Husband Died Of Cancer
You feel like part of you has been ripped apart. That is because of the verse where the Lord says they will become one flesh My beloved left this earth in may of this yr I've wrestled with the Father on this. How could God get the Glory over my husband dieing of cancer. Well them a dear sister in the Lord gave me a scripture. Precious in the site of the Lord is the death of one of His saints. And I said to myself. He never said how death would come but that it is precious to Him I have heard the Lord tell me he's waiting for me with my parents and that he's eating from the tree of life and more Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. I hope my story helps. Love in Christ )

Christian Home Schooling Best
Yes! Homeschoolers, on average, outperform public school students by 30 to 37 percentile points in all subjects. (HSLDA)

Even if that were not the case, isn't our children's eternal state the most important thing?

Homeschooling presents real-life opportunities vs. being locked inside buildings that increasingly resemble prisons. Age-segregation makes children extremely peer-dependant.

My daughters (homeschooled) have interacted with people of all ages in various social situations from volunteering at a food pantry, singing at a nursing home, volunteering at a hospital, working in a family business, 4-H, choirs, drama, church, mission trips, and much more!

Did Jesus Drink Alcohol
Of course he did. It was culturally acceptable to do so. Andy is right. If Jesus didn't, he would have been ridiculed for abstaining. He wasn't. The Bible mentions that John the Baptist abstained. Why? Because it was unusual not to drink alcohol. The Bible tells us not to get drunk. It doesn't say we can't have a drink.

Christian Smokers
Depends on what their hearts look like. Men look on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart. After I was saved, I smoked for 1.5 yrs, because I was addicted to nicotine. But I cut down and eventually stopped with encouragement from Christian friends and the Lord's help. Was I still saved while I smoked? Yes, no doubt about that.

Work Any Job
What are your personal convictions concerning bartending or gambling? Also consider that you may be contributing to others habits and addictions.

Having Thoughts For A Pastor
This man is not available. It's not possible for the two of you to be together. Its totally ok to say you think the Lord is leading you in another direction or something like that. Attraction is a very powerful thing. So are thoughts and human sexual desires. Move on before trouble and the enemy has any opportunity to mess with you or this pastor.

Questioning God
David questioned God all the time in Psalms. I think God is big enough to handle our questions no matter what they may be.

Is The Bible Made Up
The love of NO man is worth your eternity. There are true believing men left in the sea yet. Perhaps, fish for one of those and save your faith.

Unmarried Girls Having Kids
That's great, if that's what you want to do, be a father figure to a small child. Every child needs a male and a female influence somehow. That's just the way God set the family unit up. If you begin doing this though, know that you are making a long term commitment to the child. Don't start something you're not willing to finish. Better that you never entered the child's life at all than pop in and out or start a relationship with them and opt out a little later. Pray about it. It's a commitment.

What Will Heaven Be Like
Personal opinion: What do you like? What are your favorite things? I think the Lord is happy to give us the good desires of our hearts. My favorite color is blue and I love the smell of honeysuckle and lilac. So, naturally, I assume these may be accommodated. Reciprocally, what are God's favorite things? I assume these will be accommodated by us as well. What will we do? Created beings in heaven have specific assignments. I think we will too. Gabriel is a messenger, Michael, a warrior. Some angels praise and I imagine some are builders, helping Jesus prepare places for us in heaven.

Husband Has A Girl Friend
Counsel, possibly separate. "Just friends" is not acceptable for a married person. Weren't the two of you just friends when you first met before you were married? Just friends can lead to more. Let him know that as a married couple just friends is not acceptable unless you're included in the lunches too. Try not to demand he change his behavior. Ask him why he thinks its necessary to be meeting her for lunch? Here's something else to consider (a bit on the painful side, but) is there some need she's meeting for your husband that you're not? Open communication perhaps? Quality time? Fun? Just a thought.

Cheating Lying Abusive Husband
Physical abuse puts you in danger and his infidelity could mean STDs for him or you. Seek assistance from a womens center for abuse. They can help you. Of course you love him, but love is not a reason to put up with abuse. He needs to change and you sticking around is not going to facilitate the changes that need to take place. Separate for your own safety.

Identifying False Teachers
A good group of people to connect yourself with are those who preach and believe in Christ crucified, raised from the dead and ascended into heaven. The focus needs to be upon Jesus, since he is the centricity of the faith.

Play Music In A Bar
Jesus hung out with tax collectors and prostitutes. All the world is a mission field. There will always be those who disagree with the means employed to express the gospel. We're not here to be in a popularity contest. God can use anything-- and he does! Should we be surprised at that?

Pastor Designates His Salary
Where is the governing board? Elders? Deacons? They should agree upon the pastor's salary, not the pastor. Somethin' ain't right there!

The End Of Christianity
Would Christianity cease to exist if the Resurrection of Jesus was proven false? Why or why not? Maybe. The resurrection of Jesus is what makes Christianity stand out from all other belief systems out there. No one else can say their God was raised from the dead.

Thinking About Being Obedient
It's a man's God-given job to be responsible for headship of the family and home. It's awesome for men to be able to do this. They get to fulfill what God designed for them to do and the wife experiences so much freedom in letting him take his rightful place. Let him do what he was wired by God to do and get some new girlfriends who want to enjoy the blessings of being under the cover of godly protection too.
