It always seems very strange to me that humans are such a creative species and imagine all kinds of things that can never happen. Science seems to be right about just about everything we can see with our natural eyes. It really makes me wonder. Is our world really so cut and dry or does God just hide things from us? Or is Science right?
How is the character (or personality) of YHWH, like the character (or personality) of Jesus Christ...?
a song by Bob Dylan called "Ring them Bells". Seems to have a Christian theme and Christian references. Does anyone know what they mean?
Ring them bells ye heathen from the city that dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries cross the valleys and streams
For they're deep and they're wide
And the world is on its side
And time is running backwards
And so is the bride
Ring them bells Saint Peter where the four winds blow
Ring them bells with an iron hand
So the people will know
Oh it's rush...
On April 28th, I'll be beginning my 33 Day Total Consecration to Jesus living through Mary, which will conclude on May 31st, the Feast of the Visitation!
In preparation for this consecration, I thought I would challenge Protestants by making a case for the Mariology present in the Visitation:
"39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechari′ah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting...
There is a Temporal Hell and a Permanent one, as documented in the following:
The Bible teaches us, the real existence of hell is irrefutably taught in Scripture as both a place of the wicked dead and a condition of retribution for unredeemed man. It is plain that 'to die in sin' is a dreadful thing. [e.g. Ez.3:18; NIV footnote].
The nature of hell is indicated by the repeated reference to eternal punishment [Mt.25:46], eternal fire [Mt.18:8, Jude 7], everlasting chains [Jude 6], the pit...
The book of Revelation is in fact, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. It is as textually documented, a book of prophecy, which is not all apocalyptic by any means. In which the words of Jesus were: "Write, therefore what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later," according to Rev.1:19.
Following the introductory preface for the book in Rev.1, the first part pertains to the one body of Christ, divided into seven church characteristics over the entire church age, as documented...
Firstly I hope this is in the correct forum.
I have two passages that seem to be in conflict.
The first one forbids a practice and the second one seems to show the apostles practicing what is forbidden.
Can anyone clarify this for me?
Deuteronomy 18:10. "Let no-one be found among you who practices......divination."
Acts 1:26 "Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles"
My lazy attempts to seek the Lord are either motivated by fear of hell or done out of guilt. I sometimes feel guilty for ignoring God so I pray. I don't seek him because I love him or want him. I seek him out of selfish ambition. I've asked that he help change my perspective on him so that I can love and trust him but my heart has grown harder against him. Are my attempts to seek him in vain?
