'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.
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.
Church of England to consider transgender naming ceremony
Yes I do. because I'm Catholic.
But my question goes to "Protestants". You'd prefer to be known as a Christian, I imagine. That your relationship with Jesus is the most important thing. You are a follower of Christ, so naturally "Christian" is the best label?
I guess the word "Protestant" has negative connotations, does it? You would also prefer your denom. specific label as well?
I personally prefer to be called Christian than Catholic. However I don't accept all Protestant theology, so I guess I have to be happy with "Catholic Christian."
I sometimes wonder whether God or Satan is currently in control of this world.
Let me give just one example: A famine in Africa. We’ve all seen the pictures on TV of people starving to death; even children. Now we could say that this is all man’s fault because if everyone worked together on the continent of Africa, it could be one of the wealthiest continents on the planet. Think about it – Africa has precious minerals like gold, diamonds, a desert area where sunshine could be turned into electricity, wetter areas to grow crops, wonderful beaches and game reserves for tourists, oil for fuel and so on. But instead of working together for the common good, we see corruption, fighting, barbarity in the name of a god called “Allah”, etc....
