This is nonsense. men are supposed to be able to control themselves
Mary Ann Sieghart wrote: It is the asymmetry that I object to in Muslim thought, the fact that men can wear what they like while women cannot. Are women supposed to be more evolved than men, more in control of their passions? In that case it seems odd that they are not even allowed to enter many mosques, let alone preach in them.
No, Muslim men seem to want to have it both ways. They want complete leadership of their community, with womenâ€™s voices seldom heard, but then they are happy to reduce themselves to the status of animals â€” feral cats in the Muftiâ€™s sermon â€” when it comes to sex, unable to resist the charms of a woman with an uncovered head.
Thankfully in the United States don't have to put up with elizabethan gibberish until high school. It is usually in the last few that would have to that a teenager has to suffer Shakespeare. So, ignorance is bliss when it comes to Elizabethan language.
Sorry for the near repeat! KJV Gospel of John, you might think of putting a grammar aid and a glossary of words that a modern wouldn't be familiar with in the back of it
1 Cor. 14:Â 8 For if the trumpet gave an uncertain sound, who would prepare himself for war?
9Â So also you, unless you uttered by the tongue words easy to understand, how would it be known what is spoken? For you would be speaking into the air.
10Â There are, it may be, so many kinds of sounds in the world, and none of them is without meaning.
11Â If then I donâ€™t know the meaning of the sound, I would be to him who speaks a foreigner, and he who speaks would be a foreigner to me.

Funny, that most children who grow up reading the KJV don't whine and complain about the "archaic language" that you continually drone on and on about.....hmm.

Rape isn't necessarily about power and control, it's about a depraved nature seeking to fulfill it's insatiable appetite for that which is forbidden. The fallen nature of mankind will go to great lengths to satisfy what it craves; women who choose to dress scantily are guilty of causing others to lust in their hearts, and some to actually act out on that lust. There is a reason why the Bible states women should dress modestly, sadly, our culture neglects this command. Forbidden, perverted, sick lust is the culprit that drives the rapist to do the unthinkable. The victim isn't always scantily clad, that is true. But, that isn't the topic here...the topic is how women choose to dress. This pop singer has more discernment than many who name the name of Christ. I've seen women in my former church who dressed in such a provocative way and nothing was said. Drawing attention to self is indeed quite sinful.
Very well said sister; thanks for your excellent comment.

Thanks for the reminder. I like your expression "histrionic slap" fight. Why someone would want to hit a nice easy going old fellow like myself would also be a mystery.
Yes penned, how blessed we are to be able to discern matters of truth for the gospel. If anything ithis allows one to actually question- is what is being preached at the pulpit clearly declaring the gospel? Does what my Sunday school teacher teach , really provide orthodox christian teaching , or is it fluff or worse- heresy. Pray for your pastor and saturate yourself in God's word,
Outstanding Sermon! This is a powerful, insightful sermon about the difficult question about good and bad things happening in our life and in the world throughout. Pastor Joseph's insight and explanation of some of the big questions we have asked get satisfying answers. There are so many topics he covers that it's necessary to listen to this more than once to get the most out of it. Truly a very helpful message.
Great Sermon! Hi Pastor Jeff, I received a nice package in the mail. It was not one but five CD's of you message How to change your marriage. I have already listened to it twice, and have plans for the copies. I really enjoy your sermons. May God continue to Bless You. Thank you very much for the five CD's. Jane Mason
folks, what a blessed opportunity while conservative Catholics feel pushed out of their churches and while Christians find their churches turning emergent and becoming more statist during times of persecution, to bring the outsiders into a saving faith in Christ and to meet together in homes. May the remnant be drawn to Him and may they find one another.
Clear Sermon! This message clearly explains the reason for John the Baptist and his work and how the led to having Jesus Christ being baptized and how He fulfilled the steps going from repentance to justification and righteousness for we as sinners. This is an excellent explanation of this part of the New Testament.
Good comment, ladybug. One would have to be blind or dead to not recognize that MODESTY has disappeared. It is dead and buried! The fashion gurus have made sure that every item of clothing today are designed to provoke thoughts that are other than pure. We gospel women must begin with our hearts, allowing Gods Word to search out the thoughts and intentions that influence our wardrobe. Many who name the Name of Christ are sorely lacking in this area...
Just the facts, (aka sc)I am certain if your statement was accurate that porn would not be a multi- billion business. I really don't think it appropriate for detailed discussion.
Ladybug you are a wise and spiritual lady. The testimony of Scripture is everybody is drawn away due to their OWN lust and enticed and that that lust brings forth sin. A sin, that our Lord stated, proceeds from their own heart.
