Husband Has Poor Hygiene
  
Tell him to wash himself more often! Brush his teeth. Change his clothes. Why live with a dirty slob????


Did Jesus Have Money
  
Jesus did have money and the bible is very clear on that. The money was given to Him by many people because Jesus was fully man and that is how God provides for men that are in full-time ministry who cannot hold a full-time job and a full-time ministry effectively at once. Luke 8:3 Says that many provided for Him out of their means.

Also God provides for us by giving us the opportunity to work to get the provision. The birds of the air that He feeds didn't just get the food dropped into their mouths, they had to go out and find it. The Bible is also very clear that it is not only OK but it is very Biblical that if you are in full-time ministry, or the Lord gives you a vision for something that would advance the kingdom you should ask....


Divorce Deceiving Husband
  
Seek counseling first. The fact that he lied to you about her means that he could be lying to you about other things as well. Is he showing repentance? Is he seeking honesty in every area of his life? Is he willing to go to counseling with you? What do you need to be able to trust him? Will he seek to give that to you? I was in a similar situation. I am divorcing him because he is not repentant and became abusive when I asked for the truth the he didn't want to give it to me. God will guide you, as you seek what will honor Him. Separating to seek clarity could also be an option, especially if he is not seeking help. I doubt that that is the only lie he has told you.


My Husband And I Fight
  
A lot of these responses are very unfair. This person is looking for help, not criticism. Also, running away to pray? If she's Christian and has been praying, clearly that's not magically solving all her problems. If you want to keep your marriage, you two both need to be on the same page about changing how you discuss things. Maybe he will be willing if he knows it is for your son. Soon - and even now - your son will understand when you're fighting and it will impact him. You can make a change. It might have to start with you. Maybe pray to God to give you the strength to debate with your husband in a different way - even when he reverts to yelling. If you're consistent, he may change, too. Be strong. Good luck.


Do You Hate Liars
  
The guy I like lied to me about liking me, saying "I like you" and "I want you" then got suprised when I got upset he asked out my friend


UPC And Christian Equally Yoked
  
This is actually to the Moderator- How does believing in the oneness make UPC a Cult?? I do not understand how that makes us a "cult". Anyone that is UPC and been baptisted in Jesus Name and received the gift of the Holy Ghost knows 100% that it is not in fact a cult. The the young lady that I'm sure has either married or not- yes it would be unevenly yoked because your basic beliefs are different. One of you would have to give up your beliefs to attend Church together. There would be conflict about it. SO whatever choice you made I hope that it was the right one.


Should I Support Depressed Husband
  
I am in exactly the same position my husband is depressed about how things have turned out for him. I have finally persuaded him to get counselling but he's giving up on his business 3 years short of retirement i am expected to be the main breadwinner and i find it very stressful. Should you continue to support?Well i guess you married for better or worse on the other hand the depressed spouse needs to get help for themselves. If they refuse to get treatment i think there would come a point where you would have to walk away. Its just too difficult to deal with and however much you love someone they must move toward their own healing. Seek help from your church network they can be a great support to you


Who is Joyce Meyer?
  
It's amazing to me how quick people are to point fingers and judge, even though as Christians we have been very specifically told not to. Joyce Meyer has a beautiful, Spirit-filled ministry that has been making an impact on Christian's lives for years. Anger, bitterness and a haughty, judgmental spirit are certainly not fruits of the Spirit. We are all part of the body of Christ and maybe you can do things and reach people she can cannot. Maybe I can do things and reach people you cannot, and maybe Joyce can do things and reach people neither of us ever could. The hands do not and can not do what the ears do... and so on through-out the whole body. So instead of spewing poison, we should offer our prayers for her.


Can Ladies Wear Pants
  
Reference to how men and women should dress is primarily under the Mosaic Law. Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. Jesus said in Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. My suggestion: pray, find a great concordance and research it. Believing Christians are justified by their faith in Jesus Christ not by the law.


Theophostic Healing Ministry
  
I know several individuals who believe they have recieved healing & are free but are still bound by depression, anxiety, & fear. I have looked into it, though many scriptures are used, I don't see it as being biblical. No where in the bible does Jesus or any of His disciples ever use this type of deliverance/healing method. Just as we see in the old testament where the magicians were able to duplicate SOME of the signs and wonders that Moses performed before Pharoah, satan can still do the same today. The difference is that when the Son sets you free, you are free indeed! Spend time in the Word & seeking His face. Healing will come. I know from experience!


Under A Controlling Ministry
  
Just go to God in prayer about your situation and what's on your heart (He already knows everything but will not lend guidance unless you ask Him for it) and do as He leads. If you follow the path He's leading you on it doesn't matter what anyone else has to say or think about it.


Exceptions For Divorce
  
Having heard pastors preach on this I can explain the messages they give and I believe. Yes, adultery is the first exception, but abandonment is another and, although this isn't specifically addressed and opinions vary on it, I believe abuse is a valid exception as well. Abuse violates a basic teaching of God; "do unto others..." I don't believe
(after praying for divine guidance to the truth) that God would expect one of His children to remain in an abusive situation.


Roles Of Women In Church
  
I've asked my preacher about this and it was explained to me that this passage means women should not hold authority positions in the church (pastor, deacon, etc.). Women can be Sunday School teachers, nursery workers, etc., just not part of the "executive staff."


Is Killing In A War Wrong
  
Abortion entails taking of an INNOCENT human life. No innocent life is being taken in Iraq (at least not intentionally by us-unfortunately what the military calls collateral damage happens). What's going on Iraq is self- and national defense.


Pastor Refused Me In Church
  
For everything there is a time and a season. There may not have been enough time in the service for you to give your testimony and I am sure you will be given another opportunity.


Unmarried Couples Serve In Church
  
Um, Moderator, maybe your two word answer needs a little more explanation (though it WAS seriously direct)?:) Church leaders (deacons and pastors alike) are to be above reproach. An unmarried couple living together is anything BUT above reproach; they're in direct violation of God's Word and have no place in a church's leadership.


Billy Graham Largest Evangelist
  
Yes, Billy Graham has helped to do this (remember, God's the One in charge), but never forget that Billy Graham is just a man and messes up, too. He was on Larry King Live recently and said (on national television no less) that he's no longer sure he believes that Jesus is the only way to Heaven. This goes directly against everything the Bible teaches.


Do You Dress Up For Church
  
I have a question then . . . where did "Sunday Best" come from, and why did people used to do it all the time? It seems vanity seriously applies to our society this day and age, not back years ago, so I don't know if that makes any sense to me.
I know what matters is what's in your heart and not what you have on, but I have to be honest . . . sometimes I get really annoyed when I see an usher at our church dressed in a t-shirt, jeans, and flip flops.
