Re: Sex before marriage

Point 1 is important to remember. Responsibility and safety are neglected too often. I think your second point is a very good one too. I agree with you on this. But, this doesn't apply to all cases. What about mature relationships, where both people are committed and in it for the long haul? Where ...

Re: Sex before marriage

Here's why I believe God made sex strictly for marriage. 1) Diseases- As you can see nowadays, STD's and other diseases are spread through sex. If everyone would wait for their spouse, we wouldn't have this problem. 2) You don't know if you're going to be with that person in the next year or even da...

Re: The Book of Ezekiel

Thank you. If I ever feel like reading it all, I will. You guys have been helping me too much. Thank you. Somehow, I doubt we've helped you at all. Maybe we've even hindered you. You don't have to read Dr Constable's notes on Ezekiel if you want to. Keep reading Ezekiel...don't give up! FL Sorry th...

Re: Are those with an intellectual belief saved?

There's a difference between knowing about Jesus and knowing who He was, is and is to come. For instance: many people know "about" Jesus, but that doesn't mean they are saved. It's a heart problem, not a mental problem.

I never struggled with masturbation. I always thought it was impure. But God bless you.

Re: My issue with religon

I couldn't agree more with paul; he hits it in the spot. Just like paul said, people judge on the minority compared the majority. For reference: The news shows more bad than the good. It's human nature. We always look at the "bad Christians" to get a look at the ones who are actually doing something...

Re: Socialism

Deep down, I am for Socialism. Everything about it in my mind makes since. I don't like democracy because it grants too many rights for people who do nothing and make more money than the working class. That's just an opinion though.

This past Saturday a 2:00 p.m. one of my fellow students passed away. Traveling at 120mph down a country road, hit a fire truck head on. Police reports tell that the driver died immediately and the passenger was thrown out of the vehicle. The student who died was two weeks from graduating, and was a...

Re: What Am I to do?

In the recent weeks, I have felt more alone than ever. I have an idea why, but I just can't accept it. For the past 5 years I have done the same thing over and over. Get up, go to school, come home then nothing. It's getting old, and I'm starting to hate my life. I don't want to live anymore, it se...

Re: What Am I to do?

My suggestion? Find a hobby, find something you enjoy doing, and do it. Seraph mentioned music, I like it too, in fact I spend at least 2-3 hours a day listening to music. Most of the genres, from Romanticism to the 21st century. Learning history, philosophy, watching/playing sports (surely you lik...

Re: What Am I to do?

Dallas, I'd be curious to ask you what kind of service are you involved in? How are you serving the lord each week in your life? Be specific. Since I'm horrible at having one on one conversations in real life. I tend to witness over Facebook to my friends. I try to be a light of Christ as much as I...

Re: The Book of Ezekiel

Here's a resource you might want to use as you work your way through Ezekiel. It's free and very, very well done. And if credentials mean anything to you at all, the guy is prof at Dallas Theological Seminary--no slouch. http://www.soniclight.com/constable/notes/pdf/ezekiel.pdf Thank you. If I ever...

Re: The Book of Ezekiel

Personally, I don't like the KJV. If I were you - a young man - I would go for The Message paraphrase. here is Eze 4:1-3 from The Message : ''Now, son of man, take a brick and place it before you. Draw a picture of the city of Jerusalem on it. Them make a model of a military siege against the brick...
