When you’re tired and discourage from fruitless efforts,
God knows how hard you have tried.
When you’ve cried so long your heart is in anguish,
God Has counted your tears.
If you feel that your life is on hold and time passed you by,
God is waiting for you.
When you’re lonely and your friends are to busy even for just a phone call,
God is by your side.
When you think you’ve tried everything and don’t know where to turn.
God Has a solution.
When nothing makes sense and you’re confuse or frustrated,
God Has the answer.
If suddenly your outlook is brighter and you find traces of hope,
God has whispered to you,
When things are going well and you have much to thank for,
God Has blessed you.
When something joyful happens and you’re filled with awe,
God Has smiled upon you.
When you have a purpose to follow and a dream to fulfill
God Has opens your eyes and called you by name.
Remember that wherever you are and whatever you are facing.
God Knows and He is always there for you!
Please pass this to all your lonely and hopeless friends.

Blessed day!Great!Ang lahat ay nasa kalooban ng Panginoon na sumasalahat. Siya ang magpapatotoo sa Kanyang mga anak. We might say we know Him pero Siya lang ang totoong nakakakilala sa atin. Nakikilala Niya ang Kanyang mga tupa. He knows very well kung sino ang tupa, sino ang usa at kung sino ang kambing sa mga anak Niya, although He loves everybody. Ngunit, iba ang minamahal sa kinalulugdan at iba rin ang kinakahabagan sa sinasamahan. “Faith without work is dead.”God be with you all.

Hi, James! Mapagpalang umaga sayo! I am a Born Again Christian.Purihin ang Panginoon sa buhay mo na nagbibigay oras in an online evangelism. God will bless you for this.Let me share something at alam kong sinasamahan ako ng Banal na Espiritu at binibigyan Niya ng matalas na kapangyarihan ang mga salitang ito :-Ang tunay na kapayapaan ay nagmumula sa kagalakan. Ang tunay na kapahingahan ay nagmumula sa puso na punung-puno ng kagalakan, nag-uumapaw na pananampalataya at pag-ibig sa Panginoon at sa kapwa. Ang lahat ay nagmumula sa tunay na pagsuko ng ating mga puso sa ating Panginoon. Minsan, nagtatanong tayo ng maraming ‘bakit’ or minsan bakit may mga hindi nagbabago sa atin. Yun ay nagmumula sa hindi pagsuko ng puso. -Ang subukan ay nagmumula sa isipan, ang hubugan ay sa puso. God be with you!

“What is the difference between religion and spirituality?”
Answer: Before we explore the difference between religion and spirituality, we must first define the two terms. Religion can be defined as “belief in God or gods to be worshipped, usually expressed in conduct and ritual” or “any specific system of belief, worship, etc., often involving a code of ethics.” Spirituality can be defined as “the quality or fact of being spiritual, non-physical” or “predominantly spiritual character as shown in thought, life, etc.; spiritual tendency or tone.” To put it briefly, religion is a set of beliefs and rituals that claim to get a person in a right relationship with God, and spirituality is a focus on spiritual things and the spiritual world instead of physical/earthly things.
The most common misconception about religion is that Christianity is just another religion like Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, etc. Sadly, many who claim to be adherents of Christianity do practice Christianity as if it were a religion. To many, Christianity is nothing more than a set of rules and rituals that a person has to observe in order to go to heaven after death. That is not true Christianity. True Christianity is not a religion; rather, it is having a right relationship with God by receiving Jesus Christ as the Savior-Messiah, by grace through faith. Yes, Christianity does have “rituals” to observe (e.g., baptism and communion). Yes, Christianity does have “rules” to follow (e.g., do not murder, love one another, etc.). However, these rituals and rules are not the essence of Christianity. The rituals and rules of Christianity are the result of salvation. When we receive salvation through Jesus Christ, we are baptized as a proclamation of that faith. We observe communion in remembrance of Christ’s sacrifice. We follow a list of do’s and don’ts out of love for God and gratitude for what He has done.
The most common misconception about spirituality is that there are many forms of spirituality, and all are equally valid. Meditating in unusual physical positions, communing with nature, seeking conversation with the spirit world, etc., may seem to be “spiritual,” but they are in fact false spirituality. True spirituality is possessing the Holy Spirit of God as a result of receiving salvation through Jesus Christ. True spirituality is the fruit that the Holy Spirit produces in a person’s life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). Spirituality is all about becoming more like God, who is spirit (John 4:24) and having our character conformed to His image (Romans 12:1-2).
What religion and spirituality have in common is that they both can be false methods of having a relationship with God. Religion tends to substitute the heartless observance of rituals for a genuine relationship with God. Spirituality tends to substitute connection with the spirit world for a genuine relationship with God. Both can be, and often are, false paths to God. At the same time, religion can be valuable in the sense that it points to the fact that there is a God and that we are somehow accountable to Him. The only true value of religion is its ability to point out that we have fallen short and are in need of a Savior. Spirituality can be valuable in that it points out that the physical world is not all there is. Human beings are not only material, but also possess a soul-spirit. There is a spiritual world around us of which we should be aware. The true value of spirituality is that it points to the fact that there is something and someone beyond this physical world to which we need to connect.
Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of both religion and spirituality. Jesus is the One to whom we are accountable and to whom true religion points. Jesus is the One to whom we need to connect and the One to whom true spirituality points.

