Spanking Teenage Boys
  
In the 60's my brothers and i got paddled on the bare butt for something serious and while it hurt--we never questioned it--It became less frequent as we got older but it still happened--We turned out fine--I just did not like paddling my boys so i quit earlier and they turned out fine--I think its the relationship a parent has with sons that counts if the relationship is good even a paddling won't hurt the basic dad/son relationship--just my experience


Babies Go To Heaven Or Hell
  
Babies who have died without knowing God go to purgatory, where they wait until the revelation to be with those who were righteous, this is Catholic doctrine for the past 900 years, at least that's how old the document was I read it in. This is not a place of pain but one without knowledge of God, until a baby is baptized this is the case.


Wife Gets Herself Pregnant
  
Thank you, all of you, for your comments

Personally, I have my doubt that she WILL actually do anything, for she has been saying far more than she has been doing

But I am deeply concerned about all this, and I want to thank all of you for being so supportive!


Wife Gets Herself Pregnant
  
Donna66: 'Whether the questioner takes his wife back or leaves her, is his personal'

Donna, that was the most helpful comment I have seen here - thanks so much

I also feel some guilt for NOT being able to have children..... I had some suspicions earlier, but did not go out to make sure before marrying

But I am not sure - I do not think I have any right to leave her (no fornication), but I am not happy with the situation


Do You Enjoy Being A Christian
  
The hardships of my personal life leave no question in my mind as to whether or not I enjoy being a Christian in these unGodly days.
My faith and personal relationship with Jesus Christ is sometimes all that allows me to make it through my days & maintain my sanity!
I take the greatest pleasure in my worship of my Savior at every opportunity availed.
God hasn't let go of me yet, I'll hang on to Him.
After all He is the only sure fire thing.. I am convinced of in my life.


Is Satan The Ruler Of Earth
  
Jesus did not change anything at the cross. He came to fullfill.We are no longer UNDER the law but we are still IN the law.
Blood is still the requirement for sin. prasie GOD! Jesus came to fullfill that requirement!


Beginner Bible Reader
  
Barbra,
Before we can know what Christ has done for us, we need to know why he needed to come in the first place. Thats why the law is so important, it convicts us. We can not be pardoned until we have been convicted. The old testament is important for its reflection of just how in need of a savior we are. GOD made a beginning,perhaps thats where we should start. Without a firm grasp of who GOD is and what he made, our understanding of his power and greatness can never fully develope.


What Is Heaven Like
  
You should read "90 minutes in heaven" It may be the closest thing to an answer a living person can give, seeing he was there.


Want To Throw My Son Out
  
I'm a husband in a similar situation. My son is constantly disrespectful & mean to me and the family. I've prayed, loved, yelled, reasoned, & disciplined. I have concluded that no amount of Christ or love for God I have can make him change. His attitude / behavior have negative impact in our household. If he was 18, I'd drop him off at the bus stop. I see that my wife is in the middle and I agree with the writers who advocate marriage over the parent/child relationship. I am not married to my children (including my biological children) I am married to my wife and THAT earthly relationship should outweigh blood "the two shall become one." Any devotion (besides Christ) that supersedes marriage is adultery and idolatry.

Does God Keep His Promises
  
Most of these responses are just quoting Bible verses, which is fine, but I would like to hear some real personal stories of how God kept a promise in someone's life.


Why Was The Apocrypha Removed
  
As a KJV enthusiast, I own a copy of the KJV apocrypha. Whether or not it is canonical, I don't know. The New Testament writers do quote from it, though. My real beef is with scriptures added and removed in modern translations.


Jesus Returns For Us
  
Well I am concerned by the ignorance concerning this subject, Paul writing to the church at Thessalonica.Wants them to not be uninformed about this subject.1 Thess 4 verse 16 to 18.It is very obvious that there is a snatching up of the dead in Christ and the living in Christ prior to the tribulation. This is now the coming to save Israel as at that time he comes to the Mt of olives. This like in John 14 v 1 to 3 is not about Israel but about the church. Please readers understand that the promises that God made to Israel have no applaction to the church and when we as a church are looking for Him to return to this earth we will looking for the Anti Chrsit to appear first and then we know that the Lord will return 7 years later.

Are Fallen Angels Demons
  
This is a tough question. I have learned a few things that make me think fallen angels are not demons. One is that demons posses people in the bible and when they are caste out they traffic in dry places and look for another human to occupy. Angels are never seen as disembodied spirits looking to possess humans anywhere in scripture, they have the ability to appear as men and disappear, they occupy regional territories according to the book of Daniel and probably most of all they are never referred to as demons or unclean spirits. Demons are most likely what the book of Enoch refers to them as and that is the disembodied offspring of angels with women.


Trick Or Treat On Halloween
  
I don't have kids, but Halloween has become my favorite holiday! Does Halloween honor Satan? Sure. However, on Halloween, Satan sends the lost TO MY FRONT DOOR, and I give them candy and gospel tracts! How much easier can it be to give a gospel tract to someone when they come to your front door and hold out their hand? I say, take this Satanic holiday and use it to advantage, to get the gospel of Jesus Christ out to people!


Have You Witnessed Recently
  
This month, I have left gospel tracts on store shelves, gas pumps, public restrooms, and phone booths. I also use my blog and Facebook for Internet Evangelism. However, this month I have not witnessed to anyone face-to-face.

During Halloween, I handed out tracts and candy. A couple years ago, a friend and I went to malls, football games, movie theater, door-to-door, festivals and a Jehovah's Witness Convention to present the gospel and hand out tracts. During a 5-hour drive, I stopped at every Welcome Center and handed out or placed tracts, and witnessed to (and prayed with) one guy. I want to start doing these types of things again.


Most Effective Evangelism Methods
  
Many years ago, I used to lead people in the sinner's prayer. But I have seen false converts come from this, so I no longer do that, because they are not saved by 'magic words.' Now I use Ray Comfort's 'Way of the Master' method. I ask them "Would you consider yourself a good person?" and lead them through a few of the Ten Commandments to illustrate to them WHY they are a sinner (and why they need to repent), because I have talked to people who think they are not sinners, and who have said that God will let them into Heaven even if they are not a Christian (I tell them a good judge would not just excuse a criminal).


How Do Jews Atone For Sins
  
1. kathr4453-"Does God hear the prayers of sinners APART from Jesus Christ? I say NO!"

Well G-d says that one who turns his ear from listening to the Law, that his prayer is an abomination(prov.28:9). Obviously, one who is obedient to the Law, his prayer is heard.

"Judaism is a religion...but not according to Righteousness. and that righteousness is in Christ only"

So according to you, all the "OT Saints" would not be "saved" since their faith wasn't in "jesus name" even though Heb.11 shows that their faith was approved through their actions. I suggest a careful, slow reading of the chapter to see it, since it's to many to list. (cont'd)
