Still Exalt the Lord? “There is some depression in the environment of Christian brothers and sisters at present. The government has made a series of changes in the relevant regulations. Currently, many churches have found it hard to refuse to follow. Especially in Henan, what model the churches have become makes us feel that our faith in the Lord Jesus is not as simple as before. Isn’t only the Lord in this temple? Why are there other songs praising the […]

Hard to Let Go “I’m 43 years old, was married but with no child. Divorced two years ago because of his extra-marital affair. I did have some self-reflection though, realizing of my pride, dis-obedience, lack of tolerance and understanding. I was baptized in 2013. I am the head of a foreign trade company, through which I made acquaintance with a Japanese-Chinese client who he is married and has children. I clearly expressed my Christians’ view on marriage and wished not […]

I’m Confused “I was brought to church and to believe in Jesus when I was still a toddler. Regularly did I keep going to church until I left for Beijing for college. In Beijing, I stayed at my uncle’s place and I didn’t attend church regularly. My uncle is a businessman. Right after my graduation last year, I got a job. That lasted for only half a year, then I have become unemployed for a few months. My mother let […]

Problem of Affection “My girlfriend and I both recognize that we are arranged by God. But there is an episode in the process. She has contacted her ex-boyfriend again. She feels that it takes time to overcome her weakness. With prayers in my heart, I know that God has designated her for me. But this circumstance has told me that I should be patient. Now the problem is that she is hesitant at this stage. She also does not want […]

Split Unwanted “I strongly disagree on hanging flags. There are several co-workers who disagree, but we have no choice. I do not want the church to split. It is very sad. Split does not comply with the biblical teaching. Church is a place for worshipping God. But other co-workers say that the Bible does not clearly indicate this. I think Christians should have a position. We should not ‘bend with the wind’. I believe that there are still many who […]

Parents’ Objection “My parents object to our relationship. My boyfriend and I are both Christians. We go to the same church and we discuss about our belief always. Parents oppose me to believe in Jesus and hate me going to church. They dislike my boyfriend and believe that I deserve a better one. My boyfriend is not young and his mother, who is also a Christian, has patiently awaited my reply. My parents’ objection is the hitch, that I cannot […]

I Feel Inferior “I cannot communicate with others. Anyone’s expression in eyes, words and gestures are bad for me. When I have pressure, I cannot stand and control myself. The feelings of inferiority and self-pity often make me closed. When I am sick or have difficulties, and I cannot solve problems by myself, I will close myself off. When I have recovered or my difficulties have passed, I will go out to get along with people and show them my […]

A Radio Fan “I am from Shandong. I have just listened to your program through shortwave. I feel that it is very meaningful. I wrote a letter to you about four years ago. I was just a radio fan at that time. Currently, I have also started to learn Christianity with the help of my girlfriend. She and her parents have been Christians for many years. They study the Bible after dinner every day. They also go to church at […]
