When I consider the last decade of my life, I see a series of deaths: Death of my pride through living in the shadow of my husband’s giftedness. Death of my fear of conflict through divorces…

Many Christian Blogs today are written about habitual use of drugs and/or alcohol, moderate use of drugs and alcohol, depression, greed, prosperity, fornication or other sinful matters that commonly arise…but what about “religious habits?” For instance…Getting satisfied in hearing someone preach? Quoting scripture with a head full of knowledge and a heart full of sin, praying amiss or perhaps selfishly for “I”, “me”, or “mine”, or even going through the motions of church attendance without connection to Christ in the Spirit. Some religious people believe they can even “tithe” their way to Heaven. (This argument arose between myself and a very close family member). Religious habits can cause people to miss Christ.
The focus of this Blog targets the habitual religious practice of getting people saved and/or re-saved at every “altar call” or at every Church service that is attended. Some organizations call this deliverance services. Some just say we’re…

1 Timothy 1:12,13… And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
Ignorance of the past life – lack of knowledge that can cause the sinner to miss Christ. Missing Christ is the worst of all mistakes in life. The Adamic Nature has to be “melted” by the mercy of God. When the sinful heart is melted the understanding is enlightened just enough to Believe. Belief in a Savior is enough to change the heart forever. The Apostle Paul who was the “chief” of sinners was changed to a holy man of God. No longer was he ignorant. He knew God enough to be faithful to Christ all of his days. Paul obtained God’s mercy. In…

One of the greatest grievances the Christian suffers in life – is the inner feeling of pain caused from the bondage of sin that controls our precious lost loved ones. A Christian (no matter how much they care about their loved ones) can only give account to God for themselves. Unfortunately, a Christian cannot give account to God for ones they love most in life who oppose God as Savior and Redeemer. This Christian suffering (based on love) never ceases unless Christ breaks the yoke of the bondage of sin and shows that broken soul an accountability to the one who controls everything in time and eternity.
Our witness for Christ must ever persevere. Our love for humanity must never fail. God knows the need more than we can ask or think. Our trust in God must continuously increase.
I will write more shortly, but for now, I’m sharing a post from my friend’s blog with you because he nailed it so perfectly
I’ve been researching this myself and absolutely agree!! What’s even more astonishing and heartbreaking is that for the first 1500 years of all Christians understood that only death dissolves a marriage and that Jesus clearly spoke an exception “fornication” which all knew and understood (prior to Erasmus) that fornication is not something that can ever be committed after marriage. After marriage it is called adultery. Jesus clearly spoke that all who divorce and “remarry” while their covenant spouse is still alive are indeed in sin-ongoing adultery. Just like every other sin, it must be repented of and forsaken. Divorce is an act of unforgiveness. To think that there is a sin that justifies unforgiving bitterness and hate and promotes ongoing adultery, discord, and ongoing unforgiveness is not biblically sound. Many pastors have accepted exception clauses and even promote them Bc they’ve been indoctrinated by the recent teachings of seminaries who sadly depend on these corrupt texts for truth. Not only Christians, but even 25 Greek and Roman early church leaders were in unison in their writings when explaining 1 Cor 7:10-11, Mark 10:1-12, Matthew 5:27-32, 19:1-12, LUKE 16:18 (ever so clear), Eph 4&5, and so forth. Jesus didn’t misspeak when he listed fornication and adultery as two separate sins with the others that can keep a person out of heaven. Paul reiterated all that Jesus taught as well….all Scripture is God-breathed. Recall in Jeremiah 3 that the Lord called for repentance regardless of a divorce decree and calls Israel to “return To Me for I am your Husband.” It amazes me that Deut 24:1-4 was never what Christ went to, but plainly stated marriage was permanent according to the vows God is a witness to Gen 2:24, Mal 2:16 and exposed the real issue was “hardened hearts”
Let us not be fooled any longer by the corrupt scheme of the devil and research the truth.
Gen 45, Joseph mirrors forgiveness which needs to be our example today, but more importantly, we need to heed to Christ’s teaching 70×7….this commandment applies to our spouses. All the times Jesus says, “But I say to you….” is worth examining for those who still argue that they are in a “marriage” which the Lord calls adultery. To repent means to turn away, you can’t remain in sin and believe that it is God’s will for you to remain in it. For those who believe this, they are saying that adultery is actually the one sin that does not require repentance! Peace to you all.

I used to dismiss the King James Version of the English Bible entirely. I thought of it as a ridiculous and outdated translation – an anachronism at best…and then I studied the history of current English Bible translations in great detail, and realized that ALL of the new versions use hopelessly corrupt and purposely adulterated Greek manuscripts, which water down the eternal word of the living God…every last one of them. That Greek your pastor often refers to in church? It flows from corrupt Greek…

THE WRITTEN WORD: WHAT DID JESUS, THE APOSTLES, AND THE PSALMISTS SAY ABOUT THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD?
For the Word of the Lord is living and active. Sharper than a double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all of creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to whom we must give an account. Hebrews 4:12-13
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.Luke 21:33
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against thee. Psalm 119:11
I have felt the sharp blade of the double edge sword of truth, which is the word, pierce my flesh and soul many, many times. It has served to expose and excise sin…
