<quoted text>According to the good book, david committed a sexual sin, what happen to him as a result of that sin?
The good book states:"There are none righteous", humans will often choose what is good for the flesh over a GOD. Wanting to be goodie-goodie is not actually being goodie-goodie.
Pointing to the bible means what?..the bible story states, david had a relationship with a GOD, yet he chose the flesh over a GOD.
You express in terms of yourself being righteous,..are you?
God forgave David his sins because David asked Him too .

David was very important in the whole works of Jesus comming to be IN The flesh. BUT God OFFERS that SAME forgiveness to each of us.

Why say that same gender sex is any more "unwise" than any other sexual immorality? Is sex outside of marriage any less of a sin in your opinion?
I would be curious to know the statistics concerning sermons preached against homosexuality vs premarital sex and infidelity.
For many years the church has focused on homosexuality to the point that they failed to realize that "sexual immorality" was growing at a rapid rate within the confines of the church.
The states with the highest consumption of online porn are also the states that are the most religious. Some churches have finally opened their eyes and are taking steps to combat the problem.
Sad fact is...those Christians that are addicted to porn are also the least likely to seek help. They live in fear that their ministers...their fellow church members...will find out. They know that there are those that will judge them...condemn them...
IMO...these types of "sexual immoralities" are less likely to be discussed from the pulpit because it would hit home with to many of its congregation...might empty out a few pews.
Those sermons are preached ((((Annie)))))

People choose carnal pleasure over God's commandments.

Be careful of who we LEARN from--Satan can disguise himself as a sweet good non-christian as well as a an ELECT Christian---fooling even the ELECT in Christ. Satan wants US to question our siblings in Christ and OURSELF.
Satan makes us ask and think:
Are we saying things right as a Christian?
Are we making insults ?
Are we not acting perfect?
Was that your opinion or was it Bibical?
You need to reprimand him for that
your right, they are wrong.
Satan can cut down Christ in sweet ways , and you don't even realize it is a cut-down.(satan, is sneaky and good at his betrayal)
Thank you for your counsel (((((Sister))))))

Trust me when I tell you that they were not SWEET behaving non Christians (c: and they did NOT like being told that God was using them either .

It was in reading their accusations against many of the self claimed Christians - that I had view of the points that we all need to know.
Christians can and often times ARE- the biggest detractors from Christ- due to their misbehavior and mistreatment toward others.... all "In The Name Of God". Instead of them using God's mandates regarding our treatment of others- the flesh kicks in ... just like it does in non Christians. argumentitve

I don't understand false science. Logicaly and scietificaly, we can not even exist. This came from this and that came from something else and it came from something else and that continues endlessly. So science says that something comes from nothing, An absolute "vacume" is created and there is nothing and something comes from that nothing. Well actualy science shows that the nothing has vacume energy and that is where the something comes from. So, we continue, where did the vacume energy come from and where did that come from etc. etc. etc. it continues on. Logicaly we can not exist. Yet, I think, therefore I am, descarte concluded. Logicaly, we can not find the answer to origin using the logic of science. I chose to look a different direction. Faith in a God that is beyond our comprehension and a spiritual realm that is not seen. That is governed not by the logic of this world, but the logic of an all knowing, all righteous God. Whose wisdom leaves even the wisest among us looking foolish. A God who created this world and all that is in it. To me science is interesting. But, God is Awesome.
I see you doing what all believers seem to fall into on this site, and that is making one statement that completely throws out your next statement.

You state that science says that something came from nothing. Perhaps someone may have said such a thing, but I am not aware of any science that suggests something came from nothing. My understanding is that something always comes from something.

On the other hand, the Creation story does say that something came from nothing.

In the beginning, etc. etc. suggests at one time nothing existed. Nothing means not any thing at all; not even an invisible superbeing. If there was an invisible superbeing then that would not have been nothing.

However, ignorming the impossibility of a God when nothing existed, and assuming we can overlook that, then God created everything else from nothing. We still end up with all that we are awware of now,and all that has been known to man before us having come from "nothing".

It seems that science is on the right track, though I can accept that it very likely will never find a beginning point, because the people who do the science have finite lives, and so to be able to go far enough back or far enough out from here to see what is on the other side of that, is likely impossible.

Since man has done thousands of things that he once claimed were impossible, or he just never made any claims because likely he did not have the knowledge to imagine many of the things we have today, then I could be wrong, and man will find a way to go beyond what seems impossible today.

Anything that man finds, even if man was to find that actually a God does exist that actually did create everything, rather than what man has written from his imagination, would be a step forward.

Since it is pretty well certain that all concepts of God that man has today came from the imaginations of men, and since not a single one of the gods has ever been proved to exist, even though billions do believe in some of them, it does seem to lean very heavily to suggesting that a god is an imaginary entity, that actually does not exist. I can't prove that to be true, however.

