Yes indeedy, this Christian website is a great witness to Christ. If a person is looking to only be pampered and to be fed baby pablum, it's not here on this site. But if your looking for reality, and input from diverse kinds of people whom have diverse beliefs, both Christians and nonChristians, you have come to the right place. I will caution the reader to not believe every word you read on this site, but instead you are free to compare the postings with the holy scriptures. And I will ealso ncourage the reader that my postings are sound and trustworthy, for I am a real born-again Christian and I translate the holy scriptures and I am filled with the Holy Spirit. Enjoy!

Yes, Peter had the faith to step out of the boat and onto the water, but as soon as he put his eyes on the waves, he began to sink. Jesus asks Peter, "Where did you doubt" I believe to get Peter to see what caused him to sink, not to condemn him. It wasn't until he took his eyes off the Savior that everything went awry. However, the good news is that as soon as he said, "Lord, help me", immediately Jesus put out His hand and brought him up.
---Linda on 6/8/10




As Jesus said to Peter when he fell in the water, "Where did you doubt?"
---fay on 6/5/10


All the promises of God are in Christ yes and amen to the glory of God THROUGH US. In other words, when the promises of God are manifested in a believer's life, it is to the glory of God. It requires agreement for how can two walk together except they be agreed? The work has already been done in redemption. The deposit is there. We are not waiting on God to do something. He is waiting on us to believe and receive. That is in no way controlling God. That is God giving us the choice.

"This doesn't feel like love to me."
fay on 6/2/10
Fay, one of the most important aspects in loving someone is to give them what they need, NOT what they want.
We should never give people what they deserve because God doesn't do that.
---Elder on 6/4/10


markV, you are walking by sight, not faith.
---fay on 6/4/10


Fay this is my image of a Christian 1John4:7,8 Beloved let us love one another for love is of God,everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God,for God is love.1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient,kind,doesn't envy,boast, and it's not proud. It's not rude,self seeking,not easily angered,it keeps no record of wrongs. Love doesn't delight in evil,but rejoices in truth. Love always protects,trusts,hopes,and perseveres. If I speak in tongues but have not love I am a resounding gong,a clanging cymbal. If I have gift of prophecy understand all mysteries,and knowledge,and have faith to move mountains,but have not love I'm nothing.

MarkV, believe it or not, I have. And one of the aspects of His character and nature is that of Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals you. He is also Jehovah-Shalom, our peace. Jehovah-Tsidkenu, our righteousness. Jehovah-Shammah, the ever present God. Jehovah-Rohi, our shepherd. Jehovah-Nissi, our standard and banner. Jehovah-M'Kaddesh, our sanctification. He is also El' Elyon, and El-Shaddai, the many breasted one who is more than enough. Oh, and don't forget, Jehovah-Jireh, our provider. My guess is that you deny none of those but Jehovah-Rapha, but the truth is He never acts contrary to His nature. It is we who act contrary to His nature in us.
---Linda on 6/4/10


Darlene 1, you mean with YOUR image of a Christian.
---fay on 6/4/10


Linda, I have something that can be a great help to you and others. You do not have to do it, only if you have a true passion for Christ and to learn.
Find youself all the passages that speak about who God is first. There is books that can help you. They put every passage. It is called the concept of God. Are, "The Attributes of God" Who He is, His nature, what that is, His character, what that is, His attributes, what they are. Learn them and plant them in your heart. Because everything revolves around God not man or man's thinking.
Once you have them, no passage in Scripture can go against who God is, if it does you have mistranslated it.
---MarkV. on 6/4/10


Fay the remark about not having faith enough that one goes to a doctor is so out of line with the image of a Christian. There are people who have plenty of faith but loved ones they prayed for died anyway. It wasn't lack of faith on their part when they went to a doctor in spite of prayer. God knows us before we are even formed in the womb and the steps of a rightous man are ordered by the Lord. If it is God's time for someone to die all the doctors,all the prayers won't change that outcome. God did grant one man in the old testament 15 more years to live but that is the exception not the rule. It hurts other brothers and Sisters-in-Christ to say a loved one died because he/she took them to a doctor and had lack of faith.

