    Are you a Romans 7 man or a Romans 8 man?

    See this is where it gets frustrating for me. I seek consensus and agreement in the body...if I take that approach I am saying that we aren't ever going to be in one accord until Jesus returns. I suppose that is a possibility but my mind/heart are NOT made up that this will necessarily be the...

    Are you a Romans 7 man or a Romans 8 man?

    I am curious if anyone thinks the two are simultaneously at odds with each other and you have to discern the difference and walk accordingly. I think I've seen some say that this is pre-conversion in Romans 7 and converted in Romans 8 but contextually that doesn't make sense to me. Any thoughts?

    Joining the armed forces, is it the christian thing to do?

    In your experience did you ever encounter a time where it presented a conflict of conscience? Also did you notice any changes regarding chaplainship in the military? Thanks for you time. I had a discussion after this thread offline about it and in some instances even if you were an objector...

    Strict

    So I take what I've read so far to mean you want to have a discussion about physical discipline? If so, care to be clear? It would be helpful to further the discussion. I had such discipline employed against me but for the most part, if I didn't perceive I had done anything wrong it was...

    Joining the armed forces, is it the christian thing to do?

    Consider being a chaplain if you have any ministerial leanings. Just know that you would most likely have restrictions that you need to be fully aware of before going that route. Some wouldn't even consider it possible at this point to minister biblically with your hands tied in a lot of ways. I...

    All aboard the “I’m a nobody in this world’s eyes” train

    Umm, if you want to give specifics perhaps there might be more I could assist with but yes I have felt that way myself. If you have a bible around read what Nathan said to David. Pay close attention to each word...there are some things I haven't ever heard discussed about that moment in...

    40, new author, ready to date

    I identify with this lol It is amazing all the various oddments that can be kept in a vehicle...a spare room of sorts. Even when married, I would prefer to have a "utility vehicle" that contains all the essentials. Day at the lake? Check. Snowed in? Check. Forgot food to work? There's peanuts...

    Hi

    Try posting this in a different forum like the family forum or BDF even. Reading scripture will help. A lot of newer believers start with the gospels and read the New Testament, perhaps try that? Just keep it up, resist the devil and he will flee. Sometimes it's a long process. This forum...

    This Corona virus pandemic could be the weapon that takes our liberties away , all in the name of saving lives?

    I am not in favor of a mask mandate. Throwing out random numbers that I've seen "on the internet"... Let's say mask are 25% effective in reducing viral transmission (properly worn) Let's say a vaccine is 25% more effective than a person's natural immune system Is it not likely that a vaccine...

    CAN AN UNTESTED VACCINE BE SAFE

    Fully agree. If they cannot provide this information then get a second opinion. Even if it were something like 1/1,000,000 chance for an adverse reaction to a vaccine vs a 1/100,000 chance for an adverse reaction to the problem the vaccine is to mitigate still I don't have the actual data on...

    This Corona virus pandemic could be the weapon that takes our liberties away , all in the name of saving lives?

    Note: None of this post is in support for/against the subject matter, by the by, just with regard to the "disagree" reaction. I know it frustrates me personally when someone won't tell me why as I feel as though that is less productive. Up to whomever is reading of course, but I figured I'd...

    Let's play Bible Trivia!

    I had Lion dreams sometime when I very young. Except the context included an evil Lion as well. He wasn't chasing me but the evil Lion (which I didn't perceive to be evil at the time, just "kinda bad") was just "in addition to" the overall whole. Kind of complicated but that's how I view some...

    Let's play Bible Trivia!

    What were the dimensions (and specifications) of the ark itself? Are there any accurate modern equivalents? Are we certain of these modern equivalents?

    Let's play Bible Trivia!

    Well in one bible that I rarely read (was going to donate) I found in the 1st Kings reference a footnote after finding out that there were indeed two instances. Jachin (Jachun) "It shall stand" Boaz (Booz) "In strength" Fortunately because I found this footnote, I am inclined to think that...

    Well I'll admit this is rather hard without using an online search. I'll check a few more places ...
