‘I only said our concern should be focused on our actions while we are here’
That is not what you said…and I quote…
‘This world should be our focus, regardless of what happens after we die’
Regardless of what happens…? NO, a Christian does not compromise their soul, nor does it require one to take their focus off of Christ. There is no sin in helping others, such as feeding or giving them something to drink, nor is it a sin to clothe someone, help them pay a bill, etc…and again, it does not require one to take their focus off of Christ. I don’t help others because of some reward I may or may not earn, nor is it because I am afraid of some eternal judgement. Being a disciple of Christ does not require compromise…and my soul, unlike yours, is not for sale.
John 15:19 ‘If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.’
Unlike you, I am not trying to win the approval of human beings.
“If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.”

When you have (so-called) adults who trample, pepper spray, etc. to get that bargain on Black Friday, what do you expect…They value “junk” more than life, and they’re willing to do anything to get it.

‘Nobody who needs to read them’
LOL, people do not need to read what a nobody has to say. A ranting lunatic deserves to be ignored, consider it done.

Colossians 3:1 ‘Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.’
Matthew 16:23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but on the things of man.”
Philippians 3:19 ‘Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.’
Matthew 6:20 ‘But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’
2 Corinthians 4:18 ‘So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.’
Romans 8:24 ‘For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?’

‘We live in this world right now. This world should be our focus’
You are simply…wrong…
1 John 2:15 ‘Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world–the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life–comes not from the Father but from the world.’
Romans 12:2 ‘Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.’
James 4:4 ‘You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.’
Galatians 1:10 ‘Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.’

‘Godless people passed a law defining that a unborn baby isn’t a living person’
According to the depraved left, Terry Schiavo was no longer a “human being” and apparently her family is “stupid” for believing otherwise. Suffice it to say…I have NO respect (insert every derogatory name imaginable) for ANY of them.

‘Your sister was not a human being, stupid. She had stopped being one years earlier when she no longer had a brain capable of supporting a human intellect’
‘Maybe you wouldn’t see that person as such a good friend anymore…’
2 Corinthians 6:14 ‘Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?’

This pastor, like many, are focused on the things of this world, in this case, homosexuality…perhaps he should re-read 1 Corinthians 5:9-13 with regards to Expelling the Immoral Brother, or 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 where God says Do Not Be Unequally Yoked, or maybe Ephesians 5:8-21 about being Children of Light.
The Bible clearly tells Christians to have nothing to do with evil, to cast a (former) brother or sister out of the church if they remain unrepentant of their sin…YET, almost daily…there’s an article spouting how Christians should embrace sinners in their sin, which is nothing more than allowing the wolves in sheep’s clothing into the church (leavening)…perhaps he should also re-read 1 Corinthians 5:1-8 where Immorality is Rebuked. If we are to expel a brother or sister in Christ, unless they repent…what does that say for those truly outside the church…?
1 Corinthians 5:2 ‘And you are inflated with pride, instead of filled with grief so that he who has committed this act might be removed from your congregation.’
You are exactly correct, TGD. I cringe every time I read about the Episcopal Church and Presbyterian USA allowing actively homosexual pastors lead congregations. Those pastors are living in sin without repenting. How on earth can they preach the Gospel with any credibility? It's no wonder those denominations are dwindling to nothing. By trying to be "inclusive" they are putting aside the entire message. Very sad.

‘Great Power and Peace in Knowing where we will spend Eternity’
Indeed…He is called The Great Comforter for a reason…

Sounds like she fears death, yet no amount of preventive surgery will stop the inevitable.
Yeah boy! I can’t believe that any parent in their right mind wouldn’t want their daughter to go out with this walking advertisement for stupidity. (sarc off) I think he’s going to be very popular in jail with that “hello kitty” tat.

‘Some estimates collected prior to the recent matrimonial change reportedly found that hundreds of additional churches — up to 800 — could end up reassessing their relationship with the denomination’
Revelation 18:4 ‘Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues.” For her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.’
Christians adhere to God’s Word…not the whims of man.

1 Peter 2:13-14…
‘It is the command of God that authorities should be obeyed, it makes for His glory, as well as for the good of men, when they are submitted to in things that do not contradict the revealed will of God, for otherwise, not man, but God, is to be obeyed.’
Apparently, Lisa Sharon Harper must think she's in Iran or China. Mr. Graham or any of us don't need her permission to worship our faith. That's what the First Amendment is for, freedom of religion. She, Jim Walls and other who signed this letter will just have to "tolerate it", like these drama queens stated.
May I just share one of the most despised scriptures in all the New Testament - Romans 13:1-7 "Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing. 7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed."
I hate injustice & abusive taxes & power, etc. as much as anyone, but the Bible is clear that we are to work within the law not against the law. Remember, when Paul wrote this the Roman Empire that was ruling the known world was full of poverty, slavery, injustice, infanticide, & even the persecution of Christians. In spite of all that, the apostle commanded obedience
I know several black Christians who would not agree with her. Her problem began when she thought she could ignore the Bible's teaching that "pastors" (also called bishops, elders, shepherds, or overseers in scripture) have certain qualifications that they must meet and that among them are that they are to be men, fathers, husbands, sober, etc. Read Titus 1:5-9 and 1 Timothy 3:1-7. She is not qualified to be a pastor to begin with, but those who will not submit to God's authority will certainly not submit to that of the government.

‘You take totally useless thing and make something useful for the society’
‘If ONLY these brilliant minds could apply that same concept to some conservatives, to some who regularly post here’
‘Recognize the ethnicity of the majority of that Purdue University lab’
‘At least of the six people shown working, not a single one looked like a Caucasian’
Look in the mirror to see totally useless. There is nothing useful to be gleaned from your post, it’s divisive and racist…same liberal rhetoric, different day.

The best part about those perpetuating this evil…they lose. Every last one will reap what they’re sowing, and may they be shown no mercy.
