    Responding to the first caller: I don’t understand why you dance around the truth and let the caller know what the Word of God says about fornication. That it is sin. Galatians 6:19-21 ending with those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
    Did not the man ask twice is this a bad thing? And I’m like, what are you waiting for and beating around the bush for ? just say yes it is a bad thing then go into your explanation. I really love your show but I’m starting to see too much compromise and not enough truth. You can speak the truth in love and not condemnation, so please speak the truth.

    Attn Webmaster:

    Why are June 2nd’s Callers’ Questions exactly the same as May 14th’s. Were there a re-run or something???

    Pam, I got to agree with you on that. Yes, it is a sin and the show should have made it plain and should not have sugar coated the truth. First of all, this man has been with this woman for 10 years and they have a son together, they are not married and seem to be very comfortable in the present–not a good thing at all. That is not pleasing to God. Marilyn did suggest that he take this woman to the altar and marry her, their son needs a mother and a father. If the 2 of them are afraid of commitment they need to reconsider a few things, more so the fate of their son. The shows response did irk me today, really.

    In regards to the comments about “dancing around the truth”, God is the ultimate judge.

    Lulu, you are right, God is truly the ultimate Judge and he will surely help us with the consequences of our choices as well as forgive us of our sins.
