Why didn’t Adam ask for forgiveness when he sinned against God?

Pastor Chilavert Nmezi asks a thought-provoking question–and answers it.   –LD

Is it not something of concern when you see all that is happening today and ask why Adam never pleaded with God to forgive him? At least the consequences would had reduced. Immediately Adam and Eve sinned everything began to work against them. The question is: “why didn’t it occur to them to plead with God?”. They instead decided to bear the burden without thinking of remedy. Read on, I will tell you why?

When God cursed Cain for killing Abel, Cain immediately pleaded with God to reduce his punishment for it was too much for him to bear which God permitted (Genesis 4: 11-15). Why didn’t Adam do the same?

Adam was not pardoned or forgiven because he had no one to stand in the gap for him. Adam was perfect before he sinned, so he needed someone perfect to plead on his behalf. What God did was to…

Apologetics Sermon Illustration #49: There are Too Many Religions Which One is True and Counterfeit Currencies

You’re sure to have encountered this, er, objection many times. Our esteemed colleague SlimJim shows us how to answer it with common sense–which is in short supply, these days.  –LD

The Domain for Truth

GO TO PART 48

Point: Have you ever faced the objection to Christianity that there are too many religions out there, how can it be that Christianity is the one that is true?  Or maybe it is phrased as “I can’t believe in any religion (including Christianity) because there’s too many other contradiction religions out there…”  How should Christians answer?

September 11 – Conspiracy Theories

I was going to write about September 11 today, but The River Walk has done it better.   –LD

THE RIVER WALK

Don’t call everything a conspiracy, like they do, and don’t live in dread of what frightens them. Make the Lord of Heaven’s Armies holy in your life. He is the one you should fear. He is the one who should make you tremble. He will keep you safe. (Isaiah 8:12-14)

Read: Isaiah 8:1-9:21, 2 Corinthians 12:1-10, Psalm 55:1-23, Proverbs 23:4-5

Relate: One of my favorite movies during my college years was Enemy of the State. In this movie, a high profile murder was caught on tape. The person taping it is running for his life and plants the tape unawares on a lawyer named Will Smith, er… I mean Robert Dean. Suddenly, this average guy finds himself running for his life while deep operatives with all the power, technology, and budget of the USA on his tail. By an accident of chance, he has become an Enemy of the State…

Let’s take a little break from bad nooze and move on to the good news of Psalm 72, via Kristi Ann’s Haven.    —LD

Kristi Ann's Haven

Trust in the LORD Jesus-Yeshua  with all thine HEART and SOUL!!

( Psalms 72:12-14 KJV ) “For He shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper. He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy. He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in His Sight.”!!

( A Psalm of David. ) “The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He Maketh me to lie down in Green Pastures: He Leadeth me beside the Still Waters. He Restoreth my Soul: He Leadeth me in the Paths of Righteousness for His Name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy Rod and thy Staff they comfort me. Thou Preparest a table before me in the presence…

A hat tip to Steve Patterson’s Courageous Christian Father blog for calling attention to this wonderful church sign from Harrogate, Tennessee. (I couldn’t find a reblog button on his page, so this will have to do.)


Keep the Lamps Full

From Marcia Settles’ blog, A Mom Looking Up: Ephesians 6: 10-18, “the full armor of God”

A Mom Looking Up

th (5)

So many of us are growing weary and are just plain TIRED. As JD Farag said recently, those of us who speak the Truth can expect to be blasted with persecution in some form or another. Even I, little me who has such a small influence, am not overlooked by the enemy. Any time I post something which exposes the dark forces at work, trouble in my personal life follows. It is no coincidence, and the enemy knows how to push my buttons-often using  my own family to put me through the wringer.

Most of us are just tired of living in this evil world. The spirit of the world is in constant battle with the Spirit within us and we will be glad when it is all over.

Still, we MUST keep our lamps trimmed. We must continue to shine the Light of Christ. We must occupy and serve…

Love your neighbour as yourself, don’t love your neighbour more than yourself.

Some wise words from Pastor Chilavert Nmezi. We are not alone.    –LD

chilavert nmezi ministries

The title of this message sounds absurd isn’t it? Sure, it is not going to be easy for you to digest but the truth cannot be taken away from the context.

Love is the most preached message all over the world. Love is the summary of the commandments. God is love. Without love our salvation is questionable. Trying to define love in its entirety according to the gospel is incomprehensible.

Leviticus 19:18 says, “…… but you shall love your neighbour as yourself: I am the Lord”.

Other verses of the Scripture such as; Matthew 19:19, Mark 12:31, Luke 10:27, Galatians 5:14, James 2:8 etc are all saying the same thing be it Old or New testament.

No matter how you love someone never do it at your own detriment. No matter how you want to show love to someone by giving, helping or doing charity work never put your life…
