I feel terrible because I became soft on abortion.
I did not deny the atrocity of it. I simply began to regard it as a necessary evil.
I thought that it would prevent extreme abuse later on. I thought that 1st trimester death in utero was preferable to what happens on the outside. I used as my argument that we don't have the resources to meet all of these needs as a direct result of cut social programs. In AZ we have foster kids sleeping on the floors of "CPS" offices. I just kept saying this to myself until my reaction became dulled.
But I recently became unable to stomach some information that I couldn't escape. And now I am outraged and my heart physically hurts. I know that a big part of dulling my response was because I couldn't be loving to those who chose abortion, knowing all the facts. I had to find some reconciliation through "the greater good" perspective.
I'm glad I never voted for it. But I sure didn't continue the fight.
I'm trying to clean my spiritual house and it's been quite an experience. I have been worn down in more than a few areas.

In the process of our believing in Jesus is that our sins our forgiven. As mike , pointed out, we look forward. Keep in mind that when our sins are forgiven, "And we have come to know and believe the love that God has for us. God is love" 1John 4:16 "Love...keeps no record of wrongs." 1Cor. 13:5b
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power to prevail." James 5:16 Rest in the thought that your brethren pray and care for you and your loving Father in Heaven has already forgiven you.
"This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12
boymaker: Thanks for sharing Dr. Barry Awe. Apparently his channel blew up and many Christians are responding. A lot of mockers, but some are excited and admit they are feeling the Spirit when they watch him.

boymaker: Even if he's wrong, and he likely is, he stoked a fire in me and I'm glad for it.

EnochWalked: A guy on YouTube with nearly 3 million subscribers makes funny videos that are quite popular, although some of the jokes are in poor taste. His latest video has an interesting segment: youtu.be/td-OFKT-GPk?t=196 (timestamp 3:16 to 3:44).

bernie: boymaker, strange video. The line between demonic possession, mental illness, or drug influence gets hazy and hard to distinguish between. But either way, it's a sign of the times, and I expect we'll see more of this. Thanks for the video.

Natalie: Gary - I saw a video that says that it is a pressure release value somewhere and one video did show what appeared to be steam which also could be the "object" one guy saw in the sky. But it was so loud and just weird. I don't know what to believe on

Natalie: some of this stuff. I know I wouldn't want to hear loud weird screaming noises

Gary: Well I guess that's good news Maybe just that pressure valve after all. Although, "as above, so below." Very ominous with the thunder and lightning and demonic screaming.
