As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Accusing God?

    Psalm 13:1Ė2 How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? 2 How long must I take counsel in my soul and have sorrow in my heart all the day? How long shall my enemy be exalted over me?
    Is David expressing his feeling of God's neglect or making an accusation?

      David doesn't understand that God already answered both his past and future prayers. Most preachers don't even get that.
      God is like......"I sent my only son to die for every imperfection in your world. Is there something else you think I should do?
      Imagine HIS pain. He created this world of yours."

        Is it reasonable to compare David's words to others such as Job (Job 1:20-22) and conclude that David is, indeed, sinning in Psalm 13:1-2?

        Thanks for the replies!

          David a man God said was a man after His own heart!!

          Psalm 13:1 How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?

          Psalm 13:2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me?

          Psalm 13:3 Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

          Psalm 13:4 Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

          Psalm 13:5 But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

          Psalm 13:6 I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

            The souls of the martyrs under the altar ask the same thing, eh?

            Revelation 6:10 They called out in a loud voice, "How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?"
            I champion GOD’s holiness:
            - GOD did not need evil so did not create evil for any reason.
            - Evil is creature-created by their free will.

            I champion Our Free will:
            - All were created with a free will able to chose for HIM or against HIM.

                Jesus death covers-repented sin. The mortal themselves-MUST repent to get sins blotted out.( Acts 3:19)--- Repentence = the stopping of the doing of a sin. Doing it over and over and asking forgiveness over and over is not repentence.

                  David is speaking honestly with God about the pain in Davidís heart. The Holy Spirit May have had that information recorded in Scripture so that Godís people (us, Jews and gentiles, not just biological Israel) would know that we donít need to pretend nothing hurts when our soul aches. It is recorded in a Psalm, a song to be sung bu the assembled people, to proclaim to God that we hurt deep down where only God can reach. However, the Psalm does not end at verse 2, does it.

                    True.
                    Preaching in error is often accompanied by a lack of research on a topic.

                    Matthew 18:21
                    Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me,
                    and I forgive him? As many as seven times?”
                    22“I tell you, not as many as seven,” Jesus said to him, “but 70 times seven

                    Luke 17:3-4
                    Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him,
                    and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying,
                    ‘I repent,’ you must forgive him.”

                      Yes, that is what is required of a mortal. Here is Gods requirement for Repentence--1Cor 6:9-11 makes the statement--That is what some of you were( past tense) not currently doing unacecceptable sins. Because it goes on to say that if one is doing one of those unacceptable sins--They will NOT enter Gods kingdom( be saved)--Galations 5:9-11 is another list that says one will not enter Gods kingdom if they are doing one of them. Yet 99% on earth do at least one daily. The teachers telling others you are saved or born again are blind guides.

                        Born-again believers seek to live a better life today than we lived yesterday and PTL We know that if we confers and repent when we fall short that God is faithful and just to forgive and wash us clean!!!
