Which can skew a person's perceptions. And it's an excellent point. You might say he's right on track.

Again, WHERE does your "perception" come from?

Publications are not perceptions.
However, common sense needs no explanation by it's definition. Same as common knowledge.
It's connecting the dots. You just have to connect them all to see the picture or the picture is distorted.
LOL, this little sidestep you're doing is not fooling anyone.

WHAT "dots" have you "connected" that form your "common sense" "perception"? What is your source?

Is there some reason you are reluctant to share with us what lead you to the conclusion you came to?

You're avoiding my question. Why?
Thought I did answer it - probably responsed to someone else.

Unless someone is in the process of seeking God or at a place in their life where they need God, no amount of witnessing will make them find him or need him. Especially in a fast-paced and high tech country like our own.

But there are many places in the world where the gospel is being heard for the first time through the work of missionaries.

There's a fascinating true story called 'End of the Spear'. Lives and hearts have been changed in even the most remote parts of the world.

Had to go back and see what we were initially talking about.

But I had said there's not a strong enough message being sent to young women to take precautions and the consequences of not doing so and the option of abortion has become the alternative to prevention.

So common sense would dictate if more women practiced prevention, abortion wouldn't need to be the alternative.

Given that the discussion was about the "witnessing" going on here, your post does not address the question.

Again, I'm asking what your source is for the last part of that statement. "Common sense" is not an answer. It's a copout. It's what people say when they DON'T have any evidence to base their beliefs on.

All I can do is provide definitions to define the difference between common sense and an optical illusion.

Optical illusion - a visual experience in which something is drawn or designed deliberately to fool the eye.

Common sense - good judgment: sound practical judgment derived from experience rather than study.

Perception - the process of using the senses to acquire information about the surrounding environment or situation.

Common sense and perception is acquiring information from experience and the surrounding environment.

An optical illusion is meant to fool the eye.

Well, Katie wished for a more interesting topic of conversation. How about that Alabama Representative who wants more restrictions on abortion clinics because, to paraphrase, abortion is major surgery because the fetus is the largest "organ" to be removed from a woman's body?

Why are people SO very ignorant of the facts of reproduction allowed to decide medical issues for others?

And does she realize that she just disproved the argument from her own side regarding the "personhood" of a fetus?

How stupid are these people?

Are you seriously suggesting that what you perceive when you look at train tracks is done DELIBERATELY?

Again, personal perceptions can be skewed, and result in poor judgement. They are not a reliable source.

You're dancing all over the place, desperately trying NOT to explain where your "perception" comes from. Which clearly indicates it's just something you want to believe for some reason, and not an actual fact. Got it.

No offense, but it's pretty simple.

If pregnancy isn't prevented, abortion is an easy and convienent alternative.

Maybe we're just splitting hairs now.

Anyway, believers will always be compelled to witness when an opportunity presents itself.

But arguing about is not helpful or necessary.

You're arguing for argument's sake now.

These concepts and definitions are not that complicated.

Well no doubt everything we do starts in the mind.
Adultry starts in the mind not the motel, by the time a person cheats on their spouse physically,they have already cheated as far as God is concerned.

So jesus couldn't have just exorcised the demons and left the pigs alone? His actions drove the pigs over the cliff. But it's cute you think pigs think things through and can consider committing suicide.
<quoted text>
Perhaps instead of being so concerned with the pigs, you should've noticed what happened to the man that had all those demons in him?

After they left him, he put on some clothes and was in his right mind.
The same Jesus that pulled the demons out of him, is the same one thay does it to men today.
No matter how many demons they may have.
He is the only one that can take a drunk, sex addicted, drug head, and change him "instantly ",without a 12 step program.
Kinda like the guitar player of korn.
He said as he walked by the windows of a small church and seen all the people inside with their hands raised, that he thought they were nuts!

He got back to his hotel, and started thinking, that either those people in that little church was crazy, OR they had something he needed.
When he went back he found his answer.

Pete - you won't answer my question. Why not? What do you have to hide?
It's ok, it's just me, you have nothing to worry about. I'm not like the rabid raccoon, Goo-Goo.
Is it coincidence, that there is one gay guy and one gay girl on here? What are the odds?
How do you know there's only two gay people posting here? You're obsessed with homosexuality. That must mean that you are a closeted lesbian, using your convoluted "logic."

We can dance around the issue until our feet get tired. But you cannot deny that abortions are a primary service of Planned Parenthood. And even though it is against the law for our our tax dollars to fund these abortions, there is no way to keep track of it.
Well said!!

An Organization like PP, who devotes much time energy and money into keeping it legal to snuff out the life of the unborn, is not someone you could trust to be ethical with taxpayers money.
Even if they didn't use any tp money to pay for abortions, how much do you think they use fighting to keep it legal?

Those of us who oppose abortion are FORCED to pay folks who advertize for abortion.

You did not. And if you really thought so, then obviously I'm giving you more credit for intelligence than you deserve.

You spoke of missionaries in remote corners of the world, when I was asking about here on Topix, where we all obviously have access to that information on the internet.

What is the point of preaching at people who already know, and don't care? None of what you said addressed this question.
