Suzanne...
In the course of a day, how many sins do you think you commit? Do you think of yourself as sin-free? Are you perfect?
I ask you these questions because I always find it interesting when someone spends an inordinate amount of time pointing out what they believe to be the sins of others.
You've been coming here for a month or so (maybe longer). And your comments are always filled with bits from the Books of the Bible--telling us that being gay is wrong.
Do you spend as much time perusing the Books of the Bible looking for those verses that pertain to your own shortcomings?
Matthew 7:2-5 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother,‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite!
Here's my point... You've had your say. You firmly believe that homosexuality is a sin. Maybe you think of homosexuality as a "worse sin" than the sins you personally commit.
Isn't it convenient that you choose a "so-called sin" (i.e.: homosexuality) to harp on? As a heterosexual woman who has been married for 55 years, homosexuality isn't an act that you'd likely engage in. It must be pretty easy not breaking that "sin".
Suzanne, I think you'd do better to focus on the shortcomings in your own life. We're all adults here. Most of us are aware of what the Books of the Bible say about homosexuality. And some of us (I'll speak for myself) believe that mankind simply got it wrong when they wrote about homosexuality being sinful. I believe that God made me the way that I am and intended for me to live a happy and fulfilling life. That's my faith. That's my conclusion based on my interaction with God.
Give it a rest, Suzanne.
And here's a big "THANK YOU" in advance...
VV
You say you want her to leave but you love responding to her. If she really did leave, you'd miss her. Just like with Frankie!

And the moral of this story is be careful what you wish for.

Imagine how boring it would be here if it was just you fruitloops agreeing with each other. Oy vey.

Are you saying the only sins you are concerned about are the sins of the flesh? How about the sins of your mouth constantly pointing fingers at others?

Remember, Jesus got mad and threw the tables over in the temple because they were disobeying God, so if I sound upset, that does not mean that I am sinning for that is a emotion. For if you look through Scripture, God was very angry with his creation and he destroyed mankind (except for Noah and his family) during the flood and he also destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah and with what is happening right now with Syria, this may be the beginning of he end times, so you should be focusing on your own life and not mine.
Jesus got mad over people like you that use the scripture to judge people for their sins, you made your point about sexual sins, you seem obsessed with it, there are many sins, why are you so obsessed with anal sex? What does Syria have to do with anything here?

I agree God created the universe. Does that mean we should not live the way we were created? You are so insecure of your faith that you have said many times that you restrict yourself from watching certain TV shows, My question to you is why are you so insecure in your relationship with Jesus Christ? Why are you living a life of fear? You are scared if you watch a gay person on TV that you might find your husband in the closet with his boy friend.

A country that has lost all moral code. Courts becoming activist and overturning laws voted by the people. And yet we think we are above all other countries and can attack others for immoral acts? I don't get it.

U R right on! We cannot tolerate these blasphemers anymore, and I agree with you that they all should be deported and forced to eat the dust of the desert and fall into the pits of hell for not believeing and for crying out to god to let them be blasphemers, claiming to believe ion that devil's evolution and stalin's socialist security and godless education where these false sciences are taught. Why should we tolerate when HE does not tolerate nor should we and so we should confiscate all of their worldly goods and cars and deport them to the hot place and then they will whine at the gates and we can mock them while we drive around and honk. Christ died for all for us to do this would be even too little so there may be more. Bless you for realizing this. God bless us all, but not them who are different or strange, for we KNOW what they are up to.
Thank you Char nela Hoosen, for I knew there was someone out there that has a relationship with God through His Son Jesus. Most of the forum do not want to read or most important Study God's Word, they seem to pick and choose what they want to match their lifestyle. They do not understand what sin is and what is not sinful and I have been trying to explain that Apostle Paul makes it very clear in First Corinthians Chapter 5 and either they do not read it they just want to live in their sins. I do not believe that Christians should be practicing sin as sin is defined in Scripure ( shall we sin that Grace may abound, God forbid) and I do know that there are things we do everyday that may not please God, like getting angry and other emotions that we have on a everyday basis, but they would be considered wood, hay and stubble which shall be burned by fire, but we will still be saved (First Corinthians Chapter 3) for we just cannot be doing the sins of the flesh which fall under alot of catergories. He wants us to live with the Fruit of the Spirit and if we obey the Fruit of the Spirt, we will not be caught into the sins and lusts of the flesh.(Galatians Chapter 5) This forum is about prop. 8 which has to do with homosexuality, but even though I mention homosexuality alot is because prop.8 is about same-sex marriage which is homosexuality!! When I am referring to sin, it could be any sin that we are caught up that is mentioned in the Scripture and also the Holy Spirit lets us know if there is something we are doing that is sinful. We use to go to movies and because of most movies have such bad content, we decided that God would have us not go to movies anymore unless they clean them up of which I do not believe will ever happen.

Thanks again for your comments for my husband and I greatly appreciate you. God Bless you and your family.

I will not argue with someone who does not accept some of apostle paul's teachings. Apostle Paul was chosen by Christ himself and he would not choose someone who would go against Christ. He wrote from the revelation of Christ found in Galatians Chapter 1 verses 11-12 of which I have quoted to you before and it is obious you are not interested in what he says, so please, do not write me back for it is not working. You are another one that is on my prayer list on this forum. Remember, Jesus got mad and threw the tables over in the temple because they were disobeying God, so if I sound upset, that does not mean that I am sinning for that is a emotion. For if you look through Scripture, God was very angry with his creation and he destroyed mankind (except for Noah and his family) during the flood and he also destroyed Sodom & Gomorrah and with what is happening right now with Syria, this may be the beginning of he end times, so you should be focusing on your own life and not mine.
Right back at you, Suzanne... Spend more time focusing on YOUR life and not mine.

Oh give me a break, the god your cult created has been proven false already. the bible that you use to "know" this false idol is what shows the myth to false...

this is the 21st century, we don't need magical myths anymore, we have rationality and logic...

What I don't think people like Suzanne don't understand is that Christ was sent to replace the old law. Otherwise, what was the use? We're saved through His grace, not through a long list of laws. God made I clear that He didn't want to be known through laws. He wanted a relationship with mankind.
