DOJ: Govt. Can Force Doctors to Violate Religion - By Wesley J. Smith

DOJ: Govt. Can Force Doctors to Violate Religion - By Wesley J. Smith - National Review

This is probably the most stupid article in the name of freedom of religion that has ever been written.

Here are two reasons:

1. The author gives an example of Australia, where a doctor must perform an abortion or refer the customer to one who will. That is not a violation of a doctor's freedom of religion. He doesn't have to do the abortion. He is free not to do so. But the individual client has a right to information which the doctor must provide if he doesn't do the abortion. I see nothing wrong with the state requiring that. As long as it is legal to get an abortion in Australia, all people have an equal right to information on how to do that.

To digress, I have a personal opposition to abortion, but I can live with the concept that the state has permitted them. The alternative of state religion or churches making decisions for the state is for the state to allow what it allows separate from that influence. If enough people oppose abortion to change it, then I am concerned that those folks would not continue to seek the separation of church and state. That separation was taught by Christ, as he told us His kingdom was not of this world.

2. The author  states that people owning businesses should have the right to not include birth control in their health plans. This is absurd. The reason it it is absurd is that health plans should be based upon the rights of the individuals who benefit from the plans. The plans should be all the same. The doctor or businessman who provides the plan is not advocating how the plan should be used. There is no moral decision made by the plan provider at all.

Like I say, this Wesley J Smith is doing what idiot writers do everywhere, contribute to confusion and consternation among the community of phony Christians.

Revelation Timeline

This timeline of the Book of Revelation, written after the destruction of the temple in 70 AD, was originally posted at this static page on this blog entitled Essential Articles/END TIMES:


Here is a brief timeline regarding the Book of Revelation. Clearly, the book of Revelation was written after the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The real destruction was to follow.

And clearly also, most of the prophets who were killed were killed in Jerusalem. The Great City clearly refers to Jerusalem multiple times. However, the destruction of the beast does not. I am putting this timeline out there. I believe it has merit and makes more sense than other timelines, especially Dispensationalist timelines which are created out of thin air:

1. Rev chapter 18 speaks to the destruction of Jerusalem but was written after the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. It could speak to the completed destruction after 70 AD, in 135 AD, when Jerusalem was literally ploughed under. In 70 AD, 30,000 He…

Predestined to Hell

The human mind cannot always take in the sobering reality of predestination. We who are predestined are greatful, but sorrowful. We know many we love are not so predestined. It hurts. Paul said he could wish that he would suffer if his kinsmen would be saved.

But it is also that same Apostle Paul who told the truth in Romans chapter 9, that some vessels were created for special use, like fancy kitchenware, and others were created for menial use, to be thrown away.

The truth is, sin is created by those who are not kept from it. The devil and Adam created sin in their acts of defiance, having been permitted to have a will apart from the will of God. They used that will to create sin. It is always that way. Only God is good, and only His Will is sinless.

So then, there are a few predestined to heaven, through God given faith. And there are many, including many who believed in predestination like Calvin and the Protestants, who are predestined to hell. They were created for menial use onl…
