Choices finding gods way in dating sex marriage and singleness
Therefore, the primary objective of the scriptures is to conceal and preserve esoteric truths for fellow sincere seekers both in the present, and even more importantly in the future.
The objective of Mysticism is to circumvent the very limited knowledge of this world, and position themselves to receive Gnosis (Spiritual Knowledge) directly from God -- and all true mystics and Gnostics must understand the evolution of the soul over the course of many lifetimes.
The bottom line is this: That it makes little difference as to what YOU believe the nature of the scriptures are, if you fail to understand the sacred writings from the same perception and understanding as the original authors who composed them.
Thus, before you can even begin to understand the true meaning of the scriptures, you must first come to understand the original objectives of the authors.
” No one ever says that you are RIGHT to have issues with abusive family and that it is okay to stand up to them. ) Why can’t you say “mind your own business mom, that hurts my feelings” ~ It’s all about keeping the peace and harmony; as though the message is that love is acceptance of abuse! Why is it so important that we don’t rock the boat when it comes to ‘family’ no matter what they say? What about the time at a family wedding she told my cousin when we were both 19 years old, that it was okay if he slept with me because I was ‘on the pill’.
They say that if your mother comments on your weight because you are having a second slice of pumpkin pie you should just “let it go”… Why is it that it is up to the victim to learn to ‘let it go’ and accept people the (abusive) way that they are? What was her motive for saying that in front of the whole family? What made her think she had a right to say something like that, and to my COUSIN which made it seem even worse.
As I sat down with them to talk about life, I found something concerning: none of them were asking women out. Some had text-based relationships, but most of them were fearful of “messing up” or “ending up with the wrong one”. I’ve heard from Christian women that they either have said no to dating altogether (because the Christian guys don’t do any asking) or go on dates with men who aren’t Christians (because at least they are asking). I, too, was more of a prayer than a dater, until I had a number of older men sit me down and tell me to stop being afraid and take a girl to coffee. Real Christian men are needed to step up in this area. ” “What if I don’t like her after we date for a few weeks? Dating 101: Start by finding a girl who you think is interesting and attractive.
This fear caused them to seldom date and keep female relationships plutonic and confusing. Ask any Christian woman over the age of 22 how she feels about Christian men’s dating game and she’ll most likely confirm what I’m witnessing. In looking for “The One”, Christian men can easily get caught not asking women out AT ALL because she might not be “The One”. (Novel idea, I know.) The issue that many men run into, I know I did, is over spiritualizing the dating process. ” Praying about your dating life is of course advised, but there is such a thing as too much praying. Ask her out in person or over the phone (no texting).
If we are have all these sexual urges and desires, it must not be a bad thing… It was completely normal in my high school, actually.I don’t get it; it seems that the solution “out there” is always about acceptance of the people who are doing the damage, and then taking responsibility for YOUR part in it.It is always assumed that each person in the relationship shares part of the blame for the difficulties in family relationships.This morning I was doing research on dealing with dysfunctional family during the holidays.
Everything that I find about this problem has to do with advice regarding ‘acceptance of others’ and how we can’t change anyone else.
I’m really proud of him for conveying such a tough message! Why are you hiding behind prayers, vague intentions, group hangouts, and TEXT MESSAGES? If you are clearly leading her on step up and ask her out, or stop leading her on.
