    How does Jesus' suffering on the cross compare to an eternity in Hell?

    I think you are speaking to my point. Our understanding doesn't make sense in light of the character of God. I do not believe he tosses children into fire and sulfur. In some ancient religions the sacrifice of children, to appease an angry god did exist, and God (according to the bible) called...

    Hard to admit loneliness?

    I hear you. I miss having someone who knows what makes me laugh, who understands what things mean when I say them. I miss being able to care about what happens in their day and being the one who can make them laugh, and being their safe harbour in the storm. Yes Jesus is with us, but I miss...

    How does Jesus' suffering on the cross compare to an eternity in Hell?

    I think that our understanding is very limited. In Corinthians they talk about seeing through a glass dimly. There are things that seem unjust and leave us confused. What I go back to, are the few things I know. I know that God is love. I know that God is just. I know that God is holy and...

    Calming dating fears and how do you get close due to COVID-19

    This is a good time to get to know the other person by talking. By not being able to be in physical contact you get a more unclouded view of them and how you'd communicate. Take the time to become best friends. You might learn some really important things right now. It must be so hard to be...

    Not new, but have not been here for a while

    Hi Nate, Welcome back. When you know someone well you learn to recognize their voice. As a mom I can be surrounded by other people's children but as soon as my son would call me I know that it was him. The more time you spend in the word and in quiet prayer you learn to discern his voice. Years...

    Arguments

    Years ago there was a radio show host who suggested the "cheerful and clueless" method. If you are dealing with someone who is quick to anger and is usually looking for an argument, this works rather well. As they start you smile and let them know they are so funny. They will escalate until they...

    Survey Poll: Will you take the Covid 19 Vaccine

    One variable would be whether it is a live vaccine or dead. If it is live, anyone who is immune-suppressed will most likely contract the disease. Also it depends if it is done in an egg culture as people with egg allergies may have severe, possibly fatal reactions.
