    Part of being a man is loving your wife no matter how she is feeling, no matter if she is grouchy, no matter if you get sex when you want it or not. This is learning to love in a very true sense with the love of God. When she says "no" it is so easy to feel hurt and to even feel bitter. But as a husband one must continually put those feelings aside, throw those emotions away. If you run away, then even the little bit of good times will also be lost. In a very real sense, we husband have to be continually reaffirming, loving and kind.

    The Events of The Bible

    Was there a real man named Jesus who lived 2000 years ago? Was he the "son" of God? Did he do any or all of the things that the Gospels say that he did? What does that mean? What is God?

    Some Christians say that there is historical evidence that Jesus lived.

    Some historians say that there is no record of Jesus in any of the contemporary writings of his time. There is only a brief mention of him in the writings of Josephus a hundred years later.

    Godliness Versus Christianity

    Submitted by Stephen Winters

    It seems to me that there is a vast difference between godliness and modern day christianity. Godliness is about believing and living by that which is true.  So, it could be compared to living by the scientific method.

        Ask a Question
        Do Background Research
        Construct a Hypothesis
        Test Your Hypothesis by Doing an Experiment
        Analyze Your Data and Draw a Conclusion
        Communicate Your Results

    Thereby you have tested it for yourself and can more readily "believe" what you have yourself seen and done.

    In some ways I'm a ..... probably more than most people. I'm very aware of the presence of germs and other contaminants all over the place. It doesn't stop me from living, but .... Whenever I've petted the dog and I'm about to eat, I'll wash my hands. When I'm cutting up raw meat, I realize how important it is to keep the raw meat away from any surface that it might contaminate. I don't use the same knife to cut up raw meat and then to cut up raw vegetables for the salad. Before I use my hands to handle food I first wash my hands.

    Being joyful is a choice that we make. Our attitude is our choice.

    "Count it all joy..." "Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice."

    "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. " James 1:2-4

    What does it mean to be a virgin? In a strictly legalistic or physical sense, we might call a young woman a virgin who has never had sex. Some would say that a true sign of virginity is if the woman still has her hymen intact.. But is that all that virginity means? In a larger sense, being a virgin means .... not being in bondage to unwholesome thoughts or desires. She has a pure mind that is free from the guilt and shame of ...

    When someone loose her virginity, there is a certain amount of shame and humiliation that follows.

    Scripture Memory?

    When I was younger I used to memorize many Bible verses. I was so proud of all the verses that I had memorized. However, in recent years I am actually repulsed at the idea of "memorizing scripture"

    I think it's because there are so many other valuable writings as well. For instance, I just received an email from Carlton Pearson. Within his email was this thought:
