Re: Does black privilege exist?

I would like to think we are all adult and mature enough to discuss all nature of topics and use that same measure of maturity to do so in a way that doesn’t adversely harm the message of Christ.
Differences of opinion help us grow, creating division shuts down conversation and shuns people out.

Re: N.Y. adopts law allowing abortion up to nine months

Thanks Byblos, I appreciate the links. I am familiar with the Natural Law Theory and think it’s a sound philosophy but I’ve always been quite alarmed how people use that for their own spiritual shortcomings. In regards to suicide and the hypocrisy of capital punshiment. People take a “theory” or phi...

Re: N.Y. adopts law allowing abortion up to nine months

I think the nuances of such laws are relevant. Do I think third trimester abortions are ethical, no I don't. The mere suggestion is confronting. But when I read the parameters of the bill, from a medical perspective I understood a little more. "when the mother’s life was in danger or the fetus was ...

Re: Does black privilege exist?

I have to add that the mere premise of this thread “Does Black priveldge exist” is ugly. It irks me on so many levels especially considering the opening argument does nothing but highlight why it doesn’t. This a Christian board, not a platform for damaging ideology. Especially considering it came fr...

Re: Does black privilege exist?

Privilege exists on the notion that it's acquired by birthright, race, wealth and social position. It's inherently not a bad thing because we can't choose to what advantage we are born. But we can have the sense of good character to recognise when it has been randomly allocated to us. That boils dow...

Re: Remembering...

I've watched that speech so many times and it never fails to hit me right in heart. I was about 8 when I first heard it, by that time Martin Luther King Jr was long passed. I was bored on the weekend, trying to escape cricket or some other sport on Australian TV when I came across a documentary abou...

Re: Animal sacrifice at the temple has begun

Interesting videos......thanks Stu I was quite proactive a couple of years ago speaking out against the madness I saw in how some Christians and churches were trying to usher in the second coming of Christ by funding and welcoming the rebuilding of the temple. It frustrated and angered me to some ex...
