I Strayed Away From God
  
I wasn't a christian and one day I prayed to God saying, "God, please, give me faith in the Bible. I want to read it and believe it. I want to become a christian as my father is one and my grandparents." I started to read the Gospel and I believed. Later I started to attend church where I repented and asked the believers to pray for me. After that the pastor of the same church baptised me in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. I think this is the way to salvation. God leads different people to himself differently, but if you believe him with an honest heart and ask him to show you the right way, he will.


What Is The Rapture
  
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be cought up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17


Second Work Of Grace
  
We will not make it to heaven without the Holy Spirit. It's a power that raised Jesus from the dead and will raise us up to meet Jesus when he comes.


Women Cover Their Heads
  
Women in our church cover their heads. It's a sign for Angels that the married women are under their husbands' authority as Paul states in Corinthians. Girls in our church cover their head also. We've always done it and are used to it.


Do You Sin Often
  
Dear Robyn,1 John 1:8-10 means if we sin and say we do not, we deceive ourselves. "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." Romans 8:2 "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death." This is Paul speaking. 1 John 3:9, "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God."


Was Lazarus A Real Person
  
I believe this is not a parable, because Jesus didn't say so. He started to tell a story, "There was a certain rich man...And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus..." I agree with a previous statement that Moses and Abraham who are spoken of in this story are real, why would this be a parable.


Born Of Water And Spirit
  
Born of water means repenting and turning away from sins and asking God for forgiveness and being water baptized like Jesus was. Born of the spirit means receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in different languages as a sign of being baptized in the spirit.


What Is The Rapture
  
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be cought up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17


Did Jesus Die Spiritually
  
"Who (Jesus) in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared (was heard because of his reverence - Russian translation)..." Hebrews 5:7 I think God "was able to save him from death" means spiritual death.


Christians Health Issues
  
I remember being overweight and struggling with shoe laces on my sneakers, because it was hard to bend over. I started exercising and lost weight. Now I continue to go to the gym to work out so I do not become overweight again. It's good to be healthy.


A Revelation From God
  
Once I had a God given dream. I saw our earth as a globe in heaven and sun rising over it and I heard this scripture verse, "But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healling in it's rays (KJ version "with healing in his wings)," Malachi 4:2. When I told my pastor about this dream, he cited this verse before I finished telling him about it. God is awesome.


Your Christian Birthday
  
I've been a Christian since summer of 1992 when I repented at church and gave my life to the Lord. I got baptised on October the 4th of 1992 together with my sister and some other believers. Praise God!


Church Service Preference
  
I like the church I attend with my family. We have two pastors, because our congregation is big. Our brothers get together before service starts and pastor asigns 3 or 4 of them to preach (often he or the other pastor is one of them who preach). We hear brothers preach, sing songs and hymns of worship in between preaching, our choir sings. We pray also and end our first and last prayer with "Our Heavenly Father." If someone has a poem about God to read or a song to sing, pastor lets them.
