\"Secular\" music
Posted : 31 Mar, 2017 08:09 PM

The apostle Paul was well-versed in the pagan beliefs of his day as he witnessed at the Areopagus. This allowed him to make a connection with the lost of his time. I specifically mentioned Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath, because they are two of the more popular bands of my age group. I recognize Biblical truth in songs of both bands. Read the lyrics of Dogs from Pink Floyd\'s Animals album and tell me if you see Biblical truth. Read the lyrics of War Pigs by Black Sabbath for the same purpose. I am convinced that we are supposed to be culturally aware (in the world) while maintaining our Spirit-filled lives (not of the world). We forsake the former if we only immerse ourselves in \"spiritual\" music and neglect to understand the truths being presented in \"secular\" music.

\"Secular\" music

Here are a couple of quotes from one of my favorite apologists, Francis Schaeffer: \"I am afraid that as evangelicals, we think that a work of art only has value if we reduce it to a tract.\" \"Art is a reflection of God\'s creativity, an evidence that we are made in the image of God.\" Anything that is not obviously wicked, i.e. pornography, is evidence of God\'s work in the human soul. We should seek truth in all places, especially within those who bear His image. I find truth in many \"secular\" musical artists including Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath.

the character of Christ, and online dating.

#1 - No #2 - It\'s not, but that\'s a non sequitur. Jesus forgives sins. You aren\'t sinning and contacting these women for forgiveness. #3a - Grace, mercy, and forgiveness are not the issue here. #3b - It is emotionally mature if the woman honestly believes for whatever reason, you and she will not be compatible.

If you pay for the service, you can see the last time someone logged in. I found this very useful and the cost is very inexpensive compared to other sites. I\'ve gotten to several people here.

Are decent normal women still active on this site?

If you are a paying for the service here, one benefit is that you can see the last time someone logged on. Once I did that, I saw that most of my matches and several women I had emailed hadn\'t been on the site in years. It\'s relatively inexpensive and well worth it in my opinion.

The Gospel is good news. It can be presented in any form of media.

Plan A, B, C
Posted : 13 Mar, 2017 12:35 PM

One of my elders was talking in church how he wishes he could have the close intimacy with God all the time that he experiences some of the time. As part of our discussion another elder had mentioned the fact that we do not belong to ourselves. We belong to God now. It occurred to me that perhaps we don\'t experience that constant intimacy with God because we\'re not following His plan for our lives. If you\'re like me, you\'re living Plan B of your life, or maybe even Plan C. We\'re saved, we go to church, we do good works out of love for God, etc, but we still love ourselves too much. We aren\'t willing to completely give ourselves up for Christ by selling everything we own and moving someplace in the world where people need to hear the Gospel and need to be fed and clothed and sheltered, and served, etc, which is actually Plan A, God\'s plan. The point is not to condemn anyone for not doing this, but to live in truth and reality. We should not deceive ourselves by thinking we\'re living out God\'s will for our lives if we\'re not really doing that. It was just a thought I had.

Roll Call

If you\'ve served or are serving in the military of any nation, please share where you served, how long, and your occupation while serving. I served 10 years in the US Air Force. I was stationed in West Berlin and Sembach West Germany and in Tucson, Arizona after going through training in Monterrey, California and San Angelo, Texas. My basic duty assignment was Airborne German Linguist with additional assignments as a Budget Director and Trainer. Next...

Breakups and Revenge
Posted : 13 Mar, 2017 11:37 AM

Describing the best revenge is like describing the best sin. We are never to seek revenge in any fashion. We are told to bless those who curse us and pray for them. My ex would bring another man into my home with my children there while I was at work during the day. She was sleeping with him before we were divorced. I went through many sleepless nights in some very intense spiritual warfare (yes, I wanted to take serious revenge!), but I did not succumb to taking revenge. Instead I agreed to everything she asked for in the divorce settlement, contrary to my lawyer\'s advice. I believe God blessed me for behaving this way, because in the end, she didn\'t seek much money (she could have according to the laws of our state), and she ended up leaving me many of the things she said she wanted. Oh, the man she left me for... turns out he was sending nude pics of himself to his wife (he was still married) while he was living with my ex. She dumped him. Now she\'s living in a camper all alone. Obeying God is always the best path even if it doesn\'t appear to be at the time.

Your soulmate, God\'s way
Posted : 13 Mar, 2017 11:02 AM

I would have to say no. I don\'t believe God has made one woman to meet all my needs. I believe God has made many women each of whom He made me to love and serve. My point is that marriage is not about finding someone to meet your needs. Marriage is about becoming more Christ-like by choosing to love one person unconditionally the rest of your life, accepting that person as they are, forgiving them their sins against you, devoting your life to helping them become more Christ-like, etc. No one will ever be able to meet all my needs. If that is my expectation, I will be disappointed with that person and any person that I place in that position.
