Thanks for this encouragement, Dave. We are one body edifying each other by the means God himself provides.
"For as the body is one, and has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ." I Co 12:12
A very humbling chapter full of edifying focus, bringing Christ in all and for all, in each one belonging to him.
May you be strengthened throughout your trials, and may He use you along the way for the good of others in the measure of your given gifts.

Got an evil in mind that isn't rooted in covetousness?

False accusations and coarse jesting should be addressed.On the positive side,at least,they do serve the purpose of revealing those who engage in such. It allows for fruit inspection. A Christian forum will be much like a Christian church-there will be Christians and professing Christians on/in it and we don't need to "put on a good front" for anyone else.People respect honesty.The Holy Spirit works through it all. I know of a time in my life when I was turned off by phony televangelists/charismatics as a non-believer. When I came across the real deal then (a true Christian) ,though,I saw a clear distinction so hearing/experiencing the professing stuff served a purpose. The fake is more apparent when set against the genuine.
Cont- 1st century church. I don't believe in the health and wealth name it and claim it gospel. Now if anyone wishes to label me a Calvinist due to my views so be it. I'm not directing this at anyone, just stating my position. God bless to all
Gday mates :-) From what I'm told Bart Simpson knows all about Aussie, apparently the Simpson's( sorry I've never been a fan of the show) had an Aussie on his show recently named Wodonga, lol that's the city I live in, I'm still suspicious that Christopher has contact with Bart Simpson and they are taking the mickey out of me lol.
Now this is my view on salvation . Grace through faith alone. Preselection ,predestination and election. Ones salvation becomes evident through the fruits of the spirit, goodworks are a natural desire after God's heart after we Believe and repent, faith alonesaves not works. We can do nothing regarding our salvation,God chooses and draws us not vice versa. I believe in the father,son and holy Spirit. I despise false worship and false prophecy,if any of its read from the bible we're in affect declaring prophecies, if we distort,add our subtract from the bible we then become false prophets,bearing in mind I don't believe we today are even remotely of the calibre of the Jewish prophets God has SPOKEN to in times past,for now he speaks to us through a more sure word,Jesus and that word has been preserved in the bible.I don't believe in talking in tongues as there's no need now Apostolic authority has been proved and used to establish the 1st cent
Yes,Jim- RCs call themselves "Christian" which confuses the issue. Of course,sadly,a lot of professing Christians,particularly,the ecumenical and many charismatic ones would call the RCC "Christian" as well. It's no wonder that Whoopi would be ignorant too. Penn "...Deep down she has to know that its not true." The heart is deceitfully wicked. She probably actually believes the rhetoric and prides herself in it. Of course,we pray that her spiritual eyes would be opened.
I've also noticed that people can be evasive when unable to address valid questions by making statements like "...Too many tiny boxes of tradition created as litmus tests." RC "holidays" can't be backed by Scripture. It's one thing to be ignorant or naive on a subject and it's quite another to support something with a verse which,when put in context,only confirms that Christians should avoid those things which were a shadow- Colossians 2:16-17 16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an Holy day, or of the New moon, or of the Sabbath days: 17Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ. The holy day,new moons,sabbath -WHICH ARE A SHADOW What's worse than a Christian observing the Jewish feasts which were a shadow is a Christian observing a pagan day and dragging Christ into it?
(Galatians) 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage? 10Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. 11I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain.
Why do Christians observe days/times? And,Dolores,if you make a statement,you should be able to support it (i.e. answer Ladybug)
There seem to have been some discussion on another thread that the cross was a pagan symbol. As I said it looks like it was intertwined on this SA article. Judaism came historically before Christianity. Christianity and Judaism are intertwined, Christianity is the completion of Judaism.
I really can't point it out often enough (can I? ) that no Jew can be saved from the time of Jesus to even now, except as described in, Acts 13:15-42 By the way, the same verses describe quite well the special relation that Jews have had with God. After the Church age God will again take up his work with them, and I most definitely mean the Triune God.
So, no, the Star of David, was a Christian symbol as well, I can't help what Kabbalah "Jews" do or had done with the Star of David any more than I can help with what the Catholic "Christian" does or has done with the cross.

Warm Christian greetings GS, I have been enjoying reading your posts since you came back on the forum. No I do not post much anymore on here...to much nattering and slander, which I want no part of, or is it glorifying to the Lord. ---- I wish you and yours every blessing.
