Earthiness?? oy!lol! I like how you use it. Well this is very important distinction how a Christian should view the "World" and how they should view the "Earth"
Yeshua and his Disciple made it clear how His followers should deal with the world"
John 15:19 If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
1st John 2:15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. Psalm 57:11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be over all the earth!
So you see, Christians have to be careful how they interact with the world and the things of the world. But the Earth, is the Glory of YHWH. And we can enjoy this earth as much or even more than any atheist or any unbeliever.
There is a lot the Christian can do to enjoy themselves on Earth. I hear from people sometime how Christian life boring..I no know what they talking about. There is hundreds of ways a Christian can enjoy they existence in Jesus Christ while they on this earth without engaging in sin.
Ja, I am very aware of,'in the world but not of it'! As for boring? Wow... I would hate to think what exciting is! lol
My experience on this earth has been how much my life has moved among many folk from all walks, and ja, I learned there were many religions with many believers, plus folk who didn't join any nor believe in God. But my lot has always been to do the will of my Father in heaven, so nothing phased me, and that is what annoyed any. Sure, I was accustomed to being cast out for my beliefs - very much a Jesus Follower - named Christianity at some point in time. There is not an interrogation I have not been put through long before this thread, but have never seen so much hatred for 'religion' out of a supposed to be Christian country. Nor have I seen so much discord or personal attacks... even by Christian egos.
Personally I am at peace with 'the bride' within all this turmoil, regardless of how cults have sprung up to try and reduce even that to an insult, and will stand by what is left of this. For these words have summed up my life...
“But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.” Revelation 12:16-17
But the victory of overcoming is this...
"Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready." Revelation 19:7
… and the end result...
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” The Spirit and the bride say,“Come.” And let the one who hears say,“Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost. Revelation 22:16-17
All Jesus said was “Follow me”... and I did. I have no regrets about that. In short, the earth to me has been kind, and I love it as a planet, but it has been people - Christian included - who have not been.

iyai!...no give up europe yet lol. I believe there will be a revival and awakening to Jesus Christ in europe.
Because europeans starting to get scared of Islam and they afraid that Islam out to run over europe. So many of them starting to wake up and see that if they don't stand for something, they going to get run over.
And the only force in the world that can stand up to Islam, is Christianity.
Islam will beat and scare the crap out of atheists because they know atheists scared to die. But they know many Christians won't run. They know there are many Christians that will stand up to them.
So keep you eye on europe. You may be surprised what happen on that continent in the next 5yrs or so.
Fear not my friend, time will tell all... was sharing my thoughts on the old Gothic buildings!
My experience has been very different with the Islamic community. They do not have to be Muslim to be fanatic but can be Christian as well. Enemies are a lot like one another in reality, and only beliefs differ. I was appalled to learn of what even the Spanish did in the name of Christianity, and as history repeats itself over and over, it is only now, today that concerns me. History is exactly that, and what is done - right or wrong - is done. To not move forward is a waste of time and energy. However mankind interprets truth, eventually that which is beginning and end - Alpha and Omega - must culminate in what it was intended to be.
And Ja... will as I always do, keep watch! Europe has much to answer for when it comes to what is now called the new world since those dark days!

If people can't see that things have got out of control, due to the interference of man(kind) then they are deluding themselves. We are killing off everything ~ and there is no plan to stop. In fact, there are more plans to kill more things and in a much more hurried time.
We should be grateful to you Christians for repeatedly reminding us about what almost nobody else sees - the abject failure that mankind is, the cesspool that the world has become under his direction since he tamed fire and invented the wheel, and the hopelessness of man ever doing any better. Man is useless,and without such extreme Christian pessimism, nihilism and misanthropy, we might forget that, or even mistakenly view the world with hope.

But Jesus knows better. There is no hope for the world or mankind except for those that kneel before him and beg him not to torture us for eternity.

Thank you for repeatedly straightening us out.

If you are offended with Prayer....Please "scroll" on by

~A Fourth fo July Prayer~
We lift up our hearts, O God, on this day of celebration
in gratitude for the gift of being Americans.

We rejoice with all those who share
in the great dream of freedom and dignity for all.

With flags and feasting, with family and friends,
we salute those who have sacrificed that we might have the opportunity to bring to fulfillment our many God-given gifts.

As we deny all prejudice a place in our hearts,
may we also clearly declare our intention to work for the time when all people, regardless of race, religion or sex, will be granted equal dignity and worth.

Come, O gracious God,
who led your children Israel from slavery, keep us free from all that might hold us in bondage.

Bless our country and join our simple celebration
that we may praise you, our Source of freedom, the One in whom we place our trust.

Be with America Dear Lord!!

<quoted text>And we can thank GOD that stupid man made laws are being changed ~ although there are some simply amazing things go on in law, as we all know. The big old $ sign just smacks you in the face when you tackle that old topic.
We just hate the fact that JESUS was killed ~ but love the fact that JESUS knowingly came down here, knowing HIS fate, and holding the hand of our HEAVENLY FATHER closely to HIS Heart during the short years of HIS life.
I just love JESUS ~(haha, just had a trip down memory lane to another forum where someone wrote they had JESUS everywhere.... might try and dig it up from the old days and bring it forward) and don't really care what others think about HIM. If they can't see HIM for what HE is and was, then they need to open their eyes. They won't shut mine :)
That makes two of us 4 Jesus! God Bless you Serah... you need a ~~ HUG~~(((*()*) xxx

Encouraging words....

The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.

Loving and caring is the key to life, and its influences are those that move the world.
A caring child contest was won by a 4-year old little boy. His next-door neighbor was an ederly gentleman, who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his Mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor man, the little boy said " Nothing, I just sat on his lap and helped him cry".
.. you won't find your spiritual self at a football game or the throngs of people in Times Square. Listen to the trees grow, a puppy chase a ball or the clouds move across the sky ..

.. in this silence, this aloneness, you begin to understand words, the God within ..

.. while reading your post, my eyes misted. Thank you ..

Thought for the Day
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Yeah, at least 250 young people will die because of fireworks(explosives).

The lucky ones will only get their fingers blown off. Some will lose an eye. Some puppies will be forever traumatized.

Nobody cares what the day means.

"Just" the Christian faith? How many faiths do you think could concern him the most?

And yes, of course it is Christianity. It is for me as well. Can you guess why it's Christianity and not say Jainism, Druidism, Caodaism or Bahá'í?
