“I Had an Abortion and I’m Not Apologizing”
by Ken Ham
One billboard boldly proclaims, “I had an abortion and I’m not apologizing.” Another promotes the lie, “I had an abortion & it was just health care.” Now, true health care doesn’t involve murdering children. A third one claims, “I had an abortion and I’m not ashamed.”
One woman who participated in this campaign said, “I joined the #SayAbortion campaign because abortion is normal, abortion is health care, and I will not apologize for putting my life first.” Now that’s essentially an admission she sacrificed her child to the god of self!
Another woman wants to make the conversation about abortion “as easy as talking about a...
It's often been said that pride is at the root of all the divisions in the Church. I've also heard from people on these forums that they decide what church they go to, based on whether or not a church follows the Bible.
The natural issue here is, every church claims to follow the Bible! But people think that their interpretation is the most important, so they go to a church that agrees with them (not all Christians, but a lot).
Why do you think you have the correct interpretation? Even if you don't think the Pope's office is Biblical, does that mean it isn't? If you think that the Trinity isn't Biblical, does that mean it isn't? Neither issue here is particularly obvious, if you look through Scripture, trying to find it. But...

How Jesus Called Out False Teachers and Deadly Doctrine
''It’s a good time to be a false teacher and to espouse deadly doctrine. It seems that today’s most brazen heretic will be granted a hearing and, in all likelihood, a book deal. Novelty is appealing, orthodoxy boring. It’s the ones who sound the warning and issue the challenge that bear the risk—the risk of being labelled “haters.” There’s more patience for those who smilingly subvert the truth than for those who boldly defend it. Conviction is a sign of arrogance, while humility is expressed in uncertainty. Love, it seems, requires us to bear patiently with any amount of error. And this kind of love, we are...
In Romans chapter 1 verse 18 through chapter 3 verse 20, Paul gives a very dire picture of the sinful and unrighteous human condition that we are under the wrath of God. This after first in chapter 1 verses 1-17 showing the hope that is the Gospel. So he starts out by proclaiming the power of the Gospel (the good news) before telling his audience the very bad news and our state as sinners who do not seek God and none who are righteous before a Holy God.
Then in Romans chapter 3 verses 21 through Romans chapter 4 verse 25 he brings us back to the Good News of being justified as a gift by God's grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus.
Paul’s epistle to the Romans shows “the bad news” of all have sinned and the wrath of God...
In today's world where churches and different beliefs are popping up on every corner, not to mention the years of churches preaching a watered down Bible and God. What does the Bible say and not say concerning salvation? Seems to me that if one is going to endeavor to be a Christian, one would be concerned with God's word more so than anything else!!! 1. No where does the NT say or imply that anyone has ever been saved by praying "the sinners prayer".
2. The Bible does however say specifically that obedience IS involved in salvation.
2 Thessalonians 1:6-8
since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you,and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven...
Zech 14:4 is the only verse in the OT that mentions the Mount of Olives.
Vs 4 states in that day His feet will stand on the Mt of Olives.
Vs 1 states a day of the Lord is about to come
I suppose my question is, is Jesus suppose to literally return and set foot on the Mount of Olives in the future or did some of it occur in the 1st century and some in the future.
1 A day of the Lord is about to come when your possessions will be divided as plunder in your midst.
2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to wage war; the city will be taken, its houses plundered, and the women raped.
Then half of the city will go into exile, but the remainder of the people will not be taken away.
3 Then the Lord will go...
Such as before 1000AD. People call those the medieval times or dark ages.
1. 33AD Jesus resurrected from the dead and ascended to heaven
2. 300AD Constantine allows Christianity to thrive in the Roman Empire
3. 600AD Muhammad launches his conquest of the Islamic Empire caliphates
4. Crusades happen
5. 1000AD+ The Great Schism
If you had the choice would you like to be born around this time period or would you settle for the 20th and 21st century instead or some other century?
The 11th century and under seems like a dangerous time to me.
