Faith is a Journey

I have seen and read the "Statement of Faith" of various churches and religious organizations which they seem to hold up as the undeniable and unbendable proof of their faith. It seems that they are saying that (their) faith is, or has been, a result of very precisely following the formula of "read the bible, pray, go to church, accept Christ as Saviour, etc." The path can be (at least in their minds) be very clearly traced along a specific religious path.

The Paradox of God's Intervention

Submitted by Stephen Winters
Blogs: 

Christians often pray that God may save this person or that person, or that God will cause something to happen. And yet at the same time Christians say that God condemns people who don't "accept Christ, etc.". There is a paradox here. Is it God that changes our hearts, or are we responsible to change our hearts? If God is the one who changes our hearts, then why do Christians say that God condemns those who "don't change". On the Other hand, if we are responsible to change, then why do Christians pray that God will change our hearts? Which way is it?

"Have you say that you valued the business advice section of the website has kind of confirmed something that I've been doing, and want to do more of: writing articles on the business, record keeping-bookkeeping, and management parts of upholstery. These are the topics that interest me a lot, partly because my business was so deficient, and we suffered greatly, in those areas in the past. There is still a lot that I want to write in those areas, as I have time."

Learning to Live in God

One might say that the true God is the embodiment of everything that is true, honorable, virtuous, and true. It is not enough to say that God "has" love, but God Himself is the essence of all that is true love. The converse is also true. All true love is God. In a very real sense we "worship" God and "live" in God by living a life of true love. The same is true of all the other virtues and character qualities. We live in God as we endeavor to live them out and express them to the fullest. How do we do that?
