    Why Christians are Leaving Church

    I agree with you Abdicate. The "context" of the Scriptures you posted from 1 Peter is about "Apostasy brought into the church by False Teachers". 1 Peter 2:1...….. "But there were False teachers also among the people even as there shall be false teachers among you." Now, may I say this to...

    Why Christians are Leaving Church

    I am right there with you brother. The church I belong to now is mostly elderly, average age is probably 60. We can not tolerate the loud sounds as sounds mask and drown out words so that no one knows what is being said. Loud instrumental sounds and loud music does not translate into...

    Why Christians are Leaving Church

    I have no desire to argue your point, however I would like to say that just maybe you are incorrect. IF a parent corrects/yells at their child in front of the other children, don't you think that all of the children will be exposed to what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. Take that a...

    Why Christians are Leaving Church

    I understand what you are saying but I think that you should realize that there has to be an authority. A pastor, to be effective must to the very same thing that managers in business do and that is to "delegate" responsibility to others. He has deacons and elders and Bible teachers who must...

    Why Christians are Leaving Church

    I watched your video. You are very correct in your comments on love and treating others with love. However, may I also say to you that we as Christian in fact are told to judge others. I realize that you may not have been taught that but it is nonetheless Biblical. Perhaps no verse or...

    Why Christians are Leaving Church

    Good stuff. I agree with you! The bottom line is that 1 out of a 100 people read the Bible. The other 99 read the Christian. My experience is that when people are offended, they will then manufacture a reason to leave the church instead of telling the truth. Over the years I have seen these...

    Discernment

    2 Tim. 3:1-2...….….. "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy."

    Discernment

    An excellent question to ask. Yes. We should all work at being discerned. So then, what is discernment????? It is learning to think God’s thoughts after Him, practically and spiritually; it means having a sense of how things look in God’s eyes and seeing them in some measure “uncovered and...

    What is salvation according to the true gospel

    Your comments are very correct and verified by the Scripture you used to validate them. The crucified Christ is the hub of the wheel of salvation. He is the center to which all aspects of the Gospel point to and without Him there would be no Gospel, no salvation and no wisdom. Jesus is the...

    Doctrine of the Bible

    2 Timothy 3:16...…... "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness". The Bible is God's final revelation to man. It was His choice to give us His Word as divine revelation and that revelation ended with the book of the Revelation...

    The Sin of Unbelief

    IMO, the reason why ….."His answer for everything is 'everyone is entitled to their own opinion' and 'everyone is different'. He gets annoyed if anyone tries to tell him he's wrong about any issue" is because he is lost and he knows it. You represent God in his mind and because he knows he is...
