I just wanted to share something my fiance' came up with. She is a jewelry designer and has a shop with her daughter. They asked if I had an outlet for some of their items and I told them I would share it with everyone here at CF. So I started them an Etsy Shop account to showcase what they have done. And this is the first items! Check it out and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much! - Rex

I am kind of scared to go to church. I struggle with same-sex attraction and I know that homosexuality is sin. I do not live the lifestyle but I still struggle with lust, which the Bible calls adultery and idolatry. My biggest fear is that the people inside the church will not be very kind to me. I see so many threads of people fighting about homosexuality and most people don't understand the struggles. I know that same-sex attraction is very unnatural and it makes people uncomfortable.
You have many people who are very uncomfortable with homosexuals in the church, but then those of us who want to obey God and be Christians who struggled with the desire see all the fighting and quarreling that the church is having about homosexuality....
This is a bit of a long one. I asked similar before, but began suffering depression to the point I couldn't think to answer, and I apologise. I loved my wife unconditionally, did nothing to instigate our problems. She made a lot of bad choices (details below) she has done a 180 on truly attrotious behaviour and been the perfect; "dream wife" for nearly 5 months now, could not ask for more. I know it's right and proper I reciprocate, problem is, its like my heart isn't invested anymore. Catagorically; I did nothing to instigate this.
I've been with my wife for 17 years - married 11, (M37, F33), two children (3,7), Both Christian for 7 years, within a day or two of marriage she hit me, there were a few more serious incidents, (the...
Here is the crux of all Sunday contentions...
Look at BABerean2's picture of the cross.
See that it portrays an empty cross with the sun about to set.
Well, THAT IS IT, the most satanic deception this world has in its existence witnessed and has swallowed whole for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Billions times billions of people have carried and every second of every day are cherishing the LIE of the empty cross around the neck on their heart. The head of the Christian Church and every one of his worshippers make the token of this LIE of CRUCIFYING THE LORD JESUS CHRIST ANEW AND EVER ANEW UNTIL Jesus Christ shall put a stop to the abominable doctrine when He shall come again and shall not delay the destruction of its practice, the...
• Blaspheme - To speak irreverently about God or sacred things.
And anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but to him who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, It Will NOT Be Forgiven.
• Luke 12:10
I saw a video a couple of years ago on Youtube that had Atheists Purposely and Knowingly blaspheming The Holy Spirit and denying God. They will Never Be Forgiven for what they have done.
Others actually refused to do it and I think it was because they had a little bit of belief that God was real and what they were about to do would seal their fate forever.
I think it's going to be the same way when people take The Mark Of The Beast and Worship The Beast in Future Events. Many are going to do it, but...
Joseph Smith taught:
"Some say I do not interpret the scriptures the same as they do. They say it means the heathen's gods. Paul says there are Gods many and Lords many; and that makes a plurality of Gods, in spite of the whims of all men. Without a revelation I am not going to give them the knowledge of the God of heaven. You know and I testify that Paul had no allusion to the heathen gods. I have it from God, and get over it if you can. I have a witness from the Holy Ghost, and a testimony that Paul had no allusion to the heathen gods in the text."
Sermon by Joseph Smith, Meeting in the Grove, east of the Temple, June 16, 1844
Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 371
Can I ask everyone's opinion about the dreams I have been Having? It started before I ever read the Bible. I always knew Jesus but wasn't educated when I was younger and the first dream I had was all of my friends were actually demons and I was alone the only Christian and they surrounded me and I was terrified then all the sudden the color purple was shining through the window and I wasn't afraid anymore.
Then like a couple months later I had a dream that I was in a cafe full of people and I just said the name Jesus and all but 2 people ran off scared.
I had another that I was taken by a demonic person and he hit someone in his car and wouldn't stop so I said in the name of Jesus stop this car and let me out and he did and I went to...
Women’s ministry and roles in the church
Before I even address this issue ,I want to say at the forefront that women can be functional members of church gatherings and they can speak in the meetings, but there are parameters to this order as well and these become necessary when they overlap with the order of a family and their roles with their husbands and in relation to men in general.
I am fully aware that this understanding is not easily received by many today especially I in the world we live in where women’s lib groups and the roles of men and women have blurred the harmony that can and should exist in this. But as in all things, God’s word and His order is what we should always seek to walk in.
To have woman teachers over men...
"having neither beginning of days nor end of life, being made like the Son of God" (in Hebrews 7:3)
Yes, there are people who understand that Melchizedek was Jesus on this earth, since he has no beginning of days. But this scripture does say he is "like" the Son of God. It does not say he is. But "like", for all I know, could mean that on earth He was "like" how He now is on the throne, no longer in an unresurrected earthen body; so I am open about this.
But, in case you please to explore the possibility that Melchizedek is still on this earth > can you imagine being this guy who can not die? And you have been living on this earth all through past human history, with all the things going on that we have been told about, in history....
I read the "Joseph Smith - History" in the Pearl of Great Price at the weekend and it states that the creeds of the Churches are abominations, and the Churches are all wrong:
“I was answered that I must join none of them [Christian Churches], for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: “they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.”
At the start, it specifically mentions Presbyterians, Baptists and Methodists. I googled this, and found references to similar teaching in the Book...
Are there any studies at all which serve to highlight that marital relations tend to be unstable if both the husband and wife have high IQ's and advanced educational qualifications?
(1) The most famous example is perhaps Albert Einstein and his first wife Mileva Maric, a mathematician who assisted his initial work on Relativity.
Although Einstein and his wife had both studied Mathematical Physics at Zürich his knowledge of mathematics was somewhat lacking compared to his partner - As physics was his main preoccupation to the detriment of mathematical studies as an undergraduate student.
However, they eventually divorced as they were both intellectual competitors, and constantly at loggerheads with each other.
