Those That Lost Faith

Something I feel God has placed on my heart and has asked me to share with you.

Please pray daily for these two intentions:

1. For those who have no one to pray for them.

2. For those who have lost their faith.

I am sorry you received a snake and not a fish. I am sorry people have hurt you. I know many sisters have being abused by their husbands. Maybe your problems are worse then theirs, no one knows but you. I will pray for you mike. And will ask God if it is His will to stop bad people going your way.
---Luke on 7/31/14

I can only judge you by what you say. And all you have said is complain. So a few people have hurt you, why do you think everyone is like that? I never had your problem with anyone that I know. Ok, so maybe you are saved, why no good fruits? Not one good thing about anyone. Somewhere in your life, there were good people. You say Christians as if everyone is like those you mentioned. Look, mike, you can continue to complain being a Christian, that is ok by me. I just wanted you to give others a break, we all fail, I know you do too. Don't you want God to forgive you for failing? I know I do. Agape
---Luke on 7/30/14


christians ARE the ones WHO did NOT have anything good to say to me. a pastor was the one who accuse me of SIn, the only reason I am going to church is because of a woman (i thought christianity is a relationship). how dare YOU accuse me. that is the same when the pharisees accuse the blind, sick of sin. your name is NOT luke but Eliphaz, bildad. when they saw job suffering they accuse him of sin right away. btw why don't you practice what the bible says about self denial, carrying your own cross but i doubt that. thank you for giving me a snake when I ask for a fish.
---mike on 7/29/14

when I said that people fail, I was trying to say for you to give people a break. you fail also. What it seems to me you are saying is that you hate being a Christian. Maybe you thought you were saved, but never were. We know Christians by their good fruits, you have no good fruits to speak of. Christians are to love their neighbor, you have nothing but contempt for everyone. We are to forgive others, but you show no forgiveness for anyone who has hurt your feelings.
A true conversion carries with it a true repentance. You have to have a contrite heart, a deep remorse for having offended God. I don't know why you believe you are a Christian, but you show no joy for Christ at all. Agape
---Luke on 7/29/14

Mike : from your posts i can infer that you didn't understand those pastors or you didn't take their message completely. Just like when you were a baby trying to walk, some others helped you to learn how to walk. Even so in your matured state, you still need God to always guide you in all things in order to live a godly good life.
Rejecting God's guidance is the SELF that the pastors condemned because if you're not humble & gentle, you cannot follow God/Jesus.
---Adetunji on 7/29/14


I have heard pastors say 'don't rely on your SELF'.why don't they elaborate the difference bet idleness & laziness & whatever sin self reliance is. & when you ask them, they don't want to listen you your questions. why is it that when christians hear the word SELF they accuse you it is a sin. btw, do you think that everytime something bad happens IT's OUR fault? what about ignorance & stupid teachings from christianity. it tells us to deny & carry our cross obviously you cherry pick the bible. why don't you deny yourself & carry your cross & let us see what happens.
---mike on 7/28/14

if you say that man fails then ALL their teachings are useless. pastors don't admit that they fail. they just shove a dogma/verse down your throat for us to obey. when you ask them how is their teaching going to apply in the real world they cant answer & when you rebuke them they get defensive & use 'ye not judge me'. bullcrap. they should practice what they preach & not be hypocrites.
---mike on 7/28/14

man sin & falls short of the glory of god...who quoted 'deny yourself & carry your cross?' christian life is wonderful. honestly all I experience are frustration, disappointments, confusion, heavy loads, stress, accusations from so-called 'brothers', alienated, rejection, loneliness, and when you ask a 'chrisitan' a fish they give you a snake. many have the same kind of experiences I had/have. that is why they got tired of all the excess baggage christianity brings
---mike on 7/28/14

