name = Michael...
comments = Mr. Yeager My name is Michael... and I have been a member of the body of Christ since January 1st, 2006. I became a
Christian at the tender age of 38. I was a United States Marine from 1986 to 1991, serving my last six months in Desert Shield-Storm,
with 2ND Battalion, 2ND Marines, 2ND Mar Div. I have searched a many Church of Christ websites looking for anyone, someone to
address the issue of Christians serving in the military. I can not understand why the best and brightest members of Christ's body are
joining the military when they should be encouraged to go into the ministry of our Lord. Can you provide please sir, book, chapter
and verse giving us Christians authority to kill our fellow man under any circumstance. Your response would be greatly appreciated.

comments = Brian, I read the article concerning the authority of Jesus and I had a quick question to ask concerning human
institutions. I see you mentioned Florida College along with many other institutions as not having the authority to exist. My question
however is at what point does this College violate the scriptures. I'm uncertain because I've read (http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Florida_College) that it isn't supported by a particular religious body but is independent for doctrinal reasons, and this
makes it different from other bible schools. Please help me to understand where they violate scriptures in this. Aaron...

comments = Hi Brian I recently worshipped at another congregation in South Africa . (I am South African) During the service, a team
of singers were on the platform leading the singing with microphones (which drowned out our voices), anyway, 2 of the lead singers
were women. Please, if you have the time, will you give me your take on this. I would like a complete strangers opinion on the truth
of this matter according to the purity of scripture. Thanks a lot in anticipation, Brian. God bless Gill...

where are you from = Huntsville, AL
comments = Mr. Yeager, I have wondered for some time what something that no one seems to ever teach on. Since the Bible shows
us that we are all growing in Christ and that we all sin from time to time what sins will keep us from heaven? I really would appreciate
you answering that question. I like your website. I'll be back to check it out often. Thank you, Becky

comments = How can I or anyone know for sure if I am saved? There are so many different teachings, even within the church, to
have to decide what is right or wrong. It seems like everyone is sincere in teaching and yet who can know which are teaching the
word of God and which are teaching the words of men. I'd like to hear a sermon on this. I appreciate the lessons you have online.

know is why are there only one church but so many churches of christ here in el paso? shouldn't there just be one church for
spanish and one for english here? also, do you really think that 1 corinthians 1:10 is literal? can there really be united churches
when men are not always right before the eyes of jesus? thank you.

comments = I read your articles related to institutionalism. How do you distinguish what you have written with this (see my inserts) ...
If the Lord intended us to form human organizations (like preaching God's Word through posting it in written form on the internet) –
HE WOULD HAVE SAID SO. To deny the fact that God would have supplied us with Scriptures for organizations (like the world wide
web) doing the work of the local church, is to deny the all-sufficiency of the word of God (Deuteronomy 29:29, II Timothy 3:16-17, and II
Peter 1:3). Curious to know your thoughts.

that make it healthy and right to drink without abusing it?

comments = Dear brother, I am so glad that you have now this on your webpage. I learn so much from you. I hope you will be able to
fit the questions I have into your sermon this month. I listen to you every week and will love to have these answered for me.
1. Some times I am facing this question by the some the members of the different congregations. That is why God accepted King
David worship using Instruments ? why now god is ot accepting the same? 2. How do we answer the brethren when they ask if I am
qualified to be a preacher? 3. Are there any problems with the New King James bible? 4. How can we know we can use more than
one cup when drinking the fruits of the vine? 5. Is it wrong to have one man preaching instead of all of the brothers sharing the
preaching? 6. What are some verses you use to prove God is real? 7. Are pony tails on men sinful? I have a lot of question but I
think this will be enough for now. Maybe I can write more next month and hear those answered. We really hope you can come
sometime here to preach and work with the brothers here. In Christian Love, Vijay

the three days between His death and resurrection?

here is the answer... He was in Hades / Paradise (Luke 23:38-46; Acts 2:22-27).

question = I haven't heard any lessons from the pulpit on the providence of God. Many things happen in the lives of non-Christians
who say God has done things for them and heard their prayers, however, he only hears the prayers of the righteous. I just wanted to
know is there anywhere in scripture that tells us how God interacts with us in our daily lives and directs our paths to certain places
22. Local question: If I am married, my husband divorces and then remarries, may I then remarry?
