Funeral For A Non-Christian
My son just died from a drug overdose, and my pastor took the opportunity to bring a salvation message to the congregation. It was not a 'popular' thing that my son's friends wanted to hear, and one person even stood up and disrupted the service by saying "this is not what we want to hear" and then he proceeded to leave the building. I commended my pastor later for standing his ground firmly. He is called of God. His "job" is not to make everybody comfortable at funerals--his job is to try to bring those in darkness to the Light.

Divorced People Not Leaders
We are all sinners, saved by Jesus' mercy and grace. Did you raise your hands on the cross and have them pieced? Who are you to Judge? We are to love unconditional. Even broken Pastors, teachers and leaders. Each situation is different, some people may have been in abusive relationship or adultery and they are a broken soul. They still can be used of God to bring testimony and witness to others.

Where Did God Come From
I was asked that very question by a child & after saying all the pat answers I finally, in exasperation, prayed & asked God to help me. God then showed me a perfect ring, a circle. I then made my fingers a circle & asked her pretend this was a perfect circle ok. Now tell me where did this circle start &/or where does it end? She said she didn't know. So it is with God, He is like this perfect circle.

Blessings For Obedience
When God told me He wanted me to teach a class at our church. I gave Him many reasons why I couldn't. But I was obedient. The Wed. before Easter we explained what giving your heart to Jesus meant & did a Q & A time to make sure the girls understood it. Then 11 out of 14 girls gave their hearts to the Lord that very night. (The other 3 had done so before, but 1 girl rededicated her life.)

Blessings For Obedience
Although the girls started out very shy & didn't want to pray out loud, by the end of that class every girl wanted to pray & they were truly excited about it. So I was doubly blessed because of my obedience. Being able to see all those girls give their lives to Christ & giving the world more prayer warriors. I personally don't think it's obedience when it's easy for me true obedience is when it's hard & or a sacrifice, but that's just my opinion.

My Husband Is Narcissistic
Thank you for the good advice you have listed on how to live a happy life while married to a narcissist. I have been married to my husband for over 35 years, and while the children were young and at home they kept me going and happy. Now they are grown and gone and the narcissistic traits are so bad I have been very depressed and sad for loss of being loved by my husband. I will make the Lord my husband and lover of my soul, and look to Him each day for the joy I need.

Plan Of Salvation
I believe this plan is best answered in 1 Timothy 2:3-6 where God says He wants ALL men to be saved, that IS His plan.
This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all menthe testimony given in its proper time.

This Is The Year Of Over Flow
In our church this last few months 1 of my best friends eyes were healed after wearing glasses for many yrs. 7yr old Joshua had a disease that Drs said he had a few hours to live & although the healing is gradual he's alive & getting better. 1 lady who was vomiting blood went to the hospital & she too was given, but a day or 2 to live & God intervened. She's alive & giving testimony to her drs & our church.

Preach 10 Commandments
The 10 C's are a mirror that shows us that we are all sinners. Yes,it's God's grace that we can be saved, but I think people 1st need to see the need of a savior before they'll want one. Romans 7:7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, "Do not covet."

Volunteer Work With Others
I've volunteered at my son's public school for 6 yrs & have taken my Christianity with me. When we eat lunch in the cafeteria we pray before our meal. And I still say God bless you when someone sneezes. I think that God needs to be in every part of our lives & I try to bring Him with me wherever I go & because of my openess about God as my friend I've many opportunities to share & invite people to church. Many people are more open to having a "relationship" with Christ than is believed.

Online Marriage Tips
I also agree with the date night. Praying with each other helps to bring a very intimate bond & it also helps with the 2 becoming 1. Finding little ways, as well as big ones to demonstrate your love by putting the other first & make it a daily habit.

I Used To Love My Husband
Romans 12:18-21 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay,"says the Lord.On the contrary:"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Church Signs Cause Church Growth
I saw one last which read,"Without Christ in Christmas makes it hollow days".
Another I like is, "Life is a test & there is no cheating, however it is open book".
"Will the road you're on get you to my place? signed God"

Do Smokers Go To Heaven
over eating...obesity, eating disorders, lack of excersize, not eating enough veggie and fruit, not eating organic food, eating too much fat or sugar..... Do all obese or cholestrol filled christian go to hell? That would be approx. 50% of christians. Perhaps Pastors need to add to the good news that you need to go on a diet and quit smoking.

Pastor Has My Sister's Attention
Depends how old your sister is. If she's under 16 (some would say under 18), then it's definitely wrong.

What Would God Say To You
I think we should all stop focusing on what God might say if we get to meet God, but instead focus on doing whatever we can to help people. Money goes a long way, but it's love that makes the world go round.

Catholics Believe Mary Was Sinless
I am not of the Catholic faith but if Mary was sinless then she would of died in our stead not Jesus. God found favour in Mary, she was a virgin.
