  1. Yes, I realized what happened after I posted, but could not figure out a way to address my response to gerbilgirl. My apologies.
  2. Not to be disrespectful to your opinion, but it is just that, an opinion. We all have them, but the one thing that is true for a believer in Christ Jesus is that the Bible is God's Word. He created the universe and everything in it. He has decided what is wrong and what is right. Your opinion does not mean anything after you die and stand in front of an Almighty God to be judged. Your opinion will have just led you into eternal separation from God, into a place of torment, where there will be no escape because you refused to believe the Truth of God's Word. I am not trying to scare you or judge you, but this is just reality. When we receive Christ as our Savior, we must become His disciple and that requires us to read His Word and to change our opinions to be in line with His. That means we have to repent and turn from our sins. Just because it is popular does not make it righteous in God's eyes. The same goes with abortion. It is a sin because God said it was. Even though our country has gone down that path, we are not absolved of murder in God's eyes. We can be forgiven because He is, oh, so gracious, but it will never, ever be righteous regardless of who may say it is "ok."
  3. Yes, everyone has free will to sin, but because God is so good, He shows us in His Word that which will make for us the best life. He loves us and wants the best things for us. If you want to live a happy life, agree with God, and do as best as you can to follow what He says to do. When you fall into sin, confess it and get back up and live in His wonderful grace of forgiveness. The freedom to sin is not freedom, it is bondage, emotionally, financially, physically. Sin brings suffering and pain - guaranteed!
  4. Even if, for whatever reasons, a person may have an inclination toward the same sex, that is not the issue. The issue is that if you are a Christian and believe what the Bible says, that God created the sexes male and female with the ability to procreate to be fruitful and multiply, that He made the institution of marriage between man and woman, and that he told us what righteousness is and what is an abomination to Him, then we must admit that this lifestyle is a sin. I understand if a person was formerly in it or is struggling with it, but if a person claims to be a Christian and cannot bring themselves to confess this lifestyle as a sin, then they are blinded by the god of this world and need to come to terms with the fact that God does not condone this behavior. Besides that, whatever sexuality you may believe you are, it is not impossible to abstain from it, just because God said so. So in the end, having sex is a choice, whatever or however you may think you were born. God loves each one of us even with our wrong choices and that does not stop Him from loving us; however, as with all sin, there are consequences, heartache and pain.
  5. Yes, it is so true. Liberals of all stripes want to use this issue as a human rights hammer against anyone or any institution or business that disagrees with them. It is not a right, it is a choice. People make stupid choices. We don't hate the person, but hate the sin. That lifestyle along with many others such any sex outside of marriage (between a man and a woman) brings consequences. Kudos to the Rabbi for speaking the truth.
  6. I can say that because I know these people personally and I know their hearts. It sounds contradictory to me as well. That is why I brought up the topic in the first place. I cannot wrap my head around it. Thank you for your lesson on social justice and socialism though.
  7. Of course, I do (know what a born-again Christian is), as you can see by my post above this one. I know it is not a prerequisite for salvation, obviously! However, I do very much wonder what they are thinking. If you think of everything the Democrat party stands for, it is mind-boggling to me. I feel like they are standing on the wrong side of righteousness. I feel frustrated that I am not able to get them to see that. It is what it is, so I will just pray and hope they see the error of their ways!
  8. I know that is NOT true, because some very spirit-filled ladies in my Bible study are Democrat. We have decided not to talk about politics because their views are far different than mine. I think as some have said, a lot of it is because of "social justice" point of view. But for the life of me, I cannot understand this point of view. To me, social justice is teaching someone to fish or to own a fish market rather than to wait for their "portion" every day. Less regulation in every aspect of our lives would free us up to start businesses, hire workers, pay better wages and give to charities and churches to truly help the needy without the waste of the government. I do believe they are misled and are walking in the path of sinners. We need to pray for the blinders to be removed from their eyes.

    Prayer requests for me and mom...

    Father in Heaven, You welcome Your kids into Your Throne Room. You tell us to come boldly and to make our requests known to You. We come in the Mighty Name of Jesus, who has broken down the wall of separation between us. We come in His righteousness and with His authority. We humbly ask that You would stretch out Your hand and remove anything from this dear woman's body that may be abnormal. We declare that as Jesus's resurrected body is whole that her body be made whole and that by the Blood of Jesus she be healed. May all glory be Yours in this situation. Please lead and guide Kat to a place of worship where she feels the presence of Your Holy Spirit and where there are mature believers who can mentor her so that she grows in the wisdom and knowledge of Your Word. Amen. Blessings, Dabby.
  10. My intention was not to be judge and jury, but to wrap my head around their reasoning. If the Republican party no longer had a platform of being pro-life, and decided the Constitution really didn't matter anymore, and that I had to keep my religious faith in a closet, then I would leave that party. It is not the party I am wed to, it is the principles for which that party stands. As far as open borders is concerned, it does matter because those coming in illegally, for the most part, do not want to be American citizens. It seems to me that more and more of them want to "take back" what they perceive as their country. They desire anarchy and civil unrest to precipitate a civil war. They do not want to abide by our laws or Constitution. The underpinnings of our country are at stake which depend on being self-governed according to the laws enacted through our political process. "The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God." --John Adams wrote this on June 28, 1813, in a letter to Thomas Jefferson.
  11. That is very true, Jesus is not a member of party. He is the King of kings and he has declared what is evil in His sight. When we vote for and condone those things that Christ is against, then it seems to me we are on the wrong side of truth and standing with evil. I cannot judge a person's heart, only God can. I do believe they are misled, though. Doesn't the Bible say "Do not stand in the path of the wicked."
  12. Wow! That's pretty much it in a nutshell.
  13. My gut tells me this is a real possibility. They've worked too hard to fundamentally change America to release their grip willingly. This administration has not abided by the Constitution nor enforced our agreed-upon laws. Why would we think they would abide by our transfer of power traditions? We shall see, but the bussing in of protestors and the premade protest signs are a hint at what might be coming.
  14. I guess the question should be, "Why would a born-again Christian choose to align themselves with the Democrat party?" I know that some do, but to me, things are mostly black and white, right or wrong. I think the liberal media may have a lot to do with the far left-leaning news they hear much of the time or maybe it is family tradition when there were such things as conservative democrats, but those are long gone. I would love to hear from Christians who vote for the Democrats. I really want to understand their paradigm.
