For your information, we did not get any information from Pat Robertson, for we do not even listen to his program at all. We told the forum that we got our information from a organization of which we support on all the topics that they are involved with. It is called ( saveCalifornia.com ), but the site is "NOT BORN THAT WAY". Pat Robertson may support this group of which we are not aware of, but that is not the issue here. Lesbians can be cured and I have heard many testimonies that homosexuals left that sin and had a difficult time forgiving themselves and also asking God to forgive them, but they did come out of the closet and became straight again. God loves you and he can heal you for God is the Creator of all things and he did not create homosexuals as we stated in the our last thread. He created a perfect world and then man began to disobey Him.
Not one person has ever had their sexual orientation changed through prayer, shock therapy, or any other method. At best, a person might be brainwashed into pretending that they have changed, but the simple fact remains that they are still aroused by thoughts of same sex relationships.

NO MORE gambits of no truth need to get people astray any more, FOR BEING ONE-SIDED IS BAD.

The people of the world need to do the right tings with the right direction by just looking into the UN, that UN must not make imbalanced way of viewing the world.

Because UN does not look into every country to say about something, about human rights violation and other matters, this is necessary to assess every country to make sense in order to know what countries have the MOST NUMBERS--big NUMBERS AND bigger NUMBERS IN TERMS OF SIZE OF POPULATION BEING the numbers RAPED AND ABUSED. Besides China, Africa, US would probably rank among the top of raping women and gays beside the abusing done to more and more, of lots of people more than other countries if they would let those raped and abused to talk without hassling them-- hassling is another form of furthering human rights assault in addition to already done.

If they have a few North Koreans coming out, staged by some orchestrators, to say about human rights violation and rapes in North Korea, they must have the people of every country to say about rapes, assaults, human rights violation of them, including US.
Besides China and Africa, US has more rapes and human rights abuse every day than most countries. US must not pose harassing women and these people coming out from prisons, harsh workplaces and bad households to speak about how bad their lives are treated by being abused.

Other countries should do the same to let their people come out to speak of their sufferings.
Let the global people view them all, as those who say a lot about North Korea, had better know the true facts that people recognize their ill-minds always speak unreal falsehood and deceits.

So, just pointing to North Korea is not what you think, as others abusing many is not told and by covering up, like US.
That is a fair game for people worldwide to view, evaluate and know them all, AND THEY HAD BETTER FIND OUT MORE. Just what country claim to be better in freedom, human rights, free liberty stands and so on, as US has done lots of abuses, come to always to speak what others with no rights? Without people looking into all, including US prisons and beyond, etc., just how bad they are, when rest don't know, BECAUSE simply they cover up and all those abused and not come to tell, then global people are kept in the dark as not worthwhile--THIS IS VERY BAD.

For you information, God did not cause these things of children being born with diseases, or homosexuals born that way or whatever, but if you read your Bible in the Book of Genesis, he says he made everything perfect and then woman decided to eat of the fruit that God told her not to eat and then she gave it to the man, then because they ate of the fruit, then SIN came into to world. God set the world in motion and told man that he was to Obey His Commandments, and he did communicate many times in the Old Testament to His Prophets, but sin became a continual sin and then God only communicated through His Word through the Prophets. There are more ways to sin today because there are more things available to cause them to sin as they did not have in the Old testament, such as watchng filthy movies, watching filthy channels on TV, Pornography etc. God does not cause anyone to sin, for he loves us and he only wants us to Obey our Hearts and if you search your Hearts, you will know if you are a Christian what is good and what is bad for us. When Jesus died, he said "IT IS FINISHED", he said all he could and did all he could to save his people and still they would not obey Him, but there is a remnant that do obey and those are the ones that receive His Son Jesus to help us live the way he created in the beginning. Jesus Blood is what saved us, but we are bought with a price of His Blood, so we MUST be in tune with the Holy Spirit in everything that we do and then we can live the life that God intended us to live when he Created Man in he first place. If you do not want to believe any of this, we cannot do anything about it and we would never try to push Christ on anyone, but if your Heart is telling you that you want to live a Christ Like Life, then receive Him as your Savior and he will help you change your life.
N O! There are NOT more ways to sin today. There are exactly the same number of ways, unless you want to try and claim that using a computer to take money out of someone's back account is a different sin from robbing them at sword point. I'd say that the Bible calls them both "stealing" and it is the same sin...

The Original meaning of shit was, "Ship High In Transit" placed on manure crates in shipping in the middle ages so fumes would not build up in the cargo hold and explode
The original meaning of Honeymoon was the father of the bride had to provide all the Honey Meade the new groom could drink for a moon ( month )
The word Bully originally meant a “good fellow”
Words change their meaning all the time and have all through history
Yeah, yeah and gay and queer had different meanings, but they also still mean the same as they originally did.

