I know Lawest, I know... it is just my way of saying I care.
It is 6am Thurs now, and after a beautiful full lit sky all night, it is still not daylight, the birds have not woken, while it is very still. Make me think of “Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10
Sometimes I do not understand why even some Christians convey a degree of non belief – or is it lack of understanding – that we can and do see as Jesus said 'the kingdom of God, and do speak with the knowledge contained therein. Why it it thought of as a separate thing?
Luke 17
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
So many use Biblical text, even those of Jesus to suite interpretation of, and yet to understand them as a child, they are literal! Applicable in every sense of the word.
God Bless and trust you caught up with some rest.
Good morning ( here ) >>>>>Irrira< <<<<

Forgive me for taking this long to respond to your post. I know that you care my friend, and I appreciate that more than you know, regarding your point about those christians that don't seem to submit themselves fully to God's Word or really understanding it, I know that it doesn't sound practical to assess anyone's proclaimed walk with Christ as I know that many will see that as passing judgement, and it is true that none of us are perfect in the least, but I will say this, that many who profess to have God do not always have what they claim, and that by itself can usually signify a red flag in some cases, the Bible tells us to try the spirits to see if they be of God, and when you are Blessed of God to have the spiritual discernment to see these things, then usually so much is like an open book before you.

God is keeping me afloat my friend, and I'm glad to know that you are doing good as well. Peace and Blessings always.

The same could be said to you about guesses. You can not prove the bible to be false.
The correct word for the bible is "inauthentic," not "false." The bible is a forgery. It was not written by the deity it describes, which obviously doesn't exist, either. The book describes a perfectly loving, omniscient, omnipotent being that [1] wrote the book, that [2] wants us to know and love him,[3] and that governs our lives.

And yes, I can prove that those are untrue. Do I need to tell you how I know that all three are incorrect? I will if you like. I'll give you clues: the bible is filled with errors, the god fails to manifest itself unambiguously, and horrible things happen to people.

Incidentally, saying that I am also guessing - I had called your faith a guess - even if true, is not really much of a defense for your guesses. You're not affirming your faith based conclusions, but hoping to show that mine are on equally shaky ground.

And your point being?
So I'm a bigot in your opinion; do you believe your opinion counts?
Say it does count, tyou've established in your mind that I'm a bigot, so what's your next point?
For whatever reason I somehow think you could still make a positive contribution to this thread, but while I say this I wouldn't make a wager on it.
Shalom sir.

It's not an opinion, you are in fact, by definition, a bigot.

If I say that I just replied to your comment, is that an opinion or a fact? A fact; because I just replied to your comment.
If someone says it gets darker at night, would that be an opinion or a fact?
A fact.

don't get me wrong as i agree with you more so than i do some other 'christian' posers here, BUT can a person be born addicted to....say crack if their mother was using during pregnancy?
similarly, can a person possibly be 'born gay'/with a disposition towards uncleaness/homosexuality since sin is hereditary?:)
My friend, you're making some rather harsh statements of late. I was looking to see if you also brought along my old friend Padre Dominic Armando Del Muerte van Helsing with you, all guns blazing absent silver bullets. What has ticked you off so?

In either case, scripturally, it is said that the sins of the foreparents are visited upon the children even to the 3rd and 4th generation. Single parent homes don't help either, although many single do an admirable job raising their child(ren), a mother can't be a better father than a good man and a man cannot be a better mother no matter how hard he tries than a good woman. Children who grow up in single parent homes, gay tolerant homes or homes where a boy isn't scolded for wearing female clothes and underwear and a girl isn't scolded for wearing male clothes and boxers are at risk of experimenting with same sex relations or even becoming gay.

People say gay isn't a choice, but I ask them how so? Homosexuality is the sexual act, wanting intimate relations with or intimately sexual thought towards an individual the same gender. Therefore, if a man or woman decided to suppress these urges or thoughts, then you would not be able to tell, especially if the man doesn't act effeminate or the female act masculine if he or she is gay. It is >more so< a choice no matter how people twist it. It is the same way a man or woman can choose to be celebate.

Shalom.

Andrew (CS).

And what of a rape victim being forced into marriage with her rapist?
Or eating shellfish?
Or eating pork?
Or wearing mixed fabrics?
All those are supposedly equally sinful.
I see that you are going off on a tantrum now, if I thought that you really wanted to know these things for true spiritual edification, I would engage you in the discussions, but you really want to further another useless debate and argument, someone who really wants to know anything for an interest in being saved, you would have different questions going like what steps do you take to be saved, and also your questions would be more Christ related as well.

If you are honest about your queries, then fall on your knees and pray.

A fact.
So are you a filthy human being by definition?

filth·y
adj. filth·i·er, filth·i·est
1. Covered or smeared with filth; disgustingly dirty.
2. Obscene; scatological.
3. Vile; nasty: a filthy traitor.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/filthy

Number 1, covered or smeared with Filth.

You would agree anal sex between you and another man would leave Filth on you right?

So to call you a Filthy human being, is not an opinion, it's a Fact right? based on your reasoning?

another thought just came to me:

similar to how gays reserve the right to be overtly effiminate (gay male) or overtly masculine (gay female), a straight male or female reserves the right to be overtly homophobic!;)

What is your positive contribution? All I see from you is idle theological speculations. You argue over nothingness.

Theology is effete. Studying your bible is not meaningful however deeply you pursue it, and nothing useful has ever come from the practice.

Now that it's been brought to your attention, I'm sure that you'll agree that your theology is useless - unless you can offer us an example of something of value that theology gave man, or that you gave to the thread.

The bibles confirms you can not trust your feeling!
They can let you down!
Luke is a well educated physician a close associate of Paul. Luke wrote the gospel while Paul was in prison by the Romans about 60AD.
Luke confirms Jesus as the Saviour of the whole world.
That is the Facts!
The Romans also later woke up and realised the diety of Jesus and turned to Jesus as their God.
I find that amazing !!!!!!!!!
The Romans? Heh heh heh

.. you're being a very naughty little boy ..
You are lying as usual, I do not cast stones at anyone, and when I speak against homosexuality I speak based off of God's Holy Word on the subject, and the sexual immorality laws that you claim the Iranians are following is not in place when you are stoning and killing women, Christ does not condone such behavior in HIS people, they are following a Islamic based procedure, what about the men who commit sexual immorality in that region?

But they don't have that ability. Reason at some point the discussions with them become repetitive pointless irrelevant and a waste of time. But they write, and the Christians that feel a need to respond, respond.

Fact: Your response is really poor.
Another fact. You speak opinion because not everyone agrees what you say about me is factual.

Why not ask a question or make a comment that has something to do with the topic? I am not one who favors circular reasoning which you seem to enjoy so thoroughly.

If it makes you happy, I'm a bigot. So, what's your next point then?
