A Scientist Who Questions Global Warming

All real scientists believe that “Global Warming” is occurring. Right? Nope.

Dr. Tim Coleman is a Birmingham Meteorologist, with a PhD degree in atmospheric science. This is an article of his from the news weather blog. I can not even pretend that I understood all the article and the charts and graphs but I did find the information interesting and contrary to the typical “Global Warming” hype.

Global warming – A review

… Many climate models, similar in some ways to numerical weather prediction models like the GFS, are run to predict the future climate and its effects on rainfall patterns, local temperatures, and even biological cycles. However, we know how inaccurate our weather prediction models are at times! And, IPCC model-based temperature projections from 2000-2009 are apparently wrong. …

Also, as pointed out by Alabama State Climatologist John Christy in his response to EPA assertions (for his report, click here.), running the IPCC models for the past 30 years shows that they greatly overpredict warming. Christy states “the models overstate the warming that has occurred. The clear implication of this result is that the models have an assumed sensitivity to CO2 that the real world does not.” Christy points out that the big model weakness is cloud cover. Climate models indicate that increasing CO2 causes a decrease in clouds, further warming the earth in a positive feedback. Actually, Roy Spencer of UAH has found that warming the earth increases clouds, so the earth has its own “thermostat” to cool things down if it warms. …

Encouraging But Sad

I have notice some rather encouraging news lately from secular media sources. I posted about one Feminism Has Made Women Unhappy where I pointed out feminist are beginning to admit that women are more unhappy than ever. They aren’t ready to give up yet, but they are actually talking about it.

Def.Con. posted about an article in the UK in Working moms. The mother realizes that she was in denial that working and being a mom has downsides and has affected her children. The saddest part of the article is that her oldest daughter still doesn’t see the problems with her mother having worked and missed out on large parts of her life.

Then the news had a comment on the headlines from Jon Gosselin yesterday. Now I’ll admit I don’t know much about him but it seems he has eight children and his family is on TV somewhere. The quote from Gosselin is interesting:

“I really have to be a father here. I can’t be a kid anymore,” he continued. “I have to be a man.”

He really said that? Our young men are deciding to grow up!?! The sad part is that it took divorce proceeding to wake him up.

To me this seems to be encouraging news that the World is getting tired of spinning around in circles pretending they are having fun.

But the really sad news ….

When discussing the problems of feminism, mothers being home with their children and divorce guess who is the most adamantly argumentative.

Christian women!

Cries of Christian “liberty” and “freedom” in Christ abound.

“But the Lord knows my heart.”

“Being home makes me unhappy, I’m a better mother when I’m not home all the time.”

For some strange reason the church seems to lag behind the world by about 10 years. So maybe in ten years more Christian women will begin to see the problems also.

Mothering – It’s a Sacrifice, but Worth It!

What are you sacrificing for?

Most people are sacrificing for something every day, but is it worth it?

Are you working hard to get enough money to buy a nicer home?

Are you working overtime for that hoped for vacation over the holidays?

That great promotion that will require travel?

Whom are you sacrificing for?

For yourself? Or for others?

Shouldn’t your sacrifice be for others?

For God.

Romans 12:1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. ESV

Hebrews 13:15 Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name. ESV

For other believers.

Philippians 4:18 I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. ESV

Those in need.

Luke 10:33-35
33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion.
34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
35 And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’
ESV

Her family.

Proverbs 31:10-31

 10 An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.
14 She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar.
15 She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens.
16 She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
17 She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night.
19 She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.
20 She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes bed coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant.
25 Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
27 She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her
:
29 “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.
ESV

The Proverbs 31 Wife is epitomized by self-sacrifice for her family, others and her Lord.

Mothers don’t offer up your children to the idol of self –

Self-Fulfillment

Self-Discovery

Selfish Ambition

Self Absorption

Self Preservation

Self Centered

Selfish

Self Esteem

Self-Advancement

Self Indulgent

Self Reliance

Self Willed

Self Indulgence

Self Worth

Ezekiel 23:39 For when they had slaughtered their children in sacrifice to their idols, on the same day they came into my sanctuary to profane it. ESV

He must increase

Parenting is not like any other occupation in the whole world. The best parts are in the beginning, and if you miss it then, you can’t grab it back. No matter how you may mourn when they are gone and don’t remember to call, you can’t relive the days when their eyes were big and their hair was downy and soft.

