Their are a lot of people that ask me why should I get saved and give up their fun filled life. I'm actually finding it harder and harder to answer them. It seems like the devil is taking over everything making Christianity seem dull and boreing.(not to say the sinfull life is fun)
I actually feel like crawling in a box sometime to keep myself clean from all the evil crud that the devil has done with entertainment. Movies,games,music,even outside entertainment is getting more and more corrupt. Adults as well as kids are getting smacked with this daily...What are we sappose to do about this? I have ideas but I need your input
Okay, so...basically since my boyfriend and I started dating people have been gossiping about us. Before our relationship was official, my former pastor came up with this idea that we were sleeping together; we've been "engaged" several times since spring, got married over the holidays and again today!
Any suggestions on how to handle gossip? Aside from the purity ring on my left ring finger there is no reason for any of the gossip (and the fact that it's a serious relationship, but what of that?) How do you think Jesus would handle others gossiping about Him?
It's not that I hate it--I actually find it amusing--but it gets boring after a while, and my family throws a fit every time they hear that we're getting married. :P
So you've been married twice and you both are getting married again?
As far as gossip, all I can say is to just ignore it, who is anyone to judge you as they will be judged themselves on judgement day.
So for awhile now Ive been feeling...Lost you can say. No matter what I do I feel this "void" in my being, I have a great family, a loving GF, awesome friends Etc. But I still feel there something missing. Like when it comes to material objects, new games, movies Etc it keeps me happy for a bit but then I find myself so unsatisfied. I feel there MUST be more. I guess iam asking what I should do?...
How do I fully bring Christ into my life for good? An to be set on the exact path he wants/needs me on.
Also I just recently got a new job, but I get slammed with 4AM shifts almost ALL the time an Iam not digging that. As above post states Iam 100% thankful I have this new job but i still feel its not enough an iam currently looking for a better one. An my family are going thru a tight budget an i hate seeing hardship in life. Ah! iam so lost LOL.
the outreaches we do here for our church is basically we bring the church out to the homeless people around the island. so there's praise and worship/message/testimony/altar call then food and we also have clothes and stuff for them, we do it once a month :) like the day before we'll pass out flyers around the area we're going to have the outreach
it was told to me like fasting is denying yourself and the time you'd spend eating you'd be still meditate on the word, pray. i know a lot of people when they have to make big decisions will fast and seek the Lord for an answer as to what to do.
i've fasted 3 days a couple times just drinking water, i'm no fasting expert but by the third day both times i've just felt so good more sensitive to the holy spirit :)
Does anyone know any good Christian bands? Ones that are alternative, pop, acoustic, indie, or soft rock perhaps? I'm having a difficult time finding Christian bands that suit my taste and aren't overplayed :(
Some bands/artists that I like are:
Jars of Clay (the older one)
Death Cab for Cutie
Some Tenth Avenue North songs as well as The Afters
If anyone could help that would be great! I really do need some more Christian songs to listen to.
I was just wondering what all your thoughts are on this topic. I know a lot of people don't believe the baptism of the Holy Sprit is for today. This is definitely NOT true!
The Bible says "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever." Heb. 13:8
Also Acts 2:14-18 is another passage to read.
Acts 2:38-39 says that we will recieve the gift of the Holy Spirit after we have become believers.
So what are your thoughts and beliefs?
I think some of it has to do with belief in christians, like they may have a fear that their prayers won't work when they are laying hands, but fear activates satan, faith activates God.
also my brother in christ got kicked out of one of our local hospitals for praying for someone, but glory to God she acepted christ before he got kicked out :)
my dad shared with me a story of these youths straight up on fire for the Lord and they went to a local hospital and were walking down the hall praying and patients were being healed and the doctors were so perplexed at what was happening lol that's our God!
