  1. I’m very scared, but I know it’s my human flesh/the devil. I’m scared I won’t be able to repent or what he will show me, but I know the condemnation is that light has come to the world and men hated the light, lest their deeds be reproved. PLEASE pray for me!!!
  2. I don’t want my sin to drag me to hell, so I want Christ to change me SO I can please Him. But, I know we are supposed to love God, before we can get saved, right? At least at the initial point of salvation? I mean, if I go back to my sin as soon as I get a little assurance, because I feel “off the hook”, do I TRULY love God? I know Biblically that can’t be the case. I’ve tried and wept and agonized and read the Bible, prayed, searched the Scriptures, talked with other Christians for 8 years now and still feel convicted I’m unsaved. I don’t know what to do anymore. I’m getting closer to
  3. I’ve tried this and got so weary and afraid, because I’m just agonizing to be saved, but I’m listening to the same things I already know, trying to get to that point! If God is ready to save me, I want to be saved today, I can’t take it anymore! I was reading the Gospel of John last night, I already have heard and read it, it doesn’t make me more ready to be saved, I already want to!!
  4. No matter how much of the Bible I read, how many sermons I listen to, or how much I pray, I cannot repent. I cannot truly have hatred of sin. My motivation is to not go to hell and when I feel at all secure that I’m going to Heaven, I immediately don’t care about if I’m sinning or not. I cannot feel bad that sin hurts God. I only care about myself. I’ve felt convicted for years that I’m unsaved for this reason. I don’t know what to do. I’m scared and running out of hope. I’m worried I’m to hard spiritually to repent. HOW do I settle this??
  5. That is so, horrible. That would be such a horrifying thing to learn of someone at your church, especially! Are you saying a person that’s ever committed fornication of any kind, isn’t allowed to ever be married, though? I still think it could be allowed if found out, but not sure if it would actually make the marriage, illegitimate?
  6. “But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.” ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭7:28‬ ‭KJV‬‬ What does this mean? Is it a sin then, for a non-virgin woman to be married to someone besides the man that had relations with her, first? Well, I also have read the virgin in regards to a woman can just mean “maiden”, too. So maybe I was interpreting it wrong. Not sure.
  7. Okay, thank you! In regards to the other question, I’m asking if it was mandatory to put the woman away for fornication or was it something they could choose to do if they just personally didn’t desire to be married to her anymore?
  8. When Jesus says the only way you can divorce your wife and it be permitted, is if she commits fornication (either before or during betrothal, I suppose), is it a situation where the woman would be married to the person she had relations with, in God’s eyes (relations=marriage?) or was it not something that had to be done, but would be permissible for other reasons? Basically, what if the woman was truly repentant of her past actions and truly loved and wanted to be a good wife to the man. Would the man have to not be with her, to be in God’s will, because by God’s law, it would be forbid
  9. I would be so grateful if I could get some strong prayers/be put on your prayer list. I feel The Lord working on my heart about something very important and I need prayers for my doubts and my walls around my heart, to fall. I would appreciate it, so much. I also appreciate you, all! You all have been very helpful in helping to teach me things, that I was having difficulty with. Thank you!
  10. Guys, I need extra hard prayers today. I ask that you would please do that. Thank you!
  11. I’m dealing with something very difficult and need to get it right. I’m having an extremely hard time. Please pray hard for me!!
  12. I really appreciate your encouragement and sharing your sympathy towards my mental struggles. That’s very kind, hardly anyone is willing to discuss those things, so, thank you! I am also encouraged by your thoughts on the matter that I wrote about, I’m going to add those points to my notes! Doubts can be very hard to share, I hate telling everyone my struggles, I just get so upset. I’m a very sensitive person, I’ve always been. I do have to trust that I’m saved. I believe/accept the Gospel and have called on the LORD to save me. I need to remember this! God gets the glory an
  13. I have an illness that won’t go away, I would appreciate prayers for healing I would be happy to pray for others, as well
  14. That is helpful, thank you! I need many prayers for my mental/emotional struggles. I have always had ocd/anxiety. It’s a horrible disorder and I need healing.
  15. Thank you, that website has a lot of helpful things! I appreciate it!
  16. I sometimes can’t quite grasp the difference between these two. Jesus says to come unto Him for salvation, but He also says that if someone comes after Him, they must forsake all and pick up their cross. I know it’s not a physical seperation of the world or a promise to not sin, but I feel convicted that in order to fully put yourself on Him for salvation, you must see Him as such, to where you could happily run away from everyone/everything in your life. People see God in a cruel task-master sort of way and that’s why they don’t trust God enough to fully fling thems

  18. What is a good fundraiser that is Christ-based?
  19. What you both said, makes sense. Pharmaceutical companies are crazy. I am definitely going to look into the other options you mentioned. The vitamin K and tomato juice seems like some very easy alternatives!
  20. I’m married. My husband thinks I should be on it for my health issues, too.
  21. I am curious if birth control is okay to use, in cases of health issues. I have a disease that causes extreme blood loss and my family has history of ovarian cancer (which my disease also increases risk of). I have been told by numerous doctors that taking at least a low-dose birth control pill, would help the blood loss and cut my risk of ovarian cancer, by 50%. I’ve heard that the pills can cause an early-term abortion, which is why I still haven’t tried taking them. I haven’t had success yet with iron-rich foods helping my Anemia and there’s no cure for the disease that ca
  22. I agree with that! I feel like I’ve possibly experienced a little of all of them. Yeah, I guess I think my friend probably possesses a particularly strong ability in that area. The way she describes the experience, plus the way her walk with God is, I would believe that she is definitely in-tune with this discernment. At times, I think I can relate to what she’s describing, but on a lower level, I guess.
  23. I see what you’re saying, but I suppose I was thinking that if it’s a specific gift that God gave to a person, it would be a more supernatural experience, because I would assume that any Christian could tell whether someone was doing something wrong or teaching a false gospel. I feel like it must be something, more.
  24. Well, she said to me, that she can discern whether someone has the Holy Spirit in them after a moment of interacting with them. She says she can also discern whether a Christian is “back slidden”, like their light is blocked by worldly garbage. She has also said that she can sense if there’s evil spirits in certain areas, like she knows there’s something wrong. To me, I don’t think these things are unbiblical. I mean, children of God should probably be more sensitive to these thing, since His Spirit is within us. I would think that this would help us “soul-win” and stay away
  25. Pastor Markle, do you believe that the gift of discerning spirits is not in affect anymore? I have a close friend that says she has this ability, she’s a strong Christian woman, so I would normally believe that she would know if this was true or not. What is your take on this?
