    Sexual immorality is living a life of amoral sexuality.

    I further define it by using God's word, the bible, as my guide.

    Those sexual rules don't make logical sense to me so therefore I don't follow them. Rules have to make logical sense for me to actually give a damn and actually follow them.

    Well, you must be a believer in God for them to make sense.

    You are not a believer in God?


    EDIT: Actually, they make much sense whether you are a believer or not. It's just that you might not internalize them like you would if you accepted God into your life.

    Lepidus: What manner o' thing is your crocodile?
    Antony: It is shap'd, sir, like itself, and it is as broad as it hath breadth; it is just as high as it is, and moves with its own organs. It lives by that which nourisheth it, and the elements once out of it, it transmigrates.
    Lepidus: What color is it of?
    Antony: Of its own color too.
    Lepidus: 'Tis a strange serpent.
    Antony: 'Tis so. And the tears of it are wet.

    You mean anglicans or something like that?

    I think you must have a very different perspective being from NI. In america I'd be surprised if many nondenominational Protestants are even aware of Calvin and Luther and what they taught on the most elementary level. That's why I think it's so weird that you tie together reformation beliefs with all the problems of modern evangelicalism when most are so detached from the beliefs and practices of the reformers.
    I'd admit that's probably the case, reading Erasmus and Luther's discourse on free will Erasmus comes of as the more modern and progressive thinker, without abandoning anything, Luther appears to be at once atavistic and radical or at least favouring radical change, ironically, a lot of the personality profiles of modern evangelists, certainly the street preachers I've encountered in NI, are similar to that of Luther.

    Its part of the reason I was interested a while back in methodism and other tendencies like that because I wondered if they were much changed, protestant friends when I asked about distinctions told me that they were mainly cultural, different habits of dress on sundays or during the week, different attitudes to alcohol but what united them all was the same underlying unitary frame of reference.

    I hope I'm not coming off like a bigot here because I'm not saying that I dont think they are entitled to those opinions or anything like that, they are and can do as the please on sundays, I just believe that its stuck in a moment. Not that the RCC hasnt its own tendencies which are similar either.

    I do but I don't take all the rules at face value. My morals are shall we say...."flexible".
