Wicked Church Members
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis

This is why we must practice grace sprinkled with salt. Christians love to spread truth from our understanding but it may not be what the person needs to here. Encouragement is more powerful than discipline.

Religion Of Apostle Paul
Yes Paul presents the religion of Christianity.

I do not understand your question?

Christian Activities In Church
---shira4368 on 4/21/14
Don't know the full details but we play pretty loud music and they were in the next room. Also it is probably in our contract that other companies have priorities over us, so we have to adapt to different situations.

Christian Activities In Church
Rita, it does make for some good conversations, We will actually pull some people from those events into church, a good evangelistic tool. We had an American Idol broadcast one year. We could not do music that week.

Christian Activities In Church
Gun show, car show, home improvement show, Honda goldwing show, BMW awards ceremony, oh wait we are the ones at the convention center. We will hopefully have a place of our own soon. yeah no more load out, and fully functional kids rooms (they need it the most).

Tithe Of Mint, Dill And Cummin

So how much do you give. Is this an argument to give more or less, sacrificially or tipping. The 10% is a good starting point for most people because it is both a sacrifice, commitment, and signficant.

Easter Sunday In Your Church
we believe they need to know (which is quite a lot !!)

I want you to expand what this a lot is?

Easter Sunday In Your Church
Unfortunitly yes, we call it CEO (Christmas and Easter only). However, it is also a great opportunity to present the gospel. Do not let an opportunity go to waste.

Why Are There Parables

cool math. but what is your point.

What Is True Religion
Lee I agree with your statement but I am going to add the reason behind religion whether it be to the, Roman/Greek, Norse, Egyptian gods or the baals in the OT. In religion, except christianity, you do not love the god/gods that you worship but you worship them such that the higher/powerful spiritual being will fight/prosper you in your activities. Worship is thus a bargining chip between you and the spiritual being. For example, every field in Israel had a statue of a baal thus you would give an offering such that you would have a good harvest. Micah 6, 6-8: But Christianity God just wants you and your love. Also Deut. 6,6

What Is A Covenant
he would never say that Jesus' death could have been be in vain.
---barb on 4/11/14

Paul is making proof by contradiction. Paul relys only of the blood of Jesus the true passover lamb.
For example I say "all birds are the same color" but you bring red cardinal and yellow canary thus you have disprooved my statement that birds come in only one color.
Paul does the same thing "If righteousness is through the Law (question proposed by Galatians), then Jesus would have died in vain. BUT Jesus did not die in vain so righteousness could not have come through the Law. I am not saying the Law is bad Romans Ch6. As far as being a Pharisee Paul renounced being a Pharisee in Philippians 3 because it does not work.

What Is A Covenant
//Paul a Pharisee doesn't know how the law works toward righteousness.//

It does not work to righteousness. It does work to santification (Paul agrees with this) and growing your walk with God but does not lead to righteousness (salvation).

What Is A Covenant
Barb - Gala 2:21 I do not nullify (disregard) the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose.

why do you find this shocking? Paul's message in this verse is that if we could follow the Law perfectly, grace would not be needed. He would not have come to die on a cross to redeem us. John 3:14,15. Which is the grace of God or the Gospel.

The verses you quote in 1st John is not about salvation but santification, living by the power of God (Spirit of God) to follow his commandments which proves our foundation as children of God, which is salvation. Paul agrees with this righteous living in Gal. 5 comparing/contrast living by the Spirit vs living by the flesh (sin nature).

My Boyfriend Just Died
grief is normal, but find someone to talk to face to face at your church

My Husband Was Offended
I would suggest that your husband find a away to forgive him. Forgiving that person will bring peace to you and your husband.
Matt. 5:9
Matt 6:14

Is Joel Osteen Biblical
"There are worse things than being joyful and encouraging" Mark Driscoll on Joel Osteen

I am glad Jesus was encouraging John 10:10. I like Driscoll's sound doctrine, however sometimes I feel depressed after listening to him preach but it just goes to show how much God saved me from myself which is what Joel Osteen's message is about. The freedom and power God gives us to tackle and be triumphant sons/daughters of God.

Do Weak Christians Judge
Was Paul weak in I Cor 5?
---Elder on 4/7/14

No, there is a difference between speaking truth in love, Paul who called all the christians saints but need correction 1 Cor 1:2.
Those that judge someone for personal gain like the Pharisee "God, I am glad I am not like this tax collection..."

Why Are There Parables
Parables also given statements context and a visual picture that words just cannot produce.
For example, Jesus could have said "God fights and knows you like you are the only one." Which is true
Or he could say "God is like a shepard who leaves 99 sheep to go after the missing 1 sheep." The image of a good shepard qualities of love, care, ownership, give context to the truth Jesus was proclaiming.

Is Church Membership Needed
Absolutly important.
Church membership is a committment of service and dedication to the success of that body of believers. Having a "regular attendee" mentality says what can this church do for me, I was guilty of this. Having a membership says what can I lay down my life for the success of this church. I disagree many times (not with doctrine but application) with my church about the direction we need to go. However, I see great fruit coming from my church and have a desire to see that fruit multiply so thus I am a member. Attendees have rights, members have responsiblities.

How To Survive Rapture
"Great is thy faithfulness"

Psalm 16 - Preserve me, O God for in you I take refuge

Jeremiah 29

Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of your eye hide me in the shadow of your wings

Psalm 18:2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress...

I have survived for 30 years not because of my strength but because Malachi 3:6 For I the Lord do not change, therefore O children of Jacob are not consumed.

//How will you survive for seven years when you aren't Raptured?// I won't but He is strong and I am in Him.
