  1. John chapter 4 verse 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth." I see no reason to attend.
  2. Was balaam saved?

    Joshua chapter 13 verse 22 In addition to those slain in battle, the Israelites had put to the sword Balaam son of Beor, who practiced divination.
  3. Galatians chapter 3 verse 24, 25,23 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian. Before the coming of this faith, we were held in custody under the law, locked up until the faith that was to come would be revealed.
  4. James chapter 3 verse 1, 2 Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.

    Hebrews chapter 7 verses 11,12 If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood for on the basis of it the law was given to the people why was there still need for another priest to come one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron? For when there is a change of the priesthood, there must also be a change of the law. John chapter 15 verse 12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Galatians chapter 5 verse 14 The entire law is summed up in a single command love your neighbor as your self.
  6. Suffer now, Party Later

    I think you need to study the bible, that's the only way to know anything, I'm not suffering, look at this verse. John chapter 8 verse 31,32 To the jews who believed him jesus said if you hold to my teaching you are really my disciples and you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. I'm also not trying to put you down, but study, nothing in this life is more important than studying, unless you have kids you need to raise properly. Matthew chapter 4 verse 4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'" Romans chapter 1 verse 28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. John chapter 8 verse 31,32 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, " If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. 2 John 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. Job chapter 23 verse 12 I have not departed from the commands of his lips; I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread. Matthew 11 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Luke chapter 21 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Romans chapter 10 17 Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. Mark chapter 13 31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. James chapter 1 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do. James chapter 4 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Isaiah chapter 45 verse 19 I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacob's descendants, 'Seek me in vain.' I, the LORD, speak the truth; I declare what is right. Jeremiah chapter 9 24 but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. Jeremiah chapter 5 verse 1 5 “Go up and down the streets of Jerusalem, look around and consider, search through her squares. If you can find but one person who deals honestly and seeks the truth, I will forgive this city. Psalm 119 verse 114 You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
  7. Isaiah chapter 62 verse 6 I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, Luke chapter 18 verse 1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.
  8. Pursue Holiness

    1 John chapter 1 verse 8 If anyone claims to be without sin they deceive themselves, and the truth is not in them. James chapter 2 verse 10 If anyone keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point they are guilty of breaking all of it. 1 Peter chapter 4 verse 8 Love covers a great many sins. Matthew chapter 21 32 For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him. Luke chapter 3 7 John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? 8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. 9 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” 10 “What should we do then?” the crowd asked. 11 John answered, “Anyone who has two shirts should share with the one who has none, and anyone who has food should do the same.” 12 Even tax collectors came to be baptized. “Teacher,” they asked, “what should we do?” 13 “Don’t collect any more than you are required to,” he told them. 14 Then some soldiers asked him, “And what should we do?” He replied, “Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely—be content with your pay.”
  9. Should you honor an abusive parent

    Ephesians chapter 6 verse 4 Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. Earlier in the chapter it says to honor your father and mother, but it doesn't sound like you were brought up in the training of the lord, but if you want to honor her it's up to you, it doesn't mean you have to expose a child to her. And if you honor you parents it doesn't mean you have to like them, you shouldn't hate though. I've learned I can like people even if I don't like what they do, most people are likeable.
  10. Hebrews chapter 12 verse 16 See that no one is sexually immoral, or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. Genesis chapter 27 verse 41, 42 Esau held a grudge against Jacob because of the blessing his father had given him. He said to himself, "The days of mourning for my father are near; then I will kill my brother Jacob." When Rebekah was told what her older son Esau had said, she sent for her younger son Jacob and said to him, "Your brother Esau is planning to avenge himself by killing you.
  11. I read and listen to the NIV, it's easier to understand, I also have a MP3 player that makes it easy, things that are written that aren't the bible, may not be true, and no one is always right in what they say.
  12. What do they call your people?

    By this we are all Jews. Romans chapter 4 16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. 17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.”[c] He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.
  13. Money

    1 Corinthians chapter 9 verse 9 For it is written in the Law of Moses: "Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain." Is it about oxen that God is concerned? Philippians chapter 1 verse 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, I would like pastors to preach for free that would take all the greed out of it, like Billy Graham, who died with 25 million dollars.
  14. Isaiah chapter 62 verse 6 I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, Luke chapter 18 verse 1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 1 Peter chapter 4 verse 8 Love covers a great many sins.
