If you read my last statement correctly, you would known that I was not talking about John Price, I was speaking of my pastor!!!!!!!!!! Second, if you have ever read the KJV Bible you would know there are wolves in sheeps clothing, NO you cant live a life of sin, do disgusting and horrible things and expect to go to Heaven. However, some people are taught this lie. If all of this is true about John Price, then thats a prime example of wolves in sheeps clothing. I am not upholding him if he or anyone else does things like this. Its disgusting!!! I know good moral people that have never excepted Christ as their personal savior that have died, that is between them and God, I do know, you have to accept Christ and be saved before you can got to Heaven reguardless !!!!! Obviously, you claim to be an Athiest?!? I dont know how you can claim this, just look around at all the miracles of life,, only God can do these miracle BUT if you choose to live this lifestyle, go ahead, you live that , and I will live a true Christian life, I would never take a chance on my soul!!!! SO please read all comments correctly! prayers going up for you :)<quoted text>
I'm not going to argue with you about who is or is not a TrueChristian™ because each religious individual believes in their own version of God; so either everyone is a TrueChristian™ or no one is--there are more denominations of Christianity than there are chapters in the Bible. No, I have never experienced a miracle and it is overwhelmingly improbable that you have either, seeing as there has never been a single documented, verified miracle. There are hundreds of thousands of people who hold convictions every bit as strongly about their own religions as you do toward Christianity. You're saying that because they happened to have chosen the wrong deity that they will suffer eternal torment, but you were born under lucky circumstances where you had the propensity to pick the correct deity, so you will be fine. Being that all of this is based on nothing but faith--a complete lack of reason altogether--what you are exhibiting is wishful thinking; blatantly and self-servingly.

"A" every day of life is a miracle whether you choose to believe that or not, anyone could look at the birth of a child and know thats a miracle. Miracles didn't just happen in Bible days, they happen every day. Every individual has to decide what they believe, OBVIOUSLY, you and I do not agree. As I said, I refuse to argue with you or anyone else, that there would lower my standards. I stand firm that I serve the one and only GOD, therefore you believe , whatever it is you believe. You chose to take this so far downing Godly men, if you believe in "your god" you should be praying for me instead of trying to bicker. This converstion is a different TOPIX , so far off from the origional MINISTER CHARGED WITH SEXUAL OFFENSES. So once again, I will not gamble my soul for anything. I plan to make Heaven my home one day, hopefully, you can find the truth as Christians see it.

You have a pretty low standard for miracles, huh? Perhaps you would benefit from visiting a museum of natural history or cracking a middle-school level science textbook.

My point was made and you have only reinforced it with the silliness of trying to justify your cult of human sacrifice.

Friend, I would hate to be in your shoes. You will answer to a just GOD. I am ending this with you, simply because your obviously untouchable and have a hard heart. I will continue to pray for you. I pray you come to your senses before your life ends. All you seem to do is criticize. For you other Christians on this topix, I ask you to pray for this poor soul!!!!!!!!!!

As a human, its hard to pray for someone like you, but with Christ as my SAVIOR, I can do it and be the better person.

Surprised this got attention in the press seems like the press just wants to nab Catholic minisiters. Statistics shows protestant bible belt ministers pretty bad themselves when it comes to being pesos. Everyone though Sandusky was clean too.........

John Price, Karie Fields, Linda Thomas have their arraignment today for stalking. Did not realize that Linda Thomas was in on those charges also. I am so proud of the young lady that came forward. I know this was difficult for her.

Today is June 14, 2012. Must have made your Kool-Aid a little strong this morning. Are you saying he is innocent? Is that your point?

Of course he's innocent. All charges have been dropped and are unfounded, the Washington County judicial system has spoken.

I knew he'd be damned if he was found innocent as well. There are those who choose to always believe the worst things a person can say about another. There are people in this world who live for the moment that someone appears to fall. There are people who love to kick someone when they are down. That's just how folks are, always looking to validate their own selves by pointing out potential flaws in others.

Those people, to me, are not Christian people.

Even Jesus was persecuted in his hometown. Guess you'll say he deserved it too. We are ALL human and all sin. Best as I can tell, no one sin is worse than another to God.

you start out saying

"Of course he's innocent."

And end up saying

"We are ALL human and all sin. Best as I can tell, no one sin is worse than another to God."

So what are you trying to say -- That he is innocent or he sinned?

He's innocent of these charges, that's been proven. BUT, we ALL are sinners and all those who have been so eager to "cast the first stone" on a perceived sin should be looking at their own lives. Better to have Christians praying for Gods Will than burying a man and his family before facts were revealed.
No one is sinless in this world. No one.
Proven innocent but everlasting damage to a family that can not be taken back.

No one is building a statue to anyone. The court spoke clearly this morning and said it dismissed. If they bring charges in another court, well that's another day.

It has not been PROVEN! There has not even been a trial so nothing has been proven or not proven.
