Imagine I am young and unhappy and looking for answers. I'm unemployed and cant find a girlfriend. I feel so depressed I have contemplated suicide. I am desperate. I want an answer asap, otherwise...??
I feel like I'm just getting older and I don't want to look back on my life and see a void, in the past I turned down alot of guys( I knew it wasn't going to go anywhere...)
But I'm just struggling, what if I don't find someone special, what if there's no guy for me?
Idk, I just don't want life to pass me by... But at the same time I think about risks like pregnancy and other stuff like that and that's enough to scare me into staying single.
Most days I don't care but days like these I...
I'm not looking for debate here.
I would rather we don't debate. I don't care if you are pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib.

I'm thinking of one person in particular when I say this. he will recount the times people treated him badly in the past. He has all the sins of other people stored in his memory, never to delete. Yet...
I have been in a Baptist church since I have been saved and would consider myself a cessationist, which is more aligned with reformed Baptist theology.
However I have been watching some very interesting beautiful videos on youtube of an ex-satanist, who got saved named John Ramirez.
I would like to hear from people who use the loosing and binding in prayers. Also how can I have spiritual warfare prayers.
Lastly I would like to have a list of all the demons/devils so I...
Problems/Questions with faith alone theology and it's accompanied theory of double imputation are presented below.
On Faith Alone
Question - If a man is justified by faith alone and the scriptures say man is justified by faith (Rom 3:28, 5:1, Gal 2:16), why then add in the word "alone", when the word "alone" does not exist within any scripture text in the context of justification by faith?
Question- if man is justified by faith alone, why doesn't any scripture text actually say that?...
The purpose of Jesus' death was the atonement of sins. I say the sins of those going to hell will not be atoned. Since Jesus' death will not atone their sins, I say Jesus did not die for them.
Romans 3:25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished
Hebrews 2:17 For this reason he had to be made like...
