Praying For A Good Wife
  
I waited 41 years single and celibate. My mother said I didn't have to do anything --that God would do all the work. Then I married the wrong woman from the other side of the world just for words. Marriage has been hell. Better unhappy married than unhappy married. The NT teaching is that it is good not to touch a woman (1 Cor 7:1) AND that it is better not to marry (Matthew 19:10) and that a widow is happier to remain as she is. (1 Cor 7:40) Ecclesiastes 7:28 while I was still searching but not finding I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all. Proverbs 31:10 A wife of noble character who can find?


How To Love People
  
And what of "Was not Esau Jacobs brother? declares the Lord. Yet I have loved Jacob, but Esau I have hated," (Malachi 1:2) And what of "Matthew 6:15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. (Matthew 6:15) God did destroy the whole earth by flood and he did destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, how are we to understand unconditional love?


Does God Even Exist
  
Psalm 14:1
The fool says in his heart, There is no God.

James 2:19
You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe thatand shudder.


The Church Is Dying
  
I agree. But there will always be a remnant. Sometimes I wonder if there will only be 144,000 saved. But may be that is just the number that has not defiled itself with women. Pretty soon conservative christians will be hard hit. Not a good time for kids. Did the Moral Majority ever exist?


Secretly In Love With Married Man
  
Yes, most us blow are chance. I'm in remorse also. Others secretly hate their spouse. In another time, you could share a husband. Such was Leah's love for her husband. (Genesis 30:9-20) Wish mine were a woman as Leah. Better secretly loving a married man than secretly hating your spouse.


Range Of Sins
  
Yes. The GREATEST commandment is to LOVE GOD with ALL our heart. The SECOND is love your neighbor as yourself. And YES our splendor and place in heaven will vary. Some are more bright. Some less bright. 1 Corinthians 15:38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 1 Cor 15:41-2 The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another, and star differs from star in splendor. So will it be with the resurrection of the dead.


When Did Jesus Go To Hell
  
"Today you will be with me in PARADISE," said Jesus (Luke 23:43). In as much as the Apostle Creed states that Jesus descended into hell and on the third day rose again, Jesus does not say, "Today you will be with me in HELL." Now newer translations of the Apostle's Creed use the word "grave" instead of "hell" as scholars as well as Jehovah Witness say "hell" means "grave".


Praying For A Good Wife
  
Proverbs 31:30
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Proverbs 31:10,12
[ Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character ] A wife of noble character who can find? She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.

GOOD LUCK IN FINDING A GOOD WIFE.

Ecclesiastes 7:28
while I was still searching but not finding I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them all.


Explain Mark 9:1
  

Acts 7:54-56

The Stoning of Stephen

When the members of the Sanhedrin heard this, they were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. 55 But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. Look, he said, I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.

Mark 9:1 there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

John 21:23
Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die, he only said, If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?


Authority To Forgive Sins
  
Doctrinally, Catholic priests and Lutheran pastors can forgive sin. The Pharisees thought was that only God could forgive sin, so they were upset when Jesus said "Your sins are forgiven." Jesus gave authority to his disciples to forgive sins, so pastors and priests assume this authority to forgive sins doctrinally speaking. Of course Jesus taught us if we do not forgive others, neither will we be forgiven and those who love little will be forgiven little and there are sins that won't be forgiven.


Is Islam A Peaceful Religion
  
NO IT ISN'T. Nor is christianity. And when did Judiasm ever attain peace? Jesus did not come to bring peace, but a sword.


Which Bible Character
  
I am the sheep without a shephard. I am the unprofitable servant or the blind leading the blind.


What Is Faith
  
Heb 11:1

ERV- Faith is what makes real the things we hope for. It is proof of what we cannot see.

ASV - faith is assurance of things hoped for, a conviction of things not seen.

EXB - Faith means being sure [the assurance] of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it.

GNT - To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.

NCV - knowing that something is real even if we do not see it.

NET - faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see.

NLT - Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen, it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.


37 Year Old Man Marry 20 Year Old
  
Corey, HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER. I believe you will regret the marriage and will wish you had listened to your parents. They probably know better than you on this. You are not honoring God to not honor your parents. There is more than an age factor here, your parents have disapproved. You do not honor God to not honor your parents.


Hurt By A Church
  
OF COURSE.

Haven't all?

I think all people get hurt by the church and by other christians.


Standard For Christians
  
1 John 3:23
And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.

1 Corinthians 13:13
These three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

John 14:15
If you love me, keep my commands.

John 15:10
If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Fathers commands and remain in his love.

2 John 1:6
And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.

Luke 7:47
Her many sins have been forgiven as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.


Do You Judge Others
  
Churches do poorly in both. One, churches do poorly in a "proper way to ensure the church goes only against genuine errors in belief." Two, churches do poorly in preventing "views that are heretical". Churches have become immersed in replace testament doctrines, so how can it be that the church will uphold any standard of correction? Little things are made large and large things are made little. Unimportant becomes important and important becomes unimportant.

I do not know many "who are in fact following God or the Bible. But there has to be a remnant though I do not even consider myself a part of the remnant or FIT. As a poor student of Christ, I only achieve some familiarity.


God Finds Us Jobs
  
OPINIONS! OPINIONS! OPINIONS! Some jobs we shouldn't take in the first place. Luther coined the word "VOCATION". We are not to make ourselves "slaves of men" yet we are to be "servents of all". We borrow from Paul being a "tent-maker" and apply this to an evangelistic life. God tests a few with loss of employment. Some God reaches through such events. Some come to ruin. "Time and chance happen to all" says the teacher (Ecclesiastes) "Time for every purpose under heaven." It is a gift from God to find satisfaction in your labor. (Ecclesiastes 3:13) Who is to say? God finds most of us work to do that we do not do as we are busy with other things.


One Nation Under God
  
Moreover, "IN GOD WE TRUST" is upon OUR money. In money we do not trust. Behind every bill and upon every coin are the words, "IN GOD WE TRUST". To get rid of God is disaster. But nations do rise and fall. Egypt, Rome and Britian no longer excell. Each has its former greatness. GOD STILL RULES though it seems to us he be an ABSENTEE LANDLORD. But he will send his son to collect. Luke 20:9-18 Amid all that, Satan is the Prince of the Air and the systems have been given to him. Jesus did not dispute that with the Devil (Luke 4:5-6) who showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world claiming, I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to."


New Creation In Christ
  
What characterizes believers? The answer, Matthew 13:18-23. All of these characterize believers.

When one does not understand, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in the heart. This is the seed sown along the path. The seed falling on rocky ground, one hears the word and at once receives it with joy. But having no root, they last only a short time. Trouble or persecution come because the word, they quickly fall away. The seed falling among the thorns one hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. But the seed falling on good soil one hears the word and understands it. This is one produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
