Jun 5, 2013 Full story: Lexington Herald-Leader 1,114

At least three churches in central Kentucky - including one of the state's biggest churches - have said they are cutting ties with the Boy Scouts of America following the organization's decision last month to allow gay scouts.

In my line of work, I thought I had come across some pretty toughies. Whoa - you are hard-nosed, and Satan-possessed. Miracles can happen. This would be one. Sorry you can't recognize the difference if you were to turn your life around. Look in the mirror. When you lie down tonight, I hope your mind is overcome with thoughts of how you are living and what a wasted life you are living.

And he is going to get much much hotter. I hate that you will remember saying these things one day when it is too late. It's like being on a futile rescue mission. That will have to be God's job.

I happen to hear that sermon myself. What is so difficult understanding the reality that there is No Other God like OUR GOD and the supporting reasons. You are either lacking in comprehension skills but more likely refuse to accept the ATTRIBUTES of the ONE almighty God. This is GOD; no other god in the world who is or ever was can compare. Because of the cross along with Christ's death, burial, and resurrection, this has to be true. You refuse to go to church, to listen to the message of the gospel. You are fooling yourself and it should be a matter of great concern.
That is your Christian God I am not badgering you about how you should believe differently that is your belief not mine. Stop trying to force me into your little religious box. To say that Buddisism, Native American beliefs are wrong flies in the face of what your god teaches. I don't refuse to go to church or listen to the message been there and done that really don't care for the T shirt.

LoL I thought too but I cleared the 51 mark so it can happen unless you plan on offing yourself when you turn 50 keep an open mind. Life is too short and it really does have some good points although sometimes I am hard pressed to find them but its there.

It flies all right. God says 'Thou shalt have no other god before me.''There is NO way to the Father except through the Son.' Sorry you didn't absorb what you heard when you were there IF you were in a Bible-based church.

"Going to church doesn't make you any more a christian than going to a garage makes you a car. Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does.

Your words mean nothing if your actions are the complete opposite. Having true faith in whatever you believe must be shown through actions; belief is only half the battle.

Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words, and your faith stronger than your feelings."

I like Luke 10:25-37

Messed up thinking, bud. Find the source of the Golden Rule for me, would you? Speaking of heaven as you do indicates you have NO idea what the description of heaven is.
Luke 10:25-37 is a good example of it. Don't know if that's the original source but it's a good example.

So is Matthew 25:31-46

I have a very good idea of what many ppeople THINK heaven is. Most believe it is the paradise we enter as a reward for being good souls and putting that goodness into practice on this palne of existence.

Which is why I have a hard time figuring out why people who hate me think I'd consider it a reward to spend eternity listening to them still complain about all MY sins while ignoring theirs.

Hope this helped clarify my thoughts for you.

You want to know about the 'Golden Rule.' You should look it up because you left the rest of it out -- oooh - God in HEAVEN? Jesus said I did not come to abolish the Law or Prophets but to fulfill them. You are totally uneducated about the Bible.
I am. Jesus didn't abolish the law? When's the last time you had pork chops, let women speak in church, wore mixed fibers and followed all the planting rules that are next to the clobber passages you anti gays find?

I've spend 50 years watching folks like you use the Bible as a weapon against anyone you want. So I began studying it when I was 8 as a form of spiritual self defense.

I've been on Topix lounger than you and have more experience in Bible verse battles.

No what you hate is that she doesn't care what you think or what your religion teaches. She's been screwed by it enough in her life. But we all know how much you'll LOVE telling all your friends at church what a good christian you were and how badly we treated you.

THAT is what you LOVE.

You worship your own piety more than you worship God!

It's God's job to do the rescue missions, not your ego!

She has a very STRONG dislike and resentment against chriStains like you. But not Christians like me.

So maybe God's trying to tell you something but you're too busy p[reaching you won't pick up the phone!

NO-NO-NO We do NOT get there because of what we think we can do to 'be good.' NOT at all what the Bible says. You are hung up on 'legalism.' WHEN Christ came, died for our sins, was buried and resurrected, HE provided a way for our sins to be forgiven- past, present, future. We ACCEPT HIM AS OUR SAVIOR. EACH has 'free will' to make that decision. The ONLY WAY TO THE FATHER IS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. You are assuming entirely the wrong premise. PORK, NOT CUTTING OUR HAIR, WEARING CERTAIN CLOTHING -- TOTALLY, TOTALLY IRRELEVANT -(legalism).

<quoted text>Sorry to interrupt but what do you mean when you said that people born with one particular genitalia can decide what gender they are im confused by that.If you have a penis you are male,if you have a vagina you are female.People in sparkles case who were born with both and by the way I understand your anger but I will address you directly,that is the physical what is shown on the outside.My understanding of transgendered is a person feels like they are in the wrong body,things don't feel right and I cant even imagine how awful that feeling must be.Sparkles can be anything she or he wants to be.
that's what I said, you misunderstood. I told her that I wouldn't accept people deciding in that case. born with a penis, you are a male...ect
in her case, its whatever they choose.

I think you have watched too much super natural.
I think maybe you could be hurt deeply, and I think church people are the ones who hurt you. btw, it seems it continues on this thread.
it does raise an eyebrow of concern when someone uses the name Lilith ,but it is used as a generic for a lot of young females when they seek to aggravate. I could think of a few worse names.
you do understand that whatever you as a person has done it can be broken regardless of what "commitment" you have made? its broken by the innocent blood of Jesus Christ. now you know im not talking about gays, lesbians, strippers ,drunks...ect. im talking about something totally different.

NOT BASED ON BEHAVIOR. If you are living a life without Christ, then you do not have HIM in your heart. He gives you a 'new heart' when you accept Him as your Savior. Now, you are unable to change completely overnight. It takes time for that 'transplant' to take place. You would do that by being in a place where you worship and learn more about Him. WHY would you NOT be willing to go to church. Does not make sense. The Bible clearly states that Christ indwells us = the Holy Spirit comes into our heart. Budda cannot indwell someone's heart; Mohammad cannot indwell a Muslim's heart. There are fruits of the spirit - you mentioned faith. What is it that causes you not to carry through with it?

honestly, I think you both are arguing over the SAME things, but at different points in your journey of knowing Christ. I am in no way speaking relativism .
I remember when my 13 year old son was a baby....:) I gave him formula, but as he got bigger I added cereal to that formula because he became more hungry and the formula didn't satisfy him anymore. if I would have jumped a step ,and stuck a spoonful of formula in his mouth...he would choke!
we have got to calm down, and do everything in good time.
