  1. Openly Curious added a post in a topic what is the biblically correct response to a specific crime by spouse   

    I think reporting the site would be first on the list to the authorities.  If a spouse is watching child porn I would think this person is perverted in their sexual desires and I would demand that counseling and seeking out help for this unnatural sexual desire be in order.  If the spouse would not go along with these immediate demands to seek out help then seperation would be the appropriate action until they do.   They are committing a crime and to seperate yourself from that crime is just a wise choice to keep yourself from being caught up in it by covering it up.  Somethings between spouses can be overlooked and can be worked out without seperating from one another but child porn is a crime as sexual assault on minor's is occuring at the time of the filming a child's life is being destroyed and to be sexually gratified at the destruction of a child is something one shouldn't have to put up with or keep it a secret.   I do not believe it is grounds for a divorce but seperation would be in order if help is not sought out immediately reconciliation can't be possible.

  2. Openly Curious added a post in a topic Why are so many Christians mean? not all, but some.   

     
    This is an old thread Butero that has been resurrected in case you didn't notice.  I think it is a pretty safe to say you want be getting a reply back from this person.   But I can feel the pain within this person as I know that some professing Christians are indeed mean and they can literally drive another to the point of giving up permanently.   Constantly being judged, criticized, treated as an outcast or less of a child of God because of differing views etc,. has an impact on a person's heart especially when you are at church to find God but find the devil instead.  Some among us are and can be so frail to the breaking point we need to be careful with them and how we bend others.  Careful what we say and send others.  Careful how we end them we need to be careful with them.

    That is what I would have done myself kwik I would have knocked on the door again and would have asked if it would be alright if I came in out of the rain till my daughter was ready to go home.  I probably would have felt slighted but then the person may have not noticed how the rain was coming down just wasn't tuned in to it.

    My Saviour Jesus Christ was not a "beggar" but He was the only "Begotten Son of God".  I stagger to think of your thoughts in light of Jesus the King of kings and Lord of lords as being a beggar.  To say such a thing shows your ignorance of the person of Jesus Christ as scripture never depicts Jesus as a beggar.  You speak gobly goop.

  7. Openly Curious added a post in a topic What's your favorite Bible translation, and why?   


    Must we take scripture out of context just to make a point. Why can't a point be made forthrightly without perverting the scriptures in order to do so. It is a shame to misuse scripture in such a manner. Even when someone is trying to make a point on what they consider their views for the Lord in the topic of the thread. It turns me off literally if they misuse and misquote scriptures to make their point. It is just plain wrong. It's better to say nothing than to twist and pervert scripture.

    Then I would suggest you tear those two books out of your bible and go upon your own wits. If you find other scriptures you reject just go ahead and tear them pages out as well. If you think you know better I'll leave you to it. But I will continue to accept the wisdom and knowledge that both James and Jude gives us in scripture.

    .
    You may have a lot of so called basis but they are not scriptural. Martin Luther is dead wrong. If nepotism doesn't trump apostleship then neither does your teaching trump what James taught in scripture your favortism means absolutely nothing. Can you confirm your leadership by signs and wonders if not then I dismiss anything you have to say just as you do James who was a servant of Jesus Christ and was a leader in Jerusalem as well as the brother of Jesus. Paul was an apostle to the Gentiles and Peter was an apostle to the Jews and Peter and James worked together in ministering to the believing Jews.

    The person resurrecting these dinosaur threads is only up to mischief and is misusing their place here at worthy boards.

    I plan on sitting outside tonight to see it and get a picture of it too if I can. To me it is just something to see and has no other meaning attached to it. Just get a bonus if your out sitting and listening to the peaceful sounds of the night.
