Explain Hebrews 10:24-25
  
Melody,

(Nice name by the way )

"Exhort doesn't mean judging"

I never said it did.

Strong's G3870 parakale & #333,

from G3844 and G2564, to call near

My response was to the question, and not directed personally...i simply hope to be correctable, and to encourage, share as enabled...


Suffer From Depression
  
Mike,

there is still much unknown about brain function, and more involved in depression than chemical imbalances, but neurotransmitters etc. are involved, no matter the cause...
The relatively new understandings of neuroplasticity shed some light...too much to go into here.

I'm not a fan of meds either but recognize their value in instances, and over medicating can be a big problem.

"i focus on myself more in a good way". Good for you. Best wishes.


Explain Hebrews 10:24-25
  
Prefaced by vs 23:

"Let us hold resolutely to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful."

What/who is this hope?
.

Notice the conjunction 'and' between vs 23 24.

Since. "we" are to encourage one another, I see the first part of vs 25 as something to be personally careful of rather than something to expect of others since it is not my place to judge others, lest I be judged.


Suffer From Depression
  
Depression does involve a chemical imbalance, however, is the imbalance a cause, result, or both? Most people experience some type during their lifetime, but some struggle with all of their life. There are varied types and severities.

Tim, A choice? I doubt people choose to get depression. Some may choose to stay in it to some degree, but that too I don't think is a clear cut conscious choice, as depression can be complex with varied aspects such as physical, chemical, emotional, psychological...

Mike, yes, being in abusive relationships can at least in part, cause or exacerbate depression. A chemical imbalance does occur. It'S sad if any religious group is abusive as you point out, and reinforce and/or exploit many with struggles


Apostles Write About Jesus
  
If I might add something,

The word 'publish' seen in Strong's predates the printing press, indicating meaning beyond a publication as in books as we know them today. I would think it could include earlier forms of 'writing', and other means of making something known. Pictographs as used by ancient Hebrews is an example, and their message may be passed down through time.


Super Blood Wolf Moon
  
i have not formed an opinion concerning this


Biblical Technology Prophesis
  
I'm not familiar with Sophie...any relation to i-robot?


Release The Last Penny
  
Nicole: "I don't have to know. God KNOWS"

OK.

I asked because when you stated

"If they are in Hell - no reason to pray for them. They are damned for ever.

If they are in Heaven - no reason to pray for them. They received their heavenly reward.

You ONLY pray for people in purgatory to reduce their time before going to Heaven.",

you emphasized the word ONLY with capitalization, to me implying you or we were not to pray for others you mentioned.


Release The Last Penny
  
Nicole, if you ONLY pray for people in purgatory, how do you personally know they are there and not elsewhere?

God does know the hearts.....


Can We Say Father
  
Nicole,

I agree with josef's biblical answer.

There may be various arguments concerning this, such as this concerns one's attitude towards the Father vs an earthly/natural parent and making an important distinction of honoring God over man...is it meant literally? If so or in doubt, the natural parent could simply be referred to as 'dad' or some other synonym.


The New Testament Books
  
I don't know why there are "so few New Testament books". However, this is interesting:
"And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen."
Jn 21:25


The New Testament Books
  
More books, or more words, do not necessarily mean more truth


Aborts And Miscarriage
  
Generally speaking, there's a difference because of choice and lack of choice


Justice Roy Moore Accusations
  
RE: innocent until proven guilty...

if this applies to the accused, in this instance Moore, than it also applies to the women, as they too have been accused.

This phrase can have application to any of us, that we judge not, no matter what we might perceive...


Rich Man Lazarus
  
"What exactly is Abraham's bosom?"
---Loony1 on 10/20/17


to me, from early on, it was simply fathers heart.

Abraham being referred to as "father Abraham", and bosom being : a person's chest when thought of as the place where secret thoughts and feelings are kept or (of a friend) close or intimate. Also, enclose.


Jesus Takes Our Sin
  
Take away in 1 Jn 3:5.

The first thing that came to mind is remove.

In checking G142 airo. To lift, take away, put away, remove and more


End Of World September 2017
  
No one even at these games are FORCED to watch the protests or held HOSTAGE. If they are doing as they want the players to do, which is to stand, hand over heart and face the flag than they will not be looking at the players. The people can also just close their eyes if they so choose and focus on the flag, or God or whatever else...they have options
