Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

To be quite honest, you are the only bad thing about this place, but because of you I'm just about getting sick of being here. But I've found a much better place, it's CSLewislover's and Gabrielman's message board where they at least don't allow legalistic types like youself to troll, spam, and hija...

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

Well not only am I not comfortable doing street witnessing but I don't feel LED TO. I've even asked God about it and even then I still don't feel led to. So if I don't feel led, don't feel comfortable and don't have the talent to do it chances are I shouldn't do it, especially if I don't feel called...

Re: "No 'Creator' Needed for Life to Appear in the Universe"

I sent a question about this to RTB. I'll let you know if I hear back from them or if they decide to include this on a podcast.

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

Thank you again Bart, again I fully agree with everything you say. Also, I don't mind sharing the gospel and my Christian views publicly with someone who is reasonably kind and civil and who wants to engage in a civil and thoughtful conversation. The only problem is right now and for the past couple...

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

No you are wrong. Basically this is what I want to do and Bart was agreeing with me and I had it listed on my origional post. And that is I want to serve God and help the great commission, I just want to find my niche or the area that I feel comfortable and skilled in. And the areas that I feel comf...

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

Again, I don't feel led to witness to people or to serve God in any SOCIAL setting or in any setting that involves literally being around and talking with other people. I only feel led to pray, study, donate money or serve in some behind the scenes way. And I've asked God specifically about this tim...

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

If I go out and cold witness to people they will pull out a gun and blow my head off! People are in no mood in this day and age to hear the gospel. They hate God and everything that has to do with Him.They are nothing but seeds of satan pure and simple. There is nothing I, you, nor anyone else can d...

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

Well quite honestly I feel like I don't have the gift to be involved in prison ministry. I've seen prison ministries on television and have heard about them on the radio, Internet and elsewhere. From what I've seen the people who speak to prisoners are part of one or more of three categories. They e...

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

Great point zeogirl, I hope that really is the case, becuase personally I don't feel like I'm cut out to be someone who can effectively cold witness. I'm not a very social person. At least when it comes to offline. I won't even talk to people about weather nonetheless about God or politics (and the ...

Re: Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

Very excellent stuff Bart, it does make me feel better knowing that I don't HAVE to go up to total (and extremely hostile) strangers and "cold witness" to them (cold witnessing being defined as you walk up to the meanest most sinful looking stranger you can find and the first words you shout (not sa...

Witnessing, serving God,and uncivil hateful people..

Hey guys, I'm really having problems on how to serve God especially with the economy and even more so, with the way most unbelievers as well as people in general are currently. It's been this way ever since I've been alive and has gotten worse in the last few years, people not only don't want to lis...

Re: Middle east tensions, Israel, end times, and God's exist

Let's see even though many of you have not directly answered my question, I"m getting the impression that if Israel ceased to exist a second time (I guess it would be the second time) you all WOULD give up your faith in Christianity and the God of the Bible. Is that what I"m getting? Personally with...
