    1. On my! Where are my manners! So glad to see you have a Chat Room up! Thanks for leaving your link! Chat Rooms can be fun and educational. Hope you enjoy having one. It gives a place to go for off-topic conversations. You gave me the idea since you were apologizing for being off-topic so I thought I should get a comment thread for us.

      Good night! be blessed! \o/

      1. No big deal just glad the link worked for you. Having this chat room will be interesting at least we can talk to whoever I choose with no interruptions but I will not tolerate false teaching or heresies from other Christians on the chat room. Thank you for commenting good night and God bless you sister.

      1. Uh-Oh! I found a sermon teaching of his that I disagree with in parts! I can forgive him being a free willer where I believe the Bible teaches election as per Romans 9, 10, 11 of which he digresses on and which I’m thinking he has messed up in interpretation (?). He considers Romans 10:9, 10 as pertaining to Israel only. But we, as the Church, are to learn from Israel, their election (Romans 9), their rejection (Romans 10) , and their acceptance (Romans 11). I don’t believe God deals with the Church any different than He dealt/deals with Israel. I liked that he teaches about the error of Kingdom Now by the misinterpreting of Matthew 21:43. Here is the video title: The Coming Kingdom. Episode 52. Misinterpretation of Matthew 21:43. Not meaning for there to be a debate but would like to let people know to use discernment! I’m still going to listen to his teachings but with a forgiving gracious attitude. We can still learn from him. Besides, I don’t believe being an Arminian or a Calvinist keeps anyone from entering God’s Kingdom.

      2. I agree . There are many teachings we won’t agree with, other teachings we can learn from. I haven’t listen to many of his videos yet .
        Arminian and Calvinism I gave up a while back. I used to break my head and stumble on both opposing teachings. I now believe the truth lies somewhere in the middle! God is Sovereign and in this truth I have come to find peace and rest for my soul

      3. I think they are both too extreme. I agree with Calvinism but there is a thing called hyper Calvinism I totally reject that.
        The Word says that all are called but only a few are chosen .
        Many are called: most people in the church., God
        will choose people today by election. Others
        receive a general calling,of which many will
        not respond.

      6. Yes! I was an Arminian who started praying for scripture insight into the doctrine of election to prove it wrong when God opened my eyes to it in these very chapters of Romans! It truly humbled me! My salvation was none of me and all of Him and the more I see my sins as the evil against God that they are I wonder that He even would bother to elect me for His salvation! That’s a wisdom I dare not pry into.

  2. “I heard while back some teens claimed they saw a man in white they said it was Jesus what do you think I don’t think so it happened in AZ.”

    Who has ever seen Jesus that we would recognize Him if we saw Him? Men may make their images of Him, which breaks the 2nd Commandment, but we still only know what men says He looks like and not know what He, Himself, in truth looks like. We live by faith, not by sight.

    But, this reminds me of something I’ve thought on: will the Antichrist look like the popular man-made image that seems to permeate the churches?

    1. I watched the video where they were trying to make MacArthur a partner with Rick Warren. It didn’t convince me since it wasn’t an agreement made between the two. Just a note: we do want to be careful with whom we partner with though. And! Lets be sure we give no regard to a man because he has been pastoring for so many years. John MacArthur believes one can be forgiven if they take the Mark of the Beast and are repentant. In light of Revelation 14:9-11 I find it hard to believe they will repent or even be forgiven if they are.

      Um, Rick Warren is a “wackadoodle!”

  3. Hi Crissy what do you think about me adding this for my funeral speech the Lord has had me say. Romans 10:13 New King James Version (NKJV)

    13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

    In closing my question to each and every one of you here today is have you been Born Again as John 3:3 says 3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

    You may say I was baptized and confirmed in the church but those things will not save you of make you Born Again of the Spirit of God or born from above and it’s not about religion but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and any ism religion is not true Biblical Christianity. Religion says do God say done and it is faith+nothing and Only Jesus can save you.

        Not Carnality but Christ
        3 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

      7. Well all just share it now here it is. When I knew that they weren’t doing well the Lord wanted to make sure they were right with God before they died and I can tell you on the authority of the Word of God they are with the Lord Jesus because they believed that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again 3 day later.
        ‭‭

        ‬‬ Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?””
        ‭‭John‬ ‭11:25-26‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

        if you don’t know know Jesus as your Savior and Lord call upon Him today for Today is The Day of Salvation! You Must

        A Admit you’re a sinner

        B Believe Jesus is Lord

        C Call upon His name

        Romans 3:23-“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”

        ‭‭

        “As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one;”
        ‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

        You may be asking how do I call upon Him to be saved it is written. “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
        ‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:9-10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

        Romans 10:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
        13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

        This is the Gospel. “For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.”
        ‭‭I Corinthians‬ ‭15:3-5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

        Some final words of comfort.

        Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
        Romans 15:13 NKJV

        “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!”
        ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭27:13-14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

        “We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.”
        ‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

        One last thing to remember.

        God is sovereign and numbers are days.

        God won’t keep us here longer than necessary

        In closing my question to each and every one of you here today is have you been Born Again as John 3:3 says 3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

      47. Hi well I talked about this morning about going to church again and they said do you remember the conversation we had and I said show me Bible Verses to back up your claims I’m not acting like a Christian I think they said the Golden Rule and honor your father and mother I think before that I asked do you want to worship God they said yes. I said find me a way to get to church if your not going to take me I think. I then asked do you know what a Christian is and explained.

        Not easy … we must choose to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh..,
        Sometimes we fail but we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. In Him we can. You are a new creation.

For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.”

        Chapter 12:14-15

        Why We Go Through Trials

        Part 5

        Trials enable us to see what God is showing us

        Verses 1-4

        Trials protect us from pride and arrogance

        Verses 5-7

        Trials keep us prayerfully dependent upon the Lord

        Verses 8-10

        Trials produce perseverance in us

        Verses 11-13

        Trials make us more like Christ

        Verses 14-15

        This is main purpose for trials

        Romans 8:28-32

        It comes by way of affliction and trials

        1 Peter 1:6-7

      65. Hello BibleGuy
        Breakfast was good !
        Very good question . There are many and diverse opinions on this subject a bit like the rapture. This is my verse
        “So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.”
        ‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2:16-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
        We buy presents for one another . Jesus wasn’t born on Christmas Day and the Bible doesn’t talk about it either.
        Is up to the conviction of your heart .
        To me personally is a reason to get together with family and enjoy a meal. Not a reason to over eat and drink like there is no tomorrow

      68. Actually, Bibleguy317, we should be concerned about X Mass being a Christianized pagan “holy” day since it is another Jesus and not the Jesus of the Bible. So, it is a false teaching that God has not ordained us to celebrate nor has He made it a holy day. It is will worship, Cain worship. We are to worship God His way, not ours. If God have just half of you He has none of you. If Satan gets half of you he has all of you. ~Matthew Henry

      69. Actually, we should not want to celebrate days that God shows in His Word that He hates. Christ Mass and Easter are of pagan origin with Christ’s name slapped on it. That makes it another Jesus. That makes it a very serious issue! Another Jesus does not save anyone. It is a stumbling block. God does not compromise with evil.

      71. Crissy, the verse you quoted for reason to have liberty in celebrating Christ’s birth is the most used and misinterpreted verse since it was talking about Jewish days, etc., not pagan days or any man-made “holy” days. Paul would not condone incorporating religious paganism into worship of God since he knew God’s severe judgement on Israel for doing the very same thing. Acts 19:19 is our example as Christians pertaining to what to do with religious paganism. Christians, today, are imitating modern day Wiccans. 😦

        Deuteronomy 12:4

        You must not worship the Lord your God in their way.

        1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJV)

        Abstain from all appearance of evil.

        Acts 15:20 GOD’S WORD® Translation

        Instead, we should write a letter telling them to keep away from things polluted by false gods…

        1 Corinthians 10:21-22King James Version (KJV)

        Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?

      72. Hello there Sherry
        I NEVER SAID I CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS in such a way as you describe. I quoted that verse to say I will judge No Cristian brother or sister as to how they celebrate or not celebrate Christmas. It’s up to them and the Holy Spirit. Some Christians drink wine others think is an abomination to have a glass of wine. I am here still alive for one purpose only to tell people THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY WAY without JESUS hell is their destination.
        All my family but one are lost. The Christmas season brings opportunities for me to see my son and his two little children that I hardly see . Is it of the devil to share a meal and buy them a present? I don’t believe so. I never tell them is from Santa . We don’t celebrate the birth of Christ since they don’t believe . We celebrate family ! Love! Make memories! Share enjoy each other’s company. And should the Holy Spirit open a door for me to share the gospel there I go … I will open my mouth and share Christ.
        Also thanks to the Christmas gifts I can give during Christmas my step daughter has agreed for me to buy my seven year old granddaughter a Bible. Praise God for that. To me this is Christmas. I don’t want to offend you .

I have no problem with the way you celebrate Christmas everybody is different some talk about Jesus’ birth others don’t and that’s fine.

Just open up His Word and read about His birth to others. Gee, if Christ Mass were that great of a tool for spreading the Gospel then everyone should by now be saved!
