I do hope that she does not have a little plastic FISH SYMBOL or I LOVE JESUS STICKER on her car. I think skimpy bathing suits or other skimpy wearing apparel are a disgrace to the cross. She knows what she is doing so I don't think telling her will help. But it won't hurt either:).

---alan_of_UK on 5/14/08

So, what about lusting after your wife wearing skimpy clothing (privately?)

Does that also grieve the Holy Spirit? Is it lust in general, excessive lust, or just lusting after someone we're not married to?

And what about lusting after someone we are not married to yet? -I'd really like to know.

Alan of UK, don't sweat the small stuff.
Everyone knows that Alan of UK and Elder do not even exist. They are imaginary bloggers that belong in the mind of Linda, for Linda's imaginary alliances against imaginary conflicts that Linda starts against her own imaginary bloggers.
---BusterofAR on 5/13/08

Elder and I made up a long time and somehow the order of these post has been jumbled and makes it apprear tht I sm still in dispute with him
---alan_of_UK on 5/13/08

John T ... "You accepted the rebuke, agreeing you often post before you think". I don't think it me whom you rebuked, but someone who had insulted me
The spat here is because Elder has made insulting and scandalous insinuations about me. I don't know how much he thought beforehand. If he didn't think, I accept he may just have been thoughtless of the hurt he could cause, but in that case why does he not withdraw the insinuations.
---alan_of_UK on 5/10/08

R U kidding?,it's NOT OK!Time goes on, standards lower.Purpose of swimsuit:swim/ tan not show UR underwear!Devil's peer plot =pre-teen/teens 2 not feel different tho Christ-like in their "other" life.They walk the beach,guys almost fall over condo/motel balconies(lust=adultery).It's seeking self-esteem,attention,gaulking.We're NOT of this world!We're 2 TRANSFORM THEM by R walk/talk with Christ.Embarrasses ALL Christians 2 see this "sexy" clothing,it grieves the Holy Spirit 2!

Not in public. They are unacceptable and too suggestive. At home with a married mate would be a different circumstance. In public I would wear a one piece bathing suit with a large tee shirt over it. Coming out of the water, I would still be covered and nothing revealed.

Pucker up, Buttercups. I'm sending you smooches and kisses all around.

Elder, do you miss the days of old on CN?
I suppose there were fewer people with a smaller mixture of beliefs. Time/enemy has intensified the fight against Christianity.
What do you see that wasn't here many years ago. Would you share what you see now?
---Buttercup on 3/29/07

Alan, ChristiaNet is changing almost daily. We have all seen that. What they might have been able to do yesterday, with all things the same, may not be available today.
The President of CN told me as much as he could about your account. They watch out for and minister to as many as they can. If it were possible to reinstate your PenP account it would have been done.
The system, set up for the benifit of everyone, will not allow it.
Be thankful for what you have.
---Elder on 3/29/07

Alan, JohnE is not Buster.

I believe you, nothing untoward.
However, why not exchange private e-mail addresses while you are on P.P.
Then you can say whatever you want.
I can imagine there is some talking about other bloggers; so and so is nuttier than a fruitcake. So and so needs a straightjacket.
So and so is ....
---BusterofAR on 3/29/07

While no bad words may be spoken, maybe it's the talking about others that raises a flag, too.
Why not do that on private e-mails?
If we can't say it in public and air it out, why the need to talk about anything privately. We're all here to learn. If beliefs are contrary to the beliefs of CN, they can read the P.P.'s, too. It is their site. No shoes, no shirt, no service.<

Don't take my opinion personally, Alan, please.
But if someone needs to get a posse together to scoot someone off the blogs, that's not Christ-like.
Keep it all out in the open air.
Talk amongst yourselves privately for all criticisms of others and preserve your P.P. rights for something important.
---BusterofAR on 3/29/07

Alan of UK::Friend you are not the only one who is excomunicated from the sacred Halls of our Illustrious provider, where Humor is NIL & the swift sword of reproval like those who held sway in the synagogues "Let him who is among you cast the first stone"It was ok to be judgemental in those days!!!or was it?
---Emcee on 3/29/07

JohnE ... Well, why would one want to write on email, when the PP correspondence is going quite well?
In the past someone has been reinstated after the Site cancelled the PP account because of a misunderstanding of a word used.
It is right for the Site to monitor within reason, but to cancel and refuse to explain is not honest. In any case nothing untoward was said.
---alan_of_UK on 3/29/07

Sorry ... My last should have been addressed to BusterofAR not JohnE.

