Suicide

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Suicide

Suicide Scolding

My dear friends, I assure you that the scolding is primarily for me, lest you think this is to be a lecture.

Everyone who has gone through massive and repeated pain and loss has looked at their own life and wondered what it is all for, and if there is any value in continuing when pain seems so inevitable and endless.

Some of us have considered suicide as a way out of pain. Where it is easy to condemn suicide, let us not so easily condemn those of us who are metaphorically seeking to chew our own legs off to escape a trap. Read the rest of this entry

Wicked men

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Wicked men

by Levi Smith

I sat in my 4th grade Sunday School class in Texas, unaware that wicked men were voting my dad out as Pastor of the church.

My mom poked her head into my Sunday School class and motioned for me to come out into the hallway. She gathered the other siblings, we met my dad and we left that church for the last time.

We went to the parsonage. It was there that my parents told us that our time in Graham, Texas was over. We had only been there for just under a year. We were just getting settled. I had finally found the group of friends I could play with on the playground. And now, because of unbiblical men, we had to uproot and move again. Read the rest of this entry

Divorce

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Divorce

by Joshua Agan

Pastor Chet Cooper shared some helpful words that many need to hear:

So many have experienced the tragedy of divorce who never thought it would happen to their marriage. As a Pastor, I have counseled many who could have avoided it if both parties had been committed but when only one was it always failed. Much misinformation abounds within the body of Christ concerning the subject of divorce. One aspect is labeling divorce as sin. God cannot sin and He is divorced! Read the rest of this entry

Judas

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Judas

by Joshua Arnold

Judas mourned more for his sin than most professing Christians do today. Not only did he mourn, but he paid restitution by giving back the 30 pieces of silver. He was deeply convicted of his sin, and did not make any excuses for it like most professing Christians do today. He didn’t say “well, God knows my heart”. He made no excuse for his sin whatsoever. Yet, Judas will be cast into the Lake of Fire. Read the rest of this entry

Is polyamory next?

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Is polyamory next?

by Ken Ham

“Princeton University professor Robert P. George warned in ‘Is Polyamory Next?’ for The American Interest in 2015 that homosexual ‘marriage’ opens the door to marriage that includes more than two persons.”

“‘If gender doesn’t matter for marriage, they ask, why should number matter?’ he asked. ‘If love makes a family,’ as the slogan went when the cause being advanced was gay marriage, then why should their family be treated as second class? Why should their marriage be denied legal recognition and the dignity and social standing that come with it?” Read the rest of this entry

How to support LGBTQ kids

Here is something I read on Facebook.

How to support LGBTQ kids

by Ken Ham

In California, “…teacher[s] would be ordered to undergo training on how to support kids who identify as LGBTQ.”

The best way to support them is to teach them the truth about where they came from—that God created the universe and all life including the first two people, created male and female (Genesis 1:27). And God created the first marriage: one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24). Read the rest of this entry

A heretical church

Here is something I read on Facebook.

A heretical church

by Joshua Arnold

My story of when I was a member of a heretical church.

I’ve had this jersey for nearly a couple years now. It’s a Church of Christ softball league jersey, and it belongs to me. We were allowed to choose the name we wanted, and whatever number was available. I chose Romans 9 for obvious reasons, but there is more to the story than this. Read the rest of this entry

Advice for parents

Advice for parents

by Zach Whitsel

I’ve always been hesitant to give parenting advice but having this fourth one has emboldened me! I feel like I’m ready! I feel like I have some credibility now! So get out your notepads, people, it’s advising time!!!

1. All that stuff you got at your baby shower, and all the rest of that stuff that you bought for your baby off of Amazon, just go ahead and return all of that nonsense. Diapers, wipes, and willpower are all you need! #Relax#NotABabyForever

ARE YOU BAD ENOUGH TO BE SAVED?

Here is something I read on Facebook.

ARE YOU BAD ENOUGH TO BE SAVED?

by Blaine Michael Seman

Peter walked with Christ and he denied Christ with cursing.
The apostle Paul heard Stephen’s last words and approved of his murder.
Manasseh was raised in a godly family and still sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists
John Newton, a self admitted apostate, led others away from the faith.

All the above were saved and changed…but you still think you are too dirty to be saved? Am I right?

Troubling questions

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Troubling questions

by Joshua Agan

Sometimes I get myself into trouble simply for asking questions. Asking a woman her age, her weight, or when she is due are all questions that open one up to trouble!

But some troubling questions are worth asking.

The most troubling question I have found is asked by Jesus in Luke 6:46, where he pointedly asks, “Why do you call me Lord, but do not the things which I say?” Read the rest of this entry

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

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

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

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
