There are times where I feel so abandoned by God. Like He's there but would rather watch me squirm and suffer than rescue me. I have questioned God and had thoughts of cursing Him and giving up trying. It's such an uphill battle for me. Like trying to climb a mountain with my feet chained to two trucks. It's hard not to feel like 1984. Like I had one bad thought. I did one bad thing that started everything and now it's the ministry of love for me with O'Brien. I wish I thought of God the...
Is the New Age movement Satanic?
I ask because I'm genuinely curious about New Age books in general. However, I am a Christian first before anything else, so I want to know... Anything and everything related to New Age. Is it Satanic? Or is it something that's safe to participate it?
Thanks in advance.
Yesterday my brother just confronted me after church with something rude. He started asking questions about our church, in a way that was attacking the character of the people there and telling me "your church is obviously failing to be relevant to young people".
It really made me upset. He is irreligious, and the things he said were very hurtful.
First, I pointed out that yes, we do have young people at our church, but older people often attend on wednedays during Lent. Then he asked...
I am puzzled a bit by Calvin's doctrine of predestination.
Those who are predestined to Christ are called the Elect,or you might say the premises is a doctrine of election.
Those who will be lost are called reprobates,they are predestined to hell without a choice.
Let me start in Matthew, because the concept is the Elect will not fall away.
Matthew: 24. 24. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible,...
does anyone got any tips, scriptures that will help defeat all doubts, and worries?(like all his promises too) I'll have my doubts sometimes, then worries... it's starting to bug me.. I got a lot to read! it'll take literally forever to read to the whole bible, because I'm a huge procrastinator, and I even procrastinate with my school work so I never have time... :/ I know I gotta read and gain faith from his very own word which is why I'm asking for every scripture that will help me in this...
Perception comes from possessing different perspectives...
How do we possess different perspectives...?
Is there any danger in too much of this...?
We live in a not gated but sort of private community associated with our church and beliefs.
A guy came through showing some kind of government ID I didn't recognize and wanting access to phone numbers, how many children are here, what is our state tax ID number, property deed title number, vehicle information and VIN for all vehicles.
He said he was from the IRS doing an "assessment." Not.
You do not want to know what I told him and I called the cops on this.
They caught him, he uses...
I have always (and still do) believe that the Earth is indeed spherical.
But I've noticed lately that there are a surprising number of Christians who hold to the flat earth/geocentric model. And so I was wondering which model people here subscribed to. I'm really interested in creating some discussion about this.
Do you believe the Earth is round or flat? What is your evidence?
Here's some of my evidence to start off:
The night sky in the northern hemisphere appears to rotate around...
There seems to be a common trend I'm observing on the forum, and that is the idea of sinless perfectionism. That somehow the Holy Spirit has removed not only all sin, but even the desire to sin. That "true" Christians become sinless.
A recent thread on CF promoting this heresy:
If you commit sin are you still of God? Yes or no
"Perfectionists" love 1 John 3 it seems:
1 John 3:9, "No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born...
