No, God decides what sin is. Like it or not, God has told us what is right and what is wrong. The choice to obey or not is still our decision. However, sin always has consequences and trying to affirm something that’s an abomination cannot and will not make it acceptable to God or right thinking people. Mr. Williams apparently doesn’t understand that being against homosexuality doesn’t mean hating the sinners, it means standing against an act of immortality. Christians who are trying to follow Christ means that we cannot follow both Christ and the world. Just because some politician or comedian or fill in the blank says we should accept it for whatever reason doesn’t mean we follow it. The call of the Good News is that we don’t have to die or be slaves to a sin filled life.

Montel speaks the tenets of liberal gobbledygook. First, Islam kills gays! There is no equivalent in Christianity. Second, if Christians embrace LGBT perversions then why not embrace adultery or rape or pediphilia or murder or theft. Afterall those are sins as well. In fact, why not just embrace sin as a way of life, why even try to live a godly life? If one accepts the Bible as God’s written word then all these sins need to be a part of one’s past not their present or future. God does love sinners but He also calls for repentence and immersion into Christ to begin a new life. That does not include continued sin of the old life. The fact that some Christians have embraced homosexuality as okay are in fact going against God. Bad move…

You really are ignorant of things concerning life! It’s ALL about taking responsibility for my choices as a follower of Christ. In fact, living a responsible life is part of being in Christ! Would you agree that any manmade object just evolved, like say a TV? Perhaps I would take your argument and say I do not blieve a man made the TV since I didn’t see him doing it. I simply believe it just evolved from elements from the earth and a lightning strike. You would then call me crazy since there was obviously a creator, someone thought up the idea, someone worked out the math and logistics of the parts needed, etc. one arguement you might make is that making the TV took intelligence and design. However, I would persist in the face of the evidence that it just randomly happened. That is where you are. A green leaf does something quite amazing everyday, it takes sunlight and produces energy AND turns carbon dioxide into oxygen! How? That’s a good question because the best minds on earth have yet to figure that out! You would argue it just evolved that way magically happening? Of course, that’s insane! The leaf shows signs of design and purpose that are impossible to explain as a random occurrance. The only thing left is that it was designed by Someone who has great intelligence! If it takes intelligence to figure something out, then it was created by intelligence in the first place! What works for a TV also works for a leaf! The evidence is all around for those with eyes to see
That would not be God you’re talking about but people. Free will allows for choice. Sadly, people choose poorly. Like you. Your ignorance of God and who He is, is showing. More than one atheist has turned to God once they did an honest investigation into the Bible and the world around us.

Rob, there are good black people and there are bad black people. There are good white people and there are bad white people. In reality there are only good people and bad people. There are people in Christ and those who are not!
To add to the Republican narrative ;
All white Americans have the God given right to bear as many arms as they can carry...
All other Americans should be stopped and frisked and taken down if they are carrying...
Unfortunately people who believe in god or jesus are not identified with "good". From my experience I would say just the opposite.

It was an excellent prayer that was offered. This should have come from the President but couldn’t because he doesn’t believe in Christ but muhammed. He’s too busy being the Divider-in-Chief!
Does it make any difference ?
Both Yahweh and Allah are not only one and the same, they are also both a work of fiction...
But, why believe someone like me?

No one could have stopped 9-11 with the intelligence available at the time. Of course you could have since you have perfect hindsight. Try opening your eyes!

As a 66 yr old ‘Peter Pan’, I agree. I do refuse to grow up as most adults or what passes for adults but do act and live as a responsible child! Living as a Christian, I do those things that are necessary but retain my joy, sense of humor and wonder about the world I find myself in. Going to a camp for a week or two would be a nice vacation to get recharged for the real world but it cannot be a place to hide and morn the loss of real childhood. These people need to toss their participation trophies and get a life!

Bravely spoken as one who has personal bodyguards! I assume he would also enjoy living under a dictatorship! How typical that he plays a guy who kills ruthlessly and uses guns to stay alive from a government that wants to kill him but would want us all helpless before that same government. So typical of a liberal lefty useful idiot as Lenin called such people. Did some writer write that for him? Usually, actors are incapable of speaking well unless they have a script…

Only a blind individual who does not care to investigate the evidence concerning Jesus, would conclude He didn’t really live. Furthermore, the very fact that there is now nearly 2,000 years of Christian history proves Jesus is who He claimed to be. Why? Simple. If Jesus had not been resurrected, the last 2K years would be completely different. The disciples had no reason for putting their lives on the line as they did if they’re story was false. People will die for a lie they believe to be true (Islam), BUT, nobody dies for a lie they know is a lie! Not one of the Apostles recanted their witness concerning the resurrection of Jesus! Not one! They did not become wealthy as a result of their witness nor did they gain political power as a result. They received death as Jesus had warned them would happen! If Jesus had not been resurrected, they would have simply gone back to their lives as before Jesus’ call and the world would know nothing about Jesus! He would simply have been another nameless Jew crucified by the Romans! No Pentecost, no Paul, no Christians dieing at Nero’s command, no Augustine, no Patrick, no crusades, no Luther, no New Testament, no cathedrals, no Pilgrims, NOTHING of the world as we know it!!!

As one who serves as a volunteer chaplain at a transfer facility, I am concerned that we have several who have indeed turned their lives around but fail to receive parole while many are released who will return to prison for violations or new crimes. It makes no sense to release people who will only return but keep those who have genuinely made the transition.

Wow, good thing she wasn’t around during WW2 or any other conflict! I hope she never needs to call the police but if she does hopefully they will be unarmed. Maybe they’ll be able to talk the criminal to submission…
I'm guessing you meant Mengele?
Why is spelling treated with such disdain

Are you daft? Isn’t it obvious by now that Obama is either stupid or purposefully allowing these incidents to happen. He is extremely pro Muslim! What else should we expect from a man raised in a Muslim country outside the U.S. for all of his early childhood? He didn’t go to Hawaii till he was in high school. He does not like/love America! That much should be obvious by now IF you are paying attention.

Is it asking too much for police to double check or triple check they have the correct address? Not every situation requires a SWAT aproach. It’s also past time for cops all over, in light of current events, to redouble their efforts in making sure they do their jobs correctly. I’m still surprised at the actions of many policemen who over react in situations. As for what happened in San Jose, shame on the PD for following the order to stand down! I’m fortunate to live in a community where the police try to deescalate a situation rather than create one. However, as a citizen I do sometimes wonder if it’s us against the bad guys AND the police…

I’m wondering why a church building is comemorating ANY one but God and His Son, Jesus Christ? Stained glass windows were used to depict Bible stories for those who were illiterate. So why are there scenes depicting Generals from the Civil War? Period! I realize it’s the National Cathedral but it’s still just a giant church building!
 May 21, 2016 at 2:15pm
The Church has only ONE Head, Jesus Christ. Popes and other pretenders need not apply!!!
So Jesus got it wrong when he put Peter in charge?
For sure you are right.

Someone needs to tell him we’re not here to coexist with Islam or any other false religion! Yes, Matt. 28:18-20 is all about conquest as God takes back His world from Satan! We just don’t do it by killing and raping people. We are to preach and persuade people for those who will listen. For those who don’t or won’t, they will give an account to God for refusing His loving grace.
Halo on Matt. 28:18-20 You left out some parts Note:First let's examine Matt. 28:18-20 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."
Now see what happens:
John 20:21 " as the father sends me so as I send you" How did the father send Jesus? With all authority so Jesus sends them with full authority! .
Thus the pope has full authority!
