About God

The burning question is, what about God do you believe? Do you believe he doesn’t exist; that he does exist but is uninvolved; or that all paths lead to Him?

It is this simple. There is one way to God and that is through a personal relationship with Him through Jesus. It is really simple. When God made the world, man feel through sin, and God sent His Son Jesus to die and take the punishment that should have befallen sinful man. That way , anyone who believes that Jesus came to save the world and through a simple prayer or declaration enters into a relationship with him is saved. It’s so simple, it’s almost unbelievable. That may be what throws people, I dunno…… This is called being born again.

Well what are the advantages of being a born-again Christian? Well, peace in your life, security,favor, blessings, good health, a sense of purpose, the constant help of the Holy Spirit(who by the way, is the Helper Jesus promised us in the Bible) in matters as simple as what to wear today, to matters as complex as whom to marry! It is a sweet deal! Being in relationship with Christ is more that just going to church(although, having fellowship with a company of fellow believers helps you on your journey), it is really a personal journey.

Well, at the end of the day, there is heaven to be gained and a hell to be shunned if you give your life to Christ. If I am wrong,at my death I would just have been another “nutjob” who has helped people, found my life’s purpose, lived a truly happy, healthy, long peaceful life.

What if I am right though?

How To Affair-Proof Your Marriage Part 1

 

It cannot happen to me: Really, you are not that smart, not that great, not that spiritual. Yes,you have the Holy Spirit to guide you but you cannot afford to be careless about your life. Believe me, people who cheat on their spouses did not think they would end up that way. Be watchful about the situations you get into and be watchful over your marriage.

 

 

Wisdom: The Bible says wisdom is profitable to direct. Use some common sense. Men, why would you take your secretary out to lunch alone?Pastors, why would you counsel females with your door closed and no one around? Why is your “best friend” someone of the opposite sex? If you are married, your spouse should be your best friend. I recommend supportive, close friends OF THE SAME GENDER to be “BFFs”.Do not put yourself in compromising situations if you can help it.

 

 

Honesty: I hear this question:Should I tell my spouse that I am getting attracted to another person? Let me turn the question on its head: Would you rather tells your wife that you are about to become a dad(not by her)? Would you rather tell your husband that you got not only gonorrhea, but herpes from the pool boy? Bring things out into the open early. If your spouse expresses attraction for another person, this is not the time to get shocked and act sanctimonious. It is better for the issue to be out in the open before you reach the point of no return. I suggest that you and your spouse talk about it beforehand. Discuss what you would do in the event that either of you starts to feel drawn towards another person.

 

 

Marital conflict resolution:Refer to my write-ups: Fighting fair and Saying Sorry. Please do not sweep your marital messes under the carpet( I have tried it and it does not work). It just leaves room for resentment and strife to build up. The Bible talks about where there is strife, there abounds every evil work. Where conflict are not resolved, stony silence, tension and secrecy thrive. Make sure that you and your spouse talk about the issues in your marriage. Do not just talk once, keep the discussions going if it is an ongoing or recurrent issue.
