  1. Hi all! I used to come around here more, but it's been a while. I have a question about head coverings. I've done ALOT of reading online about it and I've been praying and reading scripture, but I still have some questions. Anyway, here it goes: 1. I find that in 1 Cor 11:15 that it says a woman’s hair is given to her as a covering, but I’m confused about why it says then that she should cover her hair when praying... as if I could uncover it when I wasn't praying? My hair doesn't come off! Also, the same with the men. It says NOT to cover when praying, as if he could be covered at any
  2. Romans 14 19 Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. 20 For meat destroy not the work of God. All things indeed [are] pure; but [it is] evil for that man who eateth with offence. 21 [it is] good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor [any thing] whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.
  3. Maybe I'm not understanding this then: ZECH. CHAPTER 14 1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
  4. If that's true, then why not just pray that God doesn't destroy the world at all? I'm not trying to argue, I just believe that if it's already laid out in the Bible, then why pray about it? For example, you don't need to pray about whether you need to be baptised, or witness to people, because the Bible already tells us that we should. So if we already know the world's fate, why pray about it?
  5. Yesterday, my pastor mentioned that we should pray that America always stays an ally of Israel. However, the Bible clearly states that all nations will rise up against them in the end. So I guess I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this? Why pray for it if we already know what God says will happen?
  6. I completely understand! T&P for you as you figure this all out!
  7. I know this isn't the same as you, but I was widowed at the ripe old age of 22. I was going to church (IFB) but my husband was mormon and rarely attended any services. I, myself, felt "incomplete" as you mentioned before. However, after making many friendships and getting involved, I started to feel more like I was at home. Then a friend pointed out the verse "He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. (Isaiah 40:11)" and to me, this helped me to realize that the Lord loves e
  8. I would have to agree that it doesn't say anywhere that you have to "join" a church. imo, where it says that souls were "added", I believe that means that they were saved. Also, as far the comment "That's liberal thinking", it cracks me up because there seem to be alot of people on this site who are so worried about being liberal that they are very much legalistic. What happened to grace??
  9. btw, what is your reason for NOT being a member as a divorced person?
  10. Well first of all, I'm not sure what "office" you would want to hold. But at my church we have women sunday school teachers who are divorced. Personally, I don't see an issue with it. Maybe someone else will have a different opinion.
  11. At my church, we have alot of people that are divorced. God may hate divorce, but He still loves the divorced person. IMO, you have the right to come to church and worship just like anyone else.
  12. I'm not saying that a man wearing women's clothing is right (I do not believe it is), but I think that it's unfair to say that all men who do are homosexuals.
  13. Just my take on this, but I agree that wearing pants isn't a big issue for me. I wear WOMEN's pants and my husband wears MEN's pants. Just because you have a skirt on doesn't make you spiritual. My pastor said there have been many times that he's seen a women in a "skirt" and WISHED that she had a pair of pants on!! How sad that people argue over trivial things like this while the world around us is dying and going to hell. No wonder the world looks in on Christianity and can't see Christ. It's hard to see through all the legalism sometimes.
  14. I currently have a red letter Bible, but I've heard some people saying that it takes away from the rest of the Bible and that sometimes people consider those verses "more important" than the surrounding text, even though it's all God's Word. Any thoughts on this?
  15. ^^ I never thought about it that way, but I suppose it is true.
