On #7:  That God created life, and used already-created things to bring forth new kinds.

Quote
Michael:
I agree that God created life. But I'd say further that God created life according to its kind, as described in Genesis.

Kinds.   In one sense, since all known life on Earth has more in common genetically than ways by which it differs, there is one kind.   However, God says that from that initial creation, nature produced all sorts of life, as He commanded.

"kinds" it is then. Sorry for the error.

Initial creation? Where do you get this? Not in scriptures, to be sure. It's coming from your scientific mind I guess.

You said "God says that from that initial creation, nature produced all sorts of life, as He commanded."

Well, that is what you say, according only to your interpretation.

I don't want you to! What I am hoping you will do is really search yourself, and ask God to show you what ownership you have in this, and what you may need to do to restore the relationship with her.
I am hoping you will give grace where grace is needed, keep your heart from judging her where there is room for dispute and differences in conviction.
I am hoping that you will see your girl how God does and love her even where she is unlovely in your eyes; like your husband seems to be able to do.
There is a LOT that she is doing right. Maybe you could start being thankful for that, even though it seems so small, and maybe you could tell her what you are proud of in her apart from who she used to be when she was under your authority?

I got that wrong...I try to submit to my husband and love him as the Lord expects.  He is supposed to love as Christ loves the church.  Getting late.

On #6:  That the theory of evolution is consistent with scriptures.

Michael:
I don't see it to be.

Doesn't matter.   The truth is what it is, regardless.    God doesn't say how He created each kind.   So it's an open question theologically.   But the evidence is compelling.   Nevertheless you are no less Christian because of your new interpretation of Genesis.   It makes no difference at all to your salvation, even if you are a YE creationist.

If you do not find evolution consistent with scriptures, would you believe still in the Bible? I hope so. And if you do, what would evolution be to you, being a scientist?

Now, you think that evolution is consistent with scriptures, do you think you now know HOW God created the different kinds of living creatures?

As a Christian, do you believe that creation was subjected to futility? That creation is under the bondage of corruption? That someday creation will be delivered from the bondage of corruption? As a Christian scientist, how does these truths relate to what science call evolution?

Taken captive by worldliness. Gosh, that can mean a zillion different things.
To a friend of mine, it meant that her son swam and got out of the pool without his shirt on. Seriously. They were estranged from him for a time because he was in his 20's and didn't obey when they told him to put his shirt back on, because "he knows how we feel about modesty and he dishonored us!"
To others, it means worshipping in Sunday rather than Sabbath.
I've also heard that PG 13 movies are sinful or that hair that has been cut is worldly.
Is she really caught up in sin, or is it that she is growing up and following her own God driven convictions and they make you uncomfortable?
Tattoos? Social drinking, but not getting drunk? Friends with piercings? All those things can make us older folks squirm, but that doesn't make it sin, or that our kids are taken captive.

MommiDi,

You would agree, surely, that a relationship is a two-way street.  One can only be rebuffed so many times.  So, I sit in the backseat.  But, it will be ok someday.

Taken captive by worldliness, Friend.  We know our offspring. And when she repents, she will have both feet in kingdom work.  You know that attending church once a week can be meaningless.  There is window dressing all around.  She knows better.  One foot in the world. One in the kingdom. So, I wait. 

I think I have a grip on my life.  Our Lord never stops looking for His sheep and a parent never stops looking for the full repentence of her charges. 

I try to obey the Lord and love my husband as Christ loves the church. I try to accept the things I cannot change in my marriage and obey God as He teaches me.  As far as it depends on me, I try to live at peace with all men.  I have a fullfilling ministry teaching adult women.  I have fullfilling and successful job teaching high school students - a gift from God.  I have wonderful sisters with whom I pray about many things.

There is nothing I can do to bridge the gap. 

If my mother felt this way about me, I'd probably distance myself from her.
