Anyone can follow, and the ask box is always open for questions, comments, advice, or prayer requests. Submissions are open as well, so submit any ideas you want to contribute to the blog. God bless!
Grace and peace to you all.
You all are the bomb.com. For real. Putting up with our abandonment of this blog. Jimmy and I are no longer a couple. This is not to be thought of as sad, because God simply didn’t have our relationship in His plans. Jimmy and I are still friends. He lives in southern California now and goes to college there, at a wonderful Christian university. Unfortunately, he does not have time for Tumblr anymore because of his studies. And as this blog was supposed to be run by the two of us as a couple, I will most likely be deleting this one within the next week or so.
HOWEVER! I am still prayerful considering this, but I was thinking of starting a Bible study blog of my own. My original idea was to focus on young women, like a women’s small group Bible study type of thing. But if there are any guys out there who DESPERATELY want Bible studies by me done for both genders, please let me know. Also if anyone has any suggestions or critiques, I would love love love to hear them. Please let me know your opinions soon, because I would like to start this new blog as soon as possible.
Grace and peace and much much much much MUCH love!
God bless <3
I saw your post about the stupidity of atheism and I just wanted to say I disagree with you. I'm not trying to hate. I feel that you should do a little research before concluding that atheism is inaccurate. In actuality, I've found Christianity/The Bible to be far more inaccurate than atheism. I would love to have a healthy debate about it sometime and hear your opinions.
Oh my, I apologize. I have no idea when this message was sent, because I haven’t been on this blog in quite awhile. I’m sorry if that post offended you :/ Two people used to run this blog, my boyfriend and I, but we aren’t together anymore so this blog got kinda abandoned. I think he posted that atheism one. ANYWAY, I might be starting up a new Bible study blog run just by me. Probably for young women actually. Maybe. I’ll post it on this blog if I actually decide to do something. But I’d love to have a discussion with you! That’d be great! You can also talk to me on my personal account! My URL is jetaime-e.tumblr.com. Sorry, I hope you weren’t waiting too long for this reply!
For real, thank you to those who have stuck with us. We’re obviously very terrible at keeping commitments!
There will be a new bible study soon, though! No worries! :)
Just to clear something up.
An upside down cross is NOT a symbol of a Satan worshipper. It’s actually a symbol of discipleship. Peter, one of the twelve disciples, was tried and sentenced to death. The Romans wanted to crucify him just as they had Jesus, but Peter said he was unworthy to die in the same way that Jesus had, so he aske to be nailed to a cross, and for that cross to be hung upside down.
Alright guys. The big one. Sex.
Why sex must be limited to marriage:
"You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the Lord your God to pay any vow. No one is to become a prostitute." Deut. 23: 17, 18.
Okay, this verse may seem a BIT random. If you have a premarital sex, it doesn’t make you a prostitute, this is just an example. Prostitution makes a mockery of God’s original idea for sex, treating sex as an isolated physical act rather than an act of commitment to each other. Outside of marriage, sex DESTROYS relationships. Within marriage, it can be a relationship builder. Young people need to be constantly reminded about premarital sex.
Dealing with sexual pressure:
"But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion." 1 Corinthians 7:9.
Sexual pressure is not the best motive for getting married, but it is better to marry the right person than to “burn with passion.” Many new believers in Corinth thought that all sex was wrong, and so engaged couples were deciding not to get married. In this passage, Paul was telling couples who wanted to marry that they should not frustrate their normal sexual drives by avoiding marriage. This does not mean, however, that people who have trouble controlling themselves should marry the first person who comes along. It is better to deal with the pressure of desire than to deal with an unhappy marriage.
get off of tumblr
this is awful
i love my girlfriend and i do not believe in god
im not evil
i don't need help
im reporting this blog
You’re reporting us for….? Being against your beliefs? Aren’t you against OURS. Just so you know, every single human being on the planet is evil. Don’t think I’m singling you out just because you’re gay. My brother’s bi. Just because I believe homosexuality is a sin, doesn’t mean I hate you. If you’re going to tell me to get off Tumblr, I think you’ll have to do it yourself.
Grace and peace to you!
Message us your favorite writer from the Bible and tell us why! Mine is Paul, because he was so faithful to God, even when he was in chains. Anel’s is James, because he’s so straightforward. Tell us who’s writing you enjoy? Or you could do your favorite book, if you wish! God bless you! :) -Megan
Scripture forbids it.
“‘Haven’t you read,’ he replied, ‘that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh, so they are no longer two, but one. Therefore, what God has joined together, let man not separate.” Matthew 19: 4-6.
Reasons for homosexual desires are complex and serious. Christians should not trivialize the situation or flippantly condemn the homosexual person. But Jesus made God’s ideal very plain. At creation, he approved one kind of marriage bond, man to woman. These become one flesh - one before God. Heterosexual monogamy is God’s plan for marriage - the best plan, the only one.
"Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty of their perversion." Romans 1:26, 27.
God is willing to receive anyone who comes to Him in faith, and Christians should love and accept others no matter what their background. Yet, homosexuality is STRICTLY forbidden in scripture. Homosexuality is considered an acceptable practice by many - even some churches. But society does not set the standard for God’s law. Many homosexuals believe that their desires are normal and that they have the right to express them. Desires that violate God’s laws must be controlled. If you have these desires, you can and must resist acting upon them. Consciously avoid places or activities you know will kindle temptations of this kind. Remember, God can and will forgive sexual sins just as He forgives other sins. Prayer, Bible study, and strong support in a Christian church can help you to gain strength to resist these powerful temptations. If you are already deeply involved in homosexual behavior, seek help from a trustworthy, professional, pastoral counselor.
