  • Joyce Butler for verse 22
    I have been having very intrusive sinful thoughts. I have prayed and prayed. Sometimes I wonder where is GOD for me! I don't even have assurance of salvation or heaven anymore. Can someone pray for me or help me to understand?
  • @ Joyce B. Many are going through varied pains and suffering, both mental and physical, from sinful thoughts to losing faith and having to struggle to regain who we want to be in having a close or closer relationship with God. The great upheaval in the world right now is causing fear and confusion among so many. Sometimes, as humans it is easier to run away from reality into dark corners to seek solace, only to fail and fall.

    Sincere advice. Seek council of a trusted 'bible based' pastor. (they can talk on the phone or email, if you can not leave your house) Be honest about what you are dealing with, so they can pray with you and give firm council. Rid yourself of anything in your house that is causing this trouble/temptaion and do not turn it on again, buy it again, etc. Once it's gone, let it be gone. If your health is good, consider fasting for a few days and stay in prayer. Talk with God, so you are not alone when these thoughts come to trouble your heart. Walk, exercise, clean.

    God Bless and prayers are with you.
  • Althea for verse 14
    Is using profanity considered a sin
  • The Bible says a lot about the tongue- watching what we say. If even non-Christians think profanity is wrong, how much more should Christians watch their tongue and not use profanity, because Christians are supposed to be a light and good example to the world. Link
  • Mickey for verse 14
    It's called an unclean spirit. When our guard is down and we hear too much worldly input; it squishes out of us. Ask forgiveness from everybody who heard it. It's spiritual warfare. Put on that helmet of salvation :)
    I go on YouTube and watch some Mario Murillo sermons. You'll feel better.
  • Church for verse 14
    From a religious viewpoint, swearing or cursing is generally considered sin. The main reason swearing is considered sin is because it reflects evil intent coming from one's heart, rather than merely the content of the word that is spoken. From a Christian perspective, swearing and cursing is not limited to just verbal expressions

    Bob Hilt you are right. Check this out; Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel." Notice he didn't say God's gospel. HIS gospel? Acts 16:28-31, Paul has the opportunity to tell this man what it takes to be save. Luke 18:18-25. Jesus has the opportunity to tell this man. Hey wait until they kill me and believe on my blood and you shall be save. Paul teaching is difference from Jesus Christ. God greater then Jesus! St John 14:28 Romans 8:11and St John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing- Rev22:12-14 St John 17:4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do." Psalms 72:17-18 Read and compare. Ty

    Verse 8 God has never lied in order for good to come. Nobody sent him to the gentile. He went on his own. Like i said he disobeyed
  • Victor
    Verse 7 Paul admits he's lying. Why should anyone believe him. You are a sinner because of your lies. Matter of fact he disobeyed?
  • Bob Hilt
    Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
    2 Peter 3:15 - And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul (BELOVED BROTHER PAUL) also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

    2 Peter 3:16 - As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things;
    in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest,
    as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
  • Adam
    Have you ever sinned and/or lied? No one is perfect except Jesus. Of course Paul sinned like everyone else, but he turned from it to follow Jesus. To me it seems presumptious to claim that Paul lied so his books can't be trusted though. Notice it's worded 'If...' which may be a hypothetical and he might mean our lives in general are as a lie since none of us can accurately communicate or portray the Glory of God. These writings are inspired by God and true. Here's a commentary on that verse:rnrnIf our lie, our false life, has thus shown forth his glory, why should we be individually condemned"?
  • Adam
    Dear Victor, thanks for the reply. I replied to your assuming Paul was lying and I replied with points that counter that claim. Your response here seems to be on a variety of different topics which I don't completely understand.

    >Stop praising the man

    Are you talking to me, because I'm not praising a man, are you? You make a claim that Paul was lying and refuting that doesn't mean someone is praising someone if that's what you were assuming.

    >Paul and rest of those boys Changed the truth of God into Lies.

