Its faith, in the Only begotten Son of God ,not faith in faith, or faith in "the church".

I have respected your views so far but I must say I have no respect for bigotry of any kind regardless of it's nature. It's clear to me you really don't respect America's hard won freedoms for which so many sacrificed and died. It pains me to hear your words here .

I forgive you of it but admonish you to remember to respect others in the future.

You do indeed owe all those you've offended an apology.

Again I urge all Corintians to vote YES!

I don't normaly apologize for telling the truth, mabey I could be alittle more tactfull, but compared to what many of my brothers and sisters in christ would say, I was.

You must not know much about the catholic faith. The other poster told me how christians should not be divided. I agree.

I'm not dividing christians, I'm pointing out a Godless religion, that tries to pass itself off as Godly.
The catholic church teaches, that there is No salvation outside of the catholic faith, yet I'm the one dividing?
Not only do they look at the pope as the "go between" between God and man, they also worship mary, sometimrs more then anything.
the hold mass, in which a man says some words over a cookie, and that cookie becomes God.

That's why, when they threaten to withhold mass, they are telling the one they deny, that they will not have God in them.

Catholics used to kill real christians who said that Jesus Christ was the only way to Heaven.

This is just the tip of the iceburg, to what this works based religion teaches.
The guy stated he was catholic and his whole church was voting yes, I took it that he was implying that they were christians.

Someone must love them enough to tell them the truth.
If someone knows the truth, and still wishes to be a part of something, that's their right.

I do believe in the freedom of choice, I just don't limit it to my choice like you do.

Wrong again it seems you got me wrong every way you turn. Once in my life I dated a Catholic girl. We dated for two years and I learned of their faith firsthand. Yes it's different from my Protestant upbringing to be sure but I was taught not to be a bigot by big hearted parents. I don't have a bigoteed bone in my body against anyone. I truly believe in everyone's individuality because it's what mkes each of us who we are.

Now the Inquisition of which you refer to in my opinion has no bearing at all upon the modern Church no more than say the Baptists support of Segregation does. The fact is every Church has a few skeletons in the closet. The reason is that all Churches are made of mankind and are therefore imperfect.

We would all like to hear the relevance of something which occured between the years 1480-1834 which was the year The Office of the Inquisition was disbanded.

Mabey we both get each other wrong, it's hard to see expressions while typing.
As far as people having rights to do as they please,, they do, and I honor that.
my father was at normandy, and other places during WWII, and I do respect others rights.

If someone wants to join the mooses, or the gooses or whatever, but being a former atheist who could have cared less of any god, I am now defencive of the truth.
The truth that is simply not there in many denominations, although all denoms have issues and are imperfect, some that claim the name of christ, are just flat out the opposite.
Mormans claim to be christians, are they?

I had to go against what I was raised to believe as a child, after I was saved.
I may not seem to love others, but if your child is in the street, you don't quitley speak to them, you scream.
I'm sorry if what I say offends people, but if they have the truth, then mabey they will look deeper into what they say they believe.

There are people dying and going to hell, and all the different denominations are not all right.
Many things don't make any difference, but when it comes to how one goes to Heaven, there is only one way, Jesus Christ.
If any other man, angel, or anything preach another gospel, I am to let them be accursed.

They do preach another gospel.

I feel liquer will pass, if it don't I pray they give up, and never bring it back up again.
They cannot get the odds any better, unless they ban all no votes.
As far as grammer, I clearly am not the one to be picky. Lol

This whole debate is giving organized religion a bad name. I'm so disappointed in this community's view of others that disagree or worship differently than they do. Who are you to determine and call out an entire church and label them as non-Christians! Get off your high horse and go look in the mirror. How Christian are you being right about now? It would do us all well, the entire body of Christ, to focus on what really matters; seeking to unite in His name and not divide in the name of alcohol.
With that, I'll add my Catholic butt will be voting YES on Tuesday because it is my right as an American to do so. That said, I will gladly shake the hand and respect fellow Christians that vote NO if they vote that way because they felt it right in their heart, not because they were told they had a "Christian duty" to do so. 1 Peter 3:8-11
Let me tell you a story.
I met two very nice, sweet people, about a year or so ago. The man told me that they had always been catholic, and would die catholic.
They were both in their 80's.
Later the man was talking about church, so I invited him to mine. He laughed and said that he went to church one time a week and that was enough of that shit.
Later he told me, well I realy don't know, mabey there is a God up there somewhere?
and that mabey he would make it to heaven, if there were one.
His wife had statues of mary all over the place, and that was all she talked about.
How she prayed to the virgin mother mary.

This broke my heart!
Here is a man, that has spent 80 years in a dead religion, trying to "make it", and still don't have a clue.
When I asked them about confession, they told me that you are suppose to go, atleast once a year, but at their age, they didnt sin anymore so they don't bother with that.

