94 Year Old Accepts Christ
  
Praise the Lord! A wonderful testimony!


Can We Make Images Of Jesus
  
Looking at the scripture you quoted, the answer is a No. neither should we make images of Mary or any apostle or angel.


What Is Free Will
  
2#God alone does not equal salvation because God does not need to be saved and a relationship is necessary for salvation, not an imposition. it takes 2 free wills to form a relationship. 2 not 1. Your worst statement is this: "Our God is not willing to save everyone." I don't know what god you are talking about but John 3:16 is one of the millions of biblical proof that isn't true for the true God. On the other hand there is no biblical support for your statement...


Apostle Paul In Fifth Dimension
  
No offense, but you obviously did not understand that passage. Paul was talking about someone he knew who had a powerful vision knd of like someone I read of who saw heaven in a vision.


Do We Live By The Word
  
I don't get the question.


Is God All Sovereign
  
Another portion of the bible says that God is impartial. Contradiction? NO; he whom God will have mercy on is anyone who humbles himself before him. But what he is saying is no selfish person should question his goodness because he knows what He is doing...you know like someone thinking because he's been in church 5 years, he will receive more favor that the much-more-humble-than-him new convert next door.Con't...


Christians Can't Sin
  
A Christian CAN sin, because aren't we still humans, frail and weak? However CAN is not the same as WILL. Every Christian has sinned after becoming a Christian. However, a Christian, only by the power of the Holy Spirit, can come to a place of complete obedience and live above sin from that time on till death, or at least for an extended period of time. It is not true that EVERYONE sins daily.

(Warning, Bruce: you are about to spark the fury of Eloy and the counsel (more gentle) of Morgan.)


Was Judas Following God
  
Jesus chose Judas because he was a theif...read the bible. Jesus purposely chose a very bad apple so that the devil could work through him when the time came. if Judas had been chaste, Jesus would have chosen someone else for that role. God discerned Judas' character not created it.
Judas was doing Satan's will...but God had a plan to use Satan's will against him (Satan didn't realize what Jesus' death would accomplish).


Young Women Marrying Older Men
  
Ouch...Ashley.


Man Puts Work Before Family
  
My first comment didn't get posted: I asked why so many people were shouting at cassandra, even some women. A family needs more than money. Many fathers make the mistake of focusing more than is appropriate on financial provision. The result is disastrous, especially for the children who feel uncared for, when that was all the father meant to do.


Do You Witness Often
  
Mima, is it our job to create the conversion. Aren't we supposed to witness and let God take care of the rest?


Confess My Affair To Husband
  
Dear Robyn, no offense, but your advice is very wrong.

Donna's advice was right on.

You MUST confess to your husband...it's not a choice for righteousness. That's where the bible talks about confessing sins one to another. God cannot completely forgive you if you don't because you will be covering sin from whom you sinned to. But pray that God would touch your husband to forgive trully. You think about it.


Can Salvation Be Lost
  
OSAS people say if by sin you can lose salvation then Christ died for nothing, and then they say if you can lose salvation then you must be sinless to be saved. I'm sure they do not know this scripture:

1 John 5:16: "If anyone sees his brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. There is a sin that leads to death. I am not saying that he should pray about that." ...


Can Salvation Be Lost
  
#2 ...For example, if you commit fornication or adultery, even once, you immediately lose your salvation...but it can be reinstated by God's mercy. But if at that moment you don't repent and you die...hell would be your home, no matter how many years you've previously been saved.


Once Saved Always Saved
  
"If anyone sees his brother commit a sin that does not lead to death, he should pray and God will give him life. I refer to those whose sin does not lead to death. THERE IS SIN THAT LEADS TO DEATH. I am not saying that he should pray about that."

1 John 5:16


Are Birthday Traditions Pagan
  
**Are Birthday Traditions Pagan
Is celebrating one's birthday or birthday traditions considered pagan?**

By "Jehovah's Witnesses", they are.


History Of Christianity
  
The devil is busy planting lies.


Unrepented Sin Unforgiven
  
Duane, so you don't ask for forgiveness when you know you've done something wrong?!

Gary, your conversation with God was beautiful, but He didn't say that unrepented sin will be forgiven. Whether or not you ask, if you are still harboring the lust of sin, then you are still guilty, otherwise you are forgiven if you trust God. But then there are different degrees of sin...and there is sin unto death, where you really need to repent and confess to him outloud for mercy (1 Jn 5:16) such as adultery


Man Puts Work Before Family
  
"If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."
1 Tim 5:8

"A greedy man brings trouble to his family..." Prov 15:27. (I'm not saying the man is greedy... This scripture is also figurative or poetic in application.

"He must manage his own family well and see that his children obey him with proper respect." 1 Tim 3:4
