Regarding "Today's Scripture" 09/21/06: Nehemiah 9:17 Col 3:12-13 Eph 4:1-3 How are we to act TOWARD OTHER BELIEVERS was the question posed. This seemingly implies we only are concerned about forgiveness, graciousness and being merciful, slow to anger and full of unfailing love & mercy ONLY TOWARD OTHER BELIEVERS! If God is in us, working through us, and there is more of him and less of us, would we not have this same same Godly motivation and attitudes toward ALL HUMAN BEINGS, BELIEVER OR NOT?

Help me out here please? Thank You. Rich

My husband's brother is in jail right now. He has been in before for stabbing someone in a gang fight and now for grand theft auto. He is hooked on meth and has become impossible to deal with. He has hurt my husband and I in so many deep and different ways, so much to the point where we felt in danger near him. There is now a restraining order in affect against him. Previously we had forgiven him, time and again, only to be hurt more and more. He has laughed at us and told us it is our fault that we got hurt because we are dumb enough to care for him still. At the point we gave up. This past week my sister-in-law said something to me that has hurt me very badly and made me confused. She said I am a hypocrit for going to church and refusing to forgive someone too. I have prayed for strength and guidance to help me forgive, but she said there is no forgiveness in my heart. When I went to church on Easter I felt ashamed and unworthy. There is no longer a longing to know my brother in law and I feel a need to protect my son from having to know him. I have also been told that it is one thing to forgive, but another to forget. I do not understand. I am very confused. I am sure I am wrong, but I do not understand what I should do. I do not want to be a bad person, but I think I hate him. I have prayed for God to help me correct such a bad feeling and I think I am improving a little. I prayed on Easter that he would be saved and be a good person, so I could forgive him. But is that wrong too? Should I forgive him regardless of what kind of person he is and forget as well? I have also been told that to be Christian we should be open to get hurt and always express love only. We have been hurt and forgiven him, then hurt and forgiven, round and round we went. Should that continue? Are we wrong for saying enough is enough? I am so confused.

My husband is a"recovering" alcoholic. I feel very hurt that he hid this from me before we married. I was abused as a child by an alcoholic and the very smell of it makes me want to run as fast as I can. He attends Calvary with me on Sunday mornings, but I can't seem to get him to read scripture with me at home. I feel that alcoholism is not a disease, it's substance abuse like any street drug. I believe he can overcome this with God's help. But he believes what he has heard at AA meetings, that it will always be there and it is normal to succumb to it for the rest of his life. He says the 2 things that keep him from drinking is going to the gym and AA meetings. Am I wrong to think that God can cure him if he would diligently seek His help?

I feel so overwelmed by the wickedness of our world. Tonight as I turned on the TV and stopped to listen about a story I had heard earlier on a missing 6 year old. The details the followed actually made me physically ill. I could not get him or his family out of my mind. I am already "overprotective" of my children-sometimes I feel I want to run and hide.

I take care of my brother's home and have had various roommates in the last 5 years in which I funtion as the house manager/caretaker. I have had a rule about 'no one of the opposite sex' in the bedroom. I have bent that rule for a few situations of special circumstances with legitimate family members. I recently communicated with a Christian father who thinks it is better to maintain his friendship with his adult son (and let his girlfriend sleep over) as long as his son agrees to go to church once a week. My daughter recently moved out because she didn't like my rule. Am I being overly controlling of other adult behavior as a manager of my brother's home or would Jesus smile and approve of my boundaries?
