Just another sinner saved by the grace of God. I had a rough life it wasn't easy.As a kid the state of Oregan got a hold on me, they took me out of my home and bounced me around from institutions to foster care and a prison for youth. This wasn't because I comitted a crime it was to get me to confess to a crime that my father never commited. After four years of suffering abuse from the system I became very bitter. I hated God. I thought of him as the Czar of the Universe causeing pain because he could. I went through more pain. I suffered with mental illness,and tried many suicide attempts. I got married then divorced do to issues on my part and she cheated on me. I remarried had kids. One of my children heard me say God hates me. He asked me why. I had no answer, God softened my heart and I found the truth.

jc@JCalwaysChristianty isnt a fad, It use to mean something but because of our sit down socail club church lives it has become a socail joke. We as Christians ( children of Christ) must breath the life back into our churchs and take Gods message to the lost like he calls us to. We should have the faith to heal the sick, cast out the devil and go where ever God tells us to do! People are going to hell well some of us sit on the side lines and watch and we kill off our own kind instead of showing them the love God intended. I cry nightly because of this horror and I know God crys with me.
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
I live in Twin Falls Id. were it's said the only thing you can do around here is get drunk,get fat or get a tatoo. I use to watch T.V and movies but I'm finding myself more and more convicted doing it.Most the movies dialouges now days can't be done with out the use of profanity to end every sentence and I'm haveing a real hard time finding ones that don't use the Lords name in vain. Even the cartoons I watch with my kids have sexual adult messages that are stuck in there and you hope your kids don't catch it. These are rated G ?
I use to play video games and stared getting convicted about that. If the games aren't flat out voilent they lead the kid on until something Idolistic or occult related pops up in the game. I mean what is this world coming to? I actualy seached the net and found one game that was considered Christian and that was a game called Adems Quest.
Hi I'm looking for advice I met my wife when she was married to some one els she got a divorce and married me we have a beautiful baby girl now but our relation is deteriorating we argue a lot and can seem to find a common ground I feel that this is happening because of what we did I don't want to get a divorce from my wife but I feel guilty for the pain I caused my wife's former husband is there a way God can forgive me for what I did with out leaving my marriage, back then I did not grasp the magnitude of what I was doing please help thank you in advance.
I was married to a woman that I loved dearly. She was divorced and had three kids, I was able to adopt one of them. Five years later we divorced. I knew she was unfaithful to me but couldn't except it.
I was committed to a mental institution and went through some legal Hell. Divorce affects everyone envolved. It leaves a hole in your heart only God can repair.
I'm remarried and have to wonderful boys with my new wife. I still struggle with my past relationship and wonder if I'll ever see my daughter again or if she hates me because of the pain I put her through.
To Pray to God for wealth? Not welth for me but to help all who have helped me. Friends, Family, My Church Etc, even charities. I've always wanted to win big in the Lotto to give a HUGE amount to my Church an to help my Mother an Father get better places to live, put my little sister in any school she can dream of.
That an I have a school tuition to pay off that I can not really afford to do so right now.
Just looking for some input an opinions.
PS: Iam not a selfish or conceded person, I just want nothing more in life then to help everyone.
This should help: The Prayer of Jabez.
"Oh, that you would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory,that Your hand would be with me, and that you would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" 1 Chronicles 4:10
This doesn't sound selfish to me. He prayed for God to increase his wealth and that his hand would be with him...
can anyone explain this shirt to me??? It seems very vain, and God has no favorites. It doesn't make any sense to me. Am I viewing it wrong?
To be honest with you I think the shirt is no better than the shirts that make Jesus and his salvation a big joke. Like the one's you might see through an outlet such as Spencer's. Take for instence Jesus on the back of a t-rex holding a beer (NOT FUNNY) a t-shirt saying arougantly that your Gods favorite is just as bad. What are you trying to tell the non-believer who thinks that us (bible thumping liberals)are a big joke, instead of seeing what they should see and that's Jesus in us true Christians that don't need a shirt to show what they believe in the first place.
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?
Let me tell you a story. When I was eleven I went to see an evangelist that was at my church and was fill withed the holy spirit.
Shortly there after the state of Oregan pulled me away from my family because I was experienceining mental illness and they believed it to be family related.I was bounced around from institutions and foster homes. When I was thirteen I was put in a boys prison. I was the youngest in my cell block. I suffered abuse. I had commited no crime why was this happening?
I grew up bitter and extremely mad at God. This of course styfeld the pouring out of the Holy Spirit in me. It wasn't until my little boy set me sraight about how mush Jesus loved me that the Holy Spirit was able to rise out like a spring of liveing water once again.
