Christians performed gay marriages back then?
Why did that change then?
zappa, I'm surprised you didn't know about that!
It's really nice when people like zappa come along and prove that every single stereotype I have about people is 100% correct.

Liberal theologians and skeptics have to keep eating their words. Liberals like to say there’s no evidence of any inhabitants in Nazareth at the time of Christ. No matter what this discovery is, it does show habitation and structures close to the time of Christ. Obviously, the crosses point to Christ.
I’m a Christian who believes God is sovereign and in control. We may be getting close to the end but nobody knows only God. The people that would put such notes out are fearful and not trusting God, because it serves no purpose. Wake up Christians and live your lives for Christ instead of writing anonymous notes that do nothing but spread fear instead of the gospel.
As Christians we're instructed to know the signs of the times, which is the exact reason Jesus laid out for us what those signs will look like in the Olivet Discourse, as well as other areas of the Bible. He scolded that generation for being able to tell the weather, but be unaware of the signs leading up to their visitation.
In other words, I don't agree with you. Spreading word that the end is near isn't about fear, it's about doing exactly what you're supposed to do as a Christian. Now I don't know if this person was sincere, or what the rest of the note stated, but concerning the argument about the end times and whether or not it should be talked about, you're wrong.
Saying that relaying this info "serves no purpose" is honestly a bit disturbing. The purpose it serves is to wake people up, to educate people about the events going on around the world today and how they fit in with end time prophecies from the Bible. If that note causes someone to become interested in this matter, that's not a bad thing, it's a great thing. So many people in this country walk around on a daily basis being completely blind to what's going on in the rest of the world, and how it relates to the coming one world government the Bible warns us about.
Christianity is about the truth, if the truth scares someone then they probably aren't living the way they should be. Holding back the truth is something guys like Joel Osteen do because they'd rather not offend someone. New age nonsense.
The world is 3 Billion years old and humans have only been here for a cup of coffee...does it make any sense that the world is coming to an end now? We're still trying to figure out how to get along with each other; surely, we need a lot more time to do this.

Sad when a Catholic Priest has to come to this conclusion through observation instead of from the true authority of the Word of God (The Bible). But such is the beliefs of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church’s authority is based on men, via the Pope etc…but the true believers in Jesus Christ base their beliefs and spiritual life on the commands of the Scriptures alone. Not on tradition. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by Satan, what did Jesus say? Man does not live by bread alone but by every tradition that will proceed from the Catholic Church?? No! But by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God…found in the Scriptures. Jesus quoted the Scriptures every time He was tempted! While I agree with some of the points of this priest, I don’t like how he arrived at his conclusions because it’s apart from the Bible. Once the Bible is not your authority, truth is relative.
Perhaps the greatest trick religions play is to tell people that if they do not believe in that particular religion's truth, then all truth is relative...
Where did the Bible come from? Your post leads me to believe that God handed it to Martin Luther on a silver platter or golden tablets depending on your flavor of heresy. (I know that's a pejorative term but if the shoe fits)

Why would anyone want to hurt an Islamic woman? Gee, maybe it’s because civil people have been patient long enough with those who espouse terrorism. She needs to be protected but shouldn’t be surprised because Islam is threatening the UK. People are frustrated.
Protected you say? The best protection for her (and us) is deportation.

“Caitlyn knows who Jesus is, and Jesus knows her by name. …… I know firsthand that Caitlyn has heard the good news,”..“And, Caitlyn has taught me more about Jesus. Caitlyn taught me to be bold. That’s why I’m posting this. I’ll gladly take the heat if it means standing for what is right.”
Jesus knows Bruce by name. Jesus knows who He created. What kind of “Pastor” would endorse this? Answer, not a biblical pastor that follows the Bible. What did Jesus tell the Adulterous woman? That she was fine? No, go and sin no more. According to the Bible Bruce Jenner needs to know Christ and repent of his sin, just like anyone else. This is not repentance but rebellion and shaking a fist in God’s face, no matter how nicely you try to decorate or smooth it over. Sodom & Gomorrah they were just living to satisfy their own needs. God didn’t see it that way.
Matt is right on. It’s an obvious fact. Sometimes mankind likes to pretend things aren’t really the way they are. The reason? Men love their sin because their deeds are evil and therefore he will do anything to hold onto his sin. Sin is rebellion against your Creator!

What part is wrong and why is he wrong?

Thank you Tim Keller! Well thought through and biblical. Which for the Christian the bible is the authority and not current trends or fads.
A "feel good" society rejects anything that spurs against conscience or brings forth conviction.
Big, check out Keller's book, "JESUS THE KING" it's a good read!

Just use the Bible because you know Christians won’t respond with violence. Oh yeah you are already doing this to Christians that’s right. Honestly, as a Christian I could care less if someone makes fun of me or my faith because I’m secure in what I believe. Those who practice the mockery of Christ are only doing so at their own peril. Man is a rebel to his core nature.

This is obviously a racially motivated arrest. Set the man free. Just bring in Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Never mind if the man actually committed the crime, but because of his race we must set him free.

It’s called “Yes” men and intimidation. It reeks big time but no investigations because I’m sure people are being blackmailed. We will find out after Obama is out of office. There will be plenty of revelations as long as a conservative wins in 2016.
One problem with that when it comes to Scriptures. You have to translate what it actually says…not what you want it to say. This shows you the difference between true Christianity that sticks to the Bible versus religion that changes with the times.

Exactly, they still bring in their biased presuppositions to date the sandstone layer.
Biased presuppositions based on the fact that radioactive decay occurs at a constant rate and decays to known byproducts.

This is nothing new for young earth creationists. I agree with the 6,000 year model. These types of fossils point to a global flood that quickly buried all types of creatures quickly. Are there fossils like this being created today? Just because someone says that layer is 60 million years old doesn’t make it so.
Someone doesn't just say its 60 million years old.
The bible saying there was a global flood doesn't make it so either. Since there's no credible evidence for your global flood idea and there is credible evidence that the rock is 60 million years old your statement can be dismissed out of hand.
Don't get me wrong, I don't care if you believe in your flood story and teach it to your children. That's your prerogative. Of course, if your children fail biology, geology, astronomy, etc that is your problem. You don't get to cheat by inserting your unsupported beliefs into the tests.

Honesty is a good thing. Honesty about admitting a sin is a good thing. But approving of a sin and not repenting (admitting it’s wrong and turning from sin) is a sin and is evidence of a non-Christian.

Obviously, for a Pastor to say he’s going to hell because he is gay, misses the whole point of the gospel. You don’t go to hell for specific acts, but for lack of repentance of sin and rejection of Jesus. There is no sin too big for God to forgive. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, not according to works it is the gift of God.” Eph. 2:8-9 Yes, he has disqualified himself for ministry, but not eternal life if he really is a true Christian he will repent of his sin.
Exactly, brother. You dont go to Hell for sinning, you go to Hell for not accepting Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour. This doesn't not disqualify this homosexual from getting into the ministry, though. With Jesus's blood, all our sines are washed away. In other words, they arent there anymore. In the section where it gives qualifications for a bishop (known as a pastor today) the first thing it says is that they must be faultless. Nobody is faultless. The Old Testament shows nobody can follow the whole Law. The point is that you must not be living in sin. If the homosexual kids seeks forgiveness and repents, he can minister.
