Hello everyone, I don't post here much but was wondering if I could ask for prayers? I'm having some medical worries lately and would appreciate some thoughts to our Lord

Definitely, I'll make sure I keep you in my prayers over the festive season!

Praying, here's a few promises from God's word

"Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken." (Psalm 55:22)

" Answer me, O LORD, for Your loving kindness is good; According to the greatness of Your compassion, turn to me" (Psalm 69:16)

"I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living". (Psalm 27 v 13)

Matthew 6:27 "Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?"

Hey everyone.

The other day, I got a message on TSR from someone who wasn't a Christian but was following a different religion. It was just a short message, just encouraging me and saying they liked the way I handled replying to people (many of whom were hostile) on the 'God and Religion' thread.

Now I've had a few messages like that in the past, and they are so encouraging, and I just wanted to further that encouragement to you all.

I have made so many mistakes in the past, being excessively blunt and confrontational when arguing online (particularly because irl I tend to be eager for correction and critical of myself). But we should be gentle as the bible says numerous times. Keep doing what you're doing guys. Just as there are many who don't agree, there are also those who don't type anything, but just read the entire conversation, like the one who messaged me. There are people who are reading what you say, are seeing the love of God there, and who knows, may come to know God for themselves.

Aw that's sweet x Nice to see there's people still on here debating in a pleasant way now that a lot of the older ones have disappeared - I must try and argue with you sometime, evidently! I had a quick browse but the religion section seemed quite samey. May kick the Ask a Christian thread in the butt a bit.

Yes, or you could always find Christians to talk with in person.

Romans 5:8 - but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

1 John 4:9-11 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Hey sisters and brothers
I wanted to share this book with you that I am about to buy and read. It's called 'Searching for Jesus' by Robert Hutchinson. The book is about new research concerning Jesus historically; some may argue that the book is biased because of Robert's religious beliefs as he is a Christian. Though Robert is an award-winning writer and author who studied philosophy as an undergraduate, moved to Israel to learn Hebrew, and earned a graduate degree in New Testament.

Some reviews:
"This entertaining book, setting its scenes with plenty of local color, demonstrates just how far the modern skepticism about Jesus has overreached itself. Questions remain, but Robert Hutchinson reminds us that we do not need to be browbeaten by those who say that only negative answers are available."
- N. T. Wright, Ph.D., University of St. Andrews

"Robert Hutchinson's new book -- Searching for Jesus: New Discoveries in the Quest for Jesus of Nazareth --is a significant and very welcomed contribution to the discussion about the 'Historical Jesus.' In his book, Hutchinson reviews recent archaeological finds and new directions in New Testament scholarship that challenge some of the older theories. He does it with great clarity and in a lively and intriguing way."
- Israel Knohl, Ph.D., The Hebrew University, Jerusalem.

So I'm quite intrigued to read it. Has anyone heard of the book yet or read it themselves yet? It seems cool so definitely priority on my reading list.
