if your comment contained material from the offending posts, they will take it out also, not necessarily a censoring of the proper response but an elimination of the one they are removing. Not sure if that makes sense the way I put it

Why John U.K., I think you could do it in less than an hour.
The Roman Road Romans 3:10 As it is written, "There is none righteous, not even one." Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 10:9 That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. Romans 10:13 For "Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved."---NASB
You and others who have the gift of evangelism should have the opportunity to talk to this woman. She needs to be put on The Roman Road.

I agree 1517. Now if he had just arranged to go and see her for an hour, and graciously spelled out the Bible's position on sin......
Praise the Lord for "exposing" these guys. Let's continue to pray that the Lord would protect the vulnerable and thwart the plans of those who would do harm against them. There should be more stringent penalties against sex crimes, providing that the violator is indeed guilty. And, just a side note for all who think that porn and lingerie sites are victimless. Many of the women (the real ones (not the computer-generated ones) on these sites are forced into this garbage. The next time that you find yourself checking any of these sites out, remember that you may be contributing or gratifying yourself at the expense of someone else.
MG wrote: Hi John UK. Nearly time for my bedtime now. Yes, we treat Friday as a preparation time, then depending when sunset is, might have a study before bed with some of our older children. Next day, we either have people come to our house or go to someone else's, usually having a meal together. Has GOD given us peace in this? I think so. I don't think we could go away from the Sabbath now without a guilty conscience. We truly believe that we've been led to this point and to go back on it would be akin to rebellion (for us). It's still difficult, though, knowing we're different to many people that we respect.
Hello MG, and thanks for that testimony. It sounds as though it has become an important part of your life, and that can only be a good thing. Maybe one day I'll take the plunge as well, although as you say, it is not so easy; however, if I become convinced it is right, I will not hesitate. Pleasing God is far, far more important than pleasing friends.

During prayer, He would prophesy through me, and pretty much everything I did was the result of God telling me to. Others would always approach me offering up what God told them to tell me, even women saying God told them we were suppose to be together. Everyone had a direct pipeline, and when anyone said "God said to...", everyone jumped into action. Church speakers loved to use the phrase to compel people to give or pledge what they didn't have, and to take advantage in other ways, not unlike the faith healers, etc.who use God to deceive. Anyway, my eyes were opened, but not without a fight, and it's no easy thing to open the eyes of any Charismatic because they are all addicted to the emotion and experience of it all.
Quite so, Christopher. I think it is the addiction that keeps so many of them from getting out. From one "worship" service to the next, it's like they go through withdrawals from happy pills. Poor souls. __________
Mike, the new birth is the all important thing, no matter when it comes.
