This is hilarious......HAHAHA
That's what he told the telemarketer.. don't really see why it's funny, because what if she has a problem with that specific sin? What if she took his suggestion? THAT'S what I meant by "causing another to stumble"..

I just told an intrusive telemarketer to go make love to herself. Did I just lose my salvation or is it that I’ve never had salvation because I lack love for intrusive telemarketers? Do tell.
Uh...momentary blackout? Loss of memory? Identity?

Occasionally hits us all.

DC,
the point was, 'to beware of 'good sounding words', because this was the 'original 'deception'...
so much that is masked as 'righteousness' is 'rooted' in corruption' -
like it is written:
'If the roots are corrupt, so is the fruit'.

Point we’ll taken. That said however, if that’s the case she shouldn’t bother people with unwarranted phone calls.

100% agree.......we see that a lot on this site.........the devil is very, very sly.......and those he uses can make it look very good and righteous, but it only takes ONE word to make it false or a lie.....

funny thing....The churches I investigated in AU...all peddled fun, games, people walking around with thongs (flip flops) on, people talking on the phone, kids playing with toys in the aisle (all during the service) and zero respect for the word of God.....oh and a 10 minute message out of context.....
funny thing............
I see that going on here in the U.S as well...................

As irritating as it is, that is part of her job, to bother us.. lol

But whether or not she has a problem with her playing with herself, has no bearing on what her job is.

100% agree.........more like entertainment centers as opposed to a church or churches......

I always say...if you want to be entertained go buy a movie ticket.......100% believe the worship of God is the preaching of the word of God.....and I only seen ONE song sung in the N.T.....after the Lord's Supper.......

Well since it's going there.............
(and I KNOW this Q is going to bring out the bad in some people but I'm going there..........)
What about all the electronic "bibles" being used? I mean DEVICES (tablets, phones etc) because some didn't bring (do they even own?) an actual bible along?
Personally I think it is very ignorant and disrespectful............
(can of worms is open......)
