I will put it to you this way- you would not exalt Muslim extremists who practice femal genital mutilation- the action of far less from surgically removing young women's [about the age of seven] clitoris and labia, in a brutal fashion, leaving them nearly crippled and prone to much infection, not to mention how so much of their feminity is extracted from their existence. So, why then do you exalt your efforts in similar action towards your humanity and masculinity simply because you can pretend a match of civility by that you draw no blood and do not use a knife?

    MT, for the first time ever, I find you recommendation to someone ridiculous. If what you say is true, why at all should she feel any inclination of betrayal even? Hmm, clearly, she's not entitled to be offended by her husbands actions, because only she is responsible for herself, so if she feels hurt or pain, it's only her cause of course, no one else can make her feel that. And worse yet, married couples get caught in mutually causal cycles and patterns- where one behaviour cyclically reinforces another where no one is left to blame, and that all has to be out in the open, a defeated man without support from his wife will look to porn, and his porn will create a pattern where she wont support him, it all began hypothetically, back when he didn't take out the garbage or she said something quite innocent off hand that didn't mean anything but was taken the wrong way and it all tumbles into an avalanche- and you're telling someone not to worry about such a likely pattern in all marriage

    Dove. I am not exactly the person who says things 'prettily'. Since you posted a prayer request I have chosen to respond to you here like this instead of side line your wishes. You are however being crazy and stupid as your post was wondering. Your guy's issue believe it or not, has nothing to do with you. And here's a challenge for you. Without sacrificing your ground as a person who wants to offer support- DO NOT insist that he get over his porn for you- this doesn't mean that you can't help- it just can't be for you- here's why- Porn, at least the popular mainstream forms presently depends on creating the degrading revenge format where men make women pay for always turning them down in their past, or where they can be powerful because they have no authority in our society or work etc. If he does it all for you and this doesn't work out- the first place he's going to go again is porn because it will justify, amplify and provide a ready example for how he is able to release his hurt.

    Dude, I am not an admin, but I would like to convey two things, tone down on the 'I can help you' and the ideas of inviting people away from the prayerwall, esp. in an enironment like facebook which removed the safety it provides with anonymity. No problem with wanting to help or be of aid, but offer advice and encouragement here, not elsewhere- we all need to be held accountable as a community, and if you want to be a part of this online community, then get to know everyone as time goes by don't be 'asking them into the back or private room', not that you would, but, in the spirit of openness and the flaws and risks of cyber-communication- go slow.

    universal defiance.

    Sorry for the long responses, that is my two sense worth. Please, remember, do not be discouraged, I am very forceful, and if nothing else, I have held your perspective before, and abandoned it because agreeing with it did not take away the grief and conflict I saw, and was approached with, among people who should have been brothers, who should have had charity between them, who didn't exhibit a Christ, who could be right, and lay down his rights for love. If nothing else, understanding of that is all I wish between us- keep up the struggle good brother, and be encouraged!

    The story changes- you're still not mad, you're annoyed that you have to show them, that your love doesn't need proof- because it is simply there, you're going to beat the living shit out of the insecure rejected neighbour kid, for daring your kids to kill themselves, but you're not mad at you kid, because, you know, where their mind is, it can't know you as it should yet- but it loves you! And That's how I see God and people- you can do this, if you let me grow your ears, let me grow eyes- and all of us fight that, because we can't see, or hear, but God is moving around us, teaching us, like Helen Keller was taught- you weep for such a child and you get frustrated, but not angry, certainly not at them. It is the few, very few, whom I think you're speaking of when you talk of evil and guilt- because they have found a stool or chair to stand with, and call it legs and wont accept the wisdom and patient love of God- and yes, this is the same state, but being in it does not equal

    I see it that, say you are gardening- which is a very poignant scene for our faith- you tell your young child not to eat this kind of berry, because it's poisonous. They eat it- you can be mad at the circumstance- you had so much planned for the day, and now you have to go to a merge to save your child. You can be disappointed and annoyed that your child didn't listen to you- and you can shout at them because they didn't and you love them and want them to live- but fundamentally, you're not angry, you might be furiously frantic like a man prossessed to get them healthy- but you're not mad at them- and you know, they will in fact, grow up, if they learn how to listen, see, speak, etc, so they wont do it again, but you're not mad at them- because you know they're small, they want to be like you, and they can't understand why they can't use a long hoe like the one you use when gardening, but they will. But if your child is dared to do it- to prove themselves when you don't need them

    Dude,

    I just want to convey the sentiment- do not be discouraged by the statements on your post. We're all a little jaded around here, SR and myself more than most. I know you mean well and just want for people to meet the Lord and know his wonders, and the last thing I want is to be discouraging in that regard. I am sure it is useful for some, [Alice Cooper was saved via a 'fire and brimstone' sermon. We have opposite spectrum views of how to meet God, you and I, and I assure you, Jesus is at the heart of mine, just as he is yours. I disagree, not because people don't do terrible things, or that God is not righteous, both are true- but God's condemnation is very specific and isolated and never goes after the total potential of humanity to be what he wants them to be- if he did, from my point of view, there would be no Jesus- because he is the expression of God which says 'I have come, because I know you- you have a poisonous wound, I come to draw out the venom.'
