Re: Domestic Abuse

I was going to start a new thread but might as well post this here. Where do you think the stereotype comes from about wives being the moody, bossy ones in relationships? Is it a sexual thing where the man doesn't want to be in the doghouse and miss out on marital activities? Or is it something more...

Re: Shipping

Jon Snow hooking up with his auntie? :lol: Is that Game of Thrones? I haven't watched that one. I try to go for non-incestuous relationships... Non incestuous? Then you wouldn't like GoT. GoT has violence, rape, murder, incest, a foul-mouthed dwarf, gay sex, and cool dragons. What's not to like abo...

Shipping

No, I don't mean sending things by mail - I mean being interested in the relationship between two (usually TV) characters - or real people - and wanting them to get together romantically. I'm a shipper at heart (have been since well before I ever heard the term!) but I've been wondering lately if I ...

Campgrounds maybe.
Ah, OK - that would refer to a more basic facility maybe just for tents here. Also, is this the most boring thread ever? :sleep:

Holiday parks

Just wondering what Americans call them - it's got me wracking my brain! The only thing I can think is trailer park, but that sounds like a grim place where 'white trash' people live permanently. I mean nice parks, with playgrounds, communal kitchen, usually a pool. Do they exist in America? We stay...

Re: Asking God to reveal himself?

Thomas comes to faith! Nils, I encourage you to CONTINUE to seek God - that's the difference between those who truly want to know the answers and those who merely seek to convince themselves that their present unbelief is justified. I also would encourage you to investigate the many incredible fulf...

The subject of disorders came up in a discussion I had recently. My mom passed away in 2014, and I just found out she was a member of D.A.M.
What's that? Google was not much help to me.

Re: How do you know prayer works?

I've brought this back up because I was thinking about Luke 18:1-8, the parable of the persistent widow. Jesus told it to show his disciples 'that they should always pray and not give up.' The widow in the story keeps asking the judge for justice until he essentially gets sick of it and does what sh...

Re: Did we choose God or did God choose us? Your personal testimony...

'Bombarded' with God's love, how could anyone resist? ;) Maybe if someone is hardened against God? How would you say he was bombarding you with love, or drawing you? We sing a lot of songs at church about God's love, and the ultimate proof of that being Christ dying for us, but I find it increasing...

Re: Justices side with Colorado baker on same-sex wedding cake

Yet, to say someone's services should be state enforcable, for ANY reason, to me rings of slavary and that we're all -- all people in that state -- are ultimately state property rather than truly free. This I strongly resist and disagree with. Your house is state property. Your property taxes are "...

Re: Did we choose God or did God choose us? Your personal testimony...

Whatever we might FEEL about God in a given moment, may well be very inaccurate. We're instructed not to let emotions and feelings guide our sense of the truth of things. On the cross, why did Jesus exclaim (Matthew 27:46), "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?"(My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?)? W...
