Practice Speaking In Tongues
  
To the Moderator: If anything I said was not untruthfull then why would you not put it? Jesus said the gift of the Holy Spirit is not for the World but for those who know Him, therefore it is true(john 14:17) We know that John was not Baptized in the Holy Spirit when he was in Elizabeth's womb, because Jesus said the gift of the Holy Spirit can only come after he dies(John 7:39) Therefore, when people are filled with the Holy Ghost before Jesus' death it is not the same thing as what the Apostles experienced at Pentecost.

The gift of tongues is given, not learned. It is not guaranteed for every believer. You can't practice it since the gift of tongues is the Holy Spirit speaking. Teachers will tell you, "speak without of thinking of anything to say, and you will say unintelligible words, this is the gift of tongues." If you are the one doing the speaking and the Holy Spirit has not taken control of your mouth then you are not speaking in Biblical tongues.

If you desire the truth, then run to Jesus to be your pastor and guide you in His Word. Pray for all wisdom and understanding for most churches are filled with false teachers. Go in your room and read your Word praying for God to teach you all things through His Word. Only God knows what he meant in His Word. God will never contradict His written Word. Read (1 John 2:27). The most spiritually wise and mature are those who spend a lot of timing reading and depending on God to reveal His truth to them. In this day and age when so many false doctrines have crept into this Church, this is a must.

James 1:5
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.

So let's do this. If we lack wisdom in a matter let's pray for God to give it to us.

Do not rely on men to interpret the Word for you since most are false teachers. Depend on The guidance of the Holy Spirit for understanding the Word. God NEVER contradicts His written Word.

1 John 2:27
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

John 14:26
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Romans 11

19Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.

20Well, BECAUSE OF UNBELIEF they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:


21For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

22Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, SEVERITY, but toward thee, goodness, IF thou continue in his goodness: OTHERWISE THOU ALSO SHALL BE CUT OFF.

Believe the Word over a teacher!!!!!! Please repent people.

Who is the Messiah of the Jews? Jesus! Who did Jesus die for only gentiles? Christian Zionism is taught by men, not by God.

Acts 4:
8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,

9If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole,

10Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. ....

12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

If you look up to the Jews more than others. If you esteem them more highly than others then please read God's Word for you are disobeying God.

James 2For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment,

3And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place, and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:

4Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?

9But if ye have respect to persons, YE COMMIT SIN, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.


Walk By Faith Is Impossible
  
I would like to give a formal apology here on CN. After my departure from CN I have learned many things. God has taught me more and more about His love. I apologize for preaching the truth in the wrong light. For saying anything that did tearing down instead of building up. I will always stand by my beliefs, but God has taught me there is a wrong way to speak the truth and I am guilty of that.

I have also learned that God does not like anyone to debate over His word, which I am also guilty of. I don't see me posting much if not at all on CN ever again, so as to avoid debating. I would also like to apologize even to the Moderatot. It wasn't out of love, the things I have said to you in the past. God wants some of you to stay and maybe it's because you can handle it better, I don't know. We must think about what we say before we say it, even in our spoken words.

The internet is a blessing, because you have a lot of time to "think" about what you have to say. Utilize that, all of you. You don't want to regret any of your words because you cannot take them back. Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 12:37.


If I Became A Christian
  
Catherine-"If you were to become a Christian? Did God choose you, if not it makes no difference."

Ask God if it possible if he chooses people he foreknew would believe. For belief is not a work and salvation is not by works(Ephesians 2:8-9),salvation is by grace through faith. I believe it is a mistake to say God chooses first, then comes faith, no I believe it is those whom God foreknew he chose and predestined(Romans 8:29).

If this wasn't so then God did an enie minie mo on who will be saved and who wouldn't, and quite frankly, that seems too unfair and unjust. A person may not be able to say say "I will be a Christian", and become one ,but one can say "I believe in Christ" and become one.(Luke 12:18) Of course not everyone who says this will be saved as Jesus said in Matthew 7:21.

God told us to pray for everyone, including the men in political offices(unsaved) in (1 Timothy 2:1-3). We are told the reason to do this is because God desires all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the Gospel in verse 4.


Is Santa Claus Wrong
  
"Are stories about fairies, Cinderella etc also taboo?'

When they are told as fantasies they are not taboo. Understand that a lie is a lie. Therefore if a child is told Santa is real, the person saying that is lieing. If you want to tell your child the story of Santa ,then it's ok, as long as you keep it as a fairy tale(not real).


Are We To Forgive People
  
"But if you Love our Holy Heavenly Father, you will willingly and lovingly repent of every sin that exalts itself against Jesus Christ and His Mighty Name."

I understand we are to forgive a brother or sister when they repent, not automatically.

Luke 17:3
Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him, and if he repent, forgive him.


Are We To Forgive People
  
2)
Luke 17:4
And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent, thou shalt forgive him.

This is for fellow Christians though.if a brother sins against you and doesn't tepent we must rebuke them, if they repent, then we forgive them.


Are We To Forgive People
  
3)
Most sins done by unbelievers are out of ignorance. So automatic forgiveness for that is a good thing to do. Jesus said, "Forgive them" on the Cross because they didn't know he was the Messiah and were sinning in ignorance. If they did know who he was you can bet Jesus would not of asked God to forgive them.

It does no good to tell a brother/sister who sinned against you, "I forgive you" when they are not sorry, because they have still yet to be forgiven by God.
