Okay, I don't have time to get into this right now, but I really take issue with some of the things written in 1 Corinthians.

JUST SAYIN'. More later, but I just had to get that out. If you've got a Bible handy, and you're wondering what on earth I'm talking about, go ahead and read chapters 5-7. I'll be back later.

I agree with you. At least I think I do, since I don't exactly know WHAT parts you're talking about. But yeah-- we should totes talk about this in person, me thinks.

My main issue with it is that there's never a definition of sexual immorality. The example he uses is being with a prostitute. Well, why is that immoral? Is it because there's money/good exchanged? Is it because he/she has been with so many people? If so, how many is too many? I mean, I know what the Old Testament says about it, but the OT also told me that men had slaves, several wives, and lived to be 900 years old.

One of the things that gets under my skin? 6:18 "Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his body."
I just flat out disagree. I have a hard time believing that something physical that happens to my body is any less or more harmful than something mental. I'm not saying that it doesn't cause pain, or that it's not a sin; I'm not ready to say either of those things. But I fully believe that my spirit and soul are also important (to myself and to God) and that if I tell myself that I'm ugly, if I think that no one loves me, if I physically harm myself... that those things are just as, if not more, harmful.

I have no idea if I'm making sense. I'm tired and rambling. :) Let's discuss more later, mkay?

I completely forgot about this! I have the .txt saved where I went over it with my Pastor and helped me calm down a little bit about it. I should probably write about that, huh?
