Pastor Chris Says banner

...sometimes I feel reluctant to pray.

Prayer time

Dear Pastor Chris, I sometimes feel reluctant to pray. What do I do to change this?

Answer:

To say that you feel reluctant to pray is like saying you feel reluctant to eat; you will lose weight. You’ll begin to change the day you decide to act wisely. Wisdom means knowing what to do and doing it. Nothing is going to change until you choose to pray. At any point in your life, you can decide what you want to do and nothing can stop you.

astrology

Thank you Pastor for this opportunity to ask you questions directly. Pastor, is anything wrong with astrology? I want you to please expatiate on this.

Must we fall in love with guys ...

Teen love?

As Teenagers, must we fall in love with guys at church or can we date outsiders?

Answer:

Now, there is a similar question: “Are we allowed to fall in love at this age?” I did address these issues during the program that we had for the teenagers – the conference that we had. I dealt extensively on this, but I want to say a few things here. There are certain things that you are just not allowed to do at certain stages and at this stage of your life; even though you are capable of falling in love with someone, you are not allowed to.

Help Me !!! I Have An Addiction...

Stop Addiction

Sir, how do I get over my addictions? I have tried speaking to them but I am still tempted to do the same things. What should I do?

Answer:

You’re not supposed to be talking or speaking to your addictions. You’re supposed to be speaking to yourself, not to your addictions; so, there’s where you were wrong. You can talk to your addictions all year long and nothing will change. You talk to yourself. Now, why 

that is very important, Proverbs 25: 28 “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.” You see, the man who has no rule over his spirit, who has no control over his spirit, is like a city that is broken down and without walls, which means ‘anything goes.’
