Answers to questions by site readers

Common site search Christian based questions by readers..
 
In love if one actually studies, reads the Bible itself  the answers should be already apparent?
 
Sadly my wife was unfaithful and divorced me, something very common too these days.. 
And if she was a Christian, and you are one too you or she have still no right of remarriage  although if she was unfaithful without your own contribution remarriage it might be biblically acceptable….

What does “rebuke mean” in the Bible – It merely means humbly confront the person and ask him to repent of his specifc sin.. 

Can a divorced man be a leader in the Church. Or what should stop you from being an elder
it also depends also on whether he is at fault in the divorce firstly, and has repented of it too,  and secondly it is very clear that old testament prophets  were church leaders even though their wives did not always spiritually  toe the mark still.. but utimately you are a leader only if God has called you to that office and has equipped you for it now too. Many non divorced persons are not even God ordained leaders and firstly they  should not be there now too.
 
Is it a sin for a Christian to marry a non Christian ..
Yes always unacceptable now  too.. just as it is a sin to marry a divorced person now too, or to commit adultery, have sex outside of a valid martial relationship
 
What about false Pentecostalism and man-made doctrines.
There is true and false Pentecostal persons, Pentecostal beliefs and also still many churches, even non Pentecostals hold false, man made, not God ordained., inspired Doctrines 
 
 
What is a bad Pastor?
Firstly it is any Church or God ordained Pastor  who behaves unrepentantly without love, dictatoriall, behaves unbiblicaly, clearly violates God’s commandments, abuses others, an imposter, a pretender, a hireling, a false teacher, a fasle prophet..’
 
Who are church elders?
Normally they are Holy Spirit qualified persons, recognized and selected by the congregation to lead the church.. generally  includes also the pastors, generally each church should have a plurality of pastors, shepherds, deacons but elders are is not limited to being Pastors. The elders, pastors and deacons are both to be spiritual, but one looks mainly after the flock’s spiritual and the other one mainly looks after the flock’s physical needs, such as food, clothing, shelter.
 
(Prov 27:23 KJV)  Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. 
Pastors, Elders, Shepherds, Christian Leaders, Evangelists  https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/08/13/pastors-elders-shepherds-christian-leaders-evangelists/
 
 
Most of these topics are already fully covered in detail on my related sites too.. even  http://pbulow.tripod.com/ 
 
 If you want to differ please do show your Bible references as to why as well..
 
 
What are the disadvantages, hindrances still of Bell Internet services..
I almost wrote a book on it in the last year.. for a start their adds tend to be misleading, vague.. adds they next do not live up to as well.. for more just do a Google search Bell, Sympatico, thenonconformer..

What Does the Bible Say About Heaven?

Filed under: Christianity — Tags: — thenonconformer @ 12:10 am

 Read the Bible for yourself and find out, and don’t believe what others tell you it says.

There are many definitions of Heaven.. the one I  like the best .. Heaven is being eternally present with God.. and some people are in Heaven now and they next will continue in this state  when they die. Hell is being eternally separated from God.. and yes many people are in Hell now and will next continue to Hell. 
 
Here is a definition of Hell I chuckle at.. Hell is being unemployed in Heaven.
 
Now the Dispensationalists do teach and believe that Christians will go to Heaven and Jews to the new earth.. do thus see my many detailed views on dispensationalists who I  believe are from the pits of Hell.
 
Now why would God want to dwell on earth when he has all of Heaven for me and him to live in? Pastors too should stay with what the Bible actually says.
  
Jesus after his death went to Hell and took all of the Old Testament believers to Heaven to be with him.. and there is no more intermeidate place, purgatory.. for absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.. for it is appointed from man to die once, and after that there next is an immediate judgment.
  
There is so much talk, rather it seems boasting by some people that they have all the Bible  answers, that they have all the truth, even about Heaven, Hell, and how to get there.
 
Too often I discover even preachers playing on the  words found in the Bible and they are  not really being led by the Holy spirit. No matter who the preacher is it still generally tends be true that he too still has some false doctrines.. so I prefer to talk to God directly and let him God  directly teach me, and it will not contradict the Bible.
 
Sadly many evangelical Christians even really do not know God personally, for  they only know off him, and that from a far, they have not even  learned to hear his voice. Do see  http://pbulow.tripod.com/  on how to do this.
 
Some people do even say that Heaven was, is  the garden of Eden where Adam and Eve dwelt and that it will be restored here on earth.
 
To truly know the answers you have to seek God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit and let them teach you. The Bible does not say that when the Greek will come it will  come and lead you into all truth, or when the pastor comes,  or when you go to school, University  as well.. But it says when when the Holy Spirit will come he will teach you all of the truth rather. Do you let him do this now?

Anyone care? Top Posts read by many

  
do see also
 
 
(Luke 14:26 KJV)  If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
 
(Luke 14:33 KJV)  So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.
 
 

 Just like today in social aid, the people receiving social  aid they now cannot own major tangible property, real estate, so any of   the people, priests  receiving the old testament tithes they also could not own any major tangible, real estate  properties.. but today the false priest, pastors who are demanding on receiving tithes they falsely also do want to still own a home… to enjoy the monetary rewards of both.. they are still equivalent of welfare cheats!!!!

