 Disagreements are common and natural and human interaction.  The problem occurs when one party wants to convince the other party that he is wrong and you were right.  You should state your case on what you believe and why you believe it and let it be, not letting it evolve into a quarrel.

 Idolatry is when you make until your self a god that fits your needs. A god that thinks the way you do, and will allow you to live the life you feel is justified. Your god will only ask you to do what you are willing to do and no more.

Sermon #600 -The Centurion—Or An Exhortation To The Virtuous

A Sermon Delivered
By C. H. Spurgeon,
At The Metropolitan Tabernacle, Newington.

“And When They Came To Jesus, They Besought Him Instantly, Saying, That He Was Worthy For Whom He Should Do This: For He Loves Our Nation And He Has Built Us A Synagogue. Then Jesus
Went With Them. And When He Was Now Not Far From The House, The Centurion
Sent Friends To Him, Saying Unto Him, Lord, Trouble Not Yourself:
For I Am Not Worthy That You Should Enter Under My Roof:
Why Neither Thought I Myself Worthy To Come Unto You: But Say In A Word
And My Servant Shall Be Healed. For I Also Am A Man Set Under Authority, Having
Under Me Soldiers And I Say Unto One, Go And He Goes. And To Another, Come And He
Comes. And To My Servant, Do This And He Does It. When Jesus Heard These Things, He Marveled At Him And Turned Him About And Said Unto The People That Followed Him,
I Say Unto You, I Have Not Found So Great Faith, No, Not In Israel.”
Luke 7:4-9.

He tells us that all things work for the good of the believers.  When it involves death or sickness or maybe financial   Disaster we cannot understand that. We can't see how these trials are good for us until after they are long past.

No Worries

Quotable Spurgeon

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
1 John 3:1

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?… See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry.” Matthew 6:26 , 28-31
“One of my hearers had seven children who had come in rapid succession. He was hard-working and well spoken of. His children were all asleep when I went to visit him, and as I expressed the pleasure the sight of their peaceful little faces gave me, the father said, ‘Yes, these are fine times for them; they don’t need to take any thought for themselves.’
“On the following Sunday the man was in church. I spoke of the happy state of children, exempt from care as they were, and went on to say that believers were the children of God, that the Lord had commanded them to be careful for nothing, and promised that he would care for them. The man understood me, and it evidently pleased him to hear his expression repeated from the pulpit.”
General / Re: Islam as a theocracy rather than a religion?
« Last post by Fat on June 20, 2017, 10:55:42 AM »
When a form of government becomes a religion does that make it a theocracy?  The reason I ask is that I see many socialist and communist treat their form of government as a religion, by showing total worship and devotion to their government.  Communist governments even regulate religious practices in their countries in fear they'll compete with government for control of the minds of the masses.

You have a good point and like a theocratic the comies will not allow any other religion.

Some have told me that there is a third covenant and it was a curse to Satan.

Gen 3:14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, “Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

 Is a curse covering it?

Since there's no Temple for sacrifices, does anybody know exactly what the Jews do for atonement in this age? When is the going to hit them that God has made the extreme sacrifice on their behalf and that the Temple is no longer needed for the atonement offering? There must be some reasoning in their minds right now on how they are accomplishing the atonement for their sins.

Does anyone have an answer for me? Just curious.


I don't know how they spin it, but as far as I can tell they're stuck with the law.That is a death sentence because they can't keep the law.
