Jesus was known to his friends by the a€?words.a€? Arena€™t a€?wordsa€? part of a language.
Healing is between you and God and no one else unless you choose to call a Christian Science practitioner.
As in all languages there are a€?Figures of Speecha€? so it is with the language of the Comforter or the language of Spirit.
Richard Lanham, in his book A Handlist of Rhetorical Terms, a€?The vast pool of terms for verbal ornamentation has acted like a gene pool for the rhetorical imagination, stimulating us to look at language in another way.
Christian Science is the Science of the Christ in the language of the Comforter, God defined as Spirit, Life, Truth, Love, Mind, Soul and Principle. An example of a a€?similitudea€? from the Bible would be a€?a€¦by their fruits ye shall know them or in Genesis it says to a€?bear fruit.a€? The word a€? means to bear actual fruit or render a result. An example of a symbol would be the snake in Genesis 2 which is a symbol for evil in all ita€™s subtleness. I just love old Christian Science books because in the front or back sometimes there will be a precious inspiring quote that some one has wrote down from a lecturer or teacher of Christian Science.
If Science & Health seems hard to understand, you may need to study your Bible more because just about every statement or every other statement in Science and Health is using some verse or portion of verse from the King James version of the Bible. Through careful study of the Bible and through reason and revelation, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, clearly discerned the nature of God, and defining His nature she uses the seven synonym. God is the creator of man, and the divine Principle of man remaining perfect, the divine idea or reflection, man remains perfect. If you dona€™t understand something, think it through and have paper and pencil ready to record what you found. In reading through the Christian Science text book Science & Health you may want to keep a pencil handy to mark the rules.
Seeing the Man and Woman of Goda€™s creating means not looking for something wrong with a person but looking for the good. The Tenets of The Mother Church.pdf are found on pages 15 and 16 of the Christian Science Church Manual and on page 497 of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Begin reading Science and Health with Key to the Scripture by Mary Baker Eddy because many people have been healed just by reading this book. Read the last chapter page 600 which are the healings and then start at the beginning on page vii. Look up words you dona€™t understand or maybe think you have some understanding but want to get a clearer view.

He then states the result of being clothed with the house from heaven that he so greatly desired.
Eddy says a€?In the year 1866, I discovered the Christ Science or divine laws of Life, Truth, and named my discovery Christian Science.
Eddy, you can find her autobiography, Retrospection and Introspection (Ret or Retro and Intro) in your local Christian Science Reading Room. Eddy says in her own words in the chapter a€?The Great Revelationa€?, Christian Science reveals Mind, the only living and true God, and all that is made by Him, Mind, as harmonious, immortal, and spiritual: the five material senses define Mind and matter as distinct, but mutually dependent, each on the other, for intelligence and existence. In other words, do you want to understand divine Love the language of Spirit to heal yourself? Eddy] had talked about the great need of love in everything we do, a pupil asked, a€?Do you mean love of person?a€™ Mrs. Check out this Partial List of Healings in Scripture.pdf in the Old and New Testament in the King James Bible. To heal is being a€?Prayed upa€? by studying the Lesson Sermon daily, doing daily identification work and listening to God - inspiration. This word from the Greek means a€?Divine influence upon the heart, and the reflection in lifea€?. In one old book this quote was transcribed from a lecture given by Christians Science Practitioner, Lecturer and Teacher Geith Plimmer. These terms can be found in the Glossary of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures on page 587: 5.
Eddy says this, a€?The procuring cause and foundation of all sickness is fear, ignorance, or sin. Eddy says about Christ Jesus, a€?We have the gospel, however, and our Master annulled the material law by healing contrary to it.
The Science of the Christ uses terminology and symbolism to make clear the spiritual ideas or rules. Eddy points out a€?The chief difficulty in conveying the teachings of divine Science accurately to human thought lies in this, that like all other languages, English is inadequate to the expression of spiritual conceptions and propositions, because one is obliged to use material terms in dealing with the spiritual ideas.
Eddy is talking about when it comes to thinking and mortal thought - Mortal Mind a€“ a€?brainologya€?.
The rules are through out the writings of the Bible and Science and Health with Key to Scripture. Eddy says this about God and his promise, a€?Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.a€? According to the Bible, God promises health, supply, peace of mind, courage, strength, and many other good things. InA  other words, do you want to understand divine Love the language of Spirit to heal yourself? Eddy] had talked about the great need of love in everything we do, a pupil asked, a€?Do you mean love of person?a€™A  Mrs.
