yep. and this commnst sweep will not be allowing such things. however trump is indicating more conservative supreme court and states rights, anti abortionists should be lining up and ready to reestablish rights of the unborn in their states.... why do you think the left is working so hard to stop this?
for instance, sessions who bravely worked against segregation and KKK in his work in AL decades ago, was met with angry leftists during his hearing..... first question was if he would respect women by protecting abortion?
in other words.... the real issue for them was keeping abortion these next four years.
seeing as its a fake news newspaper, I give little to no credence to their attempts to undermine the gospel. do transgenders not have "the right" to hear the chaplain's message of the covenant of grace? are they "banned" from hearing the truth? are they imprisoned by the world order and not allowed to escape their captivity?
the reformers spent generations working through these things, is it really that easy? I have no animosity towards our presbytarian friend here, in fact, I'm thankful he's brought out some legitimate concerns as to the pietism so prevalent today. (separating the disciplines from the public life witness)
Glad to see the comments as well that reflect many are studying the Word themselves.

"There is a way of remembering griefâ€”that is not wrong, that is not a mark of unsubmission, and that brings rich blessing to our hearts and lives. There is a humanizing and fertilizing influence in sorrow rightly accepted, and "the memory of things precious, keeps warm the heart that once enfolded them." Recollections of losses, if sweetened by faith, hope and loveâ€”are blessings to the lives they overshadow."
beautiful and thanks for the reminder, some will reach heaven's gates sooner than others, and only the Lord knows this.
thank you Dave for your kind words towards the sisters here.

its amazing how principled men will put themselves in harm's way to stand against groups like the KKK/BLM that try to divide by race and incite violence, while unprincipled men stand to the side and mock.
and when the truth comes out, they do not apologize or clear the air, but just leave the accusation there.
reminds me of how Hillary once said she was under enemy fire when she was perfectly safe. Brian Williams had his own Iraq story.
While real heroes went in during the 13 hours to try to save those men, during Benghazi, when orders were given to stand down.... under Hillary.

the church is a covenant community and there are standards of morality, behavior, and acts of compassion that God says we owe one another.

too many families suffering in silence.
new populations move in and wonder what on earth is wrong with American children?
no one warns them either.
and it goes on and on.
this stuff has come out in the open now.
pray for trump bringing in RFK to oversee a commission on this topic... there was one insider caught in fraud on tape who has said repeatedly that he will only testify officially before congress, no interviews..
this subject of big pharma and eugenics alone is enough for the agitators to arctic blast us with their army of snowflakes.
Erik Casey wrote: Kev, i'm sure you know all the Scripture passages we use to support infant baptism. These passages will not help yours or my position. The real battle ground for this issues resides in our presuppositions. For a Presbyterian it is convenantal and for a Baptist it is Freedom of Religion (FoR). If you would like to have a conversation on this topic you can e-mail me.
if you were interested to read on 1689 federalism, you might find that the Baptist position was also covenantal, that there are some differences in interpretation of the covenants.

I saw part of the hearing yesterday. the man is so above board in his actions compared to predecessor and when the lies wouldn't work, the dems came right in with first line of questioning, making sure that he would protect abortion and sodomite rights.
the dems are refusing to represent the nation, in denial of their duty.
when o came in, the congress passed his nominees quickly to keep the gov in session.
they are aborting regular business, taking their place as dismantlers and agitators, to keep the new administration from functioning.
lets pray that sessions has his place, they have no reason to stop the process, he has been and continues to be an honest man...
