Unprofitable,we still sacrifice our children even with anti-abortionists. My argument is not flawed. This nation started a radical decline a long time ago before transgenderism was an issue. And shame on the rest of you for judging outwardly. All of us were ugly inside and out before Christ changed us. The man is in sin and lost. What do you expect? At least he has clothes on...probably a lot more than some people wear on some of the favorite television programs of Christians.
What was wrong with posting "Thou shalt not kill"? The writer of the article uses very odd phraseology in regards what is deemed a Christian company when they wrote "KFC is getting killed by..." Or did you miss that,moderator?
Jesus is the answer but it's difficult to convince the populace that morals matter when under judgment. This is just the latest development of a long time existing problem. It's just that now we are really disturbed by a specific abomination rather than the many others which preceded it. Last check,we're still murdering babies and sacrificing our children. Why are we shocked?
No one said that they were slandering the new wine. Lay off the booze people. The people were slandering the disciples. Shame on you for suggesting/slandering me in regards to transgenderism just because I use better judgment in not sharing personal information with people like you. Good advice for children: Avoid the boozers. They have poor judgment and lack discernment. And woe to the children of the boozers. Hopefully,you will see the foolishness of ingesting intoxicants and steer away from them. If you do get addicted to something in the future,don't let your hypocritical parents shirk the responsibility of setting their bad pattern. You are responsible but they were bad role models. It would also benefit some on here to have a better understanding of words like pharisee as well. They will be the first ones to jump down the throats of the potheads but don't say anything against their choice drug.
It would help to qualify the term "Sabbath". It's difficult to take an accurate survey unless everyone is on the same page in regards to that which is asked. Regardless,I would think that no one keeps it in the way in which the OT Jews were instructed.
And,for all the misjudgment,Observer has yet to admit that his Scripture was misapplied. Oh yeah,s c has never disclosed gender. I don't know you,Observer, and you don't know me. And that is preferable.
@ Observer, sarcasm as in context. That's how it fits very nicely. And I don't see anywhere where B. Mc. has claimed to be the only one who is able to understand the Bible. Her comments are always very gracious. She is more Christ-like in this regard. Of course,discernment and understanding would be necessary for one to see this. If one can't understand when people are slandering and being sarcastic in the text of Scriptures,they may not be too perceptive when discerning others either. After reading your posts,I might lay off the glass of wine,Observer.
Yes,Observer,like how "new wine" is used in the Scripture which you provided. Clearly,they were being sarcastic and so you make my point. The new wine is representative of the new and better covenant. ...no coincidence that it was the first recorded miracle. How sad that some of you are so enamored with your intoxicants that you fail to be clear on how "wine" is used throughout the Bible. Only,if it is not alcohol every time,can the Bible be consistent.
I personally know a few Christians who were able to quit drinking instantly when asking God. These people drank heavily as well. ...must be true, Whom the Son sets free is free indeed." Perception,which can only be given by God,is key. The reality of those things by which we are ensnared always trumps the deception by which we are duped. If we are drawn to things which are not good for us then it's just because we don't have a clear perception of them. A cure for those who are drawn away by their lusts is to have to get that which they desire. God often allows for just that. No one who gets what they shouldn't have had but thought that they wanted is ever happy for any length of time.
The wine which makes the heart merry is not alcohol. The words "oil","wine" and "bread" all have significance in the Bible. A study on the phrase "new wine" in the Bible would help. Trying to use this Scripture in order to support alcoholic wine is lame. Again,it is interesting how some will interpret "wine" in the Bible depending on their proclivity. Do you also suppose that Christ created gallons and gallons more of alcohol at the wedding feast after which the attendants had already well drunk?
Maybe we should have been concerned a lot earlier about what takes place at colleges. The drinking and debauchery along with the atheistic ideas crammed down the throats of our children/young adults wasn't enough? This is just a subsequent issue which is of no surprise given the course that we're on in this country. It is interesting how bad it has to get before anyone really gets zealous over the issues. Sodomy/gender confusion,at least,serve as to push some buttons. In reality,they are just to our shame. Sin always creeps in subtly. When we ignore it and it has taken over,it then takes something which/who we can easily blame (transgenderism and sodomites)to turn a blind eye to our own neglect with other issues. We dropped the ball a long,long time ago. We are ,at least,not liking our chastisement.
