What Is A Spook
  
Still no, Matthew 25:46, 2Corinthians 5:6-8, Hebrews 9:27.
The S.D.A. needs to incorporate 1Timothy 4:1-9 into their Bibles.
Shira 4368:
The DC-3 is my favorite aircraft, and the AC-47 gunship was called the spooky. Just thinking about Benghazi at the time.


Ryan Won The Debate
  
This is not a Christian question. But, a good one might have been - How does a predominantly "Christian" nation end up with four heathens as it^s major canidates for President.
p.s. Nurse Roberts: Christians usually support the party that most reflects their own viewpoint, while foolishly underestimating that which is contrary to Gods will. Both major parties are a pestilent curse on the land - only my opinion.


Do We Need To Tithe
  
No.
It was also used to support the poor, some of it was used to buy nice things for oneself, and part of it was spent on a party.
The Priests were cursed in Malachi because they short changed the Levites out of their share.
Yes, with a caveat, Many people do not hear the Lord very well when it comes to giving. Note: Jesus spent a great deal of time on this subject. Please see 1Corinthians chapter 2, (especially 16).


Work Your Way To Heavenh
  
Work - no.
Being good, yes - if your name is Jesus the Christ and you are a member of the Holy Trinity.
No - if you are a sinful human in need of salvation.
p.s. please read Romans chapter 3 at your leisure.


Enoch Walked With God
  
I dont know of any reputable Christians scholars that disagree with Enoch being taken alive to Heaven, and it is consistent in the Hebrew. Some denominations believe that this cant be true because it violates John 3:13. My opinion is that they misinterpret that verse. Genesis 5:24, Hebrews 11:5.


What Is A Spook
  
No!
I believe in the power of the AC 47 though.


Christians Boycott KFC Chickens
  
Some KFC restaurants buy chicken from Halal, or Kosher plants depending on what neighborhood they serve. Feel free to not support any business that you believe opposes your Christian beliefs. Please consider the following verses - that concern the obligation of the stronger and weaker brother to each other.
Romans 14:21, 1Corinthians chapter 8.


Did Jesus Have Money
  
Read Luke 8:1-3. At that time, the crowds would give money if they enjoyed a ministers message. And several wealthy supporters also gave as well. If you can live off the land, feel free to do so. Jesus spoke against the love of money, but recognized its usefullness.
Matthew 17:24-27, Luke 12:15, Ephesians 5:5, Colossians 3:5, 1Timothy 3:8, 6:9-10.


Victimized Class Of Americans
  
Cluny: that is a common human complaint in most cultures.
Proverbs 8:13, 16:2, 5, 18-19, Matthew 5:2-16, Romans chapter 12, Galatians 5:15-26, Philippians 2:1-21, James 3:14-18, 1Peter 5:5, 1John 2:15-16.


Moving Away From Christianity
  
Yes! A large number of Godly Christians blesses a society, while a large number of baby Christians, and false Christians brings ruin.
Matthew 7:15, 24:12, John 13:35, Acts 20:29-30, Romans 16:17, 2Corinthians 6:14-18, 11:1-14, Philippians 3:17, 2Timothy 3:1-13, Titus 1:10-16, 2Peter 2:1-3, Revelations 3:14-21.


How To Properly Tithe
  
Francis: the word tithe can certainly be used in its general sense to mean a payment of 10 percent, like a VAT tax. Abraham gave a tenth of the spoils that he captured to King Melchisedec, that which did not belong to Lot, or the King of Sodom. This was a middle eastern social custom, and does not directly correlate to the Hebrews tithe, or to God^s expectation that his children be generous.
Leviticus 27:30-32, 1Corinthians 16:2, 2Corinthians 9:7, Galatians 2:14, chapter 3, 5:18-25, Hebrews chapter 7.


Explain Matthew 10:29
  
Some small birds were suitable to be used by the very poor for some sacrifices. They were also eaten as a snack. And were kept as caged birds. Leviticus 14:4, Deuteronomy 22:6, Job 41:5.


Sow A Super Seed Doctrine
  
Did He / She, give you the - this is good ground - spiel. Ask them if they will give you a written guarantee for a 30-60-100 fold return. Mark 4:8, Luke 6:38.
p.s. the first parable concerns those who would reject, or accept the word. The second verse is in general, and does not guarantee a financial windfall.
2p.s. run away, look for a true Church.


How To Properly Tithe
  
Since tithing concerned certain domesticated clean animals, and most crops, and was done by Hebrews (only) within an Israel with a operating temple, one would need at least some sort of time machine.
If your question concerns giving, please read the following verses, and ask God for direction as to where, and whom, to give to.
Exodus 35:5..., 2Corinthians 9:6-8 (concerning impoverished brothers in Christ).


Life Before Creation
  
There is very little information on the joys of Heaven, or the horrors of Hell, as it does not directly affect our lives here. I dont believe that there is a particular verse(s) that speaks to this subject. Jeremiah 1:5 shows that God is omniscient.


Pastors Have Personal Info
  
The purpose of a Pastor is to provide nutricious food, and to protect the lambs. If a hired shepherd spent most of his time weighing sheep, the owner of the flock would be very right to be concerned about this mans intentions. Some leaders are improperly, and overly interested in the congregants lives. This leads to all kinds of sin. For example, interfering in others marriage relationship(s). A godly Bishop must respect proper Church discipline as it concerns sin, but neither has the time, nor the inclination to stick his nose in the things that dont concern him.
Matthew 7:15-23, Luke 12:45-48, John 10:12


Born Again Mormons
  
One could slowly read John 3:1-21 and see that Mormons are not born again. Or use several hundred more verses to disprove their theology. The so called Pastors violate Colossians 4:5-6 and 1Peter 3:15 at least.
p.s. giving a woman the title of Pastor (a male only position) is extremely problamatic at least, 1Corinthians 14:33-38, 1Timothy 2:9-15.


Positions Of Power In Heaven
  
Is this like the -where will I sit in the supper of the Lamb- question? No, that would be both prideful, and in contradiction to Heavens no sin policy. ...Depending on your eschatalogical view: Isaiah 60:19-22, 65:25, 2Peter 3:13, Revelations 21:27.
p.s. the Word of Faith movement misuses such verses as John 13:36-14:3, mansions being an apartment attached to a house, and the Dominionist movement pridefully misuses verses such as Matthew 19:30, when it was meant to produce humbleness.


Explain John 4:24
  
Juan 4:19-24. In context, since God is a Spirit, he is not subject to the limits of space. The Samaritan wanted to know if God was to be worshipped particularly in Gerizim, or in Jerusalem. To worship God in spirit and truth means to do it as: God pleases that it be done, to sincerely do so, and to do it (with the help of) under the Holy Spirits influence. Acts 7:48, 17:25.
