"And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

"The people of Israel kept playing the harlot with other gods and Joshua must have been so moved to tears by their actions and was brought to the state of making the proclamations of the Joshua 24:15. Well on behalf of my family, I join Joshua in proclaiming that me and my family will serve the living God in Jesus name Amen."

"Joshua 24:15 key phrase \"as for me and my house\"! How many homes are guided by this principle in current materialistic American society? Where are the men who will trust in God to do the impossible and give no leeway to corrupting influences? America will be lost if we no longer stand on our nations founding principles and depend on \"societal standards\" rather than the word of God!"
"Hi Jesse, we don't believe the same things. I believe everyone, including Christians, has freewill and there's lots of Biblical support for that like Joshua 24:15, Psalm 119:30. Freewill = voluntary choice. People have the freewill to choose to follow Jesus or not. So, yes our faith and love to God is voluntary. This is why Jesus gave so many warnings and parables about the gate being narrow going to heaven and wide the gate going to destruction. It's why Jesus kept challenging people to avoid sin, to obey and why he said this: John 14:15. If we were predestined robots with no freewill then Jesus likely wouldn't say all that. Instead he'd say everyone is free to do whatever, because it doesn't matter, sin is ok because everyone is going to heaven anyway, but obviously that's not the message. Satan wants everyone to think they don't need to take any action at all as a Christian, but just do nothing. But a Christian is literally a Christ-follower, and following is an action requiring movement in Jesus's direction. The more I read the Bible and the more I pray to God asking for wisdom and understanding in the scriptures the more He reinforces this truth. I'm already aware that some Christians don't believe this and I'm already aware of the points used for that view and I believe its unbiblical. God bless."
"Joshua 24:15. The Holy Spirit just spoke this to my spirit, for you. Click on the link. Stand on it every day. Pray it over your kids. And it's a prayer of faith, so if you have to go sit in your car and BIND satan and his demons from touching your kids; do it. Jesus said whatever you bind in earth, is bound in heaven. What you loose on earth is loosed in heaven. Bind the devils after your kids in Jesus name!! And loose the angels of heaven to surround your kids with protection. Ask the Holy Spirit to be at work in the wills of your children to an awareness of God. This releases YOU to extend kindness and the love of Jesus to your kids. Don't be a pushover. Learn from the gospels how Jesus related to people right where they were. Don't preach; just leave your Bible on a corner table. You're going to release God to enter into their lives. You be His love and Light. If there are any old hurts or unforgiveness over old arguments: now is the time to wipe the slate clean. It's us taking our hands off the necks of people who hurt us or made us angry. If we don't forgive: it hinders Gods intervention. Ok? Let me know how it goes. Lord, go before him and be his rear guard. Guide him with heart, eyes and ears. Amen!"
"You got to make up your mind to give God some time. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15"
"Hello Earl, I am honored that you shared that history of your life with us. Thank you very much. It means a lot. I'm not sure what you mean by "I change my mine because you wont find any prophecies of free will, HELL or heaven; only a KINGDOM." I think you are correct as the statement "free will" is not in the Bible directly. Though several verses that, I believe, point to this are: Joshua 24:15, John 7:17, Galatians 5:13, James 1:13-16. For a couple. The word "hell" has taken over the Hebrew word "sheol" in the OT. Three Greek words "gehenna" "hades" and "tartarus" in the NT. All described as "bad" places simply. For Heaven there are numerous as the one used the most in the NT, hundreds of times, is "ouranos". Strongs definition "the sky; by extension heaven (as the abode of God); by implication happiness power: eternity; specifically the Gospel (Christianity)". In John 3:13, John 3:31. Kingdom used a lot together with this word as in Matthew 6:10, Matthew 18:3. Thanks for your replies Earl. God Bless."
