Look you: If your 'true heart's desire' is to be worthy of the love of your deity, it says a lot that you wish to remain anonymous.

If you were REALLY saved, you would be out in the world as yourself, rather than hiding behind the anonymity of an internet forum....aren't you proud to be such an exemplary Christain? Go be real.

In the "world" I am myself. I am known as I'm known. I don't post my real name or address for the same reason you prob.don't. I am REALLY saved. One either is or they either isnt.:)

My desire is to tell others God is real, not to tell them how to be baptist, catholic, or a morman.

I "on my own and in my flesh" will never be worthy of God's Love. That is the whole point behind grace.

Now again my hearts desire is to simply tell others about a guy who for years thought there was no God. How I thought life was a bitch then you die. How just about every single thought those who don't believe now have, I had. I would say what a cruel God. If you make all the right choices and live a good enough life you just might make it to heaven, but if not you go to hell. Well I knew I was not good at being good.

I have since learned that no one is.

The angels look down upon us and marvel. Why would God love us???

Yet He does.

Although there are countless choices we can make in our life, that either makes us better or worse, there is only one choice we can make, that determines what happens to our soul at the death of our physical bodies.

Oh, and I to used to think I knew what people should do or say if they were REALLY saved.

Perhaps you would like to read about King David "a man after God's own heart", and what choices he made.

I like many get sidetracked on topics such as abortion.

Hey lady, may I ask if you ever wished you would have aborted?
Have you ever wondered what if?
Hope all is well :)
No, I never wished I had aborted. Many of the things I've done in life were because of my kids, and they were good experiences and are good memories. My first college degree was an Associate's from a local community college and my oldest daughter was in the audience to watch me walk across the stage. She was 5 at the time. Both kids were around when I earned my BS.

Most of our trips and vacations meant more because of my kids. I enjoyed the years of cheering at softball games, and before that was the "Little Dribblers" basketball programs on Saturday mornings. Christmas was all about the kids...etc.

I think every parent has had moments when they wonder what their lives would have been if they'd never had kids. I would've been a famous FBI profiler with an ultra-exciting life like on Criminal Minds...lol!

I think we all somehow end up where we were supposed to be anyway. I live a nice, peaceful life of anonymity and modest means, and now I cheer on my kids in a different way. it's time for them to chase excitement and think about changing the world, and for them to forge their own path.

All is well here, thank you. I hope all is well with you, too.

My friend "GTown," I fear you're laboring under the delusion that the majority of abortions are preformed because the "pregnancy" is simply an inconvenience.
Nobody "really" knows why a woman chooses to have an abortion and, honestly, it's really none of our business one way or another...
That said, your question to "Moon," was inappropriate, inadvisable, and, utterly manipulative.
"Moon" has, on more than one occasion, proven herself to be your friend--do not betray her trust by putting her in this sort of a situation.
Thank you, my friend! I was a bit shocked by the bluntness of the question, but found I was able to answer him anyway.

Thinking about aborting, and at some point thinking what our lives would've been like without having kids is really two very different things. I truly think every parent, at one time or another, has thought about what life would've been like if they had stayed free and childless (and maybe single) forever. It doesn't make one a bad person.

My mother had wanted to be a physical therapist but got married, had kids and became a secretary ( she was a secretary first of course) because that's how it was done in those days. I'm sure she had many wistful moments thinking about what might've been, but in the end I don't think she would've changed a thing.

I had thought that you were actually interested in if I had ever wondered what my life would've been like if I didn't have kids, not specifically did I ever "wish" I had aborted. Clearly you worded your question poorly, but I think I got what you meant.

You are sadly delusional if you think I care what you think.

Does he still have his "thing"? Your interest indicates you are in need of one. Perhaps you should stop at a retailer and purchase your missing thing?

