Important Thoughts.

Tom's Journal.

Hi Folks!
Well, this short entry pokes a few big holes in the baloney sold by MOST so-called 'Christian' religions.....called, "CHINO's [Christians in name only].  Those religionists never even read the Bible, let alone studied it, or they are just lying to 'control' their hapless followers/ prisoners.  RED FLAG about poor, false doctrine, churches...  1.  If the church you attend does not even have Bibles near the seats, pews,  or if church followers/ attendees don't bring in their own, personal Bibles -- BEWARE!  It NOT a Bible teaching church!!   2.  If a church does not suggest or encourage you to bring in your own Bible...  BEWARE, it's not a Bible friendly church!   Run.. don't just walk away from that church !   And, Friends, I know you heard all this before, but we have so LITTLE TIME LEFT in this ungodly system of Satan!   Things WILL get a lot worse.  The Rapture WILL come.   Don't be "Left Behind !"
       Where as "True, Bible based Christianity"  is not a 'religion' -- but a LIFE STYLE;  Teaches and motivates through pure LOVE from God and Grace divine!    It's true that we are still sinners as long as we live on this Earth, until we either die, or get Raptured up to heaven, even though we may try hard to remain spotless -- and we well ought to strive to be perfect to prepare for heaven and set a proper example to others, for Jesus' sake.
     No matter how hard we believe or wish, or want to make something so --the words of the KJV Bible are the final say.  The very last WORD, one way or another, and we can't have it both ways!!   If the Word of God says ONE THING, and ONE WAY, we had better listen and heed what is said....  or go against God, Himself, and thereby earn the name of 'devil' [Devil means rebel.].    The bible is never wrong, and "God cannot lie." ~Titus 1:2.  
   My own mother keeps telling me, 'that I should not preach, teach or share the Bible with other people, because I was a wild, crazy sinner man in my younger days.   She is wrong, for just the reasons listed in the good article suggested in this very post !!  I have repented of my evil ways, study the Word daily, and resolve to NOT sin any more, as best as an imperfect man can.....  duh.  And my old time friends sure can notice a big change in me from 30 years ago.   Ha!  My wife, Terri, is getting the "refined version" of wild Tommy Schuckman, and...  good for her!   PTL.  Praise the Lord.

I also need to mention all the good people who just lost their family, homes, etc., in Oklahoma today.... killer tornadoes!  --  so sorry.  May the Lord protect, house and feed them, and give them SOME peace of mind.  Amen. 

I told Terri today, as she bought some more flowers to dress up the outside of the  house, that she [and we] could lose EVERYTHING, in a heart beat!!   So, don't stick all the money in the house, house, house, and get your real priorities straight... PLEASE! 
     And because of the big rise in gas and diesel fuel, we can expect everything else to shoot up in price this Summer and Fall too!   All my closer friends in the "inner circle" already know these hard facts, as we prepare for the 'storm.'

We also had a bear attack a man-- bit him- last week, near where we live in the U.P., but we normally walk like a tiger U.P. here and know what to expect, I pray.... LOL.  Ha!  I can't walk very fast--bad knees and legs --Disabled, but I take my trusty hound dog, "Deuce" - the Rottweiler, but he is getting old too.  Terri wanted to buy another Rotty- female, play mate for Deuce, and I wonder if I should have jumped at the idea.... hummmm.    We have so many animals now in the house... and they need to eat too.

Warm Regards, and count your many blessings tonight,
Tommy Schuckman.       --Below, 1st Picture:  Terri and Tom.  IM-MI.  Happily married !

Will Having Sex Keep Me From The Rapture? Follow Up

Q. Re: Will Having Sex Keep Me From The Rapture? My Bible says, ” fornicators will not inherit The Kingdom of God” 1 Cor. 6:9. Another litany of sins followed by “those who practice such things shall not inherit The Kingdom of God” is found in Gal.5:19-21 The Bible is very specific on our behavior (actions) that keeps us from The Kingdom of God. Paul calls them ‘the deeds of the flesh’. In 1 Cor. 6:11 Paul goes on to say, “such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our GOD.” How could a person who practices such as these be in The Kingdom of God?

A. The Pharisees thought because they didn’t commit any sinful acts they were more deserving of Heaven those who did. Jesus went to great lengths to explain that even their righteousness would not qualify them for the Kingdom (Matt. 5:20). He said a careless thought (Matt. 5:22, 28) or word (Matt. 12:36-37) would convict them as surely as a careless deed. And James 2:10 says that even one violation of one commandment makes us guilty of all.
A look at the clearest verses in the New Testament show us that the single requirement for salvation is the belief that Jesus died for our sins and rose again (John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10, 1 Cor. 15:1-4, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:4-7). It further states that from the moment we believe, God places His seal of ownership on us and puts His Spirit in our hearts as a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance. From that time on we are His and no power in Heaven or on Earth can change that (Ephes 1:13-14, 2 Cor. 1:21-22, Romans 8:38-39)
Romans 3:21-24 says our righteousness is from God and is by faith. 2 Cor. 5:17 says if we’re in Christ we’re a new creation, and 2 Cor. 5:21 says the Lord’s death has made us as righteous as God is. Hebrews 10:12-14 says His one sacrifice has made us perfect forever. None of this comes to us because of what we do but because of what we believe. In short, there is no behavior that can keep a born again believer from the Kingdom of God.
When we read the “litany of sins” in 1 Cor. 6:9-10 and Gal. 5:19-21 and apply God’s standard which makes even a careless thought, word, or deed grounds for conviction, we can see that no one could escape condemnation. But 1 Cor. 6:11 differentiates between the saved and the unsaved. We have been washed (made clean) sanctified (set apart) and justified (rendered innocent). These are one time acts that result in a permanent change in our status, and once that happens God no longer counts our sins against us (Romans 7:18-20). Otherwise all the statements above would be untrue, because we all continue to sin.
Please remember that I advised the questioner to stop having premarital sex because her behavior was grieving the Holy Spirit. But according to the clear word of Scripture, she is not in danger of losing her salvation.
