Are you a liar???

So how naive are people that call themselves Christians???

"My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, "I have come to know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked." I John 2:1-6

I am seeing people saying that they are Christians and then saying they are going to live with their boyfriend or girlfriend. Saying it's ok to lay on a bed together (though fully clothed) behind a closed door under the same blanket, while not being married. I see people saying it's ok to burn cd's even though it is breaking the law and is stealing. I see people hiding porn in their lives. I see people flirting with homosexuality. I see people getting completely drunk (even underage) and then going to church later in the week. I see people admiting their actions were sinful but then they say they can't help it, their just human. I see people doing drugs and going to church later in the week. I see people talking about living a holy life then listening to music that promotes and encourages sin. I see people giving God glory for things and then agreeing with evolution. I see people justifying items that give the appearance of evil. I see people calling someone who stood up for Christ prejudice or hateful just because their wrong actions were brought in to the Light. I see people talking about how much they love their Lord and then taking His name in vain... or using other vulgar language. I see people having sex outside of marriage and justifying it. I see people saying they can't stop sinning because they are just human. I see people saying it's wrong to have sex before marriage but then promoting condoms.

How big is your God?? What did Christ really die for?? Are we just staying a step ahead of the world or are we going to look at Christ as our standard??? Are we going to keep living this life as if it is our own or are we truly going to surrender to Christ?? It isn't a one time act and 'poof' it's all good. Die to Christ daily.

I Corinthians 15:31

Are you Christian in your words only??? Or are you actually living as Christ... walking as He walked. Stop playing games. The luke warm will be spewed out of His mouth. Revelation 3:16

Are you reading your Bible daily??

This is the only way we can truly get to know our Lord and Saviour. He is the very Author of the Book. What a better guide. Why are you considered way out there and a Christian weirdo if you read your Bible daily. This is just something that we are asked to do as a Christian. Ephesians 6:10-24

Be a revolution- "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. " Romans 12:2

Wow. God has been like really busy with me the past week. I didn't know one person could learn/experience so much in that amount of time. I also didn't quite realize He could grab ahold of you and shake up what you thought was reality this much. It's good though. He sees the big picture fortunately.

I had this read to me this weekend too...

Lucy is giving her friend, Charlie Brown, some advice. After listening to Charlie's problems, she said, "Charlie, some people's life is like a folding chair on a great cruise ship. Some people prefer to sit at the back facing backward to see where they have been. Others prefer to sit at the front facing forward to see where they are going. Others sit in the middle to take in the present. Now, Charlie, which way do you like to face your folding chair?" Charlie replies... "I don't know, I've never been able to get mine unfolded."

R U a good man? Is He ladies?

I did not write this. I do not know who did.... but I want to post it and share this because I thought it was great and said it like it is...


R U a good man? Is He ladies?

Ladies need to read this CAREFULLY!
Gents, read this also and ask yourself if you possess all of these qualities! It's all about loving Jesus! Great post!!!!

God's formula for a good man!!!

A good man is a SAVED man

When and if a person truly gets born again (John 3:3) then there will be a change in him. It may take time but there will be a evidence of a change. That is the outward evidence that a person is truly saved for only God knows the heart...

Therefore, the first quality of a good man is that he is saved, knows it and shows it. He will begin to look at himself and not like what he sees. He will make improvements in his life. He will want to please his Lord and Saviour.

A good man is a GOD-FEARING man

A man that is saved will fear the Lord. Fear in this sense does not mean to be afraid of someone but rather to have a healthy respect for that person

A good man is a STUDENT of the Scriptures

A man who takes at face value whatever he is told the Bible says, without ever studying it on his own, is lazy. A good man will not only read his Bible every day but he will also study it. He will not take what others say as "gospel" but will search the Scriptures, "A man won't be a real man until he knows the Book." - Dr. Michael E. Todd


A good man uses God's Word when trials and temptations come along. He can't do this unless he has committed God's Word to memory. A good man will talk about the things of God and his conversation will be directly affected by what's in his heart.


(Psalm 37:31) The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

It is not enough for a man to read, to study and to quote Scripture. He must also obey what He reads in God's Word. The more a man reads and studies the Bible the more the Holy Spirit will reveal to him. It is what man does with that revelation that is important.

A good man is a man of PRAYER

A good man will have a good prayer life. A good man will have an open line of communication with God. That means that he has to know what his sins are. You won't have to tell him. And he will constantly and consistently confess them to God. A good man will get things right with God first because God is most important in his life.

A good man will pray for his family, his wife or wife-to-be (even if he doesn't know who she is yet) and his children (even if he doesn't have any yet). If he is single then he is asking the Lord to send him a good helpmeet (Proverbs 18:22). If he is married then he is asking God to help him take care of the precious "ruby" he was given (Proverbs 31:10). If he doesn't have children he is asking God to give him a heritage (Psalm 127:3). If he has children then he is asking God for help in guiding their lives (Ephesians 6:4).

