Will Gay Marriage Pit Church Against Church?

Apr 27, 2009 | Posted by: SongBookz | Full story: news.yahoo.com

The trouble they see is not just an America where general support for gay marriage will have driven a wedge between churches and the world, but between churches themselves.

Did you cut Romans 1 out of your Bible? Here is what you are defending from different English Bibles:
Romans 1
"God gave them up" "vile passions" "shameful desires" "evil things" "men with men" "indecent acts"
The reason gays don't care what the Bible says is because "God gave them up".
That's what Saul thought. He also thought that even though Yeshua is recorded as saying "call no one 'father'" that it was right for his own followers to call him "father".

Not an isolated instance of his heresies.

PAUL SAID, "God is not the author of confusion," (I Corinthians 14:33), yet never has a book produced more confusion than the bible! There are hundreds of denominations and sects, all using the "inspired Scriptures" to prove their conflicting doctrines.
Why do trained theologians differ? Why do educated translators disagree over Greek and Hebrew meanings? Why all the confusion? Shouldn't a document that was "divinely inspired" by an omniscient and omnipotent deity be as clear as possible?
"If the trumpet give an uncertain sound," Paul wrote in I Corinthians 14:8, "who shall prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air." Exactly! Paul should have practiced what he preached. For almost two millennia, the bible has been producing a most "uncertain sound."
The problem is not with human limitations, as some claim. The problem is the bible itself. People who are free of theological bias notice that the bible contains hundreds of discrepancies. Should it surprise us when such a literary and moral mish-mash, taken seriously, causes so much discord? Here is a brief sampling of biblical contradictions.

A Pastor who has seen the truth and is not ashamed to show it!!
God is not the author of confusion........we know! We are not confused.......you are.
You try to change the God of Heaven to condone your life choices. God is the same yesterday, today and forever.
He will not change for you.... He will change you, if you allow Him to.

No book can even come close to the awesomeness of the Bible ... none whatsoever ... ever
A Closer Look at the Word of God .. The Bible says of itself,“The Word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword.” It is vital to the Christian that we know beyond doubt that God’s Word is both valid and authoritative. This study guide will lead you to solid conclusions in that regard ... http://bobgeorge.net/teaching/closer-look/wor... .. continue
You got that right.

I guess it's easier to create your own God to please yourself than repent and be saved by the God of the Bible. Jesus of the Bible is the ONLY way to salvation.
"He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you"
Acts 4:10-12 (NASB)
10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead—by this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 "He is the STONE WHICH WAS REJECTED by you, THE BUILDERS, but WHICH BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone. 12 "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved."
It is interesting that you selected two Saulian tracts to support your fear-mongering phariseeism.

"stones that the builders rejected"

Hm. Seems to me that WE have had a few of those ourselves ....

More judgmental lies and fear mongering from the pretend God!!!
The God I serve is a God of truth and love, He takes no pleasure in seeing anyone die without His Son. Now you made it plain that you want nothing to do with Jesus and you get very angry when you are told the truth. Your anger changes nothing Norcal, the truth is the truth if you continue on as your are your soul will be lost forever.......now if you choose that so be it. Just know this you will not change our view of the Bible and we will continue to post God's Word so get use to it or leave.....

Yes we all know: June Ward and the Beaver sitting at the edge of the lake of fire eating fried chicken while watching the heathen burn... we know the tale.You really have to wonder about the true goodness of people whose motivation to sit down, shut up and do what their told is motivated by the thought of sitting in the lap of luxury while other people suffer. More importantly if the extrapolation of this kind of eltist, clubhouse thinking explains why two-thirds of the world lives in abject povery. Do you REALLY think that being gay or lesbian is going to be the litmus test to what happens to you after this life it over, or do you think maybe, just maybe, your pleasure in the thought of other people suffering for not allowing you to control them this are the seeds to your future suffering? have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe that instead of a rality this story is simply a narrative to explain a greater truth that you're missing because your caught up in the imagery instead of the point, and maybe, just maybe, it's YOU, by your own ignorance and pleasure in the self-rightiousness that narrative gives you, are sowing the seeds for YOUR future suffering?
What makes you think anyone of the Christians here take pleasure in ppl being lost forever? You are being dishonest with yourself.

Pretty arrogant and presumptuous of you to purport ot understand someone else's relationship with the divine, and pretty ignorant of you not to understand the concept of absolute transcendent grace.

No, Muffin, I'm simply aknowleging the spirit in which things are given. And I also present to you that the difference between you and I is that I understand an unlimited absolute Christ and the the very expression of His act an sacrice being very much the divine expression of Himself: unlimited and absolute-as is the confering of His grace. I recognize the the triune quailities of omnipotence, omnipresence and onmiscience imbued in those acts and my relationship with Him through those acts. I can approach the divine as a lesbian, realize the unique path of learning about the divine afforded me in this particular journey and know beyond the shadow of a doubt that my cleaving and cleaving alone is the prerequisite for the revelation and transformation of my life as one with the divine. I not going to step backwards into your religious infancy, I'm not going to be impeded by your failure to truely see the light. I gaurontee that you mergement will not take place until you do.
