While reading through the article, I couldn't figure out what the hype and arrest was about because all the were speaking was the truth about dangers of the lifestyle, etc. Then I read this quote:
"...itâ€™s illegal to call people names in Canada"
So, I guess this is all because the homosexuals were called homosexuals? Everything I read spoke to common facts. I didn't see any name calling, anyone screaming,"you're going to hell", etc, etc, just facts that anyone might hear or read anywhere. How times have changed, and how fast they have changed...

If he really wants to be the antichrist, Francis needs to take some tutorials from the thousands of protestant Church leaders that SUCCESSFULLY embraced sodomite marriage & the vile acts associated
Why don't you offer him private tuition, since you are such an expert on vileness and hatred?
Blessed for my heart. This is one of the best sermons I ever heard. It encouraged me, it strengthened me on the way I have to go. I really needed it. When it spoke about Christ being made sin for us it was almost unbearable. Precious savior, what did you suffer for me! Fulfill in my life the end of Your death for me!
This is the real John Yurich. Nobody in their right mind would care what you have to state about anything because you don't have the ability to know who has and has not embraced Jesus as their Personal Savior.
The government is prohibited from impeding the free exercise of religion according to the Constitution. The have no right getting involved with religious ceremonies. I'm sure the ACLU will jump right on the case! Lol
This is the real John Yurich. Those ministers should stand their biblical ground and go to jail for refusing to celebrate fruitcake marriage. I suppose Catholic priests and Eastern Orthodox priests in Idaho will also be told they must perform fruitcake marriages?
True ministers will just have to stand their biblical ground and face consequences, just like the disciples did in the NT days. Ahhh, the good ol' days are coming back, when persecution for the truth was the norm in a Christian's life (where "good" does not necessarily mean good).
Dolores, did you ever see the film made called The Cross and The Switchblade? I thought the moment when Nicky Cruz came to faith in Jesus Christ was portrayed really well, as the Holy Spirit brought the enlightenment to his mind, and turned him around.
And I also thought David Wilkerson a great example of a caring evangelist, risking his life for the sake of the gospel, to preach it where not many would go for fear of their lives.
Fearsome & Important Message It is sobering, awfully sobering, yet abundantly clear throughout scripture, and even by Jesus' own words when he walked the earth that Christ rejects those who reject Him. We must all pray & pray & pray for churches who falsely think themselves to be Christ's, but have abandoned Christ (and his Gospel) just as the cities of Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum did whom Christ curses in these verses from Matthew 11:20-24. And more fearsome it is that Jesus tells them it will be even worse for them than Tyre and Sidon, and then it is even more fearsome that Jesus tells them "it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you." (NASB translation)
Summary, Part 3 (final) IN THE NEW TESTAMENT: 1. It confronts us with the mystery of God incarnate [52:30]: the mystery of godliness. Jesus Christ is our Emmanuel (â€śGod with usâ€ť). 2. It renders sinners inexcusable, since it is displayed to all men in creation [53:10]. Evolution is a lie in the face of the God-given conscience. 3. It guarantees the enactment of His decree to save [54:40]. Without election, there is no hope for salvation. 4. It evokes our adoration, blessing, and praise to God alone [56:03]. We could never have conceived His plan of salvation. 5. It teaches us to wait patiently for Him to work [57:05]. Adopt His decree instead of humanityâ€™s own limited sense of time. The elect are still being saved.
Summary, Part 2 III. SUMMARY OF THE PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF GODâ€™S RELATION TO TIME. A. THE PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF GODâ€™S ETERNITY AND EVERPRESENCE [34:49]. IN THE OLD TESTAMENT: 1. It admonishes us to fear Godâ€™s wrath. Our grumbling is a subconscious challenge to Godâ€™s wisdom. 2. It teaches us to face the brevity of life [34:49]. Do we live as though tomorrow is guaranteed? 3. It calls us to pray for seasons of gladness, for the perpetuation of our work, for deliverance from premature death, and for His blessing on our children [40:10]. Godâ€™s eternal essence encourages us to take the most important issues to Him. 4. It shows us how great He is and how little we know [44:45]. We are to repent of our sin of assuming Godâ€™s place. 5. It encourages us to seek security in God [47:06]. We were made to be dependent upon Him. What are we depending on instead? God is our rock; nothing else is. 6. It certifies the reliability of His word [49:10]. Do we stand on His word, or do we look for certainty somewhere else? He is our Rock. As we often sing, â€śall other ground is sinking sand.â€ť 7. It assures us that He is always accessible to humble and contrite men [50:46]. Are we proud and independent, or broken and dependent? Pride is the foundation of idolatry.
Summary, Part 1 Continuing from last week at II. SURVEY OF THE BIBLICAL WITNESS TO GOD'S RULE OVER TIME; A. THE BIBLICAL WITNESS TO GOD'S ETERNITY AND EVERPRESENCE: 5. ISAIAH 57:15 [starting at 5:43 of the audio]. In the first place, because God is eternal, His promises are reliable. This would not be so if God had some constraints upon His holiness. If He werenâ€™t eternal, He couldnâ€™t be trusted to finish what He started. Open Theism denies this. 6. JOHN 8:58 [14:44]. Jesusâ€™ testimony to His eternal existence. The Bible calls us to faith in its matters where we donâ€™t fully understand. 7. ROMANS 1:20 [20:29]. The evidence of our eyes AND the testimony of our consciences affirm that the creation has a creator. 8. ROMANS 16:25-27 [22:51]. God saves sinners and builds His church as He ordained in eternity, and no force of human history can stop it. 9. 1 TIMOTHY 1:17 [26:59]. Our election should move us to such praise. 10. 2 PETER 3:8-9 [29:29]. We are not on Godâ€™s time wave. Our impatience misinterprets Godâ€™s longsuffering and covenant promises, and it will not manipulate Him.
