If we're gonna talk about opression and compasion, let's recognize that the compasionate way to treat the illegal imigrants is to put them through the same process everyone else needs to go through. Illegal imigrants have been over worked in unsafe workplace environments for less than minimum wages for years now. Also, illegal immigrants are more likely to rely on some form of government wellfair than natural born citizens. And besides that, allowing these people in through our border opens us up for a huge national security threat! Al quaeda has talked of using our open border, and al quaeda afiliated groups were caught pretending to be hispanic illegal imigrants! This is a huge threat that can't be underestimated! The compasionat thing to do is not to look away while big companies use these people for cheap labor, but to enforce the rule of law and promote EQUAL oppurtunity to all who wish to become American citizens. EVERYONE should have to go through the legal route, not just the few who actually care about recognizing our laws!
Can you be more respectful to people? We can disagree with people without trashing them, or making fun of names! Why don't you try to be more respectful to these people, even if you disagree with them!
You are not saved by praying a prayer, you are saved by the Lord working in your heart! Just because you "accepted the Lord" at an alter call doesn't mean you are truly saved. Words are one thing, but actions are entirely different. All regenerate and truly saved Christians will bear fruits by which you can discern them. So far I have not seen any good fruit on your tree. All I have seen is your defence of a man centered cult, your pride and arrogance, and your deciet towards others! I'm not trying to attack or hurt you, I'm trying to help you by pointing out these things. I pray to God you will see the error of your ways and turn to defending the God centered religion rather than man centered religion. I once did the same thing with Mormonism, but I figured out I was wrong, and I turned to the truth for my guidance! I hope you will do the same!
Yes, that was what I meant: what you said! I wasn't trying to say that doctrinal creeds don't have their place or purpose, just that sometimes we elevate them to highly and criticize people over their unimportant doctrinal differences rather than where they fall under God's word, like the belly buttoners vs the non-belly buttoners, or the pre-tribers vs the post tribers! That's what I was trying to say, sorry if it came out wrong!
