Re: Everyone is Saved! Whether or not you are a member of the church!

We will all be saved from death. No matter how wicked you are, and regardless of if ordinances are ever done on your behalf or accepted, you will be resurrected. Many people believe this means we're all saved. Almost all of us will be saved in a kingdom of glory. People like to say someone like Ted ...

Re: Destructive fantasies and hypocrisy

Question: If we can't keep a commandment joyfully should we not bother with it until we can do so joyfully or should we keep that commandment anyway? Having grown up in the South, I miss sweet tea and feel a longing for it every time it's on a restaurant menu. Since I don't feel joyful in declining...

The interpretation doesn't require a great deal of effort or knowledge. The woman is the Church, the child is the Kingdom of God. Birth is a beginning. Children start small.

Re: What would you do with an intruder at the door?

Whether or not it is a commandment really doesn't matter.

She can't really do that if sex is one-sided an...

She assumes, rather boldly, that everyone with children is in a relationship.

I often find it's single moms who are sac...

They may not realize it at the time, but they will realize it at some point. At that point why dig their heels in even more firmly instead of realizing something's not right?