    Now you're making other claims. What 'boys'? What 'lies'? Are you trying to discredit the Bible? If so, how do we know that what you're saying is true and not a lie?
  • Timothy D Bradek
    It's not what we think, just how many times does God have to point that out:.. "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil Proverbs 3:5-7 ." Then Paul quotes God to say: Philippians 1:27-29. And Psalms 51:5.
  • Teri
    All have sinned! That's why the earth was destroyed by the flood. But, Noah found favor...we have found favor in God's mercy and are not justified by The Law or Works, but by FAITH in God's SON v. 25,6! Amen and Amen
  • Robert
    In his very first edition of the bible, Luther inserted "alone" into the infallible word of God, right before the word "faith" in Romans 3:28.
    This particular verse is just one of the many quoted but misunderstood verses that's often used to justify misdeeds. Throughout the bible's pages, many men were deemed righteous such as Job 1:6. In the New Testament we have in the book of Luke 1:5-6 Zachariah and Elizabeth were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
  • Bruce
    Adoniyah: Luke 1:5-6 is Telling Us How The Parents of John Done All Things Blameless in The Old Testament. Same with Job. We are Now Living in The New Testament. We are Free From Most Things in The Old Testament. Christ is Our One Blood Sacrifice for All Who Come to Him. Forever /If You, Me or Anyone Tries to Live Like They Did---- Lake of Fire / We Can Go to The Throne Room Boldly( Hebrews 4:16

    God has put away our sin! He judged Jesus in our place! His wrath has been satisfied and judgement has rendered! All those that believe on His name will be saved! Salvation is a finished work! When Christ sat down at God's right hand we sat down with Him! Our position in Christ is one of rest! Our salvation isn't performance based but rest in His performance!
  • Gayla777
    For the believer, circumcision or the lack of it was a matter of total indifference. What really counted was the faith and obedience that have always characterized covenants between God and humankind.
  • Douglas G Wells
    The bible says their is only one way to make it to heaven. Take that to the bank
  • Tamara
    Amen the all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God none righteous no not one the Jew has to acknowledge the righteousness of God as well as the gentile must have to repent be baptized in Jesus name Acts 2:38 the only way they will see Jesus they have no boasting being a Jew no more the old law makes them righteous but the new law old testament has been demolished.

    As it was in the Kingdom of Heaven so will it be in like manner in the latter days of the Kingdom of God - Acts through Jude. Always the religious people who reject the indwelling Power of our Blessed Lords Holy Ghost which is speaking in Tongues made of the true and genuine Temple without hands unto His Everlasting Glory to come amen indeed. The Kingdom of God is not of this world and never was.
  • Tony Drake
    Faith is the key to unlock the door to heaven.
  • Bobby
    Yes we need to ONLY trust in the blood of Jesus but if while were trusting we seemingly "sin" as life under law would say, we must understand we are no less righteous or worthy of God then we were 10 minutes before we missed God. And that is where the devil is messing with the church and messing them up. Jesus said I wish you were either hot or cold. Don't try to mix law with grace. Your Righteous
  • Charles B Mountain
    Because God's chosen people,the Jews, rejected Christ as the messiah,he opened the the door of salvation to the Gentiles also. We are all one in Christ Jesus,if we believe and are baptized into Christ, according to the plan of salvation, and live our life by his word.Using God's word, as it is written, to govern our lives and guide us,all may experience Christianity and be acceptable.

    Bruce - Of course I knew that, and so does Mike Wms. I agree, it could have been stated better - now that you made me look at it from a different angle. But, the 'main' point of the statement is not the redeeming, but the ecumenical 'reforming' of the world. That's what Ch. Sheldon wanted to do. He just didn't understand 'salvation'.
  • Bruce
    Irene: Christ is The only One who Redeems. Without His Blood there's no Salvation. Verse 24 says: Redemption is in Christ Jesus. The Mission of True Believers is to Tell Others The Way of Salvation. We are The The Only Light in this World of Darkness

    Romans 3:24 - "Our mission is to redeem humanity, not to reform society" -- Mike Williams
