Good question. If Jesus were real and alive in America today, I wonder how far he would distance himself from his "followers". I'm betting pretty damned far.
Thing is, greed is never satisfied with having the basic humane components--and are often abusive and misappropriative with, and of, that of which they are blessed to have. And that includes ALL "social classes"--rich, middle AND the entitleMentally disabled.

So you parental choice is to indoctrinate children with superstition. Then your choice for individual adults is to condemn them en mass if they are not superstitious.
Then if all else fails, you prefer a nice warm sit with the Bible and a saline IV? Maybe some ringer's lactate and a gospel CD if you're feeling wild on a Saturday night?
uh, yeah - I guess that's all logical.
WTH are you talking about? I've never indoctrinated mine with anything other than EDUCATION for ENLIGHTENMENT whenever possible-you wanna mouth whip me for that one?

How many times do you need to read a statement, before it sinks into your thick skull?

Just because I am NOT as wild, deviant and perverted as you might think people should be, is YOUR problem.

Is that what you do on Saturday nights?

I enjoyed a nice magazine, quietly and horizantally, feet propped up-placement lightening only, with a nice, refreshing glass of healthy juice at my side.

I think I like my idea of "logical" better than your delusionatory projection....as a matter of fact-your sounds kind of...ewe.

Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are so pituresque in the summertime-weathered clapboard shingled cottages, deep blue skies, landscapes dotted with natures naturally growing flora, enhanced by annual plantings of the locals--and NO nasty GARBAGE strewn by sloths anywhere, to detract from the eye pleasing enjoyment!

You have a problem with that?
Too baduh for YOU then-you (and other haters of GOODNESS) can kiss my wholesome lettuce sowing, radish loving, green bean raising behind.
(and don't promote ANY of that vileness of perversions NEAR any of MY underage charges-because I would scratch eyeballs out over it!)
And if you came near my daughter or any of her friends I would assume that you are there to molest them and defend them.
Oh, if I choose to tell your "charges" some truth and you tried to attack me you would get hurt very badly.
But I understand why a sick freak like you would not want children to ask questions and think

<quoted text>So again this begs the question that you avoid, what is the point of a prophet if he can be so wrong?
Every human can be wrong. That's what makes us human. That's also why we have to depend on the Holy Ghost to reveal truth to us.
The prophet even encourages us to pray about the things he tells us to receive our own witness of truth.

<quoted text>No one questioning his is the point. If you have someone held up on a pedestal called a prophet of god, followers tend not to question the relayed word of the supposed god.
This is one reason all holy books are faulty also.
Their were civil rights battles raging in the decades before your church got with the program, so acting as if it were not a valid question in those days is laughable.
The controversy lead me to leave the church and I think eventually lead me to realize god is a myth altogether.
Maybe people in your church need to question a bit more.
Yeah I hear ya. But put yourself in that position. Do you think little southern boys and girls questioned their slave holding parents? Doubtful that more than 2% thought it out of the ordinary when it was all they had ever known.

Point is, if you are going to claim "truth" and are proved to not have full truth, you are a failure at the game of god perfection expectation. Now if your prophets are just fallible men as you and I are, then stop calling them prophets and get off your high horse. Your church is no more true than any other.
As I said truth is revealed every day. We learn more and more as we are prepared to receive it.
Even Adam didn't learn everything. And what he did learn certainly didn't come in one big lump.

Quit being so narrow minded and only presenting one part of the definition.
I said IMBIBE and I meant IMBIBE.

SHAME on YOU!

Definition of IMBIBE
transitive verb
1
archaic : soak, steep
2
a : to receive into the mind and retain
b : to assimilate or take into solution
3
a : drink
b : to take in or up <a sponge imbibes moisture>

----------
a : to receive into the mind and retain

Sal'ut-aye!

And NO, I won't send any. There's not even enough to feed all of America.
Besides, any old hut will do for that sort of thing...and it's better that native populations (in any country) build such themselves. They are then at least some what appreciative when they have to DO THE WORK themselves.

You are both wrong,thereby proving your lack of knowledge regarding the Scriptures.
You are reffering to Rev7;4 to 8 and conveniently left out the next verse Revelation 7:9
The Great Multitude in White Robes
9 After this I looked, and there before me was a( GREAT multitude that no one could COUNT), from EVERY nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands.

It is no secret your church opposes gay marriage. Again, behind the times of much of our government.
That is correct. Homosexuality is a sin. It doesn't matter what the government says about it. God made his stance known very famously in the OT.
However, like most sin, people can turn from their sin and be forgiven.
