Capital Punishment Is Sanctioned By The Bible

Christians and believers in the Bible, the Word of God calls for the death penalty for first degree murder, rape, and other acts of violence. The Bible tells us to behold the goodness AND the severity of God whose Word--including in the New Testament--does NOT speak against capital punishment Read the scriptural proof now.

La Biblia sanciona la pena capital

Cristianos y creyentes en la Biblia, la Palabra de Dios pide la pena de muerte para el asesinato en primer grado, la violación y otros actos de violencia. La Biblia nos dice que contemplemos la bondad Y la severidad de Dios, cuya Palabra -incluso en el Nuevo Testamento- NO habla en contra de la pena capital. Lea ahora la prueba bíblica.

Can a Long Distance Relationship Work for Christian Singles?


Christian singles who have genuinely been born again in Jesus are extremely rare nowadays. This is part of the reason why they're having such a hard time finding a spouse who also is a true believer. This article is geared toward this group of people.

Many believers who are single, are turning to online Christian dating. But, they are becoming despondent as they ask themselves, "Can a long distance relationship work?" The answer to that important question depends on the people involved. Let's see why sometimes it should be answered in the negative and why it sometimes should be answered in the affirmative.

Think Before Starting a Long Distance Relationship

It's probably better to ask yourself, "Can a long distance relationship work for me?" Everyone is different and everyone's circumstances, desires, and goals in life are different. Therefore, it's best to think before you act. Below are some of the questions that you and the person with whom you are considering a long distance relationship might want to answer:

1. Are you willing to consider a relocation? If relocation is not an option for you or the other person, you already have your answer to the question, "Can a long distance relationship work?" Obviously, it cannot work. Sometimes when people say that moving is not an "option," they actually mean that they simply are unwilling to relocate. The bottom line is that if neither will budge from his or her place of residence, you probably have a "no go."

2. What will your long distance relationship communication be like? Modern technology now affords a variety of ways to stay in touch at very affordable prices: email, text messages, instant messaging, and phone calls. Can a long distance relationship work simply because there are so many ways to stay in touch? No, not necessarily. It's amazing the number of people who have poor skills in written communication. This means that they don't converse well by email. Let's face it, busy schedules just don't always allow for meeting up to talk by instant messaging. Text messages by phone can prove extremely awkward for attempting to have a real conversation. Not everyone can talk on the phone on a daily basis. Email allows for communication at any time of the day or night and can often be received and sent for free. It helps tremendously to learn to communicate effectively by email in attempting a relationship at a distance.

3. Keeping in touch is of utmost importance. Everyone who is making an honest living and trying to better him or herself in life is busy. Being busy is not an excuse for failing to stay in touch with someone. It might be difficult, but the fact of the matter is that if you don't have real conversation on a regular basis, you will never have a real relationship, period. Unwillingness to stay in touch and write meaningful letters or have meaningful phone conversations is reason to answer "no" to the question, "Can a long distance relationship work?"

4. Deal with misunderstandings. No matter how clear you try to be in your communication, misunderstandings will occur. Sadly, mature adults, often fail to clear up misunderstandings simply by opening their mouth and asking what was meant by something said or written. One trick of the enemy is to destroy good relationships whether they are between friends, relatives, acquaintances or a couple. Often he uses misunderstandings. However, people have to cooperate with his diabolical deeds in order for him to succeed. If you don't understand what was meant by something, you can ask.

5. Watch for progression. Periodically, you might have to ask, "Can THIS long distance relationship work?" A couple cannot become a true couple if they remain at a distance. Therefore, plans for relocation should periodically be discussed as you are getting to know each other by email, phone, texting, etc. It does not take years to plan to meet in person to see if a relocation is even going to be necessary. So, beware of a long distance relationship that never progresses. Don't waste your time. The other person might be comfortable with spending the rest of his or her life as a single. However, if you are not comfortable with that, don't allow your valuable time to be wasted with someone who is not serious about finding a spouse. To do so is to invite frustration.

Can a long distance relationship work? Yes, it can. There are too many happily married couples who have proven that it can work to deny otherwise. Does it usually work? No, it does not. However, that is often because one or both parties simply refused to put the work into the relationship that was needed.
