"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Timothy 3:1-5
All signs point to the last days being upon us! Come quickly Lord Jesus! Amen!
I'm sure that Jesus will come back at some point. But...you could make an arguement that those things have always been true.
"Only God" knows in our own Hearts if were ready to meet him!! "Judge Not" as he said and wanted his Christian's to follow!! It's easy to preech and hard not to Judge!?
Their both wrong right?!.. In Gods eye's their both sin's as we read in the Bible!
You mean the two random people in my example?
I was asking who has done the greater sin?
The person who A) lies B) cheats on their spouse which is against the ten commandments.
The person who is gay/lesbian but has never physical acted on it.
I say the adulterer. Just putting this all in perspective.
If people wanna make the arguement the world is messed up. Yeah, definitely. If they wanna make the case for Jesus coming back soon because of that...your guess is as good as mine. But if they wanna make the argument that God is coming back to punish the wicked for being gay. I'm gonna need to see real evidence of it. Cause...there have been gays for a LONGGG time. Our first documented cases that I'm aware of go back to ancient Greece and Rome. You know...those empires that our democracy was grandfathered by.
You put a scripture out there for all kinds to read!! Sounds like someone who is one sided to thinking and why because you think, cheating, gay, or purple people are NOT going to make it to heaven says who? Not GOD!! You? There is no right answer and especially favoring to your belief. The only perfection and Right one is GOD!! He will come down open the heavens and one day he will judge you me etc. A scripture doesnt proove a right answer!! Dont forget about the mark of the beast!!!!!!!!!!!! More research for ya
I just thought I'd point out, that those verses from Corinthians do not mean that people who commit those things will not go to heaven period... They certainly will if they are His and repent! The Lord is very merciful. If He was not, then no one would go to heaven for we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God.(Romans 3:23) If we say that we have never sinned, then we make Him a liar and the truth is not in us. (1 John 1:8) Thanks for your consideration. I hope this doesn't offend you, just wanted to defend God's Word, not my own or other's opinions. Lord help us to know and believe the truth!
That's what I have been trying to say that supposedly God is forgiving. I don't know why the majority of the religious community here at Ashworth wants to focus on this one particular "sin." Good post jade91.
I'm all for people discussing their beliefs but I would like to see them make a legal argument against two people getting married. No religious or moral high ground arguements allowed since we have heard all those.
A court just ruled DOMA (defense against marriage act-aka the act that says no gay marriage) UNCONSTITUTIONAL. What does that mean? It means that legally they have no decent arguement to discriminate.
The White House has decided NOT to defend DOMA. So if your one of the people that believes (for religious or whatever reason) that gay people should not get married. You're up the creek without a paddle. The court has also ruled that religious arguements against gay marriage can not be used in this case.
Thank God (pun intended), that there are still Christians out there that see that God isn't just there to decide whether or not people go upstairs. >.> I'm happy to see someone else sees that he is capable of being nice.
No, You didn't offend me at all thank you though.. Im a daughter of a Minister I know a lot about the Bible etc. We can go on for days! No disrespect I'd rather not.
if you died witthout jesus you are going to hell.
Marcturner I think that is more of God/Jesus's decision then yours or mine. They could have been born in a country where Christianity is basically unheard of. Christianity is a few thousand years old. I know that most of humanity was born and died long before Christianity even had a Bible. What about all those people?
How timely of you to allow me a second use of this wonderful quote, as the following is not only my status, but also my standing on religion (and especially this discussion.)....
"Sane and insane could easily switch places...if the insane were to become the majority. You would find yourself locked in a padded cell...wondering what happened to the world."
But, as you stated, I could be wrong. Anything is possible.
