And why would God allow good people to go to Hell? Do you believe God would be so petty as to punish good people simply for not believing in Jesus? It just makes no sense.
If you are serious for the answer.. none of us is good..God told the Chosen people for his message and it included sacrificing to pay for sins..Jesus was the only possible perfect sacrifice.the only way to cleanse us from our sins..he had no sin until the Cross when all of our sin was imputed to Him..this is why He cried out Father why have you forsaken me..For THe first time since eternity He was separated from the Father..HE BECAME THE EMBODIMENT OF EVERY WICKED ACT EVER TO BE COMMITTED..this was the true sacrifice . He was a man of sorrows who was prophesied to pay for our iniquities. HEcame to teach and be sacrificed.. there was no villain except evil..no people killed Him. They put Him to death..but he never fought it Because it was the plan..

And before He died He said IT IS FINISHED..the price had been paid for mans sin..the lamb was slain..

And then He rose on the third day..to show that we to will live after deatH

Each of us will be judged according to Gods justice.

YOU asked. And I realize a lot of you do not believe..but many of his followers died for professing this truth..why??? Unless it wss the truth.

There have been people causing hate in His name..even here I have seen it in words.... Jesus never professed hate nor wanted vengeance for His death..It was His will that He die and he forgave those killing Him.

And to answer another poster..I may seem illogical in my beliefs..but they ard thru faith not logic..

Many of us GO THRU LIFE WITH A HOLE IN OUR SPIRITS OUR HEARTS....IT IS A GOD SIZED HOLE..that only He can fill..

Peace

I wonder if you're talking about Pupsy/Kate. She's PL and she was friendly and got along well with everyone including PC folks. Because of that, she was accused of being a "Judas" despite the fact that she never wavered in her PL and religious beliefs.

Rose, abortion has not divided this country. There are only a few who think it should be stopped. The vast majority of people do NOT want legal abortion stopped. MOST people realize that women have ALWAYS had abortions. They also know they WILL always have abortions. You then have the option of safe abortions in clean clinics where no women die OR unskilled butchers that prey on desperate women where women die.
Which do YOU choose??
At least half of my friends and associates are anti-choice, personally. We all respect each other's opinions. There is no disconnect or divide.

There are so many ways to cut down the NEED for so many abortions..but it is not something the pols are interested in as far as I can see.
By the way if you want to know how lunatic your argument is that PP would rather perform abortions than provide contraception, you would have to make the same arguments that:

Dentists are opposed to flossing and tooth brushing since they make so much more money from dental surgery.
Cardiologists are opposed to exercise and low-fat diets because they make so much more money from heart surgery.
Brain surgeons are opposed to bike helmets, ski helmets, etc. because they make so much more money from brain surgery.

Can you try to form a coherent argument for once? You seem to think that the reason women are getting pregnant is wanton rampant hooking-up and no interest in contraception. You seem to be unable to grasp that there are areas in this country, as well as in the rest of the developed world, where religious puritanical beliefs about sex are almost non-existent. In those areas, contraceptive use is very high and unwanted pregnancies are very rare. Look in the mirror. People like you, the churches you support, and the politicians you elect are the primary reason so many young girls get pregnant. You thwart sex-education at every opportunity. You oppose free, readily available contraception for teens or low-income women. You deny science, which encourages your children to think whatever they believe is as valid as anything else. You do everything you can to make visiting a PP clinic as inconvenient as possible and then shriek that women aren't using enough contraception.
Planned Parenthood would prefer to see literally no abortions take place; they would much rather see 100% use of contraception. Women would much rather not get pregnant in the first place than have an abortion. They would like easy access to inexpensive, long-term methods such as IUDs.
But your head is so far up you know where that you cannot see that your efforts are in direct opposition to what you claim you want. Not only are you the worst enemy to young women at risk, you are your own worst enemy. American taliban.
I have not once said I am not for birth control and sex ed so please dont put that on me..

As for PP. You honestly expect me to believe they would like to be out of the abortion BUSINESS...They have access to a lot of women ..They make money. Get contributions and gov funds...They should be doing alk the things you suggest .. I say this with respect for youf beliefs..
TO BELIEVE they want to see there be NO NEED FOR ANOTHER ABORTION is most illogical

The only way? So your god is not omnipotent. He was powerless to stop sin and the only thing available to him was killing his own kid?
rosesz wrote:

So your god killed his son, which was also killing himself, which wasn't actually killing because he is still alive? The mind boggles.

So by that logic, Allah is the true god because why would so many followers of Allah die for him unless it was the truth.

The number is high however, you do have to keep in mind that the yearly rate of live birth is way higher than the yearly rate of abortion. That means more women give birth than abort.

You also have to keep in mind that PP's aren't located everywhere and even then so, you can promote all the birth control you want but you can't force anyone to use it.

Another thing to keep in mind is that not every PP performs abortion. Considering that abortion is not paid for by government funds, as it's prohibited to use government funds for abortions, all of their government funding goes to everything else. And like I said before, you cannot force people to utilize birth control.

