“MULTIPLE CONFIRMED FATALITIES at Manchester Arena,” David Leavitt wrote on Twitter Monday. “The last time I listened to Ariana Grande I almost died too.”
I find this a fascinating subject; what has inspired me today is this: What Is the Abomination of Desolation?
I do not agree with every thing said in this video but it is a starting point for a conversation.
There are two parts, the abomination and the desolation
Using the info provided by UCG, the Greek king orders the Jews to stop keeping the Law and to do things the Law forbids; this was repeated during the inquisitions when people were forbidden from keeping the Sabbath; I expect the Law of God to be forbidden again. But is God concerned with what the Pagans do, or is the abomination to do with the Jews abandoning God.
In the example of the Jews rebuilding the Temple and practicing the Law in the superseded manner that denies...
By far the three largest nontrinitarian churches are The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ("Mormons"), Jehovah's Witnesses and the Iglesia Ni Cristo, though there are a number of other smaller groups, including Christadelphians, Christian Scientists, Dawn Bible Students, Living Church of God, Oneness Pentecostals, Members Church of God International, Unitarian Universalist Christians, The Way International, The Church of God International and the United Church of God.
The United Church of God, an International Association (UCGIA or simplyUCG) is a religious denomination based in the United States, an offshoot of the Worldwide Church of God (WCG) founded by Herbert W.Armstrong.
One of the references cited by nontrinitarians...
I have a friend who wants to receive the Holy Spirit. He says he does not know how to do it. I have prayed with him and told him he must keep asking for it. Is there a sure fire way that I do not know of..... to receive the Holy Spirit. I should add that he does have mental illness and would this get in the way of receiving the Holy Spirit? I do not think so, but he seems to be blocked. He goes to church more often than me and wants to be a Christian.
I recently posted here Faith & Believe Help
In a nutshell I am asking with help coming to God because I really want to believe in him but my head keeps demanding concrete proof which I guess can neve come.
Can I ask God to show me or is this considered sinful. I cant just accept you have to have faith its just not how I was made. All my life I have been curious of things and have to find the answers.
I am not saying I want him to appear in front of me but just want to find away to take my wanting to believe to actual belief.
I am trying to pray (well more talk) but It feels so strange.
A good friend of mine (who is Pentacostal) has some very confused ideas about what Catholics believe. I mentioned to him that there are people who call themselves "Christian Wiccans" and believe that Mary is a goddess, and he said that it sounds like they've got some Catholic ideology behind them. I'm like, uh, Catholics don't think that Mary is a goddess. He said, "They think she's the Queen Of Heaven and the mother of God. So yeah, they kinda do." He thinks that, while Catholics don't actually refer to her as a goddess, she's given the same status minus the name. I tried to explain that Catholics DO NOT believe that Mary is an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent being and that there's a big difference between honoring Mary more...
Jesus said this to the Pharisees, (and applies to modern day pharisees) "I well know that you do not have the Love of God in you..."
Do you have the Love of God in you...?
If so, what does that look like, and what is that like...? If not, why do you think not...?
How is this different from what people may think...?
I think this "having the Love of God in you" is paramount, I think it trumps any other laws or rules... This Love of God in you trumps even sin... Or can declare you innocent of your sins...
Even if you (say) you keep the law and do not sin, at least intentionally and don't consider yourself a sinner anymore, without the Love of God in you, it means absolutely nothing...
So, what is this Love of God in you, look...
The Year Of Jubilee (Leviticus 25 verses 8 to 22)
8 And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years.
9 Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land.
10 And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
