Origins Of Prosperity Gospel
Their beliefs come from the Bible.

"Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." (3 John 1:2)

"I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it and it will be yours." (Mark 11:23,24)

Moderator - However, DoryLory it must be the will of the Father. Key part of the scripture left out.

My Virgin Left Me
Your ex-girlfriend demonstrated a serious character flaw. How will you ever feel that you can trust her? You don't need the doubts this situation will cause to hang over you. If you were one of my sons, I'd recommend moving on. There's lots more fish in the sea.

Homeschooling Advice For Mom
I have four sons and we're in our ninth year to homeschool. In all honesty I don't know if there is such a thing as inexpensive curriculum. I live in Canada and don't know if it's the same everywhere but you could ask around about a local homeschooling fair where people sell their used supplies. This would likely be the time of year for one. My boys had learning disabilities so I could tell what worked best for them. Other than that all I can say is good-luck! Homeschooling has many rewards ... it's something I'd never regret doing. But it's lots of work for mom/teacher!

My Son's Church Attendance
Sometimes you just gotta trust Him!

You know your son better than anyone. If he's just expressing reluctance, I'd try to encourage him to go ... because we always feel better if we go to church (at least that's what works for us). We recently had to change churches to find one that better suited our kids (a VERY difficult but necessary decision). I think you need to hear from God on this one.

Questioning Her Salvation
Being straight forward is an indication of temperament not salvation. Many people are intimidated by straight forward, in-your-face type people who usually see everything as white or black. If you two get married this is only one of many issues the two of you will have to adjust to, in order please each other. Welcome to the world of marriage!

True Christian Men Put Down
Women are emotional ... they have not been designed to lead. They are designed to nurture and help. Men are designed for strength. It's only logical that strength would make a better leader than emotion. But with the leadship position comes responsibility. Men must practice and train themselves to put the needs of their family before their own. Because when it comes to family relationships, no one's going to follow someone who doesn't lead in love with a serving heart.

Should I Continue To Win Love
It depends how long you've been waiting for her. Clearly she does not reciprocate your feelings at this time. One of my brothers-in-law waited a year before my sister finally developed feelings for him greater than friends. In the end she appreciated his patience and his "pursuit" (but he hadn't been overbearing ... she was simply aware of his feelings). I agree with WIVV, it may help keep things in perspective if you go out with other girls while you're waiting. Don't wait forever.

Is This A Myth Or A Joke
I was raised Catholic and I've never heard of such a thing.

My Prayer Life Is Weaker
If you separate yourself, to spend some time in prayer and fasting, that will likely take care of what you're experiencing.

If you have a hard time motivating yourself to fasting, seach out the scriptures about fasting and meditate on them for a while. Also, get some teaching tapes about fasting and listen to them over and over until the desire to fast comes alive in you.

Stop A Word Of Knowledge
You could ask the person if they would mind writing out the "words" rather than speaking them to you. That way you would be free to discard them later. Why does it take a lot of prayer to free yourself of these words? Are you going by how you feel? Meditating Scripture about authority would probably give you more confidence here.

How To Show Your Spouse Love
Gary Chapman (a Christian counsellor) discovered that we all express & perceive love in different ways. It's possible to do kind, loving gestures to our spouse but unless we know what specifically speaks to their heart, it can be a hit & miss situation. Mr. Chapman has discovered a very simple way to discover what your spouse needs to feel loved & appreciated. Every married person needs to read his book ... "The Five Love Languages" (also available on video). (Do a Google search for more info.)

Spouse Has No Passion
1 Peter 3:1-6 tells women who have husbands that need to be "won over" exactly what to do. For clarity, I recommend studying it in the Amplified translation which is available on the Internet at the Bible Gateway website, if you don't have a copy of the Amplified Bible available.

What Is Meaningless Repetition
This verse answers itself. "Vain repitition" is referring to speaking the same words as though God did not hear you the first time. It is not saying that all repitition is wrong, it is saying that to pray out of ignorance or to pray and not have an understanding of how prayer works, is vain (empty, powerless).

Why Did Jesus Have To Die
Pt 1
Immediately after God created man, He gave dominion (authority or rulership) over the earth to man (Genesis 1:28). When Adam was deceived, in Genesis chapter 3, he consequently handed his God-given authority over to the serpent and Satan was suddenly promoted to "God of this world" (2 Cor 4:4).

Since God gave dominion (rulership) of the earth to man, it was therefore necessary that a "man" take that authority back from the deceiver.

Why Did Jesus Have To Die
Pt 2
That's why Jesus had to come in a body of flesh and blood. Jesus came in the physical nature of man and He "shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death - that is, the devil ... " (Hebrews 2:14). Jesus had to become a man so that He could die. It was only by dying WITHOUT SIN, that He could break the power of the devil and thus gain back the authority for man.

Divorce Husband Over Church
Mary, I mean this with all due respect ... get a grip dear lady! Your husband is attending church with you, talk about the perfect setting for God to get a hold of his heart. Now that you are aware of where is he is at spiritually, pray that God's spoken Word would come alive to him and pierce his heart. Pray that God would reveal Himself to your husband and change his life. God is BIG! This isn't a difficult request for Him.

Has God Forgiven Me
Take Him at His Word. What He says He will do, He WILL do. You just have to trust by faith. After a while it will get easier.

Think about it this way. Without His forgiveness you will likely become stagnant in your Christian walk. He wants you to grow and become spiritually strong and mature (Hebrews 5:11 - 6:1). You need to receive His forgiveness for your own well-being and so that you can accomplish much in His kingdom. So receive it by faith and don't look back. Keep going.

How To Fall Out Of Love
Fear may be motivating your best friend. Some men are just afraid of commitment. In those cases, a separation will often help him realize that life is actually quite lonely without his best friend. Just as Kady said, the state of your relationship as it is, is not healthy for you.
