Discussion for 1 Kings 14

  • Sandy
    RALPH M. WATERS I believe all babies and Children are innocent, Jesus says to come to him as children. That tells me that Jesus wants us all to be as innocent as a child they don't know evil they are very forgiving, loving, humble, and honest. I believe an aborted, or abused child's souls go to heaven before they are abused or aborted. And We all have to answer to God in the end.
  • Irene123
    God does not 'take' anyone. He gave the human race FREE WILL - to chose Him or satan. Abortion is a free will choice of the mother, not God; the soul of the child goes to God - forever. We all have a time to die; only God knows when. That is why we must repent, be baptized in the NAME OF JESUS, and receive the Holy Ghost while it is yet 'day'; while GRACE reigns.
  • It was true when 1 Kings was written and it is true today and will be true forever It is God s word
  • RALPH M. WATERS
    THE ONE THINK THAT STRIKES ME IN THIS CHAPTER, IS VERSES 12 & 13. A FEW MONTHS BACK I SPOKE ON "ABORTION", SOME ASKED WHY WOULD GOD TAKE A CHILD, WHO DID NO GOOD OR EVIL. I EXPLAINED TO THEM HOW GOD KNOWS US FROM THE VERY WOMB, WHETHER WE WILL BE GOOD OR EVIL, WHETHER WE WILL BE RAISED IN THE LATTER DAYS TO GLORIFICATION OR DAMNATION. ACTUALLY, LIVING, IS JUST A PROCESS, GOD ALERADY, KNOWS WHO BELONG TO HIM.
