The typical reply I get around here (work) when I talk about lifestyle rules or doctrine, is that there is no right and wrong. Right and wrong are based on what the society finds acceptable. I've stopped having those conversations; I'm not real fond of beating my head against a wall. I know that there is a right and wrong, because God told me there's a right and wrong, and he never changes. People who don't believe in God cannot be convinced there are absolutes.

I'm not even sure I know what it means to not "put God in a box".

It's mostly just a manipulative buzz phrase implying that your God is lesser than the person saying it.

It’s something you should ask your Pastor.

We limit the working of God in our lives by what we think He won't do, or by trying too hard to figure out what He will do.
We limit how God can use us in the lives of others.
In our pride, we presume that we can know what God will and will not do.
In our pride, we presume to know exactly what God has in mind.

How you dare to judge the work of the woman preacher that I know is beyond me.

Discrediting Gods work is the height of arrogance and pride.
Thinking that your knowledge of Gods will is greater than what Gods will is doing is legalism beyond comparison. It’s a demonstration by you of your ignorance for the Grace of God.

I suggest humbling yourself before God before that box closes.

I cant believe this thread. Its still my contention that we probably agree on 98% of stuff. The attitude here is disgusting towards fellow Christians, obviously me in particular. And if you are a member of the LCMS Roos...well I'll leave my comments offline on that one.

I'm looking fwd to see what you pick and choose to reply on from my post. It says alot about you. Look at yourselves, you come back to this thread just to build yourself up and chastise other believers. Again, its disgusting.
