I thank God Annie J for people like you.<quoted text>
I am not sure what your response had to do with my post...there was nothing in it about homosexuals.
Nor does my posting a link to one political/religion site change the dynamics of this thread. There have been links posted to various topics here on this thread in the past...news...politics...curre nt events...music...videos...etc. ..etc.
Money, politics, power might not be a part of your faith but it is a part of all religions. History is history...we can run from it...we can pretend it didn't happen.
The conversations...which by the way...is the first time that I have posted concerning it...is about "church"...what is it...what meaning is being used by both parties...I voiced my opinion.
I also addressed the issue of how much influence does the "church" have when it comes to political issues...how it affects all of us...not just those within that faith.
I would have to ask...have you addressed others as you did me when they post something that you think is off topic?
I remember during the election and afterwards there were quite a few political sites referenced...how about the sports links that are left here???
I also am learning more and more as time goes by, of such faiths within the Christian branch which shock me.
There are many whose songs I have grown to love due to their content - as the child in me can still be seemingly gullible - but it is behind the scenes which does concern me. And one such faith which like so many, and began in humble beginnings, is now mega mega rich.
I don't doubt much of this wealth goes to aid others, but as it is classified a 'business concern' that mega wealth is tax free. I also don't know enough about the rest, except the pastor and wife live like a king and queen. I believe Jesus did not teach this was how he intended anything which represented him, was meant to be.
You, along with others turn over a lot of stones, only to find they are inhabited by one thing or another.
I like the text in the Bible that states a fact which is coming true to the letter.
"...there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed..."
Annie, we both know we love one another, and heaven knows you have the heart of loving others even termed 'our enemies'. For all those posts - and times in life - where you put your life on the dotted line to share, I know you are a Comfort to so many.
God Bless you Sister Friend.
