Why do people think that sex and love cannot be separated? I can have sex without loving and I can love without having sex.

To Zane: The advancement of civilization through technology is surely from God. Just as it is in nature there are those who will abuse and even attempt to destroy the good which God has made.

Is the Internet a gift from God or a curse of the Devil?

To Jif: Parables are much like the Proverbs we use to guide us in our decision making process.They can be applied in many different circumstances. Parables are easy to remember. The meanings are a gift from God. Without a knowledge of God's wisdom and word they are meaningless.

Why did Jesus speak in Parables, why not just tell like it is?

To Gunner: If God said it, don't expect to change it. God is the creator of justice; what seems fair is not always justice in God's eye.

In the Bible God says the sins of the wicked will curse the next four generations of family. That doesn't seem fair to me, that a child would have to pay for the sins of the parent, grandparent, even great grandparent. Is there some way to break that curse?

To Slick: Lying, cheating and stealing is the character of a weak, insecure, childish, loser and God doesn't like it.

Do you think a person can knowingly sell a substandard product or service, or cheat an employer and still be a sincere Christian?

To Draco: The closer to the Bible the Preacher and the Church stays the more sincere it will be. The life of the Preacher and the Church speaks louder than any words or advertisements. Is the message about the Preacher, the Church, the need for money, or is it about the word of God? Does the Church want your participation or your money? Does the Preacher practice what is being preacher or are they a clothes horse with all the expensive accessories of life? They want you to give till it hurts but personally they don't. Does the Preacher use the word "I" excessively or "I think" or "God told me to tell you..."? These and other operative words and phrases should send up a flag to your attention. Most important is when you pray about it, what is God's response to you. The Lord does respond to prayer.

How can I tell the difference between a false Christian church or preacher, and a sincere one?

To Trip: There are volumes of answers to that question; here are three main reasons. God's existence and power is so vast it is impossible to wrap your mind around it. To bring it into a more understandable perspective he brought it down to a human level in Christ. Second, from the beginning of time the cost of sin was death and separation from God but through the sacrifice of Christ all sins of mankind could be forgiven. Christ was and is the benchmark of perfection for humans and the example of a Godly life we should all aspire to attain. So in short, through Jesus we can see the heart of God, a salvation from our sins, and a leader to be followed.

To Blade: In the beginning brothers had to marry sisters, and this was acceptable up until the time of Mosses. Adam and Eve lived for hundreds of years and had many children that inter-married to populate the earth. (this is the short answer, there is more to know about this.) Cain's wife was his sister.
09-30-2012 11:31:00 PM CST
So where did Cain's wife come from? The Bible states there were no others, other than Adam and Eve's children.

To Pinky: Love is not hurtful, people are. Many say they are Christians but they are not. Many say they love but they don't. Whether they are or not, do or don't depends on your definition of the words.

Hey Solo that was a good pitch to Frieght Train but you didn't answer his question about love being hurtful. I was looking forward to a good answer on that.

In some countries the rulers will tell you how to live, what you can and can't do. The Lord is not like that; he always gives you the choice to follow him or not. He doesn't make any promises that you will be rich, famous or of some supernatural ability. He doesn't promise you a rose garden type of life. If fact he says the world will be against you if you follow him. What he does promise is the strength to endure, even grow stronger, in the face of any adversary petition or complaint brought against you. He promises to be closer than a friend and when your time is done on this planet he promises to transcend you to his heavenly side for eternity. The question you must ask yourself is do you believe in eternity and is it worth the risk to blow it now for a few moments of cheap thrills that you probably won't even remember in the morning. The Lord doesn't require perfection, only sincere dedication. Party now, pay later. Pray now, prosper later.

Love has always been conspicuously absent in the most of my life, or it was so obscure I didn't see it. Oh, I got the words and the jesters but rarely the action of love. So I never really learned how, but when I have tried it seems to be a hurtful thing; so I have become, comfortably numb. And you want me to change all that to become a vulnerable target in a cut throat world. That's a lot to ask. Convince me if you can.

To Ein: (Continued) If you get to heaven before me please send me a letter with the Lord's answers to the questions that have no answers on earth. Maybe then I can also understand. Thanks
(I don't know what's going on with this form link, it seems to have started cutting off some of the script.)

To Ein: The answer would depend on who you asked. I would like to think we are all spiritual, just some are more so than others. So at what point does devout become savant? We are all children of God so at what point do stop be prodigious and reach spiritual maturity? If you get to heaven before me please send me a letter with the Lord\\
09-23-2012 9:55:00 PM CST
Was Christ the only prodigious spiritual savant that has ever lived?

To Kick: You have to have a manuscript (the book) before you can have a movie or any other media. A book can be written and published without much commitment other than the time it takes to have your OCR software write it and edit it for you. But, to make a movie is a real step of faith and that bar is to high for most preachers to reach.
09-23-2012 1:31:59 AM CST
Most of the kids today don't read books unless it is required in school. But the preachers keep writing them; why don't they try a different media that the teenagers and young adults will accept, like a movie or a song or a sitcom. Old folks buy and read some of them cause they have the time, others don't.

To Chang: God is all powerful therefore sometimes he allows things to happen and sometimes he makes things happen. You can change your perspective of the world just as easily as God. There are people on this earth that live in a world of love and happiness, peace and understanding. You can too.
