Hey guys, I just read an interesting article here:
Who Changed The Sabbath to Sunday?
The summary of it is that it was the Romans who changed it from Saturday to Sunday so:
What will you believe? Whom will you follow? The God of your Bible—or the traditions of men?
How do you guys see this issue please?
Why do you think God shared the story of the rich man and Lazarus?
Luke 16:19-31 King James Version (KJV)
19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me,...
I wonder, why are you all talking about sin all the time? I read so many posts on the homepage about sin. Is this a sin, is that a sin. Why? Not once do I read a post about love. It seems they are not important enough. No, to know what others believe a sin is, that is more important then love. Because we need to know what God thinks is a sin so we can stop doing it and please God. And then we can convict all that do do it. Does nobody understand you please God by loving another? By having faith? Why do you all talk more about evil then about good? Dont you all know that sin is evil and that love is good? Because God is love.
You all do understand that it is written that we should not concentrate on the fleshly things but on spiritual...
I have asthma. Pretty bad asthma especially with the extended summer we have had here in Florida. I have had to use my rescue inhalers more times than I should as I ran out of my maintenance inhaler. My mom was giving me hers for the past couple of years because she has COPD, but hasn't really needed them. Now, her COPD has gotten worse and the doctor is taking her off of the one that I use and putting her on one that she absolutely needs.
So I went to urgent care on Saturday because I thought I had found a way to get my inhaler through the medication manufacturer for free. However, when I got to the pharmacy I found out that's not the case. Because my health insurance won't pay for any part of this inhaler the program won't cover the...
“For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Matthew 24:21.
As we begin to discuss about the great tribulation, it is important we first understand the meaning of the keyword ‘tribulation’ as used in the opening text…
The word translated as ‘tribulation’ in the opening text, is from the Greek word ‘thlipsis’, meaning—pressure. It means pressure—either literally or figuratively. Other synonyms of the word tribulation as translated in the New Testament are: affliction, anguish, burden, persecution, and trouble.
All through the ages, since the fall of Adam and Eve, mankind has faced several kinds of tribulation and disaster. Some God-made—by his sovereign...
You would think these people would pick up a Bible from time to time. If you fornicate, commit sodomy, lie continually, love the world (secular stuff), booze it up, etc... Guess what? You are unregenerated and dead.
Saving faith is action. Pick up your mat and walk. Lip service means diddly poo.
So sick of fakes who look just like the world.
As long as I can remember, I have been attracted to other men. I have never told anyone, but I have prayed about it thousands of times, and I believe that the Lord has helped me not to act upon it. However, I recently met a boy whom I just feel different about. He has flirted a bit with me, and although I have tried treating him as a normal friend, I just can't help having these feelings about him.
I am really scared I will act upon them because the feelings are so strong, and sometimes seem more important to me than the word of God.
I am currently 16 years old and I am already struggling. How can I stick to the word of God for the rest of my life?
