Mike Pence: Trump Will Resolve Birth Control Mandate, Transgender Bathroom Issues
In an interview on Dr. James Dobson's "Family Talk" radio show to be aired Wednesday, Mike Pence, the Republican Party nominee for vice president, says a Donald Trump-Pence administration would, if elected, resolve both Obamacare's birth control mandate and President Barack Obama's transgender bathroom policy.
"I'm a Christian, a conservative and a Republican â€¦ in that order," the Governor of Indiana, joined by his wife, Karen, tells James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family.
"The Trump-Pence administration will be dedicated to preserving the liberties of our people, including the freedom of religion that's enshrined in our Bill of Rights." Trump's vice presidential nominee said when asked if their administration would issue a regulation to eliminate Obamacare's contraceptive mandate, or at least provide a religious exemption for all ministries and businesses....

All or nothing types are tiring. Mere excuses for doing nothing, couched in religious misunderstanding and withdrawal from living. Only factor Trump may play is perhaps placing strict constructionists on the SCourt, should the Senate ok. Which could end up sending the issue back to the States. Do you approve of original intent judges on the Court, Jim?

John MacArthur said or, wrote: ...We hear about the new right, the moral majority, a great call from many parts of our country that says to our nation, "We must return to our roots, to the standard of behavior, ethics, morality, religion upon which our nation was founded." This cry has come rather repeatedly in our particular time in history, but it really isn't anything new, even for America....
I want to say at the very beginning that I agree with morality, so that I won't be misunderstood. I definitely agree with ethics and morality and standards, and I believe that we should adhere to those which are the truths revealed in the Word of God. But morality, by itself, is in many ways more dangerous than immorality. That may shock you, but it shouldn't, because that's exactly what we see around the life of Christ, and that is basically what our Lord is teaching us ... the danger of morality, ethics, religion, reformation, cleaning up your life, changing from evil habits to "good habits."

Help me out wrote: Totally on board with over turning it but... Why is it that so-called Christians are not being sincere about efforts of candidates of the choice in ending abortion? Is it not known that reversing Roe V. Wade would not be enough to stop the slaughter or innocents. If it were, it would once again be left up to the states, which would once again pass laws allowing for it in cases of rape or incest. I've tried to find in the Bible where God provides and allows for those exceptions, but can't. Is it found anywhere in the bible?
It's not found in the Bible. Neither is doing nothing right, because everything right wouldn't get done in the doing. Sending the issue back to the States would surely save many babies from being murdered. The choice is, start somewhere, or don't start anywhere.
I will help you out. First of all no matter how sincere Mr. Pence may be, he is the Vice presidential pick which means his opinion is worth next to nothing. It should be pointed out,
Matthew Loftus wrote: in the words of Leon Wolf, â€śIf you believe that Trump has actual pro-life principles or that he will honor any sort of pledge to only appoint pro-life justices, then you have to be one of the most monumental suckers who has ever lived. â€ť Trumpâ€™s promises to the pro-life movement are as worthless as a Trump University degree or one of his previous marriage contracts. There is simply no pro-life case for Trump.

If it isn't money out of the Trump Industries pocket, he just might do something about abortion. However, with Trump, seeing is believing.

Too bad you comment was at the top of the list, I would also add.

John MacArthur wrote: Evangelical activists, in essence, are simply preaching a politically conservative version of the old social gospel, emphasizing social and cultural concerns above spiritual ones. In that framework the government becomes more and more the earthly ally (if he can persuade it to support his special agenda) or enemy (if it stays opposed or unresponsive to his agenda) of the Christian. But the ideal human government can ultimately do nothing to advance Godâ€™s kingdom, and the worst, most despotic worldly government in the end cannot halt the power of the Holy Spirit or the spread of Godâ€™s Word.

Piety PI'ETY, noun [Latin pietas, from pius, or its root, probably a contracted word.] 1. piety in principle, is a compound of veneration or reverence of the Supreme Being and love of his character, or veneration accompanied with love; and piety in practice, is the exercise of these affections in obedience to his will and devotion to his service. Piety is the only proper and adequate relief of decaying man. 2. Reverence of parents or friends, accompanied with affection and devotion to their honor and happiness.- Webster's 1828 edition
Penned, once again you are stating your opinion as fact and are overrun by your emotions.
Now, I follow Christ and His word, which clearly states the shedding of innocent blood as sin. If you were to go back through my comments, you would have known that. I advise you to stop making false accusations against any and all who disagree with you.
BTW, if you think Trump will end abortion, you are in for a rude awakening. Pay attention to his words, he has already stated that homosexual marriage is the law of the land because the supreme court says so. With that logic, then abortion is the law of the land because the supreme court says so. Your dominionist views are scary.

pietists would insist on keeping abortion legal because it is the law of the land. They would insist that we just allow it to happen and share the gospel with people and poof, magically, abortion would disappear. I can only then assume that you would not support efforts in overturning Roe v Wade. many trying to end abortion speak against pietism as a stronghold on the church. I agree with them. I'm not here to defend myself nor to play a victim.
ending abortion is doing what is good before Holy God.
would you care to share how allowing the murder of the unborn is alright because "the country is under judgment" therefore the responsibility does not rest
Sodomy is not the only gauge by which one may use in regards to that which is abominable-
Proverbs Chapter 6
16 These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
1 Corinthians Chapter 6
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
All are certainly affected by these,including Christians. I believe that we should pray for our leaders but we don't have to align ourselves with them just because they promise something any more than we give credence to their wicked associates and supporters.
Concerning the sermon recommendation of Jason Cooley, disregard. It turns out to be nothing more but a personal rant against the doctrines of grace and no expounding of scripture. My apologies for recommending it before I finished listening.
US - I respect your right to disagree. I do agree that God deals with individuals. I see many individuals in America being turned over, the numbers seem to be increasing. Perhaps we are in agreement, somewhat, and I just haven't spoken clearly.
ladybug wrote: 2 Timothy 3:13 is a generalization of increased evil. How do we know if God has turned men over as Romans 1 states? Read the whole chapter and see if that's what 'men' around you look like. What ignites God turning men over? Vs. 18, they 'hold the truth' or 'keep back' 'restrain'.
