What was Christ's mission in this world.
The spirit of the Lord is upon Me,because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor;He hath sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,to preach deliverance to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind to seat a liberty them that are bruised.Luke 4;18
In what condition are those who commit sin.
Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
John 8:34
Why was Christ's name to be called Jesus.
And thou shall call His name Jesus:for He shall save His people from their sins.
Matthew 1:21
What lies at the root of all sin.
When lust hath conceived it bringeth forth sin.
James 1:5
I had not known lust except the law had said,thou shalt not covet.
Romans 7:7
Note Lust,coveteousness and unlawful desires are only different names for selfishness,Selfishness lies at the root of all sin;and selfishness is simply the love of self to the disregard of the equal rights of others.
By what scripture is the equality of rights clearly shown.
Thou shall love they neighbour as thyself.
Leviticus 19:18
What rule has Christ laid down in harmony with this.
Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you,do ye even so to them.
Matthew 7:12
Note:Selfishness then must be uprooted from men's hearts before they reconize the equal rights of their fellow men.
Who alone can cleanse men's hearts from selfishness.
Neither is there salvation in any other;for there is none other name under heaven given among men,whereby we must be saved.
Acts 4:12
Who alone then can give men real freedom.
If the Sone therefore shall make you free,ye shall be free indeed.
John 8:36
Christ's mission

Not really following but it's a joke when he said he loves. 99% of his postings display hate for Christ. Sad thing is he is so blinded by the devil. This is crystal clear in Clearwater. Take care.

Where in hell did you get from that that he doesn't want you know that you incorrectly paraphrased him? He said, "You've incorrectly paraphrased me," Dimwit. And then you called him a liar.
This is the heart and mind of a Christian. He's trained in slandering his detractors, and his mind has been pureed into mush. This should cause any decent person to speak up and object. Look for the humanists here to do that, and the Christians to just watch.
"The end"? I hope so. We can do so much better.
Is this your idea of love? I would say not so much. Bigot? You bet.

I never called homosexuality a lifestyle, that was just the topic at hand.

No, not really. But maybe.

<quoted text> I never said anything about marriage, and also, I pointed out that I felt that consenting adults made a difference in making decisions for themselves, and that regardless of that, I also felt that the incest laws had a solid ground for the laws being as they are.
To clarify: The laws, I feel, are in place to protect those people who might be forced into a situation they would not choose for themselves, minus the coercion or manipulation. That applies to both minor and adult, too.
Honestly, do you ever not only take the time to read a response, but to reflect upon what a response means?
<quoted text>Again, I mentioned nothing about marriage, and incest does not require marriage for incest to occur.
I notice you see or read commentary and then place nonexistent claims into something other people say that was never there in the first place.
<quoted text> Then stop it.
Nevertheless, I'll go ahead and address your questions made in misreading what I wrote, and the erroneous conclusions you made concerning what I did say.
On with your marriage questions.
<quoted text> I agree, although as I stated previously and pointed out; I think consenting adults should be able to engage in many activities, but the issue of incest brings up considerations that may place - even a full grown adult, and certainly a minor - in a position of coercion, that would be absent were the people not related along familial lines.
<quoted text>
Probably due to some antiquated cultural provision in which it is seen as acceptable, and in that particular instance, it appears to be due to a religious cultural consideration(a belief)- just read the bible.
What a minute here.

I see...

"Consenting adults" is fine as long as they aren't related, right?

You're a hypocrite, dude.

You can't sit there and say that homosexuality is ok as long as they're consenting adults but incest is a no-no.

It's all or nothing, duder.

Any Such Thing As Greater Sins?(As told by Prophesied by Ezekiel)
Part 1

(Mine: I was posting with G about equality of sin but then I remembered that there are greater sins according to the scriptures. Just a little scripture reading in the Old Testament/Ezekiel 8... Obviously God was angry at the situation. So anyways, after the reading then going to fast-forward to NT... a short, study.)

__________

4 Suddenly, the glory of the God of Israel was there, just as I had seen it before in the valley.

5 Then the LORD said to me, "Son of man, look toward the north." So I looked, and there to the north, beside the entrance to the gate of the altar, stood the idol that had MADE THE LORD SO ANGRY.