Mga minamahal kong kamangagawa kay Kristo… napakahalagang tayo ay magkaisa sa pagbabahagi ng EBANGHELYO…
sa ating mga kapamilya, kamag- anak, kakilala, kaibigan at LAHAT ng maabot natin…
na sila ay makakilala at tumanggap kay HESUS ang Panginoon at tanging tagapagligtas natin.
gamitin ang bawat opportunidad na binigay sa atin na magbahagi maging sa public, personal, cellphone at INTERNET (like YM at FB)
tayo ay maging mga maliliit na liwanag sa sanlibutan at tumayo sa KATOTOHANAN…
sa sanlibutang naging corrupt at naghirap dahil sa KASALANAN at ka immoralidad sa lipunan.
BAGONG TAON… BAGONG BUHAY… 2011… tayo na at kumilos para sa tunay na pagbabago sa ikauunlad ng bayan!
walang mangyayari kung patuloy tayong mag sisiraan at patuloy na mananahimik na lamang…
bawat araw at oras ay mahalaga… bawat kaluluwa na hindi nanampalataya kay Hesus ay mapapahamak sa impyerno…
kung mahal mo ang DIYOS at iyong KAPWA… makinig ka sa napakadakilang pagtawag Niya.
Kaisa ka ba sa MISYONG ito? kabahagi ka ba sa MINISTERYONG ito?
(Matthew 28:18-19; Ephesians 5:16)

Or how about the so called “Symmetria” the walking church or the systematic process fellowship which focus on creating an ideal president or ideal dictator or or an ideal king . any way all of them must think of future’s generations employment or businesses,,,, symmetria believes in one nation but with many many banners or flags which represents their states nation or company.our GOD is our collective ambition, goal or mindset. which is to be all rich with peace and order in every society or community.

The existence of so many religions and the claim that all religions lead to God without question confuses many who are earnestly seeking the truth about God, with the end result sometimes being that some despair of ever reaching the absolute truth on the subject. Or they end up embracing the universalist claim that all religions lead to God. Of course, skeptics also point to the existence of so many religions as proof that either you cannot know God or that God simply does not exist.
Romans 1:19-21 contains the biblical explanation for why there are so many religions. The truth of God is seen and known by every human being because God has made it so. Instead of accepting the truth about God and submitting to it, most human beings reject it and seek their own way to understand God. But this leads not to enlightenment regarding God, but to futility of thinking. Here is where we find the basis of the “many religions.”
Many people do not want to believe in a God who demands righteousness and morality, so they invent a God who makes no such requirements. Many people do not want to believe in a God who declares it impossible for people to earn their own way to heaven. So they invent a God who accepts people into heaven if they have completed certain steps, followed certain rules, and/or obeyed certain laws, at least to the best of their ability. Many people do not want a relationship with a God who is sovereign and omnipotent. So they imagine God as being more of a mystical force than a personal and sovereign ruler.
The existence of so many religions is not an argument against God’s existence or an argument that truth about God is not clear. Rather, the existence of so many religions is demonstration of humanity’s rejection of the one true God. Mankind has replaced Him with gods that are more to their liking. This is a dangerous enterprise. The desire to recreate God in our own image comes from the sin nature within us—a nature that will eventually “reap destruction” (Galatians 6:7-8).
Do all religions lead to God? Actually they do. All but one leads to His judgment. Only one—Christianity—leads to His forgiveness and eternal life. No matter what religion one embraces, everyone will meet God after death (Hebrews 9:27). All religions lead to God, but only one religion will result in God’s acceptance, because only through His salvation through faith in Jesus Christ can anyone approach Him with confidence. The decision to embrace the truth about God is important for a simple reason: eternity is an awfully long time to be wrong. This is why right thinking about God is so critical.

For me it doesn’t matter if were a chiristian, budhism, Islam or what. What is more important is that, we all both believe in God. And all of us has faith and love of God.
