Never Got An Engagement Ring
Too many Christians are so judgmental and critical. I purchase things for my husband not because he is materialistic but because I invest him, I care for him, I show him I adore him. Whether it is a pretty ring or a nice pair of shoes. . it does not have to mean a person only cares about material things. If is about wanting to feel worthy and loved. It does not have to be anything spectacular or exorbitant at all. Just a loving caring gesture that symbolizes affection and love. You guys are making this into something more than it is.

Should I Divorce My Husband
I've been separated for 5 months now from my abusive husband of 13 years. We can have boundaries in our marriage and stand up for good, refuse a pattern of evil. Abusive men do not want to give up their control and entitlement mindset. Don't ever get back together until you see true repentance, a long period of demonstrating a change of heart, like a year or more. You shouldn't trust him. Pray and let God tell you what to do for your own healing and restoration, no matter what your husband does. You can be free of abuse. God will heal you and make you whole. He'll tell you what to do. Stay in fellowship, seek christian counseling for your healing, and look up a christian women's support group for abuse in your area.

Christians Marry Muslims
Well you're not supposed to.Islam is a very strict religion and false religion.Unless youre a very dominant person. I'm married to a muslim man for 14 years and were very happy. But our children are Christian and they know that islam is a false religion. Islam is a replica of the Old and New Testament. But he always celebrate Christmas every year eith us which he loves! He doesnt get along with his family only with mine which helps alot.But if someone is going to get married with a muslim you just have to be very strong on your faith and like I said be very dominant! Don't be like those women that are weak and very naive.

Coworker Has A Critical Spirit
Perhaps you should begin with the person in the mirror, or as Jesus states it, take the log out of your own eye. People don't just turn on other people without some extenuating circumstances. Perhaps she feels you brag or flaunt the priviledges you have. ALL of your coworkers would not turn against you, if SHE were the one who was all wrong. Examine what you are doing to turn your coworkers against you. Have you tried being nice to this person, helping her to fit in. By your statement "I've been there 20 years" it sounds as though you are trying to elevate yourself at her expense. Try, instead, showing her you welcome her and are willing to help her fit in. You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.

How Long Was Your Engagement
My husband and I dated for 6 months before becoming engaged and married after 18 months of dating. However, we were friends for 11 years prior to our relationship becoming romantic, so we knew each other pretty well.

Fiance Isn't a Strong Christian
Perhaps you could spend time talking with and listening to each other during your engagement. Attempt to understand where he really is on his faith journey. Share your faith with him, not in an attempt to change him but to show what makes you who you are. If you love and respect each other and each other's beliefs, it shouldn't be an obstacle. If you've already done this and found that there are huge differences and no room for compromise on either side, then it might not be the right relationship for either of you.

Verbal Abuse In My Marriage

Obama Is Bankrupting America
Before Obama took office America was already a TRILLION dollars in debt.

My Husband Is Narcissistic
A possible word of hope to someone with a spouse like this. I have recently come upon some information about covert depression, which has a lot of the symptoms of narcissism and is treatable with therapy and anti-depressants. This is hopeful to me because narcissism is said to be untreatable, and covert depression is treatable!!! Those of us who wish to heal our marriages can insist that our spouses seek treatment for the possibility of depression - if they won't then the environment is too emotionally unstable for any child to live in. (trust me - i'm seeing the repercussions on my own children)I agree with the person who said she will stay separated and fast and pray. I do not believe this goes against God's word.

How To Properly Spank My Kids
IMO, you should never spank a child with you hands. Your hands should not be used as instruments of fear or pain. You should have a designated instrument, like a ping pong paddle or some other tool that doesn't have any sharp edges, leave a mark (maybe redness, but not bruising), or open flesh. You should only spank children for breaking a rule that has been discussed and understood. Spanking should reinforce that children are to obey your clearly established rules and when they break them there are consequences. Otherwise, you should use another method of punishment. You should not spank on bare flesh, you should spank their bottons w/ underwear as to protect from bruising. Afterwards, you should reinforce the the rule and pray with them.

Fate Of The Backslidden
According to Hebrew 6:4-6 we are enlightened as to the fate of those who believe there is multiple rebirths. V4 Iti s impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit, v5 who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of te coming age, v6 if they fall away, to be brought back to repentance, because to their loss they are crucifyig the Son of God all over again and subjecting Him to public disgrace.
So if salvation is not assured there is no salvation because Christ is the one who finished the job on the cross not us. He is not going to be crucified again for anyone who believes they can lose the gift that was given them.

Candidate For The Christians
I will vote for McCain based on his acknowledgement that life is sacred and should be protected. Also, he is a true American - he has not refused to wear the flag on his jacket and he stands with his hand on his heart during our National Anthem...he repects our Flag. He will get my vote mainly because of his stand for the sanctity of life, whereas the other one will lift all bans on abortion. God is the Creator and we must protect the innocent.

Questions About Revelations
There are two riders on white horses in Revelations. The first, which is the first of the 7 seals in Revelations 6 is the Anti-Christ. The second white horse of Revelations in Rev 19:11 is Jesus.

How Do You Pray
When I pray I pray for specific things. I think God wants us to be specific when we pray. I pray for my Pastor the sick to be healed for this nation. I also pray for family to be saved.

Interpret Revelation 13:17
the people have no other choice but to go into the stores because that is the only people here, if you read revelations #7, 14,15,16, ""we will come out", which means "exit" the tribulation, Jesus says our time is shortened, what Christ meant is we are out of here, before it even starts, a dash to clear out the stores, waters turning to blood -food supply will be short,stocking up their homes with water and food, that is why it was only them that John saw "shopping."

Is Slain In The Spirit Fake
As for tongues... the Bible is very clear on this practice as well.

1 Corinthians 14:5

1 Corinthians 14:27
If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course, and let one interpret.

1 Corinthians 14:28
But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church, and let him speak to himself, and to God.

If you are speaking in tongues - it had better be in private, or WITH AN INTERPRETER if it is in public.
