Gays and suicide

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Gays and suicide

by Joshua Arnold

Suicide attempts are significantly more common in the LGBT community than with heterosexuals (3 times more likely with the LGBT youth than with the heterosexual youth), and many in the LGBT community would like to blame heterosexual culture for this, saying that society bullies and shames them. They would like to find a reason outside of themselves for the frequent triggering of suicide in their community. Read the rest of this entry

The grace of God

Here is something I read on Facebook.

The grace of God

by Joshua Arnold

Sometimes our heads get so clouded by our circumstances and failures that we lose sight of the grace that God has worked into us, and in poor judgment we conclude that we have no grace at all, and never did in the first place.
This is cruel, and this is foolish.

We become like a person that’s tearing their house apart to find their phone, all while their phone is in their hand the whole time. Just because they didn’t see it, it doesn’t mean they didn’t have it. Read the rest of this entry

Falling into sin

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Falling into sin

by Joshua Arnold

Falling into sin at times during my walk has been one of the most miserable experiences of my life. I abhor it, and can’t believe how much carnality is settled at the bottom of my heart, never going noticed until I am hit and shook, and suddenly all of that sediment at the bottom of my heart clouds the whole heart like a glass that had muck at the bottom, and then clouds all the water after it is shaken. I see all that hidden sin that never showed itself when everything was going smooth. Read the rest of this entry

Rainbow colors

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Rainbow colors

by Levi Smith

Rainbow colors are out in full force this month as our country exalts sexual sin.

But the flaunting of these colors doesn’t make me angry. It actually gives me hope.

You see, those colors represent the long suffering, merciful promise of God to a sinful people. It is Heaven’s signal that God forgives and gives grace!! Read the rest of this entry

Unconditional love

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Unconditional love

by Zach Whitsel

“Who loves me today that wouldn’t love me tomorrow if I changed?” I started asking myself that question back when my eyes first started opening to the differences between ritual religion and simple faith. The question provoked my life so deeply that I even started proposing it to Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons in my path. It’s a big question that leads to an even bigger one.

Why do you do what you do? Read the rest of this entry

Moses and Aaron

God appeared to Moses and told him he was chosen to lead the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt.  Moses was reluctant to undertake this assignment and began raising objections.  He began by asking why he had been chosen for the job.

But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”  (Exodus 3:11)

Limiting the grace of God

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Limiting the grace of God

by Joshua Arnold

I can’t count how many Christians fall into sin and sit and wallow in it miserably, and end up sinfully discouraging themselves in their walk, simply because they limit the grace of God.

They entangle their souls by limiting the love and grace of God. It is as though they refuse to believe that God is as forgiving as He says He is. They act as though God reluctantly forgives people with an unwilling willingness, as if He loses glory by forgiving people. Read the rest of this entry

From drug dealer to Christian

Here is something I read on Facebook.  It is the testimony of a former drug dealer who is now a Christian.

***

The first time I was ever arrested, I was 16, and it was because my friends and I went into Walmart, and stole some things. I was actually the only person that didn’t steal anything, but I knew what was going on.

Two years later, at 18 years old, I was arrested on a felony assault charge. It was an automatic felony charge, because the person I hit suffered a broken bone, and apparently when a bone is broken, it is an automatic felony. It was dropped to attempted assault, because I had several witnesses that saw the other person assault me first. Plus I only hit the person one time, and so it wasn’t seen as a malicious act from me.

WHO IS JESUS!

Here is something I read on Facebook.

WHO IS JESUS!

by Lester Peoples

We cannot say Was, because Jesus Christ is Still who he Ever Was, and will Be forever; for man to devote the Praise and to Glorify the One who is worthy, and who bought and paid for each and every human being on planet earth! [With His Own very life’s blood] He is the heavenly Fathers Son whom GOD consented by love, allowed Jesus to leave his throne in Glory to join mankind on earth to redeem man to the position he lost by Lucifer’s lie to the first man, Adam, in the garden. The Father has given His (Jesus), name to be above All other names both in heaven and earth whereby we must be saved, in belief on His name. At this, Jesus was given All Power, and most of all; Authority over All things! The Heavenly Father judges no man, but has given Jesus his Son, that privilege. Spoken three times.

Day of prayer for President Trump

Here is something I read on Facebook

Day of prayer for President Trump

by Franklin Graham

Along with 250+ Christian leaders, I am asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2, as a special day of prayer for the President, Donald J. Trump.

President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God. Read the rest of this entry

Bad churches

Bad churches

by Zach Whitsel

You know how if you ever get sick after eating something, you just can’t seem to stomach that same kind of food again for a while? That’s how I am with religion. I have an aversion to it. The thoughts of going in a church full of traditions and dress clothes to listen to churchy rhetoric makes me feel anxiety. I’m not joking at all. Read the rest of this entry

Sin

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Sin

by Joshua Arnold

You grieve over sin. But you need to rejoice that you even grieve over sin. There was a time when you didn’t.

You have no peace because of your sin. But you need to be at peace over the fact that you do not have peace with your sin. There was a time when you didn’t.

You are troubled by your sin, but doesn’t the thought of not being troubled by your sin trouble you even more? Does the thought of waking up one day with a full blown reprobate mind terrify you? Read the rest of this entry

Offending people

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Offending people

If I profess with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not professing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christianity.

Good mothers

Good Mothers

by Joshua Arnold

Our good Lord ordained for there to be mothers for His glory. I’m so very thankful for the person my Lord chose in eternity past to be my mother. I thank God for her life.

Jesus Christ is the Lord of Glory. He is the Author of it, and a thing is only as glorious as Christ can be seen in it. The more Christ is seen in a thing, the more glorious it is. Read the rest of this entry

Baptists and Catholics

Baptists and Catholics

by Levi Smith

I implore you to take a moment to read these thoughts….👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

For as much as some Baptists crush the Catholic Church, they sure have adopted a lot of their methods.

• Catholics believe in papal authority, which declares that the Pope has full, divine power over the Church and can exercise this power unhindered.
• There are Baptists that believe that their Pastor holds full, perfect, authoritative say so over all things spiritual and can exercise his power unhindered.

 A conversation with the Muslim about eternal joy.

by Joshua Arnold

Muslim: Allah is the one true god, and only he can bless a man with eternal joy in Heaven.

Christian: So you must believe that allah has had infinite joy from eternity past, right?

Muslim: Absolutely!

A conversation with the downcast person who is uncertain of his salvation

Here is something I read on Facebook.

 A conversation with the downcast person who is uncertain of his salvation

by Joshua Arnold

Downcast: I’m afraid that I’m not saved.

Reply: Why is that? Is it because you reject the Gospel? If so, then you should be very afraid.

Downcast: No! I embrace the Gospel. I am just afraid that I have deceived myself, and that I am nothing more than a professor of saving faith, and not a possessor of saving faith. Read the rest of this entry

Is the United States a Christian nation?

Is the Unites States a Christian nation?  The best way to answer that question is to look at what is happening in America and then compare that with what the Bible says.

In Roe v Wade the Supreme Court ruled that any woman who was pregnant had a right to end the pregnancy by aborting her baby.  The Bible calls children a blessing from God. Read the rest of this entry
