Romans 6:

Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey —whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart the pattern of teaching that has now claimed your allegiance. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

16 Year Old Girl Dies of Cancer After Being Refused Treatment for 3 Weeks Due to Pregnancy

This is why religious people seem so insane. They don't realize the baby dies if the mother dies...

"I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts" Rev. 2:23

"Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and REINS." ( Psalm 7:9 )

Quote: "This English word is “reins”; and it has been completely eliminated and replaced in modern versions like the NKJV, NIV, RSV, ESV, NASB, NET and Holman versions with inexact substitutes like “heart, mind, or emotions”, all of which are NOT what the Hebrew nor the Greek actually say. There are other Hebrew and Greek words for those things, but none of them is the specific word for “reins”."

Re: ****Official RGT Article Thread****

Surprised this hasn't been posted already.

A couple of weeks ago, the Centro de Estudios Borjanos in Borja, Spain, received a donation from the granddaughter of 19th-century painter Elías García Martínez. At the time, the Centro knew of only one painting by Martínez in Borja — Ecce H0M0, a fresco on the walls of the church of Santuario de Misericordia.



..an octogenarian neighbor of the church, who, noticing the damage to the painting, took it upon herself to restore the painting "with good intentions" but "without asking permission," as culture councillor Juan Maria de Ojeda put it.
