Praise Ye The Lord

    The Bible commands us to praise God.  We're to praise Him in good and bad times alike.  Now, I would be lying if I said it's easy to praise God when things are going wrong in our lives.  It's not, however, our praise cannot be conditional.  He's God no matter the battle.

    There are many things we can thank and praise God for every day.  What one thing will you thank Him for right now?

    Me?  I thank Him for showing me what I needed most in life:  JESUS

        It' a sad thing Yolanda that this sort of hub will always attract the decriers and mockers.  I quite agree with you.  Being thankful and prasing God in the bad times is very difficult.  As humans our first reaction is to get angry and ask 'Why me?', 'What have I done to deserve this?'
        I try to thank God for all the little things that happen in my day, like finding a parking spot when it's really busy in town. 
        At this moment in time I am thankful just to be upright and mobile this morning, wasn't sure I would make it today.

          Funny, that's almost exactly what every child who starves to death each day probably thinks, too. You folks obviously have much in common with god...

          ...except of course, the food thingy.



          I get it now, that makes perfect sense, your god is so busy finding you parking spots, he forgot to feed the kids again. Doh!

          And I thank Him with you. Our God is a good God.  He's always got our back.  Satan wants us to believe otherwise, but we know He is the father of lies, for our God will never let us down. Even though sometimes it seems He has.  But that's never true.  We'll never find anyone so completely concerned about all areas of our lives as is our God.  And then so capable and ready to meet us at the point of that need.


          He is worthy of our praise always, even in the hard times, simply because of who He is.  And I'm a living witness that when the praises go up, blessings do come down.  And for me personally the greatest blessing that comes down is His manifested presence, because once that happens I truly become aware that He is The Most High and that every obstacle, though above my head, is absolutely under His feet.

          Glory to the King of Kings, my God and Lord.

          And as for the decriers and mockers, there presence on these types of threads only prove that we must be doing something right.

          Thank you, my sister in Christ for your positive feedback.  God bless you.

            So - you are just here for a fight then? I had recently come to the conclusion that Kristians like your self - while going against the Word of God - are just wanting to become martyrs. I have only ever seen you fighting with those who do not believe as you do. What do you think you are going to achieve by causing conflicts in this way?

            Odd that you do not see how divisive your ridiculous beliefs are. A shame in fact. sad 

            But I am sure Satan is very pleased with the ill will and arguments you create by behaving like this. wink

                Not really. I don't expect to be able to educate you. If you think homosexuals are abominations in the eyes of the Lord who will burn for all eternity - I don't expect to be able to change your mind. If you think eating shellfish is another abomination - well, what can I do in the face of such nonsensical beliefs?

                If you feel publicly praising your imaginary friend is something you need to do - I don't expect to be able to teach you how divisive that is.

                I don't care what ridiculous beliefs you hold. Really - I genuinely don't care. The only reason it is even an issue - is - you need to tell me. wink

                  You've read a hub that is of no interest to you.  You 've responded to that hub and you keep checking back to see if anyone has responded to you.  What a waste of time and energy on something you don't care about.
                  I am curiuos though, what do you think you could teach me?  Or are you assuming that I am one of those not very bright, poorly educated red necks you automatically associate with Christian belief?
                  Insults and belittling comments only work when they contain a seed of truth.  Trying to attack me with derogartory comments based solely on your assumptions, predjudices and preconcieved ideas is as much a waste of time as getting angry over a hub on a topic you don't care about.

                    I happen to believe that your religion is evil and choose to argue against it.

                    You are claiming to be Christian - I assume you believe the bible. I think that is a reasonable assumption - and seeing as the bible tells me that shellfish, homosexuality and divorce are all sins I think it is reasonable to think you adhere to those.

                    Or is it only "poorly educated rednecks" that believe what the bible says? wink

                    I am trying to teach you how divisive and irrational your religion is. Please don't take my word for it - think about why you are arguing now and read a few history books.

