Re: Ethics Question for Practicing Anabaptists

I've been hearing of this problem more and more: some call it internet addiction. I also agree that the person is stealing time from his employer and that it's therefore theft. Are there solutions to this?

Re: Sunday School vs. Church Attendance?

I don't have numbers for the individual parish. I do know that SS gets quite a few parents in the adult classes because they have children attending SS.

Re: Morals and Values??

At 82 years old I can offer the "long view" observation: In a word, yes, the culture at large has increasingly accepted immoral behaviors. What was once taboo is now touted publicly. The "sexual revolution" in the 1960s was the first mass public promotion of sexual immorality in...

Re: Socializing with pagans

Personally, since I have dealt with non believers on a daily basis without it changing my own walk, I would go. BUT I would also take some Christian singers with me. Music invites others to the Gospel with a spoonful of honey in such recreational settings. (Is the Oasis Chorale available?). Definite...

Ethics Question for Practicing Anabaptists

We were visiting friends yesterday and the discussion turned to a problem in today's workplace: workers spending time online all day arguing in forums instead of attending to their responsibilities - poor work ethic. Our friends said it's difficult to catch yet they know it's happening from the webs...

Re: Swiss Brethren?