The Sacred Scriptures abound in them, because the Hebrew mind delighted in Oriental imagery. There are over a thousand Bible verses from the Kings James Bible.A  These versesA  are listed in the book The Complete Concordance to the Writings of Mary Baker Eddy and it is also on a CD.
The Bible warns us over and over again to be vigilant, because there will be MANY false teachers in our midst. The Bible tells us that, in the last days, the believer will be bombarded with an incredible amount of evil, through various media. In the middle of a firefight, if you don’t know how to distinguish friend from foe, you will get hurt! There are forces of evil in the universe who are pretending to look just like the messengers sent by God.
Scattered among the letters which he addressed to the churches are a few verses that almost seem to contradict what he wrote in other epistles.
His language has been understood by many to teach that the reward of the righteous is bestowed at the moment of death and that an immortal soul leaves the body to face an immediate reward or punishment.
This is also established by the repeated references to the a€?nakeda€? or a€?unclotheda€? state. To both the Corinthians and the Romans, Paul emphasized that the Spirit was a pledge that they would be clothed with immortality. In either case, whether by translation or resurrection, he would be a€?clothed upona€? with the immortal body.
He could not be a€?forever with the Lorda€? until that change took place a€?in the twinkling of an eye.a€? The interim sleep of death in the grave held no appeal for Paul, since it would seem but a fractional second of utter oblivion to the one who died. Some have attempted to interpret this text as though Paul said he wanted to depart and be with Christ immediately, but the word immediately is not in the scripture. We have found from other scriptures that his expectation centred on the resurrection or translation of the body. If there is any other way of getting to be with the Lord, then Paula€™s language is a stupendous falsehood. As we have just noted from 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17, Paul knew of only two ways to be with the Lorda€”by translation or resurrection. The alternatives that drew him were either a€?to livea€? or a€?to die.a€? He was a€?in a straita€? between these two.
He described it as a€?having a desire to depart and to be with the Lord, which is far better.a€? Better than what?
If so, they were able to see him a€?as he isa€? at that very moment, and they would already be changed into the a€?likenessa€? of Christ. Even though his departure in death was a€?at hand,a€? he did not expect to be with Christ immediately.
It doesna€™t matter where you are in your life, whether you are looking for healing of any kind - physical, mental or spiritual. When you take responsibility for your thinking you will live the life that God wants for you. Retro and Intro can be purchased individually as a small pamphlet or it is part of the book Prose Works.
She called for her Bible where she read the story of the paralytic man and got a glimpse of how Christ Jesus healed. Science defines man as immortal, as coexistent and coeternal with God, as made in His own image and likeness; material sense defines life as something apart from God, beginning and ending, and man as very far from the divine likeness. In the language of the Comforter, God teaches us what to say a€?yesa€? to and what to say a€?noa€? to. The quote reads, a€?As one would expect, scientific Christianity has a textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. She capitalized seven synonyms or seven other names for God and those are Love, Life, Truth, Principle, Mind, Soul. The paragraph opposite reads a€?Divine Science explains the abstract statement that there is one Mind by the following self-evident proposition: If God, or good, is real, then evil, the unlikeness of God, is unreal. If there ever was a moment when man did not express the divine perfection, then there was a moment when man did not express God, and consequently a time when Deity was expressed a€“ that is, without entity. In Exodus 20 are the Ten Commandments and in Psalms 37:31, it says that a€?the laws are written in our heartsa€?. The elucidations of Christian Science lies in its spiritual sense, and this sense must be gained by its disciples in order to grasp the meaning of this Science. There are many more terms so do your research and look up the words in the Science and Health Concordance.
Now a promise is something like a contract where both parties fulfill the terms of the agreement. In the language of the Comforter, God teaches us what to say a€?yesa€? to and what to say a€?noa€? to.A  In any science you have to start with the basics like definitions.
Reason and revelation do not yield to a dream.A  In the language of the Spirit a€?errora€? is another word for evil, more specifically fear discouragement, worry, hate, age, and etc.
