"No Sin" attainable?

This past Sunday, I attended my ACFYA (African Christian Fellowship Young Adult) meeting and the topic of discussion was "I smoke, I drank, Im supposed to stop but I cant!!!"....

Some of the questions discussed were

1. If we all continually sin, then are we really saved?...
a. How do you know if you're 'really' saved?

2. If we all continually sin, what's the point of trying 2 stop sinning? ...might as well let me live and do my thing...

3. Can I openly sin, but still be saved?
...cuz i don't plan on stopping some things I got going on right now....

4. And the question which led to the biggest debate, Is there a point that we can reach where we will NEVER sin?

So now it's time to share your thoughts, Is "no sin on Earth" attainable?

Support your answer with scripture!

God bless!

Love!

"He that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love".
[1 John 4:8, KJV]

The only word in The Bible used to describe the nature of God is love. And being that we are created in His image (Gen 1:26), it's only befitting that we define God's character. Often quoted, yet mis-used without revelation, 1 Corinthians 13:4-10 still teaches us the perfect way to love....

Take from The Message translation, love....Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

In Remembrance.....


9 years ago today, America's core was shaken by violence, strife and hatred resulting in what is commonly referred to as today's "9/11". More than 3,000 victims were laid to rest as families mourned over loved ones, while America watched in silence as it's nation began to fall... Threats turned into action, action into violence, violence into hatred, and hatred into death. One vividly saw how the devil's influence could overtake a body of people and cause an entire nation to be still.

But ten years later, America is still here, still standing, still strong. Yet even with a sense of hope, there's still a sense of longing. A longing for answers as victim mourners will never hear satisfactory answers to the question "why?", a longing for parents who will still never understand why their children lives were fatally cut short, and a longing for children who unfortunately will continue to grow up fatherless. As a result, athiests will condemn religion, Islam will consistently remain in constant attack, and questions of "where was God?" will emerge. Yet for the believing one, there is an assurity in victory and one rejoices in his salvation!

So who wins.....?! Short of being rhetorical, shrugs shoulders! Does it even really matter..... Another rhetorical question!

Regardless of 10 yrs. ago, there's still a 'today'. And for today, thank God that you're still here cause as we all know, there's a reason and a purpose for everything.

And despite the fact that such brutal attacks had to be taken in order to cause extreme measures to awaken the eyes of God's people, let today be a day of reflection....For your life and the lives that were slain. If 10 yrs. ago, your day had come, where would your eternity be spent?

Never forget "9/11"

Our response is not to create a mere counter culture. It is to create a greater culture challenging this generation to pursue God and raise the standard in their daily lives.

"There's no crying in baseball"

So one of my all-time favorite movies, is on right now! A League of their own!!!!!...If you've never seen it, you're definitely missing out. I absolutely love this movie, like seriously LOVE IT!

The 1992 movie discusses the story of 2 sisters who join the first all-female professional baseball league while struggling through maintaining their sisterly bond. Tensions grow throughout the film as built up animosity from Kit (the younger of the two sisters) begins to envy her older sister Dottie, commonly referred to as the best player of the league.



Despite their differences, the two put aside their feelings and learn that it truly isn't all about baseball, but rather the impact of women in a sport mostly dominated by male....

Whatever your feelings about baseball played by an all-male/female dominated team, A League of Their Own will put a dent in your heart leaving you embracing the warmth of female baseball in 1992.

Enjoy!

Fabulous Walmart Finds!

For the past few months, I've been on the hunt to find my staple and only lipstick, Maybelline's G132, Nude Blush. I wear it everyday, and it's the only lipstick I will wear as my make-up collection is no where near the greats since I'm still getting into it, but unfortunately, I can no longer find it in Osco or even Walmart. They always seem to be out now....

So today, while in Walmart, I went to my counterpart, Revlon, and found some nice finds in 002 Pink Pout & 660 Berry Haute!



Looks like they'll be perfect for fall, and I love plum colors, so hopefully all goes well...



But just looking at them, aren't they beautiful? At least I hope so.....



O, and I also picked up some more lip gloss, by my fav brand, RIMMEL! I usually go with 115 SNOG, but decided since I'm being different, let's switch it up. So I decided to go with 168 RHYTHM! :)

Anywho, can't wait to try them, let's see if they become staples....
And if you find Maybelline G132 in a store near you, shoot me and email or do giveaway :)


♥XOXO♥

Are you a believer or a Christian?

No the question is not rhetorical!

Nowadays, you have people professing that they believe in Christ, yet their lifestyle is the furthest from being "Christ-like", and unlike other religions, Christianity is centered on the lifestyle of Jesus Christ, believing in He who was sent (John 6:29), not a religion based on man's teaching.

So begs the question, what is the difference between being a believer and a Christian? Or is there a difference?

Confession doesn't necessarily qualify you as a Christian...or does it?!

Share your thoughts.......

Homosexuality is a Gift?!!?!?!

Deliverance is so necessary!
2 Corinthians 4:4




Seriously!?!?!! Let's not get it twisted folks, Judgement day is coming and they will have to answer to God.
