforter, my All in All Here in the love of Christ I stand. In Christ alone my hope is found, He is my light, my strength, my song This Cornerstone, this solid Ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm. What heights of love, what depths of peace When fears are stilled, when strivings cease My Comforter, my All in All Here in the love of Christ I stand. In Christ alone! - who took on flesh, Fullness of God in helpless babe. This gift of love and righteousness, Scorned by the ones He came to save Till on that cross as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied For every sin on Him was laid Here in the death of Christ I live. There in the ground His body lay, Light of the world by darkness slain: Then bursting forth in glorious day Up from the grave He rose again And as He stands in victory Sin's curse has lost its grip on me, For I am His and He is mine Bought with the precious blood of Christ No guilt in life, no fear in death, This is the power of Christ in me From life's first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny No power of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand Till He returns or calls me home Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
  3. God used plenty women in the Bible.. He had to because in those situations like in Judges, Barak would not obey the Lord to his vocation. Barak didn't get the glory of that battle if you recall as Deborah said. He basically said, Deborah I'm too scared to go alone come with me and I'll go.lol... and Jael was the woman , again, God used to kill Sisera. Where men are not obeying God to follow their vocation to lead, God rose up godly women as a judgement. God made men leaders and women helpers. Why is this offensive?
  4. I used to have bad acid reflux and took ppis and zantac. For me, in my own self care I got off the meds, changed my diet and use probiotics. I'm good now. Again this was something I decided.. I'm not advocating for anyone to take what I've said and drop meds without your Dr knowing. Tc
  5. We don't "celebrate" as unbelievers do. We are challenged to look back at 2019 and reflect... And recall Gods faithfulness, grace, patience. Reflection on opportunities we had to obey and didn't, reflection on how we might be more faithful in 2020. I can glorify God in anything and everything. 1 Corinthians 10:31, NLT: "So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Col 2:16 Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath
  6. For me and my family we do not believe God is graceless or less honored by celebrating Jesus birth when we do around winter. Just in my personal studies Jesus was actually born in a house type place. back in that time the house was separated between livestock and ppl. They were abiding in the lower rooms with the livestock possibly. And when the Wiseman were led to Jesus he was at least already 2 from various studying I've done. We just bring glory to God by showing the world period.. you don't have to wait for a holiday either. Our reasonable service that brings God glory is to be a daily living sacrifice. It's just that to the secular world they follow holidays and we as Christian's can use this to use as an opportunity to share Christ. For some reason even unbelievers even go to church on holidays and we have opportunity to share the gospel.

  7. I agree with all you've said ty for sharing! Additionally, I would add Ephesians 2:8-10 our faith, grace, salvation are gifts from God. So if any person lacks faith let them ask of God because one cannot change ones own spiritual condition- dead in trespasses.. but in Christ, from Christ we are given life. Welcome to worthy chat!
  8. Np thx for letting me know!
  9. Not sure what you mean..I'd never advocate my children to marry a relative... Technically we're all related by Adam and Eve 😂 but no, we have no one there we are "related" to.
  10. I always tell my oldest she's not allowed to date anyone she doesn't intend to marry. Also, she's 8 so lol she has no interest in boys... Yet. I told her there would come a day when she would like boys. She's already mapped out her life to me rofl. Early college in HS graduating with her AA, BA in nursing/ or Dr, Marriage. I plan on guiding her decision for who to marry as I plan to with all my children. I jokingly told her I found a nice boy from a respectful Christian family for her to marry. He's very sweet and just a few yrs older! 😂 Plus, if I could pick my in-laws thad be rad! In all seriousness of the topic, I advise my children 1. They must repent and trust Christ- afterall marriage was designed to bring God glory and it represents Christ's love for His church-the bride. 2. Never marry an unbeliever- figuring that out will take wisdom and prayer.. so I suggested watching how young man X treats his mother, for he will treat you that way. Date with intention to marry but date over a long period to see a person's true colors. Try to marry within your church. I pray God gives us/ them wisdom when that day / if it should be pleasing to God would come. Not everyone is meant to marry. Tc GB
  11. I have had this and knew immediately I was under spiritual attack. I was consciously aware that I was asleep and couldn't move or speak so I prayed and God removed the darkness of that dream, protected me and woke me. I've had other experiences same thing but I was able to walk around my room- saw a book flailing it's pages wildly and walked into something demonic. Words were appearing on a wall and disappeared after the words were written. These were not just dreams. They were an attack. I haven't had one in years but the best thing to to is pray and cry out to the Lord to shield you and wake you. Just my opinion.
  12. The church we attend ( husband and I) holds holiday events in the church itself, so no one is left out. However, I'm sure our pastor meets with a selection of few who he confides in alone as well. I'm not offended at all by this, because I know our pastor needs just as much uplifting spiritually as I do. He spends all week biblically counseling others 10 hrs + a day. He also travels to other churches outside the USA and ministers, as well as preparing sermons etc. I'm glad our pastor has devout church members in his life to keep watch over him and aid him and his family when rest , counseling for himself is needed. I'm thankful he does not get burned out because of those faithful close few who are spiritual help and physical help to him by giving him and his family vacation time etc. Maybe you could just ask the pastor yourself since God tells us if we have something against a brother to go directly to them and reconcile then come back to worship. You could always offer to help set up in your church where it would house Everyone. Tc blessings
  13. We drink bottled water because our water main is under construction in the city ,so we're always on boil alert. I am picky about the brand since cheaper labels and even more expensive contain more arsenic than others. We stick to aquafina or disani .. here's the link by consumer report https://www.consumerreports.org/water-quality/arsenic-in-some-bottled-water-brands-at-unsafe-levels/ No clue if the Hebrews boiled but they did add alcohol to purify their water.
