Psalm 94:22
  
Since the day we first heard of you we hve not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God that He will give you knowledge of His will through the wisdom and understanding the spirit gives so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord please in everyway: bearing fruit in all good work growing in the knowledge of God, strengthening in all powers of his glorious might so that we may have great endurance and patience, giving joyful thanks to the Father who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of his people the Kingdom of light. For he rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the so n He loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sin.


How To Properly Spank My Kids
  
Different children have different temperaments.


Spanking Young Teenage Girl
  
I agree with the general train of thought that at her age there be alternative discipline structures in place.

Alan_of_uk you said "there is no biblical defense of assault." Please expand on this.

There is a train of thought here that says that using physical force to discipline is wrong.

Disciplinary and arbitrary force are different. One demonstrates that if you break the rules then you will get a punishment. The other demonstrates that force is an appropriate method to achieve an end. Thus making force just as a means to achieve an end.


Greatest Need In People
  
Real community.

Other than behind a bottle or a screen where does community take place?


False Prophet & Anti-Christ
  
I doubt it.

Is the Anti-Christ a single individual. A spirit that those that are without Christs have or a spirit that resides in some people?


Why Christians Disagree
  
Often we make issues out things that are given their importance by Man and not God.

Different levels of faiths.

Different parts of the body have different functions so we will see things differently.

People are heavily influenced by their spiritual state when dealing with circumstances.

Even though we are saved we are still being sanctified. Even Paul had his thorn in his flesh.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Forgive me Athiest. I made the assumption that you deny a supernatual being, entity, element force... whatever. As is often the case people that describe themselves so find it highy offensive t0o be associated with a religion.

Atheism demonstrates all the elements of a religion.

p.s. hate an is unpopular term but please distinguish this between a dislike other than degree.

If you cannot accept something about yourself this is what I describe as self-hate.

p.s. Agnosticism is not Atheism.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Atheist - From your own mouth.

Darwin was a man. He was not a prophet or a "high priest". By your own measure Jesus was a man. Atheism is a religion.

Self-hating if you cannot accept it.


I Have Lost Everything
  
I too have experienced the same thing.

I am so tried. God gives me no comfort. It feels that I am faithful too Him but not vice-versa.

There are highs but I guess I am in a valley. I just want to know Gods presence and beable to lay things at His feet.

I can't do this on my strength. I don't know how to do it on His. It is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It feels like there is no hope only that of death.


Church Sells Music & Books
  
5 months into my walk I had dramas go down. For about 3 months things were pretty desperate.

I wanted to be friends with people. They were Godly people. But they didn't want anything to do with me.

When I wanted a friend. A popular thread of conversation was should I speed. They were not bad people in fact to me they seemed to bring glory to God. It just is hard to express without swearing - which would be appropriate the description - sometimes things are just really bad.


Why Do You Believe In Jesus
  
I believe in Jesus because I prayed and he answered me.


Confess Adultery To Husband
  
Confess.

Amen that you are repentant now ask for forgiveness.

Do not keep it in the dark for the devil to attack you.


Accept Overweight Christians
  
Why are you over weight?

1. Lack of self control
2. Gluttony - eat too much
3. Not healthy - not looking after your body

It is virtually always one of these or a mixture.

Ask yourself are you truly honouring God by not managing your weight.


USA Becoming Socialistic
  
Socialism.

In the U.S.A. there is an acceptance of homelessness.

There is no excuse for this period.

People do not have access to adequate health care.

If socialism addressed these things would it be such a bad thing?

If you disagree with socialism as I do with aspects then deal with poverty and the decadent extravagance in your society. Otherwise let Socialism have a crack at addressing it.

No excuse for a 100 million dollar handshake while people are living on the street.


Sugar Coat The Truth
  
May God give us knowledge of His will through the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.

Also do quarrel over disputable matters.

Also proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone in all wisdom so that everyone may be presented prefect before God.

Be as sly as snake and gentle as a dove.

But do not be a people pleaser.


Homeless People In The Park
  
I must ask Andy have you ever been addicted to anything?

It is true the first thing an addict must want to do is change.

They want to change usually - or at least do at times. The reason they don't is because it is very hard.

Let me say it again. The reason addicts do not change is because it is hard.

They usually are not sadistic. Virtually never sadistic. Even cutter, they do not enjoy pain but cutting is how they deal with their spiritual pain - cutting gives a distraction to this pain which is actually comforting in a sense. This is despair.

Often it said - well they've just gotta want to change. This is usually by people who do not have a clue of what it is like.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Kathr: I think he was saying that if there was a Big Bang then God caused it. Or rather God is the cause and creation the effect. If a phenomena such as the Big Bang or anything else was used in creation they are effects not causes. The Big Bang is an effect of the God and not a creator.


What If Big Bang Is True
  
Liam: I agree that science does not have a basis from the theory of evolution to attribute either choas or order to reality. Atheists often do this and assert it as scientific. This is very harmful to the study of reality.

Thought as science is the study of reality and thus God's creation we should be encouraging Christians to emmerse themselves it in to unveil glimpses of God's glory to us that are mind blowing but from His perspective just one possibly an infinite aspects of creation.

Katavasia: "**"IF" there was a "Big Bang", you can be assured that GOD caused it!!!!**" Exactly, couldn't have said it better.


Condemning Christians
  
Jude: 8-10 In the very same way, these dreamers pollute their own bodies, reject authority and slander celestial beings. But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not dare to bring a slanderous accusation against him, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"

Before I think that I was meaning to rebuke not convict.
