I am a loner. The extent of my dealings with people are through the internet, and the very few friends that I have.
I do not talk to any of my neighbors, except for maybe a very few that I have known for years, and some that are just extremely outgoing. But other than that I mind my own business and keep to myself.
But every once in a while I come across really friendly kids that like to talk to me. This does not happen often, but it does happen.
Right now in my apartment building there...
So when chatting with Bob across the street, retired, (gay)
or the lady at the end of the block (gay), works in a hospital
supply warehouse, the new homeowner kitty corner (gay)
or my cousin (gay) with two grown boys in high school
celebrating her 25 year household this week,
is it my job to fix these "broken" people?
Do I decide all these neighbors are going to hell?
Should I mention it to them when we talk about
I mean with all the horrible things that go on in the world and how sinful people are, it's hard to see God as having a sense of humor. And most things that qualify for humor nowadays are (in hindsight) not really something to be laughed at yet we laugh anyway. But there is some good, clean humor and I imagine that nothing good exists in this world without having its ultimate source in God. Nowhere in the Bible does is even mention humor. So I wonder if humor is ultimately a human thing or...
I talk to other people and give all sorts of advice and fear that I myself am not saved. I am afraid of committing Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, apostasy (I came to Christ at a young age and had amazing supernatural experiences, then around sixteen became depressed, had doubts, and wondered if I had hallucinated everything since I have unconfirmed but a high likelyhood of schizophrenia.), or by cursing Jesus. That one verse about no one can say Jesus is Lord but by the HS.... and my brain...
So I was baptized when I was much younger (20 yrs ago or so, age: 15) and had a falling away of sorts recently. I do not believe a person needs to be rebaptized necessarily for having a "wilderness" period of sorts. But rather my question circles around this: My theology and denomination have changed since that day. I was baptized under a Baptist minister but now am Charismatic. Does a shift in theology warrant a rebaptism? I am trying to figure out if the feelings I have on the...
I have been tortured and raped by two men and a masculine woman repeatedly during my kidnapping. I feel that feminine women would not have hurt me that way. I feel that men designed my torture and that they knew everything that would happen to me and let it happen. I feel that if I become a lesbian, asexual, I will have peace in my thoughts. I feel that I will no longer be hurt by men and that even though I dont want to involve myself with anyone, it will heal my identity as a feminine...
I'm not saying actual possession or actual demonic activity is funny. But we can all think back to some portrayals of demons in movies or comedies that were hilarious. I'm not sure why it makes me laugh when someone says something like "I had a demon in me" or "I got a demon." Now obviously if they really do have one then that's not funny at all. But it seems when it comes to Hollywood and demons the demonic portrayals are just so absurd they are hilarious. We all can remember scenes of...
"And the LORD your God will inflict all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. And you shall again obey the Lord, and observe all His commandments which I command you today."
God's purpose for the tribulation (i.e., the seven-year, 70th week of Daniel) revolves around His plan for Israel and does not include a earthly presence for the church. Why? Because God's plan for Israel is unfinished at this point in history. When the role of...
Based on our current address, my child is zoned for a low ranking, underperforming, and dangerous school! After months of losing sleep trying to make the right decision, I chose to ask a friend (with an address zoned for a much better, safer school) if we could sign a fake lease agreement and get one utility bill in my name in order to get my child into this better and safer school. I am desperate for some Godly advice and Biblical counsel regarding this situation.
