Many people believe when someone dies in an accident it happened accidentally. However, the Scriptures clearly state that there are no accidents. It is God who will deliver the person into the hands of the other to take his or her life and provides a way for the person involved to escape.

God sent fire and brimstone on those who give themselves over to sexual immorality and homosexuality.

Fear is a sign that we may lack faith. ‘Fear’ by itself is not mentioned as a sin anywhere in the Scriptures. However, when we fear, we must place our trust in God and hope that He will deliver us.

To defeat problems like Goliath, we must first boldly face lions and bears in smaller situations, to be faithful to God and standing firm for His teachings on little things.

If we pass comments on the troubles of others without putting ourselves in their shoes or without seriousness or for others to hear our comments, whatever we spoke will be placed on us as judgement to test us. We must be very careful not to speak any idle words because they will be tested on us.
Christian workers must never compare their payments for the job with others and be envious if others get more. Rather they must negotiate with their employers and agree on the salary they require for the job. Even if the employer is not generous to others, we must always be content with what we agreed to receive for the work.
What should a Christian do if faced with injustice? What if threatened with a knife to give away everything we have? Should we fight back or give what he wants?
