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.
It is not my intention to cause an argument or division among the faithful with that question just discussion in a Christian and civil manner.
I have always simply posted the Word of God as it is written. I post this question in order to properly attempt to teach the Word of God....PEROID!
1 Timothy 3:1-2.........
"This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. 2A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach".
According to the written Word of God, a Pastor can only be a "Male/Man".
Now, before anyone argues that point or disagree with me, remember that the "One" who said..."In the beginning God created the...
Is it sin if we break rules such as this:
Account sharing is not allowed for Netflix. Yet, I share my account with my cousin because they are in a poor financial situation but wants to watch some shows. I broke the company rule, did I sin?
Another one is this: account sharing is not allowed, but my mom struggles with language so I use her account to do what she wants to accomplish (e.g., publish an advertisement for her property or something).
Does faith justify?
(Note: I am not asking because I don't know the answer).
Some say that faith does not justify.
However, Scripture says we a man is justified by faith.
“Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.”
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:”
“Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.” (Galatians 2:16).
“Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ,...
Could America be inching closer to civil war?
For the past four years, America has been at war with itself. The United States has reached a point in which the divisions between Democrats and Republicans far outweigh what unites us as a country. Taking the politics out of the 2016 election, Trump directly wielded racism and xenophobia as the driving forces behind his platform. He then used his first term in office to expand the chasm in our nation, exposing the hostile division that had always been present. The 2020 election will be the most consequential in the recent history of the United States, determining whether America will be fractured under Trump’s fascist government or united under Joe Biden’s more progressive one.
I didn’t know where to put this so I’ll put it here. Many atheists will attack Christians online or in person. They will say everything we believe is false and get so mad when we believe in it. They seek out Christians to mock. If they truly believed Christianity was false, then why would they attack it so much? I don’t believe in aliens, and I don’t go around attacking people that believe in them. (When I say attack I mean with words not physically.)
I was thinking and wondering about centering or maybe balance. Is there such a thing as balance or finding one's center in Christianity? I know in some religions there are those things and I got to wonder if Christianity has something similar or if Christianity is different all together

I would like some explanation on how these verses were mistranslated.
Jeremiah 19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:
Jeremiah 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.
Genesis 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
1 Samuel 15:35 And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death:...
A) and bound him a thousand years(Revelation 20:2)
B) and after that he must be loosed a little season(Revelation 20:3)
C) which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands(Revelation 20:4)
D) and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years(Revelation 20:4)
It only stands to reason that if Amils are correct that all of these events precede the 2nd coming, there should be other Scriptures in Revelation involving each of these things.
1) Which passage/s in Revelation do Amils use to show when A) begins?
2) Which passage/s in Revelation do Amils use to show when B) begins?
3) Which passage/s in Revelation do Amils use to show when C) is occurring...
I am posting this in General Theology because we agree that God’s knowledge of all events, past and future, is inexhaustible. Nothing that has come to pass, or will come to pass, is outside of His innate knowledge.
With that said, there is not a single person whose final disposition is unknown to God. He knows all who will be saved, and all who will not be saved. Since He knows this, nothing can change these facts.
So the question is, since God knows who will be saved, and nothing can change this, why do we (or should we) evangelize? If God knows someone will be lost for eternity, what’s the point? They will never believe regardless of how much preaching we do.
Open for discussion.
