Still Call Themselves Sinners
  
Why do people who have trusted Jesus to save them still call themselves sinners? Let each person speak for oneself, about one's reason.

Possibly, someone means he or she is not perfect and wants to be an example of honesty by saying he or she can still sin. This could be more of a scriptural reason.

But others are putting on a pseudo-gesture of honest, procrastinating the correction they need and could already have > Hebrews 12:4-11 > Philippians 2:13-16 > 1 Joh 4:17.


Try To Quit Smoking
  
We need to love our children by being good examples to them. And be good examples in the sight of God, because how we really are inside ourselves is what we can be spreading to help make others the same way, including our children.

Get wise to whatever in you got you to start smoking, and get strong in love against whatever in you now can drive and drag you to smoke.

Jesus is "gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (in Matthew 11:28-30)

So, stuff which is driving and dominating and dictatorial in us is not the kindness and goodness of God's love. So we need to grow strong in God's love with His immunity against evil feelings and emotions.


How To Remove Abuse
  
How is your example?

Did you and your wife bring up your son? What example did you feed him?


Do Ghosts Exist
  
Hi, Nicole (c: In a post, below, you say Jesus would have been mad if they were calling Jesus a demon, by calling Him a ghost. They were not saying that, like how the Pharisees could blaspheme Jesus. So, Jesus had no reason to be angry at them.

And they were not spiritual, at that time. So, they very possibly did not know about things like that.

And, later, Jesus said He had a body which a spirit does not have. He did not say a spirit could not appear to people. And demons are evil spirits.

I think, if the disciples cried out with fear when they saw Jesus on the water, they could have the idea that when they were going to die they could see a spirit coming for them. They were uneducated fishermen.


Bound By Ten Commandments
  
Jerry, I do not try to keep track of what denominations teach.

According to what I find in the Bible, we are not keeping the Ten Commandments, if we are not keeping the two greatest commandments, which are to love God with all we have and love our neighbor as ourselves. Without loving the way God wants, we are not keeping the Ten.

Our Sabbath commandment includes that our servants do not work. We love our servants as ourselves, by making sure they also benefit from rest.

But our Heavenly Father works on the Sabbath. And we are commanded to love God by following His example >

"Therefore be imitators of God as dear children." (Ephesians 5:1)

So, we always are to work with God > Philippians 2:13 (c:


Bound By Ten Commandments
  
I notice how ones keep calling attention to the Ten Commandments, but they do not give attention to our Two Love Commandments.

And in His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus starts right off with how to be >

"poor in spirit".

And then He says more about how to be >

merciful, meek, and pure in heart.

This is not what to do, but how in our character we need to become. I note how this does not get much attention.


Do Ghosts Exist
  
Jesus showed He is not a spirit. This can mean He was not one of Satan's spirits.

What ones call a ghost can be an evil spirit pretending to be a dead human.

A spirit of Satan can effect a human's personality, so when later the spirit appears it seems to be that human, since it shared its characteristics with the selfish human . . . possibly someone who was an idol for people, and so the people would be wishfully ready to suppose the spirit really is that human.


The Power Of The Law
  
The Law of Moses helps to expose sin . . . exposing what in me makes me able to sin.

And in the Law I see things which help to show me how God is and how He wants us to love.

For one example > Leviticus 19:18 < this is where our Second Love Commandment is, to love others as ourselves. And in this same verse it says not to hold grudges or seek revenge. So, loving others as myself includes being as willing for others to be forgiven, as I am willing to be forgiven, myself, I can see from this.


Why Easter And Christmas
  
Well, there are people who claim that December 25 is the birthday of a sun god, and Easter is a day of pagan something.

And ones say that Christians took over those days, in order to use them for celebrating Jesus Christ's birth and His resurrection. They believed it was good to re-invent those days, for God's purpose.

So, in case a pope is using these days, may be we could say he is not inventing, but reinventing??

However, plenty of Jesus Bible believers celebrate Christmas and Easter as holy days, not only for material and social reasons. We can make good use of what is used the wrong way.

Satan does not own any days.

1 Corinthians 3:21-23.


Normal Christian Lifestyle
  
ds, you said, "i must deny my own image. when i deny, i must die"

Every day, we need to die by stopping however we can be love-stupid in our own egos. And trust God to correct us so we are with Him in His peace and how He guides us and inspires and encourages us.

And learn how He has us loving. This, for me, includes how I need to first love and care about and pray God's blessing to people who are a problem for me > as soon as they come to mind, I need however God has me caring for them, instead of cursing them with my paranoid suspicion and criticism and looking down on them.

Even if someone is looking down on me, I need to not let that person get me to do the same thing by looking down on that person!! (c:


Ten Commandments Historical
  
Ones have talked about the Ten Commandments, but they do not give at least as much attention to our

Two Love Commandments,

which Jesus says are the greatest commandments. So, who has decided to call so much attention elsewhere?

Possibly, Jerry, nothing has really changed, but the public competing for attention has changed while the Love Commandment people have always been quietly and humbly . . . loving (c:


I Like A 16 Year Old Girl
  
So, if you know you shouldn't feel this way, trust this to God.

It is possible for a young girl to learn her manner from her mother who is mature. And so she can seem very mature (c: And if she's very nice looking, this can be very confusing if you are judging by appearance! (John 7:24)

She needs to mature, like you do (c:

And if you grow in God's love, you will enjoy discovering how God's love makes it easy for us to have self control with our extravagantly gorgeous and mature Christian sisters (c: And trust our Heavenly Father to join you with whomever He knows you belong with (c:

God bless you, Dalton (c:


How Did Life Begin
  
supernatural

And God's ways are "past finding out" (please consider Romans 11:33) > this is why scientists keep discovering how they can not figure things out. Because our Creator's ways are still working in His creation, including how our bodies function at such a high level (c:


How Does God Select
  
Dave, below you ask about Romans 2:5-7 > this scripture says that those who keep on doing what is good will get glory and honor and immortality. They will receive according to their works, this does say.

But it is God's grace working in these people to cause them to so continue in well-doing. So, it is not merit on their own part! (c:

Also > while we are doing works which God's grace has us doing, this grace is effecting our nature to make us more and more how God's love is . . . so we are ready for Jesus > 1 John 4:17.
