  1. I've been to a lot of churches in my lifetime and I've yet to see one that WASN'T "Bible believing". What does this phrase mean?

  2. That's an interesting question. I think it could be defined as those who are indeed believers but maybe don't fully believe in the completeness of God's Word and those that do believe it's fully God. I would say it depends on personal or church revelation...
  3. There are some churches and "believers" who gloss over parts of the Bible so as to keep their own beliefs which fit in their preconceived world view. Among them would be those who approve and promote gay marriage, abortion, and other unbiblical views.
  4. Respectfully - if you approve of gay marriage (and I am neutral on the issue) - how does it make you any less of a Christian? I don't see how a person's opinion on that subject can affect the degree to which they are a Christian.
  5. My guess is approving any sin would make one less of a Christian. Yes we all struggle with sin, but I think there is a difference when one approves it.
  6. Do you remember when God spoke to Abraham concerning Sodom, and Gomorrah? God was getting ready to completely destroy this city because of their wickedness. Men having sex with other men, and Women with women. This was only a city in which God was not going to wait until judgement day to judge them because their sins before him was so grievous. Now we have an entire nation going after the same sins as they did. What do you think God's anger level is at today? How can any Christian who has the same nature of God living inside them stand "neutral" on gay marriage? That is impossible, as we have the same nature, and mind set as God.

    Gen 18:17 And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;

    Gen 18:20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and
    Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

    Gen 19:13 For we are about to destroy this place, because the outcry against its people has become great before the LORD, and the LORD has sent us to destroy it."

    Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
  7. No, in fact, I think you'll find the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was inhospitality.

  8. No it wasn't.
  9. Well, you're wrong. Throw away the Jack Chick tracts, they're doing you no favors.
  10. Yes, an agenda of being fair and balanced and not giving in to hate speech. No wonder you don't like it.

    Let's clear this up now. A Christian is someone who follows Christ, and because Christ did the will of God the father, to disagree on homosexuality being a sin is in fact disagreeing with Christianity. A Christian wouldn't disagree with this because they want to follow the will of God. Homosexuality is made very clear in the Bible as sinful and against the will of God, so your viewpoint is in direct contrast to what a Christian would believe.
  12. 2Pe_2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
    Jud_1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

    Gen 13:13 Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.

    Where do you think we get the name "Sodomy" from?

  13. Not really.
  14. To me it means they believe every thing in the bible, and doesn't cherry pick what fits their agenda. I like the way Francis Chan preaches, because he said it's important to read the word of God, and not just listen to what the pastor says, we have to know the truth for ourselves.
  15. Do you seriously believe only homosexuals engage in sodomy?
    Let's start with lesbians, one half of the gay population. Do THEY engage in it? I'm guessing not....that would be kind of difficult.
    Let's move on to gay men. Not all gay men engage in it, not by a long shot.
    And finally, straight couples. Do you think that no straight couples engage in it?

    Once you process all this information, come back and tell me why you equate sodomy with homosexuality.

  16. Exactly! God's word is CLEAR.
  17. Well, I disagree with you. First of all it's far from clear that that's what the Bible says, there is a very good possibility the verses dealing with homosexuality (which wasn't even a WORD until sometime in the 1800s) were actually about male prostitution. Finally, I think we know a lot more about homosexuality now than we did when the Bible was written. The Bible is a lot of things but it's not impervious to modern science, mental health discoveries, and plain old common sense.

  18. I see you disliked my post. Is this a grudge you're holding? Why are you on this site when you are just arguing against Christian beliefs? Yes I am referring to your other thread also. You have done nothing but argue and be hateful and immature the entire time I've seen you on this site.
