{Welcome}

I am writing this blog in order to promote bible study and to share the word of God. This site is non-denominational but simply based on the Word of God alone. If you share your question in a comment I may feature it in a post to come. I also have many questions which I look forward to asking and seeing what you all have to say. I just ask that you please be respectful here and pray for the most helpful way to correct others. I hope to have everything up and running within the next few days Lord willing.

Love & Prayers,

-Marie-

Why do people say repent of your sins?

We’ve all heard it many many times, the phrase repent of your sins. But have you ever wondered where this is located in the Bible? Well if turns out that the exact phrase its self is not in the Bible at all!

John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

 

Bible Gateway Quick Search- repent of sins

Here are the synonyms of the word repentance listed by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

contriteness, contrition, penitence, regret, remorse, remorsefulness, guilt, rue, self-reproach, shame.

Why do you think this is used so often today if it isn’t actually written in the Bible?

What does repentance mean to you?

How can we correct people of biblical ignorance without being rude?

Did Jesus come to bring peace?

We see and hear it all the time, Jesus is peace, Jesus is love… but while reading through Matthew the other day I came to a couple of verses that had me stumped. This is something you probably won’t hear in church, and when I read this I was like Wow, these are words from Jesus himself in my bible printed in red…

 

Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.

 -Matthew 10:34-39 KJV
