So Iam under going knee surgery April 5th, Iam just asking my fellow Christians to keep me in their Prayers that all goes well, including proper medical assistance from the Dr(s). as well as recovery time even physical therapy. An also Pray all goes will in the end result. God Bless you guys/ gals!.
Need a little advice: So lately I've been feeling like I dont do enough as a Christian. I read the scriptures everday!, pray ALL THE TIME!, attend Church, an I try my absolute hardest to be the best person I can in Gods eyes. But I dont wanna be the "Hey I go to Church, I must be Christian" guy. Like I feel in my heart I AM a good person, but I guess I feel I fail in putting into action how I feel inside to not only better myself, but my family, friends and my Christian community.
Anyone ever feel this way? If so how do I get over it? And by all means I DO NOT mean get over it as in not care, just asking for advice I guess on how I should become a better person/Christian. Thanks!
In my New American Bible, I just read 2 Sameul 8:1 and it states
" After this David defeated the Philistines and subdued them; and David took ...* from the Philistines"
Why is there "...*"? What is suppose to be in that blank spot?
So I was at Mass lastnight an was hearing the word of God, The Book Of Genesis. ? is this: It said "Now let us make Man". Who would "US" be if it was just God making earth at the time? Also correct me if Iam wrong but Moses wrote the first 5 books correct? So iam assuming "us" would be how God spoke to Moses on how to write it?
So do you find the early Books "unrealistic" or "unbelievealbe" at all?.. Not saying I do just asking your opinion.
As far as the "us" I was also leaning to the Trinity. Why would these "inconsistencies" even apear? Kinda weird...
Id like some advice on how one goes about speaking The Good News as well as teaching The Gospel. I know it can be taught without words, By Alms Giving, Giving Thanks, an even doing good deeds for a stranger. But I've always wanted to "Preach" The Gospel if you will. Where does one start? Iam not talking about Preaching in a Church LOL, but just with people. Also what happens if you try an teach the Good News/Gospel to an individual who does not believe in this? Where would the covnersation go from there LOL?...
So what does everyone here do when they feel life is getting a bit rough? My example: I kinda fear my future, because I still can not find employment, I have a 10k school loan I have to pay off, And I always think of what me and my younger sister would do when (I pray to God its a looooong! time from now) my dad passes away.
So what are some things I can do to help me with this "future fear" if you will. Thanks so much!
So ya Ive been seeing patterns on this site, when it comes to topic making. Ill make a sincere topic asking for advice, help, "opinions" Etc an it'll sit here for DAYS an no comments. Yet one person will make a topic saying its their BirthDay an within mins it gets AT LEAST 30 replys. Guess Iam taking my postings elsewhere to another fourm. Peoples true colors fly high on this site.
So how exactly does one fully! give their hearts an life to God? An how would one know if this process is done correctly? Would they fill diff, free etc?..
Ive always had a hard time under standing this, feel bad that I do actually. I mean I read the Scriptures everyday, attend Mass every Sun!, an try my absolute BEST to be the good person I am. I just need insight on this. How do I know when I get saved?...
