How can a person think he/she will serve God acceptably if they throw away Biblical principles?
God is not required to accept an unrepentant sinner.

‘Anti-muslim sentiment has been on the rise FOLLOWING TERROR ATTACKS in Paris, France, and San Bernardino, California’
NO, we will not embrace evil…and may those who perpetrate such reap what they sow.

We are all God’s creation, we are not all God’s children…
John 1:12 ‘But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.’
1 John 3:8 ‘Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.’
1 John 3:10 ‘By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.’
Romans 9:8 ‘This means that it is not the children of the flesh who are the children of God, but the children of the promise are counted as offspring.’
Unrepentant sinners who deny Christ are not God’s children.
"Unrepentent sinners who deny the Christ are not God's children"
First: that judgement is for god to make not for man
Second: that judgement is pronounced upon the wicked during the final judgement that occurs after the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ressurections. during our lifetime, while we can still repent, we are ALL God's children. No conditions
SDFFT Jesus disagrees with you, John, 8:44 "You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
Therefore some people have Satan as their father and others have God.
God The Father is our spiritual Father. While we may not enter into His Kingdom and be acknowledged as joint heirs with Christ, we are all His spiritual offspring. Your doctrinal point is incorrect.

‘OMG, an older person has issues with a younger generation’
The guy is 43 years old, well past the age of accountability…time for him to…
I definitely agree with that. My comment was more about the generational generalities that were reflected in the article. But the specific guy discussed is a total loser.
But for the specific case of this 43 y/o loser, you could make a case that his parent's enabling behavior is what created this freeloader and is therefore more condemnable.

“Unless you repent, you shall ALL likewise perish”
‘In Chapter 8 we learned that Jesus became King in heaven in 1914′
In 1914…?! Sorry, but you need to seek the (REAL) truth before it’s too late.

‘Offer your proof that the “true church” was hijacked in 400AD. You see, it’s a false claim based on fabrications of Protestants. The proof can easily be found in the writings of the Early Church Fathers, the catacombs in Rome, historical writings, Church Councils, etc’
What about God’s word, the Bible…He is the authority above ALL.

