Yes, wouldn't it be wonderful if one day the Holy Spirit drew SteveR and gave him and new circumcised heart, from above. Then he wouldn't bash God's true children and support those who in all probability don't belong to our Lord and Savior. I sometimes pray for his salvation and will do so again tonight.
Preach and teach the gospel. Nothing will change a persons life more than the regeneration of new life brought by the gospel. But, if you know anyone considering abortion, get involved in their life to save two lives.
It seems sc has an issue with professional sports and their cheerleaders; somehow everything always revolves around this issue with her. No one here condones scantily clad women, nor do they uphold immoral behavior. BTW, it's news to me that there are naked women cheering for the NBA. SC paints with a broad brush and assumes all here are compromising, sports loving, approving of naked women, lukewarm Christians! How dare she be an accuser of the brethren; however, Satan is an accuser as well. Is it any wonder SteveR sides with sc? Go figure!
Sometimes I get upset with the USA to. Sometimes I wonder if USA is the Babylon of Revelations, specially with all this homosexual agenda we are pushing on everyone it does seem to fit. But you have to keep in mind all us Christians are pilgrims in a foreign land and we don't belong to any country, we live for a Kingdom not of the world. Rev does it describe USA(I hope not) 1. It is a literal place, with lots of wealth and products to sell. Rev. 18:12-13 2. It is a wealthy country that even sells its money (gold & silver). Rev. 18:11-12 3. It is a country that deceives all other countries. Rev. 18:23 4. It spreads its sexual immorality to other countries. Rev. 18:3 5. It lives in luxury. Rev. 18:7 6. It helps others get rich. Rev. 18:19, Rev. 18:3 7. It is â€˜marriedâ€™ to another country. Rev. 18:7 8. It is suddenly and utterly destroyed by fire. Rev. 18:8, Rev. 18:9-10, Rev. 18:17-18 9. It is responsible for many deaths. Rev. 18:24 After one reads of all these debaucheries of USA I can see how one can get upset, especially when we have a lot of things going on with us. I liked your other post, this is why when they brought up those verses I called them events unlike how the Holy Spirit now resides in believers.
Dave has had a lot of things pile up. I'm sure he means what he says, but maybe would have spoke a bit more softly without recent emotional buildup. I've done the same here and there over time, letting the outside effect me and how I would normally say things.
Personally, if a sports franchise threatened to leave my state if the governor signed into law a bill passed by the state legislature protecting pastors from having to perform sodomite weddings, and I was a fan of that franchise, it would take all the desire away from ever rooting for that team again. And no "meat sacrificed to idols" loophole could change that. Although I must admit that since my conversion, my interest in spectator sports has largely vanished. That being said, I must commend the state of NC for not buckling to the entertainment industry. As Christians we live IN the world and are not OF it. We separate from the world. ( 1 Jn. 2:15)

A woman can get pregnant, come home one day, and over dinner, tell the father of the child, "Oh, by the way, I decided to murder our child earlier today". John, when a person is truly born again, and once they begin to study and learn, I would find it highly suspect if they chose to remain even after they become aware of the churches fatal doctrines and traditions that God Himself specifically and very clearly warns us of.
Yes Chris, most don't realize just how far down the feminist road we are. Since they are carrying the baby, they believe it belongs solely to them. They think of it as a health issue and nothing more. Either men don't understand this or don't care.
How is it edifying having stupid arguments like that which you have tried nosey. USA pull your head out of mmm. YOU and your country should be ashamed, and hide your heads when it comes to discussing doctrine, YOU and your countrymen have done more to decimate the gospel than any in history You are the joke of the world. You judge from your high horses in a disgustingly American view, you hold your devilish constitution above everything, GOD included, your nation was birthed by apostate, far from Christ leaders. God help you.
Thank you,SteveR. This is a question which never seems to get a "straight" answer. I do wonder if Christians who do watch pro sports with naked women on them/on the sidelines would also watch the same if the homos were on the sidelines and directly affiliated with their teams. I mean,if the naked women can be ignored by them,why not the sodomites as well? If college teams have what would be deemed naked women on the sidelines...who cares what the relationship is of the team player? Does sin diminish because a family member is involved? If there were sodomite/transgenders affiliated with the team on the sidelines cheering for the team,would this make a difference? Or is it just the naked women which we can so readily justify? Yes,sodomites are confused but even they see that there is a double standard. This nation has desensitized most of us to hetero immorality and lewdness to the point that we don't even blush at it. ...unless someone on SA would actually post what it is...and then-how dare someone speak of such filth? It's good to make the connection between the sodomite agenda and compromise past.
Nosey, if you pay attention to that which you read in the scriptures . Before Christ went up to heaven in acts 1 the HOLY SPIRIT only ever came upon people, the ot is the same. Since then if saved,the HOLY SPIRIT doesn't leave us, he dwells within us.
Most sadly the most dangerous place for a baby to be in, is in the womb of the mother, sadly saying. As it's ever so important to go to Planned Parenthood, to share with the lost, their is hope to be found only in Christ alone amen.
Planned Parenthood is targeting minority neighborhoods. 79% of its surgical abortion facilities are located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.
