Sombody point it out to me in the bible where it says its ok to shack up and still go to church and act like your perfect. Go to church claim you got the spirit and holy ghost and talk like you walk on the street of gold in heaven then go bed down and not be married. Its pure 100% hypicroit! If your going to live by the bible then stop your sins and get married! You think god approves of what your doing? No he dont, then why take your sin in his house and pretend you worship him? Stop your fakness, its all a lie, get married if you want to be truthful.

Jus saying tell me were it states that its what they r doing. It says to go with the law of the land. And the laws says that if u r together than u r married. And don't it also say that one sin is as bad as another! Well I think it says that making judgment on someone else is a sin. So there u go. So stop ur dining and stay off here. Also gossiping is a sin. So once again u r in the wrong. I dnt even go to church an I kno that.

"well" i dont go to church either and yes gossiping is wrong and a sin is a sin but at least i dont live a lie, if im going to shack up at least i would not claim to be a holy person in church then lie when i walk out the door!

I'll show you where it says not to judge, where it says that you should accept all people, especially sinners with open arms. I'll show you where it says that talking about people behind their back is just as bad as murder. If your bible is correct how sad it will be when you burn in Hell on a technicality. Why don't you go to them in private like a grown up? Even better unless god made you judge and jury isn't it between him and the couple? Unless you are Jesus, are you Jesus?

This area will never change their cultish, backwood ways. It's always the so called christians twisting the gospel around to inhibit their bad behavior and wrongdoings instead of following the good book and 10 commandments. And I find it so interesting that some can be so hypocritical within the church that they only tend to love certain groups and kinds of people. If you don't have money to give or flaunt your not in the christian society around here. And it is wrong to shack up and go to church and to think your in the front seat to heaven, when really your in the backseat to hell. And just WHO tells you that your such a "saint" that walking through those pearly gates? Your only fooling yourself because people around you see what your doing is not righteous and the Lord will decide if your getting in. Not you or ANY preacher. You better straighten up!

No, apparently they know the Bible better than you. Jesus, Christ is Lord of all, and NOONE can condemn to Hell, except for Him. "1000 swords" is 100 0/0 correct! Maybe you should read the Bible. Actcually you condemn yourself to Hell, if you don't accept him in your life, so go on and worry about what's not any of your business and forget the fact that when we die we all have to pay for our own sins, noone is going to Hell for what I've done in my life and Praise be, I don't have to pay for anyone else's sins. Noone is perfect, but when it's said and done it's just between God and whoever stands before Him

And who said I believe in your good book? Simple minded fool, not everyone believes what you believe. You wonder why the world steers away from Christianity more and more every day it is because of people like you. Why would I join a club if the people in it are ignorant hypocrites? if people like you really believe the bible then why do you work so hard to misrepresent Christians? Sounds like you are working a lot harder for Satan to me.

first of all the bible says"come as you are",if you are a sinner and your liveing with a man or woman and you go to church one night and god calls you to the alter to be saved,do you not know that god knows your life and the way you are liveing,he knows how long you have been with that person and if theres children involved or not you got to look at that also...im not saying its ok, im just saying god understands things where some of us dont,we seem to put judgement upon others when its god's place to do that...i think that if two people are togeather and one gets saved i think people should leave them alone and let them work out their own soul salvation{the bible also says that}who knows they may have plans on getting married,or who knows what people are faceing in life..those without sin cast the first stone...and the next time you think your perfect try walkin on water....GOD BLESS!!!!

some preachers now days just lets certian things slide becuse they are there for the money! a good preacher will tell you it is wrong to live together witout being married. some people look at it like its ok, and we older folk are judged too old fashion. back in yonder years you would b shuned for your wrong doings. many people now days dont read their bibles, they live by what every one else is doning and saying so they can fit in. its a shame to watch how people live their lives, how they treat their family, how hate and selishness has over come so many people. i pray for the lost, and i pray for mercy for those who sinned..

