Speaking of 'rationalizing'!<quoted text>
Also as you preach through the entire word of God you learn that "No man knows the hour and the day that the lord shall return" He comes back like a thief in the night and that indicates people will not expect His return, it will be a surprise, and it's true that right now most people don't expect him to return so it's quite logical that he could come soon. Chuck wasn't claiming to 'know' the hour and the day, he has sharing that which he was convinced of in his heart, he's still alive and could live to see the Lord come for the church.
Your rational for abortion and homosexuality is pathetic. When you fail to see evil as evil because you prefer to be seen as an open minded tolerant of everything in the whole wide world type of person...it is vain and empty...you'll reap the wind.
Chuck said OUTRIGHT that the end of the world was going to happen before the end of 1981(?).
HE WAS WRONG. Apparently he does NOT have God's ear.
I would bet you and he share that same quality.
Yes, I TRY (and struggle to be) open-minded as it pertains to other people. This is not to say I am open-minded about some things. For instance, prejudice and hated.
God MADE homosexuals as they are. The sex drive that all adults feel are different for them than it is for you, that's all. A leading hypothesis suggests that those persons born as homosexuals are inclined that way as a result of receiving too little (gay males) or too much (lesbian women) testosterone as a fetus [I *think* I got that right---corrections, anyone?].
It is not "SATAN" or the boogeyman that bops these individuals on the head and turns them gay. It is a biological condition that is measurable.
The fact that you have been taught to be intolerant of this class of people (probably by your "pastor Chuck") is inexcusable in this enlighted age.
How do you feel Jesus would react to your prejudice of his [gay] children?
