A day after electing their first African-American president in a historic move that strives to erase its legacy of racism, Southern Baptists passed a resolution opposing the idea that same-sex marriage is a civil rights issue.
Thousands of delegates at the denomination's annual meeting in New Orleans on Wednesday were nearly unanimous in their support for the resolution that affirms their belief that marriage is "the exclusive union of one man and one woman" and that "all sexual behavior outside of marriage is sinful."...
Of course we can work together with Catholics, just like we can with Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and even law-abiding atheists and Muslims in secular work and politics. This doesn't mean we think for example any of them are Christians, because remember, Christian and Catholics -- never together!. We should always be ready to explain to them about the The Pope and the Papacy and why it and the priesthood is completely unbiblical, and they will forever burn in hell unless they renounce the Romish Church, even Is A Catholic Christian An Oxymoron? has been turned into printed flyers which you can pass out to Catholics to help them leave Catholicism and come to Christianity.
"It's [The HHS Contraception Mandate] compulsory participation in the sexual revolution ... one that in many ways will trump the American Revolution." -Rev. Dr. Richard Land, President of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission
"During his weekly ‚ÄúRichard Land Live‚ÄĚ radio broadcast ... [he] said opposition to things like the Obama administration‚Äôs contraception mandate and support for same-sex marriage is uniting Catholics and conservative evangelicals across their theological divide."
Qs are the As wrote: Now that divorce is an SBC norm, by what moral authority can they continue to demand divorce
Divorce and adultery have been around for thousands of years. If you read the Bible you would know that and perhaps you wouldn't be such a hypocrite.
The real scourge in church today is the same old heretical idolatrous teachings which have been around for millennia.
The Roman Catholics are the worst offenders and are the modern pharisees. Dump God and worship dead carcass's and pictures of sinners. In other words invent your own religion, your own image of God and write your own bible, which is what the papists have been doing for centuries.
Ezek 16:35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD: 36 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them;"
"The argument against Christianity today [in support of gay marriage] is not epistemological but moral. Christianity is rejected not because it is badly argued, or untrue, but because it is evil." -John Piper (June 22, 2012)
Has there ever even been a war that could meet the grueling demands of the Just War Theory?
In concert, what bad marriage could ever meet the high demands of a comparable Just Divorce Theory?
Are these really that dissimilar?
Now that divorce is an SBC norm, by what moral authority can they continue to demand divorce, remarriage and adultery as "civil rights" but deny the gay guys their day at their sullied altar? Can someone find a machete to cut through this hypocrisy?
"Southern Baptists passed a resolution opposing the idea that same-sex marriage is a civil rights issue."
Its not about "Rights" it is about moral decline, anti-Christian attacks by disgusting sinful UNnatural activities in humanity and as God recorded it is about the abomination.
Those who allow this abomination to have any credibility in society - Ditch the Bible - Keep the lust!!
"Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is AGAINST NATURE: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman..."
