Putting things into context and basic comprehension would be of great benefit for you "why". My prior post stated that the word "prostitute" is in the Bible. A synonym is "hooker". You should have no problem with my use of the word "hooker" if you have no problem with the Word of God. Your passage regarding immodest apparel is off topic when discussing the specific word "prostitute". I see that you have a great problem with Christians who are against immodesty and porn. I would submit to you that I'm not your problem,you are. I understand that immodest dress and the like are evil. Don't you? Again,if you are unaware of the use of the word "prostitute" in the Bible, you really should look it up. And if you have a problem with someone mentioning the word "hooker",you really should avoid articles that deal with dress codes as they are much more explicit than you,apparently,are able to handle as you visualize so much more from a simple word than most. Again,the Lord can set you free from such. You might be able to see more clearly if you would allow Him to aid you.
"Why is"...you answer your question for me "...you think that the word hooker shouldn't conjure up foul imagery, then why do you use it all the time?" Because I wouldn't think that it would conjure up foul imagery any more than the word "prostitute" does in the Bible. They are synonyms,in case you didn't know. The word "prostitute" is in the Bible. Look it up,providing you can without thinking of filth which I'm guessing must have been something that you,yourself,allowed in the gateway of your eye at some time for it to be so problematic for you at the mention of such a word as hooker. I'm hoping that you didn't read the article now as it was more specific. By the way,and the narrow way it is,whom the Lord sets free is free indeed. You might want to take issue with your own choices than with me. It's quite liberating!
Yes,ad on,pretty straight forward. And "why is"-again,I think the article is more detailed in describing the immodest garb. You might want to check out the Bible as well. It uses the word "prostitute". If the word "hooker" conjures up foul imagery in your mind,you may consider where it came from.
Scott,the faux pa would agree with a lot of these issues too but he's hardly a Christian example.In fact,he's a false teacher. Most people agree that murder is wrong too...and a vast majority of them are agnostic. Rejoice that some of the brethren in Christ use discernment.
As curious suggests "...The words we speak are spirit and life, just as Christ spoke." It would seem that curious is in agreement with Lisa. Words that are spirit and life are of truth as well. I would suspect that,instead of judging peoples' motives who are in disagreement with ecumenical pushers,the celebrity followers might consider that it is more loving to warn in truth than it is to not rock the boat while many succumb to deception. And,yes,KK.I think that in these instances when the vandals are allowed to have at it without the intercession of authorities,that the real victims (businesses and home owners and the like) should switch residences physically with the higher ups who were negligent in their call and those who made such bad judgment calls should have to live in the mess that they allowed for. The big house in the capitol is big enough for the displaced families and the vandalized towns are big enough for the likes of racial instigators.
Maybe,"why is",you should read the article. It does clarify the dress standards for women as well... in a little more detail. Perhaps you should stop being bothered with my concern over the lack of modesty and consider why such is particularly bothersome to one as yourself who claims to be a Christian. You should be bothered by immodesty as well and also rejoice when there are measures made to address it. Got conviction?
Re-revisionist,the Apotheosis of Washington is not so subtle after all. Speaking of not being able to see the forest for the trees... Thanks for the item of interest. Anyone who questions whether or not GW was a freemason might like to take a gander at this.
Pennned suggests "... There is some good in this, let them see evil for what it is, should cause repulsion and fear." They didn't catch the evil in the rest of the junk posing as that which is positive. I would suggest that they can't because they are deceived. What's the Christian's excuse? Many Christians only get bothered by the fruit of apostasy and idol worship when they should have considered the root of it and been disturbed by everything else that paved the way for the more "obvious" filth. And again, statues,paintings and monuments are just in our face tokens of that which we have already embraced and been duped by. Your comment as such illustrates the deception. The lost are deceived and the saved choose to close their eyes unless it's a shared,pet abomination like homosexuality or satan worship.
The Kenyan President,himself,has already addressed the issue FG. Get off your limelight podium. If the President didn't care to heed the Kenyan President's advice,he probably won't heed yours. Maybe FG needs to come a notch down from his messiah complex too.
What's more sobering is that this nation has already sacrificed our children to the devil. The message is not beware of this statue and the devil worshipers. This statue is a monument to what we've already done. Look at who you serve. The people dressed in their witch apparel are not the enemies. We are. We invited the devil into our houses through our entertainment choices and "holidays" and the like. The problem with "here is the problem"'s post is that one doesn't have to bow down or "worship" monuments for them to be deemed idols. The monuments are there because they represent what is already worshiped. The stat of lib may not be perceived or regarded to most as diana but the spirit behind it is. And learning more/researching who and what is behind these,let's face it,obviously odd statues and monuments,can be most valuable in discerning the "state of the union". The facts are very eye opening and I have to ask- why would anyone accept at face value weird buildings and statues? The stat of liberty has sun rays around her head for example. Just because one trusts in their country,they accept anything and close their eyes to the obvious? Maybe this is why santa,etc. are such easy sells.
It's odd,Christopher because it's distorted and irrational.I wouldn't say it's infantile because that would be complimentary in comparison. We've all been drilled with the excuses that you have mentioned. The truth is we do more harm to those who are of darker skin color when we try to justify their bad choices than if we would simply treat them like a non-white in the same situations. This is all about "equality" after all. Isn't that what every racist harps on?
Good for HP for discouraging women from dressing like hookers. A few will probably leave as a result but they probably won't be missed and productivity will probably improve. It is a very poor business choice to let women dress immodestly. Walking into a business and being greeted by a receptionist who looks like she belongs in a night club doesn't give a patron much confidence in the business.
KK wrote "...you can't just open the front door and let them all in..." Maybe we should open the door and let some of our own degenerates out. Next time the racist opportunists rally together for a smash and grab,we could usher them out - of the country...send them to their "motherland" and see how such behavior sets with them. They might get a new revelation in exercising control.
His message was swatted down by the Kenyan President. lol Homey's message wasn't embraced. He must have been shocked by such a reaction since he is used to pretty much dictating what shall be even if it is unconstitutional or unreasonable. Maybe he's not above the law in his "motherland"...so much for his "messiah" complex.
Perry said "...Maybe more people will hear of him in this song than would listen to his preaching on religious TV channels. I think Paul said in one of his letters, "...I became all things to all men that I may save one..." And the application to Osteen is Faith comes by hearing the Word of God not through motivational speakers who have a twisted view of it.
Excellent observation,Frank! The way I see it,these news items are just a distraction to the enemy within. We have our worst enemies among ourselves and other nations know it. They don't have to waste their time and resources destroying us; they can sit back and watch us do it to ourselves and then,like a vulture,clean up thereafter.
Ones vocation determines whether one works what is 8 hrs a day or less. Many people have to work much more and are paid much lower wages. Others work little even while on the job and already get over a third of the year off when figuring in the weekends and "holidays"...not to mention vacations which can be an additional 4-6 weeks. Another consideration is automation taking over. Things were much more efficient before its proliferation.
