An Ambassador of Perversion wanting to rope the kids in. Looking for recruits. So hardened by sin. God breaks hearts of stone. May He be pleased to show His mercy. Parents teach about God's love and mercy for Adam in giving him a wife. How beautiful marriage is. A man and a woman together for life is a unspeakable joy and privilege.
Rom 1:18 to the end of the chapter explains this and so does Proverbs. Reject God you worship animals. Reject God and you become mentally unhinged. We are living amongst the insane and there are plenty of Godless fools with money, keyboard, microphone, monitor to give these loons a voice publicly. The pure gospel of Christ cured the demoniac and he was found clothed and in his right mind. Let us not forget that these folks are under heavy demonic influence and need to be set free by Jesus Christ. What a glorious thing to have your mind and heart free! Pray for these captive souls.
Bill wasn't needed. We have a Constitution. These silly bills come up and get voted against paving the way for it to be law through the back door. It's a schtick. Now someone is going to present a Sharia law bill next. Something supposedly only for Muslims. Will then be the norm. When upu reject God there is a vacuum to be filled. Hatred for biblical Christianity has to be replaced with something heavy fisted.
I want to say that some people get saved with a lot of debt and can't homeschool or do private school. Some mom's end up being saved single or a husband dumps them making it impossible to homeschool or do private school. I think fellow believers should step in and help financially. Public school is dangerous. It has changed since I attended. Can't put your kids in. If u can help out a believer in this area do it. It may cost you a vacation or something else. If you do it to the least of these then you did it to Christ.

Nothing sinners do can prevent salvation by God alone in Christ alone at any age. Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: ..... God's power to save is not the issue. Placing your kids in the hands of unbelievers for education and character building is the issue. Also, we are voluntarily doing this.
Taking your children out pf public school is not the Benedict answer and invalid argument. Homeschooling is not a monastery and not a Catholic idea. Children are minors and aren't emotionally equipped to deal with the filth and persecution of the adult staff. Kids in Christian homes aren't necessarily saved so they can't be light. Your unsaved kids will be encouraged to rebel against your authority and biblical teaching. Kids naturally fear adults especially kids in a Christian home who are taught to obey authority. They will struggle (especially young children) with standing against them. Kids may not know how to answer against the nonsense biblically. If you are not convinced may I suggest doing a study on the history of public school in the US. Who were the founding fathers? Who were their influences? What was the goal of public school? How does the current system reflect its founding? What is the goal of public education. Check the NEA website and see what their goals are. Check Dept of Education website for info. In light of the current pro-homosexual and agenda and pro-transvestite that should be enough reason to not put your kids in. As far as countries outside the US, better pray fervently for your governments and wisdom on how to proceed with your
Mr. Trump is pro-life which is why he appointed this man. Prolifers aren't anti-abortion, but want it regulated. The hope is less abortion will happen not the irradication of it. He like the Republicans before him SAY they are against abortion , but their actions show their true colors. Mr. Trump is cool with gay "marriage" too. Mrs. Clinton is for abortion and homosex "marriage". At least she was honest and made no bones about it. She lies about everything else, but those two positions. Mr. Trump seems to be about unifying all Americans. Homosexuals, abortionists, Muslims, Christians, Conservatives, etc. as one big happy where no group will have preeminence. No gonna happen. Rome tried that and failed. History does repeat itself. There was a godly man running as a third party candidate yet professing Christians voted for Mr. Trump. 'Gospel" Coalition did not pay him any attention. Neither did Pastor Jeffress or Jerry Falwell Jr. Good Presbyterian believer. What kind of impact would we have had if we in the millions voted for him? It would have shown that our vote is consistent with what we say we hold dear.

Tell that the parent whose children and grandchildren are hundreds of miles away and they communicate with their loved ones and get to see their milestones that they aren't able to be there for. Tell that to the churches who use it as a ministry tool to the lost and their congregation. Tell that to those who use it for go fund me accounts to pay for their medical bills for cancer. Tell that to those who, like Paul Washer, have used it communicate urgent prayer request. It is just a website run by a bunch of liberals. It is a communication tool and it can be used for good or evil purposes. There is no privacy there and they can censor anyone they wish, it is their website and they don't charge its users. Evil, the Bible reminds us, comes from within the heart of man.
I have said what you said in a previous post that they own the site and can regulate it. We agree on that. When I say its evil I don't mean it as if it in and of itself is evil like an object has the capacity for evil. It's an expression that we use in the english language. FB censors scripture cause it is against it which is evil cause they
Resist this cultural Marxist evolution. Don't believe everybody is down with this. That is the shtick. Wear you down through media and public school so that you give up and embrace. They especially want your kids and impressionable young people. These Regressives have been like a blitzkrieg ever since Mr. Obama said he was for homosexual marriage. Do not grow weary of this onslaught. Do not be worn down. Get kids out of public school. Stop patronizing organized sports that promote this filth, stop patronizing Hollywood, and turn off that TV. Be hard as flint. Olympics will prolly have men in drag competing against women stupid enough to participate. Don't watch, attend, or buy promotional stuff. Olympics has women athletes who have on so little clothing that they might as well be naked. Christians have got to start acting like Christians and put away this filth FAR from them. It is going to cost us something, but being a Christian has always been costly.
Homeschool Mom get off Facebook. Quit whining and move along. FB is evil. There is nothing godly about it. Stop acting like you need them and that they have to post whatever you want. Pay the money to maintain your own blog if you don't have one. Spend your energy rearing those kids in the fear and admonition of the Lord and stop complaining about being persecuted. Jesus in the sermon on the mount said to rejoice and be exceedingly glad when we are persecutes in Matthew 5. James says to count it all joy. You are being disobedient to scripture and publicly shaming Christ. You need to stop.
Living in a society of delusional lunatics is going to come to a breaking point. People who are this deranged will at some point become combative. Hollywood and the media are egging this on. Women are at risk and going to suffer immensely. What these crazy people are saying is that there is no such thing as a man or a woman. Woman are going to be brutalized and no one will help her.
All Mr. Alito has to do is say that homosexual marriage was a majority opinion from the court and that it is not law. That the Legislative branch makes law and that the COTUS is silent on the subject of marriage and therefore is in the jurisdiction of the states. He should also publicly say that the states only regulated marriage and not defined it. It was always one man and one woman in line with the bible. Until Mr. Alito does that his comments are irrelevant and of no consequence.
Another reason to homeschool or use a good Christian School. Maybe a Charter School. My $.02 is live in a smaller home, drive that car longer, skip fancy vacations and pay tuition. Keep your financial obligations as painfully mimimun as possible and protect your kids. If you can help out a family at church with tuition or homeschool materials do it. This is serious. These fools are more concerned about the color of the teacher's skin than his aptitude to effectively communicate educational materials to students. Government is not designed for educating children, but keeping peace and order. COTUS does not deal with the subject and Rom 13 is plain about the purpose and function of government.
Protestants are protesting anymore as a whole. If you are Seventh Day, Catholic, Mormon, etc then you are a Christian. In my area a lot of non-Catholics are doing Lent. What hogwash! In my opinion the Reformation is over. Only a remnant temains. When "Protestants" think Catholics are Christians and therefore Brethern the Reformation is over. All that blood spilt to break free from Rome is being trampled upon.

I thought your response was beautiful and true. Shows us ladies how we serve God and how crucial our service to Him is in relation to husbands. I think there is a lot of confusion about women because of feminism and lack of masculinity. Staying in scripture is the key.
