You can not expect to see a Priest living in a brothel do you
Where you lives and those you move with matters a lot.

Jesus Christ is your righteousness....

no matter how morally clean you are 100 pcent...without Jesus..you are still a big sinner....


being in Christ the savior...is what saves you from hell....if you fall to sin presumptuously or not....get back to your feet again, seek for forgiveness in the blood of Jesus and keep moving in his words...

the day you will leave this earth, just make sure you leave with Christ living in you and you in him

*Which of these temptations is hard for you to resist?
*How are you able to overcome them?

I have been able to stop drinking and pride by disassociating myself from useless friends.
Matthew 5:30 says
If your hand or your foot causes you to sin cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away.

Jesus uses two graphic metaphors—it is better for disciples to pluck out their eyes and cut off their hands—as a way to memorably express an important truth. It is better to deny yourself in this life for His sake than to miss living life in His kingdom and enjoying its incredible benefits.
You made this post to show us that you are a good person who does not drink and who is humble. And somehow you feel you have overcome pride.

That exactly is why Jesus came. Sadly a lot of people still can't understand the word of God. Without the spirit of God living in us, we can't serve God. But once the of God is living in you, all things become new.

It's a miracle. I'm a living witness to this. You'll die to your old ways and all the things that use to attract you wouldn't anymore.

As an example, I struggled with porn and masturbation for nearly 15 years. But once I genuinely repented, fasted for 20 days, and accepted the holly spirit, that was the end of my list and addiction to porn.

When the son sets you free, you are free indeed.

@Chatinent asked a question in one post "Why are there many churches in Nigeria?"

Let me use this guy's question to answer you @chatinent.

If there are people like this bros above , still asking basic questions like this....it is an indication of something;

1. Maybe the so many churches existing presently have shifted from the simplicity of the Gospel, therefore God will keep recruiting more people who will talk about this missing piece(simple gospel) which should have answered this brothers question.

2. Maybe where this guy is, the gospel hasn't reached there yet...so expect more churches to open to extend this gospel to his kind.

No matter the number of doctors and nurses in Nigeria, every year, new batches will be graduating from medical schools.


Back to my brothers question

The only people who are qualified for heaven are those who die in faith in Christ Jesus ie. Those who accepted Jesus as there Lord and Master. Rom.10: 6-11.

Talking about Righteous men....Check out 2 Cor.5:17-21....you will understand what righteousness means...ask questions if you wish to be cleared more.

Thanks and God bless

Sexual lust:

Masturbation
Pornography
Fornication
Adultery
Gay/Lesbianism

God knows it's been one hell of ride trying to overcome the first three, I've galled down times without numbers, risen up and still gone back to my vomit. It's like I'm even losing touch with the real reason for sex.

Church Inc. is a lucrative business.

Get a few dimwits together, put the literal fear of god (and their children, colleagues, friends, neighbors, inlaws) into them, and you'll cash out like crazy.

Just remember to make sure they're terrified of everything and everyone around them, especially Muslims, and guide their feeble minds to believe you've superhuman abilities, and your revenue will grow.

You don't have to apologise bro. You have the right to quote any post on nairaland so long you have an account and aren't banned.

I do understand your perspective. In fact it would've been perfectly valid if the same entity who created us isn't going to punish his creation forever and ever for choosing wrong when the creation never asked to be created in the first place.

It would be stupid of a parent to keep loaded guns in reach of his 10yo kid who watches lots of gun action movies and that's a "parent" not the creator of the baby

This thread just want to make people measure what is suppose to be by Grace.


It is Grace not by might we resist sin. If anyone still struggles with anything, it is suppose to be taken to God in prayer. Not by measuring how much we can resist it.

I would say sexual lost it has dealt with me countless Times especially when i was a Virgin. i would keep on praying to God to take the urges away i couldn't hold it any longer.watching porn made everything worst back then. I regret ever watching porn it corrupts our mindset like a virus would do to a phone. Now that i'm in the University its even harder for me to abstain, sometimes i would stay on my own its the girls that would start coming then i will start lusting after them.

I say if there is one sin I would like God to reverse as no sin....then that's sexual lust...cos my body craves for it.
however, its still a sin no matter how pleasurable....and I have so far been able to discipline myself...

Thanks to God

Fear not brethren....

It's part of being human. The real sin is in rejecting that which the Lord your God has made to be all perfect.

Matter will always love and cherish matter. Look at this thread and see how many people are having the same problem. Not even your religious leaders can hold themselves back.

If your soul loves sex and you find a willing partner, please by all means enjoy your humanity. It's futile trying to stop yourself. shocked

Like hopefulLandlord rightly puts it, It's simply how humans are wired to respond to that which the Lord your God has rightfully made.... cheesy

Perfect is his works..

Unless una no like how God create una .. angry angry
