Did Eve Or Adam Sin
---Donna5535 on 11/19/10
Male and female created He them,
and blessed them,
and called their name Adam,
in the day when they were created.
Forgiveness Before Sinning
The answer is No.
No one has quoted 1 example, it doesn't exist.
The whole world isn't forgiven either. It is available upon conditions...
but God has told us that all will not be forgiven.
People will be destroyed because of their own sin.
Also, IF believers were already forgiven,
Why did Jesus tell us to ask for forgiveness daily? Mat6,Luke11?
Why would Jesus tell believers if we didn't forgive our brothers,
God wouldn't forgive us either?Mt6:15,18:35
IF all sins were forgiven, why would God tell us that:
"but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost,
it shall not be forgiven him,
neither in this world, neither in the world to come. "(Mat 12:31,32)
Early Gentile Converts Sabbath
Why did they command them to abstain
from blood and things strangled? (Acts 15:20)
Why did they say they could learn
what Moses taught on the Jewish Sabbath days? (Acts 15:21)
Here is an O.T. commandment
Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment:
thou shalt not respect the person of the poor,
nor honour the person of the mighty:
but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour.
Here is a N.T. condemnation
resulting from breaking that O.T. commandment
But if ye have respect to persons,
ye commit sin,
and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
Wife's Hatred Toward Men
I would pray first that God would lead you to the right counselor.
Gary Chapman's book The Five Love Languages is great.
Available on CD or MP3 too. Incredible stories of marriages recovering.
I would pray everyday.
Before praying please remember these:
If I regard iniquity in my heart,
the Lord will not hear me:
1Peter 3:7...that your prayers be not hindered.
If we confess our sins,
he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Luke 11:4 ...And forgive us our sins,
for we also forgive every one ...
Remarry Because Of His Ex-Wife
I think I understand your point. I believe it's a valid one.
If his first wife did not cheat on him,
he had no grounds for divorcing her under God's law,
so he was still married to her according to scripture.
Here is another scripture to consider:
But if the unbelieving depart,
let him depart.
A brother or a sister
is not under bondage in such cases:
but God hath called us to peace.
Acne Scars Causing Depression
I read a book "Coconut Cures" by Bruce Fife and a woman gave her testimony of being healed from horribly severe acne scarring.
She learned about the healing powers of Philippine virgin coconut oil and she began applying it all over her body for 30 days and noticed great improvement.
I can't remember exactly how long it took...maybe 6mo. but she said it completely healed her of all scaring. She said her dermatologist couldn't believe it. She said her face was as smooth as a baby's bottom.
Me and my husband have also had similar experiences, we didn't have acne scars but other scars were healed.
I recommend Tropical Traditions because they still make theirs from the Philippines and others don't.
Stop Sinning Before Christian
Immediately therefore I sent to thee,
and thou hast well done that thou art come.
Now therefore are we all here present before God,
to hear all things that are commanded thee of God.
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said,
Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
But in every nation
he that feareth Him,
and worketh righteousness,
is accepted with Him.
Peter noticed these things:
A person who fears God and
A person who works righteousness
The Lord will accept and hear them.
Remember you can't receive forgiveness if He does not hear your prayer.
If I regard iniquity in my heart,
the Lord will not hear me...
Bible Is Hard To Understand
Bible version matters. From the King James
"And it came to pass by the way in the inn,
that the LORD met him, and sought to kill him.
Then Zipporah took a sharp stone,
and cut off the foreskin of her son,
and cast it at his feet,
and said, Surely a bloody husband art thou to me.
So He let him go:
then she said,
A bloody husband thou art,
because of the circumcision."
Circumcision was commanded in the Old Covenant.
Moses had not performed this on his son (didn't obey God). Moses' wife was resisting it, and only after the Lord was going to kill Moses did the wife do what she was supposed to do. Then the Lord let Moses go, because of obedience.
I Am Furious With Him
If he is a good man and worthy of you marrying him and being with for 23 years...why be angry with him?
If YOU trust him, nothing else matters.
No one can harm your marriage but you.
I agree with Pati3447. You need to pray and empower yourself instead of feeling threatened. God protects His children, stand on your faith in Him and He will help you.
Fell Asleep And Went To Heaven
There is a definite article before "the righteous". Do you think that means there is only one righteous who will inherit eternal life?
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment:
but the righteous into life eternal.
Or do you think there is only one commandment?
As far as the Sabbath is concerned, I have shared with you in detail Hebrews 3-4 which explains clearly there remains a rest for the people of God.
