I hadn't, so Googled it and there it was in all its glory with the sodomites kissing and taking pictures in the foreground. Never thought I'd see the say. Man, oh man.
Go to christian-heritage-news.com/ and see a Biblical response to the homosexual "celebration rainbow flag". It is a blog maintained by sister Angela Wittman.
Frank wrote: I think the main problem with Christâ€™s church and with society is the rise of feminism, especially evangelical feminism. Feminism has been the driving force for all liberal issues that have arisen. Feminism or course entered into the false professing church and our society pretty easily, but it had to disguise itself as a Trojan horse to get into the genuine church of our Lord. It became unkind and unchristian for men to speak out against women and their changing goals and agendas. The scriptures had to be dummied down and reinterpreted by our church leaders. In they want to keep their jobs, they had better cater to the evangelical feminist in their midst. Now here is where I will in general agree with Allie; it was men who allowed this and therefore they are guiltier than the women who wanted it. Eve was deceived, but Adam wasnâ€™t; same principle exists today and that makes men more culpable than women. Feminism in the genuine church can be defeated and reversed, but in our culture it is permanent and cannot be undone. It will only get worse.
These are days when we need men of principle, men who can put their foot down and keep it down, men who cannot be turned aside. They call this firmness 'bigotry, it is, however, only another name for Christian manliness! If you dare to do right and face a frowning world,.....you shall have God's commendation. "Well done, good and faithful servant".

Psalm 99:1 The times look awfully dark indeed; and as the clouds grow thicker--the stupidity of the nation seems proportionally to increase. If the Lord had not a remnant here, I would have very formidable apprehensions. But He loves His redeemed children; some are sighing and mourning before Him, and I am sure He hears their sighs, and sees their tears. I trust there is mercy in store for us at the bottom; but I expect a shaking time before things get into a right channel--before we are humbled, and are taught to give Him the glory. The state of the nation, the state of the churches--both are deplorable! Those who should be praying--are disputing and fighting among themselves! Alas! how many professors are more concerned for the mistakes of government--than for their own sins! "Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns!" Revelation 19:6 John Newton
Mr. McCausland, I am a daughter of the Living God, married to a godly man and submitted to my Lord and husband as commanded in Scripture. My husband and myself study the Bible daily together and privately...he is most capable of deciding what biblical guidelines we are to follow in obeying and honoring our Lord. We do however take issue with those that go beyond their bounds and have their own particular interpretation of Scripture, and insist on foisting it upon others.... I have perceived that to be the case among some who post on this site. May we all remember that and let the Spirit of the Lord do His sanctifying work in each of His own. A good day to you, sir.
S C.. I will give you an example of legalism.. A church that forbade women to wear slacks disciplined a lady for wearing them at her own home while being on a ladder cleaning out the gutters..an elder of the "church" stopped by when she was about her business. This is not an isolated incident, I know of many other things that I have personally witnessed in this sort of bondage.. No thanks...not for me. Not biblical.
I agree with your thoughts John. In wrapping up this post...I would add that may we all examine our hearts--where propriety begins--what surgeries has the Holy Spirit already performed there? May we be concerned of the aspects of a spiritual wardrobe and therefore as the elect of God put on bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering....... While not neglecting our outward appearance to reflect who we are in Christ Jesus our Lord. Blessings in the Beloved, fellow Pilgrim.
1 Corinthians 1:30.... Judicially a Christian is perfect in Christ. Practically is a daily battle.Galations 5:17. ----- The issue seems to be when other Christians take it upon themselves to decide what is the standard to be practiced by others in matters of apparel, food, drink, hair length for women, beards for men etc. Christan liberty has then been changed to rules that they decide must be kept for their own particular shibboleth.
Oh my John....you said it so well. That was what I was trying to convey, but you spelled it out. Genuine born-again folk wanting to please their Lord and Saviour are such a joy to be around...legalists who are much concerned with externals and foisting them on everyone else...not so much.
