    What was it that Paul wrote, "Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep" (2 Corinthians 11:25 )... Doesn't sound like prosperity to me... Most of the prophets and apostles were persecuted, afflicted, and killed...

    ( whoso readeth, let him understand: )

    I agree, Jesus was answering a question of, "when will these things be?" His answer was prophetic, it was all future events. The prophecy in Daniel 9:24-27, verse 24 gives the exact time frame of Messiah, 70 weeks were determined or 490 years to fulfill the prophesy. From the time of Daniel...

    Starting From Right Now

    The world would be a better place if everyone had your attitude. "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of...

    Need some encouragement today

    That's good news, sounds like your on the right path. It takes 2 to make a marriage work, but only one to make it fail. People change, and there comes a point when your better off alone than being miserable with a no help mess rather than a help mate.

    The sin of refusing sex

    I doubt it would be classified as a sin, but rather just a marital duty to help a spouse from looking elsewhere for sexual gratification.

    The lockdowns accomplished absolutely nothing!

    The virus has a 5 to 14 day incubation period, so the tactic in the beginning was to institute a 2 week nationwide quarantine to stop this thing in its tracks. Two months later, it became evident that the lock down didn't worked. You can run, but you cannot hide. Herd immunity seems to be the...

    Biding time

    I'm also still working, being lazy and just laying around the house all day just isn't my cup of tea.. With all my bill's, I've also got to have money coming in, y'all are lucky that you can afford a 6 week vacation :).

    Hard to know if God will stop it, sometimes bad things happen for a reason too, but nothing wrong with asking the Lord to see us safely through it. "So the LORD sent a pestilence upon Israel from the morning even to the time appointed: and there died of the people from Dan even to Beersheba...

    A man says to his psychiatrist, "I work 2 jobs and have 6 kids. Life is hectic, I'm never alone. Even when alone in my bathroom, kids are beating on the door. I carpool to work without a moment of silence. 16 hours a day and no solitude!" Psychiatrist ask, "So what is your problem?" Man...

    How is everyone doing in light of the Pandemic?

    Didn't mean to sound like a spoiled child, just frustrated after going to 4 stores today and being unable to find toilet paper or bread, not to mention a bunch of other stuff. Just didn't seem fair that others were getting their Jiffy Pop when I couldn't even find any soda crackers. Perhaps God...

    How is everyone doing in light of the Pandemic?

    Same here... I suspect that the panic and the financial/economic impact will be more devastating on society than the virus itself? I'm in Illinois and our Governor just ordered my business to be shut down. No paycheck to pay the rent in 10 days. We went from a booming economy with record low...

    How is everyone doing in light of the Pandemic?

    Its nice that you can get all of your regular snacks? I can't even get toilet paper or bread. Makes me wonder what your doing right? It also make me question a God who's making sure you get all your name brand favorite foods with no inconveniences or disruptions to your life, while He sits by...

    Is it a sin to watch the Super Bowl on the LORD's Day?

    Sunday is neither the Lords Day or the Sabbath Day.. I don't believe watching the game on Sunday is anymore sinful than watching the sun set.

    Daughter rejected our dating values and our relationship is now strained

    I'd give her space, she obviously wants to make her own decisions without parental permission. Since she's on her own and paying her own way, there isn't much you can do. Its normal for young adults to go through a bit of a rebellious stage, hopefully she won't do anything stupid and is just...

    Why do marriages fail?

    Lots of reasons.. Its tough to commit to anything for a year, yet alone a life time. People grow apart, one may change and mature while the other doesn't. They get bored with one another.. Bad habits, infidelity, abuse, different interest, financial pressures, etc. One stays fit and healthy...

    Bible Doctrines

    Christ said he was the truth.. Just read, learn, and try to understand what he lived and taught.. The plethora of man-made doctrine, opinions, and religious malarkey is scary and inconsequential. Everyone is at different levels of understanding, spiritual maturity comes from studying, its a life...

    Does God create darkness and evil?

    Evil is the result of sin, disobedience is sin, and evil is the knowledge resulting from sin. So imo, yes, God created evil.. A tornado could be construed as evil, people who experience it would attest to it being a calamity. A disaster can't be described as good, things that bring pain...

    Are We Responsible For All The Sins We Commit?

    If your ignorant of something you don't know is sinful, maybe not? "Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34). I suppose we are accountable for doing what we know is wrong, but God may not hold us responsible until we have the knowledge of right from...

    Is there an area (or areas) of your life that you cling to as Your own?

    Off the top of my head, there are 3 or 4 things that I haven't turned over to Christ...Make that 5, I just thought of another... I'm not even sure what "given it over to Christ" means, but I'm pretty sure he doesn't want my bad habits or behavior. I'd imagine he would prefer that I handle and...
