Is Drinking Wine A Sin
  
MARTY: You are so very welcome!


Mega Church Pastor Salaries
  
TT . . . thanks for your post. When Rick Warren's book was so successful, he also paid back all the years of salary that his church had paid him! That had to be a substantial amount. I believe he is a man of integrity and certainly is not doing anything that could even be remotely called "fleecing the sheep."


Do You Know Others On ChristiaNet
  
I have met several people on Christianet although not on these blogs. Some have become prayer partners and close friends through emails and phone calls. I've met some in person. Each one is cherished. Two special friends are Karl and Alicja (married couple). Karl has become like a big brother/mentor to me. When I have theological questions I go to him and get good answers. The special person in my life I also met on Christianet and was not looking nor expecting anything romantic. God is good.


Affair With My Wife's Sister
  
I agree with Bob. Maybe you could get your wife to go to counseling with you and tell her there. That way the counselor would be there to help her deal with this devastating news. Not telling her at all is like trying to cover up a huge pus infection with a bandaid. You can never get the marriage healed that way. (Sorry for the gross description.)


Should We Honor A Request
  
I just moved into a new neighborhood 7 months ago. A couple next door are not Christians. Their daughter and son-in-law is. When I met the daughter at a birthday party she told me how much her parents loved me. They do NOT want anyone talking "religion" to them. Yet I see true joy in seeing me. Then yesterday the man let lose a cuss word and immediately changed it. He has never done that before, in fact at times it seemed he would deliberately see how bad he could talk.


Should We Honor A Request
  
Continued: When the husband had a heart attack last month, she seemed grateful that I was praying for them. Neither one was raised in church and now they are elderly. I think people do not want to hear how much we know about anything, including the Lord, until they know how much we care. I have honored their request not to talk "religion" but I still pray for them and love them.


A Short And Ugly Man Likes Me
  
Think of it this way . . . would you want someone to marry you who didn't love you and thought you were unattractive? Do you think you would be able to make him love you or be attracted to you? No, you wouldn't want that . . . . you would want someone who adores you and thinks you are very attractive. He deserves no less. He deserves to be loved and thought adorable by the one who marries him.

#2 Don't ruin his life! Please! Tell him that you can only like him as a friend. Then let him go and don't keep stringing him along and giving him hope. That's cruel. I wish you the very best and I will pray the Lord give you just the right words to say and give you peace.

Kathyr:
Did you read all three of my posts? Also, how can you trust what someone says on the internet? They could just be smearing a brother or sister by distorting the facts. I will try the other search engines though. Thank you.

Kathyr4453 I googled David Wilkerson, Hannah Hunnard and got nothing. Then I googled just Hannah H. and found things on there claiming her books were new age. Then googled David Wilkerson and found many good sermons by him, none of which were New Age, etc., in fact he was against the Word of Faith and the Prosperity gospel peaching, but I found a link to someone who claimed that the person in charge of his school used the Hunnard books etc., etc.,

# 2 Kathyr I do appreciate you telling me about this, and it makes me very sad. As for David W. predictions of what will happen to New York City and the USA, in fact 9/11 was pretty close to one of his sermons . . . and they still could happen. Some of the things prophesied in the Old Testament did not come to pass for 100s or 1000s of years later.

#3 Kathyr
I did not know that Hannah H. was a universalist. I read her book, Hinds Feet on High Places at least 20 years ago, and to me it was her learning to trust in Jesus and let go of her fears . . . it was a metaphor, not a lesson on how to be saved OR reach a higher consciousness. The Word says that the enemy of our souls will come against us in whatever way we are weak . . . if he can make us afraid and depressed, he will . . . anything to get out eyes off Jesus, our Hope, our Lord.


God Called Me To Sing
  
Oh MY! When I first saw the title of this blog I thought it read: "God called me to sin." I must be very tired. LOL. Reading the bickering on here makes me even more tired.


Who Is Art Katz
  
Kathyr - I have been receiving David Wilkerson's written messages every 3 weeks for years and NEVER have I concluded from reading them that David W. thinks we attain our salvation thru suffering. I don't know where you got your information, but it is wrong.

#2 to Kathyr and all: David Wilkerson is NOT a universalist, nor in any way shape or form New Age. I very much dislike seeing someone attacked and falsely accused.

New Agers Believe: 1)The God of the Bible is not the God of the universe. 2)There is no need for salvation. 3)The Bible is not the inerrant word of God. 4)There is no need to be a student of the Bible. 5)Spiritual encounters need not be tested against the Bible. 6)There is no need whatsoever to be linked to the body of Christ. 7)There is no need to walk under the spiritual covering of a pastor.


Who Is Art Katz
  
#2 New Agers . . . accept all religions except Christianity or anyone who believes that Jesus is the only way to heaven. They believe we have arrived at the Age of Aquariuas, (left the age of Pices -the fish which stood for Christianity). They want to intune themselves to any spirit except the Holy Spirit of God. They believe Christians should be removed from the earth . . . and they believe they will evolve into perfection and peace.


Graham Family In Prayers
  
Augusta: I have lived many years just a few miles from the Grahams home and for anyone to say that Billy Graham attended the Presbyterian church because Western North Carolina is predominantly Presbyterian and it was just for convenience is just plain silly!

MARTY: You are so very welcome!


Is Drinking Wine A Sin
  
ALAN - Marty is incorrect. Please see the posts below from me to Marty explaining the difference between a Nazarene and a Nazirite. Nazirites took vows to not touch wine, wear their hair long and other things. Please read. Respectfully, Gena8493
