What Is Your Purpose In Life
  
Yes, I know my purpose in life. My overall purpose in life is to praise and worship God. One way I demonstrate my purpose is by showing excellence in the work that I do. I am called to the occupation of teaching science to high school students. When I live my life by worshiping God through my job, I am demonstrating to hurting and lost souls that God is love by my everyday actions.

How Do I Love Myself
  
You are on the right road in that you are talking about your situation with someone. I hope it is a christian therapist. The next step is to forgive yourself. Find scriptures in the bible on forgiveness and the love of God. Then, mediate these verses. Also study and mediatate the letters of Paul especially Ephesians. Look for in Christ, in him, and in God scriptures. These will tell you who you are in Christ and what he has provided for you. Joy9988


Why Are We Called Christian
  
Jesus was called the Christ which means the annointed one of God. We are also called christians because we have the annointing that Jesus had on our lives. The term christian was coined by nonchristians after Jesus death to describe the followers of the Christ. They were viewed as being "weird" because they served and worshiped only one God unlike the people of that day and time. Joy9988


Should Christians Study Religions
  
I think you should study other religions only if you are well grounded and truly know what you believe. IF NOT, YOU WILL GET VERY CONFUSED and it will cause you to doubt your faith. Joy9988


Husband Wants Pretty Women
  
It's a tough position to be in. But, God does release a person from marriage when adultry has occured. I once heard a minister say forgive the adultress once if it happens again move on. Pray about it.

Will Crazy People Be In Heaven
  
Crazy? What do you mean by crazy? What determines or makes a person crazy? I think you might need to choose a better word. Some word that does not have so many negative connatations. Maybe, mentally ill might be a better choice.

I became a giver and stop being just a taker. Joy9988

Will you share the scripture reference you refered to about if a person emerses themselves in the Word, they will reap friends? It's a wonderful promise.

Why Are Many Christians Cold
  
I think the problem of christians being cold is a result of people being self centered and worldly. Most chistians do not walk in love and are concerned about there own space. It has to begin with each individual person. I recently left my church because of this same problem. I am now going to a smaller chuch with believers who are more mature in the Lord which is exhibited by the things they do or how they attempt to embrace the whole body of Chirst. Joy9988


The Foolishness Of Preaching
  
It means something as simple as speaking the Word of God can result in a person becoming born again and experiencing the forgiveness of personal sins. Joy9988


God Takes Bad Christians Home
  
I was living with one foot in the world and one foot in the church and God started dealing with me about my life style. I had lived all of my chistian life this way. God was patient with me until I had grown in knowledge of the Word and learned what was right and wrong. I was making some bad choices and was purposely walking in sin. God told me through the Word that I was going to follow him totally or my life was going to be shorten. I recommitted my life to Christ and I have not looked back. Joy9988


Diagnosed Parnoid Schizophrenia
  
I agree with everyone's comments especially Madison's comment about staying on his meds. It is also important for him to have something structured to do. It will be helpful if he can go back to school, get a job, or go to day treatment. This will help force his mind to stay away from his dellusions and parnoria. Joy9988


What Is A Spirit And A Soul
  
We are a three being person. You live in a body. Your soul is your mind, will and emotions. Your spirit is the inner part of you that communes with God. Joy9988


Determine Right From Wrong
  
Begin with the Ten Commandments and learning those issues where the Bible is clear. For those areas where you are not sure, learn to trust the nudges of the holy spirit. An affirmative nudge will be experienced as peace or ease. A negative nude will be felt as discontent, and frustration. When you are feeling pressured, it is an indication that the devil is trying to push you into a hasty decesion. Let peace and ease be your gague. Joy9988


Encouragement From The Bible
  
Psalms 68:9 (New Living Translation) God places the lonely in families. Joy9988
