There are many different tools in Satan’s toolbox. Modern dating is one of them. Modern dating will take the young person out of the house of God, will replace God in the young person’s life, will cause division among the young person’s friends and youth group and may possibly lead to the complete destruction of the young person’s testimony. Given the incredible dangers of modern dating, it is no wonder the devil uses the tool of modern dating to destroy so many lives. As we will see, the Lord has a definite plan for us to have a spouse. However, as we will also see, God does not intend for the Christian to take part in the modern dating scene.

Women should be wives and mothers first.
God CAN use them outside of that, but that isn't God's perfect will for them. So for a woman to be used of God the most and glorify Him the most, she must be a helpmeet to her husband and a Godly mother to her children.
Right?
It's like God can use a guy who was a drunk and killed all his brain cells and was in a wreck and lost both legs. But God could've used Him more had he responded to the stirring of the Holy Spirit when he was five at a VBS. That was God's perfect will, but He's still merciful in that when we fail to follow the first time He'll still use us.

Adultery, fornication and lust are clearly forbidden. These are the fruit of a dating couple touching.

If touching (holding hands, kissing, or whatever) does not do something for you, why do you do it? When I touch my wife, it does something for me!

Anyone who claims they are not physically impacted by touching in a dating relationship is either:
1.completely foolish when it comes to the way their body responds to touching
2.willingly lying to themselves
3.dead

INTERESTING FACT

1the sun shrinks 2 feet everyday!!!
therefore if the world were more then 5000 years old the earth would have been burned up
BECAUSE THE SUN WOULD have been SO CLOSE!!!

2 some of the planets have layers of ice
so the world cant be more then 5000 years old or the ice would have already melted!!!

and so many other scientific facts!!
that proves tha evolution is not true!!

The orbit of the moon decays a certain amount every day. In other words, every day, the moon gets just a tiny bit closer to the earth. As the moon gets closer to the earth, the high tides get a tiny bit higher. This is a measured fact. Now, Since the creation is only seven to ten thousand years old, this is not a big problem. Average high tides have only changed a few inches.

HOWEVER, if the fairy-tale of 'billions and billions of years ago' were true, the moon would be so close to the earth that it would cause extremely high tides. In fact, tides would be so high that the entire surface of the earth would be flooded by the tides twice a day.

On a lip piercing:

...I know some adults that still see those kinds of piercings as rebellious and countercultural. And that raises the question, if we are ambassadors of Christ, is that an appropriate way to represent Him? Clearly, He should not be represented as a rebel.

SingHisPraises has been trying to disrupt a Gay Pride parade:

Well, first of all we were told we weren't allowed to obstruct or disrupt the march route, so we returned to the area where the sodomites were meeting after their walk. We kept being moved by police, and . A riot van, officers everywhere and a dog unit- kind of ridiculous, isn't it? In the end we were even asked to move to the other side of the road and keep away from the actual area! So instead we took it in turns to walk around passing out tracts to people and sitting on benches with people wearing rainbow flags to tell them about how much God loves them but hates what they're doing.


ObsidianFalcon This witnessing opportunity is simply fabulous. Pity the police had to overstep their bounds.

[old post, I know, but it was too lame to pass up]

Imagine, for example, if a young girl who was a member of the church got pregnant. She's flaunting her sin around town for all to see. This looks very bad on the church. She should be disciplined in order for her to want to make things right with the church, and realize how important the church really is in her life.

Imasaved1 #fundie teens-4-christ.org

A passage came to mind.

You all don't mind a little Bible, do you?

Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (21) Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! (22) Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: (23) Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him! (24) Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.


Now that you've read this passage, compare it to the public schools...


-Jesus is not allowed in schools, but Muhammad is taught: Calling evil good and good evil.
-California says kids cannot use terms like 'mommie' and 'daddy', yet sodomy is an acceptable alternate lifestyle.
-Parents send their kids off to an institutional schools where the use of alcohol is encouraged by many of the teachers.
-In the quest for 'higher knowledge', common sense and the truth of the Bible is discarded on the alter of evolution
Ethics? In our anything for a dollar society, the belief is that there is no absolute 'right and wrong'. These are merely guidelines that can be moved based on the need or circumstance


The majority of the people around us have unwittingly stepped into Isa 5 without even realizing it. Therefore, it MUST be our mission to show them the truth of the Word of God! Without the light of the Word of God, their end will be what is described in verse 24. They will be destroyed.

