I Want Some Christian Friends
I am a Christian and find myself at this time of my life without one single friend. I'm married in my fifties. All I want is an online friend.

Husband Is Mean To My Kid
Why would divorce be the very first thought from a Christian woman? God hates divorce. Your husband needs counselling at best. You need to love your husband and respect him according to the word of God. You need to spend time with your son explaining personality conflicts don't always mean the other person doesn't like you, it's usually as simple as perception differences. As the wife and mother, you can take steps to gently bring love into the situation. You all need to understand how to communicate. If your husband gets defensive, it is because of the way things are being communicated. All of you are perceiving things and drawing conclusions based on wrong perceptions. Get counseling from a strong spiritual counselor.

Explain The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit has the heart of a child. He's very sensitive and can be grieved easily just like a child. He loves to play and have fun and show us who Jesus is. If the child is a girl, tell her Holy Spirit likes to play dolls with her. A boy, tell him Holy Spirit likes to play cars with him and tell him about Jesus. Now I know that's not all who He is but it's a start. You want to give them a good consciousness of Who He is.

How To Find A Godly Wife
He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. This scripture has been taken out of context so much by the church. How many men are married and are receiving favor from the Lord? Not many. They haven't even bothered to find out what it means. What this scripture means: finds a wife means "to bring forth the woman", "who she is" finds a good thing. When the man is bringing forth all that is good within her that God has created her to be and allows her to be that the husband obtains favor from the Lord. First, you'll know if she's the one. How? God will show you. You'll just know.

Why Does God Test Us
I recently had someone ask me "Why does God test us if he already knows the end result?" I know that God tests us to see where we stand in our faith but if he already knows what we are going to do why are we still tested? I dont question my faith I just believe....but for some reason the answer for this one didnt come to me. Do You have an answer :) ?

My Husband Desires Other Women
I have been married for 25 years and the husband is just like mine. We have 6 children, and he has cheated many times. God will take care of him, and don't blame yourself, because he is the only one to blame. He has self esteem. And to the men saying give them more sex, trust me, it wouldn't matter. They still will cheat and lust after other women.

Still My Wife In Heaven
My husband passed away 2/12/08 and i too had questions! here is what i concluded,from my readings of the Bible!
1) our FIRST spouse ,is our "true" spouse in God's eyes! no matter how many times we marry or even if they pass away!

2)once joined on earth,we become one (why we urn to again be complete as one)

3)when a married couple both pass and are in heaven, the woman returns to the mans side,from where SHE was created!

4)though there are no "NEW" marriages going to happen in Heaven,what God has joined together....will never be separated!

My understanding ,is that marriages(already joined by God) will continue,however no,"new" marriages will come about in Heaven!

Son Keeps Debating The Bible
This sounds exactly like my 21 year old son. He is driving our family crazy. I just told my Mom this might be a good thing. We all should be hungry for the understanding of the word. These could be preachers someday. Seek and ye shall find. We just have to pray for the answer. Some things will be known in when God is ready. I think your pastor should have understood that your son is being led by God to ask these questions. God made him like this for a reason. I was worried at first about my sons beliefs but I see now this doesn't have to be a bad thing. Blessed are those who hunger for the word for they shall be filled.

Daughter-In-Law Problems
I have a mean DIL. She is abusive towards my son. I did not want to see it, but i finally had to. She has alienated his family, a large family of aunts, uncles and cousins that he was very close to. He now does not come around. His wife was rude at each gathering and alienated everyone. All were good to them, giving, helpful. When my granddaughter was born, she didn't want my son's family to hold her, but she allows the maintenance man at their housing development to hold her. In time, I had to admit that she is mean, and insecure-feels threatened by our son's relationship with his family. My son is a different person. Gone the happy person he was, he's under stress, makes horrible financial decisions and has changed personalities.

Nations Not Heard The Gospel
Alan and Linda,
I couldn't find in the bible where it says that we will be judged on our knowledge. However, the bible says in Ephesians 3 v. 19 to know the Love of Christ which passes knowledge: that we may be filled with ALL the fuliness of God. God Bless You!

I Am Mad At God
Don..I'm sorry to read about your loss & for your pain. Pls. do not feel resp. The bible tells us that not even a sparrow falls to the ground apart from your Father's will (Matt. 10:29 NKJV) It is never right to blame God for anything, but rather to understand that we ourselves have misunderstood God. He loves you. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart(Psa. 34:18 NKJV). Remember..He so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son (John 3:16 NKJV) The book of Job shows us that Job was a righteous man. He suffered much loss, even wished he was never born, but in it all he never once blamed God. Turn to God in your pain & turn your blame into worship for the One who loves you. He longs to hear from you and to heal you.

Can God Forgive Repeated Sins
Our sins were taken care of on the cross, 2000 yrs ago before we were born (thank you Jesus!) And if we are baptized into the body of Christ (His church) by the Holy Spirit, then we know and are conscience of when we sin. It's like the Holy Spirit saying to us, "You're not really gonna do that are you?...remember who you are! You're the Righteousness of God!" Believers will sin...but they are covered by the blood, and God remembers it no more.

Can God Forgive Repeated Sins
No one on earth has a sin problem with God. Christ paid for ALL SIN, FOR ALL MEN, FOR ALL TIME...on the cross. The sin that we will be judged on is, Do you believe in Him that God sent? Period.

Friend Becoming A Mormon
While you are worrying about what to say, also worry about being the kind of friend you should be. It would be nice if everyone were always making decisions based on truth, but often it is based upon where they feel accepted, comfortable, loved, appreciated, needed, etc. A lot of times we worry about how we can preach better to friends and family, when we should be worrying about how we can better live as a christian and be an example of the believers.

Cheating Lying Abusive Husband
I have been in the same situation for 10 years. Today I found him having dinner with 2 women. We must have the self-respect & dignity for ourselves to pull ourselves out of such a dysfuntional mess. We are God's daughters. Just think about how our Heavenly Father is crying as He is looking at the lives we are leading. He did not create us to be abused, and cheated on. We must get out. I packed up his clothes and left them outside. I told him to go to his mothers home and that I was filing for a divorce.

I Just Had A Miscarriage

While I respect your right to believe whatever you want to, it has to be said that you have absolutely NO compassion. Who asked you to get on this blog and tell ANYBODY that is grieving terribly for their dead child that it is burning in hell? The Bible also says that we should strive to be like Christ and you are in no way acting like Christ. Christ had compassion...even for the non-believers.....ESPECIALLY for the non-believers. Go spread your poison somewhere else and leave all of us to our grief and our loving, compassionate savior.

Forgiveness For An Abortion
I have been through abortion myself and I understand the torment that you are going through because of it. You have repented and God does forgive you and He loves you so much! Your baby loves you, too, and will not ask why, because he/she is with Jesus. God would not want us to do what we did, but He was not surprised by it. He knew the choice that we would make and His arms were open to welcome our babies home. God forgives you and you have to forgive yourself, too. Live your life for Jesus and, though you may not have that child now, you will spend eternity with him/her.

Nightmares Mean Not A Christian
If you accepted Jesus Christ as your lord and Savior and repented of your sins and asked him to come into your heart than yes you are saved and sealed with the holy spirit. But that does not mean that you wont struggle with things. We have an enemy who roams the earth like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. He wants to keep us in the dark so to speak to be full of fear and hopelessness. He wants us to believe we are not saved because then we won't use the power Jesus has given us to fight the enemy with the word of God. While weeping may remain for a night, rejoicing comes in the morning! You need to surround yourself with people who can encourage you and teach you and who can pray with you.

My Husband Is Narcissistic
I was married to a Christian man who I divorced two years ago. It was my then 13 year-old daughter who begged me to leave him. 'I can't go on like this' she said. After he moved out and went to Christian counseling for a year, he was diagnosed as a 'pig-headed narcisist' and I filed.
Church people just don't get it, and I do imagine I will remarry someday.
God loves you, cherishes you and will carry you thru . . .
