    Removed: inappropriate comment in a support post. It's okay to hold that position but not okay to express it in this context of someone asking for support

    [–] How can we seriously believe that all of the extremely serious warnings about falling away, persecution unto death, and mass, global destruction were about the temple falling over, which was so. incredibly. insignificant. tanhan27 1 points ago in Reformed

    I think that's a valid position.

    But I think if I look at history in the last 2000 years I see a lot of God's wrath being poured out. Maybe not in a literal Revelation 16 way, but I think in a Romans 1 way, Gods wrath is God allowing us to suffer the consequences of our sin(God allows wars, famine, diseases, climate change etc)

    [–] Amount of elders in the church? tanhan27 1 points ago in Reformed

    Maybe your standards are too high, are there really only 1 or two men in Your entire church that are biblically qualified? What's the problem with the other men, are they unfaithful to their wives or are alcoholics or what?

    [–] Where does our moral obligation end? - Christians and Social Media tanhan27 1 points ago in Reformed

    I think to say for instance that black people are more violent or that Asian people are incapable thinking as individuals(two things I heard Alex Jones say recently) is also lying and so should not be allowed.

    I don't think restricting hate speech intensifies emotions I think allowing it does. It was Hitler's speeches which spread the Nazi ideas. And there is a reason that kind of speech is now illegal in Germany, beco they never again want to go down that road.

    I think hateful and violent speech is not as difficult to define as you say. Yeah there are ways to use dog whistles to hide it (i.e. talking about "thugs" instead do using the N word, or talking about "globalists" instead of saying Jews) but I think dog whistles is better that open racism because at least it's still the social norm that we don't tolerate racism.

    [–] Sex before marriage with the one you are planning to marry? tanhan27 1 points ago in Reformed

    Haha well I would hope a couple would have a little bit of alone time before they get married. You need to time to discuss important things before making those sorts of plans

    God telling the angels to pour out his wrath on the kingdoms of this world. I don't see that as being contradictory to hope in God's redemption of creation. It reminds me of the seven plagues in Egypt, that was about redemption and liberation from bondage. Not about God [removed inappropriate comparison]

    That's liberal. You don't think a man needs the woman's father's permission to marry?

    Playing with tinfoil wrapped around the antenna to pick up the channel... Actually I still have to do this, but it's less fuzzy and just turns blue when the channel isn't coming in

    I had a couple of 19 years olds from Utah knock on my door the other day, I thought it was quite a coincidence that both of them had the same first name "Elder"

    You've convinced me. So the correct advice to OP is not to tell him to stop having sex but to tell him to hurry up and marry the girl, unless her father refuses

    [–] Sex before marriage with the one you are planning to marry? tanhan27 2 points ago in Reformed

    Doesn't it say that if the father refuses he still must pay the bride price?

    I think a lot of men don't want to be an elder because it's a lot of work. If you make all qualified men into elders you lighten the load.

    It's a sin when you have sex and don't consider it to be marriage.
