You and me both Christopher. There are some products and stores that I am boycotting right now. I decided that it doesn't matter anymore if no one else joins me; it shouldn't because I don't answer to them. I answer to My Lord and my conscience. My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. (Jer 4:19)
The irony is Amazon is the lesbian of myth and fantasy. The company has her tendrils in practically every aspect of the consumers' lives. She is like the end time Babylon the Great.
Au contraire mon frere! Boycotts have gotten many a conservative fired or banned. The problem is Christians with no convictions. Whatever form Revelation's "Beasts" take in reality believers better boycott and not take the mark. The apostate church is a queen that will drag you down to the pit. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. (Rev 18:7)
Atlanta should be boycotted also. These principalities, states, and big corporations (like Apple, Twitter, FaceBook, and Google) put a ban on the saints and Truth all the time. Money talks.
The diversity of God's creation! Beauty, feast, danger, love, simplicity, complexity, and even good and evil alive together.
Watching the video, one of the mathematicians shared what was quoted in the Talmud by two popular rabbis who seemed pretty disappointed at how the world which God had affirmed was all good became this mess. He and they agree that they would suggest to God not to remake the world again because they feel it would digress into the same thing it is today.
The other mathematician was excited and show how all the "evil" in the world clearly verifies Scripture and reveals why the same Creator who created the world as good not only knew what the decay of sin would do to His creations but also how He made it possible that it could also be redeemed. Yes, creation is subject to vanity and is groaning, awaiting for the us (the adopted children of God) to be fully manifested.
Play the video. Better yet, save the Youtube link and keep it like a highlighted verse in your Bible. This is important. I love Mathematics. I may even think of it as one of the Truths of God. They are deconstructing Darwin's Origin of the Species. Evolution's theory is shown to be false and in the struggle "Evolution vs God" Evolution is down for the count.
The liberal quack doctors and psychologists who promote these procedures and drugs have an agenda. And the big pharmaceuticals are taking advantage by rushing these drugs to market. All should be sued down to their underwear. And these naive "silly" parents are allowing them to play Frankenstein with their children. The reason is that every perversity from homosexuality to transgender to gender identity contrary to biological reality is pseudo-science.
I must admit as a Black man that I am grateful to the LORD for putting me in Hams clan. However, I am very disappointed in the average American Black pastor. The vast majority profess publicly to be pro-life and a good portion may actually vote that way in most instances, but the Black women in their pews are having abortions at a very high rate. This may be due to the growing number of Black pastors who are women. I have witnessed these women pastors having a negative influence on Black men where they relinquish their headship in marriage and their sons become feminized.
I think it is good that some decided to give the President an audience. To quote him, "What have (they) got to lose?" They have lost for over 50 years with the lying Democrats.
One more thing: I was born in Baltimore but thank the LORD he sent me down to NC to be raised by my grand parents when I was 6 months old. When I was 14 I was almost shot in Baltimore by a 12 year old; on Christmas day no less! Many of these Democratic ruled cities and states are the worse run. If they vote in a Republican they prosper for a bit and then all the gains are lost and squandered by their Democratic replacements who often bring up the race card to get them out of office.
Great discussion. That is what I love. However, I wouldn't exactly use the word "criticism". "Discussion" is more appropriate.
Don't forget that we would never have the parables of the lost sheep, coin, nor son if somehow they never got away from their Owner. Remember, the shepherd looked for the lost sheep and the woman swept the house for the lost coin, but the dead son returned to a father who only left the house to greet his return. I just don't want our opinions to be in the same manner of the elder brother. His response to his brother's return revealed how he thought of him when he was away. Who knows, it is possible that his treatment of his brother may have played a part in his brother's leaving. Regardless, let us pray for Joshua's return and rejoice with the Father when he does.
"Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers." (Luk 22:31-32)
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1Co 13:7)
And have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear, hating even the garment stained by the flesh. (Jud 1:22-23)
And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will. (2Ti 2:24-26)
3 times sounds like harassment to me. Sounds like a counter-suit is in order against the state of Colorado for allowing this to be repeated. A 7 or 8 figure dollar amount should do it. And a civil suit against the plaintiffs should make other sodomites think twice about a fourth suit.
You know, all of this immoral legal nonsense can be stopped if the cowards who profess their faith in empty words would attest their faith in democratic actions.
"It's a "quintessential sacred cow," he added, and the pro-choice side is deeply concerned about suppressing research that could undermine the presuppositions upon which that "sacred cow" is so fragilely constructed. As Jacobs says, it is the phenomenon that social scientists call "identity protective cognition" that leads to human beings deliberately obfuscating and avoiding the search for truth."
"The mystery of lawlessness is already at work." This quote by the Apostle Paul is revealing. Abortion, ANTIFA violence, transgender delusion, and all the rest of the Leftist lunatic "sacred cows" makes me scratch my head. Another quote: "Professing to be wise, they became fools." Truth (and scientific truth at that) is a poison pill to them so they "suppress the truth in unrighteousness."
