  1. Hey Rob from Israel! Welcome aboard -- if you need anything just ask! God bless George
  2. Welcome Demi! If you need anything -- just let us know!
  3. I don't see it now! Does that work?
  4. Which border? Can you screenshot me?
  5. @enoob57 I see you added yourself! So cool! Now I know it works!
  6. Shalom everyone, We added a new feature, called Member Map! Go ahead, pin yourself, and meet other WCF'ers near you! You'll find the Member Map on the Naviagation Toolbar just below the LOGO. God bless, George
  7. Out of curiosity @Pierre , Do you believe you've come to a place where you NEVER sin?
  8. It says in the Word that we are the TEMPLE of God. 1Co 3:16 Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? 1Co 3:17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple. It also says we are a Tri-part being. 1Th 5:23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Now if you are a tri-part being and also connected to the Temple of God. The Holy of Holies the High Priest could only enter once a year -- to offer up a sacrifice on Yom Kippur. This is where the Spirit of God resides within us -- the Holy of Holies if you will -- and this is where YOU CANNOT SIN, for you have been BORN of God. The Outer Court, otherwise known as the Gentile Court, as unbelievers could enter. This would be your Flesh --or the Body -- as Paul refers to. This is where we do SIN and try NOT to sin as believers. But as Paul so eloquently stated, Romans 7:18-25 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. Now the battle is for the INNER COURT! This was the area of the temple designated for believers and in this comparison, it's like the soul of an individual. This is the battleground fought on a daily basis -- whom shall I serve today? Your brother in the Lord with much agape love, George
  9. The Spirit cannot SIN, but you in your flesh you continue to fight NOT to sin! 1John 3:9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. In comparison with this passage, 1 John 1:8-10 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. The exegesis of the passage, be you therefore PERFECT is connected to Deuteronomy 8:13 You shall be blameless before the Lord your God, How can we be blameless before God? It's the GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS given through His Son! 2 Corinthians 5:21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Your brother in the Lord with much agape love, George
  10. Just to give some context to the Mammon teaching, notice what Jesus said, Luke 16:8-12 The master commended the dishonest manager for his shrewdness. For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light. And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings. "One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own? Interesting passage ... make friends by means of your unrighteous wealth!
  11. The problem has always been how to speak TRUTH seasoned with GRACE. Col 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. Col 4:6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.
  12. Well when you have 70,000 members there's bound to be a "FEW" of em! Our hope is to LEARN from one another!
  13. This may be interesting for some! It's fascinating understanding from an MIT professor!
  14. Simple -- the reality sets in -- that we are all in the midst of an epic war of good and evil -- and saints learn what it truly means to lay down your life for the Kingdom's sake. Once a saint is ready to die for the Lord -- it's a whole lot easier to live wholeheartedly for Him!
  15. This was submitted as a news tip -- but the article was actually written in 2012. I didnt' pay close attention to the date! Forgive me! I'm locking this thread since it's not a current news story.
