I am a 61 year old woman , separated and waiting for my husband to end his affair of four years with a younger woman. I know I sound crazy but he tells me he still loves me so much but he is obsessed with this woman and has broke up with her at least 30 times. We have so much together and he will not see her for a couple of months but always seems to drift back to her. I do everything for him and she does nothing, she doesn't work, she always wants his money. I just want my old life back but I am sure everyone will think I am crazy for waiting so long. HELP!
Many Christians today believe as an article of faith that the Bible teaches the earth was created 6,000 years ago. They dispute all the evidence of geology, paleontology and radiometric dating techniques. They argue that such evidence is invalid, grossly misunderstood, and misinterpreted. Some Neo-Creationists claim that all the earth's strata was due to the Noachian deluge, or the original process of Creation. They claim all Creation took place during a six day period approximately 6,000 years ago. What is the truth?
The Bible is a reliable historical witness. However, the Bible nowhere says Creation occurred 6,000 years ago. Nor does it teach that the earth is flat, although Medieval theologians often assumed so and threatened anyone...
Can you only be saved if you pick the right denomination? Or can be people be saved in any Christian denomination, as long as they believe in Jesus?
Once someone told me that everyone in a denomination of Christianity was going to Hell, unless they went to the original Church of Christ? But which one is that? Is it even still here today?
What do you think?
Here's a questionaire I shared with some people a few years ago, it made them realise they didn't really know the bible, they just knew slogons and made them "search the scriptures" to "prove all things" . . .
1) Does a person need to be born again to have salvation?
2) Is being born again the same as receiving the Holy Spirit?
3) When were the disciples born again?
4) is the baptism in the Holy Spirit synonymous with receiving the Holy Spirit?
5) In the bible, how did they know when people received the Holy Spirit?
5a) is it the same today or are there new ways?
This is kinda important, especially for new converts. This video lays out what salvation is and isn't thoroughly that it is not by our works but by faith in the blood atonement of Christ alone. The gift freely given. It is not by anything we do, other than believing by faith in the grace of the Lord.
In all the eschatology books I have read, I have rarely found an explanation for Daniel 7:11-12. So what do you think...
How were the lives of the three beasts prolonged after the fourth beast was destroyed?
I personally believe the beast in Daniel 7:11 refers to the Western Roman Empire (in the area of Western Europe) and the rest of the beasts in Daniel 7:12 refers to the Byzantine Empire (in the area of the Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire, and the Grecian Empire). Since the Western Roman Empire ended in AD 476, but the Byzantine Empire did not end until AD 1453, that is how the rest of the beasts were prolonged 977 years after the beast was destroyed.
Daniel 7:11-12... I beheld then because of the voice of the great words...
Scottish Episcopal Church approves gay marriage - BBC News
The Episcopal church in Scotland has become the latest to back gay marriage.
For conservatives, how do you respond to this trend? More and more churches are making this move, while pretty much nothing happens on the other side (no progressive church changes direction and decides to ban gay marriage again)
Where does the fault lie? Is it society/the devil deluding these churches, in your view?
Is the explanation "oh well they were never really Christian in the first place, so its good that we can recognize the true Christians more easily now" ?
The Anglican Communion may eventually approve of gay marriage as a whole. Catholics - probably not in our lifetime, but there are...
I would like to show you historical data that prove Babylon the Great, the Antichrist and the False Prophet are real, they are among us today, and have fulfilled 97% of the prophecies describing them in the Bible. The historical data show the Antichrist and the False Prophet are demons, not human beings, although the Antichrist uses a man to manifest himself.
The historical data show Babylon the Great is the church in Rome (the Catholic Church). The data show the seat of the papacy is the Antichrist (all the popes, not one in particular). The data show the Antichrist not only made a covenant with Israel, but he did it in the right month of the right year it had to happen, to be perfectly in line with Scripture. The data also show 8...
I attend a Christian school over in Sydney, Australia.
In recent weeks, I've discovered quite a few homosexuals (which indeed surprises me for the nature of the school I attend), with one friend being gay himself.
I've felt their overly progressive values are attempting to pull me away from God. I'm a relatively conservative Christian, for those that do not know.
I've tried praying, but nothing is working as of yet.
What can I do to resolve this? As the majority of my year group is quite progressive, I don't want to call them out for being gay or tell them they deserve death as God himself requires, as I'll be labelled a homophobe and lose all of my reputation, a typical thing the left does to silence opposition.
