Are Women High Maintenance
  
Not all women are high maintenance. Just the ones you want to avoid.


Is Wine A Sin
  
If you accept a little wine for pleasure (ps 104:15) but deny kids the joy of an Easter egg hunt that is pretty selfish.


Are Prophets Needed Today
  
Read the book of revelation it mentions prophets the end of time has not yet come.


No Time In Eternity
  
2 tim 3 7always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith. 9But they will not make further progress, for their folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes's and Jambres's folly was also. Read the conflict of moses.


Care For Widows And Orphans
  
Would God be mad at us if we gave/helped a widow or orphan rather than a preacher who claims limited resources, but asks you give to support his salary and building project? Jesus named the scribes "who devour widow's houses," and the people who had surplus but gave to the Temple instead of the poor widow. Why was she in poverty? God's interest is not our buildings but PEOPLE! Jesus showed that Temples are not important but lives created in His image/likeness. The two mite widow probably went home and died from starvation because they didn't see the value God made in a widow versus the Temple. The Bible says deacons are to serve but when we see a need not being met, do it in LOVE--"Against such there is no law."


Explain Romans 8:20
  
"Guts"- Marc

What, are you 12? You and your "Christian" Zionist anger issues.


Falling In Love With An Atheist
  
Falling in love is something that happens in your brain! Regardless of religion, i'd say this "athiest" whos willing to forget what You call a problem is the one being just here :) Athiests arent out to Hunt christians, you believe in one god, out of all the ones ever created, so you nearly as athiest as him, its only you belive in one, and him none.


Explain The Triune Of God
  
"The original Nicene creed of 325 does have 'And the Holy Ghost' on it..." Ruben

Yes but nothing is said about the relationship of the HS to the Father or Son...certainly no mention of equality or a three in one.

"We have tons of written letters from the apostles successors about the Trinity!" Ruben

That is debatable but the bigger question is...were those "successors" inspired of God as were the actual Bible writers?

And since there are no autographs (originals) of either the inspired biblical manuscripts or the church "father' writings, which ones would more likely survive unadulterated...what God had inspired or the commentary of uninspired men that followed?


Explain The Triune Of God
  
"If you will take time to read the Nicene Creed, it will describe the Trinity as well as it can be described." Catholicus


Not in the original Nicene creed of 325.


Fast forward 56 years to 381 before the third person of the trinity was included.

That's some 285 years after the last inspired book of the bible was written and all of the apostles were gone.

Yes. Two hundred and eighty five years.


Did Jesus Christ Preexist
  
"Both Divine and Human natures, including a physical body." Cluny/Mark_V

So since "God is spirit" (John 4:24) are we to understand that one person of the Trinity (Christ) has a physical body in heaven while the other two, the Father (John 4:24...again) is spirit, and the Holy spirit is...well...spirit?

Please explain.


Really Know Who God Is
  
"No idea what I'm talking about!" Marc (1)

Agreed.

The term father occurs some 1,750 times in the Scriptures, in singular, plural and possessive forms. Primarily it is used to refer to literal fathers, male ancestors, the older men of ones people, etc.

Early on Jehovah was spoken of as the Father of his people. (Deut. 32:6, ASV, Ps. 89:26, Isa. 63:16, 64:8).

Abraham is called the father of all those having faith. (Rom. 4:11) At Genesis 4:21 Jubal is called the father or founder of musicians. (RS) And Jesus termed Satan the father of the lie. John 8:44.

Respectfully Elisha called Elijah my father. The apostle Paul said he was a father in a spiritual sense to others. 1 Cor. 4:15.

Really Know Who God Is
  
"No idea what I'm talking about!" Marc (2)

Continued-

Whether literally or spiritually, all of the biblical references to Father(s) have something in common- a paternal (real or figurative) or authoritative relationship with others.

With the simple meaning of the word Father in mind- clearly God was not Father before creation. And you are wrong to suggest that JWs believe such a thing. They dont.

By contrast, while the title Father is applied to God some 15 times in the Hebrew scriptures (245 NT?) His personal name Jehovah (YHWH) appears almost 7,000 times in His inspired word.

"But now, O Jehovah, thou art our Father...and we all are the work of thy hand." Isaiah 64:8 ASV


Scripture For The Trinity
  
"Exodus 7:1- Foolishness"~ Warwick

What is the Hebrew word for "like" in this verse?

Of course Moses is not the Almighty God, but clearly the same Hebrew and Greek words for "God", Elohim and "Theos", scripturally apply to men, angels and The Almighty.


Gift Of Healing Ministry
  
//Ordained or not, how could you know what these peoples calling is?//

I don't and they don't know what their calling is for this season or the next season. They just tried it and God worked through them. We are all in the ministry some just have secular jobs. Healing is a gift, not a calling, subject to the greatest glory of God.


Is Guilt A Weapon Of The Devil
  
Guilt is from God
2 Corinthians 7:9 - 11
9 Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner. That was Apostle Paul. And he was telling the truth. The reality of Guilt is that God is the one who wants you to feel guilt- "godly sorrow" for your sins. Satan is the one who wants you to believe Guilt is wrong. Don't believe his lies. You should feel bad for what you do which is Wrong. That is God's Plan and required for humility and action necessary to proceed with honest and effective Repentance.


By His Stripes We Are Healed
  
The flogging and crucifixion (stripes and sores) physical injuries has lead to our spiritual healing of washing our sins away.


Is It Important To Fast
  
If only you feel lead to fast by God then go for it. Fasting can also give you great disipline and answers to important questions. Also if doing it more than a day seek a doctor to learn physical reactions to not eating and steps to take to prevent health complications. Also many types of fast such as no meat, juice only, pick your type that will not harm you. Even try no facebook, computer, or other for the people who are addicted that stuff.


What Affects Your Beliefs
  
Practice - yes, Why do church services start at 11:00? So farmer have time to milk cows. Why does my church play secular music? non-chrisitians listen to secular music and we want them to feel welcome. Church pracitces are based on preferences of church and culture.
Doctrine - no, Doctrine needs to be based on Biblical teaching. doctrine is a precept. The teaching can be by different practices which is a preference.
