Do you agree with me that nowadays it's very hard to have relationship with someone who doesn't wanna have sex outside marriage?

I'm at the point thinking that relationship only draws me far away from God. What to do if you meet someone like this? Break your relationship?

These days, there are even misguided people who practice spouse-swapping ("swinging") and claim that God is okay with it, and they call it a form of evangelism.

Just putting the label "Christian" on something doesn't automatically make it Christian, especially when that something is "ChristianSwingers.com".

Christianity is nothing more than a big joke to many.  Then again, perhaps this is a good thing.  It shows us just how problematic personal interpretations can be.
Das ist des Jägers Ehrenschild, daß er beschützt und hegt sein Wild, weidmännisch jagt, wie sich’s gehört, den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt.

Very! I was shocked when i read their interpretation. That's something i'd never even thought of.

Yeah, I don't believe in evolution to much either.

Me neither

how could a good Christian ever be liberal? I don't understand that part.

The big question of the forum. Good it didn't come from me. :D
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

FWIW, if your right hand causes you to sin cut it off.  Then again, you can always not sin with your right hand.  Works too.

(That said, I don't say this entirely flippantly as I know what a struggle it can be.)

I don't think anybody is going to literally cut of their hand ...

No, they're not.
