SURVEY SATURDAY

Capture Survey pic

It has been quite a while since I have presented you with a survey, and because it is the desire of my heart to reach precious Catholics with the truth according to God’s Word, the Bible, I am wondering if any of you who are Catholic are finding this present series helpful.

I am also wondering if those of you who are born-again, Bible believing Christians, and who may not have been aware of the teachings of the Catholic church, are finding this series helpful, as well, in order to help you better understand your dear Catholic friends and co-workers as you seek to help them come to know all that Jesus Christ accomplished for us:

1. Through His sinless life

2. Through His “once for all” sacrifice on the cross in our place that completely satisfied the wrath that God has towards mankind because of our sins and rebellion against Him, and

3. Through Jesus Christ’s glorious resurrection from the dead that clearly showed that God accepted His death as fully paying the debt of our sins and removing the barrier of sin that separates us from Him because He is completely Holy. One must, however, personally choose to place their faith and trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ alone for their salvation, and not in their good works or in the sacramental system of the Catholic church to save them.

For those of you who may never have read any posts in this Catholicism series before, I just want you to know that once a month I take the reader through a portion of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and compare many of their teachings against Scriptures in a Catholic New Testament Bible in order to show Catholics and Christians alike, the extreme importance of testing the teachings of men against the truth of God’s Word so that they will not be deceived. I pray that you will consider looking into this series when time allows, and that many of you who have been reading through this series will consider taking part in the following survey which will only take a few moments of your time. You have a full week to participate in this survey; your ability to vote ends a week from today.

Thank you very much in advance!

 

 

God Bless You

RELATED SCRIPTURES

“He committed no sin; no one heard a lie come from his lips. When he was insulted he did not answer back with an insult; when he suffered he did not threaten, but placed his hopes in God, the righteous Judge. Christ himself carried our sins in his body to the cross, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. You were like sheep that had lost their way; but now you have been brought back to follow the Shepherd and Keeper of your souls.” (1 Peter 2:22-25)

“For it is by God’s grace that you have been saved, through faith. It is not your own doing, but God’s gift. There is nothing here to boast of, since it is not the result of your own efforts. God is our Maker, and in our union with Christ Jesus he has created us for a life of good works, which he has already prepared for us to do.”                  (Ephesians 2:8-10)

“Now we know that everything in the Law applies to those who live under the Law, in order to stop all human excuses and bring the whole world under God’s judgment. Because no man is put right in God’s sight by doing what the Law requires; what the Law does is to make man know that he has sinned. But now God’s way of putting men right with himself has been revealed, and it has nothing to do with the law. The Law and the prophets gave their witness to it: God puts men right through their faith in Jesus Christ. God does this to all who believe in Christ, because there is no difference at all: all men have sinned and are far away from God’s saving presence. But by the free gift of God’s grace they are all put right with him through Christ Jesus, who sets them free. God offered him so that by his death he should become the means by which men’s sins are forgiven, through their faith in him. God did this in order to demonstrate his righteousness. In the past he was patient and overlooked men’s sins; but now in the present time he deals with men’s sins, to demonstrate his righteousness. In this way God shows that he himself is righteous and that he puts right everyone who believes in Jesus. What, then, can we boast about? Nothing! And what is the reason for this? Is it that we obey the law? No, but that we believe. For we conclude that a man is put right with God only through faith, and not by doing what the law commands. Or is God only the God of the Jews? Is he not the God of the Gentiles also? Of course he is. God is one and he will put the Jews right with himself on the basis of their faith, and the Gentiles right through their faith. Does this mean that we do away with the Law by this faith? No, not at all; instead, we uphold the Law.” (Romans 3:19-31)

“Jesus, then, is the High Priest that meets our needs. He is holy; he has no fault or sin in him; he has been set apart from sinful men and raised above the heavens. He is not like other high priests; he does not need to offer sacrifices every day, for his own sins first, and then for the sins of the people. He offered one sacrifice, once and for all when he offered himself.” (Hebrews 7:26,27)

“Happy are those whose wrongs God has forgiven, whose sins he has covered over! Happy is the man whose sins the Lord will not keep account of!” (Romans 4:7,8)

“Jesus answered him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me.” (John 14:6)

“Jesus is the one of whom the scripture says, ‘The stone that you the builders despised turned out to be the most important stone.’ Salvation is to be found through him alone; for there is no one else in all the world, whose name God has given to men, by whom we can be saved.” (Acts 4:11,12)

“For there is one God, and there is one who brings God and men together, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself to redeem all men.” (1 Timothy 2:5,6)

