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
Sunday, June 21, 2015 Families of Charleston victims forgive shooting suspect in court

Thursday, June 18, 2015 Suspect in âhate crimeâ shooting at Charleston church named as Dylann Roof

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.

To st Elmo, the links I put up were records from the state of Connecticut. You're the one that needs to not believe everything you read on the internet.
Solutions, I take it that means you have no locks on your doors, you leave you keys in your car, and if your loved was about to step into danger (like the path of an oncoming vehicle) you wouldn't do anything because it would show your lack of trust in God.
When God was going to flood the earth, He had Noah build an Ark first.
Brother Saint Elected Elmer I wrote: No need to fret, this is just another obvious hoax. This Parker is probably laughin all the way to the bank with the other Parker, Sandy Hook star, Robbie Parker. And the writers of this script are surely laughin at all the gullible ones that actually believe such obvious nonsense.
The Connecticut State police took over the investigation from the local authorities. Accordingly, the Sandy Hook Elementary victims were included in Connecticut's statewide records, but they were not tallied as crimes of any description in Newtown in 2012. Rather, the deaths were classified under "State Police Misc." in separate records. (Snopes)
"Saint" Elmo does huge disservice to those friends and loved ones who lost someone near and dear to them and he says it is just a laugh?? He wouldn't have such a callous attitude had it been those close to him.

I would think relocation might be necessary. It is probably just a matter of time before they rewrite the law to make it mandatory for all regardless. Very sad to see.

Would you be so kind as to show that links for that? I searched evangelical promotes vaccine and found page after page of evangelical being against vaccines. Am I missing something? Thanks for the update.

sc, this will be my last post on this topic. You can continue to put out all the misinformation you wish. I did not imply you were not saved, in fact just the opposite. I never said your posts should be removed. Because the forum is not about me, I choose not to address the other misinformation in your last post except to say you should find Christopher's testimony on the Hillsong Choir article around 8/7/2015 because it is diametrically opposite of your assumptions about all men and shows what you imply does not exist, the power of Christ in the lives of believers.
Our Lord said He came to seek and to save those who are lost. I am thankful there are chaplains trying to reach these men for Christ, you don't think they should, that is the bottom line.
You cannot name a false statement I have made. The only person I have ever met that thinks that football is about cheerleading is you. Nobody else does, because it is not. Logic would dictate they have more covering than a stripper. It is obvious your only care about those who choose to be cheerleaders is to condemn them, you have no real concern for them at all. If you did you would have pondered why there isn't someone trying to reach the girls also. If I had a daughter she wouldn't be out anywhere dressed immodestly.
Football is not going away. Thank God some try to minister to these players. Might I add that inner city missions minister to those who only made the thread because you brought them up. Again, praise to God that places like Pacific Garden Mission reach out to those destitute drunks, drug addicts, strippers, and woman of the street with the message of hope they can find in Christ.
I hope others remember when you post on other threads that in this one you chose to side with those who are the stated enemies of God, ("The athesist actually do Christ more of a service...") than with the chaplains who are trying to reach these young men for Christ. Your desire is that the light of the gospel should not shine in darkness but must be extinguished.
Really, sc, they aren't ministering to a football game, they are ministering to football players. If I went I would be with the crowd, the chaplains are with the team, you can't be this dense. Why do you have an obsession with strippers, if they are at the the game, they are clothed and again, hello, the chaplains minister to the players not the crowd. Is that too hard for you to understand. There might even be churches that go and pass out tracts to the incoming crowd, but the article is about chaplains whose ministry is to the players. The atheist group isn't talking about the crowd, they want those who minister to the PLAYERS to be removed. SA reminds us all the time to stay on topic, and you have yet to do so in any of your comments. Finally, I challenge you to back up your rhetoric, where have I EVER defended the football game in any post on this article?
sc This is not a bar (the ministry isn't to the people in the stands, and no football program serves their athletes alcohol), brothel (again nothing like that going on during practice or game), or strip club. You need to have a burden for sinners to be reached with the gospel that excels your pet peeves. You sound like the Pharisees in the cited verses.
Perry White, in this case, has a crummy point. We all know they are not going to abolish the football program, so it is meaningless, and he obviously doesn't live in South if he thinks people here don't help each other out, including the poor and disadvantaged.
The atheist group are misrepresenting the Constitution with their alleged wall of separation between church and state, but that is a matter for a different discussion.
It is sad to see those who name the name of Christ, Who came to seek and to save those which are lost, side with the atheist group and desire to the light of gospel be removed from a place they term paganistic and idolatrous.
Here we have preachers who have a burden to see these young men come to know Christ and serve Him. Yet the preachers are being condemned because of the place of their ministry. Some would rather take away the work of the chaplain's ministry (that is what the atheist desire so siding with them is saying the same) because of the despised group with which they work. Seems like I heard that before.
"And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them, They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." Matthew 9:11-13

The RCC violates the 10 commandments. They make their own rules and throw out God's, that is a violation of the 1st commandment. They have graven images, violates the 2nd (don't say they don't bow to them, I watched it happen at a Catholic wedding where the couple knelt down in front of the statue of Mary and offered a prayer). They have penances, a violation of the 8th and 10th commandment. They have obviously violated the 6th commandment. Every mass is a violation of the 9th commandment. I am sure they list could go on, but the Scripture says if you fail in one commandment you have failed in all (James 2:10).
So, the question is, according to YOUR statement that morality only comes from the 10 commandments, does that mean the RCC is without morals?
Cult spotter wrote: The cult of Gil Rugh claims don't preach morals. But the Bible says that the law is a school master to bring us to Christ. What is the law of God but the strict moral requirement of God? Jim is a blind follower and a troll. I suggest you go find another bridge Jim because there are no goats here for you.
Gil Rugh didn't say don't preach morals, Jim from Lincoln did. Gil Rugh said don't preach morals as a way to heaven. Gil Rugh even has no problem with moral laws (I listened to the sermon) it is simply a Jim from Lincoln interpretation. He holds it because of the so called "Christian right". To Jim, anything conservative is not right but wrong. That is apparently the way "independents" think. He has no issue with the liberal crowd imposing their "morals" on society, just so those on the conservative side sit in silence and obey them that have the rule over them. It what happens when your viewpoint is dominated by political thinking. He has kind of a French Revolution mentality.