Fay, do not be sorry that you believe something and I do not agree. I'm not perscuting you, I was trying to correct you, and you went to far when you said "God was not in control." You are your own person and responsible for your on believes. I am responsible for mine. Again to answer your question, your discernment is wrong, I am not disabled at the moment. I might be later but not now. My answers have nothing to do with what happened to me. Its not personal. My believes come from reading, studying, the Word of God. Such a God cannot be found out by searching. He can be known only as He is revealed to the heart by the Holy Spirit through His Word.
I leave you with peace.
---MarkV. on 6/4/10


The word says a sparrow doesn't fall to the ground without the Father's knowledge, not permission. He is such a loving God he allows us, even the birds,the freedom to choose which way we shall go. Check all the scriptures concerning formation in the womb. Some were ordained of God from the womb. Others were rebellious from the womb. It does not say God made them rebellious.
---fay on 6/4/10


Fay, I do not have any disabilities whatsoever praise Almighty God that it is not His will for me to be disable at the moment. If I am going to be disable it will be because God will permit something to disable me. And when I die it will be that it was my time God asigned me to die. I'm under His power. And so is everyone. Just think Fay, the price of a sparrow is small, and its flight seems unusual and at random, yet it does not fall to the ground, nor alight anywhere without our Fathers permission. His all-wise providence hast before appointed what bough it shall perch upon, what grains it shall pick up, where it shall lodge and where it shall build, on what it shall live and where it shall die. The same goes for everyone and everything.
---MarkV. on 6/4/10


MarkV,John 14:21-25 says that Jesus did so many works(miracles) that if they were all written down the world could not contain the books. Are you saying Jesus lied in John 14 when he said we would do more than he did?

You still have not answered my question, what is your disability?

I am very sorry Mark but I will still deal with you in love no matter how much you persecute me by twisting my words.

It is very obvious you have a disability. Why else would you be so vehemently opposing healing? And why would anyone believe everything concerning healing from one who has not received healing.

If the works Jesus did was to authenticate He was the Messiah, it failed. The religious folks (those He came to) still rejected Him and continued to look for another who met their specifications.
---Linda on 6/3/10


Fay, I only wish you well. I hope you never need a doctor, or be crush in a car accident still alive in pain, waiting for God to put you back together. Because it is not going to happen. What will happen is that you will die right on the spot if someone doesn't come and help you. And even if they do help you, you might still die.
I hear people like you Fay, who sound so righteous about God and want everyone to know. Who teach that others should not go see a doctor, or get examinations. God does heal, whom He wants to heal. And it is not my opinion but comes from the Word of God. What happened in Jesus time was to authenticate Jesus was the Messiah. Those people He healed also died. We all die.
---MarkV. on 6/3/10


No MarkV, it has nothing to do with your unbelief of my understanding of the Word. You are very sarcastic. I have been telling you that for sooooo long, even before you ATTACKED my beliefs. You still have not answered my question about your disability. I am firmly planted in my beliefs. Your "opinion" does not sway me the least and I love you anyway & will speak with love anyway even though you never do. I trust God so much that I would rather die than turn to man for anything. God is my hero, my helper, my healer, my provider, my refuge, my everything. Call it whatever you want. God is my GOD & I will have no other. As for doctors, well if you don't have enough faith then you go see one, but I never will.
---fay on 6/3/10


Fay, it doesn't feel like love to you because people have questioned what you believe and teach about healing. Don't get a doctor, go to Christ in prayer. So if you are in a auto accident and an arm was cut off, do not go to the doctor to save your life or your arm, go to Jesus Christ He will heal you and put your arm back in its place is just so far to the left as a person can go. And you were waiting for everyone to jump up and down and receive your words without question because they have Christ in them. Fay, we still love you, but disagree with your teachings. True love never fails.

