  1. Who here said that Jesus told his disciples that it is okay to kill someone. ? I must have missed a post?

  2. Let me fact check this. It was your name calling, false accusations towards me, and repeatedly breaking board rules that got you in trouble. If it was on what you believe, you would not be here. I know this burst the "persecution" bubble, but looking back on the warning logs, your statement is false and would not hold up in court. I disagree with a few things with our Mods and some regular members, but we get along fine as we are here to uplift God, not ourselves. In fact Jesus spent quite a bit of time rebuking the "religious" crowd.

    Wilt thou be made whole?

    Greetings, all, Thank you for your kind attention and care and precious time. Why do you think Jesus Christ asks us whether we would like to be made whole? It may be simply because we are not looking at Him and our attention is on other things, such as the movement of the water upon the pool! To make myself more clear, if you want, when the Lord asks the man with infirmity lying there beside the pool, which was supposed to heal the sick when it was troubled, He asked him not waiting for a reply, not seeking an answer, but He wanted the poor chap to look up at Him and be saved. We, likewise, need to keep our attention and sight at Jesus, if we want to be saved, simple. Bless your hearts, Totoo

  5. "James 4:4 - Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." =============================================================== God's Word says not to widen your horizons so far as to accept sinfulness , nor to harm nor to bring harm to others, nor to study the ways and the idolatry of the pagans, and so on. (forgot the source of the comment) =============================================================== biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1 John 2:15&version=KJV 1 John 2:15. King James Version Update. 15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.

If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Beware of Antichrists 18Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

  6. Wonderful ! Too many others in multitudes, in many places, and in small groups or one by one, were (apparently) converted , they thought and still continue to think, by false gospels and false messages and false teachers. Continue always seeking God's Kingdom and His Righteousness in harmony with all of His Word, and never stop seeking Truth (Jesus), and trust our Father in heaven to Accomplish everything as written concerning Salvation. Yes, do what Jesus says to His disciples > trust the Father in heaven always, as Jesus taught His disciples , confirmed by His Word as Revealed by the Father.

    Wilt thou be made whole?

    Amen! Our Lord GOD said by the prophet Isaiah: 22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.Is.45:22 Peter Apostle, inspired by the Holy Spirit, preached: Acts 3:v.18 to 21 and 4:v.12 18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he hath so fulfilled. 19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 20 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: 21 Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. Acts 4:v.12 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other NAME under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Aleluia!!!

    Philippians 3:v.20-21 20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. Aleluia!!!

  11. I seen a great movie one time where Christian men got together to pray with their Bible before going out to battle. This doesn’t count right. It was just a movie, you are confusing our great bravery of our bothers and sisters in Christ, those that went to war for our freedom. By then carrying their weapons you are calling them killers, you go to Afghanistan and minister to them having nothing to defend yourself with. Let me know how it works for you.

  15. Couldn't see where else to put this, so put it here... I do love this text from Philippians, ch. 4, v. 8: 'Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.'

  18. I honesty said I did not understand what you where asking and you take that as avoiding a question and call it "Sin sinfulness"? I have a very hard time following your grammatical structure in your sentences to fully understand what in the world you are asking. That's why I asked what you where saying. Then why you calling out people for not answering?

  19. Can someone explain to me what in the world we now talking about in this thread? Do folks on here really don't know what the Bible says about murder? Are these rhetorical questions, questions where they don't know the answer, or are they patsy questions?

  20. If someone kills a brother, what then? Are they guilty ? Are they held accountable by God ? Does God Punish them ? (according to the Bible)

  21. For what reason did Jesus Messiah instruct His own disciple: you must become like infants/ little children or you will never see the Kingdom of Heaven ? We are to be like little 3 year olds walking along trusting our Heavenly Father all the time for all of our lives and everything in our lives, as Jesus does and did. Just like a 3 year old with his dad walking along, seeing an object laying on the sidewalk, or something in the grass or in the street that is new to him/us/ we look up at our Dad and He Knows we want His Word , His Approval, His Permission if it is allowed to pick up the object, to know whether it be good or bad, right or wrong, helpful or valuable or harmful or to be left alone at once (don't dwell on wicked ways with sinful men or their objects). So we remain in union with the Father in heaven , in Christ Jesus, Daily, Seeking His Appraisal of everything before we mess with it, pick it up, consider it, study it, have it, or even desire it.

  23. We must also remember that prayer is more than just asking God for things. It is the very same, or even more intense relationship as we have, or should have, with our earthly father. We need extend that relationship to our heavenly Father, talk to Him the way he talks to you, in love and compassion, not just asking for things.

  27. I didn't know it was a common argument against the KJV when I say I use the KJV 1769 and not KJV 1611, because I do say this all the time and I am not against the KJV! I do think it is misleading to say 1611 if it's not the one you're actually using, though. What's wrong with being accurate with the year of the KJV Bible you're using?

  28. My answer was in keeping with the original post and discussion. I do not understand the point of the proverb being posted in any other context. If it was not directed at the woman of the OP , I dont see the point othervthan to cause contention, im to sick and tired (literally) to go around in circles . I was hoping to have civil discussion and fellowship on this site as Im shut in quite alot. I dont think this is the place for me.

  29. I do not disagree with the Word of God. But not what I would quote to an unsaved woman who happened to walk in to a service. . Here is another good one from today. "When pride cometh, then cometh shame, but with the lowly is wisdom. (Proverb 11: 2) I need wisdom when dealing with the unsaved . Just like the woman that first invited me to church. She new my biggest issue was not undress , but unbelief.

  30. Perhaps you did not realize that the opium, heroin, and other so-called illegal drugs are not a recognized part of pharmakeia (pharmacy) in the Untied states ? It is entirely a different ball game, although they may or may not be entertwined with each other. People are tricked into thinking the 'legal' pharmaceutical industry is somehow beneficial ? People usually don't think the drug trade in opium and heroin and such is beneficial at all, except the ones making billions of dollars a day or week or whatever in it. Soldiers of every rank reported the massive drug trade / channels / at all the wars we participated in since the Korean War or thereabout, maybe more. (i.e. it is not a secret at all)

  31. You can go on with hypotheticals all day, how about real scenarios? Get to the point Jeff. No one knows what you are asking about. Just asking random questions makes no sense.