My Husband Wants Me to Work

This is a continuation of I Can’t Be a “Keeper At Home” Because …

3. My Husband Wants Me to Work

This is a very common response to a wife’s need to stay home to raise the children and care for her family. It isn’t very surprising either considering how children have been taught through the public school and through society.

Men and women have been indoctrinated into believing that “real” women have careers and jobs. No respect was given to women who stayed home and took care of their family.

Whom did you study in school?

• Queen Elizabeth I

• Florence Nightingale

• Marie Curie

• Amelia Earhart

• Rosa Parks

• Indira Gandhi

Did you study about any mothers and women who gave their life to care for their family and children?

The only one I remember is a short study on American travel out west in covered wagons. We read Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder from the set The Complete Little House on The Prairie. Now in this set of books Ma Ingalls stays home and tends her family and children while still working hard to survive life in the wild west.

But everyone was encouraged to pity Ma Ingalls because she seemed to have no say in where they lived, worked hard at home and never had anything except “new material to make a dress.” The general consensus was that aren’t we glad things aren’t like that now.

So the point is that most men today have been taught from an early age that women are to work in order to live fulfilling, productive lives. Very few men had mothers who were home each day with them. The few men that did have mothers who didn’t work often had a mother who was gone all day doing her “volunteer” activities and other things such that technically she wasn’t home either.

Very, very few of us grew up with mothers that were home because they felt that was their God given direction for their families. Caring for homes and children very rarely got the attention and devotion that a career would get.

So the first thing to prayerfully discuss is why your husband wants you to work.

Is it because:

That is just what he is used to?

His mother worked?

He does not feel he makes enough income?

Fear of losing his job?

Lack of trust in God’s providence?

Feels that a wife being home is a lazy job?

His mother did not work but she was out and about serving everyone but her family?

Has no appreciation for the work involved in running a home and caring for children?

Does not believe that the Lord gives any instructions in this matter?

Has he prayed about the issue himself?

The key is to communicate and share both of your concerns. Once you have a better understanding of your husband’s reasons you can begin to answer his concerns. There is plenty of information available to support the financial, relational and spiritual reasons for a wife and mother to have her family as her career.

Granted all of this will be much more difficult if you have a unbelieving husband but prayer and an understanding, kind demeanor will go far.

But it often takes time to remove our ingrained teaching from childhood. So many of us or even our parents were influenced by the society that taught us all that women should be doing it all:

I can bring home the bacon
Fry it up in a pan …

Training our Daughters to be Hypocrites

When I was growing up women and girls were taught that they can and should do anything a man could do. Society had just previously been enslaving women to be servants and “baby machines” while men did what they wanted, but now we women were free.

Yeah, right! Free to be the slaves of an employer instead of serving those we love at home.

The expression used for a woman who choose to stay home with her children was “barefoot and pregnant” and yes that was intended to taint the idea of being a stay at home wife and mother.

Even those women who still desired to be stay at home wives and mothers were strongly encouraged to get a college education and career first, just in case they needed “something to fall back on.”

The Hypocrisy of Feminism (Sorry post no longer exists)

 

When I actually do tell people what I’ll be doing, I feel the awkward silence. If they know me well, they’ll launch into the, “Isn’t that wasting your talent?” Well, is it? Is it wasting my talent if I put it to use efficiently operating a household, working out of love for my husband and children? Is it a waste if I see the efforts of my hard work benefiting those that I love most? Or would it be better if I poured out the best hours of my day for people I don’t know?

I find it especially ironic that the people who shout about how boring, repetitive,and stifling staying at home is, are the same people that would praise the woman who goes to work in an office, confined in a cubicle doing data entry all day. I worked for two summers in an office, and let me tell you the work is REPETITIVE. It’s not just offices either–factory workers, grocery store clerks, bus drivers–you name it, chances are it’s repetitive work. That’s just the way an industrialized society works: we practice division of labor in order to do things more efficiently. The fact that working at home is repetitive says absolutely nothing about its value!

More Femininist Hypocrisy (Sorry post no longer exists)

How come people are extremely skeptical that a mother can teach her five children at home all at once, yet they put all faith in one teacher being able to simultaneously control and educate 30 unrelated and diverse children in the public school system? It is too much of an undertaking for that “poor” mother, yet no one questions the standard classroom size of the public school system?

How come being a nanny is a perfectly fine job for a woman, but being a mother (even though the jobs are basically the same) is not fulfilling and a waste of talent?

