So Adriel, you are saying that total depravity belongs only to liberals and not conservatives? Only those that are in Christ, can please Christ.

Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.

You are being dishonest, and that is sin. You seem to delight in coming here and playing 'stupid' on a daily basis. Yet, you are 'college educated' - seems to be a trend here... You are clueless as to what the new birth is. I cannot fathom why SA lets you come here daily and defend a religion that God hates, and cause division. IF you have time to make sport of the internet, you have time to get a job, IF you don't already have one....You are guilty of being slothful and you need to get off the internet and actively look for employment. Don't expect handouts from taxpayers, work with your hands as the bible states.
Good comment sister and thanks for taking the time to expose this silly parrot.
I just want to add that the only poster that thinks JohnY is in the faith is SteveR and the only poster that thinks that SteveR is in the faith is JohnY.
With all the other posters, how can that logically be?
What a silly world we live in. If women had served in combat the same as men do, no army with those women would have won any war. Women are not equal physically and they cannot pass any basic training or especially any combat training that is currently in place for men. Why a woman would think that because standards must be lowered for them that makes them equal to men is really confusing.
Roles of women and men have been intertwined to such a degree that it is âimpossibleâ to undo the damage that exists. But, the truth still should be spoken.

Tragically the West is decadent, and God may well use an evil nation like North Korea to bring chastening. However we must pray. There is a tiny remnant left in the USA of faithful believers who have not compromised, there are many more in South Korea, and then there is a tiny number of persecuted believers in North Korea, many in horrific camps, and others suffering in the general population in their tiny underground churches, fearful at any moment of the police charging in, a show trial, being immured in a camp with torture and beating, perhaps a neighbour or their own child at the local party led school denouncing them. "How long, oh Lord, how long?"
You post and thoughts about this situation were perfect. I can add nothing; thanks.
Donât you realize that you can say nothing that will change otherâs opinion of you? You voted for the most evil president in history and you admitted to doing that. You voted for the most evil candidate in history, Hillary, and actually stated that she was a paragon of virtue when compared to the republican candidates. The democrats all stand for abortion, homosexuality and feminism. Unlike the republicans, they donât even try and hide their agenda, so scripture says that makes them worse.
Isaiah 3:9 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.
I think it is somewhat humorous that you denounce Ladybug as being a feminist and yet you promote feminism by your political thoughts. To you feminism just needs to be contained in churches and yet scripture speaks of the evil of feminism in all walks of life. You voted for the most evil feminist in history, your heroine Hillary.
Use your thoughts and not some silly link to argue against sister Ladybug. And stop the ad-hominem attacks. They are childish and invalid.

Excellent quote NeedHim! Yes, if there is no personal God then mankind is not responsible for their thoughts and actions. They can commit any sins they desire and the only restraint is being caught if that sin happens to be illegal or unethical. If God is not the Creator of the universe and all things contained in it, then He has no legitimate claim to being its God or King.

Reminded me of the Stanley, and others, primordial soup experiments where constant lightening strikes to natural gases, I think, created the amino acids, etc, the soup, they believed which the ocean water gave life to...or something like that. They believed that because they were able to get some sort of a reaction that God's creation, all that we see around us today, including all life forms, must have arisen from this sludge. How ridiculous and ignorant. Science.
Thanks Chris! You and I agree on the silliness of this. I remember reading a while back where a group of scientists, in England I think, were going to try and make artificial wombs and then implant embryos into the wombs and make babies. They then said that would free women from the disease of pregnancy.
That may not be totally accurate, but I can look up the source if anyone likes. It is called ectogenesis.
Ah, it appears sister Ladybug has hit a nerve; good for her. If we were to take a poll from the posters on this forum, how many do you think would support you in any way? Now that should tell you something? It doesnât tell JohnY or SteveR anything, so if you continue to post your nonsense, I would completely understand.
Imam Muhammad Musri, president of the Islamic Society of Central Florida and, with Engel, a co-host of the weekly âFriends Talking Faithâ public radio show, agreed.
âI found Pastor Hunter to be a wonderful and a faithful ambassador for Christ,â Musri said. âI especially treasure working with him and traveling nationally and internationally to bring mutual understanding, respect and love between Christians and Muslims.â
The above is from the article.
Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Oddly enough, the more the scientific community believes they understand the magnificence of Godâs creation, the less they attribute to our Creator. It is like saying, âif I understand something scientificâ, then God didnât really do it. There are some Christian scientists, but they are rare indeed.
The mere fact that they can create an embryo in a test tube doesnât mean they can create life. They can experiment with a test tube embryo all they want, but it will never grow into a human. Only an embryo in a womanâs womb will do that.
The Lordâs original design is the only way a life can be created; plain and simple. They can modify an embryo all they want and then implant it into a womanâs womb, but that life will still grow into the being that was designed before the world was formed. They cannot affect the soul and spirit of mankind.

