Re: Think quick! Erm... I mean fast!

I've only tried it a few times, myself, but it's never really done anything for me. I'm not sure why. All I do is feel weak and/or sleepy. The key to fasting is to remain focused on the Lord. Prayer, scripture study, meditation... These are the things that are enhanced when in a state of fasting. I...

Re: A Plague of Shadows

A new player joined us tonight, but the party was still 5 members strong, as one player was working and couldn't be here. The new player had a half-orc Paladin. The party left Lentz' Landing for the misty crag, about two day's journey through the mountains. Along the way, they met a dryad who offere...

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Great point. Add to that in the Garden of Gethsemane, he comes right out and asks if there's another way... but submitted to Heavenly Father's will. Who knows what went through His mind to ask that?

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Indeed. Well said.
Thanks :)

In any case, I think the TL;DR version of the OP might say something like "Because we don't have an objective definition of what a 'good person' even is. That's what Jesus provides."

Re: Persecution of Christianity: We Were Warned

Good ones!

Verses like these give me comfort. It's easy to be discouraged when we see the way the world is changing, but The Lord told us it would be so, yet He also gave us hope and assures us that things will be great in the end.

Persecution of Christianity: We Were Warned

Well, with DC set to release a comic book mocking Jesus Christ, and with the numerous and obvious biases against Christianity in virtually every form of media, it can get pretty exhausting. But take heart, brothers and sisters. This is how we know we're on the right path. The world wants to hate us?...

Re: Red Dead Redemption 2

I just submitted one, so you should see it soon.

I've been playing Arthur as noble as I can, but it feels disconnected when the story forces evil acts.

We Need More Threads in this Subforum

C'mon guys! I only have to count down like 3 threads before there are ones that haven't been active in over a year.

It's a gaming site but the word "Christian" appears before "gamer." Surely there are scriptural things we can discuss!

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Concrete example, if I sit around daydreaming about women other than my wife, but never act on any of it in any way, I still have a major problem going on. It is not enough to say "Well it's just fantasy, I don't actually have affairs." And in that sense, our thoughts are absolutely something we'll...

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

because we're judged by what we say and do, not by what we think. I would say we are judged by what we say, do, AND think. I believe Scripture backs this up quite concretely. "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart." - Proverbs 21 “I the Lord search the heart and...

Re: Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

Personally - heretically hence why I do not teach it to others - I think we as humans get really caught up on the word Jesus in this instance. I think since we are all bad, we all need what Jesus has done: gone in our place in an act of mercy and grace. However I do not expect Heaven to be password...

Re: DC Comics will be making fun of Jesus in a new comic series

I bet they're too chicken to draw Mohammed
Too chicken to do Mohammed, and not respectful enough to NOT do either him OR Jesus. These people are despicable.

Re: DC Comics will be making fun of Jesus in a new comic series

Just remind them that Islam regards Jesus as a prophet and it would offend Muslims. Then they'll back off.

Why Can't a Good Person Who Doesn't Accept Jesus Go To Heaven?

We Christians of all denominations hear that question a LOT when confronted with doctrines that require a certain standard within Christianity. "Well, my friend is a good person but isn't a Christian. Why shouldn't they get to go to Heaven?" The answer is simple. Because without the Gospel there is ...
