  1. I would guess that America is more of a stage-setter for the coming Tribulation rather than an actual player in it. These recent world events highlight it all.
  2. I guess at the end of the day, one can only conclude that whenever there is some sort of law for something, when the state puts something on paper, things often get complicated. Just because there is a law in place doesn't mean it is enforced. If a person wants to give his/her prescription drug to others, how easy is it to catch them? Not easy unless you want to establish a police state with cameras all around. "Mass execution" is no guarantee that druggies will "be taught a lesson" - sometimes it may even be counterproductive. Remember, when you throw a convict in prison, he gets a crimina
  3. How do you define a "drug"? Most things people eat or drink is considered a "drug". You have alcohol. Then you have caffeine. Then you have nicotine, and so on and so forth. Note that the Scriptures do not directly say anything against drugs, but did warn about the danger of addiction. Many cults like to use drugs to "get high" as part of their rituals and practices. Such the Bible calls "sorcery", and is one of the marks of the lost. There are drugs that are highly addictive and can be fatal. If we legalize it 100%, they'll be easily made available to everyone. With demand, comes supply
  4. Yay of course. ww2 movies?
  5. I believe in this case the more important thing is to honor parents rather than submit to them all the time - let me explain this part first... When you are still a child or teen, you're under authority of your parents and by right should listen to what they tell you to do. But how about when you reach adulthood - esp. when you get married? Not under their authority any longer, but then the most important part is to honor them - just as you did when you were younger. I've came from a pre-dominantly non-Christian country (where even professing Christians are in the minority) where it is the

  8. Would like to voice out my view: Is war, as a rule, really part of God's will? If yes, then why is it that in the Millennial Kingdom, and in Heaven there are no weapons? "And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more." - Isaiah 2:4 Isn't war all about destruction and killing? The Scriptures say, "Thou shalt not kill" (or rather, do no murder), and "Thou shalt not steal". Why do wars even erupt in
  9. I think, rather than focusing on what a govt has to say - we should look at what churches as a whole say. The best way we express our opposition to the sins of this world today is not by enforcing this law and that law, but rather what WE believe and do. James 1 said true religion is "visiting the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." (James 1:27) Two things we should do - do God's will faithfully (love Him, and love others as ourselves) and separate ourselves clearly from sin. That I believe is the way to say "no" to the world. One thi
