Is Hypnosis For Christians Bad
  
There are Christian Psychotherapists who love the Lord and and treat people using a biblicle model of therapy.

Hypnosis is just altered states. If you have ever driven a car and "Lost" part of the trip, you were hypnotised. If you have ever "Zoned out" you were hypnotises.

Hypnosis in the hands of an ethical person can be healing. Why do you want an ethecial dr. or a Christian Dr? Why? You want an ethecial dr to do it for the same reason you want an ethical mechanic.

Good tools in the wrong hands can do harm.


I Have Lost Everything
  
Thank you for all of the great advice folks!It has been refreshing to get as much great input as I have...I have connected with a couple of believers that are able and willing to help me(Bruce and Elder)so I am again thanking you for your help and Susie I really find you to be a quite bitter,self righteous person and it is really people like you that turn people off from Christians.You claim to have discernment but that would be impossible as you don't know me or my situation.I really think that you need to seek discernment as to when to give advice and when to keep your self righteousness to your self. I thought I had a real problem but then I hear from someone like you that needs prayer and help way more that I do...

Susie...thank you for your touching story.Now I can see where your callousness comes from but where does the selfrighteousness come from?Thanks but no thanks for advice...not from you please!


I Have Lost Everything
  
Bruce...sorry I misinformed you I do not have an ID,I deleted it but I will get a new one and will get ahold of you,I have read your blog posts and see that you give very sound scriptual advice and would love to let you try and help...thanks!


I Have Lost Everything
  
Susie...thanks for your input but telling my situation is not making things up...I didn't lose my girlfriend I lost that part of income that counted and now doesn't.Don't be antagonistic,I am here with a valid problem and am looking for answers not cynical criticism.Thank you to all of the good advice I am getting here,I never dreamed I would be seeking help like this,I thought I had a handle on things but apparrently my faith wasn't as strong as I thought it was.I still am having a hard time with a church that will gladly accept my 10%,even when that 10% is from a reduced wage but when I turned to that church for help I got ignored...still confused,sorry.


I Have Lost Everything
  
One more thing Susie I used to say that it wouldn't matter what I lost I would still stay in faith...until I REALLY lost somethings.It is easy to be a christian when you don't get tested!


I Have Lost Everything
  
I guess I should clarify my situation...yes I did give myself completly to the Lord.I started going to a very good church and was tithing every week.I was serving whenever I was asked and doing daily devotions,bible reading and all things christian.The pastor of my church suggested my girlfriend and I not cohabitate so we moved apart.I shortly thereafter fell 20 feet at work and almost died.Being on workmans comp and making 2/3 of my wages made it so I could not afford to keep my house(remember the other paying partner left on advice of the pastor)I was still tithing and had to let my truck be repoed.When I asked my pastor for some help he told me "we are part of this world and have to expect these things",I will continue


I Have Lost Everything
  
To continue...Pastor Jeff did not even ask if I needed prayer.The point of all of this is that it seems that everything I have worked to have is now gone and here is the wierd part.I swore that I would not return to that church and quit doing devotions and reading my bible.I really miss that life but since stopping my money problems are getting better,my girlfriend and children are back in my life and my all around state of mind is better.It just strikes me that when doing things for God I was broken down to a state of wanting to kill myself because of these troubles and as soon as I stopped Calvary Chapel things started turning around...I miss God but I am scared that if I go back I will lose what little I have left.Satan or test from God?

HappyLDS>>>Problem is that your beliefs are not scriptual.This is a Christian and I am not Joel Osteen and I will definitivly say that yoy,as a mormon,are not a Christian.Your Jesus Christ is not the same one that I or any other Christian that reads and lives by the truths of the bibles Jesus is.You keep saying it is but I have enough knowledge of both the bible and what you believe to knom that is a lie.You are on a Christian site spreading lies to people and THAT is pushing your cult off on people.Call it what it is mormonism=cult!Doctrinally there are too many differences to mention in 125 words.That is why I talk of Jesus.That is enough to say you are not scriptual.

