5) I don’t believe the Bible provides a unified, consistent message regarding marriage, war, violence, or sex. The Bible’s many authors have a great deal to say on these and other matters, but there can hardly be a single harmonious Biblical ethic found regarding any of them, no matter how much we would like this.

For example, sometimes in. "When You Believe" is the Official Movie Soundtrack of Prince of Egypt. In the film, this song of inspiration is performed by the characters Tzipporah (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Miriam (sung by.

He or She??. Well, I won't argue about the gender of God here. Since obviously if the God exist he must be beyond the these differences of gender (Let me use 'he'here just for the sake of grammar:P).

to the point, logically there are. maybe why you dont believe in Chris Jesus is your blinded by sin. well Jesus says when you become a christian your a new creation. your old self is dead and your a new believer. i had some sin struggles and still to this day but when this happens tell a friend who wont judge and can encourage you threw tough times.

Many Christians see the church world in black and white. You have liberals on one side–they are the bad guys who doubt the resurrection and don’t believe in the Bible. And on the other side you have the good guys who believe in the miracles, do not waver on the deity of Christ, and want lost people to be saved.

We call these folks evangelicals or conservatives or Bible-believing : Kevin Deyoung. "He (needs to have) shown you what in your life needs cleansing before you can experience the power of God.

Your pet sin is the sin that you do. Perhaps an even better question is, why do people assume such things about people, when they have so few facts?You cannot believe what you hear from they will say anything to get you to agree with them, even if it is a lie.

Christian religions preach Love, not hate. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

10 Concerning this salvation, the prophets, who spoke of the grace that was to come to you, searched intently and with the greatest care, 11 trying to.

The people are weary. Just a quick glance through a worship center on a Sunday morning will make this point obvious. When people are asleep before the preacher ever starts speaking, you know the preacher is not the problem; a lack of rest is. The music component of worship is bad. Jesus Heals the Official's Son 47 When he heard that Jesus had come from Judea to Galilee, he went and begged Him to come down and heal his son, who was about to die.

48 Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will never believe.” 49 “Sir,” the official said, “come down before my child dies.”. You know them by their fruit. How many people have you raised from the dead.

So we should listen to you over Smith Wigglesworth. The devil cannot glorify God and raise the dead, nor can a man raise the dead in Jesus name if he teaches false doctrine. Proving Smith Wigglesworth is a true son of God, full of God and his power.

The bible refers to them as things that are "partial" and that when what is "complete"comes this "partial things" will cease,thats why we dont believe in the miracles happening today cos they are fake but we believe that when we ask for Jehovah's help through prayers and with praise he will help can learn more from our website Ask why the person does not believe the Bible is the word of God.

Ask "why" to the answer. Sometimes it is good to repeat the answer in the form of a question. For example: If the person says the Bible has contradictions, ask "Why do you believe the Bible has contradictions?" or "Do you have any examples of. Share Your Testimony.

The gospel changes people’s lives. One way you can share it with your friend is by saying how you feel that God exists, for example, in the miracles that you have experienced and that you now experience by the simple fact of waking up every day.

What I have written above is key to answering the question, “If you don’t believe in Jesus anymore, who do you think called you into the ministry?” Since I do not think God exists, the only way I can possibly answer this question is from and environmental, psychological, cultural, and sociological perspective.

Since i was a kid, i have always questioned religious dogma through critical thinking. I have studied the Bible and the Quran and it is apparent the reasons behind both books.

Christians believe you need to have Jesus before you can go to heaven. Muslims equally believe unless you accept the prophet Mohammed, you're not going to heaven.

Most of the religious leaders that preach the. The mind set on the flesh, verse 6, is death. The mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. Verse 7, “The mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God.” And then this, “It does not subject itself to the Law of God for it is not even able to do so.

And those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” If. 37 Bible Verses about Not Believing In Jesus but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.” So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you simply will not believe.”.

Many people believe they can do miracles, or their religious leaders can do miracles. Some of these miracle workers have been exposed as nothing more than magicians, while others have spent time in jail for various crimes.

Others, no doubt, truly believe God has empowered them to do miracles. What does the Bible say about receiving miraculous. He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed at their lack of faith. (Mark –6) It’s a little jarring to read that Jesus was.

"These twelve Jesus sent forth, giving them these orders: "Do not go off into the road of the nations, and do not enter into a Samar'itan city; but, instead, go continually to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As YOU go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of the heavens has drawn near.'.

"[i]For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear"[/i] (2 Tim ) Expect more drama because there is nothing you can do about it.

