The transition from religious reprobate to repugnant demoniac appears to be a simple process and the distance between them is minimal. Satan has complete power over these sinners who live without God's shield.
"Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?"
"2Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;"
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire."
In N.Y. state one is on a Quixotic task on controlling abortion, pro-abortionists might shoot back and there are more of them. But anti-abortionists can have wins.

Among his commitments to pro-lifers, President-elect Donald Trump has promised to sign the National Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
"A landmark law [was] passed by the Nebraska legislature (44-5) and signed into law in 2010. For the first time in any state legislature, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act prohibits abortion after 20 weeks gestation except when the mother has a condition which so complicates her medical condition as to necessitate the abortion of her pregnancy to avert death or irreversible physical impairment."---Cato Institute on Abortion
Prior to using linked worksheet, know THIS position: 1) Governments have the authority to use lethal force in more circumstances than do civilians. 2) The Bible's escalation of force principle prohibits civilian use of lethal force if less force could suffice. 3) Civilians may use lethal force defending innocent life against threats of imminent harm.
If true, these principles do not prohibit the use of civil disobedience to prevent abortions. Linked worksheet, however, concludes that those who kill, advocate, or even defend the intentional killing of abortionists are morally wrong. Some of those who defend such killings complain that others are unwilling to seriously address their position. To any such, this challenge goes out: take the time and courage to answer these questions, &then email your answers and contact information to [email protected] or send them to ARTL, 1535 Grant Street #303, Denver CO 80203.
Definitions-terms used in link- â—Ź Threat: consider all threats herein to be life-threatening, unjust, fully credible threats. â—Ź Lethal Force: where lethal force is called for below, lesser force would be insufficient to save innocent life. â—Ź Governmental Authority: refers to authority God has delegated govs -Civilian Authority: actual civilian authority
"R.C. Sr. says the biggest mistake of the Evangelical church is "their silence." Picketing abortuaries "may have some value," but that "wouldn't be my way." Instead, R.C. Sr. says he'd picket liberal churches that are pro-abortion. He thinks that would have "more impact (since) here is where the liberal undermines his liberalism." - from http://baylyblog.com/blog/2011/01/rc-sproul-sr-abortion-pastors-dont-want-touch-it
If you want proof that Steve R is what he's been called, then you go through his comments. If you have frequented these boards much at all, you should know how he defends the RCC.
Click on the magnifying glass next to his moniker and read through all he has said. Here is one example, the rest is left up to you to find on your own... "Glad you recognize Head KJV translator Desiderius Erasmus, a Roman Catholic, was a Godly learned man"
He considers one who is a 'Roman Catholic' to be a 'Godly learned man'.
Well, well, the article that SA referenced has disappeared--but the article it referenced hasn't.
Michael D. Tanner wrote: Contrary to stereotypes, there is no evidence that people on welfare are lazy. Indeed, surveys of welfare recipients consistently show their desire for a job. But there is also evidence that many are reluctant to accept available employment opportunities. Despite work requirements included in the 1996 welfare reform, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says less than 42 percent of adult welfare recipients participate in work activities nationwide. Why the contradiction?
Perhaps itâ€™s because, while poor people are not lazy, they are not stupid either. If you pay people more not to work than they can earn at a job, many wonâ€™t work.
All I am saying is post something that shows he is a Roman Catholic shill/troll/pest.
BTW I am name was 2 Cor 10:6. Also I am a Reformed Presbyterian. That is why when I look at this kind of stuff I think about how (not saying you guys are) Roman Catholic are the same as Baptist.
Here is a quote from Scott Oliphint and William Edgar in their book called Christian Apologetics past and present in chapter 18 titled "Van Till"
It has already become plain that this implies a refusal to grant that any area or aspect of reality, any fact or any law of nature or of history, can be correctly interpreted except it be seen in the light of the main doctrines of Christianity. But if this be true, it becomes quite impossible for the apologist to do what Roman Catholics and Arminians must do on the basis of their view of Christianity, namely, agree with the non-Christian in his principles of methodology to see whether or not Christian theism be true.
Sin is sin, however; As Paul has stated through the letter of Ephesians 5:3, there simply must not even be a hint of sexual impurity among God's people. Not, a hint, that alone should remind us we are in a filthy world and as Christians, we cannot be seen as acting unredeemed or as in our former lives.

