Does Sex or Pregnancy Equal Marriage?

March 10th, 2019 Viewed 216 times

I enjoy reading posts from all different points of view– ones that I agree with and ones I disagree with. Sometimes I don’t have an opinion, only an idea.

The topic I mention above, whether God considers premarital sex equal to two people getting married, is something that I had heard when I was a teen, but I’ve never really come to an conviction. When Tim Challies wrote an article on the topic, I read it, and it opened the concept in my head anew.

Demographic Time Bomb

March 9th, 2019 Viewed 217 times

Contrary those that are talking all the time about overpopulation, the real problem that we’re seeing in the United States is an issue of a demographic crisis.

Americans are not having enough children. They’re making up the quantity, to some degree, with immigrants and hoping all will be well; however, immigrants are not the same as natives. They don’t have the same values, the same heroes, or upbringing.

Why Doesn’t Trump Declassify Already?

March 8th, 2019 Viewed 134 times

Many have wondered why President Trump hasn’t declassified the FISA application for Carter Page and supporting documents, since many believe this may stop the whole Russian Collusion process.

The American Thinker believes the investigation is a cover up. That sounds right– because the stated reason that it isn’t released is the feeling that it would look like obstructing justice– Mueller’s investigation.

Are Women the Lesser Sex?

Scrolling through Twitter today, I bumped into the following:

What struck me is that this tweet helps to crystallize a problem that is had in intersex relations– the ideas of worth and equality.

If You Vote For Trump, You’re the Bad Guy

March 7th, 2019 Viewed 103 times

We’re currently living in a country where there are two extremes that are under the impression that they are the true America, representing true American values and that the other side is anti-American or destroying America.

Anyone who has seen and enjoyed the first Cars movie or has heard the old song regarding the “mother road” will find it interesting that Route 66 is on the national endangered list.

The Problem of the Marriage Checklist

November 14th, 2018 Viewed 343 times

I don’t think that any young man or young woman of marriageable age does not have a checklist. Sure, it may not be one that’s written down on paper or digitally stored in your phone where you evaluate each person that walks by you according to the score, but internally you know what you’re looking for.

How many points of the checklist does this guy have?

It’s said that a woman can tell within minutes, if not quicker, whether or not she’ll be attracted or want to talk to you. I’m sure with a man it’s often faster. We have primary, secondary and even other checklists to get to certain stages.

But are these checklists healthy?

Kavanaugh vs. Ford Would be Easier If There Were No Politics

Sen. Feinstein and Judge Brett Kavanaugh

I’ve been thinking about the whole Kavanaugh debacle for the past few weeks and have been tweeting out different thoughts about it on Twitter. Having a chance now to hear and read a lot of different viewpoints on this topic, I figured I might as well get my perspective in among the mess and see if I could coherently come to any conclusion… and the biggest conclusion I could come to is that it would be a whole lot easier to get to the bottom of this if there were no politics involved– but then no one would care.

Mollie Tibbetts Body Found

found dead after disappearing a short time ago

I can remember hearing that she was missing, and knowing that with how long it was between when she disappeared and that they were still looking that it wasn’t a good sign. Prayers for the family. Fox News has the details.

It reminds me of another family friend that lost a son in his 20s. This is never easy on anyone involved. I was talking to his grandfather just the other day, and heard that the parents still aren’t alright. You never expect your child to precede you in death.

Pray for those around you that have lost loved ones. They need it.

Consistent Biblical Application

Holding Up the Word of Truth

It didn’t take long for the new church to have to wrestle with what to do with the various different practices that those new believers brought to their faith. Not only did different believers bring with them “baggage” from their previous faiths, but they also did not have a single Bible from which to read and understand their faith.
