    Andrew, May I suggest you study the life of Samson before you try to teach people about suicide being an unpardonable sin.

    Judges Chapter 16:27 Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines [were] there; and [there were] upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.

    28 And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.

    (Samson asked the Lord for strength to kill himself and the philistines)

    29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.

    30 And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with [all his] might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that [were] therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than [they] which he slew in his life.

    Hebrews Chapter 11:31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

    32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and [of] Barak, and [of] SAMSON Samson, and [of] Jephthae; [of] David also, and Samuel, and [of] the prophets:

    33 Who through FAITH faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

    Samson committed suicide and he is in the Hebrews hall of faith.

    No. If a person commit sucide, he will not enter the kingdom of God. Each we may do a small mistake. But when we seek earnestly for God to forgive that sin, He will forgive you.

    If a person commit sucide he will not enter eternal life.
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj - in Reply on Mark 6:3
    In replying Lawrence R Graham,

    Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

    The book of Mormon is not from God. It comes from a fallen angel. So you should stop follow Mormonism. Bible is enough.

    Jesus christ always remind us the existence of Hell. But the book of Mormon says there is no Hell. And they also equal themselves with God which is unbiblical. Once upon a day Satan wants to equal himself with God and want to sit above his thron. It is the reason he fall from heaven.

    Revelation 22:18

    18
    For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

    19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
  • Andrew Kingsly Raj - in Reply on Titus 3
    In replying Kaden Huggins (Mathew 12:31) All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven but blasphemy against the holy spirit shall not be forgiven.

    Yes, If you want to repent and ask Lord for forgiveness, He is faithful to forgive you(even it may be bestiality or homosexuality). But blasphemy against holy spirit is not be forgiven.

    Revelation 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

    So submit your life unto God and ask for Holy Spirit(which will guide you in the path of rightiousness.
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 19
    Dear Bob,

    Sounds like what I wrote had no affect so I don't believe discussing further will be fruitful. You asked where the phrase 'hate the sin, love the sinner' is in the Bible- I didn't say that was in the Bible, but it summarizes what the Bible says. Loving others is everywhere throughout the Bible, including the 2nd greatest commandment. The phrase "So we should love satanists who follow satan?" isn't in the Bible either. But the answer is yes, Jesus says to love your neighbor (everyone) as they are made in God's image, not the sin or their evil choices.

    I will end the discussion with this verse. It's out of Jesus's mouth and I'm not one to argue with Jesus. God bless...

    Matthew 5:43-48
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Genesis 19
    Adam, where does the Bible say hate the sin, love the sinner? I can not find it anywhere.

    Bible book of Malachi Chapter 1:1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi 2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,

    3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

    And I hated Esau, God said he hated Esau.

    Yes I know some will say that this really means he loved less.

    so when the Lord hates sin that means he loves sin less?

    Oh Paul confirms the above in Romans.

    So we should love satanists who follow satan?
  • Adam - in Reply on Genesis 19
    Hi Bob,

    I believe the phrase: hate the sin, love the sinner applies to this. I don't believe it applies to satan himself, but to people.

    We're all sinners, but yes, I consider a sin like mass murder greater than a sin of lying, so it's only natural to look at the person more severely, but I think we should instead deeply hate the sinful act, and deeply hate those choices/decisions, but not the underlying person. For example, Hitler's sin should be deeply hated, but God made him in his image just like you. So the part that God created is the part we should love, even though that part might be hard to see as it can be clouded and hidden by the evil the person is trying to do. Even the worst offenders have multiple chances to make themselves right with God and if they do we should accept them. What if you hated a mass murderer who became a Christian, would you still hate him as a person? If so, then you'd hate one of the greatest authors of the Bible and evangelists for Christ: Paul. God loves giving people many chances, that's the beauty of grace, and we need to give that same grace to others, otherwise, we will be judged for it: Matthew 7:1 - God bless!

    look into the symptoms of autism and compare to the symptoms of mercury poisoning.

