“Mike (from Tenth Avenue North) was given this razor by a fan that has been freed from cutting. 571 was the # of times she had listened to “You Are More” since she’d stopped cutting 5 weeks ago.”

Anonymous asked: So I read your paragraphs on cutting and my question is, is it really a sin? And do you honestly think that it is demonic?
Cutting we believe to be a demonic bondage. In Mark 5:5 there was a man who would cut himself with stones in Mark 5:8 Jesus cast out a legion of demonic spirits out of him and he was healed. Yes, we can accept that some problems are physically or psychologically based, but we also believe in demonic bondages as well.
For whether it’s a sin or not… I don’t know the mind of God but I do know that God is our shelter and our strength in every season. If you are dealing with self-harm I encourage you to open up your bible and read the book Psalms. This book is filled with songs/poetry of people crying out to God in times they feel they can’t go on anymore. It’s awesome stuff and helps me to push on through. God’s always there for you, He is never far. Call out to Him.
Cutting can make you feel better for a little bit but ultimately your harming yourself God your Father is surely looking down on you with love and compassion and feeling hurt that you would cause yourself this pain. I encourage you to talk to God, talk to him about what’s going on inside of you, ask for His help, wait for His answer, and trust Him to pull you through.
Psalm 7 which says: “O Lord my God, I take refuge in You; save and deliver me from all who persue me.” Psalm 18 says “The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock in whom I take refuge.” (v2)
Also, when we accept Christ into our life, the bible says that we have a new life in him. It means that the old life we had is long gone in the past and is not existant anymore (2 corinthians 5:17). This includes what people believe to be”physiological”. That’s why Jesus says, “take heart in me for i have overcome the world. john 16:33” Jesus has overcome it all, and in the end for His glory and fame to be seen in each person.
The reason that people don’t see themselves set completely free from these things are because they don’t surrender it all to Christ. It can also be because they don’t have enough faith that when Jesus dies, He did everything that needed to be done for them. It can even be due to listening the the voice of the accusers instead of God’s voice.
The truth is, God can and wants to set everyone free from self harm or whatever it may be that you’re going through in life. But He also wants you to have 110% unceasing faith in Him with no scent of any disbelief. he also wants you to desire to live a life of sacrifice and surrender to his will and his word.
so case and point. yes, i believe that self harm is a sin because the bible clearly states that when Jesus died on that cross, it was also for liberation from things like these. God wishes *no harm* for his people.
be blessed cool kid.
Anonymous asked: Hey awesome lovers of God! ^_^ So this has been bugging me for a while- should i tell my boyfriend of 2 years that i used to self harm? (Which Jesus literally freed me from heck yeah :D!) Anywho I'm so scared of how he'll react... he classifies it as "emo" and i don't think he'd understand :/ We both love God so much and i really believe He brought us together ^.^ <3 I just want to know when i can tell him because it eats me alive without him knowing :C Please pray God helps me with this ^^
That’s so rad that God freed you from self harm!!! ;o
Before you talk to your boyfriend, talk to God. Ask God for help say a prayer like this:
“God, I want to talk to my boyfriend about self-harm and about how you freed me from it. I want him to know how you’ve worked in life. God, I just really want him to understand, but I’m scarred. scarred of how he’ll react when I tell him. So, God, please help me.
Please, help me not to afraid to speak with him about it, give me the right words to say and please help him to be understanding & compassionate when I tell him. Let your glory shine through my testimony. God, please make it easy for me to say and if it’s possible let him initiate the converstaion. Thank you God! Amen.”
You can say that prayer or a similar prayer, Just what ever is in your heart, let God know and after that just trust in God and let him work!
I’m personally praying for you!! c:
I know everything is going to go right. <3
Anonymous asked: Hi. I'm a born again christian, been saved for 2 years now. I'm having such a hard time, and I'm scared for my life. I'm in the twelfth grade now, and I've been cutting, burning, pulling out my hair since grade eight. I go on the long spurts of manic depression and I'm terribly insecure. I know my family loves me but I crave the attention of others. I don't know what's wrong with me. I know all the truths of life but I just can't seem to grasp it. I don't wanna live defeated.
I want to start off first by saying that there is nothing is wrong with you. The bible tells us that our fight is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12). I want you to know that what you’re going through/have been going through is called spiritual warfare.The enemy (the devil) has a legal right to interfere in our lives (it’s something that God permits). It’s the enemy who is messing with you and he wants you to think that you will be defeated and you’re going to stay the way you for the rest of your life. This is not true! The devil is liar! The bible tells us that he is the father of lies (John 8:44).
The truth is that you don’t have to live the way you’re living, you don’t have to live defeated. Jesus came to conquer! And all our victories are because of Him. It is very important for you to begin reading your bible and knowing it like second nature. God left us His word for a reason and in it is everything we need to know to conquer through or Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
So, learn the word and use it, so you can be free and so those who are around you can be free as well. God is searching for people with courage to fight the good fight. So we can have victories. through Him.
God says “Call on me and I will respond” - Jeremiah 33:3
In order, for you to have God’s power in your life the first thing you need to do is confess to God one by one all of your sins, and if you have trouble remembering then ask God to help you to remember.
Anonymous asked: I've been a Christian for almost three years. I just cut myself and I don't really know why. Does God still love me? This is the second time I've done it.
God loves us no matter what c:
but please keep in mind that God also wants the best for us.

Anonymous asked: how do you feel about cutting. and are there bible versus that could help me not do it? because i really want to.
It honestly breaks my heart when someone tells me they turn to cutting in order to cure their hurt & pain. You see, Jesus suffered so that we wouldn’t have too. Jesus tell us to bring all our burdens to Him!
“Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.’” - Matthew 12:1
Jesus loves you very much! <3 & He doesn’t want you to suffer any longer. He is your cure for the pain & He’ll rid you of your hurt forever.
“The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.” - Psalm 9:9-10
“The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.” - Psalm 145: 18-19
“My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.” - Psalm 62:1-2
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” - Psalm 46:1-3
God loves you soo much & He’s crazy about you <3
it’s pretty bombtastic! ^u^
God bless yah! <3
Anonymous asked: I can't stop self-harming. I feel so worthless and terrible, and I pray but every time that depression comes back and tells me I'm undeserving. I feel so weak, but I want so badly to be close to God.
2 Cor 12:9 Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”
You can overcome anything in Christ.
Anonymous asked: Omg i never knew Cutting was demonic :/ wow, i'm learning more and more things its' scary lol,i am never cutting again, how stupid, and despite all my foolish ways God has always been there to lift out of the darkness into the light, and I love Him so much
The devil is the father of lies. His will was that you fall into deception.
Oh, and the Prophets of Baal cut themselves too. In that case it was their way of trying to be heard by their god.
Anyway, I’m glad you asked us and now know.
Anonymous asked: recently this year i cut myself for the first time, if u haven't heard about Demi Lovato and her cutting herself because of bi-polar, i thought it would be cool to do the same thing as her even though she went into rehab for it,i regret it,is this why demons were annoying me? is cutting evil :/
Self-injury of that nature definitely isn’t from God. Jesus even came across a demon possessed man who lived in a graveyard and cut himself.
So yeah, it’s probably related in your case; not saying you’re possessed but cutting is indeed demonic in many cases.
