Did Paul Replace Judas
Paul didn't replace either one of the Judas'. He was never intended to be a replacement. He had his own ministerial duties he fulufilled.

Who is David Jeremiah
I have been a member of Shadow Mountain Community Church for more than 30 years. I have experienced Dr. David Jeremiah's teaching in the pulpit and friendship on a social basis since he has been the pastor of the church. Pastor Jeremiah is extremely generous, in fact he donates his church salary back to the church and lives on the other sources of income he generates (like the books he writes, etc.) He has a wonderful heart for Jesus and is truly the real thing. Anyone who says otherwise should spend a few years with him and then make a decision.

Christians Do Whatever They Want
So many Christian act like they can do whatever they want because: some believe in "once saved always saved" (Which is wrong.)And also because of the flesh. You must die to flesh, and surrender to God! Dying to flesh doesn't mean that your physical body must die, just the selfish part of you, the part that wants to put yourself beefore others, which goes against God's word, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Explain Genesis 6:3
I always thought the 70 years was a curse on the Jews in the wilderness because of their disobedience to go into the promise land.
Man used to live for hundreds of years but because wickedness was so rampant
God really gave man 120 years to live -according to Gen 6:3. Of course environment, how we take care of ourselves etc comes into play.

Continue To Spank My Teenager
How awfully sad that you are unable to take the time to discipline them without hitting them. It is unnecessary to ever hit a child ( or anyone else for that matter). My three children have never been hit and we have always been complimented on their excellent behaviour, gentleness and empathy for others. What they did and still do have are clear expectations, boundaries and a good example from their parents. The example YOU are setting for your kids is that it is ok to use violence to make people do what you want.
Btw, the word 'discipline' means teaching, not punishment.

Thanks Rhonda....
You make a good stand. I do desire God above man. PERIOD. My heart still loves Mark and I do pray that relationship is restored. He is a man that loves the Lord and he did realize his sin. I believe that is in part a huge reason he walked away to get his own heart in proper alignment with God. We both had to get there. God is a jealous God and I to believe that we can have no Idol above him. I desire his truth as well. I agree also after all of our discussions that we are to submit. God tells us to submit to the authorities.Marriage is part of our government. We are not married until the document is signed. I was speaking "becoming one with" due to our sin. BUT FACT REMAINS.. IT WAS JUST SIN! Thank you.

Exzucuh: You are right. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. That is why - when we sin - WE ARE TO REPENT AND TURN AWAY FROM THAT SIN - to stop sinning.... I don't mean to start a conflict here and Christians don't have to argue with one another. The act of fornication is SIN.. PERIOD. My only question was the fact that I feel a greater bond to the man which I was getting ready to marry than I might have had with him given the issue of such deep intimacy. I believed and still want to marry this man..... I only wonder if the Lord feels that we became one at that moment. I don't know. I'm not God. He tells us in Proverbs to not be joined to a prostitute for don't you know you become one with them.......

In response to the reply about getting my sins covered...... My fiance' and I confessed our sin - went to the Pastor for counsel and turned from the sin nature of our relationship. I do have an intimate relationship with the Lord. He has forgiven both of us for walking in the flesh and it is cast as far as the east is from the west..... Because of JESUS - I am justified - Because of God's grace and mercy ( PRAISE GOD) I'm also forgiven. I will not live in condemnation for that does not come from the Lord. Conviction of sin comes from my Father as well as discipline. I'm walking out discipline right now....................................

Thank you everyone! I do still feel committed to him in my heart. I'm praying God reveals his truth to Mark's heart. If Mark refuses to honor his promise to me.... Thats between Mark and the Lord.....

Thank you again!

You all made valid points.
I know we were both wrong.
But I still believe he is the right one.
Only God and his perfect timing will tell.

I do trust that God has only GOOD PLANS for me as long as I place him first and love with him with my whole heart, soul and strength.

Thanks for your words,

Thank you all for your response.
I just still have faith that he is the right one. I have caused him lack of faith in me because I struggled with submission areas, faith in moving from my family to be with him. Its not all his fault that he walked away. I'm just having a tough time walking in faith while I wait upon the Lord. I do trust that God has only GOOD PLANS for my life and has forgiven my sins. Thank you!

Is The Bible Real
We all must study the bible and it's origins! Very important! Do not be afraid to question the bible, there is no question too big for God! Jesus walks on water Matthew 14:22. Telling people not ask questions is like telling them to find a different religion! Luke 2:46 After 3 days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Writers, philosophers, and historians all agree, haha! Cornelius Tacitus, Lucian of Samosata, Suetonius, Pliny the younger, Thallus and Phlegon, Mara Bar-Serapion,Josephus, the four Gospels. He existed, whether you believe his teachings is a whole other issue!

Church of Christ A Good Church
I am a baptized believer that fellowships with the Church of Christ. While I don't think that it is exactly like the first century church (what church is?), I do think that they try to follow the Bible.

Speaking In Tongues Today
1) Thank you Frank! I'm glad you got it! Actually God showed me that deeper revelation of the scriptures in Acts after one night I was listening to a very well known Baptist preacher on the radio, preaching that all those in Acts 2 were speaking in a language only already known on earth, and that there was no such thing as an unknown, heavenly language. I was very upset, because I knew this seemed in error, so I went home, got down on my knees and prayed and asked God to show me if I...

My Husband Just Left Me
I am 35 and the mother of 6 kids.My husband left today. I don't know if he will ever come home. I do believe that with prayer and the support of friends and loved ones we will be ok. I will pray for you, stay strong and take care of yourself spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Praying Offensive To Some
I have never had that response, but WHEN it happens (I'm sure it will as well) I won't be offended myself because I just don't go for "the bait". Be offended is a trap someone else puts you in. Anyway, they may be offended (and trapped) because they don't think they need anything from anyone else. Many nonChristians are self absorbed, so don't take it personally!
