You'd think anyone admitting that they just don't know, would cause them to take a step back and think things over, especially those who call themself, "Christian". I remember a few years back when the medical community released a report claiming that babys being murdered in the womb don't feel any pain. I don't remember the full details, but pro-life doctors countered with 3D video, as well as other facts that had to do with the different stages of development, and the formation of nerves, and some brain and brain stem formation facts, and put that ridiculous claim where it belonged...in the trash. Anything to numb the masses even more.
Good points Chris! The issue of if a baby feels pain to me is sort of irrelevant. If I shoot someone in the head they donât feel pain. If I give someone an overdose of heroin, they donât feel pain. And of course the list goes on and on. Those that desire to murder the unborn for any reason will simply design an argument they thinks supports them.
I remember Obama being asked by Rick Warren when life began in the womb. Obama simply said that was above his pay grade. Just think about that for a moment; he didnât know but he was willing to murder the unborn anyway.
When the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary and she became pregnant with Jesus, God in the flesh, when die He become a human life? Was it when Mary felt him kick? What was He before that first kick? As you know, I could quote many verses that say life began in the womb. The formation spoken of below started at conception!
Isaiah 44:24 Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I [am] the LORD that maketh all [things]; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
Isaiah 49:5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb [to be] his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD, and my God shall be my strength.
Why do you offer your thoughts when no one believes them? What purpose do you have? Would the world be a better place if we had more abortions? How has that worked out for black communities? Your thoughts have increased STDs, single mothers, welfare and on and on.
I have always said that if satan can convince mankind of evolution, then he can convince them of anything. And I personally think that theistic evolution is worse than pure evolution. I never read or pay attention to scientific findings by either secular scientists or Christian scientists. I cannot understand why anyone would do that unless they are in fact scientists. Everyone would simply have itching ears.
But to me the clearest thing in scripture is the creation account and how it was in fact completed in 6 literal 24 hour days. Now, I donât have to understand an issue to know that issue is true. An example would be I cannot fully comprehend the incarnation, but I know it is true.
IMO, being part of Hillsong in any way means you are in fact serving satan. This fellow simply proves that.
I wonder what percentage of her votes came from feminists, homosexuals and those who support them, abortion proponents and those who donât want to work and will gladly take government handouts? I will answer my own questions; ALL OF THEM.
Isaiah 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
The Quiet Christian wrote: My wife & I have learned all this through experience. Life as a gift from God is not seen as a gift or as anything valuable. Families are too burdened, too scattered, or too self-centered to see to the care of their elderly parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, etc. Abortion has killed many of their children. Lust has destroyed their family connections. And these care centers pop up all over the landscape where seniors are left to die in less than adequate to downright abusive systems of care. Our stories are horrific. And they stem from the modernism/liberalism of the '50s and '60s that radically changed America.
The above comment and your below comment were both excellent. I just finished reading about the death of our Christian patriarchs and how much their families loved them and tried to make their deaths more comfortable and significant. What a difference a few thousands years make.
Anyway, I simply think that our society considers the elderly to be "useless eaters". They no longer produce things; their wealth distribution has already been decided and their families simply don't want to be bothered.
Eric Foley with Voice of the Martyrs Korea explained that despite 12 years of efforts launching balloons into North Korea, the South Korean government has now banned ministries from continuing with such efforts.
What we're facing now is a complete blockade for balloon launches and the justification for it, that the South Korean government is giving to us, is that it "fouls the air for peace." And what they mean by that is the North Korean government doesn't like balloon launches,' the missionary explained.
The above is from the article. I personally donât have any respect for Voice of the Martyrs and this simply supports my thoughts. Why would a genuine Christian ministry not do what they claim the Lord is calling them to do because of a political agenda? THEY WOULDNâT.
The Lord is the only one permitted to take an innocent life. So, if this lady was going to miscarriage, then she would miscarriage. So what she did was ask this pharmacist to assist her in murdering a life that was in fact a life at the time.
