  1. I'm posting this because I wanna warn others, I'm also doing it because I wouldn't want anyone to experience my situation. My teeth are ruined. Almost all of them. All my fault. I had no clue that it would be like this, for years I had no teeth issue, I ate and drank and didn't think of tomorrow. It never crossed my mind that one day a disaster will occur. And it happened last year. Tooth decay, one after another. What caused this? 15+ years of daily drinking Coca-Cola, rarely anything else, eating chips and peanuts every day for months, having a wrong method of brushing te
  2. Believers/preachers always talking about the word 'religion' as a negative. Yet there's a verse in James where undefiled and pure religion is commendable. I think people want to refer to vain rituals, empty religion. But religion can be good I'm not scared of the word, it relates to beliefs, but many times I see it presented as a wrong thing.
  3. Are there goods things in feminism? I'm torn on this issue, tossed by the wind of various opinions. When feminism proclaims that women can protect themselves and don't need a man, I truly disagree because it's not really possible, at least on a physical level But when feminism says that women shouldn't tolerate abuse or disrespect, I agree. When is feminism acceptable and when it's not?
  4. Oh, sorry. Got caught up in some posts that mentioned pictures of God. I agree with you, that there's nothing wrong with having pictures of any created thing as long as people don't worship it.
  5. Drawing pictures of God is completely disrespectful, to me it shows less reverence when people claim to have this liberty. It's a guaranteed false/inaccurate image of Him, so I'm not sure why people bother with trying to guess his physical appearance. As for graven images, I received angel sculptures as gifts plenty of time, but I didn't feel comfortable in keeping them. They were naked women or babies with wings, this also represents a mocking of celestial creatures since we aren't aware how angels look, only that they are referred to as masculine.
  6. This is an expose of what false beliefs can do to a person. Coming out of Orthodoxy has had a really negative influence on my faith. Orthodoxy is full of weird practices, superstitious beliefs and rituals. As a believer in Christ, I struggle daily in renouncing of previous false thoughts. There are various wrong practices in Orthodoxy starting with making the sign of the cross, Mary adulation, using repetitive mantra, eating the 'wafer' and culminating with detailed stuff like not using garments of a deceased person, opening the door 3 times before closing it, not wearing a
  7. Curious about this.. For my own preference, I prefer a female doctor for any field.
  8. After looking at these passages presented, I've come to this conclusion: Marry a believer * a getting to know or courtship period is necessary, people sometimes are unpredictable or give false information, so making sure a mate is saved is a vital aspect before tying the knot If in a marriage with a non-believer, either: * stay if he's acceptable and treats you nicely * leave if he's abusive or unbearable, however stay separated but don't remarry Now, Jordan stated that a man should accept a cheating spouse, but what man does that? I've seen how men stop loving ch
  9. Having a big family can cure depression, anxiety and social problems. Being an only child has made me very aware of my solitude but also more selfish. Friends are different, sometimes you can't just talk every subject with a friend. When there are very few in a family, one is left without anyone by the time they're old. Having a brother or sister is a blessing, esp one that is of the same faith. Be thankful if you are in great terms with your siblings, there are many of us wishing to be in your position.
  10. Stay safe! I hope your discomfort will disappear. anything health related is unpleasant to deal with Not a surprise that we all look forward to an incorruptible body, free of fatigue and any limitations/sufferings
  11. Bro. Gary, I hope my question is not intrusive, but I wanna ask: how is life with denture? Is it as horrible as people say? Or people make it more tragic than it seems? I'm still young and only have 1/2 removed but 2 of my dentists warned me in scary ways about the future of my teeth
  12. You blessed people, having the opportunity to see those stunning views in real life. I've seen imagery from Canada in youtube clips and I felt already refreshed. It looks absolutely amazing, one of the most beautiful places on earth no doubt. I've been given the chance to visit, but I refused. I think just visiting will make me depressed when my trip will end. I've visited the US a while ago and it has caused much angst and frustration, once you set foot in a civilised world, you see the difference especially if you're coming from an undeveloped country. That's why I kinda dislike travel
  13. Not sure what to say when it comes to more extreme healthy issues, but I've been told to use pills for other problems like stomach pain and more mild stuff I think it wouldn't be a problem if you're unmarried cause there would be nothing there to kill if you take pills but that's my personal perspective.
  14. What methods have you found successful in dealing with non-believers? I'm talking about everyday life, not in evangelism. At work, with colleagues that try to get a rise out of you. Family that try to belittle or mock your beliefs. I'm struggling really hard, I feel like 'the world' is one of the greatest attackers when it comes to a believer's walk with God. It influences everything. Evil people will try and destroy your joy or create negative events in your life. This stuff is something that believers cannot control. I wish God would intervene at times, sometimes I feel like anything random

    Lust

    Don't think it matters which sin is major or minor, but some have more tragic consequences. Since we're on the topic, this sort of stuff has influenced millions of men in abusing women and children sexually whereas gossiping at work might affect 1-2 people or a small collective. There's a difference between someone saying to a friend to start smoking and a celeb saying to fans to start smoking. It's about masses. Viewing that stuff affect millions worldwide in a negative way. Even if men don't act upon their lust, they still retain a disrespect for women. I'm not saying this