Note the Bible verse and Bible terminology she uses within her statement.A  a€?Let this age, which sits in judgment on Christian Science, sanction only such methods as are demonstrable in Truth and known by their fruit, and classify all others as did St. It has been his game from the very beginning, and it will stay that way until he is destroyed, JOH 8:44. If this is the true meaning of Paul's words, we are faced with some serious inconsistencies within the epistles.
We can be certain, then, that the unclothed state did not involve being with the Lord, since Paul did not desire it.


He is simply contrasting the present life with the far more glorious life to come in heaven. His chief hope seemed to centre upon being translated without ever being a€?unclotheda€? in death.
Either mortality would be a€?swallowed upa€? by being translated or death would be a€?swallowed upa€? by being resurrected. Looking beyond the uninviting nakedness of death to the land of life, Paul ruled out any possibility of a state between death and the resurrection when disembodied spirits could be present with the Lord. Other passages further clarify without any equivocation when the great apostle expected to be with Christ. The cause of God on earth drew him here, but he was weary from beatings, stonings, and bodily suffering. If we go to be with the Lord by means of our immortal spirit when we die, then we do not go to be with Him by means of the visible coming of Jesus, the resurrection of the dead and the change of the living. If he lived, Christ would be magnified, and if he died a martyra€™s death, the cause of Christ would be magnified. He expected it a€?henceforth.a€? The crown of immortality was a€?laid up for me,a€? he said. She was healed, got up and walked down the stairs to the astonishment of the people planning her funeral.
Science reveals Life as a complete sphere, as eternal, selfa€?existent Mind; material sense defines life as a broken sphere, as organized matter, and mind as something separate from God. A Practitioner put it this way, a€?To be inspired simply means to be aware of the reality of Goda€™s presence as the only presence, the reality of His power as the only power, and the reality of our individual being as the expression of Goda€™s being.
Sometimes you will heal instantaneously and in other cases you will need to heal by a€?argumenta€?. The more you understand God the more you understand yourself as Goda€™s image and likeness. So this is symbolism for the sneaky, subtleness of evil thoughts that can make you think the evil thoughts are your thoughts.
Antithesis and parallel embrace all the poetry and no little of theA  prose of both the Old and New Testament.
Let us examine the verses in 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 and discover what Paul actually did teach on this crucial subject. In fact, the apostle made reference to being clothed with only two houses, the earthly and heavenly. If the soul inhabited that heavenly a€?housea€? immediately at death, what happens when it must inhabit the immortalized body after the resurrection takes place? This verse provides undeniable proof that the indwelling Spirit is a guarantee that our mortal bodies will be quickened at the resurrection.
He yearned to a€?be clothed upona€? by translation at the coming of Jesus, so that he be not found a€?nakeda€? (in the grave). Paul answers that we might enjoy a state of being in which a€?mortality is swallowed up of life.a€? Is that condition the separate existence of an immortal soul? Again, we are reminded of Paula€™s overwhelming desire to be translated without passing through the a€?unclotheda€? state of death. He would receive it a€?in that daya€? with others who would a€?love his appearing.a€? Surely, those of us living today should anticipate that same glorious appearing when we too shall receive, with Paul, the crown of righteousness, which fadeth not away. Christian Science is sacred in that healing was what Christ Jesus was teaching by his life. Science reveals Spirit as All, averring that there is nothing beside God; material sense says that matter, His antipode, is something besides God. Sometimes just a thought, one Truth, in the face of evil will dissipate the evil (Instantaneous healing). The more you understand his deep impersonal spiritual love for you as his child - the a€?agapea€? love. Christian Science is sacred in that healing was what Christ Jesus was teaching by his life.A  Mrs.
Is it a proof or assurance that we have immortal souls that will live on when the body is dead? So evenly balanced were the influences drawing him in both directions that he hardly knew which course he preferred. There is no possible way of avoiding this conclusion, except by claiming that the descent of the Lord from heaven, the mighty shout, the trumpet, the resurrection of the dead, and the change of the living, ALL TAKE PLACE WHEN A PERSON DIESa€”a position too absurd to be considered. Christ Jesus said, a€?I am the way, the truth, and the life.a€? Christ Jesus showed us how to heal in the Bible and Mrs.
Material sense adds that the divine Spirit created matter, and that matter and evil are as real as Spirit and good.a€? (Ret. The Greek word a€?agapea€? used by Christ Jesus is found in the book of John and implies a love far above the personal sense of love - above what the mortal senses comprehend.
