Finally!

Well I would love to discuss thing further with everyone but there is some pressing issues that have to be addressed. I have to make room for the new Marvin addition. So bear with me as I tend to my wife and new baby.




Look out world another, soon to be, Christian to preach the Gospel. This is an honor to help raise a Godly child for the Lord. This child here is on loan to Patty and I from God.



I forgot to add something that I found out. Does anyone know where the word cesarean came from? Roman law under Caesar decreed that all women who were so fated by childbirth must be cut open; hence, cesarean. Was this the birth (no pun) of the business of being born? The beautiful nature of birth has been interrupted by man for many years now. We are on an epidemic path to inducing births and intervening the very natural process of child birth. Why does man think they can do better then God can? Psalm 127:3 Lo, an inheritance of Jehovah are sons, A reward is the fruit of the womb.

Let me share with you what happened just Thursday June 19th. If we trusted man we would have had a baby then. We were being pressured by the doctors and nurses that the baby needed to come out because it was 'flat lined' they called it. Which means not much movement but a heart beat. Patty was crying saying the doctor (not ours) said that we had to get to the hospital. My conscience felt that everything was just fine. As a precaution we went to the Hospital and they started to get every tool ready, knives, forceps, incubator, etc. and Patty questioned the nurses and said she thought the doctor just wanted to monitor the baby. They first nurse said "nope the doctor (not the one that delivered our two boys) ordered the inducing of the baby and they needed to start a pit" (pitocin). We could of let them just deliver the baby since we found out that our doctor was flying to Africa later that night and she wouldn't be back for two weeks. She does great mission work out there. This is her in the picture with the children at the top. I(we) refused and said God didn't want the baby to be born yet. Then that curt nurse left and we found out she was filling in for our our nurse Rachel (Christian) who said the baby looked fine and movement was fine. Our Doctor, the one flying to Africa, came in and said the baby looked fine and if we wanted to go home then that would be fine. If we would of trusted mankind we would of had the baby born that day because they put real pressure on us with scare tactics to induce the birth. More money for the hospital or easier scheduling, I would imagine. We stood firm in our faith and the devil fled, we witnessed to many people at the hospital had some laughs and came home. The Baby was born naturally as God intended it to be Monday June 23rd at 11:07pm.

Bible Science: Why was circumcision to be carried out on the eighth day? (Genesis 17:12) Medical science has discovered that the eighth day is the only day in the entire life of the newborn that the blood clotting element prothrombin is at the highest levels.

  1. Congratulations, Dan, Marci looks healthy, which is, of course, the only concern for a parent following his child's birth.

    I wish her luck in her life under your roof(s), that she learns to question your belief system without otherwise damaging her relationship with you, as I feel I have done with my own parents.

    I also wish you luck in contending with her inevitable doubt, such that you will (again, with luck) recognize the validity of the arguments against your position, through her if nothing else.

    Again, congratulations.

  2. Heh. I also couldn't help but note that you have one pair of sunglasses on your head, and two in your shirt... Firstborn, then?

    :)

  3. Thanks all,

    This is our 4th child and our third boy. He was 9 & 3/4 lbs and 22" long. Patty and I are turning 40 this year in August and it would be nice for another girl for book ends later on, but that is truly up to God, isn't it. They come home tomorrow!

    The baby is covering up my million dollar bills in my pocket that I was handing out to everyone I crossed paths with. Better then cigars, right?

  4. Err... ahem...

    Sorry... The ankle bracelet clearly says "Marci", so I assumed your latest addition to be a girl...

    My apologies.

  5. Stan you are quite the observant fellow. sort of.

    The bracelet said MD: Dabbs, Marci As in the doctor that delivered him.

    Just another example of an atheist jumping to conclusions, without all the data.

    I hope you understand that I am just digging at you and mean you no harm. peace

  6. D'oh! Burn!

    I was hoping to impress you with my psychic abilities, but alas, your child was not a lass...

    I'm sensing... amusement...

    Your future will contain... sleepless nights...

    I am amazing.

  7. "it would be nice for another girl for book ends later on, but that is truly up to God, isn't it."

    umm, no, it was entirely up to you Dan, just as you inserted your penis into your wifes vagina and let go of your sperm as in the other previous situations resulting in the birth of another human being.

    Was it Allah, Mohammad, Jesus, Satan?

    No, it was D.M. it had nothing to do with any god.

    Ask your wife, she didn't even know you had ejaculated, unless you told her. But you knew it and your imaginary god knew it before she did.

    If she didn't know you inseminated her, how could a god have known?

    Because you told her.

    She was there first, to be told by you, not by any god.

    You see Dan, your mental world view revolves around you and your imaginary god, it doesn't revolve around what your wife or family thinks, it's all about Dan Marvin and his perception, although it be through bibilical indoctrination from other human beings.

