My Infant Son Died
I have a friend who just today grieved the one year anniversary of the passing of her baby. When I got up this morning and saw her post on facebook, words began to come to me while I wept with her. I will put them here for you also:

A tiny face and tiny body,
Two tiny hands and feet,
Rest expectantly in the arms of an enormous God
Waiting for the uniting once again.
Tears will be wiped away
And sorrow, once known so intimately,
Will turn to endless joy.
And the years long past
Will fade in the discovery that you have always been here.

Explain Luke 8:12
Romans 12:3. Christan, one thing I don't do is make up Scripture.

Signs And Wonders For Today
Gideon, in Judges 6 verse 13, asks this very same question. Notice the answer the Lord gave him and then note Gideon's response. Gideon has trouble grasping who God has created him to be (was hiding in the clefts of the mountains like a chicken) and the Lord comes along and calls him a mighty man of valor. What???? That's because He sees who He has created us to be. We tend to look at our own strength and abilities.

Why Did God Give Us Free Will
Love always gives a choice. If there had been no choice, God could not have been love. No free will leaves us all robots with no choice but to serve God...but He desires for us to love Him because we want to, not because we have to.

I Don't Understand Revelation
That book starts out with the five words "the revelation of Jesus Christ". In other words, that book is about the unveiling of Jesus Christ in His body. Not a scary thing at all really. I could give you some examples of the redemptive view of that book. If you are interested, please contact me through my profile linda9974. My personal e-mail address in in there.

Church Clubhouse Mentality
Not properly discerning the body of the Lord Jesus, which leads to pride. Usually you hear more about the denomination and its doctrines than you do about Jesus. That's a warning sign.

Overweight Female Relative
Show her the unconditional love of the Father instead of trying to change her.

Can't Get Enough Of God
How wonderful it is to experience God in being born again! And that hunger for Him....don't let anyone take that from you. It is a precious pearl indeed to have that hunger. Now that you have taken a step in experiencing God (the water gate), now it is time to take a step in excellence (the Ephraim gate) and get grounded in the word of salvation so that no voice will ever cause you to doubt that you are saved.

Christians Follow Worldly Holidays
If I celebrate Independence Day, I celebrate the Christ who freed me from the prison of Adam's disobedience. If I celebrate Thanksgiving, I celebrate the Christ who gave all to be thankful for. It's not about the holiday. It's about the heart of the one who celebrates.

What Do We Obey In The Bible
We are free from the law of sin and death and bound to the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, the law of liberty, the law of love, and the law of faith.

Why Ask Personal Question Here
Elsie, I believe it is because of fear of condemnation. Most, instead of pointing to who Jesus is and what He has done, seek to point an accusing finger of judgment instead of allowing the ready writer of Psalm 45 to use the tongue, which is even a small member but able to bridle the whole body, as a pen to write grace on the heart.

How Do We Walk With God
I should have added that there will be righteousness, peace, and joy when you are walking with God. However, there is something better than walking WITH God. There is God walking IN you.

Keep Exgirlfriend And Engaged Girl
It probably wouldn't be wisdom in action.

Atheist And Unbeliever Difference
Nothing. They are both outside of Christ and dead in Adam.

What Is Valued Most On The Sabbath
The fact that they are "IS" raelites and not "was"realites or "will be"ites ;) On a more serious note, the Sabbath was the day that no servile work was to be done. They could cease from their sacrificing to rest. I praise God that Jesus has already made an end to the sacrifice and oblation.

How Can You Go To Hell
You are right. Not accepting Jesus as Lord is the only sure fire way of spending eternity in hell. What some folks would say is that the person who committed suicide is going to hell because he/she didn't accept God's help at that time. I would be willing to go so far as to say that each of us every day in some form or fashion reject His help.

I Don't Understand Revelation
A working knowledge of the Tabernacle of Moses and the Feasts of the Lord is helpful. Also, the only way to understand the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is redemptively, that is, through an undestanding of the person and work of Christ. Christ and Him crucified is woven throughout every book of the Bible, including Revelation.

Pope Received Standing Ovation
I don't think He would want it or even hear it if it took place. He doesn't seek the praise of man. God inhabits the praises of HIS people.
