.. war? You misunderstood. The battle for equal rights is going quite well without war ..
.. you see, my friend, many of your fellow believers are torch-bearers for gay rights because they know Christianity is losing the younger generation over the gay equal rights issue ..
.. you don't realize Christianity’s very reputation is at stake, that many believers see a right-wing segment trying to change the very thing that Jesus taught. They're reading your insults, judgmentalness, hypocrisy, lewdness and hostility towards gays. The're asking how one sect of Christianity gained so much power but fail to heed Jesus' highest commandment to love thy neighbor ..
.. many Christians have homosexual relatives and friends. They feel that some churches, at a certain level, are complicit in endorsing anti-gay bullying. These people sit on the sidelines, post scripture, try to add a gentle voice on Topix ..
.. truth be known, they're probably somewhat embarrassed to even be associated with your little evangelizing group that demonize homosexuals on Topix. These very Christians need to take a stand not only for equality but for Christianity. They need to realize they're losing the young folk ..
.. isn't it time you thought about washing feet instead of waging war ??..
I'll wash your feet.

Because you make great sammiches.

Exactly, He will not hear anything but his supposed law. Again, you can’t reason with anyone who has no reason. Iran has none. He still doesn’t realize he is not God/ruller. No one has to obey the not all mighty Irans.
Oh and not that I’m insulted or anything but I’m a she.
Oh. So sorry, you're a she.

It's because I know the world war between muslims and christians is inevitable. It's already started.
So Gays having to deal with Muslims is also inevitable. And I think the Gays are going to have a much more difficult time with muslims.
And you're here to help....

I believe we will see more of it too. The end is closer. But that just means that the fight will be over all the sooner. God will win.

Numbers 23:19
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
Adam..........I saw your other post posting a number of scripture where Jesus often spoke of himself and the Father as separate persons, but what you have to understand is that Jesus was in a flesh and blood shell here on earth for 33 and a half years, he often spoke of himself and the Father as being ONE together in the Godhead, there are also a number of scripture where he also eluded that he is that very God as well, I have already posted that he is the Word made flesh and blood and dwelt among us as well as the Word that WAS GOD in the beginning that created everything in the beginning, I could post some scriptures but always remember that the flesh and blood body that he wore for 33 years like you wear your clothing, was the Son while the spirit within animating that body was the Father.

I think that gays being able to marry will likely happen. I am not against Gays. That is most likely because I have met some nice gay people. Some of you make Gay look bad. Although I believe what the Bible says it also talks about other things being bad too. None of us are without sin.

Spanking the kids?

For chrissakes, we're talking about a six-month-old baby!

Just figuring out how to sit up!

And you seek to justify striking her?

Geez, dude.

<quoted text>It's interesting, but not something I overly care about. Those youths have the choice to embrace of reject Christ. They reject, they bear the consequences, not me.
You tell me more youths are are having more out of wedlock babies, then I would certainly care about that because that means more of my tax dollars are going to welfare. That has consequences for me.
They are part of the troubling fact that of the 59,979 live births in Alabama last year, 42 percent were born to unwed mothers. Of those, 12.4 percent were born to women under 19.

History tells us that a difficult future awaits those children.

Were it not bad enough that Alabama ranks so low in many factors that give children a chance — such as health care and education — the fact that those children are starting out in a home without a father spells trouble.

A distinct possibility is that most of these mothers, even the younger ones, might have the ability and the support groups to give their babies the love and care they need. Yet, statistics show that children beginning life in a single-parent home have a strike, sometimes two strikes, against them from the start.

State government can only do so much to prevent births to unmarried mothers. State-sponsored sex-education classes and available birth control have proven effective in other regions, but strong religious opposition to this has kept such programs small in the state.“Abstinence-only” programs have succeeded only on a limited basis.

The message seems ambiguous.
On one hand you say the old law is fulfilled (ended) and on the other you say that the old law still applies.
Yet there appears to be no end of believers who continue quoting from the OT as if its laws do apply.
What Christians need to do is to first reach a common consensus among themselves. However, I see little chance of that happening.
Hi Khatru,
I am going to try to explain the differences in the 2 covenants in layman terms. First we will call the covenants a " contract" because that is what a covenant is.
Now, Lets say that you and I had a "contract" with the bank. We owed a huge debt and someone decided to come along and Pay that debt for us. You accepted his offer, however, I didn't trust him and refused to accept his offer. The " contract" is still in effect for me, ONLY because I didn't accept his offer to pay my debt for me. The bank still holds me reliable to repay my debt and the law still holds for me but it is void for you. Your was Pardoned and Paid in full. You were set free from the debt you owed.

The Old Covenant or contract was between Man and God..God laid down the Law to show people that they could NOT hold up to their end of the bargain....and of course they did not. The only one that could VOID the contract was the ONE who made the contract..God.. And He did when He came up with a New contract with Jesus..Jesus was too pay the debt by " Fulfilling" the requirements of the Law that Man couldn't do HOWEVER, If someone doesn't accept His offer, The Law is still in effect for THEM. This also includes believers who still continue to Stay under the Old Covenant OF Law.

The bible tells us to Mature in Christ. Consider an adult who goes back to his parents house. The rules you had as a child no longer pertains to you as an adult child However, As an adult, You STILL honor your parents rules and do as they say. You don't break all the rules just because it doesn't pertain to you anymore. You obey your parents out of Love and respect...Same way we do when we understand the difference between the covenants and understand that we are not Judged under the Old Covenant Laws even if they are still in effect for those who refused to accept the free gift that was paid on our behalf. It would be a slap in the face for the One who paid the debt and people reject the offer but it happens.....

No sane biblical scholar on the planet believes that anything in the Bible (except a few of Paul's letters) are anything but anonymous texts.

Then how you could say we are the same I don’t know. But what ever.

Yes there is, but I don’t think you really wanted to know.
