Hello all this is my first time here. I'm a 20 year old guy a college student. I've never had a girlfriend and don't expect to ever get married because I've always been incredibly shy and rather strange. Currently I'm a virgin and expect to remain so for the rest of my life. The college I go to is a secular college because it's much less expensive but I have a really great friend who happens to be a girl. She's a really devout Christian and so we get along well together. She's sooo pretty too she's got blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair and has a really nice and kind personality. She's a great friend to me and we hang out a lot. Trouble is I can't keep my mind from drifting toward sinful thoughts about her. Often I imagine hugging...
Okay so I'm playing this game on Kongregate. Its called Dungeon Crusher. In this game there are heroes that you can pay real $$$ for that are made up gods. And whenever people refer to them they refer to them as "the gods". This extremely bugs me because I only believe in one God and I think that all people should believe in the same God I do. This game is also completely full of atheists who blaspheme the name of our Lord 50,000 times a day and they keep saying things like "the gods be willing rngesus will give you the drop you need". I find it SO offensive! Then they went on when I got offended and said that people used to sacrifice animals to Jesus so why not sacrifice other things to hope that they get the drop they need? Then I go...
With the passage of the GOP tax bill this week, the Trump administration has scored 81 major achievements in its first year, making good on campaign promises to provide significant tax cuts, boost U.S. energy production, and restore respect to the United States, according to the White House.
And along the way, President Trump even outdid his own expectations and slashed at least 11 major legacy items of former President Barack Obama, including cracking down on the open border, slowing recognition of communist Cuba and effectively killing Obamacare by ending the mandate that everyone have health insurance or face a tax.
For a list of major accomplishments Trump has filled in his first year please click the link below:

“I will pronounce my judgments on my people because of their wickedness in forsaking me, in burning incense to other gods and in worshiping what their hands have made.” – Jeremiah, speaking the Word of the Lord (Jeremiah 1:16 NIV)
“And the people bowed and prayed, to the neon god they made.” – Paul Simon, The Sound of Silence
“And you see and hear how this fellow Paul has convinced and led astray large numbers of people here in Ephesus and in practically the whole province of Asia. He says that gods made by human hands are no gods at all.” – Demetrius (Acts 19:26 NIV)
“Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.” – The Apostle John (1 John 5:21 NIV)
In another thread it was an opinion of some that the rfid chip shown as the mark of the beast was simply fantasy and fearmongering.
So im curious what you think this means, regardless of your disagreements or interpretations, im happy to hear everyone.
The second beast causes fire to come down from heaven, forces people to make images of the first beast, then gives breathe to the image of the first beast so that it may talk. And the image has the power to slay those who will not worship it. And eventually causes everyone to recieve the mark.
What is the image if the beast that is brought to life? My best guess, is that the image of the beast that is given the power to talk and kill those unwilling to worship, would be a form of...
All believers are sealed by God's Holy Spirit, Ephesians 4:30
Sealed believers are protected as the Hebrews were in Egypt from the plagues as seen Revelation 9:4 the evil released is "commanded" not to hurt green vegetation, only those "Without The Seal Of God" will be harmed.
"God Shouts Out Loud" in Revelation 13:9-10
"If Any Man Have An Ear, Let Him Hear"!
""He That Leadeth Into Captivity Shall Go Into Captivity"
"He That Killeth With The Sword Must Be Killed With The Sword"
"Here Is The Patience And The Faith Of The Saints"
If any man tries to hurt the believer he will in return be captive/killed
Here is the "Patience Of The Saints"!
Right after the Antichrist is revealed
"GOD SHOUTS" protection for the saints"!
Im seen groups take the writings.in Timothy about women very seriously. Scripture such as:
But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.
1 Timothy 2:12 NASB
Have been taken to mean that women should not be pastor's and that they are completely subordinate to men.
I have seen other claim that this is just their culture at the time. Unfortunately, I've seen these same groups state that not believing this verses means you don't believe it to be divinely inspired. Which of course calls into question the entire Bible.
So, what are your thoughts, does this cause woman to take a back seat in Christian culture? Does not following this go against God's order? Does not believing this scripture...
I keep hearing people say God loves unconditionally and i don't get it.
There are conditions involved!
Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father. That is a condition.
Belief is a condition. If they don't believe they are condemned already.
God pours out wrath on unbelievers! This sounds like a condition!
So, how does this teaching get so popular? Am i missing something?
here are a few verses on how the Lord is said to hate or abhor people.
The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
Psalms 5:5 (KJV)
The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
Psalms 11:5 (KJV)
The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that...
