  6. 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.

  1. Conforming To The Perfect Image

    "For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren." (Romans 8:29 AMPC) … The good that God intended to achieve in our lives from every experience is for us to be conformed to the image of His dear Son (Romans 8:28-29). Has God foreordained everyone or some selected few to be conformable...
  2. Struggle, Failure, Grace

    Struggle, failure, grace In our struggles, we wake up to choice, in failure, we grow in trust, in growth we see grace at work, giving thanks-Br.MD
  3. Alcohol ~ The 3rd Leading Preventable Cause Of Death

    People don't think enough about their responsibility to be good examples to others. If we do things that lead others into sin, we are partially responsible for their sin. So if you drink, and your example leads others to drink, and they get drunk and kill themselves or someone else, YOU are partially to blame. That is a pretty heavy thought.
  4. Good Or Bad, It Will End In Praises

    "We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose." (Romans 8:28 AMPC) The kind of knowing here must be experiential. The experiential knowledge of whom God is will give us a different level of confidence. The confidence that makes us to rest on His promises and plans for our lives. Actually what He has in store for us are...
  5. Prayer Is The Doorway

    Prayer is the doorway The human heart is often divided, wounded, angry, fearful. Grace slowly heals, prayer is the doorway for inner freedom-Br.MD
  6. Forgiveness Is More Important Than Being Healed

    I believe that if we are right with God, we won't be afraid to die. We will accept LIFE or DEATH, whichever God deems best, as His will for us. Yes, we should do ALL on our part to live by eating right and making sure our lifestyle is in harmony with Biblical teachings...that is SHOWING OUR FAITH - FAITH IN ACTION....then we should trust God with the outcome. I believe that many are afraid to die, because they KNOW they are not ready to meet God.
  7. Cultivating An Effective Prayer Life

    "And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will." (Romans 8:27 AMPC) The Lord Himself searches our hearts. He thoroughly investigate our hearts in order to determine our intentions. Our intentions as humans are never hidden from God. The Holy Spirit intercede and plead on our behalf according to the will of God....
  8. Koinonia: Greek For Fellowship

    Koinonia (pronounced koi·no·nia) is a term commonly used today to describe fellowship opportunities offered through church services or events. However, in my desire to gain a deeper understanding the meaning of koinonia, I began studying the term as used in the scriptures. Much to my amazement, I found koinonia was used in various ways to explain the supernatural bond shared among those who are in the Body of Christ, or as referred to throughout this post, those who are "in Christ." Equally...
  9. The New Birth And The New Creature

    Please read John 3:1-21, then read it out loud and read it a third time, writing it down, if you like, to ensure you remember it. The good news that Jesus proclaimed was that he came, not only to give forgiveness, but freedom. He came, not only to give you a second chance, but a change. A new nature and a new beginning. The person that you are now; that which is flesh and blood cannot inherit eternal life, but you can if you receive the life that comes from Jesus Christ. There are many...
  10. Ever-present Helper

    "So too the [Holy] Spirit comes to our aid and bears us up in our weakness; for we do not know what prayer to offer nor how to offer it worthily as we ought, but the Spirit Himself goes to meet our supplication and pleads in our behalf with unspeakable yearnings and groanings too deep for utterance." (Romans 8:26 AMPC) The Holy Spirit, whom we received at new birth, is a Helper. He is standing by to help us all the time if we ask Him for it. He is ready to help against our weaknesses. The...
  11. This Is Our Lot

    This is our lot In strength or weakness, fullness and emptiness, this is our lot, but God is always YES our strength in our weakness-BrMD
  12. My Views On God.

    Many years ago I read the following book, and it did little to bring me closer to God: "The Intellectuals Speak Out About God: A Handbook for the Christian Student in a Secular Society", (September 1, 1984), by Roy Abraham Varghese (Editor). I respect the Bible, and occasionally read a Scripture if it has been referred to me by someone in conversation or writing, or if I have a notion and want to read what the Bible says about it, but again this does little to bring me closer to God. All...
  13. Perceptions

    Perceptions When talking to people about their inner lives and how they pray and process, I find that I have talked to no one who fits into any kind of preconceived all size fits all spirituality. Each person is unique in how they deal with the mystery of who they are and how they relate to God. I believe that the concept of God is like the concept people will have towards any public figure. It varies from one person to another. So perceptions of the public figure will be positive,...
  14. Hope Of Eternal Salvation

    "For in [this] hope we were saved. But hope [the object of] which is seen is not hope. For how can one hope for what he already sees?" (Romans 8:24 AMPC) We were saved in the hope that has the Father glorified His Son, He will also glorify us. Hope is to expect with confidence (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). We must be persuaded to expect this with confidence in God. If is here and now, it is no longer hope. Hope is the rope that connects us to the future. Once it is intact, we will surely...
