"Evangelical College Azusa Pacific announced last week that it will be allowing LGBT relationships for students on campus following years of pressure."
Key word: "pressure".
The LGBTQ champions for diversity, tolerance, and equality, have infected this nation like a plague. The mass media, the courts, Mr OBama and his crew, and a general public, sympathetic to the plight of the teary-eyed sodomite, have given these people carte blanche power to rise up against a nation and re-write the rules of morality. They began with this nations children by infiltrating the public school systems, found great success, and then stepped up their game with gender confusion. The commercials began to flood the TV screens with tearful little boys who were being bullied because they identify with being girls and just wanted to wear dresses to school, and celebrating on stage, those children who were brave enough to be who they are; young boys in full makeup receiving standing ovations for their courage. Now, the infection has spread even to so-called Christian universities, and even churches, as they buckle to societal pressures, and concede to this new way of life. Woe to those who would condone, promote, and comprimise on such darkness when God's position is crystal clear...
So the next time youâ€™re confronted with a candidate for leadership in your own church (or school, or mission, or other institution) who boasts that he is â€śgay but celibate,â€ť you may do well to remember the clear and present agony of a growing host of your Catholic brothers and sisters. ***Every single one of the priests who stand guilty of sexual abuse started with a promise of chastity.***
Good comments, Chris. Pay attention to my asterisks in the last sentence. This man may try as he might, but hmmm... yet, through his dress, mannerisms, and associations, he openly screams sodomite, and is letting everyone know his preferred orientation via social media, but with promises of celibacy? This is worth quoting again:
***Every single one of the priests who stand guilty of sexual abuse started with a promise of chastity.***
Here's a thought that's a bit outside of the box, but...could this man possibly be reaching out the way he is in order to try and find others like him; others who are also in hiding who would respond in private? Sort of like trying to discover other "Christian" sodomites on the sly, to hookup or date, etc., on the sly?
Just thinking out loud, but this seems like more than a struggle, and more like, it's okay to be gay as long as I (we) don't touch
New cars are filled with complex UN mandated NWO greenie nonsense and aren't even allowed to be fueled correctly. Getrag DCT gearboxes have been giving trouble for over a decade and while people think they are there for performance, its actually just another greenie trick. By spending less time changing gears it saves 7% fuel economy but when it fails, throw that 6-10 year old car away because it will cost more to repair than the car is worth. Staggering to think that is somehow "GREEN"......AKA good for the environment. A simple car driven respectfully and well maintained by a proper mechanic (professional or just one of us who knows what we are doing) can last for decades.
My theory Services is a settled and noticeable name in giving top notch errand push online to understudies since for all intents and purposes 10 years. You can trust in our scholastic master writers completely to get best quality studies including significant examinations, review proposals, pieces and suggestions, and that is only a trace of a more prominent test.
This problem can linger for years as it has in the Bronx, New York
Stephen J. Wermiel wrote: Should public school buildings be home to weekend worship services?
This question sits at the increasingly well-traveled but difficult-to-navigate intersection of freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The answer is important for New York City and other school districts that have wrestled with the issue and, more broadly, for defining the extent to which public officials must treat religious speech in the same manner as other expression....

congregation, he is not allowed to continue until well in the future with full accountability he is obviously living in a very clear celibate way, that he is totally opposed to any expression of LGBTQ lifestyle, and more particularly in most cases that he is subsequently over a long period of time heterosexually and faithfully married.
While the article deals primarily with the Roman Catholic Church, and applies the conclusion to evangelical churches who have discovered homosexual leaning ministers, the two cases are different.
The RCC is cursed with itâ€™s regrettable rule on compulsory celibacy for itâ€™s priests, and its many wrong doctrines. It is true since Vatican 2, it has been completely ambivalent over the young men that it has permitted to enter its seminaries and monasteries, and the tragic scandals that have emerged there in.