HOWEVER, this is also a sure sign that the rapture and the return of the Lord is near! In that, we can (and should) rejoice!

yea i heard about this but i dont know if it passed or not. yea this is prety sickning and definitly wrong. and yea like caitlin said im taken history and everything just about was founded on God. we was a prayin Bible reading country at one time and now today it makes me mad that everything about God is wanting to be taken out. but yea this is really sick. and also like caitlin said the two most important things we need is a Holly Ghost revival based upon the Bible and definitly prayers!!!

...we probably wouldn't exist. Think about it. If there was no God...what would be the point of developing the wide variety of emotions that humans have? I mean, our emotions, a lot of times, don't lend well to the survival of our species. People are thinkers that can choose not to have children, have only a few, take a few years break in between having children, etc.

An animal that is able to reproduce will always do so if given the chance - even if reproduction always results in death for the mother, father, or both!

If humans thought like animals, we'd all have a baby every year with the first available person regardless of circumstances because survival of the species is most important.

Of course God commands us to be fruitful and multiply but...well, if our complex emotions actually decrease our productivity as a species...what's the point? To make us closer to God! God gave us the gift of emotion (not that animals don't have emotions, but not like humans of course) to make humans - made in His image - distinctly separate from the other creatures of the Earth. That's proof enough of God for me! PTL!

[QUOTE
NEW YORK — A woman filed a civil rights lawsuit against a popular Greenwich Village neighborhood restaurant Tuesday, claiming a bouncer chased her out of the women's bathroom because she looked too masculine.

Khadijah Farmer, who was at the Caliente Cab Company after New York's gay pride parade last June, said the bouncer ran into the bathroom, pounded on the stall door and demanded that she leave. He told her a customer complained a man was in the women's room.

"I told him I was a woman, and I tried to show him my I.D.," Farmer said at a news conference. "He refused to look at it. I was extremely uncomfortable and quite humiliated."

Caliente Cab Company released a statement denying the discrimination claim and said Farmer's "primary interest" was money.

"There has been no discrimination or violation of anyone's civil rights or human dignity by Caliente Cab Company or anyone employed here," the restaurant's statement said.

Farmer's lawyer, Michael Silverman of the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, says his client is asking for unspecified damages and demanding that the restaurant train its staff not to discriminate on the basis of gender identity.

Farmer said she knows she looks like a man with her closely cropped hair and male clothing. She said people usually apologize after making the mistake, but the bouncer told her, "I want you out of this restroom and out of this restaurant."

Farmer, a counselor at a residential program for people with disabilities, said she was suing under city and state human rights laws to prevent other people from having to endure similar humiliation.]

Hmm, perhaps if ladies looked like ladies and men like men there would not be a problem.

Under this law, they cannot refuse someone. So, girls, suppose there's a perv guy in your class. Up until today, he's claimed (and acted) straight. But today, he announces that he's a sodomite and wants to use the girls locker room and bathrooms. Remember, they cannot refuse him. A few days later, after he's got what he wants, he announces that he is no longer sodomite. According to this law, there would not be anything you could do about it (except homeschool)

Bro. Randy #fundie teens-4-christ.org

Bella, that is one of many different facts that prove the creation cannot be millions of years old.

Here's another one:

The orbit of the moon decays a certain amount every day. In other words, every day, the moon gets just a tiny bit closer to the earth. As the moon gets closer to the earth, the high tides get a tiny bit higher. This is a measured fact. Now, Since the creation is only seven to ten thousand years old, this is not a big problem.

I didn't know where else to put it, so I thought I would put it here. The other night I was watching a moveie about creation vs. evolution. I learned a lot of stuff. Creation says eating the right foods can fight diseases and Evolution says taking medicines will. it might not have been worded exactly like that, but it was close.

