Faith Without Works Dead

joseph on 9/27/19

Well said

Faith Without Works Dead
" Is arguing theology on Christianet a good work? :)"

---JS1234 on 9/24/19

That may depend upon what sort of arguing. A reasoning together, a respectful discussion, exchange of ideas with best intents is one thing. Angry, bitter, derogatory arguing is another

Absent From Our Body
StrongAxe on 8/30/19,


Your comments are, as always, a delight."

Agree. A pleasure

Tell Them To Leave
Thanks StrongAxe,

While that seems a good comeback, consider 1 pt 2:23,

"Who, when he was reviled, G3058 reviled G486 not again, when he suffered, he threatened not, but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously",

sometimes silence is an effective response.

Tell Them To Leave
People may have the rights to free speech, however, attitudes revealed may not be kind and loving.

My children were told many years ago to go back to where they came from because they are 'brown'. They were quite young at the time and I was shocked, having thought better of those who said it and of people in general.

I believed my responsibility was to encourage the children to love and forgive, as in others instances when 'wronged'.

Does God Really Exist
"For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead,"

"The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands."

How To Protect Family
"When I asked people to stop using 'Roman' why the refusal?

What you have to ask yourselves why the resistance?"

Nicole, refusals on the parts of others I cannot presume to know, at least not fully. Speculations on my part may do little good.

As for asking myself 'why', that is a question for examination of self, for if I ask it about another, (unless for understanding and their best interest) I too may have the same struggles. This applies to many things or actions in addition to resistance. Put another way, I desire to guard against judging lest I be judged.
Sometimes just letting things be is the best we can do.

How To Protect Family
Just a thought...
Nicole, I was raised Catholic, attended Catholic school through 8th grade. Dad was Catholic, Mom 'protestant'. I referred to us as RC from a young age. Many may mean no harm using that label, so why take offense? And if harm IS intended, isn't that their problem? Taking offense may be a choice, but is it beneficial?

How Much Holiness Is Enough
"I love this post from you."

Thank you Samuel. It is a pleasure to see the Lord's work in others, whether here or elsewhere.....Knowing that all comes from Him, and we can do no good thing of ourselves, so all glory and praise is due Him.

How Much Holiness Is Enough
There are times I have come across old blogs that may be of interest and the subject matter not limited by time. The headline of this one caught my eye, and thought how is holiness measured...but the title does not reflect questions posted.

This response is interesting:

"Holiness is the outworking of relationship with God through the right standing we have with Him through Jesus Christ."

The Mueller Report Trump
No evidence, or insufficient? There is a difference.

"The evidence we obtained about the President 's actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."

Explain Hebrews 10:24-25

(Nice name by the way )

"Exhort doesn't mean judging"

I never said it did.

Strong's G3870 parakale & #333,

from G3844 and G2564, to call near

My response was to the question, and not directed personally...i simply hope to be correctable, and to encourage, share as enabled...

Suffer From Depression

there is still much unknown about brain function, and more involved in depression than chemical imbalances, but neurotransmitters etc. are involved, no matter the cause...
The relatively new understandings of neuroplasticity shed some light...too much to go into here.

I'm not a fan of meds either but recognize their value in instances, and over medicating can be a big problem.

"i focus on myself more in a good way". Good for you. Best wishes.

Explain Hebrews 10:24-25
Prefaced by vs 23:

"Let us hold resolutely to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful."

What/who is this hope?

Notice the conjunction 'and' between vs 23 24.

Since. "we" are to encourage one another, I see the first part of vs 25 as something to be personally careful of rather than something to expect of others since it is not my place to judge others, lest I be judged.

Suffer From Depression
Depression does involve a chemical imbalance, however, is the imbalance a cause, result, or both? Most people experience some type during their lifetime, but some struggle with all of their life. There are varied types and severities.

Tim, A choice? I doubt people choose to get depression. Some may choose to stay in it to some degree, but that too I don't think is a clear cut conscious choice, as depression can be complex with varied aspects such as physical, chemical, emotional, psychological...

Mike, yes, being in abusive relationships can at least in part, cause or exacerbate depression. A chemical imbalance does occur. It'S sad if any religious group is abusive as you point out, and reinforce and/or exploit many with struggles

Apostles Write About Jesus
If I might add something,

The word 'publish' seen in Strong's predates the printing press, indicating meaning beyond a publication as in books as we know them today. I would think it could include earlier forms of 'writing', and other means of making something known. Pictographs as used by ancient Hebrews is an example, and their message may be passed down through time.

Super Blood Wolf Moon
i have not formed an opinion concerning this

Biblical Technology Prophesis
I'm not familiar with Sophie...any relation to i-robot?

Release The Last Penny
Nicole: "I don't have to know. God KNOWS"


I asked because when you stated

"If they are in Hell - no reason to pray for them. They are damned for ever.

If they are in Heaven - no reason to pray for them. They received their heavenly reward.

You ONLY pray for people in purgatory to reduce their time before going to Heaven.",

you emphasized the word ONLY with capitalization, to me implying you or we were not to pray for others you mentioned.
