Re: The name of Jesus?

It’s very sad when someone thinks that we have to call out to Jesus in a certain dialect to be calling on Him. Crazy that within all the nuances of language and interpretation that anyone would think that belief could ever be reliant on specific wording and understanding if someone trusts in the sal...

Re: Christian Counselor

I can quite literally get a counselling diploma through a 12 week course online. I’m not saying there’re aren’t good or even great counsellors but training is vitally important when dealing with addictions and behaviours. If someone has a serious medical condition would they see a trained doctor or ...

Re: A new low has been reached...

I think this new low is totally devoid of class. Even within the realms of sordid affairs and Presidential scandal. Despite my initial laughter, it’s a pretty scandalous and unnecessary blow although with Trumps antics is it any surprise the man is suffering with little **€€ syndrome.

Re: Christian Counselor

I just want to add that if you’re dealing with personal hurdles I would recommend a trained professional like a psychologist and not a Christian counselor who may be highly tainted with personal dominational bias.

Mel,

I've noticed that you finally outgrew your "Make me a Sammich Member" status!

Congratulations on finally becoming an Esteemed Senior Member!

It's just a nice way of saying that you're old!
Oh haha in that case you ‘esteemed’ old bast*rds must be almost prehistoric 😁

Re: The truth about Abortion

I find it interesting that a woman can have the right to abort a child, as well as having the man pay child support and be more likely to get away with tricking a man into such things, like poking holes in condoms. As far as I'm aware the man has little to no say in such matters, but we're supposed...

Re: Christian Counselor

I have no one to talk to. I just need someone I can dial. Sort of like a criminal defense attorney card. I know this sounds really stupid but I am a bit worried I am going to hell. I wasn't worried before I started watching all these NDE things - and now I am. I keep watching all these NDE hell vid...

Re: Pope Nixes the Death Penalty!

You don’t need the Pope to weigh in on the death penalty when Jesus’ teachings was enough. I find it the epitome of hypocrisy when in one breathe we uphold the New Testament then when it suits fall back on the old. If we follow the tenants of the New Testament then there is no way any Christian can ...

Re: Tommy Robinson Arrested

What I see here is the media having its field day and that sad moment when independent thought is hijacked by hysteria. The Muslims are not taking over anything apart from maybe your kebab shop. But it may be halal so boycott and get unrealisticly upset over that when our practices are no more human...

Re: Homelessness being criminalized

Social justice that incorporates policies. That starts at the grass roots. Equal healthcare and education regardless of income. Government subsidised rehab. Policies that focus on extra funding for schools that are flagged as needed and the staff to facilitate it. Get to them when they’re young. Kid...

Re: Have we crossed the line yet?

Its interesting because here in Australia we have Antifa thrown around a lot but there’s no relevance to this country. I spent some time researching and yes googling lol, to understand that narrative. I want to be informed. I don’t want to be misrepresented. My consensus was it has no relevance to o...

Re: Are only men supposed to go into the military?

Rick fair call and I’m not Judging you. That was a pretty scathing response on my part and I didn’t mean it personally but it really came across that way. So I apologise. And you are right, there has been some necessary military action that only the US could have enforced which secured a better outc...

Re: Are only men supposed to go into the military?

I responded to your comment because it’s elist and bullcrap. It’s not difficult to look outside of your own box to see how that viewpoint is very narrow. I get it your American and somehow you guys are lost in your own sense of grandeur. From a foreigner, we see you as the agressor. In this century ...
