Hi there P31Woman; it's been busy this evening, right? though quietened down on the forums now. FYI, did you see the thread about the odd report about Turkish Airlines banning red lipstick? :chin Kind of strange... http://www.christianforums.net/showthread.php?t=52019
Hi P31Woman; I agree with your comments on Scripture, from a few minutes ago. Also, with what you said about ear piercing! (Wasn't entirely sure what you meant about being too chicken for a tattoo! but anyway I replied to your good comments about Romans 14 also.) Blessings.
Hi there; some great thoughts about historical-grammatical interpretation! It's not what's between the line, so often, it's what's on the line! Mark Twain said it wasn't the bits of the Bible that he didn't understand that troubled him; it was the bits that he did understand! Knowing what is really meant isn't often the problem.
BTW, I added a post to an interesting post by mygraine; not sure if this is an area you have expertise or views on: http://www.christianforums.net/showthread.php?t=43748&p=754100&viewfull=1#post754100
There are a couple of churches in the area that I'd be interested in checking out. The difficulty is that at this time, while I'm an adult legally, I still live with my mom and she's not too keen about all this. Plus we only have one vehicle right now, so on Sunday morning I don't have much choice.
I can view sermons online for now, I guess. There is this Bible study I attend, too, and I love going there.
