Hurt By A Church
  
This is to Susie B and others like her who can't understand how someone can leave a church because of hurt. I used to feel the same way and was probably arrogant about it. I was proud that I didn't let things hurt me, even though I had seen some things myself. But boy did I change my tune when the pastor got verbally abusive with me & publicly accused me without ever talking with me first. After several things said I finally left after two decades. God said "wipe the dust off your feet"..and I left. Don't think it can't happen to you. I am much more compassionate now.


Why Is Abortion Wrong
  
Mary, what compassion and love do WE have for God when WE have destroyed one of his creations?


Why Is Abortion Wrong
  
Sometimes as sorry as it seems, we are not given the right nor power by God to decide who should or shouldnt be born! The human being is conceived yet here by God for a reason. Think of the African-American actress Ethel Waters. She was conceived thru unfortunate rape but went on and became a great actress and later a singer with a testimony for Billy Graham Crusades!


Is Boxing Unchristian
  
No offense to anyone, but what could possibly be Christian about boxing? Even the environment of the big events is of the world. And then huge salaries to punch each other up and possibly shed blood or even death for filthy lucre? Why not go back to viewing persons being thrown to lions? That was also considered a 'sport'. Christians are even to avoid even the 'appearance' of sin or evil. Come on, saints! Use your head, and above all, your HEARTS!!


Why Is Abortion Wrong
  
Whether the emphasis is on the word "kill" or "murder", the end result is what matters. Killing or murdering an animal for human consumption never will equal the same as killing or murdering a human life. In the Old Testament, did the Lord not say that he hates the shedding of innocent blood? The answer to the question remains the same, Thou Shalt Not Kill (murder). And it doesnt take a rocket scientist to prove that this means of human life. Our civil laws of the land state the same. And where do you think they got the idea from?

Help From Church If You Tithe
  
Gary, I feel sorry that you are only familiar with pastors and churches that you made reference to! But, let me assure you that there YET are good, HONEST, HARDWORKING pastors who are on duty 24 hours/7 days a week! Many have regular jobs as well as church pastors. They have to because the church salary is low and they accept that and are devoted just the same! Dont let the events in the media make you think that every pastor or church is evil. Seek and you will find a good pastor and good church. However, NO ONE is forcing you to do so!


Why Is Abortion Wrong
  
Why is Abortion wrong? It is one of the 10 Commandments "Thou Shalt Not Kill". It is as simple and as direct as that. Now whether we accept and obey that is another story!

No one is going to attempt to force you to come to services twice on Sunday and during the week! A good Pastor suggests this for the good of your spiritual walk, i.e. bible study and prayer meetings build your walk with God. The gathering together with others almost like a family only strengthens your faith and encourages you for the week ahead. It is not just good enough to attend only Sunday a.m. Perhaps that is why the saints of God are so weak nowadays and are ignorant of the things of God!

Pastors' wives hear and see alot of interaction between the pastor and his church members, things that they cannot share with others. Her statement was very brass and unthoughtful and should not have been said. But, perhaps, her statement reflects her seeing the Pastor being taken advantage of, which there are many 'TAKERS' in the church. And THIS DOES HAPPEN!


Help From Church If You Tithe
  
You would be surprised at how many church members ask and 'expect' help from the Church, calling the Pastor all hours of the day and nite, asking for Pastor to meet them at the hospital or jail cell to pray for their loved one, ask for money to pay bills and buy food, and etc. etc. And these same folks will not put a dime in the offering plate, will not volunteer and give back! So, maybe this Pastor's wife was voicing her frustration in seeing this! Yes, the Church is to give and help, but shouldnt we also have in our hearts to give back to God, no questions asked?


Bishop Edie Long To Jail
  
Situations, (in this case, albeit alleged at this time) are commonplace in our churches. How do I know? Because my deceased Dad, who at the time was a minister in a large, full-gospel church, was approached by a tearful mother confiding that she felt her baby girl had been molested at the church daycare by the church pastor, and since the pastor was well-loved (Dad loved him as well) and the pastor was an upstanding community leader, she didnt know who to tell for she was afraid and felt no one would believe her and that the church would ostracize her, let alone accuse her of lying or gossip! The pastor was later found to be a pedophile! So, I say not all is gossip but truth we need to hear and not turn our ears from!


Obama Funds Abortions
  
It is so sad that we as Christians, who are committed (which I hope ALL reading these words are) have it in our hearts to go on and on whether the President is Muslim or not!! Whether he has a birth certificate or not, etc. etc. Hey, however he got into office HE IS IN THERE WHETHER MUSLIM OR CHRISTIAN OR ALIEN from outer space! All the debate should be whether we are doing OUR PART of righting our wrongs, standing up for the voiceless (abortions), using all rightful measures by contacting our representatives to fight these grievances instead of wasting our energies on long-winded discussions. Scripture says that the Lord will fight our battles. But we have to do our part as well - as PROACTIVE Christians, not just REACTIVE blowhards! Geeeeez!

Wild Dancing Jumping Church
  
The other side to this might be that there are also some folks in less demonstrative churches who are sitting there quiet and not dancing or hollering, but also arent obedient to the Word of God in other ways in their lives, too! It goes back to what expression YOU PREFER. LIBERTY over BONDAGE. Be free to obey and serve God as the Lord leads YOU to. As long as it is in 'spirit and in truth'.


Who is David Jeremiah
  
There's something about him that is unsettling to me. Just My Opinion.

TBN Ministry Said No Money
  
I saw a ministry the other day state 'yes, the Word is FREE to receive, but it takes MONEY to spread it'. I believe that. And yes, we want to be comfortable utilizing the facilities in our own churches, thus, it takes money. I guess the complaint once again is the TACTICS these networks and ministries use in order to GET the money from average folks and the LIFESTYLES they live after they do get the funding! It's scandalous!
