So you would agree if a non-Christian prez practices lawlessness and doesn't become Christian, he will be told this? Good to know.
sane people give their children to the UN for safekeeping.
wonder if you have any respect for the individual fathers out there who care to raise their families in the ways of scripture. you seem to want the children raised by the village, ie the UN... just as long as RCC is not involved. In other words the gay lobby will protect the children of Adam better than the institution of family and marriage as designed by God.
you do realize this is a form of dominionism, don't you?
Christopher, I can certainly empathize with you. I think that you would be very surprised to know what really goes on even amongst the strongest Christian couples regardless of what's on the surface.You do recognize that you shouldn't have married someone who was not a Christian. Of course, God is very clear that we should not be unequally yoked. However, as you stated, the deal is done. God's view of marriage is not the same as the world's. What is most important to God is not our happiness but His conforming us to His Son. If we are obedient and focus on Him, He is very gracious to fill in the gap...really! I realize that living in this culture makes it all the more difficult on married couples...which is why we, all the more, need to put aside anything which would cause us to stumble. Please remember that we walk by faith and not by sight (easier said than done, I will attest). Of course, it will appear that your wife will never change...and she may not but God is trustworthy and if you persevere, you will, ultimately, be better for it and save yourself any regrets that you might incur by "bailing out". If your wife is a RC, she is unlikely saved...but weren't we all prior to Salvation? There is hope! God bless you and yours!
Mike of NY, ah, two things, I really wish you would read the articles I mention It's American and Western countries companies that are benefitting, so what if the oil is shipped to the Far East, e.g., China? On top of that it allows these companies to sale oil they are pumping out of the ground -- or cooking out of oil sands -- to ship that to markets closer to home, which means more profit to them.
No, these people are not Christians, Penny,
Matthew 7 21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. 22 "Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'---NASB
Marty MCD, did you notice that I discounted the ePublication that the article was in, not the article itself?
Mike of N.Y., Magical=Harry Potter, Santa Claus, etc. If you read to the end of the article you would have seen the authoress tossed out a bone to religious folk, they might be more flexible [Unless they're Tea-Party Republicans. ]--she didn't say that, but I had to add that anyway
No, John Y., homeschoolers may have a longer school year, Yeah, you can read this in some of the over the edge reactionary sources, like The Blaze, (Search for "Brainy Bunch") but I'll use a secular one (more reason to believe it isn't propaganda),
Penny, since the first article I listed was upsetting to some folks because of he location, look at the following two articles which had both good and bad things to say about Mr. Farris' controlled organization. His politics reflects badly on the Homeschool Movement. He keeps up his wacky political actions he will start getting homeschools regulated more.

Steve do you support the Palestinians as well as the Roman Catholics?

If you're referring to my ding ding, I think you should know that I support Israel's defence of its borders, and have never said anything different. And there's nothing you can do about that, either.
But as Jesus said to a Jewish teacher once, "Ye must be born again", so he says the same today to men the world over, whether they be in Gaza Strip or Israel or anywhere else. Physical genealogy never did affect God's choice, when he decided to save a people for himself; he chooses people from every nation under heaven, and saves them whenever he chooses through whomever he chooses. These are those elect souls called in Galatians "The Children of Promise".

The link is useless, Jim. There is no definition of "non-fictional characters," "religious characters," or "magical characters." Without knowing who or what Boston University means by these, there is no way to draw any conclusion about "The possible downside of too much religious training." Try again.
