There are many who struggle with pornography: their favourite pages get stuck together, low bandwidth, dropping the phone at critical moments, the webcam accidentally shows your face, all the best bits are behind a paywall.
It would mean that either 99.9999% are wrong; or 100% are wrong.
No , just a special investigation. From here on out all presidential candidates will have one. It is a good thing.
If Jesus existed or was based on similar long-haired radical socialist Reform Rabbim "his" aim was to form a Gnostic collective of equals possibly because of his Apocalypticism. Early Christians formed groups that met in homes and explored personal connections to what they thought of as god. That could have been a start to create a kinder gentler western world. But once the Romans took over the movement it warped into a hierarchy of powerful priests wedged between the followers and their beliefs. What started as a way to save the world turned into a method to rule it. IMVHO
You see it as wasteful...because you see God as poor. Its not that way at all. According to His riches in glory in Christ. What are these to you? Dust and homeless shelter? Gods not poor. His children ought not be. Gods no cheapskate. He invented money, but people love it more than the kingdom, more than God. Get that right first it says...right? It seems your focus is on other believers money etc.
Doesn't the hypocrisy bother you just a bit?
Because only this God give this Love.
That is precisely why I distinguished the sinful activity from the mere desire or inclination.
You want to fantasize go ahead. Leave the foundation of our country alone. I'd counter your points with reality but you'd just ignore it again.
I think the only institution in the world that's comparably old is the Greek Orthodox church, and possibly the Ethiopian Tawahedo.
It's ridicule if there is no other point to go with it. By itself it doesn't further the conversation as much as it insults.
No need. That's a cop-out on your part and you know it.
Many liberals are extolling the virtues of prostitution. These same liberals are now telling us it is also ok for a women to be called the C-word.
I am very fortunate that in the early part of the 20th century I had a pair of cousins who dedicated the better part of their lives to my moms side of the family and their extensive genealogy. The result was a two volume edition of limited print one of which is still in my possession, with some 70 thousand names, letters, photos, wills, and other communications going back 1100 years, (not the photots of course) that documents our family back to the Domesday book compiled in 1086 by order of William I. My fathers side is equally well documented, we are members of the Mayflower Society, my direct relative being Miles Standish, and then going back another thousand years to Eric the Red. Our family crest has the name of Standish on it.
I will call them the Children of a Loving Father God. The glorious offspring of 'rightness'. Thanks for asking.
No idea whether you should or should not. That's up to you.
