Is the preacher that gets a tearful voice at some point in every sermon being manipulative or just a fraud? The first time I heard I thought the guy was really compassionate but the clockwork repetition of it at every sermon has had the opposite effect.

To Vestal: You look like an angel, you walk like an angel, you talk like an angel, but your the devil in dequise. Did you know Elvis?

I tell people I am a Christian, I try to act like a Christian, I try to look like a Christian, I try to live like a Christian; only because I don't want people to look at me to close and see who I really am inside. It amazes me how people will trust and respect you when you do that. I guess God doesn't care, he hasn't struck me with a bolt of lighting, yet.

To Scar: When a preacher starts a sentence with I think or I believe, that means he is guessing but wants you to accept his thought as infallible. Not me, if the Bible doesn't tell it then only God has the answer and you'll have to ask him when/if you see him.

When God said, "Let us create man in my own image", who was he talking to?

To Ram: The Bible teaches us to live wisely. Do you think overeating is wise? I think, not. \\\

Is overeating a sin?

To Isabella: The Lord is with you. I pray your passion will last a lifetime.
10-26-2013 2:12:05 AM CST
I have this overwhelming and consuming passion to be with the Lord but don't how. What can I do to calm my spirit? This feeling reminds me of my first love when I was so preoccupied and distracted by it I could barely think of anything else.

To Tinker: This is an area where knowing the principles taught in the Bible become important. What may be a correct action by man's perspective may be considered unwise according to a biblical principle. An example would be concerning filing a lawsuit against someone. The Bible says that's not a good idea. The lawyer will disagree. The bottom line is to know the biblical principle, determine if applies, and what is God's spirit telling you to do.

Are Christians so passive that they do not do the things that need to be done to protect their rights of freedom? Do they think the Lord will do the job for them? Will he?

To Joy: The Bible is a book of knowledge; knowledge of how to deal with the many scenarios of life, including gloom, despair, and agony. Through faith in God no matter how severe the problem, you have a strength, to keep your inter-peace and joy in the Lord. The Lord promised not to ever give you more than you can handle.

According to John 10:10 Jesus came that we may enjoy life. Why then have so many Christians, including his disciples, died a torturous death?

To Fanman: To live outside the social norm is the Christian way so it could be said all Christians are eccentric. If your fantasies are really unanswered prayers there is no problem with that. Now on the other hand if we are talking about an evil weirdness and desire then I'll be a prayin for you.
10-14-2013 4:07:51 AM CST
Are the non-harmful eccentricities and fantasies a person has sinful?

To Francesco: Hardships are the soil on which faith is built. It is during the hardships that we are closest to our savior. If you feel the holy spirit in your life and you trust in it, then it would be hard to call it a placebo. A placebo could not perform the miracles I've seen in my life.
10-13-2013 1:59:54 AM CST
Is it sinful to be doubtful? I prayed the prayer, I've tried to live the life but still the hardships seem to outweigh the blessings. Is the concept of faith just a placebo in my mind?

To Boing: Satan loves it when people allow themselves to be spoon fed by government or big business, into a life of servitude and poverty. Most of the people that Moses led had a slave mentality and never made it to the promise land. If you want to lead people to the promise land you must be the church; even if you are the only member. Stand strong in your church and soon others will follow. Join with other church people to increase the presence of the Lord among those with no church and no faith.

How do you change the mindset of a person, a society, a nation that has been conditioned for so many years to live life without the Lord?

To Woody: Anyone can have a personal relationship with Christ no matter how vile, unholy, or even demonic they may be. The do's and don'ts of the Bible serve to identify the principles that will make your life on earth better. You can't fix what you don't know is wrong.

To hear the preachers tell it; there is a long list of things a person can't do and be a person who has a personal relationship with Christ, to be a Christian, to be saved. Is that their opinion or interpretation or is it factual? I never have been able to live up to my own expectations much less those of others.

To Bubbles: This is where the reality of God can be acknowledged. You have heard the statement "you will reap what you sow, later than you sow, and greater than you sow." This is a fact of life, of nature, of God. Just remember, that gate swings both ways. He will also take from you, more than you can take from others.

What does it mean when people say "You can't out give God"?

To Luke: Mental and physical detoxification can take some time. The first step is for the person to have a reason to want to change. The threat of Hell works for some and the promise of Heaven works for others. Although Heaven and Hell is a real destination, in the above statement I use the terms figuratively. What will scare them out of their current state or what will excite them to want a change from their current state? Excitement seems to work best (a new love, a new job, a new adventure, or something) This is just a suggestion.

How can I help the person whose has experienced so much mental credulity they have a very low self-esteem and have turned to drugs, alcohol, or some religious cult as a crutch for life. They won't even try to face reality with their own strength. What do you say to a person like that?
