But that does not negate the fact that there is one singular Antichrist coming....
You are confused to speak kindly. Your understand is nothing more than what E. W. Bullinger's Companion Bible teaches. This is not to judge your love for God's word, just your understand of it. There will not be a single antichrist coming, but MANY. Now, would you like to discuss this more?

Somebody please tell me he did not just say I see no erred structure of the Roman Church...

He did, and he made his choice. No point continuing the debate about it.

yes, we all have free choice.  God gives us the option, but never forces us.  I must say, it took an awful thump in my life for me to see the light (literally).  It is sad that so many wait until that horrible experience in their life that sends them in search of something that will cause life to make sense to them again.  I pray more will find Him before their lives are ripped apart - Christ is a free gift from God.  We just have to accept Him with our hearts.

Where in the word of God is there one named "The Antichrist"? John speaks of many antichrists who had come in his own day, by which he said they knew that it was (then) the last hour. True or false?

Some people are not blessed to live in geographical areas where cattle and fowl can be raised and farmed for consumption, they may not be able to grow crops that we can commonly purchase at our grocers, and to make matters worse much of the world is without a fresh water supply. People need to eat, hence the many cultural variations of food, it may not appeal to us but God has said that all creatures are good for food.

Sorry to hear about the continued rough times.
I'm glad that you saw the counselor.
It is true that a lot of relationships are "unfair".
One person is often the "giver" and the other is more the "taker".
In counseling, you can ask for her to work on these things.
In the end, to stay, you will probably have to accept this is a way to serve your wife.
I've prayed for you today.

I know everyone has an opinion on this, but I really think that Romans 14 should be our guiding principal in this case
I fully agree.  Brother, I thank you for your touching testimony.  We all have a precious gift from our God, called in the scriptures...conscience , and every ones is not the same, and neither should we expect everyone to be as we are, and do what we do, and think the way that we do. I refuse to judge another man's conscience, and I will not allow another to judge mine and force me to do as he does. Now, that being said, I will never use my liberty in front of another brother who has different convictions than I do~example: I would never drink a beer or anything type of drink that may offend my brother; any other liberty that I believe I have, that another brother does not feel the same about it, then I would never take the liberty to do whatever I desire to do, in front of my brother. Neither would I ever look down upon another brother for what he believes, or does not believe, if it is a matter of liberty, and many things do fall under this. I do not go to movies, but would never judge a person if they desire to go. My wife like certain movies, but I have yet to find one that I like.  So I ask my grandsons to take her! Clothing is a liberty that one has~there are no set standards in the scriptures, as long as there is moderation practice. Wearing make up is a liberty. Where we send our children to school is a liberty, that we cannot judge our brother concerning.  Private, public, or home schooling.  The list is endless.  So, we must practice:

This is for clarity and the spreading of truth.
With respect, you are not spreading the truth~not only have you been taught wrong, but are spreading doctrine that is not true. In light of the NT we as New Covenant believers and living on this side of the New Covenant, we know why God gave such commandments to Israel after the flesh. In Acts chapter ten and 1 Timothy 4, both places reveal truth to us, that Israel under Moses' law did not enjoy and neither knew the signification as to why they could not eat certain type of meats. The reason why Israel could not eat certain types of creatures was to teach them that they could not live as the Gentiles lived....certain creatures were a type for the then time being, of the unclean Gentiles, and thereby had to keep them themselves from living as those Gentiles dogs~not that the creatures themselves were worst than other creatures, only that God had purpose to use certain creatures to help Israel to see that they were different than other nations, having laws given by God to teach them that. But, there was a mystery about to be unfolded in the NT, and that mystery is clearly seen in Acts chapter ten. The unclean Gentiles, (who truly were no different than the Jews by nature), were going to be made pure by the blood of Jesus Christ, and brought into the fold of God, by the same grace and mercy that had been shown to Israel first.

Under the NT every creature of God are good......for food; and should be taken and used for that purpose, at all times, without distinction; even every creature which is made for food, and which is easy to be discerned by men: and nothing to be refused; or rejected as common and unclean, or to be abstained from at certain times: if it be received with thanksgiving: if not, persons are very ungrateful, and very unworthy of such favours; and it would be just in God to withhold them from them; and this they may expect at his hands, who reject them with contempt, or receive them with unthankfulness, or abstain front them in a religious way he never enjoined. The reason why all creatures are safe to eat is that:  it is sanctified,.... Or set apart for use, and may be lawfully used at all times: by the word of God; which declares that there is nothing in itself common, or unclean, or unfit for use, and that nothing that goes into a man defiles him; so that by virtue of this word of God, every creature may be made use of, that is fit for food: or else this designs the word of God, which gives a blessing to what is eaten; for it is not by bread or meat only, but through the word of God commanding a blessing on what is eaten, that man lives, Matthew 4:4.

A lot of people get confused about pauls teachings and think some of this stuff no longer applies, but this is why you have to have read the old testament else one will see pauls (as well as many new testament scriptures in general) in a way that they shouldn't having bent them to their on destruction. This is stuff most churches will not talk about (as well as many other things).

Actually the NT explains the hidden truths/mysteries of the OT, not the other way around. Paul and the NT writers will guide us faithfully into the truths of God, if we have eyes and ears to see and understand, if not, then a Pizza with all the works would be off limits, but we who understand know otherwise, that we are free to eat whatsoever we desire to eat, as long as we do not do so with the blood of the animals, which is the life thereof.

This prophecy lets us know that from hence forth, anything concerning what we eat is not saying we can eat anything we want(i don't see how people could possibly eat mouse or dolphin and stuff like that anyways ugh).
You are wrong~you can eat flipper if you so desire, as long as we do so with prayer. Now, there are a lot of creatures that I personally will pass on, only because they do not seem to pleasant to me, and for no other reason. A mouse certainly would be one of them, along with snakes, alligators, turtles, squirrels, and many others, but I would NEVER judge a brother or sister if they desire a bowl of squirrel soup, or whatever. Some people like fish eyes...I'll pass!  I am sure that that great sheet that Peter saw, had everything on it, much that I would not eat, nevertheless, my taste is not to be the standard for other men, to eat, or not to eat.

those would be the prayers of those who believe His word - and pray directly to God thru Christ.  Not those who 'pray' to someone else. God gave us Jesus  to be our direct mediator with Him.  He does not give us a list of multiple 'mediators' to use.  Believers follow what He says,  they don't make up their own rules, follow the 'rules' of their friends or earthly leaders that are not in compliance with His word. He tells us to beware of others who say they are the Christ.  Christ does not need an earthly 'stand in'.  He is capable of handling it all.  No one else (or other thing)  can 'stand in'  for Christ in our lives.  Only one died for us - that is who we are to follow.
These words are true and faithful!

Abusive, unfaithful, you weren't with the Lord at the time, if what you say is true I think you're good. Seriously if the dude cheated on you, he broke the vow, you're not obligated to stay, the Lord did say "unless by unfaithfulness."
