    Advice? I know God wants us to go to those

    who we may have hurt and forgive those who have hurt us. It's part of being a Christian. I've been hurt by so many people I can't remember them all. I have the stand out ones but don't know them all. I want to truly forgive and "love" them as God wants me to. But I don't know...

    I am ready to fully commit my life

    For the past few months,

    I've really gone down hill. I don't pray every night like I used to, I don't ask for forgiveness when it comes to sins and sometimes I do bad, even though I know it's wrong and I hate it. There is not excuse to why I am not abiding by God's way. I would say "I don't have enough...

    Sometimes I feel.inadequate.

    I don't read my Bible as much because I've allowed myself to get too busy. I am constantly coveting, although I have everything I need. I feel I'm not as kind and patient as I should be. I lied the other day to a family member about my grandpa's drinking. I have a serious...

    The amount of diversity within Christianity is

    well documented and yet all that diversity cannot be right. A simple question that needs to be asked is what if you are wrong?

    If the Church had been capable of following

    directions as outlined in the Epistles, and stopped insisting that it is commanded of everyone to go and preach the Gospel disunity may not have become a reality.

    I really struggle with my faith lately.

    Not on a "not believing" aspect, but on one where I don't go to church and rarely read in The Word, however, I do follow beliefs and try my best to follow my faith. It's weird because I used to live in Georgia (which is extremely religious) so I was surrounded by religion...

    Meaning of the cross What does it mean to

    believe? True Biblical belief requires action, so if you truly believed that Christ died so that we may live, it should not only bring you to your knees (to pray) but also bring you to your feet (to do). The cross is a gift and it was paid for, with blood, but that's blood that...
