Purity Culture in the SDA Church

2021.05.06 09:47 Otterhere__ Purity Culture in the SDA Church

Hi Everyone,
I recently heard a purity message in an SDA church which called for individuals to stop having sex before marriage, leave abusive relationships where sex was happening and commit to no sex before marriage. The speaker likened sex to sticky tape. Meaning you loose your stickiness when you have sex with multiple people and you won’t be emotionally available (sticky) when you get married.
After this I started been reading on the topic of purity culture and reflecting on my own experience growing up in the SDA Church.
My experience in the church included being told, “No sex before marriage, don’t ask about sex, don’t talk about sex, and don’t think about sex..” Anything before marriage (including masturbation) was seen as a sin. Sex was seen as sinful. For women they had to be modest and not draw too much attention from men. I remember women who had children before marriage were shunned and they didn’t feel welcome returning. Anyone living together and unmarried were seen as living in sin. Women were seen as emotional and not desiring sex and men were seen as only sexually driven. My ideas surrounding a lot of this has changed as I have grown up, experienced life, relationships, marriage and listened to other’s stories. I have noticed that the teaching of my childhood and teens have really affected my relationships in negative ways.
It got me thinking:
Has any one else experienced purity culture in the adventist church?
If you experienced purity culture how is it effecting you today? (only answer if you feel comfortable sharing)
What do you think the sexual ethic (moral principles) is of the SDA church?
Do you think the purity movement should be taught in SDA churches? Why/why not?
Are there alternatives to purity culture that could be taught to young people?
For those who don’t know: purity culture is the idea/movement that sex outside of marriage is a sin. Some people take the idea further to say that every sexual activity - from masturbation to kissing - can make one less pure. They advocate that even sexual thoughts and feelings can make one impure. It is also implied that the sexual thoughts, feelings and actions of others can be signs of your impurity as well (Because you did something you make them think or feel, or do what they did).

2021.05.06 09:47 Joesacre Questions I Have About Hunt Showdown

Howdy Hunters,
Hey guys, first post here so bear with me. I have a few questions I think could easily be covered by you guys.

  1. How many people are in a game of Hunt?
I've always thought it was twelve, but in some games, I don't come across many people and there aren't many gunshots, so I don't think they're all dead. Is it the same amount of players if there are trios as if it was just duos?
  1. What's the best way to get more money?
Some games I leave with literally 300 dollars, even when I've had a good run, is there something I'm doing wrong? Should I be looting compounds (e.g. searching for posters and tills) or should I be doing something else? I have seen some screenshots of some people's extract stats on here and they've got thousands.
  1. What is the best shotgun/rush class?
I have tried sniping and rifles, but my preferred playstyle is just running into compounds and blasting hunters in the face, My friend uses the King&Crown but I think it's too expensive. I was using the Spectar 1882 but I had a bad spree with it so I started using the Caldwell Rival 78 which I am enjoying. Any suggestions for secondaries and utilities?
  1. Should I prestige?
I have been level 100 for a few weeks now, I don't really see the point in prestige, can anyone enlighten me?
  1. Are the spawn points always the same?
Do people always spawn at the same points? I'm assuming not due to people just rushing towards spawns but I'm not sure.
  1. Any extra tips you wish you'd known in your first 100 hours of hunting?
Any extra tips you have for me? Still fairly new in the grand scheme of things so any tips help.

Appreciate you guys taking the time to respond to this.
*Tips Cowboy Hat
Thanks in advance for the help, see you on the Bayou, Happy Hunting 🤠

2021.05.06 09:47 prettytrash [TOMT] [MOVIE] Female writer goes to a Italian island?

Disclaimer: It is NOT under the tuscan sun. I remember watching this movie about 5-10 years ago. It’s about a lady who goes on a buisness trip with her husband to a small island in Greece/Italy/Spain and while she is there she meets a younger guy while on a historical building trip? She ends up cheating on her workaholic husband with the yoinger guy and doing romantic things like watching the sunset on the beach! I also remember a little dinner scene, and she wore his shirt after she slept with him and his house had a small door? Also at the end of the movie she decided to catch the train and read/write a book while leaving both men at the train station?
Please help! I’ve googled everything I can about this movie but the only thing that comes up is Under the Tuscan sun (great movie with alot of similarities) but it is most definitely not this movie
