I do not want you allowed near anyone's children, gay, straight or otherwise, you proselyte some pretty ugly ideas in the name of God that they really don't need to hear. If you have kids, keep them as far away from other folk's kids as possible, you've likely already poisoned their minds too and that kind of toxicity really needs to be kept in check.

I'm sure your local Klavern offers a youth program that you and your lost children would be happier in than an open and accepting Boy Scouts.

I do not want children exposed to their perversion. O, you silly boy. Generally a man acts like a man instead of some misfit trying to sound like a woman and dressing like a woman. It is perversion.
I do not want kids exposed to your perversion of the Christ's teachings into something so hateful and morally offensive. But in a free society we have to learn to cope, it's not like I'm dictating that you be locked in a closet, just wishing you would find one and close the door behind you.

Sweetie, there are men who look like men, act like men, sound like men and you'd be a damned fool ever to confuse them with actually being one.

I seriously doubt any one of you here know what a Christian is or have ever met one.
Jesus is returning soon now. The second woe is present. There's little time left; very little.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

None. Jesus is the way truth and life. You won't find it in a denomination.

Jesus said I am the way; no man cometh to me except it were given him of my Father. Few have been call or heard the calling. You can not save yourself. there is nothing you can do. It is totally by the grace of God. You cannot choose God; God can choose you. Unless God gives you understanding, you won't have it.

Only one Bible; God only wrote one Book. One must follow scripture; you can not choose God; God can chose you. Elect means chosen.

Which dictionary? There are many & some with slants.

"Elect". Well, that cinches it. Why is it that everyone who believes in heaven thinks he's one of the heaven-bound?

I guess if God doesn't pick you, you'll just be warming the bench. So the message here is don't bother DOING anything about it.

God "wrote" a ton of contradictory stuff. Which biblical bits are you actually following?

Isn't it the point in believing in something like "heaven", that by believing in it and acting accordingly to whichever rules you choose, it is your inevitable reward? Why, other than masochism, would anyone want to believe in a version of God that hates them and doesn't want them in "heaven"? Other people fine, but you've chosen to be good to your version.

this dictionary: Happens to be by Noah Webster

ELECT', a. Chosen, taken by preference from among two or more. Hence,

1. In theology, chosen as the object of mercy; chosen, selected or designated to eternal life; predestinated in the divine counsels.
2. Chosen, but no inaugurated, consecrated or invested with office; as bishop elect; emperor elect; governor or mayor elect. But in the scriptures, and in theology, this word is generally used as a noun.
ELECT', n. One chosen or set apart; applied to Christ.

Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth. Is. 42.
1. Chosen or designated by God to salvation; predestinated to glory as the end, and to sanctification as the means; usually with a plural signification, the elect.
Shall not God avenge his own elect? Luke 18.
If it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matt.24.
He shall send his angels--and they shall gather his elect from the four winds. Matt.24.

I see.... just completely dodge any effort at a cogent answer. You're a philistine and a phony.
