Going To Purgatory
  
Hebrews 12:4-11 shows how we now can get our Heavenly Father's correction. So, purgatory can be a doctrine of procrastination to what will not happen, instead of getting the real correction which we can get now. Because God is able to do the real correction we need, in this life.

We need to actively seek God, then, for His correction. And >

"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation" (in Philippians 2:14-16) . . .

not later after we die, but right "in the midst of" this selfish world's "crooked and perverse generation".

With God, this is possible now (c:


Is Christmas Pagan
  
Using a so-called pagan day for a good purpose is not pagan.

But it is pagan to claim any day to belong to Satan and his kingdom!!!!

Because every day belongs to Jesus, for His purpose, because Jesus Christ is the Lord of all.

And what was meant for evil God is able to use for His good, like He did with the situation of Joseph > Genesis 37-50.

So, our attention needs to be with God and all He is doing.

"Test all things, hold fast what is good." (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

Test each thing for the good which God can do with it.


Married Male Friends
  
If men you share with are good examples of how to relate and be faithful, then they already are your friends.

And the Bible says,

"And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good?" (1 Peter 3:13)

So, it is not ok to stay hurt. Jesus is able to heal us of any past or present ways that we have been hurt or could be hurt.

"'Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:29)


Bring Glory To God
  
Yes, I need to not be looking down on other people. Jesus is not conceited and He is so superior to all of us. Jesus on the cross had hope for any evil person, at all. So, we need to be all-loving and not in conceit picking and choosing whom we love and have hope for >

Love "hopes all things" (in 1 Corinthians 13:7).

"swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath, for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God" (in James 1:19-20).

"He can have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray, since he himself is also subject to weakness." (Hebrews 5:2)


Judge Roy Moore Apologies
  
I think people jumping to conclusions might need to apologize to themselves and get with God so they don't do that.

For all I know, she could have done a forgery, but this does not automatically mean he is not guilty of things she has accused him of doing. Plus, one forgery does not mean he is innocent of other wrong things.

And God has given us the "do not bear false witness" command because God knows humans do on purpose falsely accuse people. So, for all I know, any number of women could be lying.

I am curious if there is evidence that a number of them have ever been at the same time and place where accused men have been.

Also, one might accuse truly, but others could be jumping on the band wagon.


Is Senator Warren A Native
  
If I use the name of a legitimate Native American in a way which has a disrespectful meaning, this could be creating a new way of discrimination, plus demeaning a woman by using her name in a poor way.

But lying is nothing new.

But each individual is unique, so I might do better to take the adventure of facing the challenge to have each person speak for one's own self about why each one does what he or she does.

It is too lazy to try to speak for everyone in just one way, I would say (c:

But a simple answer might be that ones for Donald will ignore his wrongs, while they criticize the wrongs of the opposition. But I think this would be lazy, versus making the effort to be really honest.


Non Pentecostal Girlfriend Pregnan
  
Jesus is the One who cares about you . . . more than you care about yourself.

So, have you trusted in Christ for salvation and God's forgiveness? God can give you honesty for what to do about this.

And nobody is a nobody to Jesus! So, Jesus does care also about your girlfriend and the unborn baby.

So, trust God to do what is caring with you >

"casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

And share this with people who know right from wrong and who have compassion and hope for people who have done what is wrong. Jesus died with hope for any wrong person to become adopted to be family with God and with us (c:


Pentecostal Believer Marriages
  
It is good to make sure with God.

There are wrong ideas which are said to be Pentecostal, and wrong non-Pentecostal ideas.

So, how do your ideas effect you and how you live? Are you helping one another to get more real with God and submit to Him in His peace? Colossians 3:15

And are you helping one another to learn how to relate in God's all-loving love? Ephesians 4:2, Ephesians 4:31-5:2

Depend on God to have you share with Christians who are mature and successful in their marriages so you can feed on how they relate and have brought up children. And mature Christians, like this, might not have favoritism for any particular group of Pentecostal or non-Pentecostal people.

But how to they compare with Jesus?


Was Hitler A Socialist
  
What is generally accepted as fact about Adolf supports, in my opinion, that he was a narcissist.

The narcissist can adopt and use what people esteem . . . so the narcissist can look superior, and gain control for what he or she wants to use people to get.