Mike:// bible says be god reliant not self reliant. am I to sit down & wait & demand for entitlements (is that god-relance?) I work I pay my taxes, I try NOT to be a victim unlike..//
God reliant or dependent is not the same as idleness or laziness . The 1st man Adam was given task by God to do. Being dependent on God is being led of God in all things (choices : city, work, spouse, ministry etc).
Sometimes God's children maybe out of job (by their fault or otherwise) & waiting for direction or redirection from God. At such period, we need to pray for them not jest them.
---Adetunji on 7/28/14

The Christian life is a wonderful life. Sure we have problems in many areas but we know that God is in control of all things. That is why He gets the glory. You don't have to give up everything you have. Jesus does not ask you to do that. you give up your heart to Him. Some people do not work, some have reasons and others don't. But that is the life of all humans. We make many mistakes through life. But God is there to pulls us through. Agape
---Luke on 7/26/14

Dear Mike,
you have to understand that man falls short of the glory of God. He is fallible. So long as sin is in the world, man will fail. All man. That does not mean we don't have some great man who teach very well. Another thing you have to take into account is that on this site people who answer come from all sorts of backgrounds, and different countries. Even atheist answer here. So your are going to get a lot of disagreements. Some here are pretty hostile. All they want to do is stir-up trouble, and in the process they compromise the truth the other person is teaching. But we all fail at some point or another. Just be aware of that. Don't ever be shocked how you are treated anywhere, because people fail. Only God never fails. Agape
---Luke on 7/23/14

so if you are saying follow god not man then what does 'self denial mean' christ/bible said that. are we to give away everything & sacrifice ALL our time & money?there is NO balance when you hear the 'gospel' when I lost MY job I have to look of a job, go to an interview & work. the bible says be god reliant not self reliant. am I to sit down & wait & demand for entitlements (is that god-relance?) I work I pay my taxes, I try NOT to be a victim unlike other people. Is that a SIN? and if you interpret the bible YOUR own way you WILL still be accuse that is NOT how you interpret the bible. look at the arguments at this website. christians fight & squabble & insult one another. wow what testimony.
---mike on 7/22/14

Dear Mike,
one of the most important things we should be doing is we should be aware there are many who teach a false gospel. So our duty is to check on what they teach, by comparing it with Scripture. Man great man have made mistakes and do not know they have. Some do it on purpose and others because they are really not saved at all. So we are taught in Scripture to be aware. Warning are given to all who believe. Those warnings stop us from falling. God wants us to put our faith in Him and His word. Not on man. If what man teaches is true, then we put our faith in the Truth of God spoken by those man. Agape
---Luke on 7/8/14

hi luke

aren't we told to obey & if we obey god will punish us? so where is the line between obedience & putting faith in others? if that is the case then what is the point of going to church if we are not to obey the word of god through pastors & other people. pastors should LISTEN to OUR side of the story not ALWAYS their 'teachings'.

Dear Mike,
You sound like someone who put their faith in someone else other then God and were disappointed that what they said did not come true. Its like what Bryan is saying, about all he says he can do. And if you believe that you will be very disappointed.
As Christians we make a lot of mistakes for many reasons. Some selfish, some because we are too proud to admit we are wrong and other times because they are doing the desires of their father the devil and don't even know it. Hear what people have to say, compare it to what God's word says, because man will fail all the time but God never fails, only put your faith and trust in God. When God does not do something we want, it always has a reason. He is never wrong. Agape

pray for those who lost their faith? will it work? when people understand what they went through they want to waste anymore time. i have prayed for the will of god, his plan but they are vague not definite specific description of what the will or plan is. all i got was some moralistic obedience that will result in some kind of blessings or god will shower you with manna like he did.
---mike on 7/3/14

pray for those who lost their many christians belived & trusted the word of god bec. he cannot lie but how can dysfunctional teachings apply in the real world? we are told to be doers of the word even how difficult it is. what do you hear most of the time at church? mostly religious dogmas that you CANNOT question for questioning it is an accusation of lack of faith. i have hear about FAITH HEALINGS where children died, or christians obeyed some dogma that are full of legalism or ascestism. christians just end up being exhausted, weighed down & disillusioned that is why they feel they have been abandoned & when they reflected on what happened they find out they have been brainwashed.

