Indeed, Buttigieg doesnâ€™t just assert Christian faith, he actively challenges Biblical orthodoxy: He says those who affirm the Biblical teaching that homosexuality is sinful have a quarrel â€świth my Creator.â€ť He recently told Rolling Stone that many things in Scripture are â€śinconsistent internally, and youâ€™ve got to decide what sense to make of it.â€ť
That has policy implications. ButtiÂgieg has touted the Equality Actâ€”a legislative proposal with serious forebodings for the religious liberty of Christians bound by conscience to Scriptural principles they donâ€™t see as debatable.
Heâ€™s also argued that when it comes to abortion, â€śthereâ€™s plenty of Scriptural basis to reach different conclusions about that.â€ť...
So true as this = Gals 1:6-9 material; Satan doesn't want to fight the church; he wants to join it & infiltrate with a different gospel of his own invention. Sounds very familiar, from the Land of Lincoln!
Just like the Prince of Darkness! 1ST priority is to attack truth, promote error, subterfuge the gospel, & try to discredit the divine work of God among His creatures (2 Cor. 10:1-5; 1 Tim. 4:1-3.
Satan's gospel wants to mix our works with Jesus' grace Gal. 5:1-4; our righteousness with the perfect righteousness of Christ Isa 64:6. It demands no repentance from sin; misrepresents the character & nature of God; elevates man & self-esteem as its core value; denies the efficacy of the cross, the sinless life of Christ, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His eternal Sonship, His virgin birth, & His claim to being the only way, the truth & the life for salvation.
My guess is that if a woman gets the Democratic nomination, heâ€™ll not be on the short list. No matter who the nominee, an African American will be on the ticket. Butt a jig will not be on the list. The mayor still looks like Alfred E. Newman from mad magazine.
""that many things in Scripture are â€śinconsistent internally, and youâ€™ve got to decide what sense to make of it.""
Rewriting Scripture is not an option Mr Buttigieg.
If God states in black and white that you are an abomination - THEN you are an abomination.
There are NO inconsistency's with GOD!!
The Bible was written by God, who also states: Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;" V:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie,"
You are therefore charged with sin and the wrath of God is upon you.
The Democratic presidential candidates are by far the most insane, wicked, tyrannical group of that kind their party ever produced. Watching one of their debates and you can literally see them lining out their plans to have federally sanctioned violations of every one the ten commandments. Not to mention their own personal violations of the same.
Petey has a fundamental flaw that all of us share, Jim. He is utterly lost without Jesus Christ as his Savior.
This man is a second run of Jimmy Carter. He is cherry picking the concepts he wants and twisting Scripture to make up the rest of what he wants. He can say whatever he wants, but you can tell the quality of the tree by its fruit. And he shouldn't be fooling anyone.
9. Or donâ€™t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit Godâ€™s Kingdom? Donâ€™t be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor male prostitutes, nor homosexuals, 10. nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor extortionists, will inherit Godâ€™s Kingdom.
Pete has a moral flaw that makes him fall into one of the above categories. He may not belong in any of the other ones but the one he does will exclude him from being a Christian.