I thought of this a few days ago, when a young woman was telling my family how wonderful it was to get to stay home and watch her sister’s children as their nanny. She talked of the peace, calm, and utter joy she had being at home with the little one, and this made me wonder why it’s okay to watch children and enjoy it, as long as it isn’t their own mother.

Very thought provoking!

We Can’t Afford My Being Home

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. ESV

“Sixteen out of 38 of Christ’s parables deal with money;

more is said in the New Testament about money

than Heaven and Hell combined;

five times more is said about money than prayer;

and while there are 500-plus verses on both prayer and faith,

there are over 2,000 verses dealing with money and possessions.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

John MacArthur, Jr.


Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” ESV

1 Timothy 6:6-10

6 Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment,
7 for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.
8 But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.
9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.
10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
ESV


The KJV says: “pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”


What sorrows will be yours if working for the extra car, that vacation, the college education or the extra curricular activities takes the place of being a “Keeper at Home”?

Now many will say that they are not working for the extras but for the basics. That the husband’s income is not enough.

Are you sure that everything that the money is being spent on is a true need or is it a perceived need?


Millions call themselves by His Name, it is true, and pay some token of respect to Him, but a simple test will show how little He is really honored among them. Let the average man be put to the proof on the question of who or what is above, and his true choice between God and money, between God and man, between God and personal ambition, God and self, God and human love, and God will take second place every time. However the man may protest the proof is in the choices he makes day after day throughout his life.”

Tozer

You see, income is not the problem. Spending more than one’s income is the problem. So reducing living expenses is the first step to finding money you never knew you had.”

Ron Blue, Master Your Money, a Christian Financial Counseling service


Hebrews 13:5-6

5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
6 So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”

I Can’t Be a “Keeper At Home” Because …

What are the reasons you give for not being a “keeper at home”?

Have you ever listed them out and checked the Scripture for the answers?

I can’t be a “Keeper at Home” because …

1. We can’t afford it.

2. My husband doesn’t make enough money.

3. My husband wants me to work.

4. My kids would drive me crazy.

5. My children learn alot from their daycare.

6. I worked hard for my degree.

7. I am good at what I do.

8. What would I have to talk about but kids?

9. We could never have a vacation if I didn’t work.

10. I work so my children can attend a good Christian school.

11. What about college for my kids?

12. I don’t like feeling like I’m just a housewife.

13. We would have to move to a smaller house.

What other reasons have you given or heard others give?

Read back over that list and notice the focus.

The focus is on ourselves.

Where should a Christian’s first focus be?

Should it not be on Christ?

What if we turned the focus around? I provided you the first verse but see if you can find verses that apply to each situation.

I can be a “keeper at home” because …

1. The Lord promises to provide for all our needs.

Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. ESV

2. The Lord knows how much money my husband needs.

3. Is the Lord working to teach your Christian husband to trust in Him instead of himself?

4. Have you raised your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord? Will their childish disobedience today lead to rejecting the obedience to the Lord later?

5. My children learn alot from their daycare that is against the Lord’s teaching. My children were given to me as blessings from the Lord and I am perfectly able to teach them what they need with the Lord’s help.

6. I worked hard for my degree, but do I work as hard at obeying the Lord? Is this a pride issue?

7. I am good at what I do, but maybe I desire the accolades of men more than of the Lord.

8. What would I have to talk about but kids? Maybe if I spent more serious time in Bible study I can share about what the Lord is teaching me.

9. We could never have a vacation if I didn’t work. Are vacations a requirement? What if we got funding for a mission trip instead?

10. I work so my children can attend a good Christian school. But what about homeschooling which is much cheaper and lacks many negatives that come from large groups of foolish children being together with little supervision.

11. What about college for my kids? Am I sure college is God’s will for my children? If it is, can not God provide for it?

12. I don’t like feeling like I’m just a housewife. But then I’m not “just” a housewife. I am a child of the King, who is “keeping His Home” and raising the blessings He gave me to glorify the Lord.

13. We would have to move to a smaller house. Yet maybe that would be God’s will for us. We would have less expenses. We wouldn’t have to worry about “keeping up with the Jones.” We wouldn’t have the fees associated with the neighborhood covenants.

Can you think of more faulty thinking on your part?

We have faulty thinking that covers every area of our lives.

What are your faulty thinking traps that you fall into?

