You are being dishonest, Quin.
I never said it said fornication was OK.
I said there is no definition of fornication or Adultery anywhere in the Bible. There are specific acts forbade and premarital sex isn't one of them. Nor are several ther things you want to call "fornication".
You can have all the sexual or asexual beliefs and opinions you want, it doesn't bother me. When you (or anyone) put words in God or Jesus mouth that aren't there, THAT offend the crap out of me.
Nope... I never said that you said fornication was okay. I asked you to show me in the bible where fornication is okay... just to save time. Then you asked me to provide a definition. I did. Basically you have your own beliefs concerning the bible, I totally agree and I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

But Yes... pre-marital sex and all other types of fornications is immoral according to the Bible. I'm sorry that we aren't going to be able to agree on this.

My answer to 'wilderide' that turned into my testimony.

Part 1.

Well, my Biblical understanding is that God used to be punitive and wrathful until the last atonement sacrifice, in Jesus, was made. Now we can all be forgiven and just have to believe in Jesus as God and man who died for us, after experiencing everything we experience but without sin.

As far as the big picture goes, everything that has happened has been by grand design. Everything. I think the book of Job combined with the book of Enoch explain everything we are meant to know, separately and together. I never could understand the book of Job, until a year ago, then I got it and it was like a lightbulb effect. We are being tested, refined and purified by The Lord so that we are prepared to live a sinless, peaceful, harmonious life with each other and with Our Creator, as was originally intended. Every evil He allows, is for the purpose of teaching us but only if we want to. We have a choice, we can accept and obey and trust Our Creator or we can please ourselves. For every choice we make, there is a consequence. My understanding of The Lord is that He wants us perfect, not because he made us like programmed robots but because we choose to be. What is perfect? Jesus is, if you can put aside everything you believe and for one moment imagine the world as though every single person in it was just like Jesus… that is the end goal.

God made us like Him, with free thought and will but we are like newborn babes in a sense and have to learn and evolve to the point of being like Jesus.

I'll use my life as an example and ask for mercy as this is personal and very important to me. It would hurt me if anyone used this testimony to abuse or mock me, I'd get over it but I still feel the need to make this statement.

CONT...

Part 2.

There is no possible (for humans) or logical way that I could ever have been indoctrinated or conned or talked into anything, especially faith. My parents, my mother especially, were cult junkies and my mother was a German Gypsy born in Brazil, a witch and a High Priestess. I was 6 years old when I decided there was no God. My Mullatto Father was a gigolo and into a practice called Macumba (catholic voodoo) but my mum left him when I was 2. I was brought up with my mum and wealthy catholic step father. Without going into too much detail, I'll just tell you that I was used as a specific type of sacrifice from the ages of 4 to 12. I followed in my mothers footsteps and became a very young High Priestess, because I had no alternative and I was filled with hate and fury.
Then it came time for me to hurt a child, my baby sister (ten years younger). I couldn't. I took her, in the middle of the night and left, hid, then went to child services, thank God that by that time we lived in Australia, where parents are not permitted to abuse their children, no matter how much money they have.
I was emotionally, physically, spiritually and sexually abused.

(yes Hiding, I know some religions use sex to celebrate their gods, it's enlightened of you to find it so amusing, I didn't think so when I was 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 years old)

I don't think that most people who live in well developed Western countries, especially the younger, know it all generation, have any concept of the spirit world. Or real in your face evil. If they did, they would not joke about such things and would know where most of their ideas came from.
By the time I was 17, I felt very old and was a pure Agnostic Atheist, I buried my knowledge of the bad and refused to consider any possibility of good. I studied for years and I was and still am, to an extent, analytical, skeptical, sarcastic and very jaded. I despised religions and churches as well as all the evil they represented.

When I found God, I wasn't really looking, I married an Atheist. He married me to rebel against his Christian clan.
Almost 4 years ago, I accepted Jesus into my heart and everything changed...
I was impatient with a fiery temper, God gave me my middle child, now I'm sure I have the patience of Job, almost.
I was terrible with finances, then became a poor single mother and learnt the hard way.
I was proud and arrogant, got knocked down a few pegs and no longer have any pride at all.
I was rigid and unforgiving, now forgiveness is as natural as breathing.
I was selfish and now I only give.
I was materialistic and ambitious, now I'm kind and generous.
I was an angry, emotional wreck unless working, now I'm calm and feel peace and joy and love.
Now I need to work on turning the other cheek, which is hard for me, it seems I was born fighting, as a pagan I believed I was ruled by the god of war, I was always defending someone, or myself. So being trodden on with a smile on my face is a challenge, then just when I'm ready for this challenge, I stumble into topix.

This is my proof, for me, most people in my situations and up to two years ago, with my crappy circumstances, end up insane, dead, drug addicts, in prison etc… I've seen it. I've almost been some of it. No one can ever convince me that there is no God. He saved me, He Blessed me, He truly loves me.

I made the right choice, finally, if it turns out to be a lie so be it, this is the best my life has ever been and it just keeps getting better :-)

To quote Serah... "Thank you Jesus for caring."

Bonsoir Madame Tam, your words have touched my heart, it makes me feel now like watching a beautiful sunrise as it sets over the horizon. In regards to our being beautiful that to us is an internal quality that radiates outward. This type of beauty never fades unless we allow it to do so, I am sure you agree with me. What is beauty to you Madame Tam? How do you judge it and I can see clearly that you see with your heart and not your eyes. Have you yourself been judged harshly? If so, may I ask what for? You may of course ask the same of me and Seraphine we have been and still are at times on the physical level you see, sadly this form of prejudice is more difficult to eradicate, all bigotry begins in the heart and the soul, our thoughts whether for good or naught manifest themselves for all to see. You have a beautiful heart and spirit, let no person allow that light to go out within you, our job is to keep that light burning in every person we meet, it is that simple. There are too many who allow that light to flicker and then it dims, then it dies out. We need to being it to life again. I would very much like to establish a dialogue with you, should you desire it, I will admit my formal nature cannot be helped Seraphine is slightly more informal than I but this is what makes her special *Smiles* no two people are the same. A garden is made beautiful only if the flowers differ. I am looking foward to hearing from you my friend.
