But Jim, Democrats are forcing people to pay for abortion(murder) and are not protecting the rights of the children. They may not force women to have abortions yet, but they advocate for the right to murder children. It's disgusting.
I'm not sure what "redneck theology" is supposed to mean. Does that mean not making the sinner feel uncomfortable about their wrong doing? Let's not be straight forward about what God says because it might make sodomites uncomfortable! Now I hear people saying we are worshiping scripture above Jesus if you quote scripture to point out homosexuality is a sin.
SteveR... It's not called a hexgram, it's a hexagram. The root "hexa" means six. The hexagram is a six sided shape. It has been used by witches, but that isn't why the State of Israel chose to use it on their flag.
SteveR... Do you have proof the star of David is the same star mentioned in Amos? Does that mean the U.S. is 50 times as bad because it has 50 stars on it's flag? I also wonder if Tim Cook has some kind of religious affiliation to even make mention of God or if it's just his way of waving his fist at Him?
Freely sharing what you have to give to those in need is one thing. Being forced to give to those who will not work is another. I wonder how many of the poor the Pope could help by selling off alot of the churches assets?
Makes me wonder why the state is involved with a religious ceremony at all. Is marriage a God ordained institution? Then why is the state involved and why have unbelievers, non church members, and adulterers been allowed to marry to begin with? Yet, God says that if a woman divorces and remarries she has committed adultery. So there is an allowance for at least remarriage, as wrong as it might be. So should there be an allowance for say two women to marry, as wrong as it may be?
The problem with Calvinism is it is a philosophy of fatalism dressed up in Christianity. It contradictory of the love of God for the world and makes Him appear unjust by exercising wrath on a group of people who supposedly have an irresistible urge to not believe in Him, no fault of their own. The fault only lays on Adam. God's love for the select is made out to be a whimsical choice.
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
Adultery has been accepted within the church without much push back at all. How much more will homosexuality be accepted with all of the LGBT groups out there promoting that behavior? One can imagine pastors saying, "Well, it's wrong however God forgives and wouldn't want anybody living alone for the rest of their lives. We mustn't be Pharisees about it!"
Good article! I find the worship at my church to be to worldly and actually causes division. There is a more "traditional" service in one building and then a more loud and rocked out service in another building with the preaching watched by giant screens from the "traditional" service right next door.
