darkestlight113: Why is it when another faith wants to share what it has with a Christian and he/she accepts it and it works, other 'Christian' brethren start searching the Scriptures to condemn the act of charity the other faith has shown? A prostitute anointed Jesus' feet with expensive perfume and God forgave her. In the book of Acts a woman who specialized in expensive clothes opened her doors to the Apostles and her hospitality was accepted! We all have different gifts and abilities to bring to the table. STOP JUDGING!!!! Jesus served and gave his life for us! We need to serve and give our time and possessions to each other as well. Amen and Blessed be! ❤ ❤ ❤
darkestlight113: 8If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.…- 1 John 1:8
darkestlight113: Thee rewards would have been GREAT if the world just would have done what I told it to....
darkestlight113: Karma IS Biblical... take a look at this verse plz 7Do not be deceived: God is not to be mocked. Whatever a man sows, he will reap in return.Galatians 6:7
darkestlight113: Christianity is a beautiful faith. The True God of the Christian religion is kind, merciful, and loving. He offers undeserved love, grace and forgiveness when you fail. Thanks to orginations like the Catholic Church and people who use religion for their own purposes... Christianity has been given a bad name by a lot of people. Loving God doesn't nessacarly mean always going to church dressed up nice every Sunday. It means helping the poor, freeing the oppressed, loving the outcast. That's what Jesus did and so many 'Christians' forget this...
bryan w: Amen!!! A few comments -- The Catholic church has had controversies but the vast number of Catholics are good, caring, compassionate, righteous people. Also, the Catholic church does far more for the poor than any Protestant or Pentecostal church. The prosperity gospel, in fact, comes from the Pentecostal's and it is a complete rejection of the teachings of Jesus and it is therefore blasphemy and sacrilege. I am a Methodist yet I admire Pope Francis who works ceaselessly to help those in poverty. Francis is also the only Christian leader who takes Global Warming seriously and has actively helped to combat it. Francis has also been active in combating pollution globally both on land and in the sea. The scandals in the Catholic church are not the fault of Francis and he is addressing them case by case. A lot of work for a very old man! All of us who believe that Jesus Christ is Our Savior are Christians no matter what sect or denomination. Jesus preached love, compassion, forgiveness. Those things are universal!
darkestlight113: I Like that the world is letting me learn from my mistakes now rather than keeping me in them....
darkestlight113: 1 Timothy 5:8, NIV: "Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."
bryan w: For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 KJV
darkestlight113: GENUNIE love can heal any wound, no matter how deep or painful... Selfish, self-rightoues, self-seeking 'love' just makes the wound bleed even more...
darkestlight113: 20You sit and malign your brother; you slander your own mother’s son. 21You have done these things, and I kept silent; you thought I was just like you. But now I rebuke you and accuse you to your face. Psalm 50:20-21
darkestlight113: This is what an angel looks like when they're mad.... I've seen it.... DON'T piss off the Holy Spirit!
bryan w: There are angry Angels in the Old Testament but not in the New Testament. Angels console Jesus and Jesus says the Angels of Children see the face of God. Many other beautiful references to Angels in the NT.
darkestlight113: Evidence of the darkside.... if there is an evil Satan that laughs at us then hope says there is a loving God who overcame him.....
darkestlight113: 1 Peter 2:13-17
New International Version
13 Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human authority: whether to the emperor, as the supreme authority, 14 or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15 For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. 16 Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. 17 Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.
darkestlight113: "Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen."
darkestlight113: 37Anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me; 38and anyone who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. 39Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.… - Matthew 10:38
