    Deception to come, or is it here?

    Yes. It's here. In the OP :ROFL:

    Anyone here have a happy marriage after adultery?

    Of course I acknowledge I sin. That is a silly way to respond. Like I said, we are all called to virtue. Obviously, my own experience and lessons drawn from the hurt impair me from providing either good advice or advice most will respect. I'll recuse myself from the thread. I happen to agree...

    Anyone here have a happy marriage after adultery?

    Our culture is ultimately worse off because we have allowed excuses to cloud moral expectations. This lassitude has led to the kind of hurt you so despise. I'm not sorry for being the one person here to acknowledge this. There is no grace without a full understanding of and reverence for the law.

    Anyone here have a happy marriage after adultery?

    It is an excuse if the offending party's feeling isn't genuine regret over the wrong committed.

    ‘Let them fight’: Bennett slammed for pushing parents to vax-shame each other

    Netanyahu is probably petting a cat in some secluded bunker saying, "Yes! Yes...Carry on, Mr. Bennett..."

    Anyone here have a happy marriage after adultery?

    That may be so, but it's not a valid excuse. We are all called to virtue. Part of being virtuous is doing one's best to mitigate the mess that is life instead of continuing the cycle of hurt and betrayal. I know I sound callous, but it's because I have been similarly hurt before and have heard...

    Speak for yourself. I would have been a magistrate and there would have been no trannies.

    Anyone here have a happy marriage after adultery?

    Also, I am sick and tired of people (particularly women) citing their TERRIBLE and AWFUL past as a reason to torch their relationships. Everyone over 25 has "a past." Grow up.

    Anyone here have a happy marriage after adultery?

    What a terrible situation. I'm very sorry to hear it. If both of you have faith in God's regenerative power, you will be okay. Also, take your so-called friend to the Magistrate in the Shire in which he dwells. If the judge determines he is guilty after a quick trial, the cares of the world...

    ku klux klan

    That is a decent assessment of their second incarnation. It's difficult to classify the KKK as historically Right Wing when it was supported or joined by the likes of Woodrow Wilson and Robert C. Byrd. So yes, they served a similar purpose to Antifa without a direct lineage.

    ku klux klan

    1. They were a Southern resistance group fighting reconstruction and racial integration. They died out and came back in a second and third incarnation. The early 20th century incarnation is the best-known today. The early 21st century incarnation is mostly drunks and federal agents (sometimes...

    how do texts in KJV compare to other translations that were done before it?

    It is another refinement of the Bible in English. It is probably the most culturally influential translation and certainly the prettiest.

    Men can you tell if another man is good-looking?

    I always thought it was easy.

    “Covenant Marriage” trend

    It's pretty simple. Marriage is a temporal social institution. If you're single on earth, you're not somehow considered married in Heaven. That would be an odd sort of legalism. Us Christians can be so silly.

    Why Are Women Expected to be the Gatekeepers of Virginity?

    Proof positive that women think of things more relationally than men do. The world is too liberal. Even when he says nonsense, it's at least a kind of nonsense that gives things ultimate balance. He doesn't fill some sort of gravitational need of mine.

    Why Are Women Expected to be the Gatekeepers of Virginity?

    Women assume more risk with sexual activity on multiple levels. So they were naturally more buttoned-up/guarded for eons. If you wanted to prevent out-of-wedlock births, the easiest and shortest route would be to teach women sexual virtue. They were already more likely to practice it than men...

    "The 3-Date Rule." How Do You Know When You Know That You Know?

    Never heard of that rule before. Sounds pretty dumb.

    Dating a non believer and it’s challenges

    I don't recommend it, but I understand why people are tempted these days. If you are disappointed and hurt enough times, you go for something different.
