We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
Covid: UK may approve one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine suspended by US FDA over blood clot fears | Daily Mail Online
The six women who developed clots – representing a rate of around one in a million – were aged between 18 and 48; one of them died and another is in hospital, the New York Times reports.
Thrombosis seems to be a common side effect with these COVID vaccines. The stated rate may only be one in a million, but I expect that will turn out to be under-reported.
And the vaccine is reportedly not even close to 100% effective at stopping infection. So by extension, recipients can probably still transmit the virus to others.
Clinical trials suggest the vaccine offers 100 per cent protection from severe Covid leading to...
The term “Christian” is only used three times in the New Testament. First, in Acts 11:26 it states, “The disciples were first called Christians at Antioch;” secondly, in Acts 26:28 states, “Then Agrippa said to Paul, ‘Can you persuade me in such a short time to become a Christian?;” and finally, 1 Peter 4:16 states, “But if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear that name.”
In simple terms, the word has been used to describe someone who is Christ-like, but what does that really mean. I have heard that if you are a good Christian you go to church, read the bible, prayer, make you offerings, etc.; however, is that what it means to be a Christian? You do not even have to believe in Christ to do those...
Hi, I'm new to Bible and I have a question:
On John 8, the pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery and said to Jesus that Moses said that they should stone the woman, then Jesus said “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her".
The laws that Moses brought were directly from God and although I didn't read the entire OT yet, I don't remember it saying that they should stone a woman for adultery, but God said that they should stone a man because he was working on sabbath day.
It's not the same thing, obviously, but why Jesus didn't keep the laws from Moses and God of stoning people?
Hello you and welcome.
How should you view yourself as a Christian?
To this notion; first and foremost -> The bible is a gift of God that human beings have now today, to look at and read and see the Creation of the World, and also to Learn about the works of God through out history, it is a history of records of recorded times through out the generations preserved by Gods grace, and to see and learn about the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God who is found in the truth of the Good News - The Four Gospels.
About His life, death, burial, and resurrection.
How should a Christian view themselves? -> Most in the world today, depending on the culture of Christianity you are around -> Many people will harp on sin. -> Sin, sin, sin. ->
Hello you and welcome.
According to Romans 7:4So that, my brethren, ye also were made dead to the law through the body of the Christ, for your becoming another's, who out of the dead was raised up, that we might bear fruit to God;
Paul explains to the Romans and us today. That you brothers (believers - who are trusting in God and the Lord Jesus Christ)
You also were made dead to the law
Through the body of the Christ (Messiah) -> For you are becoming another's (Now being dead to the law -> moving into the body of Christ -> who out of the dead was raised up -> by the spirit given through the Lord Jesus Christ that is received from the Father, that we as believers may bear fruit.
Dead/The put to death -> 2289. thanatoó Usage: I put to...
'White Lives Matter' rallies flop as hardly anyone shows up
In semi-private, encrypted chats, neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists planned rallies in dozens of cities Sunday to promote their racist movements and spread their ideologies to larger audiences.
Hyped by organizers as events that would make “the whole world tremble,” the rallies ran into a major problem: Hardly anyone showed up.

We know that Jesus himself was baptised by immersion in water (Matthew 3).
John the Baptist preached that "one would come after who would baptise with spirit and fire", however, Jesus does not appear to have baptised anyone via immersion in water and yet, the apostles clearly did this long after the cross.
I am also querying the relationship between Christian baptisms, the sanctuary service, and Jesus as both our sacrificial lamb and high priest (i feel that there is a link i the sanctuary services that explains why Jesus did not baptise in water)
If the baptism via immersion as performed by John the Baptist was an important ritual, what happened as a result of a break in the timeline between the death of John the Baptist, and the...
When and why it became abomination?
Assuming Adam and Eve were created beings and Eve was mother of all living thier kids had to be married to each other and so on untill the genealogy tree spreads alot of branches , at what point and why did God make statement that incest is abomination to him?
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. -- Mark 10
What does that mean exactly? When and how does God join a man and a woman together?
Is it through the act of sexual intercourse?
Is it through the covenant promises that they make specifically before God as believers in Him?
Does it require both the covenant and the sexual intercourse?
Does it matter if one or the other party was an unbeliever and the covenant was made to some other god?
Does it matter if one party had their fingers crossed behind their back and had no intention of carrying out the covenant? IOW, does God validate a lie?
This is what Yahshua said to the ecclesia in Ephesus:
(CLV) Re 2:6
But this you have, that you are hating the acts of the Nicolaitans, which I, also, am hating.
Yahshua hates these acts! Strong words are these.
It's clear to me that I don't want to act like a Nicolaitan.
This is what Yahshua said to the ecclesia at Pergamum:
(CLV) Re 2:15
Thus you, also, have those holding the teaching of the Nicolaitans, likewise.
(CLV) Re 2:16
Repent then! Yet if not, I am coming to you swiftly and shall be battling with them with the blade of My mouth.
It's clear to me that I don't follow the teachings of the Nicolaitans.
Which leads me to the question, what are these teachings?
Let's take a look.
The doctrine of the Nicolaitans appears to...
