    Anyone on here play videogames?

    Yes, I started playing Quake on line with a 28.8 modem a long time ago. I loved that game and the virtual world. After Quake I, II & III I switched to online poker and played almost every day for 6 years and quit. Have not played in almost 2 years even though its legal in NJ. I will go back to...

    The Holy Spirit?

    “If you want to be honored, you must be humble” (Proverbs 15:33).

    The Holy Spirit?

    If I may. It would seem to me that's all the more reason to start the new day with prayer, making a sort of offering of our daily duties in secret to the Father i.e. carrying our daily cross and ending the day with self examination in prayer, laying our sins, shortcomings and burdens at the...

    Chuck Missler accused of plagiarism

    These days it seems pep's thirst for knowledge is insatiable, less they forget: Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

    Dishydrotic Eczema: The battle between youthful energy and angony

    I will pray for your recovery. Until the symptoms dissipate you need to think short term and follow your doctor’s advice. I would definitely wear gloves when working on anything that will get on your hands i.e. grease, tar, anything petroleum because it tends to go into your skin. Never ever...

    Can I ask a serious question? :(

    I will pray for your discernment and I suggest you ask God from deep in your heart the same question.

    What exactly is Grace.

    I was taught Grace is God sharing His Divinity with us. Philippians 2 5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant...

    Short answer - Will I go to hell If I get a tattoo?

    I say no, don't do it. Thanks for asking. 1 Cor. 6:19-20 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

    Another challenge.

    My guess all the 11 Apostles are commissioned in acts 1: 8 But ye shall receive power, when the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

    The Message to the Church at Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13)

    Mattfivefour, Thanks for this. This is great and so very obvious you put a lot of thought into it. I had a thought after reading this. It went like this. We all know how Philadelphia is the birthplace of the USA and the the USA isn't mentioned in the later biblical prophecy like it...

    Pope Francis Says Atheists Who Do Good Are Redeemed, Not Just Catholics

    What Francis said is "The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ” He knows that free gift is available to all sinners. He said that even sinners & non-believers can do good works. It shouldn't be twisted around and added to. BTW: Matthew 7:8 For every one that...

    Rev 3:10 Is it the Rapture & relevant today?

    Hi Daniel, The verses meant for the Angel of the Church in Philadelphia seem to me as being self fulfilling in that the open door, is the message, from the Divine with assurance He will deal with the wolves in sheep clothing pretending to be true believers in no uncertain terms (they will...

    Rev 3:10 Is it the Rapture & relevant today?

    Tks Morata, I agree with you in that I don't think the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth has come & gone just yet. Tks Mattfivefour, You covered a lot of ground. You kind of put the angel of the church at Philadelphia as in...

    Rev 3:10 Is it the Rapture & relevant today?

    Hello brothers & sisters in Christ Jesus, I'm new here & making my first post. Does anybody here think this verse is relevant today? Who are these Angels of the 7 Churches? Are they Angels or men with a message? Rev 3:10 - Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep...
