SPOIL.....VERSE JAMES 1:2 IF ANYONE CONSIDERS HIMSELF RELIGIOUS AND YET DOES NOT KEEP A TIGHT REIN ON HIS TONGUE, HE DECEIVES HIMSELF AND HIS RELIGION IS WORTHLESS.
JUST WONDERING SPOIL IS THIS FLESH OR BONES OF THE BIBLE?
Rebuke my children? As in dissaprove of a behaviour, yes did that. Did it make me a meanie, to them at the time no doubt, later they say it was the best thing. But I didn't go off on a tangent, or scream the house down.
Your rebuking is coming off as that.
I'm just suggesting a kinder, gentler approach, rather than fire and brimstone.
I'm not even going to attempt to quote any scripture here, but to focus on the title of this posting, I sure hope I'm divorced! I'm pretty sure that's what my papers say, and I will add THANK GOD! While I'm not sure happiness is our ultimate goal here on earth, I am sure that God didn't intend for me to be miserable and living with a verbal abuser, who was sending me down a very dark road before I realized it and got out of the marriage. I view that as saving myself -- the divorce and support is the icing on the cake!
Put any tag on yourself that you wish, like your given name, it is only a name. There are many pathways to spirituality. It is your spirituality that is important, not the pathway or the route that you take to get there.
Knight's body does NOT belong to her husband!!! Nor hers to him. That is the basis for all the sexual abuse that goes on within marriage.
Quite seriously Spoil it is high time you got your nose out of the outdated Old Testament of the Bible and live in the real world.
No other wonder you are still without a woman in your life. Do you quote chapter and verse to them in bed? Oh no of course not, you will be remaining celibate until your wedding day, are you not, given the diatribe you have been writing on here!!
Criticising others on this board does not endear you to anyone. One read of your profile tells me that you do not practice what you preach!!!!
Get real, Spoil, and live in the REAL world, not in a world that existed thousands of years ago when man wasn't allowed to have a mind of his own, let alone use it.
