Well, number one is straight people produce us, so I guess you have to get rid of that first...second, we have always been here, just worried of getting the hell beat out of us if the public knew...finally we have realized we are not second God loves all his children, not just a select few...
the only way to get to heaven is to be "straight"? so osama bin laden and hitler will be there waiting on me? i hope for your sake spelling and common sense are not required to get beyond the pearly gates
Your right god does love everybody but he does not love sin.He hate sin, so if you are commited to that sin you are living a sinfull life.If you don"t believe in God, you don"t have nothing to worry about.A lot of people want to sugar coat the truith,but I don"t God destroy a whole city read the bible you will see the truith stop listening to people you can"t have its both ways.
If God doesn't love sinners, then Heaven is a pretty empty place. He is forgiving, and more forgiving than most of us on this Earth.
Who cares what way a person swings in the bedroom. If they make positive contributions to society by helping their fellow neighbor, that is all that matters. There are numerous of gay people that give their time, money, and efforts to charity and their local community. I dare say, they are more giving than some straight people.
Let's focus on the bright side of humanity instead of trying to bring a certain group of people down. We have enough bad times to go around to everyone hundreds of times over.
We are made in God's image and some of his greatness is in us all. Let's focus on the positive energy and we will defeat the negatives.
Walkie, signing out!
Your wrong Heaven is not a empty place.And he is forgiving for those who ask for forgiveness,that why their salvation he or she must have a new birth.They must turn away from their sin so they can enter the Kindom of God.
God will either forgive you or he won't. All we can do is ask, but that doesn't mean he will forgive us.
I'm sure he has admitted many people who have never asked for forgiveness. That's the beauty of it all.
Sometimes asking for forgiveness can be considered a bribe against God, or a weak attempt to manipulate the situation.
One question St. Peter will ask each one of us how we, as individuals, made positive contributions to society? Let's try to make the list so long, that he forgets to ask us about our transgressions.
Doesn't mean he will forgive us,you are so wrong God forgive everybody.you will not enter the kindom of God by doing good deeds.You must be Born again.
I've come to find that watching folks 'debate' over their individual interpretations of the SAME religion can be even more entertaining that debates between those of different religions....or those who believe in a god and those who don't.
Pass the popcorn. :>)
Any Taoists want to chime in?
Nah, I'm Buddhist. Don't want to aggravate anyone, I'm hoping to be reborn as a cow in New Delhi.
Seriously, Eddie50's comments are so lowbrow and ludicrous as to no longer merit a response.
Really ludicrous you telling everbody you wanted come back as a cow you lost your way.I hope one day you open your eyes because if you don't.You know what america would say to you beef its what for dinner.
But eddie50, Bryant would be an Indian cow, and they don't eat those.
Seriously, there are a lot of things I do not support about the gay lifestyle, but I will not bring religion into it. I am not God and neither are you. I refuse to speak in His place (it is not my place) and I STRONGLY urge you to refrain from doing so as well.
God might hate sin, but I think He really despises people who think they can do a better job than He can.
You are dead wrong no I'm not god and I'm not bring religion into it.I'm bring the word and word is God and word will stand.Who are you tell me to strongly refrain,I'm going speak my mind and if you don't like it you don't have to listen to it. That what I believe and that what I believe to the day i die.You can't change word that what bible said and that it and that all.
Thanks cameo people like us are christian, we speak about the bible because we are witness of christ.
We are told in the bible to go out into the world and spread the word.You (charles) refuse to speak in his place. You are so wrong I hope your eyes open up soon before the end of days.
Two peas in a pod - eddie50 and cameo.
What exactly is the "Word of God" that the Bible says? What about all the scriptures that were set aside by the Council of Nicaea? Are those not God's words? And who chose the books that are included in the Bible? Which Bible, Jewish, Catholic, Protestant? Also, how many translations/versions of the Bible are there now? So I guess you can choose/change the Word, if you want to.
What I should have said was that I STRONGLY urge you not to "judge" in the place of God. It is not our place to judge others by God's law, since our understanding of His law is imperfect. I will judge them by man's law all day long, but I will not judge another by God's law. I am not God.
Lastly, I try to base my practice of Christianity on the methods of Christ Himself. I do not threaten or berate others about religion or with religion. I berate others about politics and law, but NEVER religion. I have the example of my life (sins and all) and the quiet witness of my experience with the Lord Jesus Christ. They can accept or not, I will not judge them or their sins.
Always amusing (and disheartening) to see "Christians (or Jews or Muslims)" cherry pick their respective religious tomes for those passages which support their views, while ignoring others.
And you are quite correct about the numerous editions, revisions, and versions of the Bible. Man decided the current version and what was included. And a lot of those decisions were politically and geographically motivated.
Where ARE they all coming from? I'm not trying to be offensive, but there are a lot of bigots in Statesboro, and most of them come at you with something akin to "I'm not a bigot, but.." as preface to whatever nincompoop thing flows out of their pie hole after the introductory clause. Call me old fashioned, but not making public statements on the Intertoob Machine that cast me as socially backward and rhetorically prehistoric is the way to go. God don't like ugly, and taking that to heart might help get you into heaven. That's what I believe and have always believed.
