    ok i guess ill post some of my understandings of scripture

    all of us deserve hell

    but God was so merciful he sent Jesus to pay a price so high
    it can cover any sin ever made by all men and women

    when we have faith in him
    its not dead faith

    God sends a call to all and reveals to us that Jesus is the way
    and those who accept this are given a new heart
    after this
    the things we once took pleasure in
    now hurt us to do
    and we feel conviction to turn from them

    if we grow in the word and continue to follow Jesus and seek Gods will for us
    this is practicing righteousness

    we start to turn from sin

    like swearing
    vengence
    masterbation
    fornication
    false idols (sports,games, movies)

    and it becomes not a burden
    but a joy when we overcome sin through christ who strengthens us

    i believe it is possible to walk holy as Job did

    but this isnt what earns salvation
    it shows our fruit


    i think God preserved his Word
    and the bible is meant to be taken literally

    (unless its obvious hyperbole)

    i was such an awful sinner i dont know if i am ready to give a full testimony as of now

    i only accepted Jesus as my savior less than 4 years ago

    and only had a burning passion to study the Word as of maybe 2 years ago

    to avoid my first post being too long winded

    ill stop here im sorry for poor grammer
    im on a phone and have rhino like skin on my fingers from workin with metal

    thoughts?
    opinions?
    scripture to show me i need correction?


    thanks for taking the time
    i have high hopes for fellowship
    i only study the Word i dont go to church

    Welcome Brother Rehab to this Christian fellowship in Jesus' name. That not only is great introduction, but a wonderful testimony. Thanks, and now in my opinion continue to grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen. (2 Pet 3:18).

    Blessings in Christ Jesus. :wave2

    Yeah, welcome Brother. Sounds like you have a real good handle on it. We're all at different places in our walk with Jesus, and all struggle. That's what makes fellowship good! :yes
    Praise the Lord! :woot2

    thanks man
    i still feel like a babe in spirit to be honest

    God has shown so much to me in just a couple years

    its a lot like the world i lived in was an illusion or a dream

    and like an alarm clock God woke me up even though i was comfortable in my sleep

    at first i was tryin to hit snooze

    then stumbling around with clouded vision knowing i have stuff to do trying to rush to get ready

    now im awake... but still need a coffee (his Word) to get me through the morning (life)

    haha
    sorry if that was a bad analogy
    i can do better

    I can identify with comparing the need for coffee (or even oxygen) with the need for His Word, Rehab! I need our Lord to get through each and every day.

    Hey, Lil Buddy,

    It looks like we are going to have some good conversations over here, too.

    I like to use the analogy I feel like Abraham (because I do!) Go over here...not why not how, nothing. Just go. So I did. Not only that but I have a thorn in the flesh too. He did that to me so I have to depend on Him, no other way. God's full of surprises. He's answered prayers for me, but not how I thought He would!. That taught me not to tell Him how I want prayers answered. Just ask and that's it. The more I learn the less I know, lol...

    Hi Rehab,

    Great introduction.
    Great testimony.

    You'll find very nice persons here who like to share the word of God.
    And when we don't agree on something, we still love and respect each other.

    I believe you'll like it here.
    Welcome!
    See you around...

    P.S. You may not think so, but you sound like a very mature Christian!!
