Hummm,Below zero and huge flakes of snow falling from the sky.
God lays that snow all over the earth much like a king size blanket on earths bed.It hangs itself to everything tops of houses,trees,scrubs,fenses.Cri tter prints in the snow show small foot prints of time and place where they scampered to hide away.
Then it freezes like a ice cube as if suppended in time.God bless.
Awww ~ I am definitely home sick for snow :) and I love your new Avatar pic!!

Hey RA,
One thing that stood out for me is,“Holiness is not the way to Jesus; Jesus is the way to holiness.” Some think you have to be holy to be saved but if that were so we would not need to be saved.
Thank you for taking the time to post this.

No way for me.
Totally no way.
Meaning no personal disrespect, I find the whole concept of religion, any religion, to be silly.
Gods, witches, astrology, hexes, black cats, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, psychics, to me they are all magical stories for the appropriate age group and demographic.
I'd rather search for knowledge and wisdom. Without superstition.
I hope you find that which you are seeking :)

Knowledge and wisdom comes from experience ~ and we have to be into tomorrow to keep up with experiences, this, at least, we have learned from experience :)

To all "once saved, always saved" believers...
I work with a fellow that claims he's Christian and does, with his wife and children, attend "church," I think, twice a week. He thinks it's hilarious to tell the women we work with that he'd love to get to know them. Then, he elbows me and whispers, "...in the biblical way!" Then, he laughs.
1) Do you think such jesting is appropriate for a believer?
2) Do you think such jesting is overlooked by "God?"
After 16 years of learning and, to the best of my abilities, serving "God," I decided to denounce my faith. For 3 years, I did drugs, drank excessively, and committed fornication, or at least tried to, with just about every female I encountered. Every other word I spoke is too shameful to even repeat here. The infamous "C" word was among my favorites. I gathered quite the collection of pornography, some even where I was the star. I sold drugs. And as owner of my own, legitimate company, I offered free merchandise in exchange for sexual "favors" to any female that was willing to accept the trade, and they were many. I was even more sinful than before I had accepted "God" when I was younger. For sport, my homeboy and I would rob other "hoods," just to show them they're not the baddest on the block. And as for females, they were a better catch if they already had a man. I was beyond pitiful.
All the above is true about me. I thank "God" I didn't remain in that lifestyle. I will say that during that time, I couldn't stop studying the bible. Even then, I still enjoyed discussing the bible, too. I didn't pray, or anything else, but I did read the bible. And I'll admit that at that time, I continued studying the bible because I liked the idea of knowing more than the average person. It's been 8 years, though, since my latest transformation. Again, thank "God." But, now, I must ask...
If I had died before I repented, especially considering that I could have been killed at any given moment, would I still have been saved?

Stupid me.
This is my second attempt at posting this.
Instead of putting the image on the right in the text-field, I put the number of the available characters left.
~sigh~
We can't fool GOD ~ and if any thinks they are fooling GOD by going to Church, then they don't know GOD!

And your question has no answer, for you are here learning and not only learning, but teaching others. You might tell a million people, but if only one comprehends your meaning, you have been a huge success :)

Thanks for sharing BLL..I am sorry you had to go through that, However, the Bible does say that our faith will be tested. Peter denied our Lord 3 times and Jesus even knew he would, even told Peter that he would. The prodical son did too but the father waited for his return. Our faith will be tested For without testing, there would be no way for our faith to be refined, to be strengthened, to be proved genuine. My question is this..You admitted that you still had to study the bible but look as to WHY you had to do it..To know more than the average person??? Was your motives right? Did you love knowledge more than truly loving God?
God protected you..He knew that you would return. I dont have confidence in man but I have confidence in Jesus..
Philippians 1:6
New International Version (NIV)
6 being confident of this, that HE who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Great post GW....

You are going to be a good counselor....God Bless Friend

I don't even expect people to rebuke evenly because that almost never happens. But when they just get out of doing the same thing or would be up in arms if it was being said against their beliefs one would expect them to at least have the integrity not to weigh in. Does anybody really believe if it was being said to someone who believes OSAS that their beliefs were of the devil, that they are blinded by God, that they are a pharisee, that they don't trust in Christ and etc, etc, etc that it would be those people being attacked? Heck Andrew was called out for not being humble for saying way, way less than anything like that. It is hypocrisy at its finest

Good morning Skom, you ended your post repeating my point exactly.

<quoted text>First, after John received the dictation of our anointed Savior, to give to the seven churches, wasn't all after that a record of the vision given him? Secondly, how could John measure the temple if he wrote the book we call "Revelation" while imprisoned on Patmos? Thirdly, considering the language used in just the eleventh chapter alone, couldn't we, easily, conclude that what's written is symbolic? I've just come to the conclusion that all that's recorded after the letters to the churches are visions and should be interpreted as such.
Considering, again, that John was imprisoned on Patmos, it's also possible that John wasn't aware of the temple's destruction. Also, considering that it was prophesied, the destruction of the temple, it's possible that John knew of it's destruction, but didn't write about it. And considering the purpose of the book we call "Revelation," it's highly possible that the destruction of the earthly temple found no place in John's records.
What would be the significance of measuring, literally, "them that worship therein" with a "reed like unto a rod?"
And by the way, how art thou, my Brother?
All intersting and well thought out points.

<quoted text>I agree, that James was a pillar of the Church, even being mentioned first by Paul, recorded at Galatians 2:9. But, in this, I don't believe that any had prominence over the next. I believe that all the apostles were made bishops. Now, I must ask you...
Do you also believe that heaven and earth were created specifically for James? I ask, because according to what's written, "For by [our anointed Savior] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by [our anointed Savior] and for [our anointed Savior].
And now, we see why certain documents weren't accepted.
So Heaven and Earth were not created for man to live and then be saved ?

Sorta kills that whole "Before Adam was I" theory all to Hell.

Right..
I agree.. yet how then if He finds us..
How could He lose us?
Just have a hard time believing any will be lost.
Even if it takes one hundred life times--
I believe no one will ever perish!!
Just can't justify the lost and chemically ill and abused and
mentally challenged "perps"..not ever feeling the Love of God..
The babies starving-- I couldn't ever eat again if I believed
their live's were all for naught..
Could you?
You seem to believe in things that goes against Bible order, it's true that the Word says that God is not willing that any man should perish but have everlasting life, but the Bible also makes it clear that many will be lost to our greatest regret, the Lord himself said that only a few will make it into the heavenly gates while many will suffer ultimate destruction.

It would be wonderful if every single man, woman and child eould be saved in the end but we know from the Word that is not going to happen.

So god creates volumes of imperfect humans and then gives them free will so he can then toss them into the fire when they screw up? What did he think the result would be? Is your god an idiot or did he want sin? The basis of your religon is injustice.

I think that environments and life circumstances play a role

I do not think your interpetation of the Bible--
or mine- has anything to do with the destiny of
one's soul..
True that people have different interpretations of the same scriptures, but there are some scriptures in the Bible that are so plain to understand that it would be hard pressed to come unto two different understandings..........such as the rejection of God and his Holy Word and the consequences of doing so.