Hear you go again twisting thing,I"m not judgeing i made a statement and they are a lot of gays hear.And being straght is the way to go and that what god said in his good book and that how God wants you to be.
you made several statements.
on Friday, Aug 31, 2012 at 09:09 AM = "Your wrong Heaven is not a empty place" Been there, have you? If so, why are back?
on Friday, Aug 31, 2012 at 09:47 AM - "Doesn't mean he will forgive us,you are so wrong God forgive everybody" Is walkie wrong? If God forgives everybody, then everybody gets in, right?
on Friday, Aug 31, 2012 at 14:13 PM - "you lost your way" Who are you to say Bryant lost his way? If Bryant claims to be a Buddhist, can he be rightly subject to Judeo-Christian rules? Maybe he has his own heaven (a cow in New Delhi) and maybe the Creator is OK with that. Caught you playing God again....
on Saturday, Sep 01, 2012 at 09:46 AM - "You are dead wrong (your God complex again) no I'm not god and I'm not bring religion into it." Your original post said, "...but being straight is the way to go, its the only way your going to get to heaven," Sounds like religion to me.
on Saturday, Sep 01, 2012 at 10:53 AM - "You (charles) refuse to speak in his place. You are so wrong" Do you know me? Do you know to whom and about what I speak?
I count at least 4 times you told someone they were wrong about God/religion and once were you told another person they had lost their way.
If you did any more judging you'd have your own midday TV show - "Religious Court" in between Judge Judy and Divorce Court.
You're not a lot fun when you're sloppy. Done here, I think.
well, what do yall expect me to comment on this subject????? the closest one will win the prize. use your imagination folks.....
You Charles showing me right now that you are about deciet and twisting things i said to suit you.You have lost this debate,you have been beaten by the word and Word is God.Why don't you throw in the towel,everything i said was the truith and the truith will set you free.
Charlie, Bryant here. Seems like Eddie keeps score on a different scale since you " have been beaten by the Word". I wasn't aware that it was God you were debating.
Done here as well.
Maybe I should change my name to Israel.... On the other hand, I am not limping, so maybe not.
No limp.... must not have been God.
You again now its both, batman (charlie)& robin (bryant) its all started when I slap robin with the truith and here come batman (charlie)you guys need to quick.
(whispers menacingly) I'm Batman!
And eddie50 must be...(wait for it)...
either the Joker or TwoFace.
Any popcorn left? I could use a refill...and a keg of that sugar loaded soda too.
I wonder if Eddie50 has a closet gay friend or acquaintance? How would the friend or acquaintance feel after seeing Eddie's comments? If I were that person - and I'm not - I would distance myself from Eddie50.
Regardless, Eddie50, would have a dilemma he/she did not expect and that's a shame.
That's why it is best to leave such comments alone - and offline.
To gawalkman never happen, I will be straight to the day i die.And because i'm a real man and that the way God wants us to be.And as for you (charles) i'm the (Joker)
I didn't say anything about you and it wasn't directed at you either. However, I mentioned you might have a friend or acquaintance who might be gay - and you might not know they are gay.
If you find yourself in that situation, you will hit a crossroad in your beliefs - which I respect by the way. When you do, I hope the two of you can reconcile your differences.
I don't have a freind and your trying to be decietful.You are trying to twist thing deceive people that are reading these blogs.I will always believe you should be straight because that what the word saids.I will not compromise the word of God till the day i die i would believe that.
You wrote "I will not compromise the word of God till the day i die i would believe that," (on Friday, Sept. 7 at 7:28 a.m.).
Having said that...
Do you ever cut your hair or shave? If so, you've compromised the word of God. (Lev. 19:27)
Do you ever wear clothes made of more than one type of fabric? If so, you've compromised the word of God. (Lev. 19:19)
Do you believe a virgin woman who is raped should be required to marry her rapist? If not, you're compromising the word of God. (Duet. 22:28-29)
Eddie, on September 7, you wrote, "I don't have a freind (sic)..." and I find that easy to believe.
Frank, thanks for the Old Testamemt cites. I was going to look some up but lost interest.
I'm pretty sure I figured out where the gay factory is, eddie. If you go down 80 past the hate factory and make a left just over the hill, go down a ways across the creek past the forget-all-the-red-letters-in-the-bible church, take another right at the love-thy-neighbor incineration plant, then the gay factory is a the end of the road there.
It's really small though...more like a methlab than an actual factory, so it's easy to miss aside from the slightly over stylized sign. I would suggest google mapping it if you are seriously planning a crusade.
That was great your more fun than batman(charles).A jvestal make more popcorn,this going to be fun don't you just love america
OK...Going back to your original post, eddie50...There is only ONE way to get to heaven...only one thing will get you there!....That is being saved! Being saved does not mean you will never sin again, because we all sin and fall short,,,But you are right (assuming this was one of your points),,We are, as Christians, to turn away from our habitual sin. But isn't it wonderful to know that we no longer live under the laws of the land...that Jesus Christ died so that we wouldn't have to. Now we live under the precious blood of our savior
