    Fellowship True spiritual warfare (read the ruleset before you post)

    Dealing with intrusive thoughts that are ungodly and aggressive. In Romans 7 Paul speaks of a type of sin that is separate from him, it is not I who sin but the sin within me. This sin that indwells the tent body of the born again Christian, tries it's damnedest to take on the identity of...

    Excited about 2023! The year of increase.

    Yes, anyone who says faith or trust is not hard work, just hasn't met people.

    Excited about 2023! The year of increase.

    Not sure what that baptist rant was about, but. My point of reference is, in the end of all things, only three things will remain: Faith, hope, and love. These things when perceived by the born again individual become tangible building blocks for the kingdom of God. So working with faith...

    Ignore function not always working correctly since the upgrade

    If I ignore someone, they will see my threads. And after the first post, I will see all responses except theirs.

    Excited about 2023! The year of increase.

    Reflecting on John 6:29 and the story of Martha and Mary in Bethany, I meant faith, being the one work that was necessary.

    Ignore function not always working correctly since the upgrade

    They cannot see your blog if you implement the correct restrictions, but they can see your public posts. They also cannot send you messages. This is my understanding, but if it has been improved in my ignorance, I don't mind.

    Can we teach people discipline and self control?

    People need a reason to change, it has to be their own.

    Can we teach people discipline and self control?

    It's been observed that behavioral modification programs do not help people modify their behavior. People keep trying it because it's like pressing a button, actually dealing with people is hard.

    Ignore function not always working correctly since the upgrade

    That would be a new feature I wasn't aware of. I asked for this some time ago, and was advised it only blocks you from seeing their content.

    Ignore function not always working correctly since the upgrade

    Just to say, ignore doesn't work like facebook. If you place someone on ignore, they can still see your content.

    Defining praise and worship

    Basically, it's like saying abase yourself, and give commendation. The common application nowadays is singing songs though, which is a form of praise.

    Reincarnation is FALSE. Resurrection is TRUE.

    I've found that resurrection applies to humans, and reincarnation applies to angels who we make the acquaintance of unawares.

    Brother Knowledge...

    I don't think it's part of the trinity. Solomon didn't know about that. He had all manner of earthly knowledge, but his lack of spiritual knowledge resulted in depression and idolatry later on in life.

    Brother Knowledge...

    Looks like the passage is saying if you have wisdom and knowledge, your good sense will keep you out of trouble. The context of the proverb is the teachings and a life spent applying them, and applying what you learned from applying them.

    "The Present Truth"

    Some translators do not like this implication so translate not using the words "now" or "present" so perhaps debatable. However, seeing how the early church writings discuss certain matters such as the secret gospel of mark, and then all of a sudden stop discussing it around the time quotes...

    "The Present Truth"

    Present truth comes from the KJV and NKJV bibles mostly in the bible verse 2 Peter 1:12. https://biblehub.com/2_peter/1-12.htm So it was not made up in the 1990s, it illustrates that there was a progressive revelation going on in the early church.

    Yep, there will always be impostors. The purpose of this thread however, is to track prophecies made about this year so we can revisit them later on.

    So energy saving on xbox is 'woke'?

    I guess from the right's perspective. But in terms of how it works socially, it doesn't fit.

    So energy saving on xbox is 'woke'?

    In the same way environmentalism is not woke, the edge browser neither has "the edge" nor is it "edgey."