6 "Son of man," He said, "DO YOU SEE WHAT THEY ARE DOING? Do you see the great sins the people of Israel are doing to drive me from my Temple? But come, and you will see even GREATER SINS THAN THESE!"

7 Then He brought me to the door of the Temple courtyard, where I could see an opening in the wall.

8 He said to me, "Now, son of man, dig into the wall." So I dug into the wall and uncovered a door to a hidden room.

9 "Go in," He said, "and SEE THE UNSPEAKABLE WICKEDNESSS going on in there!"

10 So I went in and saw the walls engraved with all kinds of snakes, lizards, and hideous creatures. I also saw the various idols worshiped by the people of Israel.

11 Seventy leaders of Israel were standing there with Jaazaniah son of Shaphan in the middle. Each of them held an incense burner, so there was a thick cloud of incense above their heads.

12 Then the LORD said to me, "Son of man, have you seen what the leaders of Israel are doing with their idols in dark rooms? They are saying,`THE LORD DOESN'T SEE US; He has deserted our land!' "

13 Then He added, "Come, and I will show you GREATER SINS THAN THESE!"

Fallacy of false dichotomy.

I've been thinking of naming three fallacies as the Trinity of Fallacies. I know I want to include the strawman, and the argument from ignorance, but I'm not sure on the third. I either want to include the fallacy of false dichotomy, or the non sequitur.

Do you have any idea which fallacies you commit most often? I'm going to start paying close attention to compile some statistics.

You know, even though "all or nothing" is a false dichotomy here, you got there without explaining how, so it's also a non sequitur.

Any Such Thing As Greater Sins?(As Prophesied by Ezekiel)
Part 2

14 He brought me to the north gate of the LORD's Temple, and some women were sitting there, weeping for the god Tammuz.

15 "Have you seen this?" He (The Lord) asked. "But I will show you even GREATER SINS THAN THESE!"

16 Then He brought me into the inner courtyard of the LORD's Temple. At the entrance, between the foyer and the bronze altar, about twenty-five men were standing with their backs to the LORD's Temple. They were facing eastward, worshiping the sun!

17 "Have you seen this, son of man?" He asked. "Is it nothing to the people of Judah that they commit these terrible sins, leading the whole nation into violence, THUMBING THEIR NOSES AT ME, and rousing My fury against them?

18 Therefore, I will deal with them in fury. I will neither pity nor spare them. And though they scream for mercy, I will not listen."

Ezekiel 8

Are you gonna start a Tide Score Board? lol

A great example of a false dichotomy is: "If you're not with us, you're against us." Which IS false - there's room to be neutral...

It seems like ole scar scar is the one promoting a false dichotomy fallacy. He says that any sex or relationship is ok as long as they're consenting adults as long as they're not related....

In this case, it is all or nothing. One cannot promote straight and/or gays sex & relationships using the "consenting adults" excuse and then say that incest is wrong.

Thanks
This is an entertainment site, you're not doing anything for the "GOD-concept" here, your effort is effortless.

So, are you claiming because you believe in a GOD you have a stronger ability to forgive and love?

Any Such Thing As Greater Sins?(As Prophesied by The Lord Jesus)
Part 3

20 Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.

21 “Woe to you, Korazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

22 But I tell you, IT WILL BE MORE BEARABLE for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you.

23 And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths. If the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Sodom, it would have remained to this day.

24 But I tell you that IT WILL BE MORE BEARABLE for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”

Luke 11

__________

All of those cities had sinned greatly against The Lord. Obviously, the cities of Korazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum will receive the greater judgement in The Day of Judgement ---> The Judgement Seat of Christ because of a greater sin. The Lord is simply forewarning them of their fate. He is not talking about those cities receiving any earthly judgement in their near future because if that were the case then He wouldn't have brought up the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, which had long since been destroyed back in the days of Abraham. Unfortunately, those people in Sodom STILL will have to face Christ. As great as their sin was... their judgement will be more tolerable than the others aforementioned.
