Irish voters back gay marriage in 'social revolution'
The people of Ireland backed same-sex marriage by a landslide in a referendum that marked a dramatic social shift in a traditionally Catholic country that only decriminalized homosexuality two decades ago.

After one of the largest turnouts in a referendum there, 62 percent of voters said 'Yes', making Ireland the first country to adopt same-sex marriage via a popular vote.

'Yes' supporters crowded into the courtyard of Dublin Castle to watch in blistering sunshine as results trickled in from around the country were shown on a large screen. They cheered with joy as the final tally was announced and then burst into a rendition of the national anthem. ...

We are to hold righteous judgment.context context context, 'let you remove the spec from my brother's eye but look a plank in your own eye" One verse!
If a brother sins take one our two elders and shed light on one's sins, if not repentant then make sin known to church if the
Brother does not repent then do not have fellowship with him

Colossians 3

12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.

Thanks,Unprofitable but in order for us to help our brother remove the speck from his eye,we must first judge it to be something which must be removed in the first place.
I don't think that's tantamount to self-righteousness.
If we love God,we will want ourselves and our brothers and sisters to put away that which is unwholesome and destructive.
But for the grace of God,go I.
I would like to see Christians to be consistently zealous when it comes to protesting sexual sin-whatever its form.
I can easily understand the homosexual agenda as Judgment on us all (myself included). Probably most all of us have contributed to the decadent society in which we find ourselves today.
It's when we don't take heed and repent that we find ourselves ineffective.
God cannot be pleased with this country and He has been ever so patient.

sc. thanks for your response.

I would be the first to agree our Lord said if you removed the plank in your eye that will help you see more clearly not to judge but to help your brother remove the speck n his eye. We don't want to find ourselves in Luke 18:9-12.

All sin is a violation of no other gods before me and love the Lord your God with all your heart. So, unless, we are saying that our sin is not as bad the other persons, then all of us have to deal with areas of our own spiritual deviation from being perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect and holy as He is holy. Once we start with the high standard that God lays out, then we discover that we, like Job must say we are vile and abhor ourselves in dust and ashes. The more closely we walk in the light the more we see the darkness of our own heart and thus must have the blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse us from our sins of omission and commission. When I come knowing that all I have is of God, then my view of others will be more one in lowliness of mind, esteeming them better than myself. My sin will grieve me more than their struggles. My attitude will be but for the grace of God there go I. That, in part, is how I view judging the faults of others.

Unprofitable,I'll start with this post of yours "...You mentioned that you find it hypocritical that people would speak out against a sin and yet have issues in other areas of their lives. That would silence the entire church of Christ, if we had to wait until we were perfectly righteous to speak out against the evils of our day."
I would disagree.According to the Bible,we may judge anything (except hearts) as long as we are not guilty of that which we are judging...remove the plank from our eye so we may then be able to address the speck...if one is not guilty or contributing to sexual sin,one may judge other sexual sin.
It's much easier to navigate the internet than television. Maybe there is just one or 2 stations on the t.v. that have wholesome viewing? I doubt it. Even the weather channel is inappropriate.
Is it worth buying viewing time? Even the "christian" television stations are carnal.
However,there are many clean Christian sites on the internet and except for a recent logging into my email where I got an unlovely gander at "saints" cheerleaders in their unholy garb, I can easily avoid unwholesome material.I don't go to secular sites.

Not sure what you are referring to here?

Listened to Deane Meatheringham at your second suggestion. In the middle of it this Scripture came to my mind:
John 8:34-36 34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.

36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
He ended the sermon with v.36

Thank you for this timely reminder.
You asked "How long will we remain willfully ignorant of what Christ has done, and is doing BECAUSE of us and through us????"

Maybe as long as it takes for him to get our attention and when his time comes he is both willing and able to get it.
I prayed this morning; Lord direct my mind, my affections, my will. He did through the word of God and the truth as it is in Jesus, through the instrumentation of your suggestion.

May the Lord direct your mind, affection and will in conformity to Christ's, and grant you assurance of his love, increase of grace, joy in the Holy Ghost and perseverance therein unto the end, for Jesus sake for He alone is Worthy

Hello...for me, and I think most here, abortion, along with other sins spark the same outrage. I think the concentration and discussion about sodomy is due to the overwhelming, taking over, and uprising that we see all around us and hear about, in one form or another, each and every day. For me, it's the utter shock at how fast and furiously this group has risen, and expanded their tentacles the world over. Their lifestyle has gone from being considered a mental illness to being condoned, glamorized, and even encouraged as two men on a billboard holding hands and kissing, to two women getting married on national TV as the crowd hoots, hollers, and weeps over the "glorious" event. Then there's the transgender issue that's hitting hard. The sodomites have gone from simply dressing inappropriately to altering their God given bodys/genders as the world looks on and applauds them for their "courage" to be who they were really born to be. My main issue is that the next generation is being raised into this horrific time, and taught that all of this nonscense is perfectly normal and that anyone who disagrees is one of those hate filled Christians who foolishly believe in that God their fiction bible mentions. What's just as disturbing are the so-called Christians and pastors who

sc, I would say you are not talking mainly about those who are saved and fight the good fight of faith but those who are Christians in name only and also those who don't claim the name of Christ. The Bible says they have no fear of God before their eyes and think that God doesn't notice. (Psalm 10:11;50:21)

You state you are not gauging it by this site but this is the crowd to whom you are directing your thoughts. As far as what other churches practice, I find have enough work in the garden of mine own heart than to spend much time with the weeds growing in someone else's.

