He rings the bell, and the owner tells him the dog is in the
backyard.

The guy goes around the house and into the backyard and
sees a nice-looking Labrador Retriever sitting there.

Christian Living: 10 Ways to Tell You Are A Backsliding Christian

On last night I ended a discussion with a former church
member
by telling her that backsliding was not limited to
going to the bar or sleeping with 
her boyfriend.

 

Christian Living - Slipping Backward

You really become a Backsliding Christian anytime you
are not growing deeper in your walk with God. Anytime you
find yourself coasting thru life rather than maintaining
battle ready condition.

Fact is, we are on a battle ship in Christian Life not a cruise
ship of human existence. When I saw this article showing
some key areas we can look at to decide if we are slipping
back into a position of complacency in our Christian

Christian Living: Should An Opposite Sex Christian Single Couple Be Ministry and Prayer Partners?

 

Recently I was asked about the propriety of a Christian single man and a Christian single woman being prayer partners and ministering together.

I had to admit that at one time, before marriage 23 years ago, my best friend hailed from my home area and was working on her MBA in Texas. Although, we were very close friends, nothing inappropriate ever happened.

Nonetheless, the results could have been much different. I don't think we realized until after I was married how much we really cared for each other.

The truth is that the anointing will make anyone more appealing. So even the anointing to pray can generate an attraction that can go over the limits. Remember, the devil would love nothing better than to contort something good into a disgrace within the body of Christ.

With that said, my answer to the young lady went like this: There are only 2 questions that have to be answered here.

The First is, What is the Spirit of God saying to you about this relationship? The Second is, does what you are hearing from God, conform to His Word? They must be in agreement.

Regardless, of how they may proceed, I thought the following guidelines used by Rick Warren's Saddleback Church were excellent. Even if they choose to proceed they will be well served by following the limits set by these boundries.

Avoiding sexual temptation in the church office

Every church pastor rubbing elbows with an attractive secretary, ministry leader, or vivacious volunteer needs to know they’re bouncing on a high diving board over a pool with no water in it.
