Many follow their pastors that profess God, but show no true love to their followers or families of those followers. Widows are taken advantage of, pastors are digging ditches for themselves. preaching soft, cuddly, gay things. Not really spreading the gospel of Christ. They have twenty cars, and a happy life on earth they consider themselves saved.
Elders of churches are mailing prayer books to people, as if that is supposed to save and help people. How about encourage people to read their Bibles or buy a cheap bible or get one free online like biblehub
What needs to be done is to share truth of the gospel of Christ to all the nations! It’s a command.
People have tried many ways to deal with sin and reach God. Things we do like charity, giving time and money to churches, trying to be perfect and do all 10 Commandments….Things we do will never erase sin. Proverbs 14:12 and Titus 3:5, Ephesians
The sinful human nature compared to dogs and swine. In this warning, the Lord Jesus asks us not to take a holy thing and throw it to the dogs. We should not take pearls and throw them before swine. This was meant to indicate that certain people are being described as dogs and swine.

God doesnt live in temples- Acts 1:24
Jesus sticks closer to us more than anyone- Proverbs 18:24

Ron Moore’s message ( I don’t listen to him anymore),
-Sometimes God takes everything away from us to show us God is all there is.
-Glorify the Lord with moments of living
Lessons from 1 John…
-Salvation means we are saved from God’s wrath.
-Jesus died on the cross on our behalf
-We are saved to reflect God’s glory.
– We will spend eternity with Jesus.
What will you do for Jesus in this life?
– Romans 3: no one seeks after God-Jesus comes to us.
-Coming to Jesus to fix temporary problems is not salvation. God may help us with most things.
-People will hide behind questions-it’s all about dealing with sin in our lives
I don’t really have a diary or journal (that’s a women thing), wrote notes from a Christian friend’s wisdom in his Christian life, as well as various biblical sources over the years…
The Gospel is about Jesus, grace alone.
Many follow big names. We follow Jesus.
This world is sinful. As Christians we are tested all the time. What happens to us is unimportant. How we respond is: with Love, forgiveness, compassion, understanding, grace, mercy vs. ungodly behaviors.
Walk in the Lord…1 John 2:28
What people think is their business. It doesn’t affect the Christian.
Life is unfair due to our own consequences of our own actions, other times the sins of others make things difficult. Not impossible to get on with things. Look to God to make sense of things.
If your church says that in order to have eternal life…
– you need to give money to the church…
– all are saved ( universalism/catholic)
– must belong or be a member of a church group, and attend weekly church
– ask Jesus into your heart
– you can lose your salvation
– confess your sins to a priest or church staff
Run, don’t walk to the nearest exit. Never go back!
Forget all your secular theories, religious views and trust Christ and the Bible alone!
Enter the straight gate…Matthew 7:13-14
All have sinned…Romans 3:23
All false religions make you the savior. Muslims teach Jesus is not the savior. The Jewish religion teaches Jesus is not the savior. They will go to hell!
Do you put all your trust in Christ or man-made religions and self ?

A SBC preacher but was a pretty good message: “In Jesus so much more”, We the saved gained more in Jesus than Adam.
Romans 5:6- no power being lost in Adam
Sin= missing the mark
Treason is on the part of us sinners to do good
Romans 14-not of faith is sin
Thought of foolishness is sin
Isaiah 64:6- good deeds= human goodness is sin
God punishes sin. Justice is is what we deserve
Mercy is what we don’t deserve

Deadly deception by Jim Shaw….
Bible plainly states… As believers we -must not cheat, wrong or defraud anyone at anytime-Exodus 20:15, Lev. 19:13, 35; Proverbs 11:1, Ephesians 4:28.
We are to consider others needs, comfort, lives, etc., more important than our own.
Proverbs 3:27, Matt 25:31-46; John 15:12,13, Jas 2:15,16
Flee fornication and adultery- Ex 20:14, Acts 15-20, 1 Corinthians 6:18
God sends strong delusions
The Bible is clear that we must never lie or bear false witness-liars go to the Lake of Fire-Exo. 20:16, Prov. 19:5,9; Eph. 4:15, Rev. 21:8
Masonry teaches reincarnation
The Lodge teaches it is Jesus. They forever learn but never come to trust Christ alone
Masonry is not based on the Bible-but Cabala, a book of ancient magic and mysticism.
Cabalists use name Yaveh in place of Christ.

http://godsswordoftruth.com/questionsanswers.html The guy believes the rapture, a false teaching.
I used to believe in the rapture. Till I did research, study various ministries. But what convinced me the rapture is false no mention of it as a word in the Bible. Only second coming is mentioned in Bible .
indicated that people would respond in several ways to the gospel message. In one of His parables, He indicated that there were different kinds of soils. One of the soils was filled with thorns and weeds, which choked out the ability of the crop to produce fruit. The reason why these people produced no spiritual fruit is because they were more concerned with the “worries and riches and pleasures of this life”24 than with the kingdom of God. There are many other verses25 in the Bible that condemn those who seek pleasure first, instead of God’s kingdom.
God created herbs
Many Christians make the argument that God created the herbs (including marijuana) for us:
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. (Genesis 1:29, KJV)
Marijuana smokers are especially fond of the King James version, since it uses the word “herb”. However, the Hebrew word is much less specific, having the general meaning “plant,” with the root word having the meaning “green.” Furthermore, the verse talks about fruit trees, indicating that the real meaning of the verse is about edible plants. So, the verse makes it clear that God created the plants for us for eating. It doesn’t say anything about smoking them! Here is the more contemporary NASB translation:
The argument has been made that everything God created is good, and that this includes hemp. Everything God created is good,26 but all these good things can be turned into evil. Sexual relations are good within marriage,27 but adultery is evil.28 It’s all sex, which was created by God for good, but not all that men do with it is good. Poisonous mushrooms are good for breaking down dead wood, but bad for eating. Hemp is good for making rope, but bad for smoking. So, now you know. Do what’s right!
for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking [and smoking pot], but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17)
Psalm 119:50, John 16:33, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Isaiah 8,Isaiah 46:9-11, Psalm 118, 1 Peter 3, Psalm 1:19, matt 5:10, Psalm 1:12, Romans 1:12.
Don’t fear what people say or or do to you/do not fear their intimidation, do not be troubled. God is in control. Don’t let situations lord over your heart. Fear God!
Listen to kind, commendable= well sounding words or good report
Excellence= virtue, in agreement
true, just, lovely, friendly (peaceful), praiseworthy, Think on these things Jesus taught, said.
Ask does it praise God?
Continue to wait on the Lord
Continue to serve the Lord
“Blessed are you” (happiness , not tied to circumstances, a right relationship with God.
Believers will be insulted, persecuted and slandered.
People run from the truth. They see their comfortable lives as some evidence that they have the true God when they don’t really know Him. Religion is a club. Idolizing their own idea of God. They run from the truth. We are to simply share the Word of God. We are not a ministry to condemn others.
