Last time I appeared on this site, I said that I would lay out my position on biblical dating and then turn it over to all of you to determine the rest of the column's topics by your questions.

So your question should be “what is the obedient thing for me to do in this situation?Adam was neither of those things and he definitely wasn’t a Christian.Adam was raised a secular humanist, a "nonreligous lifestance" that deemphasizes the role a God-like entity plays in a person’s life and emphasizes making good personal decisions.Marriage is the second most important decision anyone ever makes. This matter is so vital that I urge you before reading further to bookmark this webpage and go straight to The Ultimate Love Affair.
