    Abortion
    Also Psalm 15 and in particular v. 5b "Lord, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on Your holy hill?...and does not take a bribe against the innocent."

    If one promises a better paycheck and the other stands against abortion, and you choose to satnd behind the guy promising the better paycheck, you are accepting a bribe against the innocent.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    Tell me, how many christians live by biblical principles, let alone believe the bible?

    I say, anyone who calls themselves a christian should vote conservatively; all others who vote otherwise and say they are a christian are really not!

    There are many two faced folks in this world, what else is new?

    "How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal(anyone who is anti-Christ), then follow him." - IKings 18:21

    Thanks for your Biblical references for today pressing needs. Hopefully more so called christians will take heed to the bible, not man and his utopia!

    Right-wing extremist would like to make everyone believe as you. Thankfully we have religious freedom and separation of church and state in this country so you can choose to believe or not believe.

    You simply misunderstand.
    Are you a christian? if not don't worry!
    I was talking to the so-called christians. Were you offended?

    Thankfully we have religious freedom and separation of church and state in this country so you can choose to believe or not believe.

    Thankfully we have religious freedom otherwise i could be put in jail.
    I would ask anyone to show me what separation of church and state actually means. I see that many liberals simply misunderstand and misused this phrase.

    Thank you all for your input.

    Guys, my head must be in lala land. I happen to believe that most of us here on this forum community are fine people.
    But whenever I share my view of something and there is little or no support ... I get the impression that some people here just dont care about the truth!

    Specifically I am talking about the ozone issue.

    I know it is not as big an issue as salvation. But the mere fact that so many here are deluded into believing lies ... it makes may heart break.


    The evil one is subtle. He is not right out there in your face.
    His lies begin small and move upwards slowly. Like a cancer.

    I wish people made more of an issue out of right from wrong.
    Instead of just relying upon others to make up their own minds FOR THEM!


    I guess it is just a weakness to want to view everyone here as being honest and truthful. And that they all want that for everyone else, no matter what it costs them.
    Pride, or time or money or position.

    You are an extreme idiot.

    I don't give a $hit what the bible says. 'abortion' is nothing less than killing and if you don't believe it is, you are a bigger idiot than first thought!

    So does that mean masturbation is out?

    Doesn't mean I have to agree with it.