    Thimerasal is another name for mercury used as a preservative in some vaccines.

    Vaccine makers are exempted from lawsuits thanks to congress.

    what kind of incentive do the vaccine makers have for safety if it costs them money and they can not be sued?

    Yes some vaccines have mercury in them.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Titus 3
    Kaden, if they repent and turn from their sin and ask forgiveness in Christ, then that is my opinion yes Bestiality and sodomy can be forgiven. But there comes a point in time when the Lord sears one's conscience with a hot iron. in other words the door of salvation is slammed shut and then nailed tight.

    1 Timothy Chapter 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

    2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

    Romans 1: 26 For this cause God GAVE THEM UP (gave up on them?) unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God GAVE THEM OVER to a REPROBATE reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    If the Holy Spirit convicts them, it is time to repent. When someone seeks and wants the Lord more than their sin they shall find the Lord.

    Its Also The beginning of evils! And what shall I do when these evils shall come?"
  • Bob Hilt on Genesis 19
    Christians are to love all people? So are we to love satanists?

    David a man after God's own heart said the following

    Psalms 139:21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?

    2 Chronicles 19:2 And Jehu the son of Hanani the seer went out to meet him, and said to king Jehoshaphat, Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate the LORD? therefore is wrath upon thee from before the LORD.

    Read that again why don't you.

    Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

    Deuteronomy 23: 17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a SODOMITE of the sons of Israel.

    18 Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a DOG, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these [are] abomination unto the LORD

    Romans Chapter 1:

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    Mishael to Peter - in Reply on Genesis 1

    Hi. d give me a bit of time as I'm old and have a few problems however don't stress yourself. You have been blessed and I can tell you the things you have done; a letter to the churches; a song or a hymn, etc. is fantastic Jesus said that the churches was a den of thieves or something and they are even worst today; and the other things you speak about is the war in Heaven, I suspect; So, i will give you a proper reply in a day or so; but for npw can u tell me where to find the Lords pray and the ten commandments; and if you do; You may delay a response for maybe 3 or 4 days but istill would like to have it, meanwhile, take care; and I will as i said , re[ly proprly a later etc,,u know i have bad eyes and am sort of old and can[t type but no worries; it can be dome even properly; also waht is a den of fire or something like that regarding the war in the heavens?

    have a great dau; and was that song in deed called a hymn but u did not want to say so as people may think u are nuts. Waht odds what people think. You know the Bible and your grand mother did also and how about your mom. Did she know it? Mine lived with me; and i have to say; when she dot old, as my cousin lived with his mom all his life and never married; and people thought that there was something wrong with a man like that worth lots of money; and so I have to say when she got old she came to live with me but I was living common law the time and had little money. So I suppose everything was and is okay. Any way have a great day and i will get back to u later. Co,plete and uneditted
  • Chris - in Reply on Romans 14
    Mary, this is an age old question from people who want to prove that either God doesn't exist or that He is not the loving God Whom we say He is. There is no easy, clear answer that can be given which will satisfy those enquirers. We know that God is a God of Love - that is Who He is & the reason why we are here as are all of His creation. We also know that He never wanted anyone to die, but man chose to disobey Him & to be arrogant to Him, so the penalty of our sin is death & eternal separation from Him was the result. Then the questions: if we adults have to die, then why should the innocent children also die? Then if God stopped them from dying now, does that mean that He will let them die later or maybe not die at all? But we all have to die as a result of who we are & sadly, little children are also affected by this. Though Jesus did speak of those who wanted to harm the children as those deserving of death for their wickedness (Matthew 18:6).

