  • "My boy is Matthew...one of my twins now aged 12 years. He was the second one born and the last of my four boys!!! He was different from the others from the moment i set eyes on him....calmer but strong, caring, kind, the most loving of his brothers. He is quiet and a thinker, courageous and delightful in every way. My mummy who died when i was young always said if i had a son i should name him Matthew cos its such a gentle name for a little gentleman (tho he is now huge but still gentle!). Thats my wonderful boy!!! He so suits his name." Apr. 9, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named one of my boys Matthew. I had no idea at the time that it was the most popular name for boys. He was born in 1984. My intention was to give all my children somewhat distinct names, but I bungled this on his. So he has many, many friends named Matt. I opted to call him Matthew from the beginning as I did not like the name Matt so well--sounded too much like the mat people walk on to get into the door. I have no regrets for the name that we gave him though. It seems a softer name and for someone who is maybe quieter or more a thinker, and that suits him." Feb. 5, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My first thought, Pastor Parker, is to ask, What coensul has the apostle over you given to you? Jesus has structured His Church with a distinct order. Each fivefold minister has a pastor, that pastor is the apostle Jesus has ordained to cover and assist you in such matters. I remember many years ago when I too felt my pastoral ministry was not effective anymore. I almost quit. But Jesus brought someone into my life to speak into my life and seeded into me an encouragement and renewed the vision of God to stay my course in ministry. At times when we are distressed and confused, it may be difficult to hear from God directly. That does not mean He is not talking it just means we are unable to hear Him. That is when He speaks to us through His servant. The one best suited to do that is the one He has delegated authority to cover you and be a shepherd to you. If indeed Jesus has called you to pastor the church, DO NOT QUIT regardless of how you feel, what you see, what others say, or any other circumstances around you. He will guide you and reveal what changes should be made to be more fruitful and effective in your ministry. I bless you my brother and encourage you by the Holy Spirit to finish the course He has set for you. Bishop Randy Barnett" Mar. 17, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "Different from what most people think, Matthew is not Greek. Matteos is English but the root name is Mattityahu, which means YAHWEH'S GIFT. But more accurately, is YHWH's GIFT. The Greek translators mis translated or rather transliterated the verse "I AM". When the Father actually said YHWH which stands for Yod, Hey, Waw, Hey. So when Yeshua (Jesus) said I AM, He actually said YHWH, for which the Jews wanted to kill him because its a super duper holy name. And even the word Jew is a missed used word because there are actually 12 tribes of Israel, and the Jews are actually from the tribe of Judah and became known as Yahuden or Jews, you see there is no J in Hebrew, there is however a J in Greek and Latin. Ancestors missed up a lot of things for us No worry, YHW is good and will restore all things shortly, very shortly. Blessings." May. 6, 2009: Report as inappropriate
