After God gave me the Holy Spirit, I found proof that TV, movies, video games and computer games are all sins, except Christian stuff that don’t have sins like sermons. I found out that in them there is stealing, adultery, fornication which is sex before marriage, revenge, jealousy, pride, using God's name in vain as a curse word, they are all idols (breaks 2nd Commandment) because most people can’t live without them and they love them more than God and more. Just read the 10 commandments for a list. But if you are one of God’s elects and God gives you the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is the permanent cure to boredom but it is only given to God’s elects who suffer the most in this world since they were physically born. [MOD EDIT - NO PLUGGING] Now I will be preaching about how to receive the Holy Spirit and be 100% going to Heaven. First, it's only by the grace of God that he gives you faith in Jesus Christ in order to give up your sins. It’s only by the grace of God that he leads you to pray to him to destroy all your evil desires of watching TV. When you pray to God to destroy all your evil desires of watching TV, Satan will intervene and extremely tempt you in watching the TV. But if it's God's will and if you are one of God’s elects, you will overcome it and God will destroy all your evil desires of watching TV. After God has destroyed all your evil desires of watching TV and if you are one of God’s elects, you receive the joy of the Holy Spirit for about 40 minutes. After the joy wears off, all existence of boredom no longer exists and you no longer burn out (psychology) anymore. That is when you have received the Holy Spirit. Then it's by the grace of God that he forgives you of your sins, as you confess and repent of your sins throughout your life which is called sanctification. But you can watch Christian stuff that don't have sins (Like sermons) because that helps you grow more mature as a Christian spiritually and for more information about this sermon, go to spreadthegospel59.wordpress.com then go to “Is God’s words powerful? How do we receive the Holy Spirit?” Just so you know Jesus had to endure the punishment for God’s elects sins which is Hell-Hellfire, which is extreme love and mercy. Read the bottom of what Jesus had to endure in Hell. Lazarus and the rich man Luke 16:19-31 Extreme Dehydration, rich man begs for a drop of water. Luke 16:24 King James Version (KJV) 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. A place of outer darkness Matthew 8:12 A place of no rest Revelation 14:11 A place of blackness and darkness forever Jude 13 A place where people are tormented with fire and brimstone Revelation 14:10 Extreme pain since you are in everlasting fire. David Platt - Jesus Absorbed the Wrath of God If Jesus didn’t die on the cross and endure Hell which is the punishment for sin, God would still be just in sending us all to Hell because we are all guilty of our sins. Remember TV, movies, video games and computer games are all sins, except Christian stuff that don’t have sins like sermons. Just read the 10 commandments for a list. But God was willing to have some mercy, which we don’t deserve because we are all guilty of our sins. At least God was willing to have at least some mercy, better than no mercy at all. Isaiah 1:9 King James Version (KJV) 9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant (God’s elects), we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. Romans 9:29 King James Version (KJV) 29 And as Esaias said before, Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed (God’s elects), we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha. If God didn’t chose anybody to be saved, God would still be just in sending us all to the lake of fire which we all deserve because we are all guilty of our sins. Be thankful that God was willing to have some undeserved mercy, which is better than no mercy at all. It would help if someone can translate all of this into different languages like Spanish, Russian, French and more. Than I can spread the gospel on different social medias to people that speak these languages. P.S don’t try to justify your sins or make excuses for your sins or find loopholes in the bible. That’s about it.
Hi guys, I've decided to move the debate over to this thread to avoid any more conflict with the mods. I am debating the fact that some catholics need to bow down towards images that represent a divinity aimed towards God so they can have a better communication with Him VS Only needing to rely on the Holy Spirit to help you communicate with God. I will literally continue my debate here. This answers to Zabby's post. I would consider the fact that my brother or sister has a problem because he or she shouldn't be attached to any object in order to communicate with God. You got it! Good. No one is claiming it. I was challenging you to answer those questions because if you really think about it, we don't need anything to better our relationship with God except His Holy Spirit. A physical reminder is great, I write down stuff on paper or a reminder on my computer so I can remind myself to pray or read the bible. But actually bowing in front of it so that I can have a better communion with God is a bit off. If there is no reason to bow down to these things, why do them in the first place?
Why should I bear good fruit in Christ? Matthew 7:17-19 English Standard Version (ESV) 17So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. 18A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us. Matthew 22:37-40 English Standard Version (ESV) 37And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38This is the great and first commandment. 39And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets." 1 Corinthians 8:3 English Standard Version (ESV) 3But if anyone loves God, he is known by God.[a] How do I know I love God? John 14:15 English Standard Version (ESV) Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit 15 "If you love me, you will keep my commandments. The Word of God is complete. God bless you.
jackie.barra posted a topic in Testimonies and WitnessingI'm 16 years old. I go to a youth group where we do bible studies every week. I go to church every Sunday. I have a lot of friends who really care about me. I have a loving and supportive family. I believe that God is my heavenly father and he answers prayer. Yesterday I was diagnosed with depression. I had been suffering from depression for a few months but it was only just recently that it got much worse. Some of my symptoms are confusion, easily agitated, lack of interest in things that I normally love, feeling detached from my friends and family, crying a lot, trouble concentrating, looking for an escape, not motivation, I'm forgetful and I have trouble doing some of the most basic everyday activities. When I had all these things happening to me, I was scared; I didn’t know what was happening to me. I was blaming myself, I felt I was being selfish, acting in that way that worried everyone, and I was so terrified when I learnt I had no control over it. I didn’t know what was wrong with me, so when the doctor diagnosed me with depression, I felt a sense of relief, I know this will sound strange but I’ve been so happy since being diagnosed. I feel sense of hope, that now that my family and I know what is wrong with me, we can do something about it. When it first became obvious to my parents that I had depression, they started praying over me and telling me to let God heal me, When I didn’t get any better, they got angry at me saying I didn’t have enough faith. I hit rock bottom, just a few days ago I was at a point where even my parents wouldn’t listen to me or help me. I felt stupid for feeling depressed; I thought that it was something that I should be able to control myself and just stop. I also felt bad for my family; I could see that my depression was having a bad impact on them. My Dad stopped smiling and my Mum would cry when she thought I wasn’t listening. My little sister and brother were scared; they didn’t know what was happening to me. I didn’t know what was happening to me either. I was so confused. I’d wake up in the morning and not want to get out of bed, I couldn’t think of any reason to. I don’t have trouble getting out of bed anymore because now when I wake up I praise the Lord and ask him to bless my day. Although depression is a terrible thing, I feel that God may have a purpose for this. I know that I can overcome this with God's help and when I'm healed of this depression, I am going to have an amazing testimony. Just because I’ve been diagnosed with depression, doesn’t mean I have to act depressed, I'm going to be filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, and be the happiest depressed person anyone has ever seen.
