This is where I'm at. I defintiely see it everywhere but it's a little hard to accept-even harder to deny. It goes against what I've been taught. We all know that modern christianity doesnt equal biblical christianity so that's not surprising. I find the words of Elijah in 1 Samuel 3:18 comforting- "....And he said, It is the Lord: let him do what seemeth hin good." God is good, holy, just, and so much more. He'll always do what is right regardless if we understand or not. That is extremely comforting.

Your instant comeback for anything you don't agree with is "stupid," "insane," and so forth. Please refrain from attacking me with those words in the future. I would request that you buttress your arguments with Scripture, but you can't, because what you're saying is unbiblical to begin with."
Excellent reply to unnecessary name calling and unbiblical teaching!
This reminds me of an article I read by a doula. She had chosen to kill her baby via abortion and is at peace with it. She stated two things that shocked me (it shoulsnt have but it did) 1) She said even if an ultrasound was required to be shown to women before an abortion she wouldnt havd changed her mind. 2) There was no way anyone could convince her a fetus was a baby. This coming from a doula??????
