My Beliefs

I believe ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator JESUS IS THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD....I BELIEVE HE WAS SENT FROM GOD THE FATHER WHO SO LOVES US GAVE US HIS VERY BEST AND SHOWED HIS AMAZING POWER TO REDEEM..I BELIEVE JESUS IS THE MOST UNIQUE AMONG RELIGIOUS PERSONALITIES...I BELIEVE HE PROVED THROUGH HIS MINISTRY AND HIS DEATH AND RESSURRECTION THAT HE TRULY IS THE PERSONOFICATION OF TRUTH, HE STANDS ALONE AS SUPREME LORD..IN FACT MOHAMMAD, KRISHNA, BUDDAH, AND ALL OTHER WHO CLAIM A FOLLOWING WILL ONE DAY FALL TO THIER KNEES IN REVERANCE AND HONOR OF THE GREATEST OF ALL KINGS...JESUS!...so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth Philippians 2:10
My most powerful moment of belief was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator WHEN THE LORD APPEARED TO ME IN A VISION..NO I WAS NOT JUNKED OUT. IN 1989 JESUS APPEARED TO ME IN A VISION,&TOLD ME TO REPENT, THUS I DID. HE ALSO SET ME FREE FROM SIN, GUILT AND OTHER THINGS. THAT DAY I MADE A DECISION TO SERVE HIM...HE HAS NEVER FAILED ME AND I KNOW HE LOVES ME. I GAVE MY WHOLE LIFE OVER TO HIM AS HE GAVE ME A LIFE FILLED WITH SECOND CHANCES AND THE PRIVILEGE OF SERVING HIM.
My spiritual life means... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I GET TO WALK WITH GOD, PROCLAIM HIS KINGDOM..TELL OTHERS ABOUT HIM..PASTOR HIS PEOPLE..RAISE A FAMILY WHO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY OF EXPERIENCING HIS LOVE AND SALVATION. IT ESSENTIALLY MEANS WALKING WITH GOD EVEN WHEN LIFE IS GOOD AND NOT SO GOOD.
The biggest misconception about my faith/belief system is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator it's just one of many faiths/truths...NO ..JESUS IS THE TRUTH AND THE ONLY ANSWER GOD HAS GIVEN FOR LIFE, LIBERY, HAPPINESS, SALVATION, FORGIVENSS...READ THE WORD OF GOD.."THE BIBLE"
The tenet/practice/teaching I appreciate most about my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator GOD IS SOOOOOOO GRACIOUS...SOOO FORGIVING...SOOO KIND...SOOOO LOVING. TO KNOW I CAN COME TO HIM ON A DAILY BASIS AND RECIEVE HIS LOVE IS AMAZING. BEING A TROPHY OF GRACE MAKES ME REALIZE WHERE I COULD BE AND WHERE I COULD BE GOING (hell)....I LOVE TO WORSHIP HIM, HIS PROPHECTIC VOICE SPEAKING AND ESPECIALLY I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING A CHILD OF HIS KINGDOM!!!

My Faith History

My spiritual journey has been ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator JUST THAT " A JOURNEY" I BELIEVE GOD DESIGNED IT TO BE THAT WAY..WALKING WITH GOD IS NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED BUT FOR THOSE WHO ARE SEEKING A DESTINY!
I was raised as ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator AS NOTHING REALLY...MY FAMILY HAD NO REAL FAITH TYPICAL OF MANY ENGLISH FOLK. GOD WAS OBSCURE, DISTANT IRRELAVANT..BUT THEN TO PEOPLE WHO IGNORE HIM THAT IS WHAT WE EXPERIENCE.
Are your beliefs or practices different from your parents? If so, how and why? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator THEY TAUGHT ME NOTHING OF GOD BECAUSE THEY DID NOT CARE FOR GOD OR BELIEVE IN HIM.

How I Practice My Faith

Where and when do you practice your faith? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator EVERY WHERE I GO DURING EVERY MOMENT I BREATH I HAVE THE KNOWLEGE AND COMFORT THAT THE LOVE OF JESUS IS WITH ME. THERE IS NOT A PLACE WHERE GOD IS NOT AND WHENEVER I GO I GET TO TALK WITH HIM, WALK WITH HIM WORSHIP HIM AND ACKNOWLEGE I AM IN HIS WORLD. I LOVE YOU MY LORD. 1 person liked this
Does your family practice more than one religion or faith? If so, how do you blend the traditions? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator THEY ARE HEATHEN I AM A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN.
How easy or difficult is it to live your faith? Why? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator NOT DIFFICULT REALLY, I'M JUST A REGULAR GUY WHO RECIVED THE GRACE AND FORGIVENESS OF CHRIST. SO FAR AMERICA HAS BEEN A STRONG BEDROCK FOR CHRISTIANITY TO FLOURISH. IM NOT SURE HOW MUCH LONGER THIS WILL LAST WITH THE SECULAR, PRO LIBERAL AND ANTI CHRISTIAN VALUES THAT NOW DEFINES AMERICA, BUT I AM A VERY STRONG BELIEVER AND WILL ALWAYS SEEK TO BE A WITNESS OF MY LORD AND SAVIOUR!

