Here's a clue! Protecting the life of the mother is paramount, Ladybug. It's unlawful to kill the mother, and that is still basically the law.
NPR wrote: June 2000: In Stenburg v. Carhart, the Supreme Court rules that the Nebraska ban against so-called "partial-birth" abortions should be overturned because the statute doesn't provide an exception for the health of the mother. The ruling invalidates similar laws in 29 out of 31 states.
apparently, Hilary, has something in common with some evangelicals. http://tinyurl.com/ypago4 "Christian" Activism? of course their brand of Christian activism may be different from their brand of Christian activism , which is different from Christianity.
Trump makes Hillary look like Mother Teresa (Now that can be taken in a whole lot of ways ) The Republicans picked about the only candidate Hillary could win against. They only have themselves to blame.
Trump supports abortion to save the life of the mother (One of the few instances I agree with him) and in cases of rape or incest. This doctor basically has it right, http://tinyurl.com/zqy2shp (Abortion in Jewish Law) though he even pointed out that psychological health, may not be a good excuse.
I would have to wonder if one should blame the baby for who his parents are? I really think not in even cases of rape and incest.

Gasp! is that what he did I'm glad you brought that up.

If we are in the Kingdom of God now then the Charismatics are right to teach that health and prosperity is the right of believers today. This is why "Reconstruction" Calvinists and "Kingdom Now" Charismatics have formed at least a loose unity -- they both have the same world view. Sadly, they are not looking for Christ to return and set up His Kingdom, they are attempting to set it up for Him.
The top issues to the American voter in 2016 are, 1. The Economy, 2. Terrorism, 3. Foreign policy, 4. Health care.
The only one that Mr. Trump may have a handle on is terrorism. One out four, is not a very good percentage. From Pew Research, "The economy and terrorism are the top two issues for voters this fall. Overall, 84% of registered voters say that the issue of the economy will be very important to them in making their decision about who to vote for in the 2016 presidential election; slightly fewer (80%) say the issue of terrorism will be very important to their vote. In 2008, far more said the economy would be very important to their vote (87%) than the issue of terrorism (68%).

Today Peterson is laser-focused on fighting the cultural cancer of political correctness. He is alarmed at how quickly it is metastasizing into laws that seek to punish any and all self-expression. Such legislationâin his case, Canadaâs bill C-16, which would amend the Canadian Human Rights Code and Criminal Code to add âgender identity and expressionâ as a special category for anti-discriminationâis tailor-made to program people into conformity of thought. As with all things politically correct, such legislation always comes disguised in the language of âequality.â

You guys have been stating that I should start attending an Evangelical Protestant Church and then when I start to do it then you guys are still not satisfied. What is with you guys anyway? Why are you guys not satisfied that I am attending an Evangelical Protestant Church?
Praise the Lord, John Y. It will be more in alignment of what you be saying here than of course attending a Romish Church.
Oh, something on church size, you know there has been research on high school sizes, I bet what is learn there might be applicable to Church size as well?
Prof. Valerie E. Lee wrote: We felt that high schools [churches] with 600 to 900 students [laity] were large enough to offer a full and solid curriculum, but small enough so students [laity] were known well by their teachers and didnât get lost in the cracks....
We also found that the effect of school size on learning is even more important for less advantaged students [laity] (either those with lower-socioeconomic status or minority students [laity]).
Isaiah 45: âI am Yahweh; and there is no other. 19 I have not spoken in secret, in a place of the land of darkness. I didnât say to the seed of Jacob, âSeek me in vain.â I, Yahweh, speak righteousness. I declare things that are right.
20 âAssemble yourselves and come. Draw near together, you who have escaped from the nations. Those have no knowledge who carry the wood of their engraved image, and pray to a god that canât save. 21 Declare and present it. Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has shown this from ancient time? Who has declared it of old? Havenât I, Yahweh? There is no other God besides me, a just God and a Savior; There is no one besides me.
22 âLook to me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.
Somebody better read that to Trump, he thinks he's God He certainly acts like it.
Psalms 53:1: The fool has said in his heart, âThere is no God.â They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity. There is no one who does good.
Matthew 19 3 And some Pharisees came to Him, testing Him, and saying, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause at all?" 4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5 and said, 'FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'? 6 "Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."---NASB
John Yurich USA wrote: What stripped down version of salvation? I accept the biblical doctrine of salvation that states that there is only one requirement for salvation and that is to embrace Jesus as ones Savior and trust entirely in Him alone for salvation.
But, John, you don't accept the need to go to a Christian church
Ephesians 4:10 He who descended is the one who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love."---ESV
