Jim Lincoln said, "Of course one of the errors in the article is that drug used is a disease and not a sin." You're right, Jim. And even among Christian rehabilitation programs, very few are willing to call it a sin.
Jim, since you love statistics(and assuming that the ones you bring to the table are accurate, which is always highly doubtful), the average American is 250 times more likely to die from Alzheimer's than to be killed by a right-wing extremist. Alzheimer's is a serious brain disorder very similar to the one you must have gotten smoking all that cornsilk.
One would definitely have to be a flake to consider a pro- sodomy, pro-infanticide position as "decency." This may be a "win" for the Democrats, but it is a distinct loss for decency and for America. "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."
Jailer: "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" Paul: "Dude, are you serious? The Book of Acts is projected to top out at 28 chapters, and it would take at least 50 chapters to answer such a complex question. Why don't you ask us something simpler, like how to have peace in the Middle East?"
A man who was serving a life sentence once told me that if you ever get in a fight in prison, there is only one rule, and that is to do whatever is necessary to win. The Democrats have been doing this for years, and with considerable success. The only reason they lost the White House in 2016 was because Donald Trump was one Republican who was willing to fight just as dirty as they did. Even if all of the allegations against Moore prove false, the Democrats won't care. They won. Nothing else matters.
John UK, there is no "official" IFB position on what repentance is, although most do believe that repentance is essential for salvation. Many teach that to repent is to "turn from sin." If that means to stop sinning, then nobody is saved, according to such verses as Ecclesiastes 7:20 and I John 1:8 and 10. Others say that repentance and faith in Christ are simply two sides of the same coin, and not separate things at all. I personally believe the sinner must repent OF unbelief (Mt. 21:32, Mk1:15, II Tim. 2:25, Jn. 3:18, 36); repent FROM dead works (Heb. 6:1); repent TOWARD God (Acts 20:21, cf. Heb. 6:1, Acts 26:20); and repent UNTO salvation (Acts 11:18, II Cor. 7:10, II Pet. 3:9 cf. Jn. 3:14-16). My belief is that true repentance is a change of heart, wrought by the Holy Ghost, that results in a changed life. Not a perfect life by any means, but definitely a different one. Now bro I have to go to work, so good luck getting all the worms back in the canð
