I wish to enter feedback on your tirade against abortion. You all seem so sanctimoneoius in your condemnation of a woman's right to have an abortion. The fact is, it's not for you to make judgments against abortion, it's for God. Women who have too many children and cannot cope, or a 15 year old school girl, or a rape victim, should not be forced to have children just because of your personal interpretation of the bible. What about her education? There are sound social reasons why some girls should have abortions besides health, and your article is only concerned with the law. What about grace and compassion. I would rather allow a teen to have an abortion than force her to care for a child when she is just a child herself. Show some compassion.

I ask that God bless you and your family. I so appreciate you sharing the truth of the scriptures with us who are on the internet. You have many wonderful articles here on theology and eschatolgy, by my favorites are on the frequently asked questions page. It's been so informative to me. In particular, your answer to "Legalism, or Exhortation to Obedience," was just what I needed. The world so lacks strong preaching today. Thank you for your service.

I am a undergraduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, studying for a Bachelor of Science in Biology. I was required to write a research paper and my topic was proving that the Adam and Eve story was a myth. Upon searching for Adam and Eve I came across your website and I have become hooked on the excellent articles I find here. There are so much great reading and information on your website that it has completely gotten me off the topic of my paper. I may fail because of it.
So just wanted to say thanks for so much well thought out reading material, and to ask what denomination your ministry is. You have helped me understand eschatology in a way I never have before, and I can't thank you enough.

I want to thank you for the article on the unchristian pagan nature of Tattoos and the latests fads in gross body piercings. I particularly appreciate that you didn't just hang everything on the passage in Leviticus as so many others do, but you illustrated with scripture how we are to be a set apart people, not like the world. That we are to glorify God in our body as well as our life sealed it for me. Here's one that is under peer pressure but who will not be getting any tattoos. God bless the faithfulness of the mountain retreat.

City: Fredericksburg, Va
(KJV)Gen.2:2)And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. 3)And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. ..It doesn't say "on 'a' 7th day" (pick your 7th day); clearly "the" 7th day.(Christ rested the 7th day after He had finished all his work and was crucified) Thoughts for "christians": 1)The Hebrews are God's chosen people; 2)Christ's resurrection didn't change the Sabbath day; 3)Bible doesn't say 1st day of week was blessed and santified. God doesn't play "try to guess what I mean" with His Word. Either you do, eventually will, or never will. Last thought on Saturday being the Sabbath day. Man puts their thoughts & desires on what man wants, be very careful that you believe in God's Word & not man's word.

Hi, my name is Travis Tagliareni and I am currently a student at Ohio State. I just wanted to write and thank you for your excellent dissertation on cussing. I must admit that it is a vice that I have been having a problem with lately. But I wasn't really taking it too seriously until I read your article. I don't know why I thought these words were acceptable for Christians, but your writing caused me to take a long hard look at myself and realize that I was not being a good example of Christ. I didn't like what I saw. It is so difficult to let go of worldly habbits with peer pressure when you are young, but I have renewed my efforts thanks to your straight talk. I'm not even using replacement words anymore, and guess what? I have found I don't need them! Thank you so much for relentlessly pursuing the truth and helping me to grow in grace. And I know, as you would say, all thanks go to the Lord.

To whom it may concer,
I am a student in seminary and was told by a friend that I might find some interesting reading in your eschatology section. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised and delighted at the gold mine that I found. Particularly with the writings of Tony Warren whose habit of explaining chapters "verse by verse" in a clear understandable way, was very refreshing. That each case made is backed up with scripture is what I found unique about his interpretation. I am also a big fan of Kim Riddlebarger, and David J. Engelsma whose articles also enlightened rather than confused.
May I encourage you to keep up the great work. If I were a dean, I would make that section required reading.

Subject: Marys Perpetual Virginity
"No, the early Roman Catholic Church believed in Mary's perpetual virginity because it was a fact."
These are the facts...
Mt 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
Mr 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
Ac 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
Ro 3:4 yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
These are the facts... from God's word, the bible.
Please read it.

Obviously this is not new but was a very early belief of the church in Mary's perpetual virginity. And it could not have developed if she had children because they would have been prominent Christians. No, the early Roman Catholic Church believed in Mary's perpetual virginity because it was a fact. You are wrong and you should stop preaching that she had other children. In the New Testament we see how Mary is honored by all other creatures, and so for the Roman catholic Church to give her honor is not wrong. Please correct your doctrine.
