I have noticed what might be an interesting correlation. The climate change deniers who post in this forum also tend to be pro-military aggression in the Middle East; pro-Israel; and, fundamentalists. Could it be that they are more interested in facilitating Armaggedon than caring for creation because they don't care what happens to this planet after the rapture?
RIP Robin Williams. A fitting tribute to your genius would be for our nation to finally recognize mental illness for the disease that it is and give those who suffer from it the same care, concern and attention to medical research that we do without thinking for those who suffer with cancer, heart disease etc.
It is heartwarming to hear all of the love for Muslims that is consistently posted by "Christians" on this board.
And, I often wonder about all of the love for Jews expressed by "Christians" in this country. Is it really love for Jews or love for the State of Israel for the purpose of achieving the destruction of the Al Aqsa mosque, the facilitation of the coming of Armaggedon and the ultimate destruction of all Jews who fail to convert.
If humans really do have the capacity to facilitate Armaggedon, we are doing a good job of it. However, I suspect that many who expect to be gone when it comes will discover that they have been left behind.

The CDC report that you referenced says nothing about HIV transmission via female-female intimacy. Yes, 84% of new HIV infections among women are the consequence of heterosexual activity. That, however, does not imply that 16% of new HIV infections are the consequence of lesbian sex.
If you are going to preach Christ crucified, please preach Christ crucified. A measure of the Gospel would be very helpful because the Gospel is the power of salvation for all who believe and not just for those who quit sinning and not just for heterosexuals. ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God - that would include you and Conservative, not just homosexuals and those who think that homosexuals deserve partner benefits. There is no one who is righteous - NO ONE includes you. But, thanks be to God for Christ crucified because God's righteousness is revealed for all who believe. Also, please note that you have no excuse. Whenever you judge others, you judge yourself.
conservative said...We gentiles are not bound by the Law, and to seek to be bound by the Law invites the judgment of the Law, something we are repeatedly warned by Paul not to do for that judgment will be severe and painful.
Well, then, that would mean that all gentile homosexuals are not bound by the Law that you keep citing, either.
conservative said...Perhaps you don't know that there were not any "conservative Republicans" around that time or in the Bible either.
Of course I know that. But, perhaps you are oblivious to the reality that there were plenty of folks around that time who were more than willing to use their positions of wealth and power to take advantage of the less fortunate - not unlike behavior practiced by some of the conservative Republicans. And, apparently, you also are unaware that the prophets, including Exekiel,had plenty to say in condemning that kind of behavior. But, if you spend all of your time with what little Scripture actually has to say about homosexuality, I can understand why you might have missed all of that.
conservative said...Do you know the origin of the word SODOMY and the behavior of those who practice it?
This was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. (Ezekiel 16:49)
So, when you use the term, "sodomite", are you also including the sins of conservative Republicans?
Maximus said...And remember, Christ died to save the world from sin bringing in a New Covenant with the New Testament. As Christians, we love and forgive all of their sins no matter how great. The door to a relationship with Jesus and everlasting life is always open. Faith not works will provide redemption.
But, as the rest of your post demonstrates, you make exceptions to your understanding of God's grace, in Christ, for all for the President. And, you apparently do that while refusing to accept his public statements of belief in Christ.
conservative said...You judgmental brazen hypocrite!
Are you talking to your mirror, again, Conservative?
conservative said...And I justify what sin Mt John?
The failure to love your neighbor as yourself.
