    New Community Design

    Thinking about doing a refresh design for Talk Jesus community here, possibly using a different software platform as well to replace the current. It'll still remain a "forum" software nonetheless. Please vote at this poll and share your feedback.

    Facing Our Loneliness

    Everyone has lonely moments in life, but when loneliness begins to define our lives, it causes serious problems. We compromise our principles to try to fill the emotional emptiness. We choose behavior that harms our health, relationships, and finances. The consequences can be devastating. Learn how God desires to fulfill every longing you have for meaningful connection.

    Obsession

    But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.
    Daniel 12:13

    Perfumes in the 1980s became stronger than those of earlier times as designers tried to satisfy the demands of sensory-oriented Yuppies. It began with "Giorgio" by Giorgio of Beverly Hills. Then Christian Dior introduced "Poison," which had such a strong floral fragrance that some New York restaurants banned it. Paris-based Guerlain introduced its sandalwood-rich "Samsara;" and in 1985, Calvin Klein debuted his "Obsession."

    The word "obsession" often has a negative connotation, implying neurotic preoccupation; but it's an appropriate word for the way many people live. We're obsessed with pleasure, with sports, with hobbies, with goals, with entertainment.


    Some believers grow obsessed with current trends, biblical prophecy, and the signs of the times. A healthy interest in those subjects is good, but God doesn't want us to be consumed by them. He told Daniel to go away and occupy himself with the work while awaiting the fulfillment of prophecy. That's what we're to do as well. Study the prophecies of the Last Days, but don't neglect the work of today.

    Bible prophecy helps us to better understand the future and realize the urgent need to spread the Gospel. It motivates us to personal purity and gives us hope in a hopeless age.
