Obligation To Honor My Brother
  
No where in the Bible does it ever say honor thy older brother. There is no such commandment. Since that is the case, one does not have a Christian obligation to him.


Is TBN A Godly TV Station
  
I watched this past Sunday on 1/1/2012 & they had leased air time to a known Seventh Day Adventist ministry called "It is Written". During the show the so called minister was quoting from Ellen White-their now dead prophet. This is a known cult!!! Why would they sell them air time. I thought that the goal of Christianity was to promote & teach how to be a Born Again Christian? Adventism doesn't teach it. Adventism uses other books besides the bible. So why are they now on TBN?


Hurt By A Church
  
Hi,

I understand what you are going through. I have also been hurt by my old church. I tried to suggest a way for the congregation of my old church to become more communal,but the pastor completely shut me down and said I have issues.. I think it was because he took my advice as a reflection on his performance as a pastor.. I moved on to a new church since, but I find that the pastor at my new church treats me strangely. Apparently the pastor from my old church knows the minister at the new church.. I suspect that they exchanged words behind my back.

I know what you mean, when I left my old church, almost no one cared, some of those I would call friends turned on me,

Stay strong my brother, maybe look for a new church.


Church Altar Church For Prayer
  
If no sacrifice if offered, it can not be an 'Altar'. It is merely a 'table'.
And, there is no need to Honor a 'table', because it has no significant meaning.
A saw horse with a sheet of plywood on them is the same.
An Altar, though, has intrinsic value and should be Honored.


Is Obama A Great President
  
Ah, give me a second or two......
No. He's in way over his head, IMHO.


First Three Days Of Creation
  
Yes,

Time is not a constant, and I don't mean between our time and God's. Read about Einstein's theory on time. look up "Einstein was right: space and time bend"

If the earth was expanding, then time in the beginning was different than time now.


Come Back To My Husband
  
Check out Mark 10, Matthew 19, Matthew 5

31It has been said, Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.f 32But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.

I'd suggest consulting with someone in your church if you're both Christians. if both are christians, the word is clear.


Christian Dating A Non-Christian
  
You are aware of the curse of God upon man in Genesis Chapter 3? The curse is real and takes effect once you are married. It's likely to creep up and ensnare you after the honeymoon period. If you're both not Christians it's likely going to be hard to control the curse.

If you don't believe in the curse, then watch Jerry Springer.


My Husband Does Drugs
  
Drug Rehab. Try and find a Christian one. Then try and send him to a 3 to 6 month all inclusive place for him to really study what it means to be a Christian. They aren't fun trips, but more like barracks.


Can The Devil Talk To Your Mind
  
Any "voices" or thoughts you have are only coming from you.


Friend Becoming A Mormon
  
Samuel:
If I am a cook and I make everything on your dinner table and you ask me if I created all this (pointing to the delicious looking foods), does anyone think that it was created from nothing or from ingredients?

If I am a painter and I create a masterpiece, does anyone think that I created the canvas and paints from nothing?

If I, as a bio-engineer, create a type of tomato that is resistent to a certain of disease (TMV for example), would anybody assume I created the tomato from nothing?

Obviously from the all the examples above, "creation" does not necessarily mean "from nothing". And I believe the hebrew word in genesis does not mean "from nothing".


I Had A Demonic Dream And You
  
I've had many dreams in which I've had encounters with demons, each frightening enough that they are vivid years later. M dreams would always be physical battles with demons where I would call on God and Jesus and recite scripture while fightingthe demons. I am no longer as strong of a Christian as I have been in the past, and because of that or no,t the dreams don't happen anymore. I don't know if any of this is linked, but I just woke up 10 minutes ago with 10 seconds of sleep paralysis and extreme fright that I would see another demon during the period where I couldn't move.

What Is A Jezebel Spirit
  
Ive been dating a woman with this spirit for 3 years and it has almost killed me, no exageration. She has caused so much disruption in my church and my life that I am amazed it has lasted this long. I am definitely her Ahab. What can I do?


Is Harold Camping Correct
  
One thing that I think we as Christians need to ponder is that since the beginning of time, men have predicted the end of time. During the decline of the Roman Empire, there were many Christians who thought that the world was ending. And they had good reason to believe this, the Roman empire was just as powerful and great as America is today. Its influence was just as widespread and its decline was cataclysmic for Europe as well as the Middle East and North Africa.

Every generation thinks the end will be in their lifetime. The truth is that Jesus said the end was near in his time, 2,000 years ago! We often think we are wise and think that it is worse now than it has ever been. But we deceive ourselves.


Refinance My Mortage Now
  
In veiw of the recent sub prime loans Crisis in the US I think that if you are on a fixed rate mortgage you should stay there . Varaible rate mortgages are just that, Varaible. While they are lower at the moment. There is no reason why they will not increase in the future (as they usually do) to a higher rate than a fixed contract mortgage. Most mortgages are over a period of up to thirty years. Do you think the banks are offering this product for the Customers benefit?

Way To Tell People About Jesus
  
My favorite way to tell people about Jesus is in the way that the Holy Spirit enables which is through any contacts I have with people - neighbors, people en route to places (fellow travelers). Recently someone asked me, "Have you got a light?" So I replied quickly, "Yes, only Jesus!" The person smiled, shook his head and walked on. In making that response, I was seizing the opportunity to share my faith.


Men Wear Hats In Church
  
does hats in church really matter? what is church anyways? a building or a group of believers coming together in his name? people make everything so complicated and legalistic. Does it bother you that much when someone wears their hat in church? sooo bad that you will let it get between you and God? It's all about the heart and love. God knows what kind of respect I have for him within my heart.


Is Mary A Mediator For Christians
  
The Wedding at Cana was Christ's first miracle. The transformation of water into wine is a representation of Christ's sacrifice (His Blood being the wine) which allowed the cosmic wedding between God and Man to take place. It was Mary who interceded for us, telling Her Son that "They have no wine" (Jn 2:3.) Thus, if it wasn't for Mary's intercession, Jesus wouldn't have been able to provide the wine (His Blood) for the wedding because He wouldn't have known about it. She is our Mediator.
