  1. So you have to show your membership card and secret decoder ring to get in the door?
  2. nice try, not buying it. I specifically requested biblical support for your opinions on clothing and how a woman's "immodest dress" directly causes a man (any man) to sin. I requested citations, proper exegesis and looking at the cultural and historical context. You went off on a tangent. That doesn't work with me. Try it again. Modest how? Outwardly, or with a gentle spirit? I can dress in the most "modest" way imaginable and yet be immodest by calling attention to how modest I am. Also, in that quote, where's the idea that men would "stumble"? Hmm....there's th
  3. citations please. From the New Testament, with proper cultural and historical exegesis please.
  4. Yes! It seems that men are given a pass...they just can't help it. I work in a male-dominated industry. Yes, I dress fairly modestly most of the time, yet...it is not my responsibility to keep some man from losing self-control. I see many men wearing things that I might consider inappropriate...like the guys who walk home from the pool in wet swim suits that leave nothing to the imagination. I may notice it, but it doesn't cause me to "lust" after them. There's only ONE man that I go completely ga-ga over...just one. I've been married to him for a long time. This whole thing over po
  5. "Unscriptural"...I quoted Galatians 5:22-23. "Ungodly"...saying that a Christian should exhibit the fruit of the Spirit as found in Galatians 5:22-23 "Lacking in compassion"...saying a Christian should endeavor to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit as found in Galatians 5:22-23. What I see is a bunch of men refusing to take responsibility for their own thoughts and actions...kind of like when Adam blamed Eve.
  6. Ummm....nope. Men need to learn SELF-CONTROL. Seriously. My husband can walk down the Strip and not have a single untoward reaction to any of the lovely ladies hanging out. Men can control their own thoughts. Now, do you think women aren't affected visually? I mean, I'm old, not dead. Yet, I can look at a nice-looking man and not think about anything other than..."gee, nice looking guy". I'm sick and tired of men blaming women for their lack of self control. I would point you to Galatians 5:22-23 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodnes
  7. What disturbs me greatly here is the idea of "my church" or "your church". The church does not belong to men...It belongs to Christ. A person can wear the "right" clothes, say the "right" things and still have a heart blacker than the night. Yet, that person would be welcomed and accepted in IFB-world over someone who isn't wearing the "right" clothes or saying the "right" things, yet DOES the things that Jesus tells us to do "love one another as I have loved you". We, as people, cannot judge hearts. So what if someone shows up in a bikini or speedos? Shouldn't you just thank God t
  8. I live in Las Vegas...there are times when you're happy with the bare legal minimum (which ain't much in Sin City). In terms of "allowing"...it ain't your church, it ain't my church, it's God's church. Now...quit it.
  9. Exactly. I know if I had been spoken to about my clothing the first time I set foot in a church, I'd have never returned. In my pre-IFB days, my primary wardrobe was jeans, concert t-shirts or tank tops and tennis shoes. If I had gone into a church and someone decided to pick on my wardrobe rather than being happy I was at least there, well...my mouth would have gotten the best of me and I'd have never returned. It would have also reinforced the idea I had that Christianity was some exclusive club that only took those who walked, talked, lived a certain way. Fortunately, we were blessed to fin
  10. If a lost person shows up at church, they should be shown the love of Christ, not slammed for their clothing...they're lost, they don't know any better. Perhaps instead of singling out that person or immediately talking trash about their wardrobe, maybe have a member of the congregation reach out to them in love and disciple them. No, I no longer wear pants most of the time, I wear dresses and skirts. BUT...if I had walked into a church wearing jeans and a t-shirt and was immediately run off, whatever spark of faith I had would have been quenched and I would have had my opinion of Christ
  11. Look Jordan, I don't have to justify anything to you. You can continue on your merry way and do your thing. I'm not under authority to you and have no reason to answer your interrogations. Have a great day
  12. and you have the audacity to speak for God? It's your word. spend some time researching the historical and cultural context of what was written. It's a whole lot deeper than your interpretation. Spend some time doing it. Consult reference works. This is the sort of thing that will take you months to research. Trust me, I've done it. I think I spent upwards of 100 hours researching it. I wrote a paper on it in college (Liberty University class of 2013, Bachelor's of Biblical Studies).
  13. @Jordan Kurecki how about you just don't worry about it. Your interpretations are YOUR interpretations. Thank you I'll take the word of my pastor over yours any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Have a great weekend.
  14. Now...for a few questions...the marriage covenant is defined in Ephesians 5, correct? There's quite a few verses that define the husband's duty to the wife, right? Jesus also said "except for fornication", right? So...husband is abusive...violates the marriage covenant in Ephesians 5, correct? Especially the part about loving his wife as he loves his own body, right? Then there's the fornication aspect...someone who watched hard core porn while his wife and children were 800 miles away taking care of her parents. Last, but not least, he was NOT a Christian and it is written t
