Your remarks are a "no brainer" It is a matter of spiritual fact that the war in Heaven, Lucifer, who was the closest to GOD, tried to overthrow him and was relegated to the lowest of the worlds, the material, his footstool, in which we live and breathe, for a short time. The ultimate Heaven and Hell thing was made in the first Nice convention. GOD has everything under control. He does not give you more than you can handle and if you do manage to transcend the "Peter Principle" for the time, you will be relegated back to your level. Only beware, GOD is not mocked and woe be it to the preacher who games on his flock, there is a special place in Hell for them. Watch the TV. See the show, The delusional preachers out for material gain will have theirs, If you are indeed the child of the LIVING GOD, He will give you as your needs be, maybe not what you want, but what you can safely handle, Just don't let the praying knees get weak, we are all sinners, for none has not sinned, Repent while the time is at hand, do not think you can live a demonic life and then draw your final breath and finally say,"I believe in you." Factually speaking, you had lived your whole life in sin and then in the last moment look to him. Look to the God you had worshiped all the years you were as you were. The only safe bet is JESUS< the son, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. I and my colleagues know if you are saved within the first words out of your mouth, even if you spout religiosity. JESUS SAVES.
Amen <3

But It is SAD to see Christians turn against each other....Like I said last night
we are all ENTITLED TO GIVE OUR OPINION ON SCRIPTURE INTERPRETATION.....We all process the scriptures through our "understanding" of what it says. I agree with Drew...We must stay open and NOT Closed otherwise we never mature Spiritually...And we need to Grow in the Lord....
I agree. We are not each other's enemies just because we have diff interpretations. But once people start throwing out words like blind and of the devil or don't trust in Christ then things just escalate. I wish people could see that as what it is and that is pride. I am not going to sugar-coat that because someone can be confident in their beliefs without insulting or trashing another's so that excuse to me doesn't fly. And until anyone can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that their beliefs based on faith is 100% right across the board (good luck with that for anyone) people need to stop claiming a monopoly on the truth. And I grow tired of people saying they could be wrong because it sounds humble and then go on to trash anyone who believes different.

If Jesus was in the room during these biblical debates I wonder how much different people would act. Then they can consider if they really aren't meaning to be arrogant or insulting. People can fool others. Heck they may even be able to fool themselves at times. But deep down they know and nobody is fooling God

I can argue with someone over what time it is so I claim no higher moral ground. But for believers to attack other believers over beliefs based on the same Bible makes no sense to me. But people are only going to take being told they are of the devil so often before swinging back. I have no idea in the last month who even started going there first but people need to stop going there all together IMO. Only God knows the heart.

Also Paul wrote his letters in the First Century when women were considered a step above slaves. Jesus Loved Women....He had women followeing him (Mary Magdalene Joanna, and Susanna,)And many women opened their homes in the First Century to set up "churches"
Trust me my friend I know. I alluded a little bit to the sign of the times and said I wouldn't get into the teachings of Jesus as far as this point went but I will just say I am sure you and I are in agreement on this. But you gotta admit, it at minimum leaves room to make it not so black and white depending on how someone else may interpret and apply them. Trust me, that doesn't sit well with me but I can't honestly say I don't see the dilemma it could create. IMO anyway.

Any church that teaches the treatment of women in the way Lawest has shown in here time and time again is nothing but a church that is being guided by satan. And like you I will not sit back, nor support, nor condone that. It needs to be exposed like it is being exposed in here tonight.
To me (and I'm sure I'm not alone) what Lawest is doing is far worse than any non-believer that comes in here bashing Christianity. Because Lawest is doing what he is doing (which is nothing but satan's work) while claiming it's God's work.
It's about the most sickening thing I've seen done in here. Thankfully it's being exposed for all to see and he's being called out for it like he should be.
God bless you for taking the stand that you have Le_le!!!

Depends on the girl..LOL

I am not a flowers on the first date kind of guy though. In fact I feel like a jackass even holding them as I have yet to figure out a cool way to walk up with them. But after a few good dates I may send some to her work. Nothing a girl likes more then to get flowers AND be able to show it off to her friends without looking like its intentional. Plus then I already have people in the office helping me out when I pick her up for lunch or something like that.

I agree....The shift comes when someone else starts calling the other person "deluded" or influenced by Satan" or worse. Then the arguments start.....I also agree it is PRIDE

Thats when we need to take our FOCUS off ourselves and Put it on GOD.....

