Thanks for the link, it was interesting. I won't accept any scientific findings that contradict scripture. IOW, if science says they have found a homosexual gene and there is absolutely no controversy surrounding that finding, I would still deny that finding and ignore them.

When we use misnomers in lieu of how the Word of God describes one, it somehow waters down the effect. Example. Forgiveness vs apology.
I have found that if I ask someone to forgive me, it seems to produce a sphere of holiness. The hearer realizes this is heavenly expression. Saying "I apologize" produces nothing lasting and seems plastic.
Example. Forgiveness vs apology.
As you can see one is biblical. Jesus said "The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life."
Using the word "fruitcake" makes light of a serious situation.

But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were *dead* in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
The law is powerfully captivating. We cannot escape it. We cannot live under it. It sentences us. We cannot will it away or hide from it. Its a killer. Unsaved man i bound to it.
US, fear and silencing is sufficient for control. and yes, there are state orders and they are coming and increasing. just went to the store and was greeted by a man in long brightly colored nails and effeminate clothes (works there). its a family oriented store -- why would they do this? ... fear of being sued.
Frank wrote: I didnât read the article. I remember years ago reading something by Mohler where he said we shouldnât be surprised if we found a gay gene one day. He was basing that on someone finding gay sheep and he felt if sheep were gay, then they had to be born that way. At that time, he also said that even though we might be born gay, we should abstain from the behavior because it was sinful. I wrote him an email outlining the problems I had with his âborn gayâ thoughts and he didnât respond. I hope most know that the RCC doesnât say their priests canât be homosexual, but simply that they canât practice homosexuality. And if they do, they simply confess it to one another and move on until the next time they practice it. Anyway, from that time forward, I have never listened to any of his sermons and donât ever intend to. That plus his signing of the Manhattan Declaration and his refusal to withdraw his signature in my mind was public heresy. Please excuse me using the word gay instead of homosexual. I did it solely because if Iâm not mistaken that is the way he referred to homosexuals in the article I read years ago.

Soooo, Unprofitable what you're saying is that all of the man made dieties of the RCC are OK? God did tell Moses in the construction of the tent to make certain images, but that was God. Read your bible my friend (Exodus 20:4 and Leviticus 26:1) just to clarify. Perhaps we don't worship these great men like an idol per SE, but they were just that... Men like we are. But hey, people don't worship musicians and Hellywood Stars either.
Wonderful Preaching! We are amazed at his detailed exposition of the Scriptures. Pastor Arnie is one of the best Pastors on SermonAudio. You really need to download and listen. You'll learn SO much!!!A faithful servant of God, we are so blessed to have Pastor Arnie as our shepherd!
Wonderful Sermon! Pastor Arnie is SUCH a blessing! If you can't get to South Florida, make sure you check out his series on Romans. It's extraordinary expository preaching. My husband and I just love him! Expository preaching is hard to find...so check out this Pastor, he's such a blessing!!!
Great Sermon! Just sent you email about the apostate churches in my area are "blessing" the abortion clinics. Going out tomorrow, prayed up to the hilt, to the Planned Parenthood "health center." This is wicked on steroids.
And yes, I would lose my life for the cause of Christ.
Great Sermon! Rev DeYoung,
I hope you put more sermons on SermonAudio!!! We need messages like this. It's hard to hear Reformed teaching and Biblical exposition. Great job! Please have someone post more of your sermons!God bless!
I struggled over 10 years, with depression and alcohol abuse yet, when I hit bottom, reach out and grab the hand of God's strength, grace, and fortitude , sought counseling and ended my dependence on alcohol and the depressive lifestyle it gave me. Then, why can't that be the same from every sin listed in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. And then why can't those who have been washed, sanctified , and justified in the name of Jesus Christ and the spirit of our God. Be transformed. No sin is a lifestyle unless Christ in God frees you from it. And however manner He walks you through that desert, he will see it to the end.
