I Am Dating A Married Man
  
I know you think you can't walk away but you can. I would like to encourage you to ask God to open your eyes so that you see this relationship for what it is not what you want it to be. God designed you as his child and no parent wants their child to be served someone else's food, toys, etc. Ask God to give you a peace and to reveal how one sided your situation really is. God will never give you more than you can bear but the moderator is right you have to break contact and never look back.


Did God Design Sexuality
  
"Mother of God" is a Biblical phrase.
cluny where does the bible literally say this? scripture please

"She is the mother of Jesus, not Christ. In order to bring redemption Christ needed a body to die for our sins. He received the human body from Mary. And was called Jesus. He is Jesus Christ. The Son of God in His Divinity, the son of Mary in His humanity. "

amen Markv, Christ had 2 natures, one divine not like ours and one flesh like ours
He followed the one not like ours.

No Markv, the Holy spirit DOES convict ALL of sin. The thing is people can choose God or not. That is scripture. You can like it or lump it BUT please oh please STOP twisting scripture. God says he makes out of the SAME lump. That means BEFORE I got saved I was a vessel of dishonor. After I got saved I became a vessel of honor. (He same lump Markv. You twist scripture so bad you need help.

1st markv, wrong use of those verses. It says make out of the SAME LUMP. Ask Seg, he explains it great.
2nd seg sorry for the misunderstanding. God came to me and convicted me of my sins, told me I needed Jesus, I believed him, repented and was saved. That is what happened and that is how the Bible says it happens. God goes to ALL and convicts them of sin. After that they can choose to believe or turn away.
God came to me first BUT he did not FORCE me to believe truth, I chose to. Otherwise how could he be a righteous judge if he forced me to believe yet denied it to others? He goes to all because he loves all!

seg, warwick is very right. i didnt shut any door. christ is the door . to be saved a person has to go through him. GOD hates all sin but loves all of his creation.


How To Save Children
  
not true markv, the holy spirit covicts all of sin. hs was poured out on all. scripture very clear on these. stop twisting scripture!

Seg,
You have taken Romans 9 completely out of context. He is talking About Israel at that particular point.
He saw each of their heart, decided it would Jacob who Israel would be born through, thus the Messiah who would come, die for the sins of the world and open the door for gentiles.
Context, Context! He hated Esau because He saw Esau did not love him.
Why do people try to use this verse to say God chooses all who get saved? Do you realize you shut the door on those who want to know God?

God loves Everyone because HE is LOVE.
God doesn hate people, he hates SIN!

Amen Craig!!!

john 3:16
For God so loved the WORLD he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOEVER BELIEVES in Him should not perish but have everlasting life

2 peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, NOT WILLING that any should perish but that ALL should come to repentance.

MarkV does not know what to do with verses like this.
He went from one extreme to another. Looking for religion NOT A righteous God.
He should have stayed with rcc, they are closer to the truth.

Love this post!
God loves us so much he will let us deal with the consequences of our actions so we can learn.
The Word says he reigns over the just and the unjust. And I believe reaping and sowing is still in effect too.

Josef, yes it does seem to contradict. But we have to ask why did God hate Esau?
It was because he gave away his birthright for food.
His heart was toward earthly things and not heavenly. We are supposed to have our hearts(minds) toward heavenly things. I believe he hated Esua's actions.
Willie posted a great post. It explains a lot.
Bless you both!

Actually Nate,
God is angry at the SIN they do.

It is the same as my daddy loving me but hating some of the things I did when growing up.
Did he ever stop loving me? No of course not, but he would sure be angry at my disobedience to his commands.


God Loves Everybody
  
Good one Cluny!!
How about these.

1 John 4:8
8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love
1 John 2:2
2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world
Rom 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.


Born Of Water And Spirit
  

MarkV,
A person has to want to change.
God REQUIRES a broken heart.
God ALLOWS people to do as they choose.
They have to seek God FIRST.
This doesnt require a person to be saved. Many people know there is a God and arent saved.
Remember that verse you posted? Thats exactly what it means.
You keep thinking thats giving God permission when it isn't.
God loves his creation so much that he will allow them to do what they want with their lives. He gives them a choice because he loves them.
Its like a parent telling their grown child not to do something bad and they do it anyway. The parent doesn't just rescue the child, a GOOD parent lets the child suffer the consequences.
This is what God does.


Are Prayer Cloths Scriptural
  
I never read where Jesus gave many ways of increasing your faith as you say.
//MarkV

I guess you don't remember saying this, huh?
You did.
I have been saying this the whole time!
You keep rejecting what I say.
If a piece of cloth being prayed over and given to you, helps you to believe Christ will do what he says he will do, then that is INCREASING your faith.
If using a rosary helps you then use it. And from my understanding the rosary is not just used to pray to Mary.
But it is not me who rejected the increasing of faith. YOU DID.
It is ALL about INCREASING your FAITH in GOD.
(not yelling, just emphasizing)


Did Jesus Christ Preexist
  
I too agree with James and Kathr on this one.

By the Kathr, I wanted to say thanks on the romans 9:8 blog but ran out of room. Its a girl by the way and I am so excited!

Anyway,
Jesus met by Mary, he said do not cling to me, haven't ascended, glorified yet.
Doubting Thomas said he needed proof, got to touch the nail holes.
I believe there is a difference here.
Mary wanted to keep him here.
Thomas just wanted to see.
While here before ascension, he had not YET been glorified. Christ says this himself.
Christ is the word and is the son of God and is God.

Cluny not trying to be mean but they GOT to hear about him first. I agree with steveng.
If they don't know, then how will they be saved by Christ?

In fact scripture says " how will they hear without a preacher".
The gospel has to be preached. Taught..
for people to get the truth.
THe truth comes from hearing and it comes by hearin the word of God. The word of God has to be spoken about, taught about, preached about.
Otherwise they will never know and may never get saved.

"What do you want with us, Son of God? they shouted. "Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?" ///MarkV

THis is funny. Of course don't need spiritual ears. They are spirits! Just the wrong ones.
They can see God and Jesus for who they are. And yes they can hear! How else did they hear what Jesus said to them.
Now you are compairing human beings who are sinners to demons?! WOW, that is a low low, MarkV.


Born Of Water And Spirit
  
Again MarkV,
Jusy because you believe and speak does not mean I have to. I read the Bible, I know what it says.
I know what it does not say too. And most of it is your false religions interpretation.

That verse says people can know God and hear his word and yet still sin and not follow him.
The Bible says what it says, I take it at its whole in context. I don't choose or twist what it says. I read it and believe it.
And it does not say anything about total depravity, or God creating some purposefully for heaven or hell. What you believe is false.
Especially when you don't believe God can change any body. I don't believe that God exists. My God loves and can change anyone.

I never read where Jesus gave many ways of increasing your faith as you say.// MarkV

Then I don't know what Bible you are reading.
He uses situations, people, objects, the entire Bible to INCREASE a person's faith.
Our faith grows as we walk in Christ from the size of a mustard seed to a big tree growing by the river rooted and grounded in Christ.
Christ used water, mud, even the hem of his garment to heal people and increase their faith.
If you don't believe God can make your faith can grow, then why did you answer amen to my post on "faith can move mountains?"

You need to go back and read Hebrews 11 too.


Body In Resurrection
  
Many passages contrast spirit (or spiritual) against flesh[ly], natural, carnal, etc.

This "spiritual" body does not mean "spirit-being" as some would purport. It simply means "not sin-wrecked"
---James_L on 5/25/12

I never thought of it that way. But you are right. That is definately some meat for me to chew on. Thank you brother.
