Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Having not Seen

Jesus is described for us like this:
Having Not Seen
ye love; in whom though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory. 1 Peter 1:8

Brotherly Kindness
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned/sincere love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again. 1 Peter 1:22-23

Destruction of things that are seen.
The joy of the Lord shall be our strength which is found in things not seen. Things that are seen can be destroyed. We can see a house and as such we can tear it to the ground, same as with our brethren.

Impossible to destroy
Therefore with unveiled faces/eyes beholding the Lord we are being transformed from glory to glory just as from the Lord the Spirit who is unseen and will never be torn down. A Christian is defined simply because they have a love of the truth namely Jesus who is unseen.

Our Brother
Jesus is our brother and we are called sons of God. We know that when He shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see Him as He is. (1 Jn 3:2)

Hey Puritan!

Ya know, I was concerned when you took off for a bit. I checked daily here to see if you were back. When I noticed you were I tried posting a welcome back/happy easter message but your comments were turned off.

I wrote Magi an e-mail and asked him to express these things to you. I left a message on my own site hoping you would come by and read it. I placed a message in your last post wishing you the best but you didn't say a word.

Was there something I have done wrong? Should I too remove your link from my site which I have never done?

No not at all Michael I have always appreciated your comments/thoughts and consider you a great Man Of God.

What I have read from you since I got back was your comment yesterday which said:

"Hmmmmm....Is this going to work?"

Which I didn't understand so I just left it. Please feel free to Contact Me by Email anytime.

I added your link back to this site because you seem to want it kept here.

Best regards

A Call to Action I don't think having a chubby baby is the cause of obesity. I have seen tons of so-called chubby babies in my life that turn into perfectly skinny teenagers and adults. phentermine adipex buy online Spokane It is accurate that the market is full of diet plan dietary supplements of low quality, which are ineffective but lastly there is a diet plan supplement accessible that is not only effective but to prove that its not a scam and actually functions phen375 allows you to experience this wonder supplement and if you really feel it has didn't bring any change for your fat you are able to return it with in 45 days with the purchase and get your 100% cash back again. Phen375 offers with this root trigger and aims to make your metabolic process operate faster and burn up fat. All these ingredients have their personal specific functions some operate on suppressing the urge for urge for food some help you in maintaining your power level, which results within the improve of metabolism level. I think the difference lies in the parents as well as their eating habits. Obesity is not pre-determined by your weight by the age of two. If it was, the diet industry wouldn't be a million dollar industry and you sure wouldn't ever have success at diets.
