My friend, as I have told you before, it is a choice of where you want to go. If you want to go to the door of Heaven you'll need the Holy Spirit key. If you want to go to the door of Hell then you'll need the key of no Holy Spirit.
The fact that you say something doesn't make it true.

In your religion, god sends people to hell. You can spin it all you like, but there it is. I know it must be distressing for you to learn that your god is a sociopath, but life is difficult sometimes.

Hopefully the SCOTUS will take up the big issue in 2013.

I thought that SCOTUS would announce this year if they were going to decide whether to hear the case or not.

My friend, remember that Jesus does not send anyone to Hell, we send ourselves. I pray and talk to God each day, He always answers with time. Iam saved yes, I asked Christ to forgive me some time ago, this is why Iam here to try and spread His word and try and get others to see the good in Christ.
True Christians never say "You have to do this", we tell you that these are your options, choose carefully and no matter what you do Jesus will always Love you. This is showing Love. My friend, choose carefully on what you interpred, for the Devil causes much blindness in all that have not Christ in there Hearts. Iam not saying that you do not, but I warn you to be careful and trust in Christ, for He will show you Peace.
I have plenty of peace in my life and a close personal relationship with Jesus thank you. And, I must say your arrogance is outdone only by your poor spelling. You really should take up the practice of using a dictionary and a book on proper grammar.
You continually tell me and everyone else how the Devil is blinding them to this great truth you have. I can't see why you feel to superior, because I've heard these comments made over and over by other self righteous individuals, who also use the "my friend" condescending approach as though you are here to show everyone the error of their ways and how they can be as aware as you if they only learn to agree with your every whim. Boring.

The SCOTUS is thoughtfully waiting until AFTER the election to announce pretty much what has been expected all along, they aren't even going to dignify its passing by hearing it out. It's not an issue that ANY candidate wants to have tossed out there so unceremoniously right now. It's an October surprise being held over for the second week of November.

Nothing confirmed yet. So I was giving them another year... Big case, big ramifications.

You're going to die anyway, so what does it mean to you? I mean, if you don't believe in God or an afterlife, how does it buy you any protection?

Do you understand what a protection scheme is yet?
That's what god is running, "Pay the price I ask, or I'll kill you."

Well, you can see it that way, if you choose, I just don't see my savior sending anyone to eternal agony. The fact is they simply won't exist. You keep saying all you do as though you have it from God himself. Well, you spoke of the rapture and I'm sure you see that too. But, the fact is you're interpreting scripture to suit your own desire to say, I'm saved and you're not, I've got eternal happiness to look forward to and, unless you do what I say, you will be eternally subjected to horrible anguish and pain. Not my idea of Christian love, regardless of how popular it is with the rank and file.
But, "Love and worship me, or I'll kill you" is your idea of love?

You're going to die anyway, like I said how is it a protection scheme, since you don't believe in an eternal life.

No, it's what you see it as, but that's not what I feel. The creator wants perfect beings, meaning those free of sin, in the new world. It's not an either or, except for what you choose. If you ask forgiveness of sin, you'll have it and eternity, if you don't you simply won't exist after you die. You choose to believe you have no soul and there for cannot be losing anything. What's the big deal, it's your choice.

Wait a minute. Pascal's Wager said you have nothing to lose by believing. Are you saying you have nothing to lose by not-believing?

My friends, you have nothing to lose by believing, but much to lose when not believing. By believing, you gain the Blessings of God and the key to the door to Heaven. By not believing, you lose yourself in this world of fall and you gain the key to the door of Hell.

He only is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my Defense and my Fortress, I shall not be moved.(Psalm 62:6)

Despite everything my friends, YOU are all Blessings, YOU are all Beautiful and YOU all have a Loving Father awaiting YOU.

Kom, what does this have to do with legalizing same-sex marriage? Where in your bible does it say, "man shall not marry man, nor shall woman marry woman"?

My friend, you have asked this many times before and I have answered many times before. You know that God is against it, whether you believe in Him or not. You believe as you wish, but do not think Him a fool for you have been told truth and therefore have no excuse for your time of judgment.

Even after this, He STILL Loves you.

Marriage is a religious covenant between a man and a woman blessed by a religious faith. There is no form of religious faith that sanctions marriage by definition in any other form. Its that simple Gay Marriage is therefore impossible.
A civil union on the other hand is a form on contractual agreement between two people. That's the best you can do there. To call it marriage is to pervert the term. Why not then let me marry my sister or a father his daughter, or multiple wives?
Sorry marriage exists in only one form...the joining of a man and a woman.
Exactly! I totally agree!
