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.

Who hated who for what? Jesus wanted to be handed over to the Romans......and Jesus set it up with Judas and Judas agreed to do what Jesus asked of him!!!
Maybe you should try to read something other than what Constantine told his Holy people to put in the bible......it might help ya, but I doubt you will because to believe in a false book is better than educating yourself on the books and readings!!!
I have read it and it warns of a place in hell for you and all who are rebellious.

This is one of my favorite scriptures...thanks for posting it.

"For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day." -2 Timothy 1:12-

You must be as ignorant as RR......YOU CAN NOT JUDGE OTHERS WHO DON'T BELIEVE AS YOU DO.......simply stating, you can judge me according to my beliefs, but NOT yours, which I don't follow or believe in!!!
Romans is far from ignorant. God has judged you we are just agreeing with God. You will believe one day.

Actually it is WHEN that person has repeatedly told you that you are wrong about their beliefs!!!

You continue to try and judge me based on YOUR beliefs.....and you simply can't......but it is quite obvious that you only care about what you believe and not what others do.....so, why should anyone care about what you think or say?

Well, we are each entitled to our opinion....and I believe both you and RR are severely limited in many aspects of your claims here on topix and both of you are narrow-minded individuals who can only see what you want!!!

I've already told you more than enough times that I already believe in God and that I don't fear facing God on my judgment day:-)

Show just one post where I lied. You can't, so now who is the liar?
So typical. Divert attention from the message onto the person of the messenger, then divert it again onto the self.

Consider how many Xian hymns say "I", "Me", "My", "Mine", "We", "Our" and "Us" far more than they actually sing anything praising to the Deity.

Here is one of the very unusual exceptions from a tradition that is one of the worst offenders:



There still is very little actual praising of the Father FOR anything. It's still got far too much "us good guys" wrapped up in it, so it's pretty much a marching song for "our team". A close exammination leaves one wondering who is actually being "worshipped". Fun to sing, though, but not quite what it purports to be.

Feel familiar?

This, oddly, comes far closer:

It bothers to see and hear and feel what is, and sings gratitude for these things as the ever new gift that they are.

My life has always been in his hands......my soul too. That is why I sleep like a baby I rest assured in my God.

The devils believe in God too, that won't get you into Heaven you must repent and receive His Son Jesus. Turn from your sin.

Say how is praying Gay away working out so far? Not so good huh.
When a person gets saved they become a NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST! If a person never became a NEW CREATURE, then they probably were never truly saved. Salvation isn't just repeating a prayer someone told you to say, it's a powerful life changing experience. You know the exact moment you got saved.

Why do think Bible Believing Christians always say: I know that I know that I know that I know that I'm saved?

throughout the Gospels Jesus tells us he is not interested in what we believe, but in what is in our hearts and in how we live our lives. Another scripture that bears this out is the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats:

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. Then the king will say to those at his right hand,“Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Then the righteous will answer him,“Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them,“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”

Then he will say to those at his left hand,“You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.” Then they also will answer,“Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?” Then he will answer them,“Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.(Matthew 25:31-46)

It does not matter how religious you think you are. What matters is how you have lived your life.(By the way,“eternal” does not mean “everlasting.”“Everlasting” means endless time.“Eternal” means outside of time. But that is another discussion.)

So did Jesus have anything to say about whether belief in him is sufficient for winning salvation? He certainly did, and it certainly isn’t:

Not everyone who says to me,“Lord, Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. On that day many will say to me,“Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?” Then I will declare to them,“I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.”(Matthew 7:21-23)

It is not confessing Jesus as Lord that puts one into right relationship with God. It is the transformation of the heart in love, whose fruits are loving actions towards others. This is what the Bible says. This is what Jesus says, for anyone to read whose mind is not clouded by centuries of mistaken theology that have been imposed on the scriptures and have distorted their meaning.

And greetings to you as well, snyper.

Thank you.

I really enjoyed that article I got that post from, and I have, for some time now, looked at God and salvation this way.
That article just said it so much better than I could.
