With all due respect Jesus came to love the sinner not the sin. He was also THE path to God…in order to get there you must walk away from the world and follow Christ. Are we to love all and show the love of God at all time? Yes!!!!! But are we to be a stepping stone for the sinner – no!!! We are not called to support a sinner in their sin! We are called to be a light in a very dark place. It is up to that person whether or not they will follow God. I have neice that is a lesbian – she just came out less than a year ago. I still love her and spend time with her. I have no issue with that. Will I support her in her decision making? Nope!!! If she decides to be have a union with another girl will I give her relationship advise…nope! She will only ever be pointed to God. Will she hate me – maybe. If my straight nephew was having premarital sex I wouldn’t give him advise either! I care more for her soul than I do her pleasure. We all die……what we do here does matter. It has always mattered – that is the one thing other than God Himself that will never change over time. Those are 3 absolutes in this life. Again – I care more for her soul than I do her pleasure and I will not help her walk in the dark. Only help lead her to the light.

See I cant make you believe. All I can do is tell you He is real. All any believer since the dawn of time has done is tell you. This day in time will be further from believing because you need more proof. If God were to plop down next you and say “hi” you still wouldn’t believe. You would sum it up to science and ask yourself why you are delusional. If Jesus told you, like He did Thomas, to study the marks on His hands for yourself AFTER He defeated death, it would still be a delusion (but that is what it took for Thomas to believe). Faith in God is a choice. He is there – He has always been there. You are choosing not to see Him and not to believe in Him without truly seeking Him. You try to compare Him to anything in this world to see if He is real…and you can’t find anything because there is nothing you can compare Him too. There is no amount of proof anyone can give you to make you believe and no one can choose for you. It’s up to you and it’s simple….either you do or you don’t, but that doesn’t mean He isn’t really there. You can flip that on me too. But the difference bw you and I, I earnestly sought Him out and He met me where I was at. I will never sum Him up by the standards of this world, nor can I compare Him to it. He is above all that because He created it all for us. Atheist baffle me…you think He isn’t there, yet you have never truly looked for Him yourself. The only way to really know is for YOU to seek Him out.
February 3, 2015 at 2:14pm
Huff -the same scenario applies. I’ll ask you- when you die and He is quite real what are you going to say?
[-1] February 2, 2015 at 2:27pm
Absurd? J-Mo…I am guessing your response will be different when you have to take an account for your life as well huh? You cant necessarily stand there scratching your head apologizing stating “I really honestly didn’t think You existed. So many darwinians (yep He made them too) studied Your Creation and told me You weren’t real. They put You under a microscope and told me You weren’t there and I believed them….yes I believed them over You…I chose the world over You”. If this isn’t your response, I really don’t know what else you will say. But you need to think up an excuse now. He is real..I am sure He has been telling you for a while He is, but you keep rejecting Him. He is telling you now He is real. Mr. Fry is THE prime example of a mad atheist. Underneath it all – it’s anger, hate and rejection.

Ya know his anger toward God looked pretty genuine to me. He, just like every other atheist, is mad that God made him with free will. It’s not that he doesn’t believe, its that he doesn’t care for God. Those people are the ones that go into the lake of fire. The ones that flat out deny Him. I will say this in response “how dare God make us to have free will!” How dare God create a race that has the ability to choose Him for themselves. How dare God love us so much that He lay out in a book the instructions and a path. How dare the Creator of the Universe not want any form of evil in heaven with us all. How dare He actually say He loves us, even today, thousands of years after the fall of man. Day after day after day we choose a dying world over an everlasting God. Just how dare He! But ya know how dare us!!! He made us. He gave us ONE rule in the beginning and look what happened. We broke it!!! And we brake it DAILY. Therefore we have death, disease, depression, war, hate, perverts, rapists…..shall I go on? SIN is why there is so much destruction. We all got here 1 way (birth) we are all leaving this earth 1 way (death). So what makes people think there are some many magical places we can go when we die? Don’t be stupid people…God is very real. Life is serious – the lies of satan (worldly distractions) are very real. Through God’s love we are here, bc our Creator wanted us here. Get over it. He still loves you. Don’t be distracted!
It is absurd to think that Atheists are "Mad" at God. To them, god is a fictional character from a book and can be judged like any other such character. If one calls "Valdemort" from the Harry Potter books evil, does that mean you secretly believe he is real - not in the least, you are just passing judgement on the character based on his actions in a fictional narrative.
You seem to know all us athiests pretty well to make such a blanket statement as this:
"He, just like every other atheist, is mad that God made him with free will."
How can I be mad at a being who I don't believe exists? It doesn't follow that just because you believe in a being that we are mad at him because we don't share your beliefs. That's really silly. Are we mad at the Greek gods too? I don't believe they exist either.

All of hollywood lacks moral conviction. If you took it off air liberals and feminists would rise up in a similar much more loud voice than in 70s. None of this crap should be on tv….not just for a childs sake but for an adult as well. What happens in the bedroom needs to stay there. Porn has infected tv and will only get worse.

I hate politicians….I hate politics. I just pray someone could do the right thing for once and look past country boundaries and realize we are ALL human beings. To stop categorizing races that keep us separate. To stop seeing the color of one skin, the country they are from or the language they speak. I pray we can STOP allowing our differences to get in the way of true humanitarian aid and relief. The President is wrong. He is just worried about Americans. There are human beings over there being slaughtered – s l a u g h t e r e d. All he cares about is a political stance. There is something we can do Mr. President – the right thing and uproot the evil that drove those people to the mountains! We can do this…..but we don’t….for politics…for the race…for the power to sit in the chair of the most powerful seat in the world. He said every evil that was happening and turned his back on it on live tv. We as people are NUMB! We have to wake up….this is real…this isn’t a political race….this is humanity being slaughtered in the name of a false god! A god that calls for the slaughter of all that doesn’t bow to him. This is evil at its purist form…..and we turn our backs to help. We tell those people “here is food-water, we promise to rescue you when we can, but Americans must be protected first!” When are we going to wake up! We are all humans! The caliphate can only grow stronger….and spread like cancer….killing everyone in its path….while we watch….idly.
The republicans can't do the right thing because all the polls say 90% of half the people wont for them if 60% of them think Obama is getting picked on.
While you are praying, pray on this....
"He made from one every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation."

