And then of course those born to that generation will also not bear children and on and on it goes. From the article: "Thatâ€™s the plan anyway, as Russia is now fully invested in granting the equivalent of approximately $8000 for every new child welcomed into the expanding embrace of Mother Russian." I remember years ago that Germany used to give extra income to those who had children. Not sure if they still do it. Mother Russia is appropriate language for them. Come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly!
It is a scientific fact: If your parents didn't have children, neither will you. Shocking, isn't?

My van's broken down, Brandon...some possums walked in front of it and I got a mess of flat tires from their stupidity. I hate to say but some of them might have gotten run over. Can you swing by and pick it up for me? Put the possums in the van and I'll take care of them when I get the van back. You know where IHOP is don't ya?

Y'know ol boy, it's so good to hear this from someone else, besides hearing myself saying it all the time. Thank you. I use the illustration of a big large painting. Let's say a canvas as tall and wide as the Empire State building. It has the picture of a meadow, trees, a lake and some mountains. You walk up to the painting and all you see is black. You comment, "Some painting. All I see is black". But then someone says, hey, come over here and look at it. And so you take an elevator up to another tall building a few miles away and then the painting snaps into focus and that blackness you saw is the shadow beneath a beautiful flower. When we are allowed to see life through God's eyes, our perspective changes, doesn't it? Then we realize we are all part of a bigger picture. Good stuff, Christopher!
Anne wrote: I wonder about the "fortunate enough" to stay home comment... How much does it costs to hire a nanny/babysitter? And what does the commute of Mom cost? The added vehicle insurance, licensing? How about Mom's work clothes, makeup, hair-stuff? The cost of food since nanny's being fed now plus mom-on-the-go; and meals need a quick fix so convenience over homemade needs to be purchased. Technology upgrades (cell phone, tablets)? If these costs are added up I would suspects we're seeing where Mom's paycheck is going. It was tough going from two incomes to one... until we realized exactly HOW we were spending the money God was entrusting to us. So much was... Prov 10:22 & 30:8
Very, very true! It's a trap that most people have swallowed. Our children NEED to have mom home. Many will say, 'We can't afford it!', but that's not exactly true. Personally, we have had to cinch in the belt on many things in our lives, and have had to become very creative in order to keep mom home. The whole idea of sending our kids off to a gov't run daycare/school is not an option..period. We make sacrifices to protect our children. That's the most important point to us.

The connection you're trying to make is just not there, And this might sparke some discussion, but what do you mean by "The True Holy Bible." Are you talking about a particular version? @penned, I've not surrendered any unborn child to "their categories" which I'm not sure what you mean by that, but I've invested time and money to defend the unborn. And I'm not sure what you mean by surrendering the New Covenant in the name of tolerance, perhaps you can flesh out your point.
Have you no ears to hear and eyes to see? Jesus' laptop wasn't working properly either.

Frank, It makes no difference what the stupid Pope states that Catholics and Muslims worship the same god. Catholics worship Jesus as God whereas Muslims don't worship Jesus as God.
Christopher000 wrote: Hey Watcher, interesting take. Mine is a little different, and I see God's providence in making sure, since time began, that she would be the one sitting in the seat at that moment. I see passengers whose time wasn't up, passengers that He has plans for, or maybe even for the pilot herself... There was a couple in New York recently who had to hire a nanny. They did their due diligence with references and background checks, etc., and hired her. Shortly into her employment, the nanny stabbed the 2yr old and 6yr old to death. Anyone who can stay home full time, is fortunate, for sure.
Completely see your point Christopher. It's fascinating to see how some people are in the wrong (right) place at the right time and others are a second off. You see this with traffic accidents all the time. God has plans for everyone and they will follow that plan willingly or forcibly. That's the beauty of our sovereign God, isn't it? We are not left to our own devices, but controlled and made to follow His plan for our lives, good or bad. Prov. 16 is a good chapter that spells this out loud and clear. That story about the nanny, is why we would never allow anyone to babysit our kids at all. Good comment, Christopher.

More impressive to me that she can land a jet fighter on a pitching carrier deck in bad weather than land a 737 with one good engine and full controls on a 10,000 ft long runway. Piece of cake for a world class aviator like that. Good job, Captain!"
Not poo-pooing on this woman's parade. My hat goes off to her for her heroism, but you know what's even harder to do? Do you know what job is scarier and tougher to do than landing a passenger jet? Being a mom in this society. I didn't research this woman at all. Maybe someone can fill me in on the details. But is this woman a mom? Does she have kids? If so, who's taking care of them while she's playing hero?
I have an amazing wife. She mothers our four children on a daily basis. She home-schools, teaches piano out of the home and helps me in my business. She cleans up vomit, changes sheets when they're sick, cooks three meals a day...the list is endless. That's a hero in my books.

Agreed. I just wish instead of justifying these people and saying how good they were and how wonderful they were as Christians, people would be honest and tell it like it is. Use these poor damned souls as examples to strike fear into the hearts of those who are perishing.
@Tim...there is an obesity problem running (or shall I say waddling around). Maybe Johnny Sunset is getting some practice in that way.
@Connor...I thought the name was always lame until I found out what it stood for, but their stage presence was amazing. They could really sell themselves. Of course, I say this strictly from a human point of view.
God has planned all of this to suit His purposes. As sick and disgusting these people may be, they are doing nothing more than relating to a society that is sick and disgusting. Romans 1 tells us that God has abandoned mankind that turned their backs on Him. They asked for it, He'll pour it on. It will only get worse, before it gets any better.
Oh great. One of those eh? Well mine is the possum. Something just occurred to me today. JohnY wants to start a band. Maybe he could call his heavy metal rock band P.U.S.S.? Y'know, Possums Under Satan's Service. Just a thought. Having a flashback to the days when my household would be booming with the melodic sounds of KISS. If you don't understand, then you're too young, so be quiet.
Frank wrote: Wise comment brother. I always say I am one step away from being quadriplegic and one split second from eternity. It is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment. None of us know when our time will come, so we should always be prepared. Have a great day.
I always use the illustration of having a built in timer. It counts down continually and we all have a different amount of time. When will my timer run out? I don't know. So why would I waste my time on frivolous events and past-times? I watch Christians going sky-diving, surfing and other ridiculous wastes of time, and I say, what if you died in the middle of this "fun"? Is that how you want God to see you? Or spreading the Gospel and being alight?
I know we are all guilty of this, but I am also preaching to myself as well.
Frank wrote: There is nothing wrong with showing compassion when anyone dies. Their marriage was wonderful and no one relishes in the sadness that her loved ones will experience. But, let me add that she now understands that homosexual marriage is an abomination in God's eyes and that abortion is not some kind of personal choice; two things she publicly endorsed. And lastly, she now understands that the group skull and bones were and are satanic. She is now in God's hands and He will do what is perfectly righteous.
(sarcasm alert)...but she was such a nice lady! I know the Baptist pastor at that church that John attends on Sunday mornings believed that she was saved, so she much be.
It's a shame that we will inevitably run into those who will defend her and her so called faith. Apparently one's fruit doesn't matter anymore.

They'll be deployed in the Middle East to fight ISIS, and deployed in North Korea to take that Dictator.
