And doesn't it make sense in this day of evil? For Satan and his minions to manipulate the power of words to promote abominations against the power of the Word...
Rom. 8:19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
Rom. 8:28 God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
They are still pond scum....
Forgive me Lord, that is name calling and is is beneath Your people to stoop to the level of this world. Sometimes Lord I simply cannot seem to keep my thoughts inside my head though. In Jesus' name, amen.
New International Version (©1984)
After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this."
Sometimes Wisconsin Public Radio plays classical music and that's the only reason why it gets its own preset button in my car. I turned it on yesterday and someone was talking about a man with pedophilic behavior which was apparently caused by a tumor. They tried to remove it and for a while his behavior was normal. However, the tumor grew back and the man began having pedophilic thoughts and feelings again. They removed the tumor a second time and, according to the man, the thoughts went away. The host then went on to question the amount of responsibility criminals have and what it means for our legal system. At this point I changed the station. Now, it certainly is possible for a tumor to influence our thoughts. During brain surgery the surgeon can push on certain parts of your brain and you might hear music or smell certain things. However, I truly believe that these incidents are few and far between. Society loves to place the blame for their problems on anyone or anything besides themselves. "I can't help being an alcoholic! I was born this way!" "I can't help being a drug addict! I have an illness!" "I can't help being a pedophile! The devil made me do it!" Unless there's an actual physical cause for abnormal behavior, such as a tumor or mental illness, your behavior is entirely up to you.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
In the event of darkness, depression, sadness, or loneliness, your Bible can be used as a flotation device.
I agree with BarbT!!!
As a grandparent I can only say if anyone of them would touch my grandchildren, I wouldn't be responsible for my actions...You worry about Iran, N.Korea, Syria etc? You'd best be worried about me... because someone is going to get a WW3 can of ____________(fill in the blanks).
I will not take lightly this pedophile agenda. It's no different than the beginning of homosexuality Started out as small groups and became so popular it's cause is all over our TV, ads, you name it. All of it started with a few and ballooned up to MANY.
It is ALL part and parcel of evil as one person already said -calling evil good and good evil...
New King James Version (NKJV)
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[a] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
As we approach our Savior's return, ALL forms of evil will become the "norm"-God help us!
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you! Ps 122:6
This makes me boil with anger. I know we are to have compassion for the lost, but I have a really hard time feeling anything but loathing for these vile predators. They care nothing about the children they abuse. As far as the so called experts who claim that pedophilia is harmless, I doubt the victims of Jerry Sandusky would agree.
