Re: As A People The US has Gone Insane

And in the news recently was the case of a California woman charged with murder because her 8 month old baby was stillborn due to her mother's use of meth: https://www.foxnews.com/us/california-c ... orn-deathI If the mother had simply gone to Planned Parenthood she could have had her baby ripped t...

Re: President Trump Exalts Jesus

A stumbling and hollow recitation of a script (obviously penned by somebody other than Mr. Trump). And preposterous, given the life and character and career of the man delivering it. Christians should reflect, carefully, on how this secular messiah has really served to exalt or degrade Jesus in the ...

Re: Refugee issues

Thank you, Steve, for your time and thoughtfulness in responding. You ask how I arrived at the view that love is a personal duty. My answer was given in my post: love requires voluntary sacrifice, which, by definition, cannot be forced on others. On this point, you wrote: I think groups of people ve...

Hello - I am curious to hear other people's understandings of what love is.

Re: Refugee issues

Hello, Singalphile, What does it even mean for a law to be loving and merciful and generous? That makes little sense to me. (Just how loving is a law is supposed to be?) It makes sense to say that a law is just . Laws should be just. I may be better poised to discuss this if I have a better understa...

Re: Refugee issues

Steve - Thank you for taking the time to respond in detail. Your remarks are interesting, because we have profoundly different ways of thinking. While love is every man's responsibility, the Christian belief is that loving to the point of laying down one's life for others is not common, or even poss...

Re: Refugee issues

Hello, steve7150 - nice to see you, too There are more and less prudent ways to go about receiving refugees. Of course, we should pay attention to experiences in other nations, and we should attempt to learn from them. But America is not Europe. We have a much larger population and much more territo...

Re: Refugee issues

Hello, steve, I do not think of love, mercy, generosity, peacemaking, etc . as exclusively Christian responsibilities, or as exclusively private responsibilities. Our national community has responsibilities to love, to be merciful, to be generous, etc . These responsibilities should be priorities fo...

Refugee issues

This afternoon, I caught a portion of the radio broadcast. One discussion touched on the refugee issue. As usual, Steve's remarks were worth hearing and considering. I would like to comment on the issue, perhaps from a different tack. (Unfortunately, I was not able to listen to the entire discussion...