[A T4C poster asks whether people in isolated countries who have never heard of Jesus will go to hell when they die.]

The simple answer is this: Everyone who has ever drawn a breath is accountable to God, even if they have never heard the name 'Jesus'.

[Bible verses snipped]

Since you asked the question, I am sure you are now wondering why. To us, something like this may not appear fair to us, but you must remember that everything around you was created by God and declares HIS glory. In fact, not only can we see the hand of God in our surroundings, we know the law of God as it is written on our heart.
[more verses]

Have you ever wondered why a child accepts salvation and the reality of God so easily? From the womb, man knows of God. However, as a man grows, he is often re-programmed to dis-believe the Word of God. Literally, kids are taught to NOT believe in God.

As for the people who are in isolated parts of the world, people who do not have a Bible or hear the name of Jesus, they are still accountable for the light they have received and for the knowledge of God written on their heart.

Ol' Bro Randy #fundie teens-4-christ.org

Personally, I do not like ear-rings on guys at all. That has it roots in homosexuality and rebellion.

As for the rest of the piercings and body modifications (lips, noses, cheeks, and everything else), they are all symbolic of rebellion. I do not see anything wrong with a lady having pierced ears, and small ear rings, but beyond that anything else quickly becomes immodest.

Bro. Randy #fundie teens-4-christ.org

It is amazing how the Bible agrees with itself. Just today, a brother and I were making rounds getting food for the dinner for the bus kids. At the chicken restaurant (we got 300 pieces of chicken for the bus kids and workers), as we were loading the chicken into the church van, a man approached us begging. It was obvious he had not eaten, and judging by his shakes, it was obvious he wanted more wine. He explained how he needed money because he had no job. We gave him a meal in the restaurant and offered to contact the rescue mission. We explained how the mission would give him a warm bed, three meals a day, clean clothes, etc. We also explained to him that he would be expected to work, attend church and attend chapel twice a day. He wanted no part of the work and chapel. In fact, while the brother I was with was getting his meal, I sat down with him and tried to share the Gospel of Christ. He wanted no part of that either. He just kept telling me how didn't have a job and how he needed money. My guess is that he wanted money for wine. Biblically, he has no right to eat until he works for his food. I am sick of people claiming that the church should meet the needs of everyone in the community who begs. It is the obligation of the church to take care of the brethren - those who are in the church who are serving God.

(Nice try, Bro. Randy, but Matthew 25:31-46 disagrees.)

Mrs. Debbie #fundie teens-4-christ.org

(Also fits in RSTDT)
Obviously God made different races for a reason so why would He want one race to be the same as another? Yes, Adam was created in the likeness of God....the rest of us are all in the similtude of Adam. He made each race different and in order for that race to remain the way He created it then each race needs to stay within themselves.

I don't know about your church, but our church has all kinds of people - whites, blacks, hispanics.....American, Indian, Romanian, Polish, African, Guyanese, etc, etc...... We all go to the same church. We all sing praises to God together. We all hear preaching together. If THAT is not racial harmony then what is? When it comes to salvation we ARE all equal in the sight of God. ALL are sinners and must come to Him in repentance and faith.

As for the interracial dating - we have covered that somewhere here on the Board before - and it is wrong biblically. Please do a search to find that topic.

*The staff of a Japanese aquarium was able to take rare pictures of a frilled shark on Sunday, after it was discovered by local residents at Awashima Port in Shizuoka, southwest of Tokyo.

This prehistoric shark is rarely seen alive as its natural habitat lies up to 4,200 feet under the sea.

Experts at the Awashima Marine Park were able to examine the creature, which was a female, and film it swimming around.

Unfortunately, it died a couple of hours after it was moved to its new environment.

The eel-looking shark, with its mouth full of 300 trident-shaped teeth, measured 5.3 feet long and weighed about 16.5 lbs.

Frilled sharks normally inhabit deep sea waters between 400 and 4,200 feet and rarely come to the surface.

