  1. My apologies to you Kwik. I based my response off of your post and that is that is the way you came across as sounding. Was never my intent to offend you or to come across as though I am judging you. You made your point. Sorry again. I realize I am in the minority here so I'll try to be more careful to keep my opinions to myself. Blessings.
  2. I understand that Christ was not born in December, some estimates are more like September. It wasn't okay for the RCC to change the pagan holiday of Saturnalia into Christmas ("Easter" may actually have more roots in the celebration of Passover than pagan gods). So my answer to your question is two wrongs don't make a right. Just because something wrong has been done in history, are you saying that it's okay to repeat that wrong with a different pagan holiday and that God isn't going to mind? Are you seriously condoning the celebration of a man-made holiday and trying to inject CHRIST into it to fit your human reasoning and perspective and justify it as being okay with God? Are you a Christian? Seriously?
  3. Hi Kwik, below is what Remnantrob posted in the Controversial subheading under a separate Halloween thread. Something for you to think about and decide if you want to continue to conform to the ways of this world. Blessings to you! Remantrob said: Participation in Halloween customs may seem innocent fun for children and adults, but it is one more way Satan can use to deceive people into thinking there is no harm in playing a little bit with the world of spirits and demons. Since many people no longer believe in the existence of a personal devil and his demons, they feel there is no harm in making fun of these “religious relics of the past.” The children are taught that there are no such beings as witches and evil spirits and that it is fun to dress up as ghosts or goblins. The modern denial of the existence of Satan and demonic forces is clearly contrary to Scripture. From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible affirms the existence of Satan and demonic spirit beings. In the education of children, it is important that we do not plant false ideas in their minds. The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it”(Proverbs 22:6) To teach them that there is no harm in imitating evil spirits is contrary to God’s will. The above comment was written from a brother from my church and I couldn't have said it better. When I was a kid I use to be jealous of the other kids being able to dress up and go out and get candy but now that I'm older I understand the reason for my parents firm stance and have used the same training for my kids. It's not easy considering the entire US seems to celebrate this day but it's possible. My plan is to try to give my children a history of what October 31st was originally known for (when Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church). I believe the devil hated that and has used Halloween to slowly and successfully take everyone's mind off of that event. Interesting that next Halloween is the 500 year anniversary of that event. Just my 2 cents.
  4. Indeed and Easter too! I personally don't decorate for Christmas - haven't for the past several years for my own reasons. The difference with Christmas and "Easter" (Resurrection Day to me) is that there is an actual Christian connection - CHRIST's birth into the world and CHRIST's resurrection from the grave and victory over death! There is no connection to CHRIST in Halloween, in fact it is the polar opposite. Bottom line is there is no good argument for a Christian to celebrate the dead! You can masquerade it all you want behind pretty pumpkins and pretty dress up clothes, and not wanting a child to feel "left out" but I am sure God Almighty does not find it amusing in the least. There is another Halloween thread under the Controversial subheading that has a couple good comments from others (last I checked). You can do as you personally choose to do in your life. Are you asking yourself if what you are doing is pleasing to God?
  5. I think you are missing the mark with your comments. Why not just treat it like an average typical day then rather than trying to turn it into a Christian day to celebrate something that isn’t Christian? If a church wants to have a fall festival then why don’t they do it on a different day? Like the weekend before or after Halloween? You make it sound like the unbelievers hijacked the day from God and Christians have to take it back from them and make it a Christian celebration. Why are Christians choosing to celebrate on that particular day in the first place if it means nothing to them and it’s all just silly fun and games? By participating in the celebration in a “Christianized” way you are still acknowledging that October 31st has some kind of special significance. You are debunking your entire theory of “taking back from evil a day God made” by making it more special than every single other day He’s made. To Christians it should just be another day on the calendar.
  6. I don't usually make too much out of predictive articles, but there appears to be some truths considering the recent events in the Middle East with Syria, Russia, the US involvement, etc. Interesting to say the least! http://www.breakingisraelnews.com/76487/war-gog-magog-happening-eyes-middle-east-europe-says-rabbi/#vHw5VgC6xicXPEFW.97
  7. Welcome to Worthy! It's nice to have you here.
  8. Hello and welcome to Worthy. I am a bookworm too!
  9. Hehe and I can advise you on all things food! I love to cook! I could actually spend a lot of time on this thread posting recipes! I have a cookbook and recipe collecting fetish.
  10. I agree, I personally do believe in a literal 1,000 year reign of Christ, despite what the denomination I was raised in says (and one of the reasons I now regularly attend a Bible church). This is why my original question was asking for anyone here at Worthy who does not believe in the Millennium (Amillennial) to "attempt" to explain their reasoning for that belief. Not getting at bites so that tells me a lot. It's not a very popular belief.
  11. That sounds awesome, I love chocolate mint. I never thought about combining flavors. You just gave me several ideas. Thank You!
  12. This is a must try recipe. I make it all the time and you would never know it is made with avocado. Seriously!! I have fooled several people who had no clue! THIS IS DELICIOUS!!! Ingredients: 1 perfectly ripe Hass avocado (not too soft or overripe) 1/3 cup of lowfat milk or unsweetened almond milk (unflavored) 1 tsp. vanilla extract 4 Tbsp. baking cocoa powder (do not use the extra dark type) 3-4 Tbsp. Agave nectar (to taste) [or 1/4-1/3 cup sugar substitute (Splenda?) or real sugar if you prefer] Peel and pit avocado; cut into pieces and place into a food processor or high quality blender. Add all remaining ingredients and process for 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy, and pudding consistency. Scrape sides of processor bowl and process again. Refrigerate until chilled. Yield: approximately 1 1/2 cups. My notes: I have great success with my Ninja processor and have also used my Magic Bullet too. If using real sugar, it needs to be dissolved in a very small amount of hot water so it is not grainy. Recipe can be easily doubled, I do it all the time.
  13. Correctomundo! Probably the worst translation there is (other than the "Queer" bible - the LBGT translation they created)

    Hello

    Welcome Saved08, your life-walk resembles mine in a lot of ways. I used to think of myself as the poster-child for brokenness, but after learning a little about others here at Worthy, I can't say that is true anymore. We all have trials and rough patches in life but we must persevere and stay strong in Jesus Christ. No, it's not always easy but it is doable. I encourage you to take the time to go to the Testimonials thread and read some of the testimonies people have written, then evaluate your own life and you might just discover that you are actually very blessed in a lot of ways. It's great to have you here!
  15. Hi Jesse, glad to have you here! Stay strong in Jesus Christ.
