So by that notion, ALL "sin" is worthy of a death sentence. Is that where all the "people deserve Hell for even the smallest sin" stuff comes from? It's an absurd belief, IMO.
@Keres... Sin separates us from God. He is perfect... This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. (1 John 1: 5)... God cannot be condone any sin. This is why everyone needs the grace of God; and--honestly--what person has ever lived that has only one small sin?
TruthsCertainRing, I understand that you believe the god [in your bible] to be “perfect”. I happen to know that the bible god character isn’t. However, it isn’t for me to show you where. If you are interested, you would find them on your own.
I also understand that the bible claims a great many things about the god [light,.....no darkness] that would be inconsistent with the narrative.
The ideology that “one small sin” deserves an eternal Hell [a concept I no longer accept, even biblically] is one of the most heinous of doctrines to come into existence.
Then were all going to hell. . .pfft if it existed.

Judas Iscariot had the VERY SAME ARGUMENT as you… Just saying…

If an American mom was good enough for the SOB at the White House right now, it is PERFECTLY FINE with this one.
Not to mention, Ted Cruz sounds and acts A MILLION TIMES MORE AMERICAN than “The One”.
Call it a draw.

Good! Very good! Very good Mom!

Let me put it like this. The only thing this reminds me of is the issue of having a pregnant teen daughter marry the “baby daddy” in a hurry. Everyone knows it’s the “right thing to do”. Everyone knows a child needs both parents. But when the “baby daddy” is NOT the best suitor for your little girl… I know whereof I speak. My best friend in HS got pregnant by this loser guy and both had to be married in a hurry. Her parents were there for the wedding. I knew both her parents. Both were well-known teachers in our community. The last thing anyone expected was for their only daughter to do this. I wasn’t there, but she showed me the pictures. I couldn’t avoid seeing her parents’ faces in those pictures: let me say I have seen more cheer at a funeral. They knew what was coming, and they were right. I’ve never felt so much sorrow for parents who were not mine before.
And this was just for a pregnant teen.
Now, let me ask you a question. Who would you, as a parent, rather BETRAY: your child… or God? Think about it, long and hard. Many Christian parents will face this one: it will hit them like a freight train. You will do best not to wish it upon anyone.
No one should have to think long and hard about your little conundrum.
Side with and choose to love the person that, you know, actually exists.
In the case you cite, the parents had the chance to provide parenting to both daughter and son-in-law. They may not like the things the wayward daughter and son-in-law do but they have the opportunity to help them learn a new way to live. It may take a life time but it's what we do as parents. God Bless you.

A comparison to the fanatics in WW2′s Japanese Empire would have been more accurate.
Because, yes, we had to… well…

You many not regret it now… but YOU WILL regret it later. Guaranteed.
I understand that part kitty, no argument from me on that, it is the cavalier nature of the death that grace is talking about, the jokes should stop.

We all know those golden statuettes usually go to some art film or some other snobbish movie nobody sees… unless you want to be considered part of the “in” crowd, the “cocktail party” circle, and not the plebeians who dare to think “American Sniper” is worth a lot more…
There are very few exceptions to that rule, of course.
Honestly, I couldn’t care less if “American Sniper” doesn’t win a damn worth of anything on Sunday. We all know that no one in Hollywood gives a damn about what the American people think.

Fine and good… but… What does the fox say?

Good thing that I seldom, if ever, pick just any book at at Christian bookstore… And I mean, there’s a whole lot of junk pretending to be books in display at a Christian bookstore.
Frankly, I must have passed it by, because I never saw it displayed.

Umm… Nope. The right thing was to pull it off the shelves. Reputations are on the line here.

So, the kid has not received a penny towards his care from this racket? And who perpetuated it? You guessed it – his Dad!
I like a lot of what Donohue does, but this time....his timing just really sucked!

Yeah, I remember a certain revolution and a high-minded declaration based on “reason, science and critical thinking”…
Only thing was, it ended with a Reign of Terror and people meeting Monsieur Guillotine for even the slightest suspicion…
