Converting The Soul

Psalms 19:7
The law of the LORD [is] perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD [is] sure, making wise the simple.



Let's Be Like Daniel...

Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did aforetime. (Daniel 6:10)

Basic Belief

This site is a non-denominational site not just being Bible based but solidly Bible structured.

  • We believe that we are saved alone by Jesus who "came into the world to save sinners." (1 Timothy 1:15).

  • But we also believe that he commanded us to "go, and sin no more" (John 8:11)

  • This is not in our strength but Jesus is "able to keep you from falling, and to present [you] faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy" (Jude 1:24).

  • We do believe that all of us are in ignorance to the full knowledge of God's ways, however, "the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent" (Acts 17:30).

  • And if our hearts are ever in love with God, then we should not be guilty of Jesus' words. "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil" (John 3:19).

  • To find out what we should and should not do, we believe we are to "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" (2 Timothy 2:15).

  • Concluding there is a right way and many wrong ways to study, we use the method of "precept [must be] upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, [and] there a little" (Isaiah 28:10), which means that we pick a topic, collect all the verses and in so doing, we have God's Word and not our opinion.

  • And we believe that "All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works" (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Notice we are to learn from the scriptures to live righteous lives.

  • Intead, all we here is condemnation of any such thought, despite James writing, "Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works" (James 2:18).

  • In short, we are not saved by works but our works show evidence we are saved for we believe "to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness" (Romans 6:16).

    Morning Thought...

    Job 3:12 Why did the knees prevent me? or why the breasts that I should suck?

    I am not sure how many different ways Job can lament of his existence but he had a desire that after he was born to question why did his mother’s knees prevent him from crashing to the earth to die. Instead, his mother laid him on the lap with knees together and did what a typical mother would do … playing with a little baby. And then he is disappointed that his mother’s breasts worked for nourishment to sustain his life. There is evidently a series of events that Job is running through that he laments. For many verses, it was conception and then birth. Now it is the laying upon his mother’s knees and that of regular feeding via the breasts. Many people who are depressed do the same thing. They run through a series of woes of which there is just no stopping the express train of misery from rolling at high speed, with self-pity on board. If you are given to depression, do you recognize this train of calamities that you focus upon and seek help, or do you just continue to pile on the load of “woe is me” scenarios, even if they are exaggerations?

    Words Mean Things...

    Friday, June 21, 2024

    Here is yet another example where, “All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17), which includes the Old Testament that so many Christians cast away. Hebrews 13:5 encourages the study of an Old Testament scripture: “[Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” This is found in Deuteronomy 31:8, which says, “And the LORD, he [it is] that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.” So, do you cast away the Old Testament as being applicable for every day living, or do see how connected the New Testament is with the Old?

    Luke 5:20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

    In a serious manner, not automatically, ask yourself, “Just how much faith do I have in Jesus?” Is it enough for the sins to be forgiven and to cease existing in your life, or do you not have that much faith in Jesus who can say, “Thy sins are forgiven thee” and “go, and sin no more” (John 8:11)?