    These are strange questions I've given but I'm trying to show that unfortunately, both adult & child have to suffer pain, hardship & death, simply because we are a fallen creation (sinners) living in a world once beautiful, but now reeling in the effects of that corruption. And when God looks at us in our troubles, He also sees us through His Son Who came to give His Life for us so that even if we have to die physically, we won't have to die spiritually in Hell. And this is the promise to all people who come to God by faith in Jesus' death at Calvary. And those little ones who die before their innocence is lost, will still go to Heaven as they have not sinned wilfully as a result of their sin nature. These are comforting to us Christians, but the unsaved will only want to see God as a cruel unloving Person. They need to know that we all die because of our sinful nature & disobedience to God - BUT God has given us an opportunity to enjoy eternal life in Heaven if we come back to Him in His way (John 14:6).
  • Chris - in Reply on John 6
    My actions? When looking at John 6:53-58, I understand that Jesus is speaking to those who want to belong to Him. And so He uses the imagery of "eating His Flesh & drinking His Blood" signifying that to belong to Him, we must partake of His Life. When we do, we receive new life (v 53), eternal life (v 54), we dwell in Him & He in us (v 56 & John 14:23) & our life is by (through) Him (v 57).

    RCs believe that we must actually eat Christ's flesh & blood = transubstantiation, (which they say, that the emblems mysteriously turn into) so as to partake in Jesus' Life. But in fact, Jesus spoke metaphorically, showing how that this intense & personal relationship with Him can be adequately viewed as partaking of His Person & enjoyment of His Being. And when we meet around the Lord's Table, we remember His death for us by taking of the emblems (symbols) of His broken Body & shed Blood (v 51) & this in turn speaks to us not only of His Sacrifice but also of our deep relationship we now enjoy 'in Christ'.
  • Chris on Daniel 7
    Paul, that's an interesting comment you make, one which I had not given much thought to as I understood it as read. So, you're saying, "I do not believe for one second (that) Jesus had a flaw or sweated blood". That is very true if it were indeed 'a flaw or actual blood'. And yes, the mention of it in Luke 22:44 is the only one, which I suspect is so because of Luke's profession & interest in all things medical.

    Hematohidrosis, which the medical doctors class this as, seemed very likely what Jesus was experiencing at the Mt. of Olives. Yes, it is a condition, even rare by all accounts, but should it be classified as a 'flaw (in Jesus' perfect Body)? This condition has been observed in others who are experiencing extreme moments of stress & anguish (e.g. some soldiers about to enter into battle), so Luke describes this occurrence to show us the agony of our Lord as He also contemplated the full implications of His Sacrifice. Not just in a physical torture & death, but for the eternal release of those caged in sin & hell bound.

    Also, what do you make of John 19:34? At the spearing of Jesus' side, both blood & water spewed out. Was this too a 'flaw'? Or, maybe a physiological reaction to the rupture of the pericardium of the heart, which was filled with fluid as a result of a crucifixion, & brought forth that liquid (water) & blood from ruptured veins & arteries.

    So, I don't see either of these events as flaws, but serving to prove to us once again, the full humanity in every detail, that Jesus took upon Himself so that he would suffer & die as a man (yet a perfect Man) without avoiding any of the torture we would have faced if put in a similar position. And our crucifixion & death would have been justified as sinners, but this Man did nothing amiss, was sinless, but for OUR sins He came & died.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Mark 6:3
    No offense, but you have a religion. If your God is not Jesus, the Word of God; who Created the World...

    And your Bible is a Book of Mormon?

    At this late date in the history of man; you should seek the God of the Bible. There is no salvation by any other NAME. You have to repent, receive Jesus, and confess your salvation to others.

    Study a KJV version of the Bible. Start in 1, 2, 3, John in the back, in front of Revelation.
  • Mishael on Revelation 18
    You don't get saved with religion. Period. It takes RELATIONSHIP with Jesus your SAVIOR. Religion won't heal you; it won't find jobs; it can't save your soul from hell.

    Repent. Take up your cross. Follow Jesus daily. Not just on Sunday.

  • Mishael on Spiritual Warfare - in Reply on Psalms 70
    People look on the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.

