Hello, I just recently joined on here and I wasn't sure where to go. I grew up in a Christian home but did not go to church, when I met my boyfriend he started bringing me to church with him which is Pentecostal. I loved it there for awhile but I've been there for about a year and a half now and I feel as if I'm constantly being judged. I raise my hands I speak in tongues, etc but no matter what I feel like I'm constantly under scrutiny by the leaders. I love Pentecostal trust me I have never felt so alive before, but tonight at church I went to the altar and I felt his presence like never before and some of the leaders made other leaders listen to me as If I fake everything I do and then continued to talk about how some are not right...
I knew this doomsday prediction was a load of baloney, nothing happened yesterday. It's a shame, I was hoping Jesus's second coming was yesterday. But then again, the Lord did say that we wouldn't know the hour and there are still things that have to happen first. Like, finding out who the Antichrist and false prophet are...etc. So, it couldn't have been yesterday. But still, I was hoping.
I recently moved to a new city and I've been checking out a lot churches in the area and I'm curious why it is acceptable to dress like a slob at so many of them. People wear flip-flops, pajama pants, sweat pants, graphic tees that make them look like a billboard, athletic shorts, or shirts that actually might be parachutes I'm not sure. Stuff that doesn't even fall into the casual dress category, just straight up lazy slob.
Clearly it is not a money problem. Everyone has a $2-600 cell phone in their pocket they pay ~$60 or more a month for data, they can afford to go buy a collared shirt and some nice pants. Even designer stores have really nice clothes for ~$20-30 during their seasonal clearance sales which seemingly go on all year...
could this date be the start of the tribulations?
The idea was first put forward in 1995 by Nancy Lieder, founder of the website ZetaTalk. Lieder describes herself as a contactee with the ability to receive messages from extraterrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli star system through an implant in her brain. She states that she was chosen to warn mankind that the object would sweep through the inner Solar System in May 2003 (though that date was later postponed) causing Earth to undergo a physical pole shift that would destroy most of humanity.

Firstly, wondering why ANY Christian would believe the words of this woman, someone who is obviously deranged?
Secondly, why would you connect God's name with this fiction?
I'm wondering if the Holy Spirit still lives inside of believers who have fallen away. Does Jesus never give the Holy Spirit to believers whom he knows will fall away? Because, Jesus says in John 14:16:
"And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever"
so when we receive the HS he is with us forever. But, believers who have fallen away have either never been given the HS or it's still living inside of them. Those are the only two options. What do you think?
There are those, like me, who believe Jesus is God in flesh. Others believe he is the Son of God, a separate being.
This scripture would seem to suggest that I am right:
"Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and his name shall be called Emmanuel"
(which means, God with us). Matt 1:23 RSV
However, I suspect there is biblical evidence that I am wrong.
What do you think?
My jobs that is... I made 500, gave my mom 200 put gas in and she's mad bc I didn't pick my brother something up to eat...when I went out and she's mad at me.
I do get him something when he rides with me to when I drop my other brother off at work...
It just makes me mad because its like my mom is evaporating and she doesn't even care... She's sitting up there asking what my brother wants ... Saying, " oh u want that's that's fine ..I don't care" when I'm gonna be paying for it :/
Idk I feel so wrong like I should have gotten my brother something today
And been more inclusive ....
But my brother is 19 capable of working...but idk....I'm so confused...I feel angry because my money is leaving me so fast... I just want to scream and...
