"To combine a couple of quotations and add a song lyric. "Be careful what you pray for...the Lord works in mysterious ways." "You don't always get what you want,  but you always get what you need.""

"No, in my opinion, there's nothing wrong with your praying for God's guidance and intervention in sending you a suitable Christian young woman who could potentially be your wife down the road. The choice of a spouse is certainly a major…"

"I agree that Faith without deeds is dead. God helps, but I have to work at it too. I don't think that praying out of money for your own ambitions that do not have God is good. For example I think its good to pray for success in Him through many…"

"When Adam was in the garden of Eden, before God created Eve, he (Adam) was perfect, because he didn't sin yet. And because he was perfect, he was 100% husband material, he was ready to be a husband. Maybe God wants to teach you something, or…"

""selfish" isn't the vice I'd be worried about in this context.  "Presumption" is.  It has been my experience, and I think this is supported by parts of Paul's epistles, that there is value in preparing…"

Jack Bauer replied to Rush's discussion Praying for Wife Material. Selfish Prayer? in the group Christian Men
"It might be a bit selfish.  But, a lot of prayers are.  And, that's fine.  Just remember to include the "thy will be done" part.  There's nothing wrong with asking for what you want.  Humility comes not…"

"Of course not, that is how a believer is to live, friend. It took me 20 years of prayer; I have the wife the Lord provided me, and now I understand why it seemingly took so long... Our Lord is not in a hurry, he provides the best for us, if we…"

Does the universe have powers?

The definition of universe of course is open to your interpretation; could be your god, the physical universe, or maybe just your immediate environment/sphere of influence. I'm 27 and nearly 2 years into my career. I'm not happy. In fact I think I'm starting to loose my mind. A windlowless basement, unreliable car, no friends, no relatives around, and no woman isn't helping. I'm in no less financial debt than I was before I took this job. I'm no healthier. I've been called dumb too many times…See More

Between Revolution and Apathy

Any opinions on whether a man should just not give a seconds thought about todays politics?In my opinion, politics are for the privileged, educated people.

That last thing on my mind is poll numbers.Instead of people taking hard-lines on politics can't they just step back and work hard and be good honest people with integrity?An example would be my…See More

The Great Debate

"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
