Why should a Christian worry about worldly things. Read the Word of God.
---Never_Went on 2/15/08


Never_went,I just wanted to encourage "you" to seek God in all that you do. I stress the "you" because what God has for "you" is for "you". What Bill Gates and Michael Dell has is for them. God has given "you" certain gifts and talents that He desires to mature within you. He has a plan to lead you and guide you to the place of maturity. In the meantime we must seek out God's sucess and stear clear of the worlds. Seek ye first the kingdom of God and pray.

If it hadn't been for my urologist looking at my CT Scan closer. I wouldn't be here now. He is the one that found out that my right kidney had shut down. God also gives knowlege to such people. I don't want a doctor that will say, "I think I know how to do this". I don't want one to just think they can do it, I want them to know that they can. Going to physicans is not a sin. and I did get anointed and prayed for soon after I found this out.

No, I just admire those that are smart such as Bill Gates, Michael Dell, etc. These guys were smart enough not to have to attend college.
---Never_Went on 4/2/07


** Bill Gates was a college dropout. Are you guys smarter or richer than him?**

NeverWent, do I detect a strain of jealousy and envy of those who have better educations than you do in your postings?

NeverWent, when you or a family member gets sick, do you simply pray and read the Bible at it, or do you go to a physician?
---Jack on 4/1/07


**Ever heard of pray and faith Jack and Madison. If you lack these, of course you can believe in the world or a doctor for your answers.**

As I questioned earlier, do you do without worldly things such as a car, nice house, and job?

You clearly don't deny yourself wordly things like a computer and modem, on which you fritter away time that you could spend on prayer.
---Jack on 4/1/07


Never went...did that computer you're using fall out of your bible or from the heavens?
CERTAINLY we go to God first, HE may send us to a Dr., or may suggest we WORK to support our families with a home, food, clothes etc. Its having faith to know when we hear God's voice leading us. HE gave us common sense as well, you might try using it!
WENT
---NVBarbara on 4/1/07


I wonder who designed the computer that Never Went uses, or built the plane he flies in, or the road systym that brings him his food and post, or the fabrics his clothes are made of, or the power stations which provide the electricity for his home?
I wonder if his mother had the benefit of a midwife?
---alan_of_UK on 4/1/07




NeverWent: I believe one of the writers of the gospels was a doctor. If he was good enough to be an apostle of Jesus, then I guess it is not a sin to become a doctor or go to one.

There are lots of options open to you besides an distance learning. You can attend college at night or during the hours you aren't working. There are grants and loans available that you could look into. There are many legitimate colleges which offer online degrees. However, most of them require at least some in-person education. Check out any college you might be thinking of attending.

** Someone who went to school and valued education enough to impart their "Worldy" knowledge on you.

Ignorance is not necessarily bliss.**

Right on, Madison! :-)
---Jack on 3/31/07


Never Went: I guess you don't use the services of a doctor or other professionals. They went and got those "Worldly" educations and all that. I suppose you did not get a high school diploma or elementary education either. Who taught you to read, write and use the computer? Someone who went to school and valued education enough to impart their "Worldy" knowledge on you.

Ignorance is not necessarily bliss.
---Madison1101 on 3/30/07


** Why should a Christian worry about worldly things. Read the Word of God.**

And I suppose you don't try to find a good job, good home in nice neighborhood, and decent car, now do you?

After all, those are worldly things Christians shouldn't worry about, right?

Like any college, you need to research the distance learning college. You need to know if it's accredited. What are the time restrictions, will it be recognized by the job force when you apply for a job. (You might call a few just to see,) investgate the teaching staff, etc. While there are lots of advantages on distance learning, you have to be disciplined in doing it. Just make sure you carefully check out the college.
---wivv on 3/30/07


Research them carefully. Many are not acknowledged in many fields. You can invest time and money, and employers question their validity. The discrimination is out there when you're at an actual job interview. The promoters of them will tell you otherwise.
