La Moldavia e' piena di belle donne,ma non mi pare che,al di fuori di un ristretto numero c he praticano la prostituzione,si possa parlare di un paese di puttane. Certo,io che sono italiano,devo riscontrare un diverso approccio co n i problemi del sesso.Non bisogna pero' dimenticare che,da quando esiste il mondo,esiste questa forma di commercio,che attraverso i secoli era mascherata da necessita' reali.

Mark 10:5-6 It was because your hearts were hard that Moses wrote this law, Jesus replied. But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? DO NOT BE DECEIVED; Neither the sexual immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. Matthew 4:17 From that time began to preach, "Repent for the kingdom of heaven is near." 1 Corinthians 6:11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

The bible wasn't written by a pagan king, but was written by Pagans.

it is the reading, meditating on and application of gods word in our lives that provides the opportunity for finding purpose, truth and salvation. Not merely reading it. The history of the bible shows it is the most printed book in the last 600 years but not the most widely read, sadly. Religious dogma has replaced truth of gods word, ritual and tradition. So obtain a good translation, read and seek to understand by letting the bible explain itself. Review key things because you will begin to understand who we are, why we need help and the consequences of not reaching out for that help now. Read, listen to gods word, obey and apply his principles then you will be blessed

I wonder, if we can see signs of the Apocalypse coming, not only in social turmoil but in the natural world's decadence, Why is the church still encouraging women to have children? If we see millions of children without homes, How can it be good to encourage people to reproduce instead of adopting?

If she is repulsed, there is no love. I guarantee that.

Ask the priest
Confession of sins

Why did they choose a civil wedding ceremony and ignore the religious one?

Question:

We had a situation in our church that brought about a lot of “discussion” because we could not decide if it were a sin to do this or not. I would love to know your opinion on this subject. A young lady who was a member of our church married a young man who was a new believer. He had already entered into the New Covenant but had yet to be baptized. They went and registered their marriage with the state yet they did not let the church know what they had done. The members of the church found out about their marriage about a month and a half later. There are a lot more little details that go along with this situation but in general, I would love to know what you think about this situation.

I am very sad to hear of such an act. It is hard to imagine that two children of God would act like this. If she is a believer and member of the local church and he is member as well then how could they both behave in such a manner? My first question is, “did this young man “repent” so that he would be allowed to marry her or did he do it with all of his heart because he wants to serve God?”. I hope that I am wrong.

I believe that the church leaders have already done this but if they have not, then they need to go to this couple and talk to them, asking what they did and why they did it. The leaders need to find out what their motivation was in doing what they did the way that they did it? One of the reasons is clear; they did not want to wait for the young man to get baptized before getting married. His baptism would not have been or should not have been far off it he were living a life of obedience to God as proof that he has been born again. The fact that they were in a hurry to marry before his baptism makes me wonder if there were there some hidden sins that could have surfaced before he would have had a chance to be baptized, postponing the wedding.

True children of God do not act the way that these two did, especially in view of marriage because true children of God know that God instituted marriage and what He teaches about marriage in the Scriptures. How can you avoid a church wedding (religious wedding) when that is the official wedding covenant before the Lord?

After the leaders of the church have a discussion with the couple and find out the reasons why they acted as they did, then the leaders along with the rest of the church must decide what the consequences of such actions should be.
