Also as a witness to the recent birth my wife and I's 4th child, the whole process is miraculous. The ultrasounds never ceases to astound me...what also astounds me is that with all the advances in the OB areana that continue to affirm living life in the womb...people still don't recognize it as such.
Mr. Jim, Morality is bound in the very soul of man, no one is without it. It is apart of being created in the image of God. However, each person s morality is manifest by the compass they follow and absolutes they have built their life upon...as a Christan, it is only and should be only upon Word of God. So, the question to you is, where are you getting your authority that God says it is ok to abort a baby in His Word?
The areas where these protest are happening have weakened the ability of the local militia to protect in gun restrictions and they have bound the hands of the police to enforce so it falls upon the next line of defense the federal intervention.
It was recently recalled that when the Berkely "protests" happened President Reagen sent in tanks...maybe they would prefer those to human bodies that are being sent currently...
Every society and nation has chapters in its history that it should not be proud of... however the answer is to learn from that history not act like it did not happen...if you remove history you will inevitably repeat history.
I mention the Garden because that is where it all started...we all come from the same line of God's crowning creation created in His image and since He is no respecter of persons...it would mar His character to say that He says some should be in bondage and others not...it would mar His character to say love others as yourself unless you are of a certain crede or color. And you are right I was born into slavery to sin but now have freedom and by choice and love serve a new master as a Master. And your right again being born into a certain area gives no one any better insight than the other.
If you are going law of First Mention, Ken of South, God didn't establish slavery in the sinless garden. It is a product of sin and it's wages. God did not institute slavery but He did establish parameters because He knew men in wickedness would do so...like choosing an earthly king rather than God as King. As Israel so did.
There are many forms of slavery and it stems from not treating the other in the image of God...the child labor of Northern heritage to the plantations of Southern Heritage.
I do not know the Graham's personally nor do I follow them at all but the truth was spoken by him. The SC once again are attempting make a law and instead of interpret and the SC once again did went against the Word of God by their ruling, fisrt the sanctity and value of life via abortion now the sanctity and value of God's created gender...
Whether or not, you agree that America was founded as a Christian nation. It is undisputable that it was founded in principles that were governed and guided by the Bible and a sense of morality that has now other foundation other than a Biblical worldview. Our founding fathers stated and it has been affirmed of recent actions by these judges, governor's and every politician that if our Constitution was removed from the Bible and a sense of Biblical morality it would allow for the worst form of government-a tryanny- and a hedonistic society for it's citizens.
Mr. Jim the others already do it and are allowed to. I use to work in the public education system and these other groups and views were allowed to present in 7th and 8th grade class but never did I see my pastor or any like invited to present...the reason they want the Bible out is because it debunks and destroys every worldview they teach and allow and promote... period.
