I believe that Jesus died to pay the penalty for my sins. I have confessed I am a sinner and try to repent of my sins but the only really big sin I can’t seem to stop is sexual sin. I don’t have sex with anyone in real life but I fantasize about it almost constantly. I am a computer addict and have “cyber sex” occasionally and look at pics of naked people. I cannot seem to stop this behavior. I have asked Jesus to help me and He did help me to stop my hourlong fantasies at bedtime but I still have impure thoughts. What can I do?
Why do you persist in refusing to use ” Messiah ” as the correct definition of our Savior ? Your constant use of the word ‘ Christ ‘ simply continues to maintain your readers in ignorance rather than to enlighten them with the truth of His name which is , ” YaH-SHua Ha-MaSHiaCH ” or in English …..Jesus the Messiah.

I heard a pastor preaching on Galatians 6:2 (bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ). He strongly recommended sharing our most hurtful experiences with some one else (within the church or outside the church).

This pastor preaches about grace and the freedom we have in Christ, but then lays yokes like this upon his congregation. This sounds like a good topic to preach about, but I don’t think taking on more burdens to fulfill the law is what was intended in this verse. I would like to know your thoughts.
I’m convinced most Christians don’t have a very good understanding of how God sees us. I’m not surprised about this because it’s really hard for us to comprehend. God sees us so differently from the way we see ourselves and the way others see us,
As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” (Matt.
It’s official! We’ve begun a Children’s Church for the tribe we’ve been serving in India. Our Spring Bible School outreach was such a success, the tribe asked us to keep coming every week to minister to the children. After much prayer, we’re moving forward!
No other book of the Bible was so specifically written for our generation. Of its 22 chapters, 19 are about a time that’s still in our future.
And no other book of the Bible promises blessings to those who read it, hear it and take to heart what is written in it.
In short, the Book of Revelation is arguably the most important book you will read in your life time.
People have shied away from this book because of its use of symbolism and its cryptic references. In writing this commentary, I’ve tried to explain these things in common everyday language to make it easier to understand while remaining true to the book’s purpose, which to inform us of things that will soon be taking place.
Here then is my commentary on the Book of Revelation.
