Christ, they only lost one game. When was the last time that was done, a hundred years ago
After close to a year of traveling, I had seen things in the world and in myself, both good and bad, that I had never noticed before. I was struggling daily with pride and insecurity, homesickness and loneliness, with the burden of picking up my cross and following Jesus. This journey produced a new hunger for redemption in me.
I counsel you, in the words of Jesus Christ, to 'watch and pray I always lest ye enter into temptation for Satan desireth to have you, that he may sift you as wheat' (3 Nephi 1818). If you will earnestly seek guidance from your Heavenly Father, morning and evening, you will be given the strength to shun any temptation.
Being much troubled to see the falseness of the constitution of the Church of England, I had like to have turned Separatist. Whereupon I kept a day of solemn humiliation and pondering of the thing this scripture was brought unto me-he that denies Jesus Christ to be come in the flesh is antichrist.
Jesus died for somebody's sins, but not mine - My sins are my own, they belong to me.
what happens someday if more people own my record than the bible that will make me god because a lot more people believe in me than him Because itsjust about popularity. ther are plenty of people in the world how have never heard of jesus, while America takes him for granted. The key is to change what is popular. that's why rather than submit to to the mainstream, you have to become it then over come it
Look at Christ, my dear friend: His life was divine through and through, full of self-denial, and He did everything for mankind, finding His satisfaction and His delight in the dissolution of His material being.
I say, traitors; as some men live upon the reward of treachery, for their quiet and liberty; if it may be called a liberty, as it is redeemed with the betraying of the interest of Christ, and the blood of His people.
They're making a big stink out of every little thing, ... It seems Moore is working the industry better than Mel Gibson did for 'The Passion of the Christ.'
Polygamy was officially discontinued in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1890. Those groups which continue the practice in Utah and elsewhere have no association with us ... and most of their practitioners have never been among our members ... It will be regrettable if this program, by making polygamy the subject of entertainment, minimizes the seriousness of that problem.
The Church is presided over personally by Jesus Christ.
We pray that the deceitful race - such hateful enemies and blasphemers of the name of Christ - be not allowed to further infect and trouble this new colony.
Why worry about minor little details like clean air, clean water, safe ports and the safety net when Jesus is going to give the world an Extreme Makeover Planet Edition right after he finishes putting Satan in his place once and for all
We must not sit still and look for miracles; up and doing, and the Lord will be with thee. Prayer and pains, through faith in Christ Jesus, will do anything.
The righteousness of Jesus Christ is one of those great mysteries, which the angels desire to look into, and seems to be one of the first lessons that God taught men after the fall.
God looked down on this country because this country was founded on the rock and that rock was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And when the storms came and the rains came, the rock, it did not move. But over the last 15 or 20 years, something began to erode.
Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
After the 911 attacks, attendance at Living Word Church swelled for several Sundays and a few people found salvation in Christ. It only lasted about a month, but now our whole church is turned upside down and people are afraid about the future, ... We're working around the clock, and we know things won't be the same for a good while.
Rather than allow themselves to be separated from the love of Christ, they submitted cheerfully to every privation, to contumely and disgrace, and to death itself.
Well, he ought to drop to his knees and thank baby Jesus.
She filled her house with blacks, and white parsons who went around preaching Jesus was a revolutionary, and then when the police walked in she was surprised
The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Great Physician, heals people and makes them whole again. And we've got to be out there as God's people, obeying the Great Commission.
I don't preach a social gospel I preach the Gospel, period. The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is concerned for the whole person. When people were hungry, Jesus didn't say, Now is that political or social He said, I feed you. Because the good news to a hungry person is bread.
Following the way of Jesus Christ and doing all we can for His cause and for our fellow men expresses something of our worship in action. But how to give Him a present to express our love is a bit of a problem. How can you give God anything when He owns everything But does He How about that power to choose, that precious free will that He has given to every living personality and which He so greatly respects That is the only present we can give our selves, with all our powers of spirit, mind, and body, willingly, freely given because we love Him. That is the best and highest worship that you and I can offer, and I am sure that it is this above all that God most highly appreciates.
Then Christ shall be clothed with all the beauty of the elect as if with a long tunic variously adorned, in which He shall shine as if covered with all manner of precious stones.
Every religious pioneer, including Jesus Christ, was persecuted by his contemporaries. But once people understand me, their turn can be dramatic like Saint Paul's.
Day by day we should weigh what we have granted to the spirit of the world against what we have denied to the spirit of Jesus, in thought and especially in deed.
The history of those who shed those other tears, the history of those anonymous millions, is what Terkel wants readers and listeners to come away with. What's it like to be that goofy little soldier, scared stiff, with his bayonet aimed at Christ What's it like to have been a woman in a defense-plant job during World War II What's it like to be a kid at the front lines It's all funny and tragic at the same time.
When I was snorting coke up my nose, they didn't call me crazy. When I said I saw Jesus, that's when they said I was crazy.
Some relate ... that the eagle tries the eyes of her young by turning them to the sun which if they cannot look steadily on, she rejects them as spurious. We may truly try our faith by immediate intuitions of the Sun of Righteousness. Direct faith to act itself, immediately and directly on the incarnation of Christ and His mediation and if it be not the right kind and race, it will turn its eyes aside to anything else.