“This, then, is the witness: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has this life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write you this so that you may know that you have eternal life–you that believe in the name of the Son of God.” (1 John 5:11-13)

UPDATE: After crying out to God for His help concerning my computer problems, I came across some information on Wednesday that resolved all of the serious problems, and my computer has not crashed even once over the past three days, praise His name! Therefore, Lord willing, in March I am hoping to present to you:

1) A post concerning the many apparitions of the Virgin Mary in light of Scripture

2) Another installment in the Catholicism series

It has been quite a while since I have presented you with an end of the month Survey Saturday post, and even though today is Sunday I still decided to do this post for three important reasons:

1) In light of the new series on Catholicism that I just started, I’d like to see just how many of you are former Catholics, and how many of you are presently Catholic yet may have some questions or concerns. So if you would please consider taking part in this survey it would help me greatly.

2) I have heard from a few subscribers to this blog that they have not been receiving notices from WordPress concerning when new posts are published on this blog, and I’d like to try and do something to remedy this problem. So if you have subscribed to this blog and have not always been notified, please vote accordingly on the poll below so that I can see if this is just a minor problem, or a larger and continuous one.

3) When reading the titles of the posts that people have read over the past week or so, I have been noticing that the ‘If You’d Like To Contact Me’ post has been read at least a few times, and yet I have not been contacted by anyone. So in order to see if there is also a problem with me receiving your messages, please vote accordingly on that question, as well. I don’t want any of you to think that the reason you didn’t receive a reply from me is because I don’t care about things that concern you.

So with all of that in mind, I’d now like to present you with three surveys, and would deeply appreciate it if you’d please consider participating in them. These polls remain active for a full week, so please place your vote by next Saturday afternoon.

Thank you ahead of time for your participation!

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you took time to participate in the surveys above, thank you so very much!

Thank you very much also for stopping by and taking time out of your relaxing Summer weekend (at least I hope that it has been so far) to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You

~Mary/Living4HisGlory

 

UPDATE:

1) Lord willing, I hope to find a good sermon to present to you later on today.

2) Lord willing, later today or during the week I will begin writing Part 2 in the new series in which we will continue comparing the Catholic New Testament Bible to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is my continued hope and prayer that God’s Holy Spirit will open the hearts and minds of Catholics to the truth revealed in Scripture so that they  would come to know true joy and peace that comes from knowing who Jesus Christ truly is as God’s Word  reveals Him to be. I also pray that they will come to understand all that Jesus Christ accomplished for us through His sinless life, His death on the cross in our place because of our sins, and through His glorious resurrection from the dead. I hope to have it completed in a week or so, depending on how much free time I have.

Welcome to another SURVEY SATURDAY. Thank you so very much to those of you who have taken the time to participate in some of my previous surveys! However, even though I now know that some of you are interested in seeing me write posts ‘exposing false teachers,’ and that some of you also desire to see ‘book reviews‘ here (Lord willing, one False Teacher Friday and one Book Review coming next month), I would truly appreciate it if you could please let me know who it is that you would like me to write about, and what books you would like me to review for you.

I still have not received any helpful suggestions from any of you, so I will just continue to pray and share with those of you who read this blog, whatever is of utmost importance so that you will not only become aware of these wolves in sheep’s clothing, but also so that you will become aware of the numerous Christian books that are appealing to many Christians and sadly leading many of them astray.

I am here not only to honor God and to share Biblical truth and to expose false teachings and spiritual deception through what I write, but also I am here with the desire to encourage and to help those of you who are searching for answers. With that being said, I would truly appreciate it if those of you who read this blog from time to time would please provide me with a little more information so that I can serve you better through what I write. It can be quite frustrating to me at times knowing what some of you are looking for, yet not knowing the false teachers that you would like me to write about, or the books that you would like to see me do reviews on. So please consider sending me a message with your concerns and suggestions using the Contact Form below. You can even send me a message without using your name, if that would encourage some of you to contact me in order to help you.

As I have mentioned in my previous SURVEY SATURDAY posts:

I will be presenting some type of survey to you usually once a month, (Lord willing) on the last Saturday of each month, to give those of you who read this blog from time to time, an opportunity to submit your requests to me as to what you would like to see me write about here on this blog in the future.

Concerning the survey for this month:

Would you like me to write more poems? Then please vote accordingly, and I would truly appreciate it if you would leave me a short comment as to what topic you’d like me to write one about, and I will consider writing on that topic which I will always write from a Christian perspective.

