Tithe To A Family Member
  
We are the church! Is okay to give to the poor instead of the church as long as you do it with a happy heart.

Acts 17:24-25 ESV
The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by man, nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all mankind life and breath and everything

Revelation 21:3 ESV
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.


Why Evolution Is A Myth
  
There is a very serious question for those who try to reconcile Christian beliefs with evolution. If man's sin was the reason death entered the world (as Romans 5 says), then how can death have been in the world before man was created (as evolution requires)?


Harsh Posts On The Blogs
  
Harsh posts come from various root causes. What you think is harsh may be someone who is bold enough to speak the truth in love. People these days are slow to hear the truth, and are not getting sound doctrine from the Churches. Also many become knowledgeable, which leads to pride. So you have a combination of those that know, and are giving good answers that are not what people want to hear, and poeople that either give a good or bad, answer but because of love growing cold they can't answer in a way that is loving and shows concern. We need to discern what the difference is between condemning, and correction.


Fate Of Isolated People Groups
  
That is a long complicated study. Here are some verses that might help you:

Romans 7:9 KJV For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

Romans 2:14 KJV For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

Romans 2:15 KJV Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another,)


Does Obedience Bring Blessings
  
Absolutely. It's actually a blessing in itself to be free from the bondage of sin, and have peace that passes understanding. We experience God's love, and experience loving others when we are "doers not just hearers of the word". And our obedience leads us to a clean consciences which is an assurance of our salvation. Read 2 Peter 1 about making our calling and election sure. That is a blessing.


Should I Approve An Atheist
  
Don't let her manipulate you. She has rejected the one you love more than anyone else including your daughter. But don't pressure her either. Christ is coming between you and her and that's what Jesus would predict.

Matthew 10:37 KJV He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.


Are Taser Weapons Biblical
  
You have a right to defend yourself. You also have a right to die for your enemies. It's your choice. It seems reasonable to me to carry a weapon, but it's hard to preach the Gospel of love while carrying a weapon.


How To Explain Creationism
  
Romans 1 says they are without excuse. So keep in mind that convincing people that God exists won't make them Christians. The demons know there is 1 God and still shudder.
Prove evolution is false by proving that there is something beyond this meaningless world in the way you live, and love. Evolution still requires complex mechanisms like DNA to exist. How could life evolve into life without DNA that is alredy there. Remember that God called you to faith, not your own knowledge and wisdom. You saw the light in the Bible, not in science books.


Turn Tables Over At Church
  
If people started setting up a swapmeet in your yard, wouldn't you physically start removing items. He only made a whip to get rid of the animals. He had a zeal for his house. Do you have a zeal for your house, both physical and the temple of God in you?
Get physical and start turning over the tables in your life, because your body is God's temple, and God will destroy the temple that is defiled.


Christian Preterists Post Trib
  
There is a danger in fishing for people with similar views to you. It can appeal to the sense of pride in you that others approve. Don't seek the approval of men. Yes I lean towards post-trib, I have a very simple "read as you go" approach to understanding scripture, and as I read it it sounds very much like the son of perdition will be revealed before the rapture according to 2 Thessalonians 2.
Also some of the Daniel prophecy seems to be revealed around AD 70, but the coming of Christ evidently has not happened yet.


Explain The Great Delusion
  
The strong delusion is not about UFO's. It's about people loving pleasure more than the truth. It's God's way of seperating the sheep from the goats. The false doctrines, false teachers, false Christs(Christians) are growing in number. Very few Christians are discerning about false doctrine and just gobble up lies, and are blown away by every wind of doctrine. I think we are observing this in these times. They want thier ears ticked by false teachers who widen the path so they can include more false Christians in the churches. Paid Pastors need the money to keep coming in.


Social Drinking Christians OK
  
Consider the results of everything you do. All (many) things are lawfull, but not all things are expedient. When you participate in drinking parties, people are getting drunk, and fornicating. And when you drink it may appear to them that you condone it, also other Christians who have a weakness for alcohol abuse may see you doing that and justify thier abusive drinking. Drinking is a serious problem. If you drink, I believe you are basically becoming a different person than God intented you to be. It cuts you off from God and other Christians.


Who is Hank Hanegraaff?
  
How do I answer an atheist that says that the Psalms were lifted directly from the Canaanite and Egyptian religious texts?


Is Pretending Considered Lying
  
Ok sorry this is really confusing. I have known my pastor for a lot of years and I have a lot of stuoid questions about God and stuff that i should have known and I put up the front of knowing. I know I should have just asked, but instead I made a fake email and emailed him afew times asking those questions. was that lying? Pretending I was someone else?


What Is Considered Stealing
  
Is taking a quarter you find on the street stealing?


What Is Considered Stealing
  
Do you know what's weird? i wrote like a wicked long question and only the first bit got published. Anyway, what I meant was like what if you pick up like a gum wrapper from someone elses house and pocket it? Or like your friends packet of developed pictures gets delivered while you are their and you take one that is a totally ugly one of you? i mean are those stealing? or is it only stealing if you are like affecting them?


Is Christmas Birth Of Jesus
  
Ok, i'm relatively sure about this. In December, there was a big Greek holiday that celebrated a greek god and involved lots of games and parties and most likely drinking too. SO when the Christians were converting Greeks, many Greeks were disappointed to see this holiday go, so the new Christians decided to celebrate the birth of Christ in December just because. Why not?


Is Heaven An Actual Place
  
does it really matter as long as we will be eternally with our savior?


Bible Say About Hypnosis
  
In hypnosis there is no yielding yourself to anyone else. You are always in control. Imagine you have gone on a wilderness trip of some kind and you have a guide. The guide tells you where to go, what rock to step on as you are crossing a stream, where to camp. However, you can simply say no. You do not have to do what he instructs. That being said, there's nothing about hypnosis that goes against the bible. Hypnosis is simply a natural trance that we go into multiple times a day. We were designed to do it. I would encourage you to look up a man named Reverend C. Scot Giles. He has been a hypnotist for many years. You may not be of the same denomination, but I'm very sure he could help allay any of your fears about hypnosis.
