There is someone in my church that tends to have a very dominating personality; always acts like they are in charge, talks down to people etc.. I'm beginning to lose my patience with this person and not sure how to deal with it. This person is my brother in Christ, but is admittedly difficult to be around at times. Any biblical advice? I don't think confronting would work very well.
I want to hear other people's thoughts on the last day when Jesus said that He would raise up those who believe in Him. John 6:39-40
We know that the resurrection, and our gathering to Him, happens on the day of the Lord based on 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 so that tells me that the last day is synonymous with the day of the Lord, when we are resurrected (or changed). What I'd like to discuss is what the day of the Lord is the last day of, in other words, why is the day of the Lord referred to as the last day? The last day of what?
I have two thoughts on this and I think that both are possible meanings and applicable. Both have to do with the day of the Lord being a day of demarcation.
The day of the Lord is the day when the earth is...
At a beach resort in South Padre Island, a 35 year old Alexander Jennes Downing verbally attacked and threatened an Arab-American family that was enjoying a family reunion on the beach at the resort.
The man shouted epithets and swore incessantly at them, despite there being several children there, as young as 2 years old. He made sexual comments and homosexual comments, swore that Donald [expletive] Trump is "gonna get" the Arab-American family, threatened them with violence, called them...
Hello, I have been a Christian for about a year and I have been surrounding myself with scripture and have done everything I can to grow close with the Lord and to fully devote my life to serving Him. I am 18 and I don't have a car yet or any way to get to church on Sundays, even though I desperately wish I could. My family isn't part of the faith much at all and we don't talk about Jesus or God and we don't even say Grace before meals (I do but I am the only one). I have been wanting to be...
I truly need advice from other pastor's wives and/or godly mature women who are genuinely interested in giving wise advice, not merely in having something to say or in wanting to speak to something with which they have little or no experience.
I am the wife of a pastor in a small town. A younger, blonde woman has been attending our church and making it clear to myself and other women by how she acts that she is interested in my husband.
The first day I saw her, she came up to my husband...
Mormonism teaches God is a resurrected man from another planet who attained Godhood. The bible teaches that God created the Universe and everything in it:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God...
Mormonism teaches Jesus and Satan are brothers. The bible says Jesus created Satan:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made.
Confusion is obviously not from God.
I have posted about my current relationship.
Short version:long distance, met online, he wasn't ready, came back, met in person, dating. He got a new job; became busy and distant. I nagged. Haven't talked to him since Wednesday (I reached out today, no answer).
I have had dreams with him. The 2nd dream is what is going on now (him being quiet and distant) God warned me. This whole situation is troubling because I'm am I love. I have asked and prayed to God if he is with someone else, to let me know so I can walk away. Also, if he's not the one....so I can just let it go. It feels like a full on war in my heart and head.
God spoke to me yesterday through someone who knows nothing of what I'm...
