    I can't help but wonder how many more lives could be saved if the energy and resources used for these over-the-top protest were used in witnessing to and praying for the abortion doctors. A life lost to an abortion is a terrible thing. About as bad as anything I can think of. But you know what else is a terrible thing? A person that spends eternity in hell because of the attitudes and actions of those were were supposed to show Christ.

    I don't know what believers are supposed to do anymore. It's bad form to kill abortion doctors and burn their clinics.

    I guess we leave it to the Supremes somewhere deep in the future, while countless millions of babies are murdered.

    Bad Form? BAD FORM? What part of "Thou shalt not kill" do you not understand! Does God command you to even give this a moment of consideration. Even if one disagrees with ANY abortions, killing doctors is NOT what a sane person would ever advocate.

    Exactly and lifeandliberty does NOT advocate killing doctors and/or burning abortion clinics.

    Getting in your face, yes.

    Trespassing, maybe.

    Killing, burning, no.

I know Gods commandments very well. Lighten up...

    To save a human life an ambulance driver will break the law and exceed the speed limit.

    Jesus used the example of pulling a donkey out of the ditch on the sabbath to illustrate a similar principle of breaking the Law to save even the life of a dumb animal.

    </font>[/QUOTE]Ambulances have actually crashed into cars and injured and killed people when speeding. That is why they are not supposed to speed.

    I don't think pulling a donkey out of a ditch on the Sabbath was ever against God's law. Jesus just used that to defend himself because he was healing on the Sabbath and the pharisees were trying to accuse him of breaking the Sabbath. The Pharisees might have had man-made teachings against taking an animal out of a ditch or healing on the Sabbath, but God never did.

    So Jesus did not advocate breaking a law.

    Good point. I should have put quotation marks around "breaking the law".

    And yes you are correct, Jesus used the example of the pharisees pulling a donkey out of the ditch on the sabbath to illustrate that even they considered animal life more important than the Sabbath rest.

    An aside: But this was not His main argument for healing on the Sabbath or for anything else that He did on the Sabbath (allow His disciples to pick grain), but this is the reason :Matthew 12:8 For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.

    But as I said previously multitudes of Christians have "broken the law" and were martyred just because they would not bow the knee to Caesar.

    Right. But they violated a command to do something that was against God. That is different than the breaking of laws being discussed here.

    Yes, for the most part that is true, killing doctors, arson, etc is not the solution even when abortion was a high crime.

    However some christians consider "trespassing" or breaking a city ordinance (carrying signs and slogans which offend) as a law that they can break in order to persuade at least one mother to not shed the innocent blood of her baby.

    Today a mother's womb is no longer a sacred place.
    In fact it is one of the most dangerous places on earth for the unborn.

    When I was a boy abortion was an unspeakable felony and the word itself was hardly even spoken and associated with shame and disgrace.

    Today it is legal, sanitized, a "choice" and often that "choice" is one of convenience (career vs motherhood).

    I believe the day is coming, and soon, when Christians in America will have to "break the law" just to call certain sins "sin" and abortion will be one of them.
