That was a bad time to misspell obtuse. Who's obtuse now?
You don't know the difference between a "typo" and a "misspelling" so I would guess that YOU would be the obtuse one.

Learn the difference. Knowledge is good.

Imputed means to credit or blame falsely. I didn't make it up. I didn't create it.
But your religion uses it. I say it uses it wrongly. If you think it's used correctly, great. I think you and the other "two billion" people have been misled. Sorta like the authorities were during the, um, scandal of the last century.
It means a lot of things but I showed you what it meant in his context, the biblical context and he used it correctly. Again it is just your opinion as to 'who' is being misled.

No I'm pretty sure you said they were divorced. Past tense means they were beyond the filing stage. So I guess now they got back together.

Just wow.
Really....that's the most interesting comment you've ever made.
<quoted text>Unlike your 'Godlike judgments' of how humans should behave with regard to sex, of course.
My belief system doesn't hand responsibility for making judgments about my life, to a deity. I reserve that responsibility on my own behalf. Your belief system may differ, and require you to cop-out on this responsibility for exercising your own judgment, by passing the buck to 'God'.

<quoted text>AIDS can be cured now.(Or 'killed' if you prefer.) Some people with AIDS still have unprotected sex. Does that mean we should withhold the cure when people get AIDS? They knew they were risking a sexually transmitted disease, by having sex,'protected' or not.
<quoted text>Are you telling me you're okay with the fact that it IS??????
Many "Non-motherly" women are also NOT GETTING PREGNANT. You'd prefer to stick to your script, and ignore them, apparently, than acknowledge their numbers are growing. Abortion rates are going down, remember?
Why are you picking an argument when there is none?

I know that is what you want to believe but it's just a way to get rid of a problem that is inconvenient.

Who is blaming who for what?
Really? You don't understand your own doctrine?

God blames Adam and all of mankind is held responsible.

God sacrifices Jesus to absolve mankind of the very sin He imputed upon mankind.

Mankind only has to believe Jesus is the Son of God to be absolved of the very sin God imputed onto mankind.

<quoted text>
That's not what it means at all.
is used to designate any action or word or thing as reckoned to a person. Thus in doctrinal language (1) the sin of Adam is imputed to all his descendants, i.e., it is reckoned as theirs, and they are dealt with therefore as guilty; (2) the righteousness of Christ is imputed to them that believe in him, or so attributed to them as to be considered their own; and (3) our sins are imputed to Christ, i.e., he assumed our "law-place," undertook to answer the demands of justice for our sins. In all these cases the nature of imputation is the same (Rom. 5:12-19; comp. Philemon 1:18, 19).

Yeah, seems like a bunch of head games. No wonder people find the dysfunction distasteful and leave the religion behind.

There's a difference between being unable to feel pain and being anesthetized, idiot. Embryos have no awareness or ability to think.

No wonder you identify with them.

BTW: Preborn try desperately to escape the threatening & pain-inducing weapons of the abortionistic-executioner.

You are wrong. It most certainly is a civil rights issue. The reason people like you want to pretend it's not, is so that you don't look like the asses you are for not fully supporting civil rights for all citizens. Just like the issue of same sex marriage.

So you're so stupid and w3eak that the government has to keep you from making choices? THEN YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE KIDS AT ALL. We already have the teabaggers; we don't need any more drooling idiots.

Why would a doctor allow an addict to tell him what to do when HE is the expert?

I truly don't know where you get that I don't take care of my child, but at any rate -I could've talk her into an abortion, but instead talked her out of one.
Just saying that option shouldn't have been available to us at.
Why not let drug addicts tell the doc how much med to give them, regardless if they truly need it?
It's their body, should be their decision, should it not?
The thing is, if she had left me, and did get an abortion, I wouldn't have had a say.
I'm the only reason he's here, but will Never tell him that.
Her getting pregnant was one of the greatest things to happen to me, since it played a major role in me knowing God.
People who find themselves in those places get "real" if they care at all about anything, others are just playing.
I truly do feel for those that are "there ",but an abortion is NOT what she nor I needed.
A life check is what we needed. It's what we got!
So what qualifies you or others to have power over the life of others?

Exactly. An embryo does not even have a heartbeat until the fifth week of pregnancy. It's merely a mass of evolving cells at that point.

It isn't arrogant to say that God loves me. God loves everyone. He isn't claiming exclusive love from the Almighty. He is inviting you to feel the same.

That may seem absurd to you but his feeling about how God, through His mercy has changed his life is genuine.

You would not abort. That's fine. But it doesn't make you smarter, holier, or better than a woman who does abort. Your view of the fetus and its importance is an opinion, not fact.

Abortion is only a way to get rid of an inconvenient situation caused by a skrew up.

What is wrong with that? Why argue about what abortion does?
