One of two things happen.

There is no other option.

Just saying.

Personally, I would go with the one the doesn't involve death.

Even though you appear to be a decent person, you really can't claim that Christianity isn't a huge part of the mean-spiritedness here. You don't see us talking about them being stepped on like cockroaches or being covered in dung like they do us.

<quoted text>Yes, and a Grandmother. My daughter in law rang me in tears when my grandson was 2 months old, telling me she was pregnant again and devastated. She didn't know how my son would take it, or in fact, the rest of my family, as she fell pregnant fairly early in their relationship.
They just celebrated their 10 year renewal ~( the avatar pic I am using at the moment is one taken of me giving a speech at their anniversary) and the two boys are there, quite often mistaken as twins seeing as there is only 11 months between them.
My beautiful granddaughter was already a part of Mel's life when she joined our family, but I am very Blessed, and love each one of those grandchildren for their own personalities.
I would imagine abortion was well and truly discussed through those early days of that pregnancy, and each moment I spend with my youngest grandson, I know how lucky I am to have him in my life.
He has an amazing personality, and loves music and singing and is a real romantic at heart!! One time, when we had 4 boys here, one of them swore, and the little fella said, how can you swear in this home, it is almost like a Church?
We Pray before our meals ~ in fact, we take turns in Praying; we took the 4 boys to see The Life of Pi and even though it was such a GOD driven movie, these boys aged from 12 to 10 years old sat there with us until the end, where as I have seen adults complain and stop watching.
Starting to sound like I love my children and grandchildren, I guess, but that is good, because it is exactly how I feel - lucky indeed to have them in my life :)
if you do not like abortions, do not have one.

other people own their body, and their life, and their lifestyle.

eat your dirty book, and have sex with your god, and mind your own business.

*** I love these old Scriptures..
Book of Revelation 7:7 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.........
Ever wondered why we still have the four corners as such, considering we know the Earth is as round as a sphere? And four directions..... Amazing, donchathink?

I don't like denominational church's (Uh oh I said the word that pisses Teddy off)...I have found a NON Denominational church and there are no airs or meeting grounds for Christian singles..(I'm sure some young people meet in church though)...And our church isn't owned by anyone (Just the members and the Pastor and Elders)....I'm sure you could find one you would like if you want to....But that is completely up to you.
I'm glad you are a Christian....A believer in Jesus and a Christ follower.

1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
But this is "wisdom" that you offer in its place:

"He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers." - Proverbs 6:13

According to Topix poster G_O_D, this piece of wisdom can be interpreted to mean that he speaks with his dick. I'm picturing an idiot on his back with his hands and feet up in the air, speaking and teaching with them, perhaps in sign language, while winking at us, perhaps in Morse code.

<quoted text>
Thank you. I have regrets, but not about my choices nor how I have lived my life - at least not those as an adult. I am lucky there.
My deepest regrets about my choices are from my youth. I regret the way I treated my first girlfriend at age sixteen. I was unkind in the way I broke it off. I didn't know how to do it better.
And I teased a girl in grade school with cerebral palsy. I hate that I did that, but didn't know better. I found that girl years later on Facebook, now a wife and mother, and expressed my shame and regret to her. She told me that she had gotten so much abuse in those days that she considered me one of the nicer people, never thought ill of me, and even confessed that she had had a crush on me. That just made me feel worse.
But I was a boy.
I also killed lizard by accident once when I lifter the rock it was under and couldn't hold it up. And I fired a pellet into a bird once, also as a boy. These are the episodes that left lasting impressions of regret.
Reading this account brings to mind a rather dark statistic.

<quoted text>What "demonstration" do you require and why do you need it? I have only ONE that I have to answer to and study to show myself approved to, and that is not you, in the years that you have been posting on this thread and reading and responding to everyones posts, I'm sure you likely know what you need to do as far as salvation goes, if you chose not to believe then you simply do not believe, but stop bugging others with your endless line of playing games because I am not interested.
Thanks

You gave a testimony to me not your GOD, I asked for a demonstration rather than expressed words, if in fact your belief is true.

If you possess something other than your thoughts, you should be able to give a demonstration, unless of course it's all in your head.

Don't forget this is an entertainment site, are you sure your GOD wants you here?

You people aren't fit to be making moral judgments for the rest of society. We have a better way - a MUCH better way.

