I‚Äôve been in office meetings where a supervisor ( who was a lesbian) wrote everyone up because the employees murmured about her habits of promoting her newest and latest conquest Look, homosexuals are cult like and will brook no argument on who‚Äôs in charge. They are craven and what they abuse is usually people who don‚Äôt agree with them. It‚Äôs like the movie the invasion of the body snatchers- they do and they are.
That's the problem, Dr. Tim. Whomever defines the terms "to do justly and to love mercy" has the ability to define what the verse means. You are relying on the text itself, in context, to define what this means and to your credit. Senator Booker and his Progressive movement want society to define those terms based on its own whims. It seems like the false prophets of Jeremiah's day who declared the Lord's favor toward Judah when His wrath was being aroused instead.
‚ÄúTo do justice‚ÄĚ in Micah‚Äôs day would include the immediate execution of sodomites. Booger might want to pick another scripture to ‚Äúprove‚ÄĚ his point. BTW, libs ALWAYS twist scripture in an attempt to do whatever they please regardless of what God says. Jim has done it countless times in his support for universal healthcare.
Pete Buttigeig is "married" to a man so he will naturally be in favor of the alphabet soup group. Booker is not married and he seems effeminate. It is apparent that he definitely supports this group whom God, Himself calls abominable. Booker continues to be very loyal to the male and female sodomites and their ungodly, abominable agenda.
Booker very strongly supports the alphabet soup groups in their beliefs and practices.
To not purposely demonstrate the context of the scripture is the equivalent of blasphemy. But more to the point, what was the message of Micah? Timely warning of dire consequences for sin of a nation and hope for the restoration of Israel by the Lord‚Äôs mercy.
Micah 6:13 - Therefore I will also make you sick by striking you , By making you desolate because of your sins. Micah 7:19, He will again have compassion on us. And will subdue all our iniquities. You will cast all our sons Into the depths of the sea. Amen, amen.
As ones only hope is in & through Christ Alone, as All other soil is sinking Sand amen!
O‚Äô Jim, may God breath the saving gift of Godly brokenness, that leads to Godly repentance into your life. As you boast of, that I have tomorrow, a lie from the pit of Hell!; Pro 27:1!
Ben‚Äôt self-deceived by being ENTANGLE by your own sin & snares of treating your own sin so lightly, as the god you serve isn‚Äôt the true & only God of the Bible alone. As you clearly don‚Äôt have a yearning to seek personal holiness in your life, or a reference of God‚Äôs holiness either!
Pro 5:22 His own iniquities will capture the wicked, And he will be held with the cords of his sin.
Heb 12:14 Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.
Their is only two types of people, those in Christ & those outside of Christ. No third options allowed!
But it good reminder to preach to oneself daily, I am what I am, but only by the Grace of God Alone! As one seeks to share truth with others in love amen!
2 Tim 2:24-26 And the Lord's servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.
Don't change the truth of God into a lie, - Or you will pay for it.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Whether the reprobates like it or not God hates the abomination enough to rain down fire and brimstone upon it. And that's a fact.
Either repent of your sins or go to hell. Only two choices.
I wouldn't call it obfuscation, for it's quite clear Booker is a con man, who like the Devil with Jesus in the Wilderness, quotes Scripture selectively, ignoring the numerous injunctions for Christians to not company with (i.e. discriminate against) false teachers in churches and the lawless in business and marriage.
Perhaps he has learned from organized churches, who for generations have failed to discipline such leaders in their midst. And when churches do discipline, it's more often on the victims than the perpetrators.
Senator Booker should keep in mind these verses as well --
For by him [Jesus Christ] were all things created which are in heaven, and which are in earth, things visible and invisible: whether they be Thrones, or Dominions, or Principalities, or Powers, all things were created by him, and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things consist. - Colossians 1:16-17
The Lord is the same today as He was yesterday and beyond the beginning as He will be beyond the end. It is He who establishes what is good and right, not we ourselves as if we made ourselves for ourselves by ourselves.