    You are listening to the Accuser of the Brethren. His other name is Satan. Of course he doesn't want you to go to church or read your Bible. Read Proverbs 31. That is your example of a woman of God.

    See an endocrinologist to check for balance in your blood and hormones. Be obedient no matter the discomfort of your body being normalized. Take all your drugs & vitamins in a baggie so they have more info.

    A lot of spiritual warfare takes place in the mind. Learn scripture to fight back. Satan tempted Jesus. Jesus said IT IS WRITTEN: thou shalt not Tempt the Lord your God!!

    Satan left. Satan studies us to find our weaknesses; intently. Find 10 more scriptures to hurl at him. He'll leave but he'll come back later to see if you were really serious. Be ready. Does the voice ACCUSE? That's him.

    It is written: I am fearfully and wonderfully made!

    It is written! I have the MIND of CHRIST!

    (Jesus is not bi-polar)

    Satans demons have names like: infirmity, insanity, death, unclean, bipolar, pain, doubt....see what I'm saying. Ask The Holy Spirit to give you the names. Write them down.

    Say, it is written: I command in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth, and by the blood he shed for ME, which cleansed me and paid for my healing: you demon of infirmity go into outer darkness and dry places!

    Satan your future is the lake of fire, prepared for you and your evil angels!

    Pray for your kids, husband, jobs, safety: whatever Satan tortures your mind with; write it down and command as above.

    Get loud. If you have to go sit in the car and do your warfare, so be it.

    If a little pain creeps back in...enforce! Pray it again. Satan hates being told his future is hell. He's been there before.

    If there's anything in your home looks like an idol or evil: get rid of all of it. Demons use that for entrance. This works. Cling to the Holy Spirit. Forgive everyone till it takes root. Copy This.

  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Hi Christy, I'd like to share a thought on the last part of your comment too. First, thanks for sharing this- this is not easy to share for some. Secondly, many people deal with social anxiety in social situations so you would not be the only one experiencing that if you go to church. Third, people should not be judging others' appearances and if you feel some may be doing that perhaps you can avoid them. God wants us to fellowship with others and build each other up- that is one of the goals of a church meeting, besides worship and studying His word. Instead of an inward focus, if you think of yourself as a servant with an outward focus and if you attend church to share words of love and encouragement with others to build them up, I think you will feel more comfortable, feel more joy, peace, and love. Think of it as your own assignment working for the Lord and you're showing up to serve. It's a change of mindset. It's not about you or what you look like, it's about showing your love to others. You may have gifts God has blessed you with that can be used to help others. Also, this can be used outside the church too. Maybe doing these acts of love and kindness will make you feel more like you did when you were 15. I hope this is helpful. I took time to share this because I care. May God bless you!
  • Adam - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Hi Christy,

    Fear can rob you of peace, but love overcomes fear. 1 John 4:18, John 16:33. So, perhaps a better solution to finding peace instead of worrying about it is to practice loving Jesus, loving others, and loving yourself, then trusting God with bringing peace to your heart. Love can be expressed through a variety of ways and actions. Being a blessing to others can bring joy to your life. Philippians 4:7-13. I think by expressing love you will find peace in your heart. May God bless you!
  • Adam - in Reply on Malachi 3:10
    Hi Teboho,

    I believe praying should be genuine and come from the heart. I think it should not be selfish or materialistic. I think ones motives should be pure in the prayer request, because we are not supposed to follow the world or its riches, but follow Jesus and seek our treasures in heaven, not on Earth. Matthew 6:19-20. God says we can ask for anything through faith- it should be through love too. 1 Corinthians 13:2, Matthew 21:21-22.

    Given that info, I think it's ok to privately pray to be able to pay your debts and bills and for job increases and to tithe to help others. I would be careful praying for material possessions, however, because where is the heart? What is the motive? Is the goal to built treasures on Earth or in heaven?

    Hope that perspective is helpful. God bless you!
