We should use Romans Chapter 1, for it condemns homosexuality 100%. If you do not believe in Apostle Paul's Epistles like some other people on this forum don't, then God help you for in Galatians Chapter 1 verses 11-12 and I quote: "But I certify you brethern, that the Gospel which was preached of me is not after man, neither was I taught it, but by the Revelation of Jesus Christ." So, Paul received these Epistles from Christ and whatever he says, it is GOSPEL TRUTH. AMEN & AMEN
Paul is focused on proving that idolatry is wrong and the people should worship God. The people Paul is talking about in Romans 1 had knowledge of God but rejected God in spite of their knowledge of Him. The link between v. 26 and v. 27 is "likewise also the men." The men were doing something like the women were doing. Whatever they were doing is linked to rejecting the true God and engaging in idolatry.

The most common sense understanding of Romans 1 is that Paul is describing shrine prostitution, cult prostitution, people who use sex to worship the fertility goddesses of ancient Rome.

I think what is a sin is those that have a statue of the virgin Mary around their necks and hanging on their car mirrors. That's what Paul was talking about. Do you go on Catholic threads and tell them they will go to hell for that?

I'm not aware that any of the amendments and statutes are referred to legislatively as a DOMA. I'll concede the point to you since you seem to think you're an expert and quite frankly I don't care. They won't be around long enough for me to worry about them.

This memo is to announce the development of a new software system which will be Year 2000 compliant. known as:

“Millennia Year Application Software System”(MYASS).

Next Monday there will be a meeting in which I will show MYASS to everyone. We will hold demonstrations throughout the month so that all employees will have an opportunity to get a
good look at MYASS. We have not addressed networking aspects yet, so currently only one person at a time can use MYASS. This restriction will be removed after MYASS expands.

Some employees have begun using the program already. This morning I walked into a subordinate’s office and was not surprised to find that he had his nose buried in MYASS. Some of the less technical people may be somewhat afraid of MYASS. Last week my secretary said to me,“I’m a little nervous, I never put anything in MYASS before.” I helped her through the first time and afterward she admitted that it was relatively painless and she was actually looking forward to doing it again, and was even ready to kiss MYASS. There have been concerns over the virus that was found in MYASS upon initial installation, but the virus has been eliminated and we were able to save MYASS. In the future, however, protection will be required prior to entering MYASS.

This database will encompass all information associated with the business. As you begin using the program, feel free to put anything you want in MYASS. As MYASS grows larger, we envision a time when it will be commonplace for a supervisor to hand work to an employee and say,“here, stick this in MYASS.”

A woman is helping her computer illiterate husband set up his computer. She instructs him to choose and enter a password he wants to use, when logging on.

The husband, in a rather amorous mood, figures he will try for a shock effect to bring his mood to his wife’s attention. So when the computer asks him to enter his password, he makes it plainly obvious to his wife that he is keying in the word,“PENIS”.

His wife nearly falls off the he chair from laughing so hard, when the computer replies:

**PASSWORD REJECTED. NOT LONG ENOUGH.***

<quoted text>I don't think they are excused from their sins anymore then any straight person is excused from their sins. Or your sins. Since you love experiences, I have had a few with the guy on the corner holding the sign that if we don't repent we will go to hell or the sidewalk street preacher doing the same. I notice that people walk around them, I notice they not one person stops and gets on their knees and surrenders to Christ. It turns people off. And the conclusion is that so do you.
I am very disturbed by your comments. We are not worried at all that 99% of the people on this forum are not interested in what we have to say, we do know that most of the world hate God and His Word, but there are a few out there that may need help and if just one person needs guidance, it will be worth it all. If you are a Christian, why don't you try and help those out there that are lost and not write us back, for we are getting nowhere fast. I am not judging you that you will not be saved in the end, for God is the final Judge, but I have lots of Christian friends and we are one in Christ. Most of your questions that you are asking us, you should know already unless you are trying to argue. I did not think we were having a debate, for Christians really should not be debating (of which my Christians friends do not dabate for we are on the same page), unless one feels that the other is going to a organization that is not Christian and we have been there and debated with other cults. If people on this forum do not ahere to Scriptures, they are not hurting me, for they are hurting our Creator, so they really are turned off with God. Remember the Apostles when they went door to door, they were to dust their feet off and move on if the people did not accept Christ. You do not know us at all and you have no idea how God has worked in our lives to help others and God Gets The Glory. I do not feel as though we can discuss things because they will turn into arguements because for some reason, we are not on the same page. I do not know what it is, but my husband said last evening, he felt as though most of you want to argue and not listen to God's Word. I am in contact with alot of Christians and really do not feel like they are arguing with us, but with you, we still do not know where you stand with Christ. For if you remove any Scripture and deviate from any Scripture, then we know for sure that we are not one in Christ.

A truck driver, hauling a tractor-trailer load of computers, stops for a beer. As he approaches the bar, he sees a big sign on the door that says,“COMPUTER NERDS NOT ALLOWED – ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!” He enters and sits down.

