    I see you are simply here in an effort to tear down people's faith. Good luck with that. You may not be an atheist, but so far, you are using the standard atheist talking points, and these have all been debunked many times. Without a Supreme Creator, there is no basis for moral values at all, beyond a person concept of morals and values, which would be different for everyone. In a structured and ordered society, basing morality on what each person themselves thought was either acceptable or wrong would not work, for obvious reasons. In your "fitness" system, who dictates what the rules are? And what are they based on?
  2. I have to give some insight here. My wife is an insulin-dependent diabetic. So it is difficult for her to lose weight. She has never moved more than 30 lbs. above what she weighed when we married, and the extra weight does not bother me, but I know it is not good for her, health-wise. I do literally all the cooking. I always have. Over the years we actually have gotten to where we eat much healthier. Less red meat, more vegetables, less snacks, but I can eat virtually anything I want and not gain weight. She wants to lose weight, and honestly, I want her to lose some too, not because her appearance bothers me, but I want her health to be as good as it can be. But I am part of the problem. Because I do not want her to not lose weight, but: I like spoiling her. I know that extra things make her feel spoiled and special, so I have a tendency to do those things to make her feel good, even though they are not really the right things to do, health-wise. Women with poor body images need extra spoiling to re-enforce their self esteem, but men often do not understand what exactly is the best way to foster that self esteem, and she is not going to come right out and tell us. The two of you need to sit down and really have a heart-felt and honest talk about what is going on here. it sounds to me like you two are misunderstanding one another and a solution to the problem may be simpler than you think, once honest communication occurs.
  3. He gives terrible advice, no doubt about that. But you have no way of knowing, without a lot more information, that she is a "victim." Her husband may not want her to lose a lot of weight. That is not an insecurity, if that is the case. That is called a "personal preference." He is allowed to state his wishes when it comes to such matters. What they both need to do is sit down and communicate about the issue and find out what the actual problem is so they can work on solving it together. That is the first thing that needs to happen.
  4. In response to her problem, you ask her if she is thinking about leaving her husband if she loses weight? And you dump all the responsibility on her. She needs to love on him. As if that would solve the problem if he has an insecurity.
  5. They are not rare. It's just that they are afraid to admit it because societal pressure does not allow men to say they prefer larger women. I've preferred them all my life and I don't care if people have a problem with me saying it or not. Problem on their end. I make my view on the subject known no matter who it bothers. I do not find slender women attractive at all.
  6. I have a feeling that this is a whole lot less satanically inspired than it is monetarily inspired. With a healthy dose of virtue signaling thrown in. Celine has a perfume line and her own clothing line. The longer a celebrity is around, the more they try and cash in on their name. Gene Simmons sells his own line of coffins. Rachael Ray just came out with her own pet food. I highly doubt that Celine was personally involved in designing the clothes and today's big, big trend is to plaster a stupid skull on everything. One can get a wedding dress with skulls on it. It's a societal trend just like getting all tatt'd up, or wearing a baseball cap backwards, or having gauged ears, or skinny jeans and a man bun. Someone sees someone else they think is cool, so they have to look just like them. Look at all the car customizing shows. You can't tell the people on them apart. Skulls, chin fuzz, biker shirts. Like they pulled them all out of the same box. I have a feeling that the only thing Celine worships is herself.

    The False Prophet of Rev is Muhammad of islam

    Then why don't you just call him "Paul," since that is what the Bible calls him. Erstwhile sorta-Jewish terms are not endearing, nor are they helpful, in any way. They also give the appearance of someone who is attempting to be one-up on everyone else. You haven't shown us Paul's "witness." In fact, you have not shown us anyone's "witness." What you are saying means that whatever it is you think Paul is saying on this subject would contradict what Revelation plainly says. That the false prophet is a person. Not a religious institution like Islam. If you have something to say, why not just say it instead of a lazy trail of breadcrumbs.

    And all of those are predominately either moral or physical in nature. Spiritually, one will only grow to a certain point, and no further, without Christ. So you can do as much self-exerted self-help as you want, but unless you accept Jesus as your Savior, spiritually, your growth will always be stunted. You will also have absolutely no solid and unchanging moral compass.

    Spiritually. They mean spiritually. Circular logic won't fix your problem. Your argument is "I'm smoking crack, but it's Jesus' fault." No. You're buying the crack, and you're putting it in a pipe and smoking it. Problem on your end.

    What Paul Says

    Deborah was not a Pastor. There was no church at the time to pastor.

    What Paul Says

    That does not work. Everywhere those roles are talked about, they are confined to being male-specific offices. It does not matter that Paul's does not say "God." Women cannot be Pastors.

    Your logic is circular. If you've got issues, it isn't up to someone else to magically fix them for you. Not even Jesus. Ever heard of personal responsibility? We all create 99% of our own problems and then want someone else to fix them for us. Doesn't work that way. What you basically are saying is that you're all messed up inside and it's Jesus' fault. No. It's your fault.

    Those are not witnesses who's voracity can be checked, so I guess we are supposed to just take your word for it. Who is Shaool? Instead of resorting to hatefulness and false charges of "slander," (disagreeing with someone is not slander) why don't you actually explain what you are talking about coherently instead of cryptic explanations that do nothing to clarify your assertions. The false prophet in Revelation is an actual person, not a thing, so your entire premise fails at that point, along with your 3 "witnesses." Revelation 19:19-21 19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. Revelation 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. The false prophet is not a thing, such as a religious entity. It is a person. Also, don't tell people to go away simply because you don't like what they have to say. No one is required to recuse themselves from the thread simply because you do not like what they have to say.

    What Paul Says

    People with no wish to submit to authority fail to recognize authority.
  15. This is what continually both amuses me and encourages me. Because the first mark of a false teacher is their desire to paint anyone pointing out false teaching as having horrible motivations for doing so. Name-calling, accusing someone of judging, attributing repetitive teaching of false doctrine as a "mistake." "Touch not God's anointed!" The first response of a false teacher. One does not have to be omniscient to discern false doctrine. Nor do they have to be a mind reader. All that is required is for one to know their Bible and stick to it, in terms of how the message was both sent and meant by God. Sound doctrine is hated by the world today because it opposes every single thing that the secular world espouses. And you help that secular world by attacking people who strive to protect and defend sound doctrine with false accusations. Amazing.