So a change in thought from evil thinking to God based thinking comes first in healing although the physical senses may still saying something different.
This would involve those souls leaving the a€?house eternal in the heavensa€? which they inhabited at death, and going into the redeemed bodies at the resurrection.
Verse 23 answers, a€?a€¦ we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.a€? Paula€™s earnest expectation and hope was for the time when his body would be redeemed. Nevertheless, he said it was more needful for the church that he remain here to give them the benefit of his counsel and labor. Eddy explained how Jesus healed through her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. We know that outcome of understanding God and the rules is healing because when you stick to the Principle of God and live according to his rules you will witness healing. Eddy states, a€?A physical diagnosis of disease a€“ since mortal mind must be the cause of disease a€“ tends to induce disease.a€? So prayer and your desire to know God will result in healing. Also you will need to purchase the textbook Science and Health with Key to the Scripture by Mary Baker Eddy. Christ Jesus always prayed everywhere - in the desert, up on a mountain or on a lake going to the Father first. Just accept the little things that you can understand and agree with, and be grateful for them. If you dona€™t have a good Bible Dictionary check out the web page on this site a€?Building Your Own Bible Librarya€? for books you may want to add to your library. Eddy states, a€?A physical diagnosis of disease a€“ since mortal mind must be the cause of disease a€“ tends to induce disease.a€?A  So prayer and your desire to know God will result in healing. Dona€™t believe that you are a mortal that must till the ground as Adam was told he must do.A  You are image. To be a€?unclotheda€? or a€?nakeda€? is the condition of death that is the interlude between the dissolving of the earthly house and putting on the heavenly. It is either a body on this earth and being absent from the Lord, or it is a redeemed body in heaven and being present with the Lord.
Goda€™s purpose in making man would have been realized without death taking place, and the idea of an immortal soul would never have existed. She did not discuss the book she was writing but she went out and healed through inspiration of God. In other words, ask yourself, a€?who or what is influencing my life?a€? Is it God and his goodness or is it matter like drugs, sex, or some other kind of matter based influence. Where does a thought begin but in your thinking.A  So where does God come to you but in your thinking.
The apostle makes it abundantly clear that the Spirit is a pledge of the redemption of our bodies at the resurrection. Surely no one could believe that God a€?wrought usa€? for the a€?selfsamea€? purpose of sinning, dying and leaving the body in some invisible soul form. It is turning to God and recognizing that peace and Love are right there where the problem seems to be. You can verify this by reading the last chapter of the book where there are testimonies of people who have been healed of many diseases beginning on page 600. Christian Science is the a€?Comfortera€? that is the prophecy spoken by Christ Jesus, the full and final revelation, the language of Spirit. Her mother was a very spiritual woman and she even new that before Mary was born she was carrying a special child. A A THEREFORE, MAN IS MADE IN THE IMAGE OF GOD FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF CONTAINING THE CONTENT OF GOD; THUS, WITHOUT RECEIVING GOD IN OUR SPIRIT, WE CANNOT EXPRESS GOD AS CONFIRMED IN 2 COR. I know that your love will last for all time, that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky.
Moreover, this view introduces something that Paul never mentioned; for here we have THREE HOUSES, but Paula€™s language allows for only TWO.
Start with the seven synonyms by looking up each in the dictionary so you getting a better understand of each.
So when her daughter heard her name called several times her mother told her to answer as Samuel did.A  Mrs. Eddy discovered Christian Science is the year 1866 that coincides with the prophecy in the Bible in the book Daniel which dates the year of 1866.
15: But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God, always patient, always kind and faithful. They are indicated in the Bible, and through the Christian Science textbook, which is the key to the Scriptures, their full meaning is revealed.
At death the body, which is mortal, does not become immortal, but loses all its life and crumbles back to dust in the grave.
Prove what you are reading by thinking about it, by pondering, and reaching an understanding.
It took me a year to read Science and Health because I was working full time, taking pilots training in the morning, and ground school at night falling into bed reading only one or two pages of Science and Health at night. 8: But God has shown us how much he loves us a€“ it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!Hebrews 13, vs.
