How does that fit in with "loving your neighbor as yourself"? Do you consider yourself evil when you willfully sin? What about the cliche..."love the sinner hate the sin"?
Your posts...as I read them...are troubling. You have gone beyond judging the sin and now seem to be judging the person. You have judged people to be worthless...at least that is how your posts read.
You call Alice evil and told HL that she disrespects people because of who she is. In both cases being lesbian is only a small part of who either one of them is...yet you judge them based on that small part.
I know...you call it love.
Read my post above to Boosts please, whenever you willfully engage in ANY sinful act that is evil, and you do so without caring, then that does MAKE you an evil person, even the saved sins here and there on either a minor level or ignorantly so, and we still have to repent from those as well if we want to draw nigher unto God and to be the best person that we can be in Jesus Christ, we are convicted and want to repent from such, and that is yet another purpose for God's Word to reprove us and clean us up by our submission to the Word.

Anyone who wants to continue on that sin knowingly without any conviction of the wrong that they are doing is very wicked, and I hold to what I have said previously.

Have a good day.

@NoStress...if you are reading along...
We have discussed this before...name-calling justified biblically. The "Jesus did it so I can too" excuse that so often is used by many has always seemed "not right" to me. In my search for answers to this I ran across an article that might be of interest to you. The guy the article is written about is not important but there were a few statements that were made that follows my line of thinking.
Here is an excerpt...
http://www.ruckmanism.org/ruckmans-attempt-to...
"Ruckman’s attempt to vindicate his name-calling with Scripture
·
On numerous occasions Ruckman appeals to Scripture in an attempt to justify his outrageous name-calling. It cannot be denied that on a few occasions our Lord used some tough language when dealing with certain people, most notably the Pharisees. However, our Lord is sovereign, and was consistently capable of expressing anger without ever committing a sin and could see the heart of the person he was judging. This cannot be said of Dr. Ruckman or anyone else. Also, Christ in his omniscience knew whether or not a strong denunciation in a given situation would be counter-productive or not in the long run. There were a significant number of occasions when Christ turned away from a confrontation.
Ruckman also compares himself with such Bible characters as Jeremiah, Elijah, John the Baptist, and Paul in an attempt to justify his behavior. Ruckman seems to believe that the occasional tough language of Bible characters vindicate him, but it should be considered that we do not know the tone of voice used or to what extent the vocabulary used in a different language and culture thousands of years ago was as offensive or rude as it may sound to us in another language and culture."
*****
Each time that I hear "Jesus did it so I can too" I wonder...
Are they raising themselves up to the level of Jesus or pulling Jesus down to their level.
LOL - Did you sense a butterfly on the wall my friend ;O) Thank you for the link, I will read it here in a few. I hope you are having a wonderful day today, and will get back to you soon.

Topix is 'Freedom of Speech'--

Just because we are CHRISTIANS, we still have that RIGHT. The right to have our opinions and the right to WRITE them on our post.

'Love thy neighbor' also means --Telling them the TRUTH' and the TRUTH does not sound good to the SINNER.

<quoted text> I understand what you are saying Booosts and I appreciate the civility of your post, but one thing that you must understand is that there is a vast difference between Mental Illness and homosexuality, the first thing that we were taught in training when I joined to work at the SCDMH in 1980 as a Mental Health Specialist ( fancy name for nursing assistants ) that there was a difference between mental retardation ( with NOW the more politically correct word being AUTISM ) and mental illness, A person acquires Autism at birth while mental illness can develop at anytime of a person's life, many say that homosexuality is also something that people are born with, but that is not really true, homosexuality is a sin, and one that the individual can free him / herself from if truly desired to do so.
And just as their fight for "equal rights" should not be compared to black people and the civil rights movement, it should not also be equated to mental health issues which is essentially a disease, one is biological, the other is a sin.
Peace.
The bottom line, though, Lawest, is that whatever various people classify homosexuality as, gays are first and foremost human beings, and I think on average, at least the gays that are well known by the world have exceeded many others in their chosen professions.

