Peace be with you.
After a discussion between MattmanDude, CrazyOldTeenager, and myself, a short (but to the point) series of rules will now be coming into effect for this...

Just a message from an old wanderer passing through.
Lot of information for new recruits packed into a mere article. Also has three medal of honor soundtracks to listen too while reading if you want. Enjoy.
Your new order of business now that you are a member of the Grand Army of the Lord Jesus Christ.
*sigh* I don't know why I still bother with the atheist group at all anymore. I say something that proves their arguments or comments to be incorrect, the comment gets deleted. Guess they don't like facts and being embarrassed in front of others.
If any comments of yours got deleted let me know where and I will un-delete them
Winston doesn't like it when non troll comments are deleted
edit: apparently we can't un-delete them weird
are you sure you posted?
Perhaps their response was appropriate in this case? Here's the catch about trying to appeal to non-beleivers or argue theology with them.
When a Christian appeals to a non-believer about the faith it supposed be an attempt to convert, not a battle of the minds or an effort at dominance to prove one's "intellectual" superiority. Your to wait till the right opportunity presents itself to spread this Message, which takes experience and the Lord's guidance to accomplish. Were not to harass, and argue till both sides are red in the face and bitter. All that does is brew hatred and conflict.
As Christians, were here to spread the Message of Peace, not War.
Lastly, if they are "adamant" in refusing to hear the message. Do as Christ told the Disciples, dust off your shoes, and walk away. The Lord himself will deal with them in due time. But for now, such is no longer your concern. You can still pray for their salvation though, which is always a good option.
Do you understand now? This isn't about arguments, it's about people's souls. That takes priority over theological debates. Besides, such debates these days often result in nothing less that total flame wars.
Then why bother going over and trying to convert them. They're not interested mate. Leave them be.

So, what's your view on prostitution? Let's say there's a fairly lustful nymphomaniac that does 'it' in certain places for cash and pleasure. In addition, she uses web-cam to earn extra cash in some way; nudity and even gaming. What would Jesus say about it? I merely want to hear your opinion on this issue for some reason.
There were a few women Christ met in His day that were either unfaithful or prostitutes. He never hated them for what they did, nor approved of it either.
His stance was fairly simple on the matter. "Go and sin no more".
Lust is a major issue in today's world. Back when societies were more conservative such things were far less common. Partly because it was shunned and suppressed. Nowadays, anything goes.
Such desires can be overcome though.
You just need to believe the Message of the Cross.
Here's a follow-up to my previous comment. She clearly craves attention and she's quite intelligent when it comes to manipulation and exploitation. Moreover, she's a bit insane for some reason.
So, let's summarize it; there's a partly insane nymphomaniac that uses her brain(at least what's left of it) to earn money in various ways(moral and immoral). She's quite intelligent and sometimes even considerate and compassionate, but she craves attention and uses men in various ways nevertheless.
Jesus' message is crystal-clear, but I honestly think it would be hard to follow his advice in this case. What is your personal, refined advice?
From a Biblical standpoint, sin is a form of insanity. And since we all do it one time or another, we are all technically insane. Part of the reason Chirst did what he did for us, was so that we could have life after this cured from that insanity. But he also did it so that we could live our lives now, not dominated by it.
Point and case, it is not God's will for anyone to live a life like that. My personal advice for her, believe in the Cross (get saved), have a Book of Act's Chapter 2 (get filled with the Holy Spirit), and finally come to know the victory she deserves to have.
Run the course, finish the race. Do not be tripped up by such obstacles.
