you are His child and He does love you
gay people can't help having the disease called homosexuality
but He does warn against certain things concerning y'all and being ordained is not christian, so this church is no longer a christian church and God will deal with it when the time comes
If HE is so powerful and Mighty and controls the world, WHY does he allow some of us to be born gay? Isn't HE in charge of it all? You should be complaining to HIM, not us.

Your yelling at the gay child of God is like me buying a car and yelling at IT for having some style that I didn't like, instead of yelling at Ford or GM or Toyota.

When will God get it right?

God makes a beautiful garden, creates Adam. Then Adam needs a companion so God creates Eve. These two fool cock it up so God puts them out of the Garden and tells them to fill the world with more fools. After a whole lot of begetting and other messing around, the world is full of horrible, sinful fools who God finds displeasing. Who would have thought it could turn out differently? Why didn't God just squish Adam and Eve like bugs and start over with better specimens. Anyway, God then decides to drown all of them like rats except for the righteous drunk, Noah and his family. We all know how that went. More fools and more begetting. Makes me wonder. Does God know what he is doing?

Yes. He made the Praying Mantis.

They go about their business until it's time to procreate. They do it and then the female eats the male. She produces male and female offspring and the cycle continues. Perfect proliferation.

I sometimes feel that way about insects until I realize I couldn't make one for scratch. Then I marvel at them. I must admit though, many have gone down the drain.

God set them up. "Here's your garden, you can run around naked and do whatever you want, but DO NOT EAT this apple!" How are you supposed to deal with such a rule? It is like the old Bluebeard fairy tale. "You can look at anything in the house, but do NOT use THIS key to open THAT door!" Who WOULDN'T want to try the forbidden that way? When poor unsophisticated Eve believed the snake, do you blame her?

Can you IMAGINE a parent being that cruel to a kid? They might as well book therapy for the rest of the kid's life after setting him up to FAIL that way.

Pandora's Box? Of course. These things were stories meant to be told at gatherings. They were not supposed to be written down but told so they would gradually change and adapt, thereby being a 'living word'. Eventually things were written down instead.

Yea. That's some God.

<quoted text> so you really think the ''many mansions'' means you can blatantly ignore gods command and be gay and still get eternal life? Many mansions obviously refers to ''it has enough room for all who have faith AND do the will of the father.'' dont twist scripture to fit human desires and beliefs....homosexuality is wrong, and you will be judged according to the word. Dont be ignorant.
Just for the record all you so called "christians" or whatever u claim to be, i laugh at not their ignorance for being gay but YOUR ignorance for thinking you are godly enough to cast the fist stone. He who judges acting the role of god BE judged. No sin is greater than another so regardless of what the good book says..u werent having a conversation with god were you? Therefore u my friend are acting as god and judging which is a sin in itself.
It cracks me up to see how pitiful this world has become. Judging is a sin but everyone does it every day. Thou shall not commit adultry..man oh man how many times ive seen this one pushed to the side. No religion is the right religion but christianity people will say. Well unless ur praying to buddah then any religion that u r getting closer to god should be ok. No one lives perfect. You know it and i know it. Everyone has to ask for forgiveness every day of their lives bc everyone sins every day. You should stay in ur business and let others be in their business bc no matter where it says what u r no better than any one person and u r being judgemental. Oh no youre sinning. Bet its ok for u though bc u will flip the bible in any way u can to make it work for your lifestyle right? Everyone deserves the gift of happiness. And those trying to takw happiness away...shame on you. If someone said you couldnt see your wife or husband again bc of something and they took your happiness away i dont think u would like that. How many people have u seen needing money on the side of the road or a different ethnicity person with their car broke down that u have helped? How many good deeds do u really do a day? I have several gay friends and they do more good in this world in a day then people claiming to be good christian men and woman..i could go on an on about how u have absolutely no right to judge. No one does. Except god. Are u god? Didnt think so. If that man is doing everything right an living life how any straight man is his sexual preference is just not the same then there should be no reason he shouldnt be able to do what hes doing. Everyone is a child of god. No one choices to be gay. Hello, why would they. I mean really think hard why people would want to be shamed on by people like you, disgraced by people like you, cursed by people like you and just mentally beat down every day by people like you. Come on get real no one WANTS that life. So u r basically saying yay i get to b happy with who i am with but u just need to suck it up and date who u r supposed too. Ignorance is bliss.

OMG being gay is a disease? Wow i neverr knew that. So it says that in the bible worded like that really? Disease? Cause if not you got some explaining to do to the big man because judging is a sin and that is even going to the extreme saying its a disease. Shouldnt act as god love, if u go to hell for being gay and u go to hell for judging and acting as god u will have a lot of pissed off gays getting back at u. Just bite ur tongue and stay out of others lives. Its not like they are up in yours.