70 Lane Bryant one piece
80 Modern swimdress
90 1930s style
100 Burka
---JohnE on 3/26/07

Digression seems to be the main theme of this blog.
Since specific guidelines for swim/beach wear can not be found in scripture, there will be 100 differing opinions from 100 different people.
I wonder if a "sliding scale" would work.
e.g. What's appropriate on a scale from 0 to 100.
0 = Sans clothing and
100 = burka.
This would most likely require example representation of numbers to swimsuit style.
---JohnE on 3/26/07

Here's the thing, when you had the P.P. account intact, AlanofUK, why would you not exchange private e-mails and talk amongst yourselves?
I'm not surmising anything untoward was spoken over your P.P. account, but it's down the drain now.
It's difficult to contact one another unless you've known each other previously via telephone or some other form of communique.
Wouldn't the CN P.P. site be monitored for safety/appropriate chat, exactly like we are here. It is their site.

Elder ... "How can I be responsible for that"
In no way can you be responsible for that. I was trying to explain why I had not answered. I still cannot answer because I still don't understand your question.
I'm not blaming yuo, just explaining why I can't answer still.
Yopu see you have read me wrong?
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/07

Elder "Your statement shows that you know that. I also told you why I said what I did and you acknowledged what I meant"
I wrote that statement very recently, in an attempt to understand how it is we have rubbed each other the wrong way.
I did not realise it before ... that when you make a very barbed comment it is perhaps just to create a response, rather than to give offense.
If we don't intend insult, but in fact it is taken as insult, perhaps we have said something in the wrong way?

I am trying to make peace, and you have not seen it, perhaps because you have expected me to continue the dispute, which I don't want to, because it grievesme.
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/07

Elder Another thing to remember is that often post do not get published, which mean that what is published can give entirely the wrong impression
I recntly wrote a three-parter to you ... but only part 3 was published. Parts 1 & 2 were not offensive or inappropriate, but were essential to what I was trying to explain.
This sort of thing can so easily cause misunderstanding.
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/07

Elder "What's your purpose?"
My purpose was originally to defend myself against what seemed to be unwarranted attack and insult (although I now realise you probably did not mean it)
My recent purpose has been to make peace, but you have not recognised it.
---alan_of_UK on 3/20/07

Elder ... we should be able to disagree without winding each other up.

I really liked Walter Matthau. To tell you the truth, my Grandmother looked like Walter Matthau!

v51 David ran, drew Goliath's sword and slew him and cut off his head.
Goliath died the same way he lived by the sword.
David hit him with a stone and he cut off his head with a sword.
V50 says what David did and v51 tells how he did it.
---Elder on 3/18/07

David's stone I sure hope nothing happened to v51 in your Bible.
v49 David smote the Philistine in his forehead.... and he fell upon his face to the earth.
v50 tells what David did. He prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and stone, (and) smote the Philistine, (and) slew him.

Should Christian woman wear only bikini underwear or a low cut bra in public?? Is 1 more "covered" when wearing a bikini swim suit? NO. Is it okay for men to wear a bikini that covers yet accents parts? SAME thing... I once saw a female in a mall who wore a fishnet top & no bra, I couldn't help but take a 2nd look.

A Christian can wear a modest bikini, but if it advertizes the flesh, then it is no longer modest. Thus g-strings in public are a no-no for the Christian, and many exotic swimwears are also sin. Tell your Cristian friend the Bible specifies moderation in dress, and we are to represent holy Christ and not give him a bad reputation or a bad name, by calling ourselves Christian but dressing like whores dress. Your friend should be taking Christ everywhere everyday, including the beach.
