I Am Afraid Of Death
Please know that God loves you! It's ok to be afriad, Jesus understands our fears and accepts us, fears and all! He lived a human life! We are human! Someday we will live in our enternal bodies, but that is not today. Today we can call upon Christ with all of our cares and fears! He will take them and make them his, even when we can't ! Our God is awesome! Everyone's journey with Christ has a beginning and we are at different stages of that journey, the beauty of this journey is it is always growing and never-ending ! God Peace!

Who is Bishop Eddie Long?
Prior to September, I had never heard of Mr. Long, nor had I read any of his books, listen to any of his sermons or attended any of his conferrences. After learning about the allegations, I was very uncomfortable and very troubled by Mr. Long. I am personally against becoming wealthy preaching the word of God. We are to store up heavenly riches opposed to earthly and prosperity Is spiritual and not tangible. My prayers rest with the victims, Mr. Long and finally all his followers. I must digress...

Is Obama Or BP Responsible
The suggestion that Obama could in any way be responsible for the oil spill is ridiculous at best and absurd in reality! Put on your thinking caps people.

Church Of Drunks and Drug Users
Well, let's see. The Bible mentions that Jesus ministered to prostitutes, the demon-posessed, the blind, and the lame. He was also accused of being a friend of drunkards. Wasn't it Him who said something to the effect that it was the sick who required a physician? Sounds to me like the people you mention are in desperate need of a Savior and I say AMEN! Nothing wrong with this picture.

Why Are Christians Mocked
The bible states over and over again that we will be persecuted. People will hate us just because we love Christ. We know this but keep our faith through it all.
Why should the devil mess with the other religions and cause people to come up against them? They are already hell bound why would he put effort into messing up their lives when they are doing to work for him.

Marrying A Younger Man
I think people have a problem with it because it's just not in the norm for older women to marry younger men. I myself wouldn't want to marry someone more then 10 yrs older or younger than myself. Most of the time maturity levels just aren't there. When you both are younger it's ok but your going to be 80 when he's 70. When you start getting up into those ages there are probably going to be some big differences. Wait until you are 60 and he's 50 your going to see it. My parents are divorced now but my dad is about 10 yrs older then my mom and I see the difference. He's all tired and she's full of energy. He just wants to sit around and read and she's ready to go. You have to think about the later yrs as well as current ones. Just pray about it.

Should Spankings Be Illegal
I don't know but I don't see any reason why adults shouldn't get a spanking. Lord knows I'm 33 but by all means my Dad should turn me over and paddle my behind. It shouldn't be illegal for parents to spank their kids. The problem with kids these days is that parents aren't loving & consistent with discipline. I look at my kids and thank the Lord for them. But they are extremely loved & disciplined children. I use appropriate form of discipline for bad behaviors.

Name Some Good Worship Music
oh man I'm all into praise and worship. I've got a bunch. my favorite artists are
All spellings of names may be slightly off. Spelling wasn't one of the gifts the Lord gave me. hahaha
Jaci valeasquez
Martha Munuzzi
Bryon Cage
Eddie James
Amy Grant
Nicole Cemolen
Casting crowns
These are a few to get you started. Bryon Cage's music got me through a lot.
Like his songs "Presence of the Lord is here" & "I still say yes".

Pray In The Holy Ghost
Yes this is what it is referring to. To speak in tongues you have to be filled with the Holy Spirit. For this is who is speaking. A lot of people "religions" don't believe in this. This is one part they decided they didn't like and don't practice. Though if they read their bible you are not to add or take away from the word or disbelieve one word of it. They will argue with fleshy comments, thoughts, but they can't argue with the Word.
1 Cor. 12:7-11
Deu. 12:32
Pro. 30:6
Eph. 6:18
2 Tim 2-15
I can go on and on. As in 2 Samuel 22:31 says "...his way is perfect, the word of the Lord is flawless..."

How To Properly Spank My Kids
I've never pulled my kids pants down to give them a spanking. Just use your hand or belt of paddle and give them a few good swats on the behind. Don't ever spank in anger. Now remember spankings don't have to hurt that bad. Just hard enough to let them know it was done and not to do what ever it was they did to get it. My dad never gave me a good spanking as most would call it. He just firmly patted me. Never hurt...but it got to my heart. I would be so upset in myself that I would do what it was that caused my dad to be disappointed with me to, have to spank me. Now my mom on the other hand would light me on fire.

How To Lose Your Salvation
Once saved always saved, can't continue on with your sinful ways. If you are a born again Christian you have to strive at turning away from your sins. When you sin you are displeasing the Lord and removing yourself from him. When you sin, truly repent and remove that sin from your life.
You can go to church every time the door is open. Sing all the praise and worship music you want. Quote as many verses as you like bet as sweet as pie and act Godly,but...if you are sinning openly or secretly your removed from God and removed from your inheritance into the Kingdom of Heaven.

Honor Mother And Father
To honor your parents is to not speak harsh to or against them, not act harsh against them, do not be disrespectful to them. Take care of them when they are unable to care solely for themselves. Be a companion, a friend, a caretaker, a child love them with all your heart. Whatever their need may be. Realize the gray hairs on their hair is a sign of wisdom. Proverbs 16:31 says "Gray hair is a crown of splendor, it is attained by a righteous life. and Proverbs 20:29 says " The glory of young men is their strength, gray hair the splendor of the old."
Listen to them they still have a lot to teach.

My Daughter Is Dying Of Cancer
Christ died for us so we wouldn't have to die. That wasn't meant physically. We all die physically he meant our soul. With him we will live.
Trust in Christ, he's there for you. This is the time to use the word of God and show your daughter what she is to do. Tell her she needs to accept Christ into her heart. To repent.
Tell her that life without Christ hurts not a death with Christ. Because a death with Christ IS life.
God bless you and your family.

Is Gambling Wrong
Yes gambling is wrong. Why because it leads to things that aren't favored with God. It is focused on love of money, wealth and greed. The bible warns us about the love of money and greed and get rich quick schemes. Like in these passages Proverbs 13:11 Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.
Proverbs 23:4 Do not wear yourself out to get rich have the wisdom to show restraint.
Ecc. 5:10 Whoever loves money never has money enough whoever loves wealth in never satisfied with his income.
1 Tim. 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.
Heb.13:5 Keep your loves free from the love of money and be content with what you have,

How Did You Get Saved
When I decided to turn my life over to Christ and left him lift me up and carry my burdens was a breath of fresh air. I realized I didn't have to be so hard, take care of everything all alone. It made me feel light. That's the best I can describe that moment. Now when I was baptized I received the Holy Spirit and THAT was AWESOME! I kept praising him and in came this wonderful tingling, warmth all powerful feeling from the top of my head to the tip of my toes like it just cleansed me through and through. My body, mind and spirit. I suddenly could not control my speech and out come this language I had never before spoken and I knew I should not fight it allow myself to be consume. I felt power, love & total cleansing.
