    Let me say...

    1 Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
    2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
    3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
    4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
    5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's. - Psalms 103

    God has the power to forgive all our iniquities and repair the damage done by our ill-judgements. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life are all things we can repent of and receive forgiveness. Divorce, witchcraft, fornication, and all manner of bad decisions are all things we can be forgiven of. Especially when we ask these things in Jesus name.

    The problems are in the possibilities of the flesh coming back to life damaging the original good done by God. We then can be subject to the painful effects of bad relationships.

    Wasn't really trying to be funny.

    There could be a very valid REASON that this lady dropped out sight.

    We need to be very careful of not knowing the entire story.

    sounds like the OP should be more worried about his own life and faith than trying to judge someone else.. Judge not lest ye be judged.. let he who has no sin cast the first stone.

    he boasts of all this work he does then judges another because she struggles with a particular sin.. sure sounds like the pharisee attitude to me.

    someone mentioned the op and depending on eternal security. from what I see, the op does not even believe in eternal security, his security is in his works and good deeds and how righteous he is. not God and all God did for him..

    I now often offer the issue about being able to know or to be able to offer other's how to know one has eternal life. I give them an index care with the reference 1 John 5:9-13 written on it. I find most are always interested.

    If you are going to get into a relationship these days you had better have the ability to judge and discern or you may end up in a terrible disaster!

    Please note... I am not judging anyone over appearance issues. If someone is talking open fornication, though, I am going to say something about it.

    make sure you take care of your own sin first.

    saying someone is not saved because they struggle with sin is not biblical, in any sense of the word.. Unless your sinless. you have no right. you would be just as lost as her

    It is nice to see biblical marriages with the sense of being blessed of God. In which I find too many divorce and remarriages these days. Especially among Christians.

    no argument there, I agree..

    but it still does not excuse judging someones salvation.

    God put powerful motivation in the human race to populate this world,. There is…

    1. A fornication with repentance - I will help pray and continue in fellowship!
    2. A fornication without repentance - I will threaten the salvation and avoid!

    Along with some scripture…

    14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
    15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
    16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. - 2 Peter 3

    1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
    2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
    3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,
    4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
    6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
    7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
    8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
    9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
    10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
    11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
    12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
    13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person. - 1 Corinthians 5

    You do realise King David spent his life committing adultery do you not? In fact his greatest sin was rape and murder.

    once again, You need to get that log our of your eye.. We don;t judge them, we help them, You will never get a person to repent by judging them, Nathan did not Judge David or threaten his salvation. He spoke in a way to get david to see his own sin.

    You need to be more like Nathan and less like the pharisees

    And... Remembering the scripture...

    Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.- Hebrews 13:4

    Borrowing an interpretation of Hebrews 13:4... "It is crucial for believers to maintain a godly, healthy approach to sexuality. This includes fidelity within marriage, as well as abstaining from sex until a person is married." - What does Hebrews 13:4 mean? | BibleRef.com

    I hear no repentance from you my friend

    Stop boasting of how great you are and pumping your chest. and start loving the lost. Like Jesus did.

    Your focused on one sin.. Start focusing on your own sin, and start loving others.. because that is the only way God will use you to get others to repent.

    Did I say sexual sin was ok?

    You judged a persons salvation. and continue to judge.

    who or what gives you that right?

    Psalms 130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

    do you think you would stand if God marked YOUR iniquities?

    It is nice to have attended the Indian Valley Church of God this past Sunday night where there was a wonderful Spirit among the pastor and congregation. Now... I am not Church of God or recommending any kind of denomination. But this pastor is right on the money on his thoughts os saved, sanctified, and being filled with the Holy Spirit!
