    Hai there!

    I'll update this later on, but for now here's a quick little overview of me:

    I'm a fairly new Christian. I was saved around my 16th birthday, so it's only been a bit more than a year. I was leading a homosexual lifestyle until about 2 or 3 months ago, and am now being continually delivered from it.

    I've been in a Christian home and community all my life, and have gone to church for most of that time.

    Um... hmm... Oh, my favorite colors are Black, Teal, and Purple. And I love music. I draw, sing, write, and frequently attend youth groups and activities. I'm also "scene".

    So that's me... mostly. And like I said I'll update this later.

  1. Starting pushups from scratch - First, the correct form for a pushup: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVU8lfAKuuI How to build up to full pushups: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiFdfDBY77g Now, after some practice, you should be able to do a few good pushups and build up your number of pushups.
  2. Here are a few useful videos by SGT Michael Volkin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awDjttXoJks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqHg-aaUQzI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjaGS9kGBCU If you can do, say, 30 pushups now, you will be able to do around double the amount by the time you finish these exercises. (just giving an example of the effectiveness.)

      Good luck!

      Was the ASVAB difficult?

    4. Soulaire


      Well, I got a 93 on it. For some people it is really difficult, for others it isn't. It just depends on what questions they ask, and whether you know the answer, really. Half of it is luck, half is knowledge.

  5. I've joined the Army Reserves...

  6. I've asked my pastor for his input: The Bible, so far as I have found, has very little to say on the subject of hermaphrodites. If it does address them, then it is grouping them under the heading of those who were "born eunuchs", even though the word "eunuch" generally carries a quite different connotation. Those are good questions and ones that I have spent a fair amount of time pondering over the years, though I can't say that I have a particularly good answer to them. There is some variety among those who are referred to as hermaphrodites. In many cases, they are basically male or female, with an under-formed appendage that would generally belong to someone of the opposite gender. A pretty common situation from what I understand is an underdeveloped penis at the top of the female genatalia. In some cases, doctors have removed them at birth, though at times the results later in life have been tragic. I have known of both atheists and homosexuals who used the existence of hermaphrodites as a kingpin in their argument. To me, it represents a genetic abnormality, like a sixth finger or an under-developed limb. Generally, I think that they are male or female with some "unique" features. With that said, there are situations where both types of genitals are very pronounced in on individual. I am not an expert in that area. If the Bible is grouping them under "eunuchs" then the indication would be that they were expected to remain celebate. I don't actually know that a strong argument could be made to that effect. I expect that it is possible for them to marry, have children, and raise a family, at least in some circumstances. "Would god punish hermaphrodites for falling in love with other hermaphrodites?" I try not to speak for God on subjects that He doesn't clearly speak for himself about. I think that what God punishes is sexual deviance and depravity, things that we can choose to turn from and seek deliverance from. I'm not certain that hermaphrodites fall under that category. If she is a woman that was born with a portion of the male genatalia, I don't really think it would be sinful for her to marry a man, as long as he understood the uniqueness of her situation. However, I realize that many people would frame the argument differently, choosing to focus on the fact that they have both and are therefore a totally separate case. I don't believe that God is desiring to punish anyone, rather He is calling them to salvation in Christ. After salvation, those are tough decisions that would have to be prayerfully made. I'm not sure if it is common for hermaphrodites to fall in love with other hermaphrodites, or if this is more of a hypothetical question. "Would they be sinning if they fell in love and had sex with a person of a single sex?" The only type of sex that is biblically permissible is within the context of marriage, so the first question would be, are they married to the person they are having sex with? I can only imagine the confusion that hermaphrodites live with. I believe that if they look to Christ for salvation, they will find their identity and with the Spirit's help be able to find the answer to the question of what they should do relationally. "Would it be a sin if YOU, as a person not inter-sexed, fell in love with, and had intercourse with a hermaphrodite?" I think the answer to this would be the same as the answer to the previous question. I think that if this question were to move beyond the hypothetical and I were counseling with an individual who was actually born into that situation, I would pray for God to extend His grace and release His wisdom through me. There are individualized situations that would go into how I would answer some of those questions if I were dealing with one individual. I'm not sure that there is a blanket answer that applies to every situation. I don't believe that they are born destined to be objects of God's wrath. I wish I could give you clearer answers, but I try not to just make it up in areas where I'm not certain. Just be careful not to get trapped in hypotheticals and let it affect your faith. Unless you are actually being called upon to help an individual that is in that circumstance, it is mostly philosophical. It's a subject that I'm always open to people's thoughts on. There are no easy answers with it
  7. http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/2009/12/03/feedback-hermaphroditism Very informative and defined. I suggest that anyone with questions about hermaphroditism should read this. And, as always, the Bible is the ultimate source for answers, so read it for yourself and listen to what God is speaking through the Word to you in order to obtain any answers you seek.

    What book are you reading now?

    The Obisidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory, and I'm on the second book of the sequel trilogy The Enduring Flame. Re-read the 13th book of the Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan once again... still waiting to get my hands on the last book in the series. Reading over bits of the book "Dying For Love: The Plain Truth About Homosexuality" by Perri W. Roberts now and again.

    Being a Bisexual Christian?

    Hmm, let me clarify my statement on all sins being equal: (Romans 6:23) For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord - All sin is equal in God's eyes, and He cannot look upon sin. When we are saved and covered by the blood of the Lamb, we are washed clean. So maybe some sins have worse consequences and some are worse in nature, but all sin is wrong. The only exception is the Unforgivable Sin, blasphemy (Matthew 12:31-32)

    Being a Bisexual Christian?

