It says in 1 Timothy 2:4(God) desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
It also says in 1 John 5:14 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
So, why not pray for everyone to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth?
Europe has been hit by yet another terror attack as two Islamists stormed a church in Normandy, France and beheaded a Catholic priest before being shot dead by police.
The attackers entered the church in the town of Saint Etienne du Rouvray at around 9am this morning local time during mass before taking six hostages, including the pastor, two nuns and several worshippers.
One of the nuns was reportedly able to escape and alert authorities. After a gunfight, police announced that the...
The harmful teachings of the Word of Faith movement
Gigantic list of quotes from Kenneth Copeland (the largest list I personally ever found on the net)
how important is scriptural doctrine to God?
2 John 9-11
I hope mods don't think this post is too harsh but see the scriptural mandate...
I noted this fact here, but it bears emphasizing: the political and media elites are doing all they can to mislead you into thinking that the problem of jihad terror is not as large and urgent as it is. Even if the Munich killer turns out to be the deranged Breivikian of media fantasy, the fact that the BBC omitted mention of his Islamic name is suspicious in the extreme, and demonstrates that the media has an agenda far beyond simply reporting the facts. . .

There are many who do not understand the teachings of Jesus concerning humility, and why he told people to sell all their possessions, and then follow him, as we see in this verse,
Jesus said to him, If you want to be perfect, go away and sell your possessions, and give to poor ones! and you shall have treasure in heaven. And come, follow me! (Matthew 19:21 [ABP])
Is this a teaching that has become obsolete in favor of a modern luxurious and decadent life? First, before answering this, let...
The lake of fire, otherwise called Gehenna, or Hell, etc... all describe one place that will be a lava lake that will exist in the future on the earth. This place has been prophesied to exist by Isaiah,
"And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind." (Isaiah 66:24 [NIV])
This same prophecy was the one spoken of by Jesus Christ,...
"I have faith in God" seems to always be able to be translated in two ways:
1) "I have trust in God because evidence suggests he is trustworthy"
2) "I have evidence which I find compelling for God's existence"
Faith and evidence are closely linked.
In the first case, faith is akin to trust in God's abilities. This is wholly separate than faith that God exists. Consider the analogy that I have faith that my wife will come home on time versus the faith that I have that my wife exists.
I am greatly disturbed and at odds as to how to resolve this issue. This election in November has been characterized by American voter's as a choice between "two evils". Should Christians be voting in such an election ? Wouldn't we be voting for "Evil" in either circumstance ?...
I've heard plenty of CF members express their conviction to vote for one or the other of the candidates. I did the same a few weeks ago, but now as the election draws nearer, my conscience is saying NO....
"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."
How does this verse say that the Giants were the offsprings of the union between sons of god and daughter of men?? The verse states that there were Giants in the earth in those days and after that. The children of the sons of god and daughters of men are call men of renown....
