What Is The Gift Of Discernment
  
Sometimes when I am around people, I automatically get a headache and paranoia. Like to day I was with a friend and she went into the store and while she was in there, I all of a sudden had an overwhelming feeling of fear for my life! This has happened before on several occasions.


Husband Is Controlling
  
I think some of you have no idea what it's like to be in a controlling relationship. My mom has spent the last 30+ yrs praying and putting her trust in God. She's been submissive, she's tried never arguing, and she still gets treated like dirt. She believes with all her heart that God has a reason for the pain and grief of her life, and that is the only thing that sustains her.


I Need A Christian Friend
  
I would really like some Christian's to talk to and maybe hang out with!!


Did I Curse God
  
I did something very similar only worse. In a blinding fit of rage over something very stupid I cursed at God and blamed him for all the wrong in the world. This was many years ago and it has huanted me everyday since. I have begged for forgivness many times and I even cut myself in an attemped to offer blood for forgivness. I hate myself for it and I am certian God will send me to Hell, but I don't blame him.


Family Member Is An Alcoholic
  
My Mom, Aunt, Uncle and Cousin are all alcoholics. I hate watching them get worse and worse. I was thinking of trying to get them full-tim into a clinic. My aunt has just recently come into major trouble because she doesn't have a job and the man supporting her and her kids just died. Also, my cousin(her daughter) just found out she was 6 months pregnant a month ago. My aunt is burying herself in alcohol and not coming up with a plan to take care of her family.It goes against every bone in my body to not do anything and watch.I pray and pray...I'm scared to death and my Mom is dealing with her own alcoholism and not helping..she's in denial. I'm so overwhelmed...I wish there was someone going through this like me so they could help, and talk.


Gestational Surrogacy Biblical
  
"Your husband's seed impregnating some other woman other than yourself is not righteousness. Why is not adoption a good option for you? For the command is, "Be a father to the fatherless."
---Eloy on 1/24/10


its not righteous? how's that? if you're not in good health, adoption is not always allowed. i don't mean to sound rude, but are you being a father to the fatherless as well, Eloy?


What Is Grace, Faith & Works
  
See this is what confuses me and always has.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior are we guaranteed eternal life from that very moment on or is it something that we have to earn by obedience to God through the Holy Spirit.

Seems for the second to be true we're in the same boat as we were before Christ died.

I look at stories of the Old Testament and how people say Christ is our passover just like when people of Egypt smeared blood over their doorways so the angel of death wouldnt kill their firstborn during Gods judgement against pharaoh. Ive been told its similiar to that. People believed Gods promise and took measure to prevent death from coming to them by seeking protection under the blood.

Is it not the same?


A Spirit Of Oppression
  
I know the posts are from a while back but I found them relevant to the times. I myself have experienced the great shadow as I call it that is attached to people. It is overwhelming and really hard to deal with when the people are those in your every day life. For those not in my everyday life I avoid them. For people(blood relatives, etc) that I HAVE to deal with I surround myself with light and listen with my heart to hear what God wants me to and the rest goes out the window... it is still difficult at times, but this is something that is working for me.


Not Good For A Man To Be Alone
  
Everything happens in God's time not ours, have faith that there is a reason for things being as they are. Better to be alone then surrounded and lonely. Take time to get to know yourself and what you really want, be specific in prayer and thank God for the loved ones in your life. Then one day without even a thought it will happen. We are all connected and never alone, only darkness leads us to believe that we are. God is always with you.


Can Christians Be Soldiers
  
You cannot follow Jesus and generals. Jesus does not have a country. I believe soldiers need to repent of their military service. If Jesus asked for forgiveness for soldiers, they were obviously sinning at the time. With ninety seven percent of all the killing in Iraq being civilian, American soldiers are killing people as innocent as christ every day.
Military chaplains make people twice as fit for hell as they are themselves.
Without repentance, there are not soldiers in heaven.


In-Laws Trying To Destroy Marriage
  
EPH 6:12 -- "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

I am there with you... In a similar situation. My inlaws and husband are not saved and he seems blinded to their assaults on me personally and towards our marriage. He has sided with them even in-front of them. I claim victory from the LORD over our marriages and over my husband's salvation. The compass the we choose to use must be GOD. If their's is not, we cannot reason with them or call them to repent... We must fight the one's using them as tools to destroy what God has put together.

God Bless.Luke 20:17-19


I Hate My Husband
  
Ralph and Graham - Maybe the problem lies with the men and not with the women. Have you ever thought of that? Obviously if so many women, including myself, have problems with their husbands, the husbands might just be doing something wrong.


Is Harold Camping Correct
  
Augustine,

There are a couple of issues that need to be addressed. First and foremost the infalibility of God's word. Do you take God at His word? Because according to Jesus: "But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone." Mark 13:32 According to Jesus, Harold Camping does not know the day of Christ return, and will never know it.

If you believe that May 21st of 2011 is the day you will be raptured, I sincerly encourage you to go read your bible. Stop letting other people tell you their own personal interpretation. The Bible says that scripture is not up for personal translation, but that scripture interprets scripture.


Equally Yoked In The Bible
  
The verse that it is in is 2nd Cor. 6:14


We Have Slept Together
  
Confusion about boyfriend being a Christian? His track record has some holes. Dig your way out, repent, and God will bring you the "one". It will take much prayer for yourself and reading the Word. I waited many years, but fellowship with the Lord made them the best years of my life.


Does The Bible Contradict Itself
  
My question is about Proverbs 26:4-5. Verse 4 says - Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you will be like him yourself. Verse 5 says - Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes. Unless my eyes are deceiving me, I'm being told not to answer a fool according to his folly and then immediately TO answer him according to his folly. This seems to me a contradiction.


Right Person To Marry
  
Amen, Ralph. If you take an opinion poll with your friends, family, etc., you will have so many different answers. God is not the author of confusion. If you're confused now, there's an indicator. Seek God with your whole heart. He'll tell you.


Non-Maturing Christians Possible
  
When the Lord brings the Christian to their full spiritual stature, maturity, adulthood, the eyes of our heart are open to understand the call to adult son/daughtership. The completeness of the personality of Christ is more meaningful than yourself.

God wants us to have more than head knowledge, He wants our hearts.
God calls us to maturity, to walk in the fullness of God in this life.