I would like to invite you to where I live in Knoxville, TN so that can personally carry out what you believe is God's commandment and "dispatch" me from the planet. If you have the gall to come here day after day and talk about gays not being natural; quoting from scripture, etc. then you shouldn't have a problem pulling the trigger to eliminate me. According to your interpretation of scripture, you'd be doing the world a favor.
You can send me a private message here on TOPIX and I will make sure that you have my address.
Should we set a date?
Now, if you want to consult God--instead of scripture--on how you should deal with homosexuals, that's fine by me. That's what I have encouraged you to do all along.
But if you are a strict adherent to scripture, then you know what you must do.

Hmmmmmmmmmm......something is odd in the way you responded. Not the typical Big D sound.....imposter perhaps....oh well....here's some history for ya kiddo.

http://www.lewrockwell.com/2005/05/thomas-woo...

It is all very well to point out that important scientists, like Louis Pasteur, have been Catholic. More revealing is how many priests have distinguished themselves in the sciences. It turns out, for instance, that the first person to measure the rate of acceleration of a freely falling body was Fr. Giambattista Riccioli. The man who has been called the father of Egyptology was Fr. Athanasius Kircher (also called "master of a hundred arts" for the breadth of his knowledge). Fr. Roger Boscovich, who has been described as "the greatest genius that Yugoslavia ever produced," has often been called the father of modern atomic theory.

In the sciences it was the Jesuits in particular who distinguished themselves; some 35 craters on the moon, in fact, are named after Jesuit scientists and mathematicians.

By the eighteenth century, the Jesuits

had contributed to the development of pendulum clocks, pantographs, barometers, reflecting telescopes and microscopes, to scientific fields as various as magnetism, optics and electricity. They observed, in some cases before anyone else, the colored bands on Jupiter’s surface, the Andromeda nebula and Saturn’s rings. They theorized about the circulation of the blood (independently of Harvey), the theoretical possibility of flight, the way the moon effected the tides, and the wave-like nature of light. Star maps of the southern hemisphere, symbolic logic, flood-control measures on the Po and Adige rivers, introducing plus and minus signs into Italian mathematics — all were typical Jesuit achievements, and scientists as influential as Fermat, Huygens, Leibniz and Newton were not alone in counting Jesuits among their most prized correspondents [Jonathan Wright, The Jesuits, 2004, p. 189].

Seismology, the study of earthquakes, has been so dominated by Jesuits that it has become known as "the Jesuit science." It was a Jesuit, Fr. J.B. Macelwane, who wrote Introduction to Theoretical Seismology, the first seismology textbook in America, in 1936. To this day, the American Geophysical Union, which Fr. Macelwane once headed, gives an annual medal named after this brilliant priest to a promising young geophysicist.

The Jesuits were also the first to introduce Western science into such far-off places as China and India. In seventeenth-century China in particular, Jesuits introduced a substantial body of scientific knowledge and a vast array of mental tools for understanding the physical universe, including the Euclidean geometry that made planetary motion comprehensible. Jesuits made important contributions to the scientific knowledge and infrastructure of other less developed nations not only in Asia but also in Africa and Central and South America. Beginning in the nineteenth century, these continents saw the opening of Jesuit observatories that studied such fields as astronomy, geomagnetism, meteorology, seismology, and solar physics. Such observatories provided these places with accurate time keeping, weather forecasts (particularly important in the cases of hurricanes and typhoons), earthquake risk assessments, and cartography. In Central and South America the Jesuits worked primarily in meteorology and seismology, essentially laying the foundations of those disciplines there. The scientific development of these countries, ranging from Ecuador to Lebanon to the Philippines, is indebted to Jesuit efforts.

The "deviation" from Scripture is entirely yours. There are no verses in the Bible that legitimately translate into a condemnation of homosexuality. None. Quite the contrary, the Bible CELEBRATES the marriage of David and Johnathan in 1 Samuel.
Secondly, all of the valid science to date shows a genetic connection to sexual orientation. So, if it is not just the random shuffling of genes for evolution, then it is the choice of the Divine. Sure, it is a man and a woman to make a baby, but the world most certainly does NOT need every person reproducing. Having a few non-breeders is a GOOD thing!
Oh, and finally, the Bible does not say abortion is a sin. The only place it really mentions it, it is no big deal.
I do agree with you except the part about David and Johnathan.

sheesh, you must have gone to the wrong site because there is testimonies and also doctors that have research genes and homosexuals did not get a gene to make them what they are. We will not discuss this with you any longer. We hope that we have not offended you in anyway, but my husband and I cannot change what God has revealed to us through His Scriptures. Thank you for all your comments, for we are still searching ourselves to know how much more we can serve our Creator.
