Starting this Sunday we will be moved to Kitely :) Our region name is "Faith Chapel Ministries". We will still use the "Faith Chapel in Opensim" facebook page. This page will no longer be maintained. Our new events and notices page here is https://opensimworld.com/hop/88359 - "Faith Chapel Ministries". Please join us for this exciting new change!
God's grace and God's mercy are often confused. Although they are similar expressions of his favor and love, they possess a clear distinction. When we experience God's grace, we receive favor that we do not deserve. When we experience God's mercy, we are spared punishment that we do deserve. What does this have to do with grits? You'll have to come to find out :)
This might seem a bit simplistic or naïve or maybe even impossible, but these words are also a message from Jesus. We do worry because some things in this life make us fearful and often seem to challenge our very existence. How does your witness affect those you meet day to day? Are you cynical, or angry? Christians of all people have every reason to be optimistic, even cheerful :P
Look at how we view sin has changed in the last 100 years. Slowly, Satan has infiltrated our value systems, and replaced Gods with his. Let's peel away that evil facade and find again that path to our Celestial City.
How do we love our enemies, and why should we love our enemies? Who are our enemies? Today let's dive into the complexities of this commandment, and get a glimpse of the beauty inherent in our daily walk as a follower of Jesus.
We all struggle with temptations, doubt, sicknesses, there's troubles with employment, or maybe relationships, bad decisions - all these things rob you of your joy in life, your security - I have good (or God :P) news! It doesn't have to be like that! This morning we're gonna have a big Holy Spirit hug, some soul CPR :) Don't miss this!
This morning I will present some dominant verses that are used to support the idea that we could lose our salvation,, and then I will show how we interpret them to support Eternal Security. Please come if you've ever doubted your standing with God, or if you're just curious about salvation :) It will be a fascinating look at one of our favorite doctrines.
The Christian Life should be full of joy, peace, and excitement. This will be an empowering, positive message that everyone should enjoy, and it will start the New Year on a positive note :) Everyone is invited - bring a friend or two!
Life is hard. How do you deal with the uncertainty and harshness of life? Do you struggle with adversity, or do you see it as a challenge, a lesson, or maybe a way of refinement? Tough times to a Christian shouldn't be feared and avoided. Tonight we will look at the proper perspective in dealing with trouble.
Let's talk honestly about our relationship with our Redeemer. Are we "hiding" some things, or maybe just sinning and counting on "OSAS" to get into Heaven despite our rebellion? Any relationship needs effort and honesty, and our relationship with Jesus is no exception.
How did Hell become something in a bad anime, or an expletive? Why does no one fear Hell any more? Let's look at how the concept of Hell has become minimized through popular culture, and see how it has distorted the worlds view of Christianity.
