Unprofitable Servant, I think I'll back you up here on your point, because with the pressures to conform to the world, I really don't see compromisers making a big fuss for much longer. if there is any kind of pressure to hypocrisy it will be to say they are "saved" but are ok with this kind of perversion. so I think its best to do the right thing on all matters, I really don't need to be looking back at naysayers or hypocrites, there will always be them. and by the way, I know plenty of Christians who walk the walk in these matters and have good discernment, and many of those are right here on SA.
"The Anti-Defamation League has a longstanding commitment to protecting civil rights, and has been a key partner in advancing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) rights. At the federal, state, and local levels, ADL has advocated in support of anti-discrimination statutes, for strong and inclusive hate crime and bullying prevention laws, and for marriage equality"
Mourner, what a beautiful word. yes, we are one people in Christ.
agenda 21-- be homosexual and do not have children, do not know the land or have roots or culture outside of the elite run gov, austerity while megacorporations pollute the earth for the useless eaters (human cattle) as they must be filled with synthetic foods and drugs.
in complete opposition to the biblical model which is...
agrarian society, bonded young families with children, simple lives with thanksgiving to their Creator, cycle of life recognized, and community trading/bartering
an oligarchy in which they own the world and sublease the cities for the dependent masses, communism becomes a means to an end.
should Christians be "green"? yes. not the perverted new order green which means shortening life expectancies, but green as in being good stewards of the world that God has given us.
Fukushima poisons the seas and the land, while the poisoners teach the children to feel guilty about breathing.
Christopher, one thing that has helped my family regarding Romans 11 is read Romans 9-11 in context over and over again, trying to eliminate the commentaries and letting the Holy Spirit teach through the reading of the Word.
lots of straw man arguments going on here. I suspect its easier to feel like a good tax payer when one is forced to bow to the rainbow.
not about taxes -assemblies are not bound, love offerings would be listed as income and would be filed.
this is about who owns the church.
if this rainbow movement becomes the law of the land then 501c3 institutions are obligated to it as their moral code,
as they signed their names to submit to the fairness (nondiscrimination) clause.
This means that a sodomite can show up to a fellowship and demand marriage, free access to the nursery, in fact positions in the church. And if the pastor says no, he is responsible for hate crime because he's discriminating and being immoral by refusing to participate in the sodomite culture.
let's see how our 501c3 lawyers are going to wrestle with this reality, after they've said signing the ownership of Christ's blood bought saints to the banking system was good.
can't say this is enjoyable.
All those who talked of giving all to Caesar per the Hitlerian version of Romans 13 are about to be held to their own teachings.
Mike you have a point, but I think legally speaking you'd have to shut down the institution. Then a free assembly would come in. Here's praying you are right.
I wonder if the softies here know what its like to be physically assaulted by sodomites or to live among them. some are highly effeminate but many are sadomasochistic aggressors.
So living with this reality (I must not have had enough time hiding behind the four walls of the church), it is interesting watching the intellectual maneuvering around this.
So yes, maybe I'll be willing to bake a cake, but should a photographer be willing to take intimate pictures at their wedding, what if they have a porn fest beforehand? I'm not trying to be perverse here, but the real world is perverse folks!
You go back to Roman times when the man-boy evils were going on, the father figure would decide if he liked the newborn from his wife or not, and if not the baby was left on the heap outside to die. They carried symbols on their necks, this was normal.
This is what I'll say to the softies, you better have a line, because Sodom men were going house to house, and they have no borders, no respect... I say this as a movement, I know there are nicely demeanored people trapped in this lifestyle, I've known many who not hurt others, but hurt themselves.
There has to be a point not to participate in the evils of men, I say this becse most pastors won't. Get right w/ God, prepare!
Title: "Depopulation test run? 75% of children who received vaccines in Mexican town now dead or hospitalized"
"Tetanus vaccines given to millions of young women in Kenya have been confirmed by laboratories to contain a sterilization chemical that causes miscarriages, reports the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, a pro-vaccine organization.
"A whopping 2.3 million young girls and women are in the process of being given the vaccine, pushed by UNICEF and the World Health Organization.
"We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen," Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSite News"
that's right KK! they hide from the power of God and yet it is the power of God that saves us from our iniquities! Praise be to Christ that pulled us from the miry clay and gave us new life in Him. Blessed are the overcomers. Leaders can gain the whole world momentarily but lose their souls. They too must repent, because the things of this world are passing away, and how foolish to gain the who world but lose your soul!
Praying that the voice of these brave saints will be heard. I have seen people overcome this lifestyle simply by being washed anew in Christ and following Him. God cleans up the lives of those who follow Him.
I guess they don't know about sanctification. Those who walk with Christ know what it is like to be cleansed and called unto a different way of life. This is not foreign to us, but they do not know because they have yet to have this kind of encounter with Almighty God! But if they pray to Him and ask Him to open their eyes, according to the Word, which is Christ, they can be saved as well.
Jim, reminds of the moment when the Nazis entered corrie ten boom's house and berated her father for the fact that they had hid innocent Jewish folks from the gestapo in their house. her father said that he must follow the law unless it conflicted with the higher law of God. for him, it was letting innocent people to be taken off to concentration camps, he knew he would be sinning against his heavenly Father to participate with evil. now what are you worried about? people speeding. well no duh, slow down. isn't having concern for one's neighbor written down somewhere?
This is true and us is at the 38th parallel, the DMZ with live weapons waiting to cross over if necessary as has been the situation for the last 50 plus years. the Korean war never ended. the Koreans to the north have been starved out for generations in this huge cult, closed nation and many risk their lives to bring the gospel. they are a loved people, even though they may feel forgotten. and the Koreans to the south are great suppliers to the world of missionaries of the gospel.
