Pat was a sincere man, the poster child for the NeoCons, but when he got to Afghanistan he realized it was all a sham. Pat was ready to come back to the U.S. and tell the world this, and would have become an antiwar icon. This our beloved Illuminati Skull and Bones government could not abide, and so he was murdered.
The people who shot him through the head several times, also all over his body, as he was waving a white flag, were let free with little or no punishment, and probably huge under the table payoffs.
The military lawyers congratulated themselves on pulling off a great cover-up, that they were able to cover up for this dastardly deed so nicely.
The controlled media is trying to keep this story under wraps, not playing it up at all, but the New Media is going to make this story go ballistic.
Abigail, I'm not sure all babies go to Heaven. What if some of these babies are going to turn out to hate God? Is God obligated to spend eternity with such? None of them has had their faith tried and tested. All their lives were cut short by murder.
This is what the eugenicists say, that many of these babies would be "better off" not born, and that we are murdering them because we care about them so much.
I don't think we know all the answers of what God is going to do with all the souls of men. We only know what God says about murder, and as Christians we can never take the position that murder can be a good thing under any circumstance whatever.
Each of those babies has a human soul, and every one of them wanted to live, and they all died a brutal and violent death in a place that should have been safe and warm.
Lastly, the Bible says God hates the shedding of innocent blood, and so we should also.
We can't second-guess God, just do what he says to do in the Bible.
Abigail, your postings are very wise. I disagree with very little you say. I do disagree when you imply that the abortion may be a blessing in disguise because that is in violation of the Scriptural command to love our neighbor as ourself.
Do we love our life? Yes. Would we prefer never to have been born? No.
The worst life of all is better than no life at all and every life is precious. And of course, a single soul is worth more than the whole earth as God said, What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul.
Pro Gun Christian, I like your last post, think it has a lot of good points.
Abigail, yes we are passing through, but we have commands from Jesus to love our neighbor as ourself.
We are not to be indifferent to what goes on in the world, we are to be in the world but not of it. I take "of it" to mean not captivated by it. But we still must care for our neighbor, our family and even ourselves. God doesn't want us to be hungry, without shelter, to be at the mercy of wicked men. God said he sets before us life and death and to choose life, and he promises earthly blessings of health and abundance to those who follow and trust him. My understanding is that where Christians go they can expect God's blessing and protection.
Jesus taught about the Good Samaritan and said that every man is "our neighbor" -- meaning every person who is hurting or in need is our neighbor.
I think when we write the babies off because they would be better off dead, it means we've lost faith in God and lost our hope. I don't have a martyr spirit at all, but if push comes to shove I will die before I will deny God or take the mark, with God's help.
The hall of faith in Hebrews talks about all this stuff.
Abigail, When Jesus resisted the moneychangers in the temple he did it with great violence.
He flipped over the tables, threw them around, threw the money all over the place. He made a scourge, a whip with many short pieces of leather thongs, the kind that you have to get up close to people to strike them with. He used this to drive everyone out of the temple.
Jesus also told his disciples that one sword "was enough."
Jesus taught, do unto others as we would have them do to us, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. It's one thing to turn the cheek to your own personal enemy and to overcome evil with good. It's another thing to stand by and allow evil men to murder and pillage women and children and do nothing.
America's greatest shame is that we stood by and let helpless babies be torn limb for limb, 40 some million of them, and went on watching football and all the rest of what we do here in America. It was a blood sacrifice to Satan, who now, greatly empowered, is ready to devour the rest of us.
It's not a matter of vengeance. It's a matter of resisting evil and loving our neighbor.
Jim, Ankerberg is pure Illuminati. And sure, Iraq at one time had poison gas and they did use it. And? Remember they were defeatead in Gulf War I? Remember we had inspectors in there, and they found nothing? And we still have found nothing?
It was a ruse to attack Iraq, a lie. Everybody knows that.
So was it a lie about Osama Bin Laden, business partner with the Bush Crime Syndicate. The ships and planes were poised to attack Afghanistan even before 9/11, and the plans were laid out 10 years before for a complete takeover of the Middle East by PNAC (ie NeoCONs).
You are a very young man, I know, very impressionable. You are being led by the nose by some clever propagandists, and you owe it to yourself and those who may be listening to your advice to look deeper.
Our government was behind 9/11. Building 7 (the third tower that came down but no plane had hit it) did not come down at the speed of gravity into its own footprint because of "debris." The Twin Towers likewise did not come down at the speed of gravity into their footprints because a couple puny planes ran into them. They were built to withstand many planes running into them, because it's not an unlikely thing such could happen accidentally, and has indeed happened in the past to other tall buildings.
