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 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....
Hello. I was reading a Facebook story about a woman who almost died and claims to have seen her father with wings saying he was always with her and waiting for her when it was time. Immediately I thought of my poor dead mother with wings watching my sinful life. I know the verse about all tears being wiped away but that is after the end of the world... right? I am a baby Christian and am confused and mortified.
DEVELOPING: A large truck loaded with guns and hand grenades drove into a crowd of people who had gathered for a Bastille Day fireworks show Thursday in the southern French city of Nice, killing at least 70 people and injuring 100 more in a terror attack, officials said.
Regional president Christian Estrosi confirmed the death toll in a post on Twitter, calling Thursday "the worst tragedy in the history of Nice." Estrosi also asked residents to stay indoors immediately following the attack....
Do you find prayer repetitive? Do you loose concentration when praying?
Sometimes i rush my prayers without a lot of thought. This is wrong i know. I do try to concentrate but do find it hard.
For those of us who recite the Rosary (Please, no Catholic Bashing on this) i also get lost in the day etc when praying the Rosary.
I know this is all normal but i really do wish i could push aside thoughts of the day, of life and just concentrate on God alone!
Is this the same for you or not. If...
Did Isaac Newton matter more than Hitler? Could we not attribute more value to mankind to Newton than Hitler?
Did William Shakespeare matter more than Justin Bieber ever will? Socrates more than Snoop Dog? Abraham Lincoln more than Al Sharpton?
Is it true that some lives matter more than others? Would you trade the life Jonas Salk (cured polio) for that of Kim Kardashian?
How about serial killers like Ted Bundy? Does your life matter more than his?
Do Some Lives Matter More Than Others?
This question comes from the text in Hebrews 2:
9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
Now I understand that the Son of God was made lower by taking on flesh.
14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he[Jesus] too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is,...
