Re: Sex with the ex

@LBD I think we need to read scripture in context. - I agree. 1 Corinthians 7 speaks of a different situation. What seems to have been happening in Corinth...(so you know that to be the case?) ... (it's possible that there was also some confusion as to whether a marriage contracted between pagans w...

Re: Sex with the ex

If the couple is divorced, then they've made a deliberate decision to end their marriage. It seems to me that such a decision should be permanent, and I would question whether it is appropriate to subsequently rekindle the relationship. I could not disagree with this more. Scripture would disagree ...

Re: The "Buy-in Cost"

We do things that we value or give us benefit. Serving another person generates value and benefit - Jesus said so. In business, we always look at a decision based on ‘opportunity cost’ which means that the costs and benefits of every option available must be considered and weighed against the other...

Re: Hearing attraction/sexual struggles

Rahab - she was prostitute and liar - yet she is counted as faithful and in the lineage of Christ. What if she had held the edict of absolute truth? I believe God would have worked another way to protect the spies. Pretty much all the heroes of the Bible did things that God says aren’t right. They ...

Re: 02/24/2021 - Who has the better bedside manner?

Me, no doubt. My DW doesn’t do empathy well at all. Nor does she take on a nurse persona if I’m down (like now), but maybe she’s softening a little with age- she did make and bring me a cup of soup last night. She usually has to be prompted into acts of service. I, on the other hand, actively seek t...

Hearing attraction/sexual struggles

I struggled with porn for many years. My wife knows this. We had a “D-day” about 15 years ago. She also knew/knows there would be future struggles. She trusts me to handle those. She has specifically said she has no desire or need to hear about every one of them. So I give her that. When something c...

Re: 02/17/2021 - Kids and Sex Life?

I don’t know what your “### “ was supposed to be, but I have injected the word “sponges” there often. Mimics could also be used.
