Just curious. Im 17 and kind of deciding the next step to take with my life. I am a born again and seeking to stay on the narrow path. I'm just about finishing school.. I don't think I want to go to university like everyone else.. there's not much I desire from the world. And plus the bible says in Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Also we are not supposed to love the world nor the things in it... I really hate the way this world...
Blessings to you through Messiah Yahushua, My YAHWEH and My ELOHIM!
My Yahushua said this as translated into the Greek language:
λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς ἐμὸν βρῶμά ἐστιν ἵνα ποιήσω τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πέμψαντός με καὶ τελειώσω αὐτοῦ τὸ ἔργον (mGNT)
Or perhaps this:
λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς Ἐμὸν βρῶμά ἐστιν ἵνα ποιῶ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πέμψαντός με καὶ τελειώσω αὐτοῦ τὸ ἔργον (TR)
In the two versions above, we are given the choice of translating the verb ποιέω as a first person singular aorist subjunctive, ποιήσω, as found in the mGNT, or we can translate the verb ποιέω as a first person singular present subjunctive, ποιῶ, as found in the TR version. "The aorist subjunctive refers to the action (of the verb)...
Politics is by far is the most contentious thing we could ever follow. The bible says that we should not fret when evil men prosper in their wickedness, so why do we fret over politics? Also, the bible teaches that contention and division within the Church is wrong. Why are we divided over politics?
This guy is supposed to be a pastor of the 2nd biggest church in the USA, and yet he blatantly contradicts what the Bible teaches as Facts, and has ten's of thousands that attend his church. This is real scary and should be a warning to all Bible believing Christians, of departing from "the Faith, once and for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 3)
My wife has become a bit despondant due to the state of the world. She is having a bit of an existential crisis.
We have recently had a spate of horrific murders in my country. A guy killed his parents and siblings with an axe, a young girl of three was raped and murdered etc.
She is quite depressed and fearful due to this and has begun to verbalise doubts on the goodness of God, even said she is struggling with faith in His existence even.
This has largely come as a shock to me as she has...
One of the big problems with Calvinism is that you can't know that Jesus died for you without looking at your own faith. How can you trust in Jesus death for you on the cross without knowing he died for you? And the only way for a Calvinist to know for sure is checking his/her own faith. So to me Calvinism starts in the wrong end.
As a Lutheran everything starts at the cross. I know I'm redeemded because Jesus died for all men on the cross. That's the fact, that's where a Lutheran starts. Even if I can't find faith in myself I still know Jesus died for me, and that is a real blessing.
One day we all will lay there waiting for the end. In that moment I don't want there to be any doubt about the fact that Jesus has died for me. If that...

Basically he says that if the thought of the cross does not move you then your heart is dead and you know not God.
Washer has just destroyed my assurance of salvation, and therefore my joy, and therefore made me useless and fruitless as a christian
because sometimes I DO feel apathetic towards the cross, I dont weep with gratitude everytime I think about it, In fact I rarely think about the cross. so what gives washer the right to say im...
Do the Mormon apologists here believe that we are not going to believe what we are reading in your scriptures and from your prophets, and are hearing from other Mormons?
In two different chat conversations Ive had with Mormons recently, I was told by the missionaries that God is an exalted man who became God by "progressing". I was also told that becoming like God means being a god of our own world. That is really strange considering we have Mormon apologists here claiming that Mormons don't believe this. If that is true then why are Mormon missionaries telling me this?
I'll answer my own question. The reason they are telling me this is because that is what your religion teaches and that is what you believe. Maybe you don't have...
The US Supreme Court will be deciding soon (tomorrow the 17th, I believe) to accept or reject a case involving a Colorado baker objecting to being forced to create cakes for same-sex weddings. I believe this will be the first such case to be heard at the SCOTUS level.
Of course this will have enormous ramifications. I am praying for victory for the conscientious objector if the Court grants the petition for consideration.
