    Who exactly are you listening to? If I might make some recommendations, you can go to Sermon Audio and listen to people like Kenny Baldwin, John Van Gelderen, Jim Van Gelderen, also David Cloud. I also highly recommend you download the App "loveworthfinding", it's a ministry that plays audio sermons from now deceased preacher, Adrian Rogers. I would like to recommend you read this free e-book, it is for people in your situation. https://www.wayoflife.org/free_ebooks/what-if-no-good-church.php In response to your question about the practice of talking about other churches and Pastors: https://www.wayoflife.org/reports/private_reproof_vs_public.html "God solemnly charges the preacher to identify false teachers, to exhort, reprove, and rebuke with all authority, to speak as the oracles of God, to earnestly contend for the faith, and even to warn about born-again compromisers (Romans 16:17; 2 Timothy 4:2; Titus 2:15; 1 Peter 4:11; Jude 3; 2 Thess. 3:6; 2 Tim. 4:10). Nowhere in Scripture are these commandments restricted in their scope. Nowhere does God say that a Bible preacher can reprove and rebuke only the members of his own church or that he can reprove and rebuke anyone who errs except an influential Christian leader. " "To reprove public sin and error publicly by the Word of God under the guidance of the Spirit of God and in His wisdom is not slander and is not gossip and is not “throwing rocks” and is not “shooting the wounded” and is not hateful and is not dishonoring to Christ." Now, there are definately internet preachers to avoid, for example one of them is Steven Anderson. You need to find sound bible teaching, ideally a solid church.

    Psalm 82 - Judges Rule As gods, On behalf of God

    Thank you for the exposition of Psalm 82. Psalm 82 is a very difficult chapter to properly interpret. I do especially appreciate your quoting Matthew 23:39 spoken from the Jews in the end times. And, God is the supreme Judge in Heaven. Micah3:1 is very appropriate in these days, in every country, in every government, and in every age.

    With the way some software works, prayer is the only thing that works. 😂

    Just wanted to praise God for finding this site one thing I love about KJVO is if it in the Bible I don't have to worry about them telling me it not in my Bible. l really hate when discussing a verse like I John 5:7 about the Blessed Trinity knowing if they have a NIV or NASB I have to more than likely argue for a majority of that verse that has been remove from their versions.

    Reminder to members here.

    Remind people to introduce themselves. The general flow of things on this forum is that false teachers either do not introduce themselves at all, or at best in a very limited way. Press them for a testimony of salvation and for a clear statement of association - which church do they go to? At the very least what group the church they go to belongs to. It is entirely reasonable to ask, but history tells us that the false teachers refuse.

    An important question to ask first is, Are you sure you were saved? How were you saved? Be sure this isn't just a phase in your religion du jour. I am not meaning to be mean or cause you to doubt, but there are many, many who believe themselves saved, that are trusting something wrong-a prayer, a baptism, a priest or pastor-how do you KNOW you're saved? My wife's journey to Christ was similar to yours: raised by a former Catholic/atheist, she went through many areas of the New Age, studied with JW's, and was eventually born again, though she started off as a Pentecostal-she left them when she saw they really didn't follow the Bible too well, relied more on emotion. But when she was saved, there was definite fruit in that the Lord began to convict her about some things: for instance, Halloween had been her favorite holiday, but once saved, she saw clearly with wickedness of it and it was one of the first things to go in her life. I see you are convicted about the smoking and that's good-don't get discouraged-years of smoking have taken a toll on your flesh, and while the spirit may be right now, you still have to deal with the sinful flesh. Keep praying, give it over to God-as one preacher I once heard said, you need to amputate it-not just back off, but get them out, away, don't buy them, remove yourself from being around people who smoke, change the habits that you associate with them. And above all, remember to deal with it as a sin, not just a bad habit. Repent of it, lay them smokes on the altar at your church and let God have them.

    When I was a little kid I thought all sins and bad habits would stop once I got saved (including wetting the bed). Alas, faith in Christ did not stop my bad habits but it did put in me the Holy Ghost who gave in my heart the desire to stop them. Over time I got over some (including the one above!) but I am still working on many. Faith in Christ revived your spirit and saved your soul from Hell but does not automatically remove all the sin and bad habits from your flesh. For the things flesh related they will need to be washed though meditating and practicing the word of God. Your flesh will always be corrupt until you receive your glorified bod. Until then all you can do is keep it under control. You can't save it. Romans 7:14-25: 14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 but I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
