The UN may want to rethink that one. They wouldn't want to possibly interfere with the "rights" of the sadomasochists betwixt one another or,conceivably,eliminate all of those twisted public displays of sodomite bondage acts during parades and such. (please take in the sarcastic vein that this is written). Seriously though,those could be potential issues.
No concern,Christopher. "You do not" has a twisted notion of what constitutes "sin" as if naked women were of none effect. "You do not" is blind to the fact that is because we are not so bothered by scantily clad people in this country (according to their assessment) that we are in the predicament that we find ourselves now with businesses closing,etc.
I agree,BRF. No wonder Solomon was lamenting. Woe to the man who marries more than one wife. Anyone else see a disaster stewing in the pot? I just wonder how long that trend (polygamy) would last.My guess would be for "not long".

I read about that, followed links to defense department memos, did not see what they saw, but will admit may be because not as trained an eye as them, something about paying $400 a month. Other articles about Obama support for the "moderate" radicals. It is pretty bad. So, what is your solution to the issue? We already know our government is corrupt, what should we do with the info? I did see McCain and Graham mentioned too. How do you think we should respond? It is more of my money being spent by the government in ways I don't approve. As Pogo said, we have met the enemy and he is us.
Hugh from scotland, yes it is amazing and humbling to watch the prayers that had been prayed over the years finally come to fruit. The most amazing of all was how he felt the change himself...his comment that he wished he had done this years ago, said it all to me. Yes, Amazing Grace.
B. McCausland wrote: There is a remnant. "Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy." Rev 3:4 "Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace." Rm 11:5 "Wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left." Is 37:4 "The dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." Rev. 12:17
The last verse you quote here is a good definition of the remnant. "which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ"
I listened to the link given on this thread in part, but feared the speaker did not qualify and ceased. Isa.37:4
I grieve to think we are not as zealous *with knowledge* for first table commandments, as second for first table commandments are against God. Romans 1 indicates that the slippery slope started with violations against the Existance, Attributes and Worship of God.
I could go on in infamy speaking about the immoral women in our society. I am speaking to men because God calls men to lead, not qomen. Lead in a loving and serving way, not cowardly. We need more men like Joseph in Genesis. We need more men of Eph 5. Men should not be bullied by disgruntled women leading other women astray. We nees national repentance. May God grant it. He is merciful.
[AUTHOR]Christopher000[/AUTHOR]Hi Allie, I understand your comment, and agree, but hate it when I see men only bashing. Personally, I would prefer "mankind" because there are plenty of women writing the rules, enforcing those rules, cheating, abusing children, enticing, back-biting, fornicating, gay, and/or being champions for all of the above as they endorse, promote, and condone in one way or another.[/QUOTE]
Great Sermon! Should a pastor speak about politics or against the civil magistrate? What is the Biblical case for Biblical marriage? Have the President and Supreme Court defied the Word of God? What should be our response as the covenant church and as individual Christians? A sermon faithful in doctrine with the encouragement and practical application we need to obey God rather than man.

Anyway, if a parent here merely spanks a child, for all the right reasons, the parent will be arrested for battery, if reported, and child services will get involved to protect the child from the abusive parent. The kids know this and they call the cops themselves. I know there are a lot of bad parents and that kids do need to be protected from these, but the country has gone way too far with it's meddling amd gestapo type mindset.
The more ungodly a society becomes, the more regulations it needs, to the point of suffocating private judgment, liberty of conscience, family stewardship, individual initiative and respect.
I know it's hard and sound easy if ya say it fast but save your children from any and all schools, home schooling is our only defence for our children. The rapid decline in social conduct will leave our next generation with absolutely no moral compass. Lord father, I pray that we are doing all we can in these perilous times, through Jesus we pray amen
