i'm sorry, i responded to what i thought you said. i'm not trying to be your enemy, i'm just confused sometimes why it seems that you side with my enemies against me. i may not be the kindest & most articulate christian, but i am definitely NOT a satanic blasphemer.
do you care to ask me again in an abbreviated version? i blow in & out of this thread quickly and try to keep things brief:)
I guess it never occurred to you that:
1. It's not her job to agree with you.
2. She is agreeing with Jesus' teachings instead of you.
3. She is more moral and ethical than you.
4. You are quite the satanic blasphemer.
5. Your ego is all that you represent. Since she is trying to honestly represent the teachings of Jesus in her actions and words, she owes no allegiance to those who don't do the same. Calling yourself a Christian doesn't make you a person who actually acts like one.

maybe we can cut the chase:
where do you stand regarding ordaining professing homosexuals (activists) into leadership positions within the Body of Christ?
this isn't an exact scenario like condoning nazism circa 40's, but it's an attack on our society & the church from the same spirit of antichrist, IMO.
Are you worried about your ordination being recalled or something? Or are you just looking for something else for which you can condemn NS?

He likes to attack me because I reject his historicized jesus, while I accept the historical Socrates and Plato. He commands be to believe what he tells me to believe, and I refuse. In that way, he is no different from the christians he claims to oppose.
He likes to attack me because I stated that I'm ninth-generation Strega, and that my tradition is based on ancient Etruscan beliefs. Now, why he hates *that* so much, I have no idea; but he obviously feels threatened enough by it to make him spew his hatred toward not only myself, but he's even attacked, derided, impugned and ridiculed my family.
I'd like to know why.

Kaitlin...each time that you let someone get to you in a sense you are opening the door for them to continue. When you allow yourself to become angry you have given them what they want.
No matter what anyone says to you they can not take away your beliefs and what those beliefs stand for. Nor should anyone's opinion here matter to you. They don't pay your bills...hold your hand when you are sick...nor will they grow old with you.
I have to admit...SOME of you posts are a bit much for me but when you leave of the vile and nasty language
I kinda get the language from my dad and his buddies.... Marines, ya know.... My sister takes more after my mom, while I'm more like dad. I suppose I oughtta watch that...

I think some people come after you Kaitlin because they like to see you upset...they like for you to be angry. They take joy in being the one that causes it.
I know...it isn't any of my business.
Interesting; something definitely worth thinking about. Maybe I've been here too long...

That insignificant little sh*t stain "G_O_D" isn't getting to me, I'm just curious. However, it is obvious that somehow my existence here really gets to *him."

My list went the way of the dinosaurs when my computer just up and died one day without notice. I really should have printed them out and taped them on the wall next to the computer. But alas, they are lost to me forever unless someone else has a copy.
I'll see what I can do from my end.
You have to back it up to get it back...

(Yeah that is from an ad.)

3copies, on 2 different media, with 1 of them off site. I've never managed to actually do that, but that is what the professionals keep saying.

So, you are saying that King David should not have been the source of the bloodline that will eventually culminate in the coming of the Messiah? After all, David married Johnathan in 1 Samuel...

i never insinuated that one sin is greater than another in the Word, but at least we agree that homosexuality is a sin.
so, would you also not have a problem with ordaining a professing/unrepentant adulterer, pedophile...etc???
i suspect that a homosexual pastor would not teach what the Bible does about homosexuality.
What did Jesus say about homosexuality? Please be specific.

i always know that i'm on the right coarse when it's opposite you, wn, thank you!;)
The right course for what? Making a fool of yourself and your religion? Letting everyone know what a hate-filled fool you are? Which course in specific is the right course? IT is certainly not following the teachings of the one you claim is God. It is certainly not a course of humility taught by that same teacher. It is certainly not being prepared to answer as you are told to do. So I'm really curious as to which course you think is the right one, considering you don't seem to think the course that Jesus plotted for you is the correct one.

This is not cutting to the chase, this is a complex issue within the Church that you are trying to make simple…it's not.
The Bible is clear in saying that it is a sin.
You show ignorance by grouping homosexuals with pedophile’s. How do you personally know who is truly repentant and who is not? I am not willing to judge another’s character, based on my opinion.
I don’t agree.
The Bible never says that homosexuality is a sin. Well, not in the proper Hebrew anyway. Erroneous English translations may, but that is irrelevant to any serious discussion on a discussion about what is or is not a sin.

<quoted text>I disagree wholeheartedly with Calvin.
The Bible says God knows your needs so prayer in itself is a sign of lack of belief. A person who truly believed would never ask for anything, but tell God 'thank you' for the answer/blessing that you have bestowed on me and that is on it's way. Begging time after time for the same thing shows that one really doesn't think God is going to give it to them. It's like the child begging his parents for a BB gun for Christmas. He'll give all sorts of reasons why he should have it, and beg repeatedly until he wakes on Christmas morning to find no BB gun. Even the letter to Santa, which laid out carefully all the reasons he was responsible enough to own a BB gun did no good.
I truly think that you have to know you will receive that which you need. I think being optimistic and expecting it is a great deal better than begging and not thinking you are worthy of it. But worthlessness is an ingrained theory of theists. It has to be.
I think I have more assurance in what I need being given by the method I have outlined than many Christians who only beg. They also do not stop to ask themselves if it is something they can do for themselves before asking God for it. Or, ask themselves if it is truly something they need. My needs are always met. My fantasies, not so much. But I am wealthy beyond imagining. I have the love and respect of friends and family. To me, that's a lot better than begging for a new bike. But, that's just my vision of abundance.
BB gun?!? You'll shoot your eye out with that thing!

Nasty, perverted little creep. Do you imagine that homosexuality and pedophilia are the same because you are both? One has to ask because of all the remarks you make about both.

Pedophiles don't just abuse children of their own sex, you ignorant bigot. The two are not related. Well, maybe for people like you, but you aren't the ordinary homosexual. Most of them only want people old enough to make a decision and don't rape little children. Your preacher is more likely to rape a child than nearly all the homosexuals are. You're a preacher, aren't you?

God did not put it in the ten commandments. Jesus never said one word about it. Even John of Patmos, who thought everyone on earth but him was probably bound for hell never mentioned in when he wrote of all those who would go to hell. It seems that it is a fear of many Christian men that they will become a homosexual if by chance they see a same-sex couple holding hands and don't run screaming in denial and condemnation. That tells me only one thing, they have desire for a same-sex relationship. There is nothing else that would account for such obsession with the subject.

Maybe that ain't in the new revised "popup" version.
