  1. In my e-mails I am often informed that I may have already won about $1,000 a week or more for life. While that would be nice, I just don't take it seriously. Nobody should. What is serious, is that right now, I'm having some serious money problems just trying to get me through the month. I am a retired individual. My entire income consists of monthly Social Security and EBT Food Stamp payments. I have more than enough in my EBT account. But I'm just managing to get by on the Social Security payments; and I'm not sure if I'll have enough to pay for the things I'll need, other than food, before I receive my next Social Security funds transfer on June 1st. I know Jesus' words: “I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? (Matthew 6: 25-27) I'm not asking for anyone to send me money. I have prayed to the Lord to help me get through this very difficult time; and I have no doubt that He will. Just pray for me; along with anyone else on our Christian writers website; along with everyone else in the same situations; or much worse situations than I have to deal with. I ask in Jesus Name. Amen

    Face In The Sand

    What is actually shown in the photograph? Is it a sand dune, that just happens to look like a face? If so, I wouldn't make more of it than that. Now your title says "Face of God". I would not worship a sand dune that someone imagines would look like the face of God. That would be idolatry. The Bible says we should seek the face of God. I don't understand what that means. I know He hears my prayers, which means I have the ear of God. I also receive a multitude of blessings, from the hand of God. I receive guidance from the Bible, and faithful preachers of the Gospel. That means I hear the voice of God. There are other things that I'm not sure how to express. But I don't understand what is meant by seeing the face of God. I suppose that will be reserved for after my life in this world, when I come into His presence. As for that, I'm in no hurry. I can very patiently wait.

    This Godless Society

    This is something I wonder about. The US Constitution clearly states, "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, nor prohibiting the free practice thereof." In Britain, on the other hand, I thought that one of the Queen's titles was "Defender of the Faith"; and Parliament is "The Queen's Government". Wouldn't that make your Government responsible for maintaining the Church of England, instead of dismantling it? This morning, I watched the televised live broadcast of the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and his bride Meghan, in a fully packed Church. I think they were wed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Then there was a sermon about love, preached by a black American pastor. This gave the impression of a Nation strong in the faith. Were they all just putting on a show?

    What Content Is Or Isn't Acceptable On This Website?

    Thank you. I fully intend to wait to see what upper management says. I hope it was acceptable for me to post the link to a different website, as Phy requested. Thank you again.

    What Content Is Or Isn't Acceptable On This Website?

    The story, consisting of approximately 18,000 words, divided into 9 chapters, on 43 pages, using microsoftword format, is available on writing.com. Here is the link: https://www.writing.com/main/books/item_id/2134276-Chanitok-High If anyone reading this is also a member of that website, he or she is welcome to leave a review there. Thank you.
  6. I have written a story titled "Chanitok High", concerning Christian high school students, living in a "Politically Correct Community"; who find themselves in serious trouble with the local Powers That Be. Those Powers include their “Inclusive, Enlightened and Permissive” parents and classmates; members of their school’s faculty and administration; along with the arrogant, heretical Pastor of their local apostate Church. While some of the content may seem extreme, the story, which was originally written back in 2013, was intended as satire. The way thing are now, the satire seems to have become reality. My question is, that while the story is written from a Christian viewpoint, some of the dialogue could be described as rude and crude. I would give the story an "R" rating. Would that make it acceptable for posting here on this Christian writing website?

    I Need Prayers And Practical Advice.

    Hello everyone. I've just gone back on Youtube, and this time I think I got it right. My account is canceled; or at least I'm hopefully sure that it is. I've just received e-mail confirmation that my google account is deleted. I hope that includes my Youtube account. I'm not sure what else that means. I've just logged on here using google. Like I said, I find working with the internet very confusing. If my Youtube account actually is finally canceled, then I thank everyone for your prayers. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    I Need Prayers And Practical Advice.

    I didn't think I'd have to ask for prayers about this; but I'm having trouble understanding the directions, on how to cancel my Youtube account. Instead of a few simple clicks, that website's posted a video, showing what to click and where; but it doesn't lead to the exact spot where I can begin. I wonder if it's some kind of run around, so that people will give up trying to cancel in frustration. Would anybody reading this know how to cancel a youtube account? If so, would you please explain it to me in a few clear and simple phrases? When it comes to working with the internet, I sometimes just have to be led by the hand. I'm praying for guidance in this. Thank you. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    Pray For The End Of My Chronic Health Problems.

