Luke 17:26 Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.---ESV
Oh, they can keep doing the above, but unlike the flood there will be destruction from nuclear wars, and that will drop the population down drastically. Those who are left won't be worrying about climate change, though there will be plenty of that too.
Wayfarer I've thought about your comments specifically, " If we believe that the baby killed is a human being, then I think that the revulsion of seeing their dead body is disrespectful to the loss of their life in an abortion mill."
If you are reading this, I assume you suggest we not show these images because it is disrespectful to the person having their dead corpse flaunted like that, you can correct me if I'm wrong, but that's where I'll work from.
First of all we would have to see what the scriptures say....based on that...let me reserve judgment, I'm leaning towards saying that it's wrong that is to say, I'd agree with what you've said, let me think on it further.
John 8:44 KJV Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Romans 1:22, 25 KJV Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
This is where evolutionary philosophy gets you, it's deadly and they are willingly ignorant of it.
John Uk, your post gets a big amen from me about the church being made up of God's family and He is happy when we show love toward one another. The Bible says that the Holy Spirit can be grieved. Our Sunday School lesson is on 1Peter 3 and it has brought to once again how we as Christians should conduct ourselves to each other and those that are not of the faith. The Bible is our instructions on living the Christian life. Sure spoke to my heart this week.
Murder would be the first, Genesis 9:6 "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man."
So if I were to kill someone, by the law of God I should be killed, and rightly so, God is the Creator of the universe therefore He makes the rules, and His rule is if you murder someone your punishment is death.
True Christians aren't glad that 50 gay people were murdered, and true Christians don't want gay people killed just because they are gay. They want them to be saved, and go to Heaven.
Would you like for me to expound on the topic, I will be happy to do so.

That is not true, you are generalizing, I do hope that on this Christian forum that we not accuse falsely, nor say things we shouldn't or act uncivilized, God's not pleased when we do that, neither are the moderators.
In the public schools they teach evolution, and that gives me reason enough to not send little Jr. There because it will shape his worldview, they teach that we are an accident, we are animals, death brought man into the world, and that's going to have a devastating effect on a young boy, whereas in homeschooling the parents have the opportunity to teach a godly worldview to their child, and teach them how to debunk evolution.
I don't know what the culture is like over there in Greece, but here it's open to the things of God however something that is on the rise, and it will be a big problem for our young people, is atheism, it's gaining followers and people are saying that the universe came from nothing, that we live in a more interesting form of nothing, etc. And it's slowly gaining popularity because it gets rid of God and therefore morals.
And that's what I'm afraid of in putting our children there, in war there are some places you don't go sometimes, this I believe is one of them. If you disagree with me on anything or have a question about something go ahead and ask. God bless you sister, praying for you.
Andrea, thanks for the prayers, doing well sister, and thank you that you pray for us Yankees (Americans) we certainly need it, it is sad that we do have food stamps for even fast food places, so we've got a lot a work to do over here.
I would like to point out something you said,
"So,really if all Christians are homeschooled then state schools are open to Muslims,pro abortionists,communists,murderers etc because the salt and light is not there."
I am focusing my afternoon bible study on Matthew 5:3-12 and I'm not reading the salt and light part yet, but your statement here is an actions have consequences fallacy, a lot of the characteristics you described it has already penetrated the schools with Christians inside the public school system.
Please don't get me wrong sister I'm not trying to mock you or any evil of the sort, you know more about America than I do about Greece, and again I do thank you for praying for us, but I think a lot of the problems we have today has been accumulating over many generations.
s c from Oh writes: The article reads SHE is "non-binary". Hmmm Logic escapes them
Hadn't caught that, SC. Yeah, pretty crazy stuff, and isn't really just beyond incredible that ine single person on this planet takes any of this at all seriously? I chalk it all up to the rise of the sodomites to power after being given the go ahead to marry each other. Just look at the snowball effect. No turning back now, and I always wonder what's next...
Jehoiakim Burnt Jer 36: 20And they went in to the king into the court, but they laid up the roll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and told all the words in the ears of the king. 21So the king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll: and he took it out of Elishama the scribe's chamber. And Jehudi read it in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes which stood beside the king. 22Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him. 23And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth..,, 27Then the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, after that the king had burned the roll, and the words which Baruch wrote at the mouth of Jeremiah, saying, 28Take thee again another roll, and write in it all the former words that were in the first roll, which Jehoiakim the king of Judah hath burned. 29And thou shalt say to Jehoiakim king of Judah, Thus saith the LORD; Thou hast burned this roll,32b wrote therein from the mouth of Jeremiah all the words of the book which Jehoiakim king of Judah had burned in the fire: and there were added besides unto them...
Obama described Satin &the other appointees as "fine public servants" &would bring "depth of experience and tremendous dedication" to their roles.
The advisory council helps to make policy recommendations to the administration and suggests improvements and best practices for services that relate to faith-based groups. Of the 15 current members on the council, most are "Christians."
Recently, Obama defended his administration's decision to instruct public schools to allow transgender students to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity, saying that society must protect the dignity and safety of vulnerable children.
"Nobodyâs ever born a transgender,â he told the Daily Mail last January. âTheyâre manufactured as a result of something, a developmental childhood issue that has yet to be determined for many people.âHeyer expertly testifies.
2 Kings 18 had a good example when Hezekiah Destroyed Idolatry in Judah --
1Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign. 2Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Abi, the daughter of Zachariah. 3And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did. 4He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan.
5He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him. 6For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.
-- The irony that OBEDIENCE to Moses' teaching meant DESTROYING
THE Nahustan object (fashioned by Moses!) shows that our sentimentality over religious objects is fallen human nature- We struggle with desire to see "things" vs a faithful vision.
They want to allow MEN who identify otherwise. ...used to qualify for mental evaluation. Clearly,those who would allow for this know that these people are men,as they correctly so call them. If the people were not men,they wouldn't be obviously identified as such. End of story if reason was applied. So...too many people in the place of authority been at the bottle too long or been toking,or what? Let's replace them with people who can,at least,not be so easily fooled by very fundamental principles,like gender identification.
