Hebrews 6:4-6; Jeremiah 31:19: It is because of our humiliation that makes us think twice about repenting. But with great suffering comes repetence from the heart. God is forever graceful, forever willing to forgive (Nehemiah 9:28; Nehemiah 9:31). This builds us up; this brings us closer to God. Qui...

[1]First of all, thank you all for your prayers. I appreciate it. [2]I feel like I've lost the way to the Lord because I have been praying a lot less; I feel no interest to read scriptures; I've been finding myself saying the Lord's name in vain; I've been struggling with pornography (which I'm mos...

May i ask, what are your doubts? And what is this fleshly stubbornness you're going through?

If you are willing and comfortable, and want the Lord to fill that emptiness inside you, i would like to ask, what is it that has been making you feel that you have lost the way, or are losing the way to the Lord?

Then what does Ecclesiastes 3:21 mean?
Ecclesiastes 3:21
Who knows if the human spirit rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?"
To me, this implies that animals have spirits.

Ah, i just saw about 30 minutes of the video before stopping. You could tell it is an atheistic video from the very beginning. They even stated stuff about the theory of evolution as if it were a fact. They're debunking religion left and right--but most of all, Christianity.

Re: puritan lad

If our "free will" allows us to choose sin, does our free will allow us to never choose sin? You say that "everyone choose sin--usually cause of temptation". Why? If that is the case, then just how free is our will. We are "slaves to sin", born in iniquity, and conceived in sin. Ah, trying to answe...

Re: Genealogy of Christ

If you had a family with members not relating to you by blood, would you not include them in the family tree? Both parents are married, therefore, i would include them.

Dictionary.com - Genealogy:
a record or account of the ancestry and descent of a person, family, group, etc.
Hope this helps.

Just like Adam and Eve--upon creation--had no sin, so do we--upon creation--have no sin. Thus, that crosses out we are all born with sin . Eve was aware of disobedience before eating of the fruit ( Genesis 3:2-3 ). Therefore, i have to say, "our free will allows us to choose to sin" and everyone cho...

Indeed, only God can forgive sins. James 5:15-16 (emphasis by me) [15] And the prayer offered in faith will make them well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. [16] Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The p...

In Response to Turgonian

Hmmm, i don't know how well that'll work. It doesn't seem like a strong case to me. That, and i'd have to be carrying a KJV Bible along (i like my TNIV Bible), since other Bibles translate that verse differently (without the word "repented"), and, last i heard, NIV is still the popular one. I see no...

Open Theism

Here are a couple of verses that (would) imply Open Theism. Genesis 6:6 (TNIV) The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 1 Samuel 15:10-11 (TNIV) [10] Then the word of the LORD came to Samuel: [11] "I regret that I have made Saul king, because ...

Earth Center of Universe...

Ok, i've tried searching for a topic about this, but after a few pages, i got lazy. :P I keep seeing others, even believers (or at least so-called) stating, "The Bible says that, the earth is the center of the universe." I'm pretty sure the Bible does not speak of such a thing, and i also have some ...
