In your case, it's INTENSELY counterproductive - you are turning people farther away from wanting to develop a relationship with the 'god' you claim to worship.
Every time you post.
Just so you know.
Exactly. And here's a wild guess, he ignored this like he ignores everything he doesn't like. Lets read on and see if I'm right again.....

The relationship goes both ways God is always there. He does call. Sometimes over and over. As sometimes we hear. Sometimes we ignore .we think hmm is that a coincidence ..etc..
The answer..that part is up to us:)
You said the key phrase - its G-d's call, NOT Gtowns. He doesn't speak for G-d. Thankfully!

Dying is also natural, then. And outside intervention, such as a feeding tube, or any other kind of medical intervetion, is not. Why, then, do we go to doctors?
Why do you feel a feeding tube that terrie shiviavo had was unnatural, but having an abortion is natural?

You're smart, and I know you know the difference in a spontanious abortion, and one bought and paid for.

Oh and the other day on Helen Keller, I meant when she was young, not after much time and effort was spent on communications were spent on her.

Interesting.
Ok we believe He set up natural laws. For everything
That people used plants to do something like abortion was using them in a way that was not natural.
With all due respect Rose, but says who?

How do you know this isn't EXACTLY what G-d had in mind for those plants?
We were made man and woman. With parts that allow us to procreate.
A natural outcome is offspring or else the species die out. That is what's natural.
The species isn't dying out, for the same reasons it doesn't die out because of cancer or other medical issues we ALSO deal with my interfering with the "natural" process.

We were given free will. If G-d doesn't want abortion to exist, one can argue that he simply wouldn't have made it possible. One can't question G-d, so as humans, we do the best we can with the free will he gave us.

This boils down to me, to if G-d dont like it, HE will deal with it, one on one with the women making the choices.

Its ultimately between Him and them, nobody elses OPINION means anything.

But Rose, you are very much what I aspire to, in matters of nicety. Pithy, but unfailingly polite.

I actually rather treasure your outlook, as it usually seems so considerate. Something to look forward to, even when we don't agree.

So the first vaginal activity she had was childbirth...with no anesthetic?

Well the main thing ..it was not creepy for Mary. She was not required to have carnal knowledge in order to acquiesce like the supposed pagan God's with their phony priest standing in for the "gods"' to me that is creepy. Just sayin.
It is a mystery of Faith. We believe that in order for the sacrifice to be perfect..it had to be a Man without sin..but there were none. JESUS was fully man (through Mary) and fully God.
He had to be. The perfect unblemished lamb led to slaughter.

A baby elephant requires a mother's care for years; taking a pair of babies would have done extreme harm. BTW--where does it say they took yo9ung animals. Even if they happened to have missed that detail, they would have had to gather platypuses from australia, llamas from south america, penguins from the south pole, etc. Then, of course, you have the thousands of species of
birds, bats, insects, worms, etc. Even with all those, you would have needed to meet all their dietary needs (including carnivores). The queen mary would be way too small for such a trip.

It doesn't say they were babies, it just said two of each "kind" not species, and that was of the unclean animals, since they had 7 of the clean.

It is only commom sense they didn't have to get the largest animals. It was a very big boat. A rich guy in Austraila is building a replica now.

May have only been two dogs on board, that all dogs today came from?

She wasn't forced CPTER. She said let it be done. And God would not have chosen her if she was going to say no. He knew of her long before she was born

There was no intercourse. Nothing in scripture which is where we get this info ..says anything remotely like that.
I know you don't believe any of this..But we are,discussing here what was said about her.

Ok Katie..though it will be a repeat of something I probably said someplace before.
There is a huge difference. Yes the pregnancy ends in both..no matter the stage. But if a woman WILLINGLY goes to a Dr to end it. SHE is ending the human life of her Own offspring. More than likely a healthy offspring. This is NOT a natural thing for a human mother. And it can take a toll on her too.
In other stages when she can feel the movement that was already there it would be harder to my mind. Maybe not that day.
Ok one example
How would you tell a child who knows you ate pregnant...I am going to a clinic and when I come back there will be no brother or sister ..and probably not a conversation to have. But it us a toll it can take on the woman herself to know that is just what she did. USE BC. It works most of the time..
.But in the normal human nature. We women are meant to be murderers..this is how a species survives. It is normal and natural for us.
Now I know that there are women with NO part of the maternal in them.
IMO they should have their tubes tied or some other form if long term contraception. In some of the cases we see in the news. I'D love to help them do it!!!! With s blunt knife. But we are civilized. And to me that also means we do not end life in the womb.
Our own or others.
Use protection is the answer or don't have sex. Not perfect but imo better than abortion
Ok done lol
I do not agree there is a "huge difference" between spontaneous and induced abortions. Both mean pregnancy ended prior to term. The only difference I see is that spontaneous abortion usually, but not always, ends wanted pregnancy. Induced abortion ends unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy.

With that in mind, please give medical reasons why women should not want to end their unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies in the earliest stages. Ninety-eight percent of all abortions occur within the first trimester. Those are what's being addressed.

As for your arguments/reasoning against abortion, I hear you. Have heard these same arguments/reasoning from the whole bunch of you over the years. It's as if you've all read from the same script and use the same talking points.

Dogs come from wolves. Domestic cats, however, have more than one progenitor. Where'd they get the platypuses and penguins?

Yet having someone tell me how I should represent God, WHO DOESN'T KNOW GOD.
Lets stop right there. Many of us DO know G-d. Who in the hell do you think YOU are to tell others - whether they're Christian or not, that they dont know G-d??? You ain't SHIT son!

