Wade should be overturned and the right to abortion should be left up to the states. So, the states can then decide to murder these innocent lives What they should be protesting is the murder of these innocent lives. Let them show videos of these little babies being torn apart or burned to death in the place that should be the safest for them. It was the mothers of these children that volunteered their children to be slaughtered, so I donâ€™t have a clue how they were betrayed. I guess what I am saying is these body parts didnâ€™t belong to anyone and they are making a distinction between putting the parts in a trash can versus selling them. Both acts are barbaric, but I simply donâ€™t see much of a moral difference, except the buyers of these body parts are now complicit. Now since my comment is odd, let me add this so that no one misunderstands me. I think that the mothers, doctors, and anyone who assists doctors in performing an abortion should be charged with murder. And those that support this movement by their votes, etc. will answer to the Lord.
One of the books reviewed and glowingly recommend by this young man currently pursuing ordination in the PCA...he suggests that the 40 short chapters would each be suitable as a meditation for the 40 days of *LENT* ..... Another hireling...
A much better resource: Trinitarian Bible Society--quote. "The Bible is God's Book given by Divine inspiration to reveal Himself and the gospel of grace to sinful mankind. As such it is not to be added to,subtracted from, changed to appeal to unbievers,or modified to avoid offending modern man. In summary, the Society seeks to produce God-honoring,literal,idiomatic,trustworthy translations from the original languages".

A Christian Forum is excercised by some as a ministry for the encouragement and edification of others. Freedom of speech and respect are basic parameters, malice, or viciousness should not be part of it, neither calling names. One has the freedom to refrain from reading particular posts or commenting on others. Self-control is a fruit of the Spirit of God in the hearts of the children of God. My apologies if my understanding appears so detrimental in your judgement, that cannot signify any good to you. Others might differ. This is an open forum, it is not private. My kind respects to you, Sir.
Most respectful admonition...may we all take heed.

Cain was created in the image of God, as was Esau and Pharaoh yet how they brought God glory was different then the way Abel, Jacob and Moses did. One of the most helpful teachers in print that I've found concerning a right understanding of this issue and others is Stephen Charnock's 'The Existance and Attributes of God'. When he's finished with each chapter's topic I stand in awe of God and am humbled for my ignorance concerning Him. Mike, Charnock would do more justice to your question than I could ever do.
How wonderful that through creation and revelation, God has shown who He is to His creatures. The church owes an immeasureable debt to men like Charnock who have used their gifts to enable sinners to understand the glories of the triune God. What a pity that many have heard of God, but few in the world today know Him as He truly is, or acknowledges Him as God.
B. McCausland mentioned Daniel Chamberlins most helpful talk on the KJV. We have listened to it and were also encouraged by it. Another speaker who was beneficial regarding this matter was: Dr. David Allen UK KJV- Safeguard of the Gospel SA 32411640391 3/20/11.

If the Graham's truly loved others they would do all they could to direct them away from Roman Catholicism.( and any other false works based man-centered religion) Btw---the council of Trent anathematized the gospel of God's sovereign free grace in the 1500's and have never rescinded. So for a gospel preacher to be in alliance with that type of sorcery deserves to be called out and the people warned of the wolf among the flock....
