Frank wrote: if there was one woman that slept with even one boy, she was called a whore. Try doing that today." Ah yes I've made some christians pretty mad or at least put them on the defense by calling a spade a spade. In fact, I recall seeing a young girl dressed inappropriately on the street corner holding up a sign advertising a car wash and when I called her a prositutue, that's what she was, selling her body in order to get a donation, I was met with opposition. Now In sure some willnrrad this and accuse me of being unloving and not caring about the lost. On the contrary, I do care and it's sad how calling sin what it is is misunderstood as being unloving.
Yes I've noiced that Christopher. In fact, the church thing you mentioned, along with other stuff, is why we left one church we were attending.
Another thing that seems all to common is double mindness. A men will act and preach things one way but as soon as relative or friend is around that isn't saved, the mens attitude changes. All of a sudden then men is not so "weird and different" but is "one of the guys." Lukewarmness! Yuck! And then who is left to be the "weird and different" one, the "bad guy"....why it's the wife. I know this isn't always the case but it has been what I've witnessed. Sometimes I really want to tell the guys to man up and grow a backbone but that's far from a meek and gentle spirit.....
Listen to the silence wrote: " Fact: Abortion has two victims - the baby and the mother. Many women who have abortions suffer both physically and mentally. Depression, anxiety, grief, infection, sterility and even death are not uncommon as a result of the abortion."
I do not see the mothers as victims nor do I pity them for suffering the consquences of their ungodly actions. Sounds like a form of justice. hopefully the women repent and get saved. There's forgiveness at the cross.
All the comments have been great. My husband and I have three children we lost early on, four girls, and are pregnant with our first boy! Funny and sad thing is that I was mistaken as a catholic today and when I said I wasn't one they said I must be mormon. Once I said I wasn't a mormon either they were dumbfounded. Sadly most christians share their view of children with the world, not the Lord.
If it walks like a duck, really? Raw milk is bad and unsafe? Yes I'm sure the land flowing with milk and honey was flowing with pasteurized milk. And um a cow standing in a field in it's own feces.....that, my friend, is commercial farming. That article needed a little more discernment. before posting as truth. You have quacks and greedy folks on both sides of the coin.
Mourner, off topic and totally the parents choice but it is untrue that they only recieve the vitamin k shot (which is unnecessary). Newborns recieve gel on their eyes to prevent blindness from stds....all mothers, regardless of being positive or negative for std, are treated the same with the gel on their babies eyes. Hep B shot is also given and sometimes antibiotics if the mother tested positive for the bacteria strep b regardless if baby shows signs of having strep b pnemuia. Of course opting out of these is an option but can cause problems.