You dont speak for me, you dont speak for ANYONE here, you CERTAINLY dont speak for G-d. You speak for YOURSELF ONLY, and your OPINIONS, you speak NO facts.
is like me "who has No experience as a nurse, try and tell elise or others nurses how they should do their job.
See, that's the thing, its Elise's JOB, she's paid to DO her job, she's TRAINED to do her job. She's ASKED to do her job.

Nobody's asking you to bore us with your arrogant, bullshit, LYING lectures about your version of FAITH. You certainly dont know more about G-d than I do, in fact - you dont actually know SHIT about G-d as I believe in Him for example. Worse, you dont CARE to know about others faiths or beliefs. You ignore EVERYTHING you've been told.
Plus it's is hard to do on an open forum.
In the world, if I'm talking to someone who isn't saved, I approach it alittle differently.


I'm sure you do. For one thing, you would get punched in the mouth if you said some of the bullshit you say here. For whatever reason, you think its perfectly okay to harass and lie TO and ABOUT people here as you do about me on a regular basis for just one example.
When someone openly, willingly, curses my God, then they need a different kind of responce then Jesus loves you.
Yes, they need you to take the hint and shut up about it. If you aggrivate people to the point where they're cursing you and your version of g-d IRL, its time to move on. YOU are doing something very wrong, not them.

Just to be clear. I believe that Jesus is the way..the truth and the light. I profess my faith. I have explained it in detail in several posts.
I believe He will come again in glory.
I believe those who see him..everyone. will bow their knee and know who He is.
Personally. I DON'T put down people who believe other ways.
In professing my faith..I would like if someone would be curious or led by God to find out more.
IMO. If we plant a seed it will or will not grow. Nothing I say can or should Force a person to belief in Christ.
HE NEVER DID THAT..HE never taught that. HE calls people to Him sometimes through a tv programs..Sometimes a coincidence..maybe a word in a forum..But they are only one part of His calling. I know it was not just some one thing I heard or read. I had heard of Him and believed most of my life. But I had not come to true Faith for decades. If we are meant to and ready..we will hear HIM.
Rest is between God and each individual person.
Sometimes it cones up mire than once. When I came back on here I made a comment about talking about faith and still was told that this forum certainly was intertwined with the subject.
Of course it comes up. A lot of my Pro-life belief is because I believe God knit us in the womb. For me a lot is more personal..and that comes up too.
In talking about a lot if subjects on here ..it comes up.
But I won't disrespect anyone on here who is respectful to me.
Their faith or non faith gives me no right to be rude.
If they are rude in a personal manner. I am just not going to respond if I can control myself lol.
Finally. GOD does not need me to prove His Existence. We will all see Him some day.
Beautiful post, Rose. I see the Divine in every day. In every waking moment, there is opportunity for us to interact with the Divine, and to work with it to enhance our lives.
(I told you our beliefs weren't all that different.)

But I also believe that if we were intended as 'stewards of the Earth', we've done a pretty poor job of it since the 1700's or so...We don't need to 'accept' the Divine into our lives, it is already there. What we must do is recognize it. This is STILL that 'garden of eden' Rose. There are simply too many of us who can't seem to find the latrines, and have crapped on the Azaleas.

You're SO full of shit Gtown. THere's millions of people that believe in Jesus, but have no need to shove that view down others throats. Get the hell over yourself already.
Jesus says that them that are ashamed of Him, that He will be ashamed of them in front of the Father.

I also can't help what others do -I feel compelled to tell others about THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN.

I don't speak for God, only about God.

Plus I've never in my life allowed anyone to "shove" anything down my throat.

God loves you very very very much, but He is a jealous God, and will not share His glory with other false gods.

If Heaven and Hell isn't real, or people can believe as they wish, and all are ok, then why have any worship, bibles, prayer, warning, preaching?

There are some "christians " that don't believe in hell, so why do they even preach??

He is worthy!
We worship to show Him He's worthy.

He changes lives, even can change how you talk to others.

Foo says nothing about Her God, and tells me to shut up.
You are a LYING SACK OF SHIT.

I have said quite a LOT about G-d as EVERYONE here can attest to, YOU have simply ignored it.

I have also NEVER told you to "shut up". I HAVE told you to move on, enough is too much.

I wish you WOULD shut up when it comes to lying about MY faith, I wont allow you to do that - and you DO do it quite often.

But I'm for free speech, and frankly, the more you mouth off, the more harm you do to yourself AND your cause, and I'm all for that.
Why does the message of the cross bother you sooo much???
AGAIN as you've been told AND you've ignored - its NOT the cross story that bothers anyone, its your ignorant, arrogant, repetitive presentation that we (and yes I'm speaking about MANY here who've told you the same things) simply dont give a shit about.
I don't want Anyone to spend eternity in hell /the lake of fire,
Its your hell, feel free to go burn in it. MOST of us wont care about your fictional hell either.
hearing gtown tell them about a loving God for all of eternity.
Personally, I'll take that a step further. An eternity with idiots like you in it would BE hell. What part of that do you not grasp?

The angel TOLD her; she acquiesced to the inevitable. When the minor girls of the FLDS were told they were going to marry their uncles or other older men, they didn't argue. They were raised to follow whatever a religious guy told them. Pretty much the same thing with marry--what real choice did she have?

Impregnating without intercourse may or my not be considered rape, but it's still taking advantage of a girl.
