Re: The Sin of Worry?

Hi CThomas, I think you make a good point. Maybe Jesus' words there are like an exhortation, possibly comparable to Pauls, "Be angry but do not sin". In my own life I've worried, Jesus' words encourage me. I've tried to think this worry issue through before and came to the conclusion that worry, anx...

Prayer Request For My Ailing Sister

My dear sister is experiencing pain on top of pain. Beth is a chronic back pain sufferer (6 surgeries) and now is dealing with some kind of nerve pain in her foot that causes severe sensitivity to touch along with an intense burning sensation. My heart breaks for her. She leans on God as much as she...

Got another copy of Steve Gregg's book

I finished reading the Bible last week and was wondering what to read. I read some of my notes in successive days, then what? Well I've been wanting another copy of "Revelation- Four Views- A Parallel Commentary", I gave my first copy to a Futurist Bible teacher (after reading it) as I really though...

Re: Does God want us to do theology?

Hi all, morbo3000 asked, "Does God want us to do theology?" The first verse that comes to my mind is: Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. (NASB) Also I'm thinking, I want to know God so that I can better please Him. Theology mea...

Re: my internet down

Hi John, Thank you for the reply, and bringing relevance to the situation biblically. Yeah, while the "network" was down I leaned even more on the Lord. I look forward to, and am grateful for what He is doing next. I checked in Strong's there are 10 notations for, network(s), nice catch. God bless y...

Re: Theodicy

Hi Matthew, you wrote, "I don't think that what some people refer to as 'annihilation*' requires any activity on God's part. People are mortal. God lovingly attempts to connect people to deity, one result of such a connection being shared immortality. When someone rejects connection with God long en...

Re: Is Repentance A Work?

Hi Othniel, I am thinking the answer to your question lies in James 2:18-26 where he explains how his faith is proven by his works. Luke 3:8 has John the baptist saying to "bring forth fruits worthy of repentance" So, IF bringing forth fruits is a work, and to me it sounds like it is (I'm ready to b...

Re: New Trouble Scrolling And Pointing etc.

Jarrod, wow! All my problems surfing this site have disappeared. Though I hate to be the cause of you n' others not having "snow". If you turn the snow back on I will understand. If I get a better phone that, presumably, could handle the snow I'll let you know. Oddly,, I was in Houston like 25 yrs a...

Re: New Trouble Scrolling And Pointing etc.

Backwoodsman, Jeremiah, Thanks for your info. I unchecked Javascript though I wasn't seeing any snow on MY phone (3G blackberry Curve 8530 wt. Virgin Mobile). I didn't notice any difference, but now as I'm typing this there is no lag in the letters appearing after I key them, cool, maybe something h...
