"I know what you mean. So far, CLM is the only Christian site that's active. I've been waiting to get approval to join Faith Book for THREE weeks and I hadn't heard from them. I'm thinking of withdrawing my request. I think it;s rude to keep people hanging like that. At least CLM is more user friendly and welcoming. I've been to other sites that aren't so much"

"I have to say that every site I have been a member of seems to suffer from a sort of virus, a kind of indifference.  At least I can say CLM is the least effected.  I was a member of a site about 4 times larger with much less activity then this one.  To its credit CLM is relatively active compared to some.
I myself am far from perfect and could be a bit more active too."

"Update: Gary received news this morning. He has gangrene in his foot. There's 2 treatments they can do or they can amputate his foot. He's thinking about it right now. Please keep the prayers coming. God I ask for healing for Gary. I ask for the best doctor and medical staff. Please guide them. Please strengthen and help Gary. In Jesus Christ's name, Amen.
God bless,
Mary"

Lee Ann Mancini commented on Lee Ann Mancini's blog post I am Sinless!
"Thank you for your reply! And I totally agree with you. I’m saying we are sinless only because we, as believers, have a sinless nature in us and that is Christ Jesus. But we are still sinners in OUR sinful nature. Both natures dwell within us. And this is the dual nature Paul writes about in Romans. "

Tyrell King commented on Lee Ann Mancini's blog post I am Sinless!
"Dear Sister; I pray that you'll have an open heart and an open ear to what I'm going to say. 1 John 3:9 is not talking about us being sinless. We know that, when John writes that believers do not continue to sin, he is not referring to sinless perfection because of what he writes elsewhere in the same epistle. To believers John says, “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). The reference is to mean that believers will not continue practicing sin as a way of life.
AMEN....

"Yes, I agree God can speak to us in many ways. Through nature, dreams, people, events, he is beyond the words from the Bible. Yes, the Bible is the authority but God has a greater reach. "

Patrick Christian commented on Patrick Christian's blog post Verse of the Day for Friday August 23, 2019 in The Top 100 Bible Verses
"Thank you for your insight, Mary! Yes, I certainly agree. I saw the last part of the verse as the part that needs to happen first. When a person approaches the dinner table, or when someone is preparing to act on something with delicacy or importance, they tend to make sure they are in their right mind and that they are clean. It is good to go to God as a sinner to ask forgiveness, but to "draw near" to Him we are expected to be clean at that point. Clean and in the right mindset, and with pure heart."

Mary Osborn commented on Patrick Christian's blog post Verse of the Day for Friday August 23, 2019 in The Top 100 Bible Verses
"This verse and I have a history. The KJV says nigh instead of near. Have you ever waltzed around a word and never bothered to look it up? Yeah, I finally looked up nigh in the dictionary. Oh, it means near. This was back when KJV was the main Bible. There wasn't that many different versions back then. It's a good lesson for everyone. If you don't understand a word, dig out a dictionary or do a little research. Or, you can always come here to CLM. There are other believers who can help. 
So, anyway that "draw near to God part" told me I must draw near to God first. Then, He will draw near to me also. God expects a two-way street. I wonder if God feels like He's flapping His gums sometimes. If you draw near to God, then allow Him to draw near to you. If you say something to God, then stop talking and allow Him to speak. And be patient. God isn't forced to speak. God knows if a person has a deep desire to hear His voice. He won't disappoint you. He wants to talk to us as much as we want…"

It's Finney Friday!

This quote is sadly so true with most Christians, today even more than in Mr. Finney's days. May we all change this in our own lives:

"It is the great business of every Christian to save souls. People complain that they do not know how to take hold of this matter. Why, the reason is plain enough; they have never studied it. They have never taken the proper pains to qualify themselves for the work. If you do not make it a matter of study, how you may successfully act in building up the kingdom of Christ, you are acting a very wicked and absurd part as a Christian." - Charles Grandison Finney

Here is an excellent article by Colin Smith on Unlocking the Bible website:

How Can I Avoid a God-Centered Life?

I previously wrote that Christians aim to live a life that is centered on God, but you can also avoid one. I want to discuss this by looking at the life of Jonah so that you won’t avoid a God-centered life but cultivate one.

You can avoid it for a lifetime.
Jonah was running from God at the beginning of the story, but he was also arguing with God at the end of the story. Even after God used him in a remarkable way to evangelize to a pagan city, he was still out of sorts with God.

That raises the interesting question of when Jonah wrote the book. I assume that the book was written late in Jonah’s life, because I don’t think you can write under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit while you are arguing with God! So, later in his life, Jonah looks back on his ministry and sees how he avoided a God-centered life.

He gives us this account of his experience, essentially s…
Patrick Christian commented on Zomok, steve's blog post God does not speak through the Bible only!
"I completely agree that God speaks to us through multiple ways. Via other Christians, non-believers, nature, current events, dreams, etc. It is all His creation, and He uses it for our benefit and for His glory. The Bible is one of many ways He speaks to and through us."
