Pestilences And Plauges
  
Yes >

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
. And lean not on your own understanding,
. In all your ways acknowledge Him,
. And He shall direct your paths."
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . (Proverbs 3:5-6)


Coronavirus And Christians
  
One feature of this virus is it can have very hard effects on elderly people. But if we are older, now we can be more mature and know better how to love, so we are examples for younger people, not helping younger ones to grow up fearing old age and thinking old age is horrible and to be feared.

But in the past we have had older ones who have been helping younger ones to fear old age. So, forgive such ones and do not be fooled by them. With Jesus, now we can have His joy,

"and your joy no one will take from you." (in John 16:22)

Repent of how we have not done this, and give our attention to God, instead (c: Trust God, and prepare to die well . . . however He has planned.


Actions Of A Christian
  
"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain." (Philippians 2:14-16)

What is justified is that we stop our arguing and complaining, so we can learn how to love and be good examples for our younger ones . . . and for each other.

Arguing and complaining are not justified, but anti-love.


Long Marriage Wait
  
If you do not trust him, I would say you do not need to even consider marrying him. I am surprised how ones can say they so love each other, yet they do not trust one another enough to talk about what they are concerned about. Ones are afraid of how a companion will react, instead of being sure the person loves them and therefore they can share with the person about personal things.

Jesus makes us able to love so people can trust us by talking with us about our issues. But if I am trying to use you for something, I might not be kind and supportive when you bring up things that can get in the way of how I want to use you.

Has he been using you for immoral activity? Love does not have us just using anyone.


Crush On Youth Pastor
  
In the United States there is a more than fifty percent divorce rate, even among ones claiming to be Christians. You can do well to find out how you, too, can be able to fool yourself, and depend on our Heavenly Father to get you into love with a really genuine person.

Ones fall in love with how people look and act and talk nicely. They fall in love with what they want to use some body to get for themselves.

But Jesus says, "If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." (in Luke 9:23)

If he is a really sound person of God's love, you love him and others by supporting him to be good for others as well as for you.

And trust God for who you belong with.


Examine Religious Experience
  
Here, of course, we do not have the space for reviewing videos. But you can share samples of the experience you wish to share about, with us, here.

And we can discuss them in light of Scripture. The Holy Spirit can include us in helping you with this.


Greeting Cards Via Mail
  
It can be more thoughtful than e-mail and text messages.

If you are a kind person, you can do it in a kind way (c:


Jesus In The Upper Room
  
Well, Lynda . . . hi, and God bless you (c:

Yes, Jesus appeared to His disciples in that upper room where they had the Lord's Supper together. Because Jesus is not conceited. So, yes Jesus has personally appeared to people. Jesus is so superior, yet not at all conceited, but loving and caring and generously sharing. So, yes He came to this earth in order to reach us and save us and so personally share with us.

But now Jesus is appearing,

right inside of us ! ! !

Now God's children have "Christ in you, the hope of glory" (in Colossians 1:27).

But it does not say that Jesus appeared to them while they were praying and waiting for the Holy Spirit.


Pastor Asks His Wife
  
Hi, Patrick . . . I am Bill . . . pleased to meet you . . . God bless you (c:

In my opinion it can be good for a man and his lady to share their issues and help one another to make godly decisions. It can be a time to share what is going on, to get one another's input from God through each one . . . so they are sharing as His family.

But it can be good to have other people helping, too.

She can be an intel source, of course (c: but in a good way.

My lady friend helps me to keep a compassionate perspective about how I see people and find out how to relate with them. I suppose a pastor's lady can help him to keep on track in our Father's family caring and sharing way of taking care of His people.


An AKA Hello
  
God bless you, too, AKA (c:


Satan On Over Drive
  
arguing and complaining which ruins people from finding out how to love in our marriages and our example to help our children know how to relate in close family sharing


What Is Your Truth
  
Jesus is "the truth", He says in John 14:6

And John says "the Spirit is truth", in 1 John 5:6.

Also, we have that Jesus is "the Word" > John 1:1. I understand this means Jesus is all which God's word means, in Personal Form. And the real truth is how God has us becoming like Jesus and living the way God means by His word.

So, the truth is not only about ideas and explanations. But we seek the true reality of how Jesus in us has us becoming and loving and pleasing to our Father.


What Is The Church
  
The church is Jesus Christ's one body.

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body, and be thankful." (Colossians 3:15)

So, we who are the church are called to submit to how our Heavenly Father rules us in our hearts. This is included in living as His church > "in one body", Paul says, here.

So, the obedient church is the people who obey how God personally rules each of us in His own peace.


How To Protect Family
  
When I was a kid, I chose two cute girls to be my girlfriends, and my father praised me for having such good taste. But because of how we learned beauty discrimination, even at home, at school we could look down on and pick on girls who were not so cute.

In choosing who to date and marry, it appears that many men judge a woman by what she looks like, in order to decide if she is desirable. And women, even, try to use looks to hook a guy.

But the bait you use can be what chooses the fish you catch!

"rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:4)

We need to teach children how to love.


How To Protect Family
  
"Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation," (in Philippians 2:13-16)

So, arguing and complaining are against how God wants us to live and to relate in His love. These can help to break us down and keep us weak. And our own bad example and abuse of arguing can do more damage than evils from outside the family can.

Our own good example can help, then, with prayer trusting God.


Baptism Spiritual Effects
  
Jesus says >

"'Therefore, whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father in heaven.'" (Matthew 10:32)

If we use baptism to confess Jesus before men, He will confess us before our Heavenly Father.

We need how we "were baptized into His death" > Romans 6:3. Paul does not say "into water", but "into His death" which came before His burial. So, I see this does not mean burial into water, since burial came after His death.

Possibly, in His death, we are living in His love which made Him "a sweet-smelling aroma" (Ephesians 5:2) to our Father while also having hope for any and all people > love "hopes all things" (in 1 Corinthians 13:7).


Baptism In The Epistles
  
After Jesus had been baptized by John the Baptist, Jesus said >

"'I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how I am distressed till it is accomplished.'" (Luke 12:50)

Then Jesus asked James and John if they were able to be baptized with this baptism of Jesus, and they said they were able.

And He told John and James, "'with the baptism I am baptized with you will be baptized", in Mark 10:39.

I understand that John and James had already been baptized with water. This baptism was talking about something else.


Failed System Of Socialism
  
Typically within two generations history is forgotten. Communism in Russia fell almost two generations ago. In addition, most high schools don't have an economic class, therefore students are not taught the basics. Look at Sanders and AOC who don't understand Economics 101.
