So this omnipotent God does nothing for the offender? Isn't everyone an offender according to Christianity? Makes no sense.
It makes no sense to you because you don't bother trying to understand. All you do is mock.

God allows is free will, if He "did something for the offender", He'd be disturbing that free will.

I don't. Some things are better not forgiven.

@ Pilgrim (1 more) I Kings chapter 22 (the whole chapter...priceless):

"The king of Israel answered Jehoshaphat,“There is still one man through whom we can inquire of the Lord, but I hate him because he never prophesies anything good about me, but always bad. He is Micaiah son of Imlah.”

==========

Also... Jeremiah chapter 37. Being a prophet of the Lord in that time has been romanticized but it actually was a deadly occupation of sorts. It got so bad in Jeremiah's time he actually said that he wasn't going to speak the Word of the Lord anymore... but couldn't help it because the Word was like fire in his bones (as an euphemism)...

Jesus: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing."

THE PARENT CAFE
Parent-Led Effort to Keep Families
Profound change starts with meaningful conversation. Across South Carolina, parents are engaging in lively, real conversations to keep their families strong. These conversations are called Parent Cafés, and they are transforming parenting education and efforts to prevent child abuse and neglect.
Parent Cafés are driven by the knowledge that parents can, must, and do tap into their wisdom and resources in order to strengthen their own families. Parent Cafés take place at early childhood centers and other friendly environments. Guided by trained Parent Hosts, parents gather in small groups and explore questions that really matter to them, questions that they genuinely want answered. Those questions deal with:
• Taking Care of Yourself
• Being a Strong Parent
• Building Positive Relationships
• Developing a Solid Education Plan
• Being Aware of Support
We gather and share the group’s wisdom and discoveries. Conversations are the foundation for individual action and community building.“Through these meaningful conversations, parents are working to build six protective factors that strengthen their families: strength and flexibility, friendships with other parents, knowledge of child development, supportive services, and the ability to help their children communicate and give them the love and respect they need” according to the Center for the Study of Social Policy. Parent Cafes tap into the collective wisdom that is present in every community. As parents lead their own learning and growth, they gain confidence, recognize what they already know, and realize what supports they already have around them. They become clear about what their families’ challenges are. With other parents, they devise ways to solve problems and resolve issues in their own families. They identify issues and find ways to address them, committing to individual action. And they build trusting relationships, social support, and connections with other parents.
In the supportive environment of the Parent Café, parents come together to deal with the fears, pressures, and challenges that many have struggled with alone. Through the Parent Café process, parents move beyond isolation to give and receive the support they need to keep their families strong.
Contact Info:[email protected] Want to host a café at your agency, church or in your neighborhood? All you need is the willingness to have a conversation! We will do the rest.

1. A graduated rod for measuring the depth or amount of liquid in a container, as of oil in a crankcase.
2. Slang A person regarded as foolish or contemptible.

I'm gonna let RR pick whatever definition he thinks is applicable to him!

I have always liked that word...it says so much in just two syllables.:-)

When I was a little girl growing up we had this long stick that we would put in to the cistern to see how much water we had left...I loved that "dipstick".

I used to call my grandson "dipstick" when he did something really silly. One day I called one of the other kids a "dipstick" and my grandson broke out in tears. When I asked him why he was crying..."My name is dipstick...you can't call him a dipstick". It is a name of endearment between the two of us.

Being homosexual is not an opinion. It's not a lifestyle. It's not a religion. It's not something to be agreed with or disagreed with. It's not even something to be discussed.
It is what I am. I am what it is.
It is what you are because you simply CHOSE to be a homosexual. In the same way, a witch is a witch because he/she chooses that course or was brought up in it. But a witch can stop being a witch if she CHOSE to do so. In the same way, if a homosexual wanted to... they can choose to live a different lifestyle as evidenced by the testimonies of many ex-gays.

I remember reading a story about some elephant syndrome. When born and brought up in captivity... those who held the elephant would tie a small rope around one of their legs to keep them from wandering off. So they grew up like with cord being there. After awhile, the people would take the cord off. Why would they do such a thing? Because after awhile there isn't any need for a cord because in the elephant's mind... they are still bound with the cord.

But truly, they are free from the cord. All they have to do is walk away even though they may get beaten by their captives.

Just a warning though: The Devil will use his messengers to bring doubt to you... those subjects could be anyone... people (some christians and some Non).
I don't know if you ever heard of a singer name Vanity. She used to sing with Prince and was very, very... let's just say "loose". Prince gave her that name, Vanity. But later on she gave her life to Christ.
Because of her past erotic nature and past videos are in the public domain... The Devil will use those and all her past sins against her, for example to try to bring her down. Much in the same way, don' be surprised if the Devil uses those subjected to it to try an bring you doubt also. When the the Devil reminds you of your past... remind The Devil of it's future.

"In 1995, she said, "When I came to the Lord Jesus Christ, I threw out about 1,000 tapes of mine — every interview, every tape, every video. Everything."[7] She has stated that she has chosen not to receive any further revenue from her work as Vanity, and has cut off all ties with Hollywood and her former life in the music business.[8] After a kidney transplant in 1997, she decided to devote her life to evangelism. She now speaks at churches across the United States and worldwide."

.. since Catcher's post was not directed towards you personally, how is a lie? Do you deny that some people on this thread have been judging and condemning ??..
Its a lie as he is speaking about Christians on this forum. "For many of these people (read people that say homosexuality is a sin) it's all about judging and condemning. Might have missed the many Christians that say Jesus gives a person a new life if they are willing to confess they are a sinner and no longer want to live that way. His post is bunk as everyone I've seen speak of sin also speaks of the way out of it.

God allows free will, unless it doesn't. Assuming of course that God doesn't know the future. In any case, there are many examples in the Bible of God interfering with free will. Including a particularly evil example in Exodus where God took away Pharaoh's free will for the express purpose of killing innocent babies and children.

Also, isn't God presumably interfering with free will when it answers prayers?