                      Then you do care.

                      I'm not arguing.I am merely providing you with an opportunity to express your own poor deductions and false assumptions with no effort at all. 
                      For instance, your attacks are based on what you assume I believe and how you assume I interpret what the Bible teaches.  That you start from an erroneous hypothesis means all further conclusions to your argument are incorrect.
                      Any argument based on an emotional response, in your case your hatred of my beliefs, is bound to be faulty since emotional response clouds our ability to think logically.
                      If you were thinking clearly you would have known to ascertain the facts of what I believe first, then proceeded with your argument.

                      If I can read books by Richard Dwakins, Christopher Hitchens and Steve Jones as well as numerous historical texts (my particular field of interest is the  18th and 19th century) and still believe in God I fail to see what chance you have of convincing me otherwise.

                      Mark i would ask you to consider why you believe that homosexuality and divorce are not sins. it doesn't mean that a homosexual or someone who has been divorced can not make it to heaven, but they are still given a choice to follow Christ or not. Sin is sin, no matter what sin it is. there is now sin that is worse than another. so i pray for anyone who does not know Christ because he is the only way to the Father. He is the one that takes on those sins, we can not earn our way into heaven. We are paid for with a price, the price that Christ paid for by shedding his blood for us on the Cross. We are all sinners who are in need of a savior. Including you. So i pray that God begins to reveal himself to you, that you may be part of the kingdom of God.

There is more than enough logic and critical thinking to support why God is the creator of all things, including you.

        Quran start with the Praise of God Allah YHWH:
        [1:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
        [1:2] All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
        [1:3] The Gracious, the Merciful,
        [1:4] Master of the Day of Judgment.
        [1:5] Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help.
        [1:6] Guide us in the right path —
        [1:7] The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

                Joining a church to feed children has nothing to do with it. The church has their god, they can simply pray for their god to not give them so much abundance and give a little to the kids.

                Are they praying for this? If so, why does your god not answer their prayers?

              Hey Q, this pathetic argument about why "GOD" allows others to go without food is meaningless and cannot be defended. That means, you cannot receive an answer, so what is the sense of asking the question.

              The only reason for people starving in this world is due to the fact that other people are not doing enough to help them.

                On the contrary, this "pathetic" argument, as you call it, has received many answers.

                I would doubt it is meaningless as it hinges on the very cornerstone of those beliefs. Perhaps, the argument, being so pathetic in your view, has lost all meaning to you simply because you have judged it to be pathetic simply as a display of some personal inadequacy on your part. Who knows?

                The answers themselves, although quite predictable and equally baffling, demonstrate many contradictions in their faith as well as their system of belief.

                Is any among you sick?  Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him.   (James 5:14-15 ASV)

            This commands us not to seek medical treatment.  Of course, you've most likely visited doctors before, so you've already gone against the word of your god. smile

              In reading the scripture you chose (brilliant choice I might add) I notice that it doesn't preclude other options in addition to the prayers of the faithful. Following the instruction of this scripture can easily be done from a hospital bed or home or anywhere. Your conclusion that this commands us not to seek medical treatment is very narrow at best.

                That's odd, I didn't read that at all in the biblical quote provided. It clearly stated "the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up"

                Where do you see divinely produced doctors in that script?

                Aren't most doctors atheists? Was that another prerequisite?

                  I don't know.  I suppose I would have to ask 'most doctors' before I jumped to any conclusions about the beliefs of 'most doctors'.  I do know quite a number who are Sikh, Hindu,Moslem and even a couple of Bhuddists as well as some who are Christians.  It's never occured to me  having a religious conviction would preclude a person from joining the medical profession.

                    Okay, but we can conclude on the first point that the bible says nothing about doctors and everything about god healing people.

