No matter what, I can’t shake this feeling of loneliness and insignificance when around ppl. It’s one thing to not be of this world and be rejected but it’s bad when you feel this way around beloved believers.
It’s not that I don’t try to connect. Been pushing myself more lately to talk, etc. But the end result is always the same. It’s agonizing to see other ppl have fun together and sharing a close bond.
Or how ppl have a significant other. Now for a while none of these things bothered me as I was more content in my own. Yet at the same time I knew I had to connect. I don’t know. It’s like establishing significant relationships become a rarity but the day. Especially as you get older. Most of the time it’s down to just small talk...
Ok thanks to the person who after my introduction told me about this area for asking my questions..via a link. Thank you love
1: My GoodNews bible (or the author of this translation) states amongst Jesus' words in brackets () where its said that "Jesus declared all foods are fit for consumption"
(Mark or Matthew I think...sorry for poor quotation as Im on a mobile phone and I find difficult to copy and paste at present...its the "it is not what goes into a man but which comes out which defile him" quote...seems different depending on what bible you have)
Is Jesus talking about the sin of unclean foods, or does it mean should anyone say with his mouth (which comes out of a man/mans mouth) that its ok to eat pork (ie he who tells a...
I am asking, have you been contacted by God WITH proofs given you through miraculous revelations? Scriptures speak of God personally revealing himself through personal contacts throughout history. And there were always miraculous revelations experienced by the people God communicated with in that personal way.
I once asked a woman soliciting donations for the pastor of a large Christian radio ministry, if that pastor had ever been personally contacted by God. The pastor's name I won't give out, but he is so famous most of you have heard of him. She, the pastor's fund raiser, got rather defensive, and said she didn't know if he had been or not, and she continued she would never ask him that question. I asked, why not? I cannot remember...
Texas police officer shoots woman to death inside her home
A Fort Worth police officer checking out a residence with an open door opened fire on a woman inside her home, killing her, authorities said.
The shooting early Saturday occurred less than two weeks after a police officer in nearby Dallas was found guilty of murder for fatally shooting a man in his home in 2018. In both cases the officers are white and the victims were African American.
In the Fort Worth shooting at 2:25 a.m. Saturday, authorities have the officer's body-camera footage.
If John dies around AD100, the Canon of scripture is closed and the gifts ceased, how come the church fathers continued to testify concerning deliverance and healings after that time?

Some thing I have trouble with is understanding the Diferance between what God wants me too do and lucky and possibly worldly oportunity.
What I mean is, when choosing to follow God there is a certain life path I chose to give up because I felt it against God because it does not bring glory but too myself. In the few months before now that path does seem to jump at me with oportunity that is beyond my dreams!
I am afraid I do not know if it is the right path for me but I feel bad to just sit by and watch oportunitys go away because I am uncertain.
My prayer has brought me zero peace on this issue and I wish to ask other Christians for advice or example of how you know what to do.
Hi there everyone!
I just made my account to this forum, specifically, so I could get this off of my chest. I tend to ramble and have a hard time condensing my points, so please bear with me if this comes out too long.
Let me preface by saying that the past 2 or 3 years, I consider myself to have been a very 'lukewarm' Christian. Yes, I preached the Gospel and I was passionate about God when I did, but I was not always thinking about God and I fell into some bad habits. I swore, was surrounded with unbelievers, became very petty and argumentative at times, hated other people sometimes too, and engaged in some very...question online sexual behavior with someone I dated long distance for several years.
This past year was hard. I broke...
Do you have any advice for a young Christian such as myself?
Are there any regrets that you have from your younger days?
The closing paragraph was at best a thinly-veiled threat (emphasis added):
The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be “restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.” Particularly on the urgent issue of gun control, a nation desperately needs it to heal.
This was not so much a legal argument, but a shot across the bow of the Court and Chief Justice Roberts in particular.
Nice Court you have there, Chief, shame if something happened to it.
