(NOTE: This is not a group for the bashing, belittling, or debunking of other people's beliefs).
Peace be with you.
Your new order of business now that you are a member of the Grand Army of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Well I watched Heaven Is for Real, it was not really a Christian film at all. Of course... Hollywood.
Discussing the validity of Genesis, and the non-compatibility of the evolution theory with Christianity. A response to 'Evolution and Christianity.'
Discussing the theory of evolution and Christianity and why the two do not conflict.
A story, a moral, a game, and a question no one wants to answer.
If you guys ever start feeling like you're losing your faith always remember there's a devil out there, so there's definitely a GOD!
Here's a good video about the illuminati and the flaws in evolution: Youtube.com
Has everyone in this group lost their ******* minds!?
One person posts a Illuminati video and suddenly we all believe in it? Nice generalization.
I was just thinking about it... We should get some big thing up on the atheists group and we could try to get them to Christ.
I don't think that would be a good idea. I think it would be better if we all just left each other alone to believe or disbelieve whatever we wish as long as it doesn't adversely affect politics.
Also, basset hounds are the ****. I have one named Grendel who is a complete and total prick, but he's so cute that I can't give him up.
They're not interested in listening to any opinion that is religious so don't bother. You'd be wasting your time with that lot.
That's not a fair generalization. I don't believe in God but I'm totally into discussing the philosophical nature of the Bible. The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth I respect quite a lot.
Of course your accepted. The very basis of Christianity is anyone can be accepted, whatever their creed, background, appearance. The gospel is for any and all. Not a select few.
Try Revelation 21:6. Should clear things up nicely. :-)
It would probably be best to ignore those who don't accept you just cause of your apparel. The thing about true Christianity is we don't hate people or judge them based on appearances, but at the same we don't always approve of what they do.
Love the sinner, but hate the sin. As human beings though were making judgements on a daily basis. So it's difficult not to behave in that manner. Which is another reason our walk to be like Christ is a lifelong one that never really ends till we go to be with the Lord. You just have to remain faithful in your heart, as long as you remain faithful there, it will also begin manifesting in your actions. Which gradually begins changing to who God wants you to be. But just remember, it's a lifelong change and journey...
The only perfect Believer who ever existed was Jesus Christ himself. We are made perfect only through believing in what he did for us at the Cross. He paid the debt, the debt for every evil we'd ever committed. So we are in fact sanctified through believing the message of the Cross, not our actions, not our appearances.
Thank you brother, I have been frustrated because in my family we have had to be "perfect" (to not show our faults)and so my faith has suffered because of it, as if I always had a standard to live up to. I know of Grace but I do not live it out. How can I live in Grace and not be legalistic anymore?
Well, the Bible doesn't teach sinless perfection. A Catholic priest once came across this very issue. His name was Martin Luther. What he did to fix it sent shock waves through the Catholic Church and started what we now remember as the Protestant Reformation.
During his time, the Catholic Church was heavily into "works" as a way of Salvation. The were very strict and religious in there ways, just like the corrupt priests back in Jesus day. Priests who religious mentality is what nailed Christ to the Cross.
What Martin understood about the Bible was this, it never taught sinless perfection, the Bible taught we believe in what Christ did for us for salvation. Through his blood, we are justified before God, but only if we believe in what Christ, God incarnate did for us.
Because of that sacrifice, Christ is now our high priest, like the ones in the the old testament, except now it is God himself. Ever interceding on our behalf before the Father. Because of him, when you sin, you are not casted out and still accepted by God. You still should ask God for forgiveness because it's right, but also don't fret, for you are still made just before God, because of Christ.
Back to the point, so Martin did something that still sends shock waves through the Church to this very day, he put his 95 thesis to the front door of the most prominent Catholic church at the time. And the biggest point that was on it, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH. He made that very clear to them. And now we have the Protestants because of it.
We are justified by faith. And faith in Christ Jesus alone...
