You have the Word so close to your heart.
There's no need to overwork yourself here in this forum.
If you have any friends to share with in fellowship. Enjoy their company where likemindedness is closer to your own.
Even if is in a congregation or bible study. Not everyone will have the Word flow exactly like yourself.
Even so remain in the vine.
And give with fruition to those who are in need.

Blessings Always.
Thanks.

I appreciate that.

How can anyone kill your ways except you? The answer is that they can’t. You, and you alone, are responsible for what way you choose. No one on earth needs to follow the way you choose in order for you to walk in it. But let me ask: what do you think will happen to you if you allow your ways to die?

GOLDEN RULE
• Strive to be the kind of person you would prefer to spend eternity with.
• Acting hellacious, while hoping for heaven won’t work.
• Goodness is sought by and embraced by all who share such attributes. Evil shuns goodness, just as misery loves company.

It is impossible to please God without faith.

Also

https://www.gotquestions.org/mustard-seed-faith.html

By using the uncommonly small mustard seed as an example, Jesus is speaking figuratively about the incalculable power of God when unleashed in the lives of those with true faith.

Nice sentence.
I, myself, would only change the word 'true'...only cuz I think faith is faith. False faith? Can't be.
Now, if those were my words, I might say, 'profound faith, unshakeable faith', maybe.
Thank you, you seem to have read though the posts here before posting yourself, I appreciate that.

And I have exp'd what you said, Finn...my gosh, how my life changed when I had complete and total faith
in God...I could make a LIST!
All seeming like impossible miracles, my friends knowing me for decades-
dropping their mouths just watching the change.
Thank you, Lord, Creator of all things visible and invisible.

NO I dont' think that . not all faith is the same kind of faith.. there is different kinds of faith..
faith is about where you get the power and who you get it from and who it is about and why it is you got it.. and what it is you are glorified and ... and ! and ! a... Oprah and Ellen got all kinds of faith in themselves and in their own higher powers. and Now they can preach faith like they understand it.. and that has little to nothing to do with Jesus our Lord and his power over sin and death and disease. they may like a verse in the bible that inspires them.. but the power of their faith is NOT fueled by Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

that isn't faith in God. you can put your "faith" in anything! and often including witchcraft like How you say your prayers can become incantations.. and someone can put faith in their own incantations... that isn't a faith that jumps out of the plane in his name because you are following the Father's footsteps/fingerprints and you are doing what the Father is doing.. Jesus the man.. is our example of perfect faith. he said over and over he only did and said what he saw the Father doing !
actually I haven't heard God voice in ages maybe 2 or 3 years.. .. I see him doing things around me..I then do what I see him doing. to see, then do what you see.

We are talking in this Christian section about faith in God, period.

If you personally know Opra and Ellen's heart and want to
start a thread on them...great...all yours.

She is sharing something more valuable than monetary wealth.
If ever you have read psalms 49
Do you think he wrote tthat before after building a palace.

Who is 'she'?

Be not afraid when a man becomes rich,
when the glory of his house increases.
17 For when he dies he will carry nothing away;
his glory will not go down after him.
18 For though, while he lives, he counts himself blessed
—and though you get praise when you do well for yourself—
19 his soul will go to the generation of his fathers,
who will never again see light.
20 Man in his pomp yet without understanding is like the beasts that perish
. -Ps 49 excerpt

I do not see that my very rich friends, mutli-millionaires, 5 of them, are with pomp or
with no understanding like beasts, btw....I do not see that projected from the 2
celebrities mentioned either....
A separate thread can be started on the rich, however, please.