Religion & the Public Square

What should be the role of religion in politics? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator IF YOU MEAN RELIGION AS IN THE 10 COMMANDMENTS WHERE THERE IS LOVE FOR GOD AND FELLOW MAN THEN YES. HOWEVER, GOD THE ALL SUPREME GOD OUGHT TO BE THE RULER OF THE WORLD AND RESPECTED, WHERE KINGS AND POLITICIANS FALL ON THIER FACES IN HUMILTY BEFORE THIER CREATOR. IN FACT POLITICS HAS BECOME MANS RELIGION OF GOVERNMENT WHERE MEN BECOME THE OBJECTS OF IMPORTANCE, FEEDING THIER EGOS AND AGENDAS. IF THE GOVERNMENT EMBRACED HOLINESS AND ETHICS AND LOVE FOR MAN, THEN WHERE IS THERE NOT A PLACE FOR RELIGION.
Should courses about religion be taught in public schools? Why or why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator ONLY IN AMERICA IS THE ATTEMPT MADE TO SEPARATE GOD FROM GOVERNMENT RULE. GOD MADE EDUCATION, ALL TRUE WISDOM IS FROM HIM AND EMINATES FROM HIM. HIS AMAZING SCIENCE AND BIOLOGY LESSON IS ALL AROUND US,IN AND THROUGH CREATION. ETHICS IS FOUND IN HIS WORD..(USED TO BE IN THE COURTROOMS TOO!) NATURE IS AN AMAZING TEACHER, HIS LAW TOO IS HIGHEST AMONG MEN. WHAT GIVES THE GOVERNMENTS THE RIGHT TO LEGISLATE WHERE GOD CAN BE SPOKEN OF AND TALKED ABOUT. HE IS THE TRUE TEACHER!!
Should the Bible, Torah, Quran or other religious texts be taught as works of literature in public schools? Why or why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator THE BIBLE HAS ALWAYS BEEN CONSIDERED THE SACRED BOOK FOR AMERICA UNTIL OBAMA DECLARED THE US A NON-CHRISTIAN NATION. BUT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE RESPECTFUL AND EVEN PROMOTED THE BIBLE BEING TAUGHT IN SCHOOL.....SOOOOO YES. WILL THE ISLAMIC NATIONS ALLOW US TO BUILD CHURCHES OR TEACH THE BIBLE IN THIER COUNTIRES WITHOUT BEING KILLED? ANSWER:NO THE TORAH HAS SIGNIFICANT HISTORICAL VALUE FOR JEWS, CHRISTIANS, & MUSLIMS SINCE IT REVEALS GODS DEALINGS NOT ONLY HISTORICALLY BUT HOW GOD COVENANTED WITH MAN FROM THE BEGINING AND SHOWS HOW A NATION SHOULD BE. ANSWER: YES
Is interfaith dialogue important? Why or why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I THINK ITS IMPORTANT TO LOVE AND RESPECT EACH OTHER AS HUMANS AND SINCE GOD LOVES ALL MEN WE NEED TO PRAY FOR THE LORD TO TOUCH EACH OF US. HOWEVER, SINCE JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY GIVEN TO MAN FOR SALVATION AS RECORDED IN SCRIPTURE John 14:6 Jesus *said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.Heb 9:24 For Christ did not enter a holy place made with hands, a mere copy of the true one, but into heaven itself , now to appear in the presence of God for us. ANY DIALOUGE WOULD BE TO EMBRACE "OTHER TEACHINGS OR SAVIOURS" IS FUTILE SINCE WE ALREADY HAVE JESUS WHO BORE ALL MANS SINS FOR SALVATION. BUT HEY COME ON OVER WE CAN HAVE COFFEE AND TALK ABOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(oh and don't forget JESUS loves YOU).
Do you feel comfortable discussing your faith with others? Why/why not? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator NO PROBLEM, JESUS SAID HE IS THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE, NONE COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH HIM. INFACT JESUS LED NICODEMUS A VERY DEVOUT MAN OF JUDAISM TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN. THE GREAT APOSTLE PAUL FOUND TRUTH IN CHRISTS WORDS AND CONQUERED NATIONS FOR JESUS. NO ONE HAS RAISED THE DEAD, DEALT WITH DEMONS, AND EVEN CONTROLLED NATURE LIKE JESUS DID.INFACT EVEN GOD HIMSELF DECLARED HIS PLEAURE FOR HIS SON. YOU TOO CAN KNOW JESUS, JUST CALL ON HIS NAME HE WILL ANSWER, I KNOW!
Do you feel that you have a duty, because of your faith, to put your beliefs into action? What are some of those actions? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator JESUS COMMANDED HIS FOLLOWERS TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO ALL NATIONS MAKING THEM DISCIPLES..SO I GUESS YES!!Mat 28:18-20 And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." SO ENOUGH SAID THEN!!
Are religious beliefs compromised by engaging in politics? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator YOU MISS THE POINT. GOD NEVER DESIGNED FOR POLITICS TO TAKE THE ROLE OF OUR LIVES, HE DESIGNED TO BE THE CENTER OF OUR BEINGS WHICH INCLUDES OUR WELFARE, WHOLENESS,STATE OF BEING, LAWS, REGULATIONS, HEALTH AND SO FORTH. THE EARLY JEWISH PEOPLE OWN THE ORIGINAL BLUEPRINTS OF POLITICAL LEADERSHIP AND GOD IS THE PRESIDENT, PRIME MINISTER, KING ALL IN ONE.
Has 9/11 had any impact on your thoughts about religion? Are you more/less interested in learning about other religions? Do you feel more/less comfortable expressing your religious beliefs? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator RELIGION AS A WHOLE NO. ISLAM THATS ANOTHER THING ALL TOGETHER. IT'S BLOODY HISTORY SPEAKS FOR ITS SELF. 9/11 IS JUST ANOTHER EPISODE IN ITS TYRANNICLE HISTORY!!
