If there are no fruits to observe -- then there's been no salvation.

  • Reply to Religious Researcher Claims Rapture Begins on Saturday
    by Sue D.
    We joke about such predictions being made -- but Jesus Christ Will return at Some point in the future. If I'm remembering what I read correctly -- the article says that the rapture will Begin to take place at that specified time. According to Scripture it takes place in an instant. Everyone will be aware of Something taking place and it will be over. It's not like people will have time realize that '"hey, it's actually taking place, I'll take this moment to repent and accept Him and I'll be fine"

    In my lifetime I've not been aware of any predictions except those in the past that didn't take place. So "this" coming prediction is new for me. Anticipating a future event that Scripture tells us Will happen --and someone says it will happen at a specific day - very soon. And, yes, the scoffers will be coming 'out of the woodwork' saying "we Told you so, when will you guys ever learn that it Won't happen, Period" that's from another forum I'm...

    by MennoSota
    Again, you are wondering off the central question.

    Is Jesus God?

    If yes, then you must consider his words and requirements. If no, then you do whatever your body desires. The only thing that matters is your personal pleasure in the moment. Narcissism at its finest.

    That's for you to wrestle with. I know whom I believe in and that he is able to keep me unto eternity. I am at peace and therefore I can fully enjoy this life while looking forward to eternity with my Creator.
    He has reconciled me to himself. It is great. He chose to do this out of love, by His grace.
    I pray that one day you can say the same.

    Sort of. The Pyramid Texts (Egyptian) dates to 2800-2200 BC, Eridu Genesis (Sumerian) dates to 1600 BC and the Rigveda (Hindu) dates to 1500 - 1100 BC, while Genesis dates to 1445-1400 BC. So there are some older and some about the same age.

    The point is this so called 'copy' of earlier creation myths gets all of the details wrong in exactly such a way to suddenly proclaim that all other stories are false and there is only one, eternal, uncreated God who created everything from nothing ... exactly the opposite of all of the other 'ancient' polytheistic stories of created gods (plural) who formed everything from something that pre-existed. [Not bad for 3462 years ago.]

    This isn't that hard.
    If I find a watch, there are three possibilities:
    1. The watch always existed.
    2. The watch just formed by random chance.
    3. Someone created the watch.

    The world exists. Life exists. People exist. Sentience exists. Same three possibilities....

    You seem to have a certan Biblical direction in your thinking. However, that does not mean othere might well have a different understanding of not only Biblical understanding, but how the Military is.

    Perhaps you might tone town your choice of words, as the way you present your message in not a way I would perfer to continue dialogue with your posts.

    Now if President Obama was not the worst wicked evil President in history than I must have missed something in my 72 years on this planet. Mrs. Clinton is no doubt is perhaps just as bad, but she was not elected nor will she ever be especially after her book came out.

  • The incontestable miracle at Fatima
    by Eddie
    Just curious what people's thoughts are on the miracle at Fatima in 1917? A quick summary of the facts:
    • 3 young children claimed a "lady from heaven" appeared out of nowhere in a remote field in Portugal where they were watching their animals, and the lady gave them a Catholic related message to relay to the people where they lived. This lady also told the children to meet her in this same location on the 13th of the month for the next 5 months at the same time where she would tell them more. Of course no one believed the children when they returned home with this news, and it caused a massive stir in their town.
    • The 3 children returned the following month, and many curious people came along with them. The children again claimed to see and speak with this "lady from heaven", but other bystanders could not see her. Since no one would believe the children, the lady told the children in July that she would perform a miracle on her last visit (Oct 13, 1917) so as "to

  • What happens when the believer dies?
    by AndThisGospel
    On another thread I asked the following question: "Why were those from Adam to Moses dying? Were they dying because the law condemned them to death? No, the law had yet to been posted by God on Mount Sinai. Therefore "sin is not imputed when there is no law" (Rom 5:13). Then why were they dying?

    Answer: Because all men share Adam's fallen life indwelt with sin and therefore stand disqualified for heaven and eternal life.

    This leads to another question: If there's nothing good in our flesh then why do some Christians teach that something goes to heaven upon the death of the believer?

    Let's look at Acts 2:29 “Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. ...34 For David did not ascend into the heavens.

    David was a man of God. He was a believer, yet we clearly see from Scripture that he did not enter heaven upon his death. Why?...

  • Why do protestants have a beef with Mary?
    by Truthseeker
    I never really understood protestants hostility towards Marian doctrines. There is not a single Marian doctrine that does not center and hinge on Jesus Himself. They are all Christocentric. To downplay her role and status is a direct effrontery to Jesus Himself. I don't go to Mary unless it was Jesus whom I was trying to get to ultimately. She is as much of a help, as Abraham helped, Noah, Moses, the prophets were in bringing souls back to God. Mary does not save souls, God does but God has deigned to make Mary someone whom we can come to for help. The power with which she can intercede for us comes from Christ Himself. She does nothing on her own. Her own sinless life has given her the privilege to be very close to God. Our veneration and prayers do not amount to deifying her.

    If Jesus was whom all we ever needed then why did God use so many outstanding people in salvation history to get his message across? Why do through the incarnation? Why bother using Mary's body and...

  • Why do most modern Christians only follow 9 of the 10 commandments? [Sabbath Day]
    by Trist
    I was told that I was required to work today and I called in and said that I would not work because I guard the 10 commandments. I live in an "at will" state and have a high probability of being fired for doing this, but I believe that I have done the right thing at this time. If I have not done the right thing, why is this so and where can it be found in scripture? My interpretation of what Jesus spoke against was not the law of Moses, but against the ridiculous additions that were made to it by the scribes and Pharisees. I also know that the Sabbath day (or seventh day) was created before the law of Moses.

    The Sabbath day appears to be a gift from the most high to mankind for rest and for learning about God (Jesus taught in the tabernacle on the Sabbath day routinely, and this is why I want to learn about the Sabbath day now), and it feels wrong to deny a gift from God.