    Thank you. As soon as I posted that prayer request, my condition improved; and things are now back to the way they normally are. Not completely healed, but comfortably under control. I ask everyone to continue praying for my complete healing. In Jesus Name. Amen.
  10. I again ask for prayers concerning my health. I have chronic problems with my digestion and urinary tract. I'm on a high fiber diet, along with taking probiotic tablets for my digestion; Azo tablets for the urinary problems, and I've recently begun taking Zantac for gas relief. Usually, those are enough to keep things under control. This is one day when, I don't know why, but they haven't been enough. I also take Focus Formula tablets for brain health. That's right. "Smarter Pills". I found these to be much more beneficial than I'd expected. They not only improve the conscious part of the mind. They also improve the parts of the brain which control all the bodily functions. I am 72 years old, and with all these nutritional supplements taken together, along with my walking about an hour a day, every day, at a vigorous pace, I'm usually in very good shape for a man my age. I know I'm in much better shape than my father was at this age. I think that's a good way to measure yourself. I consider this all as blessings from the Lord. However, this day, as I said, none of that seems to be enough. I ask everyone who reads this to join me in prayer for the Lord's complete healing for myself and everyone else with the same problems. Thank every one of you. I ask in Jesus Name. Amen.

    The Mom Song

    I often pray to the Lord about this, asking Him what He wants me to write. The only answer I've gotten so far is, "Write Godly things. Write righteous things." I've replied, "Can you narrow that down please?" "Everything you write should be written in a Godly and righteous way. If it can't, then don't write it, or stop writing what you've begun." I've replied, "Thank you; but is there a specific work that you want me to write, in a way that is Godly and righteous?" I patiently await His reply. Until then, I'll stay here working with Christianwriters.com. I think this is where the Lord wants me, He has me here, posting my writings, giving reviews and replies; and hopefully improving in righteousness and Godliness; with help from members of this website. Thank all of you. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    The Mom Song

    I hope you've had a very pleasant Mothers Day, along with everyone who sees this video you've posted here. This performance really brought back memories for me about my childhood. Not only about my mother, but also my teachers, the neighbor ladies, aunts, my big sister, etc. Memories about all their endless nagging and scolding, and how much I hated being a schoolboy. I hate remembering my childhood because of them, along with my classmates who were also constantly picking on me. I think that's why I'm having such a strong reluctance about writing this story we've been discussing. Happy Mothers Day again.

    Happy Mother's Day!

    Until last year, when I had to move from my old Community of Huntington Station, on Long Island, I attended the nearby First Presbyterian Church of Greenlawn, New York. Every year, on the day before Mothers Day, we have a Mother/Daughter Breakfast, prepared by male members of the Congregation, in which I regularly took part, helping set up the tables and chairs, and setting the tables. The breakfast meal itself is prepared by a professional chef, who's a member of the Congregation, and volunteers his services. I'd been taking part in it for more than ten years. Before then, whenever Mothers Day came around, I always felt uncomfortable, because my own mother is gone. Since I've been taking part, I've been feeling much better about the whole celebration. During the first one I helped set up, there was a pile of roses lying on a table near the entrance to the fellowship hall. The cook asked me to hand one rose to every mother seated at a table. As I did so, they all smiled pleasantly and were very gracious. I know this all sounds thoroughly routine. Ordinary people doing the ordinary things that you'd expect. However, while I was handing out the roses a thought occurred to me. What I was thinking, was that some of the women there were widows, whose children were grown and had moved away. What one or more of them needed most, just at that moment, was for a gentleman to hand her a rose. That's what I was doing, and I've felt good about every Mothers Day since then. Thank the Lord for our mothers, and for gracious gentlemen who treat them as ladies. Amen.

    I Am In Need Of Christian Fellowship.

    Thank you. I truly appreciate all the positive replies, prayers and fellowship I've received from so many members of this website. If I ever do I figure out why the Lord had me move to this exact spot, I'll let all of you know. All praise and thanks to the Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    Question About An Article I Read

    Just send them a reply pointing out their errors. You might call the errors heresies, or blasphemies. Then ask them to repent, letting them know they are being prayed for. In Jesus Name. Amen.
