Haven't we all.
Quarter pounders, steak and shake burgers, and bacon and eggs are the staples of life.
Thankfully I don't even like lobster or shrimp, so maybe I have a chance.
I was stoned several times when I was young and full of youthful exuberance, but I think they are talking about a different kind of stoned.
Good morning no offense to stoning I knew what you meant. What would I do without my sausage McMuffin each day when I work and my coffee choice of the day. If we dissect the Bible it will always be easy to judge someone, I can't never could. My theme is "not perfect, but forgiven". Yes to San Francisco but I don't know how many points. I am pumped already and can't wait, I love the game, the commercials and all the food we are having. Oh yes I have candles for the gas emitting that comes along with the game.

That's why you have to read the whole Bible. The Old Testament is a history and background of the foundation of the world. People used to have to sacrifice animals for their sins to be forgiven, but then Jesus came and died on the cross once and for all for any sin that anyone could ever commit, so we no longer have to sacrifice animals.
EXACTLY, ALSO IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, PAUL BEGINS LAYING OUT LAWS REGARDING THE SEXES, AND THE PROPER ROLE OF WOMEN.

1 Corinthians 14:34,35 - "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church."

1 Timothy 2:11,12 - "Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence."

AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO PAUL THE APOSTLE.

If you're sleeping in church, it's highly likely you're going to be burning up one day anyways...

I have a paragraph to add. I think some of you read the Bible this week; the subject matter sparked your interest. The forum got crazy as usual but the bottom line was women speaking in church meaning the business of the church. If a woman is where she needs to be with God it is not punishment but an honor. Let the men duel it out and believe me they get vocal. Church work can be an honor and privilege. I don't think women should teach men but a woman can teach the women's Sunday School class. Its very rewarding.

Laura you need to drag your self to the 21 century. There are millions of educated intelligent women who are qualified to teach. Women teachers teach our kids everyday. Even though I knew you meant in the church.

Hey big guy of course I meant the church you have taught me to be sure and stay on the subject remember. Yep I have taught the little children in church and I taught the adult women for 5 years and the neatest thing was my mother was in the class. I am happy in my own skin and roll with the punches (not abuse though), I have no problem with the rules. Ah you would laugh if you met me though.

Everyone is so caught up in rules of religion that you are all missing the point. I have to agree with 2cents worth. We don't need mega churches, just the love of God and you don't need a building or Deacons or preachers, it's a personal relationship between you and God

Paul created many many "rules" in his writings. Here is another example of something that the Apostle Paul has stated, and that is in the Bible, and therefore according to Christianity, is THE WORD OF GOD:

LISTEN UP MEN>>>>

The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 11:14-15:
"Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering."

Nature teaches me that if I don't get a haircut, then my hair grows long just as a woman's - and so it is nature itself which grows my hair long. I also think about Samson and Jesus. The Lord gave Samson his strength through his hair - and although it does not ever mention the length of Jesus' hair in scripture that I can find - I cannot remember seeing a picture of Jesus in other than long hair.

Perhaps the question begins to become, not does the world need building or Deacons or preachers - BUT DOES THE WORLD NEED PAUL? PAULS TEACHINGS?

Pauls says things over and over that disagree with the Scriptures, with Christ, with the Disciples. And he is the author of most of the rules that have divided the churches over the centuries.

Paul is even the only reference eve given for the setting up of the deacons, elders, etc.

I think several places in the New Testament give reference to deacons, pastors as well as women. Older Women are to teach the younger ones. In mega churches you lose some of the rules but not all. Its refreshing when a young woman comes and asks how to act in church. You are left with an older woman deciding on "do your own thing." That is often embarrassing for the young woman and can be disruptive to the entire church so show her where to find the truth in the Bible. Many times when a church allows "anything goes" regarding deacons etc the church undergoes a large falling away. I say what is wrong with the rules of church they are not so restrictive anyway if you truly believe in the Bible. I think of Jesus with longish hair. I don't know why and I think of him having olive skin like residents of his region. The stories of Samson, Paul, Ruth and many others are good and better than some modern books. I have some issues with Esther though.

LOL - This girl is hilarious. She quotes again and again how she doesn't think that actual scriptural rules given by Paul are nOT something she believes in, or follows for herself - then says the bible is the reference for everything! I think Laurel Wood is just a big giant hypocrit that basically makes up her own rules as she goes, fitted to what SHE wants to do, and then opens her mouth to say whatever she thinks sounds good.

Translated: She has no conviction, no substance, selfish and spoiled. She would make a good spokesperson for the church.

<quoted text>Yes I agree. I was once a deacon;People would really be surprised what is actually discussed in those closed meetings. It is like everything else in this world, it is all about the greenbacks once that door is closed. Paid preachers can get a little testy when it comes to money issues and benefits that the church pays them. The very same church eventually split over mostly money. The original church was sold and tore down for a parking lot here in town.
I would have never thought that.What in the world caused you to be so bitter?

That Paul fella strikes me as a know-it-all, opinionated and generally nosey little person who more than likely was a self-proclaimed Apostle.

He somehow managed to get himself "published" in the various editions of the Bible which, unforunately, have endured for centuries. Even though his opinions are expressed in writing, little attention is paid.

Even in his time, he was probably told many times throughout the day, "Thouest shouldeth mindeth thou own business".

The Reverend Billy Graham has always worn his hair long. Guess he's going to Hell too, according to Paul the "Apostle".

Thet Holy Spirit told me that Christianity is not God's church. Ain't nothing but fractured, split up greedy pack of dogs leading foolish people around thet is lookin fer somethin. Them peoples ain't gonna find what they is lookin fer in them churches. They needs to get out and opens theys eyes and opens theys hearts. Then theys will find God. But they gots to get out and seek him. Listenin to them soft words a ticklin at theys ears as they past that basket won't lead em nowhere but ta poorhouse and spiritual slavery to da dark one.

Paul spent the later part of his life serving God by spreading the Gospel to thousands of people and he was in constant danger almost everywhere he went.
