Christians: Tell Me About Faith In God And How You Are Incorruptible To The Things Going On In This World?
In the past couple of years I've been noticing things going on that made me think " I really need God" not because of the selfish reason of not going to hell to save myself but every time I've did something as "Sin" in the eyes of God, It was always this voice in my head telling me that it was wrong and It hurt me in my heart. And It has been a habitual thing over and over again. But as of lately I have been living right and I'm currently studying the Bible daily... but I'm not not there yet. So to the real Christians who do not look down their nose at people and are In "The Book Of Life" I just want to let you know that my life's goal now is to be like you and with you when that time comes... so until then pray for me and tell me about your faith in God...

Hello Mark. Yes, my prayer is for you that you may really know Him.
Jesus is my Lord and my Savior because one day, I realized that I needed Him. My life was going along pretty good but, I knew that something was missing. I sat down and told God that I believed in Him but, that I didn't love Him. He caused something to happen in my life and brought people into my life that love Jesus. It was not a coincidence. It was me asking Him to help me love him. He did. I would like to give you this letter.

Actually we are very capable of being corrupted. That is why the Bible says that following the Lord is very hard, because we are trying not to give into the things that most people just give in to. Most unbelievers can walk through life untouched because they have already given in and have no temptation. Also...being a Christian opens your eyes up to a lot more than what unbelievers see. Its like watching a movie where you know things that the people who are in the movie don't know. We see where the world is headed and we see how so many people live their lives, and we want to tell them "hey look, it doesn't have to be this way."
Also...maybe by incorruptible you mean...we are able to deal with things easier(hardships in the world). Having God on my side makes me feel like I can get through anything...and it's true! I will pray for you...just know that all believers struggle...which means we are on the right path!!!

yes, my friend, God bless you, i will pray for you. i came to Jesus at age 14 after reading the Bible. i had always gone to church, but never knew Him. i did not know anything about salvation. the type of worship i was in was rote phrases over and over, ritualistic worship. i never met the Holy Spirit in that church i grew up in. never met Him until i read the Bible.
fastforward to when i was 29 and married; the Lord led my husband and i to a beautiful place of love called the Church of the Nazarene. i will be 50 years old this month and i still go there.
renew your mind daily with the Scriptures and with prayer, follow the lead of the Holy Spirit. find a good Bible-based church with other believers so you will have brothers and sisters in Christ. these are all ways of helping us keep on track, keeping oneself free from the ways of the world.
i'm very happy for you and your newfound faith. again, may God bless you abundantly in this life and thereafter.

I greet you with Love Eternal Mark. I pray you peace, love and joy as you journey with God.
Faith is a funny expression and is one that is oft misused, misapplied and misunderstood. Faith is "required" when one cannot overcome the doubting within their minds. Faith is but a step, a rung, in the path to God. Many religions preach Faith as the destination when in fact it is but only a part of it and not at all the destination.
It has been long taught by the great spiritual masters of our time that an open and loving heart, with no judgments within, need not require Faith as it has become One with the Father. Thus does it become self evident that Love, eternal and divine, becomes the key.
We are created in the likeness of God. This does not mean our physical appearance. It means Life itself, of which we are a small portion of. At our greatest source, the essence of Life itself, there is nothing that can be corrupted thus we are free. Only our own fears and judgments bind us, nothing else.
I have come to see that God, or which ever name one prefers, is Light, Life and Love. Become One with this and simply BE Light, Life and Love.
Thank you for allowing me to share.

Well first off, we're not incorruptable in this flesh..............someday we will shed this earthly tent and put on a new and incorruptable body. But until then, we are called to live as Christ.
I will certainly pray for you.
We are all sinners in need of salvation. Once a person realizes that truth, then they can be truly saved. My advice to you:
Pray daily (talk to Him)
Stay in the word
Put on the full armor of God daily (Ephesians 6)

I keep my eyes upon the Lord with daily prayer and Bible reading so I can cope with the temptations of the secular world who doesn't understand because they have not discovered the wonders of Christ. We all need God.

Faith is a word of meanings and needs rightly dividing its presents. Faith is one word that has become most in trouble as to know Truth of the truth.
Faith and faith are important to know just as scribes in the Old testament put capitals in unusual place , they were put for reason; we in the west take no note of this as thus mixing language up to lose in its perfection, thought, and by this as lost, Faith becomes lessen in our faith on less sent.
As Faith is heaven….. as what one think heaven to be , That’s why so many Faith’s in the World…. for heaven wants charge and as spoken the bible ‘the battle is in heaven’.And there can only be one heaven in charge, One.
But faith is not the same as the world, Faiths; for faith is the works of Faith that one believes, Faith but not the Faith is the out come, but faith be the works, teaching, prophesy, commandment, the bible are the Faith but faith is in/by/ through Jesus Christ the person as one go through Him we are then one in faith an jesus is called the Prophecy . As we come to understand/believe that faith is workings of each, Father and Son as one, we will understand two types of faith belonging that made the whole, the Holy Spirit. And when in loves in faith we will be of the Holy Spirit as ours when indeed we put on Lord; that is heaven, in the Father. in your walk as ours.
We who believe in the image of God is Christ, will also believe by faith, in makes us true to our Faith which is true heaven.

I will pray for you if you believe thats what you need. my advice to you would become at peace with yourself, and be happy , as this is what god really wants (in my belief) treat others as you wish to be treated , a great way to get a feeling of christ is go to a charismatic worship session, theyre amazing
also be open to to fact that you could of course be completely wrong and be open to conversations with people of different belief about their beliefsSource(s): I am hugely christian.

don't be like me
be like Jesus
the only way to be the kind of child our Father can be proud of is to be in constant contact with Him-
make the fear of the Lord and the life and love of Jesus our highest priority.
when we acknowledge Jesus' sacrifice and God's unconditional love for us- we can then let that grace and love flow from them- thru us- to others.
reading the bible and prayer are both basic and necessary-
allow the Holy Spirit access to your life- trust and obey for there's no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey:)
it's all easier said than done but that's the journey:) hang in there:)
I couldn't imagine trying to live this life without Jesus!
