  • Rodney w - in Reply on Psalms 1
    the lord said in the begging divorce didn't exist you left your family for your husband and became one flesh but because of the their time in the land of their captivity and the hardness of their hearts Moses allowed them to divorce but in the new testament the lord say's no more and saving for the cause of fornication ( sex outside of marriage ) which is a sin causes her to commit adultery and if you marry another you can't go back to your first husband it's abomination and the person who marries you commits adultery also, so imagine that scale of continual sin committed in the land by not knowing the law and commandments of god.

    but if neither of you have laid ( fornicated ) with someone else you should be alright because people are not suppose to divorce for every thing just fornication
  • SAVOUREST meaning - in Reply on Matthew 16:22
    From the Commentary on this website, anyone can use:

    Thou art acting the very part of Satan, both by endeavouring to hinder the redemption of mankind, and by giving me the most deadly advice that can ever spring from the pit of hell. Thou SAVOUREST NOT, Dost not relish or desire. We may learn from hence, That whosoever says to us in such a case, Favour thyself, is acting the part of the devil: That the proper answer to such an adviser is, Get thee behind me: That otherwise he will be an offence to us, an occasion of our stumbling, if not falling: That this advice always proceeds from the not relishing the things of God, but the things of men. Yea, so far is this advice, favour thyself, from being fit for a Christian either to give or take, that if any man will come after Christ, his very first step is to deny, or renounce himself: in the room of his own will, to substitute the will of God, as his one principle of action.
  • HONEY of the Word - in Reply on Proverbs 14
    Psalms 34:8

    O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

    Job 6:30

    Is there iniquity in my tongue? cannot my taste discern perverse things?

    Psalms 119:103

    How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

    Proverbs 24:13

    My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste:

  • Christian Love on Hebrews 2
    I am NOT going to argue with any Catholics today or any other day. We all stand accountable to God for any choices that we make. It's a personal, one on one kind of accountability. Just you and Jesus at the Bema Seat.

    As is: I do not see the fruit of what is written in 1 Corinthians 13, in some of the comments being made. Where's the Love?

    Christian patience, tolerance, long-suffering?

    Let us all remember that today.

    I would like to submit a question in regards to the word "savourest" used in KJ version. How is this word used here in Matthew 16:23?

    It may be the publisher did that. Check a (Thomas Nelson Bible publisher)and let us know. As long as the verse is the same identically, I see no problem.
  • Nigerian Christians Being Killed for their faith on Jeremiah 10:11
    That's how quickly the death toll has escalated for Christians in Nigeria.

    Earlier this year, roughly 350 Nigerian Christians were killed at the hands of Islamic radicals. By June, the total was over 1,200 murdered for their faith.

    At this rate, some 2,400 innocent Christians - including children - will be slaughtered by year's end. And it could be much, much higher at this precipitous rate. This is no longer just a human rights crisis. It could become an extinction-level event.

    And that doesn't even address the number of Nigerian Christians abducted and enslaved every year. The world should be outraged.

    The ACLJ has gone directly to the U.N., urging international intervention and aid for Nigeria's Christians.

    And we continue to fight for Leah Sharibu, the Christian teen who remains a prisoner of Boko Haram - the brutal Islamic militia in Nigeria - because she won't convert to Islam.

    Violence against Christians is spreading beyond Nigeria's borders. It will soon spread out of control.

    We're fighting to SAVE CHRISTIANS and defend their right to worship freely without fear of violent persecution and death.

    Sign their petition if you agree, and put the believers on your prayer list. Thank you.

    As a baby Christian, music from John Michael Talbot was given to me. He sings Songs, he has written from Psalms ( the older albums).

    He has returned to Catholicism. He has kind of been, in and out. His brother, Terry, has a great song, Wake Up America and I Saw Him.

    I have listened to some "sermons" by John Michael Talbot, and the theme is all Jesus. I'm not going to "judge" either man on his walk with God. No.

    Nor the man who got frustrated with me last night. I forgive his frustration.

    All I know to be fact, is that those whom Jesus loves; He will draw unto Himself. To reveal Himself to them. He has chosen them to follow Him. We have to give up some things, generally, to do that. I can only testify that He's worth more than anything we possess or own. Selah.
  • Grungebyte - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Adam,

    >>Jesus said in John 14:6 "...no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." but Catholics instead elect a Pope to do exactly the opposite- to come in between you and Jesus.

    OOPS! Now it seems that you have misinterpreted the meaning of that verse. I am positive that it has nothing to do with coming between anyone. It has to do with Salvation according to mainstream Christianity. No one comes to the Father - is saved - except by the blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Forgive me please if we are talking at cross purposes but I believe that I am right about this.

    The thing about the Pope is that he is supposed to be the Vicar of Christ - essentially Jesus's representative. According to the New Testament Christians are "of a royal priesthood" and of course do not need an earthly priest to intercede as you've pointed out. There is only one Melchizedek priest - Jesus Christ Himself - whom we pray to intercede for us during prayer.

