    Boy who claimed he went to heaven recants

    Hi Kathi, Set aside the motivations for writing the book, I think this example highlights how many people are curious about religion or faith. It's an important example of the flaws of man thinking they are going to find any reliable information about God, Heaven outside of the Bible. Also, the...

    Death: Punishment or Grace?

    Hi StoveBolts, Most recently, for the first time in my life, I had thoughts of welcoming death. It's amazing what a batch of suffering can enable you to do. Perhaps because of my shortsightedness, I experienced a lot of pain when contemplating the actuality of my death. It wasn't for what I...

    [__ Prayer __] recovery from severe mental illness

    Hi Christ_empowered, As much distaste as I have for trials and difficulties, I believe that we all face what I like to call our waterloo. Even after coming to Jesus, the life long struggle to die to self and allow Christ to live in us is a great difficulty. I can't imagine what it's like to be...

    [__ Prayer __] Forgiveness

    Thanks AirDancer, I prayed a short prayer for my father-in-law last night. It seems a weak prayer is all I can put together these days. So, I appreciate your prayers and those at CFNET. - Davies

    [__ Prayer __] Forgiveness

    Thank you Christ_empowered, I appreciate your prayers. It's difficult for me these days to spend much time thinking on these things. Being physically tired, I find myself trying to avoid it, but I see God's grace in you and the others who have encouraged me. - Davies

    [__ Prayer __] Forgiveness

    Thanks guys for your encouragement. I will pray for my father-in-law, and let the good times role. I'll try to take it a day at a time, and not worry about tomorrow. God has always been good to me. It's my own foolishness that I worry about. My propensity to ignore good, straight forward advice...

    [__ Prayer __] Forgiveness

    Hello, Last month, I was diagnosed with lung cancer, a shocking sight to look at the x-ray and see all these pretty blooms growing everywhere in your chest. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with throat cancer which has likely metastasized. I do fear the pain that may accompany my final days...

    Idioms

    Hello, My nine year old daughter saw what I was doing and drew this picture to illustrate the idiom, 'that was a piece of cake.'

    Hi Kathi, I couldn't remember any off the top of my head, so I looked up one and found, 'that was a piece of cake.' - Davies

    Thoughtful considerations

    Good evening, I hope to be more mature in a short time soon. I having a sneaking suspicion that mature Christians are born out of adversity, and I don't mean the type where you have your car keyed. I believe when are life is threatened, or by some supernatural means, we can understand the...

    Is there anywhere in the Bible that Jesus Freely gave material needs to the poor?

    Hi 4afaithfulone, It is interesting that many things that Jesus and the disciples did are not recorded, but I find it funny that you would say there is nothing in Bible that says that Jesus did not give material needs freely. I would point you to Matthew 6:25-34New King James Version (NKJV) ...

    Thoughtful considerations

    Hello, I've seen childish behavior in myself and in people much older than I, and most of the time it's very inappropriate and sinful. I think we know what it's like to have child like faith, but even then there comes a time when we have to grow beyond just the milk, and handle the meat. I do...

    What Do Muslims Really Mean When They Invoke The Name Of Jesus?

    Hi childeye, I've talked with enough Muslims to understand that they will pay for their sins when they pass into the next life, and at best if there good deeds weigh enough, they can only hope that Allah (I do not equate Allah with God) will be merciful. It is a works based religion. Muslims do...

    What Do Muslims Really Mean When They Invoke The Name Of Jesus?

    Hi childeye, I understand what you're saying here is that Muslims consider Muhammad as 'Eternal Truth' and the Koran God's message, but I hope you're able to see that because the Bible and the Koran support different messages, they both can't be valid. So, it really doesn't matter if we know...

    What Do Muslims Really Mean When They Invoke The Name Of Jesus?

    Hi tinykitten, I automatically see political expediency and not a body of persons interested in truth. Human nature on display for all of us to see. Merry Christmas, - Davies

    Exodus (the film)

    Hello, I was wondering if it is really difficult for Christians to put together a quality film with quality actors? Perhaps we just don't have the funds or maybe most of the talented actors are afraid to act in a film that is faithful to the Bible. I saw a quick excerpt of an interview with...

    [__ Prayer __] I am requesting prayer

    Hi Jesse, I don't know what you like or not, but I like to try and sing Hymns. I normally consider pain as God's megaphone to come to Him. If you can see how God's grace is given or being given, I imagine you will have a better day than most. - Davies
