I believe in the scriptures and hold true what is said in this passage, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4: 1). When one who does not know me tells me that I believe God is a ‘butcher of babies’, I tend to find this an example of a false prophet; for if you knew me, you would know otherwise.
John, I am enjoying your responses to servantwayne – you are clearly a man of faith and a student of scripture. I only wish more people would pray about scripture they read so that the Holy Spirit would enlighten them before they start taking verses out of context to ‘prove a point.’ Frankly, I don’t know what point *is* being made. Was it not our Lord who said “…It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4
Thank you for your intelligent reasoning and “rebuttals.” rowe
