What Are Orthodox Churches
  
I grew up Romanian Orthodox. They believe in the apostle's creed. Pray to saints much like Catholics. Preists must marry. Basic theological difference from Catholics is where does the Holy Spirit come from (Father only vs. Father and Son). Salvation through works and faith.


How To Properly Spank My Kids
  
I think a wood spoon is fine for the older boy, and your hand would still be effective for the youngest. The 5 yr old should have underwear down as he is old enough to know right from wrong, but the youngest can still have his spanking on his undies. never spank in anger and pray with them when its done. I wish you luck and god bless,
Michaela


Techniques For Spanking Your Kids
  
I'm a single mother of two wonderful boys. I have tried all other methods of punishments and found what works the best is a good bare bottom spanking. I use a sandal sole on the youngest and a brush for my oldest.


Percentage Of People Saved
  
Let's forget about the babies, the Bible is not crystal clear on this. My original question was about fraction of people saved, say people who are old enough to make a decision. I was looking for some Biblical insight as to why the road to heaven as Jesus depicts it, is so narrow, and only a "few" find it.


What Are Orthodox Churches
  
They most certainly are not a cult, much less one of Catholicism. Have you personally investigated their beliefs, and gone to their services? Bible verses are sung and they're all over the liturgy. I am evangelical now, but growing up in the Orthodox Church, and my grandfather having been a PRIEST, I know that there are saved Christians in there.


Percentage Of People Saved
  
Whether babies are saved until of age I don't know, it's just an assumption. My hope is that more than "very few" will have traveled the narrow way. It bothers me that angels, w/ full knowledge, achieved a 67% success rate. We should be close to that if we had full knowledge. If not, that does not make God less attractive - maybe Satan is on a too long a leash?

Can Autistic People Love God
  
I believe they can understand, especially through their SPIRIT, if not intellect too, as someone pointed out. However the relationship part will probably be one-way (God gives- they receive) as they are self-centered due to the brain structure (low-functioning mirror neurons). Not true of the down-syndrome, whose mirror neurons function ok-they can love others in return. My son is autistic, but I don't expect him to love me back.


Does This Make You Cringe
  
I think it is a warm gesture of humanity. So many people are afraid to show their feelings, lest they may come under some sort of scrutiny. The Bible characters all hugged each other and greeted one another with a kiss. If it is permissible in the Bible times, I think it stands for modern-day Christians as well. I see nothing wrong with this at all. I completely embrace this as a warm human gesture.
