  1. I like the Style of every band mentioned in the title, but not the content of some their lyrics. Can anyone suggest me some Christian Bands that sound like them? or even some Bands with Christian members that don't curse and glorify Ungodly things? Not the obvious like P.O.D. but ones I might not have heard of... any help is much appreciated!
  2. Well, I went to Uni and had a pretty bad year. Ended up moving back in with the parentals around this time last year and got on the work grind. Finally got back in school this semester and have been doing the whole work-school-eat-sleep schedule for a few months now. Anyway, I found myself sitting down at the same computer desk I used to frequent years ago and decided to have a little flashback friday. Wanted to see if anyone was still around. I guess so! lol. So much has changed for me s...

      since the days of browsing CTF for hours and hours everyday. And it seems CTF has been changing as well. Who else stuck around?

    2. Christopherjr


      And how are you??

  3. Very long time. CTF looks weird man! haha

  4. I feel like I've made a thread about this before, but I can't find it? Anyway, I've read through the girl's thread about this and I just can't imagine it being the same for guys. Do you think there can be masturbation without lust? I don't know about you guys, but physical stimulation alone doesn't do it for me... Not that I'm advocating it, but I'm not technically denouncing it either. If one could masturbate without lust then I'd see no issue, I just can't imagine it being possible. So, what about you guys? Do you think it can happen, or have you personally experienced it? I know the majority of threads in the Men's 16+ is about this, but come on... it is pretty relevant to Christian teens.
  5. My problem is with this. I can see a Christian's rationale for making marijuana illegal, however from a secular stand point it doesn't make much sense. As far as marijuana harming one's body, most research points away from this.
  6. I say decriminalise it all. Do your research. Weed is nearly the safest of all drugs (behind only Shrooms and LSD). It relaxes and relieves pain. Cannabinoids promote neural growth where nicotine and caffeine discourage it. It can be taxed, immediately generating billions. Researchers are finding more medical use everyday. If decriminalised and amnesty given for all prisoners sentenced for weed related offenses, our prison population would drop drastically. No more wasting time and resources chasing harmless users and sellers. I don't see any negatives, actually.
  7. Interesting. I would say something about not restricting/suppressing fringe beliefs in the SoF, but I suppose I'm not here frequently enough anymore to care quite honestly. Also, would it be possible to get our "Settings" button back?! After the update a while back, the settings button between "My Profile" and "Log Out" turned into a small, invisible (yet clickable) feature.

    U.S. Intervention in Syria

    I, for one, was exceedingly happy when the House of Commons voted against action in Syria. I only wish Obama would listen to the people for once. Not that other presidents have traditionally listened any better, just that, when the public is so resoundingly against his decision, surely an elected official should take note.

    Favourite 1980s childhood cartoon?

    "Captain Planet! He's a hero! Gonna take pollution down to ZE-RO! He's a super-powered guy, and he's fighting on the planet side!"

    I'm rather egalitarian. I voted Essentialist Feminism because it sounded like a sane position amidst a list of crazy, overthought hooplah. Men and women are different, but equally as "good" (if one were inclined to label entire halves of the population in such finite terms). Any indication that one gender/race/etc. is inherently better than another leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    Favorite Batman?

    Totally got Zabby on this one. I've had far more exposure to Kevin Conroy's Batman than any other and his is the best in my opinion, if only for sheer familiarity. Also, love Will Friedle as Terry McGinnis.

    Get to know you better

    Yeah, my buddy has a weight set and we work out at his house. My back is probably the strongest part of my body, currently. If you could only listen to one artist/band for the rest of your life, who'd it be?

    Structured prayer vs. spontaneous prayer

    I feel traditional/structural denoms would incorporate structured prayer more liberally than others. Because I was raised strictly on spontaneous prayer, I use nothing else. Sans meal prayers, generally.

    Youth rights

    You've completely disregarded the spiel about the history and meaning of "retard" and its sister words "idiot," "imbecile," "moron," "cretin," etc. They ALL began as the literal term for one who was mentally disabled, yet as they acquired a more widespread use (particularly as an insult), they lost their original, medical meaning (and overly offensive connotation). Thus the word "retard," though the most recent example (and as such, not fully devoid of the overly evocative link to the handicap), is destined to become an acceptable, if insulting, term. Your mistake is ignoring the fact that "idiot" and "retard" began with both the same definition and the same purpose. "Dam'n" and "drat" simply fell into the same usage. This all came about when LewieGee felt inclined to call Ashley immature for using said word.

    Youth rights

    I'm sorry, but having not lived there nor having any consistent communication with anyone from over the pond, I would have no clue as to the weight of those words in the UK. I simply meant to point out that the term "retard" (like the terms "idiot," "moron," and "imbecile") is almost entirely disjunct from the population it originally described (the mentally disabled). Those who use the word "retard" should not be subjected to such hypocritical stigmata when the accusers have more than likely used a myriad of its sister words. Regardless, this whole diatribe is utterly OT. ---------- Post added at 04:12 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:08 PM ---------- I responded to most of this with the previous. Point was, throwing stones at those who use "retard" when you yourself have probably used "idiot" is imbecilic (see what I did there?). EDIT: My apologies for the punctuation remark. It appears the US and UK have different policies regarding that rule.

    Youth rights

    The whole stigma with the word "retard" is retarded anyway. Did you not know that nearly every one of our insults on a person's intellect began as a literal medical term? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retard#History_of_the_terminology Also, if you're going to correct someone, at least try to use correct sentence structure. Punctuation goes inside quotation.
  17. Now, I don't mean "alien lifeforms" like the bacteria on Mars. I mean legitimate, intelligent life. Yes, no, maybe?
  18. I was just thinking, if you use a substance and the side effects kill you, did you technically kill yourself? You can substitute drugs, or heck, even fast food.

    Rate the Above song

    10/10 for bumping
  20. I mean... I smoke Black and Milds occasionally, but I don't smoke regularly at all. This question wasn't really about myself though. It was mainly just a thought.

    Theistic Evolution and Genesis

    -Man evolved. -When man reached sentience/sapience. -No, it is a metaphor for man's fall from the will of God. -Yes, prior to whatever the literal fall consisted of. -Yes, but it probably only truly flooded the greater part of the middle east rather than the entire globe. -The entire book uses a combination of literal and metaphorical terms to relay an actual account of events to an ancient Jewish culture.

    All-Time Favorite Song?

    I really think if I were to do this, I would need to give a couple of my favourite songs from every genre... there's simply no way I could decide on one or two songs from the vast and ever expanding pool of songs and artists I like.

    Skillet - RISE

    American Noise, Sick Of It, Rise, Not Gonna Die. Though, I don't think I really gave the last two a fair chance, because upon second listen I already like them better.
