Like I said I'm no theological historian like you on any board whatsoever like you, not trying to trash people like you , showing how Christian and full of head knowledge I have because unlike you I am nothing. Not smart, not successful , not the super christian scholar you've made me out to be. I can't live up to your expectations as to what a Christian should be . Unlike you , you're greatness , I'm a wretch who God should have slaughtered because of my vileness but He had mercy on me . So unlike you I try to do the same . I didn't realize an honest comment would ruffle some feathers of the super spiritual Pharisees . It's people like you that cause the lost to stay away from churches. Instead of insulting people here's a new concept for you to try ... Having mercy and loving others as you would like. To be done to you. I will pray for you.

Nameless. Your assumption being that we are all childish? Thanks "Christian". Your next assumption being that we don't pray? Thanks "Christian".
Your whole post is judgmental which is an interesting opinion to be made behind the brick wall of computer obscurity. But then you are perfect and the rest of us as you know are .......!!!
I guess you have already diagnosed that your judgmentalism stems from the me.. me.. me.. attitude which you describe.
Discussion on the board may come from 2, 3, 4, or 50 different positions that does not mean they are not Christian by anybodies standards - it simply means that God provided us with different experiences and thus views in HIS providence. Even Christians the world over do not all totally agree with you. Now that is surprising eh?
Mat 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Fascinating material What was so amazing about this was that this was a secular source, with evolution and crass-humor, and yet the message was clear: porn rewires the brain and science proves this.

This Holy Bible is sufficient for all matters of faith and practice and every word is pure. If he wanted to be known as Yahweh, Y'shua et al, he would have included this in his word. Instead, he says his name is Jehovah or Jesus among other precious names. Further, when Moses broke the tablets the Israelites were not instructed to try to piece together those broken bits to figure out what God said. Instead, they were to read and believe from what God recreated and preserved. Finally, this Yahweh business is from Pagan Babylon and is a construct of Kabbalists. As I consider Kabbalists to be witches, I do not follow them, nor their doctrines. If you're game, I would pose the same question I posed to my friend TheWayPA. If I tell you a name of God is Jehovah, I can tell you what foundation I base that on and precisely where you can turn to. If you say his name is Yahweh what source would you cite for this? What book may I put in my hands that declares this?...
Remarkably deficient reasoning, but on par with most KJV-onlyists!
Anyone who studies early Christianity knows that Christmas is simply a Christianized Version of the Roman holy day called saturnialia. It was made easier for Roman Christians to celebrate by changing the pagan names to Christian ones. The latain church did this with many things. Yes folks Christmas is certainly not Christ's birthday.
was just talking to my husband as we were leaving a funeral today. My soul is so grieved because even though Jesus has defeated sin and death...we still experience it. I know that the saints that go before us will be with our king. But when I was singing "death where is your sting" tears rolled down my face because I and many individuals I love were feeling its sting. At that point I guess I was joining the saints in asking how long lord until you come and defeat death in every way.
Just finished reading the blog entry of revelation and as I came to Rev 19-22 I burst into hope filled tears. Turns out Revelation is not gloom and doom and filled with fear. Instead tonight I found HOPE and Peace in the plan and the word of the Lord. He will rescue his bride and death and sin can NEVER touch her again. AMEN!!!
