I don't know how the Pope can do that and sleep at night. I assure you, this gay hatred that you see in folks who claim to be Christians isn't Christ-like at all. Jesus ate with the tax collectors, hung with Samaritans, Jews, Gentiles.ShrinerMonkey said:No, he is also busy condeming the sexual behavior of gays and straights alike:
I would rather he stick to blessing cars.
Waste it? He only gets so many?veedubyo said:....... I think JC would rather people bless other people in deeds rather than waste it on cars or even just saying to another person "God Bless you" (although the latter with an actual kind deed is very effective)

Recent story in my area is a young man who recently admitted he was gay. His church kicked him out. Other local churches did take him in, however, their actions and others alike spit in the face of Christ when they hate gays or whatever else.
All sin is sin. There isn't some scale where being gay is up here and lying is down here. All sin is sin and becuase of it we fall short the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Jesus is the way. These people are saved but are mad about it are so distant from Christ it is silly.
My rant, but Biblically sound and something on my mind and heart. Trust me, Jesus loves gays as much as the pope and much as you. Can't love you anymore and will not love you any less.
I'm not even going to start...veedubyo said:This thread should really go to OT but I'd like to follow up.
Sin is sin because God is Holy and will not accept anyone who has. That's why Christians believe that Jesus covered all our inequities by his death (spotless lamb...see Jewish scriptures). ON judgement day there are only 2 places to go, up or down. The ones that do not believe in Christ will be cast down, perish in an everlasting fire. Now, maybe if you commited the "greater sin" then maybe Lucifer can make you his #2.
But forget all that, the more important thing is to live Christlike and let us not judge on how much greater one's sin is. Honor God and the rest will follow

Please don't be the guy on the street with the Burn or Turn posters and bull horn.ckoobs00GLX said:Jesus did eat with the tax collectors. But he didn't condone them being thiefs. Same thing with the adulterous woman. He told her to stop sinning. Hate the sin, love the sinner. yadda yadda yadda
I wasn't arguing against everyone. I was arguing against one person who quoted the bible in his statement.PassatVariantPunk said:Please don't be the guy on the street with the Burn or Turn posters and bull horn.
Yes, you quoted scripture but what good is it when not everyone agrees with the Bible? Then what basis does quoting the Bible have on them...?
