    @Grover You say that if we don’t overlook certain Biblical truths, people will not choose Christianity. The problem is that the entire point of Christianity is our own hopeless, fallen, sinful state and the saving blood of Christ. Telling people that they aren’t sinners, when the Bible teaches that they are, doesn’t point them to Christ. It points them to a morally neutral god of man’s own making. When we adapt our faith to fit with the current trends of man, we are worshiping man. Not God. Leading people to the humanist version of Christianity is like patting them on the backs while they walk into Hell. It is to the detriment of both the unregenerate sinner and the faithful to incorporate unGodly principles into the Church. Those who are not saved falsely believe that they are. Those who are saved are robbed of spiritual and theological growth because they are ignoring portions of God’s word.

    I just want to point a common mistake, that is NOT what Presbyterians believe. That is what the PCUSA believes. They are one, very liberal and not theologically sound branch of Presbyterians. The PCA, the OP, and the Reformed Presbyterians all believe that only ceremonial laws (food, washings, etc) went away after Christ’s resurrection. We would hold that homosexuality is absolutely a sin. I attend a PCA church. We would allow anyone to visit the church, but you cannot be a communicant member if you are unrepentantly engaged in any continuous sin. Like you said, if you are cheating on a spouse, a criminal, living with a boyfriend/girlfriend you would not be allowed to join until the sin is addressed and if you are a member, the elders &pastor would council you to turn from your sin. If all prayer &counseling failed, you would be excommunicated with a hope that you would one day repent and rejoin. Homosexuality is treated the same way. While we all strive for righteousness and fail, practicing homosexuals are engaged in an ongoing sinful lifestyle. It is not that they can never be saved or never join the church, but those who have truly been born-again show the fruits of the Spirit by turning from their sinful lifestyles. We are warned that we bring judgement upon ourselves when we take part in activities like the Lord’s supper which expressly reserved for members of the believing body. It is out of love that we do not encourage an unrepentant sinner to believe they are sav

    First, it doesn’t matter if it works. Parents have to maintain the right to seek out the religious and moral training of their choosing. When we lose that right, it’s all over folks. Secondly, Part of the reason many people believe gays can’t change is that everytime we hear about someone who used to be gay we say “they went through a phase” or “they were experimenting.”. It’s easy to say that practicing homosexuals can’t change when we dismiss every instance of change by saying “they weren’t really gay to behin with.” I have met two people who said that a similar therapy worked for them after they became Christians. I believe God can work all sort of changes in repenting heart. We shouldn’t dismiss these therapies just because they don’t work for everyone,

    Democrats have a funny way of defending women. They want to take away their guns and then let men into women’s bathrooms and locker rooms. They want college campuses to be “gun-free zones” but they also want unisex dorms. The places that have gone the route of exceptions for “transgenders” typically decide that it is easier in the long run to eliminate gender specific areas in the first place. Inviting men into the places where women are the most vulnerable and then denying those women the right to protect themselves, sure sounds like a War on Women to me.

    So it’s official. Billy and the Blaze staff are posting a pro-sodomy article every day now. None from the other side. Funny how Glenn used to warn about liberals trying to overload us on a topic so that we are desensitized and eventually accept it, and now his site is doing the same thing. Every day there is an article about some ” Christian” or “conservative” who now supports gay marriage. Of course, it always turns out that they were neither Christian nor conservative to begin with. Rob Bell is a perfect example. He is a universalist who believes there is no Hell, God is someone or something but he doesn’t know what, and that all people (even Hitler) go to heaven even if they never believe in God. Christians and conservatives need to be alert that there is an effort to convince us that our own people have abandoned us, and it’s happening right here on the Blaze. Take heart, the faithful will not be moved by the wickedness of our culture.

    Surprise, Surprise another gay marriage article on the Blaze. Wow, I think they waited one whole day between pro-sodomy posts this time. Funny, I have seen almost daily articles on new supporters of gay marriage, but none on the millions of Christians who will not be moved. I have not seen any articles about Conservatives who say that they will not allow the whims of sinful man to turn them from the laws of God. Come on, Hilary Clinton supporting perversion is news? Really? The Blaze has apparently gone from covering conservative/libertarian news and views to a vehicle for pushing Glenn Beck’s personal ideology on conservatives. What a shame.

    Sorry about the double post. Guess the comment went through after all. My bad!

  • March 15, 2013 at 9:53am

    @behindblueeyes i did post an extensive list of links as per your request but it must have triggered the spam filter. just search “gay marriage” in the Blaze search bar and you will see a pretty big list just for the last two weeks. Almost all of them revolve around a “conservative” changing their mind. Just saying, you rarely saw an article like that before and now they are posting them almost daily. You can’t tell me that a solid month of conservatives-are-seeing-the-light-and-embracing-gay-marriage doesn’t point to an agenda.

