Re: How to Date A Single Dad

On its face, it doesn't sound like bad advice, but the more I think about it, something is off. The overwhelming sense is "You are not really a part of this family. Be prepared to be bounced out of the picture at whim and get the short end of the stick. And don't gripe about it." Which is somewhat understandable in the beginning, but seems insane for anything that goes beyond a few months. I just don't quite see how that's a healthy situation. At some point, there has to be equal dedication...

nikcara, You have more than one point in your post. I will try to address them, but I hope you can forgive me if I miss one or two. Do we have differing definitions of "Christian"? What is a Christian to you? Yes, Christians do differ on issues, but they differ usually because they've started from different points of view. They have different conclusions about the world to begin with, thus they have certain differences in their worldviews, which is part of the point that I made originally.

HB, Yes, the northern abolitionist movement included people who were not Christians, but that really is beside the point. Wiliam Wilberforce in England was a Christian who almost a hundred years before the American Civil War spearheaded the British abolitionist movement. Christians here were encouraged by his success and worked very hard to abolish slavery all through the country. It's what led to our Civil War, you'll remember. They worked with many who were not Christian, but they worked...

Re: Poverty in America: Why?

soul_doctor73 ·
Though the question is a good one, the reason you 'ask' it is an example of the 'mindset' in this country as well as the world. Poverty exists for one simple reason, regardless of what one choses to believe: need. The perceived value of money surpasses that of the individual person, and since money is a 'basic necessity', people die without it. If all needs were provided for 'equally' among all men, there would be no poverty. Certainly, a world where no one needs to work in order to purchase...

Oh. I see. You point is to elimate the crime 'associated' with it? You don't have to 'condone' the 'smoking of MJ'. Your moral code cannot encompass a natural occurance. You don't have to encourage anyone to use it, they 'use' it of their own free will. And what you 'think' is wrong with it is based on what you have been taught about it. But answer this question: what do 'you' know to be wrong with it? I don't condone it. I don't encourage it. I don't think there is anything wrong with it.
