Well Macguyver and the A-team where all single, as far as I can remember, so there may be some relevance... I was challenged once to give a gospel talk based on a randomly selected item someone in my training group had found about the house. I was given a broken watering can. Perhaps someone would l...

That night he lay with his second wife on a bear sk...

My father told me "if you ever have an argument with your wife, and it turns out you where right, apologize at once!". :?

Ooh! I know something about this topic. I've been married for 16 years now. I was single and on my own for about three years before I met my missus. Being married is great, but it takes a lot of hard work and you learn a bit about "laying down your life", since you can't simply do the things you wan...

I go along with silvertusk. Genesis talks about animals having souls somewhere, and the NT makes a distinction between soul and spirit. I think the soul is all about emotions and will, while the spirit is that bit which becomes alive through the action of the Holy Spirit. I'll look up those referenc...

what is grace

It might sound a bit cheesy, but not long after I became a Christian, someone wrote in the front of my bible:
G God's
R riches
A at
C Christ's
E expense.

Which I have always found useful as a starting point for meditation.

doubts about christianity

I have often wondered what on earth I've been thinking of for the last twenty years...when it's difficult and I start counting the cost, I really do struggle. On the other hand, when things really are hard, like six years ago when my wife and I had a stillborn child, God drew close in such a real, i...

mmr vaccination

Purple. I agree this is a difficult one. I have five kids, and all have been vaccinated with the triple. I didn't know about the possibility that vaccine might be manufactured using material from aborted foetuses, and I'm not certain that it would have changed my choice. As Puritanlad says, it would...

I heard this from an aboriginal australian

It's a pity Adam and Eve weren't aboriginals. When Eve asked "Do you want some of this apple?" Adam would have said, "No thanks, I'll eat the snake". :lol:

salvation

Sorry if the above seemed a bit flippant. I realize there are wider issues within this, but I wonder: Is the church being built by such discussions? has anyone been built up by it all? If we could do a poll of those who have followed this thread, whether they posted a reply or not, would they come a...

salvation

Wow. I didn't know it was all so complicated. John 3:16 for God so loved-Oh come on everyone, you know the words! Say it with me! "For god so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" no provisos, no ifs buts or maybes, no...

I bet it wouldn't be MC Hammer's U Can't Touch This.
That's how old I am. :lol:

I think He'd quite like Bob Dylan. But then, I think everyone should.

God and Gender

Zoegirl-No, I am saying that man or woman on their own do not entirely, or perhaps I should say satisfactorily, fulfill God's intent in creating mankind. I am not saying either that God couldn't 'pull it of' by creating just one gender so had to try to cobble something together. God is in himself a ...
