    Circle hooks

    I use circle hooks in oklahoma for Blue Catfish. I like them. You don't really set the hook or you will pull it out of their mouth. I think sometimes I do miss a few because of them, but I also think I catch a few that I wouldn't have because they hook themselves, so it all evens out. They certainly don't come off once they have been hooked with the circle.

    Divorce by abuse.

    Abuse is not abandonment. That is simply something that people make up in there mind to justify adultery.

    Divorce by abuse.

    In 1 Corinthians 7:15 Paul says if an unbelieving spouse wants to depart then let them depart and the brother or sister is not under bondage in such cases. Most everyone agrees that not being under bondage would imply that the a believer would no longer have an obligation to live a life of celibacy but be free to remarry without it being adultery in such cases where they were abondeoned by a non believer.

    Happiness?

    Happiness by the world's standards "I just want to be happy" does not exist in the kingdom of God. By virtue of the statement itself, it implies selfishness and that the individual is somehow the center of some realm they have created in their mind that exists for their pleasure. When in reality we were created for Gods pleasure and this is his realm not ours and our life isn't really about us at all. We exist because God wills it so. That is not to say that being his children He certainly loves us and created the earth for us to enjoy and live in, but that is quite secondary to submitting to his will and his way, but by doing that one can truly find peace.

    Was I being unreasonable?

    Hey Bliss, the biblical view on marriage is very unpopular. You won't find many people that agree with it. Even here on a christian forum. Lots of people will quote the woman at the well and say you can have many husbands. But Jesus undid what Moses gave them remember. They were allowed to divorce because of the hardness of their hearts before the Holy Spirit came into the world to lead and guide us. Jesus took away all the petty reasons for divorce and said no more divorce unless someone is unfaithful. Paul added to it and said that if your abandoned by a non believer that your also not bound to your covenant. So your mom is the non believing spouse that left her first husband. How do we know this? Because the believing spouse that departs would remain unmarried or be restored to her husband. 1 Corinthians 7:10. Quite frankly it really doesn't matter if she gets a marriage license from whatever state she lives in, she is living in adultery. U.S. law does not trump Gods law. Just like God does not recognize a same sex marriage, regardless of whether or not someone has a peice of paper that says they are married.

    The Mark of the Beast

    No one really knows how these prophecies will be fulfilled. That just how prophecy works. Remember the Jews had hundreds of prophecies about the coming messiah, but they were so hung up on what they thought it would look like that they totally missed the fulfillmentnt of the prophecies. So everyone, my self included should probably be a little more open minded about the meaning of Daniel and Revelations.

    Can a Christian vote as a Democrat?

    Nobody said God wants you to be a republican, that's a bit off topic. What this thread is about is stating that a true follower of Christ, not just someone following a religious ideology would never vote for a democrat, knowing that no matter how "good" that individual democrat may be you are saying yes I belive in murdering unborn babies and yes I support same sex marriages (which by the way, is not even possible).

    Can a Christian vote as a Democrat?

    Yeah, I have heard of the churches that now say Homosexuality is okay. Believe what you wish.

    The Mark of the Beast

    You yourself have already openly admitted that this is no scripture that talks about this mysterious second coming that's not really a second coming because the actual second coming is later in time. Wow that hurts my head to try to unravel.... And you actually teach this?

    Can a Christian vote as a Democrat?

    Well to answer the question in the OP you have to define Christian a little better since it has clearly come to mean something very different than a follower of Christ. Can you be a born again believer filled with and lead by the Holy Spirit and vote Democrat? The answer to that question is a resounding "No". That's a hard response, but if you buy into the kingdom of God, you don't kill babies or legalize same sex marriage. I could go on....

    The Mark of the Beast

    Your right about no scripture talking about the "rapture" because there is just the second coming of Christ. It's why its called the second coming and not the third! Read Matthew 24.

    Divorce & Remarriage: A Position Paper

    Sure, Mat 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. 1Co 7:10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 1Co 7:11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

    Divorce & Remarriage: A Position Paper

    This is going to be an unpoplular statement. There is definitely a different standard for men than women on the topic of divorce and remarriage in the bible.
