Why is there so much division in the church? We Haven't Followed The Rules! Let's read the Bible and use it as a guideline in life and our faith. Division between Christian would disappear and everything will fall in place.
So true - A Christian leader is empowered by God to empower others. Good Biblical case with example on how a Christian leader should lead others in the ministry.
Scripture references on Bible reading.
Clarifies the definition of repentance with plenty of scriptural references
Tangle.com - formally GodTube.com. Well done professional site. I like the idea that Tangle.com is reaching out to Christians and non-Christians and re-casting itself as a social media company. I would like to see a profession of faith.
From the page: "All us at one time or another have wanted to file a complaint against some monolith organization that we have felt has done us wrong. The problem was that we did not know how to file a complaint or we felt there was no hope we would get any satisfaction. Now with Twitter there is hope."
Truth is so hard to find on the internet. Worst yet, not too many are seeking truth, nor know truth when they see it.
Who can find a virtuous women?
From the page: "Proverbs 31 is traditionally thought to be only for women. But it is not. It was written to a man, and a King at that. Men, this book is for you, especially if you are a leader, and even more so, if you are a single person looking to be married some day. In a nutshell, it says to find a woman that fears God. Anyone else will bring you trouble."
Many experts believe that two to three percent of all cell phones are wiretapped where spyware software is monitoring cell phone activities and even monitoring conversations when the cell phone is not in use.
From the Site, "Don't talk: your cell phone may be eavesdropping. Thanks to recent developments in "spy phone" software, a do-it-yourself spook can now wirelessly transfer a wiretapping program to any mobile phone. The programs are inexpensive, and the transfer requires no special skill. The would-be spy needs to get his hands on your phone to press keys authorizing the download, but it takes just a few minutes--about the time needed to download a ringtone."
Though we are impotent against natural forces such as storms, earthquakes, and ocean waves, we have free will and nature does not.
Jeremiah 5:22-23, "Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? But this people ..."
From the page: "The question of free will is whether, and in what sense, rational agents exercise control over their actions and decisions."
Find interesting facts about the Bible as well as enjoyable quotes and suggestions on how best to read the Bible.
From the page: "Men do not reject the Bible because it contradicts itself, but because it contradicts them."
Reflects on where we are today and where we are going in regard to evangelism.
From the page: "Books that over the last 50 years have altered the way American evangelicals pray, gather, talk, and reach out, not books that merely entertained."
Stirs up provoking thought and discussion about the movie Angels and Demons.
From the web site, "Westminster Theological Seminary's web site, TheTruthAboutAngelsAndDemons.com joins Westminster's already well recognized web site TheTruthAboutDaVinci.com. Both seek to present a balanced assessment of Dan Brown's narratives, the historical data, and the philosophy set forth in his best-selling novels and movies. These are not "boycott" sites, which tell people to avoid the movies or books, or "rebuttal" sites whose only purpose is to oppose fact with fact. Our aim is to follow the injunction of the apostle Peter, who instructed the church to be prepared to "make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you... yet with gentleness and respect" (1 Peter 3:15-16)."
Discover God and Christianity through pictures and words. Well designed site for delivering the message of Jesus Christ.
From the page: "God has a higher purpose for our lives"
Compassion is not based on compromise, but based on unselfish love, being non-judgmental, and having mercy for others.
From the page: "Paul resembles the type of man we should be in our modern culture: confronting the culture, recognizing common ground, and calling people to Jesus Christ. Paul was not hateful nor unloving but he was uncompromising in his doctrine. Instead of calling people to compassion we should call people to Jesus in a loving manner."
Questioning the harsh punishment for Islamic apostates. An apostate is defined as "a disloyal person who betrays or deserts his cause or religion or political party or friend etc." Historically Islamic scholars have had consensus that a person found to be an apostate should be beheaded.
This article and the whole argument about beheading apostates I find disconcerting. The main reason that this is disconcerting is that I can only conclude from this article that true believers of Islam must believe that beheading apostates is a righteous act.
I find from my Christian faith that it is best to leave judgment to God (as we humans make a lot of bad judgments). Instead of judging people we should be proclaiming God's truth. See what the Bible says about judging others ...
From the page: "'The view that Islamic scholars of the past had different views on how to punish apostates is incorrect. They only disagreed on how soon apostates should be executed; should it be done in three days, one week or few months. The waiting time is left to the discretion of the ruler,' said Muhammad Al-Nujaimi, a professor at the Higher Institute of Law in Riyadh."
Debating Christianity with Muslins at Hyde Park's Speaker's Corner.
From the page: "On a gray sunday afternoon at the famous Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, London, a turbaned man jabs his finger into the chilly air as he preaches to 200 people crowded around him. Two followers behind him clutch poles supporting a banner emblazoned with Arabic script. Its translation: "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger." Fifty feet away, another crowd gathers around Jay Smith, a quick-thinking, controversial evangelical known for debating Muslims. He uses chapters (surahs) from the Qur'an as his principal text"
Seven deadly sins personified by the seven castaways of Gilligan's Island. Though the Seven Deadly Sins are not listed formally in the Bible, it is ingrained in our culture. They originated in early church and Catholic teachings. The Seven Deadly Sins are lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride.
From the page: "In fact, what seemed to be perfectly disarming, if somewhat frustrating, situation comedy was a representation of a Sartre-like nether-world in which the characters represent the Seven Deadly Sins, forced in the days after Armageddon (in the form of the Flood) to live in unceasing torment with each other."
Viewing temptation from an economic viewpoint. We would rather have less NOW than waiting for more later. We would rather pay less now, and then pay more later. Funny illustration of the sister with good intentions that gets overwhelmed by temptation.
From the page: ""You would not eat Gloria's Chompo bar, would you?" asks her father, anxiously. "It is not Gloria's yet," replies Frances, but her reply is muffled because she is already chewing on Gloria's bubblegum."
