Actually, it is Satan who is putting those thoughts into the minds of atheists. He knows full well there is a God, but he is doing his darnedest to convince the atheist otherwise.

Reading these posts are probably much like some of the conversations between Noah and the lost souls of his time. it took Noah 100 years to build the ark. You would think that at least some of them would have considered that possibly Noah was right.

Spiritual warfare is being raged all around us on various fronts. It’s evident Satan has upped the ante on moral issues. Abortion is at an all time high. Many churches are falling away from the faith and following a false doctrine. We are fighting enemies who use vile forms of slaughter and execution to intimidate those who oppose them. Plagues, droughts, earthquakes. It has all been prophesied. We must keep our eyes on the Lord and continue to stand firm for our faith.

mcwilson–When justice is carried out and the defendant has been found guilty of a crime that caused loss of life through criminal and malicious action, then that person deserves to die. God decrees that in His Word. Romans 13:4

I think Tom’s point was the mothers want to avoid the consequences of the act. Sadly, married women sometimes abort their babies as well. Abstinence is the only sure way to avoid conception. The second safest choice is birth control pills, but many women are too lazy to take them on schedule. They sacrifice the life they have conceived for a moment’s pleasure and the “freedom” of taking no responsibility. This is murder!

Blink–God has already proven Himself real. Just look around. All creation exists by His design. I know that means nothing to you which is unfortunate because we all answer to God in the end. JG III spoke well to the other issue of genetic traits so I have no further comment
If nature indicated the existence of a god, then I think the sciences most closely associated with studying it would have the most religious people in them, and the opposite is true, as the scientists most likely to detect the 'finger prints' of a god, are the least likely to believe in one.
Even if there were any indicators that the world around us 'needed a god', there would still be no indicator that it was your specific god, so even if what you just said is 100% correct, you have no clue if it's your god, or some other god from another religion, or some god nobody has ever even heard of.
Wait, let me guess, you 'know in your heart'? Yeah, just like you 'know' the world needed a god to make it.

blink–choosing to be straight is not the issue. Straight is the natural course of behavior among all mammals and animals. Those who deviate are doomed to extinction for the obvious reason. In God’s creation, His plan for humanity is that male and female marry and reproduce. Granting equal rights to aberrant behavior is destructive to society and to the spiritual laws God has set in place.
yes, he would -- as the snakes are returning to Ireland.

GK–Right on all counts–especially about stupidly giving Obama more power. He should have been impeached long ago. I’ve had enough!

This does it for me. I won’t vote for any Republicans running for President who are currently serving in Congress. I will not vote for any Republicans who are related to previous office holders. That leaves Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson pretty much and that’s OK with me.
Don't 'throw the baby out with the bathwater'. There are some in Congress who have been and remain true to their principles. Watch the candidates closely, review their record, then decide. And don't be taken in by big spending, big government Progressives masquerading as 'Conservatives'.

I am having trouble with the Thumbs up/down icon registering. It will reflect the correct color, bit the vote count doesn’t change. Any idea what the solution is?

Actually, I meant to say that Obama’s inflammatory remarks–whether intended or not–have put all law enforcement officers in danger. It’s time for the president to address the violence that has been unleashed and the divide that has occurred between some in the Black and White communities.

The real blame lies on this culture, prompted and encouraged by the current administration, to treat the police like the enemy. Yes, there are problems, but that has come about because the police must now consider everyone on the street a potential adversary. Obama has essentially put targets on the backs of policemen and women. So sad. This baby now has no mother because some scumbag chose not to obey the laws of the land and felt empowered by the president to shoot a cop.

Blackspeak–The First Lady can be an advocate for healthy eating and not push garbage onto the school kids (by what authority, by the way). This workout video is not complimentary to either her status as First Lady nor to her personally. I kinda like my President and First Lady to be “Imperial.” I’m not ready for GI Jane in the White House.

I don’t think it’s becoming for the First Lady to be filming a workout video like this. It looks like she’s training for the next Rocky movie. Seriously!

There is a lucrative market out there for Christian themed programming. Good literature and programming doesn’t have to be full of sex, cursing, and gratuitous violence.
Truth–I agree wholeheartedly. Christians must stand against these attempts by Hollywood to pull them into sexually explicit, occultic, or violent themed programs. I began watching a miniseries a while back called Manhattan which was promoted as a story about the physicists and their families who developed the atom bomb. The majority of the storyline revolved around a lesbian relationship between two of the wives and frequent sexual encounters between various other characters. What little time was left was a token attempt to portray the building of the atomic bomb. A total waste of time. We, as Christians, must censor our own viewing and reading habits. 1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

Just looking at the data from this denomination indicates that men in the church are not taking leadership roles. God has decreed that the man is to be the spiritual head of the household. I don’t think that means women can’t be deacons and elders, but I do believe the majority should be men if they are following the Biblical mandate. This carries over into families as well. Many men have either separated from their families or have relegated the wife to be the spiritual/authoritative head of the family. A loving Christian family should have both parents attending and active in the church. If the father isn’t present, then of course, the mother assumes that role. If women take complete charge in the church, the men are likely to stay home and pursue other interests.
