Catechism of the Catholic Church
Creating the human race in his own image. God inscribed in the humanity of man and woman the vocation, and thus the capacity and responsibility, of love and communion. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created. It especially concerns affectivity, the capacity to love and to procreate, and in a more general way the aptitude for forming bonds of communion with others. Physical, moral, and spiritual difference and complementarity are oriented toward the goods of marriage and the flourishing of family life. The harmony of the couple and of society depends in part on the way in which the complementarity, needs, and mutual support between the sexes are lived out. The union of man and woman in marriage is a way of imitating in the flesh the Creator’s generosity and fecundity:

If the partner with the insecurity does not address his or her own issues, the result may be an unintended break-up.
I hate how they just up and left me like that. Not only did they experience a breakup, but sometimes they were left for someone else. I try to hear them out every time, because they are genuinely hurting. Sometimes, it is clear as day that they dodged a bullet and God was the one protecting them from going any further in that relationship. Sometimes, God allows it to end in a rough way, and I believe that can be the only way for some people to actually move on.
No one can steal your man or woman away. They do not belong to you, they belong to Christ. There is no ownership at all over them, even when you two are married. The circumstances are a little different in marriage, yes, but you do not own anyone.

Not only that, but men better have the best resume and professional references possible in order to even show up on her radar as a possible candidate. This, of course, is ignoring the fact that most women in churches now who act more like HR departments than sisters-in-Christ are totally unprepared and unqualified to be good wives and mothers. In no way does it guarantee a loving, respectful, submissive, Christian wife who wants to please God by honoring me as her husband.
We are also accountable to our congregation, our staff, our spouse, our children, our denomination, and the beliefs of our denomination.
Polycarp was martyred c. But Polycarp also was not only instructed by apostles, and conversed with many who had seen Christ, but was also, by apostles in Asia, appointed bishop of the Church in Smyrna, whom I also saw in my early youth, for he tarried [on earth] a very long time, and, when a very old man, gloriously and most nobly suffering martyrdom, departed this life, having always taught the things which he had learned from the apostles, and which the Church has handed down, and which alone are true.
To these things all the Asiatic Churches testify, as do also those men who have succeeded Polycarp down to the present time, a man who was of much greater weight, and a more stedfast witness of truth, than Valentinus, and Marcion, and the rest of the heretics. He it was who, coming to Rome in the time of Anicetus caused many to turn away from the aforesaid heretics to the Church of God, proclaiming that he had received this one and sole truth from the apostles, that, namely, which is handed down by the Church.
There are also those who heard from him that John, the disciple of the Lord, going to bathe at Ephesus, and perceiving Cerinthus within, rushed out of the bath-house without bathing, exclaiming, “Let us fly, lest even the bath-house fall down, because Cerinthus, the enemy of the truth, is within. Then, again, the Church in Ephesus, founded by Paul, and having John remaining among them permanently until the times of Trajan, is a true witness of the tradition of the apostles.
Irenaeus also mentions Polycarp in his letter to Florinus. These opinions, Florinus, that I may speak in mild terms, are not of sound doctrine; these opinions are not consonant to the Church, and involve their votaries in the utmost impiety; these opinions, even the heretics beyond the Church’s pale have never ventured to broach; these opinions, those presbyters who preceded us, and who were conversant with the apostles, did not hand down to thee. For, while I was yet a boy, I saw thee in Lower Asia with Polycarp, distinguishing thyself in the royal court, and endeavouring to gain his approbation.
Whatsoever things he had heard from them respecting the Lord, both with regard to His miracles and His teaching, Polycarp having thus received [information] from the eye-witnesses of the Word of life, would recount them all in harmony with the Scriptures. These things, through, God’s mercy which was upon me, I then listened to attentively, and treasured them up not on paper, but in my heart; and I am continually, by God’s grace, revolving these things accurately in my mind. And I can bear witness before God, that if that blessed and apostolical presbyter had heard any such thing, he would have cried out, and stopped his ears, exclaiming as he was wont to do: This fact, too, can be made clear, from his Epistles which he despatched, whether to the neighbouring Churches to confirm them, or to certain of the brethren, admonishing and exhorting them.
Irenaeus also mentions Polycarp in his letter to Pope Victor.

Children of church members were attending college, only to reject the faith of their parents. Jones later recalled that in , his friend William Jennings Bryan had leaned over to him at a Bible conference service in Winona Lake, Indiana , and said, “If schools and colleges do not quit teaching evolution as a fact, we are going to become a nation of atheists. Jones said that although he had been averse to naming the school after himself, his friends overcame his reluctance “with the argument that the school would be called by that name because of my connection with it, and to attempt to give it any other name would confuse the people.

How do I pray?
How do I pray? These various forms include prayer of blessing or adoration, prayer of petition, prayer of intercession, prayer of thanksgiving, and prayer of praise. As the Catechism states: The mind seeks to understand the why and how of the Christian life, in order to adhere and respond to what the Lord is asking.

May 22, by Pastor Dave Online 7 Comments Dating within the church is risky for the whole church. As the pastor of a young church full of college students I have seen first-hand the real danger that dating within the church poses to the whole assembly. I love our guys and girls and often think that they are good matches. When some relationships fall apart the couple can go their separate ways and work through the break-up apart from each other.
But when you fellowship in the same assembly, when you share the same friends, and attend the same events it can be very difficult. As a young man I dated just about every girl in my church youth group and, in retrospect, saw the damage it did. But as a pastor I see it at a different level and have greater concern over it.
We recently had an awful experience where an engaged couple ended their relationship. You see the reality is that relationships among fellow church members affect the whole church. The church becomes invested in a relationship. Pastors do pre-marital counseling. The church comes to view you as a couple. When a couple breaks-up it can create divisions in the church as friends choose sides. It can lead to isolation as hurt feeling ensue from the fall-out.
