Christopher,very well stated except it all boils down to a sin problem. Maybe they could take all of the confederate flags and cover up the naked people who like to attend the races wearing their short shorts and such...now that would be a very fine use for a flag.
Maybe they misspell their name. Instead of "hillsong" maybe it's supposed to be "hell song". Unless Levin was being physically disruptive (I don't know,let's say like all of those looters on call that seem to come out of the woodwork) then she should have been left alone. Hillsong must be afraid of the truth that Levin might reveal. Don't they know that God will expose them from the rooftops anyway? Looters and vandals should get punished/arrested,not concerned people.
1517,I just heard about a sodomite couple seeking divorce. This is of no surprise,at all...you probably saw it coming down the pike too. As far as employment and housing...easy enough to work around. For instance,where I live,the policy is simply that if 2 people are married,they can apply using just one application but if they are not married then they each have to pay for an application. Just because one acknowledges what a state does in regards to business,does not mean that one is compromising. How many people have been living together in apartments and rental properties before the onslaught of the homosexual agenda? Besides that,how many sodomites have been living together "uncommitted" at such? Things really haven't changed all that much.We just have sodomites calling their commitments "marriage". We have been accepting that "white is black" and "black is white" in this country for a very long time...except where it matters least as far as melanin...then we're all over what is "black" and what is "white". But when it comes to what is truth,we have been quite tolerant.
Yes,Christopher. I might ask what world she's been living in. So...Sharpton,Jackson and the rest haven't taken the spotlight to respond? Maybe they're on vacation. May the Lord prepare this woman's heart so that she may know Him and then be able to discern who the true enemies are.
The UN may want to rethink that one. They wouldn't want to possibly interfere with the "rights" of the sadomasochists betwixt one another or,conceivably,eliminate all of those twisted public displays of sodomite bondage acts during parades and such. (please take in the sarcastic vein that this is written). Seriously though,those could be potential issues.
No concern,Christopher. "You do not" has a twisted notion of what constitutes "sin" as if naked women were of none effect. "You do not" is blind to the fact that is because we are not so bothered by scantily clad people in this country (according to their assessment) that we are in the predicament that we find ourselves now with businesses closing,etc.
I agree,BRF. No wonder Solomon was lamenting. Woe to the man who marries more than one wife. Anyone else see a disaster stewing in the pot? I just wonder how long that trend (polygamy) would last.My guess would be for "not long".
US,the problem is that many Christians may take the praise dancers to task but also will watch their carnal programs. I just don't see as much outrage over so many other sins like abortion and immodesty as I do with the homosexual agenda and I know of many who will be parked in front of their tv sets for pro football but will also be the first ones crying about sodomites. If high profile Christians or professing Christians wish to gain a lot of publicity and dupe Christians into thinking that, though they could be poster boys for ecumenism (which is of more concern than committing sodomites,)they share the same values, all they have to do is speak out against it. Homosexuality is a hot button for all Christians and anyone who wants to get a stir or support from other Christians can readily push it. We need to consider the source. What is FG now? the contemporary "E.F. Hutton"? If Graham wants to make a real impression amongst Christians,he could start by dropping his support for the RC church.
But it is pertinent...contrasting the zeal against one sin against the others that are very prolific which have paved the way for Judgment by which the sin of homosexuality is being used against those who place less significance on those sins such as baby murder to be relevant is the whole point! Don't cry about committing sodomites unless you are equally grieved by all of the other sins which,through neglect and tolerance,have allowed for the homosexual agenda to prevail. God has finally got our attention. Figure it out.
If all the "hecklers" did was say "shame on you"... After all,Joel Osteen assaults millions with his false gospel on a regular basis. ...and gets paid for it. Of course,Joel still didn't get the message and he gets to play the victim and win the sympathy of many besides. Maybe he'll get sick of all his money and "fame" and see the futility of his "best life now" and actually get to know the One Who can give Him a better life eternally.
Who's accusing and mocking the brethren,pen(to the 4th power)ed? Are you accusing a fellow? brethren? And my "laundry list" of sins should be a concern to you as long as they line up with God's. Is this,yet another,one of your loving posts?
Obama is our just desserts for the path that we chose a long time ago. Homosexuality is just the latest manifestation. God allowed Obama to do this and God is still in control. Maybe we're the ones who aren't. I can't help but note the absolute zeal against sodomy and how the objection to most every other pet sexual sin in this country pales in comparison. ...seems like judgment to me against the nation. I wonder whether or not any Christian bakers ever sold goods to abortionists. Of course,they wouldn't be asking for abortion cakes but does anyone else see the disparity? We should be more outraged over sexual sins,illegitimate babies and murdered babies than sodomites who want to "commit" and call it marriage. Marriage is still just between a man and a woman. Remember they tried to steal the rainbow and misuse the word "gay". Why does everyone go along? The rainbow is a symbol of God's covenant and "gay" actually means "cheerful"...it's in the Bible...why get upset over false ideals? And why not take back the rainbow and the word "gay". Sodomites getting "married" according to our government is ultimately a mute point. Hopefully,it'll,at least,sober us up.
I don't find the church being legalistic in terms of the things that you had listed,MS. I think that the Bible clarifies a lot of those issues. What I do find,however,is the church often times twisting freedom into opportunity to sin. It's not all that complicated when one studies the Bible though I will grant you,that since we have been so conditioned into our culture,it may seem foreign to us.