HappyLDS>>>What verse in the bible tells us about Gods lineage?Where does it tell of your existance in heaven prior to the creation?Stay brainwashed if youd like but don't try to push your cult off on others.We can read the truth for ourselves and "your" truth isn't in my bible or anyone elses,it only exists in that false teaching of the cult you belong to.

Eloy>>>you attempt to speak so eloquently and you try to come off as some knowledgeble teacher of the word of God.The problem is that with truly being a Christian you would be bearing GOOD fruit and with you Eloy that is not the case.Quit trying to think that knowing some scripture makes or qualifies you to be Christian.Satan himself knew and could quote scripture but just like him,I wouldn't take his advice and I surely wouldn't take it from you either.When you, Eloy, speak deciet spews from your mouth.Beware fellow posters,of this person ELOY!The Holy Spirit does not manifest himself through ELOY.Read his postings,Click on his name and you can read all of his unsound doctrine.Bye Eloy,I too will pray for you!

Pharisee>>>Thank you for the sound advice!You are mirroring the words of my pastors and I intend to do just that.Alot of the problem comes from within myself.It is my bitterness,my feelings of betrayal and abandonment.The Holy Spirit is alive and well in me and is helping me discern what is right in this situation and I will yeild to the promptings of Him.Again thanks and your prayers are appreciated and needed Becky.One more thing though...Am having surgery on my arm(work injury)tomorrow 10/24 in the A.M. ant prayers would be appreciated.I am really nervous so I need that peace that only comes from God.Thanks in advance...will post when I get out of hospital.

Eloy>>>I simply find it hard to believe that you are anything but a member of some cult or some other miscontrunement of the word of God.The truth does not come from your advice.It is always misquoted scripture,scripture taken out of context or some really way off doctrine that you toss around out here to people looking for sound spiritual advice.Gotta tell you Eloy,you are not the one to get it from and it doesn't matter whether you recieve what I say or not...it is fact and we all can see that.


Autistic or Asperger Christians
  
I have a 10 yr.old son that is high functioning autistic.He recently gave his heart to God and though he has trouble socializing with others,when he does it is to evangelize and that is so awesome.He was baptized recently,although he doesn't like to go under water.Our pastor did a wonderful job of getting it done.He loves to sing Christian songs and has gotten up in front of our entire congregation to share his special way of worshipping.It has brought myself and others in church to tears to see him pouring his love out to God in a way that is comfortable to him.Kudos to Pastor Jeff for letting Ronnie do what he loves to do!

More power to you HappyLDS.God bless you and yours.

Becky>>>Thanks for the advice.Jesus Christ is my first love and my pastoral team and I have talked alot and prayed alot and I have decided to put aside my feelings on her and try to see her as Christ does.You are right,if her motives are to annoy me,she will weary.I really hope and pray that she will stick around long enough to let the Holy Spirit work in her life.I have realized that this situation isn't about me,it just might be for her edification.I surely hope that for the sake of the kids she finds that serving God is what it is all about.

HappyLDS>>>How is it that Joseph Smith translated something that was proven in court, as fact, that he could't read or undestand the ancient language that the supposed plates were written in?It is hard to fathom someone translating something that they can't read into anything.That would be a great opportunity to try to fleece the people though especially seeing as there is no archialogical records from the state of New York supporting the finding of any plates.I suppose there were people who saw them ,though I am sure they were "mormons" out of convienence.

Eloy>>>are you still out here?Why is it that every post you are associated with you end up alienating the person seeking help or asking a reasonable question?I have followed your name around this blog and read your misquotations and scriptual references that are so out of context they make no sense.You should do yourself and everyone out here a favor and get yourself into a good bible study at a good bible based church and attend,take the cotton out of your ears,put it in your mouth,learn some solid doctrine and then come back and try to EDIFY someone with your reply.What cult did you learn your scripture from????


Are We In Tribulation
  
We are in a time of tribulation but if you are talking about the end times tribulation I say no because the church will be raptured before the great tribulation.The "church" is present in heaven when the seals are broken and the tribulation begins.It is spelled out pretty easily in the scriptures.
