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.
God is sovereign, but God made man in His image and likeness. Not that we look like him but just as children take on attributes of their Father, so are we. He has given us dominion over things, and we have free will. God has given us sovereignty over our own life and choices.
Even though God predestined the Hebrew nation to be the chosen people, and even called them His elect, didn't mean they had no free will against rebellion or the ability to choose other gods. So if God's elect can choose to rebel against God and be damned should give those who believe they are predestined to be saved, pause.
Comments with scripture?
Does anyone have any advice on how to conquer the sin of sloth or laziness? I struggle with this. I'm not very good at keeping my home clean and part of that is having two kids. Part of that is needing to go somewhere on nearly every day off I have. But...in all honestly, most of it is laziness. Let's just call it like is. I don't want to be like this anymore. Time is too precious to waste. I have two little ones who deserve better from their mother and need me to be an example. If I ever want to be all that God would have me be I need to break this sin from my life.
Please does anyone have any advice?
Trump administration forbids CDC officials from using 7 words and phrases
Trump administration officials are forbidding officials at the nation's top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases - including "fetus" and "transgender" - in any official documents being prepared for next year's budget.
Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden words at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden words are: "vulnerable," "entitlement," "diversity," "transgender," "fetus," "evidence-based" and "science-based."
tulc(MAGA by pretending things they don't...
Why do i feel like such a weak person? I always have the desire and urge to do something but i dont do it because i feel so lazy and so weak. I feel like if i wasnt like this i could have accomplished something in life. I also feel like i let people walk all over me. I cant speak my mind around others. I feel like such a mess. I never do or say anything right. What is wrong with me?
Senate Parliamentarian Kills Efforts to Lift Rules Against Churches' Political Speech
To be sure, this would have to be undone by the Congress and will have to await the election of individuals that can accomplish this, which is not currently the case. It would take another Trump victory in 2020 and the election of many new conservative faces in congress.
"One out of every 10 Americans is an ex-Catholic. If they were a separate denomination, they would be the third-largest denomination in the United States, after Catholics and Baptists. One of three people who were raised Catholic no longer identifies as Catholic."
At least half of those leaving the Roman Catholic Church become Protestant. Why?
" ... the Catholic church has failed to deliver what people consider fundamental products of religion: spiritual sustenance and a good worship service."
So that's it! The Protestants have a better worship service. I'm not the only person who gets tired of the mumbo jumbo.
Are those who leave mere lukewarm Catholics?
"We are losing the best, not the worst." After all: "They are leaving to get...
I've been watching MMA for quite some time and do really enjoy the sport. That being said, as of late I've been wondering if watching such of a violent sport is wrong. For the most part I've cut out all violent movies in and TV shows in my life (but to be honest I didn't really watch that many to begin with.)
Just to give an idea as to what happens in MMA bouts for the novice I've put some gifs in the spoilers below.
For me the passage comes to mind 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.
16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
My thought process is these men (and women) are destroying...
