To Rembrandt: In the temporary, yes. In the permanent, no. In a perfect world, no. In a fallen world, yes. For all have sinned. It would be a nice thought to be able to believe the answer to be no, but that would discredit the Bible. To be a thief or a Liar is a deliberate act and is a sin. If there is no repentance there is no Christian.

Is there such a thing as a Christian Liar or a Christian thief?

In America, I was criticized for living like the devil, so I changed. Then I was criticized for living like a Christian. Seems like to fit in, I must be corrupt on the inside but squeaky clean on the outside. What a fraud!

To Joueuse: You have in you everything you need to live, but without access to breathable air you won't. God has given you everything you need, but without communication with him you cannot access his powerful force in your life.

Many preachers teach that God has already placed in me everything I need. If this is true, why then do I need God?

To Shake: !st answer: research, is it consistent with the Bible. 2nd answer: Do you have the mind of Christ? Do you have Christ-like thinking? really. 3rd answer: Have you counseled with other Christians about it? Are the opinions consistent?

When I pray how can I tell if the thoughts that come to mind are my own, or are from God?

To StandingBear: First I don't want to be one who judges the behavior of other people. What may seem wrong to me may be right to someone else, even God. I try to accept all people even if I disagree with their behavior. To those people I try to live the example of what I think is the proper behavior and pray that they may learn and decide for themselves.

Many people claim to be Christians but then live like heathens. This is probably the main reason so many non-Christians don't believe. What can we as true Christians do to counter the damage of the quasi-Christains?

To Bullet: You reap today what you sowed yesterday. Do more to get more.

So, where's my abundance? The Bible says it but I don't have it.

To Coyote: Before I make any suggestions, tell me what are you currently doing in the church other than sitting in the pew and listening to the sermon?

I been going to church for awhile now and it's starting to get repetitive and boring, what do I do to refresh my enthusiasm?

To Whitey: Many people mistake kindness for weakness. The American government promotes "wealth without work" which is coveting or otherwise known as theft. Do not despair though, God's got your back on that one. Give wisely.

Seems like every time I try to help someone out they end up trying to take advantage of me.

To Crowbar: Understating a topic draws an interested person to ask questions and learn more. Overstating a topic often makes the topic unbelievable.
06-06-2011 10:43:38 AM CST
Which is better, to understate or overstate a topic?

A person could get hurt going slow, probably not going fast. I don't mind dying on my motocycle, I just don't want to get hurt.

Hey Solo, how come you ride your motorcycle so fast?

To Aya: Avoid if possible, politely if not.

How should Christians deal with crass and abusive businesses and people?

To Otto: It's not wrong to be sympathetic to hurting people and perhaps this type of introduction will draw a person like this to listen to the message that will help them in their suffering. If those words don't apply to you then they shouldn't bother you and if they are repressed emotions then possibly you also could be helped. After all isn't church a place also for those people, hurting in spirit?

What is up with these preachers that start their sermons trying to depress everyone with questions like: Are you hurting, depressed, injuried, broken, yada, yada, yada? Give me a break. Tell me something good.

The Bible says don't be like them. Some things we learn from others is how we Don't want to be.

What does the bible have to say about conceited people with the "Holier than thou" attitude, or the ones that need confirmation that their morals and lifestyle are superior to all others, and should be imposed on everybody (the "greater than thou" types)?
