    I was reading an article about the National Day of Prayer. Part of the article read:


    I just want to scratch my sack and ask 'What the FUCK?, over.'

    I just don't get it. These people make a mockery of God yet claim to be doing 'His work'. They are no less misguided than Islamic Terrorists. Sin is Sin. Sanctioning sin is worse than sin, imo.

    Look - I covet from time to time. That is sin. Pure and simple. However, I do NOT lobby for Coveting to be 'accepted' and 'tolerated' because I have the God-Given common sense to realize we are to REPENT of our sin - NOT fucking change the rules because we can't seem to get OVER sinning.

    I grow nausiated at people linking "Jesus" with "Tolerance." Jesus befriended sinners - people like you and me - He ALSO held them accountable to CHANGE their behaviour...to change their hearts and desire for things of a sinful nature.

    And these 'pastors and priests' March and protest to get the sins of their congregation sanctioned?

    There has to be a special place in hell for people teaching Others - in the name of Christ - to revel in their sin.

    :(

    Horrible. Absolutely.

    Isn't that directly contradictory to the Bible? I seem to recall some Messiah somewhere in that book saying "There is no way to the father but through me." Am I missing something?

    John 14:6

    And this one, Matt 7:14-15 (not the one I really wanted) ....narrow is the way....Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    Maybe there is:

    Matthew 18:6,7
    6But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

    7"Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!

    OK....so what's so bad about these people saying that gays are humans and you shouldn't be intolerant towards them?

    Last time I had a discussion about gays on this forum I was informed that gay sex acts are considered sins but are of no greater relevance than other sins. And since all of you sin what makes you one ounce better than any gay person?

    I'll spell it out for you. You're hypocrites.

    Flame on
