Re: Wife doesn’t know me anymore

You mentioned that you want to make her heart smile again - is she unhappy about everything or just some things?  Could she be depressed?  Are the ways she responds part of what has always been her personality or has it changed over time?

Re: Are you pursuing sexual intimacy or sexual activity?

If anyone wants to know these truths, they only need open their bible and read the scripture for themselves.  I highly advise anyone reading this thread to do exactly that.  I will readily admit that there are some truths in the bible that are hard to accept for various reasons.  Even Jesus said "fo...

Re: Are you pursuing sexual intimacy or sexual activity?

<blockquote>I could give you verses and chapters that speak of LOVE</blockquote> Can we call Jesus unloving for expecting us to follow His instructions?  No.  If we fail Him, He IS loving to forgive us when we ask for it and truly repent.  That cannot be confused with the notion that we were ever ju...

Re: Are you pursuing sexual intimacy or sexual activity?

When people aren't healthy you don't change what is good or right for them, they change what isn't good or right to become healthy. I am not perfect, religiously or otherwise, but I know the One who IS and I know what He teaches IS.  I never said it was easy, and I apologize if it came across that w...

Re: Are you pursuing sexual intimacy or sexual activity?

To be honest, I find the entire article irritating.  A comparison between hook up culture and marriage?  <em>Nice...</em> They lost me right there.  I really think a lot of this stuff just unnecessarily complicates things.  It feels like more hoops to put people through than are necessary, and quite...

Re: LGBTQ+

<p>Praying for you Wren that He gives you comfort and strength now.  Praying for your daughter that she encounters the One that she cannot deny.  Understand that she has scales on her eyes, not seeing truth.  Try to deal with her from that standpoint.  You can't help what others think or their judgi...

Re: Domestic Discipline

It is God's own analogy that marriage between a husband and wife is modeled after Jesus and His bride the church.  Eph 5: 21-33 states this directly and proves this.  Is not Jesus the ultimate model of husband then?  I'd say He is.  And yes, He does exactly what Eph 5:21-33 teaches earthly husbands ...

Re: Domestic Discipline

This is one of those things where the word doesn't come out and command it; nor does it come out and call it a sin either.  I am forced to accept based on what scripture says and does not say and because of how Jesus deals with the church in Rev 2:20-23 that God would find physical punishment when d...
