I agree with US. Not all medicine is bad. A wise woman once told me to climb a ladder-seek natural and after a reasonable amount of time if that hasn't worked then seek medical. In some cases, it's life or death and should not be questioned. As for vaccines, my house is divided. Until furthur research is done on some parties part we err to the side of safety and refuse them. You can't undo them but you can always go get them.
I admit I didn't read the full article. When I click on the link, on my phone, it takes me to a sermonaudio page not to the article. Maybe I am missing something but I fail to see how any of the comments posted are irrelevant to topic at hand.
I should have added this earlier:the door swings both ways. A boy will think he needs to look and act like what he sees. A girl will think a boy needd to look and act like what she sees. Both will be left unsatisified with reality. And when they continue this nasty habit into their marriage do they expect the spouse to be ok?! It's betrayal and will lead to a divorce or a messed up marriage for.years to come (even among christian marriages). Lust is not a sin to be taken lightly. Joseph fled instead of sticking around to see what would happen. Again, the look is where it starts. Example being David. It's important for parents to teach their children to avert their eyes.
Kids at 10 do not need internet access or cellphones or anything like that. Once they're older and more trained then I think limited internet access on a computer is ok. Unless the child is driving age I see no reason for a cellphone and even then a tracfone works fine for emergencies. Parents should have filters and should be holding their children accountable..Ir shouldn't stop there. Parents need to hold each other accountable as well. Sin doesn't stop once you reach a certain age. Oh the troubles these children are setting themselves up for is heartbreaking. A girl will think she needs to look and act like what she sees. A boy will think a girl needs to look amd act like what he sees. Both will be left unsatisified as reality doesn't match up with pretend (this goes for magazines, movies, etc. Loads of makeup and chemicals and editing achieves an unrealistic look that the person themself doesn't even look like)
Frank, I agree discussing feminism with the lost is useless in and of itself. There are more important matters like their salvation which is why I make sure to include Christ in my replies. They ,lost family, ask questions (and sometimes harrass us) as to why we do the things we do. Feminism has been brought up on numerous occassions.
Don't misunderstand me. I'm not justifying feminism. These are just things the lost have brought up in conversations and I can see where they are coming from. But I guess without Christ it's easy to live in fear. I like your example. I'll remember it next time one my lost family members and I discuss feminism.
Frank, I agree with your comment. However, I can understand why feminism is such a tempting thing for women. Who wants to be put in a position where they're forced to remain if the situation gets bad. An example would be Doug Phillips. Look at what he preached and the gross sin he committed. He taught, and he's right in this area, that women are to be keepers at home. He taught the be fruitful and multiply stuff. His wife is a stay at home mom with lots of kids. She has no way to support herself. Could she just up and leave? No. Given forgivness is a must but staying in such a scenario is not. So yea I see the temptation. Who wants to be forced to depend on such a man and remain in a marriage like that? Of course not all are that way. I'm sure she didn't think he was like that when they got married. And women are just as bad (it takes two to tango) but man are capable of supporting themselves.
I don't know much about this man and what he teaches but I can say this much it's very unfortunate that another high profile "christian" man has commited this sin. It does a great deal of harm to the body of Christ and brings a great deal of shame to His Name.
I have a child who has a lot of energy (and no junk food is not a big part of her diet). I know that if we were to put her into public school or take her to a doctor they would label her as "adhd" . And just for the head shakers, she recieves biblical discipline. My point is, is that yes my child has a lot of energy but she's only four. Energy is to be expected. Medicine is not neccessary. And what Penny wrote here speaks volume " they need to be outside, on a farm, doing work, enjoying nature. outside. this is how God made them. to eat real food. " Opening the doors and letting her run around outside or taking nature walks is a huge help in helping her get her energy out.
