Faith in Faithless World

Recommended Posts

  Am I the only one who sees the lack of faith in this modern day age?

  All over the world, there is strife, anger and rebellious lewd spirits roaming about. America, our "Great Country" is getting closer and closer to becoming the modern day Sodam and Gomora, full of lust and pride. How have we become so separated from God? 

  When I was a child, nearly everyone was a Christian, not downing other people's beliefs, (even though they are worshipping false gods, and thats for God to judge). But Christ was the driving force behind this country's motives. Now money, power (the abuse of it), lust, are the motives of the people. 

  How do we combat this? By spreading God's Word, His Love, and His Message, even if it is in the most subtle of ways. God is returning to claim his true followers. I am not going to bury the coin, (the gift that God has given me), and wait for His return. I aim to spread His message. In truth and humbleness until boldness is called for.

Well said my friend!

Our goal is not just sitting around complaining, but we can hasten the return of the Lord (2Peter 3:12), by spreading the Gospel (Matthew 24:14) and with our prayers(Luke 18:1-8, Revelation 22:17, 22-20, Lord prayer), if we understand them correctly (Matthew 6:5-6)

So let's spread this great news, instead of just complaining!

God bless you

Thank You for the Warm Welcome! I am new to "Forums", so hopefully I am replying to everyone above. 

I just want to do more. More for God, I know He does not need me, but I know I need Him. And I know He has a purpose for me on His behalf, and I think I am finally taking the first steps toward what He has in store for me. Thank You for listening! Blessings to You All, in Jesus' name! Amen!

I cannot speak for others as I am unfortunate to say that I have come across those who only talk the talk, but do NOT walk the walk. Some of us are not afraid to preach the Gospel with boldness in a world where "professing" Christians are ashamed of the Gospel. I had to do a speech today for my brother who had just passed away. I did not prepare my speech ahead of time; but rather I let the Holy Spirit speak through my heart with boldness. I did NOT sugarcoat the message with preaching one side of the coin -- I preached on the free gift of Eternal Life through the precious blood of Jesus Christ; and the consequences of "rejecting" this offer of God's unfathomable love. I can assure you that the moment I mentioned what it would profit a man if he gained the whole world but lost his soul? I immediately got dirty looks because there were plenty of entrepeneurs and business savvy people who were living life for this world only -- and after its lusts and carnality. Now knowing this . . . if a person is not interested in the Truth after preaching to him/her over and over again; then forcing the Gospel down someone's throat isn't going to help. We have to use "discernment" in casting our pearls before those who will only use it to tear us to shreds; and I have seen this plenty of times. We are to use our time and talents "wisely" to those who have "ears to hear", and a heart to understand. Then pray that the LORD will open their hearts.

"Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. (2 Timothy 4:2)"

In Christ, *Pumpkin*

      I have this silly concern and constant worry about my decisions displeasing God. So many of my goals and things I want to do aren’t necessarily Christian based. I like doing things such as watching certain shows that have cussing and sexual content in them....but they are so entertaining....I’ve been told that even the little things I like to do, such as working out, is based on vanity. But I really just love working out because it makes me feel complete. I’m even a little afraid of getting in a relationship because of the fear of feeling something sinful such as lust or immoral thoughts. Back when I was younger, I didn’t mind these things much. But now, I’m at an age where I should know better. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I need to find an inner peace. God Bless.

      My friends, I need your help. I'll do my best not to make this too long, although it is a bit of a story.
      Back in October, I saw a need in my church choir and reached out to a guy that was relatively new and was essentially getting shunned by most of the other men because he has tattoos and his ears are pierced. I actually feel really bad because I waited for a few months after I felt the initial tug and I wonder if I would be struggling so much if I hadn't. Anyway...we clicked almost immediately and soon we were talking practically every day. We are very similar and deal with a lot of the same struggles, such as depression. We've opened up to one another on a level that I've only ever replicated with my two best friends of 13+ years and we can talk for hours without it feeling like any time has passed. He has quickly become a close friend, one that I greatly cherish. 
      My issue is this: I have developed romantic feelings for him, feelings that I'm pretty sure he doesn't return. He is in a relationship at this point and it's a relationship he said he has prayed for, despite that this girl has caused him a lot of heartache. It's hard for me to watch since I don't feel she is good for him and obviously I feel that I am. It's also hard because he is one that will ghost out on the people around him when he gets wrapped up in his own affairs. He doesn't mean to, he just has had really bad examples of friendship and I'm the first one that actually fights to keep him grounded. 
      So how do I maintain this friendship in a Godly way without letting my own bias get in the way and how do I move on from my feelings? If you need me to answer any further questions that might help give better advice, please feel free to ask. I have probably forgotten something in my attempt to keep this short.

      Those still dealing with the pain of church hurt and healing and separation from those who have justified it with sayings like "eh they were learning"

      This one is lengthy, almost 45 minutes, but I think it is worth your time. I found it fascinating and delightful, and should be encouraging and helpful to Christians. I was tempted to put it in the Bible Topics area, there is a not of Bible in it. However it is more of a testimony of the remarkable events of Corrie's life of how she came to be imprisoned in Nazi Germany for hiding Jews from persecution, and her experiences in concentration camps. Did you know fleas and lice, can be a blessing from God, and an ant can give you a sermon?
      There are lessons here, for any who might find themselves in persecution, (real persecution, not merely being ridiculed for your faith at the work place) to see how faith can see us through, should such events ever befall us.