Some of the greatest people in the arts, music, and that we likely have all learned about from the past, were gay, though likely due to gays having mainly always been demonized they were not being as public about that as some do nowadays, because now they are protected by the law.

I will have to reject your diagnosis regarding homosexuality being a sin. It is an orientation, which like all sexual orientations, one can choose to act on or not, though most healthy humans will want to act on their sexual orientations in their lives, because whether some do not like to admit it or not, sex is probably one of th emain motivating forces behding a lot of what we humans do in our lives.

It would only be a sin, anyway, if the particular religion that called it a sin, was a legitimate following of a legitimate god, which has been proved to exist. Again, no such proven gods have been found.

So all of this is pretty hypothetical, and comes down to personal choices as to what we believe or do not believe, but in addition must obey the laws protecting all humans from danger.

The very bottom line is that most westernized countries are making all forms of gay oppression illegal, and so it will become an opinion that people can only hold in their heads but will not have any say in as far as how these people are to be treated, because all will be equal under the law.

But in telling them the "truth" one has to "know" that what they tell is the truth. So far nothing concerning God or the Word of God has been confirmed as being true. So everyone, believers and non-believers alike, are at some risk of thinking the "wrong" way on these topics.

I think without the knowledge of a higher truth, being verified, we are best to stick to what man has learned works best to keep us all safe while we live, and that is to not do anything to anyone else that might harm them, unless they are absolutely wanting that action to happen, such as any form of sexual contact, or even just contact between any two people, will always carry with it a certain element of risk, because all human beings carry many pathogens on or in our bodies that potentially could harm ourselves or others.

Yes, I understand, anyone that cherry picks the Bible and claims parts of it are passé while other parts are relevant is running out of gaps to stuff their god into.

It used to be considers blasphemous to put a lightning rod on a church. Well, lightning loves spires. And, now we know there are no gods responsible, and, every day, the goddidit excuse becomes more ridiculous.

But, you judgmental fools carry on. Watching you kill Christianity one post at a Tim is wonderful.

I'm sorry Booosts, but what Gays have contributed to society has nothing whatsoever to do with what is being discussed or the point being made, you hinge on the idea about "nothing about the Word of God has been confirmed as true", that is really becoming a weak and tired argument on your part and on the part of others, I've explained to you on more than one occasion why the believers know that God's Word is the truest thing of all as well as derived from the greatest source of wisdom of all, and again you'd have to be a partaker in Christ to understand or relate to what we are saying.

We are well aware also that gays are as much human beings as anyone else, and I do not condone the vilifying and violent acts perpetrated against them as I do not against anyone, but we have said nothing wrong in our assessment against their damnable lifestyle.

What I have learned is how concerned you seem to be about this. Does it affect you in some strange way? I am sure you can find something more constructive to talk about rather than your issues with my signature. That would be a welcome change.

Topix is "freedom of speech"? Topix has the right to monitor what we all say here based on what they find acceptable. Yes...we all have the right to voice our opinions under their guideline and to also respond under their guidelines.

Even under the 1st Amendment we have restrictions...

Telling the TRUTH? It is only truth as YOU see it. That truth not only varies from my truth but often varies even among believers. There are many Christians that do not express their love by making others feel worthless.

I am sure that you will call my disagreeing with both you and Lawest "cruel insults". When in actuality I am only using my "freedom of speech" to disagree.

While we are on that subject however...even your Bible does not give you freedom of speech.

My favorite…

Matthew 15:11

Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

And more warnings about what comes out of your mouth…

Matthew 12:36
I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak,

Psalm 19:14
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.

Ephesians 4:29
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Matthew 12:37
For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Colossians 3:8
But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth.

Even God does not grant Christians complete freedom of speech. On the contrary…he gives warnings throughout about what comes from your mouth.

Topix is lenient but even they monitor our speech. Try calling someone a whore that deserves rape…beating…death and see if they allow it.