Willi, you remind me of someone else on the website that all he does is complain. Complain about every Christian, complain about the Churches, complain about other brothers and sisters and what they are doing wrong. Don't you have something useful that others can edify themselves with? Something positive? If you cannot discuss Scripture with anyone, then why are you here? You do not have to be here to listen to us, you can still use your computer without having to come on here and hear all of us whom you do not like. Elder has been kind answering you. He used good words to answer about the website and its function. Why judge him self-righteous?
---MarkV. on 6/1/10


Willie it is plain for anyone to see that you are bitter. You don't even accept what people say as in my relationship statement. It is your negitive attidue that is causing your problems in the many churches you have been in.
You speak of people being "self-righteous." That attidue is wrong but it is still better than what you have displayed here. You write like a bitter, unforgiving, out of the will of God, Christian.
Now, how's that for hitting the nail on the head?
---Elder on 6/1/10


to elder

you claim that you had / have a 35 year old RELATIONSHIP with your wife. so are you connecting with those who are alienated in your church? do you make them feel welcomed & show them they are persons to be accepted ? or are you so self righteous that your definition of relationship is to 'look for something' to correct.

I have seen many churches where relationship is non-existent. but the funny thing about christianity is they proclaim, profess, preach, & say that it is a RELATIONSHIP but christians are so hung up with their righteousness they forgot to connect with other believers who are PERSONS.

Darline, you are correct when you said,
"So you see it takes some longer to realize the true or real state of their soul and how much they need God and it takes the Word longer to touch them because they already think what they are doing is right."

"Realize the true state of their soul"
To many, the Spirit brings spiritual life to, and gives them the spiritual gifts needed to make a committment by faith, and repent of their sins, through the conviction of the Spirit. This does not happen all at once. Many it takes years to make the committment. They do not realize the state they are in. All they know is that they are seeking Christ, for no one lost seeks after God.
---MarkV. on 5/29/10


MarkV I had never heard of those examples before,they were interesting. My friend really wasn't saved and God showed her that,so I guess she would have been number 4 of those examples. I know there are people who never believe they are completely forgiven by God. Someone in my own family was like that. She would keep saying I did such terrible things I'm not sure I'm forgiven,I would quote the Bible and assure her she indeed was forgiven. Then she would ask me if I was sure of that and I would tell her yes. It is so sad to see someone suffer with doubt like that.
---Darlene_1 on 5/28/10


Darlene 1 -- I've known people like your friend. They THOUGHT they were Christians for 20 yrs. They weren't saved, but, intellectually, they supported Christianity. They were not hostle to all religion nor did they actively seek to undermine Christianity.
---Donna66 on 5/28/10


Darline 2: they believed a wrong gospel. Example, if a person holds to a universalist view of salvation they may reason as follows: Every person is saved. I am a person. Therefore, I am saved.
Because the doctrine is faulty, their assurance has no firm basis. Another way to falsely assure themselves of salvation is by believing that they can get to heaven by trying to live a good life. Those who think they are living the good enough life to satify the demands of a Holy God are only deluding themselves into thinking they are saved.
In the case of your friend, she could have been in group two. Saved, but not know they are. Perhaps they are dealing with sin, or doubt their own salvation. They have not made certain of their own election.
---MarkV. on 5/28/10

Darline, your story of the sister reminds me of what R.C. Sproul wrote in "The essentials of the Christian faith"
He gave four positions of people,
1. there are people who are unsaved and know that they are unsaved. They are bold to proclaim they do not need God.
2. There are people who are saved but do not know they are saved. These people are in a state of grace but are uncertain of it.
3. There are people who are saved and know that they are saved. This people are certain of their election and calling. They have believe the testimony of the Holy Spirit when He witness to their spirits that they are children of God.
4. There are people who are not saved but confidently believe that they are.
---MarkV. on 5/28/10


