(Scammers, save us both some time and skip to very bottom paragraph of profile. 😁)
lt has become more and more obvious to me that l am not to marry at this time, and possibly for the rest of my life. l will follow the dictates of my Heavenly Father regarding such, and rejoice in His knowing best.
I am therefore returning fully to my first love... and choosing to focus, as intently as l can, upon the things of God. So dont contact me if you are looking for a wife. I am not in the place where l am interested in marriage.
l won't give out my phone number, so don't ask.
l've been on here a number of years, and choose to remain active in the forums until l am led to do otherwise.
So for now, l am seeking understanding as to why individuals believe as they do. Hence my activity on the forums.
Can you explain why you believe what you believe? lf so, l'd like to hear from you providing you can establish your reason for believing as you do, in a reasonable and scripturally-supported way. Please see what l mean, below.
l have found, over the last 28 years that l've studied the bible, biblical history and biblical archeology, that most people have no REAL idea of WHY they supposedly BELIEVE as they PROFESS...
Quoting any teacher, preacher, commentor, or elements of particular indoctrinations from man-made denominations establishes nothing. I am not 'a respector of persons', and you should not be either. (1 Peter 1:13-23)
Book... Chapter... and Verse... within the context of the chapter, (and at times, even the foundational understanding regarding aspects specifically relevant to that particular book of the bible), must be supportive of verses used to 'prove one's point'.
Cherry picking verses and using them out of context was... and still is...
Satan's ploy of deceiving:
- babes in Christ;
-trusting, gulliable souls; and
- just plain lazy people who hope to slide into the Kingdom without much effort on their part.
l am looking for spiritually-mature people to glean thoughts from, NOT immature, name-calling, people who behave like brain-washed children.
Think along these lines:
the CONCEPT -- is defined according to the CONTEXT -- within the CONTENT -- and established through the CONTINUITY of the primary thread of thought (ie.'the CONCEPT') -- within the particular text from which such things are being drawn from. Herein is a good format for study, and establishing the best potential understanding, and thereby - solid growth... but only if one is willing to let go of all preconceived ideas, and receive God's Truths... NOT seeking to confirm one's own thoughts and man-made, promoted 'doctrines'...
If you are interested in this idea, watch for me on the 'Forum'... l post things from time to time in the 'Ask a Guy/Ask a Girl' forums in search of understanding ... Or to share things that may be thought provoking and spiritually relevant to those who are seeking to know God, and His Word, better...
l am not saying l have all the answers, (far from it 🙄🤔🙁🙂... 😁). What l am saying is that time is short and l want to seek the face of God and those things He would have me know in order to simply 'do His Will':
Regarding Christ's thoughts on such things:
'So he answered and said unto him that told him [that his mother and brethren waited outside for him], "Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?" And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, "Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do THE WILL OF MY FATHER which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother."
Matthew 12:48-50 KJV
And even more clearly, Christ declared: "Not every one that saith unto me, 'Lord,... Lord,...' shall enter into The Kingdom of Heaven; but HE THAT DOETH THE Will OF MY FATHER which is in heaven." [these alone, will enter The Kingdom of Heaven.]
"Many will say to me in that day, 'Lord,... Lord,... have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?!' And then will I profess unto them, 'I never KNEW you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.'"
Matthew 7:21-23 KJV
So here in these few verses we can see the criteria for being recognized and accepted, as one of his TRUE followers, and indeed, professed by him as 'His Family'.
And so in true love and heartfelt desire, l seek to find the fullest understanding of God's Will that l may obtain.
I am sorry but l can no longer leave open the offer to engage in one-on-one bible studies online because l am seeking to deepen my knowledge of God,... His Word,... and His Will,... in preparation for doing other things within the time left to me.
AND PLEASE NOTE: I am not currently, nor ever intend to be, affiliated with ANY DOCTRINE except the one taught by Christ as the son, and perfect emmisary, of God to mankind.
Christ specifically stated that the doctrine he taught WAS NOT HIS, but was in fact, GOD'S Doctrine. (Jn 7:16-17)
And he also plainly stated that NOT ONE WORD HE SPOKE ORIGINATED WITH HIM (Christ), but rather, all the words he spoke were solely GOD'S WORDS, not his. (Jn 12:49-50)
Christ answered them, and said, "My doctrine is not mine, but HIS that sent me. If any man will do HIS will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, OR whether I speak of myself."
John 7:16-17 KJV
[Christ declared] "For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, HE gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that HIS commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak."
John 12:49-50 KJV
May God bless all who truly love God and His Son... amen!🌾
And eventhough, at this point, l am not interested in marriage or relationship entanglements for my own life, l most sincerely wish only the absolute best to come of your efforts if your heart be true towards the godly expression of love towards another. If that be so, may you find your heart's true desire - and may it bring glory to God, and joy to both you and the lady you find to share your life with🌾)
SCAMMERS - TAKE NOTE: l don't play games and only go so far when others do. So just to let you know where l stand:
1) l don't have money or anything most people would value;
2) l don't use WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom, Twitter, FB, etc.;
3) and l don't share personal info about my life