                      The Bible doesn't say anything abouta lot of things particularly things that we have in today that would ahve been the stuff of withcraft and heresy 200 hundred let alone 2000 years ago.
                      Do I believe God can heal people? Yes I do.
                      Do I believe that healing only occurs through prayer and miracles?
                      Dont be daft. 
                      My Godwould not provide the sort of medical services we have today and then  say 'But you can't use them'

            The bible is the words of humans not god.

            You have every right to talk about God on these forums, but that same right gives other people the right to express their own views about religion.

            You have to understand that to most people religion appears to be a psychotic delusion.

          i would agree that "Religion" is terminal. But i would make this comment , Jesus Christ said that I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through me. He doesn't say I am a way, a truth and a life. The problem with our society today is if it doesn't fit into our bubble of what God should be or it doesn't FEEL GOOD to us. We make excuses for why we don't follow God. The truth is without a relationship with Jesus Christ you will suffer eternally.

        Praise be the Creator- God Allah YHWH, the Lord of Heaven and the Earth:

        [6:1] In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.
        [6:2] All praise belongs to Allah Who created the heavens and the earth and brought into being every kind of darkness and light; yet those who disbelieve set up equals to their Lord. [6:3] He it is Who created you from clay, and then He decreed a term. And there isanother term fixed with Him. Yet you doubt!
        [6:4] And He is Allah, the God, both in the heavens and in the earth. He knows your inside and your outside. And He knows what you earn.
        [6:5] And there comes not to them any Sign of the Signs of their Lord, but they turn away from it.
        [6:6] So they rejected the truth when it came to them; but soon shall come to them the tidings of that at which they mocked.
        [6:7] See they not how many a generation We have destroyed before them? We had established them in the earth as We have established you not, and We sent the clouds over them, pouring down abundant rain; and We caused streams to flow beneath them; then did We destroy them because of their sins and raised up after them another generation. [6:8] And if We had sent down to thee a writing upon parchment and they had felt it with their hands, even then the disbelievers would have surely said, ‘This is nothing but manifest sorcery.’
        [6:9] And they say, ‘Why has not an angel been sent down to him?’ But if We had sent down an angel, the matter would have been settled, and then they would not have been granted a respite.
        [6:10] And if We had appointed as Messenger an angel, We would have made him appear as a man; and thus We would have made confused to them what they are themselves confusing.

          The Omnipotent God absolutely requires humans to praise Him.  All of His other creations glorify Him, why would it be any different for humans?  He does not need our praises.  Even now His throne is surrounded by praises unto Him, that are continually, day and night, without ceasing being given Him. 

          Who are you?  Or I to think that He needs anything from us.  He does require our praise and our worship, but not because He's needy.  Or because He needs be reminded of who He is or to even feel good about Himself.  But because He is God, that's why He's to be praised.  And when our devotion is misplaced we certainly will find some one or some thing else to worship.  And it's a sad day when the Creator is unable to enjoy that which He made.   

          And thank you for being concerned about my freedom.  But, I've never been more free than I am today.  Jesus sets captives free. 

          Focus on your own freedom, because if you ain't got Him, you're not free.  You are bound by the lies presented to you by the father of lies, satan.

            This man sounds like a true Roman. You remember those guys?  They are the ones that wrote your bible and told you that they are Righteous as they destroyed anything that they didn't understand, or did not conform to their idealism.  Their ancestors, (other Romanized Europeans) Murdered their way into the New world and killed paradise. 

            Now let me ask you?  Is that an example of your God?  I am thinking it sounds a great deal more like the work of an Extremely delusional culture of humans who are working for other humans and not for any God.

            Another tip; Romans left no one up for only 3 days...dead or alive.  Someone got paid.  When a man or woman was crucified, they rotted off the cross.

              He was taken from the cross, at sunset, given to Joseph of Arimathea - who DONATED his own tomb, to be buried -ESCORTED by Roman guard to the place -because of the nature of those who killed him, safety of Joseph and to avoid rebellion.

