Ryan Beitler, a journalist, fiction writer, blogger, musician, foodie, and vicious traveller began wondering why he has always had an innate interest in cultures that are not his own and why he has been driven constantly to put himself out of his comfort zone and furthermore, why others do not share his interest instead meeting other cultures with racism and xenophobia.
He had all kinds of culture sprinkled into his life, and has seemed to have gone to many places. He thinks perhaps the answer to xenophobia, the answer to prejudice, the answer to racism is subjecting children to other cultures to enrich their lives and broaden their perspectives early on.

our little blue rock
Recently, I began wondering why I have always had an innate interest in cultures that are not my own, why I’ve been driven constantly to put myself out of my comfort zone, why I am forever bewildered and stupefied by those who are not like me. Furthermore, why do others not share my interest instead meeting other cultures with racism and xenophobia?
I hadn’t taken seriously the fact that I had grown up with many different cultures, but then I began realizing I had all kinds of culture sprinkled into my life, and I couldn’t imagine my upbringing without them. Perhaps the answer to xenophobia, the answer to prejudice, the answer to racism is subjecting children to other cultures to enrich their lives and broaden their perspectives early on. The friends I’ve had over the years have taught me to open my mind and stay interested in people I am different…

In this article is looked at man having his desires expressed in physical actions. It looks at what man does with his body.
The article also warns us that our lives as Christians should be a living witness to others and that we cannot break the laws of God without hindering others from coming to Christ.
We must live our lives in purity before a sinful and wicked world. We should not be living according to their standards but according to God’s standard in the Bible. No couple should live together outside the bonds of marriage.
It reminds us that
As Christians, the goal of any relationship should be to cause the people in our lives to love and know the Lord better.
Today we may find lots of people just living together to have sexual pleasure, living to please their own lust and selfish desires.
This type of life style is destructive and especially so for children whose parents are living a bad example before them. No wonder our children are confused about right and wrong when parents degrade the sanctity of marriage by living together out of wedlock. How can living together cause children to love and honor God when their parents break the laws of God before them because they are lustful?
The dictionary meaning of the word “fornication” means any unlawful sexual intercourse including adultery.
In the Bible the Greek definition of the word “fornication” means to commit illicit sexual intercourse.
The Bible also lists whore-mongers as fornicators.
What constitutes unlawful sex? Whose laws do we live by? Worldly standards or laws many times do not always line up with the Word of God. The founding fathers of various nations established many laws that were originally based on Christian standards and the laws of the Bible. However, through time they have drifted far from these standards and at the present our moral standards are shocking. Immorality is a world-wide epidemic. Societies throughout history and around the globe have embraced sexual standards that are called sins in the Bible.
The Bible must be our standard of what is right and wrong. We must change our standards if we do not want the wrath of God to fall on us.
Part of a great team but also of gender discrimination
Reactions against those of the other sex
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 & 1 Corinthians 7:1-2
“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”
