  1. I really enjoyed your post until the last three words! What does it mean~true to yourself? Couldn't people take that and say that anything they want to do is okay and morally good because after all they are being true to themselves? I really don't know what that means?! Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Cor. 6:18- I realize not everyone believes that God's glory is the ultimate motivator, but that is what we teach our children. And I agree with what Scarlett said earlier. I will not confuse my children. "Glorify God in all things. But if you choose to not glorify Him in this one area, here's some birth control". :confused1:
  2. I disagree. I hear more "You're a slut" talk in p.s, FB and pop culture than anywhere else. I have heard about the chewed gum (or licked Oreos) thing in church youth settings (I'm not sold on it), but I believe it is used to get the one who is thinking of acting married though single to think twice before hooking up. In other words, "Why make yourself less desirable"~not "Don't ever marry someone who has had premarital sex because he/she is worthless." I don't think it is the best way to persuade a young person. Some things done by people ARE shameful, but that doesn't mean the person should be shamed. There is a difference. And people are not animals. And I am surprised how many parents buy birth control for their children. If a "child" is old enough to become a mom or dad, he/she is old enough to buy her own personal items.
  3. Karen, just because it's summer doesn't mean you can kill kittens!
  4. So you were trying to gain weight~or lose it?
  5. Some people have been helped by Don't Waste Your Life
  6. Just found this site! http://www.specialtybottle.com/swingtopbottlesmi.aspx Thanks, everyone, for your ideas.
  7. I like it fine w/o any flavorings, but I'm looking for ideas. Also, do you use black or green tea?
  8. $1,000? What was the roof made of? GOLD?! Wow. Love the salad bar idea! We used hairy vetch as a cover crop in the garden over winter. They LOVE it.
  9. I Dup, you may benefit from reading Darrow L. Miller's book Emancipating the World.
  10. Ravi Zacharias could read the phone book, and I would be interested. I just love his voice/accent. http://www.rzim.org/let-my-people-think-broadcasts/
  11. And then to others, all of life is worship, and that would mean we can't take notes anywhere! I'd be in big trouble with this memory of mine :laugh:
  12. Um . . they have a "Contact" button on their website.
  13. Okay. Just beware that an abortionist can consider the emotional health of a pregnant woman and sign a paper saying he/she believes the mother's life is in danger if she goes full term.
  14. I think if anything, this whole rotten deal just shows the arbitrariness of 24 weeks, 25 weeks, 26 weeks~or however many weeks old a child can be before she is considered too old to be terminated. If it was decided based on viability, science (and hospitals all over the world) are showing that with the right conditions, that number of weeks is falling like a rock.
  15. Wrong word, sorry. I wasn't thinking! I meant to say I don't know why PP would make any comment whatsoever about a dead baby or babies. Some people are making a stink (not talking about this thread) b/c PP did not mention the babies affected by the crimes. I don't see why they would venture there. And I'll just leave it at that. I realize you probably hold PP in much higher esteem than I do!
  16. I don't see why folks would think something should have been said by PP about botched abortions, a.k.a. living baby on the gurney? Just. let. it. go. No one is going to apologize.
  17. Don't try to figure it out. It all hinges on whether the child is wanted or unwanted. That is the sad reality.
  18. Yes. I agree. Many people will do just about anything for money. Very sad.
  19. Just like it is wrong to treat other people inhumanely because of how light or dark their skin is, it is inhuman to treat people like crock-pot meat just because they are 24 weeks old instead of 25. I didn't say anything against those girls/women who feel like they are in a desperate situation.
  20. Many people don't think there should be ways around parental consent. But YMMV.
