When To Join A Church
  
Mathew 16. Yahshua asked Peter the question "who do you say that I am." His correct answer that He is the Messiah was the rock upon which the Church would be built. If you believe and receive it too, you have joined the church. Where you fellowship is a different point. Start with two or three who believe in the word with you and pray to be led by His Spirit.


Explain 2 Peter 1:10
  
kathr, it appears you have brought markv under so much conviction, looking into a mirror, and not seeing one word you so graciously brought here.

Even answering his twisting of your words with so much kindness. Markv, why not apologize for twisting kathr's words? Now you have changed the subject to another objective you again have twisted the meaning.

Now that she has answered you again graciously, what other foul thing will you come back with?

Give diligence markv to make your next statement praising God.


Assured Of Your Salvation
  
Kathr4453--- I don't care what you think about any doctrine, Calvinism of otherwise.
---Donna66 on 6/9/11

Donna, you should care. Have you seen how Paul was over the top when addressing the Galatians, where false doctrine was brought in, undoing all he had delivered to them. How he labored again to form Christ in them. How he suffered persecution for the cross of Christ.

How Peter warns of false teachers brought in.

If someone says they don't care, that says it all.

Those who are Christ's care deeply.



Are Some Christians Blind
  
1 Peter 1:3
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,.

MarkV, I don't understand what you mean by beg for mercy? This is a new one on me.

Can you show any instances one begged for their salvation? I do see in Mark a blind man begging for mercy, but not salvation. He didn't receive his sight because he begged either. Jesus said Your faith has healed you, not "your begging has healed you".


Forced Free Will By God
  
Your free will exist in your mind. The thoughts you have give you a chance to make a choice. Will I accept that thought and let it become part of me or do I reject it and let it disappear. This is the way God created us and it is the gift of freewill.


My Wife Is Verbally Abusive
  
Hi. I too am verbally abused most days by my wife. I make $150,000 a year and it's not enough for her. She works also to support her spending but she doesn't want to. She wants a life of shopping where I provide every dime she wants, whenever she wants it. But she also want me to have the type of job where I can get our kids off to school in the morning and be home early enough to bring dinner home and them help them with their homework and put them to bed.

I can't find this type of job so she's mad at me for the lifestyle we do have, yelling and cursing me in front of our children. Please pray for me


Stop Wife From Sleeping Around
  
Richard....

I feel your pain. I separated from my wife back in January and stayed separated until March. Even after we reconciled I learned that she was still talking to other men and that she had slept with 3. In April of this year....she told me that she loved me and only wanted me....things have been great since then...however....today I found out that she has been going back to the adult dating sites....she claims to have a problem but wants to spend the rest of her life with me. In regards to your situation...it is tough...continue to pray. Don't push her but treat her with kindness and God will do the rest. She has to admit her weakness and repent to the lord before she will change 100%. Good luck


Christ Emptied Himself
  
I've read several responses to this question and I am as confused as ever.
The question of "emptied Himself", in my mind it appears that Christ was so loving and caring for us that he gave up the most precious gift one could ever hope to attain...that being on par with GOD. But where I get confused is if Jesus were still GOD on earth, then how could Satan have tempted him? Where is the miracle of faith shown by Jesus to be put to death. If he were still GOD on earth, HE would have known that he was going to be raised up.
Plus, on the cross HE asks "Father, why have you forsaken me?" This is a human emotion.
I guess I'll have to wait a while to have this discussion with my FATHER.


What Is The Mark Of Cain
  
Wow.... everything in the bible matters and is important. That dose not mean we are to imagine we understand, but be lead of the Holy Spirit into all truth. It is written, we shell give an account of every ideal word we speak and "Be not many masters (instructors) among you knowing you shell receive a greater condemnation."

The mark place on Cain was not in his mind. Who could see it and know not to slay him? The mark was whatever God place on him to let other's know not to harm him, an obvious mark which could be seen.

This mark is not placed on people today for protection, no matter what some "Preach." We are no long in a dispensation of innocence (ignorance) as Cain.


