As with many issues, people voice their support so long as it doesn't land in their backyard. The homeless shelter on their street, for example.
Another example is being against abortion but not adopting children, especially those from unwanted pregnancies.
I only know of one person to do it and he's one of the few people I can honestly say puts their money where their mouth is.
So, those of you against abortion, have you adopted? If not, why not?
The USA is driven by corporate profit and governed by politicians who are in the pockets of corporate lobbyists and churches are busy making people believe that this is all good and godly and right and as things ought to be. When things go wrong how many pulpits are filled by men and women preaching
(Romans 13:1-5)  Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.  Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgement.  For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will...
Okay, so the bible says, "Jesus will know all and all will come to know Jesus." So what happens to those born in a Buddhist country? Let me take that one step further. A group of people are born in a Buddhist country, never learned about Jesus Christ in school, and noone ever taught them about Jesus, so they never had the opportunity to switch religions until they die. They are isolated tribes in Africa and other parts of the world that live how people live back in the stone age. Odds are, noone will ever be able to reach them and teach them about Jesus, and even if they could, they would have to speak their language to teach them. So these people are unfarily condemned to Hell?
So abortion should be allowed in the case of medical reasons or rape. Lets be real most abortion are not about those reason. Rape victim take the morning after pill. Most rapist do not want to get caught so these days they use condoms. I am not saying pregnancy because of rape does not happen cause it does. But it is not the norm. So people have abortions for other reasons, they can not afford a kid, or there teenagers and not ready to raise a kid. So lets solve the major problem. Sex Education, I have hear Christians over the years go on and on about abstinence. I do not care what you preach or get your kids to promise...the majority not all some will listen to you but the majority will have sex. My mom made sure each of her kids new...
The culture of death brooks no dissent. In Canada, doctors have been ordered to bend the knee.
Here’s the story: The Canadian Charter (Constitution) guarantees “freedom of conscience and religion”— a stronger and more explicit protection of religious liberty than our First Amendment. After the Supreme Court created a right to euthanasia, Ontario passed a law requiring doctors to kill legally eligible patients who want to die or provide an “effective referral” if they have moral objections — i.e., procure a doctor known by the dissenter to be willing to euthanize patients.
Catholic and other religious doctors sued to enforce their Charter liberties. Referring equals complicity, the doctors argued, and thus the law forces them to...
I am with a woman since December 2012 now and we're not married because when I met her, she was not divorced yet.
She came out from an abuse marriage. That's the reason she's not with her husband anymore.
But my intention is to marry her when the divorce is finalized.
Now, I started to go to church recently, and wonder if I should stop going to church until I finally marry her or if it is okay for me to go still?
What do you think?
Hey everyone. I am getting close to having enough blessings to purchase a new username. I thought it would be fun to create a thread for everyone to put in suggestions for what my new name is going to be. I figured I would do this every time I have enough points. Let me know what you come up with. I will leave this thread up for 2 weeks before I decide a winner.
Of course this has been a hot topic since the latest laws coming out of Georgia and Alabama. However, may people have argued that it is wrong to "force a rape victim to carry a baby to term" and that it is up to the victim to decide if the baby should die. All the pictures below are children of rape victims. Well, if the mother can determine the value of the life of her child and she decides that these children are worthless and don't deserve to live, are we supposed to do the same? Why or why not? Would you look these children in the eye and tell them they are worthless because their mother believes so? If not, why would their value be any different before they were born?

Is Kirsten Gillibrand's theology correct?
Flanked by abortion rights advocated at the Georgia state house Thursday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said that laws banning or restricting abortion are "against Christian faith."
"If you are a person of the Christian faith, one of the tenants of our faith is free will. One of the tenants of our democracy is that we have a separation of church and state, and under no circumstances are we supposed to be imposing our faith on other people. And I think this is an example of that effort," she said at a press conference.
