YOU WROTE<quoted text>great post. Now can you show me the Bible verses that give you the GET OUT OF JAIL FREE card for they way you treat people like me (gays and lesbians) when it comes to Luke 10:25-37 (The parable of the good Samaritan) and Matt. 25-31-46 (The goats and the sheep)?
Folks like you have been thumping Bibles on my head for 50 years. So for spiritual and emotional defense I learned your rules and how to use them with you.
"Going to church doesn't make you any more a christian than going to a garage makes you a car. Your beliefs don't make you a better person, your behavior does.
Your words mean nothing if your actions are the complete opposite. Having true faith in whatever you believe must be shown through actions; belief is only half the battle.
Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words, and your faith stronger than your feelings."

Act 16:25 And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
Act 16:26 And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.
Act 16:27 And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.
Act 16:28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.
Act 16:29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
Act 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Act 16:32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
