    I’m not condoning sin… not one iota. If being friends with sinners you can’t accept makes me a heretic, then I guess a heretic I shall be. Although, it’s funny that Jesus hung out with the same people you despise, while you are parroting the same actions as the Pharisees. And now for a bit of facts… homosexuals make up an estimated 3% of our population. Look at that against the 85% of men in the church who admitted in a survey to viewing pornography, with more than half of them admitting to it being at an addiction level. We haven’t cornered the market on righteousness, so let’s stop pretending as though we are better than everyone else and worry about our own sins. Embrace sin? Absolutely not! Embrace the sinner with the love of God, and allow discipleship and the Holy Spirit to shine a light on areas the sinner needs to surrender as they grow? Absolutely! The bullhorn and sandwich board routine will do nothing more than further isolate us from having any influence on the very people we should be trying to reach.

    DLV… you are taking for granted that nonbelievers knows that their sin is in fact sin. That is rarely the case. True, Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well to “go and sin no more”… he didn’t condemn her for her sin… he didn’t ridicule her for her sin… he merely showed her that she needed a savior because of sin in her life. Did she sin again in her life? I’m sure she did, and she would have found the same grace from Jesus had she encountered Him again. Go and sin no more is the ideal… we wouldn’t need a savior if it were possible to go and sin no more.

    You guys can give me all the thumbs down you want, but you don’t bring people to the realization of sin by beating them over the head with it when they didn’t ask for your opinion in the first place. You bring folks to the cross by accepting them where they are, just as Jesus did. It is through their relationship with God and discipleship from believers that ultimately gives you a credible voice to use to speak into their lives and perhaps reveal areas in their lives where they can do better and find what God intends for them. Until then, you love your neighbor.

    Did they discriminate? Yes! Should he have kept his mouth shut and looked for opportunities to love his neighbor as Jesus commanded instead of damning to hell an entire group of people who just so happen to sin differently than him? Absolutely! American Christianity has completely lost its way and has become nothing more than an Anti-(fill in the agenda) movement. When we stand for what Christianity is vs. what it is against, we might be onto something.

    Epic response to one of the biggest idiots the Dems have ever run.

    Dark mysterious omen…. spoooooookyyyy… woooooooooooo… fades away into oblivion with no substance… same Glenn, different day.

    Yeah, never mind that spike to over $4.00 a gallon in the midst of Bush’s 2nd term… oh, and also let’s throw out the fact that the only reason gas was $1.84 when Obama took office was because of the precipitous collapse of the commodities market, stock market, job market, economic activity, etc.

  • January 23, 2015 at 11:27am

    pa_native, please expound on your claim that “all signs say it will (the economy collapsing)”… I’m interested, considering those claims have been wrong for about 8 years now, and I have several friends with moldy bags of beans and rice.

  • [-1] January 22, 2015 at 12:19pm

    Fox… MSNBC… both are op-ed networks and neither should be called news.

    OMG! Glenn was right after all! It’s the top down, bottom up, inside out, UPSIDE DOWN, shake it all about revolution! Grab your Beck-approved dehydrated food rations and run for the hills!

    Something Naghem said yesterday (not mentioned on The Blaze) stuck out to me:

    “I told him (Obama) that the kids and I prayed for him and loved him (that as Christians that is what we are to do).” Too bad so many have become so blinded by their cynicism and/or hatred for Obama, they can’t see the value in doing the same. God bless the Abedini family, and I will continue to pray for them as I have for close to 3 years now. I also pray Obama is able to do what is needed to reunite the family. #FreeSaeed

    And by “crazy”, I mean a candidate who uses cherry-picking techniques like trying to point out the labor participation rate being low as evidence that we’re in an economic depression, instead of the reality of it being fairly consistent with an aging population where baby boomers reach the age of 65 at a rate of 10,000 a day. Let’s face it… the economic collapse you guys have been incorrectly projecting every year since 2008 has not come and isn’t likely to anytime soon. Let’s move on and find a candidate that will create an environment where the economy can expand at a faster pace than it has been… you know… instead of acting like 2-year-olds, plugging our ears, closing our eyes and ignoring facts we don’t like because our juvenile feeling that nothing in this world can go right with Obama as POTUS.

  • [-15] January 21, 2015 at 11:47am

    Cruz is a robot and would never win in a national election. It’s about time we start looking elsewhere for a candidate who doesn’t appear crazy, even if it means we don’t see eye-to-eye with them on absolutely EVERYTHING. That’s called compromise, and contrary to popular belief among the tea party types, it doesn’t equate to giving pinko commies the keys to the kingdom.

    Not enough info to make a judgment at this stage… I wouldn’t be surprised by a follow-up that revealed a much more reasonable suspicion as to why they did this. The fact that they are self-proclaimed Christian preppers is likely the only reason we are seeing this on this particular site before all the facts are known. Gives the appearance of something that may not be so (targeting by the gov’t). Let’s cut back the paranoia some.

    Kill the economy? How many times has Obama, along with Congress, implemented something that the talking heads have said would “kill the economy”, only to have the economy plow through every bad policy put in place and continue growing, albeit in fits and tepid spurts. When we stop spouting the hyperbolic end-of-days rhetoric and supporting candidates who regurgitate that crap, perhaps we can be taken seriously when trying to vote in non-crazy candidates that will implement more business-friendly policies in the future.

    I share with others how my life has changed through my identity in Christ. What I don’t do is tell somebody else how to live their life. That’s the difference… I relate… I don’t compare. I choose not to do things like stand in front of an abortion clinic with a bullhorn and condemn women who are making a decision that will, more often than not, haunt them their entire lives. Equally, I choose not to believe that gay marriage is going to do anything to destroy the institution any more than what we straight folks have done to it already. And about the cleansing of the temple… sure, Jesus did that to the religious elite, and saved his harshest criticisms for them. The difference in how he handled the Samaritan woman at the well is that he was gracious and simply told her to “go and sin no more”, which of course she could not ever live up to… in which case she would have found the same grace and mercy had she encountered Him again after messing up. The problem is, we have become the religious elite… the Pharisees… we spend a majority of our time telling people who don’t sin the same way we do why they’re wrong, while piously patting ourselves on the backs for not being as sinful as they are. It’s sad that no one sees this, and I’m sure it grieves the heart of God much more than the sins of those who do not know Him yet.

    Yeah, and how about the fact that the divorce rate is exactly the same in the church as it is outside it’s walls?

  • [5] January 15, 2015 at 4:44pm

    “Was it worth it?”

    Glenn, I don’t doubt your heartfelt reactions to the film, however I can’t help but remember often how you toured the entire country on a bus beating the drums of war and telling us how “worth it” it would be and that we either go to Iraq or face WWIII (which you have claimed was on the horizon in dozens of different scenarios ever since)… so, I’m not quite sure you get to legitimately ask “was it worth it?”

    Jesus’ commandment was to love our neighbors as ourselves. I’m guessing a whole bunch of you guys really hate yourselves. And I’m pretty sure Christ would never say, “love the sinner, hate the sin”… I’m pretty sure He is of the opinion that, yes, we should love the sinner, however we should hate our own sin and simply love other people and look for opportunities to where we can offer somebody else the forgiveness we have been given. We have 40 million+ church folk in this country who admit they regularly view porn, yet we are going after gay marriage as the last bastion of moral hope for America? Please… get a life.

  • [21] January 15, 2015 at 1:44pm

    American Christianity sickens me… we have become nothing more than a group on a soapbox pushing our beliefs on everyone and making sure everyone knows what we are against. None of which is what Jesus did.
