  • Is Your Church Worshipping in Vain?

    Certainly wise words in your post. Begs the question though: HOW can we know the best way to worship God?

    Worship is an expression or act of love, keeping Gods commandments is the act.

    John 14
    15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    John 3
    18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

    John 4
    24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

    Jesus tells us in Mathew 22:37,38,39,40 what his commandments are.

    Matthew 16:18 - And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock [Jesus’ deity] I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    That is how i have always saw it but ( Jesus` deity ) is only an assumption.

    But that is not all, Jesus also told Peter he was going to give him the keys to the kingdom, how could one apply with out the other also applying.

    I have some biblical the robe, Demetrius and the gladiators`, the ten ,commandments and a couple more.

    I do not have any of the life of Christ as i have not ran across any that i really wanted to watch.

    Exo 20:8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

    That is right, holding Church on Sunday is fine, but calling it the Sabbath is just the same as calling God a liar.

    we may as well stay home and sleep in on Sunday. After all, they both accomplish the same goal in the way of worship.

    That is the key, Did Jesus teach us what we should do in church on Sunday or did he teach us a way of life that we should live every day?

    His meaning was probably that he would rather live in a free country and be able to do his own choosing.

    We can choose good or evil, some one forcing you to live a Godly life does not make you a man of God.

    But he may be way behind the times, maybe fifty years ago?

    Matthew 22:30
    For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

    This is about as close as it can come to saying angels do not marry so I would say the sons of God are not angels.

    It could be referring to Seth and Cain although I see no reason it would produce giants.

    I have not changed my mind, I still believe God created man
    on the sixth day which was not literal but a time period.

    And created Adam at a later date, who`s descendants were called the sons of God.

    And it is obvious in order to believe this I can not believe in the young earth theory which I would not be inclined to believe in anyway.

    The liberals first defense of socialism will always be ( some one has to feed the babies )

    But do they feed them? well we know for sure they kill them.

    The word liberal means generous and I have saw many more
    liberals among the conservatives than I ever have among the liberals.

    Isaiah 32:

    5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

    6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

    7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.

    8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

    Why would they have to deviseth liberal things if they were true?

    Yes, they call them selves liberal but they are vile.

    Good post Salvation

    If every one did to others as they would like for others to do to them it would be a great place to be but we do not do that, why?

    1 John 2
    16 For 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.

    We are lining in this world but we are not of this world.

    John 15:19.
    If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

    And PGR88 wrote
    “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.”
    Matthew 10:34-36

    Matthew 24:14
    And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    If every thing was the way we believe it should be there would be no goats to separate from the sheep and there is going to be a separation at the end of the world and that may be sooner than we think.

    The one consolation we have is that God knows what to do with all of the innocent lives that are lost due to the
    selfishness, arrogance and greed of the people who preach kindness from one side of their mouth but evil from the other.

    I happen to believe those souls are safe with God, but God have mercy on the ones who took their lives.

    1 Peter 4
    12 Dearly beloved, think not strange the burning heat which is to try you, as if some new thing happened to you;

    13 But if you partake of the sufferings of Christ, rejoice that when his glory shall be revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.

    14 If you be reproached for the name of Christ, you shall be blessed: for that which is of the honour, glory, and power of God, and that which is his Spirit, resteth upon you.

    15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or a thief, or a railer, or a coveter of other men’s things.

    16 But if as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.

    It appears that it is the murderer who is going to suffer rather than the murdered, obviously in this life and possibly the next one.

    What can I do about it? the most I can think to do about it is to quit being part of the problem.

    Gods people only need the words of Jesus.

    Hebrews 8
    10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

    It is the people who are anti God that we have to guard against so we need all of the scripture to prove they are liars.

    As for the earth, it was created by God regardless of if it is four thousand years old or ten million years.

    I am not what you would call a pillar of faith but my faith is not so weak that i would have to believe the six days were literal days in order to believe in Gods creation.

    If some one were to prove to me the earth was billions of years old my faith in God would be the same because God created it.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness

    We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions

    And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

    The three verses above leaves no doubt about the belief of our founders that God is in control, they were putting their lives on the line because of their faith in our creator.

    The first amendment.
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.[1]

    People can make all kind of claims of what it means but it speaks for itself.

    It tells the Congress what they can not do.

    It does not tell the States what they can not do.

    It does not tell religion what it can not do.

    The Judges are ruling against laws that congress did not even make because they could not make them, which means the Judges are making the laws.

    A few years ago the supreme court justices forced Alabama, I believe it was to take Gods commandments from the wall of the state building.

    If there had been a law made by congress that Gods commandments had to be on the wall of the state building then the Judges would have been within their rights but there was no such law.

    We need to have public hangings of supreme court judge`s , and use hot ropes to do it with.

    And of course I will vote for Cruz but not sure I would be doing any God fearing man or woman a favor by helping them get elected.

    ravenwolf to NRx

    Many Protestants have made much of Christ’s reply to her: “What is this between you and me?” They have treated the statement to mean: “What business is this of yours?”

    I believe Jesus is just telling Mary that although she knows her son is a gift from God she does not know his purpose.

    Her suggestion that he make wine hints that in her mind he was just here for her delight.

    And this is also shown mark 3
    31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him.

    32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.

    33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

    34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

    35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.

    Mary and he her step children or what ever they were were not followers of Jesus, if they had of been they would not have been with out and at any rate would not have had to ask permission to see him.

    John 7
    3 His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence, and go into Judaea, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest .

    4 For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly *. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.

    5 For neither did his brethren believe in him.

    6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come : but your time is alway ready.

    7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth , because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.

    8 Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come .

    9 When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.

    10 But when his brethren were gone up , then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret.

    In the scriptures where Mary is mentioned she is with the brethren of Jesus who did not believe in him at the time.

    This all must have came later espically for James and Jude and it must have taken Mary quite some time to realize that Jesus was also her savior.