Do you have some concerns about your pastor or a certain pastor or teacher that you have been listening to, or something that they are teaching or something that they have taught in the past that has been troubling you, and you’re searching for some information and answers? Then please vote for the Category False Teacher Friday and send me a personal message using the ‘Contact Form‘ below –or you can leave a comment below. You can choose to remain anonymous, if you’d like, but please let me know who it is that you have concerns about, and why, and I will be happy to do some research on that pastor, teacher, or topic, and focus on that particular person or teaching in a main post, or if he clearly qualifies as a false teacher in some way, I will address his false teachings in the series of posts that, Lord willing, I will be continuing to write in 2016, under the Category entitled, ‘FALSE TEACHER FRIDAY- LEARN TO DISCERN – LEARNING THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A BEREAN.’ I may share an in depth report on that certain pastor or teacher, or I may simply write briefly about the person or teaching and then include links to some good posts addressing that person or teaching that have been written by other Christians who are well respected and trusted. However, I continue to urge you to always test everything you read and listen to against God’s Word to see if it is true or not (Acts 17:11) –including everything that I write.

Please always keep in mind that no matter how many years a pastor or teacher has been preaching or teaching, or how well respected they may be, we must always continue to examine the Scriptures daily to see if what is being said (and done by those who claim to speak for God) is true,’ (Acts 17:11) because God’s Word is filled with warnings about deception and false teachers! (Matthew 24:4-11, Acts 20:26-31, 1 Timothy 4:1, 2 Timothy 4:1-4, 2 Peter 2:1-3, to name just a few).

Maybe you have some concerns after reading a certain book that left you feeling very troubled, and you’re searching for some information on the author to see if what they are teaching is Biblical or not. If that’s you, then please feel free to add Book Reviews where it says Other, and place your vote for Book Reviews. Also, please consider sharing your concerns and the name of the author and book with me by using the Contact Form below, and I will do some research and write a post addressing the author and book in question. I am considering the possibility of reading some books later on this year — if time allows — and writing some book reviews, as well. I am not an expert on any certain topic, by any means, but I am definitely a Berean and a detective-at-heart and will gladly do all that I can — with God’s help — to give you some helpful Biblical information to put those troublesome thoughts to rest, and especially to encourage you through God’s Word in the process.

I post these surveys because it is my desire to help those of you who are searching for Biblical truth concerning what may be troubling you, so your participation is very important to me in order to help you.

In order to serve you better, this month’s survey will determine what Category of posts I should focus my time writing on. So all you have to do is vote for your favorite Category of posts, and I will write more of those, and less of other ones. Unless, of course, I see a serious need to write something in order to warn you. Because when it’s all said and done, I write to earnestly contend for the faith (Jude 3) and to please God alone (Galatians 1:10); I do not write certain things in order to gain followers. Some of the posts that I will be writing later this year will prove that, because I am almost certain that I will sadly lose some of you who read this blog. If it turns out to be you, all I ask is that you would first please pray for discernment, and at least read my posts and test everything in light of Scripture regardless of what you presently believe, and please listen to the videos that I will be posting, as well, if you happen to find yourself thinking that you no longer want to continue reading this blog.

Before I get carried away, here now is this month’s survey. This poll remains active for a full week! Your participation will be greatly appreciated and very helpful to me in order to serve you better throughout this coming year! You can also choose a Category to vote for from the list at the top of my blog that I didn’t include in the poll below, or add an idea of your own for me to prayerfully consider writing about, by adding it to where it says “other.”

Thank you very much for stopping by and taking time out of your relaxing weekend (at least I hope it has been so far) to read some of my posts and poems –and for voting!

God Bless You

If I don’t receive any additional feedback besides participating in this survey I may discontinue posting these Survey Saturdays and just continue sharing information with you that I believe to be very important for you to be aware of. 

If you’d like to participate in what could be my last Survey Saturday poll, I urge you to vote and to share your suggestions with me, as well. Or, if you’d like, you can send me a personal message by going to my Page above, entitled: ‘If You’d Like To Contact Me,’ and share your requests with me that way.

FYI: As I mentioned in a few previous posts, Lord willing, I will be writing  posts in the near future addressing ‘mysticism in the church‘ and ‘spiritual formation,’ because, sadly, these teachings are leading many Christians astray these days. If you are interested in learning more, please be watching for these important posts.

I am still in the process of writing a post on the important topic of mysticism and how it is merging with Christianity and deceiving many Christians. In this post I will also be addressing how many Christians are being led astray by Spiritual Formation. Lord willing, I hope to have this post completed by the end of next week. So if you’re interested, please check back here from time to time.

