Would you agree that some criminals are acting on "learned behavior" from the street, television, movies, music, parents, siblings, and other inputs rather than just mental illness?

To Sawbone: My guess would be "No". Only God knows who's faking it and who's not, with the exception of verifiable medical physical evidence.(chemical imbalances) About forgiveness, that's not my call but I would think he would.

Would you say that all people who commit crimes are mentally ill? Does God automatically forgive the crimes of the mental ill?

To Kunkurra: Only God himself can give absolution. The book of Proverbs has a lot to say about what is good and acceptable in a marriage.

Do two equally sinful people deserve each other in a marriage?

To Rapunzel: Shallow people seem to think so, in fact, it was shallow people like that, that helped send Christ to the Cross.

Is "guilty by association" a fair assessment of one's character?

Hey Gutz, you old wiseguy r u still livin on the dark side of town? I gave it up many years ago when I figured out, careful living is more rewarding than careless living. I haven't seen you or any of the others in long time. Most everybody has forgotten about those days. To answer your question, yeah, I'm for real, reapin the reward for doing things God's way. If you get tired of Hell's kitchen, maybe God can help you too.

Hey Solo, is this preacher thing with you for real? I know what you did, where you went, and who you hung around with in the past, and it sure weren't no preachers.

To Sverre: God gives powers to his believers that others cannot even fathom. Being stronger serves to help you help others.

If the Lord is supposed to carry our burden, why then does he want us to become stronger through pain and despair?

To Hans: It is much easier and less time consuming to throw money at a problem than it is to address it, just ask any politician or preacher, especially when it is not their money they are using. However there are some who are truly trying to get involved with media ministries in movies and TV programs and have been quite successful. Show your support any way you can.

If the way to society's heart is through the TV and movies; why then is there not more Christian programing on TV and at the movies?

To Cilia: Voice inflections are often used to dramatize a point in the message being given.

What's up with these preachers that sound like they are going to cry any second while they are giving a sermon? Are they wimps or just depressed?

To Zeru: I'm not here to tell you how to run your life, however, if everyone thinks like you do, you will be able to see it from your house. It may even be in your house. Even now you are paying for it in higher Taxes, higher insurance, higher consumer item prices, and more. Our government doesn't make any money it just spends it. Criminals are not made to paid for the damages they do, so the taxpayer/consumer gets the bill.
11-07-2011 3:58:47 AM CST
As Christians should we concern ourselves with the corruption occurring around the world and in America? After all, I can't see it from my house.

To Redeye: That is one of the reasons this website was started; to help the unconventional Christian understand what's going on. You can learn at home but the Church is a good place to meet new Christian friends that can help you along. Many Churchs now have contemporary services and classes for folks with your background.

I was not raised in a Christian home but just the opposite. There was no Bible talk, no praying, or anything like that. My folks were so busy didn't even talk to each other so what I learned about life I learned on the street. Now that the Lord found me I want to learn, but when I go to church I feel like an outcast around all the family Christian people. Is there a church for me, somewhere?

To Fingers: To sin in thought is common among us all. The more we train our minds in Christian values the less these thoughts occur. I would suggest before going to bed to watch, read, listen or think upon a cheerful, happy, even humorous Christian anecdote or fable, and of course pray, to sleep with a restful mind.

Occasionally, I have dreams of a sinful nature. Am I sinning when I have these dreams while I am asleep? How can I stop them?

To Chassy: There is a whole array of drugs and even life issues that cause an altered state of mind.When you are most vunerable fill your mind with prayer. Instant prayer brings instant peace.

I want to do the right thing, however sometimes the anti-inflammation prescription I take seems to put me in an altered state of mind. When this happens it causes me to become compromising to my convictions. Any suggestions? Not taking it is not an option.

The man-made aspects of a marriage satisfy the social and legal requirements. The commitment to the Lord and the public confession of that commitment of marriage is a promise that should be held in highest regard and honor. The marriage commitment is finalized by sexual consummation. Some scriptures imply that a person is married to anyone and everyone with whom sexual relations has occured and the current marriage is with the most recent person involved.
10-23-2011 4:50:39 AM CST
When does marriage occur; when two hearts become one before the Lord, or when a man-made legal document is signed? Did all the people of the Bible times have written documents of marriage? I know of some people more dedicated to each other in a relationship than any official marriage document could cause.
