Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

The main problem with the CC is that it encourages beliefs that one needs a priest or saints between themselves and God. Christian pastors and teachers - yes, we need them. Priests to facilitate our confessions or relationship with God - Jesus is our intercessor and advocate between God and man. The...

Re: Jac3510

Getting off of processed stuff and most sugar has been critical to managing my allergies and my ADD - HUGE difference. If I eat bad, I feel bad - get fuzzy headed, lethargic. Gotta have good exercise habits, too! You really have to carefully read labels, because sugar and fructose corn syrup, sodium...

Bav, all I'm saying is let's please all dial it back a bit - no need to attack the person.

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Bav: "You have all kinds of time to make accusations/assertions, yet conveniently no time to back up your words." Bav, you need to cool it! Rick has defended his position. It's just that you both have different opinions on this issue. And a whole lot of Scripturally knowledgeable Christians would s...

Re: A VERY Close Call!

Bav: I'm actually not sure if being properly seat-belted in would've been better for this person. It seems to me that having been perfectly ejected probably saved him injuries.
I was thinking that as well!

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

Rick: We just don't know. I agree it's unverified. But IF he said it, it's a terrible thing and direction for the church. Again, he's made statements in this direction before. And so if he doesn't personally and clearly denounce it - it's now worldwide news - I would think it's a fairly safe bet th...

A VERY Close Call!

It does not get any closer than this!

Bav: It wasn't directed at me, so it's impossible that I avoided anything in that question.

I do apologize, it wasn't aimed at you.

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

warren631, Do you believe Jesus Christ is God? And no, I'm not asking if you if you believe Jesus Christ is the Father. RickD, Do you believe Jesus is the God of Genesis, the Creator, YHWH, the owner of the finger that wrote on tablets of stone...? And no, I'm no asking if you if you believe Jesus ...

Re: Marriage - It's an Institution

Nicki: It freaks me out a little that my boys are going to be teenagers at a public high school with lots of girls. I don't have any experience of it myself because although I went to public schools, my high school was girls-only - and things are so different now as far as how people interact and t...

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

Rick: And even if Cruz was accurate with what the pope said, being gay, or having an attraction to the same sex, certainly isn't the same as having gay sex. So again, even if it's an accurate account of the pope's words, he didn't condone homosexual behavior, as much as telling a guy that was abuse...

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

The Pope's past comments are certainly in line with this guy's attestment as to what he was told by him. But let's see if he refutes it. Just like his last comments about hell - a PC statement was issued by the Vatican - but the pope was never quoted to have clearly addressed the issue, particularly...

Re: Marriage - It's an Institution

So how can someone, in today's society, tell that their marriage is brought together and it is in-line with God's will ? Well, in the first place, God's will for us is that A) we have free will and B) that we are to enact our free will according to the principles derived from His teachings . If we ...

Pope: GOD made people gay

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2018/05/21/pope-francis-reportedly-tells-gay-man-god-made-that-way-and-loves.html If this story is accurate as reported and the Pope believes gay people were created by God to be so, then what does he think about the denouncements of such behavior in Scripture, as to ho...
