    I was hoping you’d have one of these soon.

    Here’s one to chew on: is pedophilia a sexual orientation?

  2. Hi Alastair,
    I think we were writing the above posts at the same time🙂 I have read the comment you mentioned above, and it resonates with me.

  3. New topic: Does anyone else pray in tongues?

  4. Alex says:

    I need prayer for breakthrough in a personal trial.

  5. Alex says:

    I have a fear that whatever the most excruciatingly painful path is, that’s what God has in store for me so that I’ll be more like Him. I fear that I have lesson upon lesson to learn by facing death through exactly whatever hurts the most. Do you think that’s a biblical perspective?

    • Hi Alex,
      You have mentioned ‘fear’ twice in your post. Jesus is with you in your fears. I think of Jesus in Gethsemane, in such anguish that he was ‘sweating blood’. Whatever lies ahead for you, the Lord is with you. I will continue to pray for you. Christine

    • It is ‘a’ perspective, and one that has biblical analogues in Job and elsewhere. However, as a biblical perspective, it is never the final perspective. How things appear as we pass through the Valley of the Shadow of Death is never the same as they appear when we see things from a higher vantage point.

      It is God’s good pleasure to give you his kingdom. He is for us. He may call you to walk a bitterly painful path in order to get there. Gone before us is a mighty crowd of witnesses, many of whom have walked the same road. Whatever sorrow you now experience, joy will come in that morning.
