I have been divorced twice, but I still believe in the lord. I know he gave me free will of mind to make the decisions that are right for me to happy in this big bad world cause we are only here for a short time. If anyone thinks I am going to hell because of that, well then so be it. I know I tried being happy & tried forcing myself to love those one's I was married to, but I will also not live a lie & force myself to be in love with someone I am not because of other's beliefs! I have mine & everyone else has theirs.

There are so many people that do not understand "forgiveness" a worldly unsaved person will commit all kinds of sin including fornication and adultery. Adulltry is committed with the heart and fornication with the body. Thank God, His wisdom it not mine. When you are saved God forgives all bad decisions. One thing is clear in these posts, almost no one understand that the preaching of the cross is not foolishness to them that believe. The cross is the Power of God.... Thany You God for your infinite wisdom to forgive even though we can' t comprehend it.

<quoted text>I am totally in agreement with you, COGOP will not tell you your fate. There are two sins God will not forgive you for, Blasphemy and murder. Be happy and love the lord be bless.
In Luke 23:33-34, "And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they CRUCIFIED him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots." Jesus prayed for God to forgive the ones who were 'murdering' Him.

You stated: It wasn't her fault that the first man she believed in lied to her from almost the first time she laid eyes on him. So should she live alone for the rest of her life, or give up the only happiness she's ever known, just because they want to live lives in a way pleasing to God?
I just can't see a truly just God demanding that of them.

'And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or WIFE, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.'(Matthew 19:29)... From the kid of two preacher parents.:)

Jesus said his Grace was enough. We can't add to it or take away from his Grace. Freedom in Christ is the hardest thing for Christians to accept. Man didn't save me and man can't send me to hell. The book of life is in heaven and God's in charge of the Lamb's Book of Life. Grace and Truth comes from Jesus My Lord and Savior.

I find that living God's word will make those who want to live their own way angry. Gods word is to get us to Heaven. For those who who are opposing The teaching you can probably rest assure there are other sins in their life.
If it is not for you why fight it move on. God will judge in the end according to his Word. If you truly want the answer be prepared to except it and not fight against it.
Also that is a dangerous place to be to call Gods Church a cult. I pray God will soften your heart.

Our purpose as christians is to witness to a lost world.jesus tells us he did not come to condemn the world but to save.we know there are spiritual guidelines and christian morals. we ourselves need to abide by what we proclaim is GODS WORD

In this age with the rate of divorces it is hard to find anyone who hasn't been divorced especially under the age sixty five. I would think that people would be more concerned with the monies that go to these television evangelists that get rich from those who are less educated. If you desire to be rich in this country, the ministry is the way to go. I don't think I would worry to much about divorced folks. I'm always amazed on how people rate sins. I think these ministers do more damage to religion than any other source.

I also believe people of certain authorities take advantage of those of lesser education and lesser income.but GOD knows and sees all.religion has been an easy panhandle for many.trying to sell the word of GOD.

However the word of GOD and salvation is not free.it cost someone their life.even though salvation is a gift for whomsoever will accept Jesus christ as their personal saviour.we need to consider what we are required for this love and mercy. we are to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice holy and acceptable unto GOD

GOD is not a GOD that requires lucre.HE already owns all.what we offer to our lord should be given as a cheerful giver.we cant buy GOD.to be a geniune christian disciple is to take care of the poor and the lame and the sick. MERCY PEOPLE MERCY.

judging means to discern what is wrong and what is right in all circumstances.we do not have the authority to condemn.we do however have the command to love.
