Mentals Disorder For Christians
  
I agree with the original statement of sickness is caused by sin. We are all sinners past present and future. So cancer, aids, mental sickness and all other illness are a direct consequent of mankinds rejection of God. However to take all of that and bring it down to an individual level is ignorant! You are not sick because you did that one sin that God caught you doing. If that were the case there wouldnt be one single healthy soul on Earth. The fact is everything goes through Gods hands first and if he allowed a person to carry the burden of sickness, then it is for a purpose. Everything God does has a purpose.


Lonely Since Husband Died
  
My husband of 40 years died last April of sudden cardiac arrest. The sheer panic I felt as I was giving him CPR before the paramedics arrived has yet to leave me. He was gone by the time they arrived. I am 59 years old and sometimes feel like my life is over. I am still so heart broken that some days I cannot even function. I now live in a tiny little apartment in a 55+ community and seclude myself quite a bit. I wish I had some good advice but obviously I am not doing well and have no answers. I have started to attend church again and that gives me some comfort. I cannot imagine living the rest of my life like this. I only hope that some day the pain and loneliness will get better.


Did God Create Hell
  
God Prepared Hell for the Devil

Matthew 25:41 Then shall He say also unto them on the left hand (the goat nations), Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels (nations that hindered or tried to harm Israel during the Great Tribulation):


How To Worship God
  
John 4:23 23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth (God is not looking for Holy Worship, He is looking for Holy Worshippers, as stated, Calvary would make possible an entirely different type of worship, which did not require ceremonies or rituals, etc.) : for the Father seeketh such to worship Him (means that by the word "seeketh" such are not easily found) .


Was Jesus Sinless
  
Isaiah 53
First of all Jesus did not die spiritually on the Cross by becoming a sinner. That is not scriptural. Even though Jesus was the "Sin Offering" He did not sin or become sin, otherwise He could not have been a Perfect Sacrifice which was demanded by God. The sacrifice had to be perfect and God is the only perfect one. In the Old Testament God was the only one who kept the Covenant between Himself and man because man always broke it. But because of what Jesus did being both God and man the covenant will never ever be broken again and that had to come from a Perfect Sacrifice because God cannot sin.


Was Cornelius A Christian Jew
  
Read Acts Chapter 10
Cornelius was a religious man who desired God but he was not saved. God sent Peter to preach the gospel to him and he accepted Christ. Religion and good works will not save, we must accept in the work of Jesus alone (John 6:28-29, Romans 10:4).


Explain Pre Tribulation Rapture
  
The Rapture
1 Thessalonians 1:10
..and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath (tribulation) to come.
(Titus 2: 13, 1 John 3: 2, Revelations 4:1, 1 Corinthians 15: 51-58,


How To Really Follow Jesus
  
How To Really Follow Jesus:

There is only one way to follow God and that is through the Cross of Christ. We are not able to follow Gods law unless we put our faith totally in the One who was able to follow and fulfill them and that was Jesus. Read Matthew 5: 17, Galatians 3:13, Romans 10: 4 Titus 3:5, Hebrews 11:6. John 6: 28-29. Then said they unto Him, What shall we do, that we might work the Works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, this is the Work of God, that you believe on Him whom He has sent (it offends the self-righteous to tell them that.


How To Reach Islamics In Love
  
Preaching the gospel is showing love to anyone even the Islams because it has the power to save. The Holy Spirit overshadows the message of Christ Crucified and convicts sinners. (Romans 1:16, 1 Corinthians 2:2). It would be suicide to give the Islams their way in this country. Christianity is that God came down to earth and gave His life to save us but the religion of Islam is a religion of murder to those who will not submit to find their salvation which is no salvation at all.


Can We Bind Satan
  
Response to do we have authority and power over the devil: Yes we do!
Luke 9:1 authority over devils and diseases
Luke 10:19 Jesus said I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions which means this is the domain of Spiritual Authority, it is only over spirit beings, and not at all over humans.


Who Can Forgive Sins
  
Response to John 20:19-23 who can forgive sin? Only God can forgive sins: Jeremiah 36:3, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Mark 2:7. Jesus was telling His disciples that when someone repents of their sin when the Gospel is preached we as believers can tell that person that they were forgiven of their sins because that is what Jesus said in Matt 9:2 and 5. Mark 2:5 and 9. Mark 3:28. Mark 4:12. Luke 5:23. Luke 7:47 and 48.


