Discussion for Ephesians 4

    (17-19) Many seem to believe that everything is automatically done for us the moment we become a Christian. While we have confessed our sins to God and repented with the most solemn and sincere intentions, and have received forgiveness and a new start in life, no longer under sin's dominion and control over us; yet there is much still in us that is not fit for God's presence and fellowship.

    BSP: There are way many Churches that "Preach" from The Bible? They look and sound good. They help others,don't drink or curse. They done this or that,said a Prayer and believe they are Saved. When they tell the Pastor they don't Feel Saved,he will ask did you ask The Lord in your Life. Well don't trust your feeling,that's Satan. With The Spirit Living within, You will Know. He Gives Great Joy.

    Dear Toni; There is so much today going wrong! It all makes you want to cry and just shake your head in utter disbelief. When we were first saved, and began reading and hearing about the end times; we could try and imagine; but now that we see all the restraint being taken away, it just horrible beyond words. But we have HIS WORDS! and HERE IS THE PATIENCE AND THE FAITH OF THE SAINTS! >Psalm 37<

    Here is how I feel about this verse in this day and age. I read it and say to myself what think about this verse if there were no verse before nor after it. Be ye angry, yes I am angry the way this world is today. Jesus Christ died on the cross for all our sins and if he would not have we would all continue to sin and go straight to hell when we die, no chance for heaven nor eternity. Let no the sun go down upon your wrath, No, I will not let the Sun go down upon my anger regarding the way this world is today, I know Satan is always around me however, he cannot touch me as long as my Father Creator is around me always. Satan is not my Father nor Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ is and of whom I will always pray too. We as human have complicated the most simple things. One Father, One Son and One Holy Ghost, AMEN TO THAT. Whomever may send me a negative response to my comment, Does not bother me that just causes more anger which I know how to ignore. Thank You
