By the way, John, I have made the suggestion that these people read Lee Stroebel's 'Case for Christ.' I am sure you know the background of how that book came about. I find it amazing that anyone could dispute our HOLY, Sovereign God.

I am not amazed, but I am saddened and deeply concerned for the future of this country that so few people have the brains to just read the Bible and accept what it says, that Jesus is a false god. Blindly following a religion, simply because it provides a certain mindless comfort without effort required, does not bode well for the nation.

I, for one am not at all blind because I have the faith to believe. Intelligence? Billy Graham... to name one of many. Say no more - Satan has control over your BRAINS; Christ has NO control over YOUR heart.

Satan is a myth, and blasphemy to boot. The Bible is clear that there can not possibly a god of evil like the xian myth of Satan. What you are ignorant of is the fact that the Bible states that all evil as well as all good comes only from the God of the Bible.

"Christ" has no control over anyone's heart, since the Messiah of prophecy has not yet shown up. Do try to understand this simple fact: Jesus failed to fulfill all of the Messianic prophecies, thus it is impossible for him to have been the Messiah. The only prophecies that he DID manage to "fulfill" are the simple ones that have been fulfilled by thousands of Jews over the centuries: Jesus was a man; born to the tribe of Judah; and he entered Jerusalem. Big whoop. Since the gospels contradict one another, you can't even say with any certainty that he was of the Davidic bloodline. In point of fact, BOTH gospels prove that he was NOT qualified to be the Messiah, based simply on his lineage, regardless of which of the two (if either) was right.

"Based on my observations of the gay community since I came out at 18, I think allowing gays to be scoutmasters is like putting Otis the town drunk in charge of your bar’s liquor inventory."

you are spouting off a third or fourth generation lack of disciple.
since none of the generations of your family could handle it ,you expect all of us to conform to their new age whims. you are indirectly spoiling your child by excepting what you cant handle.
it doesn't make me an a$$hole for pointing this out.
I have been in the "dirt" with you , and I understand hardship.

One big problem is the fact that gays are banned from being Scout Leaders. So that means it's someone OTHER THAN GAY MEN molesting the boys.

Some free advice. THINK before you post something that makes you look as foolish as you do.

Colossians 1:16
New International Version
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

New Living Translation
for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see--such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him.

Galatians 3:28
New International Version
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

New Living Translation
There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.

If you want to claim to speak for God, you also need to review Matthew 25:31-46 (The Sheep and the Goats) as well as The Parable of the Good Samaritan.
