Visited A Pagan Witches Blog
  
Laura,
Perhaps a person or two who goes to the witch/wiccan sites searching for some truth, might hear and consider what you say.

But regulars on these sites have already decided against the God of the Bible. They will not be likely to listen to the truth they have purposefully rejected. Nor will they be likely to let you speak unopposed.

Of course, if God is calling you to do this, you must do it. But I, in now way, see this as a field ripe for the harvest.


Is There An Aura Around You
  
Poopsie--
Do you think nobody ever took John to task before you came here?

John likes to insult people. You will not change him by trying to out-do him at name-calling.


Obama Israel 1967 Borders
  
Nurse Robert--//The entire gist of his speech was that Israel needed to give up land for the Palestinians.//

No disagreement here.
And they have.
But go back to the 1967 borders and THEN give up land? No way.


Why Do People Go To Church
  
//According to Matthew 25, at the Last Judgement, we will not be quizzed on our Biblical understanding.//

Very true. We also will not be quizzed on whether our church was the "first" (which doesn't necessariliy mean "true") or the second or the last... or even whether we attended church at all. God looks on the heart.


Did Peter Forgive Himself
  
More excellent way-- Scripture clearly shows Peter's remorse at his denial of Jesus.

Mar 14:72 the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

But how does scripture show that Peter gained followers by using fear and glorified himself so that others wanted his "shadow to fall upon them"?
The response of the people is clear from scripture, but nothing indicates Peter encouraged this.


End Times Due To Japan
  
Kathr4453 -- The topic was Christian suffering...why would the mention of non-Christians suffering, be so irrelevant. What games do you think I'm trying to play? And why would I want to play games? Why are you so suspicious? You say you accepted my apology. If so, why do you keep bringing the matter up?


U.S. Launching Peace Missiles
  
Good grief, Allen, did you ever consider, even once, the number of lives that would have been lost if we HADN'T intervened? You think the casualties you mentioned were ALL caused by the United States? The Korean War was also fought by Koreans, The Vietnam conflict by, Vietnamese...both of which asked us to assist! Your figures on Iraq come from Al Jazeera and are wildly inflated. Sadaam had already killed a couple million and performed unspeakable acts torture upon even more! (i.e. cutting out tongues and raping women before their children and husbands). Do you think all of that would have STOPPED if we didn't intervene? Iraq has been liberated to form their own government. Saddam got what he deserved. Nobody knows what will happen in Libya.


Saved Recognize The AntiChrist
  
Sorry, Mima, for misreading your post. I responded because it didn't sound like you! I missed Watchman's post and saw no quotation marks.


Biblical To Kill Animals
  
jerry6593-- Thanks for your tolerance to hunters. As I said, I don't hunt myself.

Those who eat meat, who are interested in health, should recognize that game is generally very lean. It has had absolutely no antibiotics injected OR hormones. Nor has it been stressed by living under crowded and artificial conditions.


Late Rapture Without No Food
  
Mat 6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mat 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Mat 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.


Baptism Needed For Salvation
  
James L.-- Baptism does indeed bring about a clear conscience/temporal forgiveness. But it is not the only way of attaining this...or else we would likely need repeated Baptisms.

And baptism does nothing to confer salvation. It merely symbolizes what salvation has accomplished.

The salvation Army does not attempt to be everything a church is. Most members of the Salvation Army have been baptized at some time, somewhere.But one does not need to be baptized to belong.



What Is God's Mercy
  
1st Cliff--. You keep trying to measure God's "justice" by your own. And who says the punishment in our courts always "fits" the crime? What about drug dealers who are free to endanger the lives of our youth, while others transporting drugs a single time gets decades in jail?

Would it be "just" if God allowed everyone the rewards of Heaven no matter their deeds or sense of conscience? Do you or anyone "deserve" Heaven? How do you know? By sending Jesus to pay the penalty for our sins, God has made it possible to have what none of us "deserve"... a relationship with Him.

To know what He has done for us and yet reject the Gift...does God not have right to reject such a one?


Once Saved Live Wild
  
Ruben -- Yes, But a father doesn't love his children because they are perfect. He loves them because they are his children. And because he loves them, He disciplines them if they disobey.

Hbr 12:7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons, for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? Hbr. 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. The prodigal son knew who his father was.. and to his father he returned. David, after he sinned, returned to the Father. Peter, when he sinned returned to the Savior. They knew where they belonged.


Bible Mentions Missing Books
  
CraigA--//Sister, don't you think the responsibility lies upon each of us as children of God to know WHY these books were removed rather than just accepting it as "Gods will" because its what the pastor teaches

No. I don't think of them as "removed" but rather as "not accepted". And it's not just MY pastor who says so!

Those who decided what books comprised the canon made deliberate, thoughtful, prayerful, choices. Am I so learned and holy that I should repeat their work? Nor do I have time.
Extrabiblical literature is often interesting, but any I've read lacks real Power. The Bible has served us well. I believe the Bible is sufficient for salvation and godliness.


Who's The Best Blogger
  
Why this question? I don't even vote on "helpful bloggers"! This is not a contest. We have enough personal animosity expressed already....it's embarrassing for a Christian site.We don't need a blog to compare one poster with one another.


Evolution Of The Species
  
Warwick- We agree! "Macro evolution" and natural selection are entirely different. There is no evidence for Macro-evolution.
Pure-breds have less genetic variety but still have as many gene pairs as others of their species. AND every gene carries some information. There are no blanks.
Do the genes for short legs contain less "information" than those for long legs? Does a dominent gene contain more information than a recessive one? Do Western Antarctic terns have less genetic information than eastern ones? (or vice versa)? No. it's just different information.

That's what I mean when I say no genetic information is "lost". An actual "loss" of information COULD mean a new species.


Can I Commit Adultry
  
Your situation is common. Those who have the most difficult time are those who are still young and perhaps not married for long... such as when a serviceman comes home with paralysis or a brain injury and his young wife views all her hopes for the future as dashed.

You, on the other hand have had a long and apparently healthy marriage. Your husband needs you NOW more than ever, as a advocate for him in his world... now full of strangers.
Don't let your attention be distracted from this final loving responsibility. If you couldn't be faithful those last few years, most would understand.
But if you are (or were) your conscience will be clear. Begin a new life in peace knowing you have acted righteously before God.


How To Become Saved
  
Leslie--
How do you know that "most, if not all" the people responding to these blogs are not saved?


What's Up December 2010
  
John---8 out of 10 oncologists do not have cancer.!

And Johns Hopkins, Sloan Kettering still does not recommend "natural" cures in place of chemo (where chemo is normally the standard). They are no doubt studying many things. BUT just look at their web sites. Read for yourself the material they put out for cancer patients!

They NEVER say that "nearly ALL Cancer are very curable naturally" I don't know where you got that, but it wasn't from Sloan Kettering.
