why do we need to repent of our sins

Could you please explain how if we are saved by grace that we need to repent. Isn't repentance a work? Repent is the first word of the gospel, but I am struggling with how the two compliment or coincide with each other. Thanks. Scripture is clear that we are saved by faith and faith alone. A careful examination of New Testament passages reveals that at least and nothing more. If repentance and baptism are so essential for one to have eternal life, why are they not included more often? Repentance is mentioned only once in Acts 2:38 and baptism is mentioned four times. A careful study of the passages reveal that when repentance and baptism do appear they are mentioned as things that accompany true salvation. For example in 2 Corinthians 7:10, repentance leads one to salvation, but it is

why do we need to give thanks to god

When the Pilgrims celebrated their first Thanksgiving in 1621, half their original group had died. Our forebears were able to focus on GodБs goodness and mercy even in the midst of trials. Perhaps they took a lesson from Paul and Silas who, while in chains in the prison at Philippi, Бprayed, and sang praises unto GodБ (Acts 16:25). Or perhaps they were simply following the instruction of Philippians 2:5, which says, БYour attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. Б It was Christ Who, knowing exactly what lay ahead, gave thanks on the very night in which He was betrayed. As Christians, weБre called beyond simple thanks for the good things God has sent our way. WeБre also to give thanks for what He has done for us. and for who He is. : б б б 1. His Бunfailing loveБ (Psalm 107,

why do the sunni and shia fight

The divide between Sunnis and Shia is the largest and oldest in the history of Islam. Members of the two sects have co-existed for centuries and share many fundamental beliefs and practices. But they differ in doctrine, ritual, law, theology and religious organisation. Their leaders also often seem to be in competition. From Lebanon and Syria to Iraq and Pakistan, many recent conflicts have emphasised the sectarian divide, tearing communities apart. Who are the Sunnis? The great majority of the world's more than 1. 5 billion Muslims are Sunnis - estimates suggest the figure is somewhere between 85% and 90%. In the Middle East, Sunnis make up 90% or more of the populations of Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Sunnis regard themselves as the orthodox branch of Islam. The name "Sunni" is

why do the leaves on my peace lily turn black

Cold is a possibility, but I don't think that's what's caused this damage; given where you are, unless you've had freak weather conditions in your particular location, it seems the temperatures recently have not fallen below 20 deg C during the day. What has caused it is direct sunlight. These plants do not like direct sunlight even indoors - outside it would be even more damaging, particularly as the plant has probably never experienced any direct sunlight in the whole of its life. ...

why were plays in elizabethan england performed during daylight hours

Not all of them were. Plays performed indoors at court, in private halls or at indoor theatres like the Blackfriars were lit by candlelight and could therefore be performed at night. Plays performed in the outdoor theatres used sunlight to illuminate the stage and so had to be performed during daylight. br / br / Apex) no stage light was avilable br / br / Because the only artificial lighting available after dark in those days were either fire-torches or oil lamps, both of which were fire hazards. To have naked flames ablaze in a packed Elizabethan theatre (which were usually thatch-roofed and with timber framing) was considered far too dangerous; if a torch or lamp went over and started a fire, it would have engulfed the entire building very quickly and risked the audience being

why does my dog keep sticking her tongue out

DogsБ tongues are pretty incredible, once you think about it. They are used to eat and, to help via panting, and, of course, to give you. Some dogs, maybe even your own, have a bizarre but adorable trait of sticking their tongues out all of the time. Sometimes itБs just the tip, other times their entire tongue is hanging out of the side of their mouth. While this can be an endearing trait, it can also be a signal of underlying health issues. Hanging Tongue Syndrome Hanging Tongue Syndrome is exactly what it sounds like: the dogБs tongue hangs out of the mouth and is not a sign of anything else troublesome. It is a condition that smaller and brachycephalic (Бsmooshed-face,Б like Pugs) breeds are prone to. Both types of dogs are affected because of genetics. Their tongues may quite

 why do my muscles tighten up when i sleep

why do my muscles tighten up when i sleep

grrr! Just lost a long message to you! I have to stop sitting, so will post it tomorrow. With Niacin, is it prescription? If so and the aspirin alone doesn't work completely for the flushing/burning, try taking allergy medicine prior to taking it too. I would've had to stop once my dose reached the max if I hadn't learned that, and already take allergy meds so I just rearranged the timing. I take half a prevastatin/day. I was able to decrease my old one, but this was all within the time my back worsened and I had surgery, so it's tough to tell. The thing that worsened the most is my nerve pain, as the sciatic nerve was irritated from surgery and triggers the other nerves. Thanks for the getting better wishes. It's the classic "couldn't get to the store to get my bcps", so I took pieces of