two that occur in the largest volume: delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly referred to as THC, and cannabidiol, known as CBD.
Tinctures with only CBD are not the same as THC smoke- as different as the rope of hemp that might hang someone.
CBD is the second most common cannabinoid in cannabis and the most common in hemp plants. CBD can generally represent 0.1-12 percent of the cannabinoid content of the the plant. CBD rich cannabis (4% or more) provides potent therapeutic benefits without the euphoria or lethargy of many high THC varieties.
-- Tho synergy w/THC might be possible, purified CBD use for pain avoids many deleterious potentialities of THC. -- Cannabidiol (CBD) found in cannabis helps with pain and does not make patients feel â€śstonedâ€ť. After years in which only high-THC Cannabis has been available, CBD-rich strains are now being grown for medical users -- so sloppy generics confuse the issue- A strict division between recreational vs medical use includes a strict division of CBD from THC type derivatives. -- Don't get "hung up" on hemp by tripping (sic) up in what type it is
"He is a roman catholic shill/troll/pest who by his own admission delights in coming on here and causing controversy." - indeed sister. He one of many trolls who come here to be divisive and cause controversy. These trolls spew out their evil agendas, like ecumenism and the liberal political agenda, both of which originate with the enemy of God's elect. They are pests, and that is their intention

Lethal force in a park to save a child is just. Why is it wrong against an abortionist?
The late abortionist George Tiller was the most recent and notorious of the four abortionists killed in America, after Barnett Slepian, John Britton, and David Gunn. God has granted everyone the right of self defense to use an escalation of force up to lethal action to protect oneself and one's neighbor from unjust, imminent harm. Of course abortionists have unjustly slaughtered countless innocent children. Yet American Right To Life does not condone the murder of Tiller but we are thankful that he will never kill another child. The typical abortionist kills more than four people by lunchtime, yet the vigilantes who killed these abortionists were unjustified.
This worksheet uses the principles which establish the right of self defense &at the same time condemn vigilantism &the killing of abortionists. Jesus observed that those who live by violence will perish by violence (Mat. 26:52) as the New Testament further states, "He who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword" which command is described as "the faith of the saints" (Rev. 13:10). Widespread injustice like slavery, the holocaust, and abortion undermine tranquility..
Hi Mr. Brown, interesting question. Obviously, there is a stark contrast between the old and new covenants and I always stick with the new for any questions concerning morality and Christian living, and behavior, etc. when I can. I can refer to a couple of passages, among others, which refer to non-violence, such as, Matthew 5:38,39, and Romans 13:1,2 the latter of which would speak more specifically to the threads topic, I think. Then again, I could point to Jesus making a whip of cords to drive out the money changers in the temple courts. Then, there's the issue of self defense which can be a hot topic around here as thoughts on it are divided. Anyway, be interesting to read other thoughts.
It has been said of some one below that there are no good examples of where violence was used to stop children from being killed. I agree we must use the bible to support our beliefs and our actions. I do know of a verse which has a prophet use the sword to kill.
I Samuel 15:33 And Samuel said, As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the LORD in Gilgal.
So is using violence justified in certain scenarios? If so which ones? I am not promoting killing of any one but if abortion is murder, wouldn't we be justified in using some amount of physical force to stop a murder? We are called to defend the defenseless and who is more defenseless than the unborn? I was once asked by a very liberal professor why I didn't do more to stop abortion if I thought it was murder because many people would step in if they were walking down the street and saw someone being attacked.
Is it ever ok to use violence or physical force as a Christian?
KJV is Superior Because It is Based on the Preserved Text All Christians should believe in the inspiration &preservation of Scripture (2 Tim 3:16, Ps 12:6). Jesus used the OT Scripture during His earthly ministry, &considered every word of it to be inspired. In Matt 5:18, He said, â€śTill heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.â€ť This surely implies that the Hebrew Scriptures have been preserved through the centuries, to the extent that every bit of it has been left intact. If God has so providentially preserved the words of the OT Scriptures so that none of them is lost, will He not also preserve the NT Scriptures in the same way? Based on Godâ€™s promises, we can say with good reason that we have the autographs of the NT in the wealth of extant manuscripts available today. Most of the extant NT manuscripts are of the Byzantine or Majority text-type which is well represented by the Textus Receptus. The rest of the manuscripts belong to the Alexandrian or Minority text-type, and are reflected in the Critical Text of Westcott/Hort, UBSGNT, and NANTG. Majority Text is the Preserved Text&the Minority Text, the Corrupt Text. Also-KJV Superior Because of Its Godly &Able Translators
