Can I Marry An Old Man
  
There is nothing wrong with marrying an older man, but there are things that you need to consider down the line. Right now he may be very spry and in good health, but the time comes when his health will go down and you will still be in your prime.

My mother married a man 20 years older than she and I can't say that it was a happy marriage. My father died when he was 82 and she was fairly young and still had a lot life ahead of her. My father was very ill for the last 15 years of their marriage and she had to care for him.

I take it you have prayed about it and both of you are Christians. That is very important. God Bless.

Is Church Important To You
  
So many churches are into big business. Didn't Jesus say to his disciples that when they followed Him they were not to take anything with them, but rely on the generosity of the people they came in contact with.It is non-denominational, God is the head of the church as well as Jesus. We are self-supporting through our tithes and offerings. We are governed by the New Testament and Jesus teachings , but do much studying from the Old Testament. Yes, my church is very imporant to me.


Should Only Men Work Not Women
  
I agree wole heartely with Jody. If a couple is happily married, and contrary belief by some, there are happy marriages. If there are young children still living at home the wife should stay at home and raise them and they should live within their means. If a wife wants to work after the children are in school and the children are not latch key children, then I think it's alright.


Celebrate The Easter Bunny
  
Ray, aren't you being a little harsh? Everyone has their own opinion and I think we should be able to express it without being critized. As for the Easter Bunny, can anyone show me in the Bible where it is mentioned regarding Easter Sunday? I believe this was started by the pagans and we as Christians aren't pagans.


Praying For A Good Wife
  
I have been a widow for almost 19 years and I feel as though it's not the Lord's will for me to re-marry. I feel as though God has other plans for me. I have prayed for a a good Christian gentlemen friend, but when I prayed I prayed for God's will to be done in my life. So far He hasn't come through. I think acceptance is the big answer here. On the other hand I have reminded God that I'm not getting any younger. God has given me acceptance.


What Is A Real Church
  
To me a real church is one that bases it's principles on the Holy Bible. One that is friendly and greets new comers and makes them want to come back. One that teaches anyone that wants to be baptised before they are baptised. So many people are baptised and join a church before they even know anything about the Bible. They find that they are going to have to give up their wrong life styles and they aren't ready to give them up. Christ, and only Christ, should be the leader and head of any church.

Can Our Prayers Be Bad
  
I think it depends on what you are praying for. If you're praying for God to get even with someone for you, something that goes against the bible. Depending where your heart is.


Are Roman Catholics Christian
  
This is something I've wondered myself. They worship and pray to others than God and Jesus, such as Mary and Joseph. The bible says not to add to or take away anything in the bible, yet they have added and taken away from the original KJV. I was raised a Catholic and I never felt right about it. I couldn't understand how a mere man, such as the priest, could say our sins are forgiven. I feel as though God is the only one that can do that.


My Boyfriend Is An Atheist
  
faye4464, you have my sympathy and I praise you for what you did for your fiance. Yes, I believe he is with Jesus.
Stephanie: I wouldn't push him, but just be an example of what a Christian is like. Has your preacher talked to him anymore? Does your boyfriend ask you any questions regarding Christianity? If you don't know the answers go to your preacher and ask him what to say.


Bush Adds 20,000 More Troops
  
I am dead set against this war. Milaki is not going along with his agreement. Bush is wanting to send 21,500 troops in addition to the 132,000 that's already there. As long as we are there the Iraqi's will never do anything. I say bring them all home and if Iraq wants to invade us at least the 132,000 plus will be here to defend us.


Celebrating St. Patricks Day
  
I don't know if it's a Catholic Holiday or not. The Catholic's do celebrate it and they really know how to party. It originated in Ireland and is a real holiday there. I have never heard of St. Patrick and I believe the Catholic Church are the only ones that honor saints.


How Can I Find A Date
  
Aren't there single men in your church? There have been a lot of people who have met and married men that they have met online. The only problem is you really have to be cautious about it. See if you can find any Christian Single Groups in your area and online. You don't state how old you are, which might make a difference. As for myself I've been a widow for 17 years and can't imagine myself getting married again.


Verbal Abuse And Drinking
  
I went through the same thing only my husband was the alcoholic and was verbally abusive. I think verbal abuse is worse than physcial, with physical abuse the bruises go away but the mind has a hard time giving up the mental abuse. The only way that I was able to cope was through prayer and regular church attendance. Without the Lord and Al-Anon I couldn't have made it. Go to AA and maybe your husband will go to Al-Anon.


Brother's Wife Having An Affair
  
I wouldn't give any advice. I would certainly let the husband know what his wife is doing, advice can sometimes backfire on you. If I was married and my husband was running around on me I would want to know. Maybe there is something that he is doing that is making her want to stray. Just pray about it and for them.


Was She Really My Friend
  
I agree with Grace. There is an old saying that says "it takes two to tango." No, she wasn't a friend, especially since she invited both of you into her home during this time. There is a trust issue here. Matthew 11:25 tells us that we should forgive others so God can forgive us.


I Can't Locate A Single Man
  
I know exactly what you mean. I myself am not looking for marriage, but would like to find a nice single gentleman for friendship and some dating. Aren't there any single men in your church? I think we all have our standards in looking for a gentleman and if they are in accordance to God's will, don't settle for anything less. Maybe you're trying to hard.