Elena, I learn a lot from you as well and you are such a wonderful presence online here. Everyone here has so much to share, good times difficult times, and if everyone is absolutely honest about their walk wit the Lord, we all fail and become discouraged. BUT we also GROW through those experiences. And it is those exact experiences we grow up from.

---kathr4453 on 6/27/14

Nana good post. One thing that had come to mind was a Ministry went over to Russia and preached the gospel, but mixed with that gospel was this prosperity teaching. Well a few years later another Ministry visited, and found all were totally discouraged and even questioned the truth of the Gospel itself. Well, the 2nd ministry, (praise God, God sent them) was able to bring these people into the deeper truths and able to Give HOPE again to these who were so mislead. They didn't ask for prosperity, only the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. And that truth will set you free.

Paul spent much time even in Galatia correcting where false teaching came in. Even Apollo had to be taken aside and brought into deeper truths.
---kathr4453 on 6/27/14

//But you teach a man the Gospel and you will have a brother for life. Then you can do all things through Christ who stenghten you.//

Your statement is very true if the man you are teaching is already a believer in Christ, a brother for life. Because you cannot make a man a brother unless God wants him saved. God makes them brothers and sisters when He makes them spiritually alive and gives them faith. For we are told about the lost,
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us (believers) who are being saved it is the power of God" 1 Cor. 1:18.
To those who are being saved, which is us, it is the power of God, to the others who are not saved it is foolishness. Agape

"... cause some to become prosperity teachings, absolute healing etc. and lose faith"
kathr4453 on 6/26/14

These verses come to mind: "And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."
However, "prosperity teachings, absolute healing etc." are iniquity. Enduring in those will just yield fuel for the fire.
---Nana on 6/26/14

Cluny, I really like this post.

People who lose faith, it is not necessarily a sin. After Peter Denied Jesus he felt so bad because of his own failure that he almost gave up, until Jesus reassured him.

Sometimes "life' can throw us for such a loop, along with possibly wrong teachings, that one, (to use the expression,) "looses faith" . God understands, and possibly through that wants to teach us something even deeper. Stay in your Bibles and don't lean on your own understanding or false teachings that my cause some to become prosperity teachings, absolute healing etc. and lose faith

Yes we all need to pray for one another.

Thank you Cluny for such a thoughtful blog .
---kathr4453 on 6/26/14

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

one verse that will help anyone is this. even if you don't FEEL it, BELIEVE IT. Don't look at your circumstances in life, Look at God's truth.

//Why you blame God for their unbelief?//

Dear Nana,
God put the curse on mankind. No one else did. Every descendant of Adam is under the curse of the law. All descendants of Adam are born sinners, for none can keep the law. The law is cursing them.
"cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them" Gal. 3:10.
The curse which sinners have fallen, cannot be removed nor the transgressor released until full satisfaction has been made to it.
For, "by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight" Rom. 3:20.
---Luke on 6/26/14

2 Corinthians 13:5 "Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith, prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?"

"Their hearts have not being changed by God."
Luke on 6/25/14

Why you blame God for their unbelief?

Jesus said, John 3:19 "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil."
It is clear.

And evil heart of unbelief is speaking of those who are still lost "unbelief". Their hearts have not being changed by God. In many congregations we see many of those that are among us. That is why most of the problems Christians have come from within the visible church. It happens here also from those who are still lost, they have an evil heart, always trying to hurt another person with their tongues "insults". Agape

For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end"

Hebrews 12:14_16 "Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God, lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled, Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright."
---Nana on 6/24/14

Dear Darline,
what you just said it correct when we see another brother sin which is not unto death we are to pray for them. A brother always remains a brother. Same with a sister. We pray for them not because God changes His mind because we ask, but we pray because we are commanded to pray for each other, and we pray because it our means to spiritually communicate with God. But at no time does God lose any of His children. That was my point. God never loses anyone. The one's He calls, He justifies, those He also sanctifies, and those He also glorifies. Those the Father gives the Son are never lost, it is another promise of Jesus. I too am a prayer warrior. Agape

