    You really have to wonder what these people are thinking?

    positive news focus on how many didn't die, it's all about if the glass was half empty or half full.

    ok - you have a good point and i have no response for that - that is pretty clear in scripture so i will have to accept that - thank you for that excellent point God Bless you my friend

    i agree with a messenger from satan tormented paul - but the scripture says paul asked 3 times that God would lift this off him and 3 times God said my grace ability power is sufficient for you - what is this grace ability power? - it is God's power - imo the same power Jesus used to heal the sick raise the deal etc - so this indicates to me that when paul started rejoicing that when he was weak then he was strengthened - he meant God's power is what he used as per Philippians 4:19 - Mark 11:22-24 - the power of God is activated by us using God's words and seeing things change i don't see paul ever saying he accepted sickness or that we should accept sickness - neither did Jesus or God tell us to accept sickness - in fact Deuteronomy 28:1-68 and Joshua 1: 8 and Isaiah 53:3-6 and 1 Peter 2:24 says the opposite rather we see paul and all the others also healing the sick and raising the dead - just as Jesus did

    I'm not sure what exactly you mean by, "in Jesus name" but Jim Jones came in came Jesus name, and I don't see why a false miracle workers couldn't say "in Jesus name" In Matthew 7:22-23 we see some who claim to have prophesied, cast out demons, and do many great works in Jesus name, but Jesus says he never knew them. This is video of Jim Jones healing. You can tell by who is preforming the miracles, what they are teaching and thier fruits (Galatians 5:19-24)are they godly or worldly?Or what kind of teaching is tied in with the miracles.
  6. And Foxnews is doing really good while CNN is hitting bottom. So people are tuning in to something more positive and that too helps Trump’s numbers.

    judas carried the purse so Jesus wasn't poor - John 12:6 - scripture doesn't say one way or the other but imo for the 3.5 years Jesus was travelling from town to town and preaching the gospel He slept out in the open at night as did all travellers - BUT when in a village someone invited Him into their home as per nicodemus - martha/mary/lazarus - and the jewish custom to not leave anyone out in the street at night - before that Jesus was a carpenter and had a home with His family and income from His carpentry work - there is no scripture that says Jesus was in poverty or poor - and there is no scripture that say He and the disciples were without food - fasting for 40 days was the only time the bible says Jesus was hungry - in fact the pharisees called Jesus a glutton and winebibber so He and his crew were obviously eating and drinking - and the pharisees complained the disciples never fasted - all of this together indicates they had food - Luke 8:3 makes it sound like Jesus had supporters thus the need for the purse judas was stealing from - and if they were poor there would not be enough money in the purse for judas to get away with it - any stealing would have created a ruckus if they were poor Jesus asked his disciples if they EVER lacked ANYTHING when He sent them out without money bag and they said no - Luke 22:35 - so this indicates to me when they were with Jesus the money bag was used to make sure they lacked nothing this is how i would interpret scripture to say Jesus was not poor hungry sick sinning - and God does not want us poor sick hungry sinning if there is a scripture that say God wants us poor sick hungry sinning then i will have to accept that

    Is it really supposed to be considered bad journalism that more news coverage goes to a mass shooting than one or two shootings that are prevented? Both should be reported but without question the mass shooting is going to get more coverage.
  9. This is the way the Spirit always led me, In 1 Cor. it tells us to not partake of this lightly as if were an ordinary meal. I think the part about being careful not to damn oneself means to be sure you are not a fake Christian and typically, youngsters not of age shouldn't partake. As far as having uncovered sin, I don't think there is such a state. We are freely given forgiveness as we go about our business.

    Poor: [Mat 8:20 NASB] [Luk 9:58 NASB] Jesus said to him, "The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head." Hungry: [Mat 4:2 NASB] And after He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He then became hungry. Sick: There is nothing recorded one way or another about whether Jesus ever had a cold, but [Heb 2:17-18] "Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted." ... so he might have caught a cold. Sin: Nope. No question on this one. [Heb 4:15 NASB] For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. This is a difficult question. No, I do not believe that God makes anyone sick or poor or hungry or causes them to sin. However God does allow it. 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 NASB 7 Because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, for this reason, to keep me from exalting myself, there was given me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me—to keep me from exalting myself! 8 Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. 9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong. Galatians 4:12-15 NLT 12 Dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to live as I do in freedom from these things, for I have become like you Gentiles—free from those laws. You did not mistreat me when I first preached to you. 13 Surely you remember that I was sick when I first brought you the Good News. 14 But even though my condition tempted you to reject me, you did not despise me or turn me away. No, you took me in and cared for me as though I were an angel from God or even Christ Jesus himself. 15 Where is that joyful and grateful spirit you felt then? I am sure you would have taken out your own eyes and given them to me if it had been possible. Surely Paul understood the Gospel! Yet he pleaded to have the "thorn in the flesh" removed and God refused. Paul was stranded in Galatia by illness and rather than heal him, God used his weakness to spread the Gospel.

