30 truths to tame your tongue, temper & intolerance

21Jan But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self control. ~Galatians 5:22 The three things that will likely trip you up more than anything online will likely be your tongue, your temper, and intolerance for other people’s views, tastes, principles, beliefs, and behaviors. Here are 30 biblical truths to help you stay focused and call on heaven in a minute. Keep them handy. Tongue: What you say will echo throughout eternity, so getting control over your tongue (words) online (and elsewhere) is critical. Temper: If unchecked, your temper will cause you to sin, spark division, and destroy opportunities to love and minister to others. He who is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who is quick-tempered exalts folly. Tolerance: Since the Internet is buzzing with 1.6 million people a day, chances are your level of tolerance will be challenged around every corner. Post/Tweet this today:Tame your tongue.

Some surprising findings about religious people and science Turns out that if you’re snoozing on your mattress on Sunday morning, you’re actually more likely to see science and religion in conflict than the pious folks sitting in the pews. A recent survey by Pew Research Center gathered data from more than 2,000 respondents on the thorny relationship between science and religion. The findings indicate a perplexing result: Among the nonreligious, who rarely or never attend religious services, 76 percent saw conflict between religion and science — versus only 50 percent of those who attend church religiously. Think about it: Most nonreligious Americans don’t hear much about religious people who view religion and science as compatible.

Pure Church by Thabiti Anyabwile Yesterday my family and I announced the most difficult and emotional decision we’ve ever made in Christian ministry. We shared with the spiritual family and congregation we love our plans to transition from FBC Grand Cayman to return stateside to plant a church East of the River in Washington, D.C. I began to feel a sense of the Lord’s leading about two years ago. But the actual decision was reached over the last ten months. That’s when I first asked the elders of FBC to shepherd me through my burgeoning desires and to help me discern the Lord’s will.

Algeria; A Persecuted Land Where Revival Refuses to Cease Algeria; A Persecuted Land Where Revival Refuses to Cease By Aidan Clay TIZI OUZOU, ALGERIA (ANS) -- An angry mob of local Muslims, disturbed over the presence of the newly constructed Tafat Church in Tizi Ouzou, Algeria, hoped that a little intimidation would scare the congregation away for good. The mob broke in and ransacked the building one night, stealing sound equipment and lighting church property on fire. Nearly all furniture, Bibles and electrical appliances were damaged beyond repair. "They came and smashed things up.

Gerald Schroeder - Articles - Age of the Universe One of the most obvious perceived contradictions between Torah and science is the age of the universe. Is it billions of years old, like scientific data, or is it thousands of years, like Biblical data? When we add up the generations of the Bible and then add the secular rulers that followed, we come to fewer than 6000 years. Whereas, data from the Hubbell telescope or from the land based telescopes in Hawaii, indicate the number at 15 billion years plus or minus 10%. In trying to resolve this apparent conflict, I use only ancient biblical commentary because modern commentary already knows modern science, and so it is influenced by what science always. That commentary includes the text of the Bible itself (3300 years ago), the translation of the Torah into Aramaic by Onkelos (100 CE), the Talmud (redacted about the year 400 CE), and the three major Torah commentators.

All About Christian Faith The Christian faith has existed since the time that Jesus Christ was on earth. Followers of Jesus have had different understandings about many things, but all true Christians agree that Jesus Christ is a revelation of God in the flesh. We all believe that God came to earth to bring us back into a relationship with Himself. The sorry state of our world today reveals just how far we have strayed from God's original harmonious intentions. We have all strayed from God's commandments designed for our own good, and disobeyed God in an inexcusable manner, just as Adam our first father did. Just because you and I can find fault in OTHERS, even in Christians, will by no means excuse us before GOD for OUR own wrongdoing and disobedience to God.
