    @stand to reason, talking nonsense, absolutely pobycock may not use the Bible but still using your mythical god as the reason, tell me I've died 3 times and last time for 1 hour 20 mins and there was nothing as same as before you were born, seems to me religion uses FEAR the fear of torture the fear of not being special, the fear of death in order to control and get them to join the club, most people don't realise the origins of the Bible and the fact it isn't complete thanks to the council of narcia, and was written by 145 different authors and was never meant to be a book just alot if different stories written by lots of people, also Christianity is a young religion so compared to Hinduism it's a child, 11.000 years for Hindu so why isn't their gods the true god's why is your god the one true God? What happens if your backing the wrong horse? ask yourself this in truth, what happens if I'm wrong. You claim to seek the truth but their is no truth in the bible, me I have no soul I don't believe in any god's and I'm kind to my fellow man because it's the right thing in my eyes and in the society I'm living in, I don't do it out of fear or out of promise of a reward eg a place in heavan or in hell regarding fear. You ignore the facts when it comes to religion, but not for anything else in life, at it seems every preacher says god is this and god is that it seems that the only thing that can say what he is is the being itself, instead you say he's this and that, same as the next person, you say he is a loving God well if he was real he is pure evil without morals, manipulate the masses and force them to love and worship him sounds like a dictator, I've studied a number of religions including the Norse myths, and it shows that a fundamental lack of understanding,of the world, and you play on the fact people need something like Satan to blame the bad things on when according to the texts he is the only one who told the truth in the garden, god lied and continued to lie and then play with people's emotions and life's and when they didn't fall in line caused mass deaths of babies women and men,. I guess I. The next few generations religion will fizzle out, and the numbers show this already I live in the UK and it's rapidly dissapearing, if God was true being then he would have been able to write a book understood by all, and be able to atleast show himself, and the syntax of your caller was not that of a 13 year old bed if people did the digging you would find FAKE callers, which fraud is one of the no no in your holy book.

    Gog is Satan. Gog is known as the Prince of Rosh, according to Ezekiel 38. Rosh is the old name for the Ukraine, and before that Khazaria. Magog is the country in that area, which has supplied every single Prime Minister of modern-day Israel [except Netanyahu, who is from next-door Poland]. The Pharisees, also known presently as the Ashkenazi, are destroying God's House of Israel in Palestine, namely the Palestinians. This is all borne out by Jesus in Matthew, and in the Book of Ezra, who say that the Levites ''mingled their seed'' with the idolaters of Babylon. Jesus correctly identified them in His time as the ''Seed of Satan'', who delivered them a ''deadly wound'' in 70 AD at the destruction of Jerusalem, but who have survived to this day calling themselves Jews but not Semites, for they are Eurasian. Read Ezekiel 38 and 39 to see what God is planning for them. The Christians of Palestine, Lebanon and Syria are God's Israel who are under attack, and have been, by Magog, Persia and Egypt, who are all working together to eliminate Christians. The Evangelical Churches have been deceived into supporting Gog and Magog. -[Thanks to Steven Denoon of ''Israeli News Live'' for this MASSIVE revelation.]

    I appreciate presentations that outline the truth of biblical doctrine and principles from arguments based on natural reason, rather than just "because the Bible says so." In my opinion, far too many Christians are unable to articulate the the necessity of a biblical worldview and God's commandments from a rational, rather than purely religious, standpoint. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with citing the authority of our claims in the revelation on Scripture, biblical revelation and natural reason (including science) will ultimately dovetail, as our faith is not based on irrationality, blindness, or stupidity, but on ultimate reality itself, which can only find its meaning in the Creator.

    Before a Christian can label sex as "premarital", or "fornication", that Christian MUST define what constitutes as a **biblical** marriage.
    if the Christian thinks that it is Government that establishes a marriage: that person denies Scripture, that claims Elohim establishes marriage.

    If Christian says Elohim establishes a marriage (which needs not recognition from Government, nor a "license");
    said Christian just rejected the need for government to be involved in our [emotional] affairs.

    Soooooooooo many pastors and churchgoers always dance around this defining point, to not reject the authority of Caesar (in our domestic affairs).

    How to win a sword fight "without a sword."

    Is God's word not authoritative? Is there a greater authority than it?

    Often people will say, don't have extra-marital sex as it leads to STIs or unwanted pregnancy…..and while, yes, that will prevent the physical risks (ie avoiding disease or conceiving an unwanted child) they can be argued against in modern society by saying – "just use protection" or "just be careful who you chose to sleep with". But for Christians, there is a deeper reason which is exactly as you explain in your video.

    Sex communicates something which words can not, of ultimate trust, ultimate vulnerability, ultimate intimacy and ultimate exclusivity between two people. However, as we all know, it is very possible to have sex with absolutely no intention of honouring the above reasons…..solely for self satisfaction….especially for us men….but as you say…..no matter if the reasons are solely self-centred and for satisfying ones own pleasure…..the physical act itself communicates something very different…….so the very act of sex therefore becomes a lie.

    Some may say….."Oh I just have sex for the physical pleasure, just like eating a burger or drinking a favourite drink"…however, those people are degrading something created as sacred and will never enjoy the benefits of and fullness of what sex truly means within the covenant of total commitment and exclusivity that marriage provides.

    Another key reason is that sex clouds judgement. I know people that have wasted years of their life staying with someone who is actually not at all compatible with them or who treats them terribly, but the intense feelings that sex creates, makes them think that they are in love and prevents them from seeing the truth of the situation…. sad…