Good morning Milady "Moon."
You need never thank me for that sort of thing--in fact, I probably ought to offer an apology to "G" for pouncing on his post the way I did; I feared you were being set-up for what I tend to think of as a "Doc" scenario.
We're all, by now, familiar with these. They involve asking a question from which the one asking the question wishes to receive a specifically intended answer in order to confirm the questioner's previously held opinion. "Bitner," and "Katie," are the current recipients of such forms of interrogation that are disguised as a dialogue but are really meant to badger, harass, cajole, or otherwise manipulate the poster they're aimed at. I should have had a little more faith in "G," and figured that he probably would not do that sort of thing to you. As it stands, though "Doc" hasn't been around in quite awhile, it seems there are now several posters who've adopted that tactic.
Now, that said, I'm a person who's firmly of the belief that if a woman chooses to have a child, it's none of my business. Likewise, if a woman chooses to have an abortion--for any reason whatsoever--it's none of my business. I am one of those people who's wary of granting "rights" to the "unborn" because I worry about where we're going to draw the proverbial "line." We've already seen scenarios where politicians are attempting to grant "person-hood" status to fertilized eggs. Are frozen IVF embryos "people?"
The one thing I truly dislike about many of the P-L crowd is that whenever they're given an inch, they're still annoyed because they weren't given a mile. Kinda like the current "Tea-Party" crowd.
Looking back at my post all I can think is, "Good Grief!" What a grammatical nightmare!
Going comma crazy, misplaced dashes, and misusing "preformed," for "performed."
For heaven's sake "John," don't imbibe in the Chianti before posting on Topix.

;P

My husband loves me enough to respect me, putting his desires last. He would never have his wife go through a risky procedure that kills his child. We have children but when I couldn't get pregnant, he used his brain and avoided sex.
You poor confused woman.
Ahh, my husband did not make me do anything....that would be your husband and boss. The final decision was MINE. Learn to read and comprehend. Your husband would demand that you carry HIS kid if it was detrimental to your health and well being. Sorry sister, that does not sound like anyone who would love anyone. As I understand you would rather your daughter die than have a life saving abortion? That explains your concept of love on many levels. It doesn't exist. You are a control freak living with another control freak. Poor you.

Not me! I embrace honest conversation but have zero patience for double talkers.
Why wouldn't katie be okay with this woman making a choice to killl her unwanted child(all of a sudden)?
Katie agreeing with RvW is justified. RvW is just and reasonable law. You on the other hand could not care less about the woman/girl. You don't believe in abortion for any reason including the life of the mother. You are the two faced one, you are not pro life you are anti woman and anti choice, and a fetus worshipper. Most sane people do not buy into religious fanatic bullshit and that is a problem for YOU.

You're back to dancing.
You said you agreed with RvW restrictions did you not ? RvW allows restrictions post viability UNLESS there is a certifiable health/life threat to the mother. So you agree with denying a woman an abortion post viability and forcing her to gestate unless there is a health or life threat.
You agree with her right to an abortion as long as it is under the circumstances YOU agree with, that is, it must be pre-viability and if it is not, then it must be ONLY in cases of maternal health /life threat.
Nosy parker.
So it goes back to viability (which I posted some time back).
Those who argue that viability starts at birth therefor abortion is never restricted prior to birth.
Those who argue that viability starts with a fertilized egg say that's when restrictions start.
I don't see any of your post arguing with anti-choicers..

Katie agreeing with RvW makes her anti-choice, not pro-choice.You people make yourselves look foolish when you claim that you support a woman having total control over her body and pregnancy (nobody's business bur hers),then admit that you agree with a law which rrstricts her so called rights and choices.

You proaborts are not very bright if you think you sound anything but ridiculous.

I am 100% anti-choice to kill preborn humans while you and katie are 1/3 pro-abortion and 2/3 anti-choice. Now go do-si-do your proabort dance partner around it.

You dodged what I said to you about your husband avoiding sex with you when fertile to avoid putting you at risk for getting pregnant while having tumors where you said you looked 4 months pregnant.

You just makeup your own scenarios don't you? Show me where I stated that I had tumors prior to the pregnancy? The pregnancy was the cause of the tumors ya idiot. I was starting menopause at the time and we were using a form of BC. I aborted at 3 weeks and at 3 weeks looked 4-5 months preggers. I chose not to go forward all things considered. My husband agreed. Too bad for you, you did not get a say, the decision was mine. Poor you.

"Gtown," My apologies for coming down as hard on you as I did earlier with regard to your query to "Moon."
It's unfortunately become commonplace on this thread for seemingly innocuous questions to actually harbor ulterior motives. Your questions to "Moon" aroused my suspicions.
Clearly, as your later posts have shown, you had no such intention.

Once again, I offer my apologies for suspecting you of such.

Best,

JK.
