Tried to access story but was not able too. I often think when safari can't open the search page it's because the narrative of the day's news cycle was upended. Sort of like when in the Soviet Union days and when a dear leader died and the radio or television was interrupted with the Tvhaikovsky pathetique symphony. I mean look who runs the majority search engines, people who have their price or have been bought. God be with this pastors family and bring justice swiftly to the killers.
Keep the faith, Get Real, many on here love you and I will put you on my prayer list. You are God's child and your name is written on the palm of His hand and we can't begin to understand how much God loves us.

One thing I noticed about the tragic killing of the young wife and mother- the racial makeup of perps and victim was not mentioned. Why is mention not avoided when it's the other way around?
"The Bible is our Final Authority and is not something that was intended to read like the Sunday paper nor a comic book. The Bible was Authored by an authoritative God Who hates sin and called homosexuals ‚Äúsodomites‚ÄĚ for a reason, that is, to associate the sin of homosexuality with the wicked city of Sodom, which God utterly destroyed with fire and brimstone as an EXAMPLE of what would happen to all the wicked, which definitely includes lesbians and homosexuals. Jude 1:7, ‚ÄúEven as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.‚ÄĚ
No wonder why you can't find the word ‚Äúsodomite‚ÄĚ in the NIV? Look it up in Deuteronomy 23:17, I Kings 14:24, 15:12, 22:46, II Kings 23:7. Do you think an avowed homosexual put her two cents in it? If so, what about ‚Äúthe accuracy‚ÄĚ everybody's talking about? Dr. Woudstra was the CHAIRMAN of the Old Testament committee and chose to remove the word ‚Äúsodomites‚ÄĚ from the Bible entirely. Woe unto the NIV translators and publishers!"
Maybe we need to weep for this Argentinean not knowing the basics of economics from learning the disastrous fascist policies of Peron. You would think he never read anything from the free market. Next thing you know, he will be talking about how this is the season of 'giving back.' Walter A. Williams, economist prof at George Mason University in Virginia, wrote an excellent article about the fallacy of this concept, frequently heard these days. He says the only people who should give back are those who stole something. People who have worked hard or risked money on their small businesses and had success, should not be penalized or told to give something back.
In 1975, the gay rights movement began to market the words ‚Äúgay‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúhomosexual‚ÄĚ to refer to an inborn character or to the identity of men and women with same-sex attractions and behaviors. Today, they have succeeded in redefining those words to suit their agenda in our culture. We in the body of Christ ‚ÄĒ and even ministries seeking to help those caught in homosexuality ‚ÄĒ regularly buy into that deceptive definition, often without thinking about it. How many times have we used the term ‚Äúgay,‚ÄĚ ‚Äúorientation,‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúex-gay‚ÄĚ to describe ourselves or someone else? Even in the church we talk about ministering to ‚Äúthe homosexual,‚ÄĚ immediately labeling an individual just as secular activists do. What Difference Does This Make? If we define homosexuality as an identity, an inborn characteristic, or a hormonal imbalance, there is no answer or hope. If, however, we call it what it really is ‚ÄĒ a struggle with sinful desires and behavior ‚ÄĒ then throughout Scripture we‚Äôre given ways to handle it.

1 Corinthians 6:9 KJV "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor *effeminate*, (malak√≥s) nor abusers of themselves with mankind (arsenoko√≠ts)"
'Effeminate' = malak√≥s, soft, i.e. fine (clothing); figuratively, a catamite:‚ÄĒeffeminate, soft.
'nor abusers of themselves with mankind' is the word = arsenoko√≠ts, a sodomite

Hey John, I had to go in the regular site to view the link, but took a look. Is that a painting? If so, I've never seen detail like that. Wow. Not as good as the bowl with a banana in it that you paint, but a close runner up.
1. Perhaps the number one myth about Bible translation is that a word-for-word translation is the best kind. 2. Similar to the first point is that a literal translation is the best version. In fact, this is sometimes just a spin on the first notion. 3. The King James Version is a literal translation. The preface to the KJV actually claims otherwise. 4. The King James Version is perfect. This myth continues to be promoted today, yet even the translators of the KJV were not sure on hundreds of occasions which rendering was best, allowing the reader to decide for himself. 5. The King James Version was hard to understand when it was first published. 6. There has never been an authorized revision of the KJV. 7. The Apocrypha are books found only in Roman Catholic Bibles. 8. Homosexuals influenced the translation of the NIV. 9. No translation can claim to be the word of God except the King James Bible. 10. Modern translations have removed words and verses from the Bible. 11. Essential doctrines are in jeopardy in modern translations. 12. ‚ÄúYoung woman‚ÄĚ in the RSV‚Äôs translation of Isaiah 7.14 was due to liberal bias. etc. [Ran out of space!] ---Fifteen Myths about Bible Translation

I agree with you; he was not referring to professing Christians in his original post when he was referring to those male prostitutes. They didn't even have the NIV or any other reprobate translation. And my guess is Sodom and Gomorrah didn't have the NIV either. I wonder which translation of the OT they had back then?
I truly have a hard time understanding why folks just don't say, "I am KJVO and be done with it.
Jim, you're dancing around the subject. it has always been a pagan symbol, right there on SA over the cross, and is mentioned in Amos 5 and in Stephen's final words before he was martyred. A Messianic Jew has written a book on this matter. I linked you to a Torah website where they say the symbol did not come from Judaism (ie Torah Judaism).
and there is only one way to be saved, through Jesus Christ, does not the NT warn against endless genealogies? here I thought you believed in salvation by grace through faith? or are we adding to Christ, CHrist and paganism?
the semitic argument has nothing to do with this, its unlikely that any person here doesn't have some natural heritage to Abraham over thousands of years of heritage, this has to do with a viewpoint that god is shekinah female and that Jesus is in h@des.
...as represented by the 666 symbol above positioned over the cross.
Wikipedia wrote: nearly two centuries later, Jeremy Bentham, in an unpublished manuscript, denounced James as a hypocrite after his crackdown: "[James I], if he be the author of that first article of the works which bear his name, and which indeed were owned by him, reckons this practise among the few offences which no Sovereign ever ought to pardon. This must needs seem rather extraordinary to those who have a notion that a pardon in this case is what he himself, had he been a subject, might have stood in need of."
Only the modern versions speak plainly about homosexuality,

Get Real, the Lord knows your future, and you are in his hand. Keep up hope, keep up prayer, keep up praise to him. He has purchased you, and you are not your own. Father has given you as a gift to his Son (John 17), so rejoice when you are able, and sit silently before him when you are not able. I'm sure that there are many on here who will also add our prayers to your own. You are not alone.

Indeed, brother! That is most interesting, and perfectly logical. Thanks for sharing that snippet.
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone [or sulphur] and fire from the LORD out of heaven; (Genesis 19:24 KJV)
I think it shows that the perversion of sodomy is different from all other sins, in that it should have attracted such a degree of wrath from the Lord God Almighty. The true Christian church must always stand against this dreadful sin, never compromising.
