Topix

hello from Top Mod 5 :)

These folks who are not content really should find a well moderated site that better suits their needs. The internet is HUGE. We **cannot** change others, but we change ourselves.  (Jan 30, 2016 | post #14599)

How can we tell if a Person is a Christian?

If a person professes Christ and follows the above scripture, they are trying to be an obedient Christian. IMO, you should be able to "see" a Christian being joyfully obedient to Christ born of love. Our absolute best testimony for Christ is seen in our loving, joyful obedience. God bless you and yours.  (Dec 26, 2015 | post #65)

Yes, He absolutely loves them as much as us. When I first came to Topix I tried to help the uncivil see the massive benefits of posting with civility. Anything can be discussed between any group if all participants choose to speak with respect. An agreement may never be reached, but much can learned from each other so long as the communication lines are open. However, many here absolutely will not be civil or respectful. Consequently, they loose accounts and their posts are deleted. That does not stop them, they get proxies and new accounts because they have such pain in their hearts that has transformed into anger, and now they need an outlet to allow it flow out. Topix is a very good place for this, and the pain must have an outlet or irreversible damage may be done (suicide, mass shootings, etc). I will post to anyone who posts back to me civilly regardless of their beliefs. I will no longer post to or read posts from anyone who chooses smut over civility regardless of their beliefs. My spirit began to suffer and their anger/pain began to spread to me as anger/pain tends to do. BTW, God does not condemn or pass judgement on the vast majority of folks until they die. I do not condemn anyone as I have not read anywhere that God needs my help in judging others. He loves us too, and does not want us to routinely and intentionally subject ourselves to the filth found in this world. When they choose to post with civility, then I will correspond with them. I need not correspond directly with those who choose filth. If they read my posts, they can see the great joy, peace and love I have in this world and that attribute that to Christ. When they become interested in releasing their pain and anger and seeking what I have, I will be thrilled to speak with them. Until then, I will pray for them while not soiling my mind and my spirit with their posts. If you can continually read smut while not sullying your spirit, please feel free to do so. I did it for as long as I could. I recommend caution as filth spills over and can taint all it touches. God bless you and yours.  (Nov 25, 2015 | post #16629)

I cope with the uncivilized by just scrolling past those who routinely choose filth as their means of communication. Once I identify a person with a penchant for this behaviour, I no longer subject myself to their posts. On occasion, I inadvertently read their smut by reading a quote contained in a post from someone else, but scrolling past all their original posts definitely reduces my exposure. Romans 12:1-2 12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. One cannot be transformed by the renewing of our minds if we are continually subjecting ourselves to debauchery. God bless you and yours.  (Nov 24, 2015 | post #16627)

Yea, where do people get the idea that God needs us to defend Him? Really? He has always been quite capable of taking care of Himself and His business from the way I read things. Puny, fallible, sinful humans "defending " The Almighty God.....uhuh. He wants us to get ourselves right with Him, not quarrel and bicker on His behalf. If we choose to love/obey (follow) Christ, He will be a mediator on our behalf. If we do not love/obey (follow) Him, then we are on our own come our judgement day. God bless you and yours. ****************** ****************** **************** 2 Timothy 2:14-15 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV) 14 Of these things put them in remembrance, and [c]protest before the Lord, that they strive not about words, which is to no profit, but to the perverting of the hearers. 15 [d]Study to show thyself approved unto God a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, dividing the word of truth [e]aright.

I* see the Gospel as a beautiful, and loving message full of hope and awe. I hope everyone can someday see what I see in it. God Bless you and yours.  (Nov 23, 2015 | post #16603)

Still quoting the old covenant and attempting to save your own soul? This passage was relevant before Christ's sacrifice. Now we no longer can save our own soul, thus making that passage moot. Christ gives us the new option. We must believe in Christ as our Saviour, repent of our sin, love Christ and obey Christ and then He saves our souls. God bless you and yours.  (Nov 22, 2015 | post #16564)

All the Gospels are about avoiding punishment and our being rehabilitated through faith, acceptance and obedience to Christ. God bless you and yours.  (Oct 23, 2015 | post #1235)

Lovie's Lies About the Bible

QUOTE who="Sheilaa "]This banned poster called Dollarbill has harassed me on over 50 + occasions in the last few hours. I request that he be given an immediate warning to leave me alone[/QUOTE] If you both use a little self-control and stop reading each others posts and stop posting to each other BOTH your problems would be solved. Instead, you are choosing to have a relationship with each other. I have only read maybe a dozen of your posts to each other, but I am sure the rests are just repeats of those dozen. Until you ignore each other, I would presume you are both enjoying the attention you are both getting and giving each other. Watching you too is much like watching the pre-mating rituals of 3rd or 4th graders. God bless you both and may you each get out the relationship you have willfully chosen with each other what you each need/want.  (Oct 19, 2015 | post #101)

They follow you around, and you seem to follow them around. They speak to you and you to them. I rarely, if ever, see them speak to LIMG or her to them. Obviously, they cheer you on, not her. Clearly you relish the attention as you encourage it at every opportunity. Good luck with that relationship. God bless you and yours.  (Oct 17, 2015 | post #12922)

Lovie's Lies About the Bible

I stated what I meant quite clearly and I said what I meant. I do not mince words, and I am almost always very clear in my statements. There is no need for you to state IOW, most especially since you have never been right when doing so. God bless you and yours.  (Oct 17, 2015 | post #63)

Question for Christians?

I do not know why it "should" be required. I simply know to be a Christian requires faith. I would not imagine faith would be needed after death. I have evidence in my life of God, but I do not have verifiable evidence. The evidence I have is just anecdotal and not repeatable. Some probably would dismiss my experiences by stating they were my imagination, coincidence, or I am just crazy. It is good enough evidence for me, but I do not expect it to make a bit of difference to anyone else :D.  (Oct 12, 2015 | post #47)

Question for Christians?

You can pray to God for strength in this regard; however, whether you remain a virgin or not is entirely up to you (baring rape). Whether you fall in love or not is may not be entirely up to you, but whether you act on that love or not is again entirely up to you. Decide what you want from life, have valid reasons for those choices, then stick to those choices. God bless you and yours.  (Oct 12, 2015 | post #43)
