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.
I'm one of those people who fail at everything. Nearly every little thing I do. Even when praying nothing happens. I find myself cussing God out because he made me this way. I'm to the point where I don't even care if I make it to heaven. I don't even know what to do. I pray for answers on how to live but don't hear anything.
I think most Christians would say that temptation, in and of itself, is not sin. However, I came across a contrary view regarding temptation held by John Calvin. Calvin, who usually agrees with virtually anything Augustine says, takes a different view of temptation.
"Content to designate it with the term "weakness," he (Augustine) teaches that it becomes sin only when either act or consent follows the conceiving or apprehension of it, that is, when the will yields to the first strong inclination. We, on the other hand, deem it sin when man is tickled by any desire at all against the law of God. Indeed, we label "sin" that very depravity which begets in us desires of this sort" (Institutes III.III.10).
One possibility is that Calvin is...
The ultimate statement of biblical context. Your view of the final judgment determines your definition of what the Bible actually is. What's yours?
Does the Bible reveal God's plan for the redemption of humankind, or is it a plan for the genocide/incineration of humanity? Depends on who you ask, I suppose.
Many may agree that the Bible reveals God's plan for the redemption of humankind, but then also claim that the vast majority of humanity will be consigned to eternal conscious torment, or incineration. (the genocide of humanity) Which is obviously not the redemption of humankind. Not even close.

Guys, I need help. I'm starting to think my neighbours are attacking me by their household noise. Ordinarily, I'm not so much affected because I know it's just ordinary sounds but as of late, everytime I make a sound in my home, I'm hearing another sound just after. Whether it's a spoon dropping on a plate or a cupboard slamming. I dont live in the apartment complex like they do but I do have a house next to the apartment. This has been happening for just over a month. I always get the feeling that they are trying to get the message across that I'm being too loud but I live in my own place and i dont do it on purpose. However, because they are making these reactive sounds (which never happened before since I'm here for the past three...
Many members including me are in the bad habit of expressing doctrinal positions without either citing sources from which one learned the particular doctrine or scriptural interpretation. Additionally, I think a smaller number of members post their own opinions, which could be valid, about what is the correct reading of scripture or the correct theological doctrine or answer to a question, without clearly expressing whether or not it is an opinion, and if it is a new one, that someone has just become aware of, without expressing this, and being prepared to provide at least some degree of explanation as to how they got there.
I think this is a bad habit, and we need to get out of it. Also, simply citing scriptural verses in support of...

Rev_13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
I lost my isp so I will not be able to follow the posts much but I will check in when I can. I am serious about this. It brings up another question that I may bring up later. Care to expand on your yes or no answer? Please do.
Thanks for posting.
So, because of the bible telling of Satan and his angels being thrown in the lake of fire proving the victory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Does not remove the fact, that darkness, and evil still exist with-in us humans. Jesus Christ is the only one to be able to cast a light on the darkness and the evil of the heart. Jesus Christ is the light of all man kind.
As human beings we have a choice to do wrong. Eve was beguiled by Satan in the Garden, but she made a choice when she was enticed, and tempted by her own lust.
James 1:14 : But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
Darkness still exist today.

And while Satan...
17 God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order
that the world might be saved through Him.
18 The one who believes in Him is not condemned; but whoever does not believe
has been condemned already, because he has not put his trust in the name of
the one and only Ben-Elohim.
19 Now this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men loved
the darkness instead of the light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come to the light, so that
their deeds will not be exposed.
21 But whoever practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be made known
that his deeds have been accomplished in God.
