The bible wasn't written by a pagan king, but was written by Pagans.

it is the reading, meditating on and application of gods word in our lives that provides the opportunity for finding purpose, truth and salvation. Not merely reading it. The history of the bible shows it is the most printed book in the last 600 years but not the most widely read, sadly. Religious dogma has replaced truth of gods word, ritual and tradition. So obtain a good translation, read and seek to understand by letting the bible explain itself. Review key things because you will begin to understand who we are, why we need help and the consequences of not reaching out for that help now. Read, listen to gods word, obey and apply his principles then you will be blessed

I wonder, if we can see signs of the Apocalypse coming, not only in social turmoil but in the natural world's decadence, Why is the church still encouraging women to have children? If we see millions of children without homes, How can it be good to encourage people to reproduce instead of adopting?

IS PRAYING TO DEAD PEOPLE A SIN? Is it a sin to pray to the Virgin Mary and other dead saints? Matthew 4:10 Then Jesus said to him, "Go Satan! For it is written,' "You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.' " Praying to any person or anything is worship. WORSHIP DEFINED: To revere, stressing the feeling of awe or devotion. Adoring reverence or regard. Any worship of anyone or anything other than God is sin. The Virgin Mary is not God nor does she have the power to grant petitions of prayer. If men could pray to dead saints and get them answered, then why not pray to saint Moses, saint John The Baptist, saint Abraham, saint Job, saint Enoch, saint The Thief on The Cross or any other dead saint? Dead people cannot hear your prayers and if they could they would not have the power to answer them. Prayer is worship and only God deserves our worship. God knows our every thought. God is aware of every sin we commit. God knows our every move. God is omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. Those are the attributes of God and what you would need in order to answer prayer. Neither the Virgin Mary, Moses, John The Baptist nor any other dead saint has the attributes of God. They cannot hear you nor can they answer YOUR PRAYERS. YES, TO PRAY TO ANYONE OTHER THAN GOD IS A SIN! YOU ARE INVITED TO FOLLOW MY CHRISTIAN BLOG. http:/steve-finnell.blogspot.com

THE DOCTRINE OF FREE-WILL The teaching that men do not have free-will evolved from the false doctrine that men are saved by grace alone. There is not one place in the Bible that has grace and alone in the same sentence. If in fact men are saved by grace alone and have no free-will, there are many things that would be true. If men have no free-will, then God would have to force men to have faith so they could be saved. If men have no free-will, then God would have to force men to repent. If men have no free-will, then God would have to force men to confess Jesus as the Christ. If men have no free-will, then God would have to force men to be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins. If men have no free-will, then God would be responsible for all of the sins of mankind. If men have no free-will, why did the men on the Day of Pentecost ask "Brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37) If men have no free-will, then why did the jailer ask Paul and Silas, "What must I do to be saved?" (Acts 16:30) If men have no free-will, then why did Saul ask, "What shall I do Lord?" (Acts 22:10) Titus 2:11 For the grace of God has appeared, bring salvation to all men. God's grace is available to all men. Grace is not forced nor is it denied to any man. MEN HAVE FREE-WILL!

UNLESS THE FATHER DRAWS HIM John 6:44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day. What is the meaning of John 6:44? 1. Does it mean only a few, who have been selected by the Father, will be saved? No, it does not. 2. Does it mean that men only respond to the gospel because of irresistible grace? No, it does not. WHO ARE THOSE THAT THE FATHER DRAWS? John 6:45 It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught of God.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me. The Father draws all who hear and learn. The Father does not force anyone to hear or learn. Men have free-will. God does not impute faith into a few so they will believe and be saved. Faith does not come by injection. HOW DO MEN HEAR AND LEARN? Romans 10:13-14 for "Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved." 14 How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? Men need to hear the gospel before they can learn and believe. The Father draws men by the gospel. Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. Faith comes from hearing the gospel. Faith does not come because the Father selected a chosen few, before the world began, to be saved. All who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior are the chosen and that includes whoever accepts God's terms for pardon. Faith does not come because of irresistible grace. God the Father draws men to Jesus with the gospel. Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek, IT IS THE GOSPEL THAT DRAWS MEN TO JESUS! IRRESISTIBLE GRACE IS NOT THE METHOD THAT THE FATHER USES TO DRAW MEN TO JESUS. Romans 10:21 But as for Israel He says, "All the day long I have stretched out My hands to a disobedient and obstinate people." Israel as a nation reject the gospel. How would that be possible if irresistible grace were in play? Israel turned away from God. Matthew 23:37 "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Jerusalem was unwilling to be drawn to Jesus by believing the gospel. They had a choice. John 5:39-40 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; 40 and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life. The Jews had the opportunity to believe the gospel of Jesus Christ, but they were unwilling. There was no irresistible grace in play. The Father draws all who are willing to believe the gospel. John 6:40 This is the will of My Father, thateveryone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day." IF YOU ARE READING THIS BLOG YOU ARE ONE OF THE "EVERYONE" WHO HAS A CHANCE TO BE BELIEVE THE GOSPEL AND BE SAVED. MEN REJECT GOD. GOD DOES NOT REJECT MEN DUE TO NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN. THE FATHER DRAWS MEN TO JESUS THROUGH THE PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL. MEN ARE NOT DRAWN TO JESUS BECAUSE THEY WERE PRESELECTED FOR SALVATION!

