Addendum To Today's Post

Well, I had a problem. After today’s blog, I began to receive comments that I wasn’t comfortable with. I decided not to post them. And then an astute blogger quoted my own words back to me.

If we refuse to discuss the sin, how can point people toward the cross.

Um, yeah. Point taken.

So, while I am still not entirely comfortable posting some of the comments on this blog post, I have done so. If you wish to engage in discussion, all I ask is that you be respectful of one another and any comments that I still see as potentially harmful, hurtful and inflammatory, regardless of the nature, will be removed.

    . . . be careful little eyes what you see . . . .
    . . . be careful little ears what you hear . . .
    These lines from a childrens song come from the Bible – the Book of Books.
    They tell us to guard our hearts and to think on these things:
    Philippians 4:8
    New International Version (NIV)
    8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
    I agree with Cathy in the aspect the we are to “raise the bar” as Christians and
    1 Corinthians 8:9-13
    New International Version (NIV)
    9 Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak. 10 For if someone with a weak conscience sees you, with all your knowledge, eating in an idol’s temple, won’t that person be emboldened to eat what is sacrificed to idols? 11 So this weak brother or sister, for whom Christ died, is destroyed by your knowledge. 12 When you sin against them in this way and wound their weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 13 Therefore, if what I eat causes my brother or sister to fall into sin, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause them to fall.
    Christ calls us to be like him and to not conform to the world.
    I also agree with Cathy that what a Christian couple does behind closed doors is between them and God who knows and sees all.
    As for Christian fiction, yes , sex is part of being human but there is no need for steamy details. We are all fallen sinners saved only by the grace of God and the sacrifice of Christ who shed His blood for all of us.
    He calls us to be like Him.
    Is reading 50 Shades of Gray honoring to Him?
    Do you want your money to support the author of such writing?
    The heart is deceitful and the lies of Satan are tempting.
