Love me or hate me!

Who am I?

I am a reformed (Calvinist) Christian, who believes in the authority of the Bible as an absolute. I am saved by grace and not by works. There was or is nothing in me that attracted God to have pity on my soul.
I love Jesus Christ and His teachings. I love them as the most precious treasure I will ever have.
I long with all my heart to go to heaven; be with my Lord and sin no more!
I believe in teaching my kids to love the Lord, and yet only God can give them that love for Him.
I believe  in teaching children to honor and obey their parents. And respect authorities.
I believe in the 10 comandments.
I am 100% pro life.
I support mariage between a man and a woman only. And that marriage, to last "until death due us apart".
I believe in helping the poor, the orphans and the widows.
I believe in modesty of speech, dress and thought.
I believe that women are to be homemakers, lovers of their homes.
I believe that children are a blessing from he Lord and never a burden.
I believe that men are the head of the home.
I believe in hell.
I believe in heaven.
I believe in eternity.
I believe in grace, repentance, salvation, justification and sanctification.
I believe that God is 3 persons in One.
I believe He will come back again for His chosen ones and to judge the world. And Everyone will see Him.
I believe in a literal creation of the world (6 days and rested on the 7th)
I believe that I live, because He lives!

That is me...

Wow! Are these the 95 thesis you just hammered to the door? :)
Great statements of faith.

geylii said...

is being a calvanist same as the beliefs of protestants?
i love your blog though :)

Norma said...

Hi Geylii, in origin yes... it is the same, since being protestant come from Martin Luther, when he wrote the 95 theses explaining why the Catholic church was abusing the people and selling the forgiveness of sins... so he "protested" against that to go back to the Bible and translated it into german so that everyone could read it. And to see that it was God's grace and not a series of works that saved you. Sadly, many churches have drifted from the teachings of the Bible alone adaptig their beliefs to modern doctrines and so now there are some doctrinal points that are different. Being Reformed (or Calvinist) is going back to the Bible as the reformers did.(Martin Luther, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, A.W Pink, ...) Hope this helps. Blessings.
