Christianity is a monotheistic religion centered on the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament. Its followers, known as Christians, believe that Jesus is the son of God and the Messiah (or Christ) prophesied in the Old Testament, the part of their scriptures they have in common with Judaism.

Theosophy, Anthroposophy and Swedenborgianism have had a reasonable amount of influence on modern day life: Theosophy brought many Buddhist and Hindu texts to the west, Anthroposophy brought new forms of teaching and mystical elements of Christianity to the mainstream, and Swedenborgianism has influences on philosophy and poetry. This article explores all three schools, and their respective societies and churches.
It is a sin to be unthankful. We hurt others deeply by being unthankful and it is a blot on our character. Not only does the Bible teach thanksgiving toward God but also love and kindness toward one another which includes being thankful to one another for the good done to us.
The Parable of the Talents teaches us that God expects us to use what he has given us in the form of abilities and go to work but it also teaches us that fear can get in the way. Fear and faith do not mix.
In the Parable of the Tares Jesus taught us that there is no middle ground to be had in life. We seek for a gray area that is neither black nor white desiring salvation for those who cannot have it. We seek in vain.
Trying to understand mainstream Christianity
I end up forgetting all He has done for me, and I fall. Sometimes I fall hard, but every time He lifts me up again, brushes off the filth and encourages me to try again only to see me fall over and over again. But HE DOESN'T GIVE UP ON ME!
One of the most common concerns among believers is trying to figure out the right path that God has planned for them. They pray that God will give them a clear direction, stating they want to serve God’s will and not waste their time going down the wrong path. The problem is, most of these people already have a direction in mind. They then get frustrated or confused when God doesn’t seem to be leading them down the path they think they should be going.
Why you may not have mastered the spiritual weapon of faith
God gave everyone a specific set of talents and abilities, don't waste them or they may just end up being taken away
