About Me
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 appears to me like Jesus was saying that the two commandments are pretty similar)
That's why if someone wanted my opinion 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 child's 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 guess that I need to do a better job at explaining things:

If you aim at nothing, then your probably going to hit it. It has become pretty clear to me that a number of females do not want to walk in the same direction that I am headed, but I assure you guys that there is no other direction for me to march! In the words of Simon Peter -Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.- (John 6:68

Allow me to back up, some girls go to church (some go every chance they get) and they have never heard some of the things that I say at church. So the assumption is that I am incorrect, but what is going on is that many 'church institutions' are either afraid to teach what GOD said in the Bible, or maby they just do not know what the Bible says because people are acting like they do not have any idea what the purpose of life is.

So:

Genesis 1:28
And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.”

Each of us is part of a human chain that goes back to Adam and Eve: As a single person there are certain things that you can not do (and there are certain things that married people can not do) But the point of marriage is to form a team, that team should have a plan as to how they are going to influence the world for CHRIST. Again I will say that I realize that many females on this website do not like the plan that I have to influence the world for CHRIST

I do not mind when people disagree with me, in fact I encourage new ideas to be formulated. What I do not like (nor do I respect) people that just decide not to follow my leadership and I know that they do not have any other plan! Some crafty individuals try to use scripture to explain why they should not follow me.

Its like a question that I asked a guy once, I said "if you could go back in time would you be involved in a plot to kill hitler like Dietrich Bonhoeffer was" and I thought the reply was very interesting, he said "I would only be involved in such a plot if a mare kind leader was waiting to take hitlers place, otherwise things could have gotten a whole lot worse"

As I have said many girls do not like the path that I am walking on (and thats someone elses choice) but dont act like you are certain that there is another path.