Now I’ll duck before the rock throwing begins 🙂

Raising Feminists

Are We Raising Unhappy Narcissist Feminists? by Kevin Swanson

Kevin Swanson has a radio show that he uses to discuss issues affecting Christians in America.

Are you raising a leech’s daughter or a daughter precious in the sight of the Lord.

Proverbs 30:15 The leech has two daughters; “Give” and “Give,” they cry. ESV

1 Peter 3:3-4
3 Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair, the wearing of gold, or the putting on of clothing—
4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious

That the Word of God be not Blasphemed

Titus 2:1-6
1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded
. KJV

Why is it in Titus 2:1-5 there are instructions for the older men, older women, young women and the young men but only the young women are warned specifically about their behavior blaspheming God?

Did anyone else notice that?

After reading and pondering that for a while I’ve determined that it is because the young women are in an area of more influence than any of the others. Young women are training the future generations and their teaching might last for three to four generations whether it is good or bad. Then guess what, the young women very quickly become older women responsible for teaching other young women. It is a very important cycle according to God’s Word.

Numbers 14:18 ‘The Lord is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, forgiving iniquity and transgression, but he will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, to the third and the fourth generation.‘ ESV

Deuteronomy 5:9-10
9 You shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
10 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
ESV

Our disobedience does not only affect our generation of children but the third and fourth generations of our children. But our obedience may affect thousands or thousands of generations.

So is the price of disobedience worth it?

John MacArthur

After spending the majority of his sermon discussing Feminism and its effects on women and society in general, MacArthur points out that feminism, homosexuality, and family breakdown is leading us to Romans 1:18-32 yet the church is going right along with it. Notice this sermon was done in 1997! Just add 12 more years to the equation.

“The Character of a Healthy Church” Part 3 Younger Women Part 1 Titus 2:4-5

Undiscerning Christians falling victim to these hellish heresies, the destruction is not restrained by the church, the church has joined it.

There is no doubt about what a woman’s role is, there’s no doubt what a man’s role is. Look at our text again. What has God designed for a woman? Verse 4, “To love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands that the Word of God may not be dishonored.” That’s very clear.

You can get in a lot of trouble by suggesting that kind of stuff. Try standing up in this culture and saying, “Women, you’re commanded to love your husband and to love your children and to work at home and to be subject to your husband.” You’ll get screamed down. I mean, you can be in deep trouble just reading that let alone commenting on it.

It’s been amazing since people knew I was approaching this text, they’ve been telling me, “What are you going to say about this? This is going to be very controversial. Boy, we can’t wait till these tapes come out. What’s going to happen then?” Well just to mitigate that a little bit, I’ve said what I’ve said, this morning, so that if you get upset you know whose side you’re on. (Applause) God has laid out His standards. They’re not negotiable. And I’ll tell you this, if the church doesn’t wake up soon and obey the Word of God, all is lost. We don’t need to fall victim to this stuff. You don’t need a Master’s Degree to figure out what it means to love your husband, love your children, and work at home. How hard is that? By the way, there are no qualifiers there, no caveats, no footnotes. It’s just what it says. Go home, submit to your husband, have children, raise them in godliness, take care of your house. And that’s what older women are to teach younger women, they’re to teach it not only with their mouth, they’re to teach it with their life.

I’m telling you, what I said a few weeks ago now is becoming so vividly true. We are living in Romans 1, aren’t we? What’s wrong with America? God’s wrath is wrong with America. God’s let us go and we’re plunging down the path and the evidence of it is this reversal of sexual roles that Paul talked about in Romans chapter 1 verse 26.

“The Character of a Healthy Church” Part 4 Titus 2:3-5 by John MacArthur

In our culture what is being said in these verses to young women is the very opposite of what young women are being taught. Young women today are being taught to love whoever they want, farm their children out to somebody else, don’t worry about being sensible, do whatever pleases you. Don’t worry about being pure, fulfill your physical and lustful desires. Don’t work at home, work outside the home. Don’t worry about being kind, you do whatever you want. You grab your moment in the sun. Take care of you, not somebody else. And by all means, don’t be subject to your own husband.

