What is love? How do you love? My parents never showed it, taught it, shared it, or discussed it with me when I was growing up. Now I'm grown and say, "I don't know how to love".

To Tank: Pagans spend their lives pursuing the false idles of money and possessions, while dedicated Christians spend their lives pursuing the blessings of Christ and Christian values. Money and possessions do not satisfy that is why they always want more. The Holy Spirit of Christ is satisfying and brings a peace and happiness the pagans will never know.

Why is it the Pagans get the big houses, nice cars and the pampered life and the Christians get the crumbs?

To Axle: The peace and joy is in knowing God loves you regardless of how many times you fail. There are very few "Hell Fire", "Turn or Burn" preachers left. Most want to teach you how to have a better life through the teachings of Christ. At Church you may also find a support buddy, and even a pretty girl if your looking.

I think a lot of people quit trying to live the Christian life because they feel like such failures at it. It is very depressing to attempt to do something and know you are failing miserably at it day after day. And going to church means learning about how much more is wrong with you. Where is the peace and joy in that?

To Rox: All of the commandments and other instructions provided in the Bible are set fourth for the protection and social order of God's people. The Commandment of "Thou shall not kill/murder" was, has, and will be broken many times but not without consequence. In self defense to kill is not to murder but to preserve life. Sometimes the Lord will take the life of one to save many. The stories of the Bible help us to understand what is acceptable and unacceptable in the eyes of God.

If people lead, leaders will follow (Gandhi)

If the Lord wants everybody to worship and follow him why then does he allow corrupt people to be placed in leadership positions such as Judges, Congressmen, even Presidents that young people should want to aspire to be like?
01-17-2011 11:13:54 PM CST
The 10 commandments teach us "Thou shall not kill" but then in other chapters of the Bible Killing is described in great detail and appears to be condoned By God. I don't understand can you help?

To Hank: The Bible states that if you had the faith of a mustard seed you could move mountains. So when you meet a faith healer that has moved a mountain then I would think they are for real, provided of course, that it is God's will that the person be healed. If you ever do meet that mountain mover please, please tell me who and where, cause I want to see that.

Are faith healers for real?

To T-Bone: The ways of the Lord are superior to even brightest minds of all mankind. I would say the Lord does always have his way. It appears to me the anti-theist fail to consider one of the primary ways of the Lord, which is the right of all people to make a choice. One can choose to live the Lords way, or not. If not, the consequences are outside of the Lords limits of grace. The Lord does allow you to make the choice.
12-30-2010 12:30:14 AM CST
Does God always have his way? If yes, that would imply his approval of pain and suffering, eternal damnation, and a host of other earthly maladies. If no, it would imply he is not all-powerful and more. Are the anti-theist correct?

To Kuss: Do you believe there is a God? Do you believe the Bible is true? If yes, then you can be assured that the Lord will avenge your enemies in a way far more effective than anything you could ever do yourself. Understand that people who commit evil deeds against other people are mentally ill to some degree. Lowering yourself to their level makes you no better than them. Pray that the Lord will give you the strength to forgive these mentally ill people and move on.

To Vas and Bird: It is very easy to take a single verse or phrase out of the Bible and use it out of context. You don't have to forgive anyone but the consequence may not be to your advantage.

The OT teaches; the cost of sin is death and God required something to die for sins committed against him. In the NT, Jesus was sent to die for all of mankind's sins against God. So what is the cost when man sins against man? Even in society the law requires life for life. What restitution is required when your neighbor or others sin against you? (other than hiring a carnal lawyer) I like what Bird said in his post.

To Hoot: Every evil deed begins with a single thought. Instant prayer brings instant peace. When an evil thought is first make prayer the second thought. In time peace will become your first thought.

Preachers say I'm supposed to forgive everybody that has done me wrong, but then they go on to say Jesus will forgive us our sins if we ask. Why then should I forgive anyone who doesn't ask me, Jesus doesn't. In fact he says anyone who doesn't ask will be sent to hell. I don't send anyone to hell. I figure if someone wants me to forgive them they will right whatever they did to wrong me and then ask me to forgive them. So what's your thinking on this?
12-14-2010 12:26:48 AM CST
How do I stop the evil thoughts of revenge that won't go away? There was a time I would revenge anyone who gave me cause but now I depend on the Lord.

To Hoot: I can not answer for any, or all, preachers about any subject. I will discuss this book with you, just let me know what part you don't understand.

How come I never hear any Preachers teach on the book - The Song of Solomon?

To Driver: The more knowledge you have of God's word the easier it will be to distinguish between divine answers and not. There are very few questions, if any, that cannot be answered with your Bible in hand and head.

To Joker: In the secular, most often the sin committed is justified by the sinner and the sin received is motivation for anger and revenge which torments. For the forgiving Christian there is no torment either way because a true Christian will right any wrong if possible. God's wisdom tells us to find the blessing in any and every thing we experience. I know this can be very hard at times.

To Clutch: Some would say the answer to that question is as infinite as the total of lives that will ever have existed on this planet. However, life is from any perspective, a resource, to perpetuate the existence of this world both physically and spiritually. The meaning of your life is culmination of your contributions to that end. Only after you leave this life can a finite answer as to the meaning or value of your personal contribution toward the perpetuation of the resource of future life be it good or bad. (a more descriptive answer will be posted on this website at a later date. This is the short answer.) God is the author of this planet of life. The personal meaning of your life is subjective to what you believe it to be, useful, useless, good or evil.

What is the meaning of life?