It may be considered a mortal sin by a small percentage of those who believe in a God, but that does not "make" it a mortal sin. It is most likely that man made the laws, that made homosexuality become a "mortal sin" in the first place.

Man has advanced a lot in his knowledge today than when those ideas of what is right and wrong were first written about. We now know that homosexuality is not something one decides to do because it is "evil" and some people seem bent on being evil. We know that homosexuality is a natural orientation of a certain percentage of all populations of the humans in the world, with a certain fewer number due to their being killed by their fellow humans in some countries.

Yet you can't explain how I'm being a bigot whereas I can do so easily.
That's because I'm not a bigot.
See, when you can't back up your claims it means that your claims are invalid.
I"m sorry Lacez, but we are all bigoted toward our own perceptions of reality, correctness, and truth. It is inevitable. I try not to draw lines, as I am not all knowing, so who am I to make that judgement as absolute truth and incontrovertible, unless it should affect my own ability to live as a free person in this life. To me, it is neither important, nor does it require me to worry or obsess about what or how someone else decides to seek happiness in their existence. Maybe because I have grown up in the midst of it all, and had the opportunity of knowing and sharing both ends of it with you all. I have never been disrespected in the 50 years of it by any of the many folks I was associated with, and we were always comfortable in each others' company. I never understood the hatred.

Yes, we have a right to insist on parity. Christians want to be able to say "Jesus is the reason for the season" on a billboard, but call then retorts like "You know it's a myth" inflammatory and insensitive.
And they want to say that their comments about gays are not bigotry or hatred, but that comments about Christian homophobia represent intolerance and Christian bashing.
Now that we have a voice, there need be no special privileges granted to Christians any more.
And yes, ridicule is entirely appropriate, as when people who believe things for no reason at all demand exacting scientific proof for contradictory positions: "Prove it!"
Or people that give no account of anything beyond "goddidit," but require detailed pathways for abiogenesis before the hypothesis can be considered.
We need show no deference to this monstrosity called Christianity. Faith is not a virtue. Nothing fails like prayer. The bible is not wisdom. Jehovah is an immoral, mythological monster. Love does not involve torture. They are all appropriate.

And we all noticed that you didn't address one point he raised; *not a single one.* Instead it's just more blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda, from a mindless christian like you who wouldn't dare violate the unwritten Eleventh Commandment: "Thou Shalt Not Think."

I find that comment offensive, and I think you should ask all people on this site, whoever they may be, separately, to forgive you for saying such an evil thing.

.. whenever someone caused me emotional pain, I usually denied my feelings, labeled the emotions absurd and failed to process them ..
.. my internal dialogue went something like this: "Keep your feelings hidden, HL. Don't rock the boat, don't jeopardize the relationship, practice patience, be strong." ..
.. truth be know, I was terrified of harming the relationship or experiencing the ultimate calamity - rejection. So, I remained silent. What I didn't realize was the person I was hurting most was myself ..
.. the self-imposed parameters triggered resentment with anger nipping at its heels caused by my inability to express painful feelings ..

Excellent post. Thank you. What you say is true- and I have lived it .

Currently- my husband has been diagnosed diabetic- and although I have always done all I can to make his life easier and happier.... I am angry-ish to have extra added because he is very particular and often overly critical and verbal about LOTSA' stuff~ 30 years together with me learning and implementing much of what you posted and he has had a lot of personal growth over these past couple years , which has made my life easier-

I am even more afraid that if he does not take this serious.... I could lose him. The blood glucose has been (UNKNOWN to US) elevated for some time- averaging 260.

I have to initiate some balance where he takes responsibility for improving his health- I can't do it for him.... But I am wifely determined to do what EVER I have to- to help him...with OUT it becomming a way for him to back peddle on progresses he has made.

SOMEHOW- I have a feeling that all of this makes sense to you- even if I feel like I garbled a bit of it.

I got to get to outer london, park my car, get on the train then get on the tube, THEN I'LL BE SCREAMING; I'VE GOTTEN OFF ON THE WRONG STATION, SOMEONE HELP!!!! lol

Why don't u just catch a plane to Birmingham, I can even pick u up in my car, i just hope u not 7ft tall coz it's a small hatchback and it might be uncomfortable for u. Although, it would be funny! u could sit in the boot, hehehehehe!!

Sad about what?
There is no GOD, or the failure of proclaimers of a GOD, inability to exhibit characteristics of a GOD?
I believe that we all need Jesus. And that all who don't believe are missing out on the thing they need most because they don't believe. To me that is sad. And as I pointed out, some of those who don't believe, would be sad that I am wasting my life on something they believe is not real. The views are opposite.

Unless now you're changing your story again and saying that you would vote FOR marriage equality?
GO back and read my posts regarding this subject- or don't- either way- I have not changed what I say. It also has no bearing on your life. You have made your choices based on personal tastes- as have I.

I don't have to vote for marriage equality- It is my personal choice to not promote that union.
