recorded as the first person to give tithes. "And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hands. And he gave him tithes of all" (Genesis 14: 20). Likewise Jacob vowed to give God a tenth of all, (Genesis 28: 20-22). Tithing was incorporated into the law of Moses, (Malachi 3: 10). And likewise incorporated into the church of Jesus Christ, (1 Corinthians 9: 13-14). There is a blessing in tithing to the Lord.

IS SPEAKING IN OTHER TONGUES FOR TODAY

Speaking in tongues is controversial to many because of their unbelief. This is one of the signs that Jesus promised would follow the believers after he rose from the grave. "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover" (Mark 16: 17-18). I have noticed that the only people who deny that speaking in tongues is for today are the ones who have not received the baptism of the Holy Ghost. To those who have received the baptism or infilling of the Holy Ghost, this is not an issue. The scripture proof for this evidence is recorded in, (Acts 2: 4), (Acts 10: 44-46), (Acts 19: 6), (1 Corinthians 14: 18), and (Isaiah 28: 11). There will always be those who will deny that speaking in tongues is for today and that is because they have yet to experience this wonderful blessing.

WHEN SHOULD WOMEN COVER THEIR HEADS
 According to the Word of God, women are commanded to cover their heads during public worship. The apostle Paul when writing to the church at Corinth said, "But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven" (1 Corinthians 11: 5). This is speaking of public worship because Paul's main concern was order in the church while edifying the saints of God. Contrary to what some pastors have taught, instructing women to cover their heads at all times 24/7. This would also mean that men should never cover their heads (put a hat on) 24/7. Head coverings were instructed for public worship. The woman's long hair is her natural covering, therefore she is covered at other times as long as she does not cut her hair. But in public worship, women are required to have a spiritual or religious covering (veil, hat, or shawl) upon their heads. In the bible days women wore a veil which made it easy to cover their heads when necessary. Notice the scripture, "For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a veil, and covered herself" (Genesis 24: 65). Wearing veils made it easy for women to cover themselves when necessary. At other times their veils could rest upon their shoulders until it was needful to cover themselves.

WHAT IS GOD'S STANCE ON HOMOSEXUALITY

First of all, God loves all men and women. The Lord is against sin but he is willing to save all of mankind. "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3: 9). The bible says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" (Leviticus 18: 22). The scripture also says, "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (Romans 1: 27-28). 


Even though this society is trying to justify homosexuality, God is totally against what society and some churches are allowing. Also as judgment came upon Sodom and Gomorrah for their ungodly deeds likewise judgment will come upon those who insist on living this kind of lifestyle. The remedy for deliverance is found in (Acts 2: 38). Also read (1 Corinthians 6: 9-11).

IS JESUS THE SON OF GOD NOW    

Another misconception among many oneness (apostolics) is that Jesus is no longer the Son of God. There are those who contend that once Jesus rose from the grave and ascended into heaven he gave up his Sonship. This is not true according to the scriptures. When apostle John wrote the book of Revelation after Jesus had risen from the grave. He wrote the message to the church in Thyatira this way, "And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; (Revelation 2: 18). John yet addressed Jesus as the Son of God even after he had risen from the grave and had ascended into heaven. There are many more scriptures which will prove this point but we will only use a few. Apostle John wrote, "Whosoever shall confess that Jesus [is] the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God" (1 John 4: 15). "Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus [is] the Son of God?" (1 John 5: 5). Even after apostle Paul was converted it is written, "And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that he [is] the Son of God" (Acts 9: 20).
          The notion that Jesus is no more the Son of God is conceived through the words which the centurion spoke upon seeing the death of Jesus, "Now when the centurion and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this [was] the Son of God" (Matthew 27: 54). The centurion spoke these words because he saw the death of Jesus but it's not recorded that he saw the resurrection of Jesus. Are we to believe what the centurion spoke, or what the apostles wrote! The Sonship of Jesus will continue to "the end when he shall deliver up the kingdom to God" (1 Corinthians 15: 24). When Jesus rose from the grave he yet revealed the offices he operate within, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28: 19).
SHOULD CHILDREN BE BAPTIZED

To answer this question we must stand on the Word of God. Baptism is for those who are mature enough to believe and repent. When a child is not old enough to believe and repent, they are not old enough to be baptized. The bible says, "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned" (Mark 16: 16). Even though there are false churches which will sprinkle infants, calling it a baptism. This is not founded upon the Word of God.

IS IT BIBLICAL FOR CHRISTIANS TO GIVE TITHES
 It is absolutely biblical for Christians to give tithes and offerings. Some would suggest that tithing was for the people under the law. Abram (Abraham) is