95% of biologists worldwide is pretty overwhelming. The other 5% must be extraterrestrial spies who don't believe unborn humans are really human.
Jim Lincoln wrote: Carl: excerpt from, " " https://tinyurl.com/y67hylyk As far as I've seen, the Republicans have not come up with a plan to support women for the high cost of giving birth, something they should be demanded to help these women out
You're right, birthing costs have skyrocketed. Billions of women in the past had kids for free. If you were to compare birthing a baby to abortion both could involve a certain amount of money but only one would repeatedly result in the death of a human being.
And that is the bottom line, isn't it? Some people take a laisez faire attitude toward the life of strangers while elevating the value of their own. Jesus says, "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Mat 16:26)
What will you give in exchange for you soul, Jim. Would it be the same value as the soul of a baby? What price does Jesus put on the souls of mankind? Suffer the little children to come unto Christ to be blessed and fulfill their destinies.
Jim, why can't you liberals see the absurdities of so-called reproductive rights?Reproduction is fundamental to all life. All life survives by reproduction. Most sane humans get that; except a few foolish hypocritical humans. All they want is just the sex; without consequence. The big consequence of sex without reproduction leads to unfettered genocide and ultimately extinction. And they have the nerve to tout the evolutionary trope "survival of the fittest" and yet deprive themselves of progeny. That is truly unfit.
I agree with Rand Paul. Republicans have had multiple opportunities since Trump's election to defend PP. However, I don't think they are merely cowards. Some are Manchurian candidates disguised as Conservative.
This is happening on our watch! Our generation and the generations that follow have allowed this gender seducing abomination to infect our children. Science, again, is clearly on our side. However, we are totally ignorant on how to battle the enemy in spiritual warfare. Instead of complaining, we should get on humble knees and repent (with fasting and mourning) and pray that this stronghold be confronted with an even stronger response from the heavenlies.
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. (Mat 4:1)
And immediately the Spirit cast him out into the wilderness. And he was there in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the Adversary, and he was with the beasts, and the messengers were serving him. (Mar 1:12-13)
Now full of the Holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan, and was being led by the Spirit into the wilderness, being tempted by the devil for forty days. And he ate nothing in those days, and later, after they were completed, he hungered. (Luk 4:1-2)
And you will remember all the way which Jehovah your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, to prove you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments, or not. And he humbled you and allowed you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, neither did your fathers know, that he might make you to know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of Jehovah. (Deu 8:2-3)
Seems good and natural for a child to hesitate when a Father presents them with a tough test. Remember the Son in Gethsemane?
The Pope needs to be rebuked as Peter was rebuked. It is not his prayer to cha
Thanks Frank for the empathy. Pray that my heart is not so turbulent concerning this issue as to fall into despair. But I don't seek peace of mind; peace of mind is impossible when the innocents are being murdered. To me, those who have peace of mind concerning abortion have become callous in heart. I echo the martyrs in Revelation 6:10 who cry "How long, O Lord..."? There the cry is against the despots who had taken it upon themselves to murder those who are Christ's witnesses. But here, in the states and territories of the U.S. it is the people who are to blame; mothers, fathers, those who have sworn to uphold both the Hippocratic Oath and the Constitution.
In Ezekiel 9:4 only those who mourned against the evils done in Jerusalem were given a life saving mark. Even the pleading of the prophet did not stop the LORD's judgment against the people of His beloved city. How much more will America be held accountable by Him?
I will not dare to hope. I am so exasperated. The NC House failed to overturn the veto of our Governor on our Born Alive Bill (requiring doctors to provide life saving care to infants who survive an abortion). Only 3 Democrats broke the party line and we needed 5 more. The Senate overrode the veto by 1 vote and it was provided by 1 courageous Democrat. I wrote him a letter of thanks and encouragement.
My exasperation comes in knowing that many who say in polls that they are pro life are liars. For example, the great majority of Blacks say they are pro life and yet, that 1 courageous Democrat in the NC Senate was the only one who proved that he was pro life. And on the House side only 2 of the 26 Black members voted for life. They seem content with nearly half of our conceived race being aborted.
Of course, the Born Alive Bill had nothing to do with stopping abortion but caring for the life of the baby that survived the abortion. Clearly, the mother has forfeited what legal right she had over the child once the infant was free of the mother and the umbilical cord was severed. It should be the state's duty to care for any human being struggling to survive. Clear as day? Not in these hypocrites eyes and consciences.
"Pro-abortion rhetoric is starting to sound like the antebelleum defense of slavery"? is a vast understatement. As evil as slavery was to my ancestors and is still prevalent today in many forms with many races and classes it is still an evil at least a level or two below mothers murdering their unborn. And to call the newly conceived "parasites" and hype and promote abortion as "good" reveals what a mind that has become shipwrecked is like. Case in point, Sarah Jones calls abortion "morally good." A former evangelical? If she ever was.