What can be seen on the internet is far worse and more easily accessible than what can be seen on tv. Yet all of us are using it.

You mentioned that you find it hypocritical that people would speak out against a sin and yet have issues in other areas of their lives. That would silence the entire church of Christ, if we had to wait until we were perfectly righteous to speak out against the evils of our day. We should strive for universal holiness in all areas of our lives, yet the Scripture states he that says he has no sin deceives himself and makes God a liar. You are welcome to the path you chose, but I am glad even the imperfect speak out against the onslaught from the LGBT crowd.

On this site there are 187 listed sermons on modesty, 406 sermons on adultery, over 500 sermons on sexual sins (number could be much higher only the first 500 are listed), 448 sermons on proper attire, 88 on fornication, 69 on pornography, just for starters. So, you certainly couldn't say the issue is being ignored by any stretch of the imagination.

I can't say I've seen it in my church, but then I haven't been in so many homes of my brethren, nor talked with so many of them, that I could come to a conclusion as to what the general Christian community must be doing or winking at.

I'm not gauging it by this particular site.
Most of the churches in my area would take issue with a lot of what is on this site as far as BG,ecumenical movement,the RCC,appropriate entertainment choices,CCM,etc.
Surely,you can see where this country has been in grave sexual sin long before homosexuality became the topic du jour.
If you haven't contributed,good for you.
If you don't see cheerleaders,for example,good for you. If you don't have a problem with them,you need not have a problem with homosexuals.
I use this example (cheerleaders),because it is probably deemed by the populace as the most socially acceptable one whereby someone can be naked in the Biblical sense.
And,of course,someone like myself would be deemed the oddball for suggesting such.
My point is,it is hypocritical to complain about homosexuality if one,at the same time,condones/watches Biblical nudity. This nation practically revolves around pro sports. Enough said.
No plank...speak out. If one has a plank...no speck out.

Unprofitable,unwanted babies are the result of all of the hetero promiscuity that is embraced in this society and,for the most part,winked at within the Christian community.If a lot of Christians don't actually have an affair,they certainly aren't bothered by what is deemed as immodest and immoral, by the Bible standard,on their televisions. "Yes",sports programs included. I realize that this is "extreme" thinking but most of the sports' attire is considered highly immodest.
Christians will speak against abortion but not many will speak against the promiscuity problem with which it starts.
Homosexuality is judgment on a sexually perverted nation that didn't want to obey God in regards to His plan for marriage and family in the first place.
It's not hard to figure out.
Homosexuality isn't going away.

Trying to understand your comment. You state that the countless babies have been offered up as a sacrifice at the altar of free sex/free choice without so much as a peep. It would seem like that "altar" would be abortion. That is where the confusion comes in, there is here in this forum and in every church I have ever been in a very strong voice against abortion. We see thousands marching against it Washington. (although some here decry that) Where is the sound of silence of which you speak?

Maybe it is just me, anybody else here that attends church regularly find silence on sexual sins between men and women and abortion?

Satan is using homosexuality to destroy Bible teaching in the nations and it is working.

Homosexuality is simply sexual sin in action therefore it is crime in the same unnatural sphere as paedophilia, rape and adultery.

The reason why it has become acceptable today is that it does not directly affect other (normal) people and those who are not infected with its lewd disease. And of course whilst under the dominion of sin man cannot see light, truth and morals.

Paedophilia and rape have victims, whereas homosexual crime is between two consenting morally corrupt sinners. The similarity between paedophilia, rape and homosexuality is perceived in the lack of morals of those who carry out this abnormal crime.

Jesus teaches that it defiles the person and Leviticus states that it defiles the very land we live in, Lev 18:25. God punishes the people with iniquity for this crime.
Mark 7:20 "And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that DEFILETH the man.
21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23 ALL THESE EVIL things come from within, and DEFILE the man."

So false doctrine, murder, adultery, Idolatry, stealing, drunkenness, lying, etc. Are all OK then.
You would make a great Pope; John making up your own rules to suite yourself.
No of course those things you mentioned are not OK. But abortion, homosexuality and artificial birth control are the 3 biggest sins. So naturally those are the ones for which excommunication should be grounds for.
