Kind of like what you do with the words of the bible.
Don't think I've said anything contradictory to the words of the Bible. Could you be more specific?

So our free will and personal choices are pointless? You'd rather we be created as robots?
I never said that.

You'd think people who condoned killing the unborn and tolerated any kind of bad behavior as long as there was no morality involved wouldn't know a thing about biblical principles.
Yet, on another thread I used to be on, these people were the same ones who knew more about biblical principles and Jesus' teaching than any of us.
Odd, huh?
Only one man in history claimed to be the Son of God whose body was not found three days after he died.
It's a mystery the love of God and his grace towards us. Jesus came to help us get it right - love, forgive, mercy, compassion, etc.
When we want a way out of our own sinful natures, Jesus gives us that way. Unless you know it, you can't know it.
It's folly to nonbelievers. That's scriptural.
Spare us your arrogant, biblical BS.

I was more talking about calling apples oranges, which you enjoy doing when deciding what the bible says and means. Perhaps you forgot when we talked about the bible stating the moon has "her" own light. No suprise that a fundie, bible thumper has selective memory.

You seemed to be upset that God allowed girls to get pregnant because they have a free will and can make personal choices.

Education would help reduce the perceived necessity of abortion. Sadly, most that are against abortion are also against manditory education.
I most definitely agree. However, the education that's lacking is the reality of abortion. Not the liberal political correctness in the education system that is destroying it.

See, the thing is...I used to be arrogant and prideful just like you apparently are now. I used to think it was all a bunch of hooey just like you apparently do now.

Truthfully, I still have to work on humbleness at times when it comes to dealing with political correctness and its poison and those who spread it. But I apologize if it comes across as arrogance. It isn't meant to.

These are truly trying times, aren't they?

Hate to say it, but this line of reasoning is why you must be a liberal.
For some reason, liberals seem to have a very difficult time zooming out to see a much bigger picture.
You're describing what scientists know - not what they don't know.
It's more about what they don't know. For instance, they don't know why cells begin to divide on their own after conception.
Neither could they recreate that in any lab from scratch.
If I was to pin a label on myself - it would be a moderate, but why that would matter to you is a mystery.

What bigger picture? Frozen embryos are not science fiction. It's only a matter of time before artificial wombs will be the wave of the future. That would certainly effectively eliminate any reason for voluntarily aborting.

What cause would nosy parkers pursue next?

You people calling a fetus ZEF is ridiculous. Abortion isn't about a zygote, and you're wrong, a fetus does have rights. Rights you people support if you support RvW. Those rights are at viability. Obviously a fetus has been given rights then.
A woman shouldn't have a "right" to have her own flesh and blood child killed.
That is the RIGHT you people want to fight to keep, yet most of you agree she shouldn't have that right at viability. Most of you think a woman who kills her born children are monsters. None of you sees the senselessness of your contradicting views.
"Lily," you are such an obnoxious personality that I usually simply scroll past your posts without bothering to read them.
It's the same-old same-old from you anyway; you people are boneheads, you people are stupid, you people can't read for comprehension, you people are OWNED by us, the PC are all idiots, blah, blah, blah...
The only positive I'll ever give you is that you haven't fallen into the usual habit of labeling PC posters as "pro-aborts."
There's a fair portion of the PL side that believe a fertilized egg is a "person." This is usually founded on religious principles regarding the creation of an "immortal soul." They also believe that abortion at any of the z/e/f stages is about "killing a person/baby," otherwise, why all the fuss about MAP?
You're trying to twist wording here to suit your preferences; nobody's actually called a fetus a "z/e/f."
I'll assume you're an adult who drives a motor-vehicle. Do you believe that the DMV serves a useful purpose by requiring that drivers are licensed and insured? That their vehicles are registered and pass safety inspections? Do you agree that speed-limits, laws against driving while intoxicated or otherwise impaired by some ingested substance serve a worthwhile purpose?
There is nothing contradictory about reasonable restrictions regarding the development of the unborn and the limits on the abortion thereof. What you're presenting as "contradictory" is a false argument...unless you're arguing that we ought to live in a "lawless" land.
However, that's not what you're arguing--you'd like to see abortion outlawed.
I always find it interesting that conservatives, who rant, rail, scream about government intrusion always want that very intrusion when it comes to "sexuality/personal relationships," and reproductive "rights."

Wouldn't Jesus be "politically corect" today" Wasn't he crucified for being a rebel?

Yes, it is a human being. If there were a god, there would be no need for abortions. If he is all knowing and all seeing he wouldn't let the girl/woman get pregnant in the first place. He is bogus. Abortion is sad, but is there a good alternative? No.
All the religious freaks on here should get together and promise these girls/women that if they will forgo an abortion, they will adopt the baby. Case solved.
Someone I know lives very close to an abortion clinic. Everyday, it's the same creepy, religious fools who are out there shouting at these girls as they walk in. It's usually freaky men.
Why don't the men marry these girls before getting them pregnant?
Women have sex because the men rape them.
There should not be clinics. The men are responsible. They should
go to jail.

These forums aren't really meant for the spreading of the gospel. It just happens sometimes because the topic inevitably comes up.
In fact, I never knew there were so many biblical scholars on the left until before this last election.
God the Son asked God the Father, what could be done to save the human race.
God the Father and God the Son knew the system that they had set into place for after sin entered the world. There was only one way to remove sin, and that was a blood offering, but these offerings would only "cover "or "move ahead " the sin debt, so God the Son told God the Father, that He was willing to leave their Heavenly realm, and come and dwell among men "people ".
Since Sin is transferred through the man, then they chose a virgin named mary, who would carry out this Godblessed amazing deal for humans.
God told mary that His son would be called Jesus "in english ", and He allowed His Son to come yo to earth, and be born of a virgin, live a sinless life "since we cannot ",and died on the cross for our Sin.
He payed the debt we owed .
He died so that we can live.
His precious blood was applied on the mercy seat of God the Father, and when God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost looks at one that has been born again, from above they only see a person who is covered by that precious blood, provided by God the Son for the glory of God. Amen :)

For the preaching of the gospel is foolishness to those who perish :(

If there were a god, he would never allow women/girls to become pregnant when they didn't want to be. He is forcing them to have an abortion. What kind of god does that? That's right, there is no god. We are on our own to make our own mistakes. It's only human to make mistakes.

God is a myth. Made up by men to keep people in line. Doesn't always work. But, it's amazing how many believe. Truly amazing.

Anyone who is a biblical scholar has a screw loose. Why do people waste their time on something that never happened?
Christ died for our sins? Really, how does that make sense? And why does he have so many names?
"Christ" is not a name--it's a title.
It's the Greek translation of the Aramaic word for Messiah, meaning "The Anointed."
Therefore the "name," Jesus Christ, literally translates to, "Jesus the Anointed."
Also, "Jesus" itself is a translation of the Aramaic Yaisuah/Yeshua/Joshua.

The name "Jesus" is not an "English" translation--it's Greek for the Aramaic "Yaisuah, Yeshua, Joshua..."

Seriously, do you ever look beyond your "yardsticks" to "learn' anything about your professed faith, or do you simply trust in "Rev. Hovind/Dr. Dino?"
