The Rich Pastor
  
Okay great, the next question is why did Christ tell the man this? The ruler had observed many good deeds and commandments, so why tell him to get rid of his riches?


How To Properly Tithe
  
Aren't we all called to witness according to the New Testament? To witness is ministering, just as we are to help the poor, sick,depressed, alcoholic, etc. Aren't we all to mature in the Word and application of it's instruction such as Bible study/groups? This is ministering. The key is that now we posess the Holy Spirit in ourselves and are to use the Holy Spirit, not just attend a church service.
I should start another blog on this so I don't get away from the original subject here.

Hi all. After thoughts and prayer I really didn't want to go back and forth with some. I would like to respond to a few comments. I have no desire for such a home, believe it or not. I'm very good with where we live and my life that God has been with me throughout. We do support an entire family and have now for almost a decade. I won't go into any details. I'm still new here and just can't believe the spite in these postings.
I am only seeking advice for spiritual and Biblical questions.


The Rich Pastor
  
Thanks Rita, I appreciate your advice.


How To Properly Tithe
  
Or, if not a home church, a simple.....building w/o all the bells and whistles that never end and with some monetary help for the pastor. Today we tend to think we should pay the pastor for all his visitation and prayer and ministering when the N.T. model is that we are all ministers and responsible for doing all the above mentioned actions. Instead, we have learned to pay one man to do this, attend once or twice per week to listen to what he has done and his ideas and we're okay with God.


The Rich Pastor
  
It's his house being built new,not provided by the church. He's been a pastor all his life and was only once working a secular job after being let go from the church. I won't go into why. I think even if a person works and buys his own house, to live rich is anti biblical-see rich young ruler and Christ. We're to be humble and good stewards. I think it's waste and could be used to help poor, etc. no matter if a pastor or not.I'm not saying we're to be poor, just good stewards.
Look around the country and world and it is hard to justify spending to live in a mansion here on earth.

Just did a study on tithing and I was amazed that nowhere in the Bible is tithing to be money. Check it out yourself. The mega rock star preachers with never ending begging for money as well as the local churches won't hear this.


Did David Go To Heaven
  
StrongAxe, I've received some good input to my question. Now I'm wondering about Genesis 2:24 One man, one woman, and how is it that God seemingly condones polygamy as in the verses given prior in this blog?


Did David Go To Heaven
  
StongAxe, Okay even though 1 Cor 6:9,10 doesn't mention David, we must take the whole of Scripture as Perfect with no contradictions. So to the root of my question initially, how do these verses and Galatians 5:19-21 apply to David, also to me, and everyone?


Did David Go To Heaven
  
cluny I'm not valuing your opinion due to spite. I wish you the best. I'd like to not go back and forth.


Did David Go To Heaven
  
Okay everyone, this is getting away from my original question. I'm not sure yet how to begin a new blog so let me ask this as it was mentioned in part of my original question: What does 1 Cor. 6:9 and Galatians 5:19-21 mean?


Did David Go To Heaven
  
Unfortunately you're making my point.Again, it's not about my being right or wrong, it's about humbly trying to learn God's Word.


Did David Go To Heaven
  
I just ran across this site less than a week ago. Rather than be encouraged, as we're to help each other, it seems there's too much discouragement here with almost everyone trying to convince me of why I'm wrong. I just needed insight for myself and to help others.


Did David Go To Heaven
  
Strong X ..?
Sin is sin and concubines are sinning. How can you defend this? God said to have one partner. This is clear.


Did David Go To Heaven
  

I'm trying to help prisoners that have sincere questions. So it is very important to be able to answer such questions.
Biblical characters are our examples to live by so we should learn from them as intended.


Did David Go To Heaven
  
Verses are ask for about concubines and sin: Genesis 2:24 and Mark 10:7


Did David Go To Heaven
  
I appreciate the two insights by Cluny and Kricket, but my confusion is from the concubines,not wives and you're right on the reasons for the actions but it doesn't make it acceptable unto God.So is David in ongoing sin?
Kricket I understand your comments, but didn't they apply in the O.T. also? Thanks for the posts.


Do Christians Have To Fast
  
when i did a 3 day fast, it was just good overall, im pretty overweight, and eventually i noticed i was more aware/happy i eat alot, and after one bite of a mc chicken i was good, i made the mistake to eat a whole #3 also and felt terrible and vomited it


Christian Women Dress Scantly
  
I just got done doing a bible study on this. It deals with what men wear more then what women wear. in the womans case it says they should be modest, shamefacedness, have not broided or plaiting of hair they should not wear to much jewlery and should not wear clothes that track attention to them. 1tim 2:9-10,1peter3:3-5,deut 22:5-11,lev 19:19 and should be covered at least to the thigh Exo 28:42, isaiah 47:2-3, let me know if i am way off on this one.


Is There Eternal Security
  
yes but it also was talking to a spacific people remember the children of Isreal........sign, the sun////.
