Thank you for taking time out

of your many things to help me. Please do not rush to answer today either this reply left today or the one left earlier this morning.

I have read twice and will read again. Not because I don't understand, but because I want the words to sink in.

Please know, it is not my goal to discredit. Remember bear? Bear learns by asking questions and more and more questions arise until bear understands and can form an opinion based upon the answers and reasoning. It is very hard for me to separate non-monogamist relationships from lust in my own mind.

Here are some "rules" for Believers. Paul is careful to say some of it is his own opinion:

I Corinthians 7:6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment [from the Lord]. 7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. 9 But if they cannot contain [sexually], let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. 10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: 11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.

I cannot understand this:

“A saying goes like this: Anarchy is not "no laws", or no "rules", anarchy is no rulers.”

So does that mean that each individual makes their own personal laws and rules and there are no governing rules to keep people from infringing on other people?

Remember, I am not asking to discredit. I am asking because I have questions and I cannot understand yet.
