Search Abigail Miller on youtube..that's edfiying music. Christian rock n roll? No such thing. You can't "christianize" what isn't holy.....with that logic we could have christian bars, christians harlots, christian witchcraft, etc.
Patterened socks " Many women simply 'love the world' and follow worldly fashions, hence they wear leggings that look like women's tights. Would they have gone out in just their tights 5 years ago?
But it is the fashion!
Methinks that is the problem with some 'Christian' women, the fashion magazine and worldly TV and media is their guide, not their Bible, or chaste and godly church members who are probably elderly ladies in their own church!"
Methinks, you're right. I'd also add that many haven't really counted the cost nor what it means to deny self, pick up the cross, and follow Jesus. I have my own personal stories that stengthen my convictions. There's a difference in the way I'm treated (compared to my pants day) and I've noticed a lot of people will just be convicted by my dress alone...justifying themselves when no word was said. The way we dress does matter.
Pants for women didnt become the "norm" until after world war 2. It was at the same time that women started working outside the home. It's a feminist movement. Basically saying that there's no difference between genders though there is (ever notice bathroom signs though that line is gettig blurred). The saying "who wears the pants in the relationship" takes on a whole different meaning if done biblically. And I can do pretty much everything in my skirt that I did in pants-hike, run, ride fourwheelers(a great time to have leggings on). The only thing I can think of that I cant do is dribble a ball between my legs...but do I really need to do that?
Cody wrote: " Its alright for a lady to wear pants as long as she doesn't put them on so that men will look at her " Negative. Pants draw attention to a woman's figure. Deut. 22:5 also applies. If you look up the word breeches n the KJV you'll see that it appears 5times, each time a man is being talked about.
Leggings are a part of mine and my girls wardrobe but they're an undergarment. They add warmth and modesty ex: little.girls that tumble around.
The Father imposed His wrath due unto, and the Son underwent punishment for, either: 1. All the sins of all men. 2. All the sins of some men, or 3. Some of the sins of all men. In which case it may be said: a. That if the last be true, all men have some sins to answer for, and so none are saved. b. That if the second be true, then Christ, in their stead suffered for all the sins of all the elect.in the whole world, AND THIS IS THE TRUTH. c. But if the first be the case, why are not all men free from the punishment due unto their sins? You answer, Because of unbelief. I ask, Is this unbelief a sin, or is it not? If it be, then Christ suffered the punishment due unto it, or He did not. If He did, why must that hinder them more than their other sins for which He died? If He did not, He did not die for all their sins! - John Owen
More or less rambling I suppose US. Just a topic that brought to mind another topic. Anyways, I am curious how many of these single mothers are single mothers in a biblical way (ex: the husband passed away) and how many are single due to feminsim. There are work at home jobs. Im done rambling..

Why Mike aren't you aware that you're not capable of being in control of your own body?!?! If you refuse to do as they say they'll legally force you to and the media will brainwash people into applauding the government...nice :/
In a rare instant where the radio was on I heard a bunch of women griping about not being treated fairly at their workplace because they're women and then a pastor, more like a hireling, started preaching to these women about being content in their current job. Know what he didn't preach? The bible. He should of told the women to pack it up and go home...and as Dorcas husband says "bake some cookies". Reading this article brings to mind conversations I've had on women staying home (which is Biblical and what the Bible teaches!!!) And for whatever reason professing christians choose to justify women working instead of sticking with Scripture. Talk about frustrating. Working outside the home tends to make women the bread winner and gives them the attitude of "Ms Independamt" and "Dont need a man". Feminism. Quit justiying it.
Cheerleaders, violence, man in tights, the game is on sunday-there's more but this alone should cause christians to run the other way. when you flirt with the world and are entertained as they are it's not long before you're full of compromise and no one can tell you apart. Dorcas, excellent sermon
John UK wrote: " I have also seen Christian ladies who, after a while since their conversion, ceased wearing makeup and jewellery, and ceased wearing jeans in favour of skirts and dresses, and did not cut their hair short after the modern fashion. And it was the Holy Ghost, speaking through his word to their hearts, that did the job. This is not legalism but sanctification, and it is the Lord's work."
My husband has gifted me with a gun. Not only will it serve as protection while the man of the house is gone to work but as protection from wild animals. For ex: if my children and I decide to walk through the woods you'd better believe my gun is coming. We have hogs in my neck of the woods. I dont know if you know anything about hogs but they're mean. We had one rip our dog to pieces . If we were to come upon a hog there's no way I could climb a tree with four little ones. So my options are to, of course, pray we don't come upon one and to be prepared in case we do. Indeed guns are useful.
Solutions, you realize that the first murder (Cain anf Abel) took place without the aid of a gun.....aw so it appears your solution doesn't work but instead creates problems as Christopher has pointes out. Bad guys don't care abouy gun laws. They'll get them and use them regardless if they're banned. And who will they use them on? The good guys who you are argueing should be ripped of protection.
