Violent Take It By Force
  
"From John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force." Read the scripture in context. John the Baptist was forcibly arrested and suffered the violence of having his head decapitated. Likewise, Jesus was threatened when the crowds tried to 'seize' Him and throw him off a cliff.
Then read what Jesus says about his own generation in the verses that follow.

'Harpazo' almost always has a negative connotation regarding violent or forceful seizure by thieves, robbers or violent men. The only exception is when the saints of God are seized or raptured by the bridegroom.


How Do You Forgive Yourself
  
So Duane, does Matt. 18:23-35 apply to just the people under the law? Because this parable is very similar in intent to the Lord's Prayer when it says , 'forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors'. How does Matt 18:23-35 apply to us? Also one of my favorite verses is, "If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed" John 8:31. Don't we continue in His word even after the cross? Aren't the Lord's Prayer and Matt 18:23-35 His word? Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever.


How Do You Forgive Yourself
  
Duane, So Before the Cross= IF you forgive, you will be forgiven.
After the Cross= We forgive as Christ HAS forgiven us. You are saying that what Jesus said before the cross doesn't apply to us now? Your reply makes no sense. Jesus said Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Whatever Jesus said before the cross applies to us not only today, but forever. The Lords prayer says, Forgive us our debts, AS WE Forgive our debtors. This applies to us forever.


How Do You Forgive Yourself
  
You can believe you are forgiven all you want, but if you don't forgive others, you won't be forgiven. The parable of the man who was forgiven a huge debt, went out and didn't forgive his neighbor a small debt,and he was thrown BACK IN PRISON because he didn't forgive. In fact it says the King was extremely angry with that man.
'Forgive us our debts AS WE FORGIVE our debtors.' Jesus said it, I believe it. Forgive and you will be forgiven. It starts with the blood of Christ and after we receive forgiveness we need to be quick to forgive others.


How Do You Forgive Yourself
  
"Forgive us OUR debts AS we forgive our debtors." Forgiveness is directly related to how we forgive others. God freely forgives, however, if we don't forgive others, it will not flow to us. Stephen even forgave the ones who were stoning him and took his life. If he can forgive them, who is there we can't forgive?


Mega Church Pastor Salaries
  
ITimothy 6:3-10 means to us as Christians?
Jesus stated this fact very clearly,'My kingdom is NOT of this world'. These are the sound words of Christ. If the money were coming in and going out to meet needs, fine. But to take money in in order to 'build a kingdom' because God wants you rich would not be what Christ has called us to do.
ITim 6:5..."who suppose that godliness is a means of gain." How many preachers promise great wealth if you do what they say?
God doesn't promise financial gain, He promises a relationship with Him (worth more than all the wealth in the universe). Satan was the one who promised all the wealth of the world to Christ if he would bow down to him. Hmmmm.....sounds kind of familiar????


How Can God Send People To Hell
  
Is that anti-Christ or Anti-Christ, as in "The Anti-Christ"?

Fail To Keep The Commandments
  
Kay I am baffled by your blogs, it seems you think you know all and you have every right to tell people what they should do and believe. Is this the ways of christians, or satan? Lucy demands for proofs of your blog on EGW and to date you have none. Is any forthcoming? if not I suggest you apologise. Your past blog insults others..not the way of christians...

most have missed the answer between the binding union between i man and one female when the bible clearly states other wise this was the question.


Baptized And Spoke It Tongues
  
To Fred S., I believe today that it's mostly muttering and studdering. Alot of these people only fool themselves. Most tongues today just being misused and trying to put them up for the real thing.


Baptized And Spoke It Tongues
  
Rebecca you talking that tongue stuff again. Most tongue misused today. When God speaks to you is it in language you can't understand? If it is then you don't know what he's saying.


My Husband Smokes Cigs
  
Ralph, You talk of motivation, are you speaking from experience, if not you have no idea of what it takes to stop smoking.


Should Christian Consume Drinks
  
Point is Rebecca you don't know who will go to hell and who won't. Stop being the JUDGE! As I said before if you get to heaven you can speak to Samson.
