Lawest...I ask...for just a few moments...put aside your own thoughts.
This post is just not addressing gays...but people of all sexual orientations...races...nationa lities...age...faiths.
All...with possibly the exception of a very small percentage...want to find that person that they love...that they can build a life together. I think most of us need that...we need that person in our lives to complete us...to make us be at our best.
Most want to honor that commitment with that little piece of paper...maybe they need it to show the world that they have found that person...some because of their faith...some because that is just what they feel they should. There are others that look at it as just a piece of paper and no more...their commitment is within their heart...and that is all that is needed.
Most people will raise an eyebrow when an older person falls in love with someone much younger. Others frown upon interracial marriages...interfaith marriages and even marriages between different nationalities.
Who are we though to pass judgment upon those relationships? Do we have the right to determine who one can spend their life with...whether they can have that piece of paper if they want one?
I am not sure Lawest of your marital status but I believe I remember that you are single. I hope one day that you find that person that you wish to spend the rest of your life with...that will make your life complete...regardless of who that is.
I know that I have asked you to do a very difficult thing by asking you to put aside your own thoughts. If you can though...try to see it from a different perspective...we all deserve to find that which makes us happy...do any of us have the right to deny that to others?
...and please...to those that are so immature as to throw in animals...children...or any other childish responses...grow up...
Good evening Annie, first off I'd like to say that I do not have to put aside my own thoughts for any length of time to understand anything that you or anyone else for that matter is saying to me, believe me, my mind is not that limited or one tracked. Also to say that your post, while I believe is honest and sincere from your heart, is still without a few considerations here as pertains to Godly matters, I realize that most people feel the need for companionship, there is still a prescribed way that God set that up through his Word, through the institution of marriage and certainly not through same sex unions and again through marriage only and between a man and a woman.

I also realize that this crucial truth means nothing to non-believing people who do not even consider God in the very least, and that is tragic to say the least regardless of what the persons agenda is for their own life heterosexual or homosexual, and while you are making what sounds like a sensible and logical plead on the surface for those who simply want someone in their lives to share all with, we will ALL still be held to God's standards by his Word in the end and for the things that we have done in this life and for those of us who believe, we have to put God first and foremost above everything in our lives including our own fleshly wants and desires, the unsaved will do what they will do regardless and reap the whirlwind for it.

Nothing that you have said in your post is lost on me, but I pray that you have understood my response to you as well.

Ok, if that's 'right' with your speech. I know lands are different. Just never thought of Love connected like that.
You mention slowly re death knocking... do you feel like that with your Honey? When my young husband died without warning... the love we shared was sweeter than venom to carry over into any pain of him going. But Ja... while we are together, always 'just keep returning loyalty, compassion and love all rolled together,' cause when they are gone we can say we did our best through anything. It is possible I know, and can also know 'til death do us part'.
God Bless and LuvU2

I misspoke, I should have said "deny" instead of "take away."
Though how is one any better than the other?
At least at the same time, I proved you a liar (not that that would be hard in the first place).
Because if you cannot understand the spiritual and overall truth of God, perhaps and again MAYBE you can understand that I have the right to vote against anything that my conscience lets me know is counter-productive to God's will and that his Word so thoroughly condemns, I know that I am shooting you something that is so far above your head that is pathetically sad, but to break it down to you like this..........what you call denying on my part, is my constitutional right to vote for or against anything that I believe to be wrong for any reason, and you can never take that from anyone.

You can ramble on ad infinitum, and you can sugar-coat it all you want.

But the bottom line is that you are a bigot, because you would deny equal rights to a portion of the population based on accident of birth.

To hide behind a god's skirt doesn't absolve you. Not only that, but you add insult to injury by droning on about "fleshly wants and desires."

Your "crucial truth" makes for second-class citizens. I find that to be shameful.

<quoted text>you think so eh?
I think the goal of those words is to tell anyone they can't get to YHWH God without going through Jesus Christ.
So if a guy or gal wants to see Jesus as an "Idol" and bypass Him to get to YHWH Almighty, well then that their business. Jesus also say this:
John 10:9
"I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
John 10:1
"Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.
So if people want to think Jesus was literally talking about a door or sheep pen or a gate and think they can get to YHWH Almighty and not go through Jesus Christ, then that them.
The notion that YHWH Almighty would send the only begotten Jesus Christ, to die such a cruel death, when people can go around Jesus to get to YHWH anyways, that I totally reject. If a person can get around Jesus to get to YHWH, then YHWH, would not have sacrificed His only Son.
yes, I do.
Do you believe that just "anyone" gets to pass through that door?
Hardly!
Living the teachings is what makes one "clean in truth" - "just and acceptable." Then fairness is utilized in your admittance and free passage "through" that door.
That is exactly what the verse to the pharisees' is about.
They were being reproved for being "fake" in their outward(public) appearance, while not "living" the teachings, and are being told that they are nothing more than thieves and robbers - and therefore, will not be allowed through the door along with those who did.
Jesus is not a "literal" door-he is a "metaphorical" representation of "living the teachings" he taught. That being the epitome of spiritual and physical love. All the rest of his teachings naturally
fall into place when that is followed.

Buddy you haven't experienced "shame" yet until you stand before the Lord God and his Christ, then you will feel like the biggest fool possible when your eyes then finally come open all too late, I am honest and sincere about everything thing that I have said, and the likes of yourself calling me a bigot and accusing me of hiding behind someone's skirts would be hilarious if it wasn't already pitiful sad and pathetic, there is no such thing as an "accident of birth" in these type of situations, it is a choice made.

I wish those like IANS, Lacez and yourself as well as a few others had the ability to appreciate the magnitude of the pure ignorance and simple mindedness of the commentary that you waste time posting on this thread.

"yes I do" what?
[QUOTE who="Black Thunder 42"]<quoted text>

And no not everyone gets through the door, but those that have a spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ.

As I say before, you don't have to have a spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ to follow His teachings. Many in Hindu Islam Buddhism and other philosophies and religions follow the teachings of Jesus. But don't think they need to pray to or accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior to get to YHWH Almighty.

I think Jesus makes it very clear no one gets to YHWH Almighty without going through Jesus Christ. At least all those that know the Gospel, but choose to reject the Gospel.

He is a literal door. A literal gate. Now you can choose to not believe that. But based on what Jesus says, I choose to believe that. It makes absolutely no sense YHWH would send Jesus Christ His only Begotten Son, if a person can sidestep Jesus to get to YHWH. Then why send Jesus? that no compute.

Faith, for me, is excluded from the equation. It has no probative value.
Evidence is required for me to accept the existence of a god.
And so far, I have seen none.
If you do decide to take something on faith, you have the luxury of picking between any of the numerous religions. Faith works no matter what you have faith in. How convenient is that?

And if you can't find the religion for you, make up your own! Or start with a popular template, and customize, like the Christians do!

"I really like Christianity, but I don't like Hell, although I would like to accuse people of being demon infested. I guess I'm out of luck, right?"

NO!!! That's the beauty of faith! Who's to say that your interpretation of vague and inconsistent scripture isn't "the right one"? Just pull out your trusty faith card, and you're all set!

I admit that I broke a little promise by responding to you again, but that you have taken that point and stretched it to it's extremes merely reveals how desperate you are for talking points in your near mindless attempts to discredit everything Godly while defending something very condemnable.