The church the place to make right of your sins. Everyone that goes is a sinner in someway that's why we go. I don't know about you but it hard to completely turn your life around as quickly as you like. If we go by your time frame then yes we all should burn. I was stayed out of church because of people like you. Thank goodness now I realize I don't go to church for you or the person in the next row. I go to show my love for god and to get strength to correct my sins. Your foul attitude makes people veer away from church on the bias that they will be judged. I got news for you sweetheart we all are judged by the lord. Let the person you are critizing get right with the lord.....oh my goodness here's a thought help them find the way. Sister in Christ ring a bell.

Wow, it seems this topic has everyone ALL riled up! Personally, I am sick and tired of seeing all these young girls getting pregnant at 16 or 17 years old with half of them not even knowing who the father is. The other half of them finally persuade the baby's father to shack up with them and then they live off food stamps and get by from one meal to the next, depending on their good ole Mommy and Daddy to raise the baby!

I know of very few of those in this situation who even consider including Christ in their lives, much less going to Church to honor Him.

Those that do live together without being married, they are being hypocrits. But hell, at least they are going to Church! That is more than I can say for the most of them! I probably sound judgemental myself, but hey, I am just expressing my opinion on it just like everyone else. The bottom line is the Lord is going to be the One who judges us all in the end.

I thought that church was a welcoming place for all especially sinners. But I guess I was wrong about that from what I have read on here. What a shame that church has to be made into something that makes ppl not want to go. How do you know that by them going to church may make them decide to get married? If you shame them they will quit church & may never marry or go back to any church again. TO THE HYPOCRITE'S SHAME ON YOU.

Why go to church in the first place if your going to walk out the door right back into the sin that you just got through asking god to forgive you for? Thats hypoctoit!!!

He without sin please Cast the First Stone....OUCH...Who Threw that Rock ???

Seriously though I dought any of us writing to this thread is living a Christian Life (TRUTHFULLY .. NOW). I think..--and this is my Opinion ok --- When a person gets ..Saved by the Lord obove. We are going to know right from Wrong; but trust me It takes time to really change to the better, I mean some things immediately I am sure but the little things...like maybe that beer after work or maybe that Ol' pain pill after a hard days work... or What ever Your Poison is. Its takes a little time to grow and we get the growth from the KJV (KING JAMES VERSION)BiBle. that happens on Wedsdays at most churchs. but You can study at your Home or where ever. its great to learn and read a Book that is Nothing but TRUE...it takes time to change and You have to grow with the lord just think when You are Born again (getting saved) then You are a little baby all over and you have to grow up in the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Heck Read the Book. then KJV BiBle that is.

The problem is too many people don't actually read the Bible for themselves they rely on someone to tell them what is in it. Then they take it at face value b/c they were told by "someone who knows." I've read most of the Bible, and I've not read anywhere that it says that after a hard days work you can't take a pill for pain. That is if your really suffering from real pain It's only when you abuse it that it becomes an issue. They drank wine in the Bible, but it doesn't talk about them becoming drunk. That is when it was being consumed with meals. It does talk about drunkards, but not in the same context. I'm not trying to argue with you. For the most part I agree, but just not on your perception of what someone should act like.

Someone please tell me where in the Bible it says it is wrong to live with a significant other of the opposite sex. Just because you live together doesn't mean that you are having sex. Although it does happen with some, but others not so much. I am a Christian I live with my FIANCE and before we got engaged we were living together as a couple. It isn't up to you or me to cast judgement upon anyone. I go to Church when I can as in when I am not working. I fully believe in the Lord and know the miracles he is capable of. I know that he died on the cross for me so that I could saved. I am saved and I am a Baptist! I am not going to sit here and tell anyone what is right and what is wrong or debate about religion. And whose religion is the better one. I believe what I believe and that is my choice. As an American I and anyone else has the right to have whatever religion they want and live with whomever they want. If you are going to get on this website to trash other people for what they do in their own home which is their own business and call the a hypocrite then you most definitely need to take a look at yourself in the mirror.
