Another Coal for the Fire

I’m a pretty regular reader of this blog.

He wrote this post the other day pertaining to the necessity of bearing children, specifically within American society. Even more specifically relating to scripturally unsound reasoning within the general Church that necessitates child bearing.

I agree with him.

Of course you must, out of necessity, read the article he links to as well as the comments pertaining to that article.

Any thoughts?

  1. good or bad children?

    if you want to get results you need to do more praying..

    (James 5:16 KJV) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

    Me an undeniable chief of sinners now too I have to admit I have rightfully been depressed to listen to the mostly unanswered prayer requests that so many poferesoffessing Christians pray because it is too obvious to me they have a false concept of God, who He is , what his Duties, and His conditions for prayer being answered firstly. And When I see the speed dialing prayer many Christians use, and/or see their lack of Bible verses as well now on the so called Christians internet sites know something is wrong spiritually with them..

    And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

    (Luke 18:9 KJV) And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. 13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

    (2 Chr 7:14 KJV) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    (John 15:7 KJV) If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

    (Mark 8:38 KJV) Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

    (Rom 1:16 KJV) For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    I was in a very looking church for the first time, and I could not help but notice how very few people were in it even though it was located in a big city, in the heart of residential area now too and I could not help but wonder why it was so. Shortly in the middle of the service the pastor had announced that Wednesday prayer meeting had been cancelled so people could spend more time with their families, and it became to me quite apparent why thus church was dying and going to hell now too..

  2. I agree with your commentary on lack of prayer in the average Christian life. Though I think it would be safe for you and I to admit, I know I do, that it is a struggle for every Christian.

    However, I’m not quite sure I understand how the rest of your comment relates to the post? Mind your judgment re: who is being sent to hell. [Matt 7:1-5]