My heart still breaks for this couple!

80 years!!! And no clue!!!
I went from being a god hating atheist, to a born again christian, in the blink of an eye, just like the theaf on the cross, I now how a know so salvation.
I know where my soul will go, when this body dies.
I pray, the 80 year old couple realizes the one true Jesus Christ, before they die, and not the jesus the catholic church has sold them.

This is love, this is not me saying I'm right and you're wrong.

I'm saying God's right and the catholic faith is wrong.

For goodness sake! If you can't spell "maybe", maybe you should quit pontificating. Look at the word: it is a compound word composed of "may" and "be", meaning that you could possibly be correct.

I'm a little more tactful I guess and focus on not alienating people by seeming to pass judgement on them. I have disagreements with most of the denominations for one reason or another.

I'm truly disappointed in the Leadership they have failed to show in America over the last sixty or seventy years.(no I'm not that old I know the history ) I could give you a long list of issues which would illustrate that all of them were AWOL when it mattered. Don't misunderstand me , I think they've done lots of good but in a lot of cases they dropped the ball too.

I respect your views here and I've found you to be a person of substance and I hope you can respect mine. I'm enjoying the honest exchange.

One thing I can tell you is that if this vote fails it will come up again sometime. I'm curious why you seem so confident of passage. I'm not so sure. It all depends upon who's the most motivated to get out the vote.

I feel like God has different tools that He uses.
you don't need a Hammer on everything, sometimes you need a feather duster, but all any can do is try to be sensitive to the spirit. Sometimes I miss it, but other times I don't. As far as the 80 year olds, a person don't have much time left, and they are set in their ways, yet there have been 80 year olds saved.
I met a young guy once, that liked me as we talked I knew he kept to himself.
I helped him fix his car, and thought I won't push the Jesus thing right now, and after he gets to know me I will.. he was 22 years old and had his own home, thanks to his grandfather.
I was to see him next week, but when I arrived where he worked, and I worked once a week, I found out that his cousin had just got out of prison, and wanted to borrow money, he wouldnt let him, so his cousin took a knife and slit his throat. He then stoled his money and guns. You never know when someone will die.
Another time, one of my friends dad was sick in the hospital, God told me to go see him. It was 100 miles away, so I called and his son told me he was doing great and was out of the hospital. I thought good deal, I'll catch him later. He got up that night to go to the bathroom, and dropped dead. I have enough blood on my hands, and my main concern is for lost souls. I can't run them off, to hell number 2, so I can only speak the truth.
It may make them mad as hell, but they will be forced to think.
I am sorry, when it is just my flesh saying I'm right and you're wrong. No one wins doing that.

As far as liquer, I don't think either way matters, but I feel with all that's in me, that it will be a Yes.

Plus to grammer ghost, spelling is not my highest priority, if it is yours great :)
Keep correcting me, becouse I'm teachable.

Never know how much time anybody has my Dad was 91 when he passed.

At least you're doing what you feel is right. I can respect that.

I learned the gentle approach from my folks and it's always stuck with me. Sometimes people misinterpret it. I try to be tolerant of others. I have a Love of people in general and find all people fascinating in their own way.

The best way is always through Love and understanding. If I heave a brick through your window anything else I say will not matter. Get my point?

Diplomacy is a fine art and something we need more of.

I agree without love, nothing said is worth anything.
I may come across as non loving, but only God knows the heart of a person. Plus we know love comes in different forms.
Remeber the religious ruler that came to Jesus at night?
this man was used to getting upmost respect!
People bowed as he walked by.
He came easy spoken to Jesus, telling Him how they knew He must be from God, becouse of all He did and said.
Jesus cut straight to the point with him, and let him know how he was a religious ruler, yet didn't even know God.
He also told him that he was going to Hell.
I'm sure many religious rulers would be alittle upset at these words, but did Jesus love him?

Thankfully the man got it right later, and even used his own tomb to lay the body of Jesus in, atleast for a few days.

Before I was saved, I confided in a friend of mine, on how I had been having an affair for two years with another woman. Now my friend was single, and we lost count at 150 or so he had slept with, so when he told me that I had commited a bad sin of adultry, I didn't take it so well.

But later, when no one was around, I looked it up in the bible. I did Not like what it said at all!
yet the next day I was under Holy Ghost conviction, I just didn't know what it was called.
this lead to my salvation.

I try not to judge others, and all my sins are out for all to see, but being human I do screw it up sometimes, and "mabie" to hard on sum things, not hard enough on others?
Only God knows, but I have no problem saying I'm sorry, if I feel I've messed up. I have done it other times before on topix.

I do love others, and try to tell them the truth, just like my friend did.
When I stopped comparing myself to him, and started comparing myself to God, it all came clear, just how low of a person I was.

