Theology Forum / Re: The greatest unused power in the world today....
« Last post by grace on Today at 07:53:53 PM »
Sorry I didnt mean cessationalists I mean continualists.  My question is for you Grace. I want to know if this is all common belief  like some denomination or if its all your own ideas?
I was brought up Baptist. I am now in a Baptist church that believes in the manifestation of the Holy Spirit.

How do you gather this is my own ideas? Have I not backed up everything with scriptures?

Christian Singles Forum / Re: Daughter wants to date an unbeliever

I have to agree with you, its not a good idea at all to date a non believer. iF you are not going to marry a non believer then why date one? We have 5 children between us and one of them was dating a non believer, they are now thankfully with a believer, and we did pray that would be the case and that any relationship that wasnt of God wouldnt last. The previous partner was a nice enough person, but as most who arent believers, they were pressuring them to have sex after a short time, and couldnt understand why they had to wait.  Thats the norm today.
We know a lady who met a non believer, and she liked him but was determined to just remain friends, and not long after that he did convert, and they eventually married, but the danger there is that the other partner will pretend a conversion or force it to be with their boyfriend/girlfriend and its not genuine and doesnt last.  My SIL had a relationship with a man for ages, but he never did become a believer and she had the heartbreaking decision to have to decide whether to leave or go, and she bravely did leave him. 

I have 2 close friends who have non Christian husbands and its a very hard situation for them. 

However she is an adult and away at college, and has to make her own decisions. You can advise and pray for her, but ultimately its her who needs to hear God and follow him for herself. Pray that any relationship that isnt of him will not last.

BTW, I do not personally disregard Trump supporters in the least..

So, when you refer to Trump supporters as "knuckle-draggers" that's not talking down to us? Those are words of respect in your personal dictionary? I won't even get into the other disparaging comments you've made - and there are a lot of them.   rofl

Oh, brother. I don't come to this forum to be instructed by someone who refers to me as a knuckle-dragger.  rofl

Seriously? You would go back to a business where the owner spewed vulgarity and treated you with total disregard? Wow!





I am back here , am I not. And I can assure you that many here have totally disregarded what I have said, many times just short of a vulgarity.

Seriously, would I back to an actual business that did that. NO, I would not.

But then I have not heard any of the candidates talking vulgarity in the course of their actual business dealings. That seems to be reserved for the name callings on the campaign trail. Trump is not exclusive to that.

If you listen to the interviews of Trump .... they are not the boisterous talkings that he uses on the campaign trail they are the talkings of a very rational business man.

Catholic Forum / Re: Salvation by Works?
« Last post by kensington on Today at 06:04:11 PM »
Even Catholics do not know.  I've done many searches and checked sources.  They all say the same thing.  Everything from ... "I don't know" to "as long as it takes"... or "It ends at judgment" or "Only God knows". 

The reality is that Purgatory is a made up place by man.  God needs  no place or state to purify our souls.  That is what He paid for at Calvary. 

IF... God was going to make a place to purify our souls, we would not need the cross.  Jesus would not have had to die. 

And the answers to the "time" question are as silly as the idea of Purgatory.  IF God had needed to create such a thing because Jesus dying on the cross was not enough.  He would have said so.  He didn't.  God addresses time with man.  "It is given once to man and then, the judgment." (your life is time)..  He created Hell.. it is for eternity. (time) And Heaven, for eternity (time) What God said, is that He loved us so much He sent His Son to die for our sins, to pay for us and that Jesus is enough. He has no need to keep us guessing about where we will be for how long.

"Do you not know For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body." I Cor. 6:20

"You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men." I Cor. 7:23

"Jesus himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but now have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls" (1Peter 2:24-25).

"Be shepherds of the church of God which he bought with his own blood" (Acts 20:28)
Ephesians 1:13-14New American Standard Bible (NASB)

13 In [a]Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation—having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is [d]given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.

We are bought, paid for and redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb.
