• Hi Guest!

    You may be aware that "big tech" has been aggressively censoring conservatives on Twitter, Facebook, Google, Instagram, YouTube and other social media platforms. This is tyrannical and suppressive towards Christians and conservatives.

    Please share Talk Jesus community on every platform you have to give conservatives an outlet and safe community to be apart of.

Seven Marks Of True Spirituality—Facts of the Matter

1. The desire to be holy rather than happy

"I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ."(Philippians 4:8)

Q&A-Do I really desire to be holy, or is just being happy alright with me?

2. The desire to see the honor of God advanced through our life even if it means suffering temporary dishonor or loss

"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body."(2 Corinthians 4:8-10)

Q&A-Am I willing to do the things that it takes to honor God,even though it might mean that my life might suffer?

3. The desire to carry our cross

"However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace."(Acts 20:24)

Q&A-Am I willing to go the distance for Christ?

4. The desire to see everything from God's point of view

"We are asking God that you may see things, as it were, from His point of view by being given spiritual insight and understanding."(Colossians 1:9 – Phillips Translation)

Q&A-Do I really agree with God`s point of view. And is it represented in my walk?

5. The desire to die right rather than to live wrong

"Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, 'O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.'"(Daniel 3:16-18)

Q&A-Am I really willing to die for the sake of Jesus Christ?

6. The desire to see others advance at our expense

"For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake."(2 Corinthians 4:5)

Q&A-Am I willing to give or even share with my brother/sister the creadit that I worked so hard for?

7. The practice of habitually making eternity-judgments instead of time-judgments

"We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."(2 Corinthians 4:18)

Q&A-Am I really willing to wait,(to suffer today for a better tomorrow),it out?

Brother Troy, I know this is an old post but one that deserves merit.

No discussions, just simply the truth.
Praise God for it.

Praise you Lord God for this servant, my brother in Christ. Lord, may your hand be upon him and your Word in his heart belt forth boldly the Word of God. In Jesus name. Amen
