    Welcome. What is there really to back up any of the writings of other religions? Not much, take budisim for example, it's all personal revelation that's just supposed to be belived, even though reality is not really real, so whatever information they offer is an illusion. Yet the Christian Bible is backed by it's fulfilled prophecies, historic facts, scientific facts, the Bible bible is a book of facts. Out of all other religions, Christianity only has a creator who is personal and it's not about human ahviement, there's no earning your way in Christianity, God is perfectly Holy, there's no way we can possibly work off our sins by God deeds. To answer the question why you should become a Christian. Because Christ is the only way to be cleansed of your sins and to enter Heaven.

    Is water Baptizm necessay for salvation?

    Only Paul could preach the Gospel? But he didn't think it important enough to baptised? And what was the point of Paul addressing the issue of him baptizing would still be problematic? Like I already said, apparel is not any and all clothing. That would be like the verse is saying not to focus on outward beauty but still wear gold, plait your hair, and wear fancy clothes. The word "eis" doesn't have only one meaning though. Romans 4:99 Is this blessing then only for the circumcised, or also for the uncircumcised? For we say that faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness. 10How then was it counted to him? Was it before or after he had been circumcised? It was not after, but before he was circumcised. 11He received the sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness that he had by faith while he was still uncircumcised. The purpose was to make him the father of all who believe without being circumcised, so that righteousness would be counted to them as well I'm wondering how grace is still grace even if its a dept for works. Paul is drawing a parallel between the old and new covenants, where both are justifed by faith alone. Ephesians 2:10 we are saved unto good works, not by good works.

    Is water Baptizm necessay for salvation?

    So why is emphasis put on the preaching of the Gospel over baptism? 1Corinthians 1:12-13 doesn't prove the necessity of baptism, show me a verse that says you can't be part of Christ without baptism. In 1Peter 3:3-4, apparel and adonoring is not clothing of any and every kind. You're applying one definition of eis into the verse regardless of biblical consistency, as if there were only one definition of the word. And I would like to know how salvation is both by works and by grace apart from works at the same time.

    Is water Baptizm necessay for salvation?

    1Corinthians 1:17 17For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel, and not with words of eloquent wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. It would seem that baptism is not what save. Acts 2:38-39 38Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39This promise belongs to you and to your children and to all who are far off, to all whom the Lord our God will call to Himself Baptized for the forgiveness of sins is best understood as baptized because of. And all are not called by God, nor is every person who has been baptised truly converted. Ephesians 2:1-10 1And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the bodya and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.b 4Butc God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, 5even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— 6and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,7so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Baptism is what you do when you're saved, not what saved you. If we had to be baptized to be saved then we couldn't since we would be following after the sinful nature as described in verses 1-3. And we would have a serious contradiction if we're saved by baptism while salvstion is by grace through faith, and not of works.

    Do I have to wear a shirt?

    @Just Mike @Becky There's almost nothing available for women to ware. There are a few small clothing lines that make modest swim wear, but you would probably have to search all over the internet to find them to make an order and it's probably expensive.

    Was there ever intelligent life on Mars?

    I don't know about the canals and all that. But it would seem to me that earth is the only planet where God created life, and Scriputure only tells us that God put life on earth. I don't see why there could have been life on mars since there isn't any now, unless something changed the conditions on mars causing the extinction of life there.

    Education

    Sadly I didn't have much discipline as a child, buts that's another story. I grew up and went to school in Florida up till the 6th grade, they didn't use corporal punishment there, but I moved to Mississippi where they used paddling, I didn't know there was such a thing unroll then. Mississippi is a little old fashioned. I thinks it's mostly in the southern states where they still use corporal punishment. One time I've heard of a school that used a bamboo cane in Tennessee I think. Schools have more than they can handle with misbehavior and sadly parents are basically sending thier kids to be raised by the secular, godless school system.

    Schools are deffinitly not immune to perverts. There was a coach in my school who used to swat the girls on the butt when they walked by, a few years later it turned out that he was having a sexual relationship with one of them.

    Is Prosperity For The Present Church?

    Of course they were material things, food, drink, and clothing are all material things, and I'd go as far to say that they sent Paul money as well, but I don't think this verse is telling us that the Philippians made Paul rich. They were helping him with his affliction, they were sending him aid.

    Is Prosperity For The Present Church?

    The way that Paul is abounding is decided by the contex.
  12. So I'm a little slow sometimes when it comes to computer things. I just found out that I can copy and paste verses instead of typing them out. I've yet to figure out how though, from what I could gather so far I have to download an app or something. Any info would be much appreciated. Stay strong in Christ and be blessed.

    On one hand corporal punishment does some good, but teachers do abuse their authority. For younger children it makes more sense, but with high school kids it's not that big of a deal. When I was in high school the punishment for regular bad behaviour was paddling or Saturday school, which is just 3 hours of detention on a Saturday, or suspension. If I got in trouble I would beg to be paddled, I didn't want to give up my Saturday. And this one teacher really had it out for me, any reason she could find to paddle me she would, thankfully she was kinda scrawny and couldn't swing that hard.

    Is Prosperity For The Present Church?

    The church in Philippi helped Paul with his needs, not riches, he had all his needs met. Philippians 4:10-12 But I rejoyed in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect to want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to unbound: every where and in all things things I am instructed both to abound and to suffer need. Prosperity is not the definite outcome of giving. God certainly supplies our needs, but worldly things are not a reward for giving.

    Prayer Requests for Chris B and Family

    God has every right to do with us as He pleases. Not only does he put us into a broken world where we will inevitably sin, but He even chooses who will have salvation before the world was formed. Read Romans 9. Like I already said, but you ignored, you can't even beg for forgiveness without God enabling you to do so. See Romans 3:10-11, 1Corinthians 2:14, Genisis 3:6, John 3:19, and John 8:34. What if you put me into such an environment? You're not God! Instead of nit picking because I called people clowns, would you try to understand the point I'm making. The point is that you should take people like that with a grain of salt, their options are meaningless, because they are clowns. Jesus and the apostiles also insulted people because it's not always wrong to. Believers are the body of Christ, not every person alive. And was my description of them wrong? Are they not clowns? The girl in the library is a totally different situation then what you first described. No one said you can't ask God questions. How hard your life has been is irrelevant to who God is and where your place is as a man. It's is backwards and absurd for the created thing to think that he can judge God who is the authority of right and wrong, He is the judge.