I really don't think women *want* to have an abortion however, you can't force them to use birth control nor can you stop them from having a repeat abortion. I don't know what the solution is to all that is but it does seem that education is working slowly, but surely, as the abortion rate is decreasing. I think a lot of that has to do with comprehensive sex education, the availability of MAP and the fact that some pharmacies are offering some prescription contraceptives at an affordable price.

And they would still have access to a lot of women and make money and get government support if all they did was provide contraception and other family planning services. What evidence, not your pathetic opinion but actual evidence, that PP wants more abortions?

They do. They cannot force women to use contraception. They cannot force women to come to clinics, especially with you nutjobs threatening them on the sidewalk.

No it is completely logical, But since most of us live in the real world instead of christian candyland, people will forget to use contraception, contraception will fail, rapes will occur, genetic defects will occur, and personal situations will change. So abortion, no matter how hard we try to eliminate it, will always occur.

I hope so on the numbers if they keep coming down..and if the MAP is not an abortifacient and not harmful to young girls great if it helps.

I know first hand on a good friend..gets the pill..gains eeight or forgets..3 abortions..sad but I love her like a daughter..and tried to talk her out of the ladt.

It is a tough problem..but many women suffer after..I know this lady does..and no one wants to see them as victims to as well as their babies.

Your religious beliefs are not relevant to the discussion. You think there is only christianity? LOL ... There are 20 major world religions, hundreds more minor ones, and christianity alone has over 30,000 different sects, many of which violently disagree with each other. So the only way to have sanity is to live in a secular country under the secular rule of law, with the constitutional separation of church and state. No religious argument could ever settle this issue, only reasoned secular debate over empirical evidence.

Part of what makes conversation with you so difficult is you ignore questions and comments in my posts that are crucial to the conversation. You only answer part of a post and ignore the more important part. Why?

Are you of the belief that even the most devout Jewish Rabbi will not gain admittance to Heaven?
Read John chapter 3, where a very devout Jew was impressed with Jesus, so he came to speak with Him one night, and you will find the answer.

I'm under the impression that it doesn't matter how devout a person is in any "christian " non christian religion, without recieving the "free gift " of God, it will all be in vain.:(

I have answered your questions. I think faith kn a set of theories like a big bang takes more faith than I have to give.

I know that God created the earth. It makes mord sense and even skne secularists believe there is intelligent design.

I have read and heard some of the Answers in Genesis.. but I cannot argue all of it as I dont know it all. I do know that arguing a bunch of theories is not going to endear me to you or sway ypur non belief in God as Crreator. WHY keep saying my best and knly answer oved and over.

Not all scientists do not believe in Creation. As I said before some great names believed.
I will side with some of them.. and let you debate with people whose opinion you respect.

There is a way to make abortions rare. But you need to let go of your false beliefs and accept the data.
And the data says that in developed countries the use of abortion drops rapidly when contraception, especially long-term methods, is cheap and available and and effectively used. The data says effective use comes from open discussion at the family level and high quality sex-ed in the schools. The data says that legalization of abortion and access to abortion services does not lead to increased reliance on abortion for fertility control in the long term; in developed countries with these conditions, the predominant trend in abortion rates has been downward.

So if you really want to reduce abortions, stop picketing PP centers. Stop electing fundamentalist religious senators and congressmen. Stop opposing sex-ed. Stop opposing government funding of contraception and family planning services. Encourage your children to take personal responsibility for safe sex instead of preaching abstinence (which is proven to fail). Stop denying scientific realities because all you are doing is teaching your kids that science can't be trusted, yet the scientific method is what gives us contraception and the studies that show how to reduce unwanted pregnancy. Work to improve education and job opportunities in inner economically depressed areas so that women, when they get pregnant, will get proper nutrition and pre-natal care that will lead to fewer fetal problems that lead to abortions.

God doesn't "punish " people just becouse He can, if He wanted to rake folks into Hell based on how "good " or "bad " they were -He could've done it by now. Starting with ME

what else is He to do with a dead soul?
We have loved ones who die. No.matter how much we loved them, we don't dress them up and put them on our couch, and take them with us. We bury them.

The price of SIN is extremely high. It cost God much, and made offer to us for free.

What you call good, and what God calls good, is far different.
You seem to be a very "good" person, but would even you be willng to stand on a world stage, around all of your family and friends and have every deed and thought you have ever had opened up in front of them?

God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son, that "whosoever" shall believe in Him shall be saved.

1. God put in every person the need for Him.
Although we try and fill that spot with everything from sex, drugs, music, sports, you name it. The worst one of all "religion"

A religious person can be the hardest to be saved. They think they "do" enough.
It is not what you "do" it is who you are.

Bad people go to Heaven.
Good people go to Hell.

God must be dealing with a person, before they get saved.
This is the mystery of God.
The wind blows where it wills, and no one knows where it came from or where it goes, but they do know THAT IT TOUCHED THEM as it came by.:)
