If people, mostly so-called Christians, want to accuse me and my wife of endangering the lives of mom and baby for having simple births at home like it used to be and like it's done all over the earth, then I equally have the right to accuse others of the same who birth in a hospital. Same goes with everything else. If ya can't take it,then shut up!
Thanks for the explanation. Would you be so kind as to show any comment in any thread here where anybody accused you and your wife of endangering your child by having a simple birth at home? Maybe even more general, any comments where people condemned anybody's choice to have a birth at home?
Brother Saint Elected Elmer I wrote: I understand your denial of truth, but people like this are guilty of child abuse and neglect and the Child Protection Church needs to be notified so they can remove the child from the unfit parents.
I really don't appreciate your comments even though you are entitled to your opinion. Would ask that you kindly refrain from speaking on the matter. Thanks.
Brother Saint Elected Elmer I wrote: The child probably suffered routine hospital trauma in addition to the shots. And most likely had a status change from being a freeborn living soul into the bondage slave person with a corresponding commercial account number. Why didn't you warn them? You were made aware of these dangers long ago.
You did say these things all along but I don't share your perspective and if I did I still would leave the choice to the parents. I do, however, appreciate your concern.

I am a little confused concerning your comment about my "situation" Is it possible that you were thinking of Dolores? ---- Christopher, Thanks...hope you are well. ----- US, Yes we are very excited but I'm afraid a little bittersweet too. The little one will not be born into a Christian home, so we are in fervent prayer in regard to that situation and that we will be given much liberty and access to speak on the wonderful joy of knowing our Great God. If the Lord should so lead, would appreciate prayers from any who read this. Thank-you and may the Lord richly bless you all.
will be praying that God will open those doors for you and the hearts of the parents to gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you sister Dorcas, and congratulations as I am sure you are looking forward to the arrival of the new bundle of joy. Another generation to teach about our great God and His mighty works.

They truly are a blessing from God. My eldest granddaughter started college just a couple weeks ago. That makes me feel old. Blessings to you and yours.
thank you, she is a blessing, truly an answer to prayer. My wife didn't believe that she texted to me that I was her favorite grandparent
Lurker wrote: Brother, you are wasting your time trying to reason with SC. She is intellectually dishonest at the least. A female version of Jim Lincoln........ ever tossing out unsolicited opinions and badgering, belittling or insulting anyone who doesn't agree. I praise God that this forum has become a place where the sisters can speak freely without being bullied into silence by an insecure fundy male (it was not always so) but this woman needs to learn how to bridle her tongue. If she believes her manner of speech to Christian brothers on this forum is acceptable to God; then why should we believe she speaks any differently to her husband, assuming she is married, which God forbids? Of course she will respond that she has never made her gender known which is more intellectual dishonesty. It couldn't be more obvious by her negative comments about men and SA brothers in Christ.
Thank you for your sage advise, brother Lurker. Also, to let you know, have read and reread your email to me and come back to it several times, so don't read anything in to lack of response, it is rather weighty. Been busy trying to sell house, going up for the birth of our granddaughter, and many other things. God's blessing to you, will follow advise.

