The title of this column could not have said it any better. Marriage is the foundation stone of human society and of the family. If marriage- one-man and one-woman for LIFE- crumbles, human society crumbles Those who disbelieve that statement are the SAME people who disbelieve and disobey God's word and don't believe in absolute truth. They look for every way imaginable to rationalize and justify (in their own eyes) their sin, their rebellion, and their disobedience to God.

Nice try, but wrong KrankyMike. We are not living in 1st century Greek society. We are living in 21st century America, and sex outside of legal matrimony is called fornication. Those who do not have enough respect for man's law, Gods' law, or even for their partner to make the legal commitment of saying "I do" and making that person their legal SPOUSE (in the eyes of BOTH God and man) are a FORNICATOR. You ask the disingenuous question: "Is legal compulsion the only standard of commitment?" Nobody is COMPLELLING anyone to get married...just like nobody is COMPELLING anyone to commit fornication or 'shack up' and go thru the pretence of calling it a 'marriage' (after 7 years, in most jurisdictions, the law will step in and legall call the relationship a "common law marriage"). I question your definition of Romans. Looks like you are engaging in some specious rationalization here.

"Flee fornication. Every sin that a man does is outside his body. But he that commits fornication sins against his own body." 1st Corinthians 6:18 "The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23

No, Ken, you are the one who is "misleading people" You claim to be "an evangelical follower of Christ" yet you make excuses for fornication. Read my post again. You twisted what I said. I said nothing about whether women "enjoy" fornication or not (sin has pleasure for a season, but the season and the pleasure end in death). Also, I said nothing about a young woman "receiving" "more or less" than a man in the act of fornication.... What they both "receive" is fleeting pleasure, in defiance of God's word (which says fornicators are sinning against their own bodies). What they LOSE, in terms of a relationship with God and a healthy relationship with one another if they DO get married (because their relationship was marred by sin at the outset, an unstable foundation has been laid- no pun intended- for the marriage).

Sex without marriage is called FORNICATION. Fornication is a destructive, no-win lifestyle where a person barters away their body and soul and gets nothing in return other than fleeting pleasure and long-term personal destruction and loss. A young woman who 'shacks up with a man has literally "given away the farm", and receives nothing in return for the transaction, other than the proverbial "shaft". Women in past eras knew this, and that is why they held out for marriage before making the gift of themselves. We have a culture today, thanks to the wholesale rejection of God and His ways, aided and abetted by a godless and deceitful public education system and a godless media, that has been stripped of the knowledge of God and stripped of the basic life skills necessary for a young person to survive in this cruel, hostile world.

"Me? I like knowing no one is running things because, for starters, it means I'm free." Sure, tell that to the IRS on April 15th. Or tell it to your mortgage holder when your next house or car payment comes due. Or tell the State Trooper who stops you for going 85 in a 65 zone. There are a myriad of ways people are not free. That is a fact of life for everyone, everywhere. Are their situations and places where people can be LESS free? Absolutely. Tyrannical political systems will make people less free (Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, communism wherever it takes root). Poor personal choices and misbehavior cause people to be less free (criminal behavior, substance abuse, immorality). The MORE we take personal responsibility for our actions and choices, the MORE free we become. Wrong choices (the Bible calls it sin) that are not "owned up to" and forsaken (repented of) will enslave and destroy us. A Jewish rabbi 2,000 years ago said, "If you continue in My word you are truly My disciples; and you shall know the TRUTH, and the truth shall make you FREE."

It appears General Washington and Henry the philanderer are paid trolls by the RNC Whatever they are paying you guys, it's TOO MUCH..... The General can't respond to a simple declarative English sentence (because he doesn't want to), and Hank the philanderer claims the opinion of the Mainstream media trumps all in matters of consideration concerning confronting Obama over Obama, with a possible government shutdown (typical RINO logic, "it's always OUR fault") The General and Hank the philanderer are two excellent examples why conservatives need to ditch the GOP and go 3rd party conservative Same old lame excuses evasions, again, and again and again....

Take a deep breath, General, and listen very closely.... Congress submits a CR budget to Obama that defunds Obamacare. OBAMA has a choice to make. He can SIGN the CR budget (that defunds Obamacare), or he can choose NOT to sign it. It will be HIS CHOICE. If he chooses NOT to sign the CR Budget, that will cause a "shut down" of government operations, which will be OBAMA'S responsibility, stemming from the CHOICE Obama made (not to sign the bill). Are you so OBTUSE that you cannot understand simple, declarative English sentences? Maybe the 'ague' has crept into your head from all those nights you've spent with the troops out there in Valley Forge!
