Tattoos Are For Pagan
  
I think tatoos are up to the individual's
Faith. If God tells you they are wrong then teach your children appropriately. If God doesn't tell you anything then go with it. I personally for myself don't believe in tatoos and told my kids they could have one after they moved out. My daughter had her nose pierced she works for billy Graham in Thai. Her husband has tatoos all up his arms. They are bringing people to Christ. I personally think God is more interested in bringing men to Christ then whether they wear a tatoo or not.


Singles Are Left Out
  
I think the church, regardless of denomination, has this belief that married couples are more stable, and it's like this holy grail we're supposed to shoot for. Paul said it was better to be single. We can focus on the Lord. That should be celebrated, not looked down upon. In the county I live in, there are 100s of churches. I did a google search and only 3 had actual ministries for singles. If any church as one at all, they should be commended for trying. It's better to meet a mate at your church. Like any group, it will be the reflection of its leaders. If it's just a meeting market, that's kind of sad. However, it's at least more than most. Singles are a growing number in America and the churches are NOT meeting their needs.


Pray Out Loud Or Unspoken
  
Remember, Satan is Prince of the Air. He can't read our minds. If you want to put him in his place, speak the word of God with boldness. Silent prayers aren't as effective. Jesus could've always just laid hands to heal, but He didn't. He said things. He commanded. And he prayed aloud. I don't think there are any examples of silent prayers in the Bible. Pray in private, so you can speak the word of God over yourself without fear of condemnation or judgment.


Born Again Mormons
  
I was raised A/G and my best friend in high school was Mormon. We were roommates my freshman year of college. My study of Mormonism and determination to "save" her destroyed our friendship. There are some truly hideous things in Mormonism. However, my friend loved Jesus. He was her savior. Would he condemn her to hell because she believed all this extra stuff? I could never say that. I think it's some of the leaders and men (many things are hidden from the women) that will be held accountable for some of their beliefs. I think only God truly knows the heart of a person, so yes, Mormons can be born again.


Can You Lose Salvation
  
We are saved by grace. We are saved by Jesus' sacrifice, not what we can do. We are imperfect people and cannot live a life free of sin. The old testament describes a sacrifice that was made for the unknown sin. Jesus was that sacrifice too. We don't know what we do... even today. God made provision. If you are truly saved, your name is written on the HAND OF GOD. What is there cannot be unwritten.


Advice On Strong Willed Child
  
Don't engage with him in a power struggle, as that is what he is wanting to do to assert his "control". If he keeps up this behavior I would tell him that a phone is a privlege and not a right. If he want to be able to have these adult luxuries than he needs to behave like one. Tell him, calmly but firmly, that the next time he wants to break the rules, misbehave etc. his phone will be confiscated and the service turned off. If he wants a phone at that point he will need to pay for it himself, and if he doesn't have the money then he will need to get a job. He is looking for inconsistancy and seeing if you and your husband are on the same page. Good luck!


Sinful To Be Cremated Christian
  
First of all the Bible says Who so ever believes in the Lord and calls upon his name shall be saved. Secondly, God made us from dust and to dust we will return. Lastly, when Jesus rose from the dead His body rose because He wanted to prove that He was in fact the Son of God.
To be a true Christian you are entitled to your beliefs on cremation or burial just don't forget.....do not judge others, but pray for one another and love one another. For God loves all of us.


Divorce A Drug Addict
  
I say, attend every Al-Anon meeting you can, and don't make any drastic decisions about divorce for at least 6 months. Alcoholism/Addiction is a family disease and effects all members of the family. It stands to reason, then, that when we work on ourselves, the whole family situation can improve for the better. Give yourself some time to breathe, work on yourself, reconnect with God, detach with love from the problems brought into your life from the alcoholic/addict. You didn't cause his addiction, you can't control it, and you can't cure it. His salvation is God's responsibility. As for the eventual decision to divorce or not - it is yours alone to make. When you are in a healthier place. Peace to you.


Break Off An Engagement
  
Holly- I was in your shoes 3 years ago almost exactly (except we hadn't had relations). I was engaged to the man of my dreams, we had the whole wedding planned, and 3 months before it he got cold feet. I was beyond devastated. His reasoning was 'he wasn't sure if God wanted him to go through with it'

4 months later he came back to me seeking reconcilliation begging to be together. All I wanted was him and to make things right, and to realize the dream of our lives together, and to stop my pain.


Demon Will Not Leave Me
  
Wow what a horrible experience for you! I feel for you, sincerely.
I am not trying to dismiss your experience, however there is a state we are all in while we are in our normal dream state. It's sort of a paralysis (which stops us from acting out our dreams and such).
Sometimes people wake up before the paralysis wears off. Often times it can be while you are in a half dream state. This inability to move causes many people to have "NIGHT TERRORS". A lot of folks mistakenly believe this normal physical condition is an alien or demon experience.
I've experienced it myself.
Could that be a possibility for you?
Whatever the circumstance, I am shooting up a prayer for you. God bless you.


Would You Date A Blind Man
  
I would date a blind man if his personality and mine were compabadble. There is something more to romance and love than what is visual.


Report Miracle Healing
  
I had a severe seizure disorder for 20 years. They stopped the same month that I got married to my husband. My doctors told my parents before I was even born, because I was so sick. I had other health issues on top of the seizures. I am thankful to God that I am healed of the seizures.


Benny Hinn And RT Kendall
  
There is a difference between judging and pointing out heresy.The Word tells us not to judge, for God is the only one with authority to judge, but pointing out heresy is another thing entirely! Remember Jesus in the Temple throwing tables over in righteous anger (John 2:14-17)due to the heresy He was witnessing? If these preachers ARE false prophets then we must call them out on it, but first we must be VERY cautious (so pray for discernment and Gods Truth that will then be confirmed w/ scripture) that we are correct- lest we partake in the spreading of poison/gossip which God abhors.

Not Good Enough To Be A Christian
  
and Robin...Just say Yes and accept Jesus as your personal savior. He is the only way that you can overcome the guilt of feeling like a hypocrite.


King James Only Christian
  
I want to say kudos to whomever submitted this question. I was raised in a King James only church/home. I remember growing up how frustrated I became with personal devotion. I couldn't understand what they were saying enough to get much out of it. As an adult, I now rely on several versions for my own personal study and reflection. I believe that God wants us to understand him above all else so that we will know what his love letter to us really says!


Are Instruments In Church Evil
  
This is a very interesting topic for myself as well. My fiance was raised in a religion that doesn't support music in worship, either. I just don't understand how you can justify scriptures such as the psalms and not believe in church music! My fiance's church states that using music glorifies the person who's playing the instrument and not God. Well, it had to be God who gave that person their talent. What's up with that?
