Surely you've seen all of that black and white footage of southern whites screaming and carrying on--claiming that the country was being pulled apart by desegregation. Little black children having to be escorted to "whites only" schools... It was a disgrace.
The country didn't fall apart then and it's not going to happen now.
The basis of segregation was the premise that negros weren't human. Untenable position. The premise of SSSB is that anything goes, when it comes to sex. Untenable position.
The country IS falling apart. You simply don't care.

An old cowboy sat down at the Starbucks and ordered a cup of coffee. As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him.
She turned to the cowboy and asked,'Are you a Real cowboy?'
He replied,'Well, I've spent my whole life breaking colts, working cows, going to rodeos, fixing fences, pulling calves, bailing hay, doctoring calves, cleaning my barn, fixing flats, working on tractors, and feeding my dogs, So I guess I am a cowboy.'
She said,'I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about women. When I shower, I think about women. When I watch TV, I think about women. I even think about women when I eat. It seems that everything makes me think of women.'
The two sat sipping in silence.
A little while later, a man sat down on the other side of the old cowboy and asked,'Are you a real cowboy?' He replied,'I always thought I was, but I just found out that I'm a lesbian.
That's good...

I would like to suggest that anyone out there that is putting Tammy Faye down does not know Tammy Faye. I know she was not perfect, but are you? She did use alot of makeup, but she was a very dedicated Christian Believer. I wonder if you were about to die, if you would get on TV on the Larry King show and be able to try and help those out there that are lost. This woman had cancer so bad that she did not even look like herself and she gave her last words to the world about her Faith in Christ and that she wished that all could be saved. It takes a very, I mean very strong person who loved people to be able to do that, so next time you critize someone, be sure you could do what she was able to do because of her love for mankind 2 days before her death. Praise God for Tammy Faye.
Not sure if you know this, but Tammy Faye was a HUGE supporter of the LGBT community. She often talked about how our community was the only one to really embrace her after the downfall of the Bakker ministry.

She attended many Gay Pride events and had many openly gay friends.

She talked about it in her Larry King interview. And her co-host on her show, Jim Bullock, is an openly gay actor and stand-up comedian.

We tease her about her make-up. But she teased herself. How could you not love her? Plus she was a "belter". That voice that came out of her little body was amazing.

I have no problems in engaging in conversations about homosexuality, but I do not use my opinions for I believe in God's Holy Word, so I use Scripture to back me up and if the person that I am having a conversation with does not use Scripture, then I will not comment back. The Holy Scriptures are my only Authority that I will use when it comes to this type of conversation. I personally do not get offended by bad comments about how I write or what I say, but I do not want to waste my time if someone wants to argue and not really want to see what God has to say. I really am not trying to be rude, but if you want to hear what God's says, I have alot to say in God's Word about homosexuality as well as any sin as sin is defined in Scripture. Thank you.
Suzanne, it troubles me that you rely so heavily on scripture. How can that be your "only authority"?

I firmly believe that we each have a personal relationship with Christ. Don't you? That's why we pray or meditate.

And I've always believed that God didn't stop speaking to mankind when the last book of the New Testament was written.

If you look at scripture you see that it's always written from a historical perspective. The few letters from various people are the only books that were written in a present tense. Everything else is past tense. Everything else is stories--mostly verbal before finally being written down.

Here's an example of how I believe God continues to speak to us today... For centuries slavery was a legal and widespread practice. Slaves were either captured in battle, caught in their homeland and involuntarily transported to a new area, or they sold themselves into servitude in order to pay debts or escape poverty.

For so long, Christians went to the Books of the Bible and found verses that supported this practice. There are several places in scripture where slave owners were told specifically how to treat their slaves. And then there's the verses from the books, First Peter, Colossians, and Ephesians that said very clearly, "Servants, be obedient to your master."

But around the 1700's, nations began to question the humanity of participating in slavery. It became an issue in our own country. And one by one, each nation on the planet has stopped the legal enslavement of others.

So, Suzanne, what do you think happened? Do you think that perhaps God changed His mind on slavery? Do you think it's possible that God touched mankind's hearts so that the institution of legalized slavery would end? Or do you think that mankind is disobeying God for changing our own minds about slavery? Do you think that God still wishes for us to engage in the buying and selling of people, but we're sinning by not doing as God wanted?

I personally believe that God decided to move mankind to end legalized slavery. I believe that God has moved mankind to end a great deal of injustice that has its roots in the Books of the Bible.

I'm curious to hear your response to my belief that God still interacts with mankind and continues to work through us to create a world that He wants.

From where I sit, you can't have it both ways. You can't have us living in a way that is so different from the lifestyles found in the ancient cultures of the Bible, while at the same time claiming that the only authority are the Books of the Bible.

Thank you for your comment. You can love the gays, but hate the sin. My husband and I witness to everyone who is not a believer and in order to be a believer in Jesus Christ, you MUST obey his commandments and Apostle Paul talked alot of homosexuality in the Book of Romans and what God thought about it. We are not judging, but the Scripture does tell us that we will know them by their fruits. Also, alot of homosexuals say that Christ did not talk about homosexuality, but in the Book of 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. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ." So, my take on this is that when Apostle Paul wrote Romans Chapter 1 on homosexuality, he wrote down what the Holy Spirit taught him, just the same as we learn from the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the teacher and we all learn the same way and this comes from the Book of First John Chapter 2 verse 27 and I quote: "But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you; but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him." Christians cannot sin from First John Chapter 3 verse 9 and I quote: "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in Him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God." I do know there are alot of other Scriptures that the body of Christ interpet that when you sin, you have a advocate with the Father, but I believe that is before you become a Christian. We may not please God everyday I Corinthians Chapter 3 verses 11-15, but we do not sin as sin is defined in Scripture in the Book of Galatians 5 verses 16-26.
I already know that most of the forum will not agree at all, but if you do not agree, just move on to the next post. It will not hurt my feelings at all, for I want to only reach people who are lost from our Creator and are interested in God and His Scripture and that includes talking about homosexuality. Thank you.
Suzanne...

Firstly, you seem to be under the impression that the Holy Spirit can only communicate with Paul. And I don't find that to be the case. We all are able to communicate with the Holy Spirit.

And let me be very clear that many, many gay Christians have been moved by the Holy Spirit to understand that they were created just as God intended for them to be.

My own personal relationship with God supports this belief. I have been told that my being gay was His doing. He came into my heart and gave me great peace the day that He let me know that he hadn't made a mistake in making me a gay man.

Secondly, you obviously are familiar with various verses from scripture that indicate homosexuality is forbidden.

But I would submit that there are verses in scripture that clearly indicate that women should be submissive to men (and I'm a man). And that women should remain silent with regards to spiritual matters--that they should consult with their own husbands if they have religious questions.

Because of this, should we ignore what you say? You are a woman after all. Shouldn't we insist that you stop talking about scripture and have your husband get on this forum to discuss this issue?

I don't think so...

But if you're going to be a literalist, then you have to follow all of the "rules"; not just the ones that you wish to follow.
