    In addition to providing uplifting music, K-LOVE has eight full-time pastors to give you Christian advice and as you walk through the challenges of life. The following are some common answers to questions that listeners have about marriage, faith, the Bible and a host of other topics. If you have a question for one of our pastors not listed below, feel free to contact us.


    Question: "Is the end of the world really coming?" - Marie, NM
    Answer: On the hearts of many people are the billboards and flyers people see with words that read something like this, "Jesus is coming on May21st." This campaign has raised a lot of questions. This is the one thing I do know; The time of the Second Coming is unknown. In fact, Jesus stated that only the Father knew the time. He told His disciples on the day He ascended: "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority." (Acts 1:8, NASB) We are told in Luke 19 to, "Occupy till I come." Can you imagine if all of the energy we have spent trying to figure out when he is coming back was instead focused on getting the message of Christ's love to our world; just what kind of world that would be! Occupy means to live, to work, and to be a part of the community helping make it a better place. We have a great message of hope; share it with your neighbour and friend. My hope is we will focus on beginnings not endings in people lives and see just what the Lord will do.
    Question: "How can I encourage people but not make then uncomfortable by talking about God/Jesus/Bible?" Matt, FL
    Answer: It’s natural to feel uneasy about talking to people about Jesus. That’s why being a positive and encouraging person is so important. We live in a negative world; a world where most people would rather put others down as opposed to encouraging them. When we stay positive no matter what's happening, we stand out. Mix that with encouraging people and they will want to know what makes you different. Everyone can do that by looking for the good rather than the negative. Tell people how much you appreciate them and why. When you built people up like this they will come and talk to you. They will ask you questions and that will give you the opportunity to share how's Jesus has changed your life.
    Question: "Is it wrong to seek revenge?" Mark, UK
    Answer: As Christians, we are to follow the Lord Jesus’ command to “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” Matthew 5:44, leaving the vengeance to God. It is tempting to try to take on the role of God and seek to punish those who we feel deserve it. But because we are sinful creatures, it is impossible for us to take revenge with pure motives. This is why the Bible contains the command “Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD” (Leviticus. 19:18). Unlike us, God never takes vengeance from impure motives. His vengeance is for the purpose of punishing those who have offended and rejected Him. So with that in mind we should leave revenge to the one who can repay with a pure heart. Our hearts only want punishment and that come from a sinful heart.
    Question: "How do I put an end to negative thoughts?" Alex, OH
    Answer: This is a problem most people deal with on some level. Our imaginations are great if used correctly. Unfortunately, the imagination can work against us if we meditate on the wrong thing. Meditate just means to think about something over a period of time. Philippians chapter four gives us good insight into the dangers of meditating on the wrong things. For the sake of time I will only reference Philippians 4:8 although I would recommend looking at the context from the first eight verses. Verse eight says, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just… meditate on these things.” I didn’t include the whole list but they are all good things. The way to stop your mind from focusing on the negative is to be aware of your thoughts. If you start thinking negative, stop immediately and change your focus to something positive. It will take time to change you thinking patterns but it will get easier with practice. There are times when thoughts can become obsessive and may be associated with a medical condition. If you feel that your thoughts are out of control then you should consult your doctor.
