    Skin color = not a choice
    Sexual preference = choice

    Choice is something we should be able to discriminate against

    If said marriage is not legal in a state, it should be 100% no. Sadly, there are many useful idiots.

    mrshendricks, beautifully stated. I agree. I don’t think my comments would contradict your point. Perhaps if I restated:

    Truth is identifying reality for what it is, not what we think it is. So to me, doubt is our heart blinding us to Truth. We feel pain and emptiness, which we want to escape from. But that is where God operates in our lives – in our despair and brokenness. When we cannot remain in the pain of doubt, we are trying to control God’s attempt to connect with us. We want to arm-twist Him into an answer that frees us from pain, immediately.

    Not sure if that’s clearer…it’s Friday afternoon… :)

    Keres,

    It sounds like you had a desire to connect with Jesus. I would be curious as to why? What in your life put you at a point that Jesus was the direction you sought? People don’t seek out God when they are doing fine. They go to Him when they are hurting and broken. Forgiveness and grace for a great sinner probably feels different than forgiveness and grace for a small sinner (the latter really just being an example of lack of awareness of what sin looks like).

    It seems like facts and logic appeal to you. They do to me as well. There must be reason and rationale for everything. I would just encourage you to seek God not to connect with Him, but to let Him know your doubts and fears. That you’re not even sure He’s real. And then wait. This is the painful, difficult part. Waiting for God’s response. I have waited for moments with some issues, months/years with others.

    I also hope you atheism isn’t your hope by default, meaning it was the best thing that was left. I would encourage you to challenge those beliefs as well.

    Take care, good luck.

    “I love all religions but I am in love with my own. If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something else growing there. They come closer to God. When they come closer to God they have to choose.”

    I’d say she was misinformed about God if she thinks the God of Islam is the same as the Trinity. One does not come closer to God (there is only one) if they get closer to the Father of Lies via these other avenues.

    I would be curious to know what your doubt was about, and what you struggled with at that time.

    Truth exists and is not relative. That means truth is a definitive, identifiable thing. I canont be relative, therefore it is universal and must come from something higher than us.

    To have doubt is okay. But doubt is less about truth and reality, and more of the deceit of our own heart.

    Freethinkers? WIthout Truth, your thinking is not free. You are a slave. Truth comes from God alone.

    Whoa radical! Who are you to deal in judgment here? He who is without sin, cast the first stone. Do you think your sins happen in a vaccuum? Your life is as littered with victims as this man’s! Perhaps not from your fists. Maybe from your lack of love, or lack of generosity, or lack of mercy and grace.

    Look at the monster in the mirror first.

    The caller is right. Anger is the result of blocked goals/unmet longings. Anger is likely a justified emotion in most people. However, “do not sin in your anger.” It takes a long time to understand what sinless anger looks like. Jesus turned tables, and was angry, yet did not sin. Who of us could navigate those waters so perfectly?

    They must pay for their crimes. Anger is the fruit of a bigger issue. Caller is correct.

    Just wait until one of them asks “Mohammed who?” Then “peaceful” will take on a whole new meaning.

    People don’t realize when they are doing damage to themselves, hence the need for others to speak into their lives about it.

    98% vs 2%. It’s safe to say 98% do not have it wrong.

    Your editorials are so humorous.

  • [1] September 17, 2014 at 1:26pm

    9huskies,

    I was a Korn fan in my pre-Christian days. They are not a Christian band. How does saying “We wanna wake up hate, we wanna f#ck you up” have a Christian theme? Or how does saying “don’t let up til my a$$ is bleeding baby” coincide with the Bible.

    No, not Christian.

    Sorry. Once those organizations became politically correct, they became factually incorrect. The APA changed its classification of homosexuality by removing it as a psychological problem.

    No thanks. I deal in truth and facts. These organizations have betrayed the public with political correctness run amok.

    And again, the context where it works is a Christ-centered context. God is in the miracle business. He can change anyone’s life.

    Also, telling homosexuals that their behavior is okay is the real damage. It destroys them. It does not fulfill them. Lustful craving are sin and lead to no good – none. Homosexual STDs are out of control. The same can be said for heterosexuals who are just as sexually active. IT’S ALL WRONG!

    Peace out. God’s Word is truth. The only truth, and the is the truth that I can count on – definitely not man’s.

    Repeating yourself does not make the facts invalid. Reparative therapy does work, in a context.

    Do you think homosexuals are the only ones who have “urges?” Are sexual urges the only “most powerful force” out there?

    There is always a choice for anyone. The real question to ask here: is there such thing as a “right” choice? The answer is a resounding YES! God makes it clear what is right and what is wrong. Lustful cravings of any kind, whether thought of or acted upon are wrong. But God, in His infinite love, does not leave us to fend for ourselves. We can make choices. Free will is a real thing, it is not a figment of your imagination.

    So yes, anyone can choose to do right or wrong. Some have a harder time with making the right choices. Money does not drive me. Lust does. But I can control it by making choices.

    I really hope some day you see the lie you are believing for what it is.

    Lucretius, see my other response to you.

    But, yes, they can. It is a choice. The damage they have suffered to think the way the do can be undone, with much love and much time. We all have our cross to bear. A homosexual or a heterosexual, both can have lustful, sexual cravings that are not part of God’s plan. And yes, guaranteed, both can be redeemed.

  • [2] September 11, 2014 at 1:38pm

    Such therapy is actually quite effective. When a male suffers abuse that does not recognize his masculinity, sexual disorders prevail, with homosexuality on the very abusive end of the scale. Such harm can absolutely be undone, though it will take months and years of hard, committed work.

    It must be done in the context of knowing Jesus Christ loves them and forgives them and will walk with the on their road to recovery.

    BlackCrow, seentoomuch, ChittyChitt,

    Game, set, match. Well said.

  • [1] September 11, 2014 at 1:26pm

    I think it is better that boys with sexual identity/preference issues be in an organization that can help them control/remove such thoughts, rather than one that affirms it is okay.

    Sosorry,
    The thought, or the act? You can prevent the act, definitely. You can “take your thoughts captive” as the bible states and not degrade your body.
