Wonder If I Will Ever Get Married
Trust me, marriage isn't all tv sitcom happy go lucky occasionally serious. Marriage changes EVERYTHING!! And not for the better. I would not recommend it unless u r 100% that u r 100% sure it's the right person. I know this b/c i thought I was but the next day i knew I wasnt ready and he wasn't the right on. That was 4 years ago and I'm stuck now

How Much Church Entertainment OK
I don't think the issue is what motivates you to STAY in church. The question is how far should you go to attract unbelievers to church.

Exactly emg! Church is for both the saved and unsaved! Where in the world did we get the idea that church is ONLY for saved people?
We have salvations in our congregation EVERY week - thank God! People may show up for the donuts but the preaching of the gospel draws them to salvation. I don't care WHAT motivates them to come, so long as they do.

So, people are trying radical ideas to spread the gospel - and it's clearly freaking a lot of you out. Maybe it isn't your thing (it isn't MY thing btw), but who are you to say that it isn't what God has called them to do?

And jana, yes, there are churches that are trying to reach the lost, but I see a lot of churches who have adopted the "us four and no more" motto. The frozen chosen - who do nothing to bring people to Christ. When I say nothing, I mean NOTHING.

Who Watched Da Vinci Code
People in banks do indeed study counterfeit money!
Understanding that the Davinci Code is based on the gnostic gospels - which even unbelieving historians refute as total bunk - and understanding that Dan Brown states things as fact that are not, makes it very easy to make a compelling case for Christ. Like it or not, people ARE questioning the validity of the Bible and the church needs to supply answers!
Josh McDowell has a fantastic anti-Davinci book out btw that is selling for $1!

Who Watched Da Vinci Code
I didn't watch the movie, but I did read the book. People are watching the movie and reading the book and asking questions. Understanding the premise of the book and movie has made it very easy to argue intelligently against something that is chock full or errors and lies.

There are soooo many churches that do NOTHING to reach the lost. People are dying and going to hell every minute of every day. If by chance, an unbeliever is drawn to church by something that is not "holy" or "religious" and in the course of going, they hear the Word and receive Christ, then the ends justify the means in my opinion.
I'm curious, was the "entertainment" part of an illustrated sermon - did it have a point?

My Wife Hits Me And Wants Others
Stop making excuses. This is a drama queen. People can say it is this or that. If someone treats you badly get away from them. Let them find a willing victim to put up.

I Need Encouragement
Faith works exactly like a muscle - the more you work it the bigger it gets. Unfortunately the only time you really get to work your faith is when you're in a storm! So, this is your opportunity to grow spirtually and take new ground. That's what James meant when he said to count it all joy when you fall into various trials - he knew that the end result is a stronger, tougher Christian.
