Schiff is a reprobate and a traitor. What can we expect from a prominent member of the party of slavery, Jim Crow and the KKK, and mass infanticide. A long history of division in America! It's truly amazing that scores of millions support what they have done and what they are currently doing to this country. If any of the founding men and women who have gone on to glory are aware of current events they must have the same response of Apostle John when he marveled with mouth agape at the woman rode the Beast as she drank from a cup full of abominations. America the Beautiful to America the Harlot.
"That being said, it was also noted that smaller hypothalamic volume was found to be associated with increased feelings of anger, and exhibited a strong correlation with depression."
I'll be very careful in what I say here because I am in no wise sexist, but this could explain the current wave of collective feminine anger these days. They don't give the specific identity of this pill or what type of birth control is involved, whether it is an abortifacient or not. Nevertheless, all types of birth control pills taken by women is akin to "spilling their seed on the ground" to avoid impregnation. I don't believe the One that commands us to "be fruitful and multiply" is none too pleased at this form of rebellion.
They are just being used to break down society. The ones who are most culpable are the so=called psychological professionals who refuse to treat them and declare them normal; and those in authority and government who promote them.
As a side note: Advertisers are showing an inordinate amount of same sex kissing in their commercials. Just makes me avoid their products.
Jim, why would you quote someone who would say something as insane as "she was voting for Hillary Clinton because she was "pro-life" not just "pro-birth?" Hillary (your "paragon of virtue") has been synonymous with "death" for nearly 30 years now both of the born and unborn. You seem to have a moral blind spot if see anything of virtue in Ms. Clinton. I don't mean to upset you by saying this. But I think you have to reevaluate how you came to that conclusion.
"Everybody does it" is the typical liberal response when they are caught doing dirt. But when it comes to funding ultra left activists and causes I quote a line from the title song of Bond movie: "Nobody does it better, baby you're the best!" DNC supporters has no equal.
I love their euphemism: "strategic guidance for effective philanthropy." Me, I call it "money laundering."
Catholic universities aside, these students are brain-washed and racist themselves. Demanding that 50% of required readings in curriculum be minority authors is arbitrary nonsense. And it is naive to think that demanding this will improve student outcomes, especially when you here the blatant racial bias against Whites by the many minority commentators in the media and podcasts. Instead of a racial Fahrenheit 451 against White authors professors should be mindful to emphasize what is common in all of humanity. To see the absurdity of these students' demands they should encourage the same thing happen in the universities in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Congo.
To answer Douglas Fir's question this was taken from abortion73.com:
"The CDC reports that during the 1970's, roughly 24% of all U.S. abortions were performed on black women. That percentage rose to 30% in the 1980's, 34% in the 1990's and has held at 36% throughout the 2000's. That means that about 31% of all U.S. abortions since 1973 have been performed on African American women. Based on the January 2018 estimate that there have been 60 million abortions in the United States since 1973, we can deduce that well over 18 million of them were performed on black babies. As of July 2017, the black population in the U.S. stood somewhere around 40 million, which means that abortion has reduced the size of the black community by more than 30%âand that doesn't include the children and grandchildren that would have been born to those aborted more than a generation ago."
I say that Ms. Sanger has been successful in America. And her prodigies in the Democratic Party want to pick up where Obama left off, not only here in America but also in Africa.
The sad thing is hardly anyone cares. Tsk tsk and a shake of the head is not enough. "And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their sexual immorality, nor of their thefts." (Rev 9:21)
Jim, I understand the rational of your last verse but I do not agree. I seriously doubt that the majority of any nation will ever be saved; even if everyone is persuaded to profess to be Christian. There is a reason that abortion exploded in 1973; it was made legal. And before that, illegal abortions such as so-called "back alley" abortions were no where as numerous as proponents say. The only sure way to reduce abortions in any nation is to outlaw it as violating the right to life a human being (murder). And applying stiff penalties of real jail time to everyone who participates from the parents on down through those who actually perform the abortions both professional and nonprofessional who claim to practice medicine. Also, jail and/or stiff fines for companies and individuals that manufacture drugs that induce abortions or harm the unborn child or pregnant mother.
I feel so strongly about this that I believe any nation that freely sanctions abortion should be labelled as a genocidal regime to its people; and be subject to everything from strong economic boycotts to even inducing a civil war or military invasion to save the lives of its innocent citizens. However, in America all it takes is elections and repentance of the do-nothing members of Christ's body.
That's not coming from me. I've been instructed to "speak the truth in love." I will not participate in their fraud nor encourage them in their sin. Thus, I will be respectful and polite and ask them their name; and use that in my conversation with them. So if the bearded man wants to be called "Alice" I will call him Alice. If the boy named Sue wants to be called "Sue" then I will call him Sue.
Corporate purpose âTo glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.â (copied from corporate website)
For a business that espouses such a motto should be careful how it should "glorify God." At the least, their new stance emboldens other enemies of Christ to bully other businesses that seek to "glorify God" in what they do. Most are not as large as Chick-fil-a and will be marginalized and crushed by the enemy.
They should read what the Apostle John wrote to Gaius, the owner of inn that welcomed traveling saints: "Beloved, you practice faithfully whatever you have worked toward the brethren and toward strangers; who testified to yourÂ° love* in the sight of the congregation*; whom you will do well, having sent onward worthily of God. For* they went forth on behalf of the Name, taking nothing from the Gentiles. Therefore we ought to receive those who are such, in order that we should become fellow workers for the truth. (3Jn 1:5-8)"
Great Sermon! Both the article and the comments of the elders were good and candid. As a Black believer I agree that the first obligation is to preach the Gospel. I would add that some type of written or oral statement be given to addresses the local congregation's stance in view of the overall community in which their members belong to. Ambiguity when it comes to race is a tool for the adversary.
The elephant in the room that was not addressed is that in most areas in America Christ is indeed divided racially; and if that is in your community then both sides are at fault. For Christ's sake, His body should not be divided like a chicken into white and dark. Remember: We have been given the ministry of Reconciliation. This is something that not only should be done but must and can be done for only the Body can do this. Don't confuse the Body with American citizenry. Let's get it straight in our own congregations first. Actions must be done by all leaders by both bodies by visiting and welcoming brothers and sisters from other congregations.
Finally, don't despise or judge how racial culture forms a local congregation's worship. In the Psalms are songs that require silence, exuberance, physical action, loud noise, tears, and even anger. If it is not your "thing" then don't participate.
"And I hated all my labor in which I labored under the sun, seeing that I must leave it to the man who will be after me. And who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will have rule over all my labor in which I have labored and in which I have shown myself wise under the sun. This also is vanity.Therefore I turned around to cause my heart to despair concerning all the labor in which I had labored under the sun.Because there is a man whose labor is with wisdom and with knowledge and with skillfulness, yet he will leave it to a man who has not labored in it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil. (Ecc 2:18-21)"
Aww, come on. Don't let little facts like these muddy the waters of impeaching Trump. And to bring Latvia into this. Tsk, tsk, tsk! And Kerry (gasp!). They make it sound like the Democrats had an international shake down of squeezing countries troubled by Russia; and we all know that all Democrats are lily-white innocent because these things hasn't been reported in the media outlets that we all should trust (i.e. NPR, MSNBC, CNN, NYTIMES, Washington POST, BBC and so on, and so on, and scooby-dooby-dooby).
