    Can Girls and Guys be just friends?

    No, it is not wrong for a boy to be friends with a girl. And yes, it is possible for a boy to be friends with a girl. God's formula for relations between boys and girls is not "if you are not related, or outside half your age plus seven, look to marry them, or else basically avoid them cause sooner or later you'll be romantically interested in them." Your friendship will be different to that of boy-boy or girl-girl, and it won't always be easy and without impure thaughts, but it is doable, and gets easier as people grow up a bit.

    Gay Marraige

    If you attribute a sin to genetics, as God is creator, you attribute sin to God's creative activity. Sin is something that is "desired" or "done", not something that comes from a gene pool. No sinful desire, it be to murder, steal, lust after someone else's wife, or a homosexual desire, is natural. Homosexuality is not genetic, it is a sin, in its desire and activity. The Apostle Paul says of homosexuals "such WERE some of you"; 1 Corinthians 6:11. They were homosexual, now they are not. The question here is, "is the Bible without error?". As it is, we know that anything said by man that conflicts with the Bible is wrong. The scientic case argued above conflicts with 1Corinthians, therefore it must be wrong. And, the science, from twin studdies to testimonies of former homosexuals, refutes the idea that homosexuality is genetic so natural anyway.

    To Spank or Not to Spank! That is the reoccuring question!

    I'm pro spanking. I was spanked/smacked. I thank my parents for that. And I will do the same to my children. There are a lot of reasons listed above, as to if and how we should spank, but the fact godly parents ought spank shouldn't be controversial. The Bible is very clear. Proverbs 13:24 ESV Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him. Proverbs 19:18 ESV Discipline your son, for there is hope; do not set your heart on putting him to death. Proverbs 29:15 ESV The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother. Proverbs 22:15 ESV Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him. Proverbs 23:13-14 Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. If you strike him with the rod, you will save his soul from Sheol. Proverbs 23:13 ESV Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you strike him with a rod, he will not die. God knows better than us. Where God has spoken, contradictory opinions of man should not even be considered.

    Texas and the abortion bill fight

    Praise the Lord that this passed, and I pray many more bills like it will pass!

    Texas and the abortion bill fight

    Go Texas! Not regretting my initial support of Rick Perry in the Republican race one bit. A pro life voice, good job! 20 week limit is a step in the right direction. Hopefully more states will follow the lead of Texas, and especially North Dakota (6 weeks). Hopefully, one day, legalised murder will be banished from the nation. The filibuster was a woman speaking in opposition to human life, and a despicable crowd supporting her in her barbaric campaign to ensure women can kill their children. May the Lord mercifully save her

    British soldier hacked to death

    Tragic, especially for his family. And the evil that is Islam is behind it. I hope the murderers repent and are executed (Gen 9:5-6). We are not wiser than God in the punishment of criminals.

    Is it acceptable to marry a non christian?

    No, 2 Corinthians 6:14 is very clear that Christians are not to marry an unbeliever. True, your morals might overlap in places, but never ultimately as their motive is never to glorify God. One of you loves God, the other supresses Him. Don't even date an unbeliever. It only gives opportunity to go further, cannot be geared to marriage - not to mention how misleading and/or shallow and sinful you'd have to be in your intentions with and to the unbeliever. If you already had a child with that unbeliever, 1 Cor 7:14, that'd cause an exception.
  9. Thanks! Yeah, the busyness still had not reduced for me.

    Hope you've continued to enjoy your time with your sister :)

    Stuck in a terrible situation

    160,000 people die every day. What is their eternal destiny?

    The relevancy and impact of those numbers should not be any greater today than at the time of Noah, when God justly wiped out all but eight people. After death comes judgement, every sinner has always needed to hear the gospel of the Jesus Christ, knowing just as Noah could only be saved in the Ark as a type of Christ, people can only be saved in Christ.

    Who Explores Atheistic Viewpoints as Christians?

    Challange: pretend for a moment that you are not a person created in God's image. Pretend that God is not your creator. For a moment, cease to be Gods creation. Obviously, it cannot be done. Because we are people created by God in His image. I have read all those atheists, and pofesiing to be wise they became fools. Who is wiser than God, who has revealed His existance through His incarnate son, the Bible and His creative power? ---------- Post added at 07:00 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:58 PM ---------- Not all killing is murder, Romans 1 and Joseph Stalin as aswers respectively.

    Finding a Middle Ground With the BF.

    Giving ground to someone in that situation is dangerous. To give a mild example, if a guy was struggling with lust, would you give him a photo of yourself in a bikini as a compromise? No, because that would actually fuel lust, not satify it. We are not to give opportunity to temptation. If you stay with him, you need to make your time together not opportunity to lust, but be time with the other person, so that they increasingly think of you as the girlfriend they care for, rather than a focus on their physical desires. If his lust is just a lust in general meaning not specifically for you, my advice above stands and I'd encourage him to find hobbies. If it is a lust for you, merely making roadblocks won't be as affective, he needs to see you as a sister in Christ whom he might have a future with. Prayer, bible reading, time with older male Christians, and weekly Lord's Day Christian fellowship in general are all critical here.

    Ever been in this kind of situation?

    To put it bluntly, you are not even unique to her. She does not want the same committed relationship you seem to want. You joined in 2004 if I remember correctly, which would likely put you in your mid twenties. I'd be telling her, she isn't relationship material, and saying goodbye. Do you want to spend the rest of your life with someone who in your own words in a constant liar and manipulator? Is be breakin up with her tonight. It is rough advice, but its the truth. You can so better than someone you believe to be an uncommitted liar and manipulator. Single will beat that over a reasonable duration. ---------- Post added at 04:38 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:32 PM ---------- How to find someone not like that? Churches,camps. And have patience. Or else you will likely just repeat this episode.

    Sexual Immorality

    I believe that oliphaunt thinking of Romans 14:23. Sexual immorality is activity outide the bounds of a marriage which is between man and woman. This includes sex, nudity prior to marriage or within someone who is not your sposuse. It includes sexual perversions, incest, bestiality, lying with a man as with a woman to use avoid the word that is reseved for the 16+ section. It also includes those actions that safe unnatual or immoral eg rape Romans 1 even within marriage. All this extends to thought as well as deed. ---------- Post added at 04:16 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:14 PM ---------- I believe that oliphaunt thinking of Romans 14:23.
