Hello people. I need some Christian advice.
My boyfriend of 1.5 years recently told me that he had sex with his previous girlfriend once while they were dating. He and I are saving sex for marriage and we have talked about virginity and how far we have been gone physically with our other partners -and in all those conversations, he told me to had never had sex before. Then he finally admitted to me after almost a year and a half of being in a serious relationship with him that he is not a virgin. He lied to me and deceived me for over a year. I forgave him for lying to me of course. But since he told me about this, I have lost a little bit of trust for him because now I am wondering if he has lied to me about anything else. If you lie...
I've been single my whole life, though I have had transient crushes on various girls over the years (and vice versa). But nothing has come from any of it - no one made any moves, or the moves weren't recognized - mainly because I was just blind to it.
All my life I've struggled to desire a close relationship with a woman. Just when I think I might be interested in seeking that, I happen to be around a married couple who's yelling at each other or just saying hurtful things or there's just a lot of drama. I loathe that and would rather die than have to live with emotional ups and downs the rest of my life. My childhood was full of that between my grandparents and parents and my friends' parents... So much tension and yelling and hurtful...
JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took his first steps Sunday to express his gratitude to President Trump, unveiling, at a specially convened cabinet meeting, a plaque marking the spot where Israel’s newest town — Trump Heights — will sit.
The new community is located on the occupied Golan Heights, which — in a highly controversial move that upended decades of U.S. foreign policy — Trump recognized as being part of sovereign Israel last March.

Wheaton College (a conservative evangelical college) professors have penned what is believed to be the first college-level textbook outlining mainstream scientific theories on origins of life and how they fit within a biblical framework, something they say has been lacking in Christian higher education for decades.
“God created nature, He also gave Scripture...So theology is really designed to look at the data of Scripture, right? And science is designed to listen to the data of nature. Well, nature and scriptures shouldn't conflict because they’re both from God.”
Wheaton scholars pen first 'Origins' college textbook bridging the Bible to ‘mainline science’
Celebrities Call for Ban on Boiling Lobsters Because They Feel Pain, But Aborting Babies is Fine
In a twist of tragic irony, several British celebrities are supporting a new effort to protect lobsters from a painful death while unborn baby humans suffer excruciating abortion deaths in England and America daily.
The humane treatment of animals is important, but many celebrities ignore how pain-capable human babies also are being brutally killed in abortions.
The Daily Mail reports British comedian Bill Bailey and wildlife presenter Chris Packham put their support behind an effort to prohibit lobsters from being boiled or dismembered alive in the UK.
They joined the organization Crustacean Compassion in sending a letter to British...

I have a question about the gift on singleness. If someone with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength loathes the very idea of being without a spouse from the blackest and most heartfelt depths of their soul, will God force them to be single their entire life? Will God give that person the gift of singleness though they hate it with a venomous hatred that cannot be put into words that would do it justice in the English language? Would God force this upon someone even though it would mean psychologically torturing them and will leave them with bitterness and rage toward God that will cause them to be unable to follow him in any functional effective manner? Would God do this even though it would severely damage the relationship...
Here's a thread to discuss the LDS interest in Margaret Baker on the topic of Heavenly Mother.
I just ran across a woman by the name of Margaret Barker, who is a Methodist preacher and a OT, NT scholar, and has written many books and been awarded for her achievements. Read what told us on this youtube lecture:
This video is about her 400 page book on Heavenly Mother and her children
Here's a thread to discuss the interest in Margaret Baker on the topic of Heavenly Mother.
For you to dismiss her scholarship because she disagrees with you is cute too. As she says, she teaches you how it agrees with the bible, but I'm sure you will not listen.
I thought maybe a non-Mormon source and a fully accredited...
I will clarify a name I prefer to call my Lord whom most of you know as Jesus Christ. I call Him Yeshua and know Him as my Messiah. The reason for calling Him by His Hebrew name is because of the abuse and misuse that the English name Jesus Christ has received. It is like curse words out of many people’s mouths today and I want this not to happen in your mind when you read this thread.
I know that Yeshua is one the Hebrew pronounciations of His name and most likely what He was called His whole life. So please do not let it trip you up as you read Yeshua in the place of the English name Jesus Christ. That is one thing I do not want your mind to battle over.
