    lewis, If I am included in "most", I have not forgotten. Philippians 2:12 Paul said,"Wherefore my beloved as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." There's those words again; obey ,fear and trembling."
  • Lewis
    I think most are forgetting several scriptures in the Bible, Jesus said you must be born again, of the Spirit and of the water, Peter said to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus, Paul said we must work out our own salvation, and there are many more scriptures confirming this.We as adults can not be saved by what some one else believes.

    marriage was created by God if at time we have no respect for God how can we have respect for our spouses. the Holy Spirit gudies us into all truth if we have the holy within us our desire will be for God and God alone hence any other relationship will have a positive and strong influence. but this is a daily relationship with God its a process so that we may reach the standards of God

    Great chapter of the bible. As a christian counselor let me say Marriage should be taken seriously. I have seen so many fall apart because of our lack of knowledge. Just as you would tune up your car to keep it running smoothly. I advise married couples to attend marriage seminars or retreats annually. God Bless
