We have nothing that God wants, so He can't be bribed.
"We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous
deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither
and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind." Isaiah 64:6
Anyone who calls them self a Christian should be wholeheartedly seeking God and living their lives entirely for Him, otherwise they're unworthy of calling themselves a Christian. That is what the Bible says, and only those people who devote their lives to Him will ever find out that He is real.
And personally, I've seen enough … Read more
I know it may seem like it now, but this is not a serious relationship. This guy won't matter to you when you're 25. 14 is too young to be dating anyway.
However, I know what you mean. It's a human instinct to want children. How else would our species survive? But 14 is FAR too … Read more
Prayer is supposed to be selfless and pure. Not to be used to ask for selfish things, but for a new heart, spirit, nature, righteousness, faith, understanding, hope, wisdom, and love. Pray for others and yourself. Not to gain material possessions, but to gain Jesus, His righteousness, grace, and mercy.
*** Matt. 24:13, RS: “He who endures to the end will be saved.” (So a person’s final salvation is not determined at the moment that he begins to put faith in Jesus.)
Heb. 10:26, 27, RS: “If we sin deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, … Read more
You might be a perfect saved Christian one day, then the next day you could rape, kill, and go out on the town steaming pissed swearing your head off. Once saved definitely not always saved. It would only really matter if you were saved when you died or not. Anything you did in your earlier … Read more
The saying: "Once saved, always saved" is a popular saying but it is not supported by the Bible. Jesus said: "he that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved", (Matthew 24:13)
To be honest, it's mostly "Christians" and atheists that do that. Atheists because they think Christians are morons, and "Christians" because the vast majority of them are self righteous hypocrites.
Now, the "Christians" I'm talking about are just regular people who go to Church on Sundays and call themselves Christian. "Christian" is merely a title for … Read more
The answer is in the Bible:
Matthew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
If you really want to … Read more
Everyone on earth has asked this question in their life. How did we get here, what or who made us, and what is the meaning of life?
If we really did come from a chance explosion that produced a rock which morphed into a pile of cosmic slime 14 billion years ago, which slowly turned into … Read more
I would ask for:
1. Hope without measure
2. Grace without measure
3. Godly desire without measure
Jesus dies for our sins. Most people don't even know how terrible that death was. They weren't even finished beating Him, and yet He was already beaten so badly that His own mother didn't recognize Him. They hammered metal spikes through his feet and wrists, hanging from those spikes for hours. They gave Him a … Read more
