    Hello after several months away from this forum

    Thank you for asking. I was busy trying to widen my web presence to include non Christian audiences. A more or less exhaustive list of my online involvement can be consulted under Christian Forums and Social Networks I am involved in. Among those you will find Quora for example, where aspects...

    Jesus' Teachings

    In light of the above quote, I'd suggest to those following the present thread, that you have a look at the summary posts I published elsewhere under Daisy Petal Christianity as I interacted with Wayne Jacobsen’s free book He loves me! (pdf), from LifeStream.org.

    Jesus' Teachings

    Hello, I'm not sure how to approach this theme. I became a Christian 40 years ago now, with a major turnaround in my life due to my turning to God and obeying His ways. In those first few years, a retired pastor that I was trying to preach the Gospel to on the street, told me: some people think...

    Hello after several months away from this forum

    Hello, I have not visited this forum for almost a year now, and I see that some important changes have taken place. First, I'd like to mention that the forum software seems to be new, at least I don't remember that you had XenForo before, and better integrated with the main site. But what is...

    Growth Overcoming Doubt?

    Do we allow some of our modes of reasoning to suppress faith from our lives? Why not ask God to help us find ways of countering doubts about the faithfulness of His promises? This article may be consulted in its original trilingual context (English, Spanish, French): Overcoming Doubt? at Savoir...

    Growth By Strength or by the Spirit?

    Hello Apousía, Thank you for responding to this thread. Allow me to rephrase in such a way as to avoid any unintended connotations related to the use of «require»: «What circumstances of your life would be helped by trusting in the Lord [...]?» Please note that the intent of my question is to...

    Growth By Strength or by the Spirit?

    «Then he [the angel, Zechariah 4:1] said to me [the prophet Zechariah], "This is what the Lord says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of Heaven's Armies. Nothing, not even a mighty mountain, will stand in Zerubbabel's way; it will become a level...

    Should a Christian confess and repent theirs sins?

    The First Episle of John is all about living in the light, which means (1) knowing who Christ is and what He has done for us as He died on the cross and rose from the dead, (2) loving one another, and (3) obeying God's commandments. The OP asked if we needed to confess our sins and repent from...

    Who is the AntiChrist?

    After I posted in this thread on July 22, it came to my mind that the Spirit of Christ that abides in us is stronger and greater than any spirit that opposes Christ. This is of encouragment to me when I consider issues that I have no control over, or when my kins asks me to pray for them, and I...

    Bible Study WELCOME TO AN IN DEPTH STUDY OF MATTHEW'S GOSPEL.

    Hello, I'd like to suggest the following questions, if I may, to get this thread moving again, based on Matthew 16:24-27 : How do our past life (before we knew God) relate to our present life (now that we know God) ? How do our present life (having lived for Christ a number of years) relate to...

    Most that claim scripture only, are not.

    Hello Mike, If I hear you right, you are saying that we should not try to make the Bible fit into whatever secular paradigm currently dominates the scene because when they move on, we are left with our arguments hanging in mid-hair. I guess I misread your postings, not understanding the...

    Most that claim scripture only, are not.

    You're right. I agree. What I meant was the first christian writers after the New Testament had been written. They are not authoritative writings, but they help us validate important points, and is thus useful to know. God bless.

    Who is the AntiChrist?

    Paloma, I don't want to take a stand right now on the issue of whether there will be an antichrist in the future, I tend to think there will be. But I do want to support the idea that whether or not there will be such a person, there are now also people who are opposing Christ and are against...

    Most that claim scripture only, are not.

    Hello Rollo, Mike and Reba, Thank you for what you all shared. I'd like to build on Mike and Reba's, using their posts as building blocks for mine. And, true enough, Rollo, there are some information that comes from history that we don't really need to have. Yet here is the additional point...

    Bible Study WELCOME TO AN IN DEPTH STUDY OF MATTHEW'S GOSPEL.

    I've been there too, and for several years, with a despondent spirit. I kept going to Church and being involved in a very supportive small group of our Church, but I was broken in spirit. My wife and the people there kept reminding me that they believed I would come through, that there was more...

    Bible Study WELCOME TO AN IN DEPTH STUDY OF MATTHEW'S GOSPEL.

    My dad is a decade or so older than you are and reports his frustration when he receives that type of answer from his doctors: Mr. Garneau, don't worry about such and such an ailment that you have, at your age it is normal. In a sense this might be true but in another sense no one likes to be...