‘Much of what he has read in her “posts and subsequent media reports” is simply untrue’
‘Abedini pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic assault 2007 and was allegedly sentenced to 90 days in jail, that sentence was suspended and he was placed on a year-long probation’
Abuse is not love, perhaps he should read the (his) Bible…
Doesn't mean he did anything wrong. Might have been a deal to avoid a long drawn out trial, hurting the children etc. I'm always cynical of these accusations at their outset until further information is gathered. Way too often it's easy for the woman to claim abuse, only to be investigated and found out it's not the way things really are. On the other hand, I'm sure there's plenty of cases where it's worse than we actually were told. But for me, any person, male or female, that goes on social networks to "discuss" their personal problems, is suspect.
Wow perpetuating the republican war on women and victim blaming?
You might as well have worked in something about how she is browner than you are comfortable with for the classic blaze ignorance hat trick
JamesCrow - no, what he is perpetuating is the truth. False accusations of abuse do happen, and more frequently than I'm sure you'd care to realize. I myself was in a situation around 20 years ago where I had a girlfriend who had serious anger management issues, and when I'd finally had enough of it and announced that I was leaving her, she physically attacked me. Being that I was taught never to hit a woman, all I could do was to try and shove her away from me so I could get the hell out. On my way out the door she grabbed the phone and called the police, claiming that I was beating her up. The police showed up, asked her what happened, she told them that I hit her, and without even asking me one question the police cuffed me and arrested me and charged me with domestic assault. The DA offered to reduce it to a disorderly conduct, which I agreed to, as lord only knows what a jury would've decided. It could have been a jury filled with people like you who will automatically believe whatever accusation a woman makes and will see anything to the contrary as "victim blaming."
I'm not saying that I disbelieve this woman's story here, but the notion that any suspicion or disbelief of a woman's accusation can just be instantly characterized as victim blaming and a war on women is mindless bullcrap.
James Crow, as a woman, what I just read you wrote gave me the heebie-jeebies. Very creepy, indeed. Instead of having compassion for the situation and this woman you went political. Very creepy indeed.
People read the Bible differently. Here's a website, and there are plenty more like it, giving ways to "discipline" your wife, under the Biblical theory, or so they believe, that a man rules his wife and is obligated to "correct" her for not yielding to his wishes and acknowledging he's the boss of her. To be sure I haven't read one that says you should beat your wife, but it's still plenty weird:
"If your wife is un-submissive in the sexual arena and chronically denies your sexual advances (without legitimate medical or psychological reasons for doing so) then perhaps that upcoming trip you were going to take her on gets canceled. Maybe that wardrobe upgrade your wife was looking forward to gets downsized or canceled. The Bible says a man has to supply his wife with clothing, but it does not say it has to be the expensive clothing she wants!"
If that's your Christian idea of a happy marriage, be my guest. But I wouldn't want a wife who would put up with that kind of crap.
"If that’s your Christian idea of a happy marriage, be my guest. But I wouldn’t want a wife who would put up with that kind of crap."
Well I wouldn't want a wife who chronically denies my sexual advances! If my hypothetical wife chronically denied my sexual advances, why in the hell should I bend over backwards to make sure she's provided with all the fancy stuff she wants?
Mrs. Abedini claims that the abuse became worse while he was in the Iranian prison. In October of 2015, she posted on Facebook that she was not even able to communicate with him. Their limited communication was only through his parents who were able to visit him occasionally. The parents had to leave Iran so communication was completely cut off.
In November, she suddenly claimed that he had been abusing her while he was in the Iranian prison. When people pointed out the impossibility to that, she changed to say that they were communicating through Skype daily.
Obviously, something is very, very off about her story and yet Christian people forsake all Christian principles by immediately assuming he is guilty.
I'm a Christian people. I'm not forsaking any principles... I am not the judge nor the jury. What complicates these stupid situations is when it's plastered on social media for the world to see and make judgments on with little to no information. I'm sure there are woman who fake abuse and there are men who do abuse. I don't take either seriously when I hear it through social media. I take the same approach when I hear white trash folks share their whole life story... nobody asked. Nobody cares. People with real abuse typically are not quick to share it.
“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms …. disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants. They serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
- Thomas Jefferson
“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good”

‘You posted: “No, I will not “seek to find out much more” about the filth…” Yet you clicked on a link and… Found out more “about the filth…” So yes. You lied’
‘If you actually cared ONE IOTA about folks in the LGBTQ community “you would seek to find out much more about an event like this” before joining-in on the bashing of it’
SEEK to find out much more ABOUT an event like this, NOT read ABOUT said PAST event…The fact that you clearly state “If you actually cared ONE IOTA” says all that needs to be said, reading ABOUT what transpired is NOT what you were implying.
Keep badgering…it only makes me stronger.

‘Keep such judgments to impacting ONLY YOUR LIFE, however you want to judge with YOUR version of morality’
And YOU judge with YOUR version of morality, or the lack thereof, so…the problem is…? I’ll sum it up for you in ONE word…CONTROL, that’s why creeps like you infiltrate schools, scouts, etc. wherever children are present to promote YOUR version of (Im)morality.
‘You now double-down with but yet another assumption of YOUR beliefs ONTO ME’
Look in the mirror lately, didn’t think so…That’s all you do, make assumptions and push YOUR beliefs onto others.
‘If someone is going to investigate something… They probably should have at least a MOST BASIC understanding of that which they are investigating’
Perhaps you should heed your own words regarding assumptions.
‘So you’re gonna judge yourself on that one – eh?’
Let me guess, “you want to judge with YOUR version of morality”…hypocrite.
‘I doubt you feel much guilt over anything you do/believe’
Assume what you will, your opinion is irrelevant.

