Is God controlling our lives or did he give us a set of abilities and it is up to us to use them or not? With God's capabilities and intelligent design why didn't he create a world of peace and happiness, love and understanding? The popular answer to that question doesn't work for me.

To Traveler: Take two sheets of paper, on one write down all the things you want, on the other write down what you are willing to do to get them. That should be a pretty good wake up call for you.

To Traveler: You are not close enough, yet, to see it, what is and what could be.

I hear all these stories how God has healed, prospered, protected, and lifted up so many people; why isn't he doing it for me?

To Pelagia: The Church is the only place I know of that "teaches" love and happiness, and even there not all practice it.

Why does there have to be so much hate and discontent in our world?

To Chester: I agree the Christian videos and movies are limited but more are being made and they are getting better and better. However if you are not pleased with what is available perhaps you should consider making one yourself or provide the funding for one to be made.

Does every story told by a Christian have to be a drama? Is there no humor that can also encourage the Christian? Almost every Christian movie I see appears to be written by a drama queen; give me a break. It's no sin to smile or laugh.

To Speed: I would say the worst of sinners are either inmates, soon to-be inmates, or the people that represent them, not church members. It may be that some members need more forgiveness than others but I would suggest most just want to interact with others that have a common interest in Christ.

Are church members the worst of sinners that need more forgiveness than non church people?

To Sarge: The Bible may not specifically speak to the phrase "right of privacy" but it does have a lot to say about the nosy people that would violate your privacy.

To Sarge: The Bibles I checked do not have the phrase "right of privacy" however the Bibles do speak of rights and the Bibles do speak of private events. Christ prayed in private. I would suggest if you are wanting a more in depth study to go to the website of "The Bible Gateway".

Does the Bible say anything about a persons' right to privacy?

To Magoo:It is not wrong for man to do what nature motives him to do if it is done in a civilized way. Do not confuse learned behaviors with human nature. The advancement of a civilized human race is part of human nature. Unfortunately there are many in this world of all socio and economic levels that are still very uncivilized.

When God made man did he also create his human nature and instincts? (such as getting out of the rain, not touching fire, desiring sex, ect..) Then why is it wrong for man to do some of the things that comes naturally?

To Marcello: Sociopaths exist in all segments of society all over the world. If you don't agree with any one person about something either "agree to disagree" or move on down the line. It may be it is you who needs to change not the preacherman.
09-05-2012 2:30:11 PM CST
I think the preacherman is trying to dictate social prohibitions rather than spiritual ones and this is a great turn-off for the many different cultural customs of societies around the world. Wouldn't it be better if the preacherman would just stick to the Bible rather than telling people they are wrong if they aren't like him?

To Beater: The evil and destruction of Satan is facilitated through people and God does forgive people of their sins; so yes, God even includes the sins of Satan in his forgiveness. Satan continues to be damned, like people, because he will not submit to God but rather wants to be God.
09-05-2012 2:48:19 AM CST
Does God forgive Satan for his evil spirits and destruction of lives?

To Hosa: There is power in God's word for you only if "you" believe it.
09-04-2012 4:33:03 AM CST
I feel sure the writers of the Bible were honest and wise men; but is honest and truth the same thing? Do you believe that all they wrote was the whole truth?

To Easy: To be young at heart means to trust without question, to love without condition, to live without hate, to hope without reserve, to forgive without remembering, to give without knowing, and to follow the Lord in awe. This is just a start; you can probably add more. I hope you will.

What does it mean to be young at heart?

To Charo: The mind has a way of building up defenses or walls to protect it from potential pain. Sometimes this is a bad thing when we shut out people or events that could benefit us but in some cases as in yours it would be a good thing. Try to devise ways to prevent yourself from the temptations that occur when you are most vulnerable. Don't go there or don't see that person; whatever it takes, avoid the scene.

In the mornings I read verse, watch a sermon, pray, and the Lord is ever present in my mind, but by the end of the day when the medications my doc says I must take have kicked in, seems like the devil sneaks in. I know the meds I take make me mentally vulnerable but what can I do?
