I have a lot of problems in my life. A lot of depression and loneliness. I have decided that I want to attend Fellowship. But at the same time I don't want to attend Fellowship, for fear of rejection.
I feel like writing letters to a lot of the churches in town explaining my situation. I am disabled who struggles with anxiety and phobia. If I attend church all they will get is my problems. I don't have any spiritual gifts to offer anybody. I am also developmentally delayed. And I am extremely depressed. But I don't want to share this with anybody because I don't want somebody to think that all I'm just trying to do is get attention. But at the same time I want to cry on somebody's shoulders. I just want to tell somebody that I feel so...
I'm so disappointed in myself! I had with the help of God sworn off this specific sinful behavior and was doing so well with it (I wasn't even tempted to disobey and give in for so long) and the devil somehow someway got into my dreams two nights ago and made me dream of it and then when I woke up I was so in the grips of it that later I found myself doing the same sinful thing again without even thinking. Ugh! Satan got me good this time and I'm so mad at myself for not arming myself against it like I should've and not immediately thinking to pray (which has worked before) to get myself out of that temptation. Why did I do so well with resisting before and not this time? It feels like Satan knew that I was doing well and decided to...
I hope this isn't a stupid question but I ponder on this question. Why does God form someone, if he knows that person will reject Him and end up in hell or become a killer for example Andrei Chikatilo, who ended the lives of 50 something people. God knows us before we are brought to this earth, knows our innermost self, and knows what our choices will be or will make so why bother forming them in the womb? The bible says that the majority of the people in this world will be in hell, and only a few will find heaven. That's a sad truth, yet God created us knowing we have that potential of falling away from Him.
I noticed with much displeasure that one of the female worship leaders at Hillsong has shaved her head.
Now to many of you this may seem to be nitpicking and touching on a peripheral issue; but I assure you that it is important to the Lord.
First of all, there is Luke 16:10. He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust (unrighteous) in that which is least is unjust (unrighteous) also in much.
This female worship leader is unjust in that which is least, as we will see that the matter of long and short hair is of importance to the angels and therefore the issue must be observed strictly according to the scriptures lest we be a stumbling block to them.
Therefore to the leadership at...
After 2 major incidents in one year in the UK people are fed up with radicalised Islam and the bloody mayhem that it spawns wherever it raises its ugly head.
Muslims continually protest to me that Islam is better than this and these guys are rogues. But are they telling their own people this? If they are they seem deeply ineffective at the task.
So why aren't Muslim leaders doing more to stop murderers of children and innocents?
Why aren't they telling the radicals that move amongst them and are often known to them that their ideology is sending suicide bombers and those who promote them straight to hell.
Manchester attack: Salman Abedi named as bomber by police - BBC News
“MULTIPLE CONFIRMED FATALITIES at Manchester Arena,” David Leavitt wrote on Twitter Monday. “The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.”
I find this a fascinating subject; what has inspired me today is this: What Is the Abomination of Desolation?
I do not agree with every thing said in this video but it is a starting point for a conversation.
There are two parts, the abomination and the desolation
Using the info provided by UCG, the Greek king orders the Jews to stop keeping the Law and to do things the Law forbids; this was repeated during the inquisitions when people were forbidden from keeping the Sabbath; I expect the Law of God to be forbidden again. But is God concerned with what the Pagans do, or is the abomination to do with the Jews abandoning God.
In the example of the Jews rebuilding the Temple and practicing the Law in the superseded manner that denies...
By far the three largest nontrinitarian churches are The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ("Mormons"), Jehovah's Witnesses and the Iglesia Ni Cristo, though there are a number of other smaller groups, including Christadelphians, Christian Scientists, Dawn Bible Students, Living Church of God, Oneness Pentecostals, Members Church of God International, Unitarian Universalist Christians, The Way International, The Church of God International and the United Church of God.
The United Church of God, an International Association (UCGIA or simplyUCG) is a religious denomination based in the United States, an offshoot of the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) founded by Herbert W.Armstrong.
One of the references cited by nontrinitarians...
I have a friend who wants to receive the Holy Spirit. He says he does not know how to do it. I have prayed with him and told him he must keep asking for it. Is there a sure fire way that I do not know of..... to receive the Holy Spirit. I should add that he does have mental illness and would this get in the way of receiving the Holy Spirit? I do not think so, but he seems to be blocked. He goes to church more often than me and wants to be a Christian.
