    heartbroken after sin?
    Is there any of you guy out there who decide from time to time to turn a new leaf, asking God to make you whole again and give you strength to face the world, but still end up commiting sin anyway? You feel you've dissapointed God and don't know if you'll last long in christianity? You aren't sure whether you've been forgiven or not and if you deserve the forgiveness in the first place?

    How do you deal with it and how can you be be happy and enjoy God's presence after it all?

    I cant concentrate in church
    Hi!
    I'm not usually that good in concentrating when someone talks around me. But when i take a book i really sit down to read it and end up understanding it better. Even in class, i have low concentration but when i go home i read and get what was taught that day. The funny thing is that i'm one of the best in class.
    Now the problem comes in that when i go to church, i find myself struggling to concentrate on the sermon such that i end up getting nothing. And i don't have a clinical condition either. I have a few christian books at home such as 'a closer walk' and 'Daily bread' which i read on my spare time and they are really helpful.
    my question is that does this make me a lesser christian?

    Justified or not?
    I would really be glad if you could help me with this. You see, there is this boy called Tom. Now his family is not all that rich financially. He is astudent in a college. He has a pair of shoes but they are torn and have seen better days. He doesn't have enough money to buy new ones. So he asks his dad for some money to buy new ones, and the dad says he is broke. Ofcourse this was no surprise to Tom.

    Left with no choice, Tom decides to skip the first few weeks of college inorder to save the transport money without his father's knowledge. He couldn't help that he was deciving his dad given that it is his dad who pays the fees. It was either that or continue to go to school with slippers.

    Now Tom is a christian and wonders whether this is in keeping to living the perfect way of the lord. On the other hand he consoles himself that what he did was related to going to school, so it wasn't really a lie.Was his actions wrong, justified.....? Please reply!

    Love is when you do something and does'nt expect anything in return i.e gratitude or appraissal. But ofcourse this is only my opinion.

    Is listening to secular music wrong?
    I delight in calling myself a christian. Yet i love listening to other secular music like Celine Dion's I'm your angel, my heart will go on and so on. My question is " Is it wrong to just listen to other music by other artists if you are a christian?" Please help me resolve this once and for all!

    Bless you! That was great. Every test and trial we go through in life I guess teaches us to learn to trust God no matter how tough the going might be.

    Anything that can lead or is likely to make you commit sin is a sin in itself... including taking of alcohol.

    The way i do it might not fit your shedule. Immediately after coming from college(usually around 7pm)(, i shower then find time to read God's word for around 15 or 20 minutes. I know if i don't do it by then, then i won't do it at all. Also while taking my ride to and from college, i read a few words from the book i carry with me to college. During the day i might just sing on my own, well and the day goes by. Does it suit you...

    Praying advice!!
    Part of being a christian is always praying. Sometimes i find it difficult to just find time to talk to God. I do it like twice or thrice a day and thats it. Don't i have the right kind of faith? I'm i weak spritually? Please provide some advice on this.

    As far as i know it, there's nothing wrong with celebrating your birthdays. Its all about giving thanks to the lord for taking care of us throughout the year. It depends on how u view and celebrate it. Perhaps it is not mentioned in the Bible because most people were not time(or day) consious as we are today where everything is based on time. God bless you!!
