I don't have anything to say about the above topic at the moment other than what I stated. The Bible is there, and I'm here. But how do you go about figuring out which is the right thing?
I smell something like "I follow Paul. I follow Apollos." in some of the Calvin VS Aminian discussions.
I know people who have seemingly valid points on both sides. I don't want to accept what I've grown up with JUST because it's what I grew up with. I want to find out what the Bible says.
Ok, so I'm done talking about that for now. Thoughts welcome.
I joined a site called Paper Back Swap. It looks really intesting! It's a site where, without paying a fee, you can list book you have that you're willing to send to someone. In return, for each book you send out (you pay shipping) you can choose a book to be sent to you (they pay shipping).
I read up recently at the Homeschool Alumni Forum about "young marriage." The age at which people are getting married at (according to stats cited in the thread) is getting older. That being said, if you marry older you tend to have less children. Are we as Christians putting off marriage for the wrong reasons? Are men neglecting their duty to ask women to marry them, seeing as women (in my opinion) shouldn't ask the men? Are Christians supposed to not marry because you don't fall in love with someone "suitable"? Is falling in love a good reason to get married? Should falling in love be the only reason to marry? What is a good reason to get married? What constitutes a "suitable" person?
There are a lot of questions right there. I'd like to just open this up to whatever comments people have on any of those questions. (I'm always open to comments!)
