Then Paul says five verses later that its advice from him, not from God

My two cents, friend. A parent ought to treat it like they would any other inclination to sin. You talk it out with the kid, explain that it goes against God's law. Make sure that he's in spiritual fellowship with God, reading his bible on a daily basis (not because he has to, but because he wants to). Remove any potential to sin, i.e. don't leave pictures of buff men all over the house.

And prayer, lots and lots of prayers.

One thing to keep in mind always is that the inclination is not the same as the sin itself. I have a propensity towards pride. That doesn't mean that I have to sin against God.

My personal thought is that Satan is so prideful, even knowing his downfall, he'd prefer to do things his own way. Very human of him.

I believe "This Present Darkness" is a Christian horror book.

Haha! No you misunderstood me. I mean that my church believes the Ouiji boards are satanic, not that they use it.

Yep. And it's compressed, and EQed and so on and so on. There's a fair amount of balancing that goes even into a solo acoustic guitar on albums and such. Again, in my personal experience.

In post-production, they'd still use software amps, at least in my experience

Ahh, but the problem with that is one of the core doctrines of Christianity is that he is unchanging. And that's kind of a serious, serious problem because if he changes, that means he wasn't perfect, to begin with.

Uhh, dude, I worked under a professional sound engineer, and I can tell you that pretty much all the music I worked with, across genres, used an amp of some type, either on the post-production end or as hardware. Am I missing something? Are you using a different definition?

I was about to post some brilliant sentence that would demonstrate the beauty of modern music, then I looked through my library and realized the only modern music I had was instrumentals and J-Pop. The rest is 80s and classical XD

Actual present. The term can be taken two ways (the two meanings of the word). If it's another adjective, meaning the end result. The action it's describing.

Flooding or pools, release. Transfer of water or dirt from one part of the body to another. A symptom of mental or physical stress.

A garden. Connection, symbiosis. A collective of people, organizations, corporations, etc. that work together to achieve a certain goal (goal-directed behavior, effective communication, peace/peacekeeping, etc.

Yes. I agree strongly. Whats more, that answer completely turns a blind eye towards all the perceived 'injustices' of the new testament and today. Why do children starve to death in third-world countries? You can't explain that away with a "Oh but that was the old testament", and yet, it stems from the same complaint. i.e that God is in some way unjust.

To be fair, one could argue that Jesus was focusing on the negative aspects because he may have adapted parts of his message to appeal to different audiences (like Paul did). The thing that we are being sanctified to be like Jesus. Jesus does not fear going to hell. He wants to serve his father in heaven. Why? Because he's afraid? No, he loves his father.

And thus, the great meme war of '21 began... Over the course of a few months, meme casualties had already reached the millions. But u/BibleMemes and u/SEE_THaTDooDD would not be deterred. There could only be one bible meme man....

uhh, yeah

It's from an animated film: The pirates who don't do anything.

It's actually pretty funny! I would encourage you to watch with some younger family members, if you have them.

Plot twist: u/2Kings616 didn't care at all about the stickies... This was a next-level play so that he could get a sticky himself!!!

Well, they're not mutually exclusive.

You look at the early greeks and pretty much all the plays and books that were pumped out during that time were instant classics. (Granted, part of that may be due to only the best of that period being copied widely enough to survive)

Since then, all the tropes that they invented have been used shamelessly and with no intelligence.

But, this paved the way for growth. Once all the tropes had been over-used, it gave fiction writers the chance to deconstruct and reconstruct and generally create amazing works of art.
