  1. No it encourages us to look to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith.
  2. Forget feelings and start by talking to your minister, he will guide you,lendyou heavy theological books to read and guide you in being practical in your relationship with God.
  3. If you want to be close to a friend what do you do? Don't you spend time with them, learn about the things they are interested in, do the things they do? It is the same with God. Spend time reading, studying, learning the Bible. Read theological books, spend time learning about Christianity. Heard of operation world? Open Doors? Missionary organisations? How can you pray for Christians around the world if you are ignorant. Be regular every week at church, the prayer meetings. At work/school carry and leave inview what ever Christian book you are reading or your Bible. Be ready to talk about it.
  4. It is very simple. As no one knows when Jesus is going to return, no-one knows when or if there will be a period called 'tribulation'. So the answer is to live for Jesus whole heartedly now. That way you will be ready for Jesus's return.
  5. May I suggest that you talk with your minister about doing a baptismal ourse, where you can look at the theology behind baptism and to tal about whether you are ready for baptism.
  6. Romans 6:16'Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? Yes we are adopted Sons, but we are more than just that. How we live shows who we have as a Master.
  7. Hell is the total absence of God. Hell is where God has deliberately withdrawn every bit of his presence, blessings and goodness.
  8. A slave has no freedom of choice. A slave may decide to work/live well or badly but cannot leave being a slave. Christians are slaves of Jesus.
  9. Never read them. Rather than read books ask yourself and any date a couple of questions. 1 can you demonstrate that you are a Christian? 2 what are your views on premarital sex? 3. What are your education and career plans? 1-If they are not a Christian, while you might date and use that to challenge there luck of faith. You have no long term interest in marriage. 2- You are not going to have sex out side of marriage, and are not interested in anyone who is already sexally active. Science shows the more partners one has the harder it is to form a lasting bond. 3- you need to be preparing for a career that wil support a famil. She also needs to preparing to be able to be nearly debt free following college or to quickly pay it off. Checkout wintery Knight and use search using marriage.
  10. When life kicks one in the teeth then one has a choice to trust God or not to trust God. He has very real health problems and clearly equally challenging questions. There is nothing wrong with having questions or doubts. It is what is being done to find answers to those questions/doubts that matters. Your husband has either the answers supplied by Christianity or the answer by atheists. If he will not attend church or talk with the minister, then it is up to you to supply these answers and to challenge him about what answers he accepts. We do not know why God does what he does. God is not a sugar daddy. He is not there to make our lives nice. If your Husband does not trust God, just what is he seeking or getting comfort or strength to face his problems from? It is a brutal, but honest challenge for him.
  11. When our church had a door to door team the response we often got was,"N thanks, not interested!" So the evangelist leading us wrote a tract we could give out:- 'No thanks I'm not interested!' with a sub stifle not interested in what? It went on to explain the gospel in simple terms and the consequence of not being interested. It gained us a few extra conversations as the house holder laughed at the title and talked about the 'what'. These catchy sayings have there place, usually when everything has been said or there is no opertunity to say much.
  12. Here in the UK the news of your mean deed has yet to hit the headlines. The world is still ignoring you and your mean deed. So go to that person and publicly apologise to them for the mean deed. Then don't be mean to them or anyone else.
  13. Cos I am always right, you are wrong and therefore in error;)
  14. It doesn't matter. We are saved through faith in Jesus, not by believing we are saved for eternity or that we can loose our salvatio. It is one of these topics like the second coming that generates lots of hot air but is not profitable to discuss.
