I for one am tired of emotional manipulation. Christianity isn't about "me" and what "I feel, think, like, etc". Lets keep to Scripture. Anyways, in an effort to move on I'd like to share a Proverbs. One that I try to use to teach my children but they have yet to understand that they can't hog all the legos-pray for me. Ha. Proverbs 26:20 "Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. 26:21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife." Time will reveal where one stands- serving self/emotions or denying self and serving God.
No Penny you misunderstood me. Nothing wrong with being involved. But at the same time we cant expect a bible believing christian to win votes, not without a miracle. He would speak against sin-sodomites, abortions, feminism, etc. Exposing darkness. But I wouldnt discourage him from running. He'd get some biblical truth out there.
JY, you sound real selfish. Tour salvation consits of what you did (I said a prayer) not what Christ did (He saved a wretch like me! Rescued me from sin! Set me free). You put your trust in man (my brother, my niece and nephew) and not Jesus Christ (repent and believe the Gospel-that includes repenting of taking part in a satanic religion). You dont feel comfortoable in a certain kind of worship so you wont go else where. Forgt the fact that your worship smells like dung to Christ and that He says to take up the cross and follow Him. It's all about John Y not Jesus. You sir need to repent of your selfishness and your pride. You sir need to repent and believ the Gospel.
To the brethren, reading through this forum I can see your fustation. It's like banging your head against a wall. Just want to encourage yall to continue fighting thw good fight-not for John Y's sake but for the sake of Christ and His holy name and for silent readers.
To your comment D Betford I would add that making breastfeeding something to be looked down on has led to an increase in breast cancer. God has designed things an amazing way. A woman doesnt need a can to feed her baby (a majority of the time).

Have you ever looked into geocentricity? It's intetesting what Scripture has to say on the topic Â With your love of creationism I think the study would be up your ally. I know my view is in the minority but it's the conclusions I've come to after reading Scripture.
Isaiah 45:18 "For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else."
Elmer, from another comment you have posted I now see where you're coming from. There are actual deaths but you do have to wonder if the numbers being reported are being blown out of proportion. Think the new slogan "Ebola is real?!" Until more is known it's best to be cautious.
Ben, excellent Psalm. But at the same time we're not to sit around twiddling our thumbs.
Lets live in lala land and assume a pandemic could never happen to us because we're America. You know ,we got all the nifty health equipment. We're so far ahead that we treat cancer with radiation which causes cancer. Genius!!! Im not saying that ebola will be a pandemic. My point is that this was a reasonable reaction-nothig wrong with being cautious.
So believing in a young earth is unscientific? Ah well you better start praying for salavation since virgins becoming pregnant is also unscientific. If you doubt one part of God's word it leads to trouble. Some things are taken on faith. As the Lord asked Job in 38:4 "where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?"