Was Paul Saved
  
Response to: Was Paul saved?
(1 Corinthians 15:9) Paul speaks how he persecuted the church before he was saved on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:5). Paul was humbled that he was given the meaning of the New Covenant (Galatians 1:12) Yes Paul was saved and wrote most of the New Testament letters.


What Happens At Death
  
Response to what happens at the time of death:
Corinthians 5:8 speaks of being absent from the body (when we die) and present with the Lord if we are saved. In order to be saved we must acknowledge we are a sinner, repent and ask Jesus to forgive us and ask Him to come into your heart. (Romans 10:9-10). If we die lost we are still absent from our body but we go to hell (read Luke 16:19-31)


Thorn Was A Demon
  
Response to Paul's Thorn in 2 Corinthians 12:9
Whatever the thorn was God wanted Paul to know His grace was sufficient and wanted Paul to understand that His (God) strength and accomplishments was made perfect through all that Paul could not do or accomplish. The devil is the one who tempts us so that we will fail, but God tests us so that we will prevail in His strength.


Pro-Life And War
  
Allan I agree with Mark regarding the freedoms you have to say what you want in this great nation the USA that was founded on the word of God. True freedom is allowing Jesus to change your heart because (Matthew 15:19 says for out of the heart precedes evil thoughts, murders, adultery, fornication, thefts, false witness and blasphemies). Allan you will never understand true freedom until you meet our Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus said in (John 14:6 He is the Way, Truth and Life and no one comes to the Father but by Me).


Judged By My Past
  
Response to: but still I'm judged by my past. Why?
My response to your call of concern is that if you already repented by asking Jesus to forgive you and asking Him into your heart you have been saved according to the scriptures (please read these) Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8, Acts 16:31. God is the only one who could judge the heart of a person Romans 2:16. Put all your faith in the work of the Cross of Christ and the Holy Spirit will change your heart and ways. We cannot change in our own strength. The only sin God will not forgive is the blaspheming of the Holy Spirit Mark 3:29. God loves you!


Was Jesus Sinless
  
Answer to:
1 Peter 2:24.....bare in His own body....

1 Peter 1:18-20 . (19) But with the precious blood of Christ as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. Without spot or blemish refers to the OT in Leviticus the priests had to offer male animals that were not marred or sick in any way in order for them to be an acceptable sacrifice unto God. Jesus was perfect in His physical body, character, His Spirit, His life, perfect in the keeping of the law and above all perfect in the Sacrifice of Himself. God demonstrated through Christ His displeasure of sin and became our Substitute and our Representative man and now we identify with Him through His Righteousness.


Was Jesus Sinless
  
2 Corinthians 5:21 For He hath made Him to be sin for us (sin-offering taking the penalty of sin in our place ) who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God. (Jesus was treated as IF He was a sinner but was sinless. We are treated as though we were righteous though we are defiled and depraved). Jesus was the only sinless human being who ever lived and forever sinless to be the perfect sin offering, otherwise the sacrifice could not have been an atonement. Jesus death was not an Execution or Assassination but a Sacrifice. His blood was precious (1 Peter 1:19). God is a Spirit and cannot sin or die so a body was prepared for Him (Hebrews 10:5).


Explain Matthew 5:17-18
  
Re: Matthew 5:17-18
Read what Paul said in (Colossians 2: 14-15) these verses in Colossians does not mean that He died spiritually and had to fight the devil in hell, that is false teaching. Jesus went to hell for two reasons. Read (Ephesians 4:8) Meaning He freed the souls in Paradise, read (Luke 16). Read (1 Peter 3:19) Meaning He preached to those chained in hell. These spirits refer to evil spirits. God always refer to humans as souls. We in ourselves cannot obey the commandments of God in our own strength but we are to put our trust in who Jesus is (God) and what He did (Cross).


Is The Devil A Liar
  
Read: Ezekiel 28:13-19
This refers to the devil who was once called Lucifer who was anointed by God but the day came that iniquity was found in his heart. These verses are speaking of what happened in the past and what will happen in the future. What Jesus meant in John 8:44 that the devil had truth at one time but he fell. Jesus was saying to these Jews and anyone who resists the truth that they are believing a lie.
