This is just to set an example,when Homosexuals want something from you you had better give it up,a Christian or anyone opposed to Homosexuality should not have to deal with Homosexuals in any way if they choose not to.
Homosexuals are one of the many useful idiots that have been used to gain power and control over America by the left,they cut a deal with the left,you cut a swath through society for us and force people to our will and we will vote for you in every election....the joke is on them when the go from being useful idiots to useless idiots,then they along with others will be tossed out to fend for themselves and their "rights" won't matter anymore.
These situations occur because the church does not police it's self,now this of course is unbiblical but who seems to care about that anymore...many Christians complain about how the world views them,God said that the only legitimate persecution is that which comes form holiness and righteousness born out of a loyalty to God yet most people's opinions about Christianity in general and preachers in particular are formed by hypocrisy in either promoting a lifestyle they don't live or using the gospel for worldly gain.... I rarely hear anyone speak against Christianity because those who claim to follow it are holy,rightous or exhibit any kind of sacrifice to spread the gospel....it is situations like this with mansions,in this case his and her's,private jets and luxurious lifestyles that give atheist,agnostics and all other enemies of gospel all the ammo they need....one must remember that this money came from people who are not rich and in many cases are so poor and desperate that they bought into the lies and sent the last few dollars they had....this is biblical Christianity ????
God does not command us to trust anyone but him,my trust in regard to others is mine to give or withhold,it is not owed anyone and anyone who is offended by my caution I don't deal with...it has been my experience that if you meet someone and they tell you how honest they are that usually winds up being the first lie they tell you.
This guy thinks the free market is tyranny and oppressive government is freedom I guess,like any good socialist with big plans for other people's money he leaves out the other reasons for poverty,things like communist/socialist/Marxist dictators who oppress the people and take all the wealth for themselves while the people with no jobs or industry are left to starve....he is just another smiling man telling people what they want to hear.
Abortion is one issue that illustrates the total depravity of Man/Woman doctrine better than any other,the winding and twisting paths of justification and excuse,the hypocrisy of the logic and reason applied to it is like no other.
One example being states where someone can be charged with murder for causing the death of an unborn child the mother could have legally killed the same day,another being the difference between the way a woman is treated for killing an unborn child and a man is treated for doing harm to or killing a child when both are guilty of the same thing
Is it any surprise that the pope and atheistic progressive liberals speak with the same voice,he denounces the free market which has lifted millions out of poverty but its not "fair" because it didn't lift everyone out,typical utopia talk that will never happen.....and of course more "mother earth" nonsense.
He makes excuses for abortion and blames others for not making woman's choices to have sex more accommodating and convenient because it is our job to follow along behind them and clean up and pay for the mess they make of their lives,he even mentions rape which accounts for about .01% of all abortions....and of course he tip toes around Homosexuality....to sum it up some people have nothing but rights while others have nothing but responabilities.
When the new world order comes to pass he,if he lives long enough will be right there at its side ready to help bring it in.
John UK wrote: John Y, the Lord Jesus does not save people because they "meet the requirement". He saves because he loves. I don't know why he loves sinners, but he does. And he is the Good Shepherd who gives his life for the sheep. He is the Good Shepherd who seeks out his lost sheep. Salvation is all of him: he convicts of sin, and he brings the peace of knowing sins forgiven. He takes away the old stony heart, and replaces it with a soft heart. Salvation is of the Lord, not of yourself. When the Lord saves, you are saved, and the only "requirement" is that HE has lived a perfect life for your justification, and HE has died in the place of sinners, that God might show mercy and forgive. Christianity is about Christ. Not you, nor your brother, nor your brother's pastor. Now if you were to post some good things about Jesus Christ the Lord, instead of behaving like a parrot with all your repetition, you may find it easier to communicate on these forums.
If that were true then the bible would not tell us to count the cost of discipleship and being a Christian and follower of Jesus or to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith,the spirit of rebellion and lawlessness vigourosly resist anything that smacks of submission or obedience.
Yes God is in control,God was in control when that storm hit the Phillipines and those Tornados tore through the Midwest..just because God is in control does not mean that great misery and suffering does not come to many,those unaffected tend to have a more flippant attitude however.
Just more apostate nonsense,we will win the world by being it's best friend that provides every excuse....those who suggest,advocate and support friendship with the world are..... well,you know....friends of the world
Liberals have worked hard to get power,Conservatives made it pretty easy but the liberals had to be patient but now that they are in power and running things and we can expect more victory laps like this,conservatives are naÃ¯ve and somewhat arrogant and politically inept and are pretty much finished.
There is no answer for suffering other than we live in a fallen world of sin,that is realy the only answer God has given us...Mr Turner is a very wealthy man who gets things on his terms...it will not be that way with God,the just will live by faith not answers.
