    Let me also be clear. I am by no means meaning to be hostile. Having a discussion like this on an internet forum lacks the emotions involved and leaves one up to having to interpret what the other is feeling.

    I dont think of you as any less Christian than I. I do not know what is in your heart. Only GOD knows. Hence the reason why I have come to the conclusion that GOD left the responsibility to himself for judging others.

    I do enjoy this discussion though. It makes one think harder about their stance and I feel GOD would commend us for discussing such a difficult topic. It helps us to grow closer to him by making us search deeper into his word. I thank you for that.

    Also how is allowing someone to live as they wish condoning anything? I just stated that if my pastor marries a gay couple I would leave the Church. HOW IS THAT CONDONING GAY MARRIAGE?
    Yes we live in America. You keep throwing bible versus at me that speak of an individual conforming to this world. Again, how is letting people live their lives as they choose conforming to this world? GOD specifically gave us the option to follow him or not follow him. Why cant you allow people that choice as well? Allowing others to live their lives as they see fit is no different that GOD allowing you to choose your own path. Again, leave the judging up to GOD and worry about how YOU live. Just because I do not care how other people live does not mean I condone their behavior. I am to do one thing and one thing only. Be a disciple. Share the word and GODS love to all humanity be it gay or straight, murderer or liar.
    All of Humanity is my brother and sister. See Mathew 18:15, Mathew 18:21, 2 Thessalonians 3:15.
    You forget, your sinful nature is no different than that of a murderer or gay man or drug dealer in the eyes of GOD. Sin is Sin. He loves us all equally. He gives each and everyone of us the same opportunity to be with him. It is the individuals choice and the individuals choice alone to take him up on that offer. Not your choice.

    Murder is also Sin. So your telling me that a person who was born mentally unstable and kills another person is all made up in my mind and that I would be insinuating that GOD made a mistake? Really? Your saying that people would choose to be born with Downs syndrome? Or cancer? Or Autism? Because if it was not a choice then that would mean GOD made a mistake in your eyes. If a person is born with gay tendencies thats IS equivalent in my mind as a birth defect. He chose to be gay no more than a person chose to be autistic. SIN caused the birth defect…not GOD.

    “Again your words betray you…God says marriage is one man and one woman…period, yet you condone the whims and traditions of men.”

    Your arguing over words. I dont care what you call it. Marriage, unity, gay marriage, straight marriage…WHATEVER! I was “married” to my spouse according to GODS commandments. I dont give a crap if you want to use the word “UNITED” in place of marriage. It is no different. What is different and what does matter is “HOW” you were married. With or without GODS blessing. What is so hard to understand about that? Would it make you feel better if gay marriage was termed Government Unity? Why? It would still not be recognized by GOD. Thats what ultimately matters. Thats why you are commanded to spread the word to show what is right and wrong. GOD gave us free will to choose the path we want. He did not give anyone the right to choose anothers path for them.

    “Nice try, fortunately not everyone is duped by your ‘christian’ rhetoric, in your own words you insinuate God makes mistakes…calling Him a liar.”

    So your saying that either downs syndrome or autism is a mistake made by GOD or it doesn’t exist? Please Clarify…

    ‘GOD does not tell YOU to judge’…Correct

    See – Mathew 7:1, Luke 6:37, Luke 6:41, John 8:7, Romans 2:1, Romans 14:10, Romans 14:13, 1 Corinthians 4:5, James 4:11

    Your mistaking judging the law vs judging for your safety or well being. Judging the law is reserved for Jesus. Thats his job. Not yours.

    Judging for your safety or well being is much different. You dont bake a cake or participate in a gay wedding because you are judging that it is not good for YOUR well being. People judge all the time on who they hang out with. I dont hang out with drug dealers or gang bangers. I am judging them as bad people for ME and thus I will not hang out with them. By your standards they are not even allowed in “YOUR” church. By my standards I think it is gross but they are my brothers and sisters in Christ and they are allowed to live as FREE human beings and can attend the same “GODS” church that I attend. Guess what though. If the pastor decides to marry them then I will leave that church. Why? Because now that pastor has decided to defy GODS word and I will Judge that pastor as unfit to help guide me. But I will still be friends with that pastor. I wont shun him. But I also wont participate in him blatantly defying GOD.

    @variance ” Liberals and “gays” wanting to voice and force their opinion upon the public through and with the state and its protection,”

    So are Christians. Christians are trying to make America into a Christian Utopia. Liberals are trying to make this into a Liberal Utopia. Gays, Socialist, Communist, etc. are trying to make this into their Utopia.

    How bout everyone worry about themselves? What the real problem is is that none of us truly want to be free. Why? Because being free means being burdened. No one wants to be free to experience failure. No one wants to be free and experience hunger. No one wants to be free and experience rejection. Everyone wants to be free up until it becomes burdensome. Then they want their Utopia. Freedom truly is the hardest thing in America to sell.

  • December 18, 2014 at 3:36pm

    @ variance, Your correct. But GOD does not tell YOU to judge. Thats his job. GOD does not tell YOU to force people to follow him. GOD is telling YOU to follow Him on earth as YOU would in Heaven. He is not telling YOU to force others to do on earth as in Heaven. Huge difference.

    @ TheGrtDcptn, Thanks for regurgitating most of what I said. I include all sides when it comes to force. You have no more right to force me to participate in your wedding than I do of telling you that you cannot get married. Plain and simple.

    @celtblood, agreed. The whole premise of calling it marriage over Union is nothing more than spoiled children not getting their way. Thats it. I dont care what you call it. Call it straight marriage and gay marriage I dont care. I was “married” to my spouse how GOD commanded. His opinion is all that matters to me. If you change the word “marriage” to “Union” it still does not change the fact that GOD commanded me to do it this way or that way.

