  1. Hmmm, care to elaborate there...? I don't see anything written
  2. No longer fun..... (?)

    I wish the chatroom was still working
  3. Not going to church in and of itself would not be a red flag for myself. Too many people form naive suppositions about others based on that persons actual or imagined church attendance- i.e. "that person couldn't have been the thief, they go to church at......" Just as sitting in a car dealership doesn't make oneself an automobile, attending church doesn't make a person a believer (obedient or not). I think a person's character and lifestyle is far more important than their church going status. Unfortunately, there are a lot of churches out there but the overall quality doesn't seem very high. Many have flawed doctrine and are very weak on preaching. For instance, not many churches will actively promote waiting. They might mention it in their publications, but most are not actively preaching sermons on it. Ideally, Christians would be in good churches most Sundays, but these are not ideal times we are living in. Now, if someone had a hostility towards going to church or a hostility towards church in general, that would be definitely be a red flag (or more like "U-Turn" sign ) for me. But, I would rather have someone who actually lives a proper Christian lifestyle than someone who just has proper church attendance.
  4. "Do you think being a waiter also makes you prone to abstinence with other things, or is this just me?" There are definitely some very strong correlations but I don't think that that is the causation. I think it is more that the reasons/beliefs/ideas that led one to be a waiter are also what influences ones outlook on other matters. So for me, being a waiter is the natural conclusion of the beliefs I have. I don't drink, don't smoke, don't use narcotics, etc.... (I do eat meat though ) but it's not because of being a waiter. It is because of some of the same reasons I have for being a waiter. I think a desire for purity and a focus on health influences all of these things.

  9. No, waiting till marriage is not normal. In fact, it is peculiar. But that is alright- Titus 2:14: “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
  10. Just thought of sharing my experience

    There have been a variety of "intro" posts that have been made on the forum like that . Each one has a link to some business or service.

    I believe it is an advertisement disguised as an "intro"
  12. I would definitely still wait even if I were to turn away from religion. There is a definitely a religious component to waiting for me. However, it is also something that makes perfect sense to me. Waiting is the natural product of my religious, philosophical, and personal views. Just on a purely "self-serving" level, waiting protects my mind and body. If I turned away from religion, I would not take up smoking, drinking, or drugs. In the same way, I would not have relations outside of marriage.

    Welcome to the forum. Yes, no reason to feel of less value because of waiting; quite the opposite.
