Have you ever experienced stress and anxiety because you’re dealing with a ton of financial problems? I’ve been there.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.crosswalk.com

A short article about faith and God over material and financial distress. We need to find counsel and hope that God will open the doors he intends for us.  Easier said then done when bills come, but if we place our hope and talents in God, he will direct them.  Sometimes its just a matter of patience and God’s will before our own. Maybe even less luxurious lifestyles that ultimately may be hurting our soul

Can I be a Casual-Sex Christian?

 

Please see if you would like to become a certified Christian Counselor.  Also can an active non married sex life relate to a true Christian?

Our sins were paid for when Jesus died on the cross. This does not mean we have the green light to continue sinning when we know better!

One cannot serve two masters.  Many wish casual sex had no effect on our spirituality or role as a Christian but the truth is such ideas are impossible.  While there are those who fail but seek forgiveness there are those who would like to have the ability to be Christian and sexual with no opposition.   This is wrong and not compatible with Christ.   As Christians we must fight our urges, and when we fall seek forgiveness, but we can never dare say it is OK to be lustful and still think it is an acceptable life compatible with Christ. It is not.
