Zoey Problem - Do we hate pregnancy or inappropriate acts before marriage?

  1. True, Techi, but have you noticed today how pushy the girls are towards boys? They are different today and if you ask a teenage boy, he will most likely admit that they have been "approached" by a girl.

    Of course the boys need to be held accountable but it is obviously not as noticable as it is for a girl. When she becomes pregnant, everyone knows, but they know, and you wonder if they don't feel guilty about it. It's tough out there for our teens and preteens today, but it is up to the parents to talk with them about it and help them make decisions before they fall into it. It's so different and easy to have sex today. Most kids come home to an empty house and the temptations are there to invite their friends in. And then the schools make it even easier. And then the government makes it easier too. I work at Early Head Start and when one 17-year old student gets pregnant, and tells her friends about how easy it is to get free childcare and get on Title 19, it helps kids to not worry so much about getting pregnant if you want to be active sexually. If you don't want to take the van that goes out once a week to Planned Parenthood for an abortion, then you can go ahead with the pregnancy and get all the help monetarily you may need. Who needs parents anyway! :eek: Our government will take care of our young.
     
  2. I forget what state it's in, but in attempts to reduce dumpster babies, the state passed legislature allowing the 'no questions asked' drop-off of their child at a hospital. Problem was they used the word child instead of infant. Unfortunately 'child' means up till age 19. I believe there was someone who just dropped of a family of eight-with teens.
     
  3. John 8


    1But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2At dawn he appeared again in the temple courts, where all the people gathered around him, and he sat down to teach them. 3The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. 5In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?" 6They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.
    But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. 7When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." 8Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.
    9At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. 10Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" 11"No one, sir," she said.
    "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared. "Go now and leave your life of sin."

    That shows how great the mercy God has on us. God does have a holy hatred for sin though, and so should we. We should love the sinner and point them to Christ for forgiveness.

    "For I hate divorce," says the LORD, the God of Israel, "and him who covers his garment with wrong," says the LORD of hosts. "So take heed to your spirit, that you do not deal treacherously." Malachi 2:16

    If God hates divorce, what does he think of murdered little ones who's blood cries out to him from the ground?

    This is a passage that struck me one day:

    Proverbs 24:11-12
    11 Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
    And those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.
    12 If you say, "See, we did not know this,"
    Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts?
    And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
    And will He not render to man according to his work?

    God has a holy hatred for sin and so should we. We're all sinners, those that are in Christ are given His righteousness as a garment. Yet we should hate sin but love the person. The bible makes it clear that we should not judge those outside of the body of Christ; but we are to judge those inside the church who live in unrepentant sin, even remove them in some cases. And it makes a distinction between judging (with Godly discernment) and judging (condemning with a sentence).
     
  4. True...you have a point.....over here the finance side has got silly...if you are single and unemplyed you get a lump sum of about £1000 from the goverment to help...its not exactly discruraging....its only after the child is born they realise it cose way over that much. and yes...if more parents could at as parents to their teens it would help. But it would also help if the boys (particularly if they were in church ) were also made to feel as the girls protrayed were and shared the guilt.
     
  5. Crosses representing the 3,560 U.S. Daily abortions.
    That's 1,299,400 per United States year.
    Imagine a baby in place of each cross.
    God Bless all brothers and sisters in Christ.
