If you chooose mostly A's, you are a lifelong companion like tomoyo Daidouji from CardCaptor Sakura. Since the day you met your friends, you clicked instantly and its been impossible to tear you apart. In some ways, you're even closer to your friends than their own brothers and sisters! You may not have many friends but the ones you have mean the world to you. It may be hard to make friends with you because your circle is very tightly-knit. Try to meet other people - you don't have to give up your old friendships to make new ones. You j ust might make another lifelong companion!

If you chose mostly B's, you are a partner-in-crime like Ban Mido or Ginji Amano from Get Backers, You and your friends are always fooling around. You call each other names and you love to argue about the silliest things - so loudly that people watching think you're really angry! And that's the problem: You forget that there's a proper time and place for everything, including having fun. Behave when you're in mixed company so you and your friends won't get embarassed when accidents happen.

If you chose mostly C's, you are a social animal like Nokoru Imonoyama, Souh Takamura and Akira Ijyunin from Clamp School Detective. You have a large group of friends from all walks of life because you enjoy interacting with and learning from such a wide range of people. The biggest thrill of your life is going to parties, where all their individual personalities meet and gather. The problem with having so many friends is that there's only so much of you to go around - you might sure treat each of your friends equally so that none of them will get jealous.

If you chose mostly D's, you are a lone wolf like Yamato Ishida from Digimon Adventure. You're not much of a talker and you don't enjoy going out. This doesn't mean that you're uncaring or you don't like people - you just enjoy your privacy. Unfortunately, not everyone will understand that , make an effort to be nice and say "Hi" next time you meet someone. You never know when you'll need a friend.

Marriage... Is what?

In the movie "The Princess Bride", our family always laughs when it gets to the part where the man of the cloth says, in his pompous, haughty way, "Marriage... is what brings us together today."

Who would have ever thought that in our society we'd be saying, "Marriage is what tears us apart today"? A firestorm of controversy has erupted over the simple concept of marriage. Widely divergent views on the nature of marriage are dividing perople into two very different camps. Perhaps it would be good for those of us who have committed ourselves to living by the standards and the principles of the Bible to review what this God-breathed book says about marriage.

"Adam said, "This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she was taken out of man; For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh"

Marriage is God's plan for a woman and a man

Why did God created us?

Have you ever wondered why God made you or why he made people at all? well, it wasn't because he needed us. And he didn't make us because he was lonely. Long berfore we were here, God the Father already had "company" with his Son and the Holy Spirit. All of God's needs for companionship are met within the Trinity. He also didn't make us because he needed people to tell him how great he is. God is totally secure in who he is -- and he always been.

Despite not needing us, God chose to create us anyway, out of his great love. Yes, God loved usbefore he even created us. This concept is bigger than our tiny brains, but it's true; that's what "everlasting" love means. God is love and becauseof that love and his wonderful creativity, he made us so we can enjoy all that he is and all that he's done.

Because of the deep love God has for you, you will always have at least one unfailing friend! Maybe he's not flesh and blood and waiting at your locker for you after class. But that's part of what's so cool about God. He's a friend who is with you all the time. Whether you're at the cool kid's party or just at home alone, God is always right there with you. The God of the universe is just waitng to spend time with you. Hey, have a blast hanging out with Him today!

The Great Lies

The following is a list I gave to each of my sons. I call it "The Great Lies of Our Times".

1. I can be like God (the world's longest-running lie).
2. I don't need God.
3. Science has disapproved the existence of God.
4. The Church is outdated and unnecessary.
5. The bible is meaningless in our times.
6. Jesus is irrelevant to modern life.
7. Love is sex (and its revers: Sex is love).
8. "Safely" engaging in promiscuity, homosexuality, and adultery is no threat to my body, soul, or spirit.
9. Maintaining virginity until marriage is unrealistic.
10. Marriage fidelity and commitment are outdated.
11. Sex will make me happy.
12. Material things will make me happy.
13. Fame will make me happy.
14. The world owe me a living.
15. My wroth depends on my wealth, intelligence, skill, and/or physical attractiveness.
156. Allowing myself to be constantly entertained by depictions of human sinfulness (TV movies, video games, books, magazines) is no threat to my soul or spirit.
17. I am better than you.
18. I can get along fine by myself.
19. I can ignore life's rules and not suffer consequences.
20. Liberty means I'm free to do whatever I want.

We are exposed to these lies all the time, but the devil makes sure we seldom hear them expressed in plain and simple terms. He tries to deceive us, yet his lies remain the same.
