    If prayer works then why go to a doctor

    Prayer works according to the good sovereign plan and will of God. Prayer does much more than perform public miracles, it performs many unseen miracles. It demonstrates our limits and demonstrates our desire to rely on an all powerful God to affect lives and things outside of our control. It invites us into the presence of a Holy God on the basis of Christ alone, knowing that without Jesus, being in the presence of God in our sinfulness will only condemn us. It gives us an opportunity to wait and see the goodness of the Lord as He answers us in ways we never would have imagined. There is a need for doctors, there are many unseen miracles going on in the operation room. With each tragedy, pain and success, the hearts and lives of doctors, patients and nurses are all being affected. God has also given us science and this world for us to know much of it and how it works in order for us to worship Him in all his beauty. There is so much we can learn from the human body and how it works and how to heal it. God and miracles are not a substitute to science. We never stop learning about this world and the precise workings that God has put in place. The statement you made can be applied to anything in this world. If there's prayer, why is there a church, why do we have missionaries, why do we have engineers, why can't we just pray and have everything instantly happen the way we want it. The answer to that is, prayer is a means of grace that God uses to accomplish His will on the earth. It can be answered in many ways, but it is never a substitute for action. We pray and act. We pray and live. We pray and play. We pray and eat. We pray and glorify God. God wants us to persist in prayer as well. Never stop praying for your mom and loving her and being a Christ-like daughter to her. Your consistency, your tears, your prayers will all be heard by God and at the right time He will bring you healing and comfort and will wipe away your tears.

    Stuggling and in Need

    Hi Cameron, It's good you recognize your need to battle those sins and to seek counsel and help against them. I think the people most equipped to help you would be your local pastor or member of your local church. If you haven't, talk to someone in a leadership position at your church whom you trust, so that he can help you in your fight for holiness. It would be difficult to have accountability with someone online, it's much better in person because you will have to meet face to face with the person. Continue to pray to God, read your Bible and trust in the sovereign sanctifying purpose of the Holy Spirit. Here's an article from desiringgod.org that might help: https://www.desiringgod.org/articles/pleasure-set-him-free-from-sexual-sin I also recommend reading the enemy within by Kris Lundgaard. It is a book derived from John Owen's treatises on indwelling sin in the believer's life and the mortification of sin. Killing sin is different for everyone, some find instant success, others find themselves battling till the end of their lives. But as christians, we never give up on the fight against sin. There is a heaven and hell difference between one who fights his sin and demonstrates godly sorrow against his sin and one who is completely content in living a sinful life. I pray you're on the side of pursuing victory against sin. And your payer will be answered, either in this life, or the next. All who believe will be made like Him who saves. Be prepared for highs and lows and joy and sorrow, but never leave the fight for purity and holiness.

  7. Q4: How and why did God create us?
    God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.

  9. Q3: How many persons are there in God?
    There are three persons in the one true and living God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

  10. Q2: Who is God? God is the creator and sustainer of everyone and everything. He is eternal, infinite, and unchangeable in his power and perfection, goodness and glory, wisdom, justice, and truth. Nothing happens except through him and by his will. http://www.newcitycatechism.com/q-parent/q2.php

  11. 1. What is our only hope in life and death? That we are not our own but belong, body and soul, both in life and death, to God and to our Savior Jesus Christ. http://www.newcitycatechism.com/q-parent/q1.php

  12. Redeemed humanity is to be something more glorious than unfallen humanity would have been, more glorious than any unfallen race now is. The greater the sin, the greater the mercy: the deeper the death, the brighter the re-birth. And this super-added glory will, with true vicariousness, exalt all creatures, and those who have never fallen will thus bless Adam’s fall.

  13. Let me not be pestered with these men, but perform your duty.

  14. Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.” (John 6:35)

  15. get offended! Helping you let the opinions of strangers on the internet determine your quality of life.

  16. How do you love people who you strongly disagree with? Understand the historical context of the good samaritan and the implications...Also the creation of man in God's image, Imago Dei. Our faith is based on true self-sacrificial love and uncompromising convictions and righteousness.

      This situation has been dealt with.

  18. 47 So Aaron took it as Moses said and ran into the midst of the assembly. And behold, the plague had already begun among the people. And he put on the incense and made atonement for the people. 48 And he stood between the dead and the living, and the plague was stopped. Numbers 16:47

      Churches welcome all sinners to the foot of the cross for repentance and forgiveness. I don't understand what you mean it should become a place for gays. If you could clarify that'd be great! Also, on the topic of insensitivity, I rarely make any posts on homosexuality, and if the opportunity arises and it can lead one person to repentance, then I will make a post despite it being insensitive.

      Too many things are sugar-coated. I respect your opinion.

      As do I, the sugar-coated generation is really getting on my nerves.

  20. Your neighbor—not only your friends, kinfolk, or acquaintances; not only the virtuous ones who regard you, who extend or return your kindness, but every person, not excluding those you have never seen or know by name; not excluding those you know to be evil and unthankful, those who despitefully use you. Even those you shall love as yourself with the same invariable thirst after their happiness. Use the same unwearied care to screen them from whatever might grieve or hurt either their soul...

  21. Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.

      That's cool to know. What about the following 2 verses (4,5)? Are there also any events that occurred that Jesus might have been referring to?

      I actually meant the whole unit of vv. 1-5 thus the Roman swords and the falling stones.

  22. Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.

  23. The god of this age, Satan, has blinded the minds of unbelievers to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God...For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
