    Satans demons keep attacking me why?

    No, that was not what I stated before. I expressed concern about 'some of the popular so-called 'spiritual warfare practices'. I did not have actual exorcisms in mind when I wrote that.

    Satans demons keep attacking me why?

    I don't know what you are talking about. This feels like a strawman argument, unless you are talking about Rebecca Brown books. I only read two of those-- most of the second one at least. I had to get them back since I borrowed them through interlibrary loan years ago. I also saw a bit of a...

    Satans demons keep attacking me why?

    So if someone told you that we should use gasoline as hand sanitizer and you explain why that is a bad idea and do not tell them to use alcohol gel your advice is meaningless and they should use gasoline as hand sanitizer? You suggested one needed to go to someone who had a background in the...

    It may help to quote scripture and trust in those words when you do so. The Psalms say, I will trust and not be afraid. You can quote that if you feel afraid. You can go on Bible gateway, type in 'fears or 'afraid, then write encouraging verses on stickinotes and put them on walls and doors...

    Satans demons keep attacking me why?

    It would depend on which book you are talking about. I have heard and read testimonies about people who had been involved in the occult. I don't see, Biblically, while being involved in the occult would make someone better at casting out demons. What matters is that God's grace works through...

    I don't know about that. The Old Testament says not to go to familiars/mediums, and an evil spirit would come upon Saul. If it doesn't spend much time on demons demonizing people that does not mean that it never happened back then. Maybe, though in idolatrous nations, it may be more overt...

    Marriage...expensive or just the wedding?

    It's a cheap time to get married. Just ask a couple of hundred guests to Sype in. You don't have to rent a big facility or feed them. They'll probably understand.

    Satans demons keep attacking me why?

    Jesus certainly did not have a background operating in the occult, and there is no indication in the Bible that the apostles, who cast out demons, had a background in the occult. Philip the evangelist cast out demons, and there is no indication that he had a background in the occult.

    Lordship salvation vs. "easy believism"

    I heard a video on YouTube describing something lighter than 'easy believism'-- easy repeatism. that is the idea that if you repeat a prayer after a preacher who has NOT preached the Gospel to you, that you are saved. A lot of preachers ask the audience to 'pray to accept Christ' without...

    Do we need the Church buliding today?

    We need to actually assemble. Homes are fine. Online is okay for extra fellowship, but switching to completely online church is not okay. When I first hear of online church, I imagined people clicking wafer and grape juice vial buttons and having their cartoon avatar eat them, having the...

    Something else you might want to do is fill your house with good, Biblical praise music, praising God constantly. Sing along and praise God.

    Satans demons keep attacking me why?

    A pastor of a church I used to attend invited me to join him to pray with a man. The man was having all kinds of issues in his life, including not being able to sleep. The pastor believed he was oppressed. The man had sold idols online, and after that, had all these issues. The pastor read...

    I definitely would not jump to the conclusion (especially based on Internet posts) that your problems are all material, can be solved by drugs, etc. I am glad you seem to be making progress in your faith. If it were me, I'd look into spiritual solutions. There are people who are gifted when...

    What is "youth"?

    Youth is something I used to have. :( I don't think of someone at 35 as 'a youth.' I might even think someone 35 who says, "I still have my youth" is trying to pass as younger or else has a different understanding of 'youth' than I do. I'd think of youth as something that ends around the big...

    Am I the Only One?

    My son is 18 and didn't go out and party and get drunk. Neither has my 15-year-old. You aren't the only one. I also told the young ones that they couldn't date until they were old enough to get married, or nearly so. It doesn't make sense to do so if dating is for finding someone to marry...

    Need help, prayer and advice....

    Hi, When I was young, I didn't date. I was only attracted to certain types of girls, and wanted a wife who was from a similar faith background. In my early 20's I dated a couple of girls for a while. Finally, I had a job I could support myself on. But when I wanted to marry, I didn't really...
