dierdremadrid: “Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tried you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do it, for how should my name be profaned? My glory I will not give to another.”
screamtheprayer: It’s so easy to be distracted by the desire God has given us to have an intimate relationship with someone of the opposite sex. So often we desire the relationship more than we love the person. But, He has a perfect plan from which he provides all your needs. Anytime you’re dissatisfied with that or impatient, is a major lack of faith.
conformingtotheson: screamtheprayer: The more and more I study the Bible and get to know who God is in Jesus Christ, the more I realize two things a) It’s not about me, at all and b) American living is not consistent with biblical Christianity.

revelation19: Is one of the dumbest “Christian” quote I’ve heard in a while. Our actions, no matter how divinely inspired, or spirit empowered will never give someone a clear understanding of the gospel. At most, they will cause them to ask us about our faith, and our response had better have some words in it. Cuz Jesus didn’t play charades.

blakebaggott: and I asked him what he thought about it. He replied, “I don’t know if I can believe that God predestines people.” I then asked him why that was.

Our rebellion against God is total. Apart from the grace of God there is no delight in the holiness of God, and there is no glad submission to the sovereign authority of God. Of course totally depraved men can be very religious and very philanthropic. They can pray and give alms and fast, as Jesus said (Matthew 6:1-18). But their very religion is rebellion against the rights of their Creator,...
