Just go back in SA and read the myriads of comments concerning BG and his death. This subject has been beaten to death and we're not going to convince anyone. Redeem the time by spending your efforts talking about things edifying such as spreading the Gospel. BG is a waste of time. Just speaking some wisdom in love.

I will continue to pray for you and him. Satan is in good form. He has us terrified to tell the truth, please see that. In this climate how long do you think it will be before we are jailed for "hate speech"...
Y'know, my wife and I have had a similar discussion on more than one occasion. It is quickly getting to the place where we will have to turn off the computers and internet and go underground. There's too much at stake. Am I willing to risk my children's safety to win an argument on Islam? No. We pick our battles and avoid those that really don't matter in the long run. As long as we are able to spread the Gospel and serve our fellow man, then we are doing what we're supposed to. This internet is just a luxury for us.

His desire is for the liberal left to take over and govern according to that leftist agenda. All politics are evil, regardless of what affiliation they claim.

Yep. For sure. But I wonder...how would a WW3 affect us as Christians in this world? Canada? The States? Should be interesting from a spiritual point of view. Are we ready for the coming persecution? Something to think about, especially since we can't even work as a team on this little forum.
Yep. The last church we tried to attend had the same sort of environment. One pastor, does everything, won't allow anyone to do anything unless he is controlling it, writing it, doing it himself. There's only 5 people in the church, with our family, it would have been 11. Of course, the very same pastor complained the whole time that he was overworked, stressed and exhausted. A wise man delegates and trusts. Trump is neither wise or godly. He is a business man who has buried many, many of his competition and he will/ is taking that sort of mentality into his presidency. He is in charge, and that's final. If you cross him, he'll bury you. Imagine Putin and Trump squaring off in the ring over Israel?

I do hope you understand Kev, that John's pulling your leg. He's either a complete phony or he's really out to lunch (a looooong extended lunch).

That's why I am going by the name Been Watching because I was blocked again last night. It seems SA has a blacklist. Doesn't surprise me. I have been censored before (not surprising, I know) and it happens usually when I stick to my guns and continue to ask someone for scriptural evidence for their opinions. If I keep it up, I tend to get shut down.

And the majority of kids prefer games, violence, immorality (yes, even in elementary schools), etc. most kids do not love their parents all that much, and many parents see their kids as burdensome. We all wish that every kid would want to spend time with their parents, but I'm afraid that kids would rather spend time doing something else. That's just my 2 cents.
Absolutely agree. Children these days (and parents) are so wrapped up in their own things that family time will consist of the kids on their electronic devices and the parents on theirs, but all in the same room. Homework is essential for growing minds. Even though we homeschool, our kids still have 'homework'. It helps them stay focused. Nothing turns a kids brains to mush than senseless playing.

I find Watcher's comments Biblical as his view is supported in God's Word. An article worth reading can be found here: http://bereansdesk.blogspot.ca/2012/12/what-christian-modesty-looks-like.html It covers what modesty should look like in a Christian woman. It quotes Scripture to back its viewpoint.
Thank you AllForHIsGlory. Great article and it covers many aspects of modesty that I didn't even think of.

I have a habit of posting, then leaving to do work, etc. and not reading all the comments in response. I doubt if I'll ever improve in this area; but it isn't helpful and leads to misunderstandings. Watcher, I get what you and others are saying about modesty. I've probably blogged on it in the past. My focus was on the victims of Larry Nassar and defending their honor. I probably do sound grandmotherly because I am a grandmother! Please know I've also lamented over compromise in the church. But I've also come to realize that we aren't all at the same place in our sanctification and to extend grace to others who are trying to live a Christian life. I also think it's vital one is a member of a local church. So, please don't try to be a lone ranger. It won't work. We need each other, as well as hearing the word preached and receiving the sacraments.

Amen. It's hard to be patient and loving with people when they fight so hard to defend their lifestyle and sin. The problem is, they don't think it's sin. I've had this discussion with Christians before regarding the Super Bowl's halftime show. They say it's okay to watch because they don't have a problem with what's being shown. Could we say the same thing if a Christian decided to attend a Gay Pride parade? There needs to be accountability on both sides of the coin, doesn't there?

Funny, 'cause I tried posting three comments and none of them went through. But as soon as I changed my moniker, then I had no problem. Weird.
I remember commenting on another site (first letter E, last word Bible), and everything was okay when I answered a question about JW's. Someone wanted to know if they would go to heaven. I said no, and gave scripture. Next thing I knew, one of the site admins emails me and tells me I am being presumptuous and unloving and I have no right to speak up for God. Whoa...imagine a Christian doesn't have the right to speak for God? Anyway, next comment was edited to make it more loving, then the next ones were deleted altogher. I sure hope SA doesn't go that direction. It'd be an awesome shame.