I do too and always in ways that sometimes folks don't even realize at the moment. They will come up to me later and say "you know I been thinkin on what you said" I love to hear that. Makes me feel good to know I made some kind of difference.

I was on the recieving end of the cheating so I know how she felt. As humans it seems to me we all leave a lot of wreckage along the road we travel and I've tried to figure out why we do it. Of course it is our natures we're born with. I 've made plenty of big mistakes though and I'm about as imperfect as a man could be.

I try to love others even those who make it so tough .

Hey won't be long till we know how this thing goes. I don't think I'll be surprised either way cause that's where the city is I think. Close is what I expect.

DT you are are obviously a smart and well read person. It is a shame that you don't use your intelligence and passion for the good of the kingdom of Christ. Hope one day you come to know Jesus.
He will become to know jesus but it will be to late for Jesus to know him. Masterbator has tried to convince hisself and others that Jesus is not real for 2 years now. He has faught major conviction for over a year now from Jesus. He pretty much knows he's real. He just don't want to believe it. He has 20 names on here.

Pardon me but isn't this thread about the Liquor vote?

The Church has a legitimate right to speak up about issues facing the community. I would be the first to tell you this.

There is a bit of a problem for me though because Corinth already has beer sales. Is the Church saying drink all the beer you want but don't touch whisky?

Savannah TN had a similar argument a few years ago and opponets won a temporary battle. Later the Legislature passed a bill allowing Liquor by the drink if your business was located near and along the the TN river. They were upended by the state and since then you can go in a few resturants and have a cocktail with your meal or sit at the bar if you wish. No one can point to any adverse consequences at all. The sky did not fall in on them as was predicted from the Pulpit.

Sometimes the Church spends too much time fighting the wrong battles and loses sight of their original charge which is spreading the gospel. This is one such case. In the end regardless of the vote anyone who wants a shot of whisky will have it no matter what. These laws have never accomplished one thing and never will. They excite the zealous because they extend to them the hope that they will be able to dictate to others how they shall live. In the end though all such efforts fall by the way side.
The big churches like Wheeler grove and the big one on Harper rd across from the ford place at 2 of the worse to brain wash their people on how to vote and keep a stink going. Remember just because some of these churches are in the city and has maybe a few thousands of people that are members does not mean all of them can vote or have any input in it. Over 90% of each lives in the county..:)

Just know, that I don't judge you as a person, only the catholic faith. Being somewhere you are comfortable is fine, but many go to church, like the couple I told you about. He goes, becouse that is what He feels He should do, in order to please God.
I was raised church or christ.
I tried to be a good boy at all times, becouse that is what they teach. If your good, then God accepts you, if your bad He may rake you into Hell.

After finding my father dead at age 11, and my mother went from taking me to church, to going to bars bringing home a different gut every other night, I became an atheist. I did not believe in God, and did not care.

12 years ago, I was under holy ghost conviction, just didn't know what it was, then one night God woke me up, after a brief struggle with all I thought I knew, I gave into a God, that I didn't believe exsisted.

My life was changed at that momment.
I have never been the same.
Church is ok, all have faults here and there, but some put heavy weights on men, that the very top men can not, and will not be able to carry.

When it comes to pleasing God, there is only one way. When one comes into a personnal relationship with His perfect lamb, Jesus Christ.

Many go to church, but don't know God.
Many may never go to church as we know it, and do know God.

There is only one way to Heaven, and that is through Jesus Christ.
Many cursing and blessings, but like the theif on the cross, is in heaven today, and for what?

Just seeing himself for who he was, and seeing Jesus for who He was.

Not of works, only by grace through faith.

I pray that you know that you know Jesus Christ, and depend on nothing else for your salvation.
I know how it feels, to be under the burden of the law, and I also know what it's like to be under the freedom of Christ.

May God bless you, and forgive me for my tact, but I feel I have spoken the truth concerning the catholic faith. I realize there are great people in all faiths, but being great don't get folks to heaven, only Jesus Christ.

Each individual church is different, but my friend in Equador sent me footage of catholics marching with a statue of mary, bowing down and worshiping it.

I think since I learned the truth the way I did, it is why I have such passion against all who preach a distorted Jesus.

It is no different than those who smoke, watch tv, wear make-up, etc.

If you do not agree, then do not do.

!!!BUT!!! It is fact, that if we let this vote win, it will bring jobs here.

More so than most think it will.

I do not drink beer, yet it is all over the place.
Because I do not excerise this right, does not mean it should not be here.

If we do vote this in, we will be able to stay in our city and close to home for good meals and better shopping.

I would much rather give my money to Corinth as I would giving it to Tupelo,Jackson, Memphis or even Florence.
