There seems to be a lot of "talk" of separation of church and state these days, what does the Bible have to say about it?

Someone told me that Jesus was coming back to the earth again and that I should "get ready". What did they mean by that?
Since most of my life is now past I feel that I am "too old" to become a Christian. When would it be too late?
I have gone to church, but I don't get the feeling I'm looking for. Is there something wrong with that?
I try to live a Christian life, but people still get mad at me and make fun of me. They are so hard to deal with, what can I do?
I have met someone that I want to be with the rest of my life, but what is the big deal about marriage?
It is amazing how many people simply "hope" they will make it to heaven. It's a lot like putting the human race on a ladder and then saying that the more good deeds a person does, the higher on the rungs he goes, with the lowest scoundrel on the bottom and the most saintly on the top. Then if they were ask to select which rung on which God would draw the line for salvation, most would respond that the cutoff is just below their rung. Then they play a balancing scale game with their good versus their evil deed but cannot know the outcome until the end.
This is why we must rely on what God's Word says, as in Ephesians 2:8 &9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Salvation does not come through comparison with others or through good works, it can only come through faith in Jesus. If you have never trusted Christ, won't you do it today? It is not through trying your best, salvation is through putting your trust in Jesus Christ.
At one time I accepted Jesus as my Saviour and started going to church. Why did it seem that I had more problems after I started trying to serve God?
It takes up all of my time right now for me to get established in my business. What does it hurt to wait till I am better situated to be a Christian a
Sometimes Christians tell me that I need to be "saved", but I am as good as other people, so why do they make a big fuss about it?
The "big fuss" you are referring to centers around a place called Calvary on the biggest date in all of recorded history when Jesus died on the cross for the sin of all mankind. Romans 5:8 states "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us". God said we are sinners, and payment had be made for our sins in order for us to go to heaven.
Orchestra players do not get their tones from each other, but from a standard (such as a piano or tuning fork), builders have to use a level, a plumb line and square. The standard we must follow is not based on what others do, but by what we as individuals do based on the Word of God. You are not saved or lost by the deeds of others. You must realize you are a sinner and accept the payment for your sin that Jesus has already paid by dying on Calvary's cross and believe that Jesus arose from the dead to receive the gift of salvation. If you haven't accepted Christ, don't put it off another day. DO IT TODAY!
Isn't it narrow-minded to claim that Christ is the only way to God? It may be right for some, but it certainly isn't for me.
I have some very important decisions to make about my future. What would it hurt to call a "psychic hot-line"?

As a teenager, it seems like adults won't take me serious when I tell them that I've given my life to Jesus. How can I convince them?
"purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself..". You too can be an example of what a Christian should be in the words that you speak, your lifestyle, in the love you show toward others (even your little brother and sister), in your attitude, the way you demonstrate your trust in God and in your godly morals. Youth is not a time to "sow your wild oats", because whether you are a Christian or not, you will reap what you have sown such as the sickness that comes from the abuse of our bodies (lung cancer resulting from cigarette smoke, or cirrhosis caused by alcoholism, or mental illness brought about by narcotics usage). BE AN EXAMPLE NOW and realize that you can be a testimony for Christ regardless of your age.
