    Not happy with your no sex before marriage policy. You don't really expect anyone to actually refrain from sex do you? Wouldn't it be more Christian to preach that teens practice safe sex, and only with someone they love? It's unrealistic and legalistic to think teens will refrain from sex. Better to preach moderation than to preach in vain.

 
Reply:
    Actually, it's not my "no sex before marriage policy," it's what's written in God's law. And you're certainly not alone in your displeasure with it. Nor in your belief that premarital sex is an unconquerable urge that should be managed rather than witnessed against. It has always been the nature of man (Proverbs 12:15) to justify whatever "seems" right in his own eyes, rather than follow the counsel of God.

To specifically answer your question, NO, it most certainly would not be "more Christian" to preach that teens should practice safe sex, but it would be "more Palatable" to those who prefer to compromise and concede rather than fight the good fight that Christians are called upon to fight. And to imply that it is impractical for people to abstain from sex before marriage is post-modern humanistic propaganda, which not only invalidates God's law, but general morality and history as well. Which I'll grant, most people are perfectly willing to do to ease their conscience. But there is the faith of the saints in the testimony of Christ.

You say "Better to preach moderation than to preach in vain," but for the record, no preaching in truth, is preaching in vain.

    Thank God for His faithfulness in keeping His word, servants and truth. I hold to the Reformed faith and the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith in the town of Grenada, Ms. I pray that more people will learn more about biblical theology and eschatology through your site. I am persuaded that God's truth will triumph gloriously in faithful servants proclaiming the truth, regardless of popularity, tradition or modern social pressures. Keep up the old works.

    Many thanks for this web site and fine collection of articles on issues that most people have not thought about or have trouble finding biblically defensible help.

    I come to your site for a drink so often. It never runs out and I always click on the topic I least desire correction on...and I am gently and carefully steered in the right direction.

Comments:
    Why do you all think that bikinis and short skirts are immoral? How is one supposed to swim in a robe that is down to the ankles? A lot of the old biblical rules for dress was cultural and for those people back in biblical times. Furthermore, is there a certain length when a woman's dress or skirt becomes immoral? If not it's arbitrary.

    I came out of Catholicism because I could not reconcile the things my Church was teaching with what the Bible taught. The pivotal moment was when I heard a preacher point out that the bible teaches that no man is infallible, only God. When I asked my priest about it, instead of telling me to search the scriptures, he did just the opposite and said they might be confusing to me. It was then and there that I realized that he didn't really want me to find out for myself what the scriptures said. From then on I started reading for myself and was directed to your page. God's blessings for helping us to understand the authority of the word concerning doctrine and truth vs. that claimed by the Church.

    I cannot express into words all that The Mountain Retreat has meant to me. It is very refereshing to read and to study articles from brothers in Christ who are moved to believe the scriptures as I do. It became apparent many years ago upon accepting the call to preach I was in the minority as an Amillennial. After many years of prayer and Bible study it is still difficult for me to understand how so many persist in their Premillennial Doctrine. The Mountain Retreat has given me the added strength needed to preach with conviction all that God has laid upon my heart. Thank you once again for this website.Pray for me as I will pray for you.

    I have been hearing about how great this site is and frankly I am not impressed. If all there is here is articles of John Calvin, Herman Hoeksema and Bunyan, then you have missed the boat. The site needs a facelift, and it was much better when you spoke out against Roman Catholicism and their false doctrines. Now it's all about being nice and how the Reformed Church is failing us. The Reformed Church is simply modernizing, not failing. Its caught up to the 20th century. Get with the program.
