"Everybody’s throwing religion out because some people have made it an idol."
The first step to approach an atheist is leave them alone. If you are so sure of your beliefs it shouldn't bother you that they don't believe what you do.
The more sure someone is of Christianity, the more concern they have for others. The wages of sin is death, and that’s a big deal. There’s one way out, and it would be rather unloving not to share that information.
Jesus came and made a way for life and for a clean slate. He looses the chains of addiction, disease, depression and anger. There’s freedom available from all of the consequences of our rebellion.
Real Christians are motivated by love when they share the gospel. The Bible says that God doesn’t want anyone to perish, but all to be saved. We’ve been given the task of going and preaching this good news of life and freedom.
Happy Independence Day!
It’s a good opportunity to renew your dependence on God. Move your life from the foundation of this world and onto the rock that won’t move.
Independent from this world.
Dependent on God Almighty.
my favorite kim k moment is when she was concerned her taste buds were changing because she ate an olive and liked it but didn’t want to
"I want you. In anyway possible that I can have you. Even if you just wanted to be my friend, id want to hold your hand."
Your belief system is totally illogical. You preach that your Lord created these people and this world. Your Lord is supposed to be accepting and love all. Except if you have abortions, or you aren't straight. But you are allowed to be judgemental, which you are. I am a proud athiest, because it would seem that no belief system matches my own - total acceptance of every single person for who they are. But I can't accept those who don't accept every one else.
Hey, thanks for the note.
We preach that the Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
We preach that we were all traitors, and the consequences of our rebellion are all around: confusion, perversion, disease and death.
We preach that Jesus is the only way, and that only by confessing and believing that He’s in charge can we have access to life.
We preach that there’s a day coming when it will be too late, and that we should choose to live holy because we don’t know when that is.
I don’t think you accept every single person for who they are. Of course there are extreme examples of pedophiles, murderers, rapists, etc. But I suspect that you don’t accept that it’s ok for people to be greedy. Or to take things from other people. Or to cheat and take advantage of others.
Everybody’s in the same boat. We all need Jesus. We all need saving.
"I’m an architect, and I’ve designed buildings all over the world. Every time I get a commission in an emerging market, I get excited about the opportunity to draw from the country’s heritage, culture, and art. But the client never wants it. They all want the same thing: ‘modern style, modern style, modern style.’ Everything has to be high and glassy. It’s almost as if everyone wants to hide their differences. It’s boring."
"Prayers offered in the state of dryness are those which please Him best. He wants them to learn to walk and must therefore take away His hand; and if only the will is really there He is pleased even with their stumbles. Do not be deceived, Wormwood. Our cause is never more in danger than when a human, no longer desiring, but still intending, to do our Enemy’s will, looks round upon a universe from which every trace of Him seems to have vanished, and asks why he has been forsaken, and still obeys."
