Q: “After reading the “shacking up” article I still have a question. I’m currently divorced, I’m dating somebody who is working on the legal aspects of a divorce but has been emotionally divorced for a few years now (i.e. they two have not lived together or had any marriage like contact in years). Avoiding the mess & stress of explaining her dilemma I’ll jump straight to the point. What are the rules of two divorced people starting a relationship (physical and emotional) and possible marriage. Where can more info on this subject be found?” A: First let me start by saying thanks for reading and taking the time to ask. The subject of adultery is a big deal now days because our societies moral standards have taken a nose dive. Lets look at your situation from
Believe it or not this subject comes up a lot, especially in Bible study at my church. I also get tons of emails about sexual relationships. People everywhere want to know what the Bible says about sex. I’ve previously covered several sexual topics according to the Bible: Fornication vs. Sex Before Marriage Adultery and Divorce According To The Bible The Truth About Shacking Up My views on relationships are not always popular, but I do use the Bible to present them. I’ve gotten plenty of emails from people giving me all kinds of reasons why I’m wrong, but for every 10 emails I get, only 1 or 2 actually contain Bible verses in support of what they believe. I find that most of the people I get messages from base their arguments on tradition and not the Bible. So
Disclaimer: This is just the first post in a long series of posts on the subject. This is by no means a definitive statement as I’m always doing research and simply share my thoughts as I do so. This series of posts should be read as if I am simply BRAINSTORMING through written word. This post is where I started my research. If you hang around church long enough, you’ll hear older folks talk about “shacking up” but what does it really mean? From what I’ve gathered through debating this issue with older people (preachers included), is that it refers to a man and woman living together. I would also throw in the assumption that people of the opposite sex who live together must be having sex, and that’s considered “shacking up.” While it may not even be true that sex is
The subject of denominations is somewhat controversial among Christians. Those that do adhere to a specific denomination believe that there is absolutely nothing wrong with them. Those that do not adhere to a denomination believe they are divisive. Is it more about religion or relationship? What is the truth? What if I told you that denominations were expressly forbidden by the Bible? What if I told you that belonging to a denomination placed you in a position against the will of God? What if I told you that Paul put a stop to denominations when they first started to surface during his ministry? These are just a few of the questions that we are going to look at in this study on denominations. Let’s start by defining what a denomination is: Definitions #1: A reli
What were the lion like men of Moab, and why did the Bible differentiate them from actual lions? There are many verses in the Bible that should make us take a step back and wonder what exactly was going on in those times. Some of the stories are so outrageous that people just refuse to accept them at face value. Yet when we look back at history within the context of our time, we can understand some of the strange events in the Bible to be literal. “And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man, of Kabzeel, who had done many acts, he slew two lionlike men of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow:” – 2 Samuel 23:20 What exactly were the Hebrews dealing with in the time of David? First we have Goliath and now two “l
"As the days of noah were, so shall the coming of the son of man be." Fallen angels, the abduction of human women, nephilim hybrids, the origin of demons, and the worldwide destruction of mankind are just the beginning of this modern examination of ancient history. This is not the Sunday School bedtime story that you heard when you were a kid. Noah’s flood wasn’t just a random Bible event, but it is the blueprint that we can use to look at our time, and understand what is going on in these last days. Join me as I take you on a journey through history and we learn what really happened during the days of Noah. Urgent Information For Our Time Why did God really destroy the earth in Noah’s day? What was the true identity of the sons of God? How is the modern
I finally decided to attack the Sethite Theory head on in this almost two hour video/audio presentation. I did it mostly on the fly, mistakes, and all. However, I provide very valid points that show how un-Biblical the Sethite/Lines of Seth teaching is. Here is the video: Some of the points that I want to make for people that are caught up in the Sethite lie is that YOU NEED TO ASK FOR SCRIPTURE!!! What scriptures should you be asking for? Where IN THE BIBLE is Seth’s line referred to as “sons of God”? Where IN THE BIBLE is Cain’s line referred to as “daughters of men”? Where IN THE BIBLE does it say Seth’s entire line was righteous? Where IN THE BIBLE does it say Cain’s entire line was evil? Why did God destroy the daughters of God and
