  1. In the end all men and nations will glorify God, either through displaying His grace and mercy or His wrath and holiness.

      No worries. I think you had good intentions but there are A LOT of different takes of Christianity here.... Honestly when I first read "Twinky" though I was a bit confused. Other than the snack food, I've only ever heard it used to describe Asians raised by white families. A sort of middle school insult. My initial reaction was actually "But neither Kite nor John are Asian?" Oops. XD

      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.

  6. God displays His love towards us in two ways; by making much of us, and by enabling us to make much of Him. Which one fills you with more joy?

      Of course, for Piperites, God's love is merely a means to the end of His own glory, so there is an imbalance between the two expressions. Clearly, Kite's latter option is more directly related to that goal, so it would take first place.

      Well there's nothing more joyous than beholding the glory of God. If God's glory is the greatest joy in the universe, existing even prior, his desire to diplay this glory, would be the greatest show of love, cause nothing else even compares to it.

      that's okay, I was just wondering ^^

  8. If someone was to preach a different gospel to me in that my works has anything to do with my salvation, I'd weep and accept hell because I know that no amount of good works would be enough to appease the wrath of an infinitely holy, righteous and just God.

      you said and I quote "Christ hardly ever places the emphasis on believing in Him." He said many times that he is the bread of life, that people should come to Him, to drink from Him, to eat from Him.

      You need to read the Epistle of St. James, Kite.

  9. If you were able to embrace all the universe, all beings in the universe, all devils, all angels, all humans, all creation and all galaxies, with benevolence leaving God out of the account, you would be infinitely parochial, infinitely small. God is, everything else is contingent, dependent upon Him for existence.

      Awesome. Clara was quite charismatic, I agree. So, when did you get saved?

      Ive been a christian for as long as I can remember, Im sure throughout my life ive said the salvation prayer a 1000 times at church, but just recently that I fully understood the gospel. So Id say i was probably saved a long time ago, but only recognized it this year. (cant pint point when exactly but ive certainly grown a lot in the lord compared to last year)

  11. Set your mind on greater joy than the pleasures those sinful desires offer. Love > Lust.

      2 Timothy 3:16 is also a useful verse.

    3. Lefebvre

      It does not make the aforementioned verse any less terrible. The counsel of 'do not love anything corporeal, because God' is better fit to the philosophy of a Gnostic than trying to live life as a Christian.

      I think its funny, Canadian, how you think we're all afraid of or repulsed by atheist. Many of our most beloved members are or were formerly atheists..... Also, KITE! You like Beiber!? For shame.

    3. Canadian1911

      Canadian1911

      I'm Canadian, even I hate Bieber....

      Anyways, I am careful, I've been on a couple other christian forums before simply looking for answers and have been harassed, and told to just die and goto hell already, that i'm possessed, to turn away form my sin, that my life is nothing without jesus.

      I see the people here are nothing like that, which is a plus.

    4. Canadian1911

      Canadian1911

      As I am Canadian, I do not face any discrimination for my non-belief, however because of this video:

      and hearing form other americans, apparently atheists are the last minority there that it's ok to harass and discriminate against.

      So I was weary about that too.

      but as I said, this place is good.

  16. Recognizing Jesus as anything but the Son of the Living God is evident that a divine and supernatural light (from the Father and by the Holy Spirit) has not been imparted to your soul.

      Um, I'm pretty sure Judas was there at Peter's confession, along with all the apostles, who were later given orders to share the Gospel will everyone. And Jesus gave the Pharisees the I AM declaration.

      It wasn't revealed to Peter by flesh and blood.

      Also, my original post had nothing to do with predestination or limited atonement or calvinism, it's about being Christian. Only Chrisitans see Christ as the son of the living God as opposed to muslims, etc.

      In this comment section, the world was, for a brief moment, united in ultra conservativism.

  21. One of the best things of the gospel is that we get to create Jesus freaks. Christ has entrusted us, to make more people like Christ. To make more Jesus freaks who would rock this world with the love of God, who would glorify God in all things they do. Are you a Jesus freak? Come on, Jesus is calling you.

      @Wesker, then John the Baptist might have alienated you from Christianity also. Each person is unique in his approach to the gospel, and so the idea that people should represent themselves in a certain specific manner is wrong. Our actions do have consequences, but I am yet to see two christians who are exactly the same in their approach to proclaiming the gospel. Whitfield, Wesley, Spurgeon, Ravenhill, Calvin, Graham, and many others all preach differently, what matters is what is at the co...
