Was it icky way back when it was mostly about whether or not God minds us using sex toys?

Okay, I have been reading this, and I have one question.  I had my tubes tied before I became a Christian, does that mean that I am considered a murderer?

I know that through Jesus I have been forgiven for everything that I have done in my past.  But from what I gather, what I have done is so very wrong.  Had I known that it was wrong, or let me put it this way... if I had been a Christian when I had my son, I never wouldn't have done it.

So does that mean that I am wrong for doing that?  And will I have to answer for that in the end, even though I have already been forgiven for that?

There is nothing--sin or just "I wouldn't have if I'd..."-- that the blood of Christ has not covered in you if you are His.  Keep the faith, lean on His grace, and don't let Satan play the "past" card to bring you down.

‚ÄúDear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.  This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.

And by the way, depending on why you had your tubes tied, it may not have even been a sin.

Indeed.  In any case, don't beat yourself up for things done before you were a Christian.

What does the Bible say about sex toys?

Hebrews 13:4  Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

The marriage bed is honorable and undefiled.  It is there for our pleasure and to express the joy of true love.  God made it all pleasurable for good reasons and it's a sin to waste the precious gifts he gives us.  What kind of a father would give a snake to a hungry child?  Any loving father would give a child good things, and if the earthly fathers have such a good heart for their children, how much more does our heavenly father love us and give us wonderful blessings for our joy and happiness?

The marriage bed is not only undefiled -- its the reward and blessing of marriage.  It is honrable IN ALL.

what was that website again?

PS:

Honorable IN ALL -- to me that means that, as long as you are with your husband or wife, it's pretty much whatever blows yer skirt up!

I agree caroline as long as whatever you are using to blow yer skirt up doesn't become the focus of the activity.

I was thinking about the title of this thread, "is it okay with God if".  In my opinion, that is the wrong question.  Why try to determine what is "acceptable".  What is acceptable with God is not always what is best.  Instead of asking, "Is it okay with God if...", why not ask "How can I best line my life up with God and allow him to get the most glory in this area of my life".  That question leads to the best answer, and not just something that is "okay".

    I like that response very much.
    I've had people tell me that "if you have to reason or think through it" you probably shouldn't engage in it. That was awhile ago, I don't know if there is Scripture to back that up.

ah, but the majority of our "doctrines" involve ... "a desire to reason and think through it"....
Certainly, if your concience screams "GUILT" then at least a biblical clarification for that feeling of guilt should be explored.  Some could eat meat and others could not for concience sake for example.  Maybe this subject is similar.   One thing seems clear, if both are comfortable with what is going on, then neither feels violated or minimized.  Lovemaking starts long before the bed and when the physical cresendos from the spiritual oneness,  it can be quite.... fun.....exciting....pleasurable.....  It is a form of communication.
