Jesus gave his flesh and blood for us, this is symbolized by bread and wine. Regarding Jesus it says “[he] gave himself as a ransom for all people” (1 Tim 2:6). When in the upper rooms Jesus broke a loaf and gave it to his disciples and said “This is my body, which shall be given for the sake of your persons” (Luke 22:19 ABPE) Furthermore in Hebrews 10:10 it reads“For God's will was for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once for all time” (Heb 10:10 NIV). Jesus...
I know that I am everything that I seek. I am know that the only thing preventing me from self realization is simply my effort to do so..
I know that I am one with all. I know all these things and yet I haven't reached "enlightenment."
Is there some big wow lsd trippy moment where you can just see the vibrations? What is this total feeling of unity that I can not obtain?
I have researched, learned, and meditated myself into insanity. I feel so far away from what I was but yet so clouded...
Daniel 12:3 Those who are wise will shine as the brightness of the expanse. Those who turn many to righteousness will shine as the stars forever and ever.
Luke 11:34-36 The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. (35) Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn’t darkness. (36) If therefore your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, it will be wholly...
Recently I decided to reestablish contact with the Christian community by having fellowship with them from time to time. Since the Christians know that I am a full practicing solitary Witch that is Wicca friendly they sometimes ask me all kinds of questions about Paganism in general.
Even though I am not fully Pagan the Christian community identifies me as a Pagan and I want to represent the Pagan community as best as I can to demystify and hopefully end the Hollywood stereotype of what...
There is not a single week where I do not hear about destroyed temples, vandalized murtis, priests killed, forced conversions and forced marriage of hindu girls...
I am really, really sick of it.
I am sick to see these on the news. So look at those with me:
Look at those too, because this is NEVER talked about, it happens almost daily now and NOBODY cares, not even the police, nothing happens. Nobody helps or even acknowledge that it is happening.
But should a Hindu raise a hand...
I've been a Satanist for the past two years. However, recently, I've started feeling that Satanism is merely an expression of my rebellion. I'm not saying that rebellion is a bad thing, I think it's good, but I do not feel that Satanism is my true religious belief...
Over the past few weeks, I've felt more drawn to Norse/Germanic Paganism, however, I've been a Satanist for a few years and it's difficult for me to abandon it.
Has anyone felt "drawn" to a certain spiritual path before? If...
Hello everyone. This is my first. Please don't hate. I've come not just to establish an old-fashioned debate, but to help some people establish some faith and maybe help someone through a tough time. First off, obviously, the debate is going to be centered around Jesus, the existence of Him (I say Him because it is my OP, and it is my personal beliefs that He is God) as God, as well as the Son of God, as well as overwhelming historical, theological, archaeological, and scientific evidence...
Even as a child, when I started to question how a perfect god could have created this very imperfect world and very imperfect man could have taken place. Well the stock christian answer to this is "because Adam sinned" which never sat right with me and always seemed pretty far fetched and very unintuitive. It's like a car manufacturer making a car and then blaming the car for all it's dysfunctional attributes. I have this argument with my older brother who still believes this argument, it...
Just want to take sort of a poll. This is not to discuss which purpose for water baptism in Jesus's name is correct, but the reasons I've heard include, but are not limited to:
1. For forgiveness of sins.
2. To give one's public confession that they belong to Christ.
3. Testifying what God has already done inside (salvation).
4. As one's parents dedicate their child to Christ.
5. Following Jesus's example.
My question is, has anyone gotten water baptized in Jesus's name for no reason than...
As we look around this world, we see that all the physics add up pretty well. Everything is balanced and works great.
People say mankind and the world is nothing but a big mess!!! Is it really?
If God created the world so that the physics add up so well, isn't it safe to assume the People factor is also working well as it is supposed to do? With this in mind, maybe people have the view of things completely wrong.
If the human factor is working perfectly as it should, having been designed...
