"True, I agree 100%. But the issue is a man who is not celibate by choice because of conviction, but of one that does not want children who is in fact selfish and somewhat "incomplete". I think that is the gist of the thought here. I never…"

Terry replied to Jeff Miller's discussion How do you really feel about having kids?
"There are many WRONG times to have children but the time is rarely ever "Right." So don't wait around for that to happen. If you or your spouse currently enjoy & would miss any one of the following: A) Free Time B) A disposable…"

Sir replied to Jeff Miller's discussion How do you really feel about having kids?
"Well, I sure as hell was a man before I had a kid. (And a good thing I didn't wait until I had him to become one.) For that matter, so was Pope John Paul II. Jesus Christ. Several others who never had children. Lordy."

Cowboy Bob Sorensen replied to Jeff Miller's discussion How do you really feel about having kids?
"A man is not a Man until he is also a Father, and a Daddy. Perhaps you find it an extra fulfillment, but some men choose not to have children for various reasons and others are unable. I would not say that they are "not men"."

"A man is not a Man until he is also a Father, and a Daddy. What is life without the joy of a baby daughter or son, lifting arms to you as you arrive home from fighting lions on the urban Serengheti, with a smile as wide as his/her face and…"

Jeff Miller replied to Darrell Wright's discussion What is your take on the Submissive Wife? in the group Christian Men
"Why not? Well as I said a leader is always superior to the led. Can you give me an example outside of marriage where the leader is not superior to the people he leads?"

Jeff Miller replied to Darrell Wright's discussion What is your take on the Submissive Wife? in the group Christian Men
"It is not possible to both have a leader in a relationship and have the two partners be equal. If there is a leader, then the other is the led. And there cannot be equality between those who lead and those who follow."

Jeff Miller replied to Darrell Wright's discussion What is your take on the Submissive Wife? in the group Christian Men
"I understand what you are saying but it is still a flawed analogy. You say: "husbands should treat their wives like Christ treats the Church, and wives should treat their husbands like the Church treats Christ." But the way the Church…"

Christian Men

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him

"An interesting idea, but having lived in New Hampshire a few years ago, I'd say it will be impossible for 20,000 people to find jobs there. Heck it would be impossible for 2,000 people to find jobs there. Small state-not a booming economy."

"Try reading the Politifact article. Al Jazeera isn't talking about the same wall. That's the very definition of a "Red Herring". They started talking about something else and hoped nobody would notice. Apparently it worked on you."
