"Personally, If had had to do it all over again I would not date a woman that is not a Christian. If she is not living as a Christian she probably isn't. Too many people claim to be Christians because they they think they must be because they…"
"Ken- A Christian IS a Christian 24/7 365. They strive to live a moral sinless life but it is completely impossible. The difference is they struggle with sin every day whereas people like you don't. "ALL have sinned and fall short of the…"
"Whoever would be greatest among you must be a servant of all. Which gives high hopes for all of us, if we submit to each other, as all are called on to do.
Submission doesn't appeal to me either, but God has different ideas."
"Hmm. What is a good christian woman? Clean cut? Seams like most are, unless your looking in clubs or something.
