Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders endorsed abortion to curb population growth during a town hall Wednesday, saying itâs a solution that would work âespecially in poor countriesâ around the world.
The above is from the article.
What Bernie really believes in is eugenics. I can pretty much assure folks that it is rare for anyone who is deemed successful in our society to get an abortion.
The argument for abortion is so lame. But, one of Hitlerâs propagandists correctly understood how easy it is to brainwash mankind.
The below is an internet article.
âRepeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truthâ, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels. Among psychologists something like this known as the "illusion of truth" effect.

Just like they are with the casinos, each state is slowly moving towards recreational use marijuana for purely revenue reasons. The war on drugs always included MJ and hash, etc. In fact, how many are sitting in prisons right now for carrying/using/dealing, these illegal, mind-altering drugs? So, individual states begin to see how much cash they can bankroll if they were to take over the action, legalize the drug, and become the exclusive suppliers/dealers. They see money signs, reverse the laws that held them as class-1 drugs, legalizing the drugs for recreational use, and sold only by dispensaries, that the state controls, places a heavy product tax on for their slice of the action, and by a stroke of the pen, they become instant drug dealers, with no competition. The very same dealers that they've been imprisoning for decades. Interesting.
I am so ignorant when it comes to drugs, including marijuana. But, I do understand your point and I couldn't agree more. FOLLOW THE MONEY.
Youth in Asia wrote: I doubt anyone going to read what I say anymore, Christians try to make so many excuses to stop loving their brothers and sisters. But if this were a valid excuse, every one of us could avoid the call to love, and we do avoid it as pointed out by so many people here on unwillingness to forgive Benny Hynn.Â
Benny Hinn is not my enemy, he is God's enemy. I don't even know him and have never met him. He hasn't stolen from me or any of my loved ones.
He has preached a false gospel to 10s of thousands and has stolen money from the rich and the poor.
Now if you are curious, why don't you google what it means to be an enemy of God and His Son. (notice the Psalms and David)
If you think that Benny Hinn is my brother in the Lord, then you are clueless. If you want further thoughts on this, then please email me.
If you suspected that a Christian site would reject your thoughts, then that means there is a good chance that you are simply wrong.
Unless you respond to this, I will in fact ignore you.
Well it appears this fellow is simply doing what his Islamic faith tells him to do. His reasoning is certainly not Christian. He was raised a Muslim and as far as I can tell still considers himself to be a Muslim.
Benny Hinn has presented a false gospel for many years and has confused and misled 100s of thousands of people. He has become extremely wealthy by defrauding the unsaved for years. I have absolutely nothing to show me Hinn is saved; therefore his repentance means absolutely nothing even if he was sincere.
Numerous studies have shown that employers and society at large discriminate against tattooed people. Yet the tattoo, once âlargely reserved for criminals, sailors and circus freaksâ, has undergone a rise in popularity that âconstitutes one of the most significant cultural trends in the Westâ,
I never saw a tattoo as a child or even as a young adult. Now I see them everywhere! I have never seen a tattoo that I would even remotely consider to be attractive in any sense. I think men started doing it because they thought it would make them appear to be more masculine, but to this day I have no idea why a woman would do it. I remember some feminist saying something like this; if you want to be liberated become more like a man. Could that be the reason?
The below does apply:
Leviticus 19:28 - Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I [am] the LORD.

I am so happy that my wife and I appear to be safe; praise the Lord. Now if the Lord takes this storm out into the Atlantic and it self destructs without causing any more damage, my prayers would be fully and completely answered.

Thanks sister. It appears my area is totally safe, but I'm sure many of our brothers and sisters are not.
Thanks to both of you for your comments and agreement. I think the below applies. The Lord knows and is in control.
Matthew 13:30 âLet both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.â
This comment will sound divisive, but it is not my intent.
The problem I see with this is these people protesting will be thought of as being part of the body of Christ. Anyone who names the name of Christ is thought of by the world as being a genuine part of His body. Of course we know that isnât true. So, when some priest molests someone, the world thinks that a Christian did the molestation. When protesters use the Lordâs name, then the same thing happens. And of course we could go on and on.
These things result in the dummying down of the gospel and our relationship to our Lord and Savior is judged by the world by things of this nature.
"We will always respect the freedom of religion of every veteran of every faith,"
A politician will always use the term ârespectâ instead of something like âtolerateâ. Respect is a form of adoration. Our country was founded as a pluralistic nation and this is simply what that means.
Here is what pluralism really means. If someone says that faith in Christ is essential for their individual salvation but not necessarily for someone elseâs then they have logically said it wasnât essential for them, but was simply a matter of personal choice. The world has told us to think this way in all spiritual matters. So it is not uncommon for someone to apply a moral standard to their own lives, but not to the lives of others. That is moral hypocrisy of the highest order and simply deludes the lost into reducing Godâs moral standards and requirements to personal choices, and if a personal choice then they canât be binding on anyone. This personal choice fallacy is one of the characteristics that separate the true church of Christ from all others. Pluralism is simply spiritual polygamy. There are lots of worthy husbands and Christ just happens to be the one I chose. But, Iâll sleep with whomever I want!
Citizen wrote: âRatzocat from United States writes: This is simple. If you "lose" your faith, it was never real in the first placeâ Wrong brother, donât confuse WEAK faith for no faith and shouldnât we have compassion for the weak?
Good advice! Instead of writing something negative to you I will try and have compassion for you!
Citizen wrote: âFrank writes: Most conservatives are white. Most liberals are black. Neither of the above makes them racist. That is really silly logic. Only those with itching ears would believe such nonsense. IOW, those that are themselves racist.â Iâve meet way more white liberals than any other, though race doesnât limit you to an ideology.
Thanks for your comment! I wasn't really referring to people I have met. I was referring to voting statistics. I think something like 95% of blacks voted for Obama (liberal) and 60% of whites voted for the republican candidate(conservative).
All I was saying is someone can't say "all" those that voted for Obama are racist and all those that voted republican were racist.
Well, if my wife carries out my wishes there will be no viewing and my body will be cremated. But, if she doesnât do what I have asked, then I wonât be even remotely mad or upset. I will be in heaven with my Lord and Savior and nothing will ever bother me again.
Well brother, the below is "one" reason why you and I refer to ourselves as strangers and aliens in this lost and fallen world.
Many politicians and judges take an oath unto God to obey the constitution of the U.S., not Godâs word. Most of us would have to agree that there will be conflicts between the 2. If someone takes an oath unto the Lord, then they are basically saying the constitution must come first. Therefore, they are taking an oath unto the Lord to disobey the Lord??
That is why I have always said that it is impossible for any executive level politician to be a âpracticingâ Christian and hold public office.
Hope you are having a good day; stranger and alien!
I didn't read the article, so this is probably off topic.
What if pastor A taught a truth, pastor B disagreed with him and taught the same passage differently and pastor C taught his concept of the same truth. As we all know this is very common in todayâs world, so which pastor was correct and how does the body of Christ determine who was correct?
If we are called to account for our service, will any of us tell Christ; but my pastor said this?
We are all called individually to study to show ourselves approved.
Among other things a pastor is called to be able to teach doctrines, not to have more knowledge. A pastor will give an account of what âheâ did and said, but so will all of us.
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Matthew 6:14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
Matthew 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