And,btw,you never apologized for,yet again,wrongly assuming and accusing me of being "just the facts" in another thread. You seem to have a pattern of jumping to false conclusions. As far as ...more to the story. Reasoning is not allowed? Maybe the prostitutes,like you,can draw conclusions without having many facts to go on. Most people,on the other hand,would require more information besides a "hello" before coming to a conclusion like..."that's the type of person I wish I was with".
I stand corrected and offer my apologies for incorrectly attributing the comments by just the facts to sc, I implore forgiveness from both for the error.
As far as pennned testimony which you call into question, I would say most people have more than 1300 characters to share their story. You missed or ignored her point to put forth your version of the story when you were not even there. But I am the one that jumps to conclusions, okay, if you say so.
the Bible was written in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek not English. You think you are wiser than God by stating He should have had it written in English? A phrase from the original may have a completely different rending in Spanish or Italian than it would in English. In fact, in Spanish, for instance, they are some English words that have no Spanish equivalent, plus they have differences in grammar. Even in English we lose something in translation. For instance when it says ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened, the idea comes across as a one time action yet in the greek is it a continuous action of asking, seeking and knocking. Now when we see that thought carried to Matthew 7:21 that uses the same tense, mood and voice, we realize that he that doeth and continues to do the the will of my Father in heaven, or what is termed the perseverance of the saints. The word conversation in Old English that we find in Philippians 3:20 which means citizenship not our talk would not be translated correctly in the foreign language used a word that described talking instead of citizenship.
This not a criticism of the KJV like Jim from Lincoln, just a stating that you don't translate from the KJV into another language
I believe that the majority of men who post regularly here know to take heed to themselves lest they fall. I also see men who walk in the fear of God (Genesis 39:9) I see men who keep the covenant they made with their spouse. (Job 31:1) I see men who desire to mortify the deeds of the flesh (Romans 8:13) Who desire to please God (Hebrews 11:5,6) I see men who are circumspect in their walk (Romans 13:14) Men who are motivated by their love to God to keep themselves pure. (II Corinthians 7:1)
You see any man (boys included per post in other thread), saved or unsaved, as those who only think lustful thoughts about woman all the time, from the baby girl in just a diaper to an elderly lady working in her garden in shorts and top and anything in between.
So, others who post here and would like to answer, which do you think describes the men who post here?
sc from OH, before you make a comment on a post it would be a good idea to READ the comment. pennned said "I" (not the men) interacted with the women, she did not say anything about the men doing so other than saying good morning. The women actually told her (which means unless you were there and can dispute her claim your opening question is basically accusing her of lying) that they could tell a difference because the countenance of the men was seen by them as demonstrating compassion. When they passed them in the regular activity of where they were going (probably on their way to work which is why their wives were not with them) they spoke a kind word. Also, note she said, they WENT ON THEIR WAY. She didn't say they tried to witness to or have any other interaction with them. There is nothing sinful about being pleasant to people you pass on the street.
Talking about men having affairs is something that would not apply to those who come here. (that is who you are talking to, the people who come to a site that has sermons, Christian music, Christian literature, Christian podcasts, etc. not exactly the material a person involved in an affair would want to consume) so one would wonder why you would even mention it.
Just the facts, (aka sc)I am certain if your statement was accurate that porn would not be a multi- billion business. I really don't think it appropriate for detailed discussion.
Ladybug you are a wise and spiritual lady. The testimony of Scripture is everybody is drawn away due to their OWN lust and enticed and that that lust brings forth sin. A sin, that our Lord stated, proceeds from their own heart.
seeing that rapist victims range from young babies to elderly woman, then it is not about their attractiveness and skimpy attire. You can put a model in seductive attire next to most men and they will not rape her. It is about power and control. If a girl is broadcasting a message of openness it is to a man to whom she is also attracted not to a power abuser she would shun.

The secular news media played it up a lot and focused especially on how wonderful the church was in extending forgiveness to the shooter. I didn't see that reported in SA News; I wonder why.
From the SA archives

That would make this the 5th article about the shooting.
The secular news media made it all about the confederate flag,racism, and gun control while downplaying or not mentioning the forgiveness being offered by the church members.
Please note the 6/21/2015 story that was posted on SA and had 30 comments.

First of all, when you read the document you didn't bother to post a link to, it does not state you are marrying the state, it says you have legal obligations to the state. Those obligations affect your taxes, your insurance coverage, etc. and would be there whether or not you received a state marriage license or not. For all the faulty logic of the link you did post, why did the author not tell his congregates not to file taxes married jointly as that, using the same type of thinking, would be marrying the federal government. If you don't want any legal obligations to the state, find another country to live that has no central government.
Much more could be given to sure your claim to be spurious but I doubt you will be persuaded otherwise.
