Just another religious cult. They're popping up all over the place. Ya gotta hand it to em though; it is a great way to gain money and power in a poor, ignorant and desperate area. Ya don't even have to get your hands dirty...literally speaking of course.

the truth is that the head of every woman is man and the head of man is GOD, it looks ,sounds, and the works of our lord and savior jesus christ will continue to move, by the using of his words. yet the end will be this (matt 7:21-23) the lord will say i never knew you. and you know why (2 tim 3:16)
and note it said that the (man) of GOD be throughly furnished. what you have is modern day lies against the holy one , jesus christ. we must follow scriptural doctrine. and theres more so to all the liers out there, satan whos #1 i can say, and i quote i can say following a woman, that includes you man, or husband, you will be as in matt7:21-23 in hell when the lord returns. if you dont repent and change you devil ways. i am app to teach, and by scriptures show you were many have error from the faith, and a (dr. degree) has nothing to do with jesus, if you go against scriptures. there will be more of the truth of GOD words to come amen

have you ever noticed that gay so called churches never teach about the sins of the acts of being gay,or lesbian, hum especially in the scriptures.
because its not church, and its not of GOD. and even the place that you may call church hum. thats right. can you righty devide the word of truth jezebel. yes it offends doesent it, and it ought to.
enought, is enought, you dammed the people, men our last, there are no co pastors, first ladies, apostles women, bishops,pastors,never even mintioned a woman evangilist in scriptures, man put that in there and many know that and dont care about truth of GOD words. and scriptures planly say dont add or take away. and many think schooling and language makes it that way hum. you faith comes by hearing, hearing of god words.
TELL THE TRUTH (AHAB) STOP LETTING JEZEBELL RUN THE CHRUCH, JESUS SAID UPON THIS ROCK I BUILD MY CHURCH. america's customs of churches are what most if not all places of worship destroy people.

im back again im here to give truth, GOD words are true and a light unto your path. i have talked to many about God words, old and young, some say king james version has be false, most young people
dont read, or understand god words,even many older, one reason why is that been taught all there lives nothing, from free masons, saved always saved, went doun in water never repented of nothing,being baptise in the 3 names, and not jesus christ, or the lord jesus. all most pastors care about DR DEGREES, and how much money they make and how many members, they dont want you to know the truth, cause if you do they will lose you.
stop lieing to people! jesus ordain 12 men, 1 failed and replaced him with another man. as my time is limited if you have been, or if you have married someone divioced,and eather or the one are still living, they are adulter or adulteress, and you have pastors,so called apostes, bishops ha! are doing marrages, and are married and have 2 or more wives, husbands etc under them. lies lies. and they will never teach truth. sending people to hell. you liers! workers of the devil. wake up!

Don't say nothing about someone using a church for tax purposes ONLY unless you mention 1st Baptist Church. That's not a new church, that's a tax shelter.

Sending people to hell? Where is this magical place?

"they dont want you to know the truth, cause if you do they will lose you"??? You're talking about churches and religions here right? I mean, if the churches and religions start loosing folowers it stands to reason that they will also start losing money and like any group of any kind that draws it's power from it's numbers, it is clear that a loss of collective power is also a major concern for a religious zealot or leader. An enlightened and educated public makes for a difficult and nearly impossible pool for recruiting membership or followers to any religion, wouldn't you agree? Your view of education and common sense must be terribly negative. I gotta tell ya pal, what I see in your post are the scribblings of a barely functional illiterate. Why would anybody above that level of intelligence by into your backward rant?

timebandit -- Hell is not a magical place. Read the Bible. It is a real place of fire and brimstone for eternity. truth of God functional illiterate? No don't think so. Don't know who it is, but speaks truth even if it isn't spoken as someone with a degree would speak. Whoever said a college degree was necessary to know, understand and tell of God's word. The one without the degree usually is more sincere when trying to reach the lost for God. Those who doubt the existance of Hell will find out on Judgment Day. Good luck!!!

A real place of fire and brimstone, eh? Really. Can you give a serious thought to that comment without burning out another neuron?
Consider if you will, the religious concept of Heaven. You know, that other mystical, magical place one may wish to go as an alternative to hell. From my understanding, this place allows no sex. You know what sex is right? It is the driving force behind all life, man and animal. Is this your understanding as well?

Christmas isn't about shopping. It's about the Lord Jesus Christ, family and helping those in need.

I have given serious thought to it and no I didn't burn out any nerve cells doing so. I don't really know if sex is allowed in heaven. Considering you die and your earthly flesh returns to dust and your spirit (soul) either ascends to heaven or descends to hell what difference does it really matter.

So you're say that essentially, the only real pleasures to be had in your heaven comes from eternal harp playin' and psalm singin"?

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.(Verse 3)
Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.(Verse 4)
Blessed are they who mourn: for they shall be comforted.(Verse 5)
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.(Verse 6)
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.(Verse 7)
Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.(Verse 8)
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.(Verse 9)
Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.(Verse 10)

You who judge, who think you know who will and wont go to heaven, you are not blessed, for you are not meek.

All people, gay, strait, or otherwise, deserve good. They deserve the ability to attend whatever church they desire, and it is not up to you to decide if they are worthy of god or his message. You who condemn only do so to yourself. The bible may say homosexuality is a sin, but Christ himself says that judging and condemning them based on their sin is far worse.

Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. Mk. 4.24
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

In other words, christ demands that you mind your own business and help those who are sinners. that does not mean talking down to them, telling them they are sinners, or behaving like busy bodies. If it truly is a sin, they must realize it themselves threw self analysis. Only then is true repentance possible, it is when the person has grace and mercy, and no persecution, does the heart soften and real salvation occur. You brow beat a man and he will repent just to shut you up, but it is not true repentance and you have damned yourself in the process.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: Lk. 6.31 for this is the law and the prophets.
