Working 2 jobs has killed me socially as I have zero time for anything. It's one of the reasons this is my last week at my second job. I do not do Facebook much as I do not like the crummy interface and platform. I prefer good old fashioned message boards and why I am here. So what would do without this board? Some of you live in remote areas so you cannot be out witnessing like I can so you have nothing to keep you going besides this board. If you are single I bet you are very lonely and...
I was brought up Baptist in which we kids were instructed to pray the Father and end those prayers, "In Jesus precious name, Amen!"
I use to follow NASCAR and would listen into the prayer. The pastor praying would pray, "The Father... In thy Holy Name." If that is not bad enough other people would pray this prayer as well.
I have wrote more emails chastising ministers for omitting the name of Jesus in their prayers. I believe it is a total waste of time to pray a prayer, and to omit the...
I just joined this forum and thought I would jump in with an easy question.
My Bible reading this morning was 1st Corinthians 15. I ran across these versus and have know idea what they mean and thought some of you that are more theologically educated may be able to help.
29 Otherwise, what do people mean by being baptized on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized on their behalf?
This is an issue that makes me do a decent amount of thinking.
How do you know if you've just been backsliding vs. having never been saved in the first place?
I wonder for personal reasons. Due to my mental illness, I periodically enter mood states (both "up" and "down") that can last for several weeks or more. During some of these extended periods, I occasionally become more religious and end up with a better devotional life. More frequently, though, I end up either having some sort of...
In episode 3. We made only a little progress.
We saw that God uses figures of speech,metaphors,hyperbolic statements, but we did not get to the interpretation itself. What do these figures and metaphors actually teach?
When do these events take place?
If you can back up your post with scripture.....post it....if you cannot, feel free to read but we do not care about random thoughts,tweets, and opinions unless given scriptural support.

15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that...
The Law of Moses has not been abolished, because heaven and earth has not yet passed away, hence "unit heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or tittle will pass away from the Law..." and "whoever sets aside the least of the commands, will be called least...". Even Paul says, "we do not nullify the Law by this faith, but we uphold the Law". Lets discuss.
The Catholic Church is not entirely false as there are scriptural doctrines and scriptural parts of the Mass. And the Catholic Church does indeed worship the biblical and historical Jesus as God. Some Evangelical Protestants state falsely that the Catholic Church does not worship the biblical and historical Jesus as God.
Reformed Baptist stated in another thread (post # 8) " there are churches with memberships in that massively out number their regular attendance - that isn't right, that is a schism in the body (all those in nonattandence should be removed from the membership).
So lets talk about that - How long should pass before a church dismisses a member - or should they be put on an inactive list.
How about a military member who does a three year tour of duty overseas - what status should he be....
The charge has been made here that the Latin Rite of Christianity is somehow part and parcel of paganism. Why single out the Catholic faith tradition out when all of Christianity could also be seen as likewise guilty of the same charge?
Where did it start? Let us go back 3500 years where the "god" Mitra is found in the Indian Vedic religion. Fast forward 1500 years to 1500 BCE where Mitra made it to the Near East (Assyria). This "Mitra" then evolved into "Mithra", the Persian derivative,...