    I agree with you Adam that Catholicism - in all probability - isn't the correct religion. That is probably true. However Catholics themselves are indeed true Christians. Why? Because they believe that Jesus Christ is their Lord and Saviour. And that - according to the Bible - is all it takes.

    May the Force be with you Adam.

    You will still be troubled. To find true peace you need the Holy Spirit.
  • A bible believer - in Reply on Proverbs 14
    you got one thing wrong tho. 1 Corinthians 15:2 says "IF ye keep...". The One time saved always saved is a false doctrine. We have to KEEP following the Word.
  • Grungebyte - in Reply on Revelation 1
    Adam, sadly you are doing the one thing that epitomizes one of the failings of Christianity. There are pros and cons to all of the 11 living religions. I don't mean the beads and the snakes but the living religions. One of the cons or failings of Christianity is that Christians often pay more attention to dogma or to which Christian sect is more correct than to the lofty ideals of Jesus Himself.

    "Believe on me."--Jesus Christ.

    Btw, you yourself don't pay a lot of attention to the Bible either. Trust me. I'll wager that you think that Revelation is all about the future and you are also waiting for the silly Rapture. Right? The first eleven chapters of Revelation are in the PRESENT tense not future tense and the Rapture isn't Biblical. So my strong advice is to revisit your Bible.

    May the Lord be with you Adam.
  • Doris on Galatians 5:20
    I am looking for 'abuse' in a marriage. Not physical abuse but mental/emotional abuse and if that is an activity that would justify divorce in a Christian marriage.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 1 Maccabees 4
    What I know is that Catholics come in here from time to time, in search of some better understanding of Jesus; the person of their religion. Seeking a relationship with Jesus.

    Our friend Chris, that's a great teacher has much knowledge on these matters is on a trip till September. He's much better at answering their questions.

    People could sift through the recent history pages of room comments (1-100), at the bottom of this screen, to search for his previous comments to Catholics. Just look for his name.

    My testimony is about Jesus, who is known to reach down into the mess of our lives and pull us into a reality that is impossible to deny. He really cares enough to show Himself "to hard cases" like myself. I'm like Paul in a way: killing people with my take on life; until the God of Life knocked me into His reality. Impossible to deny that.
  • Sarah whitten on Ecclesiasticus 9:4

  • A bible believer - in Reply on Proverbs 14
    U know what i realized? is that Ezekiel 3:1 -3 said" 1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll[What speaketh the Lord], and go speak unto the house of Israel.

    2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.

    3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness."

    And Proverbs 24:13 is like a prophetic word!
  • Andy G van den Berg on 2 Corinthians 11
    2 Corinthians 11:13-15

    The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and not for any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20). If it records in Revelation 12:9 that this whole world has been deceived it did not speak of a particular country, group of people, person or religion, it meant the whole world.

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' how and by whom ( 2 Corinthians 11:13-15) this whole world has been deceived and what mankind must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    Only through Repentance will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Romans 8:15,23; 2 Corinthians 6:18; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1) and reveal to you how this whole world has been deceived (Revelation 12:9)..

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).



    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Revelation 12:9), and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (John 14:17).

    It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Revelation 3:21). It should be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).
  • Greg - in Reply on Hebrews 2
    Hi Carlton,

    I agree that Jesus is the way to everlasting life.

    I am not sure what you mean by a "condemned to death sinner" being "protected by the Law" by "putting themselves in the Mercy Seat of Christ."

    I don't want to live in a society that allows murderers to be justified in the Law because they have decided to be "brave enough" to believe that the Law of God has been fulfilled through the blood of Christ and therefore we do not need to be under it anymore.

    Faith in Jesus does not free people from the consequences of sin.

    Murderers are to be dispatched back to God.

    Forgiveness is up to the one offended, not the offender; and it is based on repentance.

    The Law is there for us to follow.

    Again, I will state that only Jesus did not NEED the Law.

    He was Perfect.

    The rest of us need the Law.

    Concerning the "Bride:"

    I don't believe that the collective Christian churches are the Bride of Christ.

    The Bride is Jerusalem that God took to wife (Ezekiel 16:8), and SHE will be renewed and called "New Jerusalem" (Revelation 3:12, 21:2)

    We as Christians make up the collective "body" of Christ (Ephesians 1:23, 5:23, Colossians 1:18, 24, etc..)

    Just came on here. I thought only the Catholic Church talked about the Apocrapha as though it was scripture. Surprised to see it on here. The Catholic Church needs the Apocrapha to support much of its doctrine, why read their stuff.......it was removed from KJV for a reason.
  • Naomia - in Reply on Acts 18:17
    In 1 Corin 1:1 Paul calls Sosthenes a brother (in christ). So if this is the same person in Acts 18:17.He was a Christisn and beaten probably because he allowed Paul to teach.
  • Michelle - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Jesus died for our sins. The old meaning of "for" is because. He died because of our sins, not to wash them away.
