Yes, men can be pretty creepy, and the crimes of women pale in comparison, but times have changed as girls and women wax worse and worse. I haven't seen children that young acting that way, but I believe you, of course, and I guess the situation runs deeper than I thought, crossing the age barriers thanks to the rise of the sodomites, s*x ed being taught to kindergarteners, parents not caring, TV, and simply emulating what they see all around them.
I agree there are plenty of Jezebels, Potiphers wife and Delilah's on the prowl and seeking who they can devour.
Jim , What arrogance for a minister to place his name on God's Holy Word. You read them if you find you cannot understand your NASB version. No one here is interested. ------ Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils; for wherein is he to be accounted of? Isaiah 2:22 AVKJV
B. McCausland wrote: Thank you for the information and links The Geneva Bible should commend much respect for its origins and good efforts, its stand, and the gap it filled out in history. In spite of the good it represents, divine sovereignty, through the intervention of King James I, decreed that it should not remain the English Bible for the next 400 years. Not intending to justify King James' agenda and bigotry against the Puritans, one is tempted to wonder why. Not despising the comments and aids the Geneva Bible provided, one might suspect that slanted notations in particular might had become through time an 'idol-worship' interfering with the actual words of God, as the bronze serpent did for the Israelites, which with all its importance, had to be destroyed to curve a pernicious and insolent tendency establishing. In my humble opinion, all Bibles should include only God's Words for the reader to search out with the help of the Spirit given aids. Else, have separate commentaries.

So, the argument against the KJV because it is a little harder to understand is a bit weak. However, that raises the more important argument - why should we need an old dictionary to understand the Bible? In fact, that's one of the reasons the KJV translators themselves produced the KJV - they saw the need for scripture in their common use of language, not a centuries old dialect." The KJV's Archaic Language Pros and Cons Too bad, SteveR that all the verses aren't as clear as that.
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.
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...

I've seen comments from men on various web sites that speak of the difficulty they have focusing on Christ when women attend church in very revealing clothes. Since I'm female, I can't totally understand that struggle, but I certainly wouldn't want to be the cause of it. From a Biblical perspective, nakedness has a much broader definition than it does in this wicked culture.
John Bunyon had a few mincing words to say to those who attired themselves as an harlot: "the attire of an harlot is to frequently in our day the attire of professors; a vile thing, and argueth much wantonness and vileness of affections. If those that give away to a wanton eye, wanton words, and immodest apparel ,be not whores, in their hearts, I know not what to say". GOD knoweth their hearts without their outsides; and we knoweth their hearts by their outsides...
Frank wrote: There is little difference between the dominionists of today and the RCC of yesteryear and Islam today. Both groups want to set up a political agenda and then would force "or" compel others to follow their lead. I strongly believe that as an individual Christian I should disobey immoral laws when I can and I would recommend others do the same, but not using immoral political/social methods. My agenda is to serve Christ and not set up a worldly kingdom that is worthy for Him to rule and reign over. I am a stranger and a pilgrim on this evil earth and a bond-slave of my Lord, not His partner in any way. These dominionist thoughts would say we partner with the God of this universe in some unhealthy way. A slave is not a partner, but a slave. Now I will admit there is a nuance to my thoughts, so I don‚Äôt want to argue or debate this position. Although emails will get a long long meditation of this thought. This world will grow worse and worse and although I should not help it to do that, I must realize that is reality.
Frank wrote: More so, there‚Äôs been tremendous support among Christian Cubans for Pope Francis. In fact, Cubans will get a chance to see Pope Francis later this year when he visits ahead of his arrival in the United States in September, according to The Washington Post. When I came to the above paragraph, I stopped reading the article. They are obviously interchanging the word catholic with Christian and of course that isn‚Äôt true. Christianity is a finished work of Christ; a work of grace and mercy. When He came into this world, lived a perfect life for us and then died a cruel death on the cross for us, it was indeed finished. Now, admittedly there can be some confusion in the genuine body of Christ, but anyone who builds a system of belief based on lies and falsehoods, cannot be called part of His body. The RCC is satan‚Äôs church and should not ever be called Christian.
Thanks for your post Frank. I stand with you brother, Roman Catholicism is not Christian and is to be stood against it's claims to even being called a 'church'.. it is a cult. If that offends some on here...so be it. Praying for Roman Catholics that the Lord would have mercy and awaken them.
