Re: Marriage - It's an Institution

There is already a good man in my life. He was good friend to me and Tomas. We are getting to know each other better. And single? That's the trouble I used to have - finding nice single guys. :roll: Somehow, God put us together. What a gift. Hana, Just make sure he's not a Calvinist. If he is, it m...

Re: Iran vs. Israel

I think in regards to current, real world topics, deflective humour probably isn’t the best choice but what can one expect from a middle aged, pro-Israel, right wing (facetiously throwing that in, because you did 😉) yankie? Throw in an Aarab superlative and you're talking about me. :pound: Byblos a...

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

I don’t know if being gay is wrong. But that isn't really the question, is it? Having struggles against whatever sins we are attracted and tempted to commit - temptation is not sin (unless one causes it). But GIVING IN to certain things God says are sin - behavior and actions that God calls wrong -...

Re: Pope: GOD made people gay

God created humans. In doing so gave us the immense blessing of freewill. In freewill lies sin. It can’t not. Choice as divine as it is creates a uniqueness and diversity in every person and with that creates a unique footprint for every person. Nothing is new under the sun for God. Nothing unknown...

Re: Jac3510

My last thing I gave up with the fructose corn syrup is sugar-free coffee creamer. I LOVE coffee - 2/3 pot a day - but I did switch to decaf! But no way can I drink it black. I've tried stevia and almond milk - which is okay, but it's not creamy (at all). So, I'm experimenting. Tried coconut milk -...

Mel,

I completely agree!

If a blond, middle-aged, Aussie woman, with leftist, anti-Israel beliefs can discern propaganda, anyone can!

Re: God's Ten Commandments? Still valid?

Bav,

It's clear to me that we are just not going to agree on this subject, so I'm going to respectfully cease all discussion with you regarding this.

So, please don't take it personally when I don't respond.

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...

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: 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...