Here is one more for you, and though you turn your head from it, God's people will see and believe.
And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments,
and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.
Saved By Doing Things
---Curious.one on 10/23/09
Not at all, I do not believe in universalism.
I know the definition of hell. The Bible says that the wicked will not be granted eternal life. Only the righteous will be given eternal life. The wicked will burn in the lake of fire...but they will have an end.
How can a soul be destroyed if they live forever? Not possible. God said he will destroy the wicked and they will be no more. They will be ashes under the souls of our feet. We will search for them, but they will not be.
They will have spiritual and physical death.
I can give you the scriptures if you are interested.
Who Are The Real Jews
You misunderstand what it means to be in Christ and to be a Jew.
But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly,
and circumcision is that of the heart,
in the spirit,
and not in the letter,...
And if ye be Christ's,
then are ye Abraham's seed,
and heirs according to the promise.
That at that time ye were without Christ,
being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel,
and strangers from the covenants of promise,
having no hope, and without God in the world:
They are no longer aliens/strangers...but are now part of Israel through Christ so that they can be an heir to the promise made to Abraham by God.
Saved By Doing Things
God will not always keep His anger.
And with Him there will be pleasures forever more.
...for I am merciful, saith the LORD,
and I will not keep anger for ever.
The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever...
Psalms 16:11 (King David talking to God)
Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy,
at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
(Thou means "you" in old english)
(Thy means "your", chide means struggle/fight with)
How To Get People Saved
As always Anne, great points. Just thought I would add these:
The wise in heart will receive commandments:
but a prating fool shall fall.
The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way:
but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:
but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
Happy is the man that feareth alway:
but he that hardeneth his heart shall fall into mischief.
Can Women Know The Bible
There is neither Jew nor Greek,
there is neither bond nor free,
there is neither male nor female:
for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
And also there is a hierarchy to God's order if that is part of your question?
But I would have you know,
that the head of every man is Christ,
and the head of the woman is the man,
and the head of Christ is God.
An example of a woman having better understanding than a man:
Now the name of the man was Nabal, and the name of his wife Abigail:
and she was a woman of good understanding,
and of a beautiful countenance:
but the man was churlish and evil in his doings...
Can Salvation Be Lost?
"We then, as workers together with Him, beseech you also
that ye receive not the grace of God in vain."
The only way it could be in vain is if they lose it.
1Th 5:19"Quench not the Spirit."
If The Holy Spirit can not be quenched...why would the Bible say do not quench it? Since it is an implied "you" should not quench it...obviously it is "the person they are speaking to" doing the quenching. US
Take responsibility and stop sticking your head in the sand.
Acts15:29...if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
Divorce Second Husband
---metuschelah on 10/9/09
And David sent messengers to Ishbosheth Saul's son, saying,
Deliver me my wife Michal,
which I espoused to me for an hundred foreskins of the Philistines.
And Ishbosheth sent,
and took her from her husband,
even from Phaltiel the son of Laish.
And her husband went with her along weeping behind her to Bahurim.
Then said Abner unto him,
Go, return. And he returned.
Why Was The Sabbath Changed
Paul in the book of Hebrews describes the differences of the two Covenant Priesthoods, and the reasons why the Old Covenant was replace with the New Covenant.
The animals blood, etc., could not erase their sins, but they received credit for their obedience as they waited for The Messiah, who is Christ, to come and erase their sins completely.
The commandment spoken of in Heb 7:18 meant the Levitical laws for sanctification, and not the Ten Commandments. Hebrews describes the conversion from the old ways of justification, purification, sanctification to Christs priesthood laws for cleansing. God never voided the Ten Commandments,, it was the sacrificial system that was replaced which was given the Jews as a commandment.
Why Was The Sabbath Changed
Paul is talking to the Hebrews (Jews) who had been living under the Levitical priesthood which required killing animals, outward circumcision, etc., for their sanctification, justification, and purification.
These Jews for many generations had been told by God if they did not become outwardly circumcised and perform these sacrifices, they could not be saved because that would be breaking God's covenant with them and they would be cut off. (Gen 17:14) It required some convincing proof to stop and do something new. It required great faith for them. The Old system was to teach the severe consequences of sin.
Harry Potter Movies Sinful
Witchcraft and idolatry are undeniably sins. (Gal 5:20)
and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.
He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ,
he hath both the Father and the Son.
If there come any unto you,
and bring not this doctrine,
receive him not into your house,
neither bid him God speed:
For he that biddeth him God speed
is partaker of his evil deeds.
