I have a question about the gift on singleness. If someone with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength loathes the very idea of being without a spouse from the blackest and most heartfelt depths of their soul, will God force them to be single their entire life? Will God give that person the gift of singleness though they hate it with a venomous hatred that cannot be put into words that would do it justice in the English language? Would God force this upon someone even though it would mean psychologically torturing them and will leave them with bitterness and rage toward God that will cause them to be unable to follow him in any functional effective manner? Would God do this even though it would severely damage the relationship...
I will clarify a name I prefer to call my Lord whom most of you know as Jesus Christ. I call Him Yeshua and know Him as my Messiah. The reason for calling Him by His Hebrew name is because of the abuse and misuse that the English name Jesus Christ has received. It is like curse words out of many people’s mouths today and I want this not to happen in your mind when you read this thread.
I know that Yeshua is one the Hebrew pronounciations of His name and most likely what He was called His whole life. So please do not let it trip you up as you read Yeshua in the place of the English name Jesus Christ. That is one thing I do not want your mind to battle over.
Hello all. I have a hard time dealing with people when they are mean and rude to me. I get upset whenever I feel that someone is upset with me. I just recently started a call center job, and I have gotten cussed at and talk to any kind of way, and I just tend to hang up when customers starts cussing. I am just losing my tolerance with people who act like that. Is this normal, I do I need to build up my tolerance? Its just this happens to me all the time, and I have had enough of it this year.
I mean I know that He loves humanity in a general sense because He gave us His Son so we could have forgiveness, but I'm asking does God hate "some" people on an individual bases because of their sin and hatred for him ? (Esau ? )
People who have blasphemed The Holy Spirit and have no chance or even a desire for redemption and people who worship the Beast and take the mark of the Beast does God hate them ?
I'm married, im just 20 years old but a few months back while I was representing my university in gymnastics my wife was raped and almost left unconscious. Its been like the hardest moment for me to feel so hopeless while I was so far. But now my life just splat down like [bless and do not curse][bless and do not curse][bless and do not curse][bless and do not curse], shes pregnant and I can't even begin to feel my self. We are pro life, so abortion is off the table. We are thinking of keeping it but cmon how do I even tell my parents this, Im lost and Im young and too dumb to even partake in this. I mentioned adoption and she says she will resent it. I need someone older with experience in this because I really have no idea. My mind isn't here and I cant think straight.
WHO'S SIDE ARE YOU ON?
LESSONS WE ALL SHOULD LEARD FROM THE PAST..
It is amazing how those that do not have God's WORD to support their traditions that break the commandments of God accuse those who have God's WORD of things that are not true.
The religious teachers in the days of Jesus said that he had a devil and his followers were a cult this was also independently verifiable in the days of Jesus and the Apostles. Just ask the Jews who hung Jesus on the cross.
This could be said of all those who followed Jesus throughout time even before Jesus the religious teachers of the day killed the prophets sent to them by God to share God's WORD to WARN His people about backsliding into sin *LUKE 11:47; MATTHEW 23:31
Stephen was stoned to...
What do you believe about Christians committing willful sins of lawlessness? Here is a Statement from Martin Luther: "(For those in Christ) even if we were to commit murder and adultery 1000 times a day it would not separate us from God."
Do you believe as Martin Luther whose statement evolved into the OSAS doctrine, or not? Can someone be assured of salvation if they willfully sin like stated with no repentance? Are they still the "elect"?
I am not perfect, Sometimes, I fight with people, That's why I'm so quiet, It's not that I don't feel love in my heart. But, I am a person who has always felt a draw to conflict. This may make me unperfect, But who is perfect?
My current situation is, I'm arguing with a man, Who claims to be a prophet, He speaks about UFO's And aliens, at a paranormal forum, I can give links and let you guys see if you want. Those people there Are not Christian. However, I have come to care about that community. This prophet, This false prophet, He posts videos like this,
Now this man has proclaimed many prophecies about Ufo's coming and the rapture, I'm not debating whether the rapture will happen, He gave a prophetic date for the rapture...
"The severed head of a wolf that died about 40,000 years ago has been found in Siberia, and because of the freezing conditions, the remains are so well preserved that the fur, teeth, brain and facial tissue are largely intact.
Pavel Yefimov, a local resident, discovered the head last summer on the banks of the Tirekhtyakh river close to the Arctic Circle in the region of Yakutia, according to the Siberian Times.
The head was handed to the Science Academy of Yakutia. Researchers there sent samples and measurement data abroad and with help from colleagues in Japan and Sweden determined its age as approximately 40,000 years, the news outlet said.
Footage provided to Reuters TV by the academy shows the head of an animal, visibly bigger...
In another thread, Grip Docility and Keras were having an exchange regarding the Star of David. Which I am beginning this thread, accordingly, on The Star of David.
Please post your comments, if you have anything to say about the Star of David.
For myself, what i thinking about, in Revelation 14, the mark is not just a mark but the mark of his (the beast's) name.
Before becoming the beast, the person will be thought by the Jews to be messiah for a while before he betrays them - which the messiah is code named "David my servant" in the bible. In particular in Ezekiel 37.
I am wondering about the possibility of the star of David (or a modified version thereof ) being the mark of the person's name - either the code name (David my...
