Can I Pierce My Nose
  
William,
Hi. I just want to ask you one question. What has the Lord put on your heart to do in regard to your nose piercing? Let me remind you that the Old Testament was under the law. The New Testament is all about grace. Our righteousness isn't from works. It's about receiving Jesus and allowing him to change us from the inside out. Not about setting up rules and regulations and living up to the shoulds, oughts, and musts of those around you. If this is a conviction he has put on your heart to change, be obedient. If it comes from anyone elses value judgement on your appearance then it's not the Spirit of grace and love behind it. Only people motivated by a religious spirit will be focused on external appearance.
God Bless,
Zoe


Rapture Of The Church
  
Rhonda - you don't think we have freedom in Christ? The truth shall set you free. You don't think we have the right to choose, ie free will, even if that choice is wrong? Aren't we still to love one another even our enemies?


Rapture Of The Church
  
I am going back to one of the earlier comments about whether the Rapture occurs pre or post Tribulation. Since no one knows for sure, we ought to be ready. I think the Lord has made it vague for a reason so as to test our hearts. Are we willing not only to watch and pray, but to know without a doubt that we will not receive the mark or the number of the beasts name for then we shall be under God's wrath. We need to know we are willing to die for the Lord no matter what. He is looking for his people who love him with all their heart, mind, soul and strength and to follow his commandments.

Do End Times Scare You
  
Fear comes from the persecution that will take place to those who keep the word of God.
In Rev 14:10, it states that anyone who takes the mark of the beast will be under the wrath of God. For those who don't take the mark, a great persecution will take place where they will be put to death and even beheaded Rev 20:4. In Rev 15:2 those Christians who overcome the beast, the mark and the number of his name will be glorified with the white linen robes, they will sing the song of Moses and sit on the throne reigning with Christ 1,000 years.
My concern is that Christians are not being told the whole truth of the matter as to what is to come and will not be prepared. A great falling away will take place which will have lasting consequences.


I Have A Miserable Marriage
  
Hi. I am sorry you are going through such a hard time and would like to lend a helping hand. When I was married to my husband, my pastor told me that on the 3rd and 5th year, every 5 years will be a struggle. So year, 3,5,7,10 ect. and that praying will be the only solution to our success. Also that you need to take the moment you fell in love and hold on to it for the rest of your life, and any momment you rekindle your love there after. I have a book I read and pray to, "The Power of a Praying Wife", by Stormie Omartian. This is the best thing that I could ever have recieved. Talk to your pastor and figure out what is best for you and you family, and may God lead your path! God Bless you!


How To Share God At Work
  
If you obey God, and act as He would want you to, and let your light shine, they will ask, they will wonder, and God will open up a way for you to share!


Youth Pastor Relations Acceptable
  
The bible makes it clear we are to respect the laws in our country. One of them is about having relationships with minors. As much as that law is referring to sexual relations, it is still there for a reason. At 16 we are not prepared to make decisions regarding the rest of our life! And I would also worry about that youth director, what would a 31 year old want with someone who is 16?


Unbelieving Christian School
  
If your friends are urging you to do soemthing you know is against God's will, then are they really your friends? LOOK for the good positive friends you could have in that school! They are there!


How To Stop Tattoos
  
I got tattoo's before I came to know God, and I don't regret them. They allow me to minister to others with tattoo's and peircings on a level that someone else may not be able too. So don;t think of tattoo's as all bad, God says He uses ALL things to the good of those that love him, even tattoo's and peircings!

Mega Church Pastor Salaries
  
Part 2- And Joel is helping to bring people to God every day, can any of you say the same? I praise God that there are that many Christians in one place. oh yeah, and you know the only church in Houston to open it's doors to Katrina victims is Joels church? Pretty horrible pastor, isn;t he? What a horrible congregation to be paying a man that works like he does!


Mega Church Pastor Salaries
  
Oh yeah, and I go to a mega-church, not quite the size of Olsteens, but up there in size, and I can tell you that my pastor makes a very modest income, and the extra stuff that he could make maoney on that the moderstor says they use to make millionaires of themselves, well, guess what my pastor does with that? Gives it back to the church so the church can do more ministry work.

Moderator - And God will reward your Pastor accordingly. What is the name of the church because we need to applaud those that do things in a Godly way as they set a proper example for the rest.


Mega Church Pastor Salaries
  
What does it matter, and do you disclose your salary to people? It's is really none of anyones business, especially with the weight that man carries. Think of the huge flock he has to tend, and how HUGE a responsibility he has for them, since God has put it on him to lead them! Whatever it is he is paid, I am sure it is no more then a normal pastor in a smaller church!


Do You Understand The King James
  
Personally, I use a KJV study bible, it explains the words that I may be confused by, or passages, by using the original Greek and Hebrew meanings! I also have a Strongs I consult when confused!

Does God Tell Us To Be Perfect
  
Oh man, perfect? If anything God tells us over and over it is impossible for us to be perfect. In this passage it is not refering to perfection like God, it is referring to perfection in our completeness. It is telling us to possess "perfect"(complete) love like Jesus.


What Church Do You Attend
  
I attend Olive baptist Church. I love my church, that is my family there.
