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...
So, the left is once again threatening violence towards those who don't fall in line with their political agenda. Once again the left is showing and increasing propensity to use whatever means necessary to shut down opposing views. PC work at it's finest on display. And those threatened were not even going to do anything that was not PC. But apparently that doesn't matter to these intolerant folk.
Leftist threat to 'drag' Republicans from parade has sad end
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...
I've pondered on this and studied it a little, but I figure I will put it out here to see what thoughts you all can offer.
So, Yeshua is our Passover Lamb, who died on Passover and took away the sins of all those that come to faith in Him. That's the Passover for the believer, right?
How then does Number 9 come into play?
If I am on a "long journey" in life to come to Yeshua, when is the opportunity missed and therefore in need of the "second Passover" opportunity?
Is that post-death...
I believe the Bible teaches "Dualistic Conditional Immortality."
This is the view as taught in the Bible that says that "hell" is a very real and literal place; But the wicked will perish (i.e. be erased from existence) in the Lake of Fire (After the Judgment).
As for a literal "hell": Well, I just do not believe there is any Scripture saying that the wicked will burn down there for thousands of years. Yes, the story of Lazarus and the Rich-man appears to suggest he was in the flame, but...
Jesus referred to in Mt.24:30:
There are two signs referred to in Rev.12, in which the one found in verses 1-2 through 5, the woman represents the virgin Mary, which is the subject of this post. The woman of verses 6-14 represent the nation of Israel.
The sign of the Son of Man referred to by Jesus in Mt.24:30 is explained from what was written in Rev,12:1-2, called the "Wonderous sign in heaven.'
The Great and Wonderous Sign -
You could say - it is the gospel in the sky. (Ps.89:5) This...
I've been looking for a church that does baptisms and a church up the road does them. Many say baptism is required for salvation and I have been pushed to do so.
So I messaged and they do baptisms. It is a Bible Baptist church. Their page says "Our church is a friendly fundamental Bible-believing Independent Baptist Church. We would like to invite you to join us."
I have no idea about denominations. So looked up what independent fundamental baptist churches are. I got that it's a cult pop...