The bartender comes over to him, sniffs, and says that he smells kind of nerdy. He then asks him what he does for a living. The truck driver explains to him that he drives a truck, and the smell is just from the computers he is hauling. The bartender serves him a beer and says,“OK, truck drivers aren’t nerds.”

As he is sipping his beer, a skinny guy walks in wearing a pair of glasses with tape around the middle, a pocket protector with twelve kinds of pens and pencils, and a belt that is at least a foot too long. The bartender, without saying a word, pulls out a shotgun and blows the guy away. The truck driver asks him why he did that.

The bartender replied,“Don’t worry. The computer nerds are in season because they are overpopulating Silicon Valley. You don’t even need a license.”

So the truck driver finishes his beer, gets back in his truck, and heads for the freeway. Suddenly, he veers to avoid an accident, and the load shifts. The back door breaks open and computers spill out all over the road. He jumps out and sees a crowd already forming, snatching up all of the computers. The scavengers are comprised of engineers, accountants and programmers – computer geeks. Each of them wearing the nerdiest clothes he has ever seen.

He can’t let them steal his whole load. So remembering what happened in the bar, he pulls out his gun and starts blasting away, killing several of them instantly. A highway patrol officer comes zooming up and jumps out of the car screaming at him to stop.

The truck driver said,“What’s wrong? I thought computer nerds were in season.”

“Well, sure,” says the patrolman,“But you can’t bait ‘em!”

Why do programmers always get Christmas and Halloween mixed up? Because DEC 25 = OCT 31
Why don’t the British build computers? Because they can’t figure out how to make them leak oil!

What do you call a computer scientist? It doesn’t matter what you call him. He’s too involved with the computer to come anyway.

What do miniskirts and hard disks have in common? Access time.

What do Unix sysadmins do when they’re horny? Mount a filesystem.

Why is “256 Ways To Make Love” the most quoted book on the Internet? It’s in the Fucking Manual

Humankind’s propensity for imposing anthropomorphic characteristics on inanimate objects has now reached computers. But, which gender should your PC be?

Here are the top ten reasons why they have to be male.

They have a lot of data, but they’re still clueless.
A better model is just around the corner.
They look nice and shiny until you get them home.
It’s always essential to have a backup.
They’ll do whatever you want if you push the right buttons.
The best part of having one is the games you can play.
In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
The lights are on but nobody’s home.
Big power surges knock them out at night.
Size does matter.

But then again, here are the top ten reasons why they are obviously female.

They’re oh so picky, picky, picky.
They hear what you say, but not what you mean.
Beauty is only shell deep.
When you ask them what’s wrong, they always say ‘nothing’.
They can produce incorrect results with alarming speed.
They are always turning simple statements into big productions.
Small talk is important.
You do the same thing for years, and suddenly it’s wrong.
They make you take the garbage out.
Miss a period and they go wild.

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed a desire to become a “great” writer.
When asked to define “great” he said “I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, wail, howl in pain, desperation, and anger!”

He now works for Microsoft writing error messages.

Hear about the woman who married three different Microsoft employees and still died a virgin?

Her first husband was in Training, and he kept teaching her how to do it herself.

The second one was in Sales, and he kept telling her how good it was going to be in the next release.

The third was in Tech Support, and he kept saying,“Don’t worry, it’ll be up any minute now…”

A computer engineer, a systems analyst, and a programmer are driving down a mountain road when the brakes fail. They scream down the mountain gaining speed every second and screeching around corners. Finally they manage to stop, more by luck than by judgment, mere inches from a thousand-foot drop to the jagged rocks on the valley floor. More than slightly shaken, they emerge from the car.

“I think I can fix it,” says the computer engineer.

The systems analyst says,“No, I think we should take it into town and have a specialist examine it.”

The programmer holds his chin between thumb and forefinger and says,“Okay, but first I think we ought to get back in and see if it does it again.”

It’s wise to remember how easily email can be misused, sometimes unintentionally, with serious consequences. Consider the case of the Illinois man who left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick email.

Unfortunately, when typing her address, he missed one letter, and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her email, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a dead faint.

At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

Dearest Wife, Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

P.S. Sure is hot down here.

Those who have it would be devastated if it was ever cut off.
Those who have it think that those who don’t are somehow inferior.

Those who don’t have it may agree that it’s neat, but think it’s not worth the fuss that those who have it make about it.

Many of those who don’t have it would like to try it, a phenomenon psychologists call “E-Mail Envy.”

It’s more fun when it’s up, but this makes it hard to get any real work done.

In the distant past, its only purpose was to transmit information vital to the survival of the species.

Some people still think that’s the only thing it should be used for, but most folks today use it mostly for fun.

If you don’t take proper precautions, it can spread viruses.

If you use it too much, you’ll find it becomes more and more difficult to think coherently.

We attach an importance to it that is far greater than its actual size and influence warrant.

If you’re not careful what you do with it, it can get you into a lot of trouble.

If you play with it too much, you could go blind.
