About Me
Matthew 22:36-40
36 �Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?� 37 Jesus replied: ��Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.� 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: �Love your neighbor as yourself.� 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.�

1 John 4:7-8
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

1 Corinthians 7:17
(The Message)

17And don't be wishing you were someplace else or with someone else. Where you are right now is God's place for you. Live and obey and love and believe right there. God, not your marital status, defines your life. Don't think I'm being harder on you than on the others. I give this same counsel in all the churches.
(I pray that GOD helps me!)



Matthew 22:36-40
36 �Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?�
37 Jesus replied: ��Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.� 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: �Love your neighbor as yourself.� 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.�
(The Pharisee asked JESUS one question, and so JESUS answered the one question, and then another question and then a comment...have you ever wondered why? Maby it has something to do with the phrase "the second is like it" It apears to me like Jesus was saying that the two comandments are pretty similar)
Thats why if someone wanted my oppinion on how to get closer to JESUS my answer is learn how to show love to people!
I have been thinking about what I would like to have, and I would like to find a woman that pursues GOD in such a way that it puts my walk with CHRIST look like childs play.


"The passionate care enough to rock the boat"

Psalms 91 is a good passage to remember :applause:

Ecclesiastes 7:29 This only have I found:
" God created mankind upright,
but they have gone in search of many schemes.�

Jesus is my best friend! I have met alot of nice people and we cannot walk together because they think their life is their own :ROFL: when I became a bondservant of Christ, I gave Him my life. Unfortunatly my life keeps wanting me to be the ruler, but with Gods help I will be able to stop focusing on me and start focusing on Christ. (I can use prayer!)

I have seen some pretty girls and they turned real ugly when I seen the junk coming out of there mouths. I have also been around girls that were not so pretty, become gorgeous when I saw the way that they treated people. The lesson is this: just because your not a 10 does not mean that you can't clean up to look decent...but the bible tells me that "charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting..." (Proverbs 31:30) So don't spend all your time fixing your hair or putting on your makeup. If you want to be a show stopper, work on your relationship with GOD "...but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised" (Proverbs 31:30) When writing this section I tried to point to the fact that the bible tells us that the way that we treat other people is almost as important as the way that we speak to GOD. So if your wanting to have an incredible relationship with CHRIST, I want you to look in the bible and figure out how to treat people (its not as easy as you might think, sometimes when we think that we are helping people, we are actually doing that person a disservice.)

There are people on here that are thinking about marrige and it has been sugested that "a courting couple should communicate at least 1,000 hours before engagement" That means spending some sort of quality time with them (the point is to get to know each other) Thats 3 hours of quality time per day for nearly a year. I am just saying that getting to know each other is a very good idea! With that said, I know a couple that has been married for 68 years and they got married after knowing each after for two months. So as far as I know the best way to build a strong marriage is to always strive to treat your spouse like there needs are more important than your needs (the idea for that came from Philippians 2:3)

Proverbs 3:5-6
5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

I think it is such a relief to know that GOD will allow me to rely on HIS pool of understanding!

Not everyone that claims to be a Christian is going to heaven. Only the people that have a daily walk with CHRIST are Christians....this might sound selfish but some of you guys need to start living right (please read Galatians 5:19-23)

I have talked to some girls on here, and it seems that guys want them to believe that it is normal for girls to have sex before marrige, I am strongly against that kind of mindset.
I guess my feeling could come from the fact that I want to spare people heart ache, maby its because I hate lies or the fact that I can be jealous...but I think its because the bible refers to that kind of behavior as sexual immorality.

It might be easy to think that people "cross the line" when they actualy have sexual intercourse, but there are other activities that people have no business engaging in outside of the bonds of marrige! My challenge to every person reading this is to consider where they define "the line" Please do not think that it is common knowledge and most people have basicly the same definition of sexual immorality. If you do not know specificly what you stand for, it might suprise you what you will fall for!

Recently I heard some good advice concerning marrige "have a mission statment for your marrige" Sounds good to me! Just because two people get marrie that does not mean that they think the same way about everything, so its a good idea for both people to agree upon the goals that they both have, and talk about how each person looks at money. Because if one person is a spender and the other person is a saver..."I wonder if that will cause a conflict" :bouncy:

There was a study that followed two different married couples. The first couple got married because they were "in love", the second couple were married because the marriage was arranged. The first couple was most "happy" at first, but the happiness level of the second couple soon became greater than that of the first. So when looking for a mate please ask yourself "do you really want to get married to a one hit wonder" (like the hare) because there is a study that says that "slow and steady wins the race" (like the tortoise). Besides GOD did not institute marriage to make us happy, HE instituted marriage to make us holy!

