Christforums

.... an orthodox Protestant forum whose members espouse the Apostolic doctrines in the Biblical theologies set forth by Augustine, Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin and John Knox etc. We do not "argue" with nor do we solicit the membership of people who espouse secular or cultic ideologies. We believe that our conversations are to be faith building and posts that advance heretical or apostate thinking will be immediately deleted and the poster permanently banned from the forum. This is a Christian community for people to explore the traditional theologies of Classical Protestantism. Those who would challenge the peace and harmony that we enjoy here as fellow believers are directed to another forum.

Enjoy your fellowship

In order to understand the importance of Christian fellowship, we must first understand what Christian fellowship is and what it isn’t. The Greek words translated “fellowship” in the New Testament mean essentially a partnership to the mutual benefit of those involved. Christian fellowship, then, is the mutually beneficial relationship between Christians, who can’t have the identical relationship with those outside the faith. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity is the basis of fellowship. This relationship is described by Jesus in His high-priestly prayer for His followers in John 17:23. The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces Christ centeredness in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another's faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.

According to my pastor, 1 in 2 male church attenders habitually watch porn so you are not alone. Some churches have support groups, mine does for example.

Lust comes in many forms.Some innocent and some not so. Your first priority in your marrage is speaking to your wife about this.

 

Have you talked with you wife about this. Maybe she can indulge you.

Does that change the term from lust to not being satisfied by your husband?

I'm kind of surprised cause women don't usually have that problem. Men , yes. But not especially women.

Well, that was a sexist statement. True mind you, but still sexist. *giggles softly*

Everyone's a work in progress. Stay in prayer and let God lead you away from that sinmful nature.

I can't really give much advice since there's not much that I know about you, you're husband, and all that stuff. But I will say to stay away from things that bring out those thoughts if you can. Aslo, make some time with your husband. Not to sound perverted, but go on a camping trip and go wild......pitching his tent.

Stay away from pornography and similar magazine articles that target young ladies such as yourself. They have a tendency to attract demonic darts (lustful thoughts) the more you pursue them. Ephesians 6:16: "Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked." Fiery darts - demonic darts: same thing. :RpS_thumbup:

Support groups are wonderful.

The way I feel about it, is that we all are potentially the tool God sends as an answer the prayers of others.

What are you taking meds For? This is an international forum so posters are from all over the place. PMing is common. What is your definition of 'lust'.

I've gotten to know people from England / Netherlands. It can be interesting to learn about another culture. Why do you feel it's sinful?

Are your meds for a bi-polar situation for instance? A depression situation?

 

Why do you feel you want to be married to him? How about friendship? On-line -- meaning an on-line dating site? Or maybe a Forum like this?

Hi sue

 

I tried to pm you but can't figure it out.

whenever the Dr put me on valium and took me off, I've not been the same since. I'm onklonopin now which I very helpful. Anytime I get on Twitter or fb or the internet I'm drawn to men and that's just not me. My family refuses to let me change doctors even though she messed up. I just obsess and wake up with anxiety. She suppose to be the best around. She says go to counseling but talking about it makes me really anxious and I don't want to up my medicine. I wake at 4 as it us now

Just focus all your attention on your husband.

 

 

The new and different is always appealing - at least initially. So always keep the spark there and fan the flames of passion constantly with your hubby.

Sounds like she's on meds that are messing her up.
