Bring It On-Line: Restoration of Marriages

Do you ever get words of restoration of marriages during your prayer time? Some people believe that when Jesus died on the cross, He went to Hell to take our punishment. Is this true or not? Can you tell me why reformed theology has come about? ... Read Transcript


TERRY: PAT THIS FIRST E-MAIL

QUESTION COMES FROM ANGELA, MY

HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN MARRIED

16 YEARS AND HAVE 4 CHILDREN.

HE HAS CHEATED ON ME THE ENTIRE

MARRIAGE.

HE SAYS HE HAS GIVEN HIS LIFE TO

THE LORD, HE HAS BEEN BAPTIZED

AND READS THE BIBLE.

I FEEL HE IS NOT CHEATING

BECAUSE OF HIS TRANSPARENT

BEHAVIOR, STILL HIS PAST

BEHAVIOR HAUNTS ME.

HAVE I REALLY FORGIVEN HIM?

PAT: ANGELA, THAT IS TOUGH,

ONLY GOD HAS THE POWER TO PUT

THAT IN THE SEA OF

FORGETFULNESS.

WHEN YOU STAND PRAYING, ODD

AGAINST ANY, FORGIVE.

SO YOU FORGIVEN HIM, CONTINUE TO

WALK AND HOPE AND PRAY THIS

THING WORKS OUT.

YOU HAVE CHILDREN TOGETHER, A

LIFE TOGETHER.

AND IT WOULDN'T HURT IF YOU

TALKED SOME TIME TO THIS GUY AND

SAID HOW COME YOU DID THIS?

YOU KNOW, BE HONEST WITH ME.

HOW DID I FAIL?

WHAT COULD I HAVE DONE FOR YOU

THAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER.

TERRY: MAYBE AS YOU SAID,

WHEN YOU SAID EARLIER, SOMETIMES

THINGS HAPPEN IN A MAN'S LIFE

WHEN HE IS A YOUNG BOY AND

NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.

PAT: IF HE TALKS IT THROUGH

WITH HIS WIFE, SIT DOWN, SAY HOW

COME YOU DID THIS?

BE HONEST.

IF HE IS HONEST, IT WILL CLEAR

THE AIR.

THAT IS TOUGH.

MAYBE HE DOESN'T WANT TO TALK

ABOUT IT.

IT WILL HELP HIM AND YOU.

TERRY: HIS PAST BEHAVIOR

HAUNTEDS HER.

WHEN YOU FORGIVE SOMEONE, IT

TAKES TIME TO MOVE PAST.

PAT: SIXTEEN YEARS, THEY

LIVED TOGETHER AND CHILDREN,

MULTIPLE AFFAIRS ON AND ON.

HE IS A SERIAL ADULL TER.

TERRY: HI PAT, I LOVE

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB" BEST

PART IS WHEN YOU PRAY.

WHEN YOU PRAY FOR HEALING DO YOU

GET A WORD FOR RESTORATION OF

MARRIAGES?

I HAVE MANY FRIENDS THAT WATCH

THE SHOW AND PRAYING FOR

MARRIAGE RESTORATION.

PAT: RE WE PRAY FOR MARRIAGE.

THE LORD SAYS I HATE DIVORCE.

KING JAMES, HE TALKS ABOUT BEING

FAITHFUL TO YOUR WIFE OF YOUR

YOUTH.

HE PUTS THE LONELY INTO FAMILY.

HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT FAMILIES.

WHEN WE PRAY FOR THEM, HE

ANSWERS.

TERRY: THIS IS KATRINA, I

HAVE DEALT WITH ADDICTION MY

WHOLE LIFE.

MANY OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS WERE

ADDICTED.

I STILL STRUGGLE WITH ADDICTED

FAMILY MEMBERS.

DOES GOING TO AL NON CONFLICT

WITH LEADING A CHRISTIAN LIFE?

PAT: I THINK THE WOMAN THAT

STARTED AL NON WAS A CHRISTIAN.

VERY MOVING BOOK ABOUT WHAT SHE

HAD TO GO THROUGH.

TO GET TOGETHER WITH THE PEOPLE

THAT HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCES

AND TALK ABOUT IT.

OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING GOING ON.

MAYBE SPIRITUALLY, MAYBE GENETIC

THAT PREDISPOSES PEOPLE TO

ADDICTION TO VARIOUS TYPES OF

SUBSTANCES, YOU NEED HELP TO

DEAL WITH IT.

SO I DON'T THINK IT WILL

CONFLICT WITH YOUR CHRISTIAN

FAITH AT ALL.

TERRY: SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE

WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS, HE

WENT TO HELL TO DEAL WITH OUR

PUNISHMENT.

PAT: BIBLE SAYS HE WENT TO

HEAVEN TO PREACH.

HE TOOK THE SINS ON IF CROSS,

GOD SMOUED HIM AS HE BORE ON HIS

BODY ALL OF THE SINS OF MAN

KIND.

HE DIED FOR ALL OF US IN THAT HE

DIED, HE DIED ONCE.

HE DIDN'T GO TO HELL TO PAY THE

PRICE FOR YOUR SIN.

TERRY: JAY SAYS WHY IS THERE

SO MUCH REFORMED THEOLOGY

APPEARING THESE DAYS.

WORD REFORM MEANS TO MAKE

CHANGES.

ANY CHRISTIAN KNOWS GOD'S WORD

IS PERFECT.

PAT: MAY I RECOMMEND YOU

STUDY A LITTLE HISTORY.

REFORMATION CAME ABOUT AS A

PROTEST NEXT THE SACK DOAL

PRACTICES OF THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

A LOT OF THINGS INCLUDING

SELLING OF INDULGENCES AND

MARTIN LUTHER PUT HIS THESIS ON

THE WALL OF THE CHURCH IN

WHITENBURG.

THAT WAS THE REFORMATION.

OUT OF THIS HAS COME A NUMBER OF

THEOLOGIANS WHO WROTE IN THE

POST-CATHOLIC MODE.

MOST PROMINENT WAS JOHN KELVIN

FROM GENEVA.

THEY ARE CALLED REFORMED.

DUTCH REFORM, SWEDISH REFORM.

THAT IS WHAT IT IS ABOUT.

ISN'T THAT THEY ARE CONSTANTLY

REFORMING.

[LAUGHTER].

IT IS THE NAME OF THE THEOLOGY

THAT CAME OUT OF THE

REFORMATION.

TERRY: THAT IS ALL THE TIME

WE HAVE FOR QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU FOR THAT HISTORY

LESSON.

PAT: HAVE TO HAVE HISTORY.