When this comes into the church it therefore dishonors the Word of God. I mean, even an unbeliever can read those verses. The most unschooled non-believer can read that the Word of God says young women are to love their husbands, love their children, be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, and subject to their own husbands. And if he can read the Bible and look at the church, he can make a very simple conclusion…you Christians say you believe the Bible, why don’t your women live like this? You see, it brings discredit on the Scripture to say we affirm the Scripture but we live however we like. Or worse, we live however the culture being basically controlled by Satan, the prince of the power of the air, dictates us to live.

But young women have always needed instruction, just like young men and older women and older men do. And so here the Word of God is at stake…the honor of the Scripture and the glory of God and the silencing of the opponents of the gospel. In other words, this simple set of commands has immense implications, has far-reaching ramifications for the Kingdom. If you love Christ, if you seek to honor God, if you want to lift up and exalt the Word, if you want to silence the critics, you will be eager to obey these commands. If you want to do what the society says, if you want to fulfill your own fleshly desire, you will disobey them. Jesus said it simply and concisely in the summary statement, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” And here are some of His commandments given to us by the Holy Spirit through the pen of the Apostle Paul.

And then he says, “Workers at home.” And here’s the one that gets all the heat nowadays because women don’t want to work at home. Frankly, they’re not at all interested in working at home if they can help it. Forty-five percent of the American work force is women. Megatrends 2000 says in the past 20 years US women have taken two-thirds of the millions of new jobs and that will continue. By the way, that directly contributes to continued male unemployment in the inner city, according to Harvard University report done by a man named Harris because people will hire a woman before they’ll hire a male black, sometimes even a Hispanic black male, a Hispanic male rather, or a black male. And so what happens is two our three new jobs are taken by women because they’d rather deal with women than men and that contributes to a rise in unemployment of the men. Fifty-six percent, says Megatrends, fifty-six percent of mothers with children under six work outside the home. Seventy-three percent of mothers with children six to 17 work outside the home. By the year 2000, that’s in six years or so, seven years, ninety percent of women between 16 and 65 will be at work outside the home. Nobody will be home…nobody.

Women don’t want to be workers at home. Why? Because Satan sells the system on that. Why? Because it’s anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Bible and it devastates the testimony of the church. The word “workers at home,” one word in the Greek, oikourgos, from two root words, ergon, which means work, and oikos which means house. It’s simply the sphere of a woman’s life is her home, that’s her domain. It doesn’t mean she has to be there 24 hours a day and can never leave. What…I’m not saying that because you don’t want to lock her up with soap operas either, but what it does mean is that is the sphere of her life. That is her domain. It is not that she is simply to be home, but that the home is her sphere. The woman in Proverbs 31 left home when she needed to to buy a field, she left home to prepare that field, she left home and went afar to find things that would help the family. The woman did what she needed to do but the focus of everything was the home. And that’s where she poured her life and she got up early and she went to bed late for the sake of the home. She is to be a home keeper, that’s the sphere of her responsibility, that’s her place of employment, that’s where she should pour her life. For a mother to get a job outside the home and send the children to some kind of daycare place is to shirk her God-given responsibility. It also is failure to understand that her husband is to be the provider, as Ephesians 5 makes very clear. Even if you wanted to work outside the home to pay for your children to go to a Christian school, you made a big mistake. Better that you should stay in the home and raise your own children to be godly then to pass it on to somebody else.

Why do they [feminist] care? You tell me, why does some feminist woman care whether you’re a homemaker? Why does she care? I’ll tell you why, because her agenda isn’t her agenda. It’s the agenda of the enemy, it is an anti-God agenda intended to destroy the credibility of the church because if you can get women who claim to be Christians to abandon the home, then you can pick up a Bible and stick it in their face and say, “You say you believe this? I don’t think so. And therefore it must not be believable because you know what it says and you’re not interested in believing it and you claim to be a Christian.” The agenda is…they don’t care…they don’t know what they’re doing but they don’t care really whether you work, Satan cares to discredit the Bible, that’s the issue. That’s the level of the attack. See it for what it is and don’t become victimized.

John MacArthur © 1997 Grace to You http://www.biblebb.com/files/MAC/56-15.HTM or http://www.gty.org/Resources/Sermons/56-15

Did you notice how feminism is encouraging women to blaspheme God’s Word?

It’s the agenda of the enemy, it is an anti-God agenda intended to destroy the credibility of the church because if you can get women who claim to be Christians to abandon the home, then you can pick up a Bible and stick it in their face and say, “You say you believe this? I don’t think so. And therefore it must not be believable because you know what it says and you’re not interested in believing it and you claim to be a Christian.”
