"And BTW: If you need to wear a cross or any other symbol to remind you of what Jesus did at the cross, you are not spending enough time in the WORD" This is your opinion. You are not in the heart or mind of anyone that you are bringing this on. Colossians 2:16 states "Therefore let no one pass judgment on you in questions of food and drink, or with regard to a festival or a new moon or a Sabbath." 1Corinthians 2:10: These things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. You are not God and know not of what is in someones mind or heart to judge anyone. And BTW, I don't look to ANY other book except the Bible for information. If it's not explained in the Bible, I pray for answers from God
Doug, “Somebody has to; women have abandoned that responsibility” I don’t feel that all women have abandoned that responsibility. Please see figures above. I also understand there a lot of women left to raise a baby because men abandoned their responsibility of being a father, and some of that is being factored in people’s reasoning for abortion when it comes to why they feel what they feel. I do not believe in abortion and do not support any part of it, no exceptions. I try not to judge but to understand so I can pray to God.
Thank you for the article. The media certainly is exposing a lot of things that are heartbreaking. Appears to be such an imbalance on showing bad things on TV and not much good. They don’t provide in their estimates how many women there are in the US versus the number protesting. The number of females in the U.S. as of July 2014 was 162 million, and while the quote used in this article is a little more than a million on this march is still a large number, compared to the census of 2014, it is very small compared to those who (I assume) do not agree with abortion, and for me that is good news because that number far out numbers those who agree with abortion, and to me that leaves me feeling there are still a lot of good women who “believe that our gentleness and perceptiveness could improve the world.” I, too, am disheartened over this march and pray that God will open their hearts, and I still have hope. There are still a lot of good examples out there, but I feel the media doesn’t show that group.

Hi Eric, I do not know of any scripture in the Bible that states something needs to be in the Bible to be an article of faith; however, it is mentioned in the Bible, first commandment, Exodus 19:17-19; 20:1, Thou shall have no other gods before me. To celebrate christmas would be acceptance of pagan gods, Deut: 12:31. This booklet 'Holidays or Holy Days
Does It Matter Which Days We Observe?' here at UCG was very helpful to me.
With regard to when Jesus was born, I may have overlooked it in the article above, but would like to mention also that in Luke 1:26-27 talks about John the Baptist's birth. Elizabeth was already 6 months pregnant with John when God sent the angel Gabriel to Mary, (cousins). Going by this, it makes John 6 months older than Jesus, which places Jesus born in September if we go by Luke 1:5, Luke 1:8-13 and 1:23-24.
