The reality is Lori is right...

Lori is just brinigng up a fact that we should be mindful of.. that men and women can easily 'cross the line' even in a professional setting, and so she is merely suggesting to be mindful of it.

Today anything can happen no matter the sex

I totally disagree with this assessment. Only two people of the same sex should be together professionally? It can turn into a same sexual relationship, who knows in this day and age. Just because you think people of the same gender should only be together professionally does not make the relationship free of sin. We cannot be blind to anything today. Please people keep an open mind.

Thank you!

Fabulous! Thank you for your honest & open instruction to honor God with our lives & practical situations in which we find ourselves. It is a delight to hear someone challenge fidelity as the highest good to be protected at all costs. Blessings, Lydia B

Well done! and, Unfortunately very much needed

I have been watching your vids on character development for some time now.
I guess you could say those are the positive/doing parts.
This tape is more the keep away/avoid doing type.
I think your point is very well made, and (as in the subject line), very much needed.
I believe in a certain amount of fate, and agree as well with the, “If the marriage is strong enough…” [Some of the above comments seem, to be going with those ideas]
On the other hand, I very much agree with you.
Don’t we all pray, “And lead us not unto temptation?” shouldn’t we go at least a little bit out of the way to ‘help us, help ourselves?
If you’re on Weight-Watchers you don’t visit the candy store.
If down deep you’re trying to be true (to yourself, to your relationship, to your truest love), doesn’t it seem only right to protect what is REALLY so near and so dear?
Thank you for your sensitive, loving, and needed words!

Each situation is unique

I have had several dentists who are women. I never felt any attraction while sitting in the chair, in pain, with tubes and their various torture devices inserted into my mouth. On the other hand, I managed several female employees, and I had to make an effort to assure that our relationships should remain strictly professional and nothing else.
