I love the Word/word.
In this thread i will be quoting scriptures that teach the value of scripture.
This is my favorite i think
Psalm 1New King James Version (NKJV)
BOOK ONE: Psalms 1—41
The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly
1 Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be...
I'm going to say something very controversial and then regret it later. Our human understanding of God depicts Him in such a light that He is worse than the most righteous humans. For example, most humans would never think to send a person to hell. Unless they got that from the Bible.
If we seek to emulate God according to our own understanding, not necessarily what God actually is, do we limit our moral ability? If so, how can we stop ourselves from doing just that?
Just to get some other opinions on this. I read in so many places, where it is stated that the third temple will be built in the end times, and that the antichrist will come into it and say he is God.
Was not the Third Temple established when Jesus answered the Question,"what sign are you going to give us, and he answered, destroy this temple and in three days rebuild it", which was the three days before he rose and the temple being Him and those who believe in him? Aren't we the third Temple?
I believe we have no sin, as said in John 1:29 & John 16:8 KJV, and that we all are destined for the afterlife. However, we will all be judged according to our works, as predicated by our, "new commandment," in John 13:34.
So how will the church extract money from the masses without sin? It must re-invent sin by changing the meaning of, "faith in Christ Jesus," in Ephesians 2:8, to the faith of the believer. With this new doctrine we have, "sin," and with sin you get death and power. This...
In discussing Luke 1, and especially Mary’s visit with Elizabeth, a little of the writing of St. Ambrose from the 4th century was shared with me as “TEACHING SINCE EARLY UNITED CHRISTIANITY”:
"The grace of the Holy Spirit does not admit of delays. And Mary’s arrival and the presence of her Son quickly show their effects: As soon as Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting her child leapt in her womb and she was filled with the Holy Spirit.
See the careful distinction in the choice of words....
I often hear the argument that "I believe in God, because without God there would be no objective standards for morality, truth, etc."
This seems to be the silliest argument I have heard for God's existence. I agree that life would be simpler with some objective standards from God, but that doesn't imply that God exists. Is there more to this argument that I have missed?
I am about 50 years old. I have 5 kids who are now all grown. I have numerous friends with children who are millennials and I must notice that it appears that few of them express faith in church and religion.
Even in homes where they read the bible aloud and constantly were taught about it growing up, the vast majority diss church and religion. Out of my 5 kids, none go to church...ever. Three are living with someone before marriage.
None of them are truly bad people, its just that they...
I need advice please. Should I move out and end all contact with my toxic father?
My father claims to be a devout Christian, and he is also an ordained Christian minister, ordained in the Korean Presbyterian Church in America (KPCA).
My father is constantly verbally abusive to me, his eldest child.
My father wants to control my life.
My mother is not a controlling person, but she does not want me to move out of state to attend graduate school.
My mother and father both want me to...
I feel at 25 I still somewhat cringe I guess because Idk maybe I'm not emotionally ready. But I also feel my anxiety has walls built around me to where I can't feel anything, you know?
I just feel weird bc everyone my age is just going crazy about sex ...and one of the reasons I don't mind not having a bf is because I feel sex would be apart of that relationship and I just don't crave sex as much as other people...my libido is very low.
I just wonder as a Christian what is a healthy view...
Revelation 12: Heavenly Sign to Appear in 2017 - What could it mean?
Based on the following prophecy, I believe the year 2017 could be a very interesting year. In this post I’m going to share three reasons why I believe the passage below relates to Daniel’s 70th week. The final seven years of this age could very possibly begin this year, in the fall of 2017. I’m sure that some will misunderstand what I just said, so let me be perfectly clear. The sign or wonder in the passage below...
