What does that prove HL? So you asked them to back off so you could engage in the experiment for your own reasons and you know it wouldn't look credible at all if those two were going out of their way to ruin it. You didn't want them handing me an excuse. You experiment was all over the place and was done so you could play judge and jury to every one of my posts.
Your judgment is horrible. As you saw, Happy Lesbo was trying to get us to back off from provoking you, not to give her free access at you. You also saw that she tried to recruit my help, which I declined. She had no malice. Her efforts were sincere.

You have some habits of thought that keep you trapped in your losing ways. Happy Lesbo said you weren't ready yet. She's an optimist.

Can you read?

I have already spoken out on it in here many times

I wasn't going to debase the subject or myself by getting into a conversation about it simply to play your games

You are a little weasel who thought someone who had spoken out against prejudice might be afraid to do so again in front of other people. And the only reason you knew my position is because I did what I thought was right in front of you once already. And taking the information you learned you hoped to use it against me. But like I already said several times...pay attention...I have already spoken out on it many times in here and elsewhere and everybody already knows how i feel

So your test backfired. It exposed a coward except the coward was you. Unable to compete on merit you stoop to these lowlife tactics

Grace (Hebrew: Khen and Rachamim). The interesting thing I've heard on this Topix thread and among many Christians is that they believe that one they have Grace, they no longer need the Law. Does Grace void the Law?

Grace is not given to sinners which are the Lawless. Only those that recognize the Law and keep the Law can be given Grace. Grace is the unmerited and undeserved favor of the Most High (Yahweh Elohiym), for it is only when one breaks the Law one can be given Grace. If the individual or people are Lawless then they cannot be given Grace. Grace is given when one breaks the Law, but it isn't a free pass for one to continue breaking the Law.

I remember earlier in the thread I gave an example of Grace in this way:

A man is driving down a 55mph zone doing 90mph. Worse, the man ran a red light though it appeared that there were no cars in sight at that time of the night. He was pulled over by a police officer and was asked for his license and registration. The officer looked at the man's documents and asked the driver why he was doing 90 in a 55 zone. The driver's excuse was also a poor one, but he was honest. He said to the officer that he was hurrying home to catch the 4th quarter of the Redskins v Cowboys game. The officer shook his head and considered asking the man to step out of the car, but didn't. He told the man that the offense was bookable especially because he broke two Laws (running the red light and exceeding the speed limit). However the officer smiled and said, just don't let me catch you doing that again, and told the man to drive safely and go home.

Now, the example of what the police officer exhibited was Grace, especially so because the man didn't deserve to be let off with just a warning. Yet, because the man was given Grace, does it mean he can do the same thing again the next day and deserves to be let off with just another warning? Does it mean if he sped off and was stopped by another police officer a few miles down the road that he wouldn't get a ticket? Because he was shown Grace, does it mean the Law is no longer in effect or that he shouldn't still obey the Law?

This is one solid reason why people should be able to recognize false teachings. It is in these times that the False Prophet will go around to deceive many. This OSAS business is dangerous. It gives many Christians license to sin believing that Grace voids the Law, hence thinking they won't get into trouble for breaking the Law. Is church Law equal to or better than The Law established by the Creator? Who has the ultimate say; the pastor or The Savior? So one has to wonder; why are people being so passionate and excited about the Law being abolished? Why would people want such a thing? One must examine their motives, just as in society, why would a thief want the laws of society broken down. Are these the same Christians who normally agree with or are in support of abortion, homosexuality and are usually not pro Israel?

In the end, the sheep will indeed be separated from the goat just as the wheat will be separated from among the congregation of the tears. It is astonishing to me that Christianity, a so called Abrahamic religion resembles anything but Abrahamic, wants also to separated from His Law of The Most High. The secularists love when christians don't adhere to Law because they themselves are Lawless.

Shalom.

Andrew (CS).

you comparing the civil rights movement with the homosexual lifestyle?

no where in the bible it say a person race is a sin. the bible clearly state man to man is a sin.

you creating a false equivalency because you want to believe you sexual choices and lifestyle is the same as the civil rights movement. it not. the civil rights movement is to be celebrated, the homosexual lifestyle should be condemned.

the only speaking out that jesus follower writer skombolis should do is condemned you lifestyle for the sin it is and not be scared what bullies like you think.