Yes it is a real hardship living here. I spent a couple of winters in Mass. sliding all over the roads and using lighters to unthaw the locks on the car doors so we could open them. So, I am familiar with your neck of the woods. Do they use that expression in NE?
ladybug wrote: Well said bro. Frank; the verses you listed are very relevant to this situation. I wrote to my representative concerning issues about infanticide and homosexual marriage - the response was that they were 'pro life'. Yet, we still have babies being slaughtered daily and sodomites getting married. Talk is cheap....
Yes sister, if a politician stood for and practiced biblical truth, they wouldn't be elected. That would be impossible in our society.
I have never seen a politician saying: abortion is murder, homosexuality is an abomination in God's eyes, greed is idolatry, feminism is evil and the only way for "ANYONE" to be saved is through Christ.
Yes, talk is cheap. And the Lord will hold the rich and famous to the same standard He does those that are deemed least in our society.
Matthew 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
The people who serve in the White House are simply lost sinners. They cannot possibly understand spiritual things because their spirits are dead. They cannot denounce satan and his wicked plans because they are part of his movement.
Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
Jeremiah 23:17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you.
Jeremiah 23:22 But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
ladybug wrote: I don't really follow her ministry, I do recall her signing the ecumenical manhattan declaration - https://www.leavinglaodicea.com/the-flawed-and-sinister-manhattan-declaration/
Hey sister! Yes, I seem to remember that as well. I can't even imagine how a Christian could sign that document and then not repent of doing that later on. As you and I know, it referred to the catholics Greek Orthodox and other cults as being in the genuine faith.
Anyway, I read her life story over 30 years ago and it was amazing how much she suffered. I know the Lord provides for His children, but I can't even conceive of going through something like that.
Then perhaps 12 or 13 years ago, I remember writing her website and asking a question about their support for catholicism (or something like that) and I got no response.
Excellent comments sister Ladybug! Yes, Jim is quite the troll. Abortion is murder and anyone who believes that society can or should pay women off so they wonât murder their children is clueless. Why not give money to drug dealers so they wonât sell drugs? Or give money to thieves so they wonât steal? He is making women out to be victims instead of people who can decide what is right and what is wrong. The reason for abortion is simple. Immoral women consider an unwanted life to be an inconvenience of some sort. And the more promiscuous they are, the more of this world they can have.
I remember Obamaâs now famous response to the question as to when life begins. He smiled and said âthat is above my pay gradeâ! And yet, he led the most abortion friendly government that has ever existed. He doesnât know and yet he is willing to murder! And of course Jim's heroine Hillary said that abortions actually serve God!
And you are so right in saying those that support abortion are just as guilty before our heavenly Father as those that undergo an abortion. Without the supporters, you wouldnât have abortions. Helping a woman have a child is great; helping them murder their children is evil. There should "never" be no choice!

Until then..Israel to their tents!
I'm glad you posted this. If U.S. was misunderstood, then I'm sure he will clarify himself. Anyway, even though I don't attend church anymore, I have never and neither have you or Ladybug, even remotely suggested that others shouldn't attend church. We have simply given our reasoning for not attending.
For the last time, I hope, I think it is wonderful when believers can gather with like-minded believers and worship their Lord and Savior with one mind in Spirit and in truth.
ladybug wrote: Privately, I have praised God from personal experiences/trials He has brought me through, just like David did when he penned certain Psalms. I don't think we have to stick to David's experiences to praise God, rather, it's better to draw from our own personal endeavors from a personal level.
I agree with your comment sister. It has been my experience that painful trials will enter into all believer's lives and these trials are different for each of us. Each of us have different areas of weaknesses and of course the Lord knows each of us intimately.
But, all things will indeed work for our good and for His glory.
Lady_Virtue wrote: Very much agreed, Brother Frank; I had the same thought when I saw the word "radical" in the title myself. I simply see no justification for any degree of feminism in the Scriptures. God's blessings and regards to you and the misses.
Thanks sister and sister Ladybug and thank you both for your excellent comments and thoughts!
My wife and I are doing fine and thanks so much for your thoughts. The Lord has blessed us both so much; praise His holy name!
Feminism opened up Pandoraâs Box which then led to what they refer to as radical feminism. So, any level of feminism is guilty. Therefore I would change the heading to feminism sowed the seeds ... This evilness is the root cause of all liberal abominations, e.g.abortion, homosexuality and greed.
And of course any of those who have read my meditations of feminism should be aware that there is nothing at all that can slow this evil down or make it cease other than the return of our Lord. But, that doesnât mean we shouldnât fight against it.
