And that's exactly why Gods going to destroy vicco. The bible says queers are a abomination and he has nothing for them. Why to you think he destroyed Sodom and Gormorrah. Just wait a natural desaster who soon happen to vicco. And also the bible warns of ppl who talk about peace.

Was Jesus big on blasting those who treated others - even those society rejected - with respect and dignity?

There doesn't seem to be anything Christian about the way you think. I would pray for guidance if I were you.

Because of inhospitality to strangers, NOT homosexuality. Read your Bible and learn.

Why did God destroy Joplin, Mo. a couple of years ago? THAT city is smack dab in the middle of the Bible belt.

Why did God destroy the Jersey Shore? I don't recall them being especially gay out there. That's because God doesn't cause natural disasters, air movements do.

Listen, haters, we're famous now !!!! The New York Times and MSNBC has been discussing Vicco. The Colbert Report was at the last Vicco city hall meeting. I heard that Vicco is even getting it's own reality show soon. Gay Love is putting Vicco on the map, folks. Deal with it !!!!

I thought God destroyed Sodom so that Lot could find a cave and have sex with his two daughters after he got drunk.

Why do you folks always leave out that part?

The Bible also says:
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

It also says:
Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work, To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men....But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain. A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

BTW have you made sure your head is covered everytime you enter the tabernacle? Do you wear mixed fibers? Eat catfish or shrimp?

a sodomite is a male temple prostitute.

http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/l...

this is what romans ch 1 is speaking of: temple prostitution.

Romans 1:23
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man,

idolatry is strictly forbidden.

Colossians 3:5
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

the mark of the beast is idolatry

http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/l...

the mark of the living ONE

http://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/l...

there is no rest for those who worship the image of the beast who once was, now is not, yet will come. the one you worship, even the beast.

Ecclesiastes 3:18
I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

some will wake to ever lasting life
others to ever lasting shame.

some will be enraptured
others will be left behind.

some will shine like the stars on that great and terrible day.

it's always darkest before the coming of lucifer, the bright and morning star.

Job 29:3
When his candle shined upon my head, and when by his light I walked through darkness;

Psalm 97:4
His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

You have one very weird religion. You speak of a God that Loves, yet one that will destroy you unless He's obeyed. Where's the "free will" in that equation? Not only that but He doesn't even make sure all His followers follow all His rules, and even contradicts many of His own rules. Yet somehow you all get a "get out of jail free card" by simply saying you believe in the writings of Saul while you treat people entirely opposite the way Jesus says you should.

I love this Bible passage.
English Standard Version (©2001)
“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
"Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.

Holman Christian Standard Bible (©2009)
"You are blessed when they insult and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of Me.

Which reminds me. With so many different versions of the rule book, which one is the correct one?

why do you worship the beast and not the pattern from which jesus' similitude was made?

hebrews 7
15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,

16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.

Here is another thing that folks like that one can't explain. If Jesus created a new Covenant and all those old rules from the O.T. don't apply then why do they bring up Old Testament stuff?

Perhaps because they aren't as "free from sin" as they want everyone to think they are. They like WEARING their Sunday Best but can't quite seem to figure out how to LIVE their Sunday Best.

I worship God. Not your ideology.

Where were you when He made Heaven and Earth?

Judge not lest ye be judged.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Sweetie my family roots go back to the panhandle of West Virginia. I've experienced all sorts of "Christian Churchers". After 50 years of abuse from people like you I've come to know the Bible fairly well. It's a very inspiring text. It contains much truth. I can lob chapter and verse just as easily as you can. Your ability to quote scripture doesn't make you an expert on God, morality, and salvation anymore than my ability to sing the Hallelujah Chorus makes me a Christian or a Mormon.

If you want to believe a story about a God that can cause a woman to gave birth without having sex, then it should be possible for the same God to create men who love men and women who love women.

I'm not a priest and don't claim to speak for God like you do. I simply speak what God has placed in my heart and soul.

the thrones, principalities, dominions, are gnostic terms.
