#350431 Your Daughter Falls In Love With A Lost Soul

Posted by quinkie on 18 November 2013 - 04:42 PM

One of the regrets I have is not praying for my children's future spouses, friends, and employment when they were young. I, too, waited until "the barn door was opened" (so to speak) and then prayed about those things. (By that time it was too late) If she is prone to obeying your wishes, perhaps you could talk her into waiting, a year perhaps longer to see if she would change her mind or he possibly get saved. Will be joining in prayer for her to make the right decision.


#349828 Forgiveness Without Relationship

Posted by quinkie on 13 November 2013 - 01:12 PM

Romans 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

I have always taken this verse to mean that it is not always possible to have a relationship with some people. We are always to forgive, but sometimes a relationship is not possible.

#340400 Pastor’S Salary Cap

Posted by quinkie on 21 August 2013 - 05:45 AM

Anyone who doesn't think that a Pastor WORKS doesn't know what a Pastor does.  Sure, if ALL he did was preach a 30-45 min sermon on Sunday, possibly teach a class on Sunday, deliver a small sermon on Wednesday night that would be  a walk in the park and leave plenty of time for a full time job.  But what about all the hours of studying, the hours of pouring out his heart to people who are in trouble, in grief, the hours of traveling to and from different hospitals, jails, detention homes, the ability to cry with broken- hearted people and then in an instant have to turn that emotion off and laugh with others who have just been blessed in some way, have the financial problems not only of his home, but of the church.on his shoulders, counsel people who do not take his counsel many times, not too mention the hours of prayer he has to engage in not only for himself and his family, but for those in his church.  Now I understand that there are some mega churches who can pay really good salaries to their pastors,  and there are others who are just struggling to pay the Pastor a decent salary, but the majority of smaller churches struggle just to give the pastor a tip and then he and his wife many times have to work outside jobs.




#340299 Pastor’S Salary Cap

Posted by quinkie on 20 August 2013 - 12:38 PM

If a church wants the benefits of a full time Pastor, it should pay him a living wage - one that will support his family in the style that the membership is accustomed to.  Some churches are not able to do that, I understand.  But the preacher and his family should not be treated as "poor relatives"




#339830 Can A Parent's Own Cursing And Profanity Cause Children To

Posted by quinkie on 15 August 2013 - 05:23 AM

People used to have respect for women and children, and even if they did cuss around other men, had enough respect not to do it around women and children.  That respect is gone today, and it makes no difference who is around.  So yes, the use of profanity does eliminate respect for others.  When you do not respect others, it is easy to show that disrespect in other ways, lying, stealing, cheating, etc.

#331693 Preaching Schedules

Posted by quinkie on 04 June 2013 - 05:10 AM

In our area a few years back (northeast Ohio), a Pastor was having a campmeeting.  He sent out over 200 letters to "like-minded" churches, (like-minded according to the names of the churches)  advertizing his campmeeting dates, speakers, and inviting others to come.  He followed that letter up with another letter, outlining the beliefs of his church and those of the speakers that would be speaking, again inviting other churches to come.  Only one Pastor came to any of the meetings.  None called to say they were too busy, had scheduling conflicts, whatever.  Seems in our area, at least, people don't want to go to other meetings.  That is sad.  My husband and I love to go to other meetings when  our own church is not having something going on.
