Mike B replied to Tomas GF's discussion Meditation and Christianity in the group Christian Men
"You are right in the sense that Christian meditation is focused on the Lord, not on the human "self." While we do have to "be still" and know that He is Lord (the Psalms esp. teach this), the world confuses the techniques of…"

Mike B replied to Will's discussion Obamacare as it stands in the group The Great Debate
"Why does any Christian support Obamacare? It mandates abortion coverage. Now, many Protestants base their faith and moral lives on Scripture alone. Scripture is silent on abortifacients; in fact, it might even be a stretch to equate abortion with…"
