ISLAM IS ROOTED IN BITTERNESS

Islam is not a religion of peace as some make you believe. The violence and turmoil we see in the Middle East and around the world, the persecution and execution of Christians and the hatred for the Jews and Israel has its origin going back to the ancient time when God told Abraham, (Abram as his name was at the time) the following:
“Leave your native country, your relatives, and your father’s family, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-3 NLT
God gave Abram the promise of a son, when He told him:
“You will have a son of your own who will be your heir.” Then [...]

YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN

When you continue to follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Anyone living this sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God! (See Galatians 5:19-21)

Even if you claim to be a believer yet you indulge in sexual sin, or you are greedy, or you worship idols, or you are abusive, or you are a drunkard, or you cheat people, or you commit adultery, or you are a male prostitute, or you practice homosexuality, or you are a thief, you will not inherit the Kingdom of God! (See 1. Corinthians 5:11, 1. Corinthians 6:9-10)

When you keep on sinning, it shows that you belong to the devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. Those who have been born into God’s family do not make a practice of sinning, because [...]

WHY GOD CHOSE MARY AND JOSEPH

God did not choose a loudmouthed, self-centered, complaining, manipulative and controlling woman to bear His Son Jesus Christ, but instead He favored Mary, a humble, submissive woman who was willing to do whatever God asked of her.

She had to travel while pregnant, and when there was no hotel available she was willing to allow her baby Jesus to be born in a barn without complaining and blaming her husband for not taking better care of her. (See Luke 2:1-7)

When an angel of the Lord appeared to her husband Joseph, a good man, (See Matthew 1:19) in a dream and told him to get up and flee to Egypt and stay there till King Herod who was searching to kill baby Jesus died, Mary obediently and humbly followed her husbands’ leading, and left her country and family. (See Matthew 2:13-23)

With Joseph and Mary, God set the example of what a godly marriage is supposed to look like!

By Edwin Christiaan

The Bible says that if you claim you have no sin, you are only fooling yourself and are not living in the truth. But if you confess your sins to God, He is faithful and just to forgive your sins and cleanse you from all wickedness! (See 1. John 1:8-9)

In other words, you need to be willing to sincerely admit your sins and mistakes in order to receive forgiveness and be healed, restored, and changed!

Jesus said; “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.” Luke 5:31-32 NLT

This means, that Jesus did not come for those, even if they call themselves Christians, who think they never sin or do anything wrong and instead blame everyone else for their own sinful actions! It is impossible to help such people!

Because, “If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God [...]
