I wish they would call a fetus, a baby, and abortion for exactly what it is...murder. There's no rationalizing this, it's murder, plain and simple, but calling a baby a fetus, takes the edge off the crime because a fetus doesn't qualify as being human. A lady at a pro-choice rally years ago claimed, "it's not a baby until it's delievered". What nonscense and utter ignorance. Another said to the crowd that she just had an abortion and the crowd erupted in cheers and applause. Another said that her future plans were to be an abortion provider, and said she would be happy to do the procedures, as the crowd, once again, erupted in applause. I just don't get it. Not only is it murder, plain and simple, but the unbelievably painful, to the living baby, procedures are barbaric, to say the very least.
The topic may have come up already, and sorry if it has and I missed it, but doesn't the New King James seek to feminized God, or at least work to a non-specific gender? Maybe this was a thread topic recently, I'm not sure. To be honest, I have a NKJ, and bought it for its more familiar language flow which I really like, but I guess I should dig deeper into any problem areas, such as deletions or severe changes meanings, etc. the King James will always be number one for me anyway, because every other, well, most others can be argued against accuracy issues.
Friendly note/reminder for anyone stopping by...not a single person here hates Roman Catholics...not a one. What everyone takes issue with are the churches false doctrines which mislead, not those mislead who are called to come out of her or share in her terrible fate. The people here grieve for Roman Catholics, but hate the system of religion that ensnares them.
I'm never quite sure why anyone gets angry at those who state facts, as opposed to who those facts speak against and expose. Nobody here hates, or rails against the deceived, but rather, the deceivers...
I found out just yesterday that one of my neices, Ashley, who is 21, is pregnant. Not a good thing at all...drinks, smokes, party's, irresponsible, immature, and emotional issues from childhood trauma. I was so disappointed, and view it as one more child being brought into this world by someone who has no business being a parent right now. Anyway, I would appreciate any prayers that she wouldn't murder the child. My sister said my neice wasn't sure what she was going to do.
From what I've seen, Steve's defense of Roman Catholocism seems to be defined and dictated by the good works they do. Seems like good people, and good things, according to worldly standards, tips the balance in their favor, not matter what doctrines they choose to believe and practice, or what doctrines the church itself believes and teaches. Seems like being a good person will outweigh their ignorance and/or disobedience on the day of judgement. I think Steve also seems to believe that, though wrong, they all mean well, so that will count for something, and the mere fact that they have the faith to believe in those wrong things, will be enough to save them because they meant well. This is the logic I've gleaned from his comments over time. I can also quote him, pretty much verbatim, from years ago: "I believe Roman Catholics are saved...they just don't know how, or when it happened".
The polluting of God's Word, along with the comprimise we see today just goes to show how many has lost all respect for God Almighty, and the fear/reverence is just gone. Life is being lived according to man as he contorts scripture to fit his needs, and God's Word itself is being re-written to suit man's fancy, ignorance, and selfish needs.
Up this way, the EPA calls it the whiffer sniffer, as it takes out our shorelines sniffing for buried vegemite. They've buried landmines and habinero peppers hoping to either blow it apart or cause enough pain that'll make him think twice about doing it again. We'll see...
