To Clam: I don't think it is for you to judge. If a crying preacher is bothersome to you then find another preacher you like better. There are some issues that need to be left to the person and the Lord to work out.

When a preacher uses a planned amorphous fake-cry in every sermon it, discredits his words more than enhances. Would you consider it manipulative speech?

To Spoons: The best sermon, the best witness is lived more than spoken. A person who lives by the Scriptures is wise, and admired by others.

What is most effective way for me, to get people interested in a spiritual life with Christ? Having faith in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit has made me powerful enough to be resilient in defeat, strong enough to be gentle, and open minded enough to be happy. How do you turn rejection into reception? ...to share the blessings isn't that a part of the journey?

To Clay: First if the person's anger results in physical violence, get to a safe place without words or notice, immediately. Hurt people, hurt people. When a child gets hurt they cry. When an adult gets hurt they often get angry instead of crying. The Scriptures teach that we should trust in the Lord, cast our cares to him, to be peaceful and composed. It is easy to allow displaced anger to upset you, but remember a person who is chronically angry is perhaps sick (bipolar)or just immature . For some people anger is a learned behavior for intimidating others into submission. In any case it takes two to have an argument don't be one of them. Just remain calm, and ask yourself what would Jesus do? Agree to disagree, but don't go to bed angry. If you will pray, Christ will provide the peace he promised to you.

How would you deal with a person that has severe anger management problems and often uses the Scriptures as a weapon?

To Mum: From my understanding of the scriptures I would suggest that if a child is acting under the guidance (or by example) of a parent the burden is upon the parent. If the child is mentally capable to be accountable and acting outside the training of the parent, then the burden would be on the child.

Are children responsible for their sins or are the parents held accountable?

To Jif: Taking ones own life is not the one and only unforgivable sin the Bible refers to. A sin is a sin but the consequences of the various sins do differ.

Among all the sins that people commit is suicide the one unforgivable sin that the Bible refers to?

To Adel: Without a second thought.

Would you trade your life on earth for life in Heaven, today?

To Whiz: The Scriptures condone prosperity but not greed or usury.
High profile people must take exceptional risk aversion methods of travel; a corporate jet helps to maintain the demanding schedule of such people.

The Bible says a camel would have better luck going through the eye of a needle than a rich man getting into heaven. Why is it that the Christian faith is so opposed to wealthy people? There are a lot of preachers flying around in private jets and no one seems to put them down for it.

To Crank: That would not be possible for me because God, my savior, and heaven already exist, and have a life within me. The Scriptures offer an abundance of wisdom, and a benchmark for the rules of self discipline that if followed will guide any person to a life of less suffering and more happiness. No regrets.
09-06-2014 11:45:22 AM CST
What if you live your whole life then find out there is no God, no savior, no heaven? Will you have regrets?

In an ideal world your suggestion would be plausible, however as long as there is sin in the world it just ain't gonna happen.

The two most common desires among all people worldwide are Happiness and the Reduction of Suffering. Why then can't the people of the world unite to focus on those two goals? Does someone always have to win and another lose? Can't it be a win, win, solution?

To LadybugJo: The definition of Hell is defined and described in the Scriptures. I do not add to, or take away from the Scriptures. Thanks to the sacrifice of the Lord, I will never experience it first hand in the eternal life.

To Tumbleweed: Unfortunately, more people go to hell at the end of the day than go to heaven. The prospect of an eternal life of bliss in heaven is far more motivating than the threat of burning hell. To have faith costs nothing and the rewards are infinite.
08-29-2014 7:05:53 PM CST
Most people don't seem to see the prospect of Hell as an impacting incentive to change their ways. What would you suggest?

To Drummer: If you are in discord with someone and refuse to forgive them, even if they don't deserve your forgiveness, then it is you that is tormented with unhappiness, bitterness, and grief. By forgiving someone and moving on with your life, you can be the loyal follower of the Lord, and once again enjoy your life without burden. Cast your cares to the Lord, and live a happy, happy life.

God will forgive our sins if we ask in prayer; we're suppose to forgive people who have sinned against us without them asking. Please explain.

To Wildchild: The law of God's nature - You will reap what you sow, greater than you sow, and later than you sow.

How come it is: when I do good things for people, better than good things happen to me and when I do bad things, worse than worse things happen to me?