Oh, you have surely shown on here what great moral judgements you make as a humanist. You probably by yourself on this billboard do more harm to that philosophy than all the other freethinkers combine

I like the idea of dissolving legal marriage altogether.

Sure, extensively question away, if you don't play games I won't either.
Traditional gender roles have zero to do with loyalty and commitment.
Ok. We get married, make promises and VOW to one another, you know what that means right? I'm guessing from your posts that you do.
I left my siblings, a promising career and everything I knew to marry this man and move to a strange place where I knew no one, fair enough, I loved him and would have followed him anywhere and done anything for him, I wasn't religious at the time but I meant my vows, with all my heart and I was not the marrying kind either. To me, marriage meant forever, no matter what.
He's a Soldier.
Year 1 of marriage, I get pregnant. He cheats whilst away on an 'Exercise', which I find out later on was no Exercise, just a nice getaway for two, for a month, with our savings.
I'm shattered, I forgive him and choose to just believe his lies and we have a son.
Year 2 of marriage. We decide I should not return to work and be a SAHM. He didn't like me working and I'm too protective of my kids to let strangers spend more time with them than me. I go to work for my last week as he gets a few weeks leave and can care for our son. My last day turns out to be on the 3rd day instead of the 5th. I get home and find him on the couch with one of his mate's wives.[Insert graphic 'pornea' here]. Our son was asleep.
There's some drama, the woman ends up on her bare butt in front of my house and has to go find a phone, he follows her with her things, gets her home safe and comes back to some more of my fury.
I'm angry, then shattered then a little numb. I forgive him and again decide to believe his promises and his lies. Six months later he confesses that woman he was seeing is pregnant. I accepted and loved his little daughter when he had access, not her fault.
Year 3. We have another son and when the baby is 6 months old, my 'husband' decides that he doesn't love me anymore and I should move out of his army house so the other woman he loves can move in. By this stage we had moved twice and are in WA, on the other side of the country. All this follows me hardly ever seeing him because he was 'working' long hours and had his new woman on his lap, in front of me and many others, the day before, at an Anzac day BBQ.
That separation lasted 1 year, I moved back to be close to his family, studied, became a bit less shattered and went on with life. Did not even so much as flirt with another man. His affair breaks down, he comes back and wins me over (I still loved him). I choose to believe him and forgive him.
Year 4. We have our third son. I put on more weight than usual and have some complications throughout the pregnancy. He starts to go out again, coming back drunk, hardly ever around. One of his sisters starts to spend time with me and helps me when she can. By the time my baby son is 10 months old, I've become a Christian which brought me peace, which is a good thing as otherwise I might have killed him that time. The affair had been going on for a year. I found out and had to move out with my three boys. My boys had to stay with their Grandparents for 11 weeks because I had a miscarriage, found out about the affair a week later and was moved out by a week after that. Then, a few days later I found out his mistress was pregnant. I had a complete nervous breakdown.
That was in April 2009. I have been alone and celibate this whole time and have just been enjoying my boys and studying again. His relationship with his mistress is over and he's had 2 others since and moved himself to a different state, barely even calls his sons. He has not tried to divorce me nor I him but I am numb.
Bring it.
You are entitled to BE HAPPY....Its about time

You didn't get your promised peace that passeth all understanding, did you? What did you get for all those hours and dollars invested and opportunities lost?
And where are your fruits of the Spirit? "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
You didn't get any of that. All you got was anger and frustration.
That's what the promises of your god are worth. He also promised to return to earth again soon. You've been stood up.
This same source promises you eternal life later if you give it your life and the lives of your children now. Good luck collecting on that, too.
Did you at least get the magic beans?
?????

What this have to do with how I feel about secular humanism?

Jesus had peace, and Jesus rebuke the pharisees with passion for they hypocrisy.

That pretty much my attitude toward your belief. I have great peace, I just enjoy ripping secular humanism to shreds for its immorality and hypocrisy.

You not a Christian anymore, why you worried about when Jesus will return?

Because you're still a religious slave. The primary goal of the Jesus follower is to live life to the fullest until they die of old age, then meet Jesus.

Seeing Jesus return is not something the Jesus Follower should get up everyday worrying about. 99.999% of Jesus Followers will be dead when Jesus comes back. So live life for Jesus, that .01% that will be alive when Jesus come back probably won't be anyone living today.
