Should He Change Jobs?

Q.  I am a stay at home mom and my husband is a teacher.  We were blessed with his job 4 years ago when we decided to move.  I know it was God’s perfect timing and this job has provided for our family very well.  My husband likes his job but doesn’t love his job.  He’s recently been debating on whether he wants to stay in that profession or not.  He has many other jobs he could do to support us.

Our question is, should we be thankful for the job that God blessed us with and that my husband is capable of doing for the long term?  Or should he try to find a job in life that he loves?  What would Jesus tell him he should do?  We want to be thankful for the blessings in our lives but aren’t sure when to step outside of the path we are on.

Where’s The Love?

Q.   I’ve been wondering about the love of Jesus.  Why does His love seem absent from so many who call themselves believers?  Is the answer found in Matthew 24, specifically verse 12, or was Jesus speaking only about Daniel’s 70th week?  Or is it more answered by 1 John 4:8?  In such a religious nation and with so little love visible, how do we find the true brethren who love Jesus?

Living A Quiet Life

Q.  1 Thessalonians 4:11 says we should live quiet lives and mind our own affairs and work with our hands. It seems like in other places, God is telling us to live quiet lives. What does it mean to live a quiet life as a believer?

Help. I’m In a Financial Crisis

Q.  I’m writing to you because you are the only person that can give me an advice. I’m out of work, and I haven’t been able to get a job because, at my age, nobody wants to hire me. I’m waiting for my retirement funds, which are supposed to be due after my birthday, on May 14. But, in the meantime, we have to live and, right now, my wife and I are going through a terrible economic crisis. So, out of desperation, I’m using all my prayers to ask the Lord for lottery money. As a born-again believer, sometimes I have the feeling I shouldn’t ask the Lord for money I didn’t work hard to get, but other times I think He is testing my faith. What should I do?

Do We Have The Authority?

Q.  I read about healing and the other gifts, but I’m wondering about authority. Do we have the authority to use Jesus’ name to do such things, including but not limited to: Healing the sick, casting out demons, blessing things, etc. I’m not talking about the gifts, but rather the authority.   Do all Christians today have the authority to do so?

Becoming Sons Of God

Q. How do people become sons of God? I know the Bible says in Romans 8 that it is by grace through faith we are sons of God, but Jesus said in Matthew 5 that we may be sons of God if we love our enemies. Can you help me sort out this confusion?

The Ultimate Rags To Riches Story

A Feature Article by Jack Kelley

We all love this kind of story. And as much as we’re encouraged by the experience of an ordinary person who due to personal drive and perseverance rises from humble beginnings to become a leader of business or industry, we’re especially fond of stories where an absolute nobody is plucked from the faceless crowd and instantly propelled to the pinnacle of success. Great Hollywood stories have been built upon this premise, and they’ve never failed to delight us. But by far the absolute best example of this comes from the Bible and is about you.  Our story begins in the Old Testament Book of 1st Samuel with David and Jonathan.

Being Fashionable Or Cross Dressing?

Q. Thank you for your wonderful site. I am a female who wears slacks to church and have recently been told about Deut. 22:5. I found a Q&A you had on this subject and in your answer you stated that this passage refers to cross dressing, a deviant sexual practice.  I can’t understand how you came up with this explanation. I greatly appreciate your site and have learned so much from you, but would like clarification on this
