Hi my brothers and sisters. Can a believer become an unbeliever? If so how? I believed we can all fall away from believing and following God's Word because this is what the scriptures teach...
Can you know God and fall away?
1 JOHN 2:18-19
, Little children, it is the last time: and as you have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
, They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
What did they go out from? Yep you guessed it. They went out from the truth. The CONTEXT is that there is many...
Been christian for maybe almost a year or over, my memories fuzzy. It was really great for starters but overtime I've just spiralled into an unstable mess. The more I tried to get closer to God the further I got. Other people get saved and sure they struggle, but they always overcome, and their filled with joy and assurance, and many of them have more reason to be sad than me. I grew up with a silver spoon in my mouth, so I know I'm a spoilt brat saying this, but Seeing people like that feels like a knife on my heart these days. I'm happy others are being blessed, but I sometimes don't want to even hear other people testify, every time they talk about how good God is to them I just remember how pathetic I am and feel alienated. I've...
There are some simple terms that get thrown around in reference to accepting Jesus.
Justification in theology always means (Made right before God)
Sanctification is a little more complicated because this gets redefined by many conflicting theologies.
- Some theologies state that after initial justification, the human response to “Sanctification” is a Salvational factor
- Some theologies state this is a work of the Holy Spirit that occurs naturally as a result of hearing and believing the gospel.
- Some theologies purport that a true Christian doesn’t sin and are Sanctified upon Justification
- Some theologies call this perseverance and again link it to human response...
I have over the years here in the last few days hear the after morning pill called the abortion pill. The morning after pill is not the abortion pill, it is contraception...prevents pregnancy. Before you talk take the time to investigate. So here is the difference between the two
So I am imagining basically, that in Heaven: anything is possible. But if you are going to evolve, are you really going to pursue anything different to what you already had? I mean is the older the Evolution, not the better?
And for another thing, we are supposed to be ready for the Master: what is he going to find, if all you have done is evolve? Is that not beating fellow servants, over words that define something other than Creation? And is it not a talent unused, if nothing can improve it?
I fully understand that men have to be given over to delusion, if they will not praise God, but how are we to live with these self-same men, if we have no part with that delusion? The pharisee that prays "I thank you that I am not...
Do you think it is possible to be at peace while reading and watching things like the Harry Potter series?
There has been a debate about this amongst Christians for a long time.
I really enjoy Harry Potter and I actually moderate on a virtual Harry Potter experience website. I love what I do and it is something I am passionate about.
I feel at peace with it, but maybe it is different for everyone?
Please let me know what you think.
Thanks in advance!
I have studied both. I personally prefer HPT. Mostly because it requires the faith of a young earth creationist. It quickly separates the YEC vs OEC.
It also explains and debunks alot of the Big Bang cosmological theory.
It is not a salvation issue. It tends to increase ones ability to defeat atheists as the CPT uses similar dynamics as secular geologist model. Which they can leverage.
HPT has some wieght as they can not defend their comet theory.
I have some free thinking time. To ponder the subject. Wondering if anybody else has interest in the Megamechanics of the fountains of the deep.
As with many issues, people voice their support so long as it doesn't land in their backyard. The homeless shelter on their street, for example.
Another example is being against abortion but not adopting children, especially those from unwanted pregnancies.
I only know of one person to do it and he's one of the few people I can honestly say puts their money where their mouth is.
So, those of you against abortion, have you adopted? If not, why not?
