Who are the "poor in spirit"? Are they rich people with a poverty mentality? Are they poor people who are discouraged? Are they people who don’t have the strength of mind to make it in the world and Jesus wants to take them out?

A book I read once was called "Good Grief" and it said that something good can come from losing a loved one. Jesus said to His disciples on the mountain,"Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted". Why did Jesus teach this to His Disciples?

The only thing about Christmas that bothers me is that people see Jesus as a baby, meek and mild but they don’t see Him for all that He really is.

So, do I have to go to the heart of Africa or some other war ravaged, AIDS ridden, refugee overrun, starving hordes kind of country before I can show mercy? I hope not! Is that unmerciful? What does being merciful really mean?

Take a bath! You smell like a hypocrite! Better to live like the unbeliever you are than to act like a Christian on Sundays. Because at least you won’t be deceiving yourself. Take the Purity in heart test from Matthew 5 and examine your motives!

Let’s get it right. A peacemaker is the person who has and encourages in others "peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us." (Romans 5:1). Jesus said "the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give" (John 14:27).

Unfortunately for many Christians, compromise is easier than being criticised and no-one would ever know that they are Christians, or if they do know, they are disappointed by the kind of example that is given.
