It was my pleasure. This was weird. My post showed up 37 minutes after I tried to post it. I know you are thinking it was OMI, but it wasn't. Since this issue was sort of mentioned, I will comment on it below. I know that you feel the same way.
Years ago I alluded to the things I have done in communist countries. I remember someone accusing me of trying to puff myself up. That was not the case but in order for my post to make sense, I had to allude to where the issue came up. IOW, if it pertained to one of my trips, then the trip had to be noted.
Let me just say this; anything I have done for the Lord was done by the Lord. Nothing I have ever done was because I had any special calling or bravery. Our heavenly Father never shares His glory with anyone.
Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

I am absolutely sure that the area of a circle is pi times the radius squared. I was convinced of those observable, repeatable facts before I came to Christ. What I came to learn is that the Lord works so regularly in His sustainment of His creation that we have concepts erroneously called "natural laws." Frank was dead on, Jim. Crowd- or mob-sourced truth can change like the wind. Only the truth from God never changes. Someday, those so called natural laws may not be the same here on Earth. But the Lord will be the same, yesterday, today, and tomorrow...from everlasting to everlasting. And His truth will never fade away. Why are Mike's concerns only to be limited to NYC? Why not museums in Lincoln, NE?
Thanks brother! Yes, all I was trying to say is there is such a thing as absolute truth; truths that never change. Someone who thinks truth is progressive will never arrive at the absolute truth.
Malachi 3:6"ââFor I âAMâ THE LORD, I CHANGE NOT; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed."
Jim Lincoln wrote: The progressives are coming out of the woodwork.
Those who believe that truth is progressive will by their own definition never arrive at absolute truth since by their own definition their truth is subject to change; therefore it canât be absolutely true. So simply ask them if they are absolutely sure there is no such thing as absolute truth. They canât say yes to this question and they canât say no. If they say yes, then they are contradicting their thoughts because they are saying they are in fact âabsolutely sureâ of their statement. If they say no, then they are directly denying the assertion they just made. That means their position must in fact be wrong. They base this thought in the concept that truth lies within each of us individually and therefore what might be true and binding to one person isnât necessarily true and binding on someone else.
The Quiet Christian wrote: I certainly agree, Frank, and your point is well made. Yes, both are co-conspirators and murderers. Such radical efforts and arguments to maintain the status quo. Chief Justice Roberts is being lampooned for his rationale. This is the strangest and most bizzare happening, and reveals the efforts of Satan to tangle up justice.
Well brother, I am glad we agree on this subject and I didn't butcher or misrepresent your thoughts.
I read a Yahoo article that said in China if a Muslim woman had more than 3 children she would be sent to prison. And they were also using forced sterilization on Muslims. (may not have been a Yahoo article ???)
The Quiet Christian wrote: Now, Frank, you have often shared that article about the life of the mother never really being a factor in an abortion decision. That was the first thing I thought of when the radio brought the news today. If women's health and safety was so important, why not include a backup plan when something goes wrong? Ludicrous. Absurd. Unbelieveable. And utterly uncaring about human beings.
I prefer to say that the life of the mother was the primary concern in my example. I will post here again:
"When the life of the mother is truly threatened by her pregnancy, if both lives cannot simultaneously be saved, then saving the motherâs life must be the primary aim. If through our careful treatment of the motherâs illness the pre-born patient inadvertently dies or is injured, this is tragic and, if unintentional, is not unethical and is consistent with the pro-life
Notice the mother was the primary concern even if the baby had to die to save her. The issue was to never target the baby.
Do you mean a back-up plan for the woman when the abortion is botched? If not, then I fully agree brother.
In Godâs economy the woman and doctor would be murderers. Do you agree?
Well I think if more women died from getting an abortion or got really sick, then that would slow down future abortions. Abortions were much less frequent when they had what was referred to as âback alleyâ abortions or when women did them at home.
The innocent lives in the womb are truly innocent. The doctors and women are not.
The fellow in question is a charismatic/Pentecostal. Only the Lord truly know those that belong to Him, but my only prayer is that the Lords saves this fellow. I don't want him to be heard by the lost. We can simply go by what we see and hear.
