    agreed. sad times for this country, indeed.

    on another note, your words have an underlacing of pride, joy. you are too busy giving joy the glory instead of Jesus.

    perhaps children would allow you to focus more on Him and less on you… but it seems that you’ve rationalized every logical reason not to have any. but children are a blessing from the Lord… His words, not mine.

    believe it or not, your life is not about you. what can you do to be an authentic, active Christ follower? that’s what counts…

  2. Joy

    I’m sorry, but how to you get “underlacing of pride” from the statement,”This is insane. What country are we living in”? For that matter, where on this site do I talk about either my religious beliefs or my views on children? “It seems that you’ve rationalized every logical reason not to have any [children]”–really, where? Let’s see the link where I discuss this in any way.

    For that matter, do I know you? Then where exactly do you get off making such personal judgments about me and my life? If you were responding to something I had actually said, these remarks–while still off-base and insulting–would at least make some sense. As it is, they are beyond absurd.

    Normally I would just delete a comment like this, but it angers me when people use God and Jesus as an excuse to condemn others that they don’t even know based on information they don’t even have. That is the kind of thing that drives people away from the church.

    Even assuming that you are right and there is an “underlacing of pride” in whatever it is I wrote that made you think that, your response doesn’t exactly reek of humility. In fact, it strikes me as rather hypocritical to write such a self-righteous judgment of someone else’s pride, especially if you are basing it on a sentence you read on a blog. It reminds me of this scripture from the Bible, Matthew 7:3-5. Jesus is speaking:

    3“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

    Thanks for the kind words first thing in the morning…
