When someone is confessing that they want to stop watching porn and they are depressed....and they add "but it's not gross porn just a man or women having sex"...and if you tell them, repent or perish, some "Christians" will say you are being a "troll" or "judgmental". That is not true. Jesus spoke strongly against sin in Matthew 5:27-30 and many will call Jesus Lord and not give up their sins, but rather justify sins and mask their sins, in order to turn grace into a license to sin. Heresy
@KW I know we're supposed to follow Mt. 5:43-44 but sometimes It. Is. Really. Hard! I'm sorry for the person who did this, unless they choose to walk with Jesus they have a rough eternity ahead of them...and, of course, I feel bad for you!
Were We Not Warned?
The Monarchs warned us
and still, we didn’t listen
Honey bees, too, whispered us
but still, we didn’t listen
the bats, the flowers, the trees
all of these told us, too,
and still, we wouldn’t listen
How could we not notice
the flocks of birds, disappearing?
Or pay attention to nights of flight
we were no longer hearing?
The Earth, it brought us closer,
and even now, taking notice,
still, we aren’t listening

@KW Good insight. I have often thought about those who believe the counterfeit (diluted) gospel, intended only for their "itching ears" (2Tim.4:3)...and those who preach it :(.

The Bible deserves a close reading.
This would be laughable, were it not typical of government:
> In issuing a new 10-year plan in March to overhaul the service, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and chair of the Postal Service board of governors Ron Bloom acknowledged that the post office is not meeting its own service standards, and has not been for several years. Part of the solution, they say, is to change the standard, so mail can take longer: “Our plan is to modify existing service standards for First-Class Mail letters and flats from a current 1- to 3-day service standard within the continental United States to a one-to-five-day service standard.”
Translation: Since we can't do it, we'll just adjust our standards downward.

@KW Of course we've had access to this information for nearly the entire course of the disease (in spite of the MSM and MSSM doing their best to censor it), and see that so far the politics of it have been winning out over science, as so many of us are forced to do what is worst for us - at least when out in public - and we know it, thanks to tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of experts such as this doctor sharing their knowledge. There is not much that is more frustrating than that. If people want to follow the crowd that's fine...but forcing the rest of us to do what we know is wrong for our own health...that's the nightmare, not a virus with a low death rate.
Just an Appalachian Christian that keeps bees and loves Jesus.
The Bible is all we need and Psalm 69:6 keeps me on point........and I also love Russian Literature
