|How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by Sunnyvision(m): 9:57pm On Nov 14|
A fervent Christain is someone who is saved by the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus christ and work by faith in the spirit of God. In order to be the Christain God want us to become we have to live in obedience to the word of God, also you have to separate yourself from the world so as not to be influence by it. 1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 2:17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
I will outline some points to observe to become a fervent Christain.
Prayer: a christain that does not pray is walking a wrong part for the devil to operate in is life, there is no limit for someone to pray we need to pray always as long as we have the free time, even if you do not have one, create a time to pray.
Prayer and fasting is essential for a believer to push or elevate in the spirit, we need it in order to connect to God, also prayer and fasting is needed to wrestle and over demons, addictions, bondage from satan e.t.c. mark 9: 28,29; Ephesians 6:10-18; 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5.
Fellowship: fellowship with other believers is very important don't say I can serve God on my own if you think or follow that way you will lack spiritual improvement in working with God. Get a Bible believing chruch that preach the sound doctrine of salvation, holiness, sanctification e.t.c.
Also commune with like minded believer of faith to the word of God. In Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 2:43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 2:44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common; 2:45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. 2 corinthain 6: 14; 1 john 1: 1-7.
Reading the Bible: for you to growth spiritually you need to read, meditate and practice the word of God. the word of God is for our example, correction, instruction and the purpose of God for our life. The more you read and obey the word of God the more you growth spiritually in wisdom and understanding.
2 Timothy 2:15, Psalm 1 : 1-3; psalm 119:130; Joshua 1:8.
Will of God: this is when we are obedience to God's word and instructions, it is also the standard of holiness in a believers life. Paul the apostle walk with God and was obedience to God despite trials, persecution, tribulation and so on, he stood for the truth and preach the word of God. Acts 26: 13-20; 1 Corinthians 1: 1-27; Romans 8: 1-14.
Praise and Worship: it is very important we add praise and worship in our every day life to God Almighty it make God move in a mighty way, also when we praise God we are equally thanking Him for is goodness, blessing, wonders and more.
In time of trials, persecution, distress and problem, praise and worship to God relieve us from situation we find ourself.
Acts 16: 22-26; 1 Peter 1: 6-8; judges 5: 1-3; Exodus 15: 1-12.
This is an inclusion: anger, bitterness, hatred, murmur,
Derogative words to the church of God, people or your neighbors; sinful addiction, sinful mindset and those things that you think don't matter but are sinful can interrupt your access or connection with God. stay blessed and we are able to overcome don't be discouraged, distracted we will make it to heaven.
This is a short message and i believe it as help answer the question of many who seek answers.One way to be what God desire us to become is when we surrender to the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by repenting from our sin. 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Therefore, why does everyone want to go to heaven? What will happen to the earth? Wasn't it the original dwelling place for humans?

So you're invariably saying not going to church translate to unbelief?
Churches these days are after your money, imagine you pay tithe, offerings and what have you, Church would still want you pay monthly levy we now attending a secret cult where we pay dues ?

To become a fervent Christian believer, all you need is to suspend the use of your brain. Because the moment you start using your brain there is no way you will believe any of the mythological nonsense written in the bible.
How can a functional brain reconcile with the fact that a supposedly all-knowing god put a tree with a fruit that wasn't supposed to be eaten in the same garden as the creatures who were not supposed to eat it and then turns around to blame them for eating it even though he is all-knowing?
How can a functional brain reconcile with the fact that the same god didn't just forgive the creatures after they ate the forbidden fruit since he is all powerful but instead devices an elaborate plan to impregnate a woman with himself thereby cuckolding another man and then sacrificing that himself to himself in order to forgive his creatures who he has been creating since the first guys ate the fruit knowing fully well they will all fall into sin?
How can a functional brain come to grips with the fact that the supposedly all knowing and all powerful god didn't decide to wire the truth into our brains so we know the truth about him like we know to drink water and eat food but instead he decided to leave humans at the mercy of religious influences of our parents and environment such that a person is likely to believe in the same gods believed by people around him and defend that god vehemently? He couldn't even appear to everyone everywhere and teach them the truth about him at once instead he chose some illiterate goat herders in a Middle Eastern desert to teach his ways and then waited for thousands of years for some conquering Romans to adopt the religion, adulterate it with their own beliefs and sometimes spread it by the edge of the sword burning books and killing people that disagreed with them.
How can a functional brain believe in a god who can't even tell a straight story? With so many contradictions in the same story told in different places in the bible even though the same god inspired the different writers yet they couldn't get basic facts like counts and sequence of events accurately. Even the resurrection of Jesus, the foundation on which Christianity is built, has contradictory claims in the bible. That aside, neither modern historians nor the contemporaries of those stories can corroborate any of the tall tales in there.
**Sigh** Bottom line is you can't be a Christian and use your brain simultaneously. One has to be shut off for the other.

