The fastest way to get rid of Satan in Christianity

   Exorcising demons is not an easy matter for every church person as the body of Christ in facing various temptations that often come from the power of the devil. Now, we need to find out who the devil really is in the New Testament. The main word that is often used to refer to a demonic creature is "Demon", which is found 60 times in the history of Christianity. Other words are “unclean spirit or unclean spirit” which was found 24 times and the python spirit which was found once in Acts 16:16. There are two common ways that the meaning of the Bible refers to situations in which people exhibit some kind of demonic behavior. First, they are called "demonized". Second, they are thought to have demonic power, which leads many people astray. Bible verses about Jesus Christ being able to cast out demons, which you can do and apply as follows: 1. Mark 1:34 "" He healed many people who were sick with various diseases and drove out many demons; He did not allow t

Christian Bad Habits and How to Overcome Them

  Adventist Christians must see that bad habits have ultimately been a spiritual problem since postmodern times. We consider bad habits to be “sins” that often tempt us. The fact is that we are used to doing things that are wrong causing us to forget our responsibilities. On the contrary, it can make sin even worse. Questions that arise in our heads: "But I have already committed many sins ... what should I do?" The answer is if we have done wrong or have bad habits, then we have to confess our sins and then "God is faithful and just" will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all evil "(1 John 1: 9). Bad habits in daily life, bad habits of Christians, also occur in our lives which are often and deliberately done by us as Christians as follows:   Cursing the Sins of Others Often we are more observant of the mistakes of others than our own sins, thinking that their sins are bigger than ours. There are no minor or major sins, but they are hereditary sins according

Forgiveness in the Bible

  Forgiving people who have hostile or wronged us is one of the most difficult things God wants us to do. We must be grateful in the Bible that we as believers can get perfect forgiveness in Jesus Christ since He suffered on the cross, saying: "Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing" (Luke 23: 34) As for 10 things about "forgiving" in the Bible verse, what you can find out are as follows: 1. Matthew 6: 14-15 "Because if you forgive people's mistakes, your Father who is in Heaven will forgive you too. But if you do not forgive people, neither will your Father forgive your mistakes ”The verse does not say that if you do not want to forgive a brother or sister, then God will not be able to forgive as much in your Bible as possible. This means that if you don't want to forgive others, then you may not be saved 2. John 1: 9 `` If we confess our sins, then He is faithful and just, so that He will forgive all our sins and cleanse us

Characteristics of Christian Ethics in Everyday Life

 Christian ethics according to the Bible cannot be separated from Christian theology because it is based on the character and personality of God. Its task for Adventist Christians is to determine what ethics are true to the character of God and what ethics are inappropriate or incorrect. We know that God's ethical order is the only source of true and perhaps more real morality in human life. The eternal moral order is a character of Christ as a human being and an attribute of God Himself (2 Corinthians 4:18) which can be reflected in the church as the Body of Christ. As disciples of Christ who are blessed with the Word of God, we must obediently receive teachings about God's ethics. By having great grace in Christ, we can get great joy by doing the work given by God in accordance with the call to be true disciples of Christ (Ephesians 4: 1). This article discusses six characteristics or characteristics of Christian ethics according to the Bible, including:     Agreement is comm

Background of the Church Reformation in the 16th Century

 A denomination is a religious group that can be identified under one name, structure, and / or doctrine. There are many church denominations in the world. Have we ever thought why it has to be this much? Or why not only one church, no denomination? We are also not complicated in choosing a church and we can even reduce divisions because often the different denominations of the church make no unity even though one of the duties of the church is fellowship / diaconia, which means being united as the body of Christ. In fact, it is true that there is only one church, which was started 40 days after the resurrection of Jesus (if you remember, about the early church which was the result of Peter's ministry through his preaching).
