The following questions are for those who subscribe to unconditional election:
1. Do you think you are *not* one of the elect or have you ever met someone who subscribes to unconditional election but thinks they are *not* one of the elect?
2. If you think you are one of the elect, how do you know that God hasn't planned for you to be one of the unelect (for example by making you think you believe when you don't truly believe like those who seemed to be solid Calvinists but suddenly became atheists or agnostics)?
Hello, I’m new here so hopefully I’m doing this right? My boyfriend and I have been in a serious relationship for over 3years. A couple months ago he brought up possibly wanting a prenup. I couldn’t help but feel betrayed & taken a back. We’ve always had strong,loving, trusting relationship with no issues & centered by God. His reasoning is because if there was a possibility we “didn’t work out” he had “a lot to loose” I told him what do you think God would think of this and he said: “well he would want me to have faith in him” I also feel like I’ve done something wrong, or I didn’t do enough for him to feel like he needed this? I don’t have a lot of money saved but I do have a lot of love to give. We haven’t talked much about it lately...
Well, this is an internal conflict I've had for a while. I'd like your take on it.
I'm not much of a "feeler", personality-wise. I like to be logical and straightforward. I enjoy studying theology and apoligetics. I don't tend to cry during worship and my language is quite unemotional as well. I'm just a thinker. I do feel quite profoundly, but I express those emotions towards God in more of a private way and not as much through singing in worship or general outward expression (my Myers-Briggs type is even INTP, if anyone here is familiar with that).
I guess my dilemma is that I am not a "typical" modern day Christian teenager and I don't find too many Christians I can relate to, so it has made me question whether it is right for me...
There are some Christian youtube channels who are monetized.
Wouldn't it be wrong to monetize your youtube channel if you talk about Jesus?
Also, some channels mix videos like"christian advices" and other videos about "conspiracy theories" etc.
There are even christian youtube channels who have their own library, selling books.
Is this all ok or would all of this be wrong?
All the characteristics of godliness are invisible and unseen, but these are the qualities that Jesus seeks in a person. What are these characteristics? To love one another, forgive, honesty, humble, righteous, moral. These characteristics are like the wind, we cannot see them, but we know they exist and we know how to apply them into our lives. My dear friends, do you have these characteristics?
DERBY LINE, Vermont — More than 960 people crossed into the U.S. illegally from the northern border with Canada last year, according to data released from Customs and Border Protection.
While that number is a tiny fraction compared to the migration across the border with Mexico, it represented a 91 percent increase from the prior fiscal year, the data showed.

House votes in favor of illegal immigrant voting
By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Friday, March 8, 2019
House Democrats voted Friday to defend localities that allow illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, turning back a GOP attempt to discourage the practice.
The vote marks a stunning reversal from just six months ago, when the chamber — then under GOP control — voted to decry illegal immigrant voting.
“We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in,” Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and hero of the civil rights movement, told colleagues as he led opposition to the GOP measure.

Wasnt sure where to post this.
In Almost all (if not all) threads on this topic it will invariably come down to the claim (usually spoken irreverantly) that Tongues today are just babble and not tongues at all.
The same argument will be used repeatedly to shore up this unwise claim.
The cessationist will say
"In acts when they spoke in tongues it was an intelligible language that others can understand.
And if its not- its not real tongues.
[ In this post i first want to state -Tongues are Not a validation of rightouesness .i.e. Not everyone who speaks in tongues automatically goes to heaven . ]
To make this claim many words in Pauls letters are fully ignored .
E.g - he states there are a diversity of tongues . there are...
Matthew 24:13 - But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
Those who endure to the end are not necessarily saved due to the following Scripture:-
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Matthew 7:21-23 has served to demonstrate that those who endure to the end are not necessarily saved; since God can still reject (or condemn) the Self-righteous Christians who insist that...
