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.
I'll try to make this as short as possible, but I am seriously looking for answers and opinions. My fiance and I have been living together for about 2.5 years (please don't go into this issue, because this isn't the issue I need help with). I have realized this wasn't the right way to go and probably made things harder on us, but it's a long story and it was the only way to economically make it work since my fiance had no money, job, or car at the time. I have since repented to God and we are currently not sleeping together until we are officially married by a pastor. The only issue is...my fiance doesn't agree with us signing a state license because he believes this is agreeing with the state that THEY are the ones who give...
The doctrine of Solus Christus is “Jesus Christ is the only savior of sinners and his atoning sacrifice is sufficient to save them.”
"Save" here does not just mean the initial forgiveness of sins. It includes all of salvation. Regeneration, saving faith, repentance, sanctification, perseverance throughout life, resurrection, and final salvation.
The doctrine teaches that Jesus' work on the cross and his continued work from heaven to apply the benefits of the cross is sufficient to save sinners. There's nothing we need to add to Jesus' work in order to be saved. He has done it all. He purchased it all at the cross.
Do you believe that Jesus is enough in this sense? Or do you believe that you need to add something to Jesus' work in...
And, if so, what specifically does that mean to you?
I just read this article....and agree that, in a way only God can do, God allows humanity to make our own choices.....but in His omnipotence and omniscience.....His will *will* be done (we've already seen much evidence of this recorded in Scripture).
From linked article-------->LOVE AT THE GATE – Luke 19:37-44 The entrance of Christ into the city of Jerusalem on that day so long ago was a divine expression of God’s love for you and me. There are two aspects of God’s love on display here: God’s love is intentional, and God’s love is providential.
The entrance of Christ into the city was anything but “ambiguous” (uncertain, unclear). It was a manifestation of God’s intentional and...
Was Solomon Saved?
Yes, I believe Solomon was saved for several key reasons.
#1. Solomon wrote books in our Bible. We do not have a book of Judas or a book of Balaam.
#2. We know Solomon wrote Ecclesiastes and the conclusion of those writings was warning the young youth who goes after lustful desires will face God's judgment (Ecclesiastes 11:9) The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). This I believe is Solomon writing about himself.
#3. Solomon is called beloved of his God in Nehemiah 13:26.
#4. Jesus Christ never mentions Solomon in...
1. If Christ's death atoned for every fallen human who ever lived or will live &
2. Everyone whose death Christ atoned for will be saved, then
3. Every fallen human who ever has or will exist will be saved.
True or false?
Every Sunday most Churches collect money from the congregation. But, how do we know Church uses the money correctly?
Many churches do not publish its financial report.
Some questions here:
1. We do not know how much money is in the church's account.
2. What is the monthly expenses of church.
3. What does the church plan to do with the money?
I stopped to help a elderly couple on the side of the road the other day as they had a flat. As I was helping them, I mentioned I was on my way to church and what a beautiful the Lord had blessed us with and he stated, that he couldn't go to church because he was always ask to leave, because he always started arguments during service. I said why do you do that?
He said that he was "LDS" and that he was a "priest in the order of Melchizedek" and that he always proved others to be wrong in their faith. To make a long story short, I was flabbergasted that someone could think this way? Does all Mormon priest believe this?
BTW, I didn't give him 10% etheir.
How do we obey this scripture? What do we exhort each other to do? Thank you in advance.
Hebrews 10:25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
The Evil One put that idea in people's heads.
Bible Gateway passage: Isaiah 14:12-17 - New King James Version
The verse says nothing about Lucifer being the devil.
And it contradicts what we know of the devil, one of which is that the very name simply means "Day Star" -- which Satan most certainly is not.
