A: Of course not! When the Bible states I should not swear, it’s only saying that, “As you see I am not like that!” or “To all this there is no answer” or “The man is a fool.” It doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to swear!

Q: What about the Bible saying we must not eat and drink with wine or you can’t get drunk?

A: Wine and other intoxicants were not prohibited in the Bible! They also were not banned in the New Testament to keep you from sinning against anyone in Acts 14. So this is not a ban!

Q: So are there any restrictions if I don’t like how I’m dressing in front of my friends?

A: The dress code is only to be followed with great care! Not to touch your own hair, not to rub your face on dirty dishes, and not to wear your clothes dirty or covered in filth. Also, not to show your belly button unless you are pregnant!

Q: So when you go out for drinks, would you want to wear a towel underneath your dress or would you want to wear something more provocative?

A: I don’t really care what you wear. However, I love some of the sexy stuff. I love wearing my swim shorts and nothing else underneath. I just thought you should know that I’m a believer!

Q: Okay, so what’s really important is that we keep
