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.
Christopher000 wrote: Good comments, Frank, and, yes...quite the conundrum. Makes no sense to me either that a biological father has no say in the matter. 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.
Nosey, Here is an odd fact concerning fathers. Fathers simply don't count in our feminist culture.
Isnât it odd that a woman does not legally need the permission of the father of her unborn baby to obtain an abortion, whether he is her married spouse or not. And yet, if she is married, then she would have to have the permission of her husband to give their baby up for adoption or if divorced or if not married, she would of course be eligible to receive child support. So what our culture is saying is that the baby belongs solely to her if it is in her womb, but when it is born it belongs to both; the mother and father; hence child support is mandated for the father of his born child whether or not he marries the mother or not. So, the next time a woman says to the father of her child; I am carrying your child, she should be corrected since it canât possibly belong to the father when it is unborn; otherwise she wouldnât be able to murder it without his permission.
Iâll bet that I havenât watched more than 10 minutes of the DNC. But I was a little surprised about the extent they are playing the race and gender card. I knew they would do it, but not to the extent they are doing it. Anyway, that appears to be the two of the 3 biggest groups they are going to need to win. Blacks, Hispanics, and women should do it. Hillary is on record for saying, âdonât vote for me because I am a womanâ, but the rhetoric says otherwise. A woman leader is always a curse from God on a nation â always.
Now a comment on the article.
Christians and all citizens who pay taxes have paid for abortions for years. But with that said, I am not guilty in any way of supporting abortion because I have no choice but to pay my taxes; there is a big difference. The only forced abortions that I am aware of is when perhaps a woman in China or somewhere like that is sedated and the abortion is done that way. So, the fact that I pay for abortions doesnât make me guilty and it is not forcing me to do anything immoral. Paying taxes is moral, what they do with them is immoral.
Lastly, there is never and I mean never an instance when an unborn child should be target for abortion.

Yes brother there is no comparison. I read where there are 40 to 50 million abortions worldwide every year. We can make all the excuses we want for this abomination to occur, but in God's eyes it is even worse than ISIS beheading someone. A little baby in the womb has done no wrong and they had no choice in being there.
I also read a while back where something like 30 percent of American women have murdered their babies and 59 percent of those already had children when they did that.
Hillary and her ilk believe that life starts after the baby leaves the womb, so they have no problem murdering these babies. The repubs cleverly disguise their pro-choice agenda and will do nothing to stop it. But, at this point I will vote for Trump. Instead of 1 million babies being killed perhaps his pandering will result in only 999,999 being slaughtered.
The Nazi's didn't think the Jews were real people; the people set back and watched. Now there is a comparison.

Yes, I live in Clearwater fl and it is so hot and humid. We are getting rain just about every day, but that just seems to make it worse. But just think, our weather is perfect for 7-8 months of the year!

