    Do not hate the sinner

    "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." (in Luke 23:34) "And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma." (Ephesians 5:2) So, He loved sinners, and He was sweet about it. Well, there were...

    Thoughts on 1 Corinthians 11:10?

    Yes, what ever would the angels have to do with this? Well, the holy angels, to my knowledge, are perfectly submissive to God, all the time. And therefore they are so powerful . . . since they are so submissive to God's almighty power. So, if a lady is submissive to God, she is flowing...

    What denominations are similar to Baptists?

    maybe There are people who believe in predestination but we do not consider ourselves to be Calvinists. What matters is the "therefore" of what you believe < I mean, if I believe in predestination, therefore . . . what? How does this affect how I live and love? We need the right people who...

    Is God Sovereign Over All Things?

    no He made it all; plus He is managing it to stay in existence. God is the All-Worker, Creator, Father of spirits, All-loving, Family caring and sharing love > "God is love" (in 1 John 4:8&16)

    Full deception gives the deceiver full control?

    Things happen so deceivers get found out. But there can be cases where they get full control of certain people. And what they lose is not worth what they get. "'He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.'" (John 12:25) "God...

    Trump fined nearly $1M for ‘revenge’ lawsuit against Hillary Clinton

    But the fact he is somehow connected with Bill Clinton could make you so you aren't impartial about his ability to be impartial. If I have been informed correctly, Donald Trump's administration chose some number of federal judges and loaded the Supreme Court with a conservative majority; and...

    Well, it could be like how animals just watch out for themselves, some just eating, while others are killing in order to get food. And they can fight quite a bit over mating and nesting territories.

    What does it mean “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”?

    I think of what can happen if a wooden house is built on soft dirt. One part of the house can start to sink faster than another end of the house. And the house can be even twisting. And without doing what Jesus says, including for how to love, people can get quite twisted and therefore in...

    A believing soul…..

    Well, I think it is understood, that God means dying with Jesus . . . not the way people die in their sins. And the way Jesus has taken people to death is not how certain evil people have led people to their deaths because they did what those evil people had them doing. For us, it is good how...

    Many lost.

    So - - - Jesus gives us the "Golden Rule", right along with how many will not find the narrow way. I think of this > Jesus is God's own Son, and here He is talking with us and saying to do to others what you want them to do to you. And Jesus being here to talk with people is God's...

    "as a nursing mother" . . .

    "But we were gentle among you, just as a nursing mother cherishes her own children ." (1 Thessalonians 2:7) This how Paul and Silvanus and Timothy say they related with the children of God in Thessalonica. Possibly, God used nursing mothers to help these great men see how our Father would have...

    The Physical Presence of Christ in the Eucharist

    So, Jesus does say > "'Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.'" (John 6:54) Now what matters is what Jesus really means. With this, He says > "he who feeds on Me will live because of Me" > in John 6:57. So, I see that Jesus does...

    Entering Into His Rest

    And with caring for others, we do works . . . of love. So, works are not totally out of the picture. Jesus says, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let Him deny Himself, and take up His cross daily, and follow Me." (in Luke 9:23) So, I would say "rejection of self" has to do with what Jesus...

    What did Jesus do?

    This is an interesting switch :) I have heard ones saying to not be so heavenly that we are of no earthly good :) By the way . . . what is good? I understand that if we simply do what God has us do, He will bring His results. I think of how this worked with Abraham. He offered up his son...

    What did Jesus do?

    There are times when I have have not been voting, really, for the candidate . . . whom I didn't even know > how can we really know someone making a show? We see how well a number of humans are doing in the United States, in choosing whom they marry. And they have spent maybe a lot of time with...

    Entering Into His Rest

    "by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified" (in Galatians 2:16). "not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit." (Titus 3:5) "we who first trusted in Christ" (in Ephesians...

    Justified by Faith BUT

    Part of this can be that repentance is a person's change from not having faith to having faith.

    Unsecure Elections? HERE'S a solution

    Maybe because the riggers have things rigged so that doesn't happen :) I think I have seen a political party rig the election so that party lost . . . by running obviously unfit and unqualified candidates. I would say each party has taken at least one turn to do this, exchanging the favor. And...

    The vanities of worldly preoccupation.

    1 Peter 5:7 says > "casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7) So, yes, our Father in Heaven cares for us. He cares for us better than we can care about our own selves and about ones who are close to us! So we need, then, to be humble not to boast how much we might...
