    [__ Prayer __] Spiritual warfare? Prayers appreciated

    I often don’t feel that I’m truly a Christian… Because feelings can be deceptive. It isn’t either or feelings or thought but sometimes… Look to Jesus and Scripture for Absolute Truth and guidance.

    What is the best thing to do when you hate someone?

    I’m getting there. My interpretation of Scripture is that one is to forgive because believers have been forgiven. Different believers have different takes on how forgiveness should play out in various scenarios. I dunno 🤷‍♂️ My problem in doing forgiveness is that I’m labeled and such so I...

    [__ Praise __] (Re)entering society?!?!?!

    Thanks 🙏 Worldly explanations fail. Not because I’m amazingly special but because of Jesus. Truth? The world is sinister and wicked…in often sneaky ways. The college system is part of what destroyed my old life. And now? The old me was destroyed. People who graduated…are largely all the...

    [__ Prayer __] Spiritual warfare? Prayers appreciated

    I think depression is a problem in living and a spiritual problem. Physical components…personally I find vitamin supplements help. Demonic? Satan is real and so are his minions. ThT doesn’t make misery satanic in origin.

    [__ Prayer __] Spiritual warfare? Prayers appreciated

    I was given excessive involuntary shock treatments back in the day. Until Jesus willed restoration a lot of times prayer was about all I could handle.

    Praying 🙏 To be honest? If you cannot read Scripture for whatever reasons, prayer is even more important.

    [__ Praise __] Peaceful life

    I get frustrated. It’s my remaining flesh and the nature of my little corner of a fallen world. So… Overall I have a quiet peaceful life and so much to be thankful way all levels. Today for instance… Good times with mama and her house puppies. Taunting here and there but…yeah good times...

    What do you say Luke 14:31-33 means? I was told I was way off.

    Jesus has overcome the world. We haven’t. Our ultimate victory in Christ is guaranteed but life is full of trouble here on earth. Taking that into account… Will we follow Him?

    What do you say Luke 14:31-33 means? I was told I was way off.

    I think of it more as being realistic to some extent. Opportunities may be lost…even friends and family… Will one still follow?

    What do you say Luke 14:31-33 means? I was told I was way off.

    I always thought it was about real life Christianity… Resources are usually finite. Success is not guaranteed. Things can get difficult. How will one proceed?

    [ Testimony ] Dreams become reality?

    No really. At 38 I find I’m normal not homely not sick or sickly or even patched up… Reconciled to my long suffering parents and in a nice modest place owned by family. I even have a killer view! I’ve written about it for over 10 years here at cfnet. Was I delusional then? Wishful...

    Why do feel we have to market salvation as free? What are we really appealing to in a man?

    I find that people excuse popular teacher’s behavior and actions when they choose to do so.

    Love Your Neighbor as Yourself?

    Self love can be warped by the usual suspects…sin Satan self and the world. But self love is present even if it is in distorted form. So…and I’m stealing this from catholic material…as one grows in Christ proper and appropriate self love helps guide one’s actions.

    Bible Study Can a narcissist be saved?

    I was labeled narcissistic. Severely…I think malignant narcissist? Part of it was my shrink wanted me in prison. Part of it was that I had been prescribed crazy amounts of adderall and various benzodiazepines. And…? I dunno 🤷‍♂️ Now Im 10 years into truly knowing Jesus and I apparently have...
