    Meaning of love quiz



    The Meaning of Love - from Dr. James Dobsom

    It has been of concern to me that many young people grow up with a very distorted concept of romantic love. They are taught to confuse the real thing with infatuation and to idealize marriage into something it can never be. To help remedy this situation, I developed a brief true or false test for use in teaching groups of teen-agers. But to my surprise, I found that adults do not score much higher on the quiz than their adolescent offspring. The ten-item test is reproduced below for those who would like to measure their understanding of romantic love:

    Beliefs about Love — A Self Quiz

    Please circle the correct answer, true or false:

    1) I believe "love at first sight" occurs between some people. True False
     
    2) I believe it is easy to distinguish real love from infatuation. True False
     
    3) I believe people who sincerely love each other will not fight and argue. True False

    4) I believe God selects one particular person for each of us to marry, and he will guide us together. True False

    5) I believe if a man and woman genuinely love each other, then hardships and troubles will have little or no effect on their relationship. True False

    6) I believe it is better to marry the wrong person than to remain single and lonely throughout life. True False

    7) I believe it is not harmful to have sexual intercourse before marriage if the couple has a meaningful relationship.   True False

    8) I believe if a couple is genuinely in love, that condition is permanent — lasting a lifetime. True False

    9) I believe short courtships (six months of less) are best. True False

    10) I believe teen-agers are more capable of genuine love than are older people. True False

    "Lord I'm Coming Home" or "The Orange Barrel Song"



    by Smokey the Dog 09/29/08

    The other night I was listening to the gospel song “Lord I’m Coming Home” on the Internet radio station “All Quartets Radio” and the refrain is as follows.

    Refrain:

    Coming home, coming home, Never more to roam, Open wide Thine arms of love, Lord, I’m coming home.

    And I was thinking, “That’s fine as far as it goes. “ I mean I really like the song, but in reality the minute I or anyone else makes a statement like that we’re asking for trouble. Old Satan immediately gets on his cell phone and contacts the Hellish Highway Department. “Hey guys! Someone wants to “come home!” Get out there pronto with the orange barrels and the detour signs!”

    Fortunately we don’t have to worry about confusing Google or Mapquest directions, or GPS coverage. We have God’s instruction manual the Bible. And just like all instruction manuals they are no good unless you read them!

    OOPS MY BAD!



    I was notified that my previous post has bad math. Sorry I trusted the person I got it from, and he trusted the person he got it from. the figure is closer to 3 thousand not 3 million.