So, in case Adolf were to express certain socialist ideas, this might not have meant he really believed in them, but may be he was trying to gain power and favor which he felt could come with those ideas.

For a while, wasn't he trying to get support with Russia? And Russia was somehow socialist and a big power. So, Adolf could have been trying to collect power and favor, by adopting Russia, though he might not have any ideology except him, himself, and he.


Right Versus Left
  
Monk Brendan, you said something like that leftist people can be doing more for needy people.

Is this because they love people, or can it be because a number of leftist people love votes? . . . though not all, I would say.

And I have offered how certain very evil people will be chameleons . . . using a group for their predating and using people for what they want.

Therefore, I would get to know each member of a group and let each one have an opportunity to speak for oneself, and not assume I was being told the truth! (c:


Christ In You
  
They both mean we have Jesus in us as our new growing inner Person > Galatians 4:19. The spiritual reality is the same and deeper than what any words can explain, I think. So, I am not sure I could really tell you what the difference is but > I'll try >

We "in Christ" brings out how God has brought us out of sin, so now we are in the body of Jesus > 2 Corinthians 5:17.

"Christ in" us brings out how Jesus is growing in each of us as our new inner Person.

Either term, though, fits with how every child of God is "one spirit with Him" (1 Corinthians 6:17). Either "in", then means we are "with" Jesus!!! (c:


Right Versus Left
  
Each person can speak for oneself, about what he or she means by being "left" or "right".

In any case, I need to first be an example of admitting to how I can be wrong, but also get real correction > Hebrews 12:4-11.

I am wrong, by welcoming opportunities to look down on others who are exposed for things they have done. I need to first respond with compassion of caring prayer with hope for any wrong person . . . while, like I say, I am busy with being an example of honesty by pointing out how I can be wrong, and getting real correction of God > Hebrews 12:4-11.


Was Hitler A Socialist
  
Well, if he was a socialist, I would say a lot of socialists are not interested in the methods he used to get what he believed in.

If you are a socialist . . .

therefore, what are you doing?

I think there is Biblical socialism, which means we share what we have with one another, to keep it very simple. And we do this in a family caring and sharing way, in God's love. And, but, we do this freely and cheerfully, not being forced or threatened or pressured by others who do this in God's way.


Eastern Orthodoxy Roman Catholic
  
It would need to be because God has you to do so. Because we are not God to know if claims of past historians are really the truth or merely what religious people in political power promoted while hushing out what the gentle and humble people of Jesus were doing.

Also, even before Jesus, there were wrong religious groups. So, claiming that a group has leaders going back to Jesus does not prove Jesus approved of them.

Jesus knows, Jesus is able to personally guide you (c: We are not God to know who each religious leader really is.

But God does provide us with examples to take care of us > 1 Timothy 3:1-10, Hebrews 13:17. And God knows whom He approves (c:


We Need A Church
  
If you set up standards which humans can imitate, they can fool you into supposing they are Christian. Psychopaths have become pastors and priests of people who evaluate by superficial standards which evil men can fake. So, make sure with God, please.

And we need our examples who meet the standards which our Apostle Paul has given us >

1 Timothy 3:1-10

Note how these standards include things which are true of the person's character, which only God can know but is able to share with us so we recognize and honor His example leaders > 1 Peter 5:3, Hebrews 13:17.


Force Us To Be Saved
  
ds, you ask if I think it is a freedom to have free will, I think you mean.

Well, God is the only One who is truly free.

Our own character can be our worst dictator.

So, we need Jesus to make us free from our own self's human free will which is so limited to our own nature which is not loving.

"'Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.'" (Matthew 11:29)

Jesus gives us rest, but in our human unrest we can choose poorly, limited by our anxiety and dominating and dictatorial passions for pleasures.

So, real freedom is in how God has us loving (c:


Preterists and Futurists
  
I think Revelation has things about what was going on, at the time, plus very helpful and useful things for how to live, now. And it has prophecy. And the principles of how things work can be seen by reading the prophetic parts, and this is how now things can be working, also.

So, Cluny, I would say it is not all preterist or all futurist. And there is plenty which can help us, now.

And Isaiah 55:11 says God's word will do all which God pleases. So, it does not matter how anyone makes it look like we can't understand His word. God knows all He means and intends, and how He in us and our lives will do all He means (c:
