Friends, strangers, activists, readers. I think its time to take a stand. I'm finding that I've been scared to share my real opinions on issues of actual importance. On things such as abortion, homosexual rights, capital punishment, the health care bill.
First of all, let me just tell you that I am a covanent, reformed, orthodox, presbyterian, Christian. And I would like to ask that all comments on this post be made in a rational, non-insulting way. Logical arguments and debates will be excepted, name calling and degrading comments that have nothing to do with the subject will not.
In my opinion abortion is wrong. I believe that it is murder. I do not believe that it is a womans right to abort a baby because it is her body. Because our bodies are not our own!
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6:19)
The Bible pretty much lays out what I believe. Of course there is hope! We are all sinners, whether we like it or not. Do you think I haven't been greedy? Or I haven't slandered? Think again. But I have been forgiven, and I'm in the proccess of being sanctified.
We shouldn't pass judgment on gay friend, every friend we have is a sinner, does that mean we don't hang out with them, or we hate them? Of course not! We love them and we try to encourage them toward Christ!
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
The bad thing about capital punishment is that people who are inoccent (non of us are inoccent by the way, but there a certain crimes that are deserving of death on earth) are somethimes killed.
Leviticus 24:17-22: "And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.
The health care bill.
We shouldn't HAVE to have healthcare. I mean, would you want to governemnt to feed you only vegatables? Also, it shouldn't be the governments job to provide this for us!
Alright! *claps hands* lets get some good conversations going! L<3VED
P.S. for all those who are all "But a loving God would never do this or that," Just remember that God created the wicked for their own desruction. I love the book of proverbs.
