Husband Is Mean To My Kid
  
You ask your question then immediately ask Divorce? Because your son and husband are having a problem... how is this constructive in any way. Using a very secular term, he's negative, and then ask if you should get a divorce. usay your son acts as if he can't do anything right however, is he acting right? Is your Christian step day rebuking correcting, according to what the bible asks? Who cares how he feels, right? Maybe you need to stand by your man and look at perhaps he's having a positive influence in the outcome of whether his actions and attitude are right before God. Did it cross your mind that maybe the "negativity" is actually the discipline of a father explained in Hebrews ch. 12?


Not Good For A Man To Be Alone
  
I can tell you that the standard "Christian" response is going to be "all you need is a solid relationship with the Lord to be happy" but that is not true. GOD said :It is not good for man to be alone. If all we needed was a "vertical" relationship the Lord would not have created Eve for Adam. That is the standard religious copout that people give because they don't want to be honest and say that sometimes things dont work out the way or in the timeing that we would like.My advice would be to stay close to God and try to meet some people, sometimes God expects us to make an effort in this. After all, God cant steer a ship that's not moving. Dont be afraid to date, just DONT compromise on your Christian stance.


Marriage Was A Mistake
  
I'm confused? He loves you, adores you, provides for you, and from the sound of it, asks nothing in return? And the problem is?... I looked at another response, think about it, if a man who is all the above is not enough for you, what do you seek? Younger, abusive, deceitful, uncaring??


Laying On Hands With Demons
  
Hi,

I have been involved in the demonic deliverance ministry for many years and can most assuredly guarantee you that the 'oppression' of demons can certainly occur from the laying on of hands. My mother when she was pregnant with the twins had a different doctor than normal do a final scan after which one of the twins immediately went into breach position. Found out later the doctor was an abortionist.


Who is Myles Munroe?
  
The point of his message is that we cannot sit idle and wait for God to move. We must do what God asks and wants us to do.
The second point is that we do not understand how a true Kingdom works, and he shows us how a Kingdom works since this is how the Spirit world is set up.
The third point about permission and God not being able to work on this world without us is evident in the scriptures. It is not that God does not have the ability, but rather that God set up Laws when He created this world that would force interaction with His creation in order for Him to move in this physical realm. And He will not break His own Laws just like he will not break His own Covenant with us.


My Girlfriend Isn't A Virgin
  
I can't tell you how much I feel your pain. There are some truths you MUST remember every day.
1. All sin is ultimately against God.
2. Sin is not simply what we do, but what we are.
3. Your sin debt to God is infinitely beyond what any person "owes" you (Matthew 18)
Forgiveness hurts. It recognizes the hideousness of sin, and assumes the consequences of that sin.
Don't give up the fight. I am also young, but I know a man in this situation who has been married for 15+ years and it still bothers him.
If you marry this girl, your marriage will be a vivid picure of the gospel every day. It hurts more than you can imagine, but it is beautiful.
I 100% endorse the book When Sinners Say "I Do" by Dave Harvey.


Pay Off Debts Or Pay Tithes
  
Defaulting on debt brings occasion for God to be defamed. But do not rob God to pay for your consumption. If you are in excessive debt you are likely in a position of spending more than you make, which will always end in trouble. Make the sacrifices necessary to give to God as well as make payments on your debt. Learning to live within your means will bring blessing to your life financially and spiritually.


Are Some Sports Unchristian
  
#1 Interesting question. At the heart of every sporting evant is competition, so the true question is: Is competition a Christian attitude?


Today's Best Church Leadership
  
The same person that has been doing the 'calling out' for the past 2000 years, The Holy Spirit.


How To Be Obedient
  
Present yourself a living sacrafice. Put to death the deeds of the flesh. Pick up your cross daily. Submit to the Holy Spirit.


Is Jerusalem An Important City
  
I believe the New Jarusalem will be the greatest city the world has ever seen. Do not love the things of this world, they will pass away.


Does God Recognise My Marriage
  
1Cr 7:10 But to the married I give instructions, not I, but the Lord, that the wife should not leave her husband 1Cr 7:11(but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband should not divorce his wife. 1Cr 7:12 But to the rest I say, not the Lord, that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he must not divorce her.


Why Are Some Pastors Lazy
  
It's true that the majority of pastors have very little accountability in their work week, so this makes personal discipline and work ethic a must.
But for those complaining, so much more goes on behind the scenes than people realize.
In addition to keeping office hours, 4-5/7 weeknights are taken up with church work/visitation etc. The pastor is on call 24 hours a day, and is the one to 'work out' any and all problems.
I just shake my head at the armchair quarterbacks who think they can do a better job. Surrender then and do it! We are at a shortage as it is!
By the way, I get 2 Sundays off a year, and preach 4 times a week the other 50. I'm not complaining, I love what I do, I just wish other people would get a clue.


What Country Are You From
  
Born in Alberta, and now reside in Nova Scotia, Canada. Lovely place.


Witnesses Don't Believe Trinity
  
Each person will choose to believe whatever they desire. There is, however, only one truth. If you do not submit to The Holy Spirit, Christ the Son and God the Father and you choose to believe something that is in conflict with His word than He will be the judge of that. It is not the responsibility of the Christian to brow beat people into understanding. Understanding is only given through the Spirit it is His job to convict.


Faithful Christians Are Attacked
  
The missing key to healing is unforgiveness.
Unforgiveness and bitterness will bring literal deterioriation to your bones and body, the bible says so. Bones will rot from the inside out, literally, from unforgiveness.

Show me a bitter, unforgiving iconoclast and I'll show you someone that has trouble all around them.

Iconoclast gone wrong. Doing the devil's accusing of the brethern and calling it God's work.

Ever notice how rotten you feel when you read too many exposes that go for dirt they can dig up on someone and call it just the facts? Read too many of them and you feel as if you need to take a bath. It's dirty work. But it rubs back off them, too.

Unforgiveness stops healing.


Faithful Christians Are Attacked
  
Writing long, drawn out exposes on everyone you consider to be a non-Christian, false teacher, false prophet may have it's place...but it takes a toll on the one writing them.

Especially when the writing is filled with bitterness. It comes through, loud and clear. There's also something amiss about needing that kind of negative attention.

There's nothing that edifies or exhorts.
Like I've said, read too much of it and it makes me feel sick at heart.


Being the critic of others as a life's work, I don't really think it's a work that pleases God. He alone is the Righteous Judge, and people aren't that qualified.


What Is Reprobate Mind
  
That's a farse. There is no such thing as predestination, or predestined to be a reprobate.

If you consider yourself reprobate, that would be of your own decision to be one.
If you enjoy the idea of being a reprobate, it's doubtful that you have actually become one.

Blogging about Christianity doesn't make one a Christian and thinking you might be too far gone for God is false humility and error.


Prophet Divinator Differences
  
The "prophet" here uses bible codes and other occultic divining tools for their prophecies. That is witchcraft.
That's a prophet of divination, a false prophet.

God's prophets do not require any kind of a tool, herescope or sign to give a prophecy.

They are led of the Holy Spirit. They can hear God's voice without any form of witchcraft. They also know when someone is lying through their teeth. They can recognize one person trying to be all things to all people and getting it very, very wrong.

A doubleminded false prophet, taking all sides of the debate will receive nothing from the Lord.
