Thank you Blairsville Devil. I'm sorry, but I don't know the god you are talking about. She sounds bad to me, too. I can assure you Jesus Christ isn't like the god you described.This is especially for Hill Will d other bible thumpers.You know who you are.Thereare mor than 7illion people on this planet.About 2 billion of them are christian.According to the christians they are going to heaven when they die.The other 5 billion are going to hell.according to John 3:16 their creator this god loved the world that he sent his son to die for the sins that he created.he didn't love the people he createde because he killed them,nearly all.I wouldn't call this god a loving god but a murdering monster.He ,along with his good buddy the devil is going to kill the other 5 billion because they have enough intelligence to believe that he doesn't exist.I don't believe in any of the thousands of god that have existed ,through history,but Christians do.You people accept a god that never was and claim to love a murderer.Even though he never existed.You condone his evil acts,that in my opinion makes you no better than your immaginary god.Hill,anyone with a little knowledge of history should know how the christians have effected the advancement of mankind.You can google and learn.I don't know more simple way to express my opposition to a belief in any god than to say that you believers can have him because I consider myself to have higher moral principles.
The Intentional Christian
OVERVIEW: This is a series of four messages dealing with Christian maturity. So many Christians are casual about their faith. In order to please God, a believer must be intentional about their faith. The Intentional Christian must be decisive, live a life of integrity, exercise their gifts and access Gods power. This series of messages explores the life of Paul, Joseph, Barnabas and Elijah to examine these qualities.
SERMON #1. Intention Christians Are Decisive
TEXT: Philippians 3:10-14 (Paul)
OVERVIEW: The intention Christian is a person determined to know God better and move away from mediocrity. Carnal Christians live casual lives; spiritual Christians are determined to always move to the next level. You must be decisive are you will live by default. Being decisive requires intentionality.
OUTLINE: Paul was an intentional Christian and we can learn from his example.(1) Intentional Christians live by a definite decision.(3:12) I love the Amplified translation:Jesus, the Messiah, has laid hold of me and made me His own. Intentional Christians make the clear decision that Jesus is the best person to master their life. Paul made that decision.
(2) Intentional Christians live by a determined priority.(3:13)This one thing I do. You must be intentional about living by Gods priorities.
(3) Intentional Christians are not deterred by the past.(3:13)forgetting those things which are behind If you dont learn to deal with your past, it will control your future.
