More specifically, verse 10 reminds us that "[l]ove does no harm to its neighbor." Romans 14:1-15:7 offers a discourse on favoring weaker brothers and sisters above ourselves, valuing and encouraging that which is good in the souls of others.Bottom line: I believe it is difficult and rare — as a practical matter — to honor these principles in the context of a close, intimate friendship between two single Christians of the opposite sex.They tend to involve a deep knowledge of the other person's hopes, desires and personality.
This show was a blessing to television viewers everywhere.Quote 1 - "We create a place every Sunday night where God's honored" Quote 2 - "God is the show's true executive producer." Ralph Winter has been in Hollywood a long time.This show’s main purpose was to show the reality of angels.Although there were no female angels mentioned in the Bible, as this show portrays, the message was always honoring to God.How intimate of a friendship with someone of the opposite sex is OK? Won't the friendship be ruined if one of us expresses romantic interest and the other doesn't respond favorably?
Basically, the question seems to be how exactly single Christians should relate to members of the opposite sex in that large and awkward zone between "we've never met" and a deliberate dating or courting relationship. I won't repeat the full history lesson here, as several Boundless authors have already discussed it (Joshua Rogers most recently, in his excellent piece "Your Friendgirl Deserves Better").
Ralph teaches a 4 week class titled, “Grow 207: Theology and Film” at Montrose Church, in the Hollywood/Burbank area.
Each week he examines a different film to see how it relates to the Christian faith.
In this series of articles, I've raised several biblical principles regarding the way we should treat our brothers and sisters in Christ.
First Thessalonians 4:1-8 admonishes us not to wrong or "defraud" our brother or sister by implying a marital level of commitment (through sexual involvement) when it does not exist.
Quote - "I have been placed in this job for a purpose, and I am just trying to make great movies and keep my eyes on Him. It is definitely all God's hand that I get to do this. He may choose someone else." It is great to see the men and women out in Hollywood producing quality, Christ-centered, material.
