    Proverbs Chp. 5 - Children should steer clear of actions that may seem harmless only to regret such when the consequences following such actions were not anticipated. Male children should steer clear of "loose women and prostitutes". They may believe they are having fun only to realise that such fun lead to remorse...when it has become too late to remedy the situation.

    The fear of the lord is the beginning of Wisdom (Proverbs 9:10) therefore we should always carefully follow the instructions of God's uncompromising word. Remember; B.I.B.L.E. also means Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth. If we follow God's instructions that are written in his word and apply these instructions through the leading of his holy Spirit, we have his assurance of being successful.

    Abortion is - murder. The 'instant' the sperm and seed come together - is life. And GOD created it. These are HIS children, not ours. We are to raise them in HIS precepts, not ours.
