Yes, that is true..Billy R..hey, how's the missus? CAN ANYONE SAY...they haven''t ever SINNED? I honestly don't think they can...for mankind WAS placed on Earth..knowing that Satan was already here..setting up housekeeping. So, you can try and keep a PURE HEART and live by every Bible passage written...BUT, just eye balling THE new pastor's speaking voice..sending a peaceful message to your heart..that you could listen to him talk all day long..ISN'T that a sign of POSSESSIVENESS???

That does not excuse sin. All it is saying is not to be hypocritical in one's judgment. You really need to read the whole passage it is taken from to understand the proper context involved. The last statement in the passage was go and sin no more.

That analogy went over like a lead balloon. If one wants to quote the Bible, remember the Bible warms us to avoid presenting even an appearance that could be misconstrued as evil. I personally do not deel any need to meet with the opposite sex publicly or privately. Turning down such opportunities does no damage to me and saves me from being a possible victim of the false rumor mill.

All I am saying about the Bible is if one wants to call oneself a Christian, act like one. If somebody came crying to me over false rumors being started over meeting publicly with a member of the opposite sex who was not a spouse, my shoulder will be cold and unavailable for comfort.
So if a man was to meet a woman in public,sat down where she is at and starting talking to her about the Lord.you will still say they are sinning.This is more of what you are saying..I,a woman,have run into a male one the street and talked to him.Asked him to join us at church and we are sinning????..This stuff even happens even if both are single..So what now???

You have to admit that was a rather extreme sample. Today I got my doorbell rung by what likely was a husband wife team of Jehovah's Witnesses which I believe is the best way to go when trying to evangelize.

Likely was? You didn't answer and talk religion with them? You stayed hidden in your room preaching to us???

And if they weren't husband and wife? Out driving around together, scandalous.

That is not what went down. We had a brief, but very cordial discussion. I briefly stated my reasons why I could not consider becoming a Jehovah's Witness, but I did tell them that I admired their zeal for their faith and willingness to stand up for it.

Maybe the reason he is so attuned to the nature of gossip and how it is spread is that he is a busybody and a gossip.

Thats a very good possibility, honestly I hadn't really thought about it before.... In the 5 years I have been on Topix, I've heard all kinds of gossip about me. I've heard that I was Black,white,jewish,evangelical Christian,Buddhist,a Hitman, unemployed,a tyrannical boss that oppresses minority dishwashers, etc,etc,etc...Frankly, as long as my family and friends know the truth, I really don't care what the uninformed think......

Mrs Billy is doing great, that woman is about as steady as a person can be......Honestly, people like Flbadcatowner don't realize the damage they cause when they are so nasty and judgmental. People that were on the fence about religion will take one look at him and run the other way.

About the man and woman meeting...who know if it is family or not??? So you still going to say it's sinning.....Like it has been said before if you are the one who is gossiping you are the one who has the problem.These people are not bothering no one.You are the one who is bothering them with your gossip.
