Aquila, I'm sorry you took my post that way, please forgive me if I offended you. I certainly did not intend to paint you as a depraved pervert or some kind of monster.

I just wish couples would keep private things private. We share too much these days, IMO.

I don't really want to see a pic of the breakfast or dinner you had, either.

I don't even share that information with my best friend, and he knows pretty much everything about me.

Is it only to discuss what nights we play Scrabble, Bridge, and Monopoly? What television shows we have to suffer through that our spouses like? Or maybe it is to discuss our chores list? Marital issues by nature can be mature topics. It could include subjects like arguing, fights, a spouse's hidden drinking problem, sex, sexual dysfunctions, questions relating to frequency, impotence, recovering from affairs, etc. Other Christian forums have marriage sections that are on fire with questions, people seeking help, suggestions, advice, about all kinds of things. In a way, this forum's marriage section is DEAD. It's rarely posted to at all. Why are other Christians on other Christian forums so willing to be open books and tackle the mature topics... but Apostolics get squeamish about the whole thing? Y'all need to lighten up, open up, get real, make it plain, don't be so afraid of what someone else might say or think, and have reasonable measures to keep minors out of the topic. Even Facebook has an age requirement. Or... why even have a Marriage Section? Oh, it's the bridge night thing. No problem. Now back to our regularly scheduled program of Mayberry. I think you know what I'm saying.
I do know that Hotels and Motels report that X-rated movie rentals are the same regardless if the guest is there for a secular or church conference. So, maybe those other "Christian" forums are "on fire" on this topic for reasons that are not so savory??

What if someone else doesn't entirely share your approach to the issue? For example, I'm relatively anonymous. Few, if anyone here, knows my real name or my last name. That allows me some degree of freedom to be more frank. Now, I assure you, I wouldn't share those kinds of things in a seminar or anything attached to my real name on the world wide web either. I posted those things in a Marriage Rejuvenation thread. I didn't post them in The Fellowship Hall. The question was asked, "Any great ideas from anyone on how us married folks can keep the home fires burning?" Okay, that can go almost anywhere if people post with frankness and honesty. I'm thinking about those couples whose "home fires" (their passion) is dead. Their marriage bed cold. The intimacy gone. I didn't mean any harm by sharing a few intimate ideas based on our private lives. I meant to offer some ideas to heat things up for couples who might be trapped under ice. That was my intention.
I get that. I would share such things in a third person rather than first. Like I posted:

And in the context, it's not impure or unholy just because it's brazenly erotic.
SoS also just made it into the biblical canon due to its message. However, inspired of God is still inspired of God. Many believe it references God and His bride. Others that it speaks of a man and woman's love to each other. I believe both can be seen. I will add that of all the books of the Bible, SoS proves a biblical marital relationship consists only between a man and a woman.

I did not attack you either. You spoke of the pure and the defiled, and within the context of this discussion I believe it is clear how I used my response.

No, I'm not going down that road. Not my business.

This, however, is the road I intend to travel:

On page 2, post #20, the one that is bothersome to many of the people posting in this thread, I see that it is dated 07-14-2016.

Here's the link:

http://www.apostolicfriendsforum.com...9&postcount=20

However, in this thread:

http://www.apostolicfriendsforum.com...4&postcount=26

you make specific mention of your "fiance". Not wife, but fiance. This post is dated 09-02-2016.

Please reconcile the dates and the data you have provided. In a post dated from July of last year, you mention or refer to several different acts or actions of a clearly sexual nature with your "lady love". Then, in a post dated from September of last year, which is two months after the July 2016 post, you mention that the woman in your life is not a wife, but a fiance.

Point blank:

Were you married to your "lady love" before you made the post from July of last year, even though she was merely your fiance as of two months later?

If she doesn't feel security, then that's the husband's fault. This joker finds every opportunity to shock the forum, whether in his ultra liberal political views, his religious stance (I say that loosely) to his relationship with his girlfriend. We are just here to amuse Chris. Nothing more, he loves being the guy dancing on the table with a lampshade on his head. He most likely is the invisible man in his real world setting. Because you KNOW, none of his circus routine would last 15 minutes in real time face to face. He wouldn't be able to cut and paste, and therefore he would run out of material.

Yet, that isn't exactly what this joker is doing. He comes up with the most liberal flaketard foolishness. I mean, seriously, this isn't just about him posting about his fantasies. It is a total package, he is so sideways on so many levels. It is no longer funny.

I was shocked at what was discussed, even with it being divided with men in one area and women in another. I'm not exaggerating when I say much of what was discussed was pornographic in detail. It's no wonder that church has had several affairs over the years!
No doubt, because the individuals lose whatever little Holy Ghost they once had. No one ever stood up in the group and pointed out that the weaklings running the show were actually perverts. Tar and feather always sets a man free.

While we may not always agree, I appreciate sanity. A voice crying in the Childreness is so much needed in this time.

Excellent, and thank you

Aquila go to the woodshed and learn what this meaneth.

Elder, the guy is an ultra liberal.

Playing the victim is one of his tools in his bag of tricks.

Thank God for that.

I think Aquila is down at Planet Fitness with towel draped around his neck waiting for the guy with the calzone to get off the machine. He isn't waiting for the use of the equipment. But for the calzone.

Amen, that isn't hard to figure out.

Chris, knows this, but chooses to use his magnifying glass to burn the ants. Instead of observe them and use the tool properly.

Bro, addressing the issue?

Chris, I just see you as a Prophet of Baal.

Oh, while you play victim here chew on this

Bro, you lost your right to victimhood a long time ago.

Sad thing is this, you actually still believe that your circus act is still believable. it isn't, you are here for one reason. That is to be so over the top that you can laugh as you freak out other members of this forum.

You need to take your own advise and seek JESUS in prayer, fasting, and getting "soaked?" in the word.

Chris, the clock is ticking dude.

I think you guys have a good point. Perhaps restricting the marriage thread to those profiles registered as being 18 or older would not only protect those who are under age, but offer a degree of freedom for those with perhaps more serious questions that are of an intimate nature.

It's not a "bad" idea. IF... you're really that concerned.
Do you still use curse words, Chris?
