If all human beings should have the right to marry (or simply be with) the one they love, as proponents of same-sex â€śmarriageâ€ť constantly tell us, then why shouldnâ€™t adult, incestuous couples enjoy that same â€śrightâ€ť? Hollywood director Nick Cassavetes is the latest to say, â€śWhy not?â€ť, and I for one am not the least bit surprised.
Simply stated, with the public endorsement of same-sex relationships, the endorsement (or at least acceptance) of consensual, adult, incestuous relationships is inevitable. Consider the following:
Already in April, 2007, Time magazine featured a major article entitled, â€śShould Incest Be Legal?â€ť The article noted that critics of the Supreme Courtâ€™s Lawrence v. Texas ruling in 2003, which struck down Texasâ€™ anti-sodomy law, argued that the ruling would lead to attempts to legalize same-sex â€śmarriageâ€ť and polygamy. â€śIt turns out,â€ť Time noted, â€śthat the critics were...

I'll leave you to do some digging. For full disclosure I was once a pre trib rapture guy but later felt that the weight of the scriptures leaned towards post trib or amillenial
Russ, I agree fully with you regarding Hebrews 11:13-16. I am simply a stranger and an alien in this world. That may not solve all our problems, but it sure helps! But, I do know this with certainty; one day all the evil in this world will be gone and done away with when my Lord returns.
I also agree with you regarding pre-trib. The only way they can come up with that is through extreme inference and by caring more about those who teach, then about "the Teacher". I started as a post-triber, then switched early to pre-trib because of my "peer" group, but then read the scriptures for myself and ended up as a post-triber for many many years now.
Jeremiah 17 says that anyone who trusts in man is cursed, and Psalm 118 tells us to trust in God rather than put our confidence in man. On the other hand, also in the Old Testament, the Hebrews in exile were told to plant trees, vineyards, etc and seek the good of their exile country. One of their prophets was told to buy lands though the real estate market was in the dumps. I don't think we have to "wear our religion on our sleeves" to enter into an intelligent conversation about why same-sex marriage is bad for the culture (e.g. see Europe's declining culture of marriage) or why re-electing the current President, son-of-a-white-woman, is not a good thing for the country. Now, excuse me while I get back to eating my pork Bar-B-Q sandwich (a la Isaiah 65:4).
1.Oh forgot this, amillenial and post-tri is a RCI teaching. 2. And it is stealing from the Jews, the tribulation is for the Jew(or Jacob's trouble) so that they will turn to Jesus as their Messianic 3. It a teaching that does not gives God the glory, it give us the glory of surviving the tribulation(which is to me akin to the teaching that we can lose our salvation.
5b. we need to give a accounted of what we said, did, and not dod, ect., that why Christen don't want the pre-trib, because they don't want to be judge and lost rewards. 6.And what about 2 Thess 4:14-18, why do we(or those who are alive) need to caught to Jesus when he is coming down to get his throne. 7. There is a different between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God, we are members of the spiritual kingdom of God, the phyial kingdom of heaven will come when Jesus comes down to take his rightful throne. 8. When God saved Noah he use a ark, with Lot he took them out, with use he will take us out, with the Jew they will run to Sailapeacha(we commonly believe, and please do correct me on the spelling, please), and the nation who protect them will get God protection when they cry out to him(Josh 10:6-7)

The only reason the Republican party is more "godly" than the Democrat party is that they are running away from God at a slower rate than the Dems and therefore, relatively speaking, ARE in fact the "godly" party.
"For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?" (I Peter 4:17).
Perhaps the reason society at large is becoming increasingly wicked is because the church has failed to consistently preach all the counsel of God (Acts 20:27); many professing Christians fail to study to show themselves approved as well (II Timothy 2:15).
Most pastors, preachers, and Bible teachers are simply too spineless to preach against lust, fornication, divorce, and adultery (which includes falsely so-called "remarriage") to God's professing people. They would rather please men than be servants of Christ. It saddens me greatly.
1. I do believe that the left behind series is a piece of trash(tinder wood to be more corrected) 2. Amillenial is the mixing of God's phiyal and spiritual kingdoms. 3. Now with Matt 24, which is one of the most common one use against the pre-trid, who is Jesus talking about in verse 16? Those who are in Judaea, who are Jew, there is no individual salvation for the Gentiles in the tribulation, there only salvation for Gentile nations that protect the Jew(Matthew 25:31-46) 4. There where it proves we are in heaven Rev 12:10-12, after the war in heaven(and I am a military history freak) And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 5. Why do we need the pre-trid, because Jesus has to judge us all our works(1 Cor 3:12-15 and 2 Cor 5:10).. more to say...

KJV English Study it out thoroughly, especially Biblically in the context of God has told us the Truth of Creation (six literal days in Genesis), His covenant with Abraham and the nation of Israel, WRATH is for His unrepentant enemies, not the saved
It is pre-tribulation rapture that will fit and make sense in a 'literal' interpretation of the whole context of Scripture and God's promises both to the Church and to Israel (they are not the same), especially that we do not know the day or hour.
And when you have studied it out, praise God for the blessed hope of believers and tremble at the immenient return of Christ.
You are right, of course. To say that the repubs are the "Godly" party is wrong at best. Neither party is the answer. I'm afraid that it really may be too late to affect change here anyway. Hebrews 11:13-16 is the answer.
wrote: To John Yurich, WRONG!! 2 Chronicles 7:14 the only hope. Not a political party.
Correct. But if there is a Republican president instead of a Democratic president then the chances are much greater that 2 Chronicles 7:14 will come to pass since the Republican party is Godly and the Democratic party is Satanic.
This is why it is imperative that a Republican get in the White House to put a stop to the ever increasing moral decay in the United States by putting judges on courts that are going to enact laws that are going to stop this insanity.