When time allows, I also encourage you to please visit LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH, HERESCOPE, and many other very good blogs that I posted links to in the side bar where you will find many very good articles on these subjects, as well.

Do you have a suggestion of your own? Then please send me an email. Since this may be the last survey that I post due to the lack of participation, voting and sharing your requests are extremely important and will be greatly appreciated!

Here’s my email address if you’d like to personally contact me: marydalke@yahoo.com

The polls most frequently responded to shows that many of you have left more than one church and that you feel betrayed by leadership. This month’s question is:

If you are still attending a church that you know you should leave, what is keeping you there?

Whether you’d like to vote in the poll below, or if you’d rather contact me personally and share your suggestions concerning what you would like me to consider writing about in the upcoming year (Lord willing), I’ll be looking forward to receiving your replies and requests!

This poll will be active for a full week, so you have until the end of Saturday, December 4th, 2015  to place your vote! Feel free to add your own answer where it says “Other.”

 

 

 

 

Thank you for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

However, even though I now know that some of you are interested in seeing me write posts ‘exposing false teachers,’ and you also desire to see ‘book reviews‘ here, I would truly appreciate it if you could please let me know who it is that you would like me to write about, and what books you would like me to review for you.

(Matthew 24:4-11, Acts 20:26-31, 1 Timothy 4:1, 2 Timothy 4:1-4, 2 Peter 2:1-3, to name just a few).

Maybe you have some concerns after reading a certain book that left you feeling very troubled, and you’re searching for some information on the author to see if what they are teaching is Biblical or not. Share your concerns and the name of the author and book, and I will do some research and write a post addressing the author and book in question. I am considering the possibility of writing some book reviews later this year –if time allows. I am not an expert on any certain topic, by any means, but I am definitely a Berean and a detective-at-heart and will gladly do all that I can — with God’s help — to give you some helpful information to put those troublesome thoughts to rest, and to encourage you in the process.

I am posting these surveys because it is my desire to help those of you who are searching for Biblical truth concerning what may be troubling you, so your participation is very important to me in order to help you.

FYI: As I mentioned in a previous post, I will — Lord willing — be writing  posts in the near future addressing ‘mysticism in the church‘ and ‘spiritual formation,’ because, sadly, these teachings are leading many Christians astray these days. If you are interested in learning more, please be watching for these important posts.

When time allows, I also encourage you to please visit LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS RESEARCH and HERESCOPE Blogs where you will find many very good articles on these subjects.

Do you have a suggestion of your own? Then please add your request in the area where it says ‘other.’

Your participation in this poll will be greatly appreciated!

 

Thank you for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to take part in this survey in order to help me to be able to serve God and you better!

God Bless You

Welcome to another  ‘Survey Saturday.’ I will be presenting some type of survey to you once a month, (Lord willing) on the last Saturday of each month, to give those of you who read this blog from time to time, an opportunity to submit your requests to me as to what you would like to see me write about here on this blog in the future. Would you like me to write more poems? Then please vote accordingly, and consider leaving me a comment as to what topic you’d like me to write one about, and I will consider writing on that topic which I will always write from a Christian perspective.

Do you have some concerns about your pastor or a certain pastor or teacher that you have been listening to, or something that they are teaching or something they have taught in the past that has been troubling you, and you’re searching for some information and answers? Then please vote accordingly and please leave a comment or send me a personal message using the ‘contact form‘ below and let me know who it is that you have concerns about, and why, and I will be happy to do some research on that pastor, teacher, or topic, and focus on that particular person or teaching in the new series of posts that, Lord willing, I will continue to write once a month on Fridays, entitled, ‘FALSE TEACHER FRIDAY- LEARNING THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING A BEREAN.’ I may share an in depth report on that certain pastor or teacher, or I may simply write briefly about the person or teaching and then include links to some good posts addressing that person or teaching that have been written by other Christians who are well respected and trusted. However, I continue to urge you to always  test everything you read and listen to against God’s Word to see if it is true or not (Acts 17:11) –including everything that I write.

COMING THE FIRST WEEK IN APRIL –LORD WILLING:

‘ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD…OR THE WORD OF MAN?’ — A COMPARISON OF GOD’S WORD, THE BIBLE, WITH THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’ (UPDATE: Because I decided to read the whole Catechism book (which has over 700 pages) instead of briefly looking through it, I am not quite sure when I will have this post finished. Lord willing, hopefully by the end of May or June).
