Even if someone doesn't conduct themselves respectably, God still calls us to treat them with respect and dignity. Treat them the way God would have you treat them.

Why is it directed at women being "ladies" and "tramps," then, if you mean people in general? :noway:

Well, because, we as men are obligated to treat women with respect and dignity. We've gotten away from chivalry and such to the point where we're not supposed to open the door for women because they "don't need some man." That's not true! You can't have woman without man and you certainly can't have man without woman! We need each other to survive in this world and God made it that way for a reason.

I mean men and women may need each other in general, but that doesn't mean you need to hold the door for a girl who's 50 feet away.

(source for this example: I go to a Christian university. Awkward door holders are a recurring problem.)

Chivalry may as well be chauvanism in NYC. You've got it good, bro.

Nope, they can check me on Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit, Gab, and Drudge.com, though, so their options aren't totally closed. Oh, and I and a few friends have a Change.org page, "Conservative Action".

Or Change.org for that matter?

Search "Techlamacus" for writers on Drudge.com, and search for "Conservative Action" on Change.org. My Tumblr blog is American Opinions.

You didn't answer my third question. ;)

Unless, that is, you're saying you'd like to improve your diet. :p

Well as far as the third question goes I'd like to be a more compassionate and caring human being and utilize all of my opportunities to put others first, even when it costs.

Is faith in Jesus more of a religion or a relationship? :-k Could you please give your thoughts?

Wow... That's a very good question.

My faith is very important to me. I always try to grow and expand my understanding of God's word, and to clean up every area of my life when I know there's some debris there. I am not a perfect person, OBVIOUSLY, but that is not an excuse for me to slack off and stop reaching for that ultimate end goal.

I make a point of making my relationship with Jesus just that--- a relationship. Arguably, yes, going to church is very organized and such because I do so every week, even when I'm out in rural desert communities. Seeing the wide diversity of how intensely people value their faith has inspired me to cast myself in, expanding my relationship with God in ways I never thought possible.

I know Presbetyrians, Catholics, Baptists, Charismatics, etc., etc., etc. But in the end, I feel as though it is empty religion to divide fellow Christians into groups. While I don't believe in praying to dead people, or that not being baptized sends you to Hell (yes, it's God's will for you to do that--- the thief on the cross was hung up at the moment), I don't think a whole lot of that is totally consequential. Yes, idolatry is a sin. Of course! And if you're practicing that you need to stop. Drinking is a sin. Et cetera.

But the question Jesus will ask us when we come before Him is, "Who do you say that I am?"

The only answer is, "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God."

In that moment, that's all that will matter.

What is your take on Matthew 25 as it relates to the final question?

Drinking is a sin?

Could one answer the question you are the Christ, the Son of the Living God and believe that Christ was not fully God and fully man or that Christ is a created being?

-It's simple, be ready for His return or risk dire consequences!

-Indeed.

-By my interpretation of the Bible, no way!