However, evangelical churches are different, in that ministers from these churches are usually married (heterosexually) or expected to do so soon. Also the whole method of training for ministry are very different, and these evangelical ministerial candidates are much more â€śin the world, but not of itâ€ť, unlike the monastic style set up in the Catholic seminaries.
However, with the increasing doctrinal, moral and cultural pressures, more and more things like heterosexual immorality and now LGBTQ etc. immorality are coming into the evangelical church.
An assistant pastor who shares about homosexual temptation to his eldership and senior pastor, should be immediately removed from active ministry, given all the help and support he needs, but for the safety of the congregat
John MacArthur wrote: ... Jesus never attempted to fit His activities into the sabbath law of the old covenant. He established His own authority as one with God and as Lord over the sabbath. The Pharisees were strict sabbath keepers. They followed the old covenant and embellishments to the letter.
And yet they missed the whole point of the sabbath. They found no rest from their endless works efforts at salvation. They found no real honest repentance. The sabbath laws were mere shadows of hope, a weekly reminder that there was a paradise to be regained and it was through the means of righteousness.
There could be a rest from the endless struggle and the horrible burden of trying to earn your salvation. When Jesus came, He brought the rest, the true rest. The child of God is now a new person. Under the new covenant we are healed, and washed, and found, and accepted. We have entered into rest with none other than the Creator Himself. We have been given righteousness. We rejoice in that gift. We cease all effort to earn our salvation. Jesus literally did away with the sabbath....

James Thomas wrote: Ha! You will sic the posse on me eh? The Scriptures are my guide and authority. I'm fine being corrected by them but not Cleopatra or any presumption of what would be said today by a man to a woman. I'm not trying to frustrate you Bro, but I think we are making headway.
James my bro, we will make no headway until you realise that the expression "give me to drink" used in the 17th century actually means "give me a drink" in today's parlance.
However, if you insist that the translation means something else, you really will have to be more open about what you believe Jesus is saying to this ungodly woman when he said to her, "Give me to drink".
It's only four words, James. Can you not explain what he was saying?
She obviously thought he was asking her for a drink, because she replies:
John 4:9 KJV (9)Â Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, *********askest drink of me*********, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
But hey ho, if you wish to answer the question, please do so, and I will be very glad to get there at last.
Unprofitable Servant wrote: You find error in others theological thinking for not interpreting Scripture correctly but would you please consider your own response. Would you be so kind as to show where the Lord, or anyone in Scripture broke the law into separate parts of ceremonial, moral, and civil. The words that you used, ceremonial and moral, are not even found in the Bible. Thanks for your response .
It's a good and fair question, brother. And I'd be interested to hear an answer too.
...It may come down to a disagreement between Brothers about how the Lord operates in the affairs of men. Seeing as we cannot know the mind of God and must rely on His word, we disagree sometimes. It happens. That's why Paul's mention of seeing through the glass darkly comes at the end of a large passage on love. We can still be Brothers in Christ even when we do not agree. We may even fight like brothers! But God help whomever messes with my brother!
I disagree with you, Lurker, this time. I can only see thru the glass darkly, Brother. Someday, we will all see things clearly, and I look very forward to that day. I expect to have many "ah ha" moments as my theology and doctrine are corrected.
I was referring directly to something Jim had posted earlier in regards to a summary. Is that it? No, obviously not. Wasn't meaning to state things that way.
The place of the Law in the life of a Christian has been a matter of great debate for two thousand years, and there was a ruling from the Jerusalem counsel regarding it in Acts. I still argue that there is a consistent standard against which every person who ever lived is judged against, and that is the moral law.
While we can add nothing to our being saved, if we love Jesus, we keep His commandments (John 14:21). If He died for us, we are not going to have a free-for-all and add to what He suffered on our behalf.
Can we keep even the moral law? No. We need Jesus' covering sacrifice every moment of every day we live on this Earth. Sorry for any confusion.