    I was gay up until mid-July of this year, just after my 17th birthday. Like, literally as long as I can remember I was attracted to the same sex, so my whole life up until those few months ago.
  11. Woah... sorry I never noticed that this was here... so sorry for not replying to anyone :o

    Being a Bisexual Christian?

    God loves us, unconditionally. As humans, we are all sinful and everyone has fallen short of the glory of God. But God cannot tolerate sin- He couldn't even look upon His own Beloved Son when Jesus took upon Himself all the sins of the world as He was crucified. The hard truth is that sexual deviancy is a sin, just as lying and hate and murder are. And all sins are equal. I'm not trying to be harsh, but that's the simple truth according to scripture. I have personal experience with this- I was in the homosexual lifestyle up until a few months ago. Just like any other addiction or stronghold, it's hard to break. Have faith in Him, for He can do anything, even the impossible. If anyone wants more information on this, read this: http://www.christianteenforums.com/index.php?/topic/71583-in-depth-notes-from-the-bible-and-dying-for-love-on-the-process-of-deliverance/ and read the Bible. (On a side note, for those of you who may have the believe that people cannot change or "come out" of the deviant lifestyle, especially homosexuality, look at all the people who go from straight to gay. The reverse can also happen. So please, don't tell me it's not possible, because I know it is.)
  13. I know exactly how you feel. Take strength in Jesus, ok? Know that He loves you, and that He can and will protect you. http://www.christianteenforums.com/index.php?/topic/71962-gods-love/ I dealt with depression and anxiety and feelings of loss and loneliness for a very long time. If you ever need to talk, just message me here or find me on facebook: http://facebook.com/JMichaelBarnett If I don't answer very quickly, I'm sorry. But I will answer your messages as quickly as I can. I'll be praying for you.

    My faith is almost dead.

    Just know that Jesus loves you- unconditionally. And those of us who have little faith or who have lost our faith... we are blessed, because we have something to work toward. And as far as it may help... read Hebrews 11, the whole chapter... It helps you to really know what faith is and how to have faith. Also, going along with this... if you have the time, I'd like you to read these: http://www.christianteenforums.com/index.php?/topic/71583-in-depth-notes-from-the-bible-and-dying-for-love-on-the-process-of-deliverance/ http://www.christianteenforums.com/index.php?/topic/71962-gods-love/ I don't know, but they may help you in some way. I'm praying for you.

    God's Love

    Recently, I've been thinking about God's love for us, and love/compassion in general. I mean, if you look at any other belief or religion or anything... nothing is close to God's love for humanity. (John 3:16) Jesus DIED for us, so that we could have everlasting life. He was crucified upon the cross, because He loved us so much. And through that love and commitment to us, we can begin to understand what love really is. Not only that, but He wants us to show that love and compassion to everyone, so that they can see His love for them through us. (John 13:34-35) So then, we come to the issue of what happens when things aren't going well. I know that we have bad days; I've experienced many of my own. But if you give that trial or tribulation or whatever it is you're dealing with to the Lord, He will help you through it and give you the strength to get past it. So then, when you've experience that love and help from Him, you gain patience and hope. (Romans 5:2-5) And when you have these experiences, do you ever go to someone else, maybe someone who is struggling with what you dealt with, and share your experience with them? In sharing your walk, and really connecting with that person, you're giving them a part of you. This trusting, loving, compassionate action is what brings us together as Christians in many cases. That interaction is literally called by Christ, in the Great Commission. He calls us as to make disciples. (Matthew 28:16-20) Making disciples is important, especially in the Church. Just like the story of Paul and Timothy, whom he discipled from a young age. This lengthened discipleship gave Timothy the tools and knowledge he needed for many situations, and since Paul was the one discipling him, Timothy became great in his faith and began making his own disciples. And that's what happens when we disciple others: They are strengthened and lifted up, so that they can get through their own trials and tribulations. Then, they share that story with another person, discipling them. So the result of discipleship is multiplication. That show of faith, that connection with the person you discipled is passed along, giving many people the tools they need to get through these situations. And that's just one example of how God's love works through us. So there are also, and I've experienced this heavily, earthly needs for love. We become lonely and need connection, and that desire and need can be twisted in many ways by the devil. I'm not saying that earthly love is bad- God made us able to love and wants us to love each other. He instituted marriage and other things for us to be able to fulfill those desires and needs for earthly love and attention. But in many cases, especially if we don't know Jesus or are not strong in our faith, we as people who are looking for Love begin to look in other places. So when that happens, we take our desire for love and attention from God, and begin to desperately cling to earthly affections. So, instead of turning away and going down the fleshly, carnal path of need, we should turn our attentions to God and open ourselves to Him. For only Jesus can truly and completely Love us: anything on this earth is temporary, at least for now, even love. But God is eternal, and He can and will love us unconditionally even when everyone else may not. So when you feel like no one loves you, or when you have that need to be loved or love someone... look to God, because he can fulfill your needs beyond anything that this world can give. Matthew 22:36-40 Romans 5:2-5, 5:8 Galatians 2:20 Ephesians 2:4-5 1 John 3:1, 4:7-11 Zephaniah 3:17 Psalm 86:15 Proverbs 8:17 Colossians 2:6-7 Hebrews 11
