Re: Can a person be both a Christian and Pro-choice?

One of the core doctrines of the faith (both Christianity and Judaism) is the affirmation of life. You are permitted to violate other aspects of the faith if it is in pursuit of the preservation of life (like working on the Sabbath to save someone's life). The question isn't so much can a person be ...

Project312, Your post is copied from a website. What is your source? There are many reasons there may be textual differences between translations and to simply lay verses side-by-side sans that context seems misleading. And what is the agenda of your source?

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

Thanks everyone for the prayers but that's not why I made the post. To be clear: I made it so someone who might be struggling with the same issue on these forums sees it and gets help. You don't need to pray for me. If anything, pray that the person who needs to read what I wrote does. That's what I...

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

I looked at NoFap a little. It's interesting. I don't know how I feel about the "no orgasm" bit. Even during intercourse. It seems like it's a permanent thing and, unfortunately, I can't seem to find more information without signing up for their program. I'll go to the forums next and see what they ...

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

A proper response would simply derail this thread, and this issue has been addressed in other threads.

So let's keep this thread dedicated to people struggling with their addictions.

I do, however, appreciate your reply.

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

I have a friend who defends porn saying that it can help with intimacy issues for some couples. I dunno. Maybe? I guess. I'm sure there are other avenues to try. If you can't get aroused by your spouse without watching someone else bang then there are deeper issues. But if you're a Christian that si...

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

No one is demonizing sex. I'm not sure how you got that. But demonizing porn? I can get on board with that. I'd never support legislation banning it (adults be adults, yo) but I'm also not a fan of banning hard drugs for the same reason. That said, I'm not gonna act like snorting cocaine is a net be...

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

Yeah. Once an addict always an addict. I know this is gonna sound weird, but the show Elementary really helped me to understand addiction. I love the show outside of that but it's great the show also treats addiction honestly and tells us that of all people even Sherlock Holmes can be an addict and ...

Re: I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

Wow. Thanks for sharing your story. Does your wife know about the affairs? If so, how did she react? I'm assuming your doing a recovery program? How's that going? Praying for your and your family. No, I have not told her and I have no intention of telling her. It would only hurt her and that wouldn...

I Am An Addict (Mature Subject Matter)

It happened when I was young. I was in middle school, I think. My memories of my youth are faded and patchy at best but what I can recall tells me I was somewhere around middle school age. We moved in with my mother's good friend and he became our step-father, if not in the legal sense but for all p...

Re: When, if Ever, is it Okay to Judge Someone's Faith?

"By their fruits you shall know them." What do their fruits look like? Set doctrine aside (unless it's really egregious) and look at what their life's testimony is. Can you see a love for Yeshua in it? If you can, leave them alone. 'John said to Him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in Yo...

Re: 13 surprising Mormon facts

I think there's a lot the Church could learn from the Mormon church. Community, service, charity... LDS puts a lot of the Church to shame in these areas. Glenn Beck really changed my mind about Mormons. I used to believe Mormons were cultists, but the more I listened to him, watched him, saw his hea...

Re: Atheist Murders Three Muslims

Brother, you need to take a step back before you post things, because you are quite unpleasant. And it has very little to do with your religious opinions. Anyway, I don't think this is a productive argument, and CS hit the nail on the head. This really isn't about Christian persecution at all, and i...

Re: Atheist Murders Three Muslims

You may not have noticed but I refrained from saying anything for awhile. But the "Woe is me the poor misunderstood and maligned atheist" finally became too much. I meant what I said: Out of one side of the mouth atheists want to cheer on the declining spirituality of the West (obvious sings of thei...