There is not as much life afterward as there was before, because after death only the soul lives, while the body which was alive before, is now dead. I would formulate questions during the day and God would answer at night through my reading. UNLIKE IN THE NATURAL BIOGRAPHY, THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION OR FEAR OF SIN AND DEATHBECAUSE, IN CHRIST, THERE IS LIFE,LIBERTY, AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. I would come home from work and plop myself in the chair for A? hour or so, wash up, change my clothes and eat dinner. I can count on my one hand the number of times I played ball with my boy or took my daughter shopping. I feel sorry for my children for not being there for them and sorry for my wife because she raised the kids pretty much on her own and she did a great job of it.
I am sorry for myself also because the moments that I missed with my children can never be recovered. I thought I was doing my best by beingA a goodA provider but in my older wisdom I know that being a Dad was the most important thing they needed. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS A LOVE STORY THAT REVEALS THE HEART OF GODA THROUGH THE PERSON OF HIS SON, JESUS. He created us, molded us, watches over our lives, provides for us, and when we die He brings us into His kingdom. THEREFORE, A PERSON MUST HAVE FIRST PLACED THEIR FAITH IN CHRIST FOR SALVATION BEFOREA TAKINGA COMMUNION (MATT. It was customary at that time for Rabbis (Jesus was onea€”it meant teacher) when they were among a crowd to say the first verse of a Psalm.


What He most likely was doing was wanting the rest of the people, and us, to say the rest of the Psalm. Kendall===============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop June 12, 2010.
Lost loves, friends, jobs, disagreements with others, death of relatives, and depression are just some of the reasons we lose pride and hope in one self.
We could go on with this forever so today I am just addressing those qualities in single people.
With single people, it could just be the problem with finding the right a€?someonea€? to love.
The delay or loss of a past love (among other things) could send someone spiraling downward into a loss of respect for themselves. Nationally, there are 85.6 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women and the birthrate is approximately 53% women over men. They have the a€?TV-ADa€? looks, drugs, drinking, sex, and instant communication (cell and text). Some people give up on themselves and become self destructive with over eating and drinking or hibernation. From a mana€™s perspective, if a man is looking for a quick date, sex, or just a temporary girlfriend he will frequent a bar. If a man is looking for a long term loving relationship or wife, he will look around church, a library (or book store), coffee bars, or social groups. Dona€™t settle on things that go against you conscience whether it is with yourself or a mate. People with multiple divorces fail in relationships, drinkers are good drinkers, abusers (physical or mentally) are just abusers and players, and cheaters are cheaters.
People rarely change and never enter a relationship with the thought that you can later on change that person to your expectations. If a person you care for ever poses this statement ----- A a€? If you want me (or love me) you need to do a€?this or thata€™.a€? ----- then walk away and dona€™t look back. The following religions or faiths consider Jesus as an enlightened spiritual teacher: Jehovaha€™s Witnesses, Mormonism, Unification Church , Christian Science, A? of all Wicca, New Age, Nation of Islam, Bahaa€™i World Faith, Hare Krishna, Hinduism, some of Judaism, and Islam. It is funny that all these listed above recognize him as a great spiritual teacher but do not follow His teachings. The other half of Wicca, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, and Buddhists either do not mention Him or He is not important to their way of thinking. Genesis Chapter #1 in part of verse 2 says, a€?and the Spirit of God was moving over the watera€?.
He won trophies for the best in class in New York State for horseshoes and archery (before compound bows) for several years running. He hunted and fished and always, it seemed, brought back his limit no matter what game, fish, or bird was in season.
He joined the Navy Sea Bees in WW2 and ended up getting drafted in the Marine Corps on an Island in the Pacific during the conflict. The only way there is through His Son Jesus so I accept Him as my Lord and Savior and try my best to follow His ways. A ====================================================== ==============================================Note: If you have not seen the movie "Left Behind" with Kirk Cameron, now would be the time.
Well to begin with; this promise from God is only for believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Paul was talking about believers and inserted the condition of a€?for those who love Goda€?. You see, when you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness and confess to Him your sins --------- you are washed clean with the blood of Christ. However, sometimes you carry the baggage of the memories of those sins in your mind and heart. This verse in Romans assures you that your guilt is unjustified because God will make it turn out in the end for good. Jesus did not promise that this life would be easy but that He would walk through those troubled times with you. Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience. I do believe that God is making this bad thing turn out to be good and I think He has a better job for me in the near future. If you believe in God and love Him and believe in His promise, these too will turn out for the better.