    Should we abstain from partaking of the Lord's Supper?

    I don't think anyone here is or has suggested otherwise.......

    yes - good points i heard of jim jones - he was controlling and an isolationist - trying to keep people under his control did jim jones perform miracles of healing or some of the other things i shared i and others experienced? - did he command miracles in Jesus' name as i described? are there other examples of false miracle workers doing everything in Jesus' name? the scriptures you provided talked about miracles satan did - which would not be in Jesus' name - satan is the anti-christ - he would not honor the name of Jesus i have heard of spiritists doing miracles but none of them use the name of Jesus to do their miracles either so how would you tell which miracles are from God or from satan?
  14. As a lifetime member of the NRA, I feel I should let you know that we are not soft on crime. In fact, NRA has consistently fought lawmakers to fully prosecute crimes committed with guns. All to often a hardened felon can trade information so police will not prosecute them for a concealed weapon. In places like NYC that can mean a year in the pen. Let average joe get caught with a gun, they throw the book at him. This shouldn't be.

    Should we abstain from partaking of the Lord's Supper?

    It comes down to a simple question, is all Scriptue, the inerrant, infallible, God breathed word? And should we do the opposite of what Paul is teaching to the Corinthians?

    Bible says communism will ultimately fail

    l didn't plan more than just the mention of fascism, which in the context of what I wrote was a commentary on communism by way of speaking to how they look alike in practice to an untrained person such as myself.

    agreed - scripture is the final and only authority - and when experiences match scripture then what more can any of us ask for? i think you are meaning when your interpretation of a scripture disagrees with my interpretation of scripture so now what do we do? - if i honestly see scripture differently than you who is wrong? is the majority opinion right? how can any of us be sure we are interpreting correctly? for me i ask God to show me AND i surround myself with praying people who care about me - AND i stay in communication with people who disagree with me so that i can hear what they say when people mock and trash others it makes it hard to trust such people's opinion God has never mocked me - He explains things to me people who care about me speak in a kind tone and pray for me when i misunderstand them God bless you my friend - thank you for also being a kind christian - i value that

    I meant it not true that cessationest belive that all miracles and gifts have classes and that we belive all miracles are satanic. Then I was saying atpollard did a good job at explaining cessationism already.

    Does God care more about men then women?

    So either you: 1) believe Christ is not equal to God or 2) you believe Christ was not submissive to God or 3) you rescind your statement
  22. Innerfire89

    Word of faith movement.

    Experiences are not the measure of truth, if the experience doesn't match Scripture, then something wrong is happening. Not all miracles are from God, there are counterfeits. That's not true, brother atpollard did an excellent job explaining cessationism already. Scripture warns us of false miracle workers, they Pull people in to thier false teaching by buying them over with miracles. Have you ever heard of Jim Jones and The People's Temple? Jim Jones did hearng micacles, but he also said he was the messiah and lead 900 of his followers to commit suicide. There have been other false miracle workers too who have lead people to false teachings and death. Not all miracles are real miracles from God. A few verse on false miracles. 2 Thessalonians 2:9 Matthew 24:24.

    Does God care more about men then women?

    What scripture is that? Being away from home i do not have my Bible with me ,as far as on line i have not figured out this tablet. I know the Scriptures say husbands love your wife as Christ loves the church. Todays Christian woman would do well to follow the Word not being so conserend about how the world views relationships. It was not humans who sent their Son to the cross it was God. Would some one please post the Scripture referanced above.

    Did you know: There were two school shootings prevented by armed guards this week. But that barely got any media coverage Instead the focus is on the carnage, and the narrative is now that guns need to be taken away The news manipulates minds to advance a gun control agenda
