Jim, glad to hear you using that intelligent mind God gave you! the scourge of flu? no, the scourge of autism... have you ever had to take care of a severely autistic kid and hear them moaning for hours in pain? Someone's got to be the grownups! I've seen families leave churches over this because they aren't getting the basic help they need to survive, and they can show you the date on the calendar when the brain swelling and fever was initiated and then the downturn and the original child never coming back. I often wonder where the grownups are to stand in the gap for them, instead of endlessly proclaiming their allegiance to men in white coats who repeatedly demonstrate their allegiance to corporate advancement and not the health of those they serve.
there is always going to be sin in the world because people are sinners. liberal tactics to manage people to get them not to sin just leads to heavy handed management of those who make good decisions! ignoring and denying sin is good for no one and abortion is taking an innocent life. I know people who want to adopt but many of the social agencies are being filled by the rainbow coalition, so to speak, who do not take kindly to Christian values, so more children suffer. There's no replacement for biblical teaching and a loving, Godly home for the health of a community.
and giving girls birth control pills is advocating fornication and breaking them from the cycle of life they were born into.... to grow up, be married, have a stable life and have children of their own. instead its chemical lobotomy, usery, and stds...liberalism robs everyone!
praying for believers facing this Orwellian environment.
woe to the men who lose their jobs because they didn't worship at the feet of the sodomy lobby and then their wives find a job as a cashier to make do... the church will not receive you. they will say you were not conservative and not patriotic.
woe to you who's pastor is meeting with lgbt to tell how mean you all have been while you can't feed your kids.
just know there are many brethren out there who know and are praying for you!
there is truly an attack on the family, will the organized institution called "church" be a buffer?

the country that aids and abeds ISIS or whatever its called today with western funding, as Syria loses its stability (original goal for the western commun's) and Iraq Christians lose their heads, the last thing I"m concerned about is their fairytales.