    It all comes down to the fact that people are trying to force others to live “their” way. Gays say I have to participate in their ways which violates my religion and pursuit of happiness. Christians and Muslims are saying gays should live their way. How bout everyone just worry about themselves? How bout love thy neighbor and allow GOD to do HIS job?

    Pretty simple to me…

    mlimberg, grasping for straws does not help you. You did not let me down.

    “So if gay people want to get married then that is the equivalent of killing people!” HELLO! You have the right to Life…LIFE…Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

    What your doing is the same thing as those killing people in the name of religion. Your saying YOU have the right to FORCE people to YOUR way of thinking. Killing someone is a violation of LIFE. Remember the Declaration of Independence? The founders based our countries laws on Judea Christian values. But even they thought it necessary to not force their religion on people. You can live your life as long as YOU do not harm another.

    If you feel it necessary to FORCE YOUR beliefs on another than YOU are no different then those who murder in the name of religion. If YOU feel YOU have the right to do that then…God help you.

    In some case I do believe people are born gay. Those “girls” that have always been masculine since the age of 5 or those men who have always been feminine I do beleive are born that way. When a male has always been little and skinny with a very high pitch his whole life I think it is hard not to beleive “some” people are born that way.

    To me it is like being born with downs syndrome or autism. They just cannot help it. but like Willie said, “I’m not the judge. God’s going to be the judge, so it’s not my job to convince people to change their lives — it’s really through Jesus.”

    And therein lies the problem. We live in America not Heaven. No matter how hard we Christians try we will never recreate heaven on earth. We live in America and we need to remember that. People have the right to pursue happiness. If gay marriage makes you happy then by all means get married. But I also have a right not to participate. Your right to be you includes my right to be free from you!

    Now bring on the hate!

    I agree. Thought the same thing. The only thing a smartphone cannot do is print on demand. But really whats the point of that feature? I can send it electronically via smartphone to whomever I want and let them incur the cost of printing should they want a hard copy.

    Well being how next month my company is going to have a company wide meeting to prepare everyone (including me and I own the business) for wage cuts. I dont see how wages are moving in the right direction. Milk is nearly $5.00 a gallon and beef is running $6 to $7 a pound. My health insurance has climbed tremendously. Prices are continually rising as well as my taxes.

    My consumer confidence is not looking so good. Not sure about everyone else but from what I am hearing in my circles there is no consumer confidence. People are truly freaked out.

    Their, There. They’re grammar nazi’s. People make mistakes. Even english teachers…

    I knew alot of you would get your butts hurt when I told how “I” felt about one of his books. I have bought several of his books. Some good but most are just hyped up BS. Is it his fault, no. It is a marketing strategy. But it is a marketing strategy that is being so overused that it has become to “fictional”. Before Glenn became famous I dont remember him doing it as often. Once he started gaining recognition he started using these tactics. “Next year we got big surprises so make sure you tune in at the first” Then everyone would tune in expecting to hear something only to be told time and again “well were not ready yet but keep listening”. So after a month you would get the “big” news that turned out to be nothing.
    Glenn is not the only one guilty of it. Which the article shows. I am just saying that this type of marketing strategy is lame. It is everywhere. To me it is backfiring on people. As the article shows. The idea of “under promise and over deliver” has changed to “over promise and under deliver”. Because of this I no longer pay full price or jump in and pre-order “while supplies last”.

    So gets your heads out of the “he’s being mean to Glenn” crowd and start thinking. I have listened to Glenn before he became rich and famous and only told stories about abused children. By the way,Did anyone catch the conclusion to the story Glenn told about 10 or 15 years ago about the plane flying over mountains with dead people and the Russian Co-pilot was missing?

    I called this way before it happened. I told everyone he will not actually be eaten alive. Something will happen that will cause them to have to cancel it. How did I know? Because everything is hyped up anymore to get it to sell. I used to get disappointed but anymore I am skeptic of everything and just wait until it goes on sale, comes out on netflix, or watch it at a later time after I read all the reveiws saying whether or not it lived up to the hype.

    Glenn Becks book “the x-mas story” was the last thing I fell for. I am a huge fan but the way he hyped that book up I thought yes that would be a perfect wake up book for a family member. After hearing him cry about it, listeners calling in about reading it in the parking lot just before they start shooting up drugs and it changing their lives I thought great I am getting it! After reading it I thought what did I just read? I had my wife read it and she thought the same thing. We ended up donating it to the library.

    So everyone over hypes things anymore and I am for one sick of it and have grown immune to all the hype.

    I hope his death was quick and not the slow barbaric way they have been killing hostages.

    “who caught images of protesters climbing on the van’s hood, the motorist pulling away and apparently hitting protesters, the driver pulling out a gun, and police arresting him:”

    So this man was arrested for hitting protesters who were on the hood of his van, then pulled out a gun to defend himself when they continued to harass him? What a bunch of BS!!!

    If they quit trying to make their pizza taste like sweet candy they might sell more.

    Texas, I guess we should not be worrying about the NSA tapping our phone lines then. After all it is a public utility and we have no right to privacy if it is public, right?

    This is not right. What they are doing is insuring that you implicate yourself no matter what. Like your dad for instance. They are spying on him without reasonable cause . Then they will see an excess heat source which then gives them reasonable cause for a search warrant. Which then gives them access to your home where they can find tomato plants but wait, whats this your census says you only have two people living here, why is there four? Or whatever infraction they come up with…
