I doubt it. But are you aware that the gay community treats that three-letter-word the way a Jewish person perceives being called the K-word, or a black person the N-word? Can you see how crafty the queer community has become? I'm reminded of the Matthew Shepard murder story that the LGBTQ community seem to grab onto and embrace in its bosom. And I was thinking, just because this young man was murdered in such a grisly way doesn't automatically make him a saint, or even worthy of any such deference. If anything, I can see that case as a judgment from the LORD and a warning to others who embrace homosexuality. Sorry if I'm getting too off-topic, but I just felt it incumbent upon me to mention this.
Isn't it true that about nine out of ten times, Katy Perry's songs glorify sexual immorality? I'm a little perplexed as to why Ham's statement aroused publicity like it did. Is it that America is that moonstruck over Perry!? It sounds like it! At any rate, I validate Ken Ham for telling the truth.
It's funny how earlier tonight, I was feeling sorry for myself in that I have a job that doesn't pay that well, doesn't feel like work, etc. But now, after reading the article, I thank GOD that I am a man who is employed full time.
1.) Donald Sutherland, whoever that is, has a very distorted understanding of the person of Jesus Christ. And 2.) If Jennifer Lawrence was really following Christ, she wouldn't agree to dress like a whore for the whole world to see, nor would she sign up for blasphemous movies and/or TV shows.
Reading the article and the comments that pertain to it, I find myself not convinced that Biebs really understands the sacrament of baptism. I also have a bad feeling it's just another publicity stunt as it were. However, I could be wrong in my assumptions...
The contents of this article come as no surprise to me. Because of the extraordinary nature of Matthew Shepard's murder (and I'm sure Shepard suffered extraordinarily under the attack), I can see why gay advocates would exalt Shepard as the homosexual messiah, if you will. Neither does it surprise me that the men responsible were fellow homosexuals and fellow druggies. If anything, this narrative speaks volumes about the vices that come with a homosexual lifestyle.
Amen, Sister. I see a heart of repentance as I read this. I'm just sorry that certain pro-lifers think it necessary to twist the knife inside of you. Just know that what they are doing is not approved of by the God of the Bible.
Here's an even better question: why do so many born-again, spirit-filled Christian women condone other women who put their bodies on display? You see it on social media websites constantly. Any thoughts?
Well, I'm a young man in my late 20s, and I earnestly want to be married and start a family, but right now, I have no opportunities to meet young Christian women (because where I live, almost all the young Christian women are already married or heading in that direction with another guy).

For all we know, that could well have been the Holy Spirit. I realize that many subscribers to SermonAudio would object to "God told me..." language and make a big issue of that phrase per se, but I see nothing in your statement that contradicts the spirit of Scripture. In fact, if I may piggyback on your comment, Jesus did not dialogue with Satan while being tempted in the wilderness. He quoted Scriptures in their proper context-- that is how he triumphed over the enemy's lies.
Tonight I read Psalm 37, and I feel it's appropriate to share verses 7 through 9:
"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land."
In addition, I have seen more than one young woman who does NOT look 'frumpy and dumpy' in some very modest swimwear-- some of whom are gorgeous in appearance. True, it's not the majority of young women.
Also, immodesty in dress does not end at the beach. And like I said earlier, modesty also has to do with behavior. I'm sure you all can relate to what I'm speaking about.