<quoted text>
How OLD is The Gospel of Grace???
Amazing Grace" is a Christian hymn with words written by the English poet and clergyman John Newton (17251807), published in 1779. Containing a message that forgiveness and redemption are possible regardless of sins committed and that the soul can be delivered from despair through the mercy of God, "Amazing Grace" is one of the most recognizable songs in the English-speaking world.
Newton wrote the words from personal experience. He grew up without any particular religious conviction, but his life's path was formed by a variety of twists and coincidences that were often put into motion by his recalcitrant insubordination. He was pressed into the Royal Navy, and after leaving the service became involved in the Atlantic slave trade. In 1748, a violent storm battered his vessel so severely that he called out to God for mercy, a moment that marked his spiritual conversion. However, he continued his slave trading career until 1754 or 1755, when he ended his seafaring altogether and began studying Christian theology.
I bet you sing that song in your church without the slighest notion of its meaning..SAD..Paul started this Gospel Of Grace that was given to him by God/Jesus Himself. Maybe you should have a women preaching in your church. You are swinging from your preachers tailcoat and hanging on to a man-made doctrine. How long are you going to take his word over Gods? That was meant to be mean..If I didnt care, I wouldnt stay here and take your abuse. I will stay on the narrow path regardless though. Peace and GRACE to you religious man
For you sweet lady, keep on keeping on, God Bless You <3

"Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)"

Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures

[2x]
My chains are gone
I've been set free
My God, my Savior has ransomed me
And like a flood His mercy rains
Unending love, Amazing grace

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, Who called me here below
Will be forever mine
Will be forever mine
You are forever mine

What Drew's post brought to my mind was working on our cars with my father. I am glad my father didn't just buy us stuff. When I worked on a project with my dad, the result meant far more than anything one could buy.
That is just me though. You are free to have the chocolates, I'll take the shovel and the map. <smile>
I would tell you the first thing you should look for with that map and where but considering you are probably one of the very few that would find it funny and I am too tired to t-mail I think I will just stop here! LOL

No I get his point and agreed. Was just playing around

Gotta get some zzz's, I think I am starting hallucinate I am so tired. Plus this way I can get a solid 4.5 hours of sleep in. Sigh...stupid vacation went by waaay too quick. At least it is a short week and no Saturday.

Edit:

Forgot to note

Ecclesiastes is Solomon and Timothy is written by Paul. I think I mistakenly said I found a disturbing verse by Paul about only men walking upright in a post before actually quoted the two scriptures.

But I would be interested on what others thought about them. I could have predicted Epi would be fine with talking about it and a few others I could see as well. But I have always found it interesting we can hammer each other over differences but nobody ever seems to want to get into anything about the Bible that may be a little uncomfortable. Or even not as mainstream. Or controversial. Or etc.

I am not threatened or challenged by anyone who wants to come in and try to bash us or the Bible for it or use it as ammo. And I don't care if nobody else agrees with me on anything I believe. I know a decent amount of people feel the same. We should be able to talk about these kinds of things with each other as they exist and we have to deal with them

Definitely going to bed now as it is so far past when I should have called it a night. But would love nothing more than to see people discuss their feelings on those verses or to provide others that may help in the understanding or even give opinions on their application. There is no reason why believers should internalize the more difficult verses to work out when we have each other to bounce things off of and learn from.

Anyway, just some food for thought

And you clearly have shown that you don't know God's Word. Because God's Word clearly talks about women preaching.
Acts 2:17.
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons AND YOUR DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
There it is for all to see Lawest.
Daughters (women) shall prophesy.
Prophesy.
A message of divine truth revealing God's will.
The act of uttering such a message.
Women preaching "a message of divine truth revealing God's will."
The act of women uttering (which is speaking) such a message.
Right there it is in the book of Acts in God's Word Lawest. Chapter 2 verse 17.
Now tell us all again how you are "only expressing HIS Word and his Word only".
And how women aren't to preach.
Because in the book of Acts it clearly says they can and will preach.
_______
***Watch the spinning and twisting begin. Either that or Lawest will act like it's not there in God's Word for all to see and he'll simply ignore it and avoid it.***
Wrong Apples, your interpretation fails, prophesying means telling of a future event before it happens, NOT PREACHING, learn the difference, preaching is expounding the WORD, opening up scripture and explaining it and breaking it down with the spirit and opening it up to everyone's understanding to those who can receive it by the spirit ( which obviously is not you and several others ).

You don't have the gift of rightly dividing the scriptures, Prophesy is a gift of the spirit and the ability to preach comes when God choses someone to deliver the gospel message by putting his ( God's ) Words in his chosens mouth.

Blessings.
