    Opinions on College?

    It completely depends on the person and their situation. Some people don’t need it at all and have no problem finding a steady and good job. College isn’t for everyone, I have friends that have dropped out and are doing good. But some benefit from a degree. I’m also a college student and have faced the same doubts, but for me right now attending college is the right move. In my area most work requires you have some sort of degree. You just have to know what’s best for you.

    Prayer for my best friend

    I hope and pray she continues to recover well. And that whatever was bothering her is completely healed. It’s certainly not easy to see friends suffer. She’s lucky to have a friend like you that cares for her. Glad to read she’s doing good, we’ll keep praying she continues to be healthy.
  3. I love gardening, it's very relaxing. I can see how it'd make you feel closer to God. You'd be in a quiet and open place surrounded by nature. You can use that time in your garden to reflect or even talk to God. If you have the blessing of having a big garden you can certainly use it and your time for this.

    The Walking Dead

    I really like the Walking Dead, however, I'm not caught up with season 7. From what you're saying I assume it gets better. It was a little slow for me so I haven't finished it. It's a great show, but I haven't loved the latest seasons. I'll try to catch up soon and see. Maybe I haven't paid enough attention to it in the latest season.

    Feeling alone

    We've all been there, you can be surrounded by people and still feel alone. I feel like many people around us are also busy with their own things, it seems to be a little harder to make connections with people. I like to keep a journal, if there's no one around to talk to you can always write about it. It's a good way to let your thoughts flow and not feel so alone.
  6. My best friend has been struggling after a messy breakup for a year now. She believes in God, but she's very disappointed and desperate to find someone new since her ex has found someone else. She says it's not fair that he gets to be happy while she's not and that God should just send her the right person already. I've tried telling her that when we ask for something to God we need to be patient and that maybe he knows she's not ready yet. But she won't listen, I'm afraid she's heading down a bad path with that train of thought. What could I tell her for her to understand and start moving on? I don't know what else to say.

    Do You Believe?

    I got to watch this movie when it came out in the theater. I really enjoyed it very much, far more than God's Not Dead honestly. It was interesting the way they showed different people struggling with their own problems. I appreciate it not ending in tragedy. But it did keep me on edge at the end there, that accident scene at the bridge was intense. It's a powerful message and everyone that was with me really enjoyed it.

    What is a movie critic….really?

    A good movie critic would be fair to a movie. I find that a lot of them easily deem movies as bad for silly details. While most people enjoy the movie, the critics are quick to tear the movie down. However, I understand it's their job, that they need to be honest and not all of them are like this. I'm just saying they shouldn't be our main source when deciding to watch a movie or not.

    How do you beat stress?

    If I'm really stressed I'll go to music. It calms me down and makes me feel at ease. Also, painting makes me feel better. I guess doing something you enjoy will help you calm down and forget what's troubling you. At least for a while, it's good to relax after stressful situations.

    Why are people attacking my faith so hard?

    This happens to many of us, being accused of ignorance and other things because of our faith. We were warned, Mathew 10:22 states, "You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved". So the best we can do is continue believing, even when others around us don't and give us a hard time for it. There will always be people around us who disagree with us. So we should keep our head up and keep trusting.
  11. Well, it's something we can't change in people, it's entirely up to them to change. Once you're a christian God will help you learn, but you need to work on improving the things you once did that are wrong. We're all human and make mistakes, but it's up to us to correct them and learn. It's certainly something he needs to change, I feel like you can't bless someone then curse others with your words. Then again, it's something that he needs to change himself.

    Question about prayer

    Maybe it's because you're more reserved about your emotions and when you're praying it's a way for you to release them. I tend to get emotional when I pray sometimes, mainly when it's things I've bottled up. I'm not one to talk much about my troubles, so prayer is my way to talk about it. There's nothing wrong with that in my opinion.

    Favorite Christian band

    I admit I'm a bit picky about christian music. I do love Skillet and Fireflight though. They're really good bands with great lyrics. I know some people don't like them for the music genre, but maybe they don't pay attention to the lyrics. I also like some Hillsong songs and Lifehouse.
  14. I don't think it would be rude, as long as it's mentioned in a polite way. If it's bothering you it may be bothering others. We've had issues at my church with sound before. In a certain part of the church, the speakers were too close and the people that usually sat there mentioned it. The problem was addressed now everything is fine. I'm sure they want everyone to be comfortable in church for them to enjoy the service.
  15. What really bothers me about this is that this is a kids show. And the people complaining are adults. I respect everyone and this only an opinion, but I don't understand why there's such a strong need for this representation on a children's television show. I think kids are still kids, they don't need to be bombarded with these topics. They just want a fun show, no need for this.
