Again, all you keep doing is trying to convince people that what you believe is the truth.....but it's NOT God's Truth.........and the decision is ours to make and I have told you that all day long pretty much......yet, you keep trying.......but you ain't getting my message......I'm not interested in your religious beliefs, or your posting of other's near death experiences and making them more than they are..........you are free to believe as ya want, but your right to your personal religious beliefs END where mine begin.
.
You say it's not "God's Truth" - can I ask you what "god" you are following? Because yes, the Scriptures, the Holy Bible - IS God's Truth. You may not agree with it or Him. You may not like it - or Him. But the Holy Bible IS the only truth given to mankind from God.
So my question remains - what "god" are you following? What is his or her name? Because it obviously isn't the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

The (only true God) Bible was inspired by God our Creator. He gave His Word (Bible/Scriptures) to us for instruction and hope for our eternal destination.
.
What mankind should realize is that they can't just shape and mold a "god" into what *they* want Him to be. He also isn't there to be tweaked and altered into something He is not - or into saying or meaning things that he does not mean in that way.
.
Alot of the nonbelievers today, be it gay or straight, have decided that if *they* change a few things in the Bible, they can make their sin(s) acceptable.
.
And, true, doing that may make *them* feel better, or not feel guilty, while they are here - but(BUT)...when we die - and all of us die eventually - we will ALL have to understand that we will be kneeling before OUR Almighty Creator. And what do you expect to say to Him then - are you going to say,
.
"Oh, I bought and read a new book that said "Bible" on the cover, and it didn't mention that in it."
.
Or - "Oh, I knew about that part, but I decided I didn't like it so I chose not to obey it.".
.
Or... will you say, "Oh, well, I didn't want to believe you were real so I ignored you, and your Bible".
.
.
Do you honestly think that God is going to just say, "Oh, okay, no harm done, c'mon in."?
.
Non believers are only fooling themselves by living their lives here rejecting God Almighty and His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
.
People need to understand that Jesus Christ is our only (O-N-L-Y) hope to escape eternal damnation for eternity. Let me say that again - He is our ONLY hope to escape eternal damnation for eternity.
.
You can call this "hate speech" til the cows come home, that's your choice. But it is being said ONLY because it is the ONLY thing that is going to save your soul come Judgement Day.
.
Yall can make fun, yall can dismiss everything I've said if you want - that's your choice. But I am trying to keep you from losing your only hope on this planet - when time runs out. And yes, we ARE in the end days, friends. And the only way you will know just how far in the end days we are, is to open the Bible and start reading.
.
I pray - and I've been praying today - for you guys - that Jesus will open up your eyes and ears to His Truth - before it truly is too late. But He won't open them up until YOU take that first sincere step towards Him.
.
Doomsday talk you say? It's only "doomsday" for the ones who die without having accepted Jesus Christ as their ONLY Lord and Saviour.

<quoted text>Nope, not referring to homo-sexual activity found in nature. I'm talking about the laws regarding the Community of Life, that every species is subject to, including mankind. Mono-theism, especially Christianity rejects these laws and claim they don't apply to mankind. This is a completely foreign concept to most Christians because, you lack any perspective except one. It clearly explains why you have self fulfilling prophesies. You ignorantly dismiss what you think someone has to say, before you even hear it, yet expect something different from others? You've already admitted you don't read "secular" articles, so how many perspectives could you possibly be aware of? But you think you've made an informed decision in your beliefs, one really can't discuss the ocean with a frog who lives in a well.

Ok, I've looked it up, the community of life nature laws - and it is, in my view, a new age religion or theory or something.
.
This theory/religion isn't going to save your soul though - that's the key thing. Or should be the key thing.
.
Are you saying that this theory should replace God and His Word?

THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, and Jesus AIN'T IT!!!

You have opted to believe in a book, put your faith in a book and call it GOD'S WORDS......and it AIN'T......it's just a bunch of stories passed down throughout history and some made claims that God or Jesus said these words......YOU DON'T KNOW THAT AND NEITHER DO I.......so, again, believe what ya want, but DON'T MAKE CLAIMS YOU CAN'T PRODUCE physical evidence to back up your claims!!!

Okay - if ("if") you are truly interested in knowing if the Bible is accurate and not a myth - you can easily research into these topics:
.
Astronomy
History
Archeology
Science
and
Already fulfilled prophecy, ALL of which
has been proven 100% accurate.
.
All of the above topics are IN the Bible - and was written long before the first scientist appeared - or the first astronomer - or the first archeologist - or the first historian.
.
But I get the feeling that you don't really want to prove it's authenticity - because that would totally mess up the whole "it's just a book of myths" theory?

According to the Bible, homosexuality is an abomination - and disgusts God as does all other sin.

NorCal, you keep saying that there is only one God - you are correct in saying that. So I'm assuming you are, at least, willing to acknowledge Him - but then you choose to reject His Word/Bible?

The one true God that you speak of - Yashua - is the one true Almighty Creator of all mankind, universe and beyond.
He - this same one true God - gave us His Word - which we now call a "Bible" - to help us while on this earth - and to help us get off this earth.
.
Why - or how I guess - can you accept God but not His Word?

I have a friend who believes in Jesus and the Bible - but only the good parts. She doesn't want to hear the bad - doesn't want to hear or discuss the parts about God's wrath upon sinners and unbelievers.
.
Maybe your mindset is like hers?
.
I've tried to explain to her that what she's done is to create this false "god" in *her* mind that feels comfy for *her*.
.
No, it's not the one true God - because that God is one she doesn't want to claim - she wants to cling to her version of God - because her "god" doesn't say anything negative - and her "god" doesn't send people to hell.
.
That kind of thinking is extremely dangerous - because on Judgement Day, the one true God is who is going to be judging her - and not the created one in her mind.
.
We are to mold ourselves to God - not expect God to mold to us.

Creating a false god for yourself is just false hope. Because the day will come when Peter has to be paid, per say.
.
And while a self created "god" may comfort you here on earth - when you die, that same self created "god" is going to stand between you and the one true God.
.
Just keep that in mind -that's all I'm asking.

Maybe read up on a man named Lee Strobel - he is a former atheist who set out to prove the Bible, and God, were nothing but a myth.
.
After years of extensive research, Strobel finally had to admit that not only could he not prove it is a myth - he had to admit that God and the Bible are very real.
.
He is now a born again Christian who speaks across the nation on his findings.
.
Some youtube videos on him:

And please, above all, keep in mind that this entire "debate" isn't about my being right or wrong - or you being right or wrong. It's about the free gift of salvation from Jesus Christ.
.
He will meet you just where you are - sin(s) and all. But you have to make that first step towards Him.

I'm not concerning myself with your intimate affairs - I'm concerning myself with your soul.