Simply abandon the use of your brain.
|Re: How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by Thattallgirl(f): 9:31am On Nov 15|
Works...more and more works. They're important but not as important as Christ leading you Himself through His Holy Spirit
|Re: How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by hopefulLandlord: 9:31am On Nov 15|
To become a Christian you have to believe in
stationary sun standing still
a Jew turned water to wine
feeding 5,000 men, not counting women and children, which might have placed the number at 10,000, maybe more with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes........then having 12 basketfuls of uneaten leftovers
red sea parting and people walked through it - on dry land
a man with plenty hair killing a thousand soldiers with the jaw of a donkey then getting outwitted by a girl who gave her plans away four different times but he was too dumb
believing a valley containing lots of dry bones that's been there for years was given flesh and blood and they all rose (where did those raised bodies go from there?)
Jacob getting his plain skinned cattle to look at stripped trees when copulating so they can give birth to stripped cattle and it worked!
3 boys walking comfortably in an oven that's so hot that it's smoke killed the soldiers that escorted them there
you also have to believe An all-knowing rational God magically made a pair of fully grown Adam/Eve and then with the prior knowledge that the novice fresh-out-of-oven Adam/Eve have had no childhood, no education, no interaction with others, and no used-car salesman experience, the rational God decided to slap a sin on them by setting them up to be outwitted by a talking snake to disobey his almighty self, causing his mighty self to pout and huff like a child storming off only to come back disguised as his son to torture and sacrifice his mighty self to forgive the petty fruit eating mishap he had irrationally caused to begin with and educate us with a moral book that teaches how to buy slaves, how to beat slaves, how to enslave children, how to sell daughters, how to downgrade woman by telling them to keep quiet, and how to slaughtering an entire nearby nations including their infants. LOL. Religion has got the duped gullible naive by the balls.

There is ntn like fervent Christian. Either you are a Christian or not. You can only fall or stand as a Christian.
|Re: How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by englishmart(m): 9:33am On Nov 15|
The same world he created and said everything was good. How come we shouldn't love this same world?
|Re: How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by BlueAngel444: 9:42am On Nov 15|
englishmart:God didn't say everything was good, God said to certain things he made, and called them good.
God definitely doesn't love everything, for he hates evil

You only become a fervent Christian after you know the truth, otherwise you are in strong delusion.

Read Isaiah 45:7
|Re: How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by Kobojunkiee: 9:58am On Nov 15|
What you have described is "How to become yet another Religious Christian" and nothing more. All of your worship and prayer is meaningless if you do not obey the Commandments of Jesus Christ as stipulated, not by your Pastors, or Paul but Jesus Christ Himself.

But he is the one who creates them...
|Re: How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by ITbomb(m): 10:16am On Nov 15|
A fervent Christain is someone who loves the Creator and the creations without unnecessary religion coloration
How can you give your car to a man of God that already have 4 while your neighbour is going to bed hungry
You feign faith in God while the love for humanity is dead in you. They give you money to share, you corner it. your boss leaves, you start stealing, your children are eating, while your overworked maid is starving, you earn 7 figure a month but others working with you are living from hand to mouth.
|Re: How To Become A Fervent Christain Believer by JourneytoEL(f): 10:32am On Nov 15|
Very nice points, but you forgot to add the baptism of the Holy Spirit. If you study the scriptures especially Acts of the Apostles, when an unbeliever repents, the apostles would baptise them , next pray for them to be filled with the Holy Spirit. It is very hard to be a good Christian without developing/fellowshipping with the Spirit. That is why Romans 8, says only those who have the Spirit of God can please him and also says, for as many who are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

You almost made a whole lot of sense here, except that, like I always say, one sad news in life is, you would have to always believe in one shiit or another. No clean sheet here. There isn't any side devoid of shiits.
It's either you believe a big sky daddy or big bang daddy.
It's either you believe a dust man, rib woman, talking snake, talking donkey or you believe fishes growing legs, hands and transforming into apes, monkeys and talking men.
It's either you believe a stationary sun or you believe a self-creating solar system that fashioned out itself.
It's either you believe the virgin birth or you believe a mysterious mitochondrial woman from Africa, who solo-impregnated herself and gave birth to all humanity.
You can believe how an inanimate, unintelligent universe created intelligent, animate organisms and humans, how a universe without eyes made a masterpiece of arts in nature and landscapes. How an inanimate, unintelligent universe sculpted a masterpiece human figure and it knows two eyes are better than one eye, and the right colors for the iris and pupil, women should have softer bodies than men, women should have thinner voices, women should have bigger asses and curves, and men should have deeks while women should have pussies. Isn't that so easy to believe? The same way, there are no engineers in the world, cars just woke up one day and designed themselves and fabricated themselves?
This issue of the universe is always a tricky one lad, when you view life from a parochial, limited perspective, it's easy to feel proud and come here to bash religion and drop all those stuffs you posted, but when you're enlightened, you know this issue is a vast, complicated one and it's so hard to feel too pompous like you know everything while in the real sense you don't know shiit.