However they have been seen near the coast of Japan before, especially during the winter when the water temperature drops and they have to get to warmer areas to feed.

Frilled sharks can grow to a length of nearly 6.5 feet and eat deep-sea squids and other soft-bodied preys.

Most specimen are found in the Japanese waters.*

As we get closer and closer to end times and the resurrection of the church, I expect we will see more and more evidence proving evolution to be a myth.

Mrs. Kelly #fundie teens-4-christ.org

The focus of courting is on marriage, not on just finding someone to have a good time with, and breaking up (which is practice for divorce) at the drop of a hat.

The parents are completely involved and actively counseling the couple.

The couple is chaperoned and never completely alone to maintain a high standard of purity.
This doesn't mean that they don't have any privacy, but that there is someone close by to help them keep a good testimony,
and "abstain from all appearance of evil".

ImaSaved1 (Bro Randy) #fundie teens-4-christ.org

Emmanuel, I hate to take the draconian act of deleting an entire post. However, your last post was all quotes from a woman who is a self-proclaimed 'prophetess' and from a group of people who have several doctrines and practices which do not agree with the Word of God (claiming to be a prophetess, and a woman preaching to men, for example).

More importantly than all the other reasons as to why I don't want a girlfriend is because I am waiting on the Lord to bring me a wife. Courtng is the safest way to go, so you won't do things you shouldn't do if you are not married. I know I am not the best person to give advice, but I will be praying for you.

By the way: true purity goes much further than just the medical definition of a virgin. Purity is a physical condition which includes that definition, but it is also a state or condition of the heart which includes much more than not touching someone romantically. It includes not allowing yourself to lust after someone, give your heart away to someone who is not going to be your husband or wife, not touching people in a romantic way, etc.

ImaSaved1 #fundie teens-4-christ.org

There are three reasons (at least) that shorts on ladies are immodest:

1. Isa 47:2-3 Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers. (3) Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man. According to this passage, revealing the thigh (the part of your leg above your knee) is revealing your nakedness. That is immodest in it's purest sense.
2. Many young ladies like to wear men's walking shorts. Though these are often long enough to cover the thigh, they still are "men's pants", an abomination.
3. Men's walking shorts reveal the form of the lady's body. Again, this is immodest.

Brother Randy #fundie teens-4-christ.org

Well, first, let's clarify what the admin's definition of a 'testimony' or 'testify' is! When I speak of a lady testifying, I am speaking of her praising the Lord for something the Lord has done for her in her life. i.e., this is what the Lord did for me.

As for why it is wrong for a woman to 'preach' in church, we need only look to the qualifications for a bishop (pastor):
1 Tim 3:2-7 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; (3) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; (4) One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (5) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) (6) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. (7) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
One of the qualifications is 'husband of one wife'. This qualification eliminates several groups of people:
Unmarried the pastor must be a husband! This means that unmarried men are not qualified!
Remarried the pastor must be the husband of one wife. This means he cannot be divorced and remarried.
Women No matter how hard she may try, a woman cannot be a woman.


As for the other positions some women have taken in churches, the passages from Paul are on point. The Bible is not extreme, it is our guide.

After the flood the atmosphere of the earth was dramatically changed . Before the Flood the earth's atmosphere had a "greenhouse" effect because of the canopy of water surrounding it. Three major things happened after the Flood: the canopy of water was gone, harmful rays of the sun entered the atmosphere, & man and animals began eating meat. Earth experienced many atmosphere and climate changes, and because of that many animal species - including dinosaurs - died and became extinct.

ImaSaved1 #fundie teens-4-christ.org

The universal flood and the Ark of Noah cause problems for you because you deny the Word of God and choose not to exercise faith in God.

Why does 2+2=4? Who knows. It just does. How did God assemble all the animals and feed them? Well, God knows, but then again, He's God. There are a number of possible explanations, but listing them would be pure speculation. The simple fact is that you have chosen to not believe in the written account of history.

