Married With No License
  
Romans 13:1-7
1Peter 2:17


Are There Three Earth Ages
  
"Scripture does say God created water "the earth was formed out of water and through water" 2 Peter 3:5." What 2 Peter 3:5 actually says is "For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:" This verse is not referencing a creation, but rather a destruction. As far as Isaiah 45:7 is concerned, the direct statement of the Father holds no ambiguity, therefore needs no interpretation, and can not be explained away. The same Hebrew word for darkness, [choshek], is used in both Gen.1:2 and Isa. 45:7 and has the same meaning.


Who Has Been Slain In The Spirit
  
I was slain in a Spirit at a charismatic Church, it was like a million volts of supernatural power came over me and knocked me down,.. its real, but its a demonic power and not the Holy Spirit. A sign points to something, this sign or wonder that occured to me simply pointed me towards Pentecostal/Charismatic theology which is loaded with damnable heresies like when they say only those who speak in tongues have been baptised by the Holy Spirit, when in truth you cannot be a christian apart from being baptised in the Holy Ghost. Paul says "not all speak in tongues do they? of course not" also many other errors such as salvation by works or human effort is taught i was recommended Benny Hinn books after being slain in this false spiri


Heaven Hell Suicide
  
"A person is not saved by his own actions. Everyone is saved by grace through faith. And all human beings fail."
---Mark_V. on 1/30/14 Amen. My sentiments exactly.


Beginning Of New Testament
  
"Where does the New Testament (covenant) really begin?"
The New Testament began with the death of Jesus. Scripturally when Father made a covenant, it was usually ratified with blood and/or the death of a sacrifice. The only exception I can think of was the covenant made with Noah.
However, "where there is a testament, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is in force [only] after men are dead, since it has no power at all while the testator lives." Hbr 9:16,17 In other words "The will goes into effect only after the person's death. While the person who made it is still alive, the will cannot be put into effect." NLT


I Want To Stop The Adultery
  
Indeed you are correct. What God has put together let no man tear apart. There is a reason that God said this and it sounds like you just found it out.

In fact there is always a reason that God tells us these things, and because of this, we should trust his teachings and just do them without question.

I am sorry for what you have done, but if there is anyone who can put together what is broken it is God himself. Have faith in that, for what is impossible for the Lord. I think you know the answer.

So repent, and from now on let your foundation be the teaching of God and not of man. Do his will always and never your own.

I will pray for you.


Do You Judge Others
  
Well, when I do judge, I do it by God's standards and not my own. I also do it with the idea in mind that I only wish to use the Word of God for correction, if christen, or to help lead others to God, if non christen. This I believe is righteous in the sight of the Lord.


Tithe Or Pay Bills
  
Jesus never collected the tithe, Paul never collected tithes, the early church never collected tithe, Abraham gave all the spoils,prophets Malachi refers to the priets who were subjected to the law of Moses..so pls pay ur bills..but have the spirit of giving.


Is Christ God - Continued
  
Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to His temple, [as Jesus] and there was a man sent from God, whose name [was] John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through Him might believe. "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shined in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand it.God is light, He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.


Love Your Enemies
  
"How is this consistent with Jesus' instruction to "Love your enemies"?"
Very much so. He loved them enough to spare them the anguish of being forced to live an eternity under the only reign that will exist, yet one that they have no desire for, and have totally rejected.


What Is A Spirit
  
Leon, to share a few.
"Spirit, generally speaking, is Life's Force," Gen 2:7>Job 33:4>Psa 146:4>Ecc 3:21>Luke 8:52,54,55>Jhn 19:30
" Inspiration or ones attitude in life." 1Pe 3:4>>Eph 4:23>Rom 8:6>Pro 16:18>Jhn 6:63
The Spirit is The source, sustainer and foundation of Life. Gen 2:7>Ecc 12:7> 1Cr 15:45>Jhn 6:63
"A spirit is an inspiring messenger or influence." Eph 2:2>Luk 9:55>1Cr 2:12>Psa 104:4


TBN Ministry Said No Money
  
I too, have been dismayed at preachers who subtily imply that salvation can be bought. I also know that running a television program isn't cheap. I don't mind supporting a program/ministry that works hard to share the unadulterated gospel. It's one way that I can be a part of sharing the good news as all Christians are called to do. However...too many T.V. preachers/ministries do all BUT share the gospel. If they spent more time telling people about Jesus than they do asking for money...I'd be more apt to support them.


What Is The Curse Of Ham
  
"What is the curse of Ham?" There was none
The curse was intended for Canaan (Gen 9:25) Noah placed this so called curse on Canaan because he was a constant reminder to him, first of his sons disrespect and betrayal, and of his shame in allowing it to happen due to his lack of restraint and the resulting drunkenness. Ham uncovered his father's nakedness by laying sexually with his father's wife (Lev 20:11), and Canaan was the result. That is the only way for Canaan to have been the brother of Shem and Japheth. Noah could not curse Ham because man can not curse those that the Father has blessed, (Num 23:20) And Ham had been blessed. (Gen 9:1) Noah was unjustified in cursing Canaan because Canaan had done no wrong.


Avoiding Abominations
  
AG The abominations listed in those chapters would be a non issue for those who are given to follow Christ, for they have the influence, power and guidance of His indwelling presence. That which is an abomination to Him, would innately -spiritually speaking- be an abomination to them.
The only one that may cause the overly zealous and immature a little difficulty, at least until they come to truly recognize and embrace their place in Him, is the abomination of "sowing 'discord' (strife or contention) among the brethren". Proverbs 6:19


Divorce My Lazy Husband
  
No Sister,you do not have to suffer. You can take the wide road. You were given a free will just like him,but,as my pastor would say "watch out for the buts" God may be holding him back because God knew what you would do. I truly believe behind every successfull man is really great God fearing woman. I'll bet if you start looking for the good things about him. You might find a whole lot of that too! I wish you the both God's best.


Why Do You Go To Church
  
As an individual,I go to church because it is suppose to be an ark of safety. The fact is, we don't go to the church:We are the church. We go to different church ministries to get ministered to. To be built up and encouraged. The body of Christ is the church and Jesus is the head of the body. So for those of you that are not in fellowship with other believers. They need you as much as you need them. To draw strenght from one another.The important thing is that you are apart of the body of Christ.He is coming for His body(the church)


My Wife Had Affair With Pastor
  
Well my friend and brother in the Lord. Look on the bright side. You only have 487 more times to forgive her. Im not saying that it will be easy but these are the kinds of challenges that make us who we are. You can't move on until you get this settled in your heart and mind. So I reccomend going around it for now and in time you will be able to make some sence of it all. Its like driving down the highway of life and the car in front of you is just crawling along. You can't move on until you get around this slow poke. No sence in getting upset. Just get around them. The safe way and then you can move on. Kindness in this will give you great strength.


No Answer To My Prayer
  
yes, I stand in agreement w/ the last post, as well as the others. I've had a prayer take 12yrs to get answered. I've had others take an hour or 2. All in HIS good timing, not ours.

I can't post a link here, but if you see my email address.. check out my blog and do a search for: How to get answered prayers

I would like to quit but like I say once a month the urge just overpowers me.I have tried acupunture hypnosis herbal remedies and other medicine
I am a Christian but feel ashamed when this happens.Maybe it's Jesus' way to keep me humble because everybody always says I am such a strong Christian If they only knew
