Gtown wants me to preach hell and damnation. Problem with that is it turns people off. He wants me to tell you Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior -- as if you weren't raised Catholic and/or have never heard of Christianity and have no clue what it espouses. Clearly, he can't accept that the non-Christians on this thread have heard it all and don't subscribe to it. He thinks beating folks over the head with the "one verse revolving Rev." approach will convert you.

And for some reason, he thinks me posting in detail what I have learned from actually studying the Bible is an attack on him. He's scared of knowledge because it highlights his ignorance. Can't act all superior when he doesn't know what the fck he's talking about.

I said YOU responded to a post I wrote. I responded to you incorrectly. I already apoligized to you.
Are you incapable of admitting you responded to me in error? Are you incapable of actually writing out the wordS that consist of an apology? Because what you wrote below blames me for something YOU did.

What makes you think I don't tell people everything I know about Christianity? Maybe not you. You've proven yourself, thus far, to be "swine". That can change. Then, I might educate you.
I don't judge anyone. I haven't judged you. I've simply shared my observaions regarding your lying and hypocrisy. Judging would be me talling you you're going to hell or you're Satan's handmaiden, which I have not done. Nor will I. I don't know your heart, as God does. I simply think you have A LOT of work to do. You haven't changed since being saved. You're behavior is no different. What's bad for you, tho, is you think being saved has given you license to be a jackass, cuz you're forgiven everytime you do it. You seem to have forgotten all about the "repenting" part.
I think you did judge him as swine, a liar, a hypocrite and a jackass just in this one post.
Want to backpedal on the judging thing?

That's an (your) emotional explanation. It's not the medical definition of abortion which is simply pregnancy ending prior to term.
abortion /abor·tion/(ah-bor´shun)
1. expulsion from the uterus of the products of conception before the fetus is viable.
2. premature stoppage of a natural or a pathological process.

----------

artificial abortion induced a.
complete abortion one in which all the products of conception are expelled from the uterus and identified.
habitual abortion spontaneous abortion occurring in three or more successive pregnancies, at about the same level of development.
incomplete abortion that with retention of parts of the products of conception.
induced abortion that brought on intentionally by medication or instrumentation.
inevitable abortion a condition in which vaginal bleeding has been profuse and the cervix has become dilated, and abortion will invariably occur.
infected abortion that associated with infection of the genital tract.
missed abortion retention in the uterus of an abortus that has been dead for at least eight weeks.
septic abortion that associated with serious infection of the uterus leading to generalized infection.
spontaneous abortion that occurring naturally.
therapeutic abortion that induced for medical considerations.
threatened abortion a condition in which vaginal bleeding is less than in inevitable abortion and the cervix is not dilated, and abortion may or may not occur.

Abortion

Definition of ABORTION

1

: the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus: as

a: spontaneous expulsion of a human fetus during the first 12 weeks of gestation — compare miscarriage

b: induced expulsion of a human fetus

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/abo...

Surgical abortion is a procedure that ends a pregnancy by removing the fetus and placenta from the mother's womb (uterus).

Surgical abortion is not the same as miscarriage. Miscarriage is when a pregnancy ends on its own before the 20th week.

No I am not nuts. I am pushing you to admit you were blaming me for something you did. You did not apologize. "Sorry" could mean any damn thing under the sun. Saying you "incorrectly" does not exude an admittance of an error. Be precise. Don't expect me to be easy going with you after you've been such a hardass to me for no reason other than we don't share the hive-mind so important to your existence.

STO certainly HAS spoken of his beliefs here, and has done more than his share of education, and people like me appreciate that its done from a place of understanding that not eveyone shares the same beliefs, and respect FOR those other beliefs.
Something you can't seem to grasp.
I remember talking to you about the sacred name, YHVH. I gave you a link you said you were going to share with your Rabbi.

I'm always interested to hear from you, having studied your faith, Judaism, since Christianity can't be understood without knowledge of the OT.

Gtown's head would explode if he knew the OT had been translated into many many many languages by JC's time. Don't tell him. He thinks the Bible should be read in English as is. No translating and God forbid no comparision to other translations -- like Coptic.(fascinating nuances and levels of understanding one would miss if all they did was read the King James or any other English translation. I guess he thinks French and Spanish speaking folks don't have French and Spanish translations -- lol).

Oh dear. You do have some issues. What we don't share is your self deception. Abortion kills a child and it is morally wrong.You delude yourself that it doesn't and that because it is legal, it is moral.

People can convince themselves of anything and learn to believe it.

"induced abortion that brought on intentionally by medication or instrumentation."

"spontaneous abortion that occurring naturally."

You are showing off you idiocy again.

Classifying the word abortion into spontaneous, noninduced, induced, and termination does not change the definition of abortion -- pregnancy ending prior to term. All it does is show different ways it ends prior to term.

But keep proving me right, Sue. It'll help you make up for coming out of the gate in attack mode the other night.

That is your claim. That induced abortion is somehow *different* than spontaneous abortion. And it's not.

You keep showing it's not. You keep highlighting it is only an emotional difference for those who cannot accept not all women accept their unplanned pregnancies.

The definition of abortion does NOT say pregnaccy ending naturally prior to term. It'd have to say exactly that for you to be correct.

What difference does it make? Everybody knows what an abortion is and a spontanious abortion is commonly called a miscarriage. No one is confused about which is which.
