I have been a Christian since about four or five, although I had a period last year of identifying as atheist then Taoist. People say a true Christian would never do that. That I wasn't saved before, or if I was saved I've crossed an unforgivable line. Could I have been saved? It scares me so much, if I wasn't saved, and I blasphemed and had those soul-selling thoughts does this mean I am irreversibly condemned to hell? I was so sure I loved God growing up, I want to repent and have the love...
I am catholic by the way. I rarely quote scripture. That is partly because I don't have the knowledge of many good CF members who are raised on the Bible as the number one authority.
But I see my role in helping a fellow human being as first, being there for them. As an equal. Not as their scripture quoting superior. As if the OP's lack of knowledge of scripture is contributing to the problem.
See them first as fellow travellers. Don't condescend to them as if you are closer to Heaven , as...
Why do some people say that if someone was Christian and then became atheist or agnostic, they weren't ever really a Christian or ever really saved?
I find it insulting and hurtful to those who earnestly sought Jesus and did not find, especially those who were minsters or otherwise devout Christians before their deconversion.
Daniel 7 Contemporary.
Many people think that Dan.7 concerns history, however I believe & was taught that it is contemporary to us today. So let`s have a look -
After the vision of the Great Image, the overview of the Gentile world rulers, God then gives Daniel a vision. Daniel had a dream and a vision while he was in bed. He awoke and then wrote down the main facts.
`In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and vision while on his bed. Then he wrote down the...
A former Mormon on YouTube, FlackerMan, takes on the claims made by the Mormon church concerning why you should follow the Mormon prophet.
There's some pretty interesting stuff in here. I'd like to get reactions from both Mormons and non-Mormons. I know that for myself, as a non-Mormon, there are many things that I would say in response to each of these points (some of which are brought up by the uploader in his commentary, e.g., on the benefit of having some kind of measuring stick to...
I'd argue that even pure theologians have to go outside the Bible to prove a point. The only problem with that is, their definition of what a "false teacher" is is so broad, that they fit the mold of a false teacher oftentimes themselves without realizing it. I assert that when the Bible speaks of "false teachers" and "wolves in sheep's clothing" they are more talking about things we never thought of like certain cult groups and not our beautiful, misinformed (or rightly informed and people...
A false teacher is anyone who teaches or attempts to convince others of things which are false. In religious terms, it is any person who teaches contrary to the word of God.
“False teachers” derives from the compound Greek pseudo-didaskalos. Pseudo suggests the idea of deception—that which is not true, hence deceives. A false teacher is disingenuous in character and in the composition of his message. His motivation is not a greater understanding of the Scriptures, but rather to convince...
I havent been on here in a very long time but I just needed some quick advice. I have a coworker who I really liked in the beginning because she really helped me get acquainted with my new job. Long story short, the more I get to know her the more I am unsure of rather or not she is really a friend. My coworker is Hindu and is from India. She has been working as a teacher for 10 years and this is my 1st year working as a teacher. In short, she is really great about inviting me to...
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
Mormons agree with us that Adam and Eve didn't know good from evil.
22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his...
