1 Corinthians 13:12 King James Version (KJV)
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Different translations. Different versions. Different interpretations of the Bible. Misinterpretations. Misunderstandings. Who is right? All of them and none of them.
I think it was Ayn Rand who said
“We see the world not as it is, but as we are.”
I agree with that, and I think everyone one views the Bible the same way; not as it is, but through a lense coated with preconcieved notions, our upbringing; we often see only what we want to see when we read the Bible. I am stopping there and leaving that open ended because I want to hear your thoughts on this topic.
Thorn was born in 2012. Our co-founders Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore had learned about the issue of child sex trafficking from a documentary highlighting what was happening to children in Cambodia. They describe it as this moment where you learn something about the world that you can’t un-know. As they started learning more, they realized that it is just as prolific of a problem here in the United States as it is overseas.
Ending trafficking by educating people.
This is my story: at 8 years old I first heard God’s voice. At the age of 12, I was saved by Jesus, at Oasis of Hope church.
At the age of 14, I turned my back and walked away from everything thing I knew, everything I had been taught, and anything to do with God.
At the age of twenty, when everyone else had given up on me, Jesus hadn’t. I will never again turn away from Him.
Women already have access to the best health care. Why is it not enough? Why is it necessary to have later and later term abortions?
Here are a few better solutions:
Birth control: easily obtainable, if you can’t afford it from your doctor, there are many clinics that offer free or low cost birth control.
This is my grandson, he is not a blob of tissue, and he is not a clump of cells. Never has been. He is a precious life, from the moment of conception. My beautiful daughter, was and is, a precious life. Every life is precious. What right does anyone have to redefine whole groups of people as ‘sub-human’ and therefore able to be murdered for convenience?
Even though adoption is expensive for the family adopting, it is not expensive for the pregnant woman:
Adoption fees pay for:
This information comes from:
So the birth mother gets her hospital, food and housing paid for by the adopting family. Why aren’t more people advocating for adoption, with the same fervor that they are advocating abortion?
“For example, in 1987 Mrs. Baker James Cauthen taught English at a Chinese university. Born in China of missionary parents, she was a former missionary in China and wife of the late, longtime president of the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board. However, she served not under the auspices of a mission board, but as an individual on a mission.”
I like that she chose to work, not just rely on handouts, like Paul who continued to work as a tent maker, supporting himself while he traveled and preached.
Satanists support Planned Parenthood
Emboldened by overstated victories, and the madness of the media, the Democrat party will persecute the church with abandon. I believe we’ll see it almost immediately. The mood—the one that pleases people when Christians are harassed and blamed, is upon us. I am warning you it’s about to spike, and the mindless ferocity of it will surprise you.
Since many carnivorous animals also eat plants, is it really necessary for them to eat meat? They burn a lot of calories chasing down said meat, so it seems more efficient to eat a plant which can’t uproot itself and run away.
Speaking of plants, there are even some plants which are carnivorous. Why? Plants get their nutrients from the sun and from soil, so why did some plants decide to add meat to their diet? If the sun and soil don’t provide enough nutrients, then why aren’t all plants carnivorous?
The article says that hypercarnivores eat meat because they can’t digest plant material. If that’s true why do my housecats eat grass and other plants, not just when they are sick, but any chance they get. Knock it if you want to, but at least the Bible has an answer: carnivorous animals weren’t originally created that way.
Well they sure are well suited to it. Take an eagle for example: they are excellent hunters and efficient killers. I’ve seen videos of golden eagles killing grown wolves. Impressive.
Even so, I think this is an adaptation; eagles weren’t originally created this way during the account of creation in Genesis. Because of the fall of Adam and Eve, creation became a corrupt, destructive version of what it was before.
