  1. If you are a Christian and are fooling around with sex at all, you are drinking poison. You are slitting your wrists. You are burning yourself with gasoline. STOP!!!! REPENT!!!! What God has for you is FAR BETTER than sex! You are settling for a lollypop that fell in dog doo when you could be dining at a fine banquet. If you don't have Holyness then you will not understand the Lord. Holyness is a prerequisite. You simply CAN NOT move on spiritually without it.

  2. I have been there also. There are a lot of fakes but there are some REAL pastors out there also. I dont judge Christ by the church. He told us it would get like this. Hang on to Jesus because He is the one who cares about us really. He is the good shepherd. Check out Ezekiel 34 "The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel; prophesy, and say to them, even to the shepherds, Thus says the Lord God: Ah, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fat ones, but you do not feed the sheep. The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the injured you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought, and with force and harshness you have ruled them. So they were scattered, because there was no shepherd, and they became food for all the wild beasts. My sheep were scattered; they wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill. My sheep were scattered over all the face of the earth, with none to search or seek for them. “Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: As I live, declares the Lord God, surely because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd, and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep, therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the Lord: Thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am against the shepherds, and I will require my sheep at their hand and put a stop to their feeding the sheep. No longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them."

  3. Yes that is coming when Putin has finished with Ukraine and other places, with possibly Germany in tow.

  4. Russia is already there. A thief in the night. Every one is asleep.

  5. This is allegory. There is no reason to concern yourself about it. The bible s full of allegory.

  6. I am not worried. I know Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is my guardian. Its going to come like a theif in the night. Are you ready?

  7. There are many atheists and homosexuals that like to spy on Christians and get them all turned around and worked up. There are a few Christians on Reddit but not many actual Bible-believing Christ-following Christians.

  8. Start by reading the Gospel of John and having daily prayer. Form a relationship to God before looking for other Christians. Then God Himself will guide you to where a good place to worship might be.

  9. Jesus knew some folks like the FBI agent says he knew. Jesus said of them, and its still true today.. "You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies."

  10. Its because things are actually the other way around. Political parties that oppress the poor and favor big business are the ones that are also the ones to lie to Christians and trick them into giving them votes. The same politicians are likely the ones that create gossip about their opponents on social media and and with Qanon. Don't be mistaken though the opposite party lies to get votes also. Now Gods way of changing the world is not through politics but changed hearts through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We don't belong in riots and protests. We should be about preaching the gospel, Worshiping, Praying and helping the poor directly.

  11. Maybe you missed the part that said “first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

  12. In the right context. Is this person applying to be a pastor or just wants to be a part of the congregation?

  13. Many Christians think love is doing their best to drive people to suicide. I’m not sure I want Christian love

  14. How should forensic science be used to determine crime? Should Qanon or any social media driven communication be used as a reliable source of evidence to convict?

  15. As an Evangelical, I have lots of Charismatic friends. These prophecies of Christ are a huge elephant in the room, for them. The plain reading describes Charismatics.

  16. Charismatic is a broad term and means different things to different people. I have the Holy Spirit but I can tell a false sign from a real one. I do not speak in tongues in public and I pray in secret. I sing at church and only go where the Bible is being taught. Sometimes that means not going to a charismatic church. Read 1 Corinthians 13 Paul deals with this subject. I believe that the greatest sign of the Holy Spirit is in Galatians 5 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control"

  17. The Charismatic movement is the obvious possibility.

  18. This is Trump’s Pastor. It absolutely has EVERYTHING to do with politicians.

  19. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Matthew 7:2

  20. 1 Corinthians 5:12 "For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?"

  21. Its got to be soon. Israel has been back for over 70 years and we are in Over Time!

  22. Right. Here's a website I made to address the many biblical indicators we're getting close..

  23. Politics is NOT Gods answer to the worlds problems. Jesus Christ is. If someone who is a politician is a Christian they should use their position for good but no one should expect to legislate righteousness. It wont happen. You may get a bill passed today but by the time the next generation comes along they will have completely forgotten what was done. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to change hearts one at a time. Trump is very dangerous. If the church is not careful they may and up electing the Anti-Christ one day or may be even just another Hitler. I am not saying don't vote. I am saying be careful of who you vote for. Trump is clearly dangerous. He would have become a dictator if January 6 had gone different. We are not out of the woods with him yet. Pray for the church in the United States to repent.

  24. This is very true. Evangelical denominations like mine are going through a strange phase. Some congregations are explicitly subscribing to the Trump ideology while others remain apolitical and a few anti-Trump. Even in congregations that are apolitical, there are a lot of conspiracist elements. In the group chat of my parent’s fellowship and Bible study group, someone sent conspiracy-laden pro-Trump content there. The worst people are the people who pretend to hide their evil deeds, and they can be found attending church.

  25. My biggest concern with the theory is that it ignores the sin problem. Evolution and Christianity coexisting requires a perfect world before sin entered it to still have death and pain and disease and so forth. From what I've seen/been taught the theory also seems to be based heavily on circular reasoning and self contradiction--- but I'm by no means an expert; that's just my impression.

  26. If God didn't create death than His creation would ultimately be filled beyond capacity. Unless of course He didn't create reproduction either. Death is good but the death that God refers to in Genesis is spiritual death or separation from God. Otherwise He is a liar because He told Adam "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” Genesis 2:17 Adam did NOT die physically that day because the death that God spoke of was spiritual. Physical death for some one who knows God is actually glorification. We become like the Angels in heaven and have eternal abundant joyful life. Matthew 22 But Jesus answered them, “You are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God. For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven. And as for the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what was said to you by God: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? He is not God of the dead, but of the living.”

  27. I just prayed for you. Did you know that the Holy Spirit is called "The Comforter" ? 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." John 14:26
