How Often To Praise God
  
Josef, I don't see how Zechariah 4:6 relates to praise.

Cluny, Psalm 119:164 and Psalm 119:62 are about praising and thanking the Lord for his righteous Law. Do you have this kind of high regard for his Law? I thought that Christians in general hated the Law, except as an evangelistic tool.


How To Meet Believers
  
KarenD, I often hear the retort, "But my church is great! We truly serve the Lord with great attitudes!"

Unfortunately, based on what I have seen, it's a matter of perspective. Of course, those who are "in" would think that their church is great. But those who are at the mercy of the "in" people might feel differently.

In short, Christian church membership is in decline in general. There's a reason for this. Hence, everyone's churches cannot be "great".

Adetunji, I agree that God will show us were we belong. But, even then, people still need to learn how to get along themselves (i.e. learn to practice Biblical love themselves). Hence, my original question.


How Often To Praise God
  
I don't know. I understand the need to show gratitude to the Lord for what he has done for me. And I even understand and appreciate the concept of praising him here and there.

I just can't believe that people who claim to praise the Lord all the time or have an attitude of praise all the time can be genuinely doing these things all the time. There is a time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) and different circumstances require different attitudes, focuses, emotions, and so on. You just can't go through life stuck in one gear.

Also, I don't see where the Bible *commands* *the individual* to praise the Lord all the time. Sure, it *exhorts* *us* corporately to as an ideal thing to do, but I don't see it as a *command*.


How To Meet Believers
  
Scott1, I thought that Biblical love is not self-serving (1 Corinthians 13:5)?

Finding people who have similar self-interests and fellowshipping over them can be great. That is, until your similar self-interests become not so similar and you turn on one another. To me, that's a recipe for creating fellowships which exist on borrowed time from the start.

Cliques come, then go. And I'm sick of it. :-(


Praying For A Soul Mate
  
I've waited, and waited to the point that I'm tired. I'm tired of believing when there are no prospects. The men out here are liars, don't believe in God, etc. How can I continue to have faith in an area when my faith is depleted. I know that God can do all things but I have doubts whether he will send my mate.
