  1. Hi Everybody! I'm still around, always praying for you, just been out of the community for a while (guess you need that sometimes)

  4. Here is what you do, ask God what is appropriate. God will get you to eliminate what He sees as inappropriate, even if we are wearing inappropriate skirts, He did it with me. If you truly looked at the way worldly women present themselves wearing pants you can see God's view on the matter and that it isn't very attractive, plus it introduces lust to the eyes of men.
  5. I do not know of any Scripture that says you must believe in the trinity, there is Scripture that proves the trinity,which the Holy Spirit eventually teaches a saved person that the three are in fact, one. "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son." - 1 John 5:7-10. And I know that your question is not about that, but personally, when I give the plan of salvation I am speaking about Jesus alone, the only perfect Son of God. No mention of Him being God and the Holy Spirit ever comes up, but no one questions it either when I witness to them. If people believe that Jesus is the perfect Son of God they will eventually understand He is God as they grow. So, technically, I believe that a person can be saved by believing in Christ alone, if they believe that He is the only perfect Son of God, whom died on the cross, was buried, and arose from the dead and they are trusting in Him alone to save them then I believe they can be saved. If they do not believe in the Gospel, then no, they will not be saved.
  6. God chooses many means to be glorified, often through things we cannot with human understanding comprehend. My brother, healthy as can be, got a cold within two days he was in the hospital, it turned into pneumonia. He was on his way to recovery, even woke up and started trying to get out of bed, two days later he died, he was 34 years old, others in much worse condition recover. I do not try to explain why God allows some people to have a miracle recovery while others get to go to heaven before the time we expect because that is between God and each individual. Everything, good, bad, and ugly, is in the hands of God, how we deal with it is in our hands. God knows how we are going to react, He knows who is going get angry at Him for the loss or abuse of a child, it has nothing to do with the curse, it's how we handle these situations that brings a type of curse. I believe that there are two ways that people handle things, God's way or our own way, He already knows how we are going to handle them too. We can choose to get angry at God or draw near to God, we can choose to get bitter and hate God or find peace through God. Some of Jesus' disciples asked Jesus what sin a man or his parents committed that caused him to be blind, Jesus said, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
  7. Okay, but while we may face the repercussions of others sin, I do not think the things we go through have anything to do with that. We were passed down that horrible sin nature, but we can overcome it through Christ. Every time I read through Judges to 2 Kings I think of the judgment as a nation that we face because of ungodly leaders, no matter what nation we are struggling.
  8. God has a hand in everything that we go through, He allows the devil to afflict us, test us, tempt us, but to say that it is a curse, I do not think that everything we go through is a curse. It's for a purpose which I believe is to bring us closer to depending on God for everything, not necessarily because we have sin in our lives. I no longer ask God why He allows things, I ask God how to get through them because I know there is a blessing coming in there somewhere.
  9. Neither is the word Bible, but I know it does not degrade God's Word.
