'Two explosions' heard at Ariana Grande concert in Manchester
Some are saying they heard loud explosion and concert goers streaming out covered in blood.
Story is too early to corroborate this.
A good friend of mine (who is Pentacostal) has some very confused ideas about what Catholics believe. I mentioned to him that there are people who call themselves "Christian Wiccans" and believe that Mary is a goddess, and he said that it sounds like they've got some Catholic ideology behind them. I'm like, uh, Catholics don't think that Mary is a goddess. He said, "They think she's the Queen Of Heaven and the mother of God. So yeah, they kinda do." He thinks that, while Catholics don't actually refer to her as a goddess, she's given the same status minus the name. I tried to explain that Catholics DO NOT believe that Mary is an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent being and that there's a big difference between honoring Mary more...
This is another confusing one.
I'm constantly told that a demon is behind my thoughts and actions.
I just cant seem to grasp such a concept.
That I'm a utility for the demonic kingdom.
I'm born again!
If I share something with someone. E.g. Here look at this testimony of a Christian in a similar circumstance to you, I end up reiterate it twice.
Then the other Christian will say that's demons talking through you because I'm trying to control them?
I get angry and upset, someone will say its demons!
It really makes me upset when I hear Christians say "God said "xyz""
I have no way of trusting such claims in man.
God has never directly spoken anything audible to me and I've been born again since 2005.
Its always been an interpretation of The Holy Spirit in Faith.
The only "God said" I'm comfortable to hear is His Word, the bible.
What do I do when Christians say "God said "xyz""
Onetime I was told "God said He will kill me with holy fire"
It makes me hit the floor in panic!
Was on another thread about denominations and was going to post what I wrote below but realised it would be off topic so guess I'm starting a thread.
Is anyone else non-denominational but attending a denominational church? What makes you so?
I think all denominations probably have it wrong. I don't see any of us living the life of the early church. I think we are all of the world too much and we should all gear ourselves towards becoming more active in the community, spreading the gospel, helping each other more and actually serving. Those who can. Those who can't should be doing what they can... prayer is an important ministry too.
I think its time we should all be measuring ourselves against scripture and walking the way Jesus...
That's the question I asked myself at Church today. As the priest read the Bible" If you love me, you will keep my Commandments."
Obviously I don't . Otherwise I'd be trying harder to keep His commandments.
I don't know about other people, but I am going to work on this one. With His help of course.
I've honestly been listening to like an hour or more of Todd White videos on youtube per day for the past 3 months. I am very weary of popular preachers (Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, etc), but with Todd White it's different. He travels the world preaching in megachurches and I can honestly say that he preaches the full gospel with no compromise. I can see the love of God in his eyes and face like I've never seen on any human being before. Anyone else really like Todd White? Any thoughts on him?
Here's a sample video on Todd White if you don't know him:
The Church of England is still considering a transgender naming ceremony in the General Synod. The Diocese of Blackburn had already voted in favour of the motion and congregations have already begun recognising the ceremony of affirmation for trans* people. This is a way for Christians to affirm and recognise a person who is transitioning to match their gender psychology.
