Is your faith based totally on the Bible or is there something more to it, such as a personal relationship or passion; something internal that motivates you to worship God? What if there was no Bible would you still believe, have faith?

To Marbles: Okay just stop right now and think about it. The very first chapter of the Bible says in the Beginning God created ...The Bible is a book set of wisdom that will help you through life and all it's complexities. In its wisdom nations have prospered and in its rejection, nations have crumbled.

I want to believe everything I read in the Bible, but my mind just can't seem accept some of the stories as factual. Any suggestions?

To Click: His motives were pure, but his methods were lousy (sinful).

Is Robin Hood a good guy or a bad guy?

To Shotgun: Sure he will. To repent means to change your ways. As long as your trying to do better the Lord will work with you and help you overcome the sin issue you are working on.

I have a sin that I can't seem to shake. I repent with all sincerity, but then I do it again. The frequency is getting less but will God forgive me over and over for a habitual sin?

To Beets: If you will live your life emulating Christ to your best ability, when your life on earth is finished, this will be a better place for your having been here. I pray you will take these words to heart and share them generously.

I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do. Can you tell me?

To Chess: In this life you are going to encounter all types of people who use dishonest and unscrupulous ways of doing business. Most of them use the confidence man approach; telling you what you want to hear and even providing you with some small gratuitous services to gain your confidence in them. When you accept them into your trust, and they learn your vulnerabilities that is when they will strike you for all they can take from you. It is not possible to always avoid these shyster types, and don't expect that you can have any long term trusting relationship with them. One common tactic they use is to make everything happen so fast and without any records that you can't keep up with what is going on, or they will bury you in non-sensical paperwork. Attorneys and Insurance companies are infamous for this. I suggest you be as articulate as possible in your logs of every event or dealings; take photos and record conversations. Most of all do not let their unethical behavior influence your Christian principles. If they do cheat you; you will have peace in knowing that the Lord always serves justice to all like no human can.

i often find that people think that because I try to be kind to people and fair in my business dealings that they can use me as a doormat and take advantage of me. This irritates me, and it irritates them when I don't allow it; ending what could have been a nice relationship. How does the Christian man deal with the con-artist businessman?

To T-Bone: Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you. Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you.

How do you talk to an atheist about the Lord? It seems like most of them are so sensitive and close minded about it.

To Cerpko: There is only one God and his reasons are far above yours or my understanding. Trusting in him is your choice.

When I think of all the suffering at St. Jude Hospital and in the world, it makes me wonder, like so many do, why do I worship a God that would allow such cruelty?

To Styrker: Often times it is not for us to understand why God does something, but rather to trust in Him, for his judgement is sufficient. However in this case the reasons are apparent. This story is one of the oldest in all of the scriptures and has provided wisdom and guidance to untold numbers of people who have experienced similar life events.

The Devil challenged the faith of Job before God and God allowed the Devil to destroy Job's life to prove Job's faithfulness. Why would God have to prove anything to anyone, especially an innocent God fearing man? Is there any reward great enough to compensate for the losses that Job endured?
01-08-2014 6:00:47 AM CST
To Beauregard: Are you willing to experience the life of Job for Christ's sake? Would you take a fatal bullet for Christ's sake? Many people around the world for many centuries have done just that in opposition to the laws created by some very insane people. Following the Bible is superior to any man made laws.
01-07-2014 3:51:33 PM CST
Which is more right; to follow the Bible or to follow a law that is contrary to the Bible?
01-05-2014 5:38:10 AM CST
To Sticks: In some countries a person cannot be enriched by a lawsuit. Injuries and disabilities are covered, but punitive penalties are paid to the government. Laws that are contrary to scripture should be repealed. Without laws the world of non-Christians would live in chaos.
01-04-2014 7:47:12 AM CST
Which is the better approach to attracting people to Christianity? By using force and creating laws that turn people into criminals because they sin differently than you, or allowing people to live in a free society to live as they choose and approaching them with love and example?

To Tito: The last words of Christ on the cross was "Forgive them ...". I would think that would be his greatest wish and prayer. It is only after you forgive someone can you earnestly seek to help them.

If Christ could have his one wish, what would it be?
12-28-2013 2:45:19 AM CST
To Digger: The Bible is so full of the knowledge of life that it is impossible for anyone to retain all its wisdom in one reading. Although the words never change your perspective does. As you mature in life and in wisdom the Bible will continue to serve you in meeting the challenges you encounter.

How come it is that some people is always a readin the Bible over and over? Ain't one time good enough? The words nor the meanin don't change, or do they?
