All it was talking about was, Don't dress like a prostitute. Wasn't talking about something simple, like a pair of jeans. In those days, woman would dress up and put a mark on them, that meant they were ready to go to work.

Just like woman growing their hair down to their ankles. It says for a woman to keep her hair covered on account of the angels. Look, the angels do not care if you have long hair or not. They will still find you appealing, I assure.

These same angels are coming back with the return of Anti-Christ. Guess who they are going to be after ? Woman. Keep your heads covered !

i went to his one church for ten years...........i raised my two children on the front seat, my daughter started singing in church when she was eight years old. we did't know to do anything else escept going to church we loved the lord and wanted to be there to serve him and do his will.i had a bad marrige though and always fighting at home, i prayed to god to give me a way out, i prayed for years for the lord to give me peace. one day he did give me that peace that i had prayed for ...for so long. i left my husband and took only the clothes on my back and my two teenage children and never look back. HOWEVER when we went back to church on sundat i was met in the parking lot and told to leave because i was sining and god was not in what i was doing. i was told i needed to be in a church where i was loved and wanted. this was all said in front of my two children who were at the time 12 and13 years old. needless to say i did leave that church and never looked back there again eithsr. oddly enough though it was the deacons in the church that ask me to leave and now one of those deacons is actually the pasture there. well i have went back once or twice since the well actually 20 years later and the church is dead. that pasture needs to leave there so the church can come to life again. when i read the bible it tells me to go out and find the lost sheep and bring them in not go out in the parking lot and tell them to leave. i can't get either of my children to go to church now .when i ask them to they tell me if they go some one will just come out and tell them to leave. these people have hurt my children so bad i don't think they will ever go back again. please pray for them. they are 32 and 33 years old now thats a long time to carry all that hurt around.

Most preachers are full of crap.

I will not step foot into a church, nor listen to very few preachers, at all.

I seem to be better educated in scripture than most of them.

Don't let something like that make you quit going. They are only human and are prone to sin like everyone. Remember there are no righteous people. Church members, like everyone else are sinners. Please just forgive them and go where the lord wants you.

I'm sorry this happened to you and your girls. No one should ever be asked to leave the house of the lord, for any reason.

Unfortunately it's hard to find many Christians today who will stand up for Jesus. The country is filled with "feel good" churches and a hundred other things that Jesus spoke against. Remember that we are facing the end times where the hearts of men will "wax cold". Love thy neighbor is almost unheard of in this modern world. If you have been around true born again Christians they try to come out from amongst them. Sad to say, many folks are "so called" Christians on Sunday and live like the devil during the week!

"You believe unto righteousness"

If you truly believe Jesus Christ is the son of God and accept him as your LORD and savior you are righteous. You become righteous through his righteousness, not yours. IF YOU BELIEVE WITH YOUR HEART.... Plain and simple biblical fact, the woman here sined and her husband also, for giving her a writ of divorce and Yes she should be kicked out of her church and her husband also.

jesus is not god. he is the beast who once was, now is not, yet will come. a prophet, a serpent. jesus even referred to himself as a prophet, or one that was sent.

idolatry is forbidden.

1 John 5:21
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Colossians 3:5
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

When we are saved we are borned again not of the mothers womb but of jesus christ and we grow in or walk with Jesus just like when we were baby in the natural now if your baby falls when he starts to walking or maybe he has started running this woman said she had been there 10 yrs. so most 10 year old can run but the could fall and it could have been from something they ran into and they had ask that it be moved maybe they prayed for a better place to run as a earthly Farther who loved his child he would do all that he could to make it the right place for him to run why because he loved his child know if a earthly farther can love that much how much more can our heavenly farther love. the bible teaches us to let the tire and wheat grow up to together and he will do the seperation

wrong, to be born again in water and spirit(fire) means to be reincarnated again into life.

John 3:5
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

we see this same idea in the creation of heaven and earth; when the spirit(fire) moves upon the face of the waters and heaven and earth come into realization.

this is why it mentions in verse 8 that everyone is born of the spirit. not some but everyone. thus all come down from heaven and all ascend up to heaven.

there are only two deaths.

one is born into death via ignorance this is why it is written.

let the dead bury the dead and

Ecclesiastes 9:5
For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

for they do not know that their reward is everlasting life.

the second death is the physical death itself.

those who overcome the 1st death, knowing Spirit is eternal, the second death has no power over them.

jesus is not the ABSOLUTE. idolatry is repeatedly forbidden through out both the old and the new testament.

I was always raised that Christian women should wear dresses and not jeans/pants. Why...because, supposedly the bible says that women shouldn't wear mans clothing.
However, I always wandered how they deemed jeans/pants mans clothing and dresses woman's clothing when I always seen biblical images of men wearing robes and dresses??? Really confusing stuff 4 me!!!

That statement is right on.....You are not your own, ye are the temple of God. God does not dwell in temples made by mans hands.

The Bible teaches each and every individual what "they" want to hear and learn. Any position you or I take we can support by hand picking scripture. This problem is compounded when we listen to all the self proclaimed "Men of god". You make some good points and a lot of folks will support those points.

For me personally, The Bible tells me that divorce is not an option, soooo..... I had better take my time, pray and do all I can to make sure before I marry someone. If I choose wrong and pick a sour grape, then I better learn to enjoy eating sour grapes.

I then can find a church and a preacher that will tell me its o.k. go ahead and get a divorce but the Biblical fact remains......if unfaithfullness is not involved ...then....I am disobeying if I divorce my wife or husband. My bad decisions do not give me the right to disobey the head of the body, the chief cornerstone of the temple.

To those who wear inappropriate clothing.
I would suggest, if you were to visit the President or Queen, you would wear your finest.
How much more respect does God command?
I don't expect the latest designer stuff; just respectful attire.

Well after reading all the posts in this thread, what can I say? We are living in the last days, and people's hearts will be cold and the church will be luke warm.

We are in the laodicean church age. It seems like either pastors and church members are either the Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyer type who hawk that heretical "prosperity gospel" garbage that has made many people give up on God and become atheists all because they believed that God will make things possible for them to live rich and perfect lives which when you read the Bible that is the farthest you can get from the truth.

Just ask the disciples and early church followers who died martyr's deaths, and considering the kind of people that are running the world right now (the Illuminati) don't be surprised if this persecution comes to our front doors in the future.

The pastors and church members either believe that or they believe the polar opposite the traditional "hell, fire, brimestone/ salvation by works/legalism formula that basically does the same thing as the prosperity gospel but even more quickly and that's produce atheists and agnostics who don't want anything to do with Christianity.

I personally get my church fix from the internet right now, here is where I go when I need to ask difficult questions, request prayer, and to fellowship. http://discussions.godandscience.org/

It's the exact polar opposite of topix and the exact polar opposite of most churches in the area, there you can ask questions and the place is not over run by annoying "internet atheists" and most of the people there are very nice and very helpful, it's one of the greatest social experiences I've ever had in my life.

But if any of you all still want to physically be involved with a local church, I guess I would recommend Barbourville Church of God.

Now I've personally never been there so I don't know how the church members and pastor are like but I know for a fact that one of the most lovable, precious and angelic individuals on the face of the earth attends that church....and let's just leave it at that.

So in a nutshell, that's my quick take on the local church scene currently.
