Re: My Friends Tigger & Pooh

LOL! I've noticed lots of new icons. Talking about a bear, maybe :bear: would be more appropriate in this thread. :lol:

Re: My Friends Tigger & Pooh

I actually assumed you were a teenager. ;) You sound like many of my students have in the past. Thanks for the apology. I'm glad you're learning, and I know that learning to admit wrong is something that many people never learn, no matter how long they've been a "Christian". I could tell by your zea...

Re: Funerals & Weddings

(How annoying! I made my post and then lost it. Grrr!!! Let's try this again!) The purpose of a wedding is to join two people in front of friends and family. The purpose of the Lord's money is to spread the Gospel to a lost & dying world. Sure, there is reference made to God's plan for marriage and ...

Re: Woman teaching high school age boys?

I agree with the previous comments. Timothy was taught by women, but when he bacame a man, he was under the wing of Paul. There are some things that a woman simply can't teach because she's never done it. Public preaching is one of them. There are a great many things I'll have to teach my two boys b...

If I were you, I would keep your son away from Disney! I assume you don't have any children? I won't be keeping him away from Disney by any means. In fact, my husband and I will be at Disney World again next week (yes, 30-somethings still have a childhood. We go every few years. :wink: ). I'll just...

I also agree. I'm one of those people who never questioned it because that's the way "it's always been." When I moved to Texas, I heard a sermon by Jim Everett discussing the points you've already discussed and realized just how erroneous my thinking was. It makes me wonder if there are other areas ...

I agree with your thoughts. We've become so accustomed to hearing things like this (and much worse) on so-called "wholesome" family shows, that we often ignore it. I'm guilty of saying silly things like those myself without considering the real meaning. My son (almost 2 years old) is absolutely in l...