I could easily go into a Nursing Home and find someone whose death was near and certain. Now if this person was a burden in any way to his/her family, then why not simply pull the plug.
I remember when my mother had cancer and was on hospice and living with my sister. I went over for a visit one day and a hospice worker told me she only had 3 weeks to live. I asked them if they were sure and they said yes. I was of course devastated. She had been through chemo and was on a diet of very strong pain pills and was of course miserable. Anyway, she ended up living an additional 6 years. The main problem she had was trying to learn to live without the very strong pain medications she had been prescribed.
Now, I know this is probably not the norm, but I am so happy that my mother got to live for an additional 6 years and was "not given a choice" to live or die. Yes, it is appointed unto main once to die, but we simply never know when.
What is the real difference between sodomites claiming they are Christians and Mohler signing the Manhattan Declaration saying that Roman Catholics and Greek Orthodox belong to Christianity? I wonder which one confuses the most people?
These are rhetorical questions of course. The Manhattan Declaration wins hands down.
Teen cancer patient Jeremiah Thomas had one wish before he died and thanks to the "Make a Wish" foundation, he offered that wish to the pro-life governor of Texas. His request: treat abortion "like an act of murder."
I donât know anything about this teenager except that I agree fully with his thoughts that abortion is simply an act of murder.
I pray this young man is saved and he will spend eternity with our Lord and Savior.

Then we are in 100% agreement! If we are not for Him, then we are against Him.

I remember one time arguing with a catholic apologist. He knew that I had been baptized and confirmed into the catholic faith as a youth. Anyway, towards the end, he said that since I understood catholicism and still rejected it, then I had excommunicated myself.
What an honor that was for me and JohnY thinks it is a negative.
Unprofitable Servant wrote: Nation was founded shortly after the 2nd great awakening. You can see Christian principles and morals being upheld and practiced by most of our leaders and the population in general. That doesnât mean it should be considered a âChristian â nation but it does mean you cannot overlook the influence of Christianity in its founding and its time of infancy as a nation
I agree brother and you worded your comment very well. Our nation has been used by God to further the gospel probably more than any nation in history. Up until recently, the government has not hindered Christianity in the slightest. Christian moral principles are ingrained in our culture; that is for sure. And even though we now have such abominable behavior by millions, I still thank God that He allowed me to be born in this nation.
Dr. Tim wrote: Solitary confinement is often used for protection, rather than punishment. The vast majority of prison inmates are anti-Trump, so Jim Linkin would feel right at home among them his fellow outlaws.
Well said and thanks. I will admit to not even pondering it was for his own good.
The fact that âsome ofâ our founding fathers were Christian doesnât remotely mean they established or even desired to establish a Christian nation. If a Christian opens up a restaurant and posts Christians do-s and donâts on the wall, does that make it a Christian restaurant.
Our constitution never mentions the name of Christ and no moral litmus tests are noted. If the constitution represented a Christian nation, why has it been amended 28 times?
Belief that we are or were a Christian nation simply leads to dominionism.
1 Corinthians 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
As I understand it the main argument for immigrant leniency is that they are simply seeking better lives for their families. Now, let me say up front that those that manage to stay in America, legal or illegal, do in fact lead better lives.
Well to me if that is the primary argument they can make, then why not allow poor American citizens to shop lift to support their families. They could argue they donât have the necessary things they need to live; the same as the immigrant arguments. There is no difference and both groups are in fact breaking the law.
Now, if my imaginary American criminal had children, then they would indeed be separated from their parent(s) if they were sent to jail. All our border officials are doing is what is proper and correct under our current legal system. And I might add that our tax dollars are being lavished upon these children and their temporary dwellings are 100 percent better than the dwellings they left.
But, demonstrations and illogical arguments will sway many. Iâm sure the children of Americans that go to prison cry when they are separated as well.
We talk about Russia and China being our enemies; well IMO we should add Mexico.
