comment How can one tell if God is in favor of a modern value or not?
@SamuelHulick: Specifically, which passsages of Scripture do you mean? It is difficult to answer specific issues without references.

comment Is saying “Oh My God” really using God's name in vain?
Not only is the phrase using God's name in vain, but it needlessly offends other people, is therefore not loving and is therefore offensive to God on those grounds, too. If you want to get over the habit, I suggest deliberately introducing an inoffensive alternative. "My word!" suffices because it is meaningless AFAIK, or "I'm surprised!" which has the benefit of saying what you actually mean.

comment What are the practical applications of “two will become one flesh”?
@Richard: I quite agree that the verse has nothing whatsoever to say about whether couples should / shouldn't have children, nor about the quality of union between childless / childed couples. Rather, it points to children, who are a physical expression of the depth of union between a man and woman and says that this should give us a clue about God's views on marriage (Jesus is quoting Genesis before the fall where A+E were commanded to multiply).
