Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

Dear MMM Blue BottleFly Manmanboy El Segundo feckless twit,
This letter is for YOU. Yes, you. You know who YOU are, whether in the persona of "Manmanman" or "El Segundo" and, as far as these threads go, I know who you are, too.
You feckless twit.
No. I am not confused. In this message, I am addressing YOU and no one else.
I do not control you. You control you. And you continue to misbehave. You act like a big, buzzing blue bottle fly, buzzing around and looking for a fresh cowpie upon which to alight and regurgitate. Then, after dissolving a stomach full, you suck it all back up and take off, crapping and peeing all over everybody as you leave the premises.
Lord, Help me and pass me an umbrella followed by the hose and please turn the water on!(Oh, pardon me for addressing the Lord, also.)
You stink. How do I know this? You tell everybody about it. The problems you are seeing in others are the problems you are holding in yourself. You need to look through the Psalms and find one for stink. Then go by what it gives for a remedy. You want control? Let the writer of the psalm be your guide.
Don't know if the psalms give this remedy. In fact I don't recall that they do. But, you might try taking a bath in tomato juice and Fels Naptha soap. It works on my dog. Might work on you.
Let us know.
In the meantime, try to get "on-topic."
Oh, and watch out for NoQ. I hear he's spoilin' for ya'.
Rev. Ken
ps.: The previous letter is still posted. So, your fire ain't burning much, if anything at all. Try jumping into the waste can AFTER you have set it on fire. Might get a better conflagration that way and it would help to sanitize your shorts.
Not for RevKen:

I see that this is a reply to a post that was not for RevKen, so he is breaking my boundaries maybe, but maybe not, because he is not addressing to me, but to "Dear MMM Blue BottleFly Manmanboy El Segundo feckless twit"

Not sure why he does that, but...

He claims that this person he is addressing to goes around and eats shit. What kind of shit should that be? The shit of RevKen? I don't know.

Lord, RevKen seems to have a lot of problems. I lay him in Your Hands. Let Your Will happen to him. Amen.

And protect me and help me Lord. Psalm 91,1-2:

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord,He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.

So Lord, please help me against all the evil controlling people as far as I can see, protect me, help me. I cling to You, I look to You. Help me Lord.

This RevKen seems to struggle, want to control other people how to be. I lay him in Your Hand Lord. Let Your Will happen to him. He also seems to be full fo shit. Can You help him Lord. Amen

Let him get a good life:

3. John, vers 2:

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

Help me Lord, change me Lord, let everything be done to Your glory. Amen

Psalm 86,1-2:

Hear me, Lord, and answer me,
for I am poor and needy.
2 Guard my life, for I am faithful to you;
save your servant who trusts in you.

You come with a lot of accusations. What do you want to achieve with that? Can you be specific?

If you don't want to contribute with something good I just burn it, and if you can't be specific, I just burn it.

Why does he need to control? Because he has problems inside himself that he doesn't manage to solve?

Certainly no one has been able to cite any Bible translation, ancient Bible text, or Judo-Christian tradition that places in question the Bible's many condemnations of all homosexual behavior.

We're going to have to agree to disagree with that. I don't think that the Bible does, specifically, address homosexuality at all.

The Bible irrefutably condemns all homosexual acts in the plainest of terms, repeatedly, and in both Testaments.

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9(NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
Jude 1:6-7 (NASB)- And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

David, you still haven't answered my simple question: is the bible to be taken completely literally, or are some parts figurative?

So, not for RevKen:

What do you say guys, this man seems to struggle quite hard with control-issues. He wants to contro me and other?

Why? I don't know. I can't get in dialogue with him, so I am guessing, and I guess he has a lot of insecurity inside himself.

NoQ struggles.

Lord of Lords, I pray for him. Let Your Will happen to him. Amen

RevKen struggles with a lot of other things as well, evilness...

Galatians 5,19.21:

"The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God."

Lord, I lay RevKen in Your hands. Let Your will happen to him. Amen

scientists-may-have-finally-un locked-puzzle-of-why-people-ar e-gay
Long thought to have some sort of hereditary link, a group of scientists suggested Tuesday that homosexuality is linked to epi-marks — extra layers of information that control how certain genes are expressed. These epi-marks are usually, but not always, "erased" between generations. In homosexuals, these epi-marks aren't erased — they're passed from father-to-daughter or mother-to-son, explains William Rice, an evolutionary biologist at the University of California Santa Barbara and lead author of the study.
Hence a genetic mistake.