How Long To Create World
  
I say again, there is Time with God, not that God is limited by time, as it is Witten his ways are not man's was. God told Adam in the day he eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil he would truly die. God can not lie. Adam died before he was 1000 yrs old, and so he died in that day as the LORD has said. Yes, Adam also died instantly because he became separated from God, which is true death, both the spiritual and natural. But Adam did not see that day with the LORD after eating of the tree, dying with in a 1000 yrs. Days with God are not limited to mans understanding of a 24 hr clock.


How Long To Create World
  
It is written, a day is as a thousand years with the LORD, and a thousand years as a day. The Sun and Moon where created on the fourth day and His ways are not man's ways and His thoughts are not mans thoughts, how long was the day? It is clearly unknown. Honestly, knowing or not how long those days were is not going to stop us from entering in. That is as long as we do not get beside ourselves and pretend we understand what He has hide in Himself.

It doesnt really matter if it was a literal 6 days or 6 days according to God's time. It was six days. What matters is we believe Him, love our fellow servants and speak the truth.


Was Jesus Born On Dec 25th
  
No Jesus (Word God) He was not born on Dec 25th. In fact it is not recorded in the word what date He came into the world. One of the obvious reason why is because the date of his coming (birth) is not as important as the day of His death. In addition there is no place in the word which teaches us to keep the day of his coming ("birth"). In fact is written not to worship the True God as other heathen nations worship false gods. Deut 12:30-30, Jer 10:2-5, Gal 4:8-10. We are to worship according to his word, how can someone eternal have a true date of birth?
Christmas is not of God, but carnal minded men.

Why Do Christians Divorce
  
Adultery is not grounds for divorce, only fornication is grounds according to Jesus. Matt 19:9 No regardless of what many preach fornication and adultery are not the same, Gal 5:19. The scripture were written by guidance of the Holy Spirit. Unless man was confused by the Spirit they are not the same, because both are mentions, Adultery and right next to it fornication in the same verse one after the other, showing there is a difference. Believe what is written over what is preached.

Married To A Drunk Pastor
  
It is written God hates "putting away" which is leaving or divorcing. Being a Pastor is not something men should decide to do, but are appointed to do of the LORD. Whomever the LORD set free is free indeed. No weapon form against us shell prosper. Sounds as though the brother needs a pastor sent of God. Encourage and empower you husband through prayer. Do what is written and God will change or move him. Stand for the LORD and submit unto His will, not the way of the world as so many claiming "faith" in God, yet surrendering unto the ways of the world.


Burn In Hell For Eternity
  
No the Bible doses not teach that the wicked will burn for an eternity in hell. It dose teach the wicked will receive a punishment they are worthy of. The Bible teaches not to be self or men appointed teachers. My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation. James 3:1- . The master from the Greek didaskalos means teacher, master or instructor. Hell itself will be destroyed, so it is impossible for someone to be in it for an eternity. In fact it is written heal shell give up the dead which is in it, those not found in the book (book of life) shell be cast in the lake of fire. Rev 20:13-14


Hide Abortion From Husband
  
It is written, all manner of sin shell be forgiven unto men, but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven. Matt 12:31-32. I pray you (husband and wife) work things according to you vow because "God hates" divorce. Malachi 2:16. Men time to grow up and stop being "mama's boys" and become husbands according to the word. "For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife..." Matt 19:4-5. Yes you can be forgiven! Confess your fault, He is faithful and just to forgive. 1 John 1:9. Repent, believe in the mercy of God, and be merciful. Forgive you husband for his mistakes and you shell be forgiven, forgive not and you will not be forgiven. It is written. Matt 5:7, 6:14-15


Care For Widows And Orphans
  
Hanna,
You certainly weren't asking for much, and you had done a lot of the "heavy lifting" (buying the house, the paint, etc.) yourself. My question is, If you are a Christian yourself, do you serve in the church where you're a member? It's an excellent way to get to know people and it has the side benefit of helping you to 'get the word out' when you have a need. If you feel that your needs were being ignored, I'd suggest going to the leadership in your church and asking if they could help. Sometimes we DO have to go to the top in order to get things done, even if that isn't the way God intended for it to work. I'd give it another try, and will be praying that you get results this time. Sometimes persistence pays off!