That is the beauty of Chris Elton – He came to fulfill the Law not change it. And He is alive today by the Holy Spirit which he freely gives to those that follow His ways. And His ways are stated in the bible. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow…for eternity. Elton’s idea of Christ is that of an Anti Christ. They will come to deceive many…..and many they have already deceived. Elton being a big one because he has influence on quite a few million people. And he will have to take an account for all that influence when his day comes.

BUT if Christians really want to send a message – cancel your cable provider. See what ATT does when that happens.
 May 16, 2014 at 1:36pm
Pfff….Christians also have to deal with intolerance…and its going to get worse. We as Christians have little eyes to protect, as well as our own. I have 9 nieces and nephews and have babysat for 19 years. I don’t let them watch movies where there is kissing between men and women that aren’t married. I respect the boundaries of my siblings and always will. Now ESPN aired a reaction like any other player. After watching the kiss I don’t think it was politically motivated to a point. This was live TV I think. I don’t watch sports, but if it was live there wasn’t a whole lot they could do about it. It looked like it was live. I think once they saw what he did – the faces of whoever runs ESPN turned a funny shape as soon as it happened. Not a shape that was like “that was wrong”, but a face like “how in the heck are we going to respond to this”. LOL. I don’t know if anyone has ever been to Vegas but at the Casino they section of walls of TVs mainly for gambling sports. It is a business! They can do whatever they want. ESPN is just a part of it all. And for Christians like me I understand that the world has a way and God has a way. I choose His way over the world. The world will die away along with everything in it. God is everlasting. So for you fellow Christians out there no mainstream TV is safe. All we can do is try our best to inform our kids of the world and its ways and protect their minds as instructed.
Did you not read the story? Then why would you post this? The face is a separate wood carving.

It’s that difficult to understand what I meant by Christian God. Christ was also Jewish, so if you want to split hairs go ahead. I know He is the God of the Jewish people.
@ Walk the Path
I did not say He was the God OF Love….I said God IS Love. Think about it for a moment then respond. The very essence of Love is God (as it says in the verse I posted with it – where is the confusion?). Yet He is a very Just God I will def agree with you there.
 April 22, 2014 at 1:42pm
It’s funny how they don’t want anything to do God but they will use the one Essence He actually is to make their movies (for money) – Love.
“1 John “4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
So in the big picture they are actually mentioning God… the Christian God is Love.
Actually he's not the Christian God, he is the God of the Jews into which you as gentiles were grafted in. In fact we call him Adon Olam God of the Universe. He is the creator of all things. Not just a Christan God!
Actually, He's not the Christian God, He is the God of the Hebrews into which you as gentiles were grafted in. Jews are just a subset of His chosen people from the lineage of Judah.
Actually, the god of love is a heretical concept. As the Rabbis say, kindness to the wicked is cruelty to the just.
The God of the Judaites, and the other tribes of Israel is a God of Justice.
It's that difficult to understand what I meant by Christian God. Christ was also Jewish, so if you want to split hairs go ahead. I know He is the God of the Jewish people.

And what does this have to do with youth leaving their faith you ask? Well – its easier to ignore and walk away from something you are asked to do that is hard. We live in an emotional time – if God asks us to do something we are afraid to do a lot of people walk away. Being a true bible believing Christian comes with persecution:
Jesus’s words: Mark 13:13
“And you will be hated by all for my name’s sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”
But its worth it.
Do I think the federal government should have a say in this particular area – no. I personally think a state by state roll call leaves it in the peoples hands. I will fight for anyone’s right to decide how they want to live their life. Will I sit idly by and watch my Christ professing best friend make sinful decisions – no because I love them enough to tell them their decision hurts the God within them.
Will I tell a perfect stranger that is living in sin what God thinks? Yes – but only if God has prompted me to do so at the time. I seek for His will not my own. I am not perfect myself – yes I have planks that I have to remove and sometimes daily. I am a messenger. That is what I am called to do – that is what the Christians on this site are called to do. But be careful of the message – make sure it’s of God and not you.

1. You can tell a gay person all day long they are wrong for living in sin BUT if they themselves are not convicted of it, it does nothing to help them. God is the one that calls us to Him – then our eyes are opened.
Vs: John 6:44
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day”. God is quite clear when He calls you. Has anyone seen the movie Flight with Denzel Washington? Yea go see it. That actually happens in real life!!! I’m living proof.
2. Not just that -you have to take the plank out of your own eye before you go pointing at others…specks.
3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.” Yep Jesus calls us hypocrits!!! All day long if we aren’t doing what we He instructs us to do. YET read #3.
3. BUT Christians are supposed to go to each other if the other, who already professes Christ, is NOW living in sin.
Vs: Galatians 6:1
“Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.”
End: We can only approach each other if w

I totally agree with you. No it wont be a perfect account because to many men had their say in it BUT God will use it for good. I’m excited about this. People will open their bibles over this.
February 26, 2014 at 4:53pm
Not just that but I think this movie is going to be freaking awesome!!! No it wont be perfect bc we are imperfect beings BUT it will get people wondering about it and will make them open their bibles. God uses all things for good!! This may not reach my standard of exactly biblical but I know He will use it for good.