You can run but you can’t hide

A good name is worth more than silver or Gold, and a tarnished one is worthless, but also very painful; generally.. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest. I too had learned decades ago that the pen is mightier than the sword of the crooks, bullies, pretenders, imposters. Starting at the top is always the best way now too   http://mediamyopic.com/2008/12/16/foreclosure-facebook-style/   

Hey I admit it I hate crooks, the bad guys

– I dislike the bad cops and Bad RCMP in Canada
– I dislike all bad Professionals, bad civil and public servants and their too often poor managers now too
– I really dislike Bad Politicians, especially ex PM Paul Martin, Stephen Harper
– I dislike rightfully bad Pastors, and all alcoholics now too
– I have always disliked bad, crooked computer dealers too..
– I really also dislike Bell Canada rightfully as well and the CRTC..

We in Canada also  still do need real accountability, and the real beefing up of the enforcements, regulations against the much too many con artists liars, thieves, crooks, imposters, pretenders. being basically motivated by greed, increasing the profits. Bait and switch,  Misleading advertising, Unfair and Restrictive business trade practices seem to be a common thing in the Internet Service Providers  industry too, especially since generally the ISP are unregulated both by the Courts and the governments. It is a sad reality that even what is advertised is also next what the customer next consistently gets. “  The first biggest unacceptable bad culprits still who need to be fired ASAP are those rather toothless, pretentious, federal and provincial consumer Ministers and their mostly bad subordinates. Healthy Competition was supposedly a good way to decrease  the prices and increase the services, but instead we get price fixings, unfair and restrictive trade practices.. which still all reminds me of the bad immoral Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper trying to murder all of the opposition  out of existence too.. for he himself is no better as a leader, example of ethics, morality too. We do need still  a new real,  tougher cop on the beat. to strengthen all business, financial regulatory agencies and crack down on runaway “greed and scheming” , to really clean up the worlds of politics , finance, business and really  help to put in help put in place new, common-sense rules of the road that will protect investors, consumers and our entire economy from fraud and manipulation by an irresponsible few caused also by a  lack of “adult supervision” and  managers not being    as aggressive as they should in properly managing subordinates, others. Conservative  and Liberal governments administration’s laissez-faire philosophy is also  allowing excessive risk and corruption at the highest echelons and also by too many people with a false disdain for regulation. We need more activist regulatory approaches,  no-nonsense regulators. Too many of these crooks are still governed by a mentality governed by the principle that, “whatever is good for me, I do.”  Behave Honourable or you will be fired, terminated message  needs to be to apply to a range of social, physical, financial, governmental  institutions — and to individuals across right across the board. A real  restoration of a sense of responsibility, personal accountability  and the notions of  advocating beneficial values not just for ourselves, but what’s good for the others, the country as a whole, operating in reality out of a sense of what is being done is for the common good , Our too often poor Regulators do unacceptably “drop the ball,” and have failed to crack down on the bad culture of greed and scheming, to take seriously their own responsibility to “operate honourably.  The CRTC also itself has not put much of a dent in fraud, abuses,  and the entire system needs an overhaul. The CRTC also has missed too many red flags in its oversight of it’s duties, responsibilities..

“You can run but you can’t hide. This week a court in Australia ruled that social networking sites are an adequate medium for mortgage lenders to notify borrowers that they’re losing their homes. Barry Schnitt, a Facebook spokesperson, reportedly told news outlets that, “we’re pleased to see the Australian court validate Facebook as a reliable, secure and private medium for communication.” Schnitt may want to re-think his enthusiasm, as people are already crying Big Brother. But social networking users are rather naive to have ever thought these sites would serve strictly social purposes. First came the advertisers, then media began citing the pages as legit sources, employers followed suit, and now colleges are evaluating personal profiles in the admissions process. Once we disclose personal information in a public realm, albeit a virtual one, the public has little recourse in claiming rights to privacy.”

Self centeredness, Promotion of self is still a sin..

 
(Mat 18:1 KJV)  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?  2  And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
 
 Satan is cunning, to induce all Christians  to sin, he prequalifies them as “leaders” instead of “servants of the most high”..  (Dan 3:26 KJV)  Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high God, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. (Acts 16:17 KJV)  The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which show unto us the way of salvation.
 
(Ezek 13:12 KJV)  Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
 
(Isa 14:12 KJV)  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!13   For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15   Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
 
(Isa 14:21 KJV)  Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
 
(Luke 11:39 KJV)  And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
 
Clearly many persons who are expecting a bigger portion of the pie in heaven will be disappointed.. for there is only one reward in heaven, and it is eternal life, living with God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit the rest of your life.
 
(John 8:28 KJV)  Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. 29  And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him. 
 
(John 8:31 KJV)    If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
 
(Mat 19:29 KJV)  And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
 
(Mat 20:1 KJV)  For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. 2  And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3  And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4  And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. 5  Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. 6  And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? 7  They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive. 8  So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9  And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10  But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. 11  And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, 12  Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. 13  But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? 14  Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. 15  Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? 16  So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
 
(Luke 16:15 KJV)  Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
  
(Luke 17:10 KJV)  So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.
  
  
(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 20   Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. 21  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. 22  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
   
(Isa 30:21 KJV)  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
  
(Isa 30:22 KJV)  Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.
