    I praise the Lord, the God of the Old Testament and the New, that He is leading me into His truth! It seems he has erased all the damage I did to myself by being a Moderate, Charismatic Christian for twelve years. I praise Him for leading me right and reversing my folly in this last year and change, since becoming a Believer. After so many years lost in sin and heading to hell when I died, He has saved me and I will prove true in my faith.

    i am shy in some ways.. I can't speak in front of people... we all have ways that others do not have... so others can help others, did that make sense... God bless you sister.... look to Jesus and His Word not the world and their ways.. its the worlds way to intimidate us...

    You might consider looking at prayer from another angle.  Does your praying cause others to be uncomfortable?  Often new believers will be challenged to pray by the actions of others and you know children they are uninhibited, daddy why don’t we pray?  Not being comfortable is good because it keeps us in remembrance that we are not of the world but we are in it.

    We always pray in public. Not only do we pray, but we all hold hands (on top of the table) while praying.
    Yes, there is the nervous factor; in which, you wonder what people are thinking or if they are staring. However, we (as a family) nor I (if I'm alone) have ever been openly ridiculed or mocked to my knowledge. We have experienced people commending us on a few occasions though.
    If the day comes; in which, people start openly opposing our praying, that will be nothing compared to the persecution that many Christians have suffered...and others in many countries suffer today.
    So no, I don't think there's anything wrong with you...it's just one part of the spiritual warfare that we fight and the struggle we all have between our flesh and spirit.
    I used to be more "concerned" about how others viewed our praying in the past than I am now. Now it hardly enters my mind. I guess my faith, thankfulness, and desire to please the Lord are what makes the difference in my life. I want to please him...not them. ;)
    Also, you don't have to pray for 10 minutes at 10,000 decibels either. We say a short but heartfelt prayer of thanks. :)

    Rosie reacted to HappyChristian in Cardiologist Results   
    The clot in his leg is gone (it was the one that went all the way from his groin to his foot) thanks to surgery. The pain from the vein getting back to normal size is also gone. He's still on Warfarin - for life - and as far as I know the other little clots in his groin and the pieces in his lungs are dissolved or nearly. His INR is usually right in the range it's supposed to be, which indicates that no new clots are forming, praise the Lord!
    Thanks so much for the prayer, everyone.

    Rosie reacted to BabeinChrist in I have a question   
    As soon as we die, our soul immediately goes to either Heaven or Hell.
    Since you are saved, you will go to Heaven.
    You ask : "...when will we be judged...". Who are you referring to when you say "we"?
    Because everyone will be judged, whether saved or unsaved, but there will be 2 different judgments, one for the saved, one for the unsaved, and they occur at different times, and with different results....
    If you are referring to believers(saved), we will appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ, to receive our rewards when Christ returns with the saints to rapture the believers, which I think, (according to Matthew 24 & 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 & other verses), will be immediately after the tribulation but just BEFORE God pours out His wrath. 
    "Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
    For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
    According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
    For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
    Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
    Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
    If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward." ....1 Corinthians 5:8-14
    The passage above is speaking on the rewards  given during the Judgment Seat of Christ. Not sins *Jesus paid for our sins, past, present & future on the Cross*, just our works we've done , and the ones that glorify God, like getting people saved, suffering persecution for His sake, etc., will be rewarded.  All the ones that didn't further His Kingdom, like watching the Superbowl, are likened to wood, hay & stubble, and will burn up (no reward for those things).
    "For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
    For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
    If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
    For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
    Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
    Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
    (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
    We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
    Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.
    For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
    Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
    For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart.
    For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.".......2 Corinthians 5:1-13
    Now, the Judgment at the Great White Throne of God is for the unsaved ONLY.
    That is after the Millenial Reign , and since they are the unsaved, they will be judged by their works, and since they didn't believe on Christ during their life, they are all judged guilty and will be thrown into the Lake of Fire.
    That is tragic, and why we must win souls to the Lord, so they can hear (& hopefully, believe) the Gospel of Jesus Christ & be saved.

    Sorry - I know nothing about Kindles.
    What I do know is that the process you used was only effective for the computer you changed it on.
    Have you had the problem on the Kindle as well?
    It would be unusual for someone to get onto multiple platforms - it is an individual "PC" (or whatever) thing.
    Anyway, best to keep a check on it for a little while and make sure it is all sorted.
    And check that setting on your PC once in a while, just to be sure.

    Always remember...the best defense against viruses and malware is...you.
    Keep your system updated.
    Keep your browser updated.
    Be wise in your internet usage. Don't visit questionable sites. Be careful in following links from one site to another.
    Don't click on things unless you know what you're clicking on.
    Don't click on things that suddenly appear on your screen.
    Don't click on links in your email unless you know for certain the email came from someone (or a company) you know personally and trust. You can often hover your mouse over the "From" person/company in the email, and it will show you the actual email address of who it came from. If it looks strange, don't even open the email...delete it.
    If after those simple rules, you still get a pop-up that suddenly appears on your screen...DO NOT CLICK ON IT! Look at it closely.
    Are any words misspelled? Is it from an actual program that you know is on your computer? Often things look legitimate, but the name will be just a little bit different. This was how I first experienced a virus. The pop-up had the name of my antivirus, but it had added something to the name. I can't remember it now, but let's say for example that I was using Avast at the time (though I wasn't). The pop-up said it was from Avast 2010 instead of just Avast. That's just an example; I hope you get my meaning. Do the words/sentences make normal sense? Many of these things come from other countries, so they may not say things in the right way, or the sentences may not "flow" as they should. If any of that happens...DON'T CLICK ANYTHING. SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN BY HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON IN UNTIL IT TURNS OFF. Then either start the computer back up in Safe Mode (if you know how to do that)...or...disconnect the internet...whether turning off the router or unplugging the Ethernet cable. When you start the computer back up, immediately run a Virus/Malware scan. If that goes well, reconnect your internet, update your antivirus/malware...and scan it again. It's better to be safe than sorry.
    No Antivirus/Malware is fool-proof. Your best defense is you...
