That takes money, and I am glad to give back to God what is already his to begin with.

    Tell your wife to hang in there when the bills pile up at the church, God will handle it buddy.
    "tithe" was probably the wrong word as most people including myself do not give the "10%". We have people that can barely make a living that give $10 a week. The point is that if you truly believe, you give what you can to help out and give back to what has been given you.

    I agree with all of the statements above about the church needing money to run,but I was at one place that wanted a copy of your previous years W-2.I was like stick this place and my W-2 up your ass I will go home and watch Joel Osteen every Sunday morning.Only problem with that is I want my kids to grow up doing some of the things the churches offer so I'm kinda caught in the middle.

    Don't let one church or ten churches stop you from going and your kids. Go to a couple, go to ten till you find one the u like.

    I think gambling is only a sin if you are hurting the people around you... Not just gambling extra money
    Gambling is NOT a sin as long as it's not in excess or you're not hurting people. Drinking in moderation isn't a sin. Having an occasional cigar isn't a sin I don't think. Christians have it made. We get to have fun AND go to heaven.

    Its called a sactuary for a reason.

    As far as sinning by gambling, we all sin everyday and will continue to do so till there is 6 foot of dirt put on top of us. Thats why Jesus was nailed to that cross on calvary, so that are past, present, and future sins would be paid.

    Our debt has been purchased by the father thru the son, once you accept that your spot in the kingdom of heaven is secured.

    As far as baptism, i recommend it, but no where in the bible does it state that its a must. My take on it, if Jesus felt compelled to let John the Baptist baptize him, then I would follow suit.

    Nice to see a thread like this, no bickering, no hate. The sad thing is, no post either. That is very sad IMO
    Wow, why do I feel like I just entered a site full of friendly faces? This is so unusual I can't even tell you. Everywhere I post this people tell me that they hate me and cuss me out. It's nice to be around people who actually care about their soul.

    Keep your trust in the Lord, NOT in man or the church. Church is there to help you get closer to the Lord. When you give money, give it as unto the Lord, not to the church. Whatever you do, do it unto the Lord and give thanks to Him. I hope that you read this first post and if you haven't yet, prayed that prayer at the bottom of it.

    Never let a church do that to you. That was wrong of them. The giving needs to come from your heart. I would find a new church.

    Money is not the root of all evil. The LOVE of money is the root of all (kinds of) evil. Give the money unto the Lord.

    Im sure i will get alot of flak over this. But it isnt my opinion. You need to read this for yourself jumping on me will not help anything. First off there isnt ONE place in the bible where it tells you to say the sinners prayer and you are saved. If it was really like that the bible would say exactly that. It doesnt have a sinners prayer ANYWHERE in it. (no mention of a rapture either)You have to be baptised to be saved. It isnt an option or a choice. Im telling you guys this for your own good. This say a prayer and you will be saved is just a convienent way to get people to think they are saved. It IS false teaching. Mark 16;15,16. Saul of Tarsus didnt just say a prayer, The Ethiopian Eunuch, The Philippian Jailor, Jesus himself. were all baptised. Theres a verse in Revalation warning about changing the words in the bible. Thats exactly what this is. Dont get mad at me read it for yourself. Its a mistake to think God will just kind of overlook that you just went out and did what you felt like was right. The words are in the book. You either believe it or you dont but if you stray away from any part of it you are not doing what it says to do.

    So what does that mean for people of other cultures and religions that don't baptize?

    Do all of you think the world is 12,000 years old. Do you think GOD created the world in 7 days? Do you believe in some of the stories from the bible: Noah's Ark, the dude that was swallowed by a whale?