(on speaking in church)

I have mixed feelings about this. I'm all for a woman singing in church (I do). I'm not even against a woman saying amen in church. But, when it gets to the point that she is over-bearing her husband, and not being of a meek and quiet spirit, then I think it can get excessive. Maybe I have just had a bad expierence with this topic.
My church is very exciting with lots of amens and shouting. But, there was a lady in our church that was literally shouting and "out-shouting" the men while her husband was sitting on the end of the pew looking bored. Obviously she is the spiritual leader in the home. If not, it sure appeared that way.

Marksman #fundie teens-4-christ.org

[In response to the question: What about the fish? I would think that they stayed in water, and weren't taken onto the ark, but sea fish need saltwater, freshwater fish need freshwater, and when the flood came, all the water would have mixed, and become brakish. Very few fish can survive this.]

This can probably be described in many ways, but one way it would work is that salt water is more dense then fresh water, so when they are mixed the salt water sinks to the bottom, and the fresh water stays on top. So when the flood happened, the bottom half of the earth was salt water, and the top half was fresh water. I am sure many fish died, but enough of them survived by staying in their type of water(top or bottom) to reproduce after the flood.

Our good mate Brother bloody Randy #fundie teens-4-christ.org

Yes, it does matter. Simply, if you cannot muster the faith to believe Genesis 1:1, you cannot have the faith to believe John 3:16 or Rom 10:13. The Bible is either completely true or completely false.

The myth of evolution is merely another lie concieved by the father of lies to turn people away from the Bible and decieve them.

This is why we absolutley must contend for the entire Word of God - we cannot move on any little part. When we do move, we're allowing the devil to win.

lol ive never understood how people can believe in evolution in the Big bang sense, because theres a massive hole in their theory, for their theory there needs to be something there to start off with and nobody can ever explain where that someting came from. its quite fun making my science teachers stutter when i point that out.

but the point is, even if the big bang theory was true (which it isnt) God would have had to start it off. some people can be so ignorant to what is the obvios, eg, its obvious if you look around that God exists, but many people arein total denial

IFBaptistgirl #fundie teens-4-christ.org

Preaching? ABSOLUTLY...........................NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! (gotcha didn't I?
God has never called a woman to do that, and HE NEVER WILL! Like I said above, the Holy Spirit won't lead anyone to do something that isn't scriptural. The Bible forbids a woman to preach and gives that distinct call to a man who meets the qualifications. God will not contradict His Word, period.

Leading singing and such? No...because the Bible says she isn't to have the authority over the man. There are usually men in a choir. If she is "Leading" the singing, that means she's leading the men...which means she's in authority, which is unscriptural.

teaching Sunday school: Only if it is young children (boys and girls), or teenage/adult ladies. She definatly has no bussiness teaching men. That goes back to the "no teaching or usurping authority over the man" verse. And I'm not keen on her teaching teenage boys either. They are getting close to adulthood, and personally I think they need a strong, godly male figure to look to. Especially in this day of broken homes where the boy may not have a strong father figure to begin with.

Public prayer in church: I'm not keen on this one either, unless it is only before ladies or children. She doesn't need to "lead" in prayer in front of men in public. Again, I believe that goes back to the authority thing. Now if she's at home and she and her husband are praying together, I think that would be alright so long as they are both praying together.

Hm...can't think of anything else for the moment....

Before I was saved and I'm ashamed to say, for a time shortly after I was saved, I could have sung you any country song on the radio word for word. I've always been attracted to musical things...There came a time in my life after being saved that I was convicted and realized country music DID NOT glorify God. Your beliefs and values come from the things you associate with. Music especilly can have a profound effect on a person. The devil was a musically inclined angel the Bible tells us. Any coincidence that he's the "prince and power of the air?" What goes over the air? RADIO AND TV!!! I'm not saying the radio is bad...I go to a church that owns and opperates a wonderful radio station that I keep playing all day...I'm all for godly music. But I am NOT for music that dishonors the Lord...and songs about cheating wives and drinking DO NOT glorify the Lord. This is why I trashed the country music...and then set the trash can on fire...and no I'm not joking...