Skom, you need to develop a backbone; character; integrity. You need to be able to take a stand for what you consider to be right, without fear of what others may think.
.
You are clueless

Everybody already knows my position

And what kind of unethical people, not knowing that, would try to "out" someone putting them in conflict with others because the person shared to them he disagreed with what how some in his faith handle this issue?

And who are you kidding? That you would do this in the middle of a personal fight and you want anyone to believe it was for any reason other than that?

Like I said, I had no fear of speaking out since my position is well known. In fact, I spoke out just two weeks ago when you asked before this last time and specifically mentioned how C.S. felt about it

Both you and Catcher's motive;s are disgraceful. You should be embarrassed. I am embarrassed for you

WARNING

While I have no problem speaking my mind in front of anyone and on any subject I know sometimes it can be difficult for people to open up and some people would prefer conflict. That is ok. Different strokes

But know if you come forward on something out of conscience in front of HL or Catcher they will seek to use it against you at a later date if they ever come into conflict with you. Even if you were speaking out in defense of them or agreeing with them

oom. So just know these are theApparently they feel they a right to force others to live up to the standards they set for speaking out on what is right. And they have no problem trying to embarrass someone or force their hand so they have no choice but to either look like they are avoiding a question where some will assume it is because they are a bigot or they have to announce their position putting themselves in opposition of others.

Like I stated, for me it made no difference as it was only 2 weeks ago I stated my position and everybody in here knows it. But know the kind of people you are dealing with and don't put yourself out on a ledge if you can't do so in front of everybody in any room at any given time because people like this will use it against you.

It is sad that someone would try use another speaking up for what they think is right against them at a later date for personal reasons. And these are people who heap praise upon those who agree and gang-attack people who don't on many things so one might even feel more inclined to admit how they feel if it is going to get a good reaction. That plays no role for me with them as I have done it in every room despite the crowd but I know it is human nature at times and this is what these two are like. It is what it is. Just be aware of what it is

I don't think that Peter was ever in Romeeither...jist more cathaholic lies near as I can tell.
You're right. He wasn't.

You see, what a lot of people don't know is that there's been an ongoing, internal argument, since the conception of the Roman Catholic religion, as to who that actual so-called "successor" of Peter was. Some say Linus. Others say Clement I. Now, here's one interesting point. Both names, "Linus" and "Clement," appear in the bible. So, it's no wonder, to me, that these would be the men that they argue about. The supposed third "pope's" name doesn't appear in the bible, so nobody argues about him. His name was Anacletus. But, in the so-called "official" list of "popes," which is even disagreed upon within the Roman Catholic hierarchy, Linus is believed to be Peter's successor. Then, Anacletus. Then, Clement I.

The greatest opposition the Roman Catholic religion has is the Greek Orthodox religion. Some might say that the Greek Orthodox has been around from even before the Roman Catholic religion's conception. The Greek orthodox has been keeping records, too. And it's the Greek Orthodox that began the argument, contending that Linus wasn't Peter's successor, after all. And because of the Romans Catholic religion's interest in political affairs including wickedness that, even then, the Roman Catholic religion was being accused of, some might say that the Greek Orthodox religion was the first to disassociate themselves from the Roman Catholic religion. This disassociation has been the cause of many "wars" between the two.

It's the Greek Orthodox religion that also exposes that the first official "pope" of the Roman Catholic religion is, actually, Sylvester I. Sylvester I was the man that was appointed leader of the newly-founded religion during the council at Nicaea. It's also the Greek Orthodox religion that made it known that the title "pope" wasn't used before 304 AD, by Marcellinus. In the meantime, many don't realize that according to Christendom history, there's always been two "popes." One "pope," which the world recognizes, is the so-called "bishop of Rome," while the other and according to "Eastern Christianity," is the so-called "bishop of Alexandria."

My question is this: If the Israelite priesthood lost the kingdom of "God" due to unrighteousness, then why shouldn't we believe the same happened to the Roman Catholic religion considering her tumultuous history? I mean, if anything, wouldn't this explain the conception of the so-called "Reformation" and "Protestant" movement?

.. the comparison is valid ..

"I believe all Americans who believe in freedom, tolerance and human rights have a responsibility to oppose bigotry and prejudice based on sexual orientation."

"Homophobia is like racism and anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry in that it seeks to dehumanize a large group of people, to deny their humanity, their dignity and personhood."
