Dear Jessica, I echo John UK comment. So sorry that you had to read such a flippant and cavalier remark. Many on here are praying for you. Please remember Lord, she whom thou lovest is sick. Blessings to you dear sister.

To these I say, Be not deceived, God is not mocked." Nice to know you're perfect and never sin. Ah but.if you did, well, you lose your salavation. Bummer all hope is lost. 1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
I know of no other doctrines more conducive to a joyful,reverent humble and thankful response of worship from us than the doctrines of the grace of God. To God Be The Glory!
Hi Angela, Most of us who post regularly on SA, have been the target of SteveR hateful and venomous anathemas. He seems to become particularly riled when the Roman Catholic religion is discussed. We share the same sentiments concerning Frank.

Frank, s c, I refute anything that anyone writes concerning the religion of Rome as being Christian. Since it mainly is John Yurich that is why I continue to post to warn others of this leaven that he continually permeates this site with. I thank-you both for your faithfulness in these matters. Personally Frank I concur...he certainly has troll like characteristics. He is not interested in engaging, just wants to post rubbish.
get real wrote: God is not mocked ... and while im circling the drain, i actually take time to rethink and i remember where i was and what i was doing ... God is not mocked mod alpha ... someone in your family or circle will fall to temptation ... i wonder how lady virtue is doing? probably not well ... God is not mocked ...
See you are back to your oft rhetorical smokescreen of ad hominem attacks on posters to vent your rants against your own frustrations.
The papacy or Romanism is a religion founded by men, of which their leader is called a pope. Some claim because it mentions the name of Jesus Christ and pretends to worship Him that it is Christian. The RC god they call 'Jesus' is a flour god that they pretend to sacrifice on an altar every day for sin. Anyone who truly has the Spirit of Christ and was reading the Bible would flee from such a monstrosity..... PTL, many have!!

AIG won't accept them any more and I had recently tried to cash a check at a bank (the person who gave it to me has a huge account there;this was just for $75). Even though I had my driver's license,car insurance card,social security card and a recent electric bill,they would not cash it because I don't have my name on a major credit card. Creepy.
s c, In my neck of the woods, if you don't have a major credit card or a debit card plus a picture ID they will not cash your check, even if you have an account with them.
Dolores wrote: Btw, Dorcas you have encouraged me by your post and I did get the devotional you mentioned to me, "The Believer's Daily Remembrancer" by James Smith which has been really helpful and encouraging also. Had to order it from Amazon.com actually I hardly ever Iind what I want in Christian bookstores.
Good morning Dolores, Thank-you for receiving what I posted to you. I have been down that road of anger and bitterness many times and I know from experience that it is a dead-end,dark lonely place that robs us of our joy in the Lord and our testimony and fellowship with each other. Will also remember your husband and grandson in my prayers. So glad you are being blessed by the devotional, it is my favourite alongside Mr. Spurgeon's, Morning and Evening. Have a blessed Lords Day.
Dolores, I would encourage you to please take this matter before the Lord in prayer. It is His command to us that we be a forgiving people, and that we need to guard carefully against an unforgiving spirit. You mentioned that you feel anger...please do not let it take root, it can become a kind of security blanket to which we cling...I know about this all to well,and am constantly praying to the Lord for strength to turn the other cheek and to not get in the flesh. Maybe we all should just go into a 'time-out' for awhile. Will remember you in prayer.
Penny, If you see encouraging others on here 'as taking of sides ' I am confused. Over the years I have read your posts when you have commented to some who are most hateful and demeaning in their comments to others, and have not thought you were 'siding' or 'picking teams'. But I will remember from now on not to include your moniker in my posts as I do not want you to be offended or it be misconstrued .
