Re: How do you know God cares?

God cared for each one of them. Just like he has cared for everyone else in history who has died. If you think this life is all there is, then naturally you would think sufferings in this life are...

Re: How do you know God cares?

Trapped,

When you say God or Jesus don't "show up," what do you expect that "showing up" to be like? What isn't happening that you expect or hope would happen?

Re: How do you know God cares?

Re: How do you know God cares?

Re: How do you know God cares?

Re: How do you know God cares?

I know God cares because:

Logic: People, idealistically at least, value love and caring for others above all. It makes no sense that we would fundamentally and consistently feel that way but our...

Re: Examining LSM's Eschatology - Revelation's 7 Churches TOMES

The simple fact that their interpretation pointed to them as Philadelphia makes me suspicious.

It's like those people who believe in reincarnation and always believe they are the reincarnation of...

Re: One Publication

Just thought of this. Inspired by Ohio:

The things in your life which make the least sense to you are the ones in which God is doing his greatest work in you.

Re: One Publication

Let me put it this way:

What matters to the Lord is that which is available in any church group. What is only available in some or one does not matter to him.

Re: One Publication

I agree in principle, but the question is: To what degree do you take those efforts? Certainly you need to figure some things out, but there also needs to be some closure. God has called us to life...

Re: One Publication

The one publication is just another symptom of an extremely warped attitude.

The staunch LCers are convinced they are right. You are not going to change their minds. But your happiness or freedom...

Re: Lee and LC: Home Runs and Strikeouts

Well, each score is on a spectrum, so 100% is not better, it's just more extreme on that scale. For example, 100% introverted or extroverted would be extremes.

So, you were INTJ also? Seeing a...