  8. Oh BTW, I noticed they are congradulating you instead of your wife, you must be so proud of what you have had to go through, with all the pain and suffering you had to do.

  9. Steven,

    I was very close to deleting what you said because of your antagonistically crass comment but for now I will leave it up. Please, clean it up and be civil and we can discuss matters as gentlemen.

    You made a great point though.

    I said "it would be nice for another girl for book ends later on, but that is truly up to God, isn't it."

    "umm, no, it was entirely up to you Dan"

    Yes I agree it's the male chromosomes that determines the sex. I am one to believe though if God wants a boy he gets one. I fully believe that Jesus was a son, on purpose not chance.

    "I noticed they are [congratulating] you instead of your wife,..."

    Yea that was the joke at the end of the Youtube video also. I said something to the effect of "that wasn't so hard, see".

    My wife is a very strong woman, not one of my children needed suction cups or forceps or any other intervention by man to bring these glorious kids into this world. That glory goes to God though. I sure wish Eve would of just listened to God so they didn't have to go through that pain, something our free will choices got us into.

  11. Yeah I can see the big picture now.

    God is in heaven looking down upon the earth and he's in search of people looking for people to continually spread his inspired gospel, so he looks around and through all the billions living on earth he spots Dan Marvin, and says to himself, ah there's a good christian I'll have him to get an erection and inseminate his wife and they will have a litte girl and she'll take up his beliefs and propagate more male preachers to spread my gospel message.

    This is ecentually what you are saying to us Dan.

    So the bible god works his interaction through the medium of the human sex act.

    In other words, god created sex between a man and a woman so that his gospel message could be passed on from generation to generation.

    I hardly think the Chinese would agree with you Dan, and there's more of them over there than there is of us over here.

    So somebody got it wrong, of course it would not have been you, Dan.

    Because you are always right and you are never wrong and you have never been wrong about anything that you have ever said or done and a Christian is always right, because they can do no wrong, because they have their make believe savior waiting 24/7 just waiting for someone to forgive them of all their sins so they can continue to commit more sins and ask again for more forgiveness.

  12. Because you are always right... I appreciate the compliment but that just is a fallacy. We are human and get things wrong when we try to intellectualize things. God's Word, if followed, is never wrong.

    they have their make believe savior waiting 24/7 just waiting for someone to forgive them of all their sins so they can continue to commit more sins and ask again for more forgiveness. Sorry that is the definition of unrepentant which I was for many many years when I had a belief in Jesus but didn't put my full faith and trust in Him.

    Romans 6:

    1What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

    2God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

    3Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?

    4Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

    5For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:

    6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

    7For he that is dead is freed from sin.

    8Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:

    9Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

    10For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.

    11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.

    13Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

    14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

    15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

    16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

    17But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

    18Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

    19I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

    20For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.

    21What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

    22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

    23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

  13. What is such a shame is, that you are already planning to tell your little girl that there lives a man in heaven above and if she does not believe in him, he will her her to hell.

    And she will believe you because she thinks you have secret knowledge because you were here on earth before she was.

    What's really is such a shame is you're just telling her something that someone else told you was true, garbage that was written down by a bunch of dope head arab gypsies 2000 years ago.

  14. I'm late to the congratulations game, but seriously congratulations! I know we certainly have our different world views, but you and I both want you to love and care for that child, and I'm pretty sure you will. Your child may choose to be a Christian, and if they are one who is loving and compassionate towards others, then that is a wonderful thing. The love you show your child will be the deciding factor in how much love they want to share with the world.

  15. I will show them hell as a real place so they won't be loving this world too much.

    1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

    Thanks for the kind words. Please get to heaven...please.

  16. When i say love the world, I mean the people, not the place.

    "For God so loved the world..."

  17. Touché

    I knew what you meant, but you know me.

    "In the world are pleasures, delights, and all those allurements by which man is captivated, so as to withdraw himself from God." Calvin

  19. Dan, congratulations! It took courage for your wife and you to decide to wait for God's perfect timing. Steps of faith are scary opportunities, no doubt, but when they are taken with sincerity and trust, with a pure heart, the Lord, our refuge, is our rock of protection.

    God bless you in these strange and terrible days, may he continue to be your refuge in the days to come.

    On another note, Stan, the half-truth teller, and steven seem like real jerks. Guys, you might have philosophical differences with Dan, but what does that have to do with the birth of his child? If you are at enmity with him, then don't offer empty congratulations.

    If you are simply trying to work together with Dan in the pursuit of truth, (i.e., if you are each trying to convince the other of your point of view) then let go of the arguments for now, and share in him with his joy.

    Whether you believe it or not, out of the mouth pours an abundance of our hearts. Our words reveal ourselves. Don't be careless and hateful just because it makes you feel good. Be human beings!
