Many of us who hold to the AV have engaged with you Jim with the utmost civility and respect....but you have responded with sarcasm, and vitriol towards the KJV, and want to classify us as a cult... Now who is vicious ?? Better turn your magnifying glass into a mirror....
B. Fine. We live in a society that the majority "hides it's eyes" while the goverment and the medical profession commits child sacrifice But...far worse many who call themselves "Christians" condone the practice..or are apathetic and just don't think about it or are prayerless concerning the matter. When the destruction or disposal of human life is done so cheaply and easily, what a darkness has spread over the sanctity of life and human dignity... May we all be praying All of God's best.
"Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction". Prov. 31:8. Being anti-abortion is a non-negotiable ethic for true Christians. The God of the Bible is a God of the fatherless and calls for the special care of the fatherless. (Deu. 14:29, Isa. 1:17, Jam. 1:27.) The pre-born are among the most defenseless of people. They cannot voice protest, they cannot run away from danger...we are to be a voice loud and clear loving our little neighbor.

Indeed sister , my husband started e-mailing and calling our congress men and state reps. to find out what they are doing concerning this murder of the pre-born....nothing but double speak and silence. Come quickly Lord Jesus!

There's more of us, although, with me praying, you'll probably wake up with an arm growing out of your forehead. I'm not the most elegant of prayers...
We need not be cast down and distressed by the fear of not knowing what to say. If our prayers are stammering, our words feeble, and our language poor, take heart, our Lord Jesus can understand us, just as a mother understands the first babblings of her little child. Our blessed Saviour understands our groans and sighs. As one rightly said: "He loves me best who loves me in his prayers". This is the highest love... ****** Praying also,John.
Jessica, Most of us would prove to be as Job's comforters...miserable. This is not the proper environment to discuss such personal and intimate subjects. You are prayed for and may that be a sweet cordial for you during this distressing season. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

You are the one person who treated me like a neighbour, as Jesus instructed, and showed mercy on me. I feel as though the others looked at me wounded, and passed by...

Dear Jessica, Many of us have had similar experiences as you had while growing up in non-christian homes. It is a very sad reality but it is the fruit of sin and living in a fallen world. Those of us who are born from above cling to the tremendous promises in God's Word, but we still at times focus on the wind and waves in our lives.(Mark 4:35-41) Many times on this forum there will be silence on a comment that is posted, but I know in my particular case, it is not the proper venue to respond, so prayer is offered to the One who is able to comfort that particular individual in his or her situation. Thank-you for your many insightful and beneficial posts, you are a blessing on this forum. Blessings in the Beloved
ladybug wrote: Dear sister Dorcas, I finished reading 'worship' by Archibald and it was such a blessing, you may want to find time to read that one as well. I have another sermon to share with all, it's concerning the decline of America and it's heartbreaking - 'moral meltdown' - https://youtu.be/RYj82wDNeGM
Once again sister...most beneficial . Moral Meltdown needs to be heard by ALL the church.
ladybug wrote: Dear sister Dorcas I have been so very blessed by reading the sermons of Archibald Brown and wanted to share with you and others these sermons, starting with one entitled 'higgaion' - http://www.gracegems.org/29/higgaion.htm I recommend other sermons by this same preacher found at http://www.gracegems.org/29/Archibald%20Brown.htm. They have been a great blessing to me
Most beneficial sister...looking forward to reading more of his sermons! Thank you.

(this goes along with other comments about the church saying these things aren't happening here while I could take them to some streets where its all happening and the church doesn't even know)
Don't be to discouraged....there are many who quietly do just that. My little community where I reside has many such folk.
John UK wrote: Are there really any "biblically-sound" charitable works going on today? Indeed...but they are not the multi-mega media hyped organizations that some "celebrity" minister with shoeboxes hawk at X-Mass season.
John, I am not in any way responding for B. McCausland to your post, but since I did concur with what he had commented to Dolores I felt I should clarify what I understood his post to be addressing: The organization Samaritians Purse. Please reread the comments again.
I do find your comment concerning Phariseeism quite harsh...you do not know what any of us do or do not do in regard to charitable organizations....and that is Biblical...Matthew 6:1-4.
