Ask God To Die
  
It is really easy to sit there and say how life is precious and wonderful but not everybody has that kind of life and asking god to die is the only way out some people have. I believe that it depends on the individual and that God judges based on that. Not everyone is met to live.


How To Love My Husband
  
I don't know the circumstances, but I do know that The Love Dare has helped many, including myself. It gives a step by step process on how to love your spouse, and have a successful marriage in God's eyes.


Why Are Teens Cutting Themselves
  
Cutting has been in our culture for years and years and yes it does date back to Biblical times. Teens today are filled with emotional pain and self-injury is an unhealthy coping mechanism that takes the emotional pain away--or at least that is the lie that the teens believe--because it only comes back again and again and again. Its a slow yet self destructive cycle of abuse ---to themselves. Its eaiser to feel the outward pain then deal with their emotions
I will keep your daughter in prayer.
Keep strong in the Lord

Who Is The One True Church
  
The one true church is the Body of Christ, a body of believers that believe in and follow Jesus Christ as the Risen Savior and Lord of their lives. Denominations are made by man, but what joins us together is the confession of our mouths and belief in our hearts that Jesus Christ was crucified, died and buried, resurrected in 3 days and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God. He sent His Holy Spirit to empower believers in Jesus Christ to live a Christian life. So the one true church follows Jesus Christ, we may be separated by denominational names, but we follow one God.


Can Ladies Wear Pants
  
I have been in a church for 12 years that have preached dresses at all times. Many portray to be wearing dresses at all times but are seen outside the church in pants. What I have seen is the women who wear dresses become self-righteous. Duet.22:5 is often taken out of context. One should read the entire chapter. I believe too much emphasis is placed on works, rather than glorying in the cross in which Jesus fulfilled the law.


Called To Witness In Bars
  
I can only confess that I was a sinner. As such I wonder how much sooner I would've come to the Lord if some spirit filled person of faith had been bold enough to find me in the place I was at rather than me having to find them? Don't live in the church, BE THE CHURCH!!!


I Hate My Husband
  
My heart goes out to you. I am in the same situation. 16 years now and I don't know what to do either. Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde lives in my house. I'm not much help but I'll say a prayer for you. That's all I have to rely on. I'm 41 and lots of times I'm not ALLOWED to go to church. What do you do then?

May God watch over us and bless us both.


Hiding Length Of My Affair
  
I just looked back at some of your responses to other people, and on 6/16/07 you told someone to "repent of your adultry, it's not of God!" It seems you know the answers but can't apply them to your own situation. If you don't tell your husband the truth your relationship will never be able to heal because it will be built on lies. Jesus NEVER taught that it is okay to lie to anyone for anything. It's time to get real with yourself and your husband.


Salvation Or Baptism First
  
Emcee: I would be interested to know the scripture references you find to prove that Jesus needed salvation, and that Mary and John the baptist NEVER sinned. The only person who was without sin was Jesus. As for your statement about Bibical history, How about the day of pentecost when three thousand were saved THEN baptized? Acts 2:41. Simon believed (1st) and was baptized (2nd)Acts 8:12-13. The Ethiopian eunuch believed with all his heart (1st) and then was allowed to be baptized (2nd) Acts 8:26-37.


Salvation Or Baptism First
  
Clearly, salvation comes before baptism. Baptism represents the dying to sin, being buried & rising again to show others the decision you have made to accept Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism is not required as a part of salvation remember the thief on the cross beside Jesus, and Jesus told him "this day you will be with me in paradise" getting down off the cross and being baptized was not a requirement but rather is a commandment of God for an outward show of an inner decision.


Someone Commits Suicide
  
The answer to this is very simple, if that person had accepted Christ as their Savior they will go to Heaven. If they had not, they will not go to Heaven. No matter what a person does, they can not lose their salvation - they are eternally secure - it's a done deal.


My Christian Son Lives With A Girl
  
I believe the best way to handle this situation is to show your son in the Word of God how that he is being drawn into Satan's snare, and then let it go and pray for the Holy Spirit to intervene in the situation. The worst thing you can do is to turn your back on your son. God loves us no matter what sin we commit, and you may be the only Bible his girlfriend ever reads, so you should be ever diligent in showing Christian love to both your son and his girlfriend!


Do You Witness On The Streets
  
Fitst ask them how they are doing. Listen to what their burdens or cares are. Once you have listened ask to pray with them.
The key is do not put yourself first.
Share with them that Jesus cares about them and died on the cross for them. The love of Christ is what won me over.


Sick People Have No Faith In God
  
It saddens me that a Pastor would teach like that.
I agree one should stay home if they are ill and could spread their sickness or disease.
When one is sick this does not mean they have no faith in God. One must stand in faith for the healing. God is our great physician.
Church does not save us Jesus the son of God saves us.
God's blessings to all.