And leta€™s not forget that even though what his brothers did was a€?wronga€?, God made it into good when Joseph forgave them and helped them. His promise does not make wrong right but makes it turn out into something good for his glory, for us believers.
We know that Jesus will walk with us through the valley but God will get us to the mountain top when we get through it. I am sure there are many stories out there of how this verse helped many people weather their storms.
Kendall============================================================Pastor Pop-Pop July 31, 2010. Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.
Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. It tells us His personality, words, likes, dislikes, rules, commands, pleasures, and all the things he has done. So any god or image of him that does not conform to or match the one described in the Bible (the word of God) is not the God of Israel that we are to worship.
Let us be clear that making images of anything is not a violation of the commandment but actually worshiping it as a god. Some churches within the body of Christ have pictures or statues of saints or even Jesusa€™ mother. That is not a violation unless the statue (or the person) a€?itselfa€? is being worshiped as a god or the statue is believed to have some sort of power within itself. Wearing a Jewish star or a cross is also not a violation unless the emblem itself is worshiped. If they are decorations that is OK but if you actually place or believe some hope or faith of luck in them, it is a violation of the commandment. People now seem to create their own god to worship in a€?their own minda€? and not within the scope of the Word of God (the Bible). The one I hear the most is, a€?I am a good person so that is all that is needed to go to Heaven and be saved.a€? That is not what the Bible tells us. Matthew 7:21 (ESV) says, a€?Not everyone who says to me a€?Lord Lord,a€™ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.a€? What is the will of the Father?
People go around saying god is this or god is that or that is a€?not what I believe ina€™ but if their beliefs are not in line with the Bible, they are in violation of the first commandment.
God is OK with working on a Sunday (or having your place of business open), God is OK with Homosexual and Gay behavior, I dona€™t have to go to church and worship Him, I dona€™t have to give, I dona€™t have to forgive everyone, it is OK to kill unborn babies, He is OK with pagan rituals, I can be rude to people, God did not make the earth a€“ and on and on and on. The pastor said that this church was saying the Holy Spirit told them this was OK but another church said that the Holy Spirit was against this and yet another one had a different view point from the Holy Spirit. We all violate them in some way or another but that is why Jesus died on the cross to wash us clean in His blood and absolve us of our faults. He scribed it on stone tablets and gave them to Moses on the mountain top to give to His people. That is the translation that she likes to use.===============================================================Thou shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous Goda€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦. Leta€™s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to). Have you ever created another God in your mind or worshiped another god of a different religion or faith? Jesus said that if you even lust in your heart (or mind) for another that you violate this commandment. Covet is defined in the NIV dictionary as: To want for yourself something that belongs to another person. Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment. If you believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven of your sins and you are washed in His blood clean and white as snow. A Timothy McVey the mastermind on the Oklahoma bombing defied God and declared that he alone was the a€?master of his destinya€?.
A ==============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop August 24, 2010.
Having a good relationship with your spouse, family, friends, or co-workers is usually based on a good two way conversational attitude.
To render Him praise and glory through prayer, actions, good deeds, following His laws and commandments, and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He knows what we need before we ask but He likes to hear it from us also with some praise and worship attached. Your Mom knows you need food and gives you healthy meals but approaching her and asking for a snack also tells her you would like some cheese doodles too. Prayers can be from a book, made up by you, from the Bible, or just general conversation between you and God.
They can be on your knees by your bed, in Church, or just during every day activities or work. I try to concentrate not on an earthly or worldly fixture or thing but temporarily close my eyes (not while driving) or look up when I talk to Him. I find one (or a paragraph or verse) that I derive comfort from and say it as a special prayer to the Lord. What can flesh do to me?Psalm 121(NLT): I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there? Go to a good book store and page through some and see which ones are comfortable for you personally.
They are good Bibles but one is paraphrased and one is in a so called modern language that, for me, does not read real well. I highly recommend The New Living Translation (NLT), The New Century Version (NCV), or the New American Bible (NAB). The first two are used a lot with Contemporary Christian Churches and the third contains extra books as it was designed to meet the needs of Catholic Christians. I also like the Good News Translation (GNT).A It is important that you like it and are comfortable with it.
