    Answering Prayers?

    This is my dilemma. Why would a merciful God deny a starving person food? He gives mercy to the wicked all the time. I can't think of a reason he would say no to a prayer for food to a starving person.
  2. It is often said that God will answer your prayers with either yes, no or not right now. However wouldn't No actually not be answering your prayer? Example: If a person is starving and ask/prays for God to please give them food for the night and they do not receive it, did God just say No and that is it? Seems a bit harsh.

    Who is to be held responsible?

    Well Man has debated and been wrong about The Word ever since God gave it to Man. Just proof that Man, all Man/Men are fallible. As for who will be held accountable, we all will. As for how much and why, well there is only one judge, and it is completely up to him. We must get to know him, stay in him, and obey him. He is the only way. Praise Jesus!!! ❤❤❤

    Why I left my church and family.

    Agreed!!! He didn't say anything about "Man's way" being the way. John 14:6 King James Version (KJV) 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me Acts 4:12 King James Version (KJV) 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Stay in/with Christ!!!!
  5. Are there those that God will never forgive? How as MAN do we determine what or who can or can not be forgiven?

    Is suicide a grave sin?

    Not waiting. Building and growing with Jesus. He has knowledge way beyond this world. Learning from him will teach you that the matters of this world are not worth you taking your life. Maybe the praying and repentance has already been accepted and now Jesus is waiting for you to just sit down and talk to him. Completely, openly and wholeheartedly just speak with him and listen. Sometimes we over think things when we just simply need to sit and speak with him. Just as you would a trusted friend but he is way greater.

    Can't figure out what God wants of me?

    Yes, I meant insight. Thank you again.

    Is suicide a grave sin?

    No, it is not. That is why we have Jesus. He is the way to heaven. Your questions, thoughts and situations are not yours alone. Many have similar situations as you. My suggestion would be to develop a stronger relationship with Jesus. Speak with him, listen to him, become a close friend of his. The more you do this the better equipped you will be to navigate through this world. This world is filled with many stresses, disappointments and misguided people. Jesus is above it and them all. Man, meaning your father, friends, enemies and even people here on this site, can only give you their thoughts, views and interpretations, but Jesus is above them all. Please take the time to speak and listen with him. He is the way and can give you all you need to endure. Do not only seek him through the bible. Speak with him directly.

    Can't figure out what God wants of me?

    This would not be the situations I speak of. It would be my quarrel, even though I was not quarrelling but making it known that a particular individual's behavior has a negative effect on myself and/or multiple others. There were different situations that occurred so I have not pick only one to explain. It just seems that in all these situations, if I speak up for myself or others what is right or according to rules and procedures. Those who choose to do wrong immediately choose to come at me harshly with continued ill behavior or threats. So what I am trying to understand is; Does God want me to do nothing when someone chooses to behave badly towards myself and others? Because if I try to speak on how it doesn't have to be that way, I am confronted or threatened. Neighbor, I thank you for your incite and informative words. The office barrister would be similar to one of my situations but not exact. The employer is not an issue. It would be a fellow coworker. Many have approached the individual and he still continues his ill behavior. Me, being an elect delegate to help in meditation of such issues have attempted to remedy the issue with suggestions only to have been met with a threat. The weirdest thing is I assisted this same individual with a very similar situation where he was mistreated by another in the exact same way. So this individual now has become the abuser of others and when he is approached in trying to correct his behavior, he then turns to threats. So me being a Christian, I am just trying to understand how does God want me to handle such situations?

    Can't figure out what God wants of me?

    I am not telling people how to live. People do what they want. I meant if I notice how one individual is negatively impeding upon a multitude including myself, should I not speak on the behalf of the multitude and myself? Should I remain silent and allow myself as well as others to continue to be mistreated?
  11. There have been a number of situations where people have been taken advantage of or mistreated. When I notice these things I am always inspired to help. When I do help, I am always met with threats or negative opposition. I get that we will be faced with opposition but why the threats? This has happened I would say 3 times within the last 4 months. Is God trying to tell me not to stand up for what is right? Is he saying to mind my business and leave people to struggle? I don't understand what it is he wants me to do.

    Your purpose in someone's life

    That would be nice, but it is not realistic. We should not blame anyone, Both possess reasoning for blame and both possess reasoning that can be seen as innocent. Man, however will never have the thoughts, reasoning nor knowledge that God has to properly judge/blame. If he is spiritual (meaning has a relationship with Jesus/God), he should get real close to God. There may be many lessons for him to learn and through them he may get comfort, guidance and a better understanding/direction for his life. If he is not spiritual, then maybe he should get to know Jesus. We definitely have influence upon and in everyone's life we meet, both good and bad. Hopefully more good than bad. The full purpose of our encounters, sometimes, we will never know. It's God's perfect plan. God sometimes uses individuals to do horribly wrong, strictly to benefit the ultimate goals of his plan. Ex: Pharoah, Judas, Pharisees and those who crucified Jesus. If it weren't for these individuals, we would not know the Mercy and Grace of God nor The Holy Spirit. Not every wrong is for destruction. It may be a restoration/renovation/renewal.
  13. It can feel weird to wish someone well when they have wronged you, but you should and mean it. Romans 12:19-21King James Version (KJV) 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good You can take the verses literally. I see it like this: You know this person was wrong, God also knows this person was wrong. You did not have to address him because God did, him losing his job. (12:19) By wishing him well and meaning it, you would be obeying God, by showing mercy towards, say an enemy, despite the wrong he has done to you. God likes that. (12:20) God rather you remain good, even when you are done wrong. It speaks to the condition of your heart. (12:21) So feeling bad that Jeremy is going to have difficulties, is a God natured feeling. We shouldn't want harm towards others. However, pray for Jeremy, that he learns the lesson God is going to teach him. Trust that God will handle him accordingly.