Luke with all respect,you don't know it wasn't God who placed that on Cluny's heart,that is what God does. Cluny is right the Bible tells us if we see a brother sin a sin which is not unto death we should pray and give him life. Furthermore the Bible tells us to pray for one another and carry each others burdens,that fulfills the Law of Love. Those are two good prayer requests to ask for because we all too often get caught up in our own lives and forget to pray for them. Poor people who have no one to pray for them and how horrible to loose faith. Please check God's Word before you jump to the wrong conclusions. We can pray people to God as the answer to their problems. We pray,God answers and draws them to Him. God Bless

Mike this is what I don't like about religions, they always leave out elements of the word. They tell you to get in the car and go, but there is no motor in the car. Then they say things like you don't have enought faith. Or your not in the right church. And they tell you your not righteous or holy enough. Condemning you. Tell you right now that is not of God. Read the Gospels as if Jesus is talking directly to you, cause he is. You are saying his words right out of your on mouth. No translators needed.
---Bryan on 6/21/14

Dear Cluny,
The reason I answered you is because you correct others to the point of getting upset at them when they do not say the right things or write correctly. Here you say, "God has placed on your heart and asked you share with us those two things you wrote."
I know it was not God who put that in your heart. You tell me, "would God ask you to pray for those losing salvation?" Why? You suppose He is losing His children, who are born of the Spirit. That He is not able to make them stand, so He ask you to pray for them, as if somehow your prayer will help God bring them back to Him. God loses no one, and does not need anyone's help. Prayer does not help God, it keeps our communication with God. Agape

reason a christian lose their faith is because they find that christianity DOES NOT WORK in the real world. i have experience that.

I see those who are quick to accuse are hypocrites. they don't practice what they accuse you of & when you rebuke them for the very same SIN they accuse you they justify SIN by saying 'ye not accuse me' what's the difference. especially pastors they are the NUMBER 1 hypocrites.

Dear Cluny,
How in all the world can you possibly believe Adam and Eve left God? Did God not talk to them after their sin? Was He not there with them all through their lives? Did God ever say both of them were saved then lost and then saved again? The fact is there was no sacrifice for sin yet. They disobeyed but they never left God sight. They could not hide from God, no one can. Agape

There is no one who has saving faith and then loses it. Saving faith does not come from us, but from God. It's almost like what Ruben was saying,
That a believer can leave Jesus if he wants. Which is not possible. Jesus who is God said,
"I will never leave you no forsake you" If He never leaves you how can you leave Him? It's impossible, for no matter where you go, He is with you. No one can hide from God.
Those who are saved are never lost again. For no sin can ever remove us from the kingdom of God, for we are saved by grace through faith. But I do pray for those who have no faith, that God changes them and gives them a new heart. We are to pray daily for those who have faith, and those who don't. Agape

Intercessory prayer is certainly meant to benefit the person being interceded for. And since it is a loving act, it certainly benefits the person praying, too. God loves us and will do His best for us despite our faulty words.

"The purpose of prayer is to get us closer to God to be able to move with Him". Thanks, Cluny, for being specific in this blessed way. I have never heard truth expressed more clearly!

\\If the prayer is answered negatively, did someone use the wrong words?
---Geraldine on 6/18/14\\

Prayer is not some kind of magic formula that requires use of magic words to get the spell right.

Saying a simple prayer for those who have no one to pray for them, such as the Lord's Prayer, will be effective both for the person needing prayer and those offering it.

Don't forget that the purpose of prayer is to get us closer to God to be able to move with Him.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Is intercessory prayer for the benefit of the one who is prayed for or the one who is praying, or both? If the prayer is answered negatively, did someone use the wrong words?
---Geraldine on 6/18/14

Cluny, I will pray.
