I didn't choose to believe in Jesus, the Holy Spirit is the reason I can and do.
I didn't choose to believe in predestination, the Bible says God chose us and predestinates so I believe the word of God.
I didn't choose to believe in the Trinity, the Bible says these 3 testify as 1. The Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit.
I didn't choose to believe 1+1=2.
So, in reality, we can't force ourselves to believe something, right?
Also, Satan invented dinosaurs.
If not, then who did? God?
God allowed Satan to invent dinosaurs. Satan had to askn him to do it.
Also, wgty are people scared of snakes? Dumb question. Forget I asked.
Just that one question.
So my mother claims to be Christian, but she recently said that a certain part of the Bible was wrong. This isn't the first time that she's said some seriously wrong things about the scripture. However, this time I told her, as soon as she said it, that she was going to hell (it was kind of spontaneous because I was fed up with her making these little jabs at scripture all the same). Then I told her that I was serious and she responded with a "Wow...". Then, I told her, "Well, let me rephrase that. What you said is worthy of hell" and then I questioned her about if she even believes at all, saying because Christians will not go to hell. I question from time to time if she's even Christian and it feels like I'm coming closer and closer...
I feel a lot of times when I tell someone that I don't have assurance of Salvation, they believe "I don't have a relationship with Jesus", but it is the opposite, I know that I have to work out my salvation every day.
What is your opinion?
The Four Horsemen of Revelation
There are a lot of interesting historical facts in this video; but I always disagree with then Armstrong crowd regarding the white horse of Rev 6:2. I can see no reason to assume the white horse is Satan making a false covenant, even though Satan has made a false covenant and deceived most.
Zechariah tells us that the horses and riders are sent out by God, initially they spy and then react to what they see. So I believe the white horse of Rev 6:2 is the true covenant being spread and the other horses react to how the covenant is received.
Because of the word pharma in sorcery, in revelation.
Serious question. Maybe.
If drinking booze is not witchcraft, then what is witchcraft?
Some dirty liars, or self-styled "Christians" try to claim Jesus never even drank booze...
But, he did.
So, deep stuff.
By “habitual sinner” I mean a person who repeatedly
sinswithout repentance. This means everyone
(BACs included) … because everyone can choose to sin. Repentance means to hate your sin, run from it, and don’t do it anymore. If one does slip up and sins again, he/she can repent again as in 1 John 1:9. This is repeated until he/she has overcome the sin,
i.e. gained victory over it.
All habitual sinners will not inherit
the Kingdom of God
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves,
nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the Kingdom of God.”
Okay so Jesus over 2,000 years ago promised his disciples that he would return "soon" and that the end of the age is nigh. But how soon is soon? It's been over 2,000 years already. You would think a statement of soon would be about a period of 500 years or less. To me That's soon. Not 2k+ years. Honestly? I think it'll be another century or so before Jesus comes back. And even with me "setting a date" I'm wrong. So what? We have to wait 5,000 + years for Jesus to come back? What good is that? I mean think about it. The apostles have been waiting for the return of Christ for over 2,000 years now. That's a LONG time. If they have to wait 5,000+ years I can see why the multitude in Revelation were so eager for Christ's return. Especially...
