1. Who or what you pursue will ultimately determine what you do and who you become.  It is a spiritual impossibility to pursue Jesus AND sexual sin at the same time.  (Psalm 25:15)

2. As a friend of mine has often said, “God is not after our begrudging submission but rather our joy!”  And long-term joy, peace, and fulfillment are never the result of pursuing sexual sin.  (Please read Proverbs 5Proverbs 6, & Proverbs 7 for further confirmation in regards to this point.)

3. Sexual sin is not something that can be “prayed away,” nor can we simply read Bible verses about grace after committing it in order to feel better.  NOR can we simply promise God over and over that we won’t do it again (how’s that working for you?)  We CAN be set free from it…but it will not be pretty.  It must be confessed (James 5:16) and repented of (Revelation 2:21-23!)  (I did not overcome my nearly 20-year battle with pornography until I confessed it and asked for help!) YES, it may “cost you” when it comes to your reputation…but remember, the costs of concealment are far greater than the costs of confession…and repentance is WAY more important than our reputation.

4. Sexual sin costs us our spiritual esteem…people who are involved in sexual sin feel disconnected from God, guilty, and spiritually dead.

5. For those who want to STOP sinning sexually…a decision MUST be made to renew your mind (Romans 12:1-12), to FIGHT the battles in your mind (II Corinthians 10:5), and to ask GODLY men and women to come along side of you and both encourage and spur you when necessary (Hebrews 10:24-25). (PS…this means you have to stop saying, “I messed up sexually.”  OR “I made a mistake!”  Call it what it is…sin.  AND stop meeting with people who are doing the same things that you are doing and so when you get together to “hold one another accountable,” you are actually hoping that the other person “messed up” so that you don’t feel bad about doing so!)

6. Understand that IN CHRIST, you CAN have victory over sexual sin!  (See Romans 8:37I Corinthians 15:57Philippians 4:13!)  IN CHRIST, you are NOT a victim but rather a receiver of VICTORY!  If Jesus overcame DEATH, then Christ in you can help you breakthrough the stronghold of sexual sin!  (Luke 1:37!)

7. For those who belong to Christ and are trying their best to pursue Him on a daily basis but are still haunted by a sexual past…remember that is who you WERE, it is not WHO YOU ARE IN CHRIST!  (II Corinthians 5:17!)  Do not allow what used to defeat you to define you!  You are no longer defined by what you did but rather by what CHRIST did for you on the cross!

Ce este modestia si cum o percep barbatii? Acest post este in mod special pentru fete si femei. In acest video C.J. Mahaney impartaseste cateva scrisori pline de putere despre modestia in biserica.

Cu ceva timp in urma am scris un mic post si am atasat un sondaj referitor la tatuaje. Puteti citi despre acest post AICI. Foarte multi si-au dat cu parerea fereritor la tatuaje. Sunt ele pacat? Ce spune biblia despre tatuaje?

Cei interesati in acest subiect pot viziona urmatoul video in care sunt exprimate cateva pareri interesante. Desigur ca tatuajele sunt un subiect contraversat in cercurile crestine. Este ok pentru un crestin sa se tatueze? Unii zic da deoarece este arta si poate fi folosita ca si o unealta de evanghelizare. Altii zic nu deoarece este o practica satanica si biblia contrazice astfel de practici.

Care este noul mesaj al ateismului? Noul mesaj al ateismului nu spune ca religia este rea (desigur ca de-a lungul anilor au existat ateisti care au spus ca religia este rea), ci mai degraba spune ca este rau sa arati respect unui credincios. Ce rol si ce lor are acest mesaj foarte puternic si inflamator intr-o societate civilizata?
