Pray For President Trump
It is my duty to pray for Trump just as it was the duty of Christians to pray for Nero.

While Trump is not as bad. He is stealing from the poor to give to the rich. As James speaks of which will happen in the last days.

The problem is who do we trust. Many look at CNN and others and say don't trust them. Trust Fox.

But I have with my own eyes and ears heard fox change the news to benefit the pro Nazi's and white only people.

I watch 13 News and Read the Houston Chronicle. They have both told the truth no matter what. Why should I trust those who I have seen lie? Why should I trust Breitbart which supports the Klan?

My faith is in GOD not politicians.

Do Ghosts Exist
Hello Strong Ax. The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus tells that those who are rich think they are saved. While they despise the poor because they considered them cursed.

When in fact the opposite could be true. Jesus told them they would not believe if Lazarus was raised.

He raised Lazarus and they didn't believe him.

Tell me what kind of bodies those in hell and the Bosom of Abraham have?

Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
1Corithians 15:16-18

Where in the Bible is the words immortal soul?

Law That Christ Fulfilled
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

The law in particular the Ten Commandments tell us what is a sin. Romans 13:8,9 confirms this.

When we sin we need to confess our sin. Which put us under grace. 1John 2:1-3

Living in sin without confession. Puts you under law. Those who live for Jesus seek to live in love. Love leads to keeping all the Commandments of the Ten.

In Matthew 5 Jesus says the law applies to what we think also.

We must be Born Again and those who are will live in love.

Do Ghosts Exist
Actually Micha

There are many Protestants who don't believe that A servant of the devil can command a Prophet of GOD to leave heaven or where the dead are come to them.

I don't believe most Christians think the Devil is more powerful than GOD.

Also Saul thought or perceived it was Samuel from the description of the witch.

That Saul was going to die was easy. Any person could guess that.

The Power Of The Law
Good point David and Micha

Do Ghosts Exist
I agree that no Ghosts exists. Spirit in the Bible is also translated as Breath. No where in the Bible is it stated we have an immortal soul.

Genesis stated we are a soul.Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul.

Only God is immortal.

1Timothy 6:16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto, whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

Read Or Study The Scriptures
True and good points made. We need to study the Bible.


Bound By Ten Commandments
True we need to call attention to the Sermon on the mount also. It is a blueprint for how we are to live as Christians. So both as well as the whole Bible needs to be studied and followed.

All Scripture is for study to teach us. Some of higher importance but all to be understood.

Do Ghosts Exist
Good point Bill. I agree.

The Power Of The Law
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

The law tells us what sin is. We are convicted by the law which is a tutor to bring us to Jesus. Galatians.

James also compares the law to a mirror. It shows us the dirt in our lives. But Paul makes sure we know the law tells what sin is.

But it is not the cure. Grace and being Born Again filled with the Holy Spirit is the cure.

Let us look to Jesus. So we will not walk in sin. But live in love. Agape

The Power Of The Law
True the law leads us to Jesus. It tells us we are sinner and need to be saved.

Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

So the law tells us what is sin and what we should not do. James says the law is like a mirror. It shows us our problems but does not cure them.

That takes Grace and the blood of Jesus.


Ten Commandments Historical
No John. Sister White never says we can earn salvation. But if a person live in sin without repentance. They are not saved.

As has been stated. Those who are saved will live saved.

Christ was treated as we deserve, that we might be treated as He deserves. He was condemned for our sins, in which He had no share, that we might be justified by His righteousness, in which we had no share. He suffered the death which was ours, that we might receive the life which was His. "With His stripes we are healed." {Desire of Ages, page 25

Why Easter And Christmas
There was one united Church until 1056 AD. Then it split in two. Often referred to as the Great Schism.

After that there existed the Orthodox churches and Roman Catholic church.

Both insist they were the real apostolic church. The RCC states that the Popes were always the head of all the Churches from the first so called pope Peter till now. On the other hand the Orthodox totally dispute the Popes of Rome were the leaders of the whole church ever.

Ten Commandments Historical
True love forbids breaking the Ten Commandments. Love of GOD and love of others. But some insist that love does allow people to break the commandments.

True we teach a time for the investigative judgment. Others don't call it that. They call it the Bema judgment seat. They are similar in that both say all Christians will face judgment just like the Bible says.

Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

So what is the big difference? I know does anyone else know this doctrine?


Favorite Translation Of Bible
I like the King James is sounds beautiful. The New King James is good. But I also like the New American Standard Bible.


Where Is Elijah And Enoch
Moses and Elijah are in heaven. They were taken up into heaven.

Jesus went up by his power. I don't know if that is the correct answer. But the Bible is plain those two went up. Elijah and Moses appeared to Jesus.

Others propose that the going up of Jesus is different because of his primacy.


Ten Commandments Historical
While there were some long ago who always wanted to get rid of the Ten Commandments since they didn't want to live like Jesus.

Today some believe they live more like Jesus when they don't think or follow the Ten Commandments. But that does not make sense since GOD which also means Jesus wrote them on stone.

In Matthew 5 Jesus uplifted the Ten Commandments and pointed out they applied to thoughts and the heart.

Hebrews says GOD will write his laws in our hearts.

Dispensationalism started the teaching of the Ten Commandments being done away with. That was in the 1900's. It has become very popular.


How Did Life Begin
I have read a number of times that having similar DNA proves Evolution and close relationship from ancestry.

But why would GOD not use similar tools to build all that exist.

Evolution starts with something that Science says is impossible.

Non living matter must become alive. That has no way for it to happen. They have been trying to get it to happen for a long time.

Intelligent design Christians says that GOD has used his intervention to lead all that happened to bring about people and his desire.

They are still Christians. I just disagree.


How Did Life Begin
Strongax yes day can be used for different lengths of time. Adam was told to rest on the Seventh day. Since that is one of the days of creation it does not fit as being thousands years. In the Fourth Commandments in Exodus 20 it says to keep the Seventh day of Creation memorial. We don't live thousands of years to be able to do that.

I can only go by what GOD says. So I believe Genesis states it correctly. When Genesis happened I don't know. When the earth was created. I don't know. It was in existence before the first day since the earth there but without form. Also Adam named animals.

I used to believe in Evolution. I have no argument with Intelligent Design. I see it as a compromise. But not a salvation issue.
