Re: Whatcha reading???

I picked up a Charles Spurgeon book from the library called Till He Come. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/41ncrkCVG-L.jpg It's very powerful, especially opening my eyes to some aspects of communion that I had never considered. (Communion is not a subject I have given a great deal of...

Indeed. I hadn't heard about this somehow, so thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Suicide in the family

Hi all. I learned yesterday that a cousin of mine committed suicide a few days ago. He lived alone, so no one found the body until days later when he hadn't been in for work in a while. Nothing seemed out of place before hand, and there was no note explaining why, but dark stuff lives in our hearts ...

Re: For my cousin

Definitely will. I can't speak to every issue, especially knowing so little, but from issues I've had in the past that have been pretty darn severe, being cared about (and shown that care) helps a lot. Being there for him will do a great deal.

Well said, ccgr. Don't think I have anything to add, nicely put.

Re: Hi guys, my first question! I need help with a difficult verse!

It perplexes me how people can go into faiths with heavy edits of the original edition of their holy text. I used to struggle with this as well until a pastor presented a pair of important ideas: 1) It is your responsibility to know your theology, so read whatever translations you like but be certa...

Re: "Not my problem" said the local gaming store.

It is often the things that don't seem like big deals that are the biggest deals of them all. There is depth here, so it's good to see it through. It's not like you're making a stink out of something for the sake of being a jerk. And I've seen nothing to indicate you haven't handled it in an exempla...

Re: "Not my problem" said the local gaming store.

It sucks when people don't act like we expect, or hope for. I hear that. I'm sorry you had to have that experience, because it feels awful. Been there, it's rough. And I totally get what you mean about wanting to support local game (or other kinds) of stores and be part of the community. That's a gr...

Praises for medical results

My mother had some scary things show up in a recent medical exam, and today found out it was not cancerous. While I know God has it all in His hands regardless, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy and relieved of this result instead of something more life-threatening. We all know how this part of ...

Re: Today I learned...

TOday I learned that a Wacom tablet can be so annoying
I hear that!
Today I learned that writing comments on Facebook is a long, terrible, laborious process that is far too hard to subject the common man to.

*eye twitch*
I hear that, too! Facebook is a blessing and a curse, lol.

Re: my dad is sick

You bet. My father had the same, from years of smoking, and it eventually took his life. I miss him, but am thankful for the time we had together and am confident I'll see him again. Know you're not alone, and we'll be praying for you, your dad, and the family!

Re: Prayer Request

Absolutely. It's never easy, but when it's a child it sometimes feels so much harder. I cry out "Why, Lord?" and though I get answers, I still hate that it happens. This world is hard and dark. Will be praying for the family, church, and everyone involved.

Re: I need help! Doubts?

I think everyone has doubts, but sometimes they can be overwhelming, so I'm sorry if you're feeling that level of doubt. I myself spent some time as an Atheist because my doubts were so overwhelming, and it was a terrible dark time in my life. I wish I had a magic cure for you, but honestly one sing...

Re: Question for my friend if you can answer

I agree with CCGR on that, and also I'd add that dreams and visions are (usually) extremely personal. So someone else's dream really isn't for me (unless clearly specified) it is for the person who had that experience. The important thing is what it means to them, and how it helps to guide them towa...