  • March 15, 2013 at 9:25am

    These are just from the past couple of weeks. Just saying there is one of the articles almost every day now. I don’t see the Blaze rushing to cover those who are still opposed to gay marriage. And their coverage of pro-gay supporters went from an occasional piece to an all out everyday thing as soon as Glenn became more vocal about his position. Enough already, we don’t need an update every single time a “conservative” changes their mind.

    Ugh. I’m about done with the Blaze. I hate to say it, but it’s true. This site has been pushing the gay marriage angle ever since Glenn Beck changed his mind. It will never be a conservative position. Maybe a libertarian, maybe a Republican, but never ever ever a conservative one. True conviction means standing firm even when it’s hard, unpopular, and personally difficult. People who allow their beliefs to be determined by the changing winds of popular culture are not conservative and they certainly aren’t Christians either. Beck and the “pastors” who advised Portman have shown that they put man above God and popularity above conviction. Winning elections by embracing immorality would be hollow and meaningless.

    I get it, the Blaze is jumping on the gay marriage bandwagon because Glenn Beck did. But let’s try to remember that as great as Glenn has been the last few years, he kind of went a bit wacky after the last presidential election too. Remember the whole “McCain would have been worse for America than Obama” interview http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-504423_162-5328053.html ? And there is no doubt, that he was WRONG. He even said he would have voted for Hillary Clinton if he had the chance. He spent the first few months of Obama’s presidency insisting that conservatives were overreacting. But by the end of 2009, he was our fiercest ally once more. Glenn is an emotional guy and he belongs to a religion that is not based in scripture. So when the poop hits the fan, he is prone to go off the rails a bit. He can say all he wants that he is a Christian who believes in “the truth,” but he has shown that he puts the popular sentiment of man above God’s word. I like him, he’s usually on our side, but at the end of the day, he’s not a conservative, he’s a libertarian, and he’s not a Christian either. I take Glenn Beck for what he is, I just wish the editors of the Blaze would stop tailoring the articles here to his latest mood swing.

    I bet that very few of those “1.4 million signatures” were from parents of Boy Scouts. No one else’s opinion should matter. As a mother of three boys, I can guarantee that I would never lobby for the “right” to send them in the woods with a homosexual male.

    If you can separate your Christianity from the rest of your life, you’re not a Christian. Period.

    Sorry, but the store should have the right to refuse service. This is not the same as discriminating by race because it involves the store owner’s religious sensibilities. If the owner feels that this would be an endorsement of an immoral behavior, then she has the right to refuse. If people don’t like it, they don’t have to patron the store. If she is willing to sacrifice the business, then no one should be allowed to tell her that she can’t stand up for her beliefs. This is the real problem with legalizing gay marriage. It is often used as an excuse to attack Christian business owners and put them in the position of abandoning their beliefs or risk being attacked/sued for discrimination.

    So let me get this straight. Someone who doesn’t believe in the free market couldn’t fix the auto industry? That’s like saying a tax cheat couldn’t fix the treasury department. Or that a communist green jobs czar and manufacturing czar couldn’t stimulate the private job sector. Weird. It’s almost like saying that someone who has never accomplished anything except for community agitating would make a crappy president.

    How about a black guy who sent black unemployment soaring? Or a black guy who eliminated funding for vouchers that allow poor black children to attend better schools? Or a black guy whose energy policies are causing a spike in costs that most working class black people can’t afford? Or a black guy who wants to fund an institution which aborts a disproportionately high number of black babies? Could that guy be a racist plant by liberals?

    Nice of him to whine about the rich after he’s made millions in films that are funded by the investments of other rich people. Also, he apparently doesn’t understand the term job creator. You don’t have to literally start a small business to create jobs. Every time he and his fellow wealthy stars send their dogs to therapy, get a coffee enema, or spends their money on even the most frivolous things, they are keeping people employed and creating jobs. As for those who “sock it away,” unless they are literally hiding it in a mattress, they are helping the economy also. When their money is invested in the market or even just sitting in a savings account, they help to grow the financials market. Where does this genius think our 401K’s and IRA’s are invested? Where does he think even the lefty union pensions are invested? When the government takes all the money that the rich are “hoarding,” we can kiss our investments, retirement plans, and kid’s college funds goodbye.

    First off, no one knows what Jesus Christ looked like in human form!!!!!! The Bible doesn’t tell us. Anyone who thinks they see His face, is wrong. Not to mention that God tells us not to embrace graven images or to worship things made in the “likeness” of God. That, is idol worship. Finally, you must ask yourself a simple question: “Why in the world would Jesus choose to appear on a WalMart receipt?!”
