Well my guess is we will never see homosexual movements say that a God honored marriage shouldn't occur. They only want their abomination to be "accepted" by everyone; not just tolerated and be on equal footing. I tolerate homosexual conduct but would never accept it or condone or promote it in any way. By toleration, I simply mean that I will not use illegal means to stop it unless those illegal means are mandated by scripture. So, I will allow my conscience to be my guide and where scripture tells me to fight, I will fight against this abomination.
I agree fully with what this lady has done and the below comments are great and were a blessing to me. Well I ignore anything that John Y says, so I am not considering his.
I also think that this type of thing will result in the return of our Lord and His judgments will be exacted. There is no greater abomination that society can do or condone then this one; well maybe abortion? Come quickly Lord Jesus, come quickly.

Rom 11:19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. 22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree? 25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Rightful Division There is only one way of salvation for the believer and that is by faith in Jesus Christ and that is for ALL ages. The speaker is saying that the dispensations of the plan of God revealed in His Written Word are harmful to that doctrine. I understand by faith I am saved and so does the non dispensationalist. The doctrine of dispensationalism does not interfere with that; the divisions are built into the text. Rightly dividing the seemingly contradictory statements found in different books of Scripture (which I have struggled to sort out for years) fall into perfect alignment by rightly dividing His Word. I am a King James Bible advocate and have been born again for many years and in just the last 4 years I have learned how to rightly divide God's Word and it comes together so very clearly if we realize that God's Word is written FOR everyone but not TO everyone. Sometimes (as in Matthew 24) the words are written TO someone else and although I can benefit from them, they aren't addressing ME just as the Jewish law to not eat shellfish isn't addressing me. The dispensations were always there it's just that many don't RECOGNIZE them. That's as simply as I can put it.
There is not enough pew space to accommodate this idea. But if mandatory which church would be made the established place to go? RCC? JW? Mormon? Presbyterian? Baptist? Episcopalian? The local Mega? Franklin Graham's public meetings? PCUSA (Sodomite version)? Methodist? Lutheran? Pentecostal? Charismatic? Assemblies of God? Wesleyan? Prosperity Gospel? etc.
If everybody was forced to join such a myriad of confusion then they would have to increase the ministry training to fill all these pulpits. And when they did not get enough volunteers for the pulpits they would have to press gang them into service.
They would also have to close down the Mosques, Synagogues and Hindu temples.
Its a good job God made HIS Church only a Remnant.
Romans 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. 5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. 6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works:
"no more of works"? ~ Oh Does that cut out the Arminians?
Like it or not, America has become a nation of reprobates. God said he would turn people over to do abominable things when they reject his word. Just pray and fast that God would allow are next president to turn back to the Word. Even so, remember, this world is not our home, we're just passing through.
Romans 1:24-27 KJV " Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
Jim, God showed us His plan for the salvation of the Jews, and that is the Great Commission. If you were serious about your burden for them you would be taking the gospel to them and enduring your ensuing persecution. However, that would be the blind leading the blind, seeing as the kingdom you promote is the Rothschild kingdom, not the eternal one.
A Timely Message This is a timely message for sure. Is there confusion over the widespread approval of homosexuality in the church? Have you been told the loving response of the church is to embrace, celebrate, and sanctify this sin? Here, Pastor Nutter lays out the true loving response to homosexuality from the church. We are called to be light and salt to the world. This sermon walks you through what God has to say about sexual sin, how we are to respond, and the hope in Christ we are to share with those who are enslaved to sin. I encourage you to share this message with others who have exchanged God‚Äôs truth for a lie.
they want groveling slaves who abhor these perversions to be forced to partake in a piece of their abomination with them? they want the photographer, the pastor, the cake maker, the florist all standing at their reception with horror and disgust?
and what healthy Christian family would force sodomites into their wedding ceremony?
only reflects that this is from the pits. I'm sure there are people out there mixed into this lifestyle who are not cruel like this, I can only hope that this movement wakes them up to what evil is and that they turn to Christ as their Lord and Savior, who forgives His people and gives them a new nature. Glory to God to be saved from the pits! Scripture says there are no shadows with God Almighty.
Continuing with my thought process of this morning, I quote something that impacted my thoughts years ago, from 'A Treatise of Christian Love.' by Hugh Binning The quotes are out of context related to space. Quote #1
"Now it is most reasonable to suppose that by the law of creation, there was no less order and unity to be among men, the chiefest of the works of God. And so it was indeed. As God had moulded the rest of the world into a beautiful frame, by the first stamp of his finger, so he did engrave upon the hearts of men such a principle, as might be a perpetual bond and tie to unite the sons of men together. This was nothing else but the law of love, the principal fundamental law of our creation, love to God,(first table 10 Commandments) founded on that essential dependence and subordination to God and love to man (2nd table) grounded upon the communion and interest in one image of God." consider John 1:1-5 to be continued
This is the first quote & thought to digest. I found his preaching weighty and profound because to apply it to life in all its minute details, takes great grace, knowledge, wisdom, and power that comes alone from God in and through Jesus Christ by an abiding vital union in the Vine.
For thousands of years homosexuality was treated as an abominable crime and abnormal. Today politicians, judges and bureaucrats running the society and our communities now criminalise history and the normal mind set of millions of people who lived in previous centuries.
It seems incredulous that something so obviously abnormal and wrong should be sanitized by government and judiciary and the original meaning of it changed to force the people to change moral standards and accept it.
Can this happen in society with paedophilia? Probably.
It can only be Satan's evil influence over man which brings society to this sorry pass. But what that demonstrates is Satan's active and regular input into mankind. Even though those poor fools cannot believe he exists.
2Cor 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Here I go again. I thought he was married with a family. Hopefully his children will learn from this. Gays just keep on banging at Lot's door. The righteous have learned from that event; that is, to take a stand for the glory of our God who is holy, ready, and willing to forgive. However, those who find His words "stout" will not understand why the piercing. Many gays are vehement in their determination to justify their sin.
Great Sermon! Dear Richard,
Our country,Singapore has lost a great Prime Minister, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. He died on 23 March 2015.
US former president, Mr. Bill Clinton and Mr. Henry Kissinger attended his wake.
Mr. Lee declared that he is a agnostic.
He served Singapore for 50 years.
Do you think God will save him from hell.
Appreciate your reply.

Deak's family I am looking for an old friend of mine. His name is Ron Deak. Could you please have him contact me at 845-334-7318 office or 845-625-9948 cell?
I also would like to visit the assembly in the near future.
Great Sermon! This is for the "Christian" who is living a lifestyle of lawlessness and calling it living under grace. And for the one who is puffed up about not living like they belong to the world. Above all, it's for someone like me, who can focus on my own point of views about things rather than the perfect point of view of God.
