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.
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.

Apparently, love is merely a commendable addiction - Blogs.discovermagazine.com
Neuroscience vs love - Twitter.com
So, what's your view on this matter? And what does the Bible say about it? And, as a Christian, what is love to you?
1 Corinthians 13:1-13
"If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful."
Love is timeless to me. There's nothing that can stand against it, not even the most terrible of weapons. In fact, it's the one thing that can make entire armies through down their weapons and just sing praises to God. And God is love.

It's been snowing steadily for a few hours now. Snow is all over the place. So, I was looking through the window at a clump of trees and ferns partly covered by countless tiny ice crystals, then I looked up at the clear sky to spot some splendid stars. Just some moments that made my day. And it's still wonderful outside. Snow absorbs sound to some extent. I like silence, it makes me serene and helps me concentrate and meditate. I was thinking about certain matters, maybe this image will convey my feelings - Newevolutiondesigns.com
Some scenes and moments are priceless. People rarely notice the beauty of natural habitat and space.
Some things are unreachable and that's why we desire them so much. If a deity gave you an opportunity to visit or see a particular place, where/what would it be? And if you were given a chance to know something, what would it be? And if you could meet someone again(for the first time), how would you act?
And now a peculiar question. ;) Jesus was a virgin? :O
I went out for a jog after my morning exercises this morning and couldn't help but see the moon still half visible in the sky and the sun rising to the opposite side. Saw a couple jack rabbits hopping around on my jog. Small things but dang they can run.
Then once I finished I stopped and just observed all the trees and sunlight beaming down. Birds chirping, cool morning breeze, just perfect. If I didn't have work to worry about and all the other demands of life I'd make it a daily thing just to enjoy life.
If I could visit any place I wanted any time I wanted I would probably jump around planet by habitable planet and check out the place. Take a morning jog in another galaxy. I like that idea.
Yes, he was a virgin.
You clearly like sport and brief excursions. A breath of fresh air, literally and figuratively. I honestly think previous generations were more spiritual, cos' they were more connected to nature.
Maybe you watched Interstellar. It made a lasting impression on me(a relatively positive experience). I'd like to visit some habitable planets as well. Maybe a wormhole will appear near Saturn just for us. Prepare the shuttle! Intrepid explorers rarely stay at home - Youtube.com
It sounds like a fiendishly difficult task to remain a virgin in any society nowadays. Main-stream media and current generation overall promote kinky matters on a daily basis. And the Internet is filled to the brim with lustful people. Are you sure Jesus was a selfless virgin, cos' here's a gospel that says otherwise - Abovetopsecret.com Is it accurate or authentic, no idea.
Would you like to be my Archer - Youtube.com
The modern age has it's pros and cons. But I'd love to have more time to just enjoy nature and relax. I miss when life was simpler, in that you had more time to just relax and think.
I remember seeing movies and reading about the astronauts as a kid. Gotta admit, I envy them. They can get to go places I can only dream about.
Tell me about it. Lust is a big issue in today's society. But it was just the same back then with perversion. In a way people really have never gotten over those youthful desires. Probably why they married off younger back then.
Can't confirm their authenticity. And the canonical scripture mentions nothing of the sort. I'm certain if Christ were married it would have said something in the several books of the New Testament.
I'm glad you accepted my tempting offer. From now on our relation looks like this Youtube.com & Youtube.com
