One problem I see with many who relate themselves to the struggle with sin of Romans 7 is there is a chapter break before they see that Romans 8:2 is freedom from the struggle with sin. They even believe chapter 7 is Paul's constant struggle with sin as an apostle! But there is no struggle when a person has been born again of the Spirit as Paul was. But there was a struggle under the law when he was still in the unborn-again flesh, without the Spirit of Christ in him. Those on the forum who relate so much to the struggle may be in the process of being saved, but haven't completely surrendered unto true repentance in order to receive the infilling Holy Spirit and be saved.

Trump shows off new rapid coronavirus test kit in Rose Garden, as HHS says 1 million Americans tested
President Trump and the Department of Health and Human Services [HHS] announced Monday that the United States has tested over 1 million people for the coronavirus, as the president unveiled a new rapid test kit for the contagion aimed at providing results within five minutes.
Speaking from the White House’s Rose Garden, Trump said that reaching 1 million tests is “a milestone in our war against the coronavirus.”
Trump’s announcement on the new rapid test kit from Abbott Laboratories comes just days after the company said that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had given them emergency clearance to produce its cartridge-based test....
Hi all. I've had a look at a few threads here which deal with the old law and how it correlates to the new testament. There seems to be a growing number of people today who want to go back to the old law as though the old ways are superior to what Jesus taught. I believe this video does a pretty good job of explaining why we should not keep going back to the law because Jesus is the fulfillment of all the promises to Abraham. I'd like to hear what others think and I look forward to discussing the issues.
I do understand the Bible say we need to renew our mind with scripture.
I also understand the Bible say that if our mind full of negative, our actions will be negative.
So my question, if our mind is full of worldy, is it will enter to our hearts? Then actions will be wordly?
OR It will be just mind only, then manifest to actions?
What is also the connection of our mind to the heart to actions?
With Covid-19, we have seen how many churches, even megachurches who strongly believe that the signs and wonders of Jesus in the 4 Gospels are still present for us today, having to switch to online service broadcasts, and stopping their healing groups from going around praying for healing.
What happen to these churches who often teach us the following:
Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;18 They shall take up...
(CLV) Lk 16:17
Yet it is easier for heaven and earth to pass by than for one serif of the law to fall.
After Yahshua ascended, James, Yahshua's brother, ordered Paul to make temple sacrifices to prove that he was obedient to the Torah.
(CLV) Ac 21:23
This, then, which we are saying to you, do. With us are four men having a vow on them.
(CLV) Ac 21:24
Taking these along, be purified together with them, and bear their expenses, that they should be shaving their heads, and all will know that what they have been instructed concerning you is nothing, but you also are observing the elements and you yourself are maintaining the law.

Around 25 years ago, my local County Library had a section devoted to Mormon Journal of Discourses--mainly from sermons of Brigham Young. Then, before resigning my membership in the Mormon Church, I felt I had to really delve deep into what my former Mormon church taught and them pit that information against the Bible and my new-found Faith in what I found to be God's Only Word.
I had heard about the Blood Atonement practice and although the Mormon Church mostly tries to minimize it---it was very much a practice in the late 1800's. And, it still is somewhat practiced today as Ted Bundy and Gary Gilmore, of course chose the firing squad for their methods of execution. It is the only State that gives one that option-btw.
As I had...
I've been a Christian for almost 5 years, I read my bible every day and am now looking to get deeper into my studies by investing in a Study Bible.
Could anyone give any pointers to what they consider the best study bible and why?
PS Dear Admins, I forgot to say, I hope this is the correct forum for this question. Please move to a more suitable forum if it isn't.

I know, I know. It's all fake journalism that they filmed on a sound stage in Arizona where they did the moon landing shots. But really?!!!
It's becoming so sad that all one can really do anymore is shrug and walk away from the presidential press conferences hoping that his end is nigh.

Because of Covid-19? I’ve heard of 3 situations, from friends of friends, but in all the cases the person was a complete mess before getting Covid. I just want to get a feel for how many perfectly healthy people end up in ICU, outside of news outlets.
