Bring It On-Line: Honor Your Mother and Father

The Bible states: "Honor your mother and father." What about step-parents-- does the Bible talk about step-parents? I have the same bad dream 2-3 times a week about being sent to a concentration camp. It affects my whole day and gives ... Read Transcript


TERRY: TIME THE ANSWER SOME

OF YOUR E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU.

PAT THIS FIRST ONE IS FROM

KATRINA, SHE SAYS THE BIBLE SAYS

HONOR YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER

WHAT ABOUT STEPPARENTS?

DOES IT TALK ABOUT STEPPARENTS?

PAT: IF YOU LOOK AT THE OLD

TESTAMENT, A LOT OF MEN HAD

MULTIPLE WIVES.

IF WIFE DIED, I AM SURE THE MEN

WOULD MARRY SOMEBODY ELSE.

ONCE THEY ARE MARRIED, THEY

BECOME THE WIFE.

THE WIFE IS THE MOTHER OF THE

CHILDREN.

AND I PRESUME STEPPARENTS HAVE

THE SAME ROLE AS PARENTS AND

SHOULD BE HONORED APPROPRIATELY.

AGAIN THAT WORD MEANS TO GIVE

WEIGHT TO THEM.

DOESN'T MEAN NECESSARILY COPY

EVERYTHING THEY DO.

BUT DO WHAT THEY SAY AND HONOR

THEM JUST LIKE IF YOU ARE IN THE

ARMY, YOU HAVE A MASTER

SERGEANT.

IF HE SAYS SOMETHING, YOU DO IT.

THAT IS HIS JOB.

THAT IS HIS OFFICE.

TERRY: YOU ARE ALSO HONORING

THE CHOICE OF YOUR PARENT THAT

MARRIED.

THIS IS TY, I BELIEVE THE BIBLE

IS GOD'S WORD TO US.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THE BIBLE IS

REALLY GOD'S WORD.

A FIVE YEAR OLD CAN BELIEVE IN

HIS FAVORITE FAIRY TALE, BUT

THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT IS TRUE.

HOW DO I BACK IT UP?

PAT: THE BIGGEST THING YOU

CAN SAY ABOVE ALL ELSE, I HAVE

BEEN TOUCHED BY THE BIBLE, GOD

HAS SPOKEN TO ME, CHANGED MY

LIFE THROUGHOUT BIBLE.

THAT IS YOUR TESTIMONY.

IF SOMEBODY WANTS SOMETHING THAT

REALLY WILL SPEAK TO THEM, I

RECOMMEND YOU GET A COPY OF MY

BOOK "THE SECRET KINGDOM" WHICH

GIVES PRINCIPLES IN THE BIBLE

THAT PERTAIN TO ALL MEN

EVERYWHERE.

LOOK AT THE TRUTH THAT IS HERE.

THIS IS THE TRUTH.

YOU CAN GET INTO OTHER THINGS,

THE BIBLE IS THE BASIS OF SO

MANY IMPORTANT CIVILIZATIONS.

CERTAINLY THE FOUNDATION OF THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

GREATEST NATION ON EARTH.

MORE THAN ANYTHING, YOUR OWN

EXPERIENCE, I BELIEVE THIS IS

THE WORD OF GOD, IT SPEAKS TO

ME.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO INTO -- YOU

CAN GO INTO BIBLICAL

ARCHAEOLOGY, ALL THESE THINGS,

ALWAYS BE SOMEBODY THAT WILL

SHOOT HOLES.

YOUR OWN PERSONAL TESTIMONY,

THEY CAN'T DO THAT TO.

TERRY: I DON'T KNOW ABOUT

YOU, PAT, I LOVE PROPHECY.

THE FULFILLMENT OF IT IS SO

INCREDIBLE THROUGHOUT SCRIPTURE.

THAT IS ANOTHER DEFINING THING.

PAT: YOU HAVE TO KNOW ENOUGH

ABOUT THE BIBLE TO GO INTO IT

AND SEE ALL THE PROPHECIES THAT

PERTAIN TO JESUS.

THE ODDS ARE ASTRONOMICAL OF ANY

ONE PERSON FULFILLING THOSE

PROPHECIES.

TERRY: A PONZI SCHEME TOOK

ALL MY LIFE SAVINGS AND LEFT ME

LIVING ON SOCIAL SECURITY, ONLY

$700 A MONTH.

HOW AT 68 YEARS OLD CAN I GET

SAVINGS.

I AM A SINGLE FEMALE.

PLEASE DUE TO SHAME, DON'T

MENTION MY NAME.

PAT: GOD LOVES YOU.

YOU ARE A WIDOW.

TERRY: IT DOESN'T SAY.

PAT: GOD LOVES YOU.

FIRST OF ALL, YOU SAID YOU HAVE

A HOME.

YOU DIDN'T SAY HOW MUCH EQUITY

IS IN THAT HOME.

IF IT IS POSSIBLE, IF YOU HAVE

50-$100,000 IN EQUITY, YOU MIGHT

WANT TO SELL YOUR HOME.

MOVE INTO A SMALLER PLACE, AN

APARTMENT IF YOU CAN FIND A

SUITABLE PLACE.

USE THE MONEY TO INVEST IN

SOMETHING THAT PAYS 6-7%.

I FIND THESE MASTER LIMITED

PARTNERSHIPS, THEY PAY LIKE

CLOCK WORK.

VERY WELL FINANCED.

