This was mentioned today in Church and I never heard this before so I am curious.

Are the mountains of Ararat and Mountains of Sinai the same place?

Mt Ararat in eastern Turkey, the Biblical landing place of Noah's ark. Mount Sinai is in in the Sinai peninsula, the peak where Moses received the Ten Commandments. Mt. Sinai is also known as Mt. Horeb.

There is actually quite a distance between them. The mountains of Ararat, or Urartu as they are also known, is a ridge of mountains that is located in Turkey. One of those mountains is also called Ararat. Mount Sinai is located in the southern end of the Sinai Peninsula.

There is a Bible software that you can get on the internet that is completely free that is called e-Sword that is produced by Rick Meyers. There are numerous versions of the Bible available for downloading and using in this Bible software as well as commentaries, dictionaries and maps. The maps are numerous. Some of these maps show the Middle East as it is today and many of them show it as it was during Biblical times. They make for a wonderful study aid to add to your Bible studies.

Thank you so much for helping me.  One more question?  Do you think I should point this out to my Pastor or just leave this one alone?

It was probably an honest mistake on his part and one that most likely was not a major part of any point that he was trying to make.

This is true,  the message was absolutely toe stomping today.  He used Noah as an example of a godly man who found favor in God's eye.  Said this didn't mean Noah didn't sin but he repented of his sin.  The world at the time had other people who thought (maybe others who believed in God) its okay to sin a little bit without repentance.  He message was about repenting of our sins and rededicating our lives to God. 

I struggle so bad with worry, negative thoughs and sometimes jealously when I see families of our church get together and I'm left out.  ( lol I am married with four children hubby doesn't go) so its not always easy for me to just "hang" out lol. 

I want to show my family, friend and co-workers that I have Christ in my life and I want them to see a happier me, a more postive me.  and I dont' want them to see the worrying me or the side of me that gets her feelings hurt all the time.  Grrrrrrrrrrr I don't if I'm explaining this the right way.  Anyway this was my prayer for forgiveness and repented but I still struggled tonight with worry and things.

Worry, negative thoughts, paranoia, feeling left out ... all these and much more are normal human feelings. They are ones that we must learn to turn over to God. To let Him take care of. Frequently these feelings may actually cause others to avoid us and then this just adds to more of those same feelings.

We must put our trust in Him. Trusting that He will take care of us in all things, being concerned with what God says and not with what others say or do.