A good man prays for his pastor. If he does then he will not be tempted to criticize him. He will not wish to partake of "roast preacher" on Sundays. A good man prays for others. He is not selfish, only thinking of himself and his own needs. He will try to help others if the Lord lays it upon his heart to do so. Spiritually, he will be a Good Samaritan.

Lastly, a good man will pray for himself. He will ask the Lord to direct his steps and to be in His will. (Genesis 24:27 - And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who hath not left destitute my master of his mercy and his truth: I being in the way, the LORD led me to the house of my master's brethren.) A good man will not make a move unless he hears from the Lord. This will include his choice for a future wife, which will be to your advantage, should you be that choice

A good man WINS SOULS

A good man will not be ashamed to let others know that he is a believer in Jesus Christ. He will want to share with others the good news about what God did for them

A good man WORSHIPS God

(Genesis 24:26) And the man bowed down his head, and worshipped the LORD.

A good man attends church. That is a good place to worship God. At church he can be with other men who are like-minded in their beliefs. A man spends most of his time in the work force with ungodly people. Therefore one of the greatest times of spiritual refreshing for a man will be in church. A man needs to "recharge his spiritual batteries" every chance he can get.

Another good place to worship God is at the family altar. This is the time he spends in special prayer and Bible reading with his family.

A good man PROVIDES for himself and his family
A good man does not smoke, drink or gamble away his or his wife's paycheck or savings. He does not take food out of the mouths of his children or clothes off their back in order to feed his own shameful habit. A good man will put the physical needs of his family before his own.

Most men disable themselves by sin. Drunks and drug addicts find it difficult to hold down a good job. They are more interested in providing for their habit than they are for their families.

A good man is INCOMPLETE

(Genesis 2:18) Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him." .

God determined that man was not meant to live his life alone. When God created the world he made everything in pairs. His command to them was to be fruitful and multiply. When Noah took male and female with him on the ark it was to reproduce and repopulate the earth after the flood. Likewise, when God made created Adam and Eve their primary responsibility was to populate the earth. They couldn't do that without the benefit and pleasure of having sex. God intended for a man and a wife to enjoy themselves. The shame and sin comes when a man and woman enjoy the benefits outside of marriage. (Genesis 2:24) Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

A good man will love his wife as God intended him to. He will not put his family, especially his mother, above his wife. He will not side with his family or mother against his wife. He will not put his children above his wife. God's ordained order in the family is God as head, the husband under God's authority, the wife under her husband's authority and the children under the authority of their father and mother. Any deviation from this will cause chaos in the home. Once a man leaves his family to marry, even if he has to live with his parents afterward, he is to put his wife above all others, except God. The Bible clearly admonishes him to do this. If he doesn't he is in disobedience to the Lord. A good man doesn't beat up his wife physically, emotionally or mentally. Any man who beats up a woman is not much of a man. He is a bully. A good man loves his wife according to the example of Christ and His bride, the church, for which He died.

A good man will LEAD his family

Fathering children is not something to be taken lightly. Psalm 127:3 tells us that, "Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.." Any man that has children and then does not take the responsibility of raising them or providing for them will have a lot to answer for at the judgment

A good man SERVES the Lord

There are many things to do in the Christian walk. They are many opportunities to serve the Lord. A good man will seek out those opportunities and take advantage of them.

A good man is a WISE man

A good man will definitely know the difference between good and evil. A good man will seek God's wisdom and not his own. A good man will also seek the advice of his pastor who may see things that he himself does not. Proverbs 11:14 - "Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety."

A good man will try to avoid sin. Proverbs 1:10 - "My child, if sinners entice you, turn your back on them!." A good man will not seek the companionship of fools or allow others to talk him into something that he knows is against God's law or His will.

A good man is HUMBLE

(John 3:30) He must increase, but I must decrease.

A good man will be humble. He will not seek the spotlight but gladly let others who are more talented, more creative, or more knowledgeable be out front. A good man will not get jealous when others are praised or rewarded even if he should have received that praise or reward.

A good man is not known by his talents or his abilities, or by his looks or his appearance, his wealth, his fame, or his fortune. A good man is known to God by his heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 - "But the Lord said to Samuel, "Don't judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn't see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart

2 Corinthians 6:14-17 tells us, "Don't team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil[? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever? And what union can there be between God's temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:

"I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don't touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you,"

Good and evil are opposites, so are light and dark. Opposites, in the spiritual realm, cannot exist together. They will be at odds with each other.

If you've messed up and asked God for forgiveness then He has forgiveness you. Now forgive yourself. 1 John 1:9, "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."

A good man WAITS on God

(1 Thessalonians 5:21) but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good..

A good man will check out any girl that he is interested in first before he takes that final step toward marriage. Are you faithful? Are you growing spiritually or are you at the same level you were the day you got saved? Are you in God's will? Are you willing to be submissive? Do you have a meek and quiet spirit? Are you seeking the Lord for a mate? Are you worthy to be the wife of a good man?

Psalm 37:23, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way."