‘THE determiner of which humor is morally deprived’
In my life, yes…don’t like it, too bad.
‘I said NOTHING about Heartsill being a Republican. What I questioned was… Someone who doesn’t even know what LGBTQ stands for investigating a LGBTQ event’
Ah yes, if he’s not a rabid ‘supporter’ like you, it’s impossible for him to be objective.
‘Does such just help you feel more superior?’
Perhaps you should ask yourself that question since your only reason for coming to this site is to bash others for their (differing) opinions.
‘A “monster”? No. Probably not at least. And I have NEVER suggested you would actually join-in in any physical abuse, I sure would hope not’
No, but…probably not…? Whatever, no loss.
‘Abuse takes many forms, those who far too often resort to suicide because they can no longer handle the emotional/mental abuse. (Oh wait. You can’t ask them because they’ve KILLED THEMSELVES over such abuse!!!)’
And…? I haven’t emotionally or mentally abused any homosexual, therefore…your attempt to lay guilt fails.
‘Apparently you DID find out more about the event.So now you are lying to me and yourself’
There is a link embedded in the article, clicking on it constitutes lying…? *rolls eyes*

‘If you actually cared ONE IOTA about folks in the LGBTQ community you would seek to find out much more about an event like this’
No, I will not “seek to find out much more” about the filth Killerman, and Coco Peru espouse…
‘Peru sang a ballad about how bullies should be poisoned and (expletive deleted) die. Coco mentioned the F-word several times, at which point our group left early. ‘This is not the message that our students need to hear’ Ehlert wrote. ‘We are working hard to eliminate hate and bullying against all people, not shift the aggression from one group to another’
January 28, 2016 at 9:15pm
‘Other reports have offered that Killerman’s remarks, intended to be jokes/humerous’
Yeah, humorous…only if one is morally depraved…
‘As for giving you other specific examples of child molestation jokes…Go find your own’
I’ll pass, not interested in the filth that a so-called comedian like Killerman finds humorous…
‘One of those govt authorities investigating this event, Greg Heartsill, he didn’t even know what LGBTQ stood for…Yea. He’s gonna offer a fair investigation of such an event’
Oh No…!! A REPUBLICAN…RUN FOR THE HILLS…!!!! Idiot…
‘So you’re gonna offer that you’re a LOVING, accepting supporter of those in the LGBTQ community – Care to offer ANYTHING that would lead me to believe you have even basic respect for anyone who is LGBTQ?’
I don’t rubber-stamp the sexual proclivities of any so-called “consenting adults”…nor will I, ever…don’t like my stance, that’s your problem. As for basic respect, it doesn’t matter what I offer, you “choose” to believe I’m a monster who wouldn’t defend a homosexual who was being beaten, in your eyes…I would join just to get in my share of kicks.

‘These comments were jokes – JOKES’
Yeah, that must be why Iowa State Lawmakers are conducting an investigation.
‘And yes, even this kind of material can have jokes be made’
Right, because comedians have been cracking “jokes” about “the legality of adults having sex with underage minors” for years. I challenge you to name one …besides Killerman.
‘For some folks in the LGBTQ community – who otherwise are nothing but stressed out because of how folks like YOU treat them’
I’ll wait while you back up your accusation, and not through trolls like you…but people who I have had face to face encounters with…such as family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, acquaintances, passersby, etc. Oh, and good luck…you’ll need it, I’ll be waiting a very long time.
 January 27, 2016 at 9:52pm
‘The ‘good’ that I was taught through my life of Christian…’
So, “adults having sex with underage minors” is your idea of ‘good’…?!
‘Killerman explained how to browse the internet for orgies, find pornography, how to send naked photos of themselves, and the legality of adults having sex with underage minors’

The patience of God towards sinners, is the greatest miracle in the world, but…though lasting, it will not be everlasting, and ripeness in sin is a sure proof of judgment at hand.
