In Topic: New Name for IFBs

Yesterday, 01:14 PM

Does Westboro describe themselves as "IFB"? if so, why do they think its their place to go to other churches and demand they do things their way? I guess they've missed the fact that it isn't any of their business, that if they want to deal with them as brethren, they should do it biblically, privately initially, then, if necessary, to do it publicly, but respectfully. And if they don't consider them brethren, they should just be seeking to give them the gospel, because trying to get the lost to live according to the word of God is like trying to get a fish to live in a tree-they are not the right kind of creature yet.

Christian is also my problem. I don't want to be called a christian because I know many who call themselves christian and i would never listen to, watch, wear, or go whre they do and i do not want others to lump me with them. I am a Biblisist.

Well, and herein is the issue. Christian is a proper biblical term, why would you cease from using that? Just because someone else who doesn't act like a Christian uses the term? Saint is a proper term, but the Catholics have soiled it; Fundamentalist is a good term, but now everything evil under the sun is called fundamentalist. Time and again, we run from proper terminology to describe ourselve, because someone says "Boo".

 

So the big question is, When will we cease letting the world and the wicked define us? When will we stop running and stand our ground and take back what is ours? The wicked took the rainbow, first by the new agers, then the gays; the satanists took the goat, which is described as one of the holy animals of God; They misuse proper words and terms and twist them, and we run to something else. When will we stop running? Yes, our faith is a race, but it doesn't mean to run from the battles. I say, its time we took back what is ours by the hand of God, and stop letting the world tell us what we can and can't be.

 

That'll preach, brethren!

BAck to the topic at hand, its interesting to see that Mr. Ruckman doesn't consider abortion murder, using the creation of Adam as his proof text. The creation of Adam was significantly different from the birth of a child. First, Adam was build up from nothing, from dust, formed to a fully aduly man, the dust made flesh, but without ANY life, then, his nostrils were breathed into, and he received the spirit of life from God, a different spirit from the animals.

 

A baby conceived in the womb has life well before there is specifically breath. As well, it takes in oxygen from the mother, just not through its lungs.

A website on this issue puts it like this:

 

The unborn baby exchanges oxygen and carbon dioxide with the mother through the placenta and umbilical cord. The mother’s blood circulates through the placenta and also carries nutrients to the baby. The placenta is attached to the uterine wall and to the umbilical cord, which is attached to the baby. The mother, in effect, breathes for the baby. The mother inhales and breathes in oxygenated air, which passes through her circulatory system to the baby through the placenta and umbilical cord. Carbon dioxide returns from the baby through the umbilical cord and placenta to the mother, who exhales and removes the waste from her body.

So, while the lungs do not yet operate, it still receives oxygen, and clearly, has a living soul. It has a heartbeat very early on, as well as brain functions. Ruckman's argument that until it breathes for itself, means it isn't alive, is a fallacy, primarily of ignorance of how babies develop in the womb. And according to David, speaking apparently at the behest of the holy Ghost, the Lord knew him, even before he was knit together in his mother's womb. Jeremiah was called to preach before he was born. Sounds like God considered them people before they breathed on their own.

 

I wouldn't want to be him when he has to answer for who-knows-how many abortions are performed due to his assurance that its alright.

Mormons, Christadelphian's use the KJV.

Fortunately, some have been saved because they actually read the KJV while mormon, and found the Light of Christ there, and were saved from their darkness. BUt point taken otherwise.

Maybe we should do like the World Wildlife Foundation did when they sued the World Wrestling Federation for use of "WWF". Oh wait, we can't, because we're independent.
