      We wait on the Lord to act – to deliver, to answer our prayers, to renew our strength, to do what only God can do. We wait on Him because He is God and we are not. And waiting on God is good for us. As we wait on the Lord, he changes us and strengthens us. He   WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT UNCONDITIONAL LOVE DAVID MERCK in the book Love, Acceptance & Forgiveness which has , copies in print: 3 we consider each of these dimensions of God's love, we will also seek to determine what our own duty is to our fellow

      In Ro Paul declares the permanence of God's love. The adversities we have to contend with in our Christian walk do not mean that God has forsaken us or stopped loving us, as many think. In fact, the opposite is We now have access to the Bible everywhere: in print, on our phones, on our computers, the Word of God continues to be meaningful and so very relevant. The fact that the Bible itself continues to be such a strong influence in today’s world is a testament to its timeless meaning and ://

    The other reason I say that the will of God in Romans is God’s will of command and not his will of decree is that the phrase “by testing you may discern” implies that we should approve of the will of God and then obediently do it. But in fact we should not approve of sin or do it, even though it is part of God Muslims believe that Muhammad is the "seal of the prophecy," by which they mean that he is the last in the series of prophets God sent to mankind. Muslims abhor the followers of later

In this book, he unpacks the meaning of the word God and explains why we need to get rid of the crude and unhelpful assumptions that still abound.

This is a book for all who are curious about how God, and God's actions, can be understood :// COVID Resources.

The biblical doctrine of inspiration does not mean inspiration in the sense that Mozart was inspired when he That Paul refers to the gift of righteousness is also clear from 2 Corinthians God made Christ to be sin, even though he was without sin, so that believers would “become the righteousness of God.” The meaning of God’s righteousness is explicated by ve which refers to forgiveness of sins.

This verse also explains how God could In Christianity, God's grace and God's mercy are often confused. Although they are similar expressions of his favor and love, they possess a clear distinction.

When we experience God's grace, we receive favor that we do not deserve. When we experience God's mercy, we are spared punishment that we do The word “evil” no longer suggests possession by a satanic or any other kind of supernatural force.

Evil requires agency; one can’t be born with it. Terry Eagleton writes in “On Evil But do we know exactly what he meant. Or perhaps more importantly, what it means for us. Nietzsche was an atheist for his adult life and didn’t mean that there was a God who had actually died   Our love for God is manifested by loving people (Mark ), but we do not love the things of the world.

“Earth has nothing I desire besides you” (Psalm ). We cannot love this present world and God at the same time (1 John ); love for what the   What is God. God is the only one who can say, “I be that I be.” God is pure existence, self-existent, and the source of everything else that possesses existence.

He is the only necessary being, is purposeful/personal, and possesses both unity and diversity. God is also love. He invites you to seek Him and discover the love He has for you in   God has kept each of his loyal servants in his memory, as if writing their names down in a book, since “the founding of the world” of mankind.

(Revelation ) The faithful man Abel was apparently the first one whose name was recorded in the book of life. (Hebrews ) It is not just a cold list of names, though, for the book of life Fantastic Book. Short and sweet (4 1/2 hours of an audiobook--I listened to it in 2 sittings, a flight and a bus ride).

I was hoping he would get at his title "what we talk about when we talk about God" and he does. Lots and lots of good metaphors (and some cheesy ones, but ok).

Super readable too-- Accessible, accessible accessible! › Books › Christian Books & Bibles › Christian Living. The Book of Romans is a masterfully written exposition on God’s grace and the righteousness that comes by grace through faith. This book (a letter) is the foundation of the entire Christian faith and has changed the hearts of many as they read and Thank you for your question, the answer can be found in the Bible.

First we will answer, "Why Christians call the Bible the living word of God?" Hebrews For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, pie   The "canon" of Scripture is defined as the books of the Bible officially accepted as Holy Scripture.

Written by about forty authors over the course of years, it was essential that a list be drawn up of the books which reflected the truth of God's message and were inspired by the Holy Spirit. Although each book was canon in God's eyes as it Last week marked the 50th anniversary of one of the most famous magazine covers ever.

In The Gay Science (), Friedrich Nietzsche’s character of the madman had proclaimed, “God is dead.” The Time cover for April 8,turned this proclamation into a provocative question for a world where religious practice was waning.

But, though most people have heard of Nietzsche’s “God is The quote inspired an anxious Time magazine cover, and a preachy movie franchise that works hard to inoculate the faithful against atheism’s threatening seductions: “God is Dead,” wrote Friedrich Nietzsche in his book of incisive aphorisms, The Gay Science, and unwittingly coined a phrase now inseparable from 20th century culture 2 days ago  God is in control of all things and rules over all things.

He has power and authority over nature, earthly kings, history, angels, and demons. Even Satan himself has to ask God’s permission before he can act (Psalm ). That’s what being sovereign means. It means being the ultimate source of all power, authority, and everything that 2 days ago  We realize that we do not have to keep the Law in order to please God.

We realize that God's favor upon us is not dependent upon our obedience, or our law-keeping. God's favor upon us is because of what Christ did on the cross. Therefore, we are free.

The term “gospel” does mean good news. It has also been used as “the Truth”. Jesus made it good news by doing EVERYTHING for us. All we have to do to be saved is say yes. There is no work to do, else you may brag that you did something worthy of being   Well first we must read the word of God.

In the book of Acts, we see the prohibition of these foods negated: Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour: And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, and saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had We "know" that gravity is real, but that assumes that your perception of existence is real and not a dream or some sort of momentary simulation in the mind of God.

Everything you believe or know is built on a lot of assumptions that have already been processed by your unconscious mind and that is the foundation upon which we can start forming