Ask the priest
Confession of sins

What is sexual immorality?

21 noi 2007 | ora 13.17 Society | Priest Vasile Filat

The times we live in are those in which the true values are inverted or even perverted. Their meaning is distorted from good into evil. After a 70 years period of socialism and atheism people do not longer make the difference between good and evil. That’s why, it is necessary to define these values again. So, what is sexual immorality? Some say that immoral is only when you are unfaithful to your partner of marriage. In this article I want to make a larger presentation of what God defines in the Bible as sexual immorality.

Adultery

Adultery is every sexual act where at least one of the implied persons are a part of the covenant of marriage. God is very categorical in regards to this sin and He says in the 10 commandments:

You shall not commit adultery. (Exodus 20:14)(NASB)

This was such a grave sin that it had to be punished with death, as the following passage says:

If there is a man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, one who commits adultery with his friend’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10)(NASB)

Fornication

Fornication is the sexual act where only unmarried persons are involved. Today, a very wrong opinion is spread that it is sin only to change your partner, but if you are unmarried, you are free to have sexual relations with the person you like. Even some girls, that have decided to be virgins until marriage, are mocked by the other girls around them. Fornication is a sin as grave as adultery because it affects gravely the future marriage and the eternal fate of that person. The Bible writes in this sense:

Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge. (Hebrews 13:4)(NASB)

According to the cited biblical verse, those who commit adultery defile trough this their future marriage and the marriage bed, that is their sexual relation. No one will be able to rejoice of a defiled sexual relation, but it will transform his/her future wife or husband in an unguilty victim. That’s why, if you are a man, it is important to propose marriage to a virgin and a righteous girl, and if you are a girl, to get married to a man, who didn’t live immorally. It is true that such kind of men are fewer, but they still exist. I was very glad and I praised the Lord when I heard the statement the Brazilian footballer made to journalists, that he had been virgin before his marriage and he hadn’t ever had any sexual relations with another woman. This is a real MAN and a powerful Christian, that wasn’t defeated by the pressure of the time or of the thinking, that is “in fashion”. Follow up his example! Hold your future marriage and your marriage bed undefiled.

Sexual perversions

These are a great evil and in our world the immoral people try to present them as something normal, calling them “untraditional sexual orientation”. God calls them in the Bible “abominations” and “ defiled things” and He gives a list of them. Here is the list:

None of you shall approach any blood relative of his to uncover nakedness; I am the LORD. (Leviticus 18:6)(NASB)

In continuation, the text defines clearly who are considered blood relatives, with which the marriage is banned. These are the parents, the step parents, the sister, the brother, the nephew, the niece, the aunt, the sister of the brother, the aunt from the uncle, the daughter-in-law, etc. All these sexual relations are incest. After that, the list continues with other things that are defined as perversions:

You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion. Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled. (Leveticus 18:22–24)(NASB)

Immorality of the mind

This is another way of immorality that is very spread and when a man begins to practice such kind of immorality, he will necessarily start to practice some of them or maybe all of those written above. What does immorality of the mind mean? Lord Jesus defines it in this way:

But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. (Matthew 5:28)(NASB)

The sinful nature provokes every man to lust sexually another woman than the one that is his wife. But, every man is responsible to learn to control his mind and his eyes, because who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart, and the adultery committed in the heart is equivalent to the one committed physically, because it will finally lead you to physical immorality of all kinds. That’s why, it is important to learn to control your thoughts and your eyes. The righteous Job said in regards to this:

I have made a covenant with my eyes; how then could I gaze at a virgin? (Job 31:1)(NASB)

Today, people led by the wickedness of their heart, have developed a whole industry of pornography. A very great part of Internet pages contain pornography. “Playboy” magazine, that is one with an immoral content and that spreads much immorality in the world, has 15 million readers and is one of the most read magazine in the world. If these people only realized how much evil they had brought in the their lives and families through this magazine, they wouldn’t have bought it. Unfortunately, when they realize this evil, it is too late, because their own lives and their own families have already been destroyed.
All these practices that have been listed above are sexual immorality that brings very many grave consequences unto people’s lives. Tomorrow I will publish an article about the Archangels Michael and Gabriel and in a day I will come with another article where I will touch the subject “How to protect yourself of the pressure of sexual immorality that is around?”
