Can Gravity Actually Affect Time?

It seems that gravity, or velocity possibly, are the main factors in determining time. Time, also, in dependant on your view point. When moving at the speed of light you are not effected by time( ask Einstein) or so we think. maybe time is occuring at the same rate to the person moving the speed of light, but to an observer, with a different perspective, time seems infinite. A black hole pulls objects at speed greater than the speed of light racing toward the singularity, Obviously the object must hit at some point, it can not be suspended in the even horizon for ever. So Time is only relative, can exist in many dimentions, and can , in a way be altered by gravity.
