Yes, by all means. If you’re considering entering a relationship with someone, you’d want to be sure they have the same Christian values that you do. If they don’t believe as you do, you’re only asking for trouble down the road. The Bible talks about the dangers of being unequally yoked to someone with a different belief system. 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness? Vs. 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? Vs. 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Vs. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you.

If you try to rekindle things from the past, especially if you’re feeling vulnerable, how can you pray to have a soul tie lifted or removed? What if you’re happily married, but a person from your past tries to get a hold of you?
First, tell the person from your past to stop contacting you, or otherwise, you’ll put out a Restraining Order. Second, change your phone number(s) so there’s no way the person can reach you by phone. Next, if you’re not direct, clear, and firm with the person trying to get a hold of you, this could send a silent message that you may still be interested. Last, be open with your spouse about what’s happening. Chances are your spouse will eventually find out, which could cause distrust if you’ve hidden what has happened. The Bible says “to give no place to the devil.”

The age of a child can vary because Water Baptism follows people who commit their lives to the Lord after becoming Born Again. It’s important for a child to mentally understand the meaning of water baptism. If a child understands the Biblical purpose of baptism, the child can be baptized. Some children may need more spiritual teaching before they are baptized in water.

What would you say to a Christian who looks all around the world and see's so much sin that discouragement starts to set in?
Looking at all that is happening around us, it’s easy to become discouraged. But the Bible says in Isaiah 26:3 God will keep us in perfect peace when or as we keep our mind focused on Him. The Bible also tells us in Philippians 4:6-8 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God. Vs. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Vs. 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

If we are taught to honor our mother and father, why don't we honor the mother of God? Wouldn't God want us to?
The gospel of Luke tell us that Mary was honored “among women.” It doesn’t say she is to be honored “above” women. We can be thankful to God for using her to bring our Lord and Savior into the world, but she is not to be prayed to. Also, after the Day of Pentecost (found in Acts Chapter 2), Mary is not mentioned again in the New Testament. If God intended for us to pray to her, the Bible would mention her more often and would tell us to do so. However, we honor her the same way we do the other people who followed God's leading in the bible.
