Re: My Graduation Speech

It took me 13 hours to write, let me know if you like it :P Meh... I'd write this in half an hour... :ewink: But still, not bad, Western colleague. 8) The problem wasn't me writing it. I had the speech already planned in my head, but it was longer than I could have possibly write in only half a pag...

My Graduation Speech

Sadly, they didn't accept it for me to read :(. Nevertheless, from the people who read it said it was really good. So, I'm going to let you read it :) Please note that this was my rough, so there are some errors. My final got deleted without me knowing it. It's just grammatical errors, nothing too m...

Re: Socialism

I'm bumping this page because I want to discuss something. I was talking to somebody about Socialism and how I prefer it more than Democracy. I told him it's basically the same as a Democracy, just the government owns some business ,free health care, etc... For reference, he is a Christian man, but ...

Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

Um, greetings. Sorry, I've been watching the forums and been rather reluctant to join, but when I did, I was hesitant to speak up. I'm not the most social of people at this time, so I'm a bit shy, oddly enough. Even so, this seems like a nice community with plenty of intellectual debates and learni...

Why is the Catholic OT different that our OT?

One thing that confuses me the most about the Catholic/Protestant difference is the Old Testament. From what I understand, the Bible we use (Protestants), it doesn't have some books and also has books that the Catholic Bible doesn't have. I recall reading how the Bible was made up through the counci...

Re: AnswersinGenesis

I'm not saying just because you believe in an old earth/young earth that you can't go to heaven. That's totally the opposite I believe in....However, I do recall someone saying that they don't like taking the Bible "Literal" because man wrote it. Isn't there some fallacy in that statement? Because l...

Re: AnswersinGenesis

I never seen so much hate towards a person from a group of Christians. Just because he believes in a Young earth really doesn't give anyone a right to judge him. This works the same the other way as well. You are missing the main point of Christianity and you are distracted by a simple means of crea...

Re: Summer!!!

There is a video game league called Major League Gaming (MLG) that has a tournament going on June 8-10 in Anaheim. If you're a lover of games like myself, I highly recommend attending. I believe for a spectator pass it's $20 and to play it's $250-300. The games being played there as of right now are...

Re: Masturbation

What you described happening, happens primarily because of unrelieved sexual tension, you know. I know, I just don't like it. It's not the same. "Hate" is not a natural emotion, at least not in the same sense as what you call "lust", actually normal interest and attraction to the opposite sex. Your...

Re: Masturbation

Dallas, if thinking about something is equivalent to doing, then in my short time on Earth I've committed suicide, murdered, fornicated, etc etc. too many times to count. Something tells me I'm not alone in that. It seems ludicrous to say that every time someone gets emotional or hormonal that they...

Re: Masturbation

Things don't magically get right when one gets married. In fact, they often become more difficult and challenging. A relationship evolves over time as two people become closer to each other. I've found that most people who idealize marriage are single, you know. Of course, I'm just saying you shoul...

Re: Masturbation

How old? 50, 60? How bout before you get married. Are you saying that masturbation is unhealthy? Where did you get that from? No, quite the contrary, it's really good for you from what I hear. Sounds like one very happy and joyful life. Oh trust me, it is :) How long have you been married, Dallas T...

Re: Masturbation

Second, I can't speak for Christianity as a whole, but I (as an outsider) see no reason why masturbating is so evil. The act of masturbation is not a sin. I can't think of anywhere in the bible that suggests that it is. The lust involved, however, is a sin. Let's be honest; can you masturbate with ...

Re: Masturbation

I think you're in your first or second year of puberty, so no need to sweat it just yet. Now as for myself, I have never mastubated to the point of ejaculation. I always felt bad "playing" with myself and stopped in the middle of it. Now let's get this straight, the ACT of masturbation is not a sin....
