You are beyond ridiculous, and hate is spewing from your hate-filled mouth. Jesus loved and lived among the poor, the sick, and the sinners. And the living, merciful, Father I know would ask us to judge not, and do the same.

As a strong, educated Christian woman, you bother me more than anyone else here. I'm aware humans aren't "technical" angels, I have read & studied the Bible. It was used as a term of endearment, and yes... There are many who suffer for their beliefs, although before you go assuming "Mark's" heart or future path, maybe you should be atoning and praying for your own salvation in judging, speaking ill of one's neighbor, and seeing your own self as mightier and more proud.:(
an educated, Christian woman is an oxymoron.

you had better study the judge not lest ye be judged a little further...it is not meant to excuse people for doing wrong, we as christians are to keep each other in line, god will judge, that passage is not recorded to keep people quiet and tolerant of wrongdoings. Further more, mark uses filthy language, when you use filthy language you have a deeper seeded hate or aggression. Katie, god does not want you to be tolerant of filthy language, or wrongdoings.''its not what goes in a man that defileth him, but what comes out.'' do you know what this passage means? Hes not talking about food here, lol.

Wow! I'm on this forum to discuss my experience as a drug-addicted newborn. I am choosing to disagree with many things you have said, but, I suppose one day we can have that discussion with the Maker himself. Til' then; I'm not here to make this a "religion" or 'relationship' as I prefer, thread.

This thread has gotten too off-topic. Okay, about the topic at hand... It is so sad that some women doesn't care enough about their own child to not use drugs and consume alcohol while they're carrying them. It should be against the law to use drugs and consume alcohol while you're pregnant because it causes horrible health problems to the baby and can lead to life-long physical and mentally disabilities.

Yes, Sharon, life-long problems it does cause. I agree with what you have posted, and am thankful others are beginning to not only notice it, but discuss it and bring it to light. I've always been very ill; I'm not sure I would know life without sickness, side effects, and surgeries. It wasn't fair what my "birth mother" did while pregnant with me. 30 years later, I'm still struggling. You are right, there should be legal action, and this issue should be heard.:)

<quoted text>who are you? The certificate of preacher's association president? I know the truth is hard to hear, I know your lazy and dont wanna follow christ's ways and you wanna waste your life watching TV and still think when you die your gonna be at peace. I know you wanna drink beer and sleep with dirty women you wanna think that its ''ok''. I know your kind mark, you hate god because he requires selflessness from the selfish and you dont wanna change. You had better, before its too late.

I love God but I think your crazy as hell! If you want people to listen and learn what your teaching you may want to find a better way.

and what way is that jade? Tell everyone they are going to heaven and that they can do whatever they want and everything will be ok? Tell itching ears what they wanna hear as paul stated in timothy? Is that the way jade? Its ok everyone, live how YOU wanna live and not how god commanded, you will still go to heaven. Sorry jade, i may sin from time to time and im,shameful and ask forgiveness, but i will not preach a false doctrine, people hated jesus for the truth and i guess your just gonna haft to hate me as well. Your what the book of revelation calls a ''luke warm'' christian, you believe but you do not follow. Either accept the truth like I had to or perish. I loved videogames, you think i wanted to give them up? No, but it was either give up a satanic distraction and focus on the word of god, or continue playing violent disgusting filthy videogames or be judged, i woke up...why cant you?