Charismatic/Pentecostals believe we can lose our salvation; women preachers and teachers are good; if they have enough faith they can order God around; and if someone hasn't been baptized in the Holy Spirit evidenced by speaking in tongues, then they cannot be leaders. In other words, they are second class Christians.
John UK wrote: I agree Frank. And I had an experience today out on my prayer walk, where I was talking to the Lord about sin and where it comes from, and he reminded me of this text: Matthew 15:19-20 KJV (19)Â For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: (20)Â These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. This led on to talking about Jeremiah 17:9 and the human heart, what it is, and what it is not, and mine own heart in particular. It was most profitable, I believe.
Thanks brother! Yes, we were born with an Adamic nature and once we got old enough we were simply sinners. But, just think; all our sins, past, present and future have been paid for by our Lord and Savior. He saved us from before the foundation of the world. Praise His holy name.
I am praying for those beautiful Pakistini children and their teachers every night. I pray the Lord keeps them safe and provides for all their needs.
Now, this isnât an argument that says some sins are not sins. But, it is an argument to say that some sins are worse than others. IOW, a murderer is worse than a thief.
Leviticus 20:13 - If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them.
Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
The U.S. defines murder as the âillegalâ taking of a life. God defines murder as the intentional taking of a human life. The word legal is not pertinent to the Christian moral discussion of abortion.
But, like the article says, we have the right to free speech and this fellow should not be threatened or penalized for saying what the word of God says.
Psalms 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. 14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully [and] wonderfully made: marvellous [are] thy works; and [that] my soul knoweth right well. 15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, [and] curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them.
Isaiah 44:2 Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, [which] will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.
NeedHim wrote: Brother Frank you are correct in what you are saying. Watch Babies Are Murder Here 2, on YouTube. You see Conservatives & Christians who are unwilling to call Abortion Murder or to Abolish it! As that would affect their bottom line $$$$. May the Lord raise up more Laborers to proclaim hope at the Murder Mills. That their is no Peace without first having peace with Christ removing ones spiritual heart of stone away amen.
Thanks brother. What I would love to hear is a politician say that abortion is murder and should be prosecuted as such.
I remember when Trump was running. He said that the women and doctors having or performing abortions should suffer some type of penalty. He got flack and quickly changed it to only the doctors.
A doctor can murder 20 babies a day, but only has one vote. But there were 20 women.
Yes, the liberal politicians simply ignore scripture. The conservatives pick and choose what to obey and what to not obey. One is on the left side of the bookshelf and the others are on the right side. But, they are both on the same moral bookshelf.
Chrisgp from England wrote: And I forgot to say, East Germany, the old DDR, where the Stasi (the secret police there), had this kind of neighbourhood informant policing down to a fine art!!
You are very correct. I was stationed in Berlin during the DDR days. And, I have visited other communist countries to include East Germany. They all spied on each other and reported violators to the authorities. They were given financial incentive. In some communist countries a church had to have their weekly sermons approved by the authorities. The real churches didn't comply.
I remember the main roads through those countries looked okay, but turn off and all you saw was poverty. People always were looking for food, etc. The communist/socialist societies were a failure. They actually had stores that only tourists or communist party members could shop in.

Yes brother, this is not our home. What a glorious time it will be to see the Lord return, destroy His enemies and receive us into eternal bliss.

Mike wrote: He should have looked into it more, Frank. Animals are not "gay." They follow their mating instinct, and sometimes select whatever is nearby. Put a female in the pen, and suddenly the so called gay sheep isn't gay anymore. I would challenge Mohler to show a case of same sex animals mating for life. Btw, anyone else experienced a young dog attempting to mate with a human leg? Sorry, I know it's gross, but it doesn't make the dog a pervert of the inter species type, and demonstrates the point.
Interesting points about animal behavior. You are certainly correct. I don't remember all the details about his homosexual sheep, but I do think that was his sole issue.
When I contacted him I explained to him that meant that someone was inherently prone to homosexuality and therefore they would try and mitigate their behavior.
Mankind will do anything to justify their behavior.