GOVERNMENT TREASURES -- IN TERMS

OF SOMETHING LIKE THAT, YOU

COULD GET 6-7%.

IF YOU HAD $100,000 EQUITY AND

6% ON IT, THAT IS $6,000 A YEAR.

THAT WOULD HELP.

TERRY: OKAY.

THIS IS ANGELA, I HAVE THE SAME

BAD DREAM 2-3 TIMES A WEEK BEING

SENT TO A CONCENTRATION CAMP.

IT GIVES ME ANXIETY.

IS THERE A SPECIFIC SCRIPTURE I

CAN READ.

TERRY:

PAT: 103RD PSALM, BLESS HIS

HOLY NAME THAT HEALS ALL YOUR

DISEASES.

BLESS THE LORD OH MY SOUL.

READ THE PSALMS.

MY SOUL EXALTED SELF.

READ THOSE AND SAY THOSE OVER

AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

LET THEM BE PART OF YOUR BEING.

WRITE THEM DOWN ON LITTLE KARPDZ

CARDS AND THINK ABOUT THEM.

TERRY: THAT IS TAKING EVERY

THOUGHT CAPTIVE.

FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE.

PAT: THESE OTHER THINGS I

DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE COMING

FROM.

YOU PROBABLY WATCHED A SPECIAL

ON THE JEWISH CONCENTRATION

CAMPS OR NAZIS.

REBUKE THE THOUGHTS.

TERRY SAYS TAKE THEM CAPTIVE.

TERRY: THIS IS BRIAN, WHY

DID JESUS PICKED JUDAS TO BE HIS

DISCIPLE?

PAT: IT WAS PROPHESIED HE WHO

HAS BROKEN BREAD.

JESUS KNEW ONE WAS ACCORDING TO

PROPHECY GOING TO DENY HIM.

HE WAS FULFILLING PROPHECY.

ALL I CAN FIGURE.

JESUS KNEW EVERYTHING.

HE KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

TERRY: THIS IS MRS. CM.

WHEN I PRAY THE FATHER, GOD, IN

THE NAME OF JESUS THROUGHOUT

HOLY SPIRIT, I KNOW HE HEARS ME.

WHEN I DISCUSS MY PROBLEMS WITH

OTHERS, IS IT POSSIBLE FOR

DEMONS TO OVERHEAR MY WORDS AND

REPORT BACK TO THEIR MASTER?

HOW DOES THE ENEMY GET HIS

INFORMATION ABOUT ME?

CAN DEMONS EVES DROP OR WANDER

TO AND FRO AND OBSERVE?

PAT: YOU ARE TOO SMART BY

HALF?

YOU HAVE TOO MANY PROBLEMS YOU

HAVE CREATED FOR YOURSELF.

GOD'S IN CHARGE OF THIS WORLD.

LET'S LIVE BEFORE HIM AND PRAISE

HIM AND WALK IN HIS GOODNESS AND

NOT WORRY ABOUT IF A DEMON IS

LISTENING TO YOU.

ONE THERE THAT WILL HAPPEN, IF

YOU HAVE AN ANOINTING OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT AND REVEAL IT TO

THOSE UNBELIEVERS, BIBLE SAYS

DON'T CAST YOUR PEARLS BEFORE

SWINE, LEST THEY WILL TURN AND

REND YOU.

IT WILL HURT YOU AND WOUND YOUR

SPIRIT.

I WOULDN'T WORRY ABOUT DEMONS

LISTENING TO WHAT YOU ARE

SAYING.

YOU ARE GOING TO PRAISE GOD AND

PRAISE THE LORD OUT LOUD AND IN

THE FULLNESS.

PRAISE THE LORD, IF DEMONS ARE

TUNED IN, THEY WILL HEAR IT AND

QUAKE WITH FEAR.

TERRY: THAT IS TRUE, PRAISE

MAKES THEM RUN.

THIS IS A VIEWER THAT SAYS IS IT

WRONG TO ASK GOD FOR BLESSINGS,

IF YOU GIVE SOMETHING TO CHARITY

AND ASK GOD TO BLESS YOU, I KNOW

IT IS BETTER TO GIVE THAN

RECEIVE.

PAT: IF THERE WASN'T A REWARD

IN IT, JESUS WOULDN'T HAVE TOLD

US ABOUT IT.

I GUESS HE WANTS US TO THINK

ABOUT IT.

GIVE AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU

PRESSED DOWN AND RUNNING OVER.

THAT IS THE PRINCIPLE.

WHY NOT SAY WHAT JESUS SAID.

HE SAID IF IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE

KEPT SECRET HE WOULDN'T HAVE

SAID IT.

IT IS PART OF HIS TEACHING.

WE RECEIVE THAT.

WE DON'T GIVE IN ORDER TO GIVE

SOMETHING BACK.

WE GIVE BECAUSE THERE IS A NEED,

BECAUSE WE LOVE GOD.

WE WANT TO HELP SOMEBODY THAT

HAS A NEED.

WE GIVE BECAUSE WE LOVE THE LORD

AND THEN IN A SENSE THERE IS

NOTHING WRONG AND OUR SPIRIT TO

SAY I FULFILL YOUR WORD,

THEREFORE I RECEIVE THE BLESSING

YOU HAVE PROMISED.

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH

THAT.

TERRY: THAT IS ALL THE TIME

WE HAVE FOR E-MAIL.

THAT WAS GREAT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWERS.