Donna66 thanks for sharing your view and I can see now where you are coming from. My experience has shown something different. One of my dearest Christian Sisters told that she was in a church for 20 years,never hardly missed a service and was even a Sunday School teacher for several years when she realized she wasn't even saved. She then gave her heart and life to the Lord and lived out her life serving him. I have heard other people say the same thing happened to them. So you see it takes some longer to realize the true or real state of their soul and how much they need God and it takes the Word longer to touch them because they already think what they are doing is right.
---Darlene_1 on 5/27/10


I believe that it is probably the best there is.
---catherine on 5/21/10


Darlene--My view is this. Anybody who has been on these blogs for a month or more has heard the the gospel...if they cared enough to listen.
I don't pretend to be an "expert" at discerning of spirits, but I believe God sends some people to us so we can share the gospel with them. And I also believe Satan sends some to accuse and demean. The first of these deserve our patience and concern. The second group are probably best ignored.

Willie you need to ask my wife how I treat her. 35 years of marriage and I knew her 6 years before we married. She is my Soul Winning buddy. That builds a marriage. We treat each other as the Bible teaches that we should.
When I advise someone here I do it from the Word of God. Many times I have to defend the Bible because so many don't understand what is written. They don't understand to whom, what, when or why certain things were written. Many confuse the issues and try to defend their positions in their misunderstanding.
And you know..... I say... if ya can't stand the heat get outta the house, cause when ya cook anything in the kitchen the whole house heats up.

---aka_joseph on 5/21/10


Donna66,no reprimand to you but think about this,every person who comes on here does so because they are getting something out of being here and the exchange of ideas which goes on. Every nonChristian who comes on here is being exposed to the Word of God and how do you know that person or persons won't be changed because the Bible says the Word of God will not return void. There is also this to consider,we as Christians are to operate every day in the Law of Love. God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Jesus,he's God's son,his birth,death,and resurection will be saved and how can anyone believe unless they hear the Word. We need to remember to love our neighbor and show it.

elder

so how do you know what you are saying is right or wrong. everybody can justify what is right & wrong.

I read comments & answers & many do not want to accept the rebuke they are given. and is brotherly/sisterly love based ONLY on 'rebukes'. remember the pharisees thought they were never wrong when they accuse sabbath healing is a sin. rebuking everybody. and if you correct others, do you really know the issue or is it a vague 'rebuke'.
is that how you treat your wife always rebuking her or giving her freedom to BE her as a person.

I've enjoyed this site agreat deal, but then I like a good debate about interpretations of Scripture or how they should be lived out.
Disagreements among Christians shouldn't be taken personally, nor should personal references be made demeaning an opponant. These blogs are the easiest way to carry out such discussions in a spirit of respect and friendship in Christ.

I'm tired of the discussion being hijacked by someone who doesn't believe God exists, isn't interested in learning about Christianity and has nothing to offer Christians. I wonder why his posts continue to be accepted. I guess the best thing is to ignore him.

"where is the brotherly/sisterly love?"
willie
You know Willie, I may love you enough to show you the error of your way. Pointing out the proper use of Scripture is an act of love. Why would someone claim to love their children and let them play in the street?
The perfect example of what I am saying is in your post. Did you post because you wanted to be hateful or because you are concerned about how people treat each other?
I suspect it was because you were concerned for what is best for the people here.

Willie, while I agree that there is a lot of arguing, I have also found a number of Christians who were willing to discuss things with me, even when we had some differences (always on minor matters, not matters of the creed), and we have often found we actually agree more than we thought at the beginning

There are, of course, too many disputes, but that is not for the website to sort out - it is for the members

I thoroughly enjoy the blogs portion of the site and visit nearly daily. Not only does it provide insight as to the beliefs of the bloggers, it also helps me to hone my own understanding of my Faith.

I've often thought it would be interesting to have a forum where, each day, a passage of Scripture was presented, and readers from all Christian perspectives could give their input as to their understanding of what the Scripture meant. This could help us all to focus on those things we all commonly believe, and help us to set aside the doctrinal disagreements.
