  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. I agree, however there is a difference between doctrine and conviction. You may have a conviction about something that you believe is wrong, that isn't necessarily stated in scripture. While it's great to have convictions, you can't expect everyone to have the same. My family may decide that we have "family night" every Thursday and expect all members to stay home that night while we spend time together. However, expecting every Christian to do the same is wrong. Should we spend time together as a family? Sure. Could you find verses that tell about the importance of family? Sure. But
  3. Well I think it’s time for me to leave this site. I thought it would be a great place to talk to others about God and the Bible, but I’ve found that much of it is just a bunch of legalists trying to say how everyone who doesn’t think exactly like they do are horrible people. Whether you believe Islam is right or wrong, it’s NOT RIGHT to bash them. Whether you believe public school is right or wrong, it’s NOT RIGHT to judge those who go there. Whether you believe that the sky is orange, it’s NOT RIGHT to be mean to those who don’t. Also, to actually say that someone isn’t saved because t
  4. Who cares anyway? Even if it were somehow true (I don't believe it is) it's not a sin to be married, so it doesn't change the fact that Jesus was the sinless Son of God.
  5. OK, so then please tell me where in these verses, it says it's ok to work in a place where you are "unequally yoked". Also, notice the verses here: De 6:7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. De 11:19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. Where does it say that anyone but you has to teach your child
  6. You are right, and children could go to school without making close associations with the lost. However, in the verses used above "2Co 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" I have to say that being unequally yoked together with unbelievers could be said of anything, including your job, your softball team, your family even. If you are saying that we shouldn't be around unbelievers, then we might as well hold up in a convent and forget about being a light to the world.
  7. Again, do you work in a Christian workplace? If not, you are also sinning, if you use your logic.
  8. Let's pretend that you are a single parent and make minimum wage. You bring home $1000/month. First thing's first, you need to provide a home for your 3 children. In my area, a 2-bedroom apartment would cost you a MINIMUM of $500/month (I hope you like sleeping on the couch, because it's illegal for an adult to share a bedroom with a child over a certain age and different gender children must also have different rooms). Plus, your children need at least 1 complete outfit and food to eat. You need a car to get around, or at least bus fair. How does that leave room for you to pay $590/mont
  9. The cheapest one in my area (per year... and 30 minutes way (think of the gas prices!!!)) costs: 3 students $8,550.00 That is not including application fees, which are $160-$200 PER CHILD per year, depending on grade.
  10. How can you even do time out? Or any discipline? Someone could say it's "emotional pain". I agree, it does seem a little broad and open for interpretation.
  11. Also, who can say if a teacher in a Christian school is even a Christian? On another note, during my time at public school, I knew many teachers who were Christians. Some even ran a STATIC (Students Taking Action Together In Christ) club that we had at school.
  12. Sure they would educate them about God at home. However, this same principle should apply for every Christian, not depending on where you live or what the countries rules are. I agree with what was previously said that we are to be in the world, just not of it. There is no sin for your children to be in the world. Period. Otherwise, you should join a convent.
  13. I still don't see anyone answering the question that was posed before about Christian families in other countries where they don't have a choice in where their children go to school. Is it a sin for them?
  14. A widow friend of mine actually had an anonymous church member pay for her 2 sons to go to Christian school one year. She was so grateful, but never found out who it was. If only more people were so charitable!!
  15. Maybe for your family, but not necessarily for every family. There are many people who don't have TV, cell phones, extra car, etc. and are still having a hard time with money. There are many, many people in today's economy that are struggling just to provide food and warmth. I live just north of Detroit and we have a lot of poor kids who come to our church. Kids who smell because they haven't showered and own 1 change of clothes. There are kids who fill up their plates with food heaping so big that the plate can hardly hold it... why? Because at home they are starving. Are their parents