God brings His people to the foot of Mount Sinai, gives them the Law and makes a covenant with them. No sooner does He do this than the people begin to grumble and lose faith. With Moses gone up on the mountain, the people convince Aaron, Moses’ brother, to construct an idol (against God’s clear prohibition) for them to worship (Exodus   Why Jews Don’t Believe in the Trinity The Jewish people as a distinct historic community do not believe in the trinity.

Throughout history many Jews have chosen to die rather than accept a doctrine that deifies a human being. Trinitarian Christians take offense at this Jewish position. These Christians do not consider themselves idolaters. #1 The “Stumbling Blocks To Spirituality” Series "PREACHING WITHOUT PRACTICING.

TEXT: Matt. ; James INTRO: One of the toughest tests of Christianity is authentic faith on our part!. ILLUS: The story is told about a preacher who was catching a bus one day to go into the city, as he came on the bus he paid the bus driver $1, the rate however only being 75¢.

They do not preach Jesus Christ as crucified, raised, and reigning. They preach themselves. They want you to believe them and perish forever. This is what the devil wants.

He knows he is going to go to hell, but he wants others to go with him. False ministers are agents straight from the pit. It just doesn't make any sense was to why people believe in religion. Religion is just a bunch of stories explaining how the world came to be. How can people take them seriously without evidence?.

Science provides evidence about evolution, natural selection, genetic drift etc but religious people would never take that seriously, I just dont understand.

They believe in God but depend on. Only Jehovah's witnesses who don't believe in miracles are ACTIVE in doing what Jesus commanded (Matthew /20) One of them asked me 'why is it that Jesus commanded all Christians to preach and teach but it's only you JWs that's up and doing in the work?' i looked intently at him and gave him a direct answer 'the Holy Spirit is not in your.

1. People do not believe in Jesus because they reject the light that He has given them (). John ‘“While you have the Light, believe in the Light, so that you may become sons of Light.’ These things Jesus spoke, and He went away and hid Himself from them.” Jesus is the Light of the world (John ).

Galatians Today we are beginning a brand-new sermon series on the book of Galatians. Whenever a pastor starts a new series, especially an exposition of a book of the Bible, it’s always useful to know why this book and why now.

I still remember a minister who after been ordained a pastor, when a believer as per his practice called him brother, the so-called minister got very angry at him.

There is none like HIM. God can still use us to do miracles, as He leads and as we pray but there is no Biblical support for believers to do miracles equal or greater than the apostles today. Now for what the phrase actually means. Notice John does not say.

The law of attraction is a very insightful law by which to live. In other words, your ability to become intuitive will skyrocket if you attract what you want in life, especially what you dream of. One of the thorniest verses in the Bible for Evangelicals is John Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Evangelicals believe that the fourteenth chapter of. The church has always been a staple in the black community. However, several black pastors are getting negative attention for earning millions while they preach to low-income congregations. Atheists can be happy, balanced, moral, and intellectually fulfilled.; Natural selection and similar scientific theories are superior to a “God hypothesis”—the illusion of intelligent design—in explaining the living world and the cosmos.; Children should not be labelled by their parents’ religion.

Terms like “Catholic child” or “Muslim child” should make people cringe. (when in doubt contact us). We Will Re-approve posts/comments if you edit them to remove any inappropriate content and alert us to the changes.

Why don't rich people believe in God. Because the devil doesn't bother his own – he already has them. But there are a few rich people who do believe in God.

I've worked for a rich Christian couple. Did you know that there's only one true atheist in the poster above. Earnest Hemmingway, the guy who killed himself. What happened. You took your little girl to Sunday school. You read her Bible stories. You showed her how to pray.

You dedicated her life to the Lord as a young child. You watched her grow in faith, but then, something changed. She hit the teenage years, and now she doesn’t believe in God anymore. The bible (and history) is full of Christians that had all kinds of supernatural powers such as: Ezekiel could "see" the future (Ezekiel ).

Samson could tear apart lions with his bare hands (Judges ). Peter's shadow could perform faith healing miracles (Acts ). Elisha could part rivers by striking the water with torn clothing (Kings 2: ).Churches are supposed to turn people's mind to focussing on God which means two things: (1) Love God with your heart and mind and (2) Love your neighbour as yourself.

The focus on "miracles" by some people is actually far from the focus of the Church as a corporate body whether in Nigeria or globally.

These "miracle" people used to be a minuscule minority; even now they are still a minority. The New Testament teaches that God sent the Holy Spirit to glorify Jesus as the Son of God. Jesus said, “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth He will glorify me” (John ).

The Holy Spirit does not do this by telling us that Jesus rose from the dead. He does it by opening our eyes to see the self.