                I have had many, and have seen the work of Romans.  They're the evil, and since they conquered the trade hub of the ancient world, their fetid greed has spread like the plague of pass over.  It is not I good sir, it is you who needs to look beyond the text of those that allegedly killed (more likely he was taken down alive after Mary bribed the Roman Guards) your messiah, and seek the truth within the ground.  Those of evil intent are also lazy, and short sighted (thankfully).  They have left far more evidence than even the most vile of zealots can destroy.  Your book is not truth, it is a form of control.

                  So YOU have have actually seen the Romans and their works? Or the assumed proprietary insinuations of those applications? Please, do tell. And do tell what the valuable, applicable relevance it holds - apart from the human condition - and the pagan books you wrote for them? Heathen, parasite, Baal worshiper, HA! No one cares or regards you anymore. Your temple is destroyed; see your herds and fields dried up, a wasteland of bastard children. The steel you forge is not yours, nor the weapons you think control your destiny. Snakes with no venom!

                  My what? HA! Pagans, you never learn, do you. Always pointing out your own flaws of which god to worship. Having cut yourselves with knives and words - left to lick your self inflicted wounds.

                  Do this: call upon your gods; oh wait, they are on the toilet and can't hear you. And when you realize it, the Truth will become evident. No longer will you need to interpret Truth.
                  Until then, enjoy the dung of slavery you 'created' for yourself...

          Clearly you do not understand the difference here either, Woo woo lala. I sure do use a mac for my personal stuff and various easy peasy apps that it will run, but - sadly - there are limitations (less since they went to Intel) where you have to use a rotten stinking PC. My last Mac was more trouble than it was worth. Damn thing melted twice. sad

              Second generation MacBook Pro - 17 inch. Everything broke - motherboard finally melted and not worth fixing. Used it for working online - now run an older Mac for personal use and a new PC for work.  sad I won't go into boring details, but there are a lot of apps I need to do this that will only work on a PC.

                The MacBook Pro melted?! What on earth did you use it for? I've been a mac user all my life among mac users (except for my husband and his dad)and never heard of such a thing. I agree there are a lot of available apps for PCs but you can't seem to load them all without causing some serious IT work. My Mac can run Windows but I hardly ever ever use it. That is the strangest thing I have ever heard, PC.

        I'm sorry to hear that, but for toy purposes the iPad sure is fun to use, even my six year old can use it. I admittedly have never ever used a PC in my life.

        so you would be right, I wouldn't know the difference. I think PCs are for old men in glasses who like to putter around in a dark room, fidgeting with the thing until the wee hours of the morning and their wives and kids wondering if they're still alive in there.

        There are too many thinks to single out one to be thankful for from God.

        The fact that he decided to create man and not totally destroy  us for our selfishness, greed, hatred for me a good reason to be thankful to God.

        allow people to believe what they believe. allow yourself also to live your own life by your own beliefs not positioning them against others and thinking you got it right.

        all positions serve a function in human thought.

          Yes - I can see how it bothers you religionists to have unbelievers question your authority when you proclaim your praise out loud for all to see. IDK - maybe if you kept it to yourself? Oh - that is right - GOD tells you to spread the ISM no matter the conflict caused. wink

          Go ISM!!! Just remember - You are living the WORD. It just appears as though you are not. LOLOLOL

          Roaring even louder as 21 claims not to have an ISM! I wonder if he gets we are sick of the ISM being stuck to us?

        Why are these threads so conducive to inane back and forth (meaning conversation that gets no one anywhere except to a place of fractious discord)? Is HP a particularly delicious venue for these kinds of postures? What is it about HP that invites these antagonisms?

        There are those who profess their beliefs and then those who retaliate with sarcasm, the result of which is that no good information follows.

        Maybe "Religion & Beliefs" ought to be eliminated as a forum category.

        On the other hand, perhaps time will tell when the skeptics and cynics actually do shed light on the reasons for these arguments.

        On the other, other hand, perhaps all of this is a big great joke in the universe, the universe that we have no comprehension of whatsoever.
