Everywhere that you see, people who think of religion view it in some very depressing and oppressive matters, especially when it came to the "role" of women; I guess I can see why: many old-fashioned patriarchs would use religious documents to justify why women belong in a specific role of life as the homemaker who must serve her husband hand and foot, especially Christian men, who use the punishment of Eve to justify making women "obey" their male counterparts. They turn to the Bible constantly to justify "gender roles" where women should listen to their husbands and husbands should command...

I have seen ALOT of comments saying that the HolyGhost isnt real and you cant catch it and that its satanic. Also some say that speaking in tounges is foolish. And some (not all) comments are by Christians. And some even ask where in the Bible does it say that? Well in the book of Acts its talks alot about the HolyGhost and people being filled and speaking in tounges. And it says in the last pages of John that Jesus breathed ON the people and they received the gift of the HolyGhost.
And that is the devil trying to convince people that its Satanic. He KNOWS that if a christian catches the HolyGhost...

The True Religion

By Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips

THE RELIGION OF ISLAM

The first thing that one should know and clearly understand about Islam is what the word "Islam" itself means. The religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of Christianity which was named after Jesus Christ, Buddhism after Gotama Buddha, Confucianism after Confucius, and Marxism after Karl Marx. Nor was it named after a tribe like Judaism after the tribe of Judah and Hinduism after the Hindus. Islam is the true religion of "Allah" and as such, its name represents the central principle of Allah's "God's" religion;...

Try Not To Cry

Mommy...Johnny brought a gun to school,

He told his friends that it was cool,

And when he pulled the trigger back,

It shot with a great, huge crack.

Mommy, I was a good girl, I did what I was told,

I went to school, I got straight A's, I even got the gold!

When I went to school that day,

I never said good-bye.

I'm sorry that I had to go, But Mommy, please don't cry.

When Johnny shot the gun, he hit me and another,

And all because Johnny, got the gun from his brother.

Mommy, please tell Daddy; That I love him very much,

And please tell Zack; my boyfriend; That it wasn't just a crush.

And tell...

.............TRUTH.............
A poem by Susan

One day as my soul was bright

I praised our Lord with much deight.

With song I sang to please Him so

Hoping to Heaven I will go.

On my knees to Him I prayed

So His pleasure would not be delaid.

I sang and danced for Him to see

My love and faith I gave to Thee.

When I sat and prayed some more

I wanted to be His child adored.

I asked Him for a hug to feel

I knew He would, my heart appealed.

Then suddenly without delay

My soul was hugged on that day.

No words can express my feelings on this

I'm still humbled and my soul a bliss.

This is not mine!

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to ...his Class on the Problem Science has

with GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you Believe in GOD ?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor: Is GOD Good ?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?

Student : Yes.

Professor: My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him.

Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill.

But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?...

(Found on the Jesus Daily FB page)


She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said, “How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him?”



The surgeon said, “I’m sorry…We did all we could, but your boy didn’t make it.”



Sally said, “Why do little children get cancer? Doesn’t God care anymore? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?”



The surgeon asked, “Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he’s transported to the university.”



Sally asked the nurse...

We are made in the image of God, born to show forth His divine creativity and power. Eph 2:10. In each of us God has deposited a gift, we must become His mirror, when people look at us they should see God, just as they see him in the flowers of the field and the sunset over the mountains. God’s people must reflect Him.



In order to reflect God we must seek to become one with Him. John17:22-23. We come into oneness with God through prayer. This oneness will allow us to know the mind of God. 1Cor2:16. When we have the mind of God we will operate in the plan and purposes of God. We will begin...

For the unbeliever, the fear of God is the fear of the judgment of God and eternal death, which is eternal separation from God (Luke 12:5; Hebrews 10:31). For the believer, the fear of God is something much different. The believer's fear is... reverence of God. Hebrews 12:28-29 is a good description of this: “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ’God is a consuming fire.’” This reverence and awe is exactly what the fear of God means for Christians. This is the motivating factor...

Matthew 5:16 – ‘…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.’ (NIV)

If you are really serious about letting your light shine, do you know that you have to be plugged in? I am talking about being plugged into the greatest power source in the entire Universe. Our God!

God’s holy word tells us that David was plugged into God. David tells us in his Psalms many times that the LORD was the source of his joy and strength. There are many examples of this in the Old Testament.

“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28:7 (NIV)

David faced many battles throughout his life. But, with the LORD’S help, he overcame all of his enemies. You can too! Put your trust in the Lord, just like David did.

Trusting in the LORD

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us” Eph3:20(KJV)

We often read and even recite this scripture, but I wonder how many have stopped to really look into what it means. The ability of God far exceeds that which we can express or even that which can enter into our thoughts. The English language in all its vastness is limited in expressing the ability of God. Paul in an attempt to explain says “exceeding abundantly”.

Exceeding- To go beyond the bounds or limits of, to exceed one's understanding, to...

“Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.” Ezekiel22:26(KJV)

“And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon...

Beloved…Our Sovereign Lord set up the entire universe and everything in it. He did it all without consulting our pea brains. God does not really need us. So, why were we created?



In Isaiah 43:7 (NIV), God talks of mankind, “Whom I created for my glory”. God tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:31 (NIV), "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."



So we were created to glorify God. We can glorify the Almighty One through what we say, how we act, and what we are thinking. We should acknowledge how glorious He is and put Him above all things.



We glorify God through our desire to know Him. The more we rejoice over Him "so will your God rejoice over you." Isaiah 62:5 (NIV). Be grateful, rejoice and have a desire to know and obey Him.

You were born for a purpose. There was no mistake when you were formed. Another sperm could have joined itself to another egg, but it did not. All the days of your life have been already written. Psalm39vs16. You were intricately made, not one detail of you was a mistake. Everything about you was made exactly how God intended, because you were born for a purpose.



“For You did form my inward parts; You did knit me together in my mother's womb. I will confess and praise You for You are fearful and wonderful and for the awful wonder of my birth! Wonderful are Your works, and that my inner self...

Yesterday, in a Walmart (or Safeway, something of the sort) in Tucson, AZ, a man with a gun came in and shot a congresswoman because of her political beliefs, as well as a few other people who happened to be in the store. There were quite a few wounded, and six who died. It really is a tragic event, and I as well as the people in church today have been praying for those people, and for all of their families. Just asking that you will pray for them as well; no one deserves to be shot because of their beliefs, or because they happened to be in a certain location at a certain time. </3