Ken Ham wrote the following article, and he does a good job explaining things although the article is long. But the article explains what GOD meant when HE said "Be fruitful" That is why we need to find a godly mate! http://www.icr.org/article/where-are-all-godly (no space) -offspring/

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
Ecclesiastes 12:13
First Date
I was thinking about that question "what would you do for a first date" and most people describe what they would like to do on a first date. But I think we need to stop and think about some things. I imagine that I will step on a few toes with this next story...but I think that it illustrates a point. (I realize that some girls are not good matches for every guy, but its neat how 1 girl may not be right for me...but she is a good match for another guy) anyway this girl that I know I would say on a scale of 1-10 she was maybe a 5, and I heard her describing the guy that she was looking for and it sounded like the guy was a 14! What I am trying to say is sure the 5 wanted to be with a 14 but what was the likelihood of finding a 14 that wanted to be with that 5. What I want people to think about is "what improvements do you feel that you need to make in your own life so that those 14 will want to date you" (because the 5 can become the 14 by learning a desirable skill set) maybe a desirable skill set is to learn how to cook (you may not be a gourmet chef, but its nice to know how to make toast)
Maybe its cleaning or sewing (the neat thing is GOD knows what your potential mate is attracted to so whatever you enjoy doing learn how to become the best that you can be...and you will change from a 5 to a 6 to a 7 and then to an 8)

Over the past few years I have been trying to "improve on the skill sets" that I have (perhaps that is what JESUS was speaking about when HE told the parable of the talents Matthew 25:14-30 {of course the only implication is not about dating})

Although the 50% divorce rate statistic might be a little over simplified, a more important issue needs to be discussed. Living happily ever after is not the goal! The goal is for a man and woman to come together and paint a picture of CHRIST with there lifestyle. The picture that the two of them paint will be so vivid that the model of godly living will be etched into the minds of everyone that encounters the couple. Marriage was designed by GOD with the purpose in mind that children (natural, adopted, or people that come into contact with the couple) will see the godly lifestyle that the couple lives, and the picture will "rub" off onto the children. Most people view evangelism as "how many people can I train to live more like CHRIST". But what if I told you that marriage was an evangelistic tool? That is not just my opinion...although GOD said it better than me!
Malachi 2:15 Modern English Version (MEV)
15 Did He not make them one, having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously.

It seems that we need to "rethink" how we approach marriage because we are looking for a partner that will help us mentor people .

Sometimes, we face situations and we do not know what to do. It was in one of these situations that I asked a guy for some advice and he told me that he did not know the exact answer to give me, but then he shared some words with me that helped me determine what to do. He said "whatever you determine to do will shape who you are going to become."
That was great but I still did not know what to do! But I was pretty certain who I did not want to become.
Circumstances are like walking the dog,"dont let them control you or determin where you will go".

Sure I want a wife, but I plan on marring my best friend!

JESUS was the greatest preacher that ever walked this earth and we need to learn from HIM! What was HIS method of changing the world? The answer is that HE invested large amounts of time into 12 men. JESUS shared the gospel with many people but HE focused on 12 men. GOD wants us to partner with HIM and change the world. Fortunately, GOD sends out many husband and wife teams to do this.

If GOD gives me 7 children, and my wife and I teach our children to follow CHRIST. And those kids grow up and teach there kids to follow CHRIST. At some point in my life, GOD might allow me to see a family group of 50-100 god fearing men and women that are not satisfied with the status quo.

I imagine that a lot of people are on this website with the hopes that they will "fall in love". People fall into holes in the ground, or they fall out of there chair. But love is not something that you fall into, love is a commitment. Its a choice, you choose to love someone. You fall into a thing called lust, and people often confuse love with lust. That's why I have this weird thought that says people should probably not get married if they think that they are "in love" When people meet a special someone they are blind to see certain things. This type of blindness might last up to 3-4 years. And so I think that it is not a good idea to expect to "fall in love and get married" because one day your going to wake up and realize that the person that you married is a dud. (I am not trying to call people names)

I like to think about what a former church leader that I had said, "when I first met my wife I did not think that she was super pretty, and I was not attracted to her personality...in fact I thought that she was kind of rude"

I think that people are like helium filled balloons. They might look good now but people tend to get all saggy, and the balloon does not even float as high as it used to! That's when some people start thinking about what a helpmate should be like.

(let me reassure some people that if you are really valuable to that other person, even though you might look like an old balloon, you will still look beautiful to that person/people)

Love is a choice, it is not something that you fall into by accident.
