I just wanted to share something my fiance' came up with. She is a jewelry designer and has a shop with her daughter. They asked if I had an outlet for some of their items and I told them I would share it with everyone here at CF. So I started them an Etsy Shop account to showcase what they have done. And this is the first items! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much! - Rex

For those of you who support Christians saying the pledge of allegiance, would you still support saying it if you knew one hundred percent that America was the second beast of Revelation 13 and that the American civic religion was the worship of the image of the first beast (the Roman empire)?
In John 8 we encounter a group of Jews who were believing in Jesus...
As he was saying these things, many believed in him. So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him...
Although they believe in Jesus, they do not appear to truly be his disciples. A corrective from Jesus is needed...
“If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Jesus then goes on to say to these believers that they are slaves of sin (John 8:34), his word finds no place in them (John 8:37), that their father is the devil and not God (John 8:44), and that they do not believe in Jesus (John 8:45).
How is it possible to be both believing and unbelieving at the same time? How is it possible to be...
Asking ONLY Mormons ---
1. Who is the Mormon holy ghost?
2. Where does he reside?
3. Will he live in the Celestial Kingdom when worthy Mormons are there or will he be in some other place?
Searching Mormon scriptures and writings, I'm providing some quotes that don't clearly answer my questions.
Doctrine and Covenants 8
1 Oliver Cowdery, verily, verily, I say unto you, that assuredly as the Lord liveth, who is your God and your Redeemer, even so surely shall you receive a knowledge of whatsoever things you shall ask in faith, with an honest heart, believing that you shall receive a knowledge concerning the engravings of old records, which are ancient, which contain those parts of my scripture of which has been spoken by the...
Reading through Gospel of John 6 and immediately thought of predestination. I wouldn't classify myself as Calvinist and I accept I may have comprehension barriers others do not, (1 Corinthians 13:9-13 in my defense! )
I do find its claims interesting to explore. John 6 was very striking in this regard, the whole predestination thing jumped out. What do you think? Will bold the most pertinent vereses...
22 The day following, when the people which stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was none other boat there, save that one whereinto his disciples were entered, and that Jesus went not with his disciples into the boat, but that his disciples were gone away alone;
23 (Howbeit there came other boats from...
The latest incident occurred during the first week of school when a first grader came across a classmate on the playground. She called the student by his given name – apparently unaware that the boy now identified as a girl.
“This innocent little first grader sees a classmate, calls him by the name she knew him last year and the boy reports it to a teacher,” Capitol Resource Institute’s Karen England told me. “The little girl gets in trouble on the playground and then gets called out of class to the principal’s office.”
This passage has been the subject of much controversy, as to whether this speaks of a period of great "apostasy", or whether it refers to the "departure", or "Rapture" of the Church.
I believe the KJV phrase "falling away", in 2 Thess. 2:3, refers to the "departure", or "Rapture" of the Church.
The KJV English phrase "falling away", in 2 Thess. 2:3, is the one Greek word "apostasia", and its basic meaning is to "depart from" or "go away".
The Greek word "Apostasia" is a compound of two Greek words: "Apo" = "to move away", "stasis" means "standing or state", or "to stand".
Literally, from its basic definition, "apostasia" means "to go away from", or "depart", or "change state or standing from one state to another".
so where is their argument for the third temple?
- man of sin -
that is all they got
they have to distort many other passages in order to make this work -
who are these people? -
they are futurists who don't even recognize the fulfillment of what daniel prophesied over 25 hundred years ago
what are they waiting for besides the third temple? -
what are the jews waiting for? -
the first coming -
there will always be those who just don't get it -
what's the harm? -
they are distorting what Jesus said
we have to assume what Jesus said is important -
let's look at what Jesus said
- there shall not be left here one stone upon another
- the abomination of desolation, spoken of by daniel the prophet, stand in the holy...
I certainly want ID taught in universities and schools but.........
it seems to me that we Christians need to apply this advice before it
"Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison."
What I believe Messiah Yeshua - Jesus means by this is...... agree with our opponents to the degree that our adversaries are perhaps correct...... or at least could be correct..... because there is so much information that each of us cannot possibly know enough about to be dogmatic on all subjects.
An Ancient of Days the Father, an Ancient of Days the Holy Spirit and...