I agree, but Jim is pretty good at what he does. He has a degree in psychology and believes he can manipulate the minds of those on this forum. Anyone and I mean anyone that can vote for Obama and promote Hillary over "anyone" should simply be ignored. Obama is the most evil male who has ever held public office and Hillary is a woman. End of story.
If he posts links, no one reads them anyway. But, I am glad you mentioned him. We always need to be prepared for his thoughts.
Edit, few read his links. I shouldn't have said no one.
MS wrote: Tertullian AD197: Wrote to condemn the practice beginning to be introduced of baptizing the dead and of baptizing infants. The way for this change, however, had been prepared by teaching concerning baptism which was divergent from that in the New Testament; the heresy of baptismal regeneration which was already being taught as early as the second century. The growth of a "clerical" system had begun to substitute a human organization of religious rites for the power and working of the Holy Spirit and the guidance of the Scriptures. What a monster it has become.
Good comment sister! The RCC believes in and practices baptismal regeneration. But following baptism, then someone has to earn their salvation. Grace is infused, not imputed into their followers. And as you know, I believe most of our churches have become Roman/Protestant and have incorporated many of the blasphemies of the RCC into their worship and don't even realize it.
No doubt the German government will do this. After all, to say that Islamists are naturally prone to be terrorist would make their acceptance of them a mistake. All who practice Islam as it is taught in the Quran, will either support terrorism or do it. I also remember Obama's workplace violence silliness. Politicians will say and do anything.
Looking back through history, I found several examples of pope's guaranteeing crusaders heaven if they died in combat. Not much difference in my mind. Muslims get their 72 virgins and the RCC promised their combatants could skip purgatory.
As the world becomes more chaotic, the closer we get to the blessed return of our Lord and Savior. Praise His holy name.
Millions of religionists of all stripes have joined together to call back America to the "traditional moral values" upon which it was founded by casting a vote for an obvious ungodly individual who doesn't know God from a gourd. This "mission" has replaced the Great Commission in the hearts and minds of multitudes of evangelicals. I join you in Maranatha LORD JESUS.
Yes sister, the social gospel is built on a false foundation and it will always collapse. We are seeing ours crumble right before our very eyes, although the collapse started from day one.
Isaiah 3:8 For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen, Because their speech and their actions are against the LORD, To rebel against His glorious presence. 9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
Our country is so sick that the majority of our culture doesnât even recognize how evil this nation is. The gospel is being dummied down and so has our moral fiber. And we are supposed to make America Great Again by inviting guests who donât even try to hide their abominable behavior. These last 2 sentences were meant to be sarcasm. Neither party stands against abortion, homosexuality, greed and feminism. They are all different shades of the same color.
JohnY, thanks for your post and you simply proved my point. FG would say you are saved; only 1 on this forum would agree with him.
 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2Co 6:14-18)
Well parrot, for starters the above verse 18 is dependent on verses 14-17; especially verses 16 and 17.
Now, since you attend the RCC, according to your own testimony, you are not a son of the most high. That is your testimony and I only posted this for the occasional viewer who "might" be confused by your comment.
Yes Kev. I was only referring to the end result, not the process. Good post brother.
Stephen Crawford wrote: Amen Joe. Let me add as well Billy Graham has helped in his compromise over the years. Trying to win friends who are haters of the Gospel and those who despise it. I'm not saying not go out to win the lost but ecumenism is unBiblical and its apostasy. America and The UK needs a mighty Holy Ghost reviva! Please Lord in wrath remember mercy.
The Grahams have simply dummied down the blessed gospel of our Lord and Savior. They like âallâ politicians deny our Lord and Savior through their ecumenicalism and social gospel and at most give Him lip service as if He is some beggar they can throw a bone to once in a while.

No, no, no, Lady Virtue is a valued Christian woman who has great wisdom. The thumbs up was because she knew I was trying to be cute. Let me explain further.
What a great and inspiring story.
I said the above because it had nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity. My sarcasm wasn't aimed at the intelligence or anything about the migrant himself. If you think there was a Christian message, please post what it was.
But, I'll bet he has an easier time finding a wife now.
I said the above because my guess is that someone who has gained fame and some notoriety will have an easier time finding a wife; especially a secular wife. Lady Virtue was once again able to see the pragmatism in my comment.
GROW UP! WISE UP! SHUT UP! OR TRY TO STOP CALLING GOOD EVIL AND EVIL GOOD!
I wrote the above because I simply can't decide which one is more appropriate? You can pick, but my guess is none are possible, but I hope I'm wrong.
There was no candidate on the Republican side that would change the direction of our society or culture; not one. The republicans must cater/pander to the professing church and conservatives, so they lie about things whereas the Democrats make no pretense about what they will do. They know/think they will get the black, hispanic and the women votes regardless. So, like I am fond of saying; they are all different shades of the same color.
There were many speakers during the convention that support abortion and none of them stand for the true gospel of our Lord and Savior.
With that said, years ago Mike from NY convinced me that I should vote anyway. The only time I didn't vote was when Palin was on the ticket because I truly believe she confused the "genuine" church of Christ. No one on either platform confuses any genuine believer, so at this point I will probably vote for Trump.
My reasoning is that instead of 1 million babies being murdered, perhaps only 999,999 will be slaughtered. Pandering to the church will probably accomplish at least that.
My understanding is this lady posed nude and she didn't even renounce doing that?
No problem Kev., it was my honor to intercede for you. And, if you have additional things you need prayer for, you can post them here or use my private email. I never share any private emails with anyone else - period. Many don't do follow ups, but I am glad to see you do. That means you take prayer seriously.
Yes, they have no uniforms and no battle code of conduct. It is very difficult to separate and identify the killers because they all dress the same. They are truly terrorists who strike randomly and at targets that are not defended. These Western actions are not meant to take over territory or even to change people minds, but to show their hate for anyone who does not practice Islam. They even murder their own who think like them and they murder those who despise their cause. And they murder women and children as easily as the men.
And lastly, if anyone thinks these barbarians wouldnât set off a nuclear weapon, they are wrong.
