This shows there is probably a difference between conservative British women and American women, though perhaps less than many expect. Probably British women still think of Quickening the beginning of life?
Sarah Zhang wrote: Before ultrasounds and long before Roe v. Wade, it was obvious when life began. The ‚Äúquickening,‚ÄĚ the first time a woman felt her baby‚Äôs kick, was the moment the baby came alive, the moment it got a soul. When Henry VIII‚Äôs wife felt her quickening, it was cause for celebratory bonfires across London. In the 19th century, abortion in Britain was legal‚ÄĒuntil the quickening.
I.E., the person who was miffed was Sean Spicer who wasn't with this group, being a Catholic he wanted to meet the Pope and of course, Mrs. Trump also a Catholic no doubt got what she wished for an audience with the Pope. So, there are quite a few Catholics in the Trump group, and soon no doubt Newt Gingrich will be in Rome with his wife when she becomes the American Ambassador to the Vatican,

BBC wrote: Police investigating the Manchester Arena bomb attack have stopped sharing information with the US after leaks to the media, the BBC understands.
UK officials were outraged when photos appearing to show debris from the attack appeared in the New York Times.
It came after the name of bomber Salman Abedi was leaked to US media just hours after the attack, which left 22 dead.
Theresa May said she would tell Donald Trump at a Nato meeting that shared intelligence "must remain secure".
"The police decision to stop sharing information specifically about the Manchester attack with their security counterparts in the US is a hugely significant move and shows how angry British authorities are."
Ross Douthat wrote: But there the similarities end. Graham‚Äôs persona was warm and inclusive, but theologically he preached a stark, stripped-down gospel ‚ÄĒ a series of altar calls, with eternity hanging in the balance and Christianity distilled to a yes or no for Christ. Osteen‚Äôs message is considerably more upbeat. His God gives without demanding, forgives without threatening to judge, and hands out His rewards in this life rather than in the next. Where Graham was inclined to comments like ‚Äúwe‚Äôre all on death row . . . the only way out of death row is Jesus,‚ÄĚ Osteen prefers cheerier formulations. ‚ÄúToo many times we get stuck in a rut, thinking we‚Äôve reached our limits,‚ÄĚ he writes in Your Best Life Now. ‚ÄúBut God wants us to constantly be increasing, to be rising to new heights.

Probably should ladybug, and also when Bush Jr. met with John Paul II. But while I have seen many of these quotations or bits and pieces of them, in different places, I suddenly realized they were in just one sermon, http://tinyurl.com/zh7uozj (The Pope and the Papacy). So, while it should have been put up from Reagan thru Trump Presidencies, I only had all of this at one source this year. It also an excellent source on Spurgeon's comments on Catholic priests as well.
Charles Spurgeon on the Pope wrote: It is the bound and duty of every Christian to pray against this Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is, no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the popery in the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name.
Popery is contrary to Christ‚Äôs gospel and is the antichrist and we ought to pray against it. It should be the daily prayer of every believer that the antichrist might be hurled like a millstone into the flood and for Christ, because it wounds Christ, because it robs Christ of his glory, because it puts sacramental efficacy in the place of his atonement and lifts a piece of bread into the place of the Savior and a few drops of water into the place of the Holy Spirit. And puts a mere fallible man like ourselves up as the Vicar of Christ on Earth. IF we pray against it, because it is against him, we shall love the persons though we hate their errors. We shall love their souls though we loathe and detest their dogmas. And so the breath of our prayers will be sweetened because we turn our faces toward Christ when we pray.
Ross Douthat wrote: ... in twenty-first-century America, the gospel of wealth has come of age. By linking the spread of the gospel to the habits and mores of entrepreneurial capitalism, and by explicitly baptizing the pursuit of worldly gain, prosperity theology has helped millions of believers reconcile their religious faith with their nation‚Äôs seemingly unbiblical wealth and un-Christian consumer culture.

British officials expressed anger at American security officials over the leak to U.S. news media of Abedi's name hours after the attack, when they already realized he might have accomplices they needed to locate as fast as possible to prevent more lives being lost in a followup attack, one senior western official told ABC News today.

Alan Dershowitz wrote: If we are to have any chance of reducing terrorism, we must get to its root cause. It is not poverty, disenfranchisement, despair or any of the other abuse excuses offered to explain, if not to justify, terrorism as an act of desperation. It is anything but. Many terrorists, such as those who participated in the 9/11 attacks, are educated, well-off, mobile and even successful. They make a rational cost-benefit decision to murder innocent civilians for one simple reason: they believe that terrorism works.
And tragically, they are right. The international community has rewarded terrorism while punishing those who try to fight it by reasonable means....The treatment of the Tibetans by China, the Kurds by most of the Arab world, and the Chechen people by Russia has been terrible ‚Äď but their response to grievances has been largely ignored by the international community and the media because they mostly sought remedies within the law rather than through terrorism.
Other groups with grievances have learned from the success of Palestinian terrorism and have emulated the use of that barbaric tactic.

Not surprising from a man who would alter Scripture, Luther did not believe in the inerrancy of Scripture either. Well known is his low esteem of the epistle of James. He called it an "epistle of straw." In his opinion, it did not contain the gospel. In his translation of the Bible, Luther placed the epistle of James after Revelation, because he disliked it so much....
3. Luther & Consubstantiation/Sacramentalism...
"Reformers" were just that -- bent on "reforming" Catholicism, not on "transforming" it, and certainly not on rejecting it outright.
Actually, SteveR, at least two people called police to warn him this fellow had dangerous beliefs several years ago, but as you might have seen in the Christian Science Monitor article in my first message, about the three things... police can only handle so much.
Dwight Oswald wrote: "... you have this baptismal regeneration, preparing stepping stones to make it easy for men to go to Rome. ... I pray you never rest upon this wretched and rotten foundation, this deceitful invention of antichrist." -- Charles Spurgeon (From his sermon titled Baptismal Regeneration)
An Evangelical Reputation -- A Sacramental Gospel
Luther is quoted favorably by just about everyone in professing Christianity....
In reality, Luther did not hold to JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH ALONE IN CHRIST ALONE! If he had really held to this, he would have rejected the doctrine of "baptismal regeneration." He did not! In fact, Luther called for the death of those (Anabaptists) who outspokenly believed in JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH ALONE IN CHRIST ALONE and practiced BELIEVER'S BAPTISM. To get away from a gospel of works salvation, Luther referred to baptism as "God's Work" and not a work that man does. However, the OBJECT of Luther's faith was not Christ ALONE, but CHRIST plus BAPTISM. That is ANOTHER GOSPEL!!!
