Filled With Holy Spirit
Obey how God rules us in HIs peace >

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15)

And actively seek our Father for how He is able to correct us > Hebrews 12:4-14. God corrects our character so we become pleasing to Him like His Son Jesus >

"rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:4)

Picture Close To Heart
Jesus does want us to love people. But if we love only certain favorite people >

"if you love those who love you, what reward have you?" He says in Matthew 5:46.

So, yes it is possible to have what I call "love idols".

But yes God blesses us with special people . . . ones who help us to discover how to love any and all people the way the Bible says.

So, if someone's example has helped you to become all-loving, and the person has helped you find out how to love any and all people . . . keep this example in your heart, indeed.

Importance Of Free Will
Free will can be an idol.

If I am free from God so I control myself and am not submitting to how He personally guides us in His own peace (Colossians 3:15) . . . then I am free from God, and this is a major problem!!!!

Salvation In The Church
Jesus is our way to God.

He includes His word in the process.

But if a sacrament is only a copy-cat thing . . . this can not work.

Anything we do with Jesus can help. All the time, we need to stay attentive and submissive to how Jesus guides us. His grace has us doing what spreads His grace, all the time. Every action in His love and leading will spread the effect of God's love.

And God's love in us changes our character so we become like Jesus who is so pleasing to our Father >

1 John 4:17.

Was 2020 Election Stolen

I think it was donated to the Democrats, by not having a qualified candidate representing the Republican Party. And before this the Democrats donated the presidency to Donald, by running Hillary.

It seems parties take turns donating the election to the other party.

Importance Of Free Will
Kathr445 > you ask > "Can you show scripture we died a SPIRITUAL DEATH. According to 1 Corinthians 15:45-50 the first man Adam was earthly and not spiritual. The Last man Adam was is Spiritual. Also Job 32:8 the spirit of man.... Man is body soul and spirit. No scripture says the man's spirit died."

Well, in sin a person is conscious, but not alive in God's love. And I consider this >

"But she who lives in pleasure is dead while she lives." (1 Timothy 5:6)

For me, this means being love-dead > not alive in God's love.

Importance Of Free Will
Hi, Ven (c: If my will is free from God so I am making my own choices, I suspect this means I am acting in separation from God.

If I am truly free, I am choosing to submit to how our Father personally rules us in His own peace. Because this is part of our basic Christian calling >

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15)

If we are not submissive to our Father in His own peace, our wills are operating in sin. And our wills, then, are acting in freedom from God!

Coronavirus And Christians
One feature of this virus is it can have very hard effects on elderly people. But if we are older, now we can be more mature and know better how to love, so we are examples for younger people, not helping younger ones to grow up fearing old age and thinking old age is horrible and to be feared.

But in the past we have had older ones who have been helping younger ones to fear old age. So, forgive such ones and do not be fooled by them. With Jesus, now we can have His joy,

"and your joy no one will take from you." (in John 16:22)

Repent of how we have not done this, and give our attention to God, instead (c: Trust God, and prepare to die well . . . however He has planned.

Examine Religious Experience
Here, of course, we do not have the space for reviewing videos. But you can share samples of the experience you wish to share about, with us, here.

And we can discuss them in light of Scripture. The Holy Spirit can include us in helping you with this.

Satan On Over Drive
arguing and complaining which ruins people from finding out how to love in our marriages and our example to help our children know how to relate in close family sharing

What Is Your Truth
Jesus is "the truth", He says in John 14:6

And John says "the Spirit is truth", in 1 John 5:6.

Also, we have that Jesus is "the Word" > John 1:1. I understand this means Jesus is all which God's word means, in Personal Form. And the real truth is how God has us becoming like Jesus and living the way God means by His word.

So, the truth is not only about ideas and explanations. But we seek the true reality of how Jesus in us has us becoming and loving and pleasing to our Father.
