Need advice on defending a friend of mine about to be homeless, kicked out of the local mission...?
I know they have no good reason for kicking him out, so, I plan on giving this letter to the director John Roy tomorrow... Need advice...?
Think It's a good idea...?
Oh, and the director and the mission organization claims to be "Christian", and the director John Roy, is also a pastor/preacher...
Here's the letter:
Dear John Roy,
I would like to know why Tyler Stephanich is getting kicked out of the Mission on the first of this next month please...?
He is my friend, and I wish you knew what that means, but, anyway, he is my friend and I want to know "why" he is getting kicked out...?
He is "trying" his best to get out of there, he...
Over the last two to three decades this term has been used to draw people into these churches because they don't want to be connected to a denomination convention for good reason, since really when you think about it there are no denominations in scripture, however that being said if a church hires a pastor out of seminary which is not found in scripture as well, the theology of that seminary becomes the denomination for the church that pastor heads up.
Basically everything that man was taught at his seminary, he will be beholden to as he instructs his congregation.
The important thing for each one of us is does the message we hear line up with God's Word? Also never put your trust in any man but in Christ our Savior and his spoken...
I don't really know what to say other than I'm about to give up on God because I feel he has not chosen me and I'm not good enough for him. No matter what scriptures I read and no matter what people tell me, for some reason it doesn't change my mind. I have kind of accepted the fact that I will go to hell. It's not a good feeling and I've been crying almost all night thinking about it. I wish I could be close to God but I don't think he wants that.
When I try and seek God...nothing. And then people tell me I'm trying to hard that's why or I have too high of expectations. Then I stop trying so hard and lower my standards then fall away from God. It's like there's no medium. It kind of feels like I'm being tortured for something I did in...
What are the important things to learn as a Christian?
I have very little knowledge of my own religion, which is a shame... So I want to know, what should I learn and what should I study?
For example, which Bible verses should I learn? What is the history of Christianity? What are the most important teachings of Christ?
So recently in a post in the theology section someone had asked "Why does God let people be born who He knows go to hell?" or something along those lines. I had said He knows all how we think He does. To which many thought I was being unbiblical in my views.
So lets see what you think. So when we say "God knows when you will die and where you will go!" does that sound to confusing? If He knows this before you were born then you would not really have free will at all since your scripted to die at a certain point and scripted to go to heaven or hell. Which makes no sense.
So my view is yes, He does know everything. He knows how we die and where we go. BUT... He sees all possible endings. Not just one that is "going" to happen. For...
