CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
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.
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but
water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and
bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not
return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall
succeed in the thing for which I sent it. (Isa. 55:10-11 ESV)
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for
correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be
complete, equipped for every good work. (2 Tim. 3:16-17 ESV)
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword,
piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of...
1 John 2:2 "2 He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world."
The atoning sacrifice made at the cross is full , once for all and completed.
Wait? what about animals making atonement for sin?
4 It is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
5 Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said:
“Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
but a body you prepared for me;
6 with burnt offerings and sin offerings
you were not pleased.
7 Then I said, ‘Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll—
I have come to do your will, my God.’”
8 First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor...
I'm wondering if there's anyone who can explain the doctrine of purgatory?
Given that the doctrine didn't even exist until Gregory I revealed it in about 593 AD, did purgatory not exist until that time, given that it was completely unknown to christendom before that time, so far as I can find, all the way back to the time of the apostles? I mean, if the apostles knew about it, then why did it not become a central doctrine until 593 AD?
What are the authoritative definitions for that place, and who goes there, and by what criteria?
I realize this has probably been asked many times, but reading through the posts, it appears there was application of all kinds of logical fallacies on both sides of the argument. Can anyone summarize the...
IS KNOWING AND USING GOD'S NAME IMPORTANT?
I just thought this was an interesting topic as I know people that believe God needs to be called by a specific name or else type of thing. So at some point I wanted to know if this is important or not. We know that in the new testament Jesus is God and we have God the father but in the old testament many believe that God's name is YAHWEH/JEHOVAH.
What I found interesting in this topic was the way the Hebrews named things. Unlike what we do in our culture, the names given by the Hebrews is very descriptive of what is being named. Sometimes parents of Children would not even name their new born babies until sometime later after they had the chance to study the child's character, then...
Not proud but I have done this when my husband deployed and he requested I email him suggestive pics-nude of myself. I was hesitant but eventually I made two bogus email accounts one for him and one for me and sent him such pics years ago.
I justified it because I knew a lady in church small group who would flash her deployed spouse on camera while he was in a communication center at his deployed location. He would tell her to do this when no one was looking. Or one nonChristian couple I knew whose girlfriend kept trying to send him dirty magazines labeled “art” (lol) when he was deployed.
I thought emailing personal pics to the hubbykins was a lot better than what others were up to. I regret it though. I deleted the bogus email...
Hey you, curious to know what is left for us to do after acceptance of placing faith in God, and the Lord Jesus Christ?
Here below you can see what we progress from after we accept the Lord Jesus Christ, but what is there left for us to do afterwards?
Hebrews 6: 1 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of the doctrine of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
Hebrews 6 says we go to perfection (maturity), for a believer they do not have to worry about laying down the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith (work is...
There is some discussion on other threads about the holy Land; all that area from the Nile to the Euphrates.
Some think that area has no significance now. Other say it is for the Jews only. Both these views are wrong, because God still keeps His eyes on it, Deuteronomy 11:11-12, and it is well prophesied that He will get rid of all the ungodly wicked people there and only the faithful peoples of God will live there. Jeremiah 12:14
The question of who will inhabit the holy Land in the period before the Return of Jesus, is made clear by the following Bible passages;
Daniel 7:25 He [the Anti-Christ] will wear down the holy ones of God. He will change the feasts and the religious laws. The Lord’s holy people will be delivered into...
This article, courtesy of ABC Australia, the publicly owned broadcaster, is a sobering assessment of the current political situation in the USA. The one factor left out of the analysis (hardly surprising) is God. Unfortunately, God is increasingly left out of American society. So no one should be surprised at the current state of affairs in the US.
The problem at the heart of this week's crisis goes deeper than Trump
Is the article factual? Are the conclusions correct? I don't agree with everything stated in the article, but the general theme is hard to argue against. Agree? Or not?
