If you have never heard their testimony you should look it up. They were on birth control early in their marriage and had more than one miscarriage. They were told by their doctor the birth control "may" have caused the miscarriages. They repented and told God they would not get in his way. They have been fruitful!
Oh if all people who profess Jesus would simply get out of the way and allow The Lord to bless them with many sons and daughters!
Do any of you suppose a flat tax could solve all these issues? The federal government awards marriages with monotary incentives. There is a financial benefit to be married. If there wasn't I think this would all be a non issue.
I personally don't care if the government knows I am married. Why do I need their permission any how? Of course I got their permission and this I save money every year on my taxes. Not so if there was a flat tax.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God. (Deuteronomy 22:5 KJV)
There are two prevailing beliefs about this verse. On one side there are people who do not believe women should wear pants (any garmet with a crotch). Then there are people who believe "that which pertaineth unto a man" is a reference to military. I haven't personally studied it out.
Either way, it seems to me that women would be best to purposefully avoid the special ops!
We didn't learn about the "Red scare" in public school... Only taught us how great America became after "the New Deal". I suppose kids in school today will only learn how great the government is for protecting us. I agree, police state is coming. When is Rahm going to try that in the rough parts of Chicago?!

I don't doubt that an angel literally came to Joseph Smith, Jr. The bible is warning us about it, thus I believe that it is possible for an angel to preach another gospel. The Book of Mormon is another gospel. The god of Mormonism is Lucifer. His 5 point plan outlined in Isaiah 14:13-14 has manifested itself in many ways and is continuing to be manifest.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Which came first, the Bible or the Book of Mormon?
Don't let Lucifer win your soul. Let the Bible be your sole authority.
Another good analogy in describing your choice this November is "Coke or Pepsi?"
How come the Mormon "White Horse Prophecy" isn't mentioned much. I feel like if Romney is elected then the cult of Mormonism will become legitimized in most people's minds. This article alludes to this as well. Isn't that the goal of every cult? The Catholic Church has been pretty successful at this. Most people think Catholics are "Christians".
Voting for the establishment is wasting your vote. Both of these guys are hand picked to become the CEO of America, Inc. It doesn't matter which one wins.
Your "church" is mentioned in the bible, not in Acts, but in Revelation. She has a name: "MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
John wrote in Rev 17:6, "And I saw the woman druken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: And when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Many wonder at your "church". Many belong to your "church". Protestants are certainly an offspring of your "church". Born again believers are not.
I was talking to a man in Uganda and he knows more than you about this subject. He said in Uganda there are three different kinds of "christians" (people who profess with their mouths): Catholics, Protestants, and Born Again Peoples.
Jesus told a man named Nicodemus in John 3:3, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
The fact is, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT has crept in to churches made up of born again peoples. Protestants still have her leftovers. Chrismas is one of them. But Christmas is also celebrated by many born again peoples who are unaware that it is idolatry.
@Bibliophile @SteveR: Listen to Jeff Arthur's series "Why I'm Not a Protestant" (here on SA) and you will get it. The Catholic-Light denominations are not the true church. They, along with the Catholic church preach a works salvation.
Jesus has been true to his word, he is the Word so that shouldn't suprise anyone. Christ's church has never vanished from the face of the earth.
@priscilla-4, yes they are next. They are (and in fact already have) turning this into a civil rights case. To them it would be the same as saying "no people of color can have a wedding". As crazy as that sounds to us, that will be their argument now and in the future. Since they say they were born that way, not that they chose to live that way.
Before churches are labeled as hate groups, look for them to loose their 501(c)3 status. Maybe a decade away?... Anyone have thoughts?
