You need evidence to know whether killing babies is right or wrong? Lol. You keep making yourself look worse and worse.
I’d like to see the evidence before I answer your question otherwise you’re just talking smack.

This is not about evidence this is about knowing what is right and or wrong. I don't know why you can't answer the question. You're trying to squirm your way out of it.

"An attack on a village in Yemen ordered by Donald Trump on Sunday caused the death of a newborn baby and up to 23 civilians, according to the human rights group Reprieve."

"A pregnant Palestinian woman and her one-year-old niece have been killed in a wave of Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip."

They attacked Midian just as the LORD had commanded Moses, and they killed all the men ... Then the Israelite army captured the Midianite women and children and seized their cattle and flocks and all their wealth as plunder. They burned all the towns and villages where the Midianites had lived. After they had gathered the plunder and captives, both people and animals, they brought them all to Moses and Eleazar the priest, and to the whole community of Israel, which was camped on the plains of Moab beside the Jordan River, across from Jericho. Moses, Eleazar the priest, and all the leaders of the people went to meet them outside the camp. But Moses was furious with all the military commanders who had returned from the battle. "Why have you let all the women live?" he demanded ... Now kill all the boys and all the women who have slept with a man. Only the young girls who are virgins may live; you may keep them for yourselves. (Numbers 31:7-18 NLT)

She's a hypocrite but also, evil and a liar.

She claimed that she already answered the question but then a few posts back she just told me that she would need evidence in order to answer the question. Which is it?

Another sad thing to note is she wants evidence, don't know what that has to do with anything, to answer the question of is killing babies right or wrong.

Maybe a lot of Christian problems stem from if not when thinking. I think most Christians tend to think that now that we know God..nothing will happen to us and that we will only be happy now that we have God. We tend to not see anything else in the Bible that contradicts that thinking. I know I did that too.

The sad reality is that the gospel and Christian message of today is nothing more than motivational speaking. It presents Christ as not the lord over ones life where his will be done, but rather as just an accessory or addition to someones life that will bring worldly blessing and good. Its almost as if God is there for nothing more than inspiration for the furthering of ones own selfish ambitions and pursuits.

Jesus gave us a different expectation. He told us in this world we would have tribulation and that the world would hate us. This is the expectation.

I have to agree with you there..I went to a church that I eventually thought of as a country club. We all wanted to feel good and we did leave feeling good. I don‘t think any one of us could talk to a non Christian about God, we weren’t taught that in church.

That church decided to have a Saturday night church that was ’pastored’ by the local Christian therapist and honestly..except for the therapist part I thought it was more like what a church was supposed to be...the hurting encouraging the hurting. Though I suspect they were using secular tactics and not talking so much about God helping you as you helping yourself..but in my mind that is what church should be about. Encouraging one another to stay faithful to our faithful God no matter what life looks like...ministering to each other in that way and helping us all know how to share the good news and becoming comfortable with it. Sermons from the Bible and we talk about sin and its affects..not try to keep up the cheer from week to week so that you’ll happily give.

I also noticed not many wanted to volunteer in Children’s church..it was an hour break for most parents..and I think that was a sad reality.

The sub normal state of affairs of the church has been the norm for so long that people believe the true body of Christ are the malefactors and paranoid extremists. Its a sad state of affairs and incredible stumbling block...

I can believe that..I told some people my thoughts about things like the pre trib and osas..even about Adam and Eve and they looked at me like I was strange. This one man looked at me like I was the devil when I said I didn’t celebrate Christmas and thought it was wrong..
