    Bible Study The Grieving Heart of God / The Anger of God

    Animals have no sin nature, If they are mean, they have been trained that way. God is visible every day, many can not see Him because they are not looking for Him. The world says about war and evil men, how could God allow that...He doesn't, It is men who allow it.

    Bible Study The Grieving Heart of God / The Anger of God

    Hi Tessa, The love of God in His creation (apart from people) is evident daily. I Have seen an owl and a kitten grow up together and become the best of friends. I have seen a blackbird raise a baby kitten that they even shared their food together after the kitten matured. I saw a Fawn and a...

    [__ Prayer __] My wife Nancy passed away today.

    I know the Hurt is deep, but it does not go away quickly. It is Good the family is together, and that is some comfort, but there will be days when you are by yourself that you will go over in your mind the things you went through together as one. You will weep often, but you will meet again...

    Bible Study how do you debate the lovley atheists

    Hi Randy, Catholicism has a different belief system and practices than protestants. You can't be born again and then claim to be an atheist. And it's no wonder, Satan can pass himself off as an angel of light to the nominal Christian. Born again believers are a small body compared to the...

    Bible Study how do you debate the lovley atheists

    Hi Bull, I have found that not to be true. Many unbelievers who associate with moral and God loving people, will say they are good people...yet not associate it or credit it to God. What is worse is those who called themselves Christians, treated me worse than the average Joe. And after they...

    Bible Study My Kingdom is not of this World. John 18:36

    Are you telling me you never have sinned since you have been saved, and had to ask for forgiveness? Or do you walk in your own understanding, quoting Scripture? Satan quoted Scripture to Jesus, and it was true Scripture, but it was not applicable or in love, but deceit.

    Bible Study My Kingdom is not of this World. John 18:36

    Bible Study The Flesh

    Of all the enemies of the Church (Satan and the world), The FLESH is the WORST!. While both Satan and the World are terrible enemies, always challenging the Christian life, It is the FLESH that is the Christians greatest enemy according to God's word. NOTICE! "For the flesh lusteth (fights)...

    Bible Study My Kingdom is not of this World. John 18:36

    You have misunderstood the Scripture, We are not under Law, but Grace. During the time of the Hasmonian Dynasty, The Jews would not fight on Sunday to keep the Law....that group of people were destroyed by the enemy by trying to obey the law that was not intended in that situation. God does...

    Hi Love, The Kingdom has both of these. The kingdom will have a war to end all wars During Armageddon. (Rev. 19:7-21). But there will always be a boundary (Rev. 21:1-27)

    In John 18:36, The word "world" means "cosmos" (Gr. kosmos). It means the order or arrangement of the earth, including it's inhabitants (morality). In other words the principles it is governed under, and it's curse (Rom. 8:18-25). When Christ said, "His Kingdom is not of this world" (John...
